LINCOLN , Jan. 10. ( Pficclal. ) The meet
Ing cnllcd hy the mlddlo-of-thc-road populist
atSt , Louis this week with the avowed objcc
of calling a convention and nominating candl
dates for president and vlco president dur
Ing the coming summer has stirred up
pretty largo undercurrent of Interest end ex
cltcmcnt In populUt official circles here , al
though strenuous efforts liavo been ma do t
l e p the uamo from the public. It I * knont
that numerous letters have been written an
received hero to prevent this action , whlcl
would probably spilt the populist party mor
curiously than the democratic r < rty Is ryllt
Hitherto the plan of the fiuloti clement In th
populist party has been to Indoieo Brjan fo

cratlc circles It Is learned that the visit o
tlcorgo Kred Williams to Nebraska was fo
the express purpose of organizing n move
ment la his behalf for the vlco prcsldcnc
in the west and tbtft this was with Mr
llryan's approval. This action of t'.ie demo
crats has greatly alarmed the populist man
cgeia who know that they are likely to b
BWipt out of power If they attempt to cart
the mass of populist voters Into the demo
cratlc v irty. Hitherto they have affected t
rldlculo the mlddlc-of-thc-roodcra , but as th
hand of dcmoctacy becomes more plain the
BCD that the middle-of-the-road movement I

party that would leave them stranded with
out votes enough to even trade upon.
Deputy Auilltor Pool has been reading 'Jio
Btatutca relating to tlio matter of sheriff's
fees anil has como to the conclusion that In
cases where a penitentiary sentence haa bison
pasaoJ and the prisoner Is not Immediately
brought to the penitentiary the sheriff tan
only collect for the board of the prisoner
at the rate of $3.EO per week. Heretofore the
rate paid hy the county has been 75 cents
per day. Mr. Pool takes < m his authority for
making the new rule the only part of the
fibitutes which relates to fees for board of
prisoners , which reads ns follows : "Whsro
there are prisoners 'confined ' In the county Jill
$ l.no i > er day shall bo allowed tJio shorlff ns
jailer. For boarding prisoners per ilay not
exceeding 75 cents per day , nor more than
$3.1)0 per week , when the prisoners arc ccn-
fltMtl moro than six da > s. " This clause re
lates to the charges to ho pild hy the county.
After sentence the expense Is ] ld by the
elate , but there being no different rate
specified the deputy auditor has ruled that
tiio state shall pay no higher rate than docs
the county. This will particularly affect
sheriffs in counties where there are secure
Jails und wiicro the usual practice Is to Kttp
the prisoner almost the cnllro thirty days'
tlmo allowed after sentence before bringing
lilm to the penitentiary.
Sheriff Dow of Ilarlnti comity came up to
day to turn ex-Treasurer Kzra Whitney over
to the warden of the penitentiary. Whitney
appears very much broken ilonn over the
prospect of nerving out the two and one-half
years' sentence passed upon him by the
court , outwardly betraj Ing more emotion than
docs Mills , who shared with Whitney In tl'o
embezzlement of the county money , nnd who
has ( t sentence of five years before him.

cuss the matter of the appointment of a Joint

freight shipments from the .various roads.
After a desultory discussion of the subject
notion on the joint nptnt matter was deferred
to n ( jubscqucnt meeting , to ho cnllcd by
A resolution was adopted declaring It to
bo the sense of the meeting that the expo-
sltlon management should formulate n plan
for transferring freight to the exposition
grounds which Is received at the local depots
In less than carload lots.
Those participating In the meeting weio

Conversation among the freight men after
the meeting adjourned developed the fact
that the conference had not been altogether
sweet harmony. The proposition to establish
a Joint agency at the exposition grounds
was brajched by General Aqcnt Kuhn of the
Northwestern , but It did not appear to meet
with general fax or. Mr. Kuhn said he sug
gested It because such an Institution had
rendered first-class service to the railroads
and to the shippers at the World'o Colum
bian Exposition. Ho read reports from the
gratlcman who acted as Joint agent there
regarding the work of the agency. Itas
In existence o\cr two years , and though the
Joint age-nt started In with one assistant he
wns soon compelled to run 'in olllco with
ninety-live assistants , so greatly did the work
Incrcarv Mr Kuhn had considerable ex
perience with the agency In 1S93 , and said
It would have been Impossible for the Chicago
cage railroads to handle the freight for the
World's fair had not such a scheme been
SEVERAL THINGS UNSETTLED.
Some of the representatives of other lines
opposed the appointment of an agency , thcii
chief argument being that the freight ultu
atlon of the Transmlsslsslppl Exposition \\.is
not at all the panic ns that found nt the
World's fair. On account of the opposltloi
drawn forth the proposition to establish a
Joint agency on the exposition grounds here
to look after the handling of less than car
load shipments between the terminals of the
different railroads and the exposition grounds
was withdrawn , at least for the present.
Then It was suggested that the .MIssour
Pacific , the railroad which practically con
trols the snitching to the exposition grounds
handle the transportation of all freight n
less than carload lots from the terminals
of the different lines to the exposition
grounds. This brought Assistant Genera
Freight nnd Pascenger Agent Phllllppt to his
feet with the statement that his line would
not handle any ehlpjnqiUs of freight to tht.
exposition grounds in ICHU than carload lots
This settled that proposition and the freight
men thought again. , , , ,
AB u certain way.outof the dlfilculty of
handling lees than carload shipment ! , from
the terminal * ; ofthe different Hiiro to the
exposition grounds H'was suggested that
ICM than carload shlrlnKTHs bo turned over to
some reliable firm for drayagc. This broughi
out objections from the representatives ol
some ofier llnce. In tb.e meanwhile there
was a llttlo coutroversj on the slue being
waged between the Cncci | Pacific urd the n
& M. Assistant General Agent Smith of the
latter line PAld that , ' 10 far ax his line WES
concerned luj responsibility ended when the
goods were delivered dt the terminal of the
read In this city. "Acslstant General Freight
Agent Lane o the Union Pi-cldc said this
was ull wrong , that the responsibility of the
line did not cna until the goods were de
livered at tbo exposition gates , and on thla
miestlen the rest of the freight assemblage
broke about even. The matter lu dispute
was not finally ecttlcd.
CHANCE FOR EXPOSITION.
A prominent freight man eald after the
conference adjourned without accomplishing
anything : "It looks to me as though this
question of how shipments of lcs.3 tiian car
load lots should bo handled from the ter
minals of the lines to the exposition grounds
will be finally settled by the cx-pcsltlon under-
takkig the work itself. If the managers of
the exposition nro wise that Is Just what they
will do. They can take less than carload loti
and mike them up Into oarlcad lots , have
them shipped out to the exposition grounds
and charge double the cost of handling tiiu
car. In this way the exposition exchequer
would bo readily reimbursed without ecpccial
hardship to eny one. I have no doubt but
that from $ . " ,000 to $10,000 coulJ be added
to the exposition's exchequer In th's way.
This would certnlnly bo u better course to
purauo than to ruako any concession to any
ilrayugo firm for hauling less than carload
lots from the terminals of the lines to tlir
cxpcsltlca gatco. The drajago schema Is not
Impracticable , but I think the plan of faavlng
the Transportation department undertake the
work Is much better , and It would certainly
bo moio profitable to the exposition. The
only other way out of the difficulty is to Jiavo
the Missouri Pacific railroad handle the ship
ments leas than carloads , and that It refuses
to do. "

admitted tltat there Is much fairness In the
