COLONEL BATES SENDS
One of the many bursts of enthus
iasm that attended the democratic
convention and general harmony
meeting at Omaha yesterday was oc
casioned when the letter of Col. M.
A. nates of this city was read. The
colonel was elected as a delegate but
was prevented by illness from at
tending and his message when read
by the secretary provoked the great
est applause from the members of
Cass -ounty delegates report it
the greatest state convention for
many years. The message of Col.
I5ates is as follows:
'"Fellow democrats: I have but re
centlf passed my eightieth anniver
sary, and thought surely I would be
able to meet with and grasp the
hand3 of those with whom I have as
sembled in many conventions and
caueases in years gone by. I have
been a democratic worker for sixty
j'c-arh, twenty-two of which have
ieen served in line with the follow,
ers of Wilson. Bryan. Hitchcock,
Shallenberger, Neville, Morehead and
hundreds of true and tried demo
crats who are here today.
"I have been confined to my room
for the past week, but feel able to
send a word of cheer to those who
are present in person, to render aid
to those who have always been for
the interest of the common people.
Something must be done to relieve
the taxridden people of Nebraska.
And that relief must come through
the democratic party. The records of
Ex-Oovernors Shallenberger, More
head and Neville are still fresh in
the minds of all of you here today,
ard we have the 'man of the hour'
in the person of Charles W. Bryan,
whose record is as bright and shin
ing as the noonday sun, and he can
be elected governor of Nebraska with
a united democracy to shove along
to a victory which awaits him at
the polls in November.
"My heartfelt wish is that har
mony will prevail without a doubt,
and God speed the day when the peo
ple aro relieved from the burden
which McKelvie has placed upon
"Good luck to you gentlemen.
May God. justice and right be your
"Yours for peace and harmony,
"COL. M. A. BATES."
COMPLAIN OF STATE AGENTS
Yesterday, when State Deputy
Sheriffs Milton Gates and Karl
Pchmitt were enroute back to Lin
coln from this locality where they
had been raising several varieties of
"Cain" with the wet spots, they met
up with an auto traveler that result
ed in considerable trouble.
It seems as far as could be learned
here that the two state officers met
a car driven by an Auburn auto deal
er and which contained four persons
It is claimed that the car had only
one license, number on It and the
driver requested to stop and get out
and from this incident led the mix
up. It is claimed that the state agents
proceeded to beat up the Auburn man
when he failed to get out of the car.
It is reported here that the Auburn
parties would file suit for damages
against the two deputy sheriffs Jn
the district court of Cas3 county.

ressed. In his address to the conven
tion the senator made the following
reference to his present association
with Mr. Bryan:
"I am not embarrassed by the fact
that I am not obligated to him. I
congratulate the democrats on their
nomination of such a courageous and
splendid man as Charles W. Bryan.
For a number of years there has been
no political intimacy between him
and me. We have differed, as honest
men differ, and we have, upon oc
casion, fought as honest men fight.
Now that that occasion has passed
we can co-operate, as free men cooperate.

to the democratic state convention
at Omaha, returned last evening on
the late train and spent the night
here before returning to his home
east of Murray. He reports a very
harmonious and well attended meeting.
DISLOYALTY IS ON
League of American Pen Women
Launch Campaign for Great
A nation-wide campaign against
disloyalty to the United States what
ever nature, in the spoken or printed
word, has been launched by the
league of American Pen Women.
The efforts of those who attempt to
destroy American principles and in
stititutions are directed largely to
women and colleges.
The league of American Pen Wom
en holds within itself a tremendous
national power, composed as it is
and working through trained writ
ers through endless channels. There
are eighteen branches of the orga
nization' and 1,500 members in the
national body. Mrs. S. II. McKelvie
is at the head of the Nebraska divi
sion. Secretary of "War Weeks has writ
ten to the organization in part as
"I desire to express my deep ap
preciation of the resolution adopted
by the League of American Pen Wo
men to combat the activities of cer
tain organizations in the United
States, which are unpatriotic and
directed against preparation ade
quate to insure our national defense
and the preservation of law and or
der. Such action by an organization
of national strength with a member
ship of proven ability will have a
marked effect in counteracting the
un-American influences now preva
lent. Most of those who would destroy
the institutions and principles
which have carried our government
to her present enviable position of
world leadership, have directed their
attention primarily to the women of
America and the students in our col
leges, relying upon them for moral,
political and financial support.
Their panaceas, all of which have
been failures in the past, are
sugar-coated with appeals to the
noblest motives and ideals. For that

FALLS FOR OLD ONE
One of the well known real estate
dealers of the city, it is reported, was ;
the victim a few days since of an old
old con game that is so ancient that,
doubtless the man pulling it felt the '
affront he had offered to old age.
A stranger arrived in the city with j
the atmosphere of a seeker after a !

doning strife of the city and meet
ing one of the real estate men, he
was assured that he had come to the
right place and at the right time.
The prize was loaded in an auto and
taken over a number of the small
framing acreages near the city and
on which the stranger assured the
dealer in land that he desired to es
tablish a chicken farm.
This looked very good, and to show
his good faith, the stranger took
forth a check book and made out a
cheek for $100 on a St. Joseph,
(Mo.) bank to bind the deal. Then
is where the soft music starts, as the
stranger discovered when he started
away that he was short of funds and
drew a check for $10 which the real
estate dealer cashed and the strang
er "departed, leaving visions of a fat
commission with the dealer.
The awakening came later when
the land man called the bank, rela
tive to the check and found that the
stranger was a stranger, indeed, to
the bank and had nothing with
which to back up the check. It is
needless to say the local land dealer
has swore, "never again."
