Prohibition Vice Presidential
Candidate Accepts Honor.
Declares Saloon Question Is Leading
Issue In American Politics and Pro
hibition Party Is Greatest of All
Parties Admits Forlorn Hope.
Defoi e n large audience In Drown au
ditorium of the Ohio Noithum univer
sity at Ada, Thursday night.
Professor Aaron . Wutklns was offi
cially notified of his nomination as
the candidate for vice president by
the national Prohibition party. The
citizens crowded the streets and uni
versity cnmpuH. Political partisanship
temporarily wns laid aside In the hon
oring of an esteemed townsman.
Felix McWhirter of Indianapolis,
treasurer of the national Prohibition
organization, was the chnlrman. He
spoke at considerable length and then
introduced National Chairman Charles
H. Jones of Chicago. Mr. Jones made
only brief remarks and then Hon. Hob.
ert Pntton of Springfield, 111., who was
temporary chairman of the national
Prohibition convention, delivered the
formal notification address.
When Professor Watltlns arose to
respond, the vast audience was on Its
feet, cheering and waving hats and
AARON S. WATKINS.
handkerchiefs, while little girls pre
sented the candidate with huge bou
quets of flowers. The ovation lasted
several minutes. In his Hpeech ac
cepting the nomination, .Mr. Watklns
declared that the liquor question Is
the greatest question in American pol
itics and that the Prohibition party is
the greatest party, because it has an
issue nation-wide in Its scope. He
concluded as follows:
"I confidently expect that many
who are now before me will live to
see the saloon an outlaw In all the
states .of the American union. It may
not be that Mr. Chafln will be elected
president of the United States this
year. It may be that I will never
preside over the senate, but some day
a Prohibitionist will be occupying
each of those positions, and the gov
ernment of the United States will
then cease to thwart the wishes of Its
citizens as expressed by the various
state governments. Toward this end
we ask the co-operation, the sympathy,
good wishes, and votes of all who de
sire a clean government, in which
righteousness shall be enthroned and
the sin which is a reproach to auy
people shall be ovet thrown. Again, I
thank you and the party you repre
sent for the high honor you have con
ferred upon me, which will give me
the privilege of presenting this, the
best and most necessary gospel that
I could preach, from ocean to ocean,
and In almost all the states of the
American nntlon, and when the record
of the grat temperance- reformation
Is written by the Impartial historian
of the future, the convention which
nominated Mr. Chufln and myself will
take Its place along with the Virginia
convention, and the continental con
gress as a landmark of American prog
ress and of world-wide reform."
Professor Watklns read a telegram
of encouragement from the Piohlhltlon
standard hearer, Eugene Chafln. which
again brought the audience to Us feet.

TRADE REVIEW tOR THE WEEK.
Fall Jobbing and Retail Demand
Hslped by Cooler Weather.
Bratlstreot's says: Fall jobbing
trade and retail demand have been
helped this week by the advent ol
cooler wenthor, tho opening of the
scmson of (nil foetlvltles and tho con
tinuance of tho buyers' excursions.
Hum t the consensus of reports Is
that distribution has expanded at
leading northwestern anl southwest
ern markets, while there Is a furthei
gain shown at many southern points.
Enlorgemcnt of ciop movements, par
tlculatly m wlntor wheat and cotton,
has also mado for a further Improve
ment in collections. Uut the weight
of testimony Is that the trade is still
below the tome period of last year,
when contraction was alieady In evi
dence Conservatism, In fact, still
governs buying operations and there
is h disposition to order merely for
Immediate or nearby necessities pend
ing a clearer view of the political out
look and the reaping of the later au
Industrial reports show on the
whole an expansion In output. Iron
and tteel production Is from GO to 80
per cent of full capacity, and the set
tlement of the Alabama coal miners'
and the New England paper makers'
strikes has made Tor a larger output
There Is a further gain In the output
of lumber, especially at tho south and
In the Pacific northwest. The build
ing trade Is expanding at western
cities, but tho preliminary August re
port shows a larger decrease from u
yenr ago than wns shown In July or
June owing largely to heavy de
creases at New York city. The shoo
trade report Is better, but tho out
put Is below last year.
Failures for the week number 210.
Wheat exports for the week aggre
gate 5,396,02G bushels. Corn exports
for the week are 40,051 bushels.

Abblo C. Rice, the lattor of whom

principal witnesses and considerable
testimony of a somewhat sensational
character Is expected. It has been
learned that In addition to the many
checks which were paid at the Flist
National bank, without funds to covet
them, Dr. Rustln had issued a num
ber of checks on outside banks, so
curing the money on them at Omahn
banks and later finding they were
valueless. These checks to the

nccordlng to Mrs. Rice's statement
these checks were what bothered him
most, because they were not good.
Tho Insurance companies who carried
policies on his life have not taken n
hand, but aiu expected to do so soou,
unless tho Inquest should develop
