BODY OF DROWNED BOY
IS BURIED AT WYMORE
DR. P. L. HALL REFUSES TO RUB
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Aug. 28. 8peclat.)-tf the
get-together meeting of the democrats
Saturday night brought about a letter
feeling among the badly demoralised
forces of a once powerful party. It waa
not apparent after the clone of the meet
ing. There wae every Indication that
their short term of power had made them
Intoxicated for office and whll In former
year they have submitted to th leader
ship of Mr. Bryan without much of a
murmur because there was everything
to gain and nothing to lose, now that
the thing has changed around and there
Is everything to lose and nothing much
to gain, they are fearful of the future
and look with suspicion upon Mr. Bryan
or any other leader who appears to want
to boas the party.
The speech of Harry Fleharty of Omaha
was along the line of a get-together
spirit. "It makes no difference whether
you are for Bryan or Hitchcock," said
the Omaha statesman, "be a democrat."
Thia sentiment did not appear to meet
with a hearty response all around and
many were the expressions of disgust
after the thing waa over.
Criticism of Fleharty.
"Harry made a pretty good speech,"
paid one state house democrat, after the
meeting was over, "but darn him," he
needn't think he can make us swallow
Bryan." He didn't say "darn" but some
thing more expressive.
"Some of those fellows will have to
answer to me," said Felix Norton, jour
nalist, historian and statesman. "Some
of the things they said will be met by
me In a way that will make them
It waa noticed that Felix was taking
notes during the speech of governor
Morehead, but that he appeared to be
asleep while Fleharty was talking. Who
will be required to account to the king
for his utterances Is not known, but as
the king is "agin" Bryan, Hitchcock and
the governor, all three, It Is probable that
the trlumverate will find themselves In
bad when Newton calla them to account.
Hall la Not Candidate.
Many listened to Dr. P. L. Hall, ex
pecting something which would give peo
ple a line on how he felt regarding the
effort to push him Into the water for the
governorship. The only thing he said
on this score was the remark: "I have
never asked for an office In my life and
I never will."
When asked by newspaper men later
whether. If forced Into the nomination
he would not make the campaign, he
simply aald that he would never make
the campaign for governor.
Dr. Hall In his speech claimed all the
glory for progressive legislation for the
populists and democrats. He said that
the Omaha platform of the populist waa
the best platform ever made by any party
and with the help of the democrats most
of It had been made into law. The doc
tor evidently forgot all about the republi
can 190V legislautre responsible for most
of the progressive legislation which has
counted for results !n thla state, and also
that the present temporary ascendance of
the democrats comes only from troubles
In the republican party.
Little bunches of democrats gathered
here and there after the speaking, made
it known that the tommahawk and
howle knives discarded by the republicans
have been gathered in by the democrat
and from now on thing will be more than
