From a Staff Correspondent.!
LINCOLN. July 2D. (Spcclal.)-Demo-crntlc
delegates arrived from Columbus
ttlicro their convention waa held, on a
special train nt 3 oclock this morning.
Most of them had begun to take up their
cUtles around the stato houso about noon
rnd were feeling pretty good over tho
cutcomo of tho confab which they re
garded as favorable to Morehead by a
large majority. Stato houso democrats
tiro all happy. Governor Morehead,
however, will not take too much for
granted and Is today out In tho stato
making a speech at a picnic.
Mnlier nml llrjnn.
Coming down on the. special this morn
ing Prlnco Charllo Bryan and Colonel
John G. Maher pulled off a spcctacular
hot air performance lasting something
less than un hour, whether tho reso
lutions passed really endorsed tho work
of Senator Hitchcock or otherwise. Colonel
Maher Insisted that tho democrats of
Nebraska gave the senator a complete
endorsement of his stand while tho prlnco
contended tlyit the endorsement was per
. scnal and not a political endorsement.
They could not fully finish the discussion
because tho train arrived at Lincoln and
they had to get off.
However, democrats na a general thing
say that the convention was strongly
Hltchcock-Morehead, though the Bryan
fellows appear to try to get consolation
out of tho fact that Thompson was re
tained as chairman. Hut Hitchcock fol
lowers' Insist that tho real test of tho
matter came on tho selection of a secre
tary whon Kcmbel, tho Bryan candidate
lost out to Sprague, tho Hitchcock candl
dnto by a large majority.
There Is little controversy as to what
the republican convention stood for. Its
platform In the mind of republican who
still linger In Lincoln means but one
thing and that Is that republicans are to
gether and with a strong candidate to
head the tick f victory Is assured In
Iteinilitleaiis nml I'rlmnrr
Tho fight over the primary plank of
tho platform was not as serious as It
looked at tho time, and came about mostly
from a misunderstanding of the platform,
Somo oftho delegates seemed to thlnl
that tho plank recommended tho entlro
abolition of the primary, when In fact
It only wiped out the selection of stato
and congressional candidates by tho
primary, but left tho primary system to
be used In counties whero delegates to
the stato convention could be elected by
the primary system. In the uproar which
followed. In which tho heavy rain falling
on the ro of tho convention hall mado It
Impossible for tha chairman to make
himself heard very far away, many dele
gates seeming to misunderstand tho pur
port of tho plank, but nftcr a better
undcmtandlng came It could be easily
Fcen that the convention whllo believing
that some changes were necessary.
thought It better to trust the matter to
the legislature, rather than to mako it a
florr CniidldnteH Sized Up.
Tho gossips are talking of the way th
different candidates for the governorship
nomination sized up when called before
tha delegates. Both Rons' Hammond and
Senator Kemp enlisted quick response and
aroused real enthusiasm. Mr. Steven's
nppearance was practically his Intro
ductlon Inasmuch as he was not known
tr many, but his hearers warmed up to
Mm when he spoke right out In meeting.
Tho saddest spectacle of nil was R. B,
Howell ,who was greeted hy but feeblo
applause, mdstly frqm his llttlo clrclo
nt l.nnrnntrr rnnntv boosters, and what
ho said did not seem to Interest his hear
crs particularly his recital of Omaha's
troubles, and hlfl one idea of bonds for
water power development.
And then before It could turn around
the Howell battleship was hit a Jolt by
the Velser gun boat, which almost sent
it to the bottom. Yelser, at any rate, did
not loso any friends when ho showed up
Mr. Howell, and satirized his gallery
playa. He mado a hit when he apologized
frr not being able to campaign the state
In a grand touring car, and again when
ho tald, that while ho favored municipal
ownership, he drew the lino at paying
j::,000,000 to a set of plutocrats more than
their property was worth.
The same indications of relative lop
ularlty were visible at the hotel where
tho candidates had their headquarters
Kemp's and Hammond's rooms wcro
cowded all of the time, while Howell sat
in his corner with only a few stragglers
to reward his watchful waiting.
A few of the candidates still linger
around the hotel this forenoon. Ross
Hammond of Fremont, candidate for gov
ernor was consulting with friends around
tho lobby of the Llndell.
Senator J. H- Kemp of Fullcrton left
for home on un early morning train, but
his headquarters at tho Llndell will re
main open until after primary, whon ho
bays he expects to keep them open until
after November. R. G. Douglas, editor
of the Osceola Republican 1s In charge of
tho Kemp headquarters fora few days
until Mr. Kemp returns the last of the
week when arrangements will be mado
lor someone to take permanent charge.
Mr. Blnny of the Fullerton Post, who
has charge of Mr. Kemp's campaign
n rth of the Vlatto may put in some
time. In the headquarters, while Mr. Doug
las Is looking after Kemp's Interests In
the south Platte country.
