Ihalleaeraer' Campaign Manager Had to Give Way to 0-elll Stales atsa Too Saddealr to Get Over It Raally. (From a Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN. Msy 19. - (8pecial.) - Chris Gruenther has Just declined the portion of secretary to the State Hanking board. The place was offered to him. so It is reported on the most reliable authority, by oOvernor Shallenberger. The Job rays M. a year, but Mr. Gruenther has steadfastly refused any political Jobs at the hands of the man he elected. This leaves the governor In the clear now to appoint some gwd competent republican to fill the place, as he ha done his duty und offered It to a member of his own party. The action of the governor In offering to Oruenther the best place at his disposal la an Indication that the executive would like to have the Platte county man on his staff during the next campaign. Jhe appointment of Arthur Mullen as state oil Inspector and ex-offlcio governor was a hard dig at Gruenther, who had managed the governor's campaign while Mullen was helping Tom Allen mail out copies of the Prince of Peace In the interest of Mr. Bryan. Inasmuch as Gruenther had taken upon himself, at the request of the governor, the entire management of his campaign It was naturally supposed the places to. be filled by the executive would be distributed among the persons whom Gruenther called to his assistance. Mullen got the first Job and another par son who was quoted as being for Governor Sheldon got one of the next best. Of course these things did not fit In with the order of business which Gruenther had been led to expect would be carried out and so far as anyone has noticed Gruen ther has not been around the governor's off'ce since his Inauguration. While it la very probable Gruenther could1 not qualify for the plae. sunder the law, even if he had any desire to take it, the governor has taken advantage of his op portunity to turn his good side to his late manager. Incidentally the offer of the place to Gruenther may have been the cause of Arthur Mullen's attack of the "pinkeyes." Two Defendants Cleared. Holding that no proof of a conspiracy had been made. Judge T. C. Munger in the federal court this morning directed a ver dict for W. E. Jakway and Leon Baker, two of the men sued by Harold W. Forrest for $26,000 because of alleged false imprison ment on the charge of embesiling money from tho Nebraska Hardware company. This left City Detective James Mnlone as the sole defendant In the suit and the trial was continued with h'.m on the stand. Thompson Supports Mains. Deputy Food Commissioner 8. U.
