THE GREAT OTOE COUNTY BANQUET THURSDAY NIGHT On.- of the Mof Successful Banquets That We Eer Attended, and the Otoe County Democrats Are to He Congratulated. 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- . :.-ka City on Thursday evening, and ;t which almost every loader of the t t y irathered to enjoy the splendid e-:.t a::d the strong, forceful speeches r-.ade i y the liiffeerr.t orators cf the . t-..r,g. The F.ev. W. W. Lames of . . Mary's Episcopal church presided i:-- : ..a-tmaster, an ! was a most pleas presiding office with his clever in ' rliKTir;- cf the speakers. The vis-;?.- 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 ) tlaz and the principals which Wo d:ov Wil: on is carrying out. Si: addresses were also given by K-hh Neville of North Platte. C. W. r.ryan of Lincoln and W. F. Stoecker f Omaha, candidates for the nomina tor, for governor, as well as Mayor I'ah'.rr.ar. of Omaha and W. B. Ban ? . i r cr of Union, candiadte for lieuten ::r : governor. One of the pleasing talks of the (Vf.ir.? was that of our friend. Wil .! I. Eaken. private secretary of SVr.;it.r Hitchcock, and we are glad of the opportunity cf reproducing this :.!i:tss filled with so many interest i:.T facts. The address of Mr. Eaken v.;i- as follows: M.. Young warned mc thr.t if I ame down here I would 1d expected t- represent Senator Hitehock in a f. ve-rr.ir.utes peech He said that he i i .-w I couldn't fill vhe bill, but that you would let me fill the time. I realize the presumption of my speaking to a gathering of democratic war horses who were veterans in the tat: e before I had cut ipy eye-teeth, 1 u my strength is not in myself, but i.i him whose ;-boe I am to rattle . round in. 1 Ititve had the good fortune of be ing associated with Senator Hitchcock :u: ir.g e ight years of the most active p-ri-d of progresshe congressional k-irislation that this country has l:?iov.-r.. so while I have not lived long, I have lived intensely in the sphere of politics. Tnis period has seen two revisions rf the tariff one up. one down. The l ri. the republican levision, was an cx parte proceeding, thep rotected in te rests being represented by abie and corpulent counsel, while the ultimate cor.-umcr was not even served with a summons. The second, the demo tratic downward revision, was accom plished with entire freedom from the vr.due influence of the insidious lobby ist, while he was being entertained at -r4 yc"J!!' jar?

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 complished fact. 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 fashion. 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, without war. 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 Pay the RIGHT Green River Cedar Brook Old Taylor Greenbrier Yellowstone Sunny Brook Bond & Lillard . . .

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 now admit. 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 this country. 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 labor. 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.

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.

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. When to Take Chamberlain's Tablets.

Home testimony is real proof. Public statements of Plattsmouth people carry real weight. What a friend or neighbor says compels respect. The word of one rhose home is far away invites your doubts. Here's a Plattsmovth man's state ment. And it's for Flattsmouth people's benefit. Such evidence is convincing. That's the kind of proof that backs Doan's Kidney Pills. Theo. Starkjohn, retired farmer. Locust and Ninth streets, Platts mouth, says: "For several years Doan's Kidney Pills have been used in our family for bacl:ache and kidney troubel and they have always proved to be all that is claimed of them. Whenever my back lels a little lame and my kidneys are not acting as they should, I take Doan's Kidney Pills a few days and they never fail to do roe good.
