LINCOLN. Neb., Sept. 17.-8peclal.)-At
Epworth park this afternoon George W.
Berge, fusion candidate for governor, for
mally opened the campaign Mr. Berge
talked for two and a half hours and at tha
conclusion of his act the meeting wsa dis
missed with a number by the band. Chair
man Allen having made the announce
ment. This sudden ending of the session
left Candidate Townsrnd, Berge'a running
mate; Candidate Canadsy, who wants to
be auditor, and Candidate Watike, who
wants to be secretary of state, still sitting
In the rear of the platform apparently
waiting for a great flood of enthusiasm to
roll up snd drag them to the front. But
It didn't roll up. The audience did, how
ever, rise up and leave. The day could
not have been more Ideal for a picnic or
a public meeting. It was just wsrm enough
on the outside and the breezes blew just
gentle enough to put the people In a re
cipient mood. But all this was on the out
side of the big pavilion. On the Inside It
was different. A flighting frost seemed
to have settled down on everything. Mr.
Berge 'talked himself hoarse. He talked
well and couTa not have been In better
form. He delivered a good speech from a
fuslonlst. standpoint, but he couldn't do the
business. In the first place, he didn't
have the crowd, for at no time during the
-speech, and the audience shifted several
times, were there 1,000 people In the pavil
ion. Some say there were not 600.
Another thing was the abeenco of the
great bulwarks of democracy. There was
no Governor Boyd there; neither was there
a Lee Herdman; neither wan there any
other representative of the Parker demo
crats of the Jacksonlan club or of the
Douglas county democracy, either. Even
Judge Wilbur F. Bryant was absent and
so were many others who In the past have
done things in the fusion party. As these
were absent, so were tha big democrats of
Lancaster county. More than half of the
audience were women and children.
Enough for One Day.
The enthusiasm la better shown by the
remark of Chairman Allen of the demo
cratic state committee, who presided. It
had been announced before the meeting
that the state candidates would have a
word to say after Mr. Berge finished.
When Berge did get through Mr. Allen an
nounced that after the band played one
more number the audience could consider
Itself dismissed. He was asked why the
other candidates were shut off. He replied:
Two hour:i and a half of speaking ought
to be enough, don't you think?" His man
ner In answering was marked with disap
pointment and gloom, as the audience was
marked with a lack of enthusiasm.
Preceding the speaking a roasted oxen
was disposed of by a gcod-sised crowd,
many of whom left when the Inner man
was satisfied. The oxen was not cooked
whole, after the regulation barbecue, but
was cut up !n sections and cooked all the
same as one gets It at hone. With the
meat was served coffee and bread. Chair
man Allen of the democratic state com
mittee presided and Introduced Mr. Berge.
Music was furnished by the Hagenow
band. Mr. Berge said In part:
Mr. Beraje's Speech.
In acceoHnar th
Chief executive office of the state. I am
lu.ijr cuimciuui oi me responsibilities It
places upon me. It has been frequently
asserted that there are no Issues in this
campaign, except to get the offices. It has
been said that the populists and democrats
?i loner represent any principle, and that
V ' mpiy a scramble for
spoils. If I believed this. I would re
sign my candidacy at once. If this was
true there would be no good reason for the
election of any candidate on the fusion
i But who Is It that says there are no
': iseaay ior tnoee holding official
positions under the dominant party to say
that there are no Issues. Have the tax
payers said that there are no IssusaT Do
the farmers, the business men and the la
boring men say that there are no Issues
In this campaign? It can be shown that
a great deal of money has been recklessly
squandered during the last two years, and
do the men, who are taxed to raise the
money, do thejr say there are no issues I
The speaker then proceeded to denounce
the free pass system and demand Its aboli
tion and also took a shot at the legislative
The last session of the fusion legislature
was In 1897. You know that each legisla
ture appropriates money for the state gov
ernment for two years. The fuslos legisla
ture appropriated 12,836.843.10 to be ex
pended by the state officials in maintaining
the state government for two years, ending
March 81, 1899.
Our state officers carried on the state
government with efficiency those two years
at a total cost of 12. 161, 687. 17, and paid off
H64.68S.46 of the floating debt, and in addi
tion paid off the last dollar of the bonded
indebtedness of the state, amounting to
mora than 1300,000.
Refers to State Debt.
Tha last republican legislature (1903) ap
propriated $3. 104,20. 70, to oe expended by re
publican officers In maintaining the state
government for two years, ending March
al. 1906. They will spend every cent of it.
Now then, when you go in debt you must
make provision to pay that debt. The re
publicans were extravagant and were
forced to raise the money in some way to
pay for that extravagance. Two years ago
In their state platform they pledged them
selves to enact a comprehensive and fair
revenue law. Whatever their pretentions
were, the real object was to raise more
money. It was a conspiracy hatched out
In the plotting minds of those in control
of the legislature. Extravagance demanded
more money than the old law would pru
duce. in making the new law tbey must
snleld themselves. The farmer, the busi
ness man and the small taxpayer must
bear a heavier proportion of the burden.
I.et us examine this new law for a mo
ment, it is a cunning piece of legislation.
It not only was passed to raise more money,
but to build up a mighty political engine.
Under the old law every township or pre
cinct or ward elected Its own assessor.
Some of the townships elected republican
assessors, some populist and some demo
cratic. Under this new law, however, one county
assessor Is elected. He is elected for four
years. This county assessor appoints his
deputies In each precinct. He may ap
point local men. He may send in carpet
baggers, but o'ery one appointed by him
is his political lieutenant. The moment a
county assessor Is elected and his deputies
apolnted he has a political machine. With
this additional machine the people are
mors helpless. The machine runs for four
years. There Is no relief until four years
have expired and then the people will
be again tied hand and fot by me same
He followed this up with a general de
nunciation of the new revenue law.

DESPERATE CHARACTER ARRESTED
DAKOTA CITY, Neb.. Sept. 17.-(Speclal.)
By working a ruse Deputy United States
Marshal Sides succeeded In capturing
Alonso Show, known as "Feather Legs," a
confirmed "bootlegger" and would-be des
perado, who has been In and around the
reservation for some time.
Show escape! from arrest August 26 while
In charge of Mr. Sides and since then h.ra
been In Iowa and Minnesota. He returned
to Homer this week and threatened to kill
any officer who should try to take him.
Marshal Sides got word that he was In
Homer, and knowing It would be futile for
him to attempt his arrest, as the saloons
and bootleggers have sentinels placed
around the outskirts of the town, he depu
tised George Cain to make the arrest.
Cain, In company with Town Marshal
Dan Purdy of Homer, found "Feather
Legs" In Luckhart's saloon and arrested
him, placing him In the Homer calaboose.
Marshal Sides was notified of the arrest
and went to Homer from this place at
once. In the meantime "Feather Legs"
made an attempt to break out of the cala
boose by battering down the door of the
jail with an old Iron door which was In the
Jail. Had Mr. Cain not gone to the cala
boosa when he djd, about an hour after
"Feather Legs" was put In, his prisoner
would have been gone. "Feather Legs"
wrs heavily Ironed and brought to this
place and placed In jail until the departure
of the train for Pender, where he will have
his examination pn the charge of bootleg
ging before United States Commissioner

LINCOLN, Sept. 17. (Special. )-Tho mat
ter of furnishing text books to the students
of the State university at cost will be
taken up by the Board of Regents at their
next meeting. The matter will be brought
up by C. 8. Allen, one of the Lincoln mem
bers of the board, ejid If the plan is prac
ticable and there is any disposition shown
by the students for such a method being
adopted Mr. Allen will advocate it. He said
"I have not looked very closely Into the
legal phase of the question that Is,
whether the regents have -the authority by
law to buy the books for the students, but
If there is any way to save the students
any money lnthla matter of course I will
heartily endorse it. None of the students
have spoken to me about the matter and
except what I have read about it I do not
know that there is any great demand on
the part of the students for us to do this.
If there Is, then I for one will be glad to
do all I can In the matter. The students
should be saved every cent that Is possible.
Many of them are compelled to work their
way through school snd every dollar counts
with them. I hope the students will let
us know their thoughts on the matter and
If there is a demand for the regents to pur
chase the books, and if we can do It and
thereby save money for the students, I am
In favor of It. I will call the attention or
the board to the matter at its next meet
ing." The Board of Regents have a meeting
called for about the first of October, at
which time the members will discuss what
they want from the next legislature. This
will be at a date too late to help the stu
dents during the first semester; -therefore,
If students desire ro secure their text books
cheaper than they have been getting them
they should bring pressure to beer on the
regents and get a meeting for the Imme
