NEBRASKA DIVIDES ON LOCAL OPTION Insurgency Among Republicans Introduces New Complications in Bryan's Home State (Asxoctated Press) OMAHA, Neb., Aug. 14.—Next Tues day the state-wide primaries of all the political parties in Nebraska will be held. The campaign for nomina tions has been spirited and the candi dates are numerous. The main i|u«'K- tlon involved Is local option an 1 the situation haw been complicated by "in surgency" in the Republican and the personality of William J. Bryan in the Democratic party. Full state and county tickets are to be nominated, as well as candidate! for members of oongreu and under the "Oregon plan" party candidates for the United States senate to succeed Sen ator Elmer J. Burkett will be chosen. The question of county option was brought before the state conventions of both parties. Although opposed by moFt leaders of what is known as the "regular" faction "f the party, It was adopted by the majority of the Re publican delegates. On the other hand, in spite of the vigorous rapport of Mr. Bryan, the Democratic conven tion declared against it. The ocntest for the Democratic, in dorsement for United States Mtiator has been most vigorous between Gil bert M. Hitchcock, present congress man from the second (Omaha) district and owner of the principal Democratic Tiewspaepr of the state, and Richard L. ...t'-aliV, editor of Mr. Bryan's paper. Willis Reed ia also a candidate. For the Republican senatorial indorse ment there are five candidates. For the gubernatorial nomination, the Democrats have two candidates, both strenuous campaigners, with strong following—the present gover nor. Ashton C. Shallenberger, and James C. Dahlman,- the "cowboy mayor" of Omaha. Unalterable opposition to county op tion is Dahlrmm's slogan, while Shal lenberger takes a more conciliatory position, agreeing to sign such a bill if passed by the legislature. There are three Republican candidates for this honor, but their campaign had been made more on personal grounds. Congressmen John B, Hatta, Demo crat, and George 'Non-is, 'Insurgent" Republican, have no opposition in their own parties. Congressman Moses F. Kinkaid,' Republican, has a fight on Imd for the nomination. Con gressman Hitchcock and Hinshaw are seeking renomlnation.
