You Can't Eat
Your Cake and Have It, Too
Neither can you spend your hundred
cents and have a dollar, too. It isn't
sensible to let every dollar get away
from you, If you spend every dollar
of your income some one else puts the
money in the bank. It is far better
to do your own banking. You can't
get rich by spending money, but you
can have a growing bank account by
depositing regularly, each week or
month, as the case may le, some part
of your income in

Every nerve is a live wire

DENIES THE STATEMENT
iT. J. Doyle, the Democratic Candidate for
Congress, Denies Endorsing Pollard's
EVERYBODY KMDWS HE NEVER SAID II
I Mr. Dojia Sijj ths Steal Was Wrong
and lbs United States Supreme
Court Says So.
A report has been in circulation in
some parts of the First district that
Hon. T. J. Doyle, democratic candi
date for congress, had endorsed Pol
lard's action in taking 11000 from the
United States treasury that did not
belong to "Eisy Money." Several
papers had gone so far as to eulogize
Mr. Doyle for the statement. The
editor of the Nebraska City News
noticing the statement in these papers,
wrote to that gentleman regarding the
statement, and the following is Mr.
Lincoln, Neb., Sept. 24, IWt.-U. M
Hubner, Nebraska City, Neb., My
Dear Sir: I am in receipt of jour fa
vor of September 22, enclosing clip
ping from tho Johnson News of the
date of September 21.
I cote the editor of this paper in
discussing Mr. Pollard's action in tak
Ing $1900 salary for the period prevl
ous to his election, states: "Mr.
Doyle says that Mr. Pollard did noth
ing but what any other man would
have done under the circumstances."
I never made such a statement
never stated anything that could be
construed into such a tholight. The
convention from which 1 received my
nomination denounced this action of
Mr. Pollard In language clear and un
equivocal. As an honest man 1 could
not have accepted the nomination
were I not in accord with the spirit
of the resolution.
; The United States statute which
fixes the matter of salary is clear and
unambiguous, and will not admit of
an interpretation which would sanc
tion tho taking of this money.
A committee In the interest of Mr.
Pollard submitted this question to
two among the ablest republicans at
torneys in this district and received
from the attorneys an opinion that
Mr. Pollard's action in accepting this
money was clearly wrong. The U.
S. Supreme court has decided the
same question In the same way, it is
This editor Is unwittingly doing me
a gross Injustice. He attempts to
place my seal of approval upon Mr.
Pollard's act In accepting this money
and in so doing, brands me with du
So far as my campaign Is concerned
I am attempting to place it on a high
plane. The people of this district
know the facts with reference to this
money. It is a matter which must
be decided by the enlightened con
science of the people ot the district.
I deem It unnecessary to attempt to
mould opinion upon the subject. I
should thus leave the matter through
out the campaign bad not this news
paper attempted to place me In the
light of approving a thing that I
deem morally wrong and also legally
wrong. i oey leave im mierence
from this statement that I would
have done as Mr. Pollard did, had I
been placed in his place. This does
me an Injustice.
In charltv I must believe that the
editor of the Johnson News was mis-
led and misinformed by some partisan
and has unwittingly thrust upon me
this injustice. I trust that the same
paper will make a retraction la the
interest of fair dealiug.
All parties are demanding from
their candidates a high moral stand
This they have a right to do. Action
speaks louder than words. People
will not have much confidence in a
public servant who preaches the doc
trine of high morality and engages in
auy practice which does not accord
with the preaching. We much teach
by example as well as by precept. I
do not want to be placed upon record
oerore the people or this district as
approving an act of a public otllcer
which is disapproved as being wrong
by a majority of the voters In his own
party, by the decision of our own su
preme court, and by the best legal
minds in the country.
Ithank;ou for calling my atten
tion to this matter. With regards, 1
