It is 'understood that some repre
sentatives of the farmers' nonpartisan
league are mingling with the dele
gates in an effort, so it is rumored, to
get an endorsement of the union for
the nonpartisan political program for
controlling the election next fall.
W. J. Taylor, mentioned in con
nection with the nonpartisan league
as a candidate for governor, was in
the city all day yesterday, but left
last night for his home in Custer
county. Since his departure his name
has been coupled with that of Charles
W. Bryan as the possible candidate
for lieutenant governor and governor,
respectively. It is known Mr. Bryan
feels he is enough of a farmer to be
entitled to the support of the non-
part san league for governor, although
he still has the little $16 necessary
to become a member in good standing
safely stored away in his jeans.
Lieutenant Governor Howard also
is in the city. Mr. Howard says little.
He comes out flat footed and says he
ij a candidate for the United State
senate and expects to land.
