Why. Falls City Wants Hayward.
Kails City wants a federal building
and wants it bad enough to go after
it if she can find out where it is hid
Somebody got us an appropriation
of $6,000 for a site.
Burkett says he is it.
Maguire likewise claims the credit.
But the six thousand appropriation
is of no consequence because it isn't
enough and nobody seems to want it.
Now on the question of a new post
office, who is most likely to get it
for us Hayward or Maguire?
Maguire is a democrat; the next
house of congress is sure to be re
publican. To which one would a
republican congress be most likely
to grant a favor, Hayward, republican,
or Maguire, democrat?
Frank Hitchcock, now the postmas
ter general, was the chairman of the
national committee and appointed
Will Hayward secretary over the
protest of Senator Crane, Speakei
Cannon and a whole raft of old
timers to whom a western progress
ive didn't look good.
Hayward Is today one of the clos
est personal friends Postmaster Gen
eral Hitchcock has. Twice has he
offered Hayward the office of First
assistant postmaster general, but
each time the office lias been de
clined because Hayward prefers to
represent this district in congress.
Maguire has in several speeches bit
terly attacked the postmaster general
saying that, "Frank Hitchcock is not
fit to hold the office of postmaster
When Hitchcock comes to pass on
tile places entitled to a new poatof
fice building and advise with con
gioss concerning it, who is lie mosi
likely to favor, Hayward, his friend,
or Maguire, nia enemy .
Look at it Lom another angle. Lin
«otu has hugged the congressman foi
yours, and as a result lias been given
about all Uiu tavors going, 'i lit; man
wno does not live in Lincoln must
nave the united support of tho out
side eountit s or lie can’t bo nomi
nated for congress.
Lincoln has recently been given
several hundred thousand dollars for
a new post office, more recently stilt
she was given another large appro
priation to beautify the building and
grounds, and now Lincoln demands
further appropriations to improve
and enlarge her new postoffice build
Maguire lives in Lincoln.
Iiayward lives out side of Lincoln.
With a contest between Lincoln
and Falls City for an appropriation,
and only one appropriation can come
to tills district, which do you think
Maguire would favor?
The answer is easy.
There is today but one city in the
district entitled to a post office
building that lias none, and that city
is Falls City. Lincoln, Nebraska City
and l’lattsmouth are provided for.
Lincoln wants more and she wants
tlie congressman so she can get
Falls City wants a building and
she will get it if Hayward is elect
ed and she will not getitwithin the
t ext two years if he is not elected.
That's why Falls City wants Hayward

HAYWARD A I &3RESSIVE
Commended As S.ich By Senator
Cummins of Iowa
HIS RECORD PROVES THE FACT
Progressive republicans in the First
district of .Nebraska and all people
who approve the Roosevelt policies
in the nation, both those already en
acted into law and those still awaiting
congressional action, find an honest
and sincere answer to their hopes and
wishes in tho candidacy of William
Hayward for congress in the First
William Hayward is a progressive
republican, not by proclamation of
a favorable press bureau or the declar
ation of prejudiced personal friends
for election-day purposes, but by vir
tue of the acts of his entire political
j career and the record of things accom
plished in his years of struggle for
progressive policies and progressive
public oflicials In .Nebraska—years
through which he fought for these is
sues and principles without thought
of the effect of such a course on his
personal fortunes and without thought
of himself becoming at some future
time a candidate for public office.
In fact, at the time William Hay
ward entered into man’s estate and be
gan to take a part in public affairs
as a working unit in the political par
i ty of liis hereditary training and
[ choice, no field of personal advance
j nient looked more barren and forbid
ding, no course of personal action held
[ our surer promise of defeat ami retire
' nient to political oblivion, than an al
liance with the small band of progres
sives who fought for the control by
law of the great and arrogant corpora- ;
tions and all special interests which,
| through the iron hand of political su
; premacy, exploited the people* either
through the forms of law or by the
absence of regulatory statutes com
pelling a “square deal” between them
and the people.
But Hayward did not hesitate to
choose because the fight, for the right
looked disastrous io future personal
ambitions. That it was right, that it
was for the people, was.enough and
ne "enlisted for the war,” letting con
sequences care for themselves.
This is the public record of Wil
liam Hayward, written indelibly in the
history of the republican party in Ne
braska In the years of the recent
past. That it Is known, and appre
ciated at home and abroad is well
proven by an event of recent occur
rence. On Thursday, October HTtb,
Senator A. B. Cummins of Iowa, one
of the acknowledged leaders of west
ern progressive republican thought and
action in the Senate of the United
States, spoke on the issues of the
pending campaign iri Lincoln. At the
very beginning of Ills address Senator
Cummins paid a sincere tribute to the
candidacy of William Hayward for
congress in the following words:
“I want you to understand that no
word shall come from my lips that
does not come front my heart, and 1
find it a very keen pleasure to speak
for the republican party In the district
which has nominated for high office
that fine example of American young
manhood, that man of high ideals and j
of splendid service to his party, a man
who will confer honor upon any post- j
tion in which he may be placed, and I
can not begin without expressing the
hope that when the shades of Novem
ber 8th rhnll have fallen upon Nebras
ka it will lie discovered that my friend.
William Hayward, has been trium
phantly elected to the House of Rep
So spoke this leader of republican
progressives and the foundation of his
faith was laid deep in Hayward's rec
ord known to him.
Back in 1895 Hayward wrote and in
troduced the resolutions in the re
publican convention of Otoe, his home j
county, pledging the party to fight rail- ;
tvay discriminations and rebates, the j
free pass evil and (o support other re
form and progressive policies which
culminated in that splendid document
—the republican stale platform of
1909—every promise of which was re
deemed by the republican legldature
of 1907, as a result of which the peo
ple of the state gained the first sweep
ing and complete victories against the i
intrenched corporations of Nebraska,
placing on the statute books the con
stitutionally sound and unassailable
anti-pass Jaw, railway commission
law, two cent fare law, terminal taxa
tion law, express rate reduction law,
freight rate reduction law, direct pri
mary law and other progressive meas
ures of the utmost importance to the
people. These great reforms did not
come by chance. They came as the
results of the untiring efforts, the loy
al struggle for the people's rights,
made throughout Nebraska in the pre
vious years by William Hayward and
many other patriotic citizens of his
tjfpe. scattered in the towns and on
the farms and fields of the state. They
were and are the progressive repttt*
licans of Nebraska and among that
militant band which carried to vic
tory the banner of the people’s cause
no man's record is clearer or more
complete than William Hayward's.
On these established facts was
based the sincere approval of William
Hayward voiced so recently by the
eminent senator of our sister state of
Iowa. He knew also that Hayward's
progressive principles have not been
cast aside in this campaign to win
votes. That Hayward lias declared his
unalterable opposition to Cannon and
Cannonism in every form. That he
elands for a permanent tariff cororn'i
sion to gather exact facta to the end
of further revision in exact accord
with the promises of the republican
platform. Tlint lie favors the election
of senators by direct vote of the peo
ple having been, years ago. a delegate
appointed by Governor Sheldon to a
conference called by Governor Cum*
mins to further this movement.
That he opposses the ship subsidy,
favors lawful and effective control of
common carriers through increased
power granted the inter-state com
merce commission and continues to
support the Roosevelt policies of con
servation of natural resources. Wil
liam Hayward lias well earned the
title of a progressive and is entitled to
the auauort of ail progressives.

Hon. Jos. s. Bartley, V
State Treasurer, Lincoln, Neb.
Heferrlng to conversation with you X beg to sc^
that I would HKe to rcaV.e out new notee as follows:
One due n^ptember 1, $200 ,
one due October 1, 100 ,
One du“ November 1, 100
One due December 1, , 100
One due January 1, 1S<)6 500
The latter I might asK to have extended In part. The others’
would be paid at maturity with interest, will ofcourse pay the In
terest on present, note. t
Will this be satisfactory?
We reproduce above a copy of one of
the letters between Congressman
Hitchcock and Joseph Bartley, which
have caused such a big political sen
sation. Edgar Howard, one of the
most prominent democrats in the state
and editor of the Columbus Telegram,
produced photographic copies of a
number of letters which passed be
tween Mr. Hitchcock and Mr. Bartley,
while Bartley was still holding the of
fice of state treasurer, and relating to
money transac; ions. Bartley turned
out a defaulter to the extent of over
half a million dollars of state funds,
and served a tern: in state prison for
the offense. It 1 as always been a
mystery where the money w'ent. It
will be noticed that the letter is ad
dressed to Bartley as treasurer and
not as a banker or an individual, and
ip dated during the time that he was
treasurer of the s:ate. Other letters
and telegrams have been published,
which passed between Hitchcock and
Bartley at this time. While Hitch
cock claims that the money he bor
rowed of Bartley was Bartley’s private
funds, most of the newspapers of the
state have scoffed at this explanation.
SENATOR BURKET ENDORSED BY
The progressives among the repub
lican senators are coming to the aid
of Senator Burkett in his fight for re
election. Certainly thcs% senators are
in a position to ' now of the work
of our senior senator, and their judg
ment ought to be ; cepted by the hon
Last week S ; u* Bristow, the in
surgent Senator m Kansas, said of
“I should he vr: • much pleased to
render any ass' 1 > I could* to Sen
ator Burkett, but [ have spent so
much time out r Kansas already
that I cannot at oncer neglect the
Kansas campah n.
“While upon a : mber of votes Sen
ator Burkett and 1 i:id not agree, yet
he was of especial value to the pro- j
gressive cause, not only in the tariff |
fight in behalf of a genuine revision, j
but also in the tight for effective and
efficient legislation regulating the rail- j
roads, he rendered fine service.
“Wishing you success, I am
“Very truly yours,
“JOSF1PH L. BRISTOW."
And now comes Senator Beveridge,
the fighting insurgent senator from
Indiana, who last week wrote to the
chairman of the republican state com
mittee ns follows:
“I am very sure the people of Ne
braska will return Senator Burkett
to the senate. The great progressive
movement that is sweeping over this
country needs every man of progres
sive tendencies. Generally speaking,
the politicians now in control of the
Democratic party are not putting up
such men. The whole tendency of the
cabal of dominant politicians now in
control of that party is reactionary.
One haB only to consider the domi
nant influences in that party from
New York and Ohio to Texas and

2nd, 1910, ex-President Roosevelt said:
"Senator Burkett was one of the men
on. whom I especially relied when 1
was president, both while he was in
the House and in the Senate. 1 was
able to accomplish what I did in
Washington only because of the way

Iowa present, let me say, like Senator
What right has one to criticize the

of any possible assistance that I could

He should be returned; and I have
no doubt he will be returned.
“With kind regards,
“ALBERT ,J. BEVERIDGE."
Senator LaFollette’s Magazine, in
an article reviewing Senator Burkett's
“To get the truth about Senator
Burkett, you must get close. You must
study his record. When you do this,
you will see that he is a progressive
progressing. You will find that dur
ing the railroad legislation of 1906
he took strong strides in the people's
cause. You will find him forging
ahead with the merest handful of re
publican senators in support of the
amendment to provide for the physical
valuation of railroad property as a
basis for the regulations of railroad
rates, an amendment that was anathe
ma to the ‘system’ leaders of the Sen
ate. You will find him springing for
ward to the support of an amendment
to protect the railway employees and
to fix a just liability upon the rail
roads for their injuries incurred in
this hazardous service. You will find
him afterwards charging the ramparts
of the ‘system’ in behalf of the rail
road company employee's liability bill.
You will find him again voting consis
tently, roll-call after roll-call, while
‘system’ senators were ‘ducking’ into
the cloak rooms to avoid the vote, to
put to passage in the Fenate the hill
to promote the safety of the traveling
public and the employees of railways
by fixing a reasonable limitation on
the hours of railroad employees en
gaged in tlie operation of trains.”
In a speech a! 'Lincoln on last Thurs
day Senator Cummins of Iowa said:
"I am here, however, as most of you
know—my chief purpose at -least in
visiting Lincoln at this time, is to
contribute, if 1 can contribute with
the little influence that my words
may have, to the re-election of my as
sociate in the Senate of the United
States, and my friend, Elmer J. Bur
kett. I have known him well; I have
known him long.
* * ik
I say to liis fellowmen, and fellow
townsmen something that is altogeth
er unnecessary, that I believe, as hav
ing witnessed his work in two of the
severest struggles that have ever been
i seen in the Senate of the United
States, that Elmer Burkett does what
he believes to he right and votes as
his conscience tells him he ought to
vote and no more than that can be
asked of any man.
* * *
He has served you with not only
great fidelity, hut I think he has
served you with conspicuous ability,
and we who have ( I hope you will
not think me egotistical when I say
this) some definite idea of what should
I be done in the future, and intend to
accomplish it in every way that we
can, (honorably can) want Elmer
Burkett in the Senate instead of Gil
bert Hitchcock in the Senate, for the
reasons which I shall attempt in the
plainest and simplest way to state.”
Senator Cummins in his speech at
j Chicago *ays nothing is to be gained
j by trusting either house of Congress
| to the democrats. He has seen some
of them at close range.
When you think how dull business
j was when, the democratic party was
last in power, isn’t it a big risk to
try it again?
Ex-President Roosevelt is having
great sport chasing opponents out of
the jungles in darkest New York.
After next Tuesday the candidates’
troubles will be over, but will yours?
