(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Neb.. May 13.-(SpecUl.)-A
motion picture machine that would be
quick enough to catch the rapid evolu
tions of tho several democratic factions
In their otforts to discover something
which would save them from defeat this
fall, would probably dlsclo.c more double
crossing and misrepresentation than at
any time In the history of the democratic
party In the stato.
At the present time the main effort Is
being mado to convince Governor More
head that ho should break his word made
during his campaign for governor, that
ho would not Iks n candidate for a second
term and file agRln for the democratic
nomination. So desperate have they be
como that thry have promised the gov
ernor that It ho files Colonel John G.
Mahrr. who has already filed for the
democratic nomination for governor, will
pull out of the race and turn over his
support to the executive.
When naked about It today, Colonel
"I have not pulled out of the race', ly,
have not told anybody I would get out; I
expect to stay In, and, furthermore, I am
going lo win at the' primaries. The fel
low who thinks that I am going to lay
down on the Job has got another think
coming. I am receiving too many en
dorsements ot my cnn.lldacy and praises
for my stand on certain questions to pull
out ot the rnco nt this early day.
"Somo people are taking a drive at mn
saying I am the liquor men's candidate.
I never received accent from a liquor
man In my life qr voted for one Just bo
causo he wns a wet man.
"Look here," and ulllng a letter from
his pocket, he showed It to a couplo ot
ncwi-paper men. "Hero Is a letter from
a temperance man who has known me all
his life. Head It."
T,ho letter disclosed that while the
writer was a dry man ho admired the
stand taken'hy Colonel Mahcr on the wet
proposition and said he proposed to sup
port him becauso his platform meant
"The democratic party has been pulled
around, hero and there, hither and
thtthor, too long by tho Bryans," said
Colonel Mahcr. "King William and
I'rlnco Charlie have used tho party for
their own personal welfare Just as long
as they .are going to If I can have any
Influence with Nebraska democrats. They
have betrayed their friends, punished
tholr enemies, gone back on Instructions
given them by conventions and usod
means to accomplish their ends whlrh
would bo condemned It used along busi
ness lines. I propose to see that the dem
ocratic party of Nebraska Is freed from
these barnacle, nnd any man who says
that I am considering pulling out for
Governor Morehead or any other demo
crat doesn't know what he Is talking
about and Is simply misrepresenting the
matter to the governor."
Colonel Mahcr expects to go to New
York next week, hut on his return will
open his campaign and the fur will fly
from then on.
