LINCOLN , Nov. 19. ( Special. ) The re volt and disintegration of the "allied forces of reform" which was predicted early in the year fa rapidly approaching and the demo crats are completing plans to take the rem nants of the show In under one canvas. I I Th flrtt move In this direction wos-to gain ' I control of the popocratlc newspaper * and ' ( luring the whole of this year the so-called I I , "reform press" has teen subsldlted by the , national democratic committee IB order that the right kind of political matter might be presented to the country reader * . The lead ers of the movement have now decided that It la Urn * to work In the open and finish up the remnant of the populist party with out delay. A meeting was held In tbl * city last Bight , participated in by th * demo cratic leaders of this state and by a repr- entative sent her * by Governor Ston * of Mliiourl , and arrangements were made to f th r in th * "reform prcsi. " A company wa * organized. It Is Mid with a capital tock of $200,000 , to take care of the polit ical patent ildee of the newspapers of this tate , and It I * further Intimated that the cheme 1 * to toe so far-reaching as to In clude the regulation of the "reform" news- ppers of Missouri and Kansas. The busi ness is to b * done from a democratic stand point and on a line with the policy of the national committee of that party , being virtual notice to the populists that fusion Is out of fashion. To make sure that there should 'be ' no hitches In the program no populists were admitted to the meeting ere < o membership in the now company. Will Boom Stone ( or 1000. While Jim Dahlman and other local lead- are are active In the schema , It la certain that most of the capital Is to tie furnished by Governor Stone and by prominent demo crats in the cant , the ultimate purpose being to keep the country newspapers in line and gradually boom Governor Stone for the presidency In 1900. Just where Bryan comes in in the deal cannot be ascertained and U % is ald that hi * presence in the city has no connection with the matter. It cannot be learned whether the "reform press" butlnes * now presided over by War wick Sauuders U to b * absorbed by the new company , or that it IB to be squeezed out of business. Saunders has a strong leaning toward straight democracy and It is known that for 4he last three months he ha * been anxious to sell out , so It Is quite probable that satisfactory terms will be reached for the deliverance of the Saun ders business to the democratic company. In order that the protest from the popu list * of this state may be made 03 feeble as possible , the purchase of the state organ of the populists hero at Lincoln U contem plated , and onr of the Missouri emissaries ni teen figuring on the plant for the last fw days , representing to the local popu list * of the Burrows-Sheldon stripe that he Is an "Iowa grcenbacker , " The few populist leaders who are not ' willing parties to the new scheme are mak ing a vigorous protest. They say that the failure of the fusion forces in this state due to the pass-grabbing and other corrupt practices of the men who are now holding office * and that uch mistakes can be avoided In the future. But In tb new turn of affair * they M only two paths to fol- low : One leading Into the republican party , and the other down the "middle of the road" to final oblivion. The main body of popocratlc performers Is already headed toward the democratic circus tent. Congratulate * Republican * . K. R. Slzer , chairman of the republican committee for the First district , has seni out a congratulatory letter to the repub lican workers of the district , calling atten tion to some of the good results of the cam paign. In the letter he says : A close examination of the returns from the First district of Nebraska Is very grat ifying to every republican who In my man ner assisted In the good work and demon strates once more what organlzaiini and united effort will accomplish in politics. The total republican and fusion vote in the First district In 1896 on gfiv rnjr wes 34,539. Holcomb's ( fuslrn ) , ilunll'y over MacColl ( republican ) , 793. The total re publican nnd fusion vote In 1S)7 ! ) on sup-cnio Judge was 30,824. Sullivan's ( fusion ) plural ity over Post ( republican ) . 20S.

In 1SOG Judge Strode ( republican ) wns elected over Broady ( fusion ) to congress by 219 plurality. This year E. J. Burkctt ( rc- publican ) was elected to congress over Man- ahan ( fusion ) by a plurality of 2,504 ami carried every county In the First district , j Republicans elected every state senator In ' the First district , a gain of four seuatr > is over 1SP6 , and elected sixteen members of , the house , a gain of six mcmbeis over 1896 , making a republican representation of twen ty-two this year as against twplvo In 1 S6. In the whole district we lost but three rep resentatives , one each In the following coun ties : Nemaha , Richardson and Otoe. due to local conditions , by majorities ranging under 400. 400.Some Some changes in the officering of the Third regiment have Just been announced by the governor.

In becoming chaplain of the regiment Lieutenant Underwood has not received a promotion so far as pay Is concerned , as the two places arc In the same grade. Captain J. J. Lamborn , who organized the company in Red Willow county , has been home from the south on sick leave for som * time , but started back for the regiment to day. Lincoln Local Notei.
