FBI 1AY, AUGUST 18, 11)10. NKVI1E IS SATISFIED WITH OUTLOOK FOB SUCCESS. (Lincoln Journal.) Regardless of any and all Impres sions to tho contrary Keith Neville, democratic nomlneo Tor gcovcrnor, Is satisfied with tho democratic outlook and with tho party organization back of his candidacy. If the demcratlo nominee has a grlevancb,fsuc'h' griev ance Is directed at the anti-saloon league of Nebraska. Such satisfaction and such grlovance weY3 aired' by Mr. Neville in his room at tho Lincoln ho tel Friday afternoon. Keith Neville Is doing tho picnics. Ho atended a gathering at Eagle Thursday night and is booked for a celebration at Dorchester Saturday. His timo in Lincoln was spent on a get-acquainted itour with democrats. Ho spent much of tho afternoon at tho city hall. Regardless of rumor that Candidate NovJllo did not pay a visit to Mayor Bryan at, tho city hall and that the mayor did not call at tho'candldate's quarters at tho hatol, It was assured by the candlduto himself that all is harmonious within tho ranks and that lines of ens to and discrimination liavo been washed away. If tlioro Is a rlfflo on it lie democratic sea, such rlfflo Is without and boyond tho knowledge of Mr. Novlllo. Tho head of tho democratic ticket is outspoken In denunciation of tho campaign methods of tho anti-saloon league. Tho latter organization Is ac cused of alleging that a candidate Is unsafe unless ho stands firmly In fa vor of the adoption of tho proposed dry amendmont, Mr. Novlllo Is op posed to tho amendmont as a political jlicasuro. "A man's porsonal vlowa should not ontor Into a stafo political Issue," says tho candidate. Mr. Nev ille argues that tho fundamental prin ciple of tho Initiative and referendum is that all issues submlbtod to po'pu-. lav voto shall bo non-partisan, The head of tho democratic stato ticket bolloves ho Is a safo man. Ho argues that 'since ho carried his homo city, 420 to 04, at tho rocont primary, such tribute should carry somo wolgty ns to his ability and qualification to vcarry out tho will of tho people. Ho Insists (lint both .himself and tho re publican nominee are pledged by tho eamo bond. To enforce tho amend ment if It carries and becomes a law. Slnco both democratic and republican uro bound by the samo 'plodgo ties, Candldnto Novlllo cannot appreciate tho stand taken by tho anti-saloon league, Although opposed to tho amendment ns a political issue, Mr. Neville said that tlmo for a discussion of tnorit of the mcasuro must bo reserved for election day. Ho would not venture an opinion as to the likelihood of pas sage of tho amendment. "It's too early to venture a prediction." Although Friday was a comparatively cool) day In Lincoln tho democratic candidate was found in his room collarlass and in shirt sleeve. Atmospheric condi tions had small effect on a political battlo In which tho heat was nlrealy notlcablo. Mr. Neville expressed satisfaction over progress already made. He was pleased with tho personnel of cam paign managers. He Is of tho opinion that tho democrats will win this fall. so LOCAL AND PERSONAL Mr. and Mrs, C. J.
