(TYom a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, fb. 7. (Special.) The fun
that democrat ' have been making over
the fact that the republican hivd a
superabundance of candidate for the
nomination for governor may be turned
In their direction at the rate filings are
The last week three candidates grew
where none had grown before and this
weak there are indications of more. Those
Interested In the already complicated sit
uation In that party are Interested In the
rumor that petition are out for Food
Commissioner Harman for the nomina
tion. Mr. Herman would ny very little, but
admitted that one petition In his behalf
had already reached his office. It has
Ion; been known that the food commis
sioner would like to be governor of Ne
braska, but a the present primary dis
franchises the poor man, unless he can
find someone to back him with sufficient
dough to make It Interesting, llarms i
say he has been steering clear of the
proposition. But those petitions look
good, to him, and as Harman has some
pretty well-to-do friends he might be aole
to find the backing.
More MoreheaA Petitions. --
Petitions for Governor Morchead to
enter the race for the X'nlted States sen
ate continue to pour Into the executive
office with a' well assorted supply of
personal letters urging the governor to
get .Into the race. In the present chaotic
condition of things senatorial! In the
democratic party a whole lot of people
are still of the opinion that the governor
will, get In before the time come to
close up the filing mill.
Mayor Bryan, Edgar Howard and Ig
natius Dunn of Omaha were in conference
here the latter part of last week and It
Is .expected that there may be some de
velopments from that meeting aoon. It
is well known that Bryan and Howard
have been urging Dunn to get Into the
senatorahlp race, but whether they have
been able to convince that gentleman that
the time U propitious Just now Is not
Governor Is Feared.
It is pretty well understood , that both

feet of those petition on the governor
has been determined.
However, It makes little difference what
the outcome will be, the country is going
to be saved, anyhow, for Felix Newton

so an interesting campaign Is assured.
Mr. Newton like neither Bryan, Hitch

the campaign all of these gentlemen might
