Governor Announces Definitely that
He Cannot Become Candidate
MAY GO TO BRYAN BY DEFAULT
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Jan. 26. (Special.)
Gloom deep -louds of gloom
hung over the state house today, so
dark and dreary that even the storm
clouds appear like bright spots in
the political canopy above. This is all
caused by the announcement by
Governor Morehead that he would
not under any circumstances be a
candidate for governor for a third
nomination at the hands of the dem
ocratic party, or accept the petitions
now appearing at the office of the
secretary of state asking that his
name be placed on the primary bal
lot. To newspapermen who called at the
executive offtoe after the governor had
returned from Omaha, he said that he
could not see bis way clear to accept the
filings and would not be a candidate for
How about the nomination for the
United States senatef asked a reporter.
f oaalderlnsr feaatorshlp.
The governor took a sldewlse glance at
the representative of an Omaha demo
cratic paper, who was in the group, and
then, with a twinkle In one eye, winked
the other at a couple of others, and said:
I am considering that matter now."
"Oh, governor," solemnly and beseech
ingly put in the Omaha reporter, "your
announcement that you would not be a
candidate for governor has taken the Joy
all out of life; don't make it any worse."
The governor smiled and with" a wink at
the other fellows, announced that tomor
row he would make a written statement
of his position, but did not care to say
very much today.
Democratic cohorts seem to believe now
there is nothing to It but the nomination
for Mayor Charles Brysn, or to let the
place go by default. '
One heartless democrat promptly said
when the matter was mentioned that the
place might go by default or Mayor
Bryan fill It, "Well, it would be all the
same anyway, so what's the use."
Let Semeoae Else Do It.
Governor Morehead says that he ia.no
refusing to become a candidate from any
fear of the outcome, but simply that he
does not believe that he should be ex
pected to lead tho party again, but that
there are others who could Just as suc
cessfully do so. He thinks that there is
a good chance for democratic success, but
that some other democrat than himself
should "hop to It." '
When told by a Bee representative that
Governor Morehead had announced that
be would not run for a third term Mayor
Charles "W. . Bryan .appeared pleased.
This Is the first I had heard of It," he
Said. When asked about the petitions be
ing circulated in his behalf and which,
yesterday he had denied knowledge of, he
said that they were being signed up
merely as a testimonial of the signers'
confidence in him, but that he had not
yet fully decided what he would do when
the petitions of confidence were filed.
Orraa Has Not Decided.
"I recognise that the democratio party
this year needs a man at the head of the
ticket," said the mayor, "who will take a
firm stand on the, question of the liquor
business, but whether I will be the man
I do not yet know."
The mayor did not seem at all dlseon
solate over the announcement of the gov-
ernor and it may be considered a pretty
safe bet that when the "petitions of con
fldence" are filed that the mayor will not
take any chance that the time limit for
accepting the same win expire, but will
show a great deal of confidence in him
self by accepting.

for th,e revised proposal eventually

The president continued during

ship bill particularly with Majority

Mr. Anderson said there was danger In
Great Britain attempting the Impossible,
by seeking to be almlltaneouaty a great

be different after the war, adding:
"It will be a hard and a bad world for '

Sexton Resolattoa Passed.
The first resolution was tneveri . by
James SextonV on behalf of tbe National
Union of Dock Workers. The resolution
expresses "the horror of .the confarenoe
at the attrocltles committed by Germany
and its allies", and pledges the conference
to assist the government as far as pos
sible to prosecute the war successfully, .
Mr. Sexton said he was opposed to mil
itarism, but that the war must be won.
"If Germany wins." ha- continued,
"nothing else on God's earth matters."
Ilainsay MaoDonald, labor member of
parliament, appealed for toleration. He
deprecated such a controversial resolu
