CTles of "What's the matter with Ken

plause at the close of Congressman John
1 Kennedy's feech at a crowded meeting
of the Sixth Ward Republican league Id
Idlewlld hall last night. In part Congresa
man Kennedy said:
I ronelder It a duty to take part In every
republican campaign when called upon to
do ho. Whatever candidates are nomin
ated thin fall I will be at all time at the
call of the chairman of the committee and
earn candidate can depend upon me to do
all In my power to elect him.
I have never known a county campaign
In I'ouKlas when the republican had such
good material to select from an It has thla
full, j here in no possibility that any man
will bf nominated for any of the office
who will not be a credit to republicanism.
A week from tomorrow we are golnu Into
the llrst genlune direct primary that we
ever had. The candidates who are asklnir
for the suffrage of the party are going
before the people and tle voters them
selves will have an opportunity under of
ficial and statutory provisions to expresa
I reference at the poll. 1 have always be
lieved In primary nominations. 1 think
that most of the trouble we have had In
th imrtr. and the democrat party as well.
came about from the old system of nomin
ating our candidates.
People Are Responsible.
The people pf this county ouuht to coma
out and express themselves, and If they
don't do It It Is their own fault. If they do
not nominate (food candidates they will bo
to blame. If good candidates are not nomi
nated they should hold their-peace. It
makes no difference whether the primary
law le held temporarily Invalid, becausa
the primary luw Is here to stay, and no
republican or democrat should want a
nomination unless a majority of his party
wants him on the ticket.
Rome reference was made tonight by
Chairman Morearly that we have some
factional differences and that the, club does
not recognise them. It was the old style
rotintv conventions wlwre delegates acted
otherwise than they were elected to do, and
traded one office for another, and no man
stood upon his merits that brought thla
condition. This Is a Popular government
and th nearer we et to the tieople the
better we will he governed and the less
corruption we will kave in high places.
y Judgment Is that the oirrerences grew
rom causs that have ceased, it tne
ause hava ceased the difference should
cruse, too. jsvery good repuoucan snouia
stand by the men nominated as the at
clared full and free expression of the pop-
uiar will. Let us forget we nave naa an-ferences.
We are going Into a campaign thla fall
' not only with good candidates but with
unusually good general conditions. The
country was never more prosperous. The
state of Nebraska today 1b a creditor In
stead of a debtor. I will admit that there
are certain elements of our people that are
to prosperous. Large aggregations of
capital have appropriated to themselves
more business than Is their share. It Is
. your duty and mine to see that they are
limited so they will not get more than their
; share. V should o frame our laws and
KJ so administer them so as to give every man
en equal chance. One of the great facts
about President Roosevelt that I have ad
mired Is that he has always stood by the
common people, lie has been ana la what
the country needs.
M ork Before ' CoBarrcas,
I think that the coming session of con
gress will be one of the most Important
and Interesting that this country has ever
known. Theru Is the question of railway
legulatlon that I presume will be pushed
to the front. I believe that however we
may differ as to details that any measure
that la Introduced and passed on that sub
ject, we all agree that the government has
the right to regulate railways. I believe
that the creature can never be greater than
Another of the Important Questions that
Is llkey 10"Oixne 'before congress la that of
the revision of the tariff. The house la
pretty nearly equally divided on this point,
but the west stands for a moderate revision
of the tariff. Not that the principle of
protection should be tampered with, but
that no tariff made eight years ago can be
suitable ror conditions that exist today.
The Urn'! to discuss the tariff in now, when
the biiHlness of the country will stand It
Mt Judgment Is that the people of the west
are anxious to have thla question settled
so as to give proper and reasonable pro
tectlon where It la needed, and so as not
to give certain Interests a chance to profit
more than is right and reasonable.
The gratest figure In the world's eye
is I neodore rtoosevelt. It Is not luck but
pluck that has made him. Every propo
sition he has undertaken he has carried
through. lie reached out his hand and In
the face of disbelief he brought iieace to
the warring eastern nations a peace that
I think Is permanent and stands for the
progress of that section of the world. The1
president stands today ereat not onlv for
what he has done but for the poslb!"'-
that are yet within him. I believe tht

KRAUSES PLEAD FOR TRIAL
Convicted Land Fencers' Attorneys
Argue for Kew Hrsrlog Before
The arguments for a new trlgl In the case
of the Krause brothers, who recently were
tonvlcted of fencing public lands contrary
to law, were concluded before Judge Mun
ger In the I'nlted States district court Fri
day evening. Judge Munger has taken the
matter under advisement and will hand
down his decision In a few days.
The motion for a new trial was argued
by Attorneys R. C. Noleman and C. C.
Barker of Alliance, attorneys for the
Krause brothers. Their chief contention
is the alleged unreliability of the principal
witnesses, Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Osborn,
upon whose testimony the accused was
chiefly convicted. Affidavits wrere filed Im
peaching the character of these witnesses.
Special District Attorney Rush, represent
ing the government, argued against granting
the motion on the ground that the con
viction of the accused was complete, after
a long and fair trial, and that the attempt
to Impeach the testimony of the Osborne
at this time came too lata. The tim to
Impeach their evidence was during the
trial and not dow. He further held that
even was the testimony of the Osborns
completely eliminated, sufficient evidence
had been produced from other witnesses to
warrant the verdict of conviction as ren
dered by the Jury.

DREXEL REFUSES TO ACT
Comtj Clerk Will Not Pat Dra ud
Ostrom tn Ballot.
SAYS HE IS WITHOUT AUTHORITY
Places Solomon and Tracy on Ticket,
and b,e Other Two Men Decide
to Besort to Man
County Clerk Drexel Insists he will not
place the names of William Q. Ure and
Henry Ostrom on the official primary ballot
for the office of county commissioner.
"I cannot do It," said the county clerk to
Mr. Ostrom. "No court will attempt te
compel a man to do an Impossible thing,
as 1 view It. There Is no Fifth district
defined In this county, as the law requires,
and I am going to stick close to the terms
of the law In this matter. If you, Mr.
Ostrom, or Mr. Ure, want to go on thla
primary ticket you must get an order from
the proper authority."
A to Messrs. Solomon aod Tracy, the
republican, and democratic candidates Id
the Third district, the county clerk said:
"I will put the names of these two men
on the primary ballot, because I know the
district in which they live and where they
must run. In the case of the Fifth district
there will be no candidates for county
commissioner so far as this office Is con
cerned. I feel that all my duty was dis
charged when I notified the county com
missioners by letter that It would be Im
possible for me to make up the ballot prop
erly unless they redlstrlcted to comply
with the rearrangement of wards under
the new charter."
Some Hot Words.
Chairman Kennard of the county board
and Mr. Ostrom had some heated argu
ment about the failure of the board to
redistrlct, and Mr. Ostrom denounced the
failure to act as unwarranted.
Mr. Kennard took exception to this
statement and presented a imp of the
districts to show that his own district was
the only one tampered with In the 1! Tun
ing resolution, which the board refused
to pass on Saturday.
The argument ended In nothing, definite,
but Mr. Ostrom then turned to the county
clerk and insisted that he should put th
two names on at large, as running for
county commissioner In the Fifth district.
This Mr. Drexel flatly refused to do, and
again announced that unless served with
an order of court he will put no "names
on for commissioner In the Fifth district.
Messrs. Ostrom and L're have decided to
go into court and ask Judge Redlck for a
mandamus to compel the county clerk to
place their names on ' the primary ballot
as candidates for the commissioner nom
ination In the Fifth district.

Story of ('stoaa In the White

That custom, despite the strenuous trend
of the times, Is not dead In th I'nlted
State Is proven by one of the collection of
tales out of school Just published by Cap
tain Pendel, chief doorkeeper and usher,
and oldest employe of the White House. H
cite a singular coincidence In which all
the ten presidents whose habits he knew so
well were of on mind. This I a story of
the one thing besides soap and water which
all the presidents used In common. It was
a little thing but It Is just such trifles that
impress uaon us the fact that great men
are but human, it was a toilet article.
There have always been many rivals of this
particular article, but, curiously enough,
all th presidents from Lincoln to Roose
velt have had an Identical Idea concerning
the brand of their- choice. The presidents'
of thirty years ago and their successors
used It. as did all persons of refinement In
their time. Reference la mads to Dr. Lyon's
