WITHIN A RADIUS OF 100 MILES
ONLY ONE FROM ASSOCIATION
The Only Thief Who Ventured to
Molest a Stable of a Member of the
North Nebraska Protective Associa
tion , Is in the Penitentiary.
Twenty-three horses have been
stolen within a radius of 100 miles of
Norfolk during the past month. Only
one of these was stolen from a mem
ber of the North Nebraska Live Stock
Protective association. That thief ,
within eight days after the theft , was
In the state penitentiary commencing
'i seven-year sentence.
This fact was developed at a meetIng -
Ing which was held In Norfolk yester
day by the executive committee of the
association. The executive committee
levied an assessment of ? 1 with which
to provide sufficient funds to pay the

"Blx" After Latta.
Blxby , the genial poet-phllosupuer of
Lincoln , who supported Edgar Hi > 0-
ard in the Columbus editor's effort to
land the Democratic nomination from
the Third district , thus reviews the
result in the Lincoln Journal :
Jim Lattn now goes Into the politi
cal campaign as the democratic nomi
nee for congressman In the bloody
Third , handicapped by a legislative
record the miserable particulars of
which were published to the world by
a leading member of his own party.
When wicked men fall out and scrap ,
According to my views ,
Then Is the time the honest chap
Goes up and gets his dews.
Jim Latta sent to legislate
For you as well as me ,
Refused to try to save the state
To any great degree.
That man was never for the right ;
His vote. I will be blest ,
Shows It was In his heart to smite
The poor and the oppressed.
To help the rich he thought no sin ,
He'd give the poor no show ;
He stood to help the railroads skin
The fellow with the hoe.
Child labor , though H crush and kill ,
Was one of his chief joys ;
He cast his vote against the bill
To save the little boys.
Most every real reform he fought
With unaccustomed zeal ;
The pure food measure made him
The sawdust in his meal.
The vile saltpeter In his ham ,
Tobacco in his booze ;
Jim Latta didn't glveadam ,
Fact Is he didn't choose
To give protection to the weak
Against the vile and strong ;
He never raised his voice to speak
Against a concrete wrong.
With such a record , tell me true ,
That no man can explain ,
How can Jim Latta worry through
And win in this campaign ?
He won , and yet his case is lost ,
It may well be Inferred ,
He'll run against a killing frost
Upon November third.
Anarchy in Boy Land.
Newman Grove Reporter : Last
spring Johnnie , Louie and Edwin Pet
erson , in Old Town , started In to raise
a patch of watermelons , expecting to
sell them for money for their own
us-o. Gunder Thompson furnished the
land which the hoys divided Into three
small patches , each one attending to
hit , own field. They worked llko
beavers through the sprint ; am
summer and raised a splendh
crop. . They were just about
ready for market and the boys
wore saving the bis : ones until their
father came home because they wanted
od to show them to him. Monday
morning they went out to look a
thoni and some thieves had been there
talu-n away the ripe melons and de
stroyed the rest. It was the same
kind of a calamity that comes to a
man when he stands In his door and
In ten minutes , sees his year's crop o
oats , corn and wheat pounded Into the
earth by hail. And one of these was
a boy of six. His face was white
when he went to the house and toh
his mother of his loss. If the thieves
had broken Into either bank and stolen
a thousand dollars the loss would have
been relatively less.

N A SPECTACULAR DIAMOND DIS
PLAY SCORE IS CLOSE.
In a game replete with spectacular
ilnys and genuine enthusiasm ills-
ilayed by both players nnd spectators
he Norfolk Elks trimmed the United
Commercial Travelers Saturday after-
loon by a score of 0 to 8 , but not until
he U. C. T. team came up from bo-
ilnd In the ninth with only a single
leeded to tie up the game.
In that Inning after White had
singled over second base Well drove
mother hit between first nnd second.
'Red" Rickers was passed to first on
our wide balls and then Bccls lifted
a high fly to left which Gutzmer lost In
he sun , White and Well scoring.
llckers scored when Sarbach hit a
slow grounder to first base. With
Jeels on third and two out Hancock
aimed and the Elks breathed a sigh
Whoever thinks that the Elks and
he U. C. T. teams are not capable of
lolng wonderful stunts on the ball
leld should have attended the game
Saturday. Of all the circus-like per-
ormances acted out on the ball dla-
nond Ross TlndalTs play was the
most exciting. Logan had run out
nto center field to capture a hlfjh 11 y
ind the sphere bounced out of his
muds when Tlndall leaped forward
and caught the ball before It touched
he ground. Because It was such an
inusual play , the player received a
generaus round of applause.
That was not the only feature of
his exciting contest. Both pitchers
lid well and pulled themselves out of
langer by striking out batsmen. Lo
gan leaped high for a throw the
catcher made and retired a runner ,
completing a good play. The double
play the Elks made Infield was on the
sensational order and Lowery for the
IT. C. T. team made a good stop and
throw to first on a ball which car-
romed off the pitcher's hands.
The way Mapes , Beels , Faucett and
Sarbach the heavyweights of the
squad hustled around on the bases and
drove the ball out of the lot was a
revelation to the fans. The hot wea
ther did not affect them much and
they played like veterans.
Well and Gettlnger stole homo from
third in the fourth and seventh in
nings respectfully. The feats of dar
ing base running placed the U. C. T.
team In the race. Gettingcr was
slightly injured when he stole homo
and Sarbach was substituted. The
latter went to first and Faucett be
hind the bat.
Burton was hit In the face by a hall
thrown by the pitcher to third as he
was sliding into the base In the sixth
and Logan took his place as runner.
He was able to play throughout the
A strange play happened In the fifth
Inning. With two on bases and one
out Well knocked a short Infield fly
which the pitcher dropped. The two
runners were easily thrown out as
they were trying to reach second and
third. They were not compelled to
run as they Imagined they were and
the batter was out oven though the
hall was dropped.

Story of the First Day.
The Rosebud drawing was held in
Chamberlain , S. D. The drawing
opened July 28 , 1901. The scone was
picturesque. It was at 9:30 : that Com
missioner Richards approached the

stantly hats came off and silence en
sued. Richards removed his broad
brimmed Panama and read the rules
for the drawing. Eight bays were
selected to draw , four each day
"Lucky" Somers was the first. At
exactly 10 o'clock the churn was
filled and given a great whirl.
"They're off , " yelled the crowd and
a cheer arose. "Lucky" Somors
reached In for the first name. A
cheer greeted him. A moment latoi
he handed the envelope to Judge
Wakely , who opened with trembling
fingers. Ho handed It to Commissioner
Richards who examined the slip dell

ELIHU ROOTS SPEECH
Speaks Little of Hughes , Mostly of
Roosevelt Hughes In Danger.
Saratoga , N. Y. , Sept. 14. The In-
Mentions this afternoon were that
Governor Hughes would be renoniln-
ited by the Republican state convon-
Ion which was called to order at 3
I'clock this afternoon , although there
vere enough delegates opposed to
lughes to defeat him on the first bal
ot , should they agree on any one can-
The state Republican boshes had
ailed to agree upon any one man ,
lowever , up to a short time before the
Ellhn Root shortly after noon today
leclared that as presiding officer he
votild not allow his own name to be
iresented to the convention.
In addressing the convention , Mr.
Root devoted little time to the admin-
stratlon of Governor Hughes , discus
sing almost entirely the national situ
ation , paying his respects to Bryan
and his policies and Insisting that the
nomination to bo made should bo
made "in such a way that the Empire
state shall surely cast her electoral
vote for the Republican candidate for
president of the United States. "
After a lengthy review of the Roosevelt
velt administration and of the Bryan
claim to bo regarded as the heir to
Roosevelt's policies Mr. Root took up
the Democratic slogan. "Shall the people
ple rule ? " with reference to congress.
He said :
"The real trouble Is that the Demo
crats in the house of representatives
are a minority and cannot have their
own way because they arc a minority.
The real Democratic grievance is not
that the majority does not rule , but
that It does rule.
"Consideration of the paramount Is
sue now proposed by the Democracy
forces the conclusion that the drafts
men of the Democratic platform are
to be accquitted of the offense of insult
ing the Intelligence of the American
people by a piece of cheap buncombe ,
only because they have fallen Into the
confusion which besot the throe tail
ors of Tooloy street , who began their
proclamation , 'We , the people of Eng
land , ' and that they think the people
do not rule because they do not them
selves rule. "
After declaring that President
Roosevelt might have boon ronomin
ated "by rising his finger" and that
his advocacy of Taft was 'a renuncia
tion of power exceptional In history , '
Mr. Root returned again to the assault
on Bryan ,
"It was skilfull , " he declared , "of
Mr. Bryan to say that he Is bound by
the omission of the Democratic plat
form as well as by what it contains ;
but who dictated the omissions as wol
as the platform ? Can an omission oi
today wipe out public utterances of
the past and remove them from memory
ory as a basis of judgment upon a
public man ? The same eloquent voice
which now with so much confidence
Is tolling how the government
ought to be conducted was heard In
Mr. Bryan's candidacy of 1890 urging
upon the American people as a panacea
coa for all evils the free and unlimited
coinage of silver at a ratio of 1C to 1
Was he right then ? Was his judg
ment sound then ?
"Now Mr. Bryan proposes that
under supervision of the national gov
eminent everybody shall provide for
