THE GREAT OTOE
On.- of the Mof Successful Banquets
That We Eer Attended, and the
Otoe County Democrats Are

From Saturday's Dal?y.
O'.e of the big jtolitical gatherings
: the eaon was the banquet held by
the .i-m-K-rats of Otoe county at Ne-

;t which almost every loader of the
t t y irathered to enjoy the splendid

presiding office with his clever in

Wi'-c welcomed vy Senator John
M;.tte in a pleasing speech.
The main address of the evening
v. made by Senator William V. AI-
'?: of Madison, who took as his sub
j (. "Preparedress," and a most elo-
u.-r.t address was given, which filled
the i.jditors with enthusiasm for the

One of the pleasing talks of the
(Vf.ir.? was that of our friend. Wil

SVr.;it.r Hitchcock, and we are glad
of the opportunity cf reproducing this

the other end of the capitol with an
investigation in his honor.
The first part of this period saw re
peated attempts by Senator Hitchcock
and others to secure thee nactment of
an income tax law, but it was not un
til the second half, vnder democratic
rule, that their efforts became suc
cessful. Postal savings banks, advocated by
Senator Hitchcock from the beginning
of his public service, are now an ac
In the first part of this period, with
the greatest difficulty and only after a
sensational speech in the house, Sen
ator Hitchcock forced from the Can
rionized committee on rules his resolu
tion to investigate the Ballinger land
frauds in Alaska, which investigation
took from the Guggenheim interests
the key to that great public treasure
house. In the second part, under the
democrats, that storehouse is being
opened to the people of the United
States, to whom it belongs.
During the republican regime he
helped secure an appropriation for
a government powder plant, which has
reduced the cost of Uncle Sam's
powder by nearly half, and under the
democrats this move will be extended
to the government manufacture of
ether munitions of war and the con
sequent busting of the war trust.
The period which I refer to began
with a monetary panic which was the
natural fruit of a patched-up currency
system, which the republicans knew
was wrong, but did not have the
courage to change. In the democratic
days those things came to pass that
the republicans had failed to attend
to, and panics have gone out of
Senator Hitchcock secured the in
sertion in the currency bill of a pro
vision that the six-months agricultural
paper of the western farmer shall be
accepted as federal reserve security
on a par with the I. O. U. of the east
ern business man. The prospect is
that the law will soon be improved by
the adoption of two other provisions
fought for by him and demanded by
subsequent experience, namely, the
guaranty of national bank deposits to
protect the depositor and keep mem
ber banks from leaving the system,
and such reduction of the number of
federal reserve banks that each will
be big enough to pay its own expenses
and be a going concern.
The republican administration be
queathed to the democrats the Mexi
can problem which, after many days,
is abotu to reach its final solution,
The republican administration,
through the boasted "taking of the t
Isthmus" by the Terrible Teddy, and
similar flourishes of the big stick, be
queathed to the democrats a precari
cus friendship with our Latin-American
neighbors, but through the Colom
bian and Nicaraguan treaties and a
neighborly exchange of common
counsel, concerning the recognition of
the de facto government in Mexico
and other Pan-American problems,
that republican bequest of hatred and
suspicion is being transformed into
mutual respect and confidence by the
administration of Woodrow Wilson.
Another republican bequest was a
state of unpreparedness such that, in
spite of the large military appropria
tions that were continued over many
years, when we go to chase a bunch
of bandits there are but six or eight

regiments left at their regular posts.
One of the first measures initiated by
the democratic house of representa
tives was the preparedness meas
ure of 1912 which provided for an
army reserve by making the term of
enlistment seven years, with the last
three years spent in the reserve. Then
when the senate also bcame demo
cratic, one of the first enactments of
the present administration was the
preparedness measure which provides
for the prompt mobilization and trans
fer into the federal service of the
militia of the several states in time of
actual or threatened war. In these
two small steps the democrats did
more in the first three years of their
majority than the republicans had
done in twenty years to correct the
state of unpreparedness which they
The republican party also bequeth
ed to us the Philippine problem, but
under the leadership of Senator
Hitchcock, as chairman of the Philip
pine committee, the administration's
Philippine bill has passed the senate
and one of our greatest war clouds
in passing from our horizon.
I could go on with this enumeration
of democratic achievements, but time
does not perrait. I will simply close
with the observation that the repub
lican finger is shaken with the ague
as it tries to point to a single instance
wherein the democratic party has fail
ed to measure up nobly to the con
fidence placed in it by the voters of
FRED REZNER TRANSFERRED
FROM ALLIANCE TO OMAHA
From Friday's Dally.
Fred Rezner, who for a number of
vears was employed by the Burling
ton in the shops in this city, has just
received another recognition of his
ability by the company by being sent
from Alilance, where he was foreman
of the car repair work, to Omaha,
where he will have charge of the work
in Gibson, South Omaha and Omaha
for the Burlington. Mr. Rezner was
sent from the shops here, where he
was acting sub-foreman, to Edgmont,
South Dakota, where he spent four
years in charge of the car repair de
partment. Two years ago he was
sent to Alliance by the company and
has since been there until his trans
fer to Omaha. Mr. Rezner is one of
the reliable men in the employ of the
Burlington and it is pleasing to his
old friends here to learn of this well
deserved recognition of his services
and they are hopeful thai he may be
able to advance even higher on the
ladder in rank in his chosen field of
Teddy Clifford Out.
From Saturday's Dally.
After an illness covering several
weeks, T. S. Clifford is able to be out
of the house for a short time each
day and is gradually gaining back his
.strength, which was undermined by
his illness of the past few weeks. Mr.
Clifford was suffering from an infect
ed arm and also from a very severe
case of the grippe and for several
weeks was in a most critical condition.
His friends are mighty well pleased
to see him able to beu p and around.

3 OUR PATENTED NEW STROUGHTON ROLLER FEED! CZ
The endless apron is driven by the simplest and most efficient driver ever invented.
The apron is driven direct from the hind axle by two rollers which revolve en six indited plans on the
hind axle. A simpler or better feed cannot be imagined.
The apron drive wheel is geared down twice as much as on other makes. This makes the feed abso
lutely uniform and positive. The feed is not only positive, but takes so little pitwerthatvou c&nhardlv tell
from the horses when the apron is running. This also absolutely prevents from sliding when going up hill.
The s;iuie lever which first throws the beater intooperation engages one notch after the otter as it de
scends: the apron moves so slowly at the first notch as to give only a thin top dressing. When the lever
engages the lowest notch, five times as much is spread as in the first notch. There are live changes of feed.
The simplicity and beauty of this positive ratchet feed is so apparent that no further explanation or com
ment is necessary.
The Double Row J. I. CASE STALK CUTTER, large wheel, dust proof caps,
dust proof bearings, with hard oilers, on all main cutting cylinder bearings.
Pressure Springs in front of axle, so there is no neckweight, main axle clear

FETITIGfi CIRCULATED FOR
JOHN A. DAVIES OF BUTTE
FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL
From Saturday's Dally.
Yesterday afternoon a petition was
being circulated in this city among
the republican voters in behalf of John
A. Davies of Butte, Nebraska, who is
being urged for the republican nom
ination for attorney general on that
ticket. Mr. Davies is a former resi
dent of this county, where he was
quite prominent in republican politics,
and his friends here were rather sur
prised to learn that he was seeking
this office from the voters. It will be
mighty hard sledding, however, for
anyone to beat Hon. Willis Reed out
of a re-election to the office he has
filled so well in the past two years, as
there is a general sentiment all over
the state for his re-election.
