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. Richmond Willing-' 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 battle, 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 i V not losing any sleep. VV Kot All on Deck. I ' Neither ' Davis nor Ridgway has ap- C Reared on the scene so far. Potts was y here a couple of days the first of tho week, : but McKissick is camping studi ously on the Job and aaya ha has no cause to worry. He, too, haa a program cf economy that looks good and . la not worrying. Potta relies upon his standing with former members and his record of reform to assist in getting the votes and la not making tho strenuous cam paign that so roe of the others are put ting up.
