3. To th
fullr read tha several articles In Tba Baa
ooneernJng tba perfidy of J. A. Williams
af Plerco at tha republican stat oonvao
tlon aod I Join with you In saying that
a man who will thua viol at tha confidence
reposed In blm by tha republicans of hla
county, for tha sak. of political gain
far himself, la ona In .whom no ona can
hav. any confidence. Whan ha want to
that atate convention under Instruction
passed by resolution In tha Plarca county
republican convention to rota for Edward
Viawstr for United State senator, he
had but that ona thing to do aa long aa
Mr. Roaewatar waa In tha field, regardless
of what ha thought aa to proapecta or re
sults and when It la known that ho eecratl
f made a deal with tha Norrla Brown force
to eecur their aid In getting tha nominal
tlon for railroad oommiaeloner, hla traltor
oua acta are tha more aaaurable. There
enema to be no doubt aa to hla work and It
Via of such a nature that all must condemn.
Colfax Repabllean Bitter.
Tha republican of thla county of Colfax,
which waa ona of the moat enthusiastic
and loyal of tha Roaewater counties, are
bitter In their denunciation of William
and will not vote for him. I suspect that
such will be the case all oyer the atate.
Leepacially with tha friends of Edward
iioeewater. will lams will lose thousands
of rotes and It is to be hoped that he will
be defeated. A man who will prora to be
a traitor to hla home republican, aa well
aa to be two-faced with hla supposed frtend,
la not tha man to trust In ao Important a
position as ml' road commissioner. That la
an Important office and tha people hava too
much at stake to entrust their Interest in
uch hands. "A man who will practically
i sell out his friend for the aake of a political
'- office would be too apt to sell out the people
I where the railroade were Interested on the
i other aide.
I My object In writing this letter to you
, for publication, la to consolidate the repnb-
' hlcana who propose voting against Mr. WU
y Haras. There being three democratic canr
dldatee for railroad com miaul oner, soma ra
il publicans will vote for Herat, aoine for
'Fltsslmmons and some for Davis. By scat
tering their votea they might still let WU
I Haras slide through, while If they consoli
date1 It, he would be sura of defeat.
I want to suggeat to Tha Bee editor and
to republicans who propose cutting the
, name of Williams, that they cast their
. votes for George Horat of Polk county.
' I hava known George Horst and know
him to be a splendid man for that position.
Hla several terms In the Nebraska legis
lature tell best of him. I suggest to The
Bee editor to take up thla suggeatlon and
j advise tha Roaewater republicans and re
kpublloans who won't vote for a man like
Williams to all vote for George Horat.
Thar la another reason wby The Bae
should do thla, and that la In protection of
Wlnnett and Cow ell, whom It supports. If
the vote In tha state Is close the defection
'from Williams, If scattered among Horst
fnuslmmons and Davis, might defeat all
Uhree republican candidates.
Personally, I am for the three democratic
nominees and would like to see all three
elected, but I want to sea William de
feated aura, and If ona of the three demo-
icjrata la auoceeaful I want honest George
I Horst, that one. Let The Bee editor give
thls his attention and Mr. Williams will
mot be on that board where he can have the
chanoe to betray the people. Very truly
iyoure. . JOHN C. BPRECHER.

REFORM IN SPELLING SLOW
Follies Cannot Be Driven Away bj Lash
Wielded by Mao.
CHANCELLOR ANDRtWS ON ORTHOGRAPHY
Movement for Better Spelling; Mast
Proceed Slowly It It is to Bo of
Aajr Real Service to tho
LINCOLN. Sept. n. Speclal.r-Thls
morning- Chancellor Andrews delivered his
annual opening address ' to the student
body ot the University of Nebraska. His
subject was "Sans Spelling," and he dis
cussed the present movement for a reform
tn orthography in detail. Among other
things the chancellor, who la an advocate
of the proposed reforms, said:
Follies In spelling take tbelr own tlms In
passing away. You cannot hurry them
with the lash. No step in th progress of
orthography is mad possible or eunler by
efforts at coercion or dictation. The move
ment has always been spentaneoua and will
continue so. You cannot hasten It by dlct
any more than you can stay it by Jet.
If a man wishes to writ though for tho,
using Just loo per cent more time, work,
paper and Ink than neceaaary, it la of no
ua to flay , him or even to put him In a
Wisdom la Justified of her children.
Thoughtful men and women become im
pressed with the unreaaon of such spelling,
and little by little chang their practice.
Others follow. Influenced by example. All
I voluntary. Innovators snd laggard
allk ar derided. The flrat apelling 're
former who wrot mualc for muslck waa
pronounced a crank. After a time any
who added the k were conaldered cranks.
And o th reform has spread, never
swiftly enough to pacify faddists, taughud
at by the thoughtless, but not materially
retarded by any of Its opponent.
War on with a sens for aane apelling
to writ without reference to hi reader,
hi apallang program would be !mple
enough. Remembering that a letter may
be ailent and yet of use to tell tho sound
of a near letter or to distinguish on ense
of a word from another, he would proceed
according to precept omewhat like thla!
V When a letter or combination of let
ters la In no sens helpful or neceaaary,
leav It out.
2. When a letter or combination differ
ing from the usual one render tha sound
belter than ths usual one, substitute It
for th usual on.
But such a program, slmpl as it I,
would, If carried out all at once, pro
due odd and urprUing change, which,
a ao many of us write for non-reformer
and Philistine, would glv much offens
and hinder progreaa In apelling instead of
peedtng it. Real reform must, therefore,
ptTforce, be moderate, not attempting too
much at once. Advocacy of the use,
forthwith, of many new spellings, or of
spellings over which men need pause to
ascertain their meanings, Is tha sign of
tl:e dortrlnalr. A speller who. as a good
bi ginning, sitnply writes tho, and keeps the
tail off prolog and Its cognalea, helpa the
eauee much more.
To make the two rules workable, real

Becoming Paris and New York Models Exclusively Shown Here
Our buyers in Paris made a special effort to import direct a great number of stunning
French hats to sell at $25. In doing this many hats were chosen that actually sell at
more on the Rue de la Paix, and the hat s could be duplicated
nowhere else in America for this figure. It is an assemblage of
brijliant beauty from the work rooms of the master milliners of
France. ' In this array are many beautiful New York model hats as well. ......

of orthographic legitimacy parallel to the
exploded dogmas of political lerltlmacy In

outalde printing ahopa, no such standard
of authority, Bible, or supreme court exists.
Dictionaries sre not such and do not pre
