It gives us pleasure to submit to
Use voters of this county the opinion
expressed by the ministers of David
City, Nebraska relatives to the Hon.
Chester A. Aldrich:
David City, Nebraska, Octoberr 24,
3 9lit—To The People of Nebraska:
Ever since the beginning of the
campaign a great many stories have
been set in circulation regarding
Chester H. Aldrich of this city, can
didate for governor.
The Ministerial union of David City
on its own motion assumed the respo
sibiiity of Investigating the following
charge with reference to Mr.
Aldrich, and we believe it our duty
to report the facts to the voters of
the state:
1 That Mr. Aldrich has been mar
ried several times.
2 That Mr. Aldrich made himself
wealthy in the race horse business.
3 That nine years ago Mr. Aldrich
obtained a divorce for a New York
woman on perjury testimony.
4 That Mr. Aldrich failed in David
City and settled his indebtedness at
20 cents on the dollar.
3 That some six years ago Mr.
Aldrich sustained a broken leg as
the result of a brawl in a bouse of
$ That Mr. Aldrich is in the habit
of drinking, unfl of becoming intoxi
cated. -
We find that each and every one
of the above charges is absolutely
false and malicious and we believe
they are being circulated with a delib
erate purpose to cloud the issue, and
confuse and decieve the voters of the
state, with reference, to the moral life
»Dd good citizenship of our fellow
We believe further that we have
conclusive proof that these Btories
amanated from brewery sources for
purpose of scattering the church vote.

We are disappointed this week in not being able to offer a whole
page of Herman matter as was originally intended. Unfortunately at
the last moment we were unable to get the supply as the demand wak
too great. It is truly a disappointment to us.

Dr. Kerr's Condition Critical.
It is with regret that we must say
there Is no change for the better in
l>r. Kerr's condition. Last week he
held his own remarkably well though
at no time was his case very hope
ful. Since Saturday he has had sev
eral sinking spells from which he
' rallies, but he is noticeable weaker.
Mis children with the exception of I)r.
(’. Ti. Kerr, who left Saturday morn
ing, have been with him this week.
Mrs. John A. Crook No Longer With
"The Queen of Beauty.”
Friends of Mrs. John A. Crook will
no doubt bo glad to hoar that she
is no longer with “The Queen of
•leauty” company, but lias received a
ompliment to her ability by having
been given one of the leading parts
in " Twelfth Night.' in the best Shakes
perinn company now playing the larg
est cities in Canada on the great
I'. I’. Walker Cireut. It was while re
hearsing a new play in Minneapolis
that Mrs. Crook's work attracted the
attention of a business manager for
the Walker Circuit and he Immediate
ly offered her a part with the Shake
speriau company which has been out
several months already this season.
We know this line of work will suit
her much better than her part in
"The Queen of Jhauty."
“House of a Thousand Candles.”
“The House of a Thousand Candles'
was this week’s offering at the (lehl
ing and drew a large house. The
company was an exceptionally good
one and the special scenery lias sel
dom been equaled in this city. The
strongest scene is tho wonderful
storm scene in the act where (lie
specially constructed scenery is one
of the bust features. It is one of
tho cleverest, bits of work yet shown
Richard Cotton plays Bates, the but
ler, which is far the strongest char
acter in tiie play, and lie is particu
larly good in the part. Mr. Walsh
makes u good Irishman and his work
in the third act was well worth men
tioning. Miss Hampton and Miss
Bell more were both good nad made
friends witli the audience at once.
With few exceptions the company
was good, the audience was apprecia
tive, which .Always has a notlcable ef
fect upon the production.
"The Burgomaster.
One of the best things seen at the
Uehling this season was “The Burgo
master’’ which sliowed here last Sat
urday night. Although Saturday is
a poor show night here, a large crowd
greeted Gus Weinburg and his ex
cellent company. “The Burgomaster”
hns lost none of its old time popu
larity or entertaining features. The
music is always catchy and there is
a world of fun from beginning to end.
Gus Weinburg is a show himself and
it is easy to see that as the Burgo
master he injects a good deal of wit
and fun that are not in the line of
the play. He had considerable fun
at the expense of some of our eity
deficiencies for which we forgive
Perhaps the most attractive bit of
music was the Indian chorus, “We’re
Civilized Now.’’ It was fine. The
Kangaroo ehorus is always pretty and
catchy and like the former called for
repeuted encores. The Bowery girls
surely made a hit. There was plenty
of good specialty, the dancing of the
Lockhart sisters being among the
best features.
The company throughout was good
and many other clever artists might
be sighted. “The Burgomaster” will
be well received if it comes to our
city again.
The services for the Christian
church will be held Sunday mornings
in the Court House and Sunday even
ings in the Electric Theater until
further notice. REV'. E. E. DAY.
The Kaffee Klatch was entertained
last Saturday by Miss Mable Dyford.
A very pleasant afternoon was passed
with needlework and music. Dandy
refreshments were served at five
o'clock, Miss Mable being assisted by
her sister, Miss Gertrude, who was at
home from Tecumseh for a few days.
The afternoon was made a most pleas
ant one for all present.
Died at Durchard, Monday Fune
ral From St. Francis Church
in This City Thursday
A message arrived Monday morning
announcing the serious illness oC
Father Bex. Several friends left at
once in automobile or by train and
reached Ilurehard quite a little while
before he passed away at 5:30 p. m.
at. tiiu age of sixty-three years.
The news of liIh death brought great
sadness to this city, where the Iter.
Father had lived so many years, and
made many friends, not only
among ills own purlshoners, but In
the community at. large.
Father Hex was well loved in this
city, lie was a good, kind and char
itable man with a kind word and
helping hand for all who were ia
trouble and need. He made friends
by his kindness and once made he
never lost their friendship.
His untiring efforts have brought
Ursullne convent up to its splendid
standing among sectarian schools.
Fooling tile growing need of a better
and larger church for bis congre
gation, Father Bex inaugerated the
plan to build a splendid edifice with
out making it a burden upon his
people. Several years ago lie started
tlie yearly assessment plan, oach
communicant being asked to contrib
ute yearly, according to his income
or salary until the amount desired
was raised. Each year the money was
Invested to good advantage, the inter
est always going to the building fund.
Last year the foundation of the
structure was built just north of the
convent and the corner stone was
laid with elaborate ceremonies. It
was hoped to finish the building early
this year but Father Hex's ill health
somewhat retarded the work. After
a serious illness he was sent south
to regain his health and further work
was put off for a time.
When lie returned from Florida it
became evident that the extensive
work of this parish was too heavy for
him and he asked to be relieved and
sent to a smaller charge that he
might rest At Bimhard, too, he
found himself unable to continue act
ive work and for some time past
has put the affairs of that parish in
the hands of his assistant
Father Hex has been a sufferer
from Bright's disease. He lias mad*
a brave fight and to relinquish his
work after years of faithful service
was no light thing for him to do.
He lias been building a borne near
the convent, and upon his last
visit here said in conversation with
friends that lie hoped to be settled
before cold weather set in that ha
might rest.
The new church, which Is now un
der construction, and though larger
than originally planned, It will stand
largely for the Indefatigable efforts
of Fnther liex, and his name will b«
linked in loving memory with it.
The body was brought from llurch
ard Wednesday afternoon and laid in
state in St. Francis Homan Catholic
church until 10:00 o'clock Thursday
morning when Solemn Requiem Mass
was said by Bishop Honicum, assisted
by Fathers Freeman, Dean of the
Wymore district.
The church was filled to overflow
ing and a long line of carriages con
taining friends followed the remains
to their last resting place in the
Homan Catholic cemetery.
DIPHTHERIA—The home of A. X.
Cook was quarantined against diphth
eria. his son, being the victim. The
child has been sick about a week.
His ailment was first pronounced
tonsilitis, the more serious symptoms
developing Sunday. Today, Thursday
he is reported better and it is believ
ed now he will recover.
