provides for the security and j > ymcnt of re
bate vouchers , Issued by Incorporated com-
panlec , irunts , * socUtlons , Ilmu , etc. , directIng -
Ing the auditor of public account * to see that
the amounts due are properly collected and

Sloore has collected J5Z.7-17.I2 from the Dis
tilling nnd CattlefeedltiR company of
I'eoria. 111. , which Is the Whisky trust , and
< leposlted It In the First National bank of
Omaha , to be distributed lo the 2,582 voucher
.holders who are Nebra ka patrons of this
'trust. All but n email part ot thli amount
! haa been saved tor and paid out to the
holders of these certificates and the balance
due will bo paid on the presentation of tbo
vouchers as they provide.
Chapter 15 of the session laws of 1833 pro
vides for the appointment by the auditor of
two special deputies to examine the odlces
of the ninety county treasurers , of the state
nt least once In two years. The law went
Into effect August 1 , 1R93 , and Mr. Moore ap
pointed two expert treasury accountants , who
have carefully examined sixty-eight counties
and have filed duplicate copies of Ihelr re
ports with UK ; county authorities , thus en
abling every citizen to knoxv the true condi
tion ot his country treasury.
The excellence nnd efficiency of the De
partment of Banking speak praises for the
entire hoard , ot which Mr , Moore Is a mem
ber , as well as all employes.
The State Printing board , ol which Mr.
Moore Is a member , nt Its last letting of
contracts Jor two years for the public printIng -
Ing , awarded the contracts In the spring of
1693 at the second bidding- for a total of
$8.211 , being a saving of $7,499 on the lowest
bids made under the first advertisement ,
which was rejected.
During his Incumbency In office Mr. Moore
has -had separate , thorough and complete ex
aminations made , In the home oHlces ot
twenty different domestic and foreign Insur
ance companies , by expert , accountants , ap
pointed for that purpose , of all of the allalra
of those companies , and It hag all been done
without cost. He has recently corresponded
with the auditing and accounting officers of
each of the states and territories of. the
union concerning their methods of collecting
revenue , and he has carefully gathered a
very large amount of valuable Information
which , ho hopes to present to the legislature
to aid It In perfecting our revenue laws
wherever it may be deemed , proper.
The books of the auditor are deemed to be
the property of the people of the state and
that at all reasonable hours any citizen has a
perfect Tight to know what they contain.

The acqualutauccB of Israel Frank -Mid W.
J. Broatch are dolns a eood deal of laugh
ing -about the unsuccessful attempt of Israel
to hold n "grand political mass meeting" far
tlta Second ward at KcssJer's hall last .Friday
night. Israel had
announced the meeting
through dodgers , and the announcement was
made that several speakers would make ti
dresses , W. J. Broatch being placed at ll e
head oftthe list. lYhen the time came Israel
and two others -were present. They chatted
pleasantly for half an hour , when two or
three more came in , and one of them , & can
didate , offered to set up the beer. He man-
aKd to get together the proprietor and about
forty boys , democrats and populists , and the
beer -was had. This seemed to have an en
livening effct and Rrohtcb then got up and
made a short Majors speech to the motley
crowd , and then It was thought more beer
would be the thing. The faucet came open
and the beer came , but the expected crowd
remained away. ' The general sentiment was
that while Broatch and Frank might draw
beer , they could not draw .a crowd , and the
Idea of a great Majors meeting : was given up.

- St. Edwards : "The course takpn by The
Bee In support of Holcomb meets with my
approval. I hope you will push the work for
honest state government. A clean sweep
and thorough hmisecleanlng at Lincoln this
fall would. In my opinion , be largely due to
the Influence of The Bee. "
Miller The course of The Bte In Ihe pres-
cntcampalgn meets my View to n charm. I
rejoice to think that one of our leading state
papers has the courace and manliness to
come out and tell the truth , I tun a strong
republican , but I fall to see any rcpubl'can-
Ism In a state ticket that Tom Majors stands
at the head of. I am an old veteran , having
served four ytars , lacking atxtecn days. In
the Sixth Nov.- York cavalry , but I don't
propose to vote lor a perjured villain for
governor of the state ot Nebraska , even If
he was an old cavalry man. Judge Holcomb
Is the man tor me. A good many republi
cans lu my neighborhood think as I do.
They can't go Tom Majors.
Wayne I am very much In accord with
your position. I shall certainly not vole lor
Majors , but for Holcomb.
Talmage Your course meets with my ap
proval. and although I have bees a republican
all my life 1 cannot support such a man as
Gibbon Your course in support of Holcomb
Is commendable. There are a few here who
will support Majors.
Hlverdale I am heartily In favor of your
position , anti I am unqualifiedly In favor of
Holcomb and against Majors. Two other
voters in this family are against Majors.
Rurr I am a republican , but will support-
Holcomb for governor ,
Wlloox I think I will vote for .Holcomb ,
but I am sorry that the republicans nomi
nated such a man as Majors , as you have
proved him to be a .fraud.
Salem As a republican I approve of the
course of The Dee in supporting Holcomb.
There are a number of the republicans in this
vicinity who also approve of the position of
The Bee.
Unadllla : "Your view of MnJors Is all

our next Kovcrnor. "
Alda : " I heartily approve of the course
of The Dee and wish there were more men
like you In Nebraska. My neighbors are
republicans , but will vote for Holcomb. "
Uutte : " 1 decidedly approve ot the posi

afford to seat In her gubernatorial chair
the tool of any ring or corporation. There
ars two votes for Judge Holeomb In my
hodsehoia. "
Wllcox "My father and myself will both
vote for Holcomb. People speak , well "of
him at this place. "
Tflden : "I have almost always Toted the

port Holcomb this time , _ aswill all' farmers

Alda : "I am a > .republican and. lixry. al
ways supported republican principles , having
voted lot * A. Llncoln' 18C4 whllo In line ot
duty facing an enemy who was trying to
destroy the grandest government on earth.
Hut if there Is an enemy In the republican
party who seeks to mislead th& pe'oplefor
his own greed Into the hands of corporate
powers , lot God's sake lot's muzzle the crit
ter In his Infancy. You 'have a multitude
of farmers in th ? republican"party. . We
have many pickets on guard , but I am sorry
to say there are a few who uro disloyal to
just principles. "

The De-e has taken. for Holcomb , and I Icnow
several republicans that will vofe for him
Wo . . have got to elect him to save the people
from ruination. " ' f
Crelghton : " I approve the course you
have taken In The Omaha Bee , and espec
ially in regard to Holcomb
, All U > e re
publicans I have talked to think the .same. "
Lincoln Your manly stand In this cam
paign has been and Is commended by every
honest man. Irrespective of party. You are
entitled to the deep respect , and lasting obli
gation of every man who- wishes to see the
right triumph. Do not be discouraged by
vitllflcation and slander and the lies of a
subsidized press. Wherever there Is a spark
of honor or Integrity In the hri-asts of men
your attitude/ and strength on these questions
and during tills campaign deserve the high
est commendation , gratitude , love and re
spect of men , Irrespective of party , who - desire
sire that right shall triumph and not might ,
corporate corruption and greed.
JIudlson Your position 'In regard to the
election of governor IB fully approved ,
Though I have "been a republican since 18(11 (
I will vote for Holcomb.
Savage 1 approve your course all through
this campaign. I have no love for the pops ,
but would rather see their whole ticket
elected than Tom Majors. I was an antislavery -
slavery man until the g. o. p. was born , and
have stood by It ever since , nnd Intend to as
long as 1 live , but I can't and -won't vote
for the B. & T > 1. candidate.
Lyons Your course meets my approval ex
actly , and one of my sons who Is also a
republican , says be cannot vote for Majors' .
Valparaiso I heartily 'approve" your sup
port of Judge HolQomb./attd myself and two
sons will vote for him.
Stella I , am very well satisfied with your
course in regard to Majors. I know of at
least six republicans who will not vote for
him , and Nemalia county will go several ]
hundred pop'ullst majority ,
Avoca I am a straight republican but
will not support Majors. If the republican
party cannot put up a better man than
Majors It means certain death for the party. :
The bosses must not think they can nomin
ate anybody and then crack the whip and
make all republicans vote for him. I think
when the election Is over they will nnd they
have made a great mistake ,
Alda I approve of your course In regard
to Majors. If he Is what you claim he Is
rti do not see how any republican could vote
for him. He Is the only exception on the
ticket that I will make , however ,
tlC Humboldt I heartily endorse and appre
ciate tlio fight of The Bee against corporate
monopolies ot whatever description , and
hope tliat the ballots cast thli fall -will teach
the : corporal loin that the people will consent
to bo robbed no longer.

It -evident lhat Majors U a member In

the latt twelve * or fourteen yean.
Madison Every fair minded man must
appreciate the stand you nave taken for good
aud honest government. We have certainly
had ' enough of the other sort in the past few
year * ,
Tllden Your attitude toward uolcomb
meets my hearty approval. Thcr& are sev
eral very Influential republicans here work
ing against Majors. This county will give
Holcomb a large majority. If
Oakland Your position meets my approval
and myself and one more' ' la my bouse will
vote far Holcamb. In o doing we hope to
kelp elect a man vrho will give u * honest
government and help the cr dlt of the stale.
Down with ring rule and rascal *
Never before In the iititory of Nebraska
has BO shameless an effort been laadg by
th railroad companies to Intimidate and
carrce employee ai in th presint campaign.
The raUro.itlr iiyuiairerg learned early In the
campaign twit I they could not win by fair
means , nrul wnseijuently they have resorted
to browbeating shippers and coercing1 cm *

every rallrMd'to'tha state Is engaged In this
work of Intimidation * The Mltcourt Pnclflc

Every employe on these railroads from sec

Last Wednesday afternoon the local freight
agent for the IJnlqn Pacific personally ques
tioned each one ot the fifty or sixty employes
in the freight depot In this city as to their
politics , ami especially as lo their Intent-on
of voting Her or against Majors. He had
each cmployo'8 name sot down In a pass )
book. He first asked each man his politics
and Ihcn asked hllil for whom he proposed to
veto for governor. If the man replied that
he Intended to veto Jor .Majors he recslved
no further attention , It the employe dd
not know whom hewould vote for ho was
given to understand In so many words that
it would be to lilB Interest to vote for
Majors. And jt the man answered that ho

understood tliat hewould consult his own In

his mind before election.

the Union Pacific and asked him in regard
to the action of the local representatives of
the company In coercing voters , that official
promptly disclaimed all knowledge of the
natter and stated that the local agent acttJ.
entirely without authority and upon his own
responsibility. He staled further that the
order issued years ago , permitting all em
ployes to vote their own convictions , was
still In force and effect. He did not ex
plain , however , why ono of the highest ofll-
c'als of the company was traveling over the
line Instructing employes how to vote at the
coming election.
The D. & AI. .Journal's paid scribbler from
Washington is .still endeavoring to discredit
The Bee's proposition to submit the charges
against .Majors to a committee of prominent
Omaha clergymen. He has printed alleged
statements from these ministers regarding
the controversy and has so twisted and dis
torted the remarks of the reverend gentle
men that they have been compelled to enter
a general protest. Rev , Frank Crane called
at The BCD dlflce to' state- that the remarks
attributed to him by theJournal's cor
respondent were distorted from their true
The efforts 'of the Majors crowd to parry
the ellocts of tlie proposition are extremely
against him. ' Tom Majors Old not dare face
the charges thu't ' have been brought against
htm. He - makesthe
- thespecious plea that he
could nqt take the tlmo from the campaign.
Tha facts arc that the evidence Is all in
documentary form. The whole list of charges
could have "befen presented and considered
within- few hours. Majors claimed that he
would have been compelled to go to Wash
ington to secMre"-testimony to prove that he
Is innocent ' 'of ' ttie charges mader against
him with reference to his record as a con
tingent congressman. The facts arc that he
was In Wasl/in / lon during the whole of the
tlmo when hlsT'redord was being Investigated
by a congressional committee , nnd after he
had presented every evidence at his dis
posal that cdminlllee ' reported the following
Wo report 'tlit-Before , that Tlidmas J.
Majors Is responsible for thfe misinformation
which -Inductxifthis commltteo-to make the
report of April 1 , 1BS2 ( No , 911 , first session

aided therein IjsvS. J. Alexander , secretary
of state of tfeur/lskn , by Pat O. Hawes nnd
Dr. 1 * . Sell wehKJ and George II. Rcborts ,
And we rep'ow IlilU the testimony of Pavls '

resolution :
K isol5Wd.That.tli& . cleric of this house be ,
and he Ts iTIrcby ; teaulretl' tft furnish a
printed copy of'wlft rGport.Mncludlnf ; the
evidence , to elich ofrftlie following oftioers :
The district attorney ot the "District of Co-
Idmlrtn , the a'ttbinSy1 generaf'of the Hutted
States urirt the's-overnor-df .tlie state of Ne-
braska.ttmt , thed' may take such action as
they may deem suitable to the gravity of
tlio wrongs committed by the persona whose
conduct is in this "conclusion" set forth.
The foregoing report and resolution was
adopted by a republican congress -without
a dissenting vote. If Majors could not pro
duce enough evidence In his own behalf to1
prove that ho , was not guilty of the charges
how could he expect to find at Washington
now the evidence necessary to prove that
there was no foundation for the misconduct
with which he was charecd ?
The records in regard to the other charges
made against him are equally accessible. The
committee could have investigated them
without leaving the coom. The proofs spoke
for themselves. The fact yet remains that
Majors simply did not dare face the charges
at the risk pf havlrjg seven leading ministers
of Omaha report upon their truth. The propo
sition to submit the charges to the commutes
of ministers hit Majors In a vulnerable spot
and ho dared not run the risk of accepting It.
Reports of the Intention of the Major ?
campaigners to colonize the state with Illegal
voters continue to come In. The railroad
managers who are assltlnc .the project have
also adopted a new and altogether original
plan , never before attempted In Nebraska ,
but used effectively In eastern states last
year. Voters who are not In sympathy with
the attempt to clect.MaJo'rs will be given free
passes to points outsldo of the state or to
distant points In the state , with the expecta
tion that they will use them and thus be
away Irom IOIIIQ on election day. A promi
nent business man In an Interior town of the
state writes : .
"I have Just learned from a reliable source
that a systematic effort at emigration of
voters will take place about election time ,
Voters who canriot be Induced to support
certain candidates will be urged to accept
transportation for themselves and their fam
ilies for visiting and business tours to points
far enough away to preclude their presencs
at home on election day. "
Referring to the colonization scheme , the
Wahoo Bra saysi
It la nn open secret that the B. & M. Is
temporarily colonizing out-of-the-stato citi
zens on abandoned farms In the western
part of the state In order to vote them for
Majors. Jt is , also known , nnd no attempt
Is made to deny It. that they have dis
tributed the men employed in bulldlnK
branch .lines In the west this summer ( and
which ure novr completed ) throughout the
country districts in order to secure so many
votes for their -pet candidate , The modus
operand ! is to Jiliice two or three extra men
on the section , and when election day comes
the section t > oss will walk them up to the
polls and they will cait their votes In the
interest of their masters. After election
the poor dupHsnswIll be discharged and

It will beseen from a study of the above1
ticket that the republican candidates are op
posed really < by the combined strength of
thoi democrats and populists ; while the pro
hibitionists , who are trying to spread dissat
isfaction in the ranks of the party , will no
doubt draw more votes from them than cither
of the other parties.
It is the
combination that causes not a
few heads to toss -
unea-slly on the pillow ,
though the potency of the combination will
be much more noticeable In the results of
the county elections than on the state ticket.
As was predicted early in the campaign , it
still seems that the republicans will
nine ot the congressional districts , and lllsely
ten , with a possibility of the entire eleven.
This latter Is now the desideratum for which
they are working , the election of the state
ticket being conceded , and which all the
opposing elements arc trying to defeat.
Karly In the campaign , after the first blare
of republican trumpets had sounded the tocsin
of war. it became evident from the oyster-
like silence maintained by the democrats and
populists that a scheme was brewing tn en
compass the G. O. P , In de'eat. but what It
reallv was did not become known till the
conventions had been held , and they showed a
their hand by a fusion deal , followed out In
nearly every county In the state without
The adherents of the pronlbltlonlsl party
proclaimed from the steeplctop early , that
all might know where they stood , that they
would put full state , congressional and county
tickets In the field "and elect them. " But
nobody took them seriously , this claim .hav
ing been made In the best of faith many
times before and invariably falling to
terialize ,
The real fight Is In the Second district ,
now represented by Hon. W , L Hayes , demo
crat. This district la
composed of Iowa ,
Johnson , Muscatlne , Scott , Clinton and Jack
son counties , and the democracy , which has
practically always carried the district , Js
badly split over the postofllce appointments
made at the Instnnco of Judge Hayes , the
German democrats claiming that in these
matters , as In the appointment of n < ] Hunter
at Dea Molnes against Colonel Elboeck , a
prominent German democrat and editor of the
Staats-Anzelger , they have been -entirely ig
nored and left out In the cold by those whom
they very largely aided In securing election
This is strenuously denied by Hayes , and a
letter has even been published
be from him , to the effect that purporting - to
anybody -who
says he made
a slnglo appointment for other
reasons than those of personal fitness for
the clace "is a liar" and he will not allow
such statements to go unpunished. These
charxes are the main thing that Is being
used against him
In the campaign , aside
front his record as a representative In
George M , Curtis , a wealthy manufacturer
of Clinton , is Judge Hayes1 prtncjpal op
ponent , being the republican nominee. None
of the other candidates have made sufficient
noltt. to be heard up hero .vet. The main
cry against him Is "Millionaire CurtU. " who
the opposition charges "made his money by
toadying to pools , trusts and combines , and
, therefore , not a man who could represent
properly the laboring men in congress. "
How much effect these chargoj n-lil have Is
dllllciilt to estimate , though they do not
generally c-irry much -weight. Uut this Is
an ago of the working man , when evi-rjbody
bids for hla vote , promising inoro than the
other fellow , and If the autocrat
the candidate's political des
tinies Imagines that ho " 111 be played false
he is chary about lending his tr
support to dli
either. Curtis has , however , been n large hi
employer of labor for a number of years and IIwl
has gotten along peaceably wtb ; his men. wl
without a strike or a lockout. "
State Superintendent of Public Instruction
Henry Sabln has just returned 'torn n trip
that district and ipeahlrtg ot politics down
that way said : "Curtis li po'.ng to be
elected la spite of fate. lie's Ihu popular All
man the one everybody It talking altfut I
aud tbere Is not the slightest ground for a
fear that he will ha defeated by Hayes. "
Out In Ihc Ninth dlitrict , comprising
Ada.r , Outhrle. AuJnbon , CASH , Montgomery ,
Mills , I'oltawaltamle , Shelby and Harrison
counties , the situation Js the Mine only dif
ferent. The dtttrlct Is fEpmrnied

Weaver ia a. ma-n who has crown old In poll-
tlcal .service , Is of pleasing address , n logical
anil nble speaker , and on his coniblnitlon
ticket Is making Ihe race very close nnd ex
citing. The republicans claim that McKln-
ley's trip through the district nlono gained
them several thousand votes. In 1S90 lha
district gave a democratic plurality ot 1,343 ,
while In 1892 It went republican by a plural
ity ot 2,478 , the populists ami prohibitionists. ,
of their antecedents , polling 1,29 $ and 3,017
votes In the same > ear.
F. It , Conaway , president ot Iho Stnt
League of Ilepubllcnn clubs and elate prin
ter-elect , has just returned from an organiza
tlon tour Inwhich ho vlsltcil every district
In the : slate. HP said : "We will carry
every : district In Iowa by a safe vole , with
good pluralities In the Second and Eleventh ,
and In all the others ( hero wilt be majorities
greater than In recent years. Hagcr's
plurality will not he less than 3,000. and I'd
stake D farm on It. Curtis Is a sure winner
In ths Second , and will be Rifely elected ,
though he will vo * have a very Urge plural
ity , comparatively , as C.OOO . democratic-
jority I * a great deal to overcome , "
Klelcher Howard , chairman of the demo
cratic state central committee nnd member of
HIP slate pharmacy commission , hasn't up to
date seemed much Inclined to talk. He Is
running a quiet campaign and "If he can't
win , he la goltif ; to hold the mnjorltles down
to ths lowest possible limit , " as Secretary
Bpatildlng of the pharmacy commission and
a close .friend of Mr. Howard's , stiys. They
confidently expect , however , so far ns can
l ) learned from conversation with them ,
that Hayes and Weaver will bo elected.
Outside of these two districts there Is little -
tlo contest In the stale campaign this fall
nnd Interest therein has slumped. When
there Is little contcM , there Is little Interest
nnd the republican leaders profess lhat their
greatest fear U that the adherents of the
party will consider It such a foregone con
clusion that they will f.ill to go to the. polls
nml vote , allowing the democratlc-popullatlc
combine to "steal a slay-at-homc victory. "

NEW YORK , Oct. 21 Sunday is always a
quiet day with politicians and dullness was
the feature of the political headquarters In
this city today. The work of correspondence
was carried on as usual , but there wcro few
visitors nnd no signs of activity , e.xcept nt the
Grant headquarters , where Mr. Grant's letter
of acceptance of the Tammany nomination
for mayor was made public. Colonel
Strong's headquarters wcro closed during the
day and Colonel Strong himself was not In
evidence except to a few of his closest sup
At republican headquarters a long dispatch
was received from Albany nnd was at once
given out for publication , to the effect that
the employes In the state departments there
were -employed In preparing and distributing
thousands of campaign documents In the In
terest of the democrats. The dispatch says
In part :
"The campaign work which should be done
by the democratic slate committee lias been
forced upon the state department and paid
for from the state treasury. These docu
ments are printed by State Printer James 1) )
Lyons and a large force of the department
clerks are taken from their duties to the
Eta to to shove In Individual envelopes Hill's
campaign documents. "
The very large registration of voters in
this city has been Iho .subject of much dis
cussion and speculation with both parties ,
each claiming the advantage from the addi
tional votes that will probably be polled on
election day.
At the state democratic headquarters on
Twenty-third street there was a peneral foci-
Ing of elation over the results of the regis
tration , The leaders agree In saying that
It meant the overwhelming defeat of Tam
many Hall. Francis M. Scott said that In
his opinion Mr. Grant would not get mor
than 100,000 votes. Ho believed the soclal-
Istlc-lahor-popullst-prohlbltlon vote would not
ba over 20,000 , which would leave in the
vicinity of 245,000 votes to bo divided be
tween Grant and Strong , thus allowing 45,000
plurality for Strong. This was the substance
of a computation made by the various lead
ers early In the day.
The 4recent arrest of sqveral hundred men
/or alleged fraudulent , rpglstratlqn , Itis be
lieved , has a deterrent effect , and the- large
registration considered a big- Increase In
men entitled to cast their ballots. District
Attorney John R. Fellows today , however ,
expressed himself as not at all surprised at
the registration. Ho thought there
nothing extraordinary In Jt , and said he
could see nothing substantial to be derived
for cither side from It.
The chief Interest of the present week
among republican centers Is the appearance

part of the various organizations here to
make public their allegiance to their res pec
live tickets. Today , however , the executive
board of the grand lodge of the Independent
Order , Sons of Benjamin , resolved not to
permit the ueo of its name In connection
with politics. This decision was arrived at
meeting of the board today , at which rcsi > -
lutlons were adopted repudiating' ' any at
