The political Importance of a speech by Mr. Taft as the keynote for the republican publican campaign in Oklahoma is not to be underestimated.

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. ychuylor. 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 States. "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 ig selves until aided after once being started. In other Instances , it may start rtf 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" Robert W.

THE BALLOT GIVES SURPRISES 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 progress. 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. W. I. KORTRIGHT OF FAIRFAX IS IMPRISONED.

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.

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. THEY CRITICISED NORFOLK. 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 folk. "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 delightful class of people for nolgl bors and that Norfolk business Instltu ons rank well.

N CASE BEGUN IN NORFOLK 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- strong. 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. MEASURE GOES THROUGH UY A VOTE OF 2-1 TO 0.
