A Panic Howler Called
One -big city banker lias been called

the calamity cry that desperate rcpub
licau campaign managers have resorted
to during the past few weeks. Presi
dent George E. Roberts of the Com
mercial National Bank of Chicago,
recently expressed the opinion that
Bryau'-s election would be harmful to
business interests. Air. Roberts has
received a flaying at .the hands of J. iP.
O'Malley, president of People's Sav
ings Baak of Iowa, for his stand in this
matter. In a letter to officers of the
Commercial National ilUtnk, Mr. O'Mal
"I .notice by theiuublic press that
your .president, Mr. Roberts, witk
-some other business .men, have beea
.giving .out interviews un regard to the

entertain a high opinion of Mr. Rob

dontof.our state, and further I do ndt
.want to .interfere with auy man's right
of free -speech and concede to every

between Mr. Bryan and Mr. Taft. But
I do -seriously object to this 'Paniclraitiiug- funds by popularrtubscription'

W. J. Johnson, a prominent stock
man of Wright precinct, and who has
been known as one of the rankest re
publicans in the county, .was in Alliance
Saturday. Mr. Johnson surprised his
republican friends by declaring that
himself and three sons would vote for
Bryan. He says a system that can
reduce the value of property one half
in the short time of three, months is
wrong and 'lie cannot conscientiously
vote for a party which as responsible
for such a ooudition. A leading re
publican of Alliance did his best to
persuade Mr. Johnson aaot to desert
the g.o.p. but his efforts were without

The high protective tariff fostered
by the republican party has finally
proven its downfall. In the past twelve
years the number of combinations and
rtrust8 that have multiplied, and to
which the people have had to pay
tribute, has brought about a reaction
ary sentiment in favor of casting off
the unjust burden. The managers of
the g.o.p. have become aware of this
fact, and today refute their former
actions by advising a "change in the
tariff." Under McKinley and Roose
velt more than two hundred trusts
were created to further scourge the
people. The laboring man, the mer
chant, in fact every consumer of man
ufactured goods on which there is a
duty, have been compelled to pay tub

Geo. M. Adams' Statement
Crawford, Nebr., Oct. 15, 1908,
To all Voters of the Fourteenth Sena
torial District of Nebraska:
Having been nominated by the Dem
ocratic and People's Independent Par
ties for the honorable position of State
Senator for the Fourteenth district of
Nebraska, and believing that the voters
of this district should know before
election where their candidate stands
upon the most important issues involv
ed in this campaign, I submit the fol
lowing for your consideration;
1. 1 am in favor of a law that will
guarantee bank deposits, for the ab
solute security of the people's money,
to prevent panics and promote prosper
ity, and available to national as well as
state banks of this state wishing to
take advantage of the same.
2. I am in favor of the election of;
precinct or township assessors by tho
direct vota of the people in the pro
cincts or townships in which they live.
3. 1 am against what I term the un
just action of the state board in arbi
trarily raising the valuation as returned
by the local and county assessors.
4. 1 believe in a state cxpoiimental
farm and that it should bo located in
the northwestern part of the state, as
mentioned in the Democratic platform.
5. 1 favqr a wide open primary elec
tion, where every voter will have an
opportunity of voting a secret ballot
and for whom he choscs.
C. From a national standpoint, I am
in favor of every plank in the Demo
cratic platfoun that was adopted by
the Democratic party at its last na
tional convention held in Denver, Col.,
in July, 1908.
Having served in the last legislature
aB tho representative from the Fifty
third district, which is accredited with
being the most progressive legislature
that has assembled in Nebraska for
the last fourteen years, I believe that I
am in a better position to know what
the people of my part of the state want
and expect from their member if elected
to the office. Respectfully,
G110. M. Adams.
