WATSON HAKES GREAT SPEECH.
The repnhlican meeting nt the opera
house last Wednesday was enthusiastic
and ctoepriu; to republican hearts.
It rained ail afternoon, ami the tram
which carried the Kpeakcrs was an
honr and a half late, but that did not
prevent the attendance of a crowd
which tilled the opora house. The
longest speech of the evening was de
livered by the eloquent Congressman
Watson of Indiana. Speaker Cannon
made a short and characteristic speech.
At 8:45 County Chairman Iloare
called the houeo to order and graceful
ly turned the chairmanship of the
meeting over to S. C. Gray as a form
er fellow Townsman of Speaker Can
non. Mr. Grav intrcduceud Mr. Wat
son. At the conclusion of Congressman
Wataon's speech, Mr. Grav spoke
briefly of Ins recollections of tho early
days of tho republican party in Illi
nois, at the time of tho famous Lincoln-Douglas
delmtes. Mr. Gray paid
that one of his proudest recollections
was that hi vote hail helped to elect
very republican president from Lin
coln to Roosevelt. He introduced
Speaker Joseph G. Cannon, who spoke
as follows :
Mr. Chairman mid Citizens -It is
now ten ininute,s after tea. Yon have
been here. I am eatifsficil. since b
o'clock, and you havo just listened to
your fellow citizen, formprly of Illi
nois, now of Nebraska. 1 could not
make a better talk in tho .vnuo length
of time than he ha,-i made.
Since. I came to Nebraska, I am at a
loss to know why tho congressional
committee sent me here. When I And
tho conditions existing in .Nebraska,
I realize that you are just as compe
tent as anybody they could send hero
to carry on this campaign.. As I size
it up, I feol that if I could mandamus
every voter in Nonraska and I will
say to the ladies that a mandamus is
a writ that says "you must"-if I
could mandamus every voter in Ne
braska so a; to mnku him exerciso his
ilutv as a sovereign, and thereby be
sure that he would vote on tho Stb day
of November next, I wonld start east
tonight nud tell tho folks not to send
anybody else oat to talk to you, that
you are ready to vot and that I am
willing to nrcepi your verdict as final
iu this matter.
I have been in your Ltato for several
days. I camo in at Falls City, down
in the valley of the Republican; oat
to Hastings ; down to Kearney ; and
up into Cuming. Madison and Saun-
ders counties. I have watched closely
the crops as I passed through, and do
yon know you have as good a corn
crop as wo have over iu Illinois, and 1
could not give it any higher praise.
Then you have alflafa. "Thou shalt
not covet' is one of tho command
ments bat as I look over the hundreds
of thouauds of acres of alfalfa that
you have in this state. 1 will just take
you into my coulidenc and tell yon
that I violated that commandment and
I did covet for Illinois tho capacity to
prixluce that great crop. But you
cannot have everything in ouo place.
Now I am looking at yon. Strong
1 men, well clothed as auy audience
that I luivo met anvwhere, all looking
healthy, vou aro tho best looking an-
dienca that I have met this year -you
men as far as health is concerned, I
will nut sav but you aro a pood aver.
lor h0ttlf'Iin'' n(1 ti! Ia,1ies just
as welt as you and u great deal hand
And think of it this commonwealth
of Nubraka ! Wo are no longer spring
chickens, brother Gray, aud we aro
old enough to tecolloct when there
was no Nebraska. 110 Kansas. And
tho effort of the men who controlled
servilo labor to make slavery national
aad freedom sectional caused the or
ganization of tho republican party.
And since that time, what has become
tho commonwealths of Nebraska and
Kansas, and those to the west of us,
save Oregon and California, sprang a
if by magic into existence. Trans
continental railways havo been con
structed and the desert has been made
to blossom as tho roe. Wo have
grovrn from thirty millions to eighty
millious of people. Servile labor no
longer exists. The boy today, thank
God, doesn't have to havo tho same
feeling that you had and I had when
wo wore boys living just across that
imagiuaty line. Servile labor, chenp
labor, wn.4 doing the same work that
we were doing, and thereby degrad
ing our labor. Freedom, national
freedom came, and with it a perma
nent policy so well described by Indi
ana's eloquent son. Mr. Watson.
Today our eighty millions of sover
eign people make one-third of all the
world's manufactured products And
n the homo market we sell to each
other, back and forth ono-third far
mers, two-thirds doing something esle
we sell D2 parts out of 100 of all our
agricultural proaucts and our monu
factured products amongst ourselves.
Eight parts out of ICO go to tho mar
kets of the world. Which is bigger,
$2 or S? And for tho last three years,
the eifcbt parts that were sent into the
markets of the world make us the,
greatest exporting nation on earth.
There is tho fact under our policy.
But somebody says, "O, if you
would take off that robber tariff. I
could buy my woolen and fine cottons
and certain other things cheaper, be
cause it costs less to make them over
there." Yes, you could if you had
something to bay with. But no man
lives to himself, and the two-thirds
buys from us Nebraska and Kansas
and Iowa and Illinois farmers. We
are only one-third of tLe shooting
match. They buy our products, and
that two-thirds earns twice as much
wages as similar workers in the old
world. Don't you see that if we sell
our products in our own markets we
save transportation across the ocean.
Under our policy of diversiGcataion of
our industries we bring farm and fac
tory closer and closer together. Think
ct it! Illinois under the census of
1900, still first in agricultnro and now
the third state in the union in manu
factures. New York is first, then
Pennsylvania, Illinois, Ohio, Indiana
and Massachusetts. The center of the
manufacturing industry is a thousand
miles nearer to you in Nebraska than
it was when Nebraska was organised
into n territory. And in this great
middle West tho manufacturing indus
try is constantly increasing.
Let me tell you something. In this
commonwealth which has leaped to
over a million in population, in 2000
your agricultural product all-told was
worth 1(53 million dollars ; at tho same
timo your manufactured product was
worth 144 million dollars. It came
within lit millions of tho value of
your agricultural product, don't you
see? Yon have Omaha, you have No-
DrasKa uiry, you navo Lincoln near
by. You have in the broad level of
the Platto river one of the best sheets
or water on earth. It has a great fall,
and invention that invention which
is begotten in the common and high
schools will turn that water into
millions of dollars. Change is ever
busy ; the world is about to tbe revo
lutionized by electricity and other
With a wnter fall liko you have in
the Platte, there is no reason why in
Nebraska tho farm and factory should
not como closer and still closer to
gether. There is no reason why in
the next 20 years yon should not be
the sixth or seventh state in manufac
ture. Now I am told that there are a great
many naturalized citizens here. I am
glad of it. I am not afraid of all tho
people who may como from Europe to
this country if they come in good
faith to cast their lot with us. Nine
hundred thousand (came last "year.
Wo 6hut out the pauiers ; we shut out
contract labor. The laws aro being
enforced, but IKK), 000 came and we
welcomed them. If somebody had
shut off immigration two generations
ago, I wouldn't have been here at all.
There are two things I want to call
your attention to. nnd I vili do it in
a harry. Parker or Roosevelt is go
ing to be president. I am not going
to talk much about Parker. If I
should dip my tongue in nitric acid
and then in the brightest electric
light, I could not say about Parker as
well and as directly to the point as
your distinguished citizen, William J.
Bryan, has said about him. 1 will
rest it right there.
But if you will allow me, ladies, to
use a strong word, what the devil
makes Bryan, under all tho circum
stances, come in and vote for aud sup
port Parker whom he has told so much
truth about. I don't know. I just
give it up. Do you know?
Now, I will drop that part of it
right hero, except to say that Parker
there is one good thing about him
tells us that if we only make him pre
sident for four years he won't have it
any more. No, Parker, I don't think
we will elect you this year. Whs
should wo? Honor bright, democrats,
why should we? If God Almighty,
eighteen months ago, didn't know Al
ton B. Parker better than you and I
knew him, he is lost in time and eter
nity. He thinks he is running for
president. Now, look here. They
made a platform down there in St.
Louis. They were hard up for some
thing to put in their platform against
Roosevelt. They accepted the Pana
ma canal treaty, and then they turn
around and scold it and say it was all
wrong that Roosevelt should have
committed that dishonorable act and
trailed our honor in tho dust by mak
ing that treaty. It took two-thirds of
the senate to ratify that treatv. and
over half of tho democrats voted to
ratify it. They say it was stolen
goods, but we will go on and con
struct the canal. I should rather be
n thief than bo a cowaid nxd receive
and conceal the stolen goods.
They were hunting forau issue. So
they went on further and they said.
"Now, this man Roosvelt is usurping
the functions of congress. He is an
unsafe man. Why, he makes laws.
when the constitution says congress
suau maRo tue laws. " And they go
on to specify, and one ot their specifi
cations is that Roosevelt made that
pensicn order. You know abont it,
you boys who wore the blue. He
made it Inst March. They said he had
no right to make it. Well, let's see
about that. We republicans passed
that law '-." years after the war closea.
We believed it was right. We said
that every man who had served nice
ty days with an honorable discharge
should have a pension not exceeding
1-J a month if totally disabled for
manual labor. Afterwards the amount
was graded down to f6 a month as the
smallest pension. Cleveland came in
and changed the construction that
Harrison had put on that law. And
in changing the construction, as he
had tho right to do under the law, he
reduced tho pensions of 23,000 old sol
diers and put many thousands of them
off of the rolls. Recollect how you
hoys kicked all over the country when
that was done? But he did. And
after he had done it, it raised so much
fuss that he said, "I think I can fix
it," and ne issued an order that when
ever proof was filed that a soldier
qualified to receive a pension under
the act was 75 years old, whether he
was on the roll or not, he should have
f 13 a month. 75 years of age was to
be an evidential fact of his disability.
That was eleven years ago. The law
is what it is construed to be. Did ever
anybody accuse Grover of being presi
dent and congress both?
Then McKicley came in, and he
said, "I will add to Cleveland's order,
as I have authority to do under the
law, " and he ordered that whenever
a man should prove that he was 05
years of age and hud the necessary
military service, that should ba held
to be an evidential fact that he was
one-half disabled for manual labor and
he should get ti a month. Roosevelt
camo in. Roosevelt has been in the
army; ho is a noted civilian. Roose
velt knew that when a man in the
regular army is G2 years of age he
can retire with three-fourths pay, on
the principle that ho is no longer able
to perform the duties. He must retire
at CI. Now Roosevelt said, "I wil
make a graduated regulation." and he
ordered just as Cleveland and Mc
Kinley had done, under the same au
thorityhe ordered that when proof
was mado that a man was (3, that
should bo an evidential fact that he
was half disabled for manual labor,
and he should receive $G a month ; and
so on up to 70 years for total disabili
ty. Immediately there was a univer
sal howl that this was executive usur
pation. The commissioner of pensions
wrote congross a letter and said, "I
must have a million and a half dollars
DON'T EAT TOO FAST!
Don't bo in a hurry take plenty of time to properly chow your food.
A little rest after meals is a good thing also. There is only one thing to
be in a hurry about make haste to drop into Dack'a to see their new hair
brushes. They have plenty of them now, but first chance is best you
Chas. H. Dack Druggist
for deficiency. Tho republicans gave
it to him over democratic votes.
When Roosevelt wrote his letter of
acceptance a week or two ago, he put
a lot of conundrums to Parker. He
said,' "Yon want us to spend less
money. Your platform says so. But
how are you going to save it and
where ? You demand in your platform
that the naturalized citizen shall be
treated just as the native citizen of
tho United States, when he takes a
paisport and goes back home.EHe has
been treated that way right along,
but suppose he is not ; how are yon
going to compel that treatment when
you cut down the navy and put it out
of commission and cut down the
army?" asks Roosevelt. That was a
serious conundrum, and Parker did
not say a word about it.
And ho put ouo question after anoth
er, ami said finally, "Mr. Parker, if
you are elected president, will yoa
repeal that pension order?" And
Parker said. "Yes, I will, but after I
have repealed it and put off the roll
some 0,000 to 125,000 old soldiers,
then I will use my influence with con
gress to got them to pass an age ser
vice pension bill." He didn't say
what age, and didn't say why he
couldn't use his influence with con
gress to have the bill passed before he
revoked Roosevelt's order. Parker is
tho most iudefinite, generalizing kind
of a man that I ever knew. Why is
Parker against the pensions for old
soldiors? The pensioners are princi
pally in the middle west. Parker
must carry New York or he has no
chance. It is not hard to tell when
tho circumstances are known.
One matter further. What is con
gress? Congress is made up of a lot
of follows that you send down there
to cast your votes just as you would
if you were personally present. You
have a lot of good members in the
house from Nebraska. Yoa havo one
man that you have sent for several
terms, and he is one of a dozen out of
3b(i members. Otherwise your dele
gation is new. And let me tell you
they aro good stuff. I have had op
portunity to get acquainted with
them. I said to myself. "This great,
growing state of Nebraska should be
well represented on the committees;"
and they are. Your representative in
his first term was on the committee
of public hinds, one of the important
committees. There is no new dele
gation in the house so well represent
ed in the organization of the commit
tees as Nebraska's delegation. And
they have deserved it.
Now, look here. Do yoa want to be
well represented? Yes. What are
the two best represented states in con
gress? Iowa and Indiana. Why? Be
cause when they get a good thing they
keep it, and return their people to
congress after congress.
One other thing. W. J. Bryan, are
you going to vote for Parker after he
has written that letter of acceptance?
Democratic candidate for congress
against McCarthy here, are you going
to vote for Parker after reading that
letter? Do you endorse that letter?
Do you endorse the 'platform? Are
you in favor of that pensicn position :
Do you believe tariff is robbery? I
am not acquainted with you, and if
it must be in the halls of the house of
representatives as the successor of Mc
Carthy, I hope I shall never make
your acquaintance. But if you recant
and repent and leave tbe organization
that wants Parker to be president, 1
shall be glad to make your acquain
tance. Every candidate might die to
morrvow, and others as good or per
haps better than we are could be found
to take our places. The few people
who are candidates are nothing in
comparison with eighty millions of
people. I beg yoar pardon for keep
ing yoa so late and wish you good
Mr. Watson took up first the ques
tion of the postoffice scandals. He
said after reciting the history of the
indictment of the officials of the post
office department that the Republican
party with Theodore Roosevelt at its
head was big enough and strong
enough to prosecute mercilessly the
offenders on the government without
the aid of tho Democratic party.
He then took up the question of
trusts and said referring to tho ques
tion in this sabject, "The Republi
can party is proud in its record of
things done while ihe Democratic
party is proud in its record ot things
said, and between these two extremes
there is a chasm as deep and dark as
can bo found in the universe".
Mr. Watson referred to the record
of the Democratic party on the ques
tion of legislation respecting the
trusts. Cleveland paid no attention
to the matter until the end of his first
administration, when he merely call
ed attention to the matter in his last
mossage, stating that there were many
trusts formed and forming, but no
hope. Tho Republican congress had
just been elected nud the question
was therefore turned over to them.
Tho result was that the Sherman anti
trust law was enacted. A number of
decisions were secured as to tho scope
of the new law, and Harrison's ad
ministration was supplanted by that
of Cleveland. Tho law remained on
tho books as a head letter during tbe
wholo of Cleveland's last adininistra
iton, until the end of it when the
matter was turned over by resolution
of congress to a committee for inves
tigation. This committee heard many
witnesess, and finally made a report at
theyery closo of the last Cleveland
administration, which stated thp.t ow
ing to difference among themselves no
decision could be reaehed as to remedy.
McKinloy then came in and dur
ing the war with Spain no action
was taken, but when Roosevelts At
torney General took action it was
found that when the cases under tho
law came to the supreme court that
court was three years behind in its
work. Deserving a decisoin of the
highest court be asked congress to
pass a law taking the case out of its
turn and decided it at once. The Re
publican Congress did aa this law, and
tbe case was decided last February.
This decision completely upheld the
constitutionality of the Sherman law
and all tho cases brought with it.
Uuder this decision and the law
the Merger case was settled in which
J. J. Hill and August Belmont, now
Parker's manager, were interested.
Tho speaker then said "Why, how
do yon Democrats expect to elect Par
ker? You know that they hope that
Wall street will dump into the Dem
ocratic campaign fund enough money
to win the tight, because it is mad at
Roosevelt for his enforcement of the
He then took up the quation of pro
tection, explaining the bases of its
formation and the necessity for a
greater revenue iu this nation because
of the burdens that our peopie must
bear in bringing enlightenment, ed
ucation and patriotism to our people.
He qnotes Bismark's reference to the
American protection system, wherein
the great Chancellor' expressed the
opinion that the history of the United
States demonstrated the marvelous
utility nad practical value of that sys
tem and hoping that Germany would
adopt that great policy. Since that
time Germany- has adopted such a
svstem and that accounts for her great
development in recent years. Ho
appealed to the Germans and the Irish
for support of a policy that has made
Germany, and absence of it has ruined
Ireland. The speaker's reference to
the development of the tin plate in
dustry was very interesting. He said
that when McKinley first proposed
the inroduction of the tin plate in
dustry in this country, he was laughed
at by the Democrats in congress and
out of it. The trial was made unier
the Pingley law and today there are
10,000 laborers engaged in the tin plate
factories producing a better aud cheap
er grade of tinware than ever before,
the value of which industry was nearly
$75,000,000, all used in America. He
then asked if it would be wise to re
move the tariff on this product and ad
mit the competition of Wales, from
which country we formerly purchased
our supply of tinware.
Tbe speaker took up the question of
the selling abroad of products of our
industry for less money than it is sold
in this country. He showed that only
one-thirteenth of one per cent of the
total product of the United States is
sold for less money abroad than at
home, and only for tbe purpose then
of securing a foothold in the market
where competition is keen because of
cheaper labor. He likened this selling
to a clearance sale in a commercial
house, and drew a parallel to an in
dustry striving to use the foreign
market to unload its surplus and on
able the manufacturer to keep his
business going throughout the year in
cases where the home market could
not take his full supply. His illustra
tions were extremely clear, and tho
audience seemed to feel the conviction
of his argument.
Mr. Watson closed by saying that
the protective system was tho woudor
and marvel of the world, and that this
nation was first in manufactures nnd
agriculture, greater than all of Ger
many, England and France, the threo
greatest nations of tho world apart
from the United States.

OtfE 15-F00T SPAN GIVES WAY
Charles Matyja's Now Threshing. Ma
chine is ILinRiu Over
A now threshing machino engine
is hanging suspended botwecn water
and sky, midway across the Loup
river bridge south of town. The out
fit, consisting of an engine aad sepa
rator, belongs to Chas. Matyja of Co
lumbus and was being driven by him
at the time tho bridge gave way,
yesterday about 1 o'clock p. m. Ho
was just at the center of the bridge
when an ominous cracking of the
structure warned him of the danger.
An instant later the entire I3-feet span
went down with the engine, the
stringers being all broken but one, nnd
the weight being supported by the
iron rods. The separator still stauds
on the bridge, while tho engine is
dowu abont four feet, being still a
bont 12 feet above the wnter.
Tho water directly under is only
about a foot deep, but ono sjan fur
ther on would carry it over tho maiu
channeL Mr. Matyja was not injured
in tho descent, and he lost no time
in climbing out. Louis Schroeder
has been sent for and as soon as ho can
got his men and machinery togethor
uu win go one anu attempt to raise
tho fallen spaa with the engine. Fears
are entertained that if the separator is
uncoupled and pulled away, the rods
will not sustain the weight.
Several farmers living south of tbe
river who aro iu town today are com
pelled to stay hero until tbe bridge
can bo repaired. All wagon traffic is
of course cut oil", but tho bridgo can
still be crossed on foot. Ed Uahn
and Frank Olcott are among the south
side farmers who are compolled to be

Sherman's Body Found.
The following taken from Monday's
Daily Eee gives a pathetio story of
man known to many Columbus people.
"Shortly after noon today word went
over town tluit a T.ead body had been
seen in the Plat to river a inilo abovo
tho wagon bridgo across the rivor di
rectly south of ihe city. Everyone
seemed at once impressed that it wns
that of Charles A.Shormau.Sohuyler's
former night policeman, who was at
liberty under a $2,000 bond for burg
iarly of tho store of the WelL; Grocery
company about three months ago.
Oniccrs and assistants went at onco
to tho scene and found the body caught
by its chin under a large stick of tim
ber projecting from tho bank, head
submerged, feet down stream nnd lloat
iug free. After much work tho badly
decomposed body, with horribly dis
torted and unrecognizable features,
was secured nnd bronght to the mor
gue. Examination disclosed that the
body was that of Sherman. Numerous
letters, receipts and other papers, a
bunch of keys with a key ring with
name plate being found upon hi per
son. Tfacro was but a small amount
of money in his pockets, $ll.t;o.
Mr. Sherman disappeared Saturday
September 21, but there w&4 not much
talk about it until tho latter part of
the following week.
The body waa seen Friday, when
n couple of boys passing along tho
lank saw what thoy saia afterwards
thought was a dummy, ami in their
play threw clods and sticks at it.
A sad. feature iu connection with
the daath is that his wifo lies at tho
poiut of death. Ho left hor without
a word of intimation a to whore he
was going nnd without a word of
8hcr man's pal, Ted Croshaw, was
sent up for two years, and as Sher
man was considered tho principal it
was generally considered that he
would get tho limit, tea years. I'o
had formerly stood high socially,
was a member of the Odd Fellows,
so it is presumed that with nil that
bearing upon him tho strain was
more than he could stand. He was
reputed to bo worth fIO.000 or f 12,000
and was known to have carried life in
