CONGRESSMAN FROM FIRST DIS
TRICT SPEAKS AT PARMELE
ON ISSUES OF DAY.
From Thursday's Daily.
Last evening tin? Parmele theatre
was well filled by an audience of the
ii st il women voters of the city
and nearby territory to hear the ad
dress given jy Congressman C. F.
K- avi; of Kails City, tlie most notable
:epi: -lican speaker that has appeared
here during the campaign.
.Mr. Reavis has come from a thor
ough canvass of the district ami his
voice lias shown tlie effects of the
strenuous months of speaking thru
the west and the opening portions of
his address were delivered in a horse
and forced manner that gradually
improve i as the speech progressed.
Arriving in the city on the belntd
Missouri Pacific train. Mr. Reavii
and wife were dinner guests at tlie
home of Attorney V. A. Robertson
prior to the speaking. Mr. Iieavis
met at the Wagner hotel with a dele
ration of the local American Legion
po-t and received their appreciation
f the efforts he had made for the
compensation measure when before
th" house of representative:-. In this
contest Mr. Reavis was one of the
leaders for the support of the mea
sure. Th.- nieefius: at the P.irmelo thea
tre was presided over by Hon. 11. U.
Windham, an old time friend i f the
Keavis family ami who spoke of the
very delightful friendship of many
vear.s standing ami Mr. Windham al
so offered a prophecy as to the fact
that a 1'nited States senator
come two years hence from Falls
City in the persou of our congress
man, ivrioring apparently the bee
thnt is buzzing in tlie bonnet of the
"Code" governor at the present time.
Mr. Keavis in his addres.-j devoted
the greater portion to a discussion of
the purchases and sales of the various
branches of the national council of
defense v. hi'.-h had charge of purchas
fiig'arul securing "the supplies needed
in t lie war. Mr. Keavis told of tlie
organization of the council of na-t-ii.al
defense in the full of 1916
j immediately after the election and
i .'rota this took up a number of the
purchases made by some of the pur
chasing heads, attacking the men
who while engaged in the manufac
ture of various lines of goods them
selves were also as the agents of
the government able to purchase
enormous supplies from their own
lines for use in the war.
The purchase of leather was ore
of the chief features to fall under i
the fire of the congressman, shoving
from the reports of h's investigation
committee that enormous amounts of
material had been purchased of which
there w.;.; no possible use. Mr.
Keavis stated that the army possess
ed lOl.nno horses during the war
and fir these ! 15.000 sad lies had i
been purchased and among the items i
purchased by the leather department
of the council of iU fense had been
7o."i.ioii spur straps or thirty-six for
every officer in the service.
At the close of the war l.SOO.000
pounds of leather had been in the
storehouses of the government. Mr. j
Keavis dec lared.
The motor transportation pur-
chases were also denounced by the
speaker as wasteful and made with
out any apparent basis on the show-
ing m'ide i"5 at the close of the war
1 ."iii.ixiu motor vehicles were on hand
and allowed to rot in the various
c:miips of the 1'nited St;:t.s. not in
cluding oversea equipment that num
bered into the hundreds of millions
of dollars. The motor vehicles were
not disposed of Mr. Keavis charged
because the purchasing agent had
been one of the leaders in the auto
mobile industry of the country. And
y.t some 70.000 new cars were etit
to France after the armistice and
sold to the French people by the U.
government at about ten cents on
the dollar, counting the exchange
rate oti the French bon is which were
accepted in payment.
Mr. Keavis spoke briefly of the food
purchases -fating that while it was
necessary and right to make pur
chases for an army of 5.000. 000 men
for months in advance to insure ade
quate food supplies for the troops
abroad the methods of disposing of
these foodstuffs at the close of the
war had been very wrong and de-
prived the people of the I nited States
of an opportunity of securing them.
The disposal of the meat supplies
had been decided on by a meeting
held in the war department and at'

the I nited States.
Mr. Keavis' statement that he had
secured the passage of a bill t hrough
congress that prohibited the exporta -
tion of meat supplies owned by the
Fnited States and one disposing of
the motor vehicles on hand among
the states of the union for road work
and that through this latter bill Ne
braska has already received $3,030.
000 worth of motor transportation,
was vociferously applauded.
Mr. Keavis urged the appointment
of an attorney general who would
see that the parties making the war
purchases from their Own selfish
standpoint be sent to the penitentiary
where they belong. '
The speaker spoke shortly along
the lines of the League of Nations,
attacking the provisions of Article
lit as the chief objectionable feature
of the measure and urRine that it be
rejected. He pointed out the pro-
isions that in his opinion constitut
ed a guarantee of the necessity of
military action if the possessions of
any of the powers as signers of the
league were threatened and such
steps were in the opinion of Mr.
The speaker in closing paid a
tribute to the women of America for
their part in the development of t he-
character of their sons that
them to be the great factors in the
war they proved to be. and urging
the women to take action for the
defeat of the league.
Congressman Iieavis is one of the
ablest speakers in congress and his
presentation of his party's side of the
contention in the campaign was very
forceful and clear cut and while it
covered very thoroughly the ground
on which the republican anti-league
orators are campaigning, it failed to
reflect the views of the pro-Ieiguers
within the party.
Congressman Keavis in his address
failed to state anything relative to
the Ksch-Cuinrnins bill of which he
was a supporter and which is now
bid tig so bitterly opposed by the labor .
.iruiiizat ions of the country.
FIRE DOES CONSID
Residence Property Owned by Nelson
Jean on North Sixth and Occupied
bv Rube Erhart. Burned.
Fiorn Thursdays Ially.
Quite a serious fire occurred late
yesterday afternoon shortly after f
o'clock when neighbors residing near
the reidence property owned by Nel- t
sen Jean, on North Sixth street, dis
covered flames bursting from the
roof and which had gained consider
able headway. The property was
occupied by Kueben Krhart and fam
ily, and at the time of the fire the
members of the family were absent
from home. The alarm was given
and the neighbors at once started in
on the work of saving the buildin?
and the contends and the household
goods were removed to a place of
safety and very little loss sustained
to them although some bedding was
somewhat damaged. The fire depart
ment was soon on the ground and had

ED LAST NIGHT
AUTO BANDITS BREAK IN AND
LOOT STORE OF FRANK
From Thursday's Dully.
The activities of the auto bandits
in this county has spread to our
I neighboring town of Nehawka. which
last eveninir was the .scene of one of
!the biggest hauls that has been made
in the county so far. Ixiuisville.
Murray. Plattsmouth and Murdock
have been on the list of places hav-
I ing robberies of this nature and Xe
I hawka has joined the list with a
robbery which will result in the loss
j of at least $1,500 to Frank 1. Shtl
, don. the owner of the Sheldon gen
1 eral store and which was the victim
of the activities of the robbers.
I The discovery was made this
, morning when the time arrived for
1 the store to be opened up and from
the scattered stock Mr. Sheldon
makes an estimate of in the neighbor
; hood of $1,500 worth of merchandise
that has been taken by the robber
'and who have successfully made
- The greater part of the goods tak
en seemed to have been blankets,
shoes and clothing and the full
amount cannot be estimated until a
check is made of the stock of Mr.
Sheldon and the clerks.
The robbers had drilled a hole in
the door of then building that en
abled them to reach in and unlatch
the door and which permitted full
entrance to the store and the nuans
of carrying out the stock of good;
It is thought by the Nehawka peo
ple that the robbers were provided
with an auto truck or wagon as the
amount of stuff taken was too great
to be loaded in an automobile.
The exact time of the robbery is
hard to fix although it is thought
that it must have occurred early in
the evening while a larger part of
the residents of the city were at a
banquet he:ng held at the town hali
and which permitted tho robbers
plenty of time to carry on their wOrk
and get away with it.
Sheriff Quinton was notified of th"
robbery this morning but by that
time the robbers had had several
hours start and were able to rjcli
Omaha or Lincoln with their haul.

mercy of the Father who has calb?d
the lad away from his earthly life to
the rest of the blessfd land brings
to the sufferer a relief and rest from

Kugene Ilitchman ami William Doty.
They were all riding in the front

and met with their t ruble at the side

tjust east of town. As they we it up
over the crossing the lights did not
focus so as to make the road plainly
visible, and at the .same liinc the
jolt of going over the gradfid cros
