LOOKING FOR THE PARTY ASSAILING MRS.GEORGE LUTZ Authorities Think Possibly Man Es caping from State Eeformatory Saturday May be the One The search for the man who com mitted the assault and robbery at the home of Mrs. George Lutz in Louisville Monday afternoon is being continued over this portion of the state and from the circumstances of the case there is a strong belief that the perpetrator cf the outrage may be the man who made ris escape from the state reformatory on Sat urday last. This man, who is known as unaries Newhorter, and was sent up, it is claimed for an offense of breaking and entering a home, made his escape from the state institution Saturday and has not been seen since. The cases are somewhat similar and it is thought the man may have had time to work his way along as far as Louisville by Monday, and there is a strong probability that the connecting link between the two circumstances may be uncovered by the authorities. Sheriff Quinton and County Attor ney Cole are to get in touch with the authorities at the state reformatory and secure a portrait of the man to see if it can be identified by the in jured woman as that of the man committing the act at Louisville. It is stated that this same man, after making his escape from the re formatory, entered a home on the outskirts of Lincoln and attacked a lady there. Lose anything! Find anything!

(POLITICAL ADVERTISING) (POLITICAL ADVERTISING) FOR REPRESENTATIVE FROM FIRST DISTRICT RAIL BOARD HEAD AND UNION CHIEFS IN SECRET SESSION Settlement of Strike Looms as Con ference Between Hooper and Shop Crafts Leaders. Chicago, July 12. 2 a. m. Set tlement of the strike of 300,000 rail way shopmen thruout the country seemed in prospect tonight follow ing the personal intervention of President Harding and a series of se cret conferences between Ben W. Hooper, chairman of the United States railroad 'abor board, and un ion leaders of the six striking shop crafts. What part President Harding will r'ay has not been disclosed. It is known, however, that the president vas in telephonic communication 1 ere late last night with W. L. Mc L.tnimen, one of the three labor rep i sentatives on the railroad labor b iard. From the secret peace conferences his come a rather definite conclu Flon as to what may be done to ef f. ' t a settlement. While beyond is suing brief and rather noncommit tal statements, Mr. Hooper and Pres ident Jewell declined to discuss pros poets, reports indicated that the s'rike will be called off if four things are done: 1. If the carriers agree to wipe out the system under which some roads have let out work to contractors not within the jurisdiction of the labor board and therefore not bound by its decisions on wages and working con ditions. 2. If some arrangement for modi fying certain working rules which cut the overtime pay of shop men Is made. 3.

LETTER OF APPRE CIATION FROM A SHUBERT VOTER Published in Shubert Citizen, Shu bert. Neb. John H. More head is Commended. . John H. Morehead has lived In Richardson county for more than thirty-six years. He has filed as a candidate for the important position of representative in congress. Gov ernor Morehead has served the peo ple of thi3 county and state at dif ferent times. In each instance he served well, and In addition has giv en his full time to the duties of the position which he was called upon to fill. He has always stood for the strictest economy in the manage ment of public business. In 1913, when he assumed the important post of governor of Nebraska, he found that a deficit existed In several of the state institutions. Regardless of this fact the levy was not raised, and at the cloe of the first term the de ficit was wiped out. During his sec ond term as governor, he reduced the state levy more than $800,000, and at the close of his administration left the state free from debt. These results were accomplished because we had a recognized busi ness man as our chief executive, and the people of Nebraska almost with- MSH .111 T3S?rafTJ One quality only the standard for all Goodrich Tires Size or price cannot modify the one quality Goodrich standard.

GOODRICH RUBBER COMPANY Akron, Ohio FABRICS SILVERTOWN CORDS TUBES ACCESSORIES STJEPEISED ON BIRTHDAY Yesterday was the 68th birthday anniversary of Mrs. F. S. "White, one of the old residents of the city, and on the occasioin she was given a most delightful surprise by some eighteen of the old friends and neighbors who have known her in the many years of her residence here. The guest of honor had no intima tion of the pleasant occasion until the guests commenced arriving shortly after 2 o'clock and the greet ing of the friends was one long to be pleasantly remembered. One of the pleasurable features of the event was the presentation of a very hand some birthday cake which had lif-n prepared by Mrs. T. i Livingston, to the worthy lady who was observ ng her anniversary, and the cake with its glowing cnndles made a most impressive sight. Light refreshments were served during the course of the afternoon that was spent in social conversation and visiting. Blank Books at the Journal OEce. (POLITICAL ADVERTISING) (POLITICAL ADVERTISING) out exception, credit Governor More head with having given the people of the state a sane and businesslike administration. Therefore, with the admitted ex travagance and excessive expendi ture of public money in all branches cf our government, with the result ing high taxes which, if continued, will amount to the confiscation of our property, it is gratifying to see a man of Governor Morehead's abil ity, honesty and business experience become a candidate for congress. We furthermore believe that as an agri cultural state we should send to the national law-making body, more practical business men. The record shows that the lower house of con gress consists of more than four hundred members, three-fourths of whom are professional men, or law yers, and in this kind of a body a few men like Governor Morehead, who has had practical experience as a farmer, stock raiser,, merchant and banker would undoubtedly be a great benefit to the people. In our opin ion this is no time for narrow parti sanship or petty rivalry as to the success of political parties, for these are critical times, and we should send men to congress who are prac tical business men, who are inter ested in agriculture, and who know the burdens which are beiner Dlaced upon the taxpayers of the nation. Grave problems are confronting us as a people and, regardless of poli tics, we must draft the strongest and most experienced men that are avail able.

The Lincoln Daily Star has a staff of fine special writers that will rank with any daily paper in the west. Here is what the big special writer, Rambler Jones, thinks of Wilber An- "The friends of Wilber W. Anness, popular druggist and former news- paper man at Dunbar, and former business man of Elmwood, aspirant for the congressional nomination are loud in their claims for his right to the place.. "They Bay that he has always been a citizen of whom they could be proud; that he is a man of sound , Ju-Jgment, of clean life, capable and efficient, always active in anything launched for the community's pood, and that he would honor his home town and his home district If he could be sent to congress. "The Rambler has yet to hear a word unfavorable to the candidacy among those who know him best, re gardless of the political complexion of the speaker. Then they feel that he is entitled to consideration be cause he ran so well in the 1914 con test, but after he was defeated, he proved to be a good loser and gave his successful opponent the most loyal support. "His friends also point to his experience in the legislature and say that he is of legislative breadth and depth and a fine public speaker; that his record will bear the closest inspection. Although he has been absent from Elmwood for some years, yet they tell the Rambler there that he will sweep Cass county, for he has a host of friends there."
