BOARD IS PUSHING
Nebraska Exposition Will Be
Held, Strike or No Strike,
NOTE MANY BETTERMENTS
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Sept. 1. (Special.)
Everything is being rushed at the fair
grounds preparatory to the opening
of the big show next week. Secretary
Mellor and his ottice torce .movea
from the state house this morning to
the administration building.
Telegrams have been coming in
this morning asking about prospects
for the fair. The Nebraska fair will
go on irrespective whether a strike is
called and exhibitors of live stock
will be taken care of in case they
- cannot get away after the fair closes.
Improvements made during the
summer at the grounds are very no
ticeable. Cement walks and cross-
. walks have added to the appearance
of the grounds and the comfort of the
visitors, while the new eating house
erected in place of the old ones adds
much to the appearance of the
The show will be held-raiu or
shine, strike or no strike.
Denial That Mayor
Bryan Ever Said :
Brother Would Come
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Sept. 1. (Special.)
Mayor Charles Bryan today, over his
signature, calls down Chairman Lang
horst of the democratic state commit
tee for making a statement for pub
lication that W. J. Bryan would come
to Nebraska and speak for the demo
The mayor wants the people to
understand that he did not ten cnair
- man al.nghorst that Mr. Bryan would
speak for Mr. Wilson, the candidates
for congress and the United States
senate and members of- the state
ticket, and that Langhorst had no
authority to make such a statement.
Mayoh Bryaq wants it distinctly
understood that Tie will not sand for
any statements made by the state
chairman regarding what Mr. Bryan
is going to do and that he has no
authority to make such statements.
Thus the attempt of the democratic
state committee to make the people
think that the democratic path is
smooth falls by the wayside.
