tary of State Pool of Nebraska today
announced that, he would grant the

of the supreme court and withdraw
the latter'a -name from the"Nebrask

day of November. 1916.

The fact that the Judge emphasises his
refusal to bocome a candidate by making
his request apply to "this petition and
similar petitions," looks as if he intended
to prevent any similar acts in the future.
"Exercising the authority which I feci
I am warranted In using," said Mr. Pool,
in his communication to the signers, "I
have decided to follow the wishes of Jus
tice Huxhes In this particular case, be
lieving that he, as a member of the high

we do that which, la contrary to the ex
isting laws. Should you feel that I have
erred in this ruling, I shall be pleaaed to
have you take it before the courts of our
of our state for final adjudication."
A similar petition placing on file the
name of Mayor William Hale Thompson
of Chicago as a presidential candidate Is
liefore the secretary of state. It is
understood that Mr. Thompaon will re
quest the withdrawal of his name. Mr.
