Doctor Pinned Under an Auto.
Lindsay , Neb. , July 1C. Special to
The News : Dr. D. G. Walker sustain-
id a compound Potts fracture of the
ight leg in an automobile accident
early yesterday morning while return-
ng from the firemen's tournament at
N'ewman's Grove. It seems that La\ie- \
sen and Walker started from the
rove and in the heavy fog , lost
sense of direction and were going
south Instead of east. At a point
about a mile before the accident oc-
urred Lauesen stepped out to crank
the machine and after cranking it ,
Dr. Walker in a spirit of mischief ,
started without him and Lauesen
said he was clearing the fog some by
lis remarks , but when about a mile
'urther on ho run across Walker pin-
oned under his car which had up
set , with his leg splintered and badly
bleeding and the hot water from the
caking radiator scalding him.
Ho thought later he was very fortu
nate. He roused some of the farm-
rs after walking about two miles In
a fog and summoned a physician from
Newman's Grove. After about three
; iours under the car he was taken to
Newman's Grove where he Is now
The machine sustained but very lit
tle damage , tipping over on the side

Will His Present Attitude Lead Him
to Defeat ? Splits His Party.
Lincoln , July 1C. William J. Bry
an has entered upon the most mo-
mentous' tight of his career In so far
as Nebraska politics Is concerned , and
its result will determine to a great
extent his standing in the party at
large. He has started to place n
county option plank In the democratic
state platform over the objections of
his most ardent supporters , and ad
visers and closest friends. At the
Lancaster county democratic conven
tion he drew the line "For county op
tion ; Against county option. " "Those
who will follow me come on. " he
said , "We are going. Those vho
will not follow me stay at home. "
Immediately after ho had made this
dramatic statement the convention
adopted the platform he wrote In
structlng the fifty-seven delegates to
the state convention to vote for the
endorsement of county option In the
party platform. Among those who op
posed him were P. L. Hall n life-long
democrat and friend who Is now the
chairman of the national committee ;
J. 11. Harlry , one of bin best support-
era ; P. W. Brown , an intimate , who
i represented him on the resolutions
' .committee of the national convention.
In fact practically all of the lighting
democrats of Lancaster county , or at
least those who have held up his
hands In that county and In the state
many long years.
H ? accused the brewers of having
caused his defeat for president and
he Insisted that had It not been for
republicans who have state pride and
thus voted for him. they would have
carried Nebraska against him. Ho
iccused the Omaha World-Herald of
jelng untruthful In this light and of
icing unfair to Its democratic read
ers. To offset the influence of the
lemocratlc organ and to got the
truth before the people , Mr. Bryan
started out Monday to make speeches
n various parts of the state. He will
ell his hearers that the brewers had
caused his defeat for the presidency
i mi that they caused Missouri to cast
ts vote for the republican candidate
for president.
Five Boys Bound Over.
With the exception of Wallace Dor-
wy. live of the boy bandits were
[ indeed into carriages Friday evening
ind taken to the Madison Jail to await
their trial In the district court. Dor-
sey's case was continued thirty days
and he was released on a $200 bond.
Dorsey , it is said , is the only boy of
: he MX who has not practically ad
mitted his guilt. Those taken to Mad-
son Friday evening by Constable
; ' "lynn and Special Officer Wheeler
were : Emery Honney , Stanley Ainme-
.Ion. William Slioregge. Kenneth Rich-
irdson and Chester Iloush , the latter
to be placed In safe keeping to await
from the Dawes county officials.
Bonney , Ammedon and Schoregge
pleaded guilty Thursday evening , but
lUehardson and Iloush did not get
heir hearing until Thursday evening ,
when they were bound over to the dis
trict court by Justice Elseley. These
two boys did not plead guilty at the
learing Friday , but the ollicors say
they admitted their guilt.
Before taking their prisoners to
Madison , the ofllcers took the youths
to a barber shop , where they were
given a bath.
He Inspected Cement Streets. '
City Engineer H. II. Tracy returned
Friday evening from a tour of concrete
paving inspection at Sioux City , Ma
son City , Fort Dodge and LeMars , la. ;
Omaha , Chicago and' Gary , Ind. Al
though the engineer made a Hying
trip , his report to the council Monday
night will , be as complete as was re
quired of that body. Mr. Tracy , al
though in favor of brick , has not let
his personal ideas as to paving Influ
ence him on his inspection trip , and
says he saw some very good samples
of concrete paving.
At Sioux City he says there are no
streets paved with conciete , but many
alleys were paved with this material.
Sioux City's concrete paving is the
worst sample of cement paving he saw
on his trip. Fort Dodge is now put
ting in 50,000 square yards of concrete
paving , he says. The price they pay
for it is $1.61. per square yard. At
Gary , Ind. , many streets , including the
main street , is paved with concrete
and looks very good , he says. In Chicago
cage he also saw some good concrete
Mr. Tracy is now hard at work pre
paring an estimate for the paving of
Norfolk avenue with concrete. This
estimate will be handed to the council
at their meeting Monday night. The
advertising for bids can bo started im
mediately after Monday night's meet
ing , says the city engineer , if the
council desires.
Tariff Critics Weak Case.
Sioux City Journal : When the last
Insurgent republican convention has
been held and there probably will
not be very many of them it will be
found that not a single flat-footed de
mand has been made for the immedi
ate revision of the Payne tariff law.
It will be found , however , that there
are several demands for a permanent
tariff commission. The situation will
illustrate the Intrinsic weakness of
the case against the present law.
The present schedules can be criti
cised , of course. It can be said with
some posltiveness that certain sched
ules ought to be lower. Hut no critic
will undertake to say just what the
duties ought to be. If the critics
should undertake to suggest new du
ties no two of them would agree. In
fact , most of the critics are willing to
admit that if President Taft should
call a special session of congress In
September to revise the tariff It could
not accomplish a more accurately
scientific revision than was made at
the late extra session. Some of the
most distinguished insurgents in the
late tariff fight are already on record
to this effect. This explains why the
demand for a "permanent" tariff com
mission takes the place of a demand
for immediate further revision. It is
admitted there no good can come
from further monkeying with the
schedules until after a commission has
provided a foundation of fact upon
which scientific revision can ho built.
Proscription In Nebraska.
St. Louis Globe-Democrat : "An all-
garchy based on beer , " is what Bryan
calls the democratic state of Nebras
ka. What do his friends , Governor
Shallenberger and Congressman
Hitchcock , say about this ? Or has
Bryan cast them out , too , as he did
the democratic state senators several
days ago ?
Republicans of That County Turn
Down Mr. Bryan's Pet Issue.
Stanton , Neb. , July 18. Special to
The News : The republicans of Stun-
ton county met in mass convention
here. W. W. Young was elected chair
man and James E. Peters secietary. |
The following delegates were chosen1
( o attend the xtato convention to beheld
held at Lincoln'July 1C , viz : Andiew
Spence , Louis Smlthberger , W. W.
Young , Krvln Nye , G. A. Maylleld.
The following resolutions were
adopted :
We , the republicans of Stanton
county , In convention srthembled
pledge anew our allegiance to those
fundamental and historical doctrines
of republicanism , which spread our
country's statute books and carried
Into effect by wise admlnistiators
have promoted the welfare of our
common country and conserved the
true Interests of our common citizen
Wo further endorse and commend
the wise , patient , vigorous and vigi
lant administration of the president
of the United States William Howard
Taft and re-assert our confidence In
his courage , his statesmanship , and
his fidelity to the true Interest of the
common people.
Wo point with pride to the record
of wise , just , and equitable laws , en
acted by the present congress of the
United States ; to the platform pledges
of our party which have been so
largely redeemed and kept , and es
pecially do we commend and en
dorse the work of our senators from
Nebraska , Hon. Norrls Brown and
Hon. Elmer J. Bnrkett , both In the
field of general legislation and In
their efficient and faithful representa
tion of the Interest of Nebraska.
The county option question came
up and was decided without debate.
A motion was made that the delegates
be Instructed to support the Incorpora
tion of n county option plank in the
state platform. A motion was prompt
ly made and seconded that this mo
tion be "tabled. " This motion pre
The following resolution was then
placed before the convention :
"Resolved , That the delegates from
Stanton county to the state conven
tion In Lincoln , July 2C , be Instructed
to use their best efforts to prevent
the Incorporation of a county option
plank in the republican state plat
form. "
With commendable promptness a
county optlonist moved that this reso
lution be "tabled. " This motion , how
ever , was defeated. The principal mo
tion was then adopted by a large ma
jority. Stanton county will thus be
a unit against the county option
The county comention then select
ed the county central committee and
elected the following officers of the
same : Chairman , Louis Smithbcrgor ;
secretary , James E. Peters , and treas
urer. George A. Eberly.
Pierce County Republicans Don't
Touch County Option.
Pierce. Neb. , July IS. Special to
The News : At the Pierce county re
publican convention , held in this city
Saturday , the following delegates were
selected to the state convention at
Lincoln : Thomas Chilvers , O. S.
Spillmoii , August Schwichtenberg , D.
L. Crellin , A. G. Cole , Elmer Record
and Rev. Mr. Kelley. County Attor
ney Charles Stewart was selected as
chairman of the convention and A. G.
Cole as secretary.
The resolutions as read by Chair
man Brando of the resolutions com
mittee endorsed the administration of
President Taft as being able and wise
and expressed a belief that his admin
istration would go down In history as
one that was strong and courageous
as those of his illustrious predecessors
sors , William McKinley and Theodora
The record of the late republican
congress was heartily endorsed in that
it enacted more progressive and con
structive legislation than any previous
congress. '
Referring to the services of our sen
ators the resolutions said : "We hear
tily endorse the records made in con
gress by our United States senators ,
Elmer J. Burkett and Norris Brown ,
and heartily commend and express our
thorough appreciation of their work
and official conduct in upholding the
hands of our president in securing the
passage of the pledges made in the na
tional republican platform at Cht
cago. "
The following slap was directed at
Congressman "Check-Book" Latta :
"We denounce the action of Congress
man Latta of this congressional dis.
trlct in voting against the postal sav >
Ings bank bill. And in voting against
his own party's substitute for the bill ,
which was offered by the democrats
in congress , thereby repudiating the
national democratic platform on which
he was elected in 1908 ana proving a
traitor thereto. "
The redlstrictlng of the state for
legislative purposes by the next legls
lature was demanded. The resolu
tlons were adopted without a dissent
ing vote.
The local option question was not
mentioned in the convention at any
period of the session , though some of
the delegates from the precincts ol
Plum Grove and Dry Creek , it was
said , had come down with the Inten
tion of forcing a county option plank
In the resolutions. The majority of
republicans of Pierce county do not
believe In being made a catspaw to
the whims and vagaries of Mr. Bryan
In the scrap he has started In his own
party they believe it good politics to
climb a good high tree and from a
safe position enjoy the fight of the
democratic Kilkenny cats in the ranks
of the enemy.
Looks as If It Would Be Terminus for
Two Railroads Soon.
Carter , S. D. , July 18. Special to
The News : From daylight until dark
you can hear the ring of hammers In
Carter , for building IB going on that
keeps every carpenter busy. One en
crgctlc fellow is even building bis own
home nt night by lantern light.
[ | Where four months ago was nothing
hut prairie and one little building , to
day stand two-story buildings and
plate glass fronts that would credit n
city of lO.omi and are a wonder , as
Carter Is "ahead of the railroad. "
I'lTinnncney of construction Is noticeable -
able from the first , for the people ap
preciate that with two or more rail
roads and undoubtedly the terminus
of both for some time , combined with
the throwing open of Melletto and
Ilennett counties to homestead right ,
Carter is the key city to the whole of
the northwest.
Chicago and Northwestern railway
graders are throwing dirt as fast as
losstble between Dallas and Carter
ind at the rate they are moving , the
grade will bo Into Jordan and Carter
early this fall. Five outfits are at
work and are hiring all the local
teams possible. From the south a
crew of surveyors , followed by an en
gineering outfit which Is cross-section-
ng , and those followed by a right-of-
way agent who Is paying real vioney
for right-of-way. Is making rapid prog-
ess. It is assumed that these railroad
nen represent the B. & M. The sur
vey and cross-sectioning which they
lave done runs across the southwest
orner of Carter and about 300 feet
east of the site chosen by the Chicago
t Northwestern for their depot
Rumor Is prevalent , and based upon
good authority , that the survey which
was run last year across the north
mlf of Tripp county through the town-
bite of Carter and headed southwest
o Alliance. Nob. , was conducted by
he Great Northern , which corpora-
ion is endeavoring to secure a
lirongh line from Dnluth , Minneapolis
ind St. Paul to the coast and by fol-
owing the survey as their engineers
napped out last year , this can easily
) o accomplished. The first two In
stances are realities and the Great
Northern's survey Is more than prob
With such conditions existing , no
wonder Carter is on the jump to pro-
wre Itself to care for the thousands
of people who are contemplating n
nove to Trlpp county and the west.
Dallas experienced the trials of car-
ng for over a hundred thousand people
ple In the three weeks during the
opening of Tripp county. Melletto and
Bennett counties comprise a much
greater area and Carter , being the
gateway to tills gardenspot of home
stead land , will experience a rush of
three times as many people , inasmuch
is from Carter the people can , with
greater case and less expense , EO to
ho land in question. Carter is the
most accessible railroad point for the
farmers and residents of all that ter
ritory and its growth will be very
rapid and much more marvelous than
the development of its sister city ,
Crystal Lake to Have An Amusement
Sioux City , la. , July IS. Special to
The News : Assurance of the comple
tion of elaborate plans for a summer
resort at Crystal lake , Neb. , which
will rival any amusement place in the
cities of the middle west was given
out by Riley Howard of Orchard , Neb. ,
who recently obtained the controlling
interest in the Sioux City , Crystal
Lake and Homer railroad. The build
ing of the amusement park and resort
will constitute an outlay of $100,000.
The promoters assert that It will be
completed by next June. A contract
with the Combination Bridge com
pany , which was closed yesterday ,
gives the railroad company the use of
that structure for thirty years and as
sures good transportation facilities be
tween Sioux City and the park.
It Will be Fired at Chamberlain Saturday -
urday by C. L. Wood.
Vermillion , S. D. , July IS. The
opening gun of the democratic cam
paign will be fired in Chamberlain
Saturday evening when Chauncey L.
Wood , democratic candidate for gov
ernor , will speak at a big democratic
get-together meeting.
Chairman R. F. Lyons returned to
his home today from a scouting trip ,
and ho Is very favorably impressed
with conditions in South Dakota polit
ically. He said he found considerable
dissatisfaction with the manipulation
of affairs by the republican leaders ,
and believes that the rank and file of
the party are ready for n change.
The democrats are hopeful of al
least electing a governor and two con
gressmen this fall , and would not be
surprised If the whole ticket , from
top to bottom , went through. Plans
are already under way for an active
campaign , and more speakers will be
In the field for the democratic cause
