XANOOLN. Dec 31. Speclal.)-Only
four days mora to the time when the
democratic caucus must meet to aelect
tho officers of the legislature, and there
la little hero to indicate that any of the
numerous candidate for the important
positions have a sure thing.
Nobodfy ventures to predict the out
come on epeaker. Friends of the several
candidates are close mouthed. Others are
talking the dark home and presume to
think that Norton of Polk will loom up
large when the proper time comes. Some
claim that Norton, beln ga dry man, can
not hope to win in a body which Is con
isldered distinctly wet.
Governor Keeps Ontf
Efforts to bring Governor Morehead Into
the fight so far have proven unavailing.
IThe nearest that the governor has ap
proached to mixing is the activity of one
jot bla appointees. Fire Commissioner
,RldgelL in behalf of F. M. Broome of
Alllanoe. Some have taken this as an
indication that the governor la friendly
to him, and point to the fact that the
governor's private secretary, Andrew Mor
rtssey, being from the same locality aa
Broome, ia the guiding hand in the mat
ter, although not appearing to be so.
Colonel Morrlssey ia what might be con
sidered one of the smoothest politicians
connected with the governor' adminis
tration. His fine Italian hand haa ahown
In many a political move which haa
(proven a success, and while Colonel Mor
rlfisey does not appear on the surface,
many olaJm that his hand Is on the rud
Ider and his eye fixed on the political
compass ao that he knowa Just exactly
'where to guide the Broome submarine In
the coming battle.
Those close to the governor are of the
opinion that personally Governor More
head is taking no hand in the selection of
a candidate for speaker other than in
sisting that the man must be In hearty
ympathy with the executive plans aa to
economy and efficiency and a short
term full of good results. It is .said that
In this matter Colonel Henry Richmond
has assured the governor that he Is with
him In his plan. This has been announced
by Colonel Richmond himself. Other can
didates, especially .Mr. Broome, have
held consultations with the executive and
proclaim that they, too, are with the
exeoutive and unless a dark horse is in
jected into the fight the battle .will be
between - Colonel Richmond and Colonet
Broome, with George Jackson 'hot 'very
far away and Dr. Meredith of Saunders
considerably in evidence. Such appears
to.be the situation four 'day before the
five Ont for Oerk.
On the chief clerkship of 'the house,' it
appears to be a free for aH,- no- candidate
'having the call at this time. All four
candidates who appeared In the fight at
the start appear to be about in the same
position, McKlssIck of Gage, Potta of
Pawnee. Ridgway of Douglas and Davis
of Loup. However the situation has been
changed somewhat since the advent of
T re run ore Cone of Platte county into the
race. Cone belonged to that meinora
ble legislature of 1907 and while he was
a member of the minority party, his voice
was heard among the leaders. Conse
quently he believes that he has a record
i tin which be can stand. He has prepared
'' a program of economy which he claims
has fitted in closely with the plans of ail
members so far who have appeared on
. the ground and today says that his can-
i dldacy looks good enough so that he is
