CADY ISSUES HiS PLATFORAl Republican Candidate for Govern or Announces Attitude on Question of State Import. THIRTY-POUR YEARS IN THE STATE Helped Defeat Corrupt Lobby in Legis lature. BILL TOR RAILWAY COMMISSION Introduced Measure in Legislature of 1905 Which Brought About Creation of State Board N o t Optionist. Lincoln , Neb , , July 16. ( Spec- al. ) A. E. Cacly , who has filed lis name as a candidate for the the republican nomination for jovernor , has issued a statement ; o the voters of the state. The statement is as follows : "In announcing- candidacy 'or the republican nomination 'or governor , I wish to make a briet statement of my attitude relative to matter of most public concern. "While it is inevitable that new questions of pressing im portance will arise from year to pear , the issue of clean and pru dent government , I deem always to be paramount. Simply be cause I was zealous , advocate of an issue of passing importance , would not entitle me to public confidence. It is not alone what [ stand for today , but what has jeeti my attitude in the past that should be the the real meas ure of my value as a public ser vant. Within the sphere of my imited Influence , I have always contended for clean men and clean methods , and I firmly jeleive that whatever beside may be essential , that unless built on this foundation , an enduring re public hopeless. TUIRTY-tfOUR YEARS IN STATE "I have been a resident of Ne braska nearly thirty-four , years , part of that time engagedin news paper work and the remainder in : ommerical pursuits. My office- tiolding record is confined to two terms in the legislature in the house 1SS9 and senate in 1905. In the session of 1889 I was fortunate in being permitted to aid in accomplishing the defeat and downlall of the best organis ed and most corrupt lobby with which the state was ever infest ed. I also prepared legislation that prevented exploitation of the state saline lands. I prepared and introduced the bill providing for the submission of an amend ment to the constitution creating an elective railway commission which passed in the session of 1905. The adoption of this amendment , together with the legislation enacted to give it effect , have worked a beneficent reform felt in every depart ment of our state government. I ad vocated and voted for an ant - pass bill in the same session. Though not a member when passed , I advocated the primafy law , believing then and now that it is desirable not alone to UUU.IUI If it is in tlie Brocen ? The Best Flour. English and Holland Wafers.

While the law may not lave realized in full the anticipa tions of its most zealous adocatcs ? et I confidently believe that it s destined to be a tov/er of strength to good government. * ALWAYS REPUBLICAN. "I have always affiiliated with he republican party , whose can didate I now aspire to be but I Irmly believe that the highest > artisan service is rendered by an honest effort to demonstrate that theparty with which one affili ates is the best medium through which to attain good government. [ do not believe in making the public institutions havens for ndigent politicians , or auxiliaries of a political machine , but that they should be conducted on strictly prudent business lines , always with a view to the welfare of the inmates. "Personally I have never be- ieved the adoption of county option necessary to control the .iquor traffic. The enactment of ttfis law , however , is purely a legislative function , with which the executive has nothing to do , until presented to him for his approval or disapproval. It the people through their representa tives demanded this legislation [ should deem it my duty , if gov ernor , to approve. I do not con strue the power of veto vested in the chief executive to be a per sonal asset , but a discretionary power necessary to vest in some ane , to meet the requirements of jrave emergencies and possible invasions of the constitution. To threaten in advance of its en actment to the veto of this legis lation might consistently be sup plemented by the threat to invoke the pardoning power in behalf of every vidlatcr of the law , should the veto be disregarbed. TAI'T AND ROOSHVKI/T. "I believe that President Taf t is in full sympathy with the policies of Mr. Roosevelt , and that his administration will merit and receive general com mendation. There has been no wiser legislation in recent years than that creating a tariff com mission , giving assurance that future legislation will be based on a more impartial , scientific and less sectionail and partisan basis. "With this purely personal statement , I Submit my candid acy. Should the people see fit to nominate and elect me gov ernor , 1 will devote to their ser vice whatever of experience and ability I may possess , animated by the sincere desire to adminis ter their affairs in tf dignified , economical and business-like manner. i A.
