buildings In the last minutes of Ids nd
uiinlstraflon was strengthened today when !
It became known that Dr. N. T. Johnson,
one of tho governor's bull mooso lieu
tenants. Is securing a largo number of
signatures to a recommendation for his
appointment to the board.
So far the governor has refused to deny
tho report that ho Is planning to retain
his grip on tho state machine through tho
now board of control for use two years
hence. That Dr. Jjohnson, with his record
aH a bull moose organizer In Franklin
county, would not attempt to land tho ap
pointment under Governor-elect Morehcad
Accordingly, at the state house It was
pointed out that his activity means that
he lias some assurance from Governor
Aldrich to gather as many recommenda
tions as possible and get himself in line
for an appointment.
A few months ago ho was a candidate
for appointment on tho board of health
secretaries. This was ubandoned with
tho defeat of Governor Aldrich, as there
will not be a -acancy on this board until
next July. v
Hut ono thing now threatens to block
Governor Aldrlch's scheme to appoint the
Hoard of Control, and thereby dictate the
appointments in fourteen Btate institu
tions. That thing is tho provision in thn
amendment that before tho governor'
appointment becomes absolute it must be
approved by two-thirds of tho state sen
ate. With tho senato lineup eighteen

The Btate argued that the location had
been elBewhero and that the "beer bottle

The court a year ago after a long trial
decided In favor of the state, but granted

That William J. Bryan will enter Into
the Hltchcock-"Iowa plan" federal pa
tronage controversy In Nebraska, through
the medium of "Brother" Charley, was
Indicated by C. W. Bryan here today.
Mr. Bryan refused to be quoted, but ho
did point out what he believed was an
attempt by Senator Hitchcock to "get
Chairman Thompson in bad" through the
publishing of tho correspbndence between
tho chairman and tho senator.
"I will have something to say in a few
days," Mr. Bryan said. "Let it brew a
while and then I'll get in."
T. S. Allen, Mr. Bryan's brother-in-law,
yesterday sold that-tho national congres
sional delegation who were figuring on
distributing the office "pie" were a little
premature. He Indicated that President
Wilson would mako tho Nebraska ap
pointments and that the president would
tako his directions from tlie Bryan wing
of Nebraska democracy rather than the
