SHELDON TALKS AT PIERCE
' Telia People that Legislative Ticket
Must Be Supported to lasare
PIERCE, Neb.. Oct. 12. (Special Tele
. jrram.) George L. Sheldon made the prin
cipal speech at the republican meeting
here today and in hi usual convincing
manner 'explained conditions in Nebraska
and told what the republican party in
tended to do about It. The audience was
called to order at 3:30 p. m. by Colonel
Charles Worker. lie introduced Hon. C.
A. Randallj candidate for Mate senator
from this district. The chairman said that
Mr. Randall had a good reputation at home
and he would now have a chance to prove
tt to the people of Pierce. Judging by the
applause that followed his ten-minute
-speech the people of Pierce are quite satis
fled with him and his principles.
Senator Sheldon made an earnest plea
Cor the rights of the people as against
the domination of corporations. He called
attention to tho fact that a republican at
torney general had been the first one who
ver held the office In Nebraska to bring
a. Suit of any magnitude against a corpo
ration and win U; that he won It because
he was conscientious enough to do his
duty and had Intelligence' enough to pre
pare his case properly and put it before
the- court In a proper manner. He urged
the, support of the republican candidates
for the legislature btoause their election
meant the election of that man to the
United States senate.
Mr. Sheldon also took up the question
of freight discriminations in Nebraska and
the 2-rent passenger question, showing the
absolute necessity of having a railroad com
mission to fix passenger fares In accord
ance with the earnings of the roads. In
order that the law might not be contested
and declared unconstitutional, thus falling
in any relief whatever.
O. J. Frost, candidate for the legislature,
and Edward O. Maggl also made brief ad
dresses. Killed by Runaway Team.

(From a StnfT Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Oct. 12. - (Special.) Honk
chariots, better known as automobiles, are
cutting a considerable figure in the pres
ent etate campaign. Their use is made
necessary by pour railroad connections.
Candidates Sheldon and Shaltenberger, for
governor, are ulready making frequent use
of the whis carts arid both expect to rely
on that method of covering ground in their
canvasses until tho election rolls around.
Several automobile trips have already
been laid out by Chair-nun Despaln f the
republican speakers' bureau for Senator
Sheldon. The republican gubernatorial
candidate , la to ppeak at Columbus the
afternoon of October 27, along with Gov
ernor Cummins of Iowa. Senator Sheldon
is billed for a speech the same night at
Osceola, nearly thirty miles distant. With
only two hours to make the trip, he will
board an automobile, going at high speed
In order to keep his engagement. Later
In the campaign, Mr. Sheldon is to speak
at Harvard and Oug the same day. They
are! thirty miles apart, with no direct rail
road connection, and an automobile will
again come into play.
A revised schedule of dates has been
made at republican state headquarters for
George L. Sheldon, Involving several
changes from the list previously announced
for the last week of October. The correct
dates for Sheldon's meetings are:
October 23 Broken Bow.
October 24 Rnvenim, afternoon; St. Paul,
October 25 Central City, afternoon; Au
October 2n Kearney, afternoon; Lexing
October .7 Columbus, afternoon with
Governor Cummins; Osceola, evening.
As originally planned. Sheldon was to
have visited Broken ' Bow and Arcadia on
the same day. but aa he could not get to
the latter place In time it has been omitted
from the schedule. Ravenna was substi
tuted for Loup City on the 24th and Lex
ington for Cozad on the 2Kth.
Senator Burkett will speak at Coxad and
Attorney General Brown at Gothenburg
during the campaign. With Sheldon's
speech at Lexington, this will give .Daw
son county three good sized meetings.
Information received by. the republican
speakers' bureau Is that Congressman Wal
ter I. Smith of Council Bluffs cannot pos
sibly come to Nebraska this year. The
week of October 22; which was the only
time he had left open, has been assigned
by the congressional committee to speeches
The meeting at the University Memorial
hall Saturday evening, which will be ad
dressed by Robert Cowell of Omaha, can
didate for railroad commissioner, and two
of Lancaster county's nominees for the
legislature, J. C. F. McKesson and Ned
Brown, will be open to students and their
Anti-Saloon Leaane Active-
The Nebraska Anti-Saloon league has cut
loose In the legislative campaign ' with a
notice to both the stronger political parties
that it purposes to prove to the public that
It Is still alive and kicking. The plan of
the league Is to center all of Its energies
upon the fight for the enactment of a
county option law. Candidates for the
legislature, regardless of party, are to be
stood up and questioned as to their posi
tion upon this law.
Lancaster county, apparently,- le the
scene of the league's greatest activities'.
Committees have already been named from
among the students of Wesleyan and Cot
ner universities and the State university.
These committees are to wait upon the re
publican candidates for the legislature In
Lancaster tomorrow and solicit an expres
sion from the latter as to where they stand.
The same policy, according to the pro
nouncement of the Anti-Saloon league, is
to be pursued in every county in the state.
A county option law was introduced In
the loct legislature, but was killed In com
mittee In one house and voted down in the
other. The Anti-Saloon league has been

records of all members of the legislature

Home Mission Convention.
The first session today of the national
convention of the Methodist Episcopal
woman s Home Missionary society was
chiefly devoted to financial affairs, and
funds were pledged to cover the appropria
tions for the work In the south. In Utah
and Porto Rico.
'. Preceding the general session there was
a conference on young people's work, the
subject being "How to Form and Conduct
a Misaion Study Class."
The afternoon general session Included
reports on the deaconess work by those
In charge of the various homes.
Training schools were considered at this
evening's session and a number of Inter
esting reports and papers were presented.
Tomorrow the delegates go to York to
visit the Mother Jewel home, an Institution
supported In part by the missionary so
ciety. Tax Case la December.
It Is now expected that the Burlington
and Union Pacific tax cases from Nebraska
will be heard in the United States supremo
court during the early part of Decembe-r.
Attorney General Norris Brown, who re
turned from Washii.Ktvn Thursday night,
was disappointed over the failure of his
efforts to have the cases tried without any
further delay, but received assurances that
they will be taken up as soon as President
Roosevelt hns nppointd a justice to fill
the existing vacancy on the bench and the
senate has confirmed the selection. This
will probably be as soon us congress meets
tho llrst week in December.
Besides the Nebraska tax cases a Mg
suit tielvveen the states of Kansas and Colo
rado to enjoin the latter from taking WHter
out of rivers that run through the former
state was on the call for October 9. This
action came first, and the attorney generals
of both states, as well as Attorney General
Moody and one of his assistants, represent.
Ing the United State?, were present to try
it. All the lawyers wanted In go ahead
with the hearing, but the court on its own
motion declined to do so, holding that as
the interests Involved were of great im
portance the ease should be considered by
a full membership of nine justices.
When the court announced its refusal to
proceed with the trial the attorney general
of Kansas asked that a certain date be
fixed before the expiration of his. term next
January on which to have the hearing. The
Colorado attorney general agreed to this.
The court, however, said that It could not
anticipate when the president would fill
the vacancy and therefore it would not set
any definite time, but Would place the suit
at the head of the calendar for considera
tion whenever the vacancy Is filled.

whether it could be done.
"Dr. Young, the new superintendent, can
not swear that he performed any services
as superintendent at Norfolk up to lust

the equitable side of the case, I think

Hastings asylum was expected, but failed
to put In an appearance. The matter of the
contract for food elevators for the Hastings

It appeared that Commissioner Eaton was
of the opinion , that Superintendent . Kern
