In assisting financially in the or
ganization of the Ewing creamery
and in acting without pay as the
manager of that institution for a year
or more, W. F. Philley, republcian
candidate for state senator for this
district, has enabled the farmers and
dairymen of the southeast section of
Holt county to receive from four to
five cents more per pound for butter
fat than do producers elsewhere in the
county. This is of more real benefit
to the farmers than is the frequent
fertilization of the air by his demo
cratic opponent.
A good example of the campaign of
falsehood being conducted by the local
democratic organ is its malicious at
tack on the Chambers Sun for not
publishing the communication from
the joint chairman of the democratic
and so-called progressive parties ad
mitting the charges of M. F. Har
rington to the effect that the so-call
ed progressive party in reality is a

publish the article, on its first page,
and it reached a much larger number
of readers through the Sun than it did
through the local democratic sheet.
That sly old fox, M. F. Harrington,
has been at it again; and as a result
there is loud wailing and gnashing of
teeth among the local (democratic
leaders. Several week ago Mr. Har
rington made a few remarks through
the medium of the public press, in
which he took pains to explain why
LaFollette was running on an inde
pendent ticket instead of the so-called
progressive one. He characterized the
so-called progressive party in Ne
braska as being conducted by a bunch
of political fakirs as a sort of side
show to the democratic party. The
biting utterances of Mr. Harringon so
aroused the ire of the chairman of the
local democratic county central com
mittee that he took the bait, hook,
line, sinker and all, and rushed to the
defense of the so-called progressives
over his own signature; thus proving
the contention of Mr. Harrington. The
local democratic leaders are much
chagrined that their chairman by fall
ing into the trap, so convincingly veri
fied the assertion of the LaFollette
An audience which filled the K. C.
hall to overflowing this evening listen
ed to two masterly addresses on the
political situation, delivered by United
States Senator George W. Norris and
Adam McMullen, republican candidate
for governor. Delegations of citizens
from every town and most of the pre
cincts of the county were noticeable
among the large attendance and the
large number of women voters in the
gathering was particularly pleasing
to the candidates. The meeting at
O’Neill concluded a day of strenuous
campaigning by Mr. McMullen, who
following his address at Springview
Wednesday afternoon opened the day
at Ainsworth, speaking at Long Pine,
Bassett, Newport .and Atkinson en
roi'.te to O’Neill. He was greeted by
goodly and attentive audiences at all
of these points and the frequent ap
plause which punctured his remarks
at each point indicated an affirmative
reception of his remarks and candi
dacy. Senator Norris, who delivered
an address at Valentine Wednesday
evening, came to O’Neill Thursday
morning, to rest up from a several
days speaking campaign in prepara
tion for the night meeting. Mr. Mc
Mullen was the first speaker and dis
cussing state finances and highway
development pointed out that it was the
state legislature that provided for the
levying of taxes and which made ap
propriations. He complimented the
last legislature for its reduction of
expenditures and its cutting down of
the extravagant budget proposed by
Governor Bryan almost a half million
dollars. He was well received and
after the meeting many voters crowd
ed around .to assure him of their ap
proval and support of his campaign.
Senator George W. Norris was never
better than in his address of more
than an hour and a half duration, fol
lowing Mr. McMullen. He held his
audience spellbound with his magic ora
tory and demands for the recognition
of the agricultural west. A price for
his products which would insure him
a profit on his toil and investment,

sary exactions of the middlemen be

Heatrola Has Brought The Joy Of
Furnace Comfort.
Step for a moment upon a “magic
carpet” and take a flying trip across
the country. From the white cottages
of Cape Cod, over the modern sub
urbs of lake cities, down through the
farmes of the Middle West and the
plantations and towns of Dixie, over
scattered homes in the mountains to
the bungalows on the Coast!
A 10,000-mile trip in a few seconds!
And not once during the entire journey
were you out of a “Heatrola neigh
In every state there are Heatrola
homes—brick, frame and stone; homes
large and small, with and without
basements, in cities and on farms;
thousands of homes that have aban
doned the bother of stoves for the
comfort and economy of this modern
heating system.
Even heat for the whole house.
Nor is this wonderful record of
Heatrola installations surprising
when you realize all Heatrola does.
For this unusual heater, set up in the
living room or wherever there is a
chimney connection, supplies heat to
the whole house, upstairs and down—
heat that is even and dependable no
matter how low the, thermometer
Works just like a furnace.
The Estate Heatrola, instead of
radiating heat over a small area as a
stove does, circulates heat just like a
furnace. Great volumes of air—16,
000 cubic feet every hour—are drawn
into and through the heater and cir
culated throughout all the rooms.
Comers distant and near are warmed
to the same comfortable temperature.
And the heat is not dry and irri
tating to the throat, but softly moist
and pleasant. Ask any doctor—he will
tell you this is the most healthful
heating method known.
A thing of beauty, too.
Besides, in installing Heatrola, you
are adding an attractive piece of fur
niture. As one woman said, “it cer
tainly beautifies the home.” The rich
grained mahogany, vitreous enamel
finish, smooth as glass and everlast
ing, give Heatrola the appearance of
a fine cabinet and makes it just as
easy to keep clean. A dust-cloth is all
that’s needed—no polishing or shining.
As for fuel, Heatrola bums any
kind of coal—also wood—using no
more than an ordinary stove, despite
the tremendous area heated. You
will discover a sure shrinkage in fuel
Go to the Heatrola dealer in your
city and see this heater yourself—or
ask us to direct you to a Heartrola
owner in your neighborhood.

How State Taxes Were Cut by
Republican Legislatures
Challenging Comparison
For the present fiscal year, federal tax receipts will show a sav
ing to the people of $6,000,000 a day as compared with 1921.
This shatters all records for tax reduction and was accomplished
under the Harding-Coolidge administration.
For the fiscal year ending June 30, 1921, governmental expendi
tures were $5,538,000,000 and the surplus, $86,000,000. For the past
fiscal year, expenditures were reduced to $3,497,000,000 and the sur
j plus was built up to $600,000,000.
The reduction in the public debt means an annual saving in
j interest of more than $120,000,000. *
When the republican administration took over the governmental
reins, demobilization and liquidation remained to be completed. Hugei
accounts with railroads were unsettled. Approximately 5,000,000 men
I were out of employment. The administration fell heir to short-time
obligations amounting to more than $7,000,000,000. These have all
been refunded or paid.
Charles G. Dawes, as first director of the budget, assisted ma
terially in restoring economy in national affairs.
Nebraska was one of the first to cut the heart out of high state
taxes. A republican legislature in 1922, at one stroke, reduced them
33 per cent.
In dollars and cents this reduced the total tax charged to the
several counties from $10,930,607.11 in 1921 to $7,340,953.10. This,
too, was a record-shattering accomplishment.
A republican legislature was returned again in 1923 to further
reduce governmental costs. It lowered the $7,340,953.10 of 1922 .to
$6,404,457 for 1923, a reduction of 12 per cent. This was made possible
largely because of the completion of the fund for soldier relief. And
for 1924, the republican legislature provided for a further reduction in
state taxes of 10 per cent.
If the voters select with care, the men who are to represent them
in the state legislature next winter, governmental economy will be
One economical move proposed by the republican party is a tax
on gasoline used in motor vihicles, the proceeds to be used exclusively
for the building and maintenance of roads. This system has been
adopted by more than three-fourths of the states and the people of
those states are satisfied. It means that the thousands of tourists
who cross Nebraska shall help pay for the roads they use. It means
less money to be raised by general taxation for road purposes. It will
not apply to gasoline used in connection with activities on the farm.
The republican plan contemplates a lowering of present excessive
license fees upon ordinary motor cars as a result of the gasoline tax.
