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

This morning Mrs. S. E. Olive of
Los Angeles. -Calif., who has been
here for the past few days visiting
at the home of Mrs. J. C. Cummins
and family, departed for Omaha, from
where she will go to points in Iowa,
as well as at Cedar Creek, where she
expects to visit relatives and friends
for a few weeks before returning to
her home on the coast. Mrs. Olive
was formerly Mrs. Captain J. W. Mar
shall, and was for many years a resi
dent of this city, where Mr. Marshall
was postmaster from lSt"7 to 1884
The family removed from this city
some thirty years ago for the Pacific
coast, where Mr. Marshall passed
awav several years ago. Mrs. Olive
is interested in a large manufactur
ing concern on the and has de
voted the most of the past few years
in traveling over the country, but this
is the first time in years that she has
had the pleasure of visiting at the
old home in Nebraska. The old
friends here greatly enjoyed the short
visit from Mrs. Olive and were de
lighted to see that she was enjoying
the life on the coast.

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

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

The Famed Dr. Anna Shaw Spoke to
a Full House, Most of Whom
Were Women of the Citv.
From Friday's Daily.
The meeting last evening at the
Parmele theatre, held in the interest
of the movement in favor of woman
suffrage, was attended by a large
crowd, most of whom v ere ladies who
were there to hear the message of
Dr. Anna H. Shaw, national president
of the Woman Suffrage association,
who has come from New York to as
sist the women in their campaign in
the western states. The meeting was
presided over by Attorney W. A. Rob
ertson, who in a few brief remarks
introduced Francis A. 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. Dr. Shaw and par
ty departed this morning for Omaha,
where thev will take part in other
meetings in the suffrage interests.

held by no other attraction and only
goes to show the popularity of this

he famous "Alma" waltz, the strains
of which run all the way through the

popularity, as it is a waltz which when
once heard can never be forgotten.

This morning the stork made r.
most happy visit at the home of Mr
and Mrs. Clyde H. Fuller, bringing
with him a fine nine and one-half
pound son. The advant of the little
stranger was the source of much hap
piness to the proud paients, and they

Several Had the Pleasure of Viewing
the Inside of the New Jail
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
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,
