To Demand Moratorium.
With the news from the Rhine
came telegrams to the reparations
! commitsionfrom Berlin that several
4 German representatives are eu route
' to Paris to demand a moratorium on
cash payment for the next two
months and possibly for-the re
mainder of thit year. It is stated that
an equivalent in merchandise is
promised instead. xThe sudden plea
has forestalled the guaranty com
mission, which is now in Berlin try
ing to adjust the finances.
During the German crisis the
Rhine line is intended as a sanitary
cordon, to hold back communist
propaganda, rather than to hold back
physical attacks. About 2,500 French
and Belgian airplanes on the Rhine
make a physical attack impossible.
France is remarkably free from
communism, but its position might
grow dangerous if Germany were to
k adopt revolutionary ideas.

In many towns about the state,
prominent democrats, some tradition

the primary contest. The object,
which never it mentioned publicly, it
simply to collect the fragments of

for the national campaign of 1924. -
There are four candidates for the
democratic nomination for governor
of Nebraska. One is Dan Butler of
Omaha, anotfier is J. N. Norton, a
farmer of Polk county, who is en

Then there is Will M. Maupin, an
editor of Gering. The fourth is
Charles W. Bryan of Lincoln. There
are two democratic candidates for

ago he wrote to the Commoner, "I
believe that the democratic party can

believe it is possible to re-elect Sen

The conditions on which he based
this opinion were the acceptance by
Hitchcock of the prohibition and
suffrage issues, "as already settled
by the voters 'of the state," and the
assumption that he would "vote and

elected, to uphold the .well known
