Ex-Senator Allen Quoted as Saying
Hat Had Glory Enough
CROFTON MAN NO WMENTIONED
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Jan. 27. Special. )-Th
tiime of Dr. Talrott of Crofton, who Is
now a member of tho State Tardon
fcoard, la mentioned frequently for the
democratic nomination for itoeernor. Vr.
Talcot aerved with considerable glory In
the 1913 session of the Nebraska house of
! lords and la considered an able man.
Allen Not Aailous.
Senator Allen of Madison looks good to
some, but the senator has been heard to
aay that aa United States senator he
achieved sufficient honors to last him for
tho rest of his life and being- governor of
the state, while generally considered an
honor, would not add anything to the
glory of a United States senator, ana, (
besides. It takes money to run for the
nomination, more money to run for the
election If nominated and stll a great ,
deal more to serve after winning the
election, and a Senate Alien wealth
will not quite measure up to that of
Rockefeller or Carnegie, he does not
know whether he wants to be governor
Running for the office Is a small part
of the game. It !s said that the man
who fill sthe office and lives In the big
mansion across the way fronithe state
capltol spends more money than most
men of moderate means can afford.
Governor Sheldon was heard to say
after hie defeat that there was one satls-
fajttlnfi In H o fa t nvwav Ihnt he wnlllft
Te about 17,500 ahead by being deefated.
! Governor Morehead has refused to ac
cept anything from the state for the ex
pense Incident to being governor, outside
of the salary of $2,500 per year. He has
! traveled a great deal at his own expense
'and it Is said that the office will hnve
Icost him considerably more than the
figures made by Governor Sheldon.
Governor Aldrich says tha his family
tried to be as economical aa possible and
passed up many tohlngs which as gov
ernor of tne state he ought to have un
dertaken, and yet In the two years he
wm governor he spent twice the amount
'tf the salary.
Salarlea Too Low.
Speaking further on the matter, he said
tthat the peole of Nebraska should awaken
to the conditions which were growionR,
,for It was beginning to be shown that
'none but a man well fixed financially
'may hope to aspire to any Important of
fice in the state In the gift of the people.
I These thing-, with the general feeling
that there will be hard sledding for any
democrat who aspires to be elected to
'state office this year, has a tendency to
Make the nomination for governor at the
liands of the democratic party in Ne
braska anything but desired.
