New Youk, June 2. Nebraska pol

Omaha In today's II orW. The farm

rates and calling for a reduction In the

these matters. Tlierc It danger of a
split In the ltcpubllcan party. No one
dare say that an election called to-day
would find the State Itepttbliean. At

whip the rank and file Into line, but the
patty lash seems to have lost II ter

made about May t. when five of the
most persistent oltlce-seekers In the
State met at Lincoln and lsued a call
for an anti-monopoly Itepttbliean con

wresting the control of the Itepubllcan
party from the hands of the railroad
corporations of the Slate." This de

The trial of Frank K. Ward for the
murder of Maurice Adlcr will com
mence a week from today It will
be probably one of the most celebrated
trials that has ever taken place In this
District, owing to the prominence of
the accused ami the many circumstances
of the tragedy.
It has been nearly a year since the
shooting occurred, awl during all of
that time, with ihe exception of a few
i davs. Ward has been Incarcerated In

business man, whose many enterprises
made his name a by-word in every
iiouseboid, but a wreck, awl aa object
of pity to even his worat enemies. He
has changed so much that his Intimate
friends coukl hardly recognize him.
Ward was talking to a friend last
Wednesday night, the night preceding
the execution of Hawkins, while sev
eral reiortera stood a little distance
away awl watched him. He appeared
nervous awl ill at case, and kept con
stantly chanting hla position in bis
