liulda that Joe tturns cut out of construct
ing the elevatois on a tecbnlcsjity, and
tnat later tha board let the contract for
W,feo, after rejecting a bid for U,V for the
litnc work. H. M. Eaton, land comrr.ia
e'.oiier, la chairman of this board and
tnough appointed a committee of one to
look Into the bids, stated the other day,
when the story wss Drst published, that
the contract looked queer, but that he knew
nothing about it.
' Governor Mickey has stopped the work,
and gave as his reasons tha following:
' "The contract was not let properly; the
state Is paying too much money for the
work; .the contract looks wrong on the face
of It; the board had no right to tell Dr.
Kern to make the contract, but should
have done that work Itself."
Though Dr. Kern haa a letter signed by
Secretary of State Qalusha authorising him
to let the contract. Chairman Fa ton said
no such authority was given Oalusha by
the board. The letter from I)r. Kern to
Governor Mickey Is:
INOLE8IDE. Neb., Sept. 17. 19r.-Hon. J.
H. Mickey, Lincoln. Neb.: Dear Governor
I am In receipt of your letter of the )6th
tnat. with reference to our contract for
seven electric food elevators, and In reply
have to say: We received an appropriation
of 13.600 by the last legislature for the In
stallation of an additional electric light
plant for this hospital, and when the spe
cifications for this additional electric light
plant were written there wan Included alao
saolHoattrina fnr nna Inntv hongnnnr
motor to be used In our laundry and seven
food elevators. The clause In the specifi
cations referring to the food elevstors
reads ss follows: "This contractor shall
also furnish and Install complete at seven
levators, located In the different 'wings of
the main building, a one horsepower motor
of similar type as mentioned above, with
all necessary equipments to operate ele
Figures were submitted to the board
from several different bidders, the two
principal bidders, however, being the 'West
ern Klectrlc company of Omaha, of which
O. W. Johnston Is president, and Joseph
Burns of Lincoln. Mr. Burns being the
lowest bidder by several hundred dollars,
the contract was awarded to him. A little
later (before beginning the work) Mr,
Burns appeared before the board and after
the matter had been discussed St consid
erable length he was finally released by
the board from that part or the contract
referrlnc to the seven food elevators, pre
sumably due, as I understand It, to a teoh
nlcality. This, I think, was done In the
presence of the full board. Immediately
following this an advertisement was placed
asking for blda on the Installation of seven
food elevators In this hospital, and, so far
as I recall at tha present time, there were
but two bidders, one being the Mollne ele
vator company of Mollne. 111., of which Mr.
Frank Long Is state representative, whosa
swaflgure were approximately $2,100, and the
other being the Otis Elevator company of
Chicago, whoa figure war approximately
S&600. The contract was not let at that
time, but additional bids were asked for
and In April of this year the contract was
let to Earl C wesoott or nattsmoutn
Ins of the board, yet a letter from the sec
retary to me under that oat with refer
ence to rooa elevator reeaa as ioiiows:
"Have bid of Burl Weaoott that I some.
thing Ilk $1,300 less than the Otis people
and on earn quality of stuff. Matter re
ferred to you to purchase. We had . the
bids before the whole board and It Is un
derstood that Mr. Weaoott get th con
tract. Th Mollne bid (at that time) about
mor than Weaoott and th ami sp
eifioatlon bid on. Close this up and bay
him gat th stuff la at one."

to California, was In Lincoln a few days
this week, and from an experience he had
with th railroads he Is of the opinion
rapid transportation of goods by railroad

8HELDO RAPS ' TAX SHIRKERS
Repabllcaa Candidate) Asks for a
Square Deal anal Km Favor.
CRETE, Neb., Sept. a. (Special Tele
gram.) The campaign In Saline county waa
opened In this city tonight with a rousing
rally with a large crowd at the opera house
at which Hon. Norrls Brown and Hon.
George L. Sheldon were th principal
speakers. Ex-State Senator C. B. Ander
son presided and aroused enthuslssro by
reference to President Roosevelt and the
many good things hs hsd don for our
country. County candidates For stats
senator, P. F. Dodson; for representative.
C. H. Culdlce and F. O. Johnson; for
county attorney R. D. Brown were pres
ent and each renewed their pledge to stand
squarely upon th county and state plat
forms and by President Roosevelt In his
endeavors for reform and corporation regu
lation, and to vote for Norrls Brown for
United State senator at th legislature
Mr. Sheldon. In opening his address, said
he felt good over Saline' platform against
railroad domination, free passes, tha giv
ing of rebates and Its call for a direct pri
mary law. He reviewed th causes which
led up to the present revenue law, giving
as his reason for this law the fallur of
the state .board to reach an equitable as
sessment for all tha people. He howd
how. th railroads refused to pay their
Saline county taxation, whil other prop
arty owners were forced to pay at the
same rate. Facts and figures were cited
in a convincing argument against railroad
rale, stating that today there was due and
unpaid for three years' taxation, ttt,000
from the railroads of this county alone. He
again reiterated that he raa not endeavor
ing to drive th railroads out of business,
but out of politics. He called upon tha
roads to explain the discrepancies In
freight rate on long and short hauls, to
tell why It costs mora to freight merchan
dise In Nebraska than In Iowa, showed by
Burlington railroad reports thst earnings
per. mile wer greater m Nebraska than
on all their other lines west of ths river.
Voters wer asked to aid in securing a
railroad commission and knock out th re
bate system. He declared he never was
a Missouri Pacific attorney, nor never asked
for a pass on thst system. He asked the
people "to support a square deal, where
favors sre not given."
Hon. Norrls Brown's talk was on the
same lines, arklng for support of the
county ticket thst Sheldon as governor
might be enabled to sign laws thst were
for the people. He showed why th repub
lican party deserved th patronage of the
people today, how the party was In close
touch with th people, eulogised Roosevelt's
endeavora In the regulation of railroad
ratew. explained the grain trust rebates and
saked hearty co-operation In endeavors to
lift these burdens from the shoulders of
Both men were cordially received and
made many friends In Crete.

HI MOR BAYS FOVR ARE IMDICTED
Tree Bills Retnraed Against Insane
NORFOLK, Neb., Sept. K. (Special.)
The grind Jury which has been probing
Norfolk Insane hospital matters for a week
and which brought Its work to an end
early this morning. Is believed to have
drawn Indictments against former sttend
snts of ths institution, perhaps four of
them. Strictest secrecy Is being main
tained by the Jurymen, and this fsct is
taken to mean thst true bills were brought
In and thst ths sheriff is being allowed time
In which to make arresta. -
It Is pretty generally known In Madison
that indictments have been brought, though
ofllclal confirmation is, of course, lacking.

SEWARD. Neb., Sept. .-(flpeclsl Tel

kett addressed the delegates to the repub
lican county convention here this after
noon. Dr. F. A. Marsh of Seward and J.
P. Stols of J precinct received the nomina
tions for representatives. L. H. McKilllp
was renominated for county attorney. Sen
ator Burkett said In part:
The republican party stands committed
today, not only by Its platform but by th
word of honor of Its leaders and the ac
tion of Its representatives In congress, to
all possible nnd proper legislation for gov
ernment rontrol of railroads. The repub
lican party has not been derelict in the
fast. 1 say this snd want to demonstrate
t to you because our opponents spend
much of their time In trying to prove that
the republican party has not been doing Its
duty. Sixteen years ago. In 1890, the re-
fiubllcnns passed the Shermftn anti-trust
aw. Nineteen years ago, In 1R87. the re
publlcana enacted the Interstate commerce
law. Those laws were not only sneered at
by the democrats In congress, but wer
passed 'In spite of democratic opposition.
The anti-trust law received only Ave dem
ocratic votes when It was passed. I shall
not say that either of those laws were per
fect, but they were a thousand times bet
ter than no legislation at all. They were
the pioneers of this sort of legislation, and
it was expected that the future would dis
close their shortcomings and suggest
needed amendments. .
Democrats Do Nothing.
The republicans have amended these law
but the democrats tiever hsve. Nearly
every congrers that the republicans hava
controlled has made additions snd amend
ments as time and experience has demon
strated their need.. Busy ss congress 4iaa
been In recent years. Involved as It haa
been with war and its accompanying workt
congress has not overlooked these Import
ant questions. I remember once we gav
to th attorney general 1500.000 to hire spe
cial counsel to enforce these lawr In Ian
we passed three laws one to expedite the
hearing of esses Involving these questions
by advancing them to the head of the
docket, another creating the bureau of cor-
porauona and giving It authority and mak
ing it a duty to secure svatemntle Infor
mation concerning the organization and op
eration of corporations engsged In Inter
state commerce. Later on we passed
another law enlarging the powers of the
Interstate Commerce commission and also
of the courts to desl with the subject of
rebates and discriminations. And last
.'ou rememDer, we still further
amended the law.
we now hope and bejleve that we have a
law sufficiently broad and exactinr tn wnt
very rml"S,,ricy but If the future shall
show to us further Insufficiency, the re-
puoncan party is big enoush and cour..
geoua enough to still further amend them.

to our distinguished and more or less dis
credited opponents I think more of repub
lican legislation than I do of democratic
agitation. But congress can't do all that
needs to be done. If you will read section
o' article 1 of the constitution of the
uimea Dtaies, you win nnd that congress
Is given power ''to regulate commerce with
forelan nation and mnn ih. i
Mates." The tenth amendment to that
constitution provide that all powers not
specifically conferred upon th government
ar reserved to th states. Congress la
f lven power to regulate commerce "'among"
h state but not "In" th ststes, and
e pwwer to control commerce "in

specifically reserved to tha states. So you
see that commerce "among the states," or
"Interstate commerce" aa Ft Is called is th
only commeroe that congress has any juris
diction ovsr. If you send a car of corn to
Chicago, thst would be Interstate commerce
n imninn 10 in law or congress and
federal control. But If you wer to send
a car of hay down to Lincoln or a barrel
of Dotatoeel to Holdrea-e. that wnuM k. in
trastate commerce, and congress or the
reaerai government would have nothing to
do with It. Railroad ratea among the states
con be regulated by congress, while rates
inside a state can be regulated only by
state laws. State laws must be enacted to
co-operate with federal legislation.
Pledged to Party Platforaa.
I have spoken of thl thus fully that you
may understand the importance of selecting
your members of the legislature this year.
Every republican candidate la pledged, and
it he Isn't h ought to go on the stumn
somewhere at once and pledge himself . to
carry out the republican state plattorm.
wnen in repuoucan party write a plat
form It la to be carried out and no man
haa any bualneas running on the ticket if
he Isn't Intending to carry out his party's
platform. One of th plank in that plat
form declares for an anti-pass law, and the
peopfe expect It to be carried out. I say
the people expect It because It is tn a re
publican platform. It waa In a democratic
fdatform some years ago when they tn
n control of state affairs, but they neither
enacted the law nor stopped riding on
passes. But I want to aay here and now
that the man la a disloyal republican who
will run on that platform this fall and
does not vote and work for Its enactment
Into law this winter
The republican candidates are also pledged
by all the bonds of honor and honesty as
men to vote for Norrls Brown, the republi
can nominee for United States senator; and
Norrls Brown I pledged to stand by Theo
dore Roossvelt and all th splendid lerlsla
tion that he has recommended to congress
snd sll the policies that Roosevelt etands
for. Thus) we tee how closely are all these
matters interwoven, and I urge you to vote
the stats ticket and county ticket a well
aa the national ticket.

GRAND ISLAND. Neb., Bept. .-Spe-cial
Telegram.)-W. H. Thotnpeon. demo
cratic candidate for United States senator,
had aome rough sea to encounter In the
fusion oonventlon called to nominate two
candidates for representatives and one for
county attorney today. There has been
considerable skirmishing for a week. Mr.
Thompson first selected 8. N. Walbach,
democrat, and Dan Fishbum. populist, for
representatles, and C. G. Ryan for sen
ator. But a local paP" l k aU
th candidate about th pass question.
Mr. Walbach was etrongly adverse to be
coming a candidate for many reasons, and
openly declared he would not surrender his
pass and Anally declined to become a can
didate. Desplts this action the democrat
urged to the last. Thla Vfternoon he mad
a vigorous defense of th pass system, de
claiming that the holding of the courtesies
could not tnsk a man. If he were not a
man. and would not unmake a man If he
wer on. "No one." he said, "would be
so cheap aa to be influenced by one. He
was cheered to th echo and again urged
by Mr. Edwards to take the r.nn;r.atlon.
The democrats delsyed nominating until
they found that the populists had named
Fred Thompson, a farmer, as ons. Then
they also nominated Thomssen and Charles
T. Ryan, attorney for the American Beet
Sugar company, and on a friendly footing
