To all voters of the Fourteenth
Senatorial district of Nebraska :
Having been nominated by the
Democratic and People's Indepen
dent Parties for the honorable po
sition of State Senator for the
Fourteenth district of Nebraska ,
and bellieving that the voters ef
this district should know before
election where their candidate
stands upon the most important
isf-ues involved in this campaign ,
I submit the following for your
1. I am in favor of a law that will
guarantee bank deposits , for the
absolute security of the people's
money , to prvent panics and
promote prosperity , and available
to national as well as state banks
of this state wishing to take advan
tage of the same.
2. lam in favor of the election of
precinct or township assessors by
the direct vote of the people in the
precincts or townships in which
3. I am against what I term the
unjust action of the state board in
arbitrarily raising the valuation as
returned by the local and county
tt. I believe in a state experi
mental farm and that it should be
located in the northwestern part of
the state , as mentioned in the
5. T favor a wide open primary
election , where every voter will
have an opportunity of voting a
secret ballot and for wh m he
6. From a national standpoint , I
am in favor of every plank in
the Democratic platform that was
adopted by the Democrat party at
its last national convention held in
Denver , Colorado , in July , 190S.
Having served in the last legis
lature as the representative from
the Fiftv-third district , which is
accredited with being the most pro
gressive legislature that has as
sembled in Nebraska for the last
fourteen years , I believe that I am
in a better position to know what
the people of my part of the state
want and expect from their mem
ber if elected to the office.
Respectfully , 2
GEO. M. ADAMS.
WHAT I STAND FOR.
Believing that the voters of the
sixth Congressional District have
a right to know where their candi
date stands on the issues involved
in the election , and believing that
andidates before election should
state publicly and unequivocally
what they are in favor of , and
what they will undertake to do if
elected , I hereby pledge myself as
1. I will support any and all
measures which will bring about
the election of United States sena
tors by dire.ct vote of the people.
2. I will support a law making
it compulsory upon all political
parties to publish a full and com
plete statement of campaign con
tributions before election.
3. I will favor a law providing
that in all cases of indirect con
tempt of court , the party so ac-
used shall be tried by a jury , the
same as any other person accused
4. I will favor a reduction of
ihe present tariff to an extent that
foreign competition will com
pel American manufacturers to
sell their products to American
consumers as cheaply as they sell
them to consumers in any foreign
country ; and that all agricultural
machinery , fencing , building ma-
: erials , and all .household utensils
je placed on th'e free list.
5. I will favor an amendment
to the so called railroad rate bill ,
now in force , which will provide
that pending an appeal to the fed
eral courts , the order of the inter
state commerce commission ,
whether making a new rate , or
which is made for the purpose of
preventing an existing discrimina
tion , shall be and remain in force
pendiag the appeal in the federal
6. I shall favor an amendment
to the federal constitution provid
ing for an inheritance and income
7. T shall favor an amendment
to the present homestead law , now
in force and applicable to this dis
trict , which will give the home
steader the same rights of com
mutation , and making linal proof ,
as are enjoyed in other localities
by homesteaders under the gener-

0. 1 shall devote all of my time ,
energy , and what ability I possess ,

people of this district , and to guard

to throttle legislation which is de
