ROOSEVELT MEANT WHAT HE

WW Take Trip Abroad, and Then
yto FlUMOwt He Will
will not peradthis bum to go before
the aezt natjnaal republican conven
tion, in my judgment," said -one of
the bic leaders oY toe republican party
this week. I believe Mr. Roosevelt
meant what he said a the night ot
November C. 1934. whea he was
elected president, that he would not
be a candidate to aucceed himself.
That he regarded his election as an
election to a second term and that at
the.eed of his term he would retire
to arvate life, I nave every reason
to believe that he is of the same op
"But that Joes not say that he will
not again be a candidate for the high
oflce of president. My opinion is that
at the coming national convention a
man will be nominated" who. in many
ways, will reflect the Roosevelt idea.
Whether that man will be Secretary
Taft, Vice President Fairbanks or
come one yet undrempt of I do not
know, bat I am profoundly convinced
that whoever is nominated will be sat
isfactory to the present chief excu
tive. "With someone else in the White
House I can now see a candidate that
might prove to be mighty interesting
and la some particulars unknown in
the annals of our political history.
v "I happen to know that Mr. Roose
velt desires, above all things, to make
a tour of the world a la Bryan. Should
the president indulge the thought,
that is very close to him. and travel
with Mrs. Roosevelt on a tour, of re
flection and observation through the
older civilizations of both east and
west, kings and queens, emperors and
shahs will pay to him that honor due
to an ex-president of the United States
mid Theodore Roosevelt the man. He
vrill take two years in which to 'girdle
the earth. and if ray guess comes true
he will land in the country of his birth
just about the time the national re
publican convention is to convene in
the summer of 1912. And having had
four years of some other president,
the people will just naturally demand
the nomination of Theodore Roose
velt, and the people usually get what
they go after.
FINAL WEEK OF CONGRESS.
Appropriation Bills to Have the Call
in Both of the House.
Washington Aside from approp
riation bills and conference reports.
lie ship subsidy bill is the only meas
ure of general importance that is likely
to receive the attention of the house,
and the Aldrich financial bill probably
the only one that will receive the at
tcation of the senate during this, the
closing week of the last session of the
Fifty-ninth congress. It is Senator
Aid rich's intentions to press his bill
for consideration whenever opportu
nity cflers. and he Is still hopeful of
success, notwlthstandiag the opposi
tion, the congested condition of busi
ness and the limited time left. The
house friends of ship subsidy also pro
fess themselves as hopeful, but they
admit that every day that goes by
without action lessons their chances.

ELEVEN TAKEN PROM WRECK.
Some Sunft vera Rescued-From
Hook of Holland Largely as a re
sult of the-courage and determination
of Prince Henry of the Netherlands,
the prince consort, that which at flrst
appeared to be an impossible task,
has been achieved and the heroic and
unflinching efforts of the Data lifeboat
men have succeeded In rescuing alive
eleven more of the survivors of the
Steamer Berlin. . -
The gallant Dutcn lifeboat men were
rewarded after more than thirty
hours of hard and dangerous work.
Buffeted and driven back time after
time they refused to relax their at
tempts to rescue the handful of ship
wrecked people, and finally at 3:30
o'clock Friday afternoon -the receding
tide and some improvement hi the
weather having made the conditions
easier, their long fight was crowned
Although several of the persons res-.
cuod were in the last stages of ex
haustion, they are on the road to re
covery and some of them have been
able to tell of their awful experiences.
Two women and a child are still on
board the wreck, but it is feared that
they are dying. Nothing daunted, how
ever, the brave Dutchmen are prepar
ing to make further desperate efforts
to rescue these unfortunates.
When daylight broke a handful of
survivors of the Great Eastern Rail
way company's steamer Berlin, from
Harwich to Rotterdam, which was
wrecked off the Hook of Holland,
could still be seen clinging to the
after part of the steamer. The efforts
made to rescue this survivors were
continued throughout the night, but
proved futile, owing to the furious
seas and heavy snowstorm, which
raged all night long, rendering It im
possible for the tugs or lifeboats to
approach the wreck, over which
mountainous seas continued to dash
with terrific fury. So intense was the
cold that It was thought that those
who were still alive on the remnants
when darkness came must have been
frozen to death, but some six or eight
persons appear to have survived the
terrible experience of the last twenty

DISASTER OFFDUTCH PORT
ONE LIFE SAVED OUT OF A HUN
DRED AND FORTY-THREE.
Life Savers Are Compelled to Stand
by and Watch the Passengers and
London The worst disaster for
many years in the history of the busy
cross-channel traffic between England
and the continent occurred during a
violent gale shortly, before 6 o'clock
Thursday morning, when the Rotter
dam mail steamer Berlin, from Har-
w'ilch to Hook of Holland, having
safely weathered the hurricane, was
wrecked as it was entering port. With
one single exception all Its passen
gers and crew, numbering 143 per
sons, lost their lives or are clinging
hopelessly to the wreck.
The terrific seas broke up the
steamer with sucn awful suddenness
that all efforts to save life appear to
have been utterly hopeless. Late in
the evening it was reported that a few
survivors were clinging to the wreck,
but as the heroic efforts all day of the
lifeboat crews had failed to reach
them little hope that they will be
No cause has been assigned for
the disaster and it probably .never will
be known how the steamer came to
miss the channel. It is conjectured
hat some derangement of the engine
or steering gear may have rendered
the vessel uncontrolable. Captain
Precious of the Berlin had a good rec
ord of fourteen years' service. Tb
list of passengers on the fated steamer
was lost and all the names of those
who were on board have not yet been

A terrific sonthwestely gale was

quickly poundeu the vessel to pieces.
It broke in two, its. forepart sinking

brief space of time clustered on the
after part. Then the afterpart slipped
off the ledge and disappeared ha the

. Pollard Must Put It Back.
Washington The judiciary commit
tee of the house on Thursday reported
on the resolution- of. Representative
Pollard which required, that committee
to investigate and report upon his
right to the salary paid him by the
sergeant-at-arms for the period from
March 4. 1905, to the date of his elec
tion, July 18, 1905. '.The conclusion of
the committee is that Mr. Pollard had
no predecessor in the Fifty-ninth con
gress, and therefore the statute under
which the salary was paid did not ap
ply. The money will be paid back.
Prohibition Bill Killed.

MR SMOOT KEEPS HIS SEAT
MOTION TO EXCLUDE HIM FROM
THE SENATE DEFEATED.
Numerous Speeches For and Against
the Senator Since the Resolution
to Unseat Him Was Reported.
Washington Senator Reed Smoot
retains is seat in the United States
senate. This was decided Wednesday
by a vote of 42 to 28, ending a long
contest. Eighteen senators were
paired, making the actual standing on
the resolution 51 for and 37 against.
Senator Smoot did not vote, and Sen
ator Wetmore was absent and not
The Smoot resolution was called up
soon after the senate convened. Every
seat in the galleries was filled and
during the actual voting the standing
room on the floor of the senate was
crowded by members of the house and
employes of the senate. Seldom has
there been a proceeding affecting the
standing of a senator that has attract
ed so much marked attention. In the
audience were representatives of a
number of prominent women's organ
izations, which have been active in cir
culating and having presented petitions
of remonstrance against Mr. Smoot.
These women secured many thousands
of signatures to their petitions.
There have been numerous speeches
made for anu against Senator Smoot
since the resolution to unseat him was
reported from the committee on priv
ileges and elections, just prior to the
adjournment of congress last year.
When the voting began Mr. Smoot
retired to the republican cloak room
to await the result.
Senator Hopkins offered his amend
ment to the committee resolution and
it was adopted. Under tMs a two-thirds
vote would have been necessary to
carry the resolution, which declared
that Mr. Smoot is not entitled to his
seat. Senator Carmack then offered a
substitute for the amended: committee
resolution, a simple resolution declar
ing that Senator Smoot should be "ex
pelled." The effect of this would be
to displace the committee resolution if
adopted and t was -defeated.
Then came the vote on the commit
tee resolution as amended, which was
Resolved,. Two-thirds of toe senat
ors present concurring therein, that

created the strongest
among the Interested parties, although
the movements of procedure have not

ands have telegraphed President
Roosevelt and the Hawaiian represent
atives in the house reporting the seri
ousness of the injury which will be
caused to their rights and Interests by

aware, however, that under the circum
stances the only alternative is to calm
ly resign themselves to the situation,
hoping that the government can ar
range with the government authorites
to reduce the sacrifice in the interest
of Japanese immigrants to a mini
mum. They regret the enw law, lest the
San Francisco people, glorying In their
success, should asume an overbearing
News of this kind would only tend to
injure Japanese susceptibilities, which
President Roosevelt has specially been
careful to avoid.

The meeting also cabled to the Jap
anese foreign office as follows:
"The Hawaiian Japanese are unani

"We have received no official informa

newspaper reports are correct I am
sure the Japanese people as a whole
will be pleased with the terms. We
have every confidence in President

Dr. S. K.
Warns Against Hog Meat,
Lincoln Pork eaten raw or not
thoroughly cooked. Ia the opinion of
JJr. S. K. Spalding, state health ua
specter, is a danger to human life.
Dr. Spalding has Issued the following
word of caution:
"The recent cases of trichinosis oc
carriag ia this state at Hastings aad
Fremont emphasize the fact that pork
eaten raw. or even not thoroughly
cooked, is dangerous to life.
"No law could be passed by the
legislature that would compel a bac
teriological examination of every car
cass that waa killed for home con
sumption, and it is only la this way
the trichina can be discovered and
the meat products condemned.
"For this reason we must depend
upon the press of the state to make
known to the people In the most pub
lic way the danger there la hi eating
raw pork. This knowledge should also
be taught in all schools, aad a full dis
cussion of the subject then be had la
our homes. S. K. SPALDING.

Growers Want Contracts.
Calbertson Beet growers ia the
vicinity of Calbertson are desirous of
making contracts with the beet sugar
factories, but It seems the manufac
turers are not out after contracts as
heretofore. For the last four'or five
years there has been quite a contest
between the American Beet Sugar
company and the Standard Beet Sugar
company to secure these contracts
from the farmers to grow beets and
every spring the territory was
thoroughly canvassed by agents. This
year the American company is in the
company doing business in Nebraska
it will not canvass the territory to
get an the coutiacts It wants. The
beet growing industry has reached a
stage of development that it will be a
serious loss to the farmers if they -cannot
find a market for their beets.
Between 300 and 409" carloads of sugar
beets have been shipped each season
from this point to the factories at
Leavitt and Grand Island, and while
some of the growers have objected to
the terms of 190T contracts, these ob
jections wonld not appreciably affect
the acreage that would be planted
this year, provided contracts could be
made with some reliable concern.
