Gov. Frnntz , of Oklahoma , who has
been In Washington for some time ,
left for home last night , and it is un
derstood ho will get busy at once In
effecting the necessary arrangements.
Will be Important.
The political Importance of a speech
by Mr. Taft as the keynote for the republican
publican campaign in Oklahoma is not
to be underestimated. It will have
the direct bearing on the republican
presidential politics for it will be gen
erally regarded as in a certain measure
the keynote of Secretary Ta'ft's candi
dacy for the presidency.
It is well within the range of possl
bllitles also , that Secretary Taft's
presence at the first republican state
convention in Oklahoma would lead to
Borne action by the convention virtual
ly , if not unequivocally , Indorsing him
for the presidential nomination.
A Delegation for Taft.
A tsrong Taft sentiment Is said to
exist In Oklahoma , and It has been re
ported that only the definite assurance
that the secretary will bo In the presl
dcntlal lists Is needed to start the ball
rolling and Insure a Taft delegation
from the new state to the next repub
lican antlonal convention.
$10,000,000 FOR REFORM.
Widow Sets Aside Sum for Founda-
tlon , With Novel Objects.
Albany , N. Y. , March 23. Mrs. Rus
sell Sage has set aside the sum of $10-
000,000 , to be known as the Sago foun
dation , and to be devoted to the Im
provement of social and living condi
tions In the United States.
A bill incorporating the foundation
was Introduced in the legislature. As
trustees of the foundation Mrs. Sage
has appointed Robert W. Do Forest ,
Cleveland H. Dodge , Daniel C. Oilman ,
John M. Glenn , Miss Helen Gould , Mrs.
William B. Rice , and Miss Louisa L.
The following statement by Mrs.
Sage concerning the foundation and its
objects was given out by Mrs. Sage :
"I have set aside $10,000,000 for the
endowment of this foundation . Its
object Is the improvement of social
and living1 conditions In the United
"The means to that end will include
research , publication , education , the
establishment and maintenance of
charitable and beneficial activities ,
agencies and institutions , and the aid
of any such activities , agencies , and
Institutions already established.
"It will be within the scope of the
foundation to Investigate and study
the causes of adverse social conditions ,
Including ignorance , poverty and vice ,
to suggest how these conditions can
be remedied or ameliorated , and to
put In operation any appropriate means
to that end.
"It will also be within the scope of
the foundation to establish any new
agency necessary to carry out any of
Its conclusions and equally to contrib
ute to the resources of any existing
agencies which are doing efficient and
satisfactory work , just as the present
general education. fund , organized to
promote higher education , is aiding
existing colleges and universities.
"Willie its scope Is broad , It should ,
preferably , not undertake to do within
that scope what Is now being done ,
and likely to be effectively done , by
other Individuals or by other agencies
with less resources. It will be its aim
to take up the larger and more diffi
cult problems and to take them up , so
far as possible , in such a manner as to
secure co-operation and aid in their
.Iv solution.
"In some instances it may wisely
Initiate movements with the expecta
tion of having them maintain themselves
selves until aided after once being
started. In other Instances , it may start
movements with the expectation ol
carrying them on Itself. The Income
will only be used for its charitable pur
poses because the foundation is to be
permanent and Its action continuous /
It may , however , make Investments
for social betterment which them'
Delves produce Income.
"While having Its headquarters In
New York City , where Mr. Sago and
I have lived and where social prob
lems are most pressing and compllcat
ed , partly by reason of its extent and
partly because it Is the port of entrj
for about a million immigrants a year
the foundation will bo national In Its
scope and In Its activities.
"I have sought to select as my trus
tees men and women who are familial
with social problems and who car
bring to their solution not only zea
and Interest , but experience and Judg-
. niont"

Judge Wcstervelt's Name Is On Ballot ,
Despite His Efforts to Escape , and
B. E. Bowden's Name Has Been Left
Off Dolan Is Republican.
[ From Wednesday's Dally. ]
When is a candidate not a candid
ate ? Simple folk will say that a man
becomes a genuine candidate when he
Is nominated for office by a regularly
constituted convention , caucus or com
mittee and ceases to bo a candidate
when ho declines the nomination. Not
so In Norfolk.
A Norfolk man Is running away from
an office with a salary attachment.
While other men are urging their
qualifications for office holding upon
the voters this man Is making strrn-
uous efforts to keep out of ofilce. The
man is Judge Ira G. Westervelt and
the office that ho is seeking to avoid
is that of police judge of Norfolk.
Apparently he Is making no material
Judge Westervelt Can't Quit.
. Judge Westervelt was renomlnated
over his protest by the democratic city
. convention. He thereupon declared
through the columns of The News
that he would not bo a candidate , that
he would not qualify if elected and
that he declined the nomination. The
democratic central committee met ,
held that no man could be put In of-
flee against his will and decided to
turn the judgeship over to Judge Else-
ley the republican nominee , by default.
Judge Westervelt rested in fancied
security until yesterday , when his men
tal equilibrium received an unmerited
jolt. His name had been printed on
the official ballot and to all intents
and purposes he was still a candidate.
Running But Not Running.
A very different situation confronts
another Norfolk man. This gentle
man had been nominated for office and
had entered Into the campaign with a
ifvim. . Just before the election he finds
that ns a matter of fact , lie Is not a
candidate at all at least his name Is
not on the ofllclal ballot. This man
is B. E. BoWden supposedly the re
publican candidate for city engineer.
Dolan Republican
The apearance of sample ballots In
the city clerk's office brings still an
other new fact to light touching the
candidates before the people. Pat
Dolan , the all-Fourth-ward candidate
for the council , is a republican. The
heated debates at the Junction may
now cease for the democratic label Is
not tagged on to Dolan on the official
ballot nnd Dolan will ride to victory
on the republican ticket. The demo
cratic endorsement of Dolan though
loud nnd Joyous never marched Into
the city clerk's office In the required
- legal form.
Ballot According to Law.
The appearance of the sample bal
f lots yesterday aroused some interest
ing political comment. City Clerk
Hulff states that ho followed the law
In the matter and that the ballot repre-
sonts the sum total of the official com
. munlcatlons that reached him on the
subject. Members of the republican
city central committee , when they
learned that Mr. Bowden's name had
bnot been presented in regular form to
* the city clerk , wore anxious to take
any possible steps to correct the mat-
tor. Judge Wcstcrvelt ! sns determln-
' ed as over to get off the ticket accordIng -
Ing to his published statement. And
the Fourth ward democrats , for the
honor of their party , ought to wan
to have their brand placed after the
good sounding name of Dolan.
Editor of Sun-Review of Fairfax , 8. D. ,

and Was Sued for Llbol Attorneys'
Error Lets Client Go to Jail ,
Fairfax , S. D. , March 20. Special to
The News : W. 1. Korlright , editor of

Sheriff Morrlssey , by order of the
court. He was placed there on ac
count of a default judgment ,
Last fall Kortrlght opposed Huston

for sheriff and states attorney and
they sued him for libel. Through

$2 per day for ton days , Kortrlght la

Brown's In Town at Fairfax , Locked
Behind the Bars.
Fairfax , S. D. , March 2i. ( Special
o The News : A man by the name of
Jrown Is In the county jail hero
charged with forgery. Some time ago
10 negotiated u loan from Orion Por-
or , real estate man , for $1,100 on a
quarter section of land but by accident
ast week Mr. Porter , it Is alleged ,
ouml out that he was not the man
, vho owned the land hut that ho had
'orged the other man's name to the
mpers , and that Brown still lived on
ho land. Ho had him arrested. $50C
of the money was loft in the Gregory
onnty State bank and about $10C
nero have becc-n recovered.
The original owner lives somewhere
n Illinois. The funniest part of It is
hat Brown did not try to get out of
, ho country but left part of the money
n the bank and had bought some
lorses and other things and lived on
.he land which he had rented.
Drummers Wouldn't Live Here Be
cause of Muddy Streets.
A big , smooth-faced , good natural
ooklng commercial drummer , sat in
seat In the smoking car of the Bone
steel-Omaha passenger train whlcli
passed through Norfolk Sunday morn
Ing. At Stanton another drummer
joarded the train.
"Don't you live at Norfolk ? " asked
the first.
"I should say not ! " declared the new
arrival. "I wouldn't live in that burg
if you would give me n house am
lot. "
"Nor I , " agreed the first passenger
"I never did like the town. I rather
live at any town on the line. "
"What's the matter with Norfolk ? '
was asked by a passenger across the
aisle , who may have been from Nor
"What isn't ? " they broke in , li
concert. "It's a mudhole. Look at
that main street. It's a slough. "
"But that street will be paved be
fore next October , " was argued.
"That won't help the residence
part. "
"But the residence part doesn't ge
muddy to speak of , " argued the Nor
folk citizen.
"Oh , " said the Council Bluffs drum
mer. "What do you call that street
from Norfolk down to the Junction' '
Doesn't that get muddy ? "
"Yes , and then they never do any
thing there. They're always talking
about what they Intend to do , but they
don't do it. " This from the Fremont
traveler. "Every time Fremont takes
a step ahead Norfolk gets greon-eye <
but doesn't do anything to pro
gross. "
"What would you call a pleasan
town to live In ? " was asked.
"Some place where there's some
thing to do , " said Council Bluffs. "Up
in Norfolk you can sit around and
gossip , or go to a medicine show In
the little dump of an opera house
with the same scenery that's beet
there for the past fifteen years. "
"Yes , Fremont has twlco as mucl
business , " broke In the Fremonter
"Business is what makes a town wortl
living in. There's more excltemen
In Fremont more business done. "
"And then the only live part of the
town Is away all the week the travel
Ing men , " said Council Bluffs. "How
many traveling men are there in Nor
folk 100 ? "
"Easily , " replied the Norfolk citizen
"No , not near , " broke In Fremont
I'm secretary of the U. C. T. lodge
at Fremont and I know that when we
come to talking about now candidate
In Norfolk , even Charlie Green ant
he's about as big a booster for Nor
folk as I know , always talking for th
town ho has to admit there are only
about sixty. "
And so they argued and dlscusse
and cussed Norfolk. They finally nd
mltted that Norfolk has a theater si
perlor to that at Fremont , which I
berne out by theatrical companies
they finally admitted that Norfolk 1
getting high grade shows that Fremon
cannot get. They finally ndmltte
tlat ( Norfolk has railroad feature
that Fremont would llko. They ad
mlttod In the end that Norfolk has

iCtlon of Attorney Following Death
of Patient at Norfolk Hospital , Re
sults In Investigation Into Chndron
Lawyer's Methods.
Lincoln , Nob. , March 2.1. Special to
'ho News : Disbarment proceedings
onfront Captain Allen G. FlHhcr of
Ihtulron , one of the prominent lawyers
f Nebraska. The claims committee
) f the house of representatives do-
lares that Fisher's conduct bus been
rrogulnr , Illegal and unprofessional In
he case of the claim of the helrH of
leriimn Geode against the state of
Nebraska. A ripple of amn/.emont
swept over the house thin morning on
ho reading of the report of the claims
committee by Chairman J. W. Arm-
The report recommending that Cap
aln FlHhor of Chadron he disbarred
vas unanimously adopted today.
Man Died In Norfolk.
The committee lias been invcstlgat
ng the Geode case for some time , but
.he result seems to be a surprise to
all concerned. The report Is conclud
ed with the recommendation that tlui
attorney general be Instructed to In
stitute Immediately disbarment pro
ceedings against Captain Fisher. On
febrnnry 2.1 , 1809 , Herman Geode of
Sioux county died Intestate at the bos-
) Ital for the insane at Norfolk , Neb
fie was the owner of a section of land
n Sioux county , and his only heirs
were a brother and sister In Prussia
he sister living at Blelelleld , Westpha
la , Prussia , and the brother at Huron
Westphalia. Herman Kaup of West
Point , Neb. , was appointed by these
lelrs as their attorney to settle the
estate and send the proceeds to them
Mr. Kaup , In the execution of the
trust , appointed Captain Fisher ns his
attorney to settle the estate in Sioux
county , under the agreement that Fish
er was to receive all funds realized in
excess of $1,000.
The Gorman heirs were prohibited
jy the laws of Nebraska from Inherit
Ing the property , but the provisions
of a treaty between America and Germany
many gave them the right to sell the
and and appropriate the proceeds
The county attorney of Sioux county
Instituted proceedings praying for
[ lecree escheating the land to the state
of Nebraska , and In so doing the logls
latlve committee declares Its belief
that the county attorney acted in vlo-
atlon of treaty rights. Captain Fish
er , in the answer which ho filed for
.he heirs , joined with the county at
torney in asking the escheatal of the
land to the state. The district court
handed down the decree of escheatal
October 5,1899. A week later the land
was appraised fit $1,500 , according to
the testimony of the appraisers , who
were called before the committee.
Later the figure 1 was feloniously in
serted before the figure 6 , thus making
the appraised value $11,500. In 1901
Fisher , for the Geode heirs , filed a
claim for $9,000 for the value of this
land which had escheated to the state.
The legislature rejected this claim.
When Captain Fisher filed the claim
for the Geode heirs with the state
auditor In February , 1903 , it was for
$11,500. This claim was also rejected
by the legislature of 1903.
Fisher Gets Land.
In 1900 Captain Fisher offered to buy
for $950 the Sioux county land and the
claim of the German heirs against the
state. The brother and sister in Prus
sia were tired of waiting for the pay
ment of their inheritance , so they ex
ecuted a deed and sent It to the First
National bank of Chndron to be deliv
ered to Fisher upon the receipt of
$950. On November 23 , 190C , this deed
was received by the Chadron bank ,
and It remained there until March 3 ,
1907 , when Mr. Fisher paid the $950
and took the deed. This was done on
Sunday and early the next morning he
garnlsheed the money and caused It
to be retained In the bank at the suit
of his wife. When the cashier of the
bank was called before the legislative
committee this garnishment was re
leased. Mr. Fisher , while on the wit
ness stand , declared that he supposed
this money had been sent to the Ger
man heirs.
This year Herman Kaup of West
Point , becoming suspicious of Fisher's
long delay and learning of the claim
presented for $11COO , applied himself
in behalf of the heirs to the legisla
ture for the $1,500 appraised valuation
of the escheated lands. In this way
the matter came before the claims
committee. The claim of Kaup has
been rejected on the opinion of Attor -
ney General W. T. Thompson that the
decree of cschcntnl of the district
court of Sioux county was void be
cause of its violation of the treaty
rights of the German heirs. The heirs
will receive their $950.and Captain
Fisher has title to the land.
