Republican Candidate for Govern
or Announces Attitude on
Question of State
Helped Defeat Corrupt Lobby in Legis
Introduced Measure in Legislature of 1905
Which Brought About Creation of
State Board N o t
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
"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.
"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

armg the government near to
: he people , but what is of greater
importance , to awaken in the
individual voter a keener sense
of the responsibilities of citizen
ship. 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. *
"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.
"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
"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. E. CADY ,
