NO. fOc tb NEBRASKA'S GREAT EST GOVERNOR VIS ITS PLATTS10TH Notwithstanding the Threatening Weather, Governor Morehead Addresses a Larg Audience. Frnm Saturday's Tally. The visit of Governor John II. Morirhead to this city hist evening was the occasion for the outpouring of a large crowd of citizens of all parties at the Parmele theatre to greet Nebraska's chief executive, who in the discharge of his duties has well earned the title of the business gov ernor. The arty, including C. S. Al drich, L. F. Langhorn. chairman of the county committee, r.nd the county candidates, arrived in the city about 7 o'clock from an all day's trip out through the county, which started at Greenwood at V o'clock in the morn ing and continued all dry without in terruption, closing with the big meet ing here in the evening. The trip and the open-air speaking had a de cided effect upon the voice of the governor, who was horrse, and it was with difficulty that he made his ad dress at the theatre. There were a large number of the democrats of the city and county present at the Hotel Riley before the meeting to greet the governor, who was making his first visit here since a democratic congres sional convention helu here many years ago. The members cf the Burlington band gathered shortly before the hour for the -speaking and gave a number of selections in front of the theatre that were very pleasing, and also one number upon ihe stage where the governor and county candidates and the chairman of thr meeting. Col. M. A. Bates, were seated. Shortly after 8 o'clock Colonel Bates, in a few words, introduced Attorney C. II. Aldrich of Elmwood, who had accom panied the party on their tour, and this gentleman proceeded in a short address to point out the accomplish ments of the democratic party in the nation under the guidance of Presi dent Wood row Wilson ?nd the extens ive program of reforms that the ad nvnistratior. had been i'ble to carry out as well as many that were still to be enacted into laws. He made a short plea for re-election of Congress man Maguire to represent this dis trict in support of party measures. The governor was aptly introduced to the audience by the chairman as 'Nebraska's greatest chief execu tive." and he at once launched into his speech, which was largely a state ment of the condition of the state's finances during the time that he has been in the governor's chair, and some of the measures and appropriations made by the last legislature in their session. The governor pointed out the vast sum of money that entered into the mair.t -nance of the state uni versity and the noriml school and which covered a large per cent of the taxes levied upon the state, but for . which the legislature had made an j appropriation that was necessary to maintain. Governor Morehead, . in this section of his speech, did not hesi tate to state that he did not believe thai the removal of the university from its present location was a wise move, as the buildings in use were in good shape and the expense of mov ing was wholly unnecessary to the taxpayers of the state to gratify the desires of a few who were working for this purpose. In response to the statements of the management of the different state institutions the governor pointed out the fact that when his administration went into office they were confronted with the fact that the Aldrich admin istration had left a deficit in a great many cases that was necessary to make good; in addition to this the present administration had succeeded in cutting down the running expenses of the institutions and making a sav ing of $100,000 to the taxpayers of the state. This is true in almost every one of the public institutions, and each year that the board of con trol has been in power has seen the saving of thousands of dollars to the state and its people. The governor stated that he believed the affairs of the state should be run with as great a care as a man would give to his own personal business, and for this reason had made this the policy of his administering of the affairs of the state, and if re-elected to the office would continue the policy in force. The meeting was enthusiastic throughout and the remarks of the governor, in giving an accounting o his administration, was frequently in terrupted with applause in approva of the telling blows made against the weak charges of the republican state committee.

Olive of Los Angeles. -Calif., who has been here for the past few days visiting at the home of Mrs. J. C.

FRITZ FRIGKE RETURNED HOME FROM HIS VISIT IN THE WEST YESTERDAY From Friday's Daily. Fritz Fricke, who has been visiting in the locality of Cody, Wyo., for the past few weeks, returned home yes terday and reports having had one of the times of his life in the en joyment of the mountain atmosphere and in search of big game. The party, leaving Cody, struck out into the mountains in search of deer and oth er game and spent a few weeks there most enjoyably, although the game' was not very plentiful, as it has been in the previous yearr. Mr. Fricke states that the oil industry is devel oping this section oT Wyoming in great shape, as the oil fields are nu merous and very productive of the highest grade of oil, especially near Thermopolis, where they have one ot the finest wells in tb.2 country, pro ducing a very high grade of oil. The hunting trip was abandoned by the party, owing to the snows which were ouite heavy there, and the hunters returned to their homes. Mr. Fricke enjoyed the outing to the utmost and feels very much better over his vaca tion trip out into the fresh, brasing mountains. Victims of Accident. From Saturday's Daily. A few months ago George, the lit tle son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Gar rison, suffered an injury to the third finger of his right hand, but it did not appear to be of a serious nature. Recently it became much worse, and the physician concluded that amputa t'on was necessary in order to save the hand, and Saturday morning Mr. Garrison and Dr. Hustun took the boy to Plattsmouth, where the operation was performed by Dr. Huston and Dr. T. P. Livingston of Plattsmouth, the entire finger being removed. Ellis Daniel has been wearing a handsome pair of crutches the past few days on account cf a puncture of his right foot by stepping upon a nail. The accident occurred last week and caused him very little trouble at first, but a few days later he found it necessary to have it attended to by a physician. He is the same jo vial Mr. Daniel who "roasted" us a few years ago when we broke a leg playing ball, and he takes no offense when we "hand it back" to him and suggest that he get a stock of pencils and shoestrings and ell 'em on the street.

Brogan of Omaha, one of the workers in the suffrage cause, who gave a short out line of the suffrage movement and presented a number of arguments in opposition to the statements made by anti-suffrage speakers and pamphlets circulated throughout the state against the cause. Mr. Brogan is a pleasing speaker and presented his views in a very able manner. ine chief speaker of the evening, whom everyone desired to heir, was Dr. Shaw, and her remarks well justified the audience whether they were in favor of the suffrage movement or not, as she is a lady of keen intellest and her address covered thoroughly the grounds on which the women are striving for the ballot. The speaker pointed out the achievements of the reforms that were carried out by the women and showed the reasons for their asking for the euual right with the men in voting for the election of the officers that governed the state and country as well as the interests of the women in legislation that would tend to secure other reforms in the state and nation.

THE SPIRIT OF DIS CONTENT RAGED T Several Had the Pleasure of Viewing the Inside of the New Jail in Consequence of Much Spirits Saturday night seemed filled with the spirit of discontent and desire to war as well as to see how much dis turbance could be created on the main street. The first trouble oc curred early in the evening, when sev I eral parties became involved in a chewing match and desired to settle their wrongs by physical combat, but this got no farther than a verbal bat tle that was subsided when the police entered where the war was waging and quieted down the warriors. Later in the evening one of the men who had been engaged in the wordy bat tie got in wrong with the police and was escorted to the jail to repose there until his spirit of rebellion at the authorities had had time to quiet down. The man was warned several times before to behave himself and quiet down from his loud talk and at tempts to provoke a fight from some one, but this he did not do, and not taking the advice of the police to go to his home, he retired to some ouiet spot and proceeded to taken on some more noise developer with the result that when he came down Main street about 11 o'clock he was seized with a desire to speak publicly on the indig nity that had been offered him in re questing him to go to his home and proceeded to announce his contempt of the law and officers that attempted to interfere with his desire to cele brate. The man had only given a short oration when the night force of police swept down cn him and dragged him over to the frowning jail where he languished, resting up from his strenuous exertions of the vocal chords. Shortly after 11 o'clock the resi dents along lower Mam street were aroused by more loud talking and rather blue language, as a number of men came down the street and one of the number was evidently of a very excitable nature, as his loud de mands for protection rang for several blocks and the police coming to the scene decided that the protecting walls of the jail would best protect him from "the dangers that he knew not of" and took the gentleman over to the bastile. No sooner had he been lodged in jail that remorse overtook him and he decided that the danger to his person on the street was less to be feared than the confinement in the jail, and loudly demanded that he be released. This was declined by the officers unless an ordev was received from the police judge or a cash bond of $10 placed up for his appearance in court this morning. This was final ly arranged for after much difficulty, and the man allowed to go on his way. Lincoln Parties Secure License. From Friday's Dally. This morning County Judge Beeson was called upon to issue a marriage license to Mr. Henry Wade Swain, aged 44, and Mrs. Eliza J. Overton, aged 42, both of Lincoln. The bride is a former resident of Weeping Water, where the marriage will take place this evening at the home of a sister of the bride, but for sometime past she has been residing at Lincoln. The groom is an employe of the Lin coln street railway coirpany in the capital city, wher they will make their home. SATURDAY NOR THE DEATH RATE ON THE RAILWAYS OF THE COUNTRY "Safety First" Bureau of the Burlnf- ton Furnishes Some Icrllini Figures by Carelessness. From Friday's Dally. The following timely si.:ggot inns looking toward the preventing of ac cidents along railroad tracks and trains has been furnished by the "Safety First" bureau o the Builinr ton and contains some very startling figures as to the number injured each year along the lines of the railroads throughout the country as well as a few simple means of preventing or lessening the number el' accidents: If you are a mother or father, it is important that you know that 2, children in the United States have been killed, crippled and injured tint ing the last twenty years (enough t make a milepost for eery mile in a trip round the world! by playing around the tracks an! trains of rail roads. Every town and village has some child without an aim or leg, or has a little grave in the cemetery, of some child killed while hopping on cars. If you don't want to lose one of your children, or have them suffer the dreadful affliction of losing an arm or leg, you will keep your children away from the railroad tracks and trains. Grown up people also run a dnnirer from trespassing on the tracks of railroads as the following figures will show. During the lat twenty years in the United States, s;,733 trespass ers were killed; 1,GIG trespasser were injured; 181,371 total trespass ers killed and injured on the rail roads of this country. Divided as follows: 21,000 young people under 18 years of age, residing in the vi cinity of the accident, many of them under 10 years ef age; .'JC.27i' tramps and hoboes; 120,103 citizens of the ocality in which the accident occurred. mostly wage earners. More persons are killed while tres- passing inan are kireei in an outer ways together on the railroads. It would cost less to stoo this carnage by passing and enforcing laws against trespassing than it does to pirk up and bury the dead and care for the injured. Follow these few sample sugges tions and you can save yourself a fa tal or serious accident: 1. Never walk alon.T the track. 2. If you must cross the track, al ways rsiur. L.uui a: a i.imi... 3. Never steal a ride on a freight train in order to get home sooner, for if you do you may arrive home hut on a snutter. 4. Never crawl uwr a freight car or over the couplings. PLAY SAI I. AND WAIT. SUGGESTIONS OF NOTE FROM THE SECRETARY OF STATE TO THE VOTERS The office of Secretary of Slate Ad dison Wait in Lincoln has just .;. t out notices to the different couniy lerks in regard to the counting of the otes for the congressional amend ments that will appear on the ballet this fall. The straight party tickets will all be counted for 'he amendments that were endorsed by the state eon- entions of all the parties and in cludes the one providing for the revis ing of the methods of taxation as well as the one fixing the t-jim and salary of the governor of the tate. 1 he referendum questions of the Fort Kearney armory,, the employers' iability law and the equal suffrage amendment will have to be voted for in order to have the count made for them and in these cases all votes cn-t that are neither for or rgainst the e questions will be counted as ag:.in t them as they must have a majority of the votes cast in order to win. These facts will be a great aid to the judges and clerks of election in de termining the way to count the votes on the night of the election.
