oluntary testimonials of regard
from mcji who had served with him
in the state legislature. One of these,
William Brookly of Edgar, is a
democrat. The other was Mon
llrodrick, a farmer of Fairfield. The
crowds were not large, seldom num
bering? more than 50 persons, but
the towns were small and the farm
ers arc busy in the fields.
At places along the way it was
declared that there are many cm
zens who do not know who is run
ning for even the most important
offices. A small primary vote
predicted in several localities. The
only candidate who had Dcen seen
was Byrum, and in recognition of
his fiery speeches, it was often said
that he was the local favorite for

Addresses All Crowds.
The crowd, large or small, Mr.
Howell discussed the issues of the
day for fully an hour at each stop,
and it must be said that his au
dience was always larger at the end
than at the beginning.
Frequently there were women
among them. They appeared inter
ested in his stand against any modi
fication of the prohibition laws or the
return of light wines and'becr.
First basing his position on moral
grounds, he later turned to the busi
ness aspect of prohibition. Almost
$3,000,000,000 a year would have been
spent with retail liquor dealers, he es
timated, without prohibition. The
saving of this sum, he declared, had
lessened adverse economic condi
tions. An English statesman was quoted
to the effect that if the British would
adopt prohibition they could pay the
war debt owing to America. From
this point Howell turned to condemn
the proposal of some eastern finan
cial interests for cancellation of the

and ice plants in Omaha has adver

Attacks Railroad Laws.
When he advocates the repeal of
the Esch-Cummins law it shocks no
one, for there is heavy resentment
over freight rates that lingers after
the recent reductions. He also en
dorses the farm bloc. If the railroad
troubles are to be settled it must be
done by some one besides the rail
road executives, he declares. The
a.nti-trust act has failed in this and
all other cases and ' so has the at
tempt at government regulation, he
told his audiences. He asserts state
railway commissions have little of
their power left and their idea of rate
revision is upward instead of down.
"I can conceive of a reason for the
government setting maximum freight
rates, but riot for a minimum rate,
which forbids competition," is one
of his statements.
He does not urge public owner
ship of the railroads and in fact says
that it would be a tremendous 1
calamity if all the lines were thrown
into the hands of the nation. He
then announces his scheme by which,
if government interference became
necessary, he would have the United
States take over only one transcon
tinental line and run it in competi
tion with the privately owned sys
tems. Mr. Howell calls this idea public

Railroad vifer to Overlook
. Valkout if Men Return
ly 3 Today Looked
on as Test.
Both Sides Confident
A crisis has been reached in the
railway shopmen's strike in Omaha.
A real test of the strength of the
strike begins this morning and will
continue to 3 this afternoon, due to
the Union Picnic order providing
that striking shopmen who have not
returned to work or registered for
their regular shifts by 3 will forfeit
their pension and seniority rights.'
Railway officials predict a large
number of the men will return to
work. Union officials say the men
will pay no attention to the order
and remain out.
As an added precaution, however,
picket lines will be doubled, possibly
tripled today, however, union lead
B. H. Fursc, president of Union
Pacific system federation No. 105,
asserted late yesterday that it was

unions approach the crisis, lie de
clared it was entirely possible that
B. M. Jewell, head of the railway em
ployes department, and Chairman
Hooper of the railway board will go
into conference and reach an agree
ment, but reiterated his contention
that there were no signs of desire
on the part of the strikers to return
until such an agreement is reached.
Union Pacific officials, on the other
hand, quote figures to show that
there is a "back to work" trend.
Says Railroads Mistaken-
"I have received information that
bulletins are being posted on the
Ka,nsas-Colorado division and es
pecially at Ellis, Kan-, which claim
50 per cent of the men remained at
work on the Union Pacific and that
260 men were working at Cheyenne,"
said President Furse, in a statement
last night. "Actual tabulation of re
ports show that the company state
ments are wrong and that between
98 and 99 per cent of the men are out
on the Union Pacific."
W. H. Guild, assistant to the vice
president of the Union Pacific, said
yesterday that 193 shopmen had re
turned to work on the system and
that 158 new men had been employed

strike order which resulted in the

The charge is identical with the
one under which Alexander Howat,

Secretary Davis Reports
"Little" Progress Made To
ward Settlement of
Coal Mine Strike.
Washington, July 7. Anthracite
mine operators and officials of the
miners' union, who have been meet
ing at President Harding's call to
consider means of settling the pres
ent strike, adjourned their sessions
until Monday, without definite re
sults being accomplished. Secretary
Davis, who sat in today's meeting as
the representative of the govern
ment, said, however, that a "little"
progress had been made.
The anthracite adjournment left
this section of the general conference
to settle the coal industry's labor
troubles in a position similar to that
of the bituminous conferees. Both
sections are now awaiting a gather
ing Monday, at which President
Harding may present some views in
behalf of the government.
The anthracite employers, prior
to the session with the miners' union
officials today, met with Secretary
Davis, but the difference which oc
casioned suspension of work in the
anthracite mines, when operators
asked reduction of wage rates and
tendered arbitration to determine be
tween that and the union's principal
demand for a maintenance of 1920-21
scales, still remained.
There were no indications that the
attitude of participants in the nego
tiations had changed. S. D. War

erators, while Philip Murray, vice
president of the United Mine Work
ers, was chief spokesman for the

Norris and Other Farm
Bloc Members Attack
Chances to Pass Remote
By GEORGE F. AUTHIER.
(Waaliln ton rorrMpondnat Omaha 1W)
Washington, July 7. (Special
Telegram.) With the defeat of the
cloture rule, which would have lim
ited debate on the tariff, in the senate
this morning hy a vote of 45 to 35,
chances of passing the legislation
this session became more remote.
In addition, the difficulties which
the supporters of the McCumber
tariff arc meeting from the demo
rratu, the republican insurgent move

agricultural state, makes the going
for the' tariff bill harder. Republi

democrats for failure to enact the

LaFollette Makes Attack.
The revolt against the tariff
schedules by republican senators
from agricultural states was voiced
in the senate today by Senator La
Follette of Wisconsin, who made a
violent attack upon the McCumber
He is supported, by Senator Nor
ris of Nebraska, who declared his in
tention, dotay ,of voting against the
bill, and declared that even the agri
cultural schedules arc too high.
Senator Lenroot of Wisconsin re
marked as an administration sena
tor, has shown signs, also, of revolt
and is opposing some of the sched
ules. The American Farm Bureau
Federation, through J. R. Howard,
has indicated growing opposition to
the measure, so the solid formation
of the farm bloc in favor of the bill,
headed by Senator Capper of Kansas,
appears to be broken.
The opposition which Senator
Norri's expressed today to the pend
ing tariff bill has been demonstrated
from time to time, but his unequivo
cal determination to vote against the
Hill on its final passage made to The
Omaha Bee today, is the first evi
dence of his intention to fight the
measure to a finish.
Calls Bill Nnscientific.
Senator Norris said he regarded
the present tariff bill as unscientific
and the rates too high. He said that
even the rates on farm products are
indefensible and would result in add
ing little to the price of the farm
products to the consumer, with the
possible exception of the hard wheat
of North Dakota, while the tariff as
a whole would add to the farmer's
The chief objection which Sena
tor Norris registers against the bill
is that it is not scientifically framed
and does not take into consideration
