merry fight ia now on. George W. Berge
having today accepted the filing made
for him yesterday a a candidate for
the democratic nomination for governor.
This is not the first time that Mr.
Berge has tried to break Into the execu
tive office. In 1904 he put up a fight
for gubernatorial honors against John
It Mickey, but 1st out. In 1908 he was
again candidate, but the democratlo
convention selected A. C. Shallenbergrr
and was elected. In 1912 he again looked
with, longing eyes toward the Job, but
with a magnanimous spirit stepped aside
In order to give Metcalfe a chance to
beat Morehead, but Metcalfe failed to
come up to the requirements.
Iivl914, Mr. Berge cast his weather eye
on the gubernatorial chair and tried con
clusions with Governor Morehead, but
his fellow democrats said him nay and
he went down to defeat, polling only 11.301
votes, while the governor was chasing
merrily along with 39, DM. Metcafe was
runer up with 12,373.
With both Berge and Bryan In the
fight for the place, it will now be up
for the fellows, who have been shying
at the water wagon to find a candidate
who wouldn't know a water wagon If he
aw It. Applications for the job will be
thankfully received, but the sooner they
come In the better.
Grace Ham for Senate.
Senator Jack Grace of Mascot, who
some time ago announced that he would
be a candidate for the democratic nomi
nation for railway commissioner, has
changed his mind. He will essay to come
back to the senate as a common every
day senator and his filing reached' the
office of the secretary of state this
morning. Senator Grace has served two
terms and was one of the fighting; mem
bers of the last session.
He was the senator who walked halt
way across the chamber in a red hot
discussion with Senator Howell of Doug
las at the last session' and, shaking his
fist at the Omaha member, told him he
could not put anything over on the dear
people as long as he could stick his 240
pounds In the way, and the senate didn't'.

LINCOLN. Feb. 4.-(Speclal.)-Apple
growers, apple sellers and retail mer
chants had an Inning before the State
Hallway commission today In an attempt
to agree on some system or charge to
be made for freight cars used by apple
shippers in the distribution of fruit.
It Is the old trouble of charges for
cars used for peddling, and this hearing
Is simply a continuation of other hear
ings. Byron Clark, solicitor for the Burling
ton, was the only representative of the
railroads present. He was asked to
speak first, but thought that the shippers
ought to make some figures which they
believed to be reasonable for the use of
the cars. He said the Burlington was
willing to make a test of the matter for
a year on any reasonable demurrage
charge and se how It would work out.
He said the trouble was In fixing the
j charges, for (he different classes of
t'sl Khwrtnue Plays Part.
foul dealers and like shippers thought
they should be exempt from the charge.
Car shortage was spoken of by Mr
Clark, who said that a very recent check
ing showed the Burlington had about
t,5 cars out of service by reason of
being held, and this made the question
a very UVe one for his company. He
Insisted the shippers alfd retailers should
make some rale which they though
would be light, and the Burlington would
endeavor to come to a fair consideration
of the rate.
One man asked Mr, Clark If the Bur
lington cars were not being used to haul
munitions of warfare, but was told that
they were not, as there were no muni
tions factories on the Burlington, and
no cars were being' used that he knew
of for that purpose.
Instance Front lovrt.
Chairman Clar.e of the commission
said that the interstate commission had
refused to suspend the order of the Iowa
oommisfllon, wuteh practically covered
the same point as that In controversy.
They had a charge of SI per day for the
first two days and 12 for each day thereafter.
rrea Dlers of Madison, representing
the . recall merchants' .association, did not
see why such a practice as furnishing
cars to peddlers should he in rffect. If H on. 1 1 wanted soino arrangement
wlili h would treat all alike. "If we use
lalliosd propeily, we oiilit to be will
Ins to pay for l(," sHld Mr. llsinard.

Idt rliig the session and there appeared to
bo kciicisI feeling that some sort of
chaige which would be fair to eer
I bod) and whK h would be large enough
J to (aiiKe holders of cars to make an pr
iori to get inem unloaded as soon as
possible, noi Id he the proper thing to
put in forte.
It never had been started he thought
such a thing would be cnnstdi-rrri pie
posteroiis If agitated now.
Mr. Oustafson, representing tie Fann
ers union, thought tho utcrrhanis of tho
towns were trying to build a stonewall
about their business, lie said I hey had
been doing for years what the farmers
wanted to do now.
"We are with the merchants, and wot
are with the railroads In an effort to I
fix up this matter." he siiM. 'and if you
Commissioners do not do something t

of progress." lie said that hl organ-

charged, lie revh-wod toe action of the
Itinerant peddler who came into n town'
and sold an inferior grade of apples for ,
lesa than the merchant who had stocked ;
iup with a car of first class fruit. He
said that buyers of the interior fruit
invariably discovered when too late that
they had really paid much more for the
fruit than If they had bought first class
stuff, as sold by the telall merchants. He
said that he recently look a trip out In
the state and discovered In three small
towns a total of eighteen cars of fruit
on the tracks for sale, some of pears,
some peaches and other fruit which
would not keep, and more than possibly
could be consumed by the communities)
In which the cars were being held. A
