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.

Settlement of Strike Looms as Con

are done:
1. If the carriers agree to wipe out
the system under which some roads

surance that his organization will
not be denied a rehearing by the la

4. If the railroads agree to estab

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

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.

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

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 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."
