cn Some of Their Issues.
The ninety-six republican members
of the Nebraska house have a j.-b on
their hands selecting the speaker to
preside over next winter's delibera
tion;;. Seven members have already
announced their candidacy or have
hinted that they will shortly enter
These are Andenon of Lancaster.
Snow of Dawes. Druesdow of Douglas,
Uryan of Franklin. Good of Nema
ha, Rodman of Kimball and Axteii of
Jefferson. In addition there are
Williams of Filniore. Eiperson of
Clay and McLellan of Hall who are
mentioned as good timber if the
members cannot make a choice be
tween the candidates.
Mr. Snow, who is an editor at
Chadron, has sent out to members
the following letter:
Election return.-; show that the
lower house in the next Nebraska
legislature will be organized by the
. Doubtleis there will be several
candidates for the various positions.
Plenty of time should be taken to
study the field well in order that our
organization may be the best pos
sible. I have decided to be a candidate
for Speaker. If after looking over
the field, you consider me worthy of
your support. I shall appreciate your
vote and influence.
Mr. Snow was or." of the active
members of the last session, having
important committee assignments and
tiking part in the biff debates. An
derson is a new member, with exper
ience in the consti'uional convention.
Iru?.sdov and Axtell are hi the vet
eran legislator cla-;.-:. but reitlipr wa:;
much inclined to spevch-inaklng.
Byrum was one of the real leaders of
the house, a lawyer with a clear
brain and a power of debate that was
best exemplified in his championship
of the language law anil his opposi
tion to the coil law. Good was an
other real leader, and as chairman
of the appropriations committee held
on of the most responsible posts.
Kuii;::r. nas a member of the judi
ciary r- j i;nittee and a l.twyer who.e
ability to make a goc.l s-pcech made
i !m a conspicuous figure in many of
lb important debates.
It i nrt unlikely that the nonpar
tisan h: ?:i!e will be able to muster
sixteen to twenty vt. in the house.
In addition to the fifteen whose
names have lien heretofore printed
as being endorsed by the league,
there are several others whose sym
pathies are said to lie with a large
part of the league program. Dock of
Sutler was not f-Wttrl as a leaguer,
but he is a member of tlu? organiya
tion. Axtell was solidly supported
in Jefferson county by the railroad
men who were also lucking? the
league state ticket.
Whether the league members will
flwck by themselves when it comes
to the speakership or get behind one
of the candidates or whal their
cM'rs.? will b" v.iH net be deter
mined until they reach Lincoln. Last
year, with right members in the
house no effort was made to push the
leicue program. Schmidt of Saun
ders, who was beaten this year when
3 tried for the senate, sought to se
cure endorsement for several league
ideas, but he was unskilled in debate
and was ridden down every time.
The democrats are so few in num
ber that it is unlikely they will even
go through the form of putting up a
ticket in opposition to that of the
Senator L". K. Iiushee won a vin
dication from his constituents. The
senator, as acting governor, gave
Kirk the furlough that raised such
a rumpus. He took all responsibil
ity for himself, and this led the dem
ocrats to think they could get his
scalp. Unofficial returns show that
he carried the district this 3-ear by
1600. the largest majority ever se
cured by him. He was opposed by
T. C. Osborne, a substantial citizen
who had a good record of f-ervice in

Owing to the bad weather and the poor condition
of the roads we have decided to extend our sale until
Saturday, November 20th, thereby enabling those to
take advantage of our 20 discount, who were unable
to come to town during the rains.
We also wish to apologize to our customers for the
poor delivery service of late and wish to say we have
the mules on the job and they with our tin Elizabeth
ought to be more than able to deliver the goods.

The ladies of the P. E. O. society
on occasions throughout tho year
have given the gentlemen who are
known as the V.. I. L's. an opportun
ity of enjoying a social evening with
them and last night the occasion was
featured by a sumptuous banquet at
the parlors of the First Methodist
church and the event is one that
will be a bright spot In the history
of the sisterhood as well as a pleas
ant memory to the gentlemen who
wri guests of tho evening.
The tables were arranged in the
form of a five pointed star, the em-j

center piece being a large basket of
beautiful white roso, while the
tables were lavishly arranged with
decorations of roses intersperced with
trailing smilax and ferns, making a
very charming setting for the de
lightful time that was enjoyed as the
fifty members of the party arranged
themselves around the banquet board.
Mrs. H. U. MeClusky very grace
fully presided over the feast as toast
mistress and when the dainty repast
prepared by the Methodist ladies
had been enjoyed, the members of
the party were called upon to re
spond to the various toasts, Mrs. John
W. C'rabill. president of the 1 E. O.
chapter F. welcomed in a few well
chosen words the guests of the even
ing and the How of wit and humor
that followed in the cleverly arrang
ed toasts was mi.ch enjoyed. County
Attorney A. G. Cole was the first of
the "mere men" to respond and his
subject was that of "The League of
Notions." lie was followed by Mrs.
A. V. Hunter with "Our Notions of
You." while E. II. Wescott came
back at the ladies with the li. I. L's.
notions of them, both toasts being
ver much enjoyed.
Rev. A. V. Hunter favored the
members of the party with a delight
ful solo and was followed by G. L.
Farley who. in "Frills and Fancies."
a poetical skit, expressed some very
enjoyable? sentiments for the occasion.
Mrs. W. A. Robertson spoke on the
subject, "Ties," which proved a most
entertaining toast. Mrs. H. F. Goos
and Mrs. George L. Farley favored
the members of the party with an
artistic piano duet that proved an
enjoyable feature of the gathering as
did the vocal number of Mrs. E. II.
Wescott. one of the most talented
vocalists of the city. T. H. Pollock
on "Hobbies." and C A. Rawls with
his toast. "Precious Every One." paid
a graceful-tribute to the ladies who
had provided the pleasant occasion.
To close the banquet, several of the
I!. I. L's. gave parodies on some of
the popular songs which brought
forth much merriment.
The feast had been prepared by
the ladies societies of the Methodist
church and they were" true to their
reputation as cooks and in the ar
rangement of the banquet proved
that they were past masters in the
art of handling an event of this
kind. The Social Workers had charge
of the serving and proved most adept
at this feature of the evening's pro
gram. The P.. I. L's. are feeling today
that they would be delighted to have
the ladies provide another feast as
enjoyable as that of last evening in
the near future, and will eagerly look
forward to another meeting of the
P. E. O. society as hostesses.

of the county will be sorry to learn
