iue time.
Mr. Stephens has been congression
al campaign manager for the democrats - (
crats for eight years. He conducted |
he campaigns of P. E. McKilllp and j j
Judge Graves , when James F. Boyd , '
republican , defeated these democrats J
by close margins. In 1908 he camV
lalgned for Mr. Latla and won him Ihe
seat from Boyd by a majority of slight-
y above 1,900. Two years later this
najority was raised to 7,300.
Wliem Latta made the run the seca
end time , it was understood that it j j
was his last canvass for congress. The ]
general belief at that time was that ; I
Mr. Latla would slep aside In 1912
ind Ihat Stephens would be the dem
ocratic candidate. This opinion was
so far accepted that it was generally

fight at the hands of Edgar Howard of
Columbus , who wanted the congres
sional title himself. Howard Is the
only democrat In the district who has
made public a desire for ofllce In
Washington since Mr. Latla first be
came a candidate. The Columbus
man , however , is a firm personal
friend of Mr. Stephens , and it is as
serted that he would not think of com
peting with him for the democratic
On Ihe republican side , former Con
gressman Boyd has been Ihe recent
Third district candidate. He has been
twice defeated by Mr. Latta , with
Stephens as the latler's campaign man

Brian -contesled for the republican
nomination , but Boyd snowed him un i-
der. Mr. Brian is now engaged in busi 1-
ness In Lincoln and is considered out
of the Third district affair.
Under the state law as interpreled
by Attorney General Martin , Congress
man Latla's successor will be chosen

on Three Big Bakeries.

national union of bakery and confec
lonery workers which opened Its tr
ennlal convention here yesterday wl
fight the alleged "bread Irust , " whlc
refuses to recognize the union , by go
Ing Into the baking business itaolf. At
least It will launch Its own bakeries
In cities where the trust refuses to
recognize the union If the recommen
dation made to the convention today
by Otto E. Fisher of ChlcaRo , Inter
national secretary of the union , In his
annual report Is followed. The "bread
trust , " made up of three of America's
greatest bakery companies , Is the real
enemy of the bakers and confection
ery workers , according to Mr. Fischer.
"The bread trust Is the most Impor
tant one we have over entered , " said
Mr. Fischer In his report. "I'pon the
victorious outcome of Iho same de
pends our future success. Thousands
of people live In localities where they
cannot buy union labelled bread. Wo
must supply the market where Biich
condition exists. Wo should at once
establish our bakeries In such cities
where It seems Impossible for our or
ganization lo gel a fool hold , or where
Ihe Irust concerns are controlling the
bread market to such nn oxteiil thai
no competing bakery would dare to
recognize our organization or use the
label. Our International union should
have control of all bakeries thus es-
labllahed. "

Is a Sensation in Horse World.
A sensation in horse circles through-
lit the world is promised as a result
f exposures made in the October Is-
ue of Carlson's Breeders Review , pub-
shed In Norfolk today. G. L. Carlson ,
lie editor , who Is recognized as an
uthorlty on scientific horse breeding ,
ddresses an open letter to II. G. Me-
llllan of Rock Rapids , la. , president
f the Percheron Society of America ,
n which Mr. Carlson calls upon Mev'
.Illlan . to explain a great many ac-
Mr. McMillan , who Is the president
f what Is considered the foremost
rganizatlon In Ihe horse world , Is ac-
used of methods by which Ihe honesl
'ercheron ' breeders of America are
aid to have lost millions of dollars.
Us methods are alleged to have com
pelled the Canadian government to
idopt a rigid Inspection of American
jred Percherons. The traffic In fraudulent -
ulent pedigrees is said to have reached
enormous proportions , dozens of
lorses of such pedigrees being sold at
) ublic sale at one time. Judging
lorses at fairs Is said to have been
nlluenced and controlled. Grade
lorses are said to have been exhibited
as horses of pure breeding. Legisla- _
ures are alleged to have been Influ
enced and a large part of the agrlcul-
ural and live of the coun-
ry have been subsidized and one of
America's greatest agricultural col
eges is alleged to have been corrupted
so that the mere mention of this one
time most highly honored institution
of its kind in all the world is but to
irouso suspicion.
Questionable Pedigrees Charged.
Mr. Carlson says McMillan has
made Innumerable questionable pedi
gree records. For example , he charges
that in the pedigree of Capton 35402
Vol. S page 139 "Percheron Records , "
the animal's dam is given as Childe-
bert 42S3 (551) ( ) . This name and number -
ber Carlson charges Is a stallion ac
cording to McMillan's own published
records and Carlson adds : "It Is the
first Instance In all the world's breedIng -
Ing that a stallion ever gave birth tea
a live foal. "
McMillan is charged with producing
and dealing extensively tn topcross
grade horses , "buying Ihem at a low
price only to sell them to Innocent
men who are not judges of breeding
and pedigrees. "
In regard to another Instance Carl
son says : "It will also be noticed
that Nina 20921 was not so very slow
as a breeder herself , since she pro
duced two foals In the spring of 1903. "
One Inslance Is cited In which Mc
Millan Is alleged to have registered
Imogene 22827 as the mother of a colt
before Imogene herself was born. Of
another case Carlson says : "A com
plaint was recently filed against you
In a Minnesota court for damages by
a Mr. Miller. The damage asked In
this case was based upon your repre
sentatlon that a certain colt which
you sold to Mr. Miller was a Percheron
of pure breeding , when In fact it was a
grade colt which you purchased in
Dakota. You filed an answer to that
complaint alleging that Mr. Miller was
not the party Inleresled. Hundreds
of breeders in Ihls county are now
asking why you filed that technical
answer , it you are Innocent of the
chni'go. Those men doslro to know m
why you did not light this charge on A
Its merits , If you nro Innocent , Instead
of resorting to such means as you did , rm
suit. In the " hope that you might win the

Gov. Norrls of Montana Wants More
Power for State Executives.
Spring Lake , N. J. , Sept. 12. Two
methods In which the powers of state
executives throughout the union ought
to ' bo strengthened , In the opinion of
Gov. Edwin L. Norrls of Montana ,
were discussed by him before Iho
conference of governors hero today.
The first vital step to bo taken ,
Gov. Norrls believes , In to bestow
upon governors the power to remove
Inefficient state officers charged with
the enforcement of the criminal and
remedial laws. The second Is to
grant the governor the right to lull Into
and refer legislation lo Ibo voters for
their approval or rejection.
Gov. Norrla addressed himself to
"Strengthening the Power of the
Executive. " In part , ho said :
"No useful purpose can bo served In
having unlimited authority lo call out
the militia when It Is desired to pre
vent prlzo fighting , suppress gambling ,
close wine rooms or enforce the crimi
nal statutes In general. To attempt
to suppress violations of the various
criminal laws by calling out the state
troops would be about as sensible or
practicable as would be the use of
coast defense artillery in destroying
sparrows. "
Hunnewell Town Council Won't Stand

them. The mayor then sent in the
names of two women for treasurer.
Each In its turn was rejected. Then
the mayor tried to fill Ihe vacancy
with two masculine sympathizers but
the council would not have It and ad
"I guess I'll have to call in the
state . officials yet , " said Mrs. Wilson ,
after the meeting. "The councllmeu
were ' actually rude. They won't be ,
however , after the state officers get
after them. Then they'll bo glad to
hold down their jobs as councilmcn
and submit to the wishes of Iho
mayor. "
