ever hlH democratic opponent , Dan V.
Stephens , of Fremont.
"I know that 7,1100 seems like a
tremendous majority to ovurromo , "
Mr. Klllotl tiuld , "hill whun the votu
IH analyzed It loses UH fortnldahlo ap
pearance. In the first place , thu Into
Mr. LattaVIIH a strong man , a good
man and exceedingly popular In his
homo city and county. Kvoryono who
Know him HUcd him. In all Ills yuarH
of successful hanking at Tuluunah hu
had boon loiilunt and generous , In
stead of hard and tight flutud. Ho
wan a helpful man to his friends and
a power for good In the commnnlty
in which ho lived. That explains In
largo measure why moro than -1,000
ropuhllcaim In thu district voted for
him and how hu was ahlu to convurt
his own county of Hurt a normal ro-
puhllcan of from 500 to 700 Into a
majority for himself of 5IJ7 ; how ho
WIIH able to Increase a normal demo
cratic majority oC100 In the county
of Cumlng , where 1 live , to 1,100 , and
how hu wan ahlu to change ainiill re
publican majorities in other counties
to majorities of respectable sl/.o for
himself. The district Itself IH nor
mally republican , and f think It will
.show Itself next Tuesday to hu nor
mal Ihls year. The probability Is
that the open .shop of 'scab' policy
adopted by Mr. Stephens In his print
ing office will alienate from him the
union labor vote In Fremont , Nor
folk , Columbus and other places. "
Whirlwind Finish by Elliott.
Mr. Klllott Is making a whirlwind
finish of his short campaign and has
developed strength In unexpected
places , for Instance , In counties whore
there IK u largo Gorman population.
Mr. lOlllott was born In Pennsylvania ,
of u good Herman mother , and all his
early training was that of the ordin
ary German boy on a farm In a Gvr-
man community. Today hu speaks
German as well as he does English ,
; uid ho can make a public address
with equal ease In either tongue , hike
the old Gorman soldiers who fought
' mil Slgol" In the war of the rebel
lion , il seems over here that the Gor
man voters are pretty near all "for
The majority of the people who
Know Mr. Klllott call htm " .Mm. " and
many of them , when they greet him ,
slap him upon his broad back. He is
a great "mixor , " and he talks what
his friends declare Is good horse
souse. Those friends , who have
Known him all his life , say ho never
was "swelled up" and that he will
bo the "same old , llm" down In Wash
ington that he always has been out
hero on the Nebraska prairies.
Mr. Klltott last nlght was given one
of the most delightful surprises ol
bis life , lie was speaking at Fre
mont , the home of his opponent , when
his neighbors and friends of West
Point swarmed in on a special train ,
They took a band , along too , and ov-
orybod > In Fremont knew they wort
"Wo just wanted the people of Fro
nioiit to know what West 1'olnt thinks
of Jim lOlllott. " they said , and todaj
The republicans of Hurt county to
day uiuilu a demonstration in favoi
of Mr. Klllott. far surpassing any
thing of the kind ever before seoi
in the county. The republicans o
Hurt , the banner republican county o
the district , boast that they are Jus
plain republicans , that they "vote V :
straight' ninety-nine times out of :
hundred , and that if a man is gooi
enough to get on the republican ticket
ot ho is plenty good enough to voti
for. Upon the walls of their head
quarters hang the portraits of Lin
coin. Grant. Garfleld , McKlnley
KoosovoH and Taft all good ropubll

W. II. Van Cleave is county chali
man of the party , and he Is u com

Mr. Klllott was In the conspicuous

riot , and Iho party candidates for of-
co In Burl county.
" \\hether I shall be elected next
'uosday or not , " Mr. Klllott said , "I
Iwnyn shall remember with grateful
eart die splendid manner In which
lie lei'i'bllrans ' of Hurt county have
rented ae today. "
The Itinerary of the party embraced
ln > Inland towns of Decatur and Her-
ha , and Lyons , Oakland and Craig ,
ompleilng the circuit of seventy-flvo
illes by returning to Tekamah ,
vhero a big rally was held tonight.
Good sized crowds were waiting at
II the towns. Brief speeches wore
mile In Mr. Klllott and Mr. Van
Heave , the latter Introducing the can-
Idates. Mr. lOlllott and A. W. Jeffries ,
lie latter of Omaha , spoke at the To-
amah meeting tonight.
Greeted by Dig Crowds.
As the procession arrived at the
Ifferent towns today there was a
olsy looting of horns by the occu-
ants of the long line of automobiles ,
'hen the bands played , after which
lie speaking took place.
At Decalur , where the first stop
us made , the people were anxious as
o the future protection of the town
rom the encroachment of the Mis-
ourl river and Mr. Klllotl pledged
lumelf , In ( he event of his election ,
o hi * watchful .of their Interests In
Replying to a question as to how hu
teed In tin ; matter of the treatment
f old soldiers , Mr. lOlllott said his
pinion was that nothing was too good
[ ir the men who wore the blue.
"My friends , you have been hearing
hat the republican parly of our grout
late was divided Into camps , " said
Ir. Klllott. swinging Into his speech ;
that some republicans were calling
hemselves republicans of one kind
r another , were placing prefixes bo-
jro the old party name ; but my judg-
lent Is that these prefixes are being
roppod , and in the last few weeks a
ilghty unification of the membership
f the party has taken place , and
nit , despite the pleadings of Mr.
Irynn , Nebraska , on next Wednesday
lornlng will bo found In the ropubli-
an column , as of old. "
Discusses the Tariff.
Addressing himself to the subject
f the tariff , Mr. Klllott said he was
believer In a tariff for protection ,
lierever protection was actually
eeded , but not otherwise. Ho yield-
d to no one , he declared , in his nil-
ilratlon of a tariff system which has
nabled the United States to nccom-
llsh in fifty years what It has taken
ther nations five times as long to
Mr. Klliott though the revisers of
10 tariff should be careful to con-
Ider the rights of the great consuni-
ig masses working In the Industrial
eld. Ills observations had led him
) believe that whenever the mills
ml looms of the country are running
ill time , with the operatives on full
ay , that the producers enjpy prosper-
y. lie recalled the wisdom of Wil-
ain MeKluley , who proclaimed that
. would lie better to open the mills
f the world to the unemployed than
) open the mines.to the free and nn-
mlteil coinage ot silver.
Mr. Klllott Indorsed that principle
hleh llxes the tariff at the differ-
nee between the cost of producton
t home and the cost of production
broad. While the tariff , no doubt , In
iiany Instances should be reduced , ho
aid. yet these reductions should be
The tariff remarks of Mr. Klliott at
Decatur , as at all other places , were
Van Cleave Talks at Lyons.
Mr. Van Cleave at Lyons , where the
nlddny meal was enjoyed , said the
epuhlicans of Nebraska now were
vltncsslng tlio spectacle of its most
llstlngulshed citizen. William Jen-
lings Bryan , going up and down the
tate , calling upon "progressive" re-
mhlicaus ( and Mr. Van Cleave said :
Whatever that means ! ' ) to vote this
ear with the democrats. He added :
'Do you hear George W. Norrls , the
nsurgent leader , or Gov. Aldrlch ad-
Islng that ? No , sir ! They are ad-
Isiug every republican to vote the
straight party ticket and that's what
vo'io going to do. "
Mr. Klliott at Lyons said ho did not
'eel that ho was in the enemy's conn-
ry , but that he was at home , among
'rlonds. Ho said that recently his
ible opponent , going out of tlio state ,
o Sioux City , had been interviewed
o the effect that he was running as a
'progressive democrat" not as an
) ld line democrat. Mr. Stephens on
hat occasion , too , had assumed what
ever righteousness he had been ahlu
o discover In all other political par
That the voters would assist Mr
Stephens in lifting this burden from
Ills shoulders was stated by Mr. 101
llott to be his confident belief.
" 1 want yon to understand , " Mr
Klllotl continued , "that I stand npor
a Taft platform , but. standing upor
that platform , 1 reserve to myself tin
right to criticise him and differ wltl
him on any matter of policy. Bui
however much we , as republicans
may disagree with the president , wi
all must recognize his great ability
and his honesty of purpose. Ho stand :
four square to all the world. "
Enthusiasm at Oakland.
The enthusiasm at Oakland wai
marked. Kveryone seemed to bo ne
qimlntod with Mr. Klllott. When h <
mounted the seat of an automobile
he said he had lived just across tin
county line for so long a time tha
it seemed unnecessary for him t <
stand up and toll his hearers wha
he stood for.
"You all know me as well as
know myself. " ho said. "I will sa ;

than any other district In the union.

day. Chapln's Lincoln In in a class
all by Itself. It has grown out of a
four-act drama , "Lincoln , " produced In
the east with a cast of about a dozen
characters. It was produced twenty-
one consecutive times at the Liberty
theater , at the new Academy of Music
in Brooklyn , and a score of other
places , always for long runs. Then
Chapln wrole a one-acl play , "At the
White House , " which had a similar
run and a similar success. Hut Cha
pln's own work was so pre-eminently
the feature of all these efforts In portraying
traying the life of Lincoln , ho found
that ho was able In tlmo to glvo his
Lincoln presentation moro effectively
as a monologue. So he came out with
his monologue. That was about two
years ago , when the nation was ob
serving the Lincoln centennial.
Chapln's efforts have thus far been
expended mostly In the east ; very lit

lightful and highly Instructive.

TAFT TALKS OF THE FLEET.
New York , Nov. , ' ! . Following the

"Those who saw the fighting fleet

to ho struck with Its preparedness
and its high military efficiency , and
wo are iroud ) of its personnel.
"The demonstration had a value In
arousing patriollHin , in increasing the
general knowledge and Interest In the
navy , In illustrallng the ability to mo

Ihe skill of the officers , who turned
the whole fleet in the narrow river
and sent it to sea at the rate of four
teen knots per hour.
"Tho equipment of the fleet Is ex
cellent , except as to the number of
destroyers and cruisers and colliers
In proportion to the whole number.
Wo had In the t'leel today twenty-two
destroyers , and to meet the full re
quirements there should have been
approximately 100 destroyers , or an
average of four to each battleship. It
is true that there has been a marked

tleships , oilier nations are building
enormous high speed cruisers twen
ty-eight knots per hour and it is be
lieved our navy should he similarly

"I am more than ever convinced of
the desirability of conferring upon
the commanding officer of our fleet
the tille of admiral , or al least of
vice admiral. At present the rank
ing officer is rear admiral and this
Is not commensurate with the import
ance of Hie fleet. At the review of
the German lleet at Kiel a smaller
number of ships was under the com
mand of a full admiral ; two squad
rons were commanded by vice ad
mirals and each of four divisions was
commanded by a rear admiral. "

LOS ANGELES RESULTS.
Socialists Must Go to Polls In Decem
ber Women to Decide It.
Los Angeles. Cal. . Nov. 2. Com
plete official returns of the primary

socialists to capture the mayoralty
by a majority vote , and thus obvlato
the necessity of going before the people
ple again on Dec. 5 , at the regular
Mayor George Alexander , "good gov
ernment" nominee , and Job Harrlman ,
socialist , will compete In a two-man
contest for the office. The returns
show the primary vote to have been
as follows :
Harrimnn. 20.157 ; Alexander 1C-
790 ; Mushet. S.10S ; Gregory. 327 ;
Becker , 579.
Harriman's plurality was 3.307. His
vote fell short 4.1SS of a majority
over all. which was necessary for
election. All of the socialist candi
dates for the city council , and nil except -
copt two for the board of education

ticket. The socialist candidates for
city auditor and city assessor wilt

Taft Reviews the Warships.
New York , Nov. 2.- President Taft
today had his first real view of Un-
American navy. It has so happened ,
since ho entered the white house , that
the fleet which was so greatly admired
by his predecessor , Col. Hoosovelt , had
been on widely scattered duty for the
greater part of the time , and while
the president had reviewed two divis
ions of the Atlantic fleet in Province-
town harbor in the summer of 1910 ,
and a little more than two weeks ago
in San Francisco had stood on the
quarterdeck of the flagship California
of the Pacific fleet , ho had never un
til today come into his own uu com-
mander-in-chlef of the fighting forces
of the country.
From the bridge of tlio presidential
yacht Mayflower Mr. Taft reviewed
the gray armada that for nearly a
week had swung at anchor in the Hud
son river awaiting his instruction. As
the litlle while Mayflower picked her
way in and oul among Iho giant craft
of the battleship line the guns roared
in salute. The yacht , with the presi
dent's blue-crested flag at the main
truck , sailed gracefully along the
seven-mile column of fighting ships ,
turned at the end and headed again
down Iho river.
Late this afternoon the entire fleet ,
ninety-nine vessels in all , will get un
der way and pass in review ot the
president while Ihe Mayflower lies at
anchor off Iho Statue of Liberty.
President Taft planned to spend the
entire day on the water. His train
arrived in Jersey City from Washing
ton shortly after S o'clock , and a few
minutes later he was being ferried to
the Mayflower. As he went aboard ,
his flag was broken from the mast
head , and the usual honors wore paid
to him. As a rule Mr. Taft requests
that all ceremonies on the Mayflower
bo suspended. Today's events being
purely official , however , the ceremonies -
monies prescribed in the navy regula
tions were followed to the letter.
The party aboard the presidential
yacht also was strictly official. Sec
retary of the Navy Meyer , the presi
dent's aide , and Secretary Hilles went
aboard with Mr. Taft. A large party
of invited guests , including senators ,
representatives and foreign military
and naval attaches from Washington ,
were aboard the dispatch boat Dolphin
phin , which followed in the wake of
Admirals Pays Respects.
When President Taft had taken his
place on the bridge , the Mayflower
got under way and headed up the
Hudson. On board the flagship Con
necticut a sharp lookout had been
kept down the harbor , and as soon
as the presidential flag was made out
in the distance the flagship let go
with her saluting guns.
The white puff from the first gun
had hardly cleared the muzzle when
the other vessels In the line follow
ing the motions of their leader had
begun the firing of the presidential
salute of twenty-one guns.
The last reports of the salute were
drifting down the river from the line
as the Mayflower reached an anchor
age near the Connecticut. Her engines
had scarcely stopped turning when a
score of sturdy little steam barges
were headed for her starboard gang
The admirals of the fleet were on
their way personally to pay their
respects to the president. Rear Ad-
mlral Hugo Osterlmus , commander-ln-
chief of the fleet , sailing from the
Connecticut , was the first to board
the Mayflower. He was attended by
his aides and as he passed up the
gangway there was a flourish of trum
pets , a ruffle of drums and a strainer
or two of a lively march by the ma
Admiral Osterhaus soon was followed -
ed by the other staff officers of the
fleet. The president and Secretary
Meyer stood on the quarter deck. Mr.
Taft had a cordial expression of greet
ing for each of the officers.
When the reception had ended arid
the admirals had sailed away In their
barges , the president prepared to re
turn the courtesy with a call on board
the Connecticut. The guns of the
flagship thundered a salute as ho
carao aboard and again when ho loft.
It was from the Connecticut that
President Tnft got his vlow of tijo
anchored fleet ,
