Yards company, said the corporation
would shortly bo divided into two dis
trict companies for the purpose or
simplifying regulation. Tho carrying

Oillclals and unofllclnl lettirns from i
twenty-three counties of tho stato

president in connection with the Re

It Is taken for granted thut Secretary
Tatt will hold his lend and perhaps
Increase It ns other returns come in.
The Tatt boom got under headway
in Nebraska before that of any other
candidate and nothing has been able
to stop It. However, tho men who
want to make President Roosevelt the
party's candidate for president, in
spite of his announced refusal to run,
are feeling good over tho fuel thnt ho

lot SHUMWAY PERFECTS APPEAL
Secures Stay of Execution Pending
Hearing in Court.
Lincoln, March 8. R. Meado Shum
way, sentenced to hnng March 17 for
tho murder of Mrs. Martin on a farm
near Beatrice, was granted a stay of
execution by tho supreme court to
give his attorneys an opportunity to
appeal his case to the supreme court.
Shuinway's attorneys intend to lay
considerable stress on the fact that
one of the jurors who convicted Shum
way, afterward committed suicide. It
will be argued that tho juior knew ho
had made a mistake and therefore
took his own!!!:.

Texas Senator Voices Money Views of
Washington, March 10 Senator Jo
seph M. Halley ot Texas, a member of
the finance committee which reported
the Aidrlch currency bi;., held tho at
tention of Ills colleagues and visitors
who crowded the gallei m of the sen
ate for over two hours w.th a speech
in opposition to that measure sun. gen
eialy voiced the views of the minor
ity upon the subject of emergency
currency. He did not believe his sub
stitute for the Aidrlch bill would re
sult In Inflation, although It provided
for $500,000,000 as a permanent pnit
of our money supply. "The truth la."
ho said, "the national banks ot this
country are seeking to establish n sys
tem of asset currency, and they will
strivo to defeat any measure which
compels them to secure their circula
tion. They want the privilege of Is
suing their notes without Interest and
without security, nnd lending them to
the people for Interest and upon secur
ity. I shnll always Insist that tho
safety of our currency Is of infinitely
more Importance to the country than
the size of bank dividends."
The senate spent over an hour In
debating the Ft ye bill, providing that
suppltes and materials shipped fiom
the United' States for the Panama
canal shall only be transported In

of Loulslann were adopted and the sen
ate adjourned as a further mark of
respect. The house was in session buf
it few minutes, adjourning upon an
nouncement of Mr. Meyer's death.
