Former Mayor of Lincoln Announces
Program on Which BY Will

In submitting my name as a dem
ocratic candidate for governor at the
primary election, I do so with the
assurance of many that my candi
dacy will prevent the injection of
the liquor question into the state
camoaien and encourage a mmiani
democracy to concentrate its efforts
upon tax reduction and business ei
flHonev in state management.
The rpnuhllcan beneficiaries of
high salaries and numerous political
inha ran not be emected to lower
their own salaries or to abolish their
own joDs.
I believe the taxes should be, ana
can be reduced.
I believe that the way to reduce
taxes is to reduce the cost of govern
ment, and to be more specmc:
I believe the- code bill should De
I believe that the duplication oi
administrative heads, as now in
force, has greatly added to the num
ber of employes on the pay roll, low
ered the efficiency of the service, of
the state government and is an im
position upon the taxpayers.
I favor placing the administrative
and departmental work of the state
back into the hands of the regularly
elected state officials, as intended by
the constitution.
I believe in a re-grouping of the
various departments in the hands of
the proper state officials where said
state officials can be held directly
responsible to the voters who elect
them, and that the great army of
useless employes now on the pay
roll should be discharged as a mat
ter of economy.
I do not believe that merely a
"modification" of the code bill will
purge the state's pay roll of super
fluous employes. "Modification" en
ables candidates to straddle the is
sue and enables irresponsible cam

campaign workers an unlimited num

I am in favor of abolishing joy
riding at the people's expense by the
numerous state officers and employes
on mileage books paid for by the tax
payers. I believe that the cost of the new
state capitol should be kept within
the appropriation and that the very
apparent profiteering in the bids for
construction of the new capitol
building should be handled without
gloves. j
I believe that the recently enact
ed revenue bill should . be repealed
or amended to prevent discrimina
tion in favor of the. bond holders as
against the farmers and other own
ers of tangible property.
Recognizing the automobile as a
necessity to all classes of citizens, I
favor the reduction of the automo
bile license tax in proportion to the
reduction in income of the farmers
and wage-earners of the state.
Retrenchment should be the
watchword until the farmers and
wage-earners recover from the disas
trous effects of deflation caused by
the misuse of the federal reserve act.
In considering appropriations for
all state work and all state institu
tions, careful consideration should
be given to the people's financial con
dition. These questions deal with the tax
es and the peace of mind of the peo
ple, and until the unnecessary tax
eater is forced to take his hand out
of the taxpayer's pocket, the tax
payer is in no frame of mind to con
sider other subjects.
I favor the provisions of the Shep-pard-Towner
maternity bill.
I am a supporter of the primary
system and favor doing away with
the party circle, and am opposed to
the four bills becoming a law that
are to be voted upon under the ref
erendum. I am in favor of the repeal of, or
amendment to the indeterminate
sentence law and in favor of the
modification of the rules governing
the pardon board that permit and
encourage weak officials to release
from the penitentiary confirmed
criminals without proper punish
ment. Upon the prosperity and welfare
of the farmer and the wage-earners
depend the prosperity and progress
of the state as a whole, and I will
encourage and support in the fut
ure, as I have in the past, every le
gitimate effort to Improve their con
dition and to facilitate their pro
gress. .

ability, or as to my devotion to the
cause of the common people, I refer

Inability to Get Contractors to Really
Bid on New State House May
Bring About This Action.
Harry Byrne, of Omaha, visited
the state house at Lincoln Wednes
day with information that contrac
tors are likely to raise Instead of
lower their bids on the first section
of the state house superstructure.
The capitol commission rejected all
bids and called for new bidding on
the ground that there was lack of
competition not only on the entire
section of the superstructure but on
the twenty-six different portions of
it. Contractors were permitted to
bid on any of the twenty-six differ
ent trades or upon the entire struct
ure. Only one bid on the work in its
Mr. Byrne reports that contractors
say they should not be expected to
bid an amount equal to the sum of
the twenty-six different Jobs upon
which tradesmen were asked to bid.
This he says will allow nothing for
superintendence of the various Jobs.
At least 10 per cent ought to be al
lowed a contractor for his skill and
for the Use of his equipment and for
the keeping together of a working
force. Otherwise, says Mr. Byrne,
there is no Inducement for a con
tractor to keep trained men on his
payroll and to build up an equip
ment. "The contractors may be surprised
if the state should decide to build the
capitol on its own account without
the aid of contractors," suggested
Secretary L. W. Home of the gover
nor's office.
Mr. Byrne says the report that bids
are likely to be higher the second
time than at the original bidding is
supported by reports that building
material is going up rather than
down. His Opinion Is that the big
contractors are now becoming so in
dependent that they do not care
whether they bid or not. Many big
contracts In the east are now taken
on a per centage of cost, or a flat
fee for superintendence, the owner to
buy and pay for all labor and ma
terial. When a contractor Is thus
employed he superintends the work
and is paid for his knowledge of the
building trade and for managing
men employed on the Job. This elim
inates the risk of loss by the con
tractor due to fluctuation of prices in
material and labor, but holds the
contractor down to a rather definite
amount for his services. The three
million dollar technical high school
building in Omaha was awarded to
the lowest bidder on some such term,
the school district to pay for material
and labor and audit their own ac
counts. - .
At the recent' bidding when all
bids were rejected, Governor McKel
vie was quoted as saying the capitol
commission might leave the present
hole in the ground until such time as
contractors show some spirit of com
For a number of weeks the state
railway commission has been engag
ed in gathering information regard
ing the long distance motor bus lines
operating in the state for the purpose
of requiring the men or corporations
engaged in the business to give suffi
cient bond to cover any damage sus
tained by those who might suffer
personal injury or otherwise acquire
a cause of action against the opera
tors. The commission sent out to
commercial clubs in the various
towns queries as to the lines being
operated out of there, if any, with
the names and addresses of those
owning the vehicles.
Information has been received in
regard to twenty lines, seven of
which operate out of Omaha and four
out of Lincoln. It is believed that
there are a number of others which
have not been reported. The com
mission will require the owners of
these common carriers to give a
bond covering liability.
The lines running out of Omaha
are to Fremont, Nebraska City, Avo-
car Shenandoah, Iowa; Weeping Wa
ter, Lincoln. Those out of Lincoln
are to Omaha, Beatrice, Nebraska
City and Grand Island. Other lines
are: Private to Auburn or call trips

Halucinations Told in Rhyme
by Amateur Poet.
Hooch drinkers, Beware! Take
Imbibers of the extracted kick of
corn, barley, rye, and the Lord only
knows what not, are finding it to
possess a kick similar to that of the
well known mule that hails from
the Show Me state, and beside which
the worst effects of the former Squir
rel whiskey would be tame indeed.
Prohibition is with us but hand in
hand come its companions, the illicit
still, hidden away in musty cellars,
dug-outs, etc., not subject to even
the least enforcement of sanitation,
turning out thousands of gallons of
raw corn juice.
Some of the effects that follow
the drinking thereof are best describ
ed in the following poem, the title
of which has been very effectively
named "Hooch:"
It was a nice day in October,
Last September in July.
The moon lay thick upon the ground,
The mud shone in the sky.
The flowers were singing sweetly.
The birds were in full bloom;
Then I went into the basement
To sweep an upstairs room.
? TH time was Tuesday morning,
riOn a Wednesday just at night
I saw a thousand miles away,
A house just out of sight.
The walls projected backwards,
The front was round in back;
It stood alone with two others.
The fence was whitewashed black.
It was moonlight on the ocean,
Not a street car was in sight;
The sun was shining brightly,
For it rained all day that night.
It was summer in the winter,
Therain was snowing fast;
A barefoot boy with shoes on
Stood sitting on the grass. '
It was evening and the rising sun
Was sitting in the night;
And everything that I could see
Was hidden out of sight.
While the organ peeled potatoes,
Lard was rendered by the choir;
While the sexton rang the dish-rags,
Someone set the church afire.
"Holy Smoke," the preacher shouted.
In the rain he lost his hair.
Now his head resembles heaven.
For there is no parting there.
