INSURGENTS MERELY PROTEST.
Falling to Land Places on Committees ,
They Itsue Statement.
Washington , April 28. The senate
formally organized for business today
by adopting the list of appointments
to committee drawn up by the ma
jority of both parties. The expected
fight against the adoption of lists
threatened by the progressive repub
licans did not develop , Senator La-
Follette contenting himself with read
ing a formal protest against the selec
tions made by the regular republicans.
The LaFollette statement , prepared
at a conference of thirteen Insurgents
Senator Konyon , the new senator
from Iowa , having joined the original
twelve - set forth at some length the
growth of the socallcd progressive
movement in the republican party. It
asserted that the progressive repub
licans entertain marked mid well de-
lined differences of opinion from the
regulars ; that the progressives now
have more than one-fourth of the re
publican membership , in the senate ,
and they have become a "settled and
established fact in political history. "
The progressives , It was claimed ,
had a right to one-fourth represen
tation on the various committees. The
protest was directed against appoint
ments to the finance committee , on
which the insurgents wished to place
Senator Rristow , and the interstate
commerce committee on which Mr.
LaFollette desired a place.
Regulars Make Reply.
Three of the nine republicans on
interstate commerce committee , it is
pointed out , were from New England
and it was asserted that this commit

sons not friendly to advanced legisla
tion regarding the railroads , and the
finance committee had been left in
the control of "ultra-high tariff repub

insurgent statement , Senator Gallin

committees , said he was quite con

ematically , he declared the insurgent
wing was entitled to 100 places. As a

Every Town Has a Few Knockers.
. Norfolk , Neb. , April 29. Editor
NOWH : Two forces are always at
work In the making of a city : The
few good men who stand for progress ,
and who are the true builders of the
' city ; and the few knockers who are
always trying to tear down the city
structure as fast us the true builders
can erect it. The former make the
_ sacrifices , do the work necessary for
the growth and development of the
city , and are the most potent force
In the building of all cities. The lat
ter , upon the other hand , are the
greatest burden a city has to carry
r the heaviest tax which the people of
a city are ever compelled to pay and
every city has at least a lew of them.
Fortunately for most cities the former -
mer class of men are in the majority ,
and the moral force of the efforts of
such men make their work and pres
ence more effective than that of the
knockers. The story of city building
in all parts of the world IH a mighty
. Interesting one , and the story of the
- few great and successful city builders
, is even more Interesting. Strange as
it may appear to most readers , yet
the fact remains that all the men who
have left behind them well recognised
principles of city building were poor
- men men who cared HtUe for monej
" or the things money stands for who
, placed manhood and womanhood far
- above the mere acquisition of wealth.
- It In because of their unhealthy caste
for the profits of today , that so many
progressive and energetic men fall In
their efforts at city building. They
view everything to be done or acquired
by a city from the viewpoint of dollars ,
but the world hns learned sadly In
some Instances that It takes some
thing besides dollars to make a city
that will endure for all time. The
lollars will come In any country pos
sessing a fertile soil , If tbo city Is
milt upon a foundation broadly Intel-
Igcnt and honorably progressive.
That which makes the future city
s not the thing which we see today ,
atwl very often a single city makes ,
or breaks , a great state. Oxford was
'outided for the one purpose of de-
eloping the intelligence of a great
people The Urltlsh people owe their
very existence to the work done at
Oxford. In the development ot the
sciences of law , government , physics ,
philosophy and others rll tbo world
s Indebted to Oxford.
Iloston was built upon a corner-
> tone of mental training , and nearly
three-hundred jears later wo still find
t the dominating force of the city ,
and the state as well. Other cities
n great numbers now have good
.ehools and 'rolleges , and universities ,
but it was the few pioneers in that
movement which made this possible.
Our own Norfolk is a cause for hap-
: iy congratulations , because of the
large number of progressive and en
terprising men who live here. In no
Itv Is there a larger percentage of
imslness men who are doing all that
In their power lies tu promote the
best interests of their eltj. There are
business men in Norfolk who are
making sacrifices much greater than
should he expected of them--much
greater than the demands of business
and ohlluatioiib due their families will
jnstilj. When the size of the city is
taken into consideration , Norfolk has
the best and most eflective commer
cial organization in America. Enter-
pi ising men from Ohio to the Rocky
mountains have their eye on the Nor
folk Commercial club. Every town
In Nebraska is trying to learn the Nor
folk way of doing business.
There are displays of goods in the
windows of some of the business hous
es of Norfolk ns well as systems of
artlstie decoration that would bo n
credit to a city of a hundred times its
population. There are schools than
which no better , or more efficient ,
can be found in America. There are
raaiiy manly men men whom it is
a pleasure to know and do business
with. There are many noble women.
There are many children than whom
none are more iuteiesting or lovable.
These are some of the forces that are
making our city one of the best in
Nebraska these are the true builders
Like all other cities Norfolk has at
work a few destructive forces a few
men who are not city builders. I be
lieve , however , that we have as few
of them as any city In this or any
other country , but even a few such 1
men can be the cause of compelling a
elt > to carry a very heavy burden.
It is because of the peculiar balance of
the human mind that the knocker and
the pessimist can do so much injury
to the progress of a city. There are
very few positive minds , or minds
that are capable of quick and firm de
cision. There are many men who
are wholly incapable of firm decision ,
and such men are very susceptible to
influence , be that influence good or
bad. It is with such men that the
knocker gets in his work.
All the knockers of which we know
belong to one of three classes of men.
I have in mincl at this time three
Norfolk knockers belonging to each
of these three clashes , and I will try
and describe them as they are known
in our city.
The first man I hove In mind be-
to u class of men who never
create an > newwealth , but who al-
wajs manage to live because of the
wealth created by others. This man
is very much of a sport , and such
men usually are , for he who lives off
the labors of others generally expects
to live with the least possible effort
inrt exertion on their own part , and
trill , in turn leads them to believe that
thcyihave a right to feel sporty. This
man has been in Norfolk about three
jears , but the city is the better in
no way because of his presence here ,
since he has contributed In no way
to the progress or prosperity of the
community , his sole aim being to
gather in easj money for himself. The
town he left when be came to Nor
folk feels that it lost nothing when
tie left there , for ho was a knocker
there as well as here , besides doing
no more for that town than he has
done for Norfolk.
The beeond man I have in mind be
longs to a class of men so brutal In
nil their instincts , that they are strang
ers to the common decencies of life ;
men who have no regard for woman
hood or the home ; men who will fight
with their own children upon the pub- '
lie street ; men who would steal from
their trot hers or sisters If they thought
they c > ild do it without being de
tected. Such men we would expect
to be knockers , and this man surely
The third man belongs to a class
of men having no Influence whatever ,
and fortunately can do no Injury by
knocking except among a very few
undesirable people. But they are a
class who carry a knife up their sleeve
ready to strike a man In the dark
if an occasion IB given them , not hav
ing the courage to meet one In the
light of day. These men are the bur
den that Norfolk Is carrying. These
men are the knockers who try so much
to tear down and destroy the work of
the trie builderfe of our city.
Wh'ie my nearly klxty years of life
teat hey me that no knocker ever had
a sound heart , yet It seems to bo n
disease , and us iuch we should re-
gard these men with charity and pity ,
for it is quite as difficult for a man
to chance his inherent meanness , an
It Is for a leopnid to change his spots.
The most that ran bu done Is to so
educate the public mind that men
will be able to observe and appreciate
good , whenever and wherever they see
It. This would give the knocker
mighty poor picking , and soon put him
out of business.

Mexican Lieutenant and 28 Soldiers
Mexico City , April 28. Refusing to
surrender or leave the train on which
he and his command of thirty soldiers
were being brought to the capital , a
second lieutenant , little more than l
boy , engaged In a battle with a force
of 400 rebels at Cajoes , Guerrero. A
the conclusion of the brief encounter
the lieutenant and twenty-eight of the
soldiers were dead and the remaining
two of his were prisoners. One of the
arms of the lieutenant was shot away ,
The rebels were under command o
"General" Prudenclo FIguero. Learn
ing that troops were being carried on
the Cuernnvaca division of the Na
tlonal railways , the rebel commander
marched to Cajoes , a station some
distance below Cuernavac. When the
train stopped he sent forward a mes
senger to demand the surrender of
the troops and a request if they would
not surrender to abandon the train in
order that the lives of the passengers
be not endangered.
Fresh from the school of Asplrantea ,
a military training school , the boyish
officer sent back word that he hod his
orders to continue on that train. Lit
tle time was lost in beginning the
fight The rebels poured down the
embankment on cither side of the
train and almost simultaneously the
shooting was begun by them and by
the soldiers on the train.
Passengers who had been Imploring
the young officer to yield were In a
panic. The cries of the women and
children were heard In the roar of
the rifles and the snots from the reb
els raked the sides of the train , many
entering coaches occupied by passen
gers. But one , however , did personal
damage. That one killed Luis BusUv
mente , a young civil engineer on his
way to the capital to be married. Bus-
tamente was kneeling beside a fright
ened little girl passenger attempting
to comfort her when he was shot.
Passengers who arrived here on the
train late brought the story of the
battle to the capital , and today there
stand In the yards of the railway the
bullet-scarred coaches , mute evidence
of the encounter.
At no time during the engagement
did the federals betray signs of cow
ardice. With the blood of their com-
panlons running from tbo door of Uie
little second class coach , the men
coolly fired Into the ranks of their as-
sallantH until but two remained.
- Children Save Man'i Life.
- In the first class coach , Immediately
In the rear of the soldiers' car , was
riding the jefe politico of Iguala , is.y
. rero. The rebels forced their way
through the panic stricken
declaring they would Improve the op
portunity of ridding the country of ono
more of his kind. With the Jcfo po
litico were traveling his wlfo and live
children. They sunoundcd him with
running down their faces and begged
the rebels to spare his life. A short
consultation and the rebels told the
wife that the entire family might con
tinue their Journey.
Following the lighting , while the
dead federals wore being taken from
the car tuid the rebels were collecting
their dead and wounded and noim
could tell how many of them had been
hit by the federals an American
talked with Figure , the rebel leader.
He snld he had been commissioned a
general by Madoro and placed In com
mand of the troops In the states of
Guerrera , Puebla , Oaiacas and More-
los. General Figura added that ho
was now concentrating his forces for
an attack upon Igxialu , from where
they would march upon Cuernavaca.
Once that point Is taken , according to
the plan , as he has outlined , there
will begin it general advance by all
the rebel forces In the south upon the

Superintendent Hunter Has Resigned.
Superintendent F. M. Hunter of the
Norfolk public schools has today filed
his resignation with the board of ed
ucation to take effect about July L
Mr. Hunter returned Tuesday from
Lincoln , where he had a half day's
conference with Chancellor A vary in
regard to accepting the principalship
of the agricultural 'school of the uni
versity. So good did the proposition
look to Mr. Hunter that he returned
to Norfolk fully determined to accept
the regents' appointment.
The Norfolk board cannot act on
Mr. Hunter's resignation until next
Monday evening , when a regular meet
ing will be held. There is , however ,
no doubt that the board will accept
the resignation of Mr. Hunter. Mem
bers of the board recognize that Mr.
Hunter must take the opportunity for
advancement offered him.
Mr. Hunter's new work begins Sep
tember 1 , but he will probably leave
Norfolk about July 1.

grets , " said Mr. Hunter. "It almost
brings me to tears to leave Norfolk.
It Is very hard to leave Norfolk and
the school work which I like so well. "
Mr. Hunter's new work will be of
an executive nature. It will bo his
work to build up the state agricultural
school'Into-the important educational
factor which it ought to be. Instead
of 500 students , it should have 2.000
3 oung men studying scientific farm'
ing , Mr. Hunter says. High schools
have seldom been visited in behalf of
this school and few high school pu
pils realize the advantages vvffich the
school offers to an agricultural state ,
Mr. Hunter is a young man but 32 ,
He was formerly a star football player
on the Nebraska university team. He
stands considerably over six feet high
is broad shouldered and possessed o
personal magnetism and enthusiasm
for his work that will undoubtedly
revolutionize the state agricultura
There is no intimation as yet as to
whom the Norfolk board will choose
as Mr. Hunter's successor here.
