DOLLIVER FAILS TO BE PRESE1T
Visa-Presidential Caaiidate Maas
Grant Craw aa is Faaad
The rernblican meeting Monday was
of the old-time dimensions. At 2
o'clock Hon. W. A. Prince of Grand
Island addressed a crowd that com
fortably filled the opera house. At
3:10 when the special carrjins: Sena
tor Fairbanss polled in, the house
Mr. Prince discussed state issues in
a masterful way and held the attention
of the audience till the cIom. His
speech was well rooeived and was an
able presentation of the issues of
the state campaign.
County Onairman Hoare introduced
Senator Fairbanks, who proved to
be one of the ablest campaign speakers
that has ever been heard by a Co
lumbus audience. He was the polish
ed scholar, never lacking for well
fitting language, the educated gentle
man and the earnest statesman, all in
one. Mr. FairbanKs said:
Mr. Chairman and Fellow Citizens:
I am glad to greet a Colombus audi
ence for the second time in the discus
sion of political questions. I look back
to my vinit here some years ago with
a very great pleasure and interest.
Tour reception then was more than
generous, moretnan kindly.
The questions I come to discuss to
day are essentially the questions I
camo to discuss then. There is some
thing about republican policies and
republican questions; they do not
change with the season. A good re-
pnblican speech eight years ago wears
just as well today as a speech freshly
made. A good republican speech of
four years ago is suited to the con
ditions of the present hour. A good
speech in the campaign of IStiO, when
we gave Abraham Lincoln to history,
is good in the campaign of 1904 when
we propose to give Theodore Roose
velt foar years more.
It is important that there should be
in charge of oar great national affairs
a party with continuity of purpose, a
larty standing for those great policies
that were good yesterday, are good
today and will be good tomorrow.
For the American people are building
not only for today bnt for the future.
It is important that we hold the high
est place ia commerce, that we hare
the greatest factories, that we be the
greatest factors in trade. If we would
achieve the highest national distinc
tion it is essential that we should
stand for those great fundamental
principles which are as changeless as
the stars above as.
The republican party appeals to the
very intelligence ami patriotism of
the American people on its past record.
Is the republican party worthy of the
continued confidence of the American
people.' Has it not discharged in full
every responsibility resting upon it ?
Has it not stood for those policie s
which essentially staad for the Amer
When I was here a few years ago,
conditions were not as they are today.
I remember as I travelled around and
mat the people they were yet suffering
under the burdens that had been ac
cumulated as tho result of democratic
administration. Toe farmers were
weighed down with obligations and
the people knew sot which way to
turn in their sore distress to find re
lief. Finally they accepted the judg
ment of the republican party ; they ac
cepted the policies of the republican
party; and through its policies the
mortgages have disappeared from the
farms ; or in cases where they have
not been entirely lifted, the interest
charges have been reduced. The bur
dens have been lifted from the should
ers of the people. In IS'.ti, under Ben
jamin Harrison's administration, the
bank deposits of 43 million dollars in
Nebraska were reduced in IS96 under
a democratic administration to SO
mililon dollars. Under the inspira
tion of republican policies, in the ad
ministrations of William McKinley
and Theodore Roosevelt two of the
most successful administrations in all
the splendid history of the republic,
from the morning of George Washing
ton's firrt administration down to this
blessed hour under the administra
tions of these two great presidents,
ander the stimulating effect of the
jreat palicies for which the republi
can party has stood, the bank balanoei
of 30 million dollars in 18 were last
year more than 80 million dollars in
the state of Nebraska.
These exhibits show how the com
mercial currents are a thorough baro
meter of the industrial development
of the state and the people; and the
question now is. Shall the American
Iecple overturn the policies, shall the
American people overturn the admin
istration under which these compar
able results have been acheived? The
answer must be made by us. fellow
citizens; the answer must be made by
us on November 8th. If we tarn oat
policies and administration of the
repabhean party, what policies, what
inistration shall we substitute for
them.- Will they bring us more of
prosperity, more of contentment on the
farm, more of happiness throughout
our country? Will they increase omr
great commercial development? Will
they lilt higher than it now ia the
national prestige of Jmr republic
throughout the world?
It is an important question. 'Those
who would check our cc mmercial de
velopment today would icfliot a vroag
which is not easily remedied : those
who would check for a year 1 lie com
mercial development of our nation
would commit a wrong which is in
calculable ; and those who would for
four years arrest the commercial
development cf this great nation,
those who would stop the wheels of
progress for four years, would inflict
an injury the fall extent of which
there is no genius powerful enongh to
One thing about the republican
party is, it has never put the brakes
upon the wheels of progress. The re
publican party stands for advance
ment, it stands for expansion in do
mestic trade, it stands for expansion
of our commerce in all parts of the
earth. It stands for prosperity in the
commercial centers, for prosperity en
the farms, for prosperity in hamlet,
city and village from one end of the
republic to the other.
Our democratic friends are unfor
tunate in their policies. Their policies
change with the seasons. They put
on and take off political issues as you
would put on and take off a coat.
Democratic leadership and democra
tic party in the state of Nebraska had
a paramount issue in 18: they fled
from it aa from a pestilence in 1900;
and then they had a new issuo in UKU.
The democratic party has undertaken
to throw the mantle of oblivion over
ail that it has stood for in the past,
and raise new leaders and new issues
with which to appeal to the judgment
of the American people. You can
fool the American people sometimees,
but you can't fool them twice with
the same trick.
We cannot follow democratic leader
ship; we cannot adopt democratic
principles, because we cannot believe
in permanent prosperity ander their
principles. They are as changeable
as the sands ot the sea. There can
be no permanent development of our
country in trade or commerce unless
Pew build upon the everlasting and
fundamental prinsiples of the repub
lican party. The manufacturer must
know how to plan for the future ; the
merchant, the laboring man must
know something of the future for him.
That parry which brings to the Amer
ican people, to all classes and all sec
tions, staiblity and confidence is the
party that ia sufficient. That is the
word confidence. There can be no
prosperity without confidence. Capi
tal cannot go on planing for the future
unless it is confident of a return. Con
fidence is planted by the republican
party in the hearts of the American
people. The people have confidence
in Its policies ; they have confidnce
in the protective tariff. Why? Be
cause experience has demonstrated
that it is the one great fundamental
policy that makes for our national
strength and our greatest welfarve.
The republican party has stood for
the gold standard because it is essen
tial to our highest and fullest com
mercial development. It fills the
American people with confidence.
These two essential instruments to
our commercial development are the
fruit of republican statesmanship.
The republican party has stood for
both of these against the assaults of
the democracy. If the democratic
party had been successful years ago
overturning the protective policy,
what would be our condition today?
Our commerce in the great industrial
centers? Where would be the great
market for the product of the farms,
which are making these fields blossom
veritably as the rose?
I am glad to come into aa agricult
ural community and discuss political
The speaker closed with an eloquent
tribute to Presidents McKinley and

Following Mr. McKillip, Mr. Berge
spoke for an hour and a half. He an
nounced that his remarks would not
be along partisan lines, and through
out his speech he carefully avoided the
issues of the campaign. The theme
of his address was that popular gov
ernment has been overthrown and the
vox populi completely stifled by a
combination of machine politics, per
verted legislation and standing army.
"Standing armies are not to give
liberties to the people but to take lib-

erty away from the people," said Mr.
His reference to standing armies
was his only reference to national
issues, lie then uevoteu a consider
able time to a general discussion of
the political history of the state af
Nebraska tor the past 14 years, the
term of his residence here. He sr.f d
that not one good law had been passed
while the' republican party was in
power, and challenged the audience to '
name one law which had been passed
by the republican party in Nebraska
which was not a bad law. Nobody
volunteered any information, and the
speaker then pointed ont the good
things that the fusion party had done
for the state and a few of the bad things
that the republicans had done. At fre
quent intervals throughout his speech
Mr. Berge reminded the audience
that his remarks were strictly non
partisan. This declaration and the
assertion that liberty is dead were
the two principal points of his speech.
Of state issues, Mr. Berge took up
the Brady elevator bill and the revenue
law. His argument on the elevator
question was confined to the statement
that the people asked lor bread (the
Brady bill) and received a stone (the
Ramsay bill). The speaker did not
explain tho difference in the provisions
of the two bilbj.
Coming to the revenue law, Mr.
Berge's only comment was that it
was framed by the republicans in
order to pay the state debt, which
debt the republicans were themselves
responsible for, and that its object
was to make the dear people pay and
let the corporations escaiie. His only
argument in support of this assertion
was the reading of some extracts from
the Platte county records, showing
that certain Platte county farmers
were taxed on their real estate more
in 1904 than they were in 1903, while
the railroads paid no more taxes in
flatte county this year than last. Mr.
Berge seemed to forget for the mo
ment that he' is a candidate for a state
and not a county office, for he made
no comparisons of the increase in tax
ation of the railroads and of other
property for the entire state. His
attention had been called to the fact
that in the whole state the railroad
assessment had been raised TO per
cent and other property only 54 per
cent. He did not refer to this. He
did not say whether the Platte county
land in question was taxed too high
this year or too low last year, or
whether it might have increased in
value since last year.
Mr. Berge seemed at one point al
most to make a mistake, though he
made a good recovery. He had been
saying that whenever any party is
continued in power for a number of
years, a selfish political ring is formed
and the party management will get
out of the hands of the people and into
the hands of the bosses, and then the
party no longer has any claim on any
self-respecting voter The only way,
he continued, for the people to get in
the game again is to turn the rascals
ont. "It may be mighty hard on the
politicians but a mighty good thing
for the people and the taxpayers," he
mid ; and just at that moment a
thought seemed to stirke him and he
added with some haste, "lam talk
ing about the state now ; not about
your county here, because I am not
posted on that." The audience dis
played no enthuiasm at this point.and
the speaker continued with his speech.
On the railroad pass question, Mi.
Berge showed that the custom is con
demned by all fair men of all political
parties and is practiced by the other
93 per cent of ail political parties. In
alluding to the pass question Mr.
Berge looked straight ahead and did
not seem to take note of the presence
of the distinguished galaxy of local
stars who occupied the platform be
Mr. Berge closed his remarks with
the observation that it was a non-par-tisan
speech which he was making.
The audience was attentive and
good-natured throughout and was
largo enough to comfortably fill the
Fire at Platte Center.
The large implement house of Mrs.
K. A. Kehoe of Platte Center was
completely consumed by fire at a late
hour Monday. The store contain
ed about 8.000 worth of implements
which were insured for only $3,500.
The fire is supposed to have been
set by an incendiary, and it is believed
the guilty party will be found out,
though there seems to be no direct
evidence at this time.
The implement store stood within
thirty feet of Mr. Kehoe's grain ele
vator which was saved only by the
effective work of the local hose com
pany and citizens.
Assault and Battery.
Anthony Dolinski, 19 years old was
arrested on complaint of Mervin
Knntzelman Tuesday morning on the
charge of assault and battery on the
Knntzelman farm, and tried before
County Jndge Ratterman.
Dolinski claimed selfdefense but was
found guilty and fined 3 and costs.
Gas Plant Franchise.
The city council met last night and,
after making some changes in the or
. diDailC8, which had been read twice,
read it the third time and passed it.
As the ordinance now stands, it
granted to B.B. Pickhart an exclusive
franchise for five years for street
lightB, same to be furnished at 925
each per year for a mininum of 250
lights or $23.50 each for a minium of
7a lights. For private lighting or
heating purposes the ordinance Axes
a maximum charge of 91.50 per 1000
cubic feet. It requires that work on
the plant begin in 30 days and that
the plant be completed and . one 'mile
of pipe to be laid within 90 days from
the passage of the ordinance.
The street lamp and poles are to be
furnished at the cost of Pickhart.
The cost of the plant is estimated at
950.000 and Mr. Pickhart wired City
Attorney Cornelius this morning that
the contractors were ready to go to
work, if the ordinance was passed.
While the ordinance was amended
so as to reduce the maximum cost of
gas from $1.75 to 91.50 per thousand,
and the term of the franchise reduced
from six to five years, it is believed
the change will be accepted by Mr.
While there is a variety of opinion
as to the advisability of passing this
ordinance, and some difference of
opinion among the members of the
council who have investigated the
subject. City Attorney Cornelius ex
presses the view that the city's rights
are thoroughly safeguarded.
Councilmen Clark, Sheldon, Galley
and Greisen inv .dtigated the plants at
Lincoln and Seward, and C. O. Gray
investigated the Norfolk plant.
Board of Supervisors.
The board of supervisors are still in
session, ivingattention to the pats
age of bills and matters of minor im
portance. Today they turned down a
proposition to sell the county an ad
ding machine and are giving their at
tention to the proposed drainage ditch.
They will probably adjourn tomorrow.
Mrs. Kehoe's Lorn $18,000.
Mrs. Kehoe's loss 'in the fire that
destroyed her implement house at
Platte Center is estimated at 918.000,
instead of $10,000 as reported yester
day. Her insurance is $3,500.
