Charley Noyes, the Republican can

With scores of years of English op
pression of the Emerald Isle fresh In
memory, It was not to be expected
that Irishmen would approve Colonel
Roosevelt's Guild Hall speech In
which he advised England to adopt
a policy of similar cruelty toward
Egypt. President Matthew Cummings
of the Ancient Order of Hibernians,
in a Rpeech at the convention of the
order at Portland, Ore., the other
day denounced the Guild Hall utter
ances of the Sage of Sagamore Hill
as "unwise, unpopular, unpatriotic
and un-American." To which senti
ment many thousands who are not
Hibernians, but share the love of
Justice and freedom that is the herit
age of every son and daughter of the
Emerald Isle, will say "Amen!"
An injunction has been handed
down by the district court of Lan
caster forbidding Secretary of State
Junk In from certifying as candidates
to county clerks the names of those
who have filed as the candidates of
more than one political party. The
object Is to prevent the Democratic
candidates from also having the Teo-
plo's Independent party label after
their names, and vice versa. The
hearli'g Is set for July 27. Secretary
of State Junkln held at the begin
ning that the payment of one filing
fee as sufficient, and In this he was
upheld by an opinion written by At
torney General Thompson. Gilbert
M. Hitchcock paid tho $50 fee when
ho filed as a Democrat, and later ten
deled a fee of $50 when he filed as
the People's Independent candidate
The latter fee was returned to him
by Secretary Juuklu with a letter
stating that the payment of one fee
was sufficient. It Is a commentary
on Secretary Junkln's rank partisan
ship to know that he has changed
his opinion and now holds that it
requires two fees, and that since the
date for filing is past those who fail
ed to tender two fees are now estop
ped from standing as candidates of
tho two parties. It Is a chilly day
when Mr. Junkln does not go the lim
it in exhibiting his rank partisanship,
even at the expense of the best in
terests of the Btate.
lu a recent speech at Winfield,
Kas., Senator Rristow, one of the
Kansas Insurgents, made serious
charges against Senator Aldrlch, the
standpat Bcnato leader, the charges
being substantially as follows:
That under the Dlugley law, there
was a 30 per cent duty on manufac
tures of rubber, and crude rubber was
free; that the present tariff law pass
ed the house on either crude or man
ufactured rubber; that Mr. Aldrlch's
senate committee increased the duty
on manufactured rubber from 30 to
3. per cent; that during the session
or Immediately after adjournment,
he, in connection with the Guggen
helms and Ryan, organized a rubber
trust known ns tho Inter-Continental
Rubber company, with $40,000,000
capital Block; that Mr. Aldrlch's son
became vice president and general
manager of the company; that Im
mediately there were largo advances
In the price of rubber, and that dur
ing the first three months of the ex
istence of this trust it paid dividends
aggregating 18li Ver cent on the
preferred stock.
Senator Aldrlch was shown a copy
of Senator Prlstow's speech by a New
York newspaper and asked for a
statement in his defense. Senator
Aldrlch refused to make any com
ment on tho charges.
. Rut a "dignified ludlffercnce" is
not going to do. Unfortunately for
the honor of Senator Aldrlch, the
Drlstow charges Bcem to be substan
tlally borno out by the facts. There
ran be no denial of the Increase in

The Kansas statesman calls the
manipulation of the rubber schedule
' a legislative crime," and the words
are none too strong. Though the of
fense may not be legally indictable,
there is certainly moral turpitude in
the manipulation of legislation by a
United States Benator lor ins own
personal profit. We cannot Bee that
cial Interests.
However, congress cannot afford to
rest qulesclent under the charge of
one of Its own members that United
States senators manipulated the tar
iff bill for their own personal profit.
Senator Aldrlch's sense of honor may
be ro calloused by long and faithful
service to the special Interests that
he is content to let the charge re
main unanswered, but unless the ma
Jorlty of senate members are tarred
with the same "personal profit" stick
they must, in Justice to themselves,
demand an investigation of the Brls-
tow charges.
The fight is now on. and you must
be for or against county option.
There will be no side-stepping on
this question, now, notwithstanding
the Cass county Republican conven-
tlon tried the side-stepping act
Don't lose sight of the nefarious

Ilurkett would like for you to do. He
Is hoping that the county option
question will draw the attention of
the voters away from the tariff Issue.

Uurkett was over in his old home
county of Mills, Iowa, soliciting as-
slstance from some of his old friends
In his life or death struggle for re-

after, because the tariff barons will

They owe him more than "a debt of
gratitude" for going back on the peo-
ple of Nebraska.

a member of the committee on reso-

Jackson, Mich., July 6, 1854. In com

bo given to the new party. Mr.
Knight suggested the name Republl

committee and then reported to the

Letter From Father M. S. Shine
in Regard to First Mass in
State of Nebraska.
The following letter appears In to-
(iay.8 state Journal which ls probably
of Interest to many In this city and
vicinity and for that reason is re-
.,,.! T.' Ir, ..,.11
known In tho state as a historian
of much aWmy flnd tfce loUer can b(j
depended upon as stating facts. The
letter follows:
Plattsmouth, Neb., July 23, 1910.
To the Editor of the State Journal:
In Mrs. O. J. Martin's interesting let
tpr In Sunday's Journal slip states
that fjm magg ,n Lln(i()n wag
celebrated some time after Novem-
ber 16, 1869.
The mass she refers to may have
been the first mass In the new addi
tion made by Father Hofmayer, O. S.
B to the original church that was
built by Father Emmanuel Hartlg,
O. S. D., in 1868.
The "first mass" celebrated In Lin-
oln was by Father Emmanuel Hartlg,
In 1867, at the house of John Daly,
situated southwest of the present
Mls80uri Pacific and Northwestern de
pot, at Ninth and S streets.
Father Emmanuel, as he was gen
eral'y called- received the three lots
donated by the state, and began the
erection of a frame church, placing it
under tne supervision of a "building
committee' of two, James Moran of
Salt creek, or Havelock, and Thomas
Malloy- of L,nroln' who a,so acte"i 83
treasurer. When the church was fin-
Ished, there was a lawsuit on account
of the contractor not paying the car-
penters and others.
During the trial, one of the oppos-
'nK counsel unsuccessfully tried to de-
stroy a receipt for a large amount of
money already paid on the contract,
by attempting to light his cigar with
jt. ne was caught in the act and was
reprimanded by the court. Lawyer
I'hllpott was the counsel for the
church committee.
.. , . . . ,
Father Emmanuel came to Lincoln
once a nionth from vebraska City.
and later he sent his assistants, Rev
Pirmlne Koumley, O. S. B., (from Au-
Kust- 1868 t0 February, 1869.) and
I -v vail T t n T
nev. ancnaei iiormayr, u. o. i.,

h 869.)
Robert McDivitt of Havelock was
niarrled In the first church by Father
Pirmlne Koumley, on December 20,
1868, and he has related that on that
brought into the church to serve as
the first resident priest of Lincoln,
and one of his first works was to
build a thirty foot addition to the
original church.

Making P.eef With Alfalfa Meal.
The Otto Weiss Alfalfa Stock Food
company of Wichita conducted an In
teresting experiment in beef produc
tion by means of alfalfa meal last
winter. One hundred head of cattle
were selected and fed on alfalfa meal
In connection with corn. When mar
keted, they were said to be the best
and fattest steers that were ever put
upon the Wichita market. They sold
for $8.10 per 100 pounds. The details
of this experiment were given In
these columns at the time it was be
gun but the important fact that these
steers were fed wholly ou bleached
alfalfa was not mentioned. Accord
ing to the owners, the experiment has
demonstrated to them that bleached
nlfalfa contains as much of nutritive
value and is Just as palatable for live
Ftock as Is green alfalfa. This is only
true, however, when the bleaching
has been done by the alfalfa heating
from its own moisture. If alfalfa
s'jould be bleached from heavy dews
or rains, after it has been cut, it un
doubtedly loses in feeding value. It
has long been known that brown al
fal'.a was eaten as greedily by live
stock as that which is green, but this
experiment seems to show conclu
sively that where alfalfa has gone
through a bleaching process from Its
own heat, either in the hay mow or in
the stack, it has lost nothing of its
feeding value. Those who saw these
cattle were unanimous in their praise
ns to their quality and condition, and
it is stated that but for the high price
of alfalfa hay which existed at the
time of the experiment, a very hand
some profit would have been realized
on these steers. Kansas alfalfa Is be
ing shipped to eastern states and to
foreign countries In large quantities
for use in balancing rations for dairy
cows. As it is more economical and
more satisfactory to handle, these
shipments are always made in the
form of alfalfa meal instead of bulk
or baled hay. Kansas Farmer.

Work on Appraising.
The work of appraising the Bur
lington railroad by the engineering
corps of the State Railway commis
sion, is going steadily forward, a
number of the members of the corps
being in the city today on thl3 matter.
Among those on the work Is Engln
er Durber who came down this morn
ing from Lincoln. This work Is un
dertaken to ascertain the physical
valuation of the railroads of the state
and Is quite an important task. The
actual value of the railroads together
with franchise values will be taken
as a basis for the establishment of
freight rates which are to based upon
a legitimate return of the capital in
vested in the roads. The task is a
gigantic one and will take the engin
eering corps many weeks to complete.
All railroads In the state borders are
being appraised and each system or
individual road will be gone over
carefully and the amount of money in
vested in It accurately determined.
Considerable speculation exists in
railroad circles as to what the final
figures will Bhow for the roads and
It Is said they will be much higher
than commonly supposed by those in
terested in such matters.
