Lincoln, May 21, (Special.)
Facing a condition which looks to the
almost certain selection of Charles E.
Hughes for the republican nomina
tion for president, Nebraska demo
crats coming to Lincoln are not in a
mood to smile very broadly. Prob
ably this condition could not be more
fittingly expressed than by remarks
by two prominent democrats, one liv
ing in Omaha and the other in Lin
coln, made this morning.
"Who are you going to nominate
at your national convention?" asked
the Omaha democrat of a Lincoln re
publican, t Looks Like Hughes.
"Jt looks to me like Hughes," re
plied the republican ,
"Well, to be frank about it," an
swered the Omaha man, "if you nom
inate Jiugnes, 1 will admit that he
will make Wilson go somr."
1 he Lincoln democrat simply said:
"Jf Hughes is the nominee of the
republicans, I am of the opinion that
Wilson will not be able to defeat him.
I would not want you to quote me
as saying it, hut that is the way it
looks to me. and what makes it more
the certain is that f believe both fac-
tiona of the republicans will get be
hind him in nice shape. "
This probably expressej the feeling
of a maionty of democrats in this
siare ano it is not an unusual thing
to hear them make comment like
In a trip to the western part of
trie siaie last week- I lie Hce repre
sentative met and talked with many
republicans ind democrat",, and the
almost unanimous expression among
republicans that they believe Hughes
to be the logical man completely
knocks in the head any pretense that
the Nebraska delegation to the con
vention would not be larrying out
the wishes of Nebraska republican in
helping nominate Mr. Hughes, and
the general furling among democrats
talked with, that Hughes would be
a hard man for President Wilson to
combat, indicates the wisdom of re
publicans in raxtinrr their eye. in the
direction of the New York man.
Only Ray of Hope.
' Somehow 'democrats cannot find
much fault with Judge Hughes. They
say he will not accept, which appears
to be the only ray of light coming to
them, and it is a safe proposition to
consider that should Judge Hughes
be nominated, he will receive a
large number of democratic votes
Another thing which is giving dem
ocrats cold shivers whenver they
look in the direction of the republi
can party is the strength of the state
ticket. Judge Sutton, republican
nominee for governor was in Lin
coln last week and it was noticed
that many promising aupport were
men formerly lined up on the other
side. Among the number were 11. E.
Sacked of Beatrice, , who two years
ago ran for governor on the bull
moose ticke. It is generally admitted
that with a man like Hughes head
ing the national ticket Nebraska
ought to regain her old time repub
lican majority, and on top of it elect
a republican state administration artel
a republican legislature.
