Slop The Fight Pictures.
The gentlenn n representing the
City Federation who visited the city
hall recently in the hope of enlist
ing Mayor Clayton in the cause
against the prize fight pictures did
not get tiie encouragement they
sought. The mayor not only said
that he would personally give ten
dollars to see those pictures,were that
the price of admission, but made the
astounding declaration that there was
nothing demoralizing or degrading
about prize fights.
Now, whatever the mayor’s per
sonal views on these things are, he
forgets the dignity of his office when
he makes such an utterance as the
executive of the city, speaking offi
cially and for publication. Whole
some sentiment is against Mr. Clay
ton in this matter. His personal
views are not disputable; they are
matters of taste—as much so as it
was with the old woman who kissed
the cow—and there is no accounting
for tastes; but the official views
are subject to the criticism that they
are at variance with a nation-wide sen
timent that has found response in
many of the best governed and
most consequential communities in
this country. As a public servant,
Mayor Clayton should subordinate his
personal notion to the higher sen
timenl of his fellow citizens.
The gentlemen who are making
this effort against the prize fight
pictures should not be discourged by
their unsatisfactory interview with
Mayor Clayton. Their rebuff In that
quarter should spur their determina
tion to have expression from the
council; and they should also ap
peal to the police commissioners dir

STAND FOB HAYWARD
FAVOR HIM FOR CONGRESS
Newspapers of F’rst District Almost
Wnilara Hayward, who seeks tho
republican noininutlon for congress In
this district, is receiving the almost
unanimous approval of the republican
newspapers of this district. The fol
lowing are taken at random from the
many favorablo statements made:
Hayward conies of good stock, be
ing the son of the late Senator M. L.
Hayward. He Is a good lawyer and
Is a growing young man. It Is said
he was offered and declined the
posltibn of assistant postmaster gen
eral. Hayward Is by odds the best
equipped of any candidate so far
mentioned.- Pulls City Tribune.
Strong Candidate, Splendid Officer,
t'apt. William Hayward of Nebras
ka was in town on legal business
Tuesday, and favored the Chieftain
with a call. ('apt. Hayward aspires to
the republican nomination as candi
date for congress from the First Ne
braska District. He would make a
strong candidate and a splendid of
ficer. -Tecumseh Chieftain.
Nemaha for Hayward.
William II. Hay ware, republican
candidate in for the nomination for
congress in the First District, is a
native son of Nebraska. Ho comes of
distinguished ancestry and has In
herited those qualities which make
him an Ideal type of American young
manhood. Mr. Hayward Is a veteran
of the Spanish war and is a success
ful lawyer. He is a man of tho very
cleanest, character and his life has
been like nn open book. He Is of line
physique and has tntelleetu&l quali
ties in keeping with Ills stature. Al
though a young man he is a person of
national reputation and stands In the
very front rank In tho estimation of
the generffl public as to executive
ability. The First district 1* to
be congratulated on having such fiuo
material to select a congressman
from and we believe the republicans
of Nemaha county will not be back
ward in expressing their preferences
at the primaries for Mr. Hayward.
Tho 1’ress Is for Hayward first, last
and all the tlmo, and we shall do all
In our power to further his candidacy.
—Nebraska City Daily Press.
Wide Experience in Public Life.
Judge Hayward, though a young
man, has had wide experience In
political und public life, Is urtlve and
energetic, and iKinHessee the confi
dence of his political associates. He
Is putting up a straight forward cam
paign and has bright ^prospects of
sucess. His abilities were such as
to force the recognition of the repub
lican national committee two years
ago. He Is a good mixer, active and
energetic and possesses the mettle
of whoch good public servants are
Needed In Congress.
William Hayward of Nebraska City
Is one of the favorite sons of the
state, and his candidacy for congress
is arousing much interest. While yot
a comparatively young man. no
one doubts Ills ability or fitness, as
he is of the stalwart, progressive
type, such as Is needed In the legis
lative halls of the nation. A loyal
Nebraskan, he would carefully look
after the interests of the state at
the seat of government, but Is also
broad enough to see that the inter
ests of the people in other parts of
the country are conserved. Should
he prove the choice of Hirst district
republicans we predict they will
never have occasion to regret their
action—he will be a winner at the
polls and in the halls of Congress an
well. That Mr. Hayward’s honor and
Integrity are of the highest type uo
one knows better than those of us
who sat In the famous Halls City
convention and witnessed him re
fuse the congressional nomination
tendered him provided he would
break faith with his associates. Such
men deserve recognition and the
public is awakening to the fact. With
out disparagement to any others who
are or may be aspirants for congres
sional honors In this district, we are
persuaded that William Hayward. In
whatever position placed, will "make
good "—Humboldt Leader.
•Leader at the Bar of the State.
The announcement by William Hay
ward of bis candidacy for the repub
lican nomination for congress appears
elsewhere in this paper. Mr. Hay
ward's leading position at the bar of
the state is well known, and his
prominence as an active working re
publican, standing for the best prin
ciples of his party and for clean and
progressive methods in their advo
cacy, are beyond dispute. Of his per
sonal equipment for the position it Is
unnecessary to multiply wards, since
It 1b already established. Ills ad
dress and eloquence on the rostrum
have long been known to the public,
and in all the qualifications for the
duty of a congressman he is a candi
date of exceptional merit and high
promise.—Pawnee City Republican.
Chairman Hayward has a long and
fighting record for fidelity to pro
gressive republicanism.”—Lincoln Ev
ening News, Jan. 10, 1908
Comprehensive Grasp on Public
“Judge Hayward Is one of the
brainy young men of Nebraska with
a comprehensive grasp on public
questions. He was born at Nebraska
City, being a son of Senator Hayward;
graduated from the High School and
State University. He was Captain of
Company C, Second Nebraska In the
war with Spain. Is now Secretary of
the ■ Republican Natioual Committee
and Chairman of the State Com
mittee.”—Table Rock ArguA
