Lincoln, July II. "The unpardon
able tin." J. II. F.diuisteu concluded
after a discussion of Nebraska poli
, tic, "is to vote the republican
ticket." A chairman of the recently
formed progressive party he has no
Mich scruples' against aiding the
democrat. In fact, most of the
candidate for the progressive nom
ination on the state ticket are filed
also on the democratic ticket.
This is true of J. N. Norton, who
is running for governor on both
tickets. It is the cause of bitter dis
sension among the progressives and
has led to the entry of W. J. Taylor,
a farmer of Menu, as a second
candidate for the procressive nom
ination for governor. It also has
brought out Anson H. Bigelow, a
labor attorney of Omaha, as an op
ponent of Judge Arthur G. Wray iu
the senatorial race.
Branded As Mugwumps.
Plot and counterplot, rumors and
accusations of all sorts, abound in
the progressive party camp. Ask
Mr. Kdmistcn to name the entries
for the progressive nomination and i
lie will not mention Taylor or Bige
low. Remind him of their omission
and he will fly into something: very
like rage as he brands them as mug
wumps. On the other hand, there is Mr.
Taylor, who talks like this: "Gentle
men, you who have filed in two
parties and have sworn that you
afliliate with both, stand up and be
( ountcd. What ticket will you vote
in the primary? Which platform
will you support? Which organiza
tion will direct your campaign?
Which stata. convention will you at
tend? Norton, if you win in both
primaries, in whose car will you
ride, Hitchcock's or Bigelow's?
(Notice that Mr. Taylor ignores
Judge Wray's candidacy, no doubt
assuming that he will withdraw.) If
you lose in the democratic primary
you have lost in the other."
Eliminated by Both Parties.
This latter reference is to the pro
vision of the law by which if Norton
should lose the democratic nomina
tion while winning the progressive
nomination by a smaller vote he
would be eliminated by both parties.
Chairman Edmistcn declares that in
such case Mr. Taylor himself would
not legally have the nomination, but
that the place on the ticket would be
tilled by someone selected by the
progressive state committee.
Some claim that the progressive
party is designed to lead the radicals
into the democratic party. The fu
sionists say that only by combining
tht conservative democratic strength
vith the radical support can the re
publicans be defeated.
Few Votes.
As a matter of fact, there will be
few votes in the progressive party
primary next week. This is not to
f.y that the ghost of Theodore
Kooscvelt is not stalking in Nebraska
nor that there is not a great deal of
irritation at everything. It is simply
that most people of all classes are
.ticking to their old political affilia
tions. The quibbling among the
third party leaders has "killed interest
in it. The shift of Wray from the
governorship to the senatorship race
estranged many followers. There are
furthermore several men, some on
the democratic ticket and others on
the republican, whom the farmers
For another thing, the farmer vote
will be light because the primaries
come at a time when they are busy
in the fields or threshing. Enough
rain to stop farm work would bring
out a larger proportion. However,
the interest of the farmers has not
yet been aroused. The silence of the
country newspapers on men and is
sues is blamed for this by the poli
ticians. Splitting of Tickets.
The full effect of the farm vote will
not be felt until the fall election.
Evert then it is hardly probable that
it will go to the. third party candi
dates or to those who have fused
with the democrats. What may be
looked for is a splitting of tickets
in which voters of all parties will
play with deuces wild.
This spirit of independent voting is
found in the most unexpected places.
Just as an instance, there is George
Jackson of Nelson, formerly speaker
of the legislature , and once demo
cratic candidate for governor. He
confides to his friends that when
he goes to the election booth this
fait he will vote for as many republi
can candidates as he does democrats.
An organized factor in this split
voting is the Nonpartisan league.
Early in September the members of
this farm organization will hold a
state convention at which they will
endorse candidates irrespective of on
what ticket they appear. Lynn J.
Frazier, who recently won the re
publican nomination for senator in
North Dakota, will be brought into
the state to address meetings of
farmers and wag earners. Arthur
C. Townley. the founder of the
league, and Joseph Gilbert, editor of
the Nebraska league paper, the New

Sentence Imposed on F. M.
Ridings Affirmed by Su

Lincoln, Neb., July 11. (Special
Telegram.) The supreme court to
day affirmed sentence of one to 10
years imposed on F. M. Ridings,
president of the Farmers State
bank, Halsey, by the Thomas county
district conurt.
The case was one of the first of
more than a dozer prosecutions
against bankheads sared by Aorney
General Clarence A. Davis. Ridings
was charged with issuing false cer
tificates of deposits aggregating $20,
000 on the bank without delivering
any valuable consideration in return.
These certificates were sold to banks
in North Dakota, Minnesota and
other s.Xfs. , v
After the ?rrest of Ridings these
banks attempted to collect the money
from the state guarantee fund. Davis
refused to permit J. E. Hart, secre
tary of trade and commerce, to draw
on the fund to cover these certifi
cates and took the fight to courts.
The courts upheld the Davis claims
that the guarantee fund was not le
gally responsible for these certifi
cates and $20,000 was saved the fund.

J. H. Furse, president of Union Pa
cific System Federation No. 105, in
a statement last night.

indicate that any of our men are re

Dinah Mr ImwiI
Washington. July 11. The United
States Rovertiment will not tolerate
ii'terlcremc with the transit of the
mails, interruption of interstate com
merce or interference with the ri(;ht
of employment.
This wa unanimous decision of
Prcsidrn Harding and his cavinet at
the scmi-wcckly meeting today. The
strike of railway shopcrafts employes
was the principal subject of discus
sion. It wa determined, moreover, that
all the resources of the government
should be employed, it necessary, to
carry out this policy.
After the cabinet meeting it was
announced at the White House that
President Harding would issue a
statement setting forth in detail the
attitude of '.he government toward
he strike and indicating the meas
ures that may be invoked to deal
with it.
Harding is Anxious.
Believing that the coal strike is
now in process ' of settlement the
president has ceased to worny about
that matter but did not conceal tho
fact that he is prey to considerable
anxiety over developments iu the
railroad strike. He regards it his
duty to adopt a tirm attitude and to
lose no time in checking by aggres
sive action the spread of violence
which already has begun to interfere
with transportation and the transit
of the mail?.
Attorney General Daugherty said
that the situation up to date, in his
opinion, did not warrant tne. institu
tion nf letral nroceedines aeainst the
strikers by the government, but that
as soon as the president denned me
policy of the government he would
be ready to proceed to carry out any
measures within his jurisdiction
which the executive may specify.
The Department of Justice con
tinnpH rlnrinir the dav to appoint
special deputy marshals to cope with
violence wherever requests tor sucn
reinforcements were made by judges
or district attorneys.

Postmaster General Work sub
mitted to the cabinet meeting a sur
vey of the instances of interference

at St. Louis. Superintendent Cisler
states that President J. E. Taussig
o fthe Wabash Raiyway company
has made this announcement, but did
not say what trains will be with
drawn. Mr. Cisler is also advised that
the situation on the Missouri, Kan
sas & Texas railway is assuming se
rious proportions and that this road
has been unable to provide train ser
vice since yesteday on the Hannibal
& New Franklin line.
Superintendent Cisler stated that
the fuel situation is very Serious be
cause of the impossibility of getting,
coal moved over, foreign lines from

Mrs. Stokes Wins Suit
to Save Dower Rights
New York, July 11. Mrs. Helen
Elwood Stokes won her fight to have
her dower rights to property valued
at more than $6,000,000 restored
when Supreme Court Justice Daniel
F. Cohalan handed down a decision
in the suit she brought against her
husband, W. E. D. Stokes, wealthy
hotel man and real estate operator.
Mrs. Stokes alleged that she signed -away
her dower right9 to the prop
erty under a misapprehensicm that
it was necessary for, her to do so at
once. The defendant claimed that
she had signed over her dower rights
as part of an ante-nuptial pact.
Mrs. Stokes, who secured a separa
tion from her husband and $18,000 a
year temporary alimony last fall,
will have an interest amounting to
