enough plurality for Roosevelt in Los

the entire county, while tboso compil

NEBRASKA.

early today that a Dcmociatlc legis
lature doubtless will bo called upon
to elect a Republican for Unlled States
senator. Ninety-five per cent of the
candidates for the slate legislature
signed "Statement No. 1," which pro
vides that, in the event of their elec

votes separated the returns from the
vote for Dr Harry Lane (Dom.) and
Ben Selling (Rep.), candidates for
United States senator, up to an early

Lane's favor, as It was the first time
since the pollB closed that he had
forged ahead, only to be overtaken by
his rival. Senator Bourne, who made
the race as an Independent, was third,
several thousand votes behind tho
leaders
So far as present figures would in
dicate, Wilson's majority In the state
Is close to 10,000. with Roosevelt and
Taft running close for second place.
The vote Is exceedingly slow to count
owing to the extreme length of the
ballot and the number of remote pre
cincts. Less than a third of the state
total has been reported.
There seems little doubt that tho
woman suffrage measure has carried.

SILENT ON
HIS POLICIES
Gov. Wilson Will Not
Make Statement About
His Course.
Princeton. N. J., No 7. "I think
my right course just now Is to hear
CNenbody and that I should ont
j make any statements."
J This was the answer made by Pres
i Idcnt-elect Woodrow Wilson today to
a scries of requests for statements of
hh attitude on national and Interna
tional questions. He was asked by
'various newspapers about an extra
l session of congress, Canadian reci
procity. International relations, the
I Panama canal and a variety of Issues.
I In line with lib campaign argu
ment that the presidency should be
i conducted "through the common
counsel of the country," he will now,
so far as possible, assume a recep-
tire attitude, rather than one of pro
nouncing himself on issues before he
takes office.
Governor Wilson looked qagorly

"You know that 1 can recognize the

He began slowly to open some of
the letters as he talked.
William Morrlsscy secretary of the
Colorado Brotherhood of Locomotive
