T1US BIIYAN OF NEBRASICA GETS
WHAT HE AVANTS
Continued from Pago 5
got together. , It could he done, ho
said, if Hitchcock would do these
1. Accept prohibition and women's
suffrage. .- -
2. Open no flglit on either of them
3. Pledge himself to vote for funds
for stricter dry enforcement.
Hitchcock filed for senator and two
days later accepted Bryan's state
ment. "Brother" Charley" filed for
governor- on the last afternoon of the
last day, and tlie campaign was on.
Both mon coasted through the
primaries in good shape, but met
strong Republicans at tho goneral
election. Hitchcock's opponent was
R. B. Howell, an "Omaha progres
sive, who had -led- a fight for, and
was operating, a municipal water
plant there, "Brother Charley"
was pitted against Charles H. Ran
dall, conservative, -a ' state senator
and president of the Bankers' As
sociation of Nebraska.
AN ATTACK ON BROTHER "BILL'
Tho two parties sent men out to
stump the state and "W. J.'' came in
to talk for "Brother Charley" and
HitchCQok causing their opponents
to fsftream, "The Bryans have gone
over to tho 'wets.' Here's Bill Jen-
tnings talking for Hitchcock, him
. The screaming got pretty loud and
tho campaign very hot, but election
day saw one- man from each party
going into office "Brother Charley"
being elected by a 50,000 majority
and Howell by 75,000. Hitcihcock at
tributed his defeat to German and
Irish votes go!ng against him
through his support of tho adminis
tration's side of the v'ersa'lles treaty,
which the Germans thought was too
harsh and the Irish looked upon as
a blow at Irish freedom.
What is "Brother Charley" going
to try hardest to do .as Nebraska's
"Get 'em down, got 'em down,
get 'em down," has been the chant
of the people there, as in almost
every other state in the Union, and
"Brother Charley" plans to start a
fight toward that end the moment
he is seated in the executive - chair,
January 4; 1923, and keep-it up until
he gets action on the matter.
There are other points he plans to
put through matters that deal
strictly with Nebraska but the tax
question is first and foremost on his
list of chores." He is going to have
a Republican legislature .to battle,
but he just grins, with a slight hitch
ing up his trousers and doubling up
h's fists attitude on that nnrA
'"Brother Charley" has fought before.
He lovos a scrap!
What is the man like, himself?
He rominds oneof a very business
like, up-to-date farmer, a- man, say,
who has a couple of ranches and a
ho3t of other interests on his hands,
which, incidentally, "Brother
Ho is a big man, with a round,
good looking face, "a gray mustache
and the Bryan hair none. He is
given to small black bow Ties, the
fashionable ones of the day, not the
string ono3 "W. J." uses on the lec
ture platform. He wears glasses
and when talking to one has just one
nervous habit he puts his hat on,
takes it off, puts it on, takes it off.
He doesn't realize he's doing it.
His office The Commoner office
at Thirteenth aria" N Btroets, Lincoln,
fairly shouts of mementoes of the
former political fights he and "W.
J." have gone through. There's a
framed cartoon on tho wall, dating
back to the 1912 campaign, entitled
"The Sacrifice Hit." It shows "W.
J." at bat, hitting urhot liner which
catches Charley Murphy, Tammany
leader, tho pitcher, on tho nose while
Woodrow Wilson scores from third
baso. Thore is another framed car
bon, dating back to 1896, and a
framed editorial of that date.
Tho walls bear pictures, of "W. J.,"
Woodrow Wilson, w Wilson cabinet
meeting when "W. J." "was secretary
of state, and of personal fr!enda

his 21-year-old daughter, MaryloUise

years, when ''Brother Charley" goes
into office, January 1.
"We can entertain our friends bet
ter therej" the Bryans say.
Those friends well, to put it
slangly, they're the one thing thaf
Lincoln -"is fuirest of." There are
the friends who belong to tlie Bryan's
dancing and Saturday night "get
together", clubs such as the Mo
Kelvies, the retiring gubernatorial
family, for instance and there are
the friends who just know "Brother
Charley" by sight, but for whom he
reduced the coal prices last winter
and the ice prices this summer and
who haven't forgotten those fights,
nor ever will.
The latter branch of, friends, and
many of the former, marched up to
"Brother Charley's" house the
Thursday night after election to hold
a ratification meeting. They hired a
band and gathered recruits as they
marched down O street until there
were -seven hundred of them when

So the seven hundred flocked in
