that these things were carefully held
back during all these jears, discredits
them and also the par tie who brought
them out in this campaign. We are
pleated to give our readers the follow
ing defence of Mr. Hitchcock from the
democratic state central committee:
gestlon of legitimate business trans
acted with actual money. From the
facts and revelations recently made
it deems, however, that Mr Hartley's
cunning, though great, was not suffi
cient to rover his tracks, so that in
thi present Instance he furnishes evi
dence of the truth of the stniemem
made by Ralph Waldo Emerson that
"The devil Is always an ass "
Mr Hartley, It now appears, realized
tK t Ms own disgrace could be turned
iiito 1 n asEct for the purpose of black
jrul iiig those with whom he had
mc cy transactions nny time after be
ccr ng state treasurer. He therefore
had the papTS. letters and telegrams
of the men with whom he had money
dii im photographed, thus enabling
hni to make settlements with such as
hi ec.jld and nt the same time, after
t rnlng over to them the original pa
j . rs. retain copies that he could use
for blackmailing purposes against any
wl'o at any future time should become
candidates for public office.

Fu:a r.ll that has bet-n r:vc:i to t'u thus far, the are tj

the KUi7?of ?U,000 of Joseph S. Baitlcy.

aj rears that during the next few'

depression, which were especially had
jearH In Nebraska, which was btricken
with a drought. Mr. Hitchcock found
himself hard pressed tor cash to con
tinue the publication of the World
Herald, which was not self sustaining
at that time, imd was forced to aBk,
in common with all other business
men in those disastrous years, to
have the time of payment on loans of
money made by him extended. The
loan made of Bartley was extended
liv having the original note cut up into
irrt'.'er ones, falling due on differ

Is the hand or Secretary Balllnger
seeking to smite Congressman Hitch
cock in hiB senatorial aspirations? It
will be remembered that it was Con
gressman Hitchcock who introduced
tne resolutions In congress tinder
which the Ballinger Investigation was
conducted which resulted in the ex
posure of many frauds being perpe
trated in the disposition of Alaskan
roal lands Ex-Governor Savajre of
KcbrarKa, who paidoned Joe Bart'oy
ficm the state penitentiary, is said to
b an intimate friend and business as
Foclate ot Secretary Ballinger in fie
stnto of WroMneton. Bartley owe: his
libeity to v Governor Savage, and
Ballinger s a mortal enemy of Con
prtssni?n H.tchcock. Senator BrVctt
it inmlllar with all the facts and Is
making the battle of his life to stcure
re oler t!rn to tho senate, with n rec
crd that he dare not face by nipet ng
hi? lival on the rostrum Jn Jo'nt nc
bate before the voters of Nebraska
The foregoing facts may account Tor
the lRits made by certain politicians
in Nebraska to Bartley at Denver,
which resulted in Bartley taking a
hand In the fight to punish Hitchcock
rp.i fspist T'iirk't Doesn't It lock sun
Licious, to say the very least?
Ccngressmnn Hitchcock is the au
thor of the Ballinger Investigation.
He introduced the resolution. In con
gress undor which the investigation
was conducted.
If Senator Burkett Is not afraid that
his record in congress will condemn
him, why does he duck and dodge, and
refuse to meet his rival for the sen
ate in Joint debate before the voters
of the state?
