Three- men in the campaign for demo
cratic victory am conceded by all to be
worthy of great consideration by the gov

the democratic state committee, who en
gineered the campaign which landed five
democratic state officers and a nonparti

Harmon, who engineered Governor More

. dorr Sufficient for Two.
But strangely, two of these worthy
patriots want nothing, so It Is said. It
has been glory enough for them-to have
seen their efforts rewarded, and they
care not for political preferment. Secre
tary Sprague Is already on the state pay
roll as court reporter to Judge Corcoran
of the Fifth district. He wants nothing
more. Oaddis hus been secretary of the
state tax commission the last two years
at a salary of $10 a day. To the averages
newspaperman like Oaddls, this ought to
look like a gold mine, but unfortunately
the legislature fixed a time limit on the
number of days,, and sixty was all that
could be counted.
"Gad" has managed to get In the sixty
days all right and many of his friends
can testify that he has drawn the pay by
numerous participations in the . results.
Clarence Harman has been mentioned in
connection with the State Board of Con
trol, but he denies that he wants the
job. To The Bee, before the election,
Harman said he was perfectly In love
with hla present Job as food and oil com
missioner and had fairly got storied, and
in the event of Governor Morehead's re
election ho would like to finish the work
he had begun and which he desired to see

Bo it is probable that these three po

found doing in the next two years what
they are: doing now, with the exception
of Mr. Qaddiii, whose office expires when
the tax commission makes Its report to'
the . legislature, unless the commission
fthould be continued, which there is some
talk of doing." In thitt case Mr. Gaddi

CONVICTS SQ0NT0 BE IDLE
Nebraska Will Face Proposition Pro
viding Work for Them.
OTHER STATES IN SAME FIX
Iowa lias Similar Problem nnd Be
lief Kxlsts that Prisoner Should
Re Kept Rosy on
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Nov. 26. (Special.) "What
shall wo do with our convicts?" Is a
question discussed by Warden Fenlnn
and the mcmbeis of the State Board of
Control, since It has been discovered that
the broom factory contract will not be
renewed In the future so as to employ
the bulk of the men now In the peni
tentiary. Warden Fenton wns In consultation
with the board this morning' covering
general matters at the penitentiary and
to The Bee Volunteered the information
that the problem of keeping prisoners
busy will soon have to be solved.
"Other states are facing a much
greater proposition than Nebraska has to
face," said the warden. "Only recently
Warden" McCloughrey of the Iowa peni
tentiary, with one of the members of the
Iowa board came to Lincoln to see what
we were, doing with our Inmate and for
the further matter of talking over con
ditions. They have about 1,000 prisoners
there who ought to be put to work at
something to occupy their time. Okla
homa has about 1,400 men In Its prison
who arc unemployed, while other states
are complaining about the situation."
Honil Work dotation.
Tho warden Is firm in tho belief that
the men hero ought to be utilised in
building roue's and says that he could
furnish a largo force for roml work If
the legislature would tako some action
along the line of building roads. He likes
the Idea of Mayor Zehrung of Lincoln,
who would llko to see a mucadam road
between here and Omaha and believes
that the stato ought to take hold of the
matter ns soon na possible.
When the broom contract runs out 2!9
men will have nothing to occupy their
time and an idle man Inside the walls Is
a harder proposition to handle than a
busy man outside the prison, according
to the experience of tho warden.
Holiday n State House.
Tho state house will be cl6sed generally
tomorrow. It Is probable that the usual
custom of oponlnt a few minutes in the
morning to receive the first delivery of
mall, if one is made, will be observed
in the more Important offices, but In the
afternoon the Llneoln-Topeka high school
foot ball game will receive the attention
of a goo dslisre of the statehouscltes.
