DEMOCRATS AN DSLUSH FUND Doings of tho Unterrif jed Leaderf in - ' NebTaskrikit'iFitih WHERE DID THE BIG MONEY GO f Andrerr Mnrrlsney'a Chnrge I JVot I.lkelj- to He Inquired Into li" thc. llntiae for Mnny Itrnsons. 1 (From a Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN, Feb. 23.-(Speclal,) The charge of Andrew Morrlssey, socrotary to Governor Morohead, that tho chairman of tho democratic state committee hod double-crossed the democratic stato can didates und his subsequent statement that ho was not speaking for (he administra tion when ho made the remark, following a conference of Governor Morehead and Charllo Bryan and following a visit to Mr. Morrlssey by W. II. Thompson, state chairman, has revived the talk of Investi gating I ho democratic state committee and 11m relations to the corrupt practices act. Tho democratic houso Is Investigating all republican officials und Institutions and nearly all the Investigating resolu tions begin "whereas, there are certain rumors," but It is almost a dead moral certainty that tho houso will appoint no committee to look Into the workings of the democratic state committee during the last campaign and force the dispensers of tho fund bent Into the state to te.II where it went. Tho statements regarding this matter have reached long past the "rumor" stage nnd witnesses ran easily bo secured who will tell that from J40.000 to 150,000 was sent Into the stato by the national democratlo committee and used to buy up votes or to Influence voters In favor of Governor Wilson. Where Did 11 Got 'Some mighty good democrats ate mix loiifl to know who got this ' euonnoun sum of money. One, mighty god demo crat, "said $5,000 was turned over toho Hhallenberkcr campaign and from that was turned over to the Bryan wing of tho party. The same mighty good demo crat, who fs not a member of the legis lature, but who fants to see an in vestigation, sayx $5,000 whs turned over to Tom Allen to bo placed where it would do the most rood." Tho statement of Andrew Morrlssey, who was a candidate for attorney gen eral, would Indicate that in his opinion the money was used to further the In terests of all the democratic siato ticket, and In this belief the results of the elec tion certainly bear him out. The democratic house, however, l so iruch Interested In Inveatlgatlng re publican office holders and particularly tho railway rommislon, that It Is deuf to the demands for an investigation of any democratic public men, eo It Is a sufn gamble that should a resolution be Introduced In the house to look Into the alleged misuse of fundo In tho lato cam paign by tho democrats, It would not get to first base. . Of course, the republicans of the sen ate could adopt such a resolution, and appoint such a committee, but as the new houso contains many well trained detec tives, the Investigation should be started In the lower branch of the legislature. MorrlMsry'N Contrlli V.lon. Incidentally, when Andrew Morrlssey came across with his statement about W. H. Thompson not spending money fo. the help of the candidates on the stato ticket, there came baok the answer straight and hot from one In a position to know. It whs this: "Morrlssey should huve no kick com ing. He did not contribute 1 cent to the campaign fund," WOULD WSHINA6T0N LIRE US Albert W. Biggs Delivers Address on Father of Country.

Mr, Biggs declared that Washington would declare that tho evils which, now afflict us have been largely brought upon us by ourselves nnd not by our system. Rare nt Kleiillnn. "Washington would not bo content with thn solectlon of unfit officials to do thn will of the people, and clamor for thn ngnt to recall them," he said. "1 rather think that Washington would exercise thn sumo care nnd caution whun It came to select any official, of whatever rank, thnt ho exercised when ho undertook to choose his cabinet, and that personal fitness, high character und known attainments would ho requisites he would demand be foro elevating them to position nf tmt and powor. He would do this ruther than take the machine nominee of soino po litical party nnd vote the ticket fur the sake of regularity. "Indeed, he cautioned against partisan spirit and factional organizations by which, as ho said, the small bin artful and enterprising minority would bo able to secure and wield the power of govern ment.," Ulggs said that Washington's heart, If he lived today, would go out to tho poor of shop and mill and view with appre hension the growth of federal powor. lie would be concerned, ho sold, with tho government of cities and how grkft has linked together crime and power.

Tho speaker said Washington had cau tioned against the encroachment of one branch of the government upun another, and If he were here today would have much to say and do about tho legislative brunch "absorbing greater powers to al low a temporary majority of thn pcoplo to throw off constitutional limitations," And he concluded, "What would Wash ington say about the recall of Judge?
