extended them a most hearty wel
come and trusted that their visit In
I'lattsmouth might prove a pleasant
one to the delegates and a harmoni
ous meeting of the grand lodge to
day. At this time the curtain was raised
and the South Omaha degree team
were ready for the first, or adoption
degree, with the candidate In the
person of Hoy Flanagan, of Union,
In readiness and eager'to learn tho
mysteries of true Hed MenHhlp. The
South Omaha team have been In
I'lattsmouth before, In fact they were
active and their team put on the
work at the time the I'lattsmouth
tribe was organized. Last night they
were even better than ever, and the
work was certainly handled In a very
creditable manner.
At the close of the adoption de
gree Pnst Great Incohonee ltlrd, of
the Great Council of the United
States, was Introduced, and he deliv
ered a brief but very Impressive talk
on the work of the order, tho object
of Its organization and the valuable
service It was rendering throughout
the land, as well as the great work
In Htore for It In the future. Mr.
Plrd Is Indeed a line orator, and the
only regret expressed by the many
brothers was that ho did not say
more, lie Is a power In the order,
and tho meeting was greatly honored
by his attendance. In his remarks
he was very complimentary toward
the class, as being ono of the largest
ho had ever had tho pleasure of ad
dressing. The stage was now In readiness
for the second degree, and the Auro
ra tvam were prenent In all their
glory to perforin tho work, with Ed.
Leach, of Union, as tho candidate.
The Warriors' degreo Is a very Im
pressive one, and tho Aurora team
were up to the overage In the hand
ling of the work. Immediately fol
lowing the Warriors came tho Chief's
degree, put on by tho Omaha Tribe
No. .2, and Loulo Lelner of I'latts
mouth, was tho candidate. This gave
tho class tho whole work by three of
tho best working teams In tho state
of Nebraska, and each ono handled
their portion In line style.
This morning at 10:30 the Grand
Council was In session and was ad

remarks this morning were commen

as In criticism of it. He made an
extended talk on the good of the
order, and dwelt on the orphans'

remedy of merit In my cose. I often
had pains In my hips, so severe that
I could hardly work end there was
also a lameness across my loins. I
had reason to believe that these trou

highly spoken of, I made up my mind
to try them. I procured a box at

brought me prompt and effective re

A special from Lincoln under date
of .October, says that in making an
appeal to the voters of the First dis
trict ueiore tne primaries Will Hay
ward gave out the Impression that he
never held an appointive ornro.
Today he stated that ho meant to
ninke plain the statement that he had
never held an appointive office "lu
lie stated that he was appointed
prlvato secretary to his father, the
late M. L. Hayward, about the middle
of March, the year of Hayward's elec
tion to the senate, and that when he
received a warrant for his services it
covered the period up to the follow
ing fifth of December. Hayward said
that he has worked as private secre
tary In Nebraska City only, never
having gone to Washington. He as
serted that his father made only a
short visit to Washington Immediate
ly after his election, and that on his
return, or shortly after, he "vaa taken

ington when congress next convened.
Hayward states that he refused to go
to Washington while his father was
111, and that a consultation was held
regarding the advisability of sending
someone to Washington to look after
the Hayward interests, the expecta
tion being,that M. L. Hayward would
recover from the stroke of apoplexy
that eventually ended in his death.
Hayward acknowledges his appoint
ment and says that when he got the
warrant he cashed it and kept the
money. This statement from Hay
ward is chiefly of interest because of
the Impression that many people got
from his first statement that he in
tended to say he never held an ap
pointive position. The warrant was
for about $1,000.
