Lincoln, Neb . JIarch K Great pre-ure
will be brousht to bear by Nebraska Demo
crats upon Mr Bran to induce him to at
tend the National Com ration. The matter
was broached to him by prominent members
of the party In attendance at the State Con
tention last week, but he was then disin
clined to diseu-- tin. matter, sajins that lie
never cro--ed a stream until he came vUth
in jumping distance He mule the polve
statement, however, that he would not co,
and this has encouraged the delicate to be
lieve that if the convention invites him he
will come. Kansas Citv ls but 1S3 miles
from Lincoln, and a special train would land
nim in that city within live hours.
Mr. Hran has no great reverence for pre
cedent, as his campaisnlnff in ISM prove-,
but he Is Inclined to lelieve that it would b
bad taste to present himself at Kansas City
In the attitude of a setker after the nomina
tion. The Invitation and the special train
plan obviates objection on the score of im
propriety, and provides an excellent oppor
tunity that it is believed will appeal to Mr.
Bryan to open the campaign au-piclousy.
The Nebraska delegation returned from
Kansas Citv to-day. havimr -(.cured quar

Assistant Circuit Attorney Samuel B.

what hJd tranplred In the Graml Jur)
room, and that to discu-s at any length
legal questions hearing iin the city Han
investigation might cati.-e inferences lo Iia
dniwn as lo what did occur He arted
that the ' puhh-hctl rejiort of his attitude
toward the indirtmeni of tit) ollkials by
the Slate Court was absolutely false.
'There is no reason in the world why the
Grand Jury should not return an Indictment
against an) body, regardless of his otltcial
... " ,ne eviuence warrants huch ac
tion.' he said. "The relations or city and
State cut no figure in that case. There are
some offenses which are vunishahle only
under city ordinance s, but these are minor
matters, such as throwing piper on tho
streets, for instance. Other offenses are In
-violation of both State laws and city ordi
nances, and pro-ecutlon may be begun un
der either, but mu-t be completed In the

liable for the acts of hi- subordinate's is

upon clrcum-tances If he knew of the un

the time or commission, he would lie con

had been committed before he discovered
it. and h then helped the gulltv one to
cover trp his wrongdoing and escape punish

"I do not believe that members of the
Grand Jury have made the statements cred
