Not Accept the Nomination.
Lincoln, Xeb., May 6 The snpreme
court of the state yesterday rendered a de
cision in the Boyd-Thayer quo warranto
ease, ousting Boyd and declaring Tbayer
tle legal governor of Nebraska. Tbe

After quoting the constitution relating
to aliens t proceed to the queHtion of
the successors hip, and disposes of the
claims of Lieutenant Governor Majors
by statin;; that when the person receiving
the highest number of votes for the office
of governor is ineligible, under tbe consti

Boyd Ready to Submit at Once.
The duties of the chief executive office
of the state devolve upon the lieutenant
in certain contingencies, among which
are the failure of the governor-elect to
' qualify, or the disability of the governor.
It cannot ba said that there has b?en a
failure to qualify where no person has
been constitutionally elected to the office,
The writ of ouster was served on Gov
ernor Boyd at 5 o'clock. He received it
calmly and said: "I am ready to turn
over the office now."
Too Late to File the Motion.
Tiis attorney, John 1). Howe, of Omaha.
'Who had just arrived, requested him to
wait a moment, and immediately went to
tre supreme court-room to file a motion
for a stay, but as the judgment had al
ready been entered and the writ served, it
was too late. The opinion was signed by
Chief Justice Cobb and Jnstice Norville,
Justice Maxwell dissenting. It is stated
that Mr. Boyd will carry the case to tbe
supreme court of the United States. The
decision on tbe whole xuay be said to be a
surprise, the opinion being that in the

HE TAL KED WITH BLAINE.
And the "I'rtmltr" Itemarked That lie
Would Be "WilliuV
New Yokk. May 6. A special from
Washington City says that a distin
guished Democratic ex-senator from the
west who is a warm personal friend of
James G. Blaine, took dinner with that
gentleman recently, and the latter talked
of the presidency. Mr. Blaine intimated
to this that gentleman he felt he had given
the administration much more than he
had received, and he resented being set
aside by "routbful scions of would-be roy
alty." - Would Not Refuse Nomination.
While he would not actively Reek a nom
ination at the hands of tbe Republican
party at the next convention, Mr. Blaine
would not refuse it if offered. On the
contrary he would feel that twenty years
of unswerving loyalty cn the part of the
Republican party to him had the first
claim upon him, and if nominated he
would undertake the campaign and do tbe
test he could to secure party success on a
reasonable platform. Asked to define a
"reasonable platform," Mr. Blaine replied:
"A moderate tariff and reciprocity."
I rom a "Must Intimate Friend."
PoRiLAS-n, Me.. May G.-Oue of Secre
tary Blaine's most intimate friends com
menting on the editorial announcement
in Frank Leslie's declaring Blaine out of
the race for the presidency in 180 J, said:
"Mr. Blaine is not a candidate, it is
true; neither does he want to be. No one
has any riglit to make such statements
as the oue. that appeared in Russell Har
rison's paper. TlrOse who thiuk that an
other 'Flore uceT letter is on the tapis are
mistaken. If President Harrison can be
nominated and elected, then Blaine will
stand loyally by his chief and do every
thing possible to help him, but this talk
that ha pledged himself to do so.two years
ago is nil moonshine. 11a has never
said he would not b a candidate.
Stories To lie Taken with bait.
"He has some fool friend3 who are do
ing their best to aid his opponents by cir
culating silly reports, but when you see a
statement that' Mr. Blaine told so and so
what his plans were, don't you believe it.
I saw an interview attributed to Congress
man Boutelle and Tom Payne, in which
both are made to declare that tbe secre
tary is thinking of immediately announc
ing his absolute and final decision not to
be ac.'io.lt'.lt-.e. I don't believe they made
these statements and if they did, I know
they made them without authority."

arguments on the World's fair appropria'
tion from Chicago representatives of the

Then a motion to adopt a bill making the
appropriation $500,000 was defeated 51 to

and the bouse adjourned.

any one," lie said, "bnt when the Wor
rells return we shall see what they say."

ing the strike situation, but has taken no
action as yet. The block coal operators
still re.use to accept the individual con
tracts of miners at last year's rate, insist

operators are waiting for the settlement
of the block coal strike, when they will
insist apon a mining rate 15 cents les

cents hist yetir. The cousequence is that
there is a split between bituminous and
