The Henlman-aallaghcr machine Is work- Ins o\ertlmo and as the contest approaches preaches , uvery meann that a corrupt police adm nlsttatloil can bring to bear In be'ciR upwl to carry today's democratic pri maries In the Interests of the combine tlial necks to perpetuate Itself In power In ppllo of the efforts of the machine plotters to dls- trnrt the attr-ntlon of the rank and ( lie from tbu real Issue , It It practically a Ilirdman ami antl-Hcnlman flKht. The machine l fighting for Its life against a pary sentiment that haii been gathering since the last siw- flon ofthu , legislature and which now threat ens tT ( oxirwhelm the entire crew that has lCcn manipulating the democratic organiza tion during the lust few months. Two weeks ago the machine men wcro confident of an easy victory , bill now the desperation with which they are spending money and swinging every club In their reach Indicates that they realize that the clttiatlon la liazardoim.

I'UKJOKItS AUK IN LINH. Since the tremendous sentiment against the machine him showed Its strength , Ileul- innn and Ills pluggcrg have endeavored to turn the tide by giving out the statement that It Is ix Gallaghei fight They are trying to take Herdman In out of the wet ab an Issue and IIPJ Gallagher for a scapegoat In the hope that his personal popularity will carry them through Hut so far this has had no better effect than the other schemes invented by the combine to befog the oppo sition. The democrats who have united to o\erthrow the present rotten party organl- yation fully understand tliat Gallagher Is a nonentity BO far as this light Is concerned , except as he Is using hl > Influence to help Hndiran out In exchange for bis appoint ment n chief of police A glance o\er the lists of delegates filed by the Herdman crowd Indicates that rvery ple-bltcr who IMS been helped to a Job by the old legislative combine hn.s been dilllcd Into line to suppoit the forlorn hope Down In the Klrat ward William Neve , who worked nt the state house by the grace of the combine Is on the delegation with the expectation that ho will swing the Danish vote Into line In the Second , Liu I * PlattI , who also had a remunerative position at Lincoln , aclde from his connection with the Infamous Gambling bill , u plugging for the machine nnd In the Fourth Lawrence Kay la also signifying his appreciation of favors received by becoming a working member of the Herd- man delegation. The Third ward delegation , which Is nn- contested , Is said to bo against the machine. The Fourth ward ticket Is mixed , but the majority of the delegates are for Herdman. The uncontested delegations In the Fifth nnd Sixth wards ate antl-IIerdmun , with one or two po.-oible exceptions.

To the Editor of The Dee : Plcoso glvo space to this letter : To the Democratic Voters An article ap pears In the World-Herald of today's IESUO charging that because of an opposition ticket to ring rule bMng placed In the field , to bo voted on at the primaries tomorrow , that the parties behind the movement are In league with E. Roscwater to coerce the dem ocratic party. This statement Is untrue In every par ticular We arc not asking for anything that democrats have not a. perfect right to ask for , and hecaunc we seek to take the control of the democratic party out of the hands of party wreckers , now In control , wo must be charged bj a paper of changeable' politics with trying to wreck the pally In the Interests of republicanism. We are not urging the professional poli ticians to place a ticket In the field , and If they do , they are the onea to ho held re sponsible for the wreck If one occurs , be cause of the fact that they assert that a fight IH being madeon Chief-elect Gallagher. This. too. Is a falsehood , and published for the solo purpose of aiding the ring now In control of the party. We have not now , nor did wo ever have any fight whatever on Mr Gallagher , but It Is n well known fact that he was not and Is not now the choice of the World-Herald or thu balance of the ring combination , and would never have been appointed , or even considered , were It not for the fight made by the undersigned for and In the Interest of Martin White.

The Houlinan-Gallagher machine had things all Its own way yettcrday at what It pleased to term a hearing before Edwaid Howell , chairman of the so-cilled demo cratic committee. Members of the gang came to the realiratlon that thcli eati e was lost unices they could thiovv out some of the regular delegations trom certain waids. Charley Fanning and George Seay were called In by the manipulators of the machine and both of thisc men Hied their allldavlts that mcny of the names to the petition , placing the anti-Hcrdman delega tion before the votcis of the Seventh ward at the primaries to be held today , were forged. Thle was excuse enough and IIow- ell at once decided that the names should not go upon the tickets The democrats of the Seventh ward are Ind'gnant ' over the arbltiary ruling of Howell - ell and have no hesitancy In saying that If thev can and will defeat the machine at the primaries. Last night the machine managers and their cohorts vvero engaged In a frantic hustle to patch up the holes In their lines and get their forcte together. Money was freely used In the various ways Known to the gang. Ilerdman was especially bticjy In hit ) efforts to save himself in the Second \\aid.

GRAIN GOING TO THE GULF Western rarmsrs Lik'ly to find a Now Market. FARM PRODUCTS SEEK SOUTHERN OUTLET Itnllrniul Mm of HIP Opinion Hint .Mov oinriil | n IurnIy HUP to tlic I Talk of n Itulip lu Ever elnco the announcement that the lines cast of Chicago would on September C advance the freight rates on corn from 15 to 20 cents per 100 pounds on nil shipment , , from Chicago to the Atlantic seaboard there has been more or leas excitement among western grain men , nnd there ba been something of a fear that lines west of Chicago cage would make a raise to agreew.th that of the eastern limes. So far as can 'learned In local freight circles there Ls no Immediate danger of such a happening. Inquiry among freight men of the Unloi Pacific , the Missouri Pacific , the Burlington and the Northwestern s > stcms brought out n general condcn-natlon of the po Icy being pursued by the IIr.cs east of Chicago cage and also the fact that none of them anticipated , according to their statements any rnl e In grain rates among western lines this fall. The fact that none ot tin southern linen have yet made ray Increase In their rates on grain shipments and the further fact that nothing foreshadowing any such Increase has yet appeared on the sur face. Is taken as Indication that much ol the western grain will pock a southern out let and bo exported from gulf porls. HEAVY SHIPMENTS SOUTH. Speaking of this matter , Assistant Gen cral Freight Agent Wood of the Union Pacific said : "I have heard no talk of a raise In grain ratts among either western or bouthcrn lines to correspond with th" ' Increase by eastern lines on September C. There are already large quantities of gralr moving southward and there Is apt to be more. Nearly nil the wheat off our lints In Kansas Is going eolith. There are also good southern shipments ot other grains , but there Is more- wheat than anything elw ! going to the gulf ports. " Assistant General Freight and Passenger Agent Phllllppl of the Missouri Pacific bald ' Yes , there has been quite a little talk caused by the raise In grain rates announced by the eastern lines I suppose they must have all the traPlc thej want to handle , otherwlno their action , It pcems to me , would bo almost suicidal. There Is no doubt about It , grain Is going southward. There Is no talk of a ralso In rates by the southern lines , and If none Is made , the eastern lines will find the great shipments of wcbtern grain going southward instead of eafatward through Chicago. We are hauling a great deal of gialn toward the south now , and this. ' quantity will bo Increabcd when the Increase In rates on eastern lines becomes effective " nOADS INCREASE CORN RATE. The new rates that will go Into effect or September G will mean a slight Increase for the roads between the Mississippi rl\er and Chicago , as all rates are based from the east bank of the Mississippi river. The Increase to the Omaha-Chicago lines will be slight , but It will be appreciable. The In crease will bo for the haul from the cas' ' bank of the Mississippi river to Chicago The following telegram , received by the Omaha ofllco of one of the four Omaha Chicago lines from the general freight agent jestcrday explains this part of the proposition as follows"Effective on Sep tember G the special rate on corn for export from the Mississippi river and Chicago will bo cancelled , and the rate thereafter will be from the east bank of the Mississippi rl\er polnta to New York , 23 cents , which wll make our proportionate rate on lake and rail 4 cents per 100 pounds Instead of 2 9-10 cents , as at present. " As will bo seen , the new order revoking the special rate that Is now In effect will mean an Increase of 1 1-10 cents per IOC pounds to all Omaha-Chicago lines. s.vi/r I.AKI : I'fiHHCiiKt'r Arranuomuiitu li > AVi'xIcrn ItoailH DlncUNHril.
