NOT SEEK VOTES
President Indignant at Charge He is
Pro-British. Answers in Strong
Words. To Tell Why He
Seeks Another Term in
Long Branch, X. J., Sept. 29.
President Wilson made it plain tonight
that he wants no "disloyal" American
to vote for him. He expressed indig
nation over a telegram from Jeremah
A. O'Leary of New York, president of
the American Truth society, accusing
him of bring pro-British and saying
he had failed to obtain compliance
with American rights.
The president sent Mr. O'Leary a
short telegram which officials indi
cated Mr. Wilson had desired to put
in stronger language. His message
'Your telegram received. I would
feel deeply mortified to have you or
anybody like you vote for me. Since
you have access to many disloyal
Americans and I have not, I will ask
you to convey this message to them.'
31 r. O'Leary's telegram, given out
by the president, follows:
"Again we greet you with a popular
disapproval of your pro-British poli
cies. Last year from the Twenty-third
New York Congressional district and
r.ow from your own state and from
the voters of your party. Senator
Martine won because the voters of
New Jersey do not want any truckling
to the British empire nor do they
want dictatorship over congress.
"Your foreign policies, your fail
ure to secure compliance with all
American rights, your leniency with
the British empire, your approval of
war loans, the ammunition traffic, are
issues in this campaign."
The president's attitude toward tho
campaign and toward some of the is
sues before the country were made
known here today. It was learned
that in his speech at Shadow Lawn
tomorrow, and in subsequent address
es, he intends to state definitely why
he seeks another term.
Following is an authoritative sum
mary of his campaign attitude:
The president will adhere strictly
t his determination not to enter in
to personalities or into political con
troversy with Charles K. Hughes. All
the speeches he will make away from
Shadow Lawn will be delivered to non
pa! tisan organizations and will be de
voted entirely to a discussion of pub
lic questions. By inference they will
have a political effect.
His speeches here, however, will be
more political in tone. Tomorrow he
will tell why he thinks young men
should vote the democratic ticket.
American voters are entitled to
know, he believes, what republicans
would do in Mexico, what attitude
they would take toward belligerent
nations in Europe, whether they
would repeal the federal reserve act,
the tariff law, the rural credits acts,
the tariff commission bill, the eight
hour law and other legislative acts
of the democrats.
Although several days ago officials
here said the president would take
occasion to refer frequently to the
settlement of the recently threatened
railroad strike, it became known to
day that he has since decided not to
dwell on this question.
The president believes that satis
factory setlement of pending interna
tional questions can only be embar
rassed by partisan discussion of them
For- this reason, he is not expected
to reply directly to the challenge is.
su d by Mr. Hughes, that he deny or
confirm the charge that John Lind
went to Mexico with orders to oust
(eneral Huerta. On this subject Mr.
Wilson takes the position that Huerta
was ousted, that the democratic ad
ministration opposed him consistently
and that, therefore, no reply is neces
sary. In connection with international
questions, an authoritative denial was
made here today to statements that
James W. Gerard, American ambas
sador to Germany, is coming here to
discuss reports that Germany is about
to renew submarine attacks on mer
Yhant vessels. It was said here that
Mr. Gerard 'was returning to the
United States onlj: because he greatly
needed a rest.

THINKS LIVERY RIG STOLEN
THAT WAS HIRED FOR DAY
From Saturday's rarty.
A case of what seems to be horse
stealing has been unearthed in this
city and as a result, Q. K. Parmele,
the liveryman, is greatly worried over
what has become of his horse and
buggy. Yesterday a stranger came
to the barn and asked if he could se
cure a horse and buggy for a trip out
in the country and of course was ac
commodated by the proprietor of the
barn. As soon as he secured the out
fit the man drove to the Perkins
House, where his wife and children
were staying and loaded them in the
buggy, together with their baggage
and drove away, and this is the last
that has been seen of the rig or the
parties who secured it. Mr. Parmele
is hoping that perhaps the outfit will
be returned to the barn, but it looks
as though it was a case of a getaway
with the horse and buggy. The
sheriff is looking up the matter and
the nearby towns have been notified
to let him know if the outfit has been
seen "in any of these places.
MANY A SLIP BETWEEN
HONEY IN THE CHIMNEY
AND HONEY ON TABLE
From Saturday s Dally.
At the farm home of Anton Meis
inger, west of the city, on the place
owned by Frederick Guenter, M. S.
Briggs with the assistance of J. C.
York has been engaged the last week
in painting the house and barn, which
has added greatly to the appearance
of the farm home, both buildings now
looking like r.ev.
The other night after having gone
to bed, Mr. Briggs heard something
light on his pillow between himself
anil Mr. York, who were occupying
the same bed. Milo thought it was
a wasp and laid very still until a few
moments later when he heard a bump
against a window nearby and was at
liberty to turn over, which he was
very desirous of doing when he
thought he could not for fear of being
stung. Yesterday while painting the
saddle boards on the top of the house
Earl Meisinger told Mr. Briggs to
look in the chimney, which was un
used. and on doing so found it full
of honey up to within about three
inches of the top. When furnished
with a butcher knife, which he fas
tened to a long stick, and cutting the
sections of honey comb from the side,
of the chimney, harpooned one with
the intention of lifting it out, but
with the bees getting very friendly
and thick around the top of the chim
ney dragged the comb from the
butcher knife, harpoon, and down it
went lower in the chimney. Then Mr.
York got some shingles, and going
to the upper story of the house, thrust
it into the stove pipe hole to catch
the, honey while Mr. Briggs pushed
it down. The first batch to fall was
composed of bee bread and bees, and
this Mr. York removed with the shin
gle to empty it out of the window, in
order to catch the honey which he
knew was coming, and while doing so
the honey followed, going down to
the bottom of the long chimney,
where it could not be gotten.
Both the painters, with the family
of Mr. Meisinger, were making prep
aprations for a feast on the sweet
ness, but found that there is many
a slip between honey in a chimney
and honey on the dining room table.

voted to the study of music for a

regret greatly to lose this charming
frdy from their circle of friendship
but in her new home she takes with
her the best wishes of the host of
friends for hor future happiness thai
she so well deserves.

talented young man of the highest

WIFE," AT THE PAR
MELE THEATRE SOON
;ew plays, new plays, and more
new plays, has ever been the cry of
tne tneatneal producer. there are
enough plays submitted but plays with
real merit are few and far between
Like many firms Gaskell & MacYity
have a "safety first" motto, and have
adhered to the policy of producing
book dramatizations; taking as a basis
for judging the chances of a success
ful venture, a book that has had
very large sale, and with this point in
view, gone ahead and had the best
dramatizations made that could be
made. So they have always produced
book plays; this,, season,, howler,
among the avalanche of plays sub
mitted was "The Other Man's Wife,
its name was what causedit to first
receive a hearing. After reading the
play they were impressed to the ex
tent that they immediately made over
tures for the possession of the piece
It was the only play posessing that
absorbing interest and novelty of con
st ruction that they wanted. -Itesult,
they have given it all that could be
isKeu ior in tne way ot scenic m-
vesture, and as good a cast as it was
possible to get. The story of the
play deals with the world-old problem
of double-standard of morals. To be

CELEBRATE Iff I
ANT EVENT AT THE
HOLY ROSARY CHURCH
Yesterday was the twenty-fifth an
niversary of the dedication cf the
Church of Our Lady of the Holy Ros
ary in this city and in observance of"
that occasion the day was celebrated
in an appropriate manner by the mem
bers of the congregation. At the

high mass of the Catholic church was
celebrated by Rev. Father Bouska, the
first priest to perform mass ;n the

He was assisted in the mass by Rev

most impressive and attended by a
large congregation that filled the

Bohemian lodges and societies of this
city, as well as several from Oman?,
and South Omaha met at the K. S.
hall early in the morning tuv.l, headed
by a band composed of young men,
marched to the church to take part in
In the afternoon a band concert
was given at the K. S. hall, as well
as an exhibition by a number of the
Catholic turners and a very large
crowd was present to enjoy the oc
casion, that marked a quarter of a
century of life for this parish, and
every one enjoyed thoroughly the
event. This was one of the most ex
tensive demonstrations that has been
given here for some time and the at
tendance was quite large.
Mrs. YV. A. Swearingcn of 'Oman a
was a visitor in this city over Sun
day with her many friends, and was
accompanied to this city by her grand
daughter, and while here was a guest
at the T. M. Patterson home.
