"NEBRASKA CITY. Oct. 17. 19US. Mr.
W. B. Hose, Chairman Republican State
Central Committee Lear Sir: Among the
assets of the Kearney National bank,
placed In my hands as receiver, were notes
amounting to about 3i0, signed by Norrls
Brown. These notes had no connection
whatever with the denoult of IiUkiO by ex
State Treasure.' Hartley. As I recollect the
facts, they are about aa follows: Norrls
Brown owed the bank as above stated. He
claimed the bank owed him an account for
attorney's fees, and wished to olTset his
indebtedness to the bank by the bank's
Indebtedness to him. Kquitahly, It looked
to me aa though such a compromise would
be Just. These, notea, with other asaets of
the bank, were duly advertised for sale in
the Kearney Hub, and sold with other as
aets of the bank In March, 18.18. I do not
recollect who bought the notes or the
amount nald for them. A common-sense
Interpretation of the transaction would be
tnat Brown received from the Kearney Na
tional bank for services, as claimed by
him, an amount equal to the difference
between the face value of notes and the
amount paid for the notes at publio auc
tion, rours very truly,
That Norrls Brown did not owe the
Kearney National bank, nor the state of
Nebraska any sum whatever at the time
the affairs of the bank were settled was
shown In a recently published Interview
with N. P. McDonald, present county at
torney of Buffalo county, who was familiar
with the racts. 'inn trutn waa aiao pun
llshed by Robert Payne, receiver, 1n an
Interview given to the Nebraska City Dally
Tribune. October 6. 1WI6.
Without making Inoulry of Mr. Payne to
ascertain the facts and, disregarding the
truth which had been published. T. S.
Allen, chairman of the democratic stete
central committee, has lee.n diligently pub
lishing and circulating throughout the
state anonymous hand bills containing this
false report. I appeal to every fair
minded man, regardless of party affilia
tion, to resent the disreputable methods
employed by the democratic state central
committee In their efforts to defeat Norrls
Brown and prevent regulation of freight
ratea by the election of a democratic ngis

Oeorge L. Sheldon, who
spoke here last night, was delayed by a late
train and did not reach the court room un
til after I o'clock. The lateness of the
hour and rslny weather during the after
noon and erenlfig prevented many from
coming out and only about lot! persons were
Mr. Sheldon spoke about an hour and
confined himself principally to a discussion
of the regulation of freight and passenger
rates. His argument was dispassionate,
comprehensive and convincing and he made
an excellent Impression on his audience,
and none who heard him doubted his fit
ess and ability for tho governorship. In
his speech he compared freight rates In
Nebraska with rates for corresponding dis
tance In Iowa and Minnesota and showed
that the rates In Nebraska are much higher
than In the other states mentioned. He
stated that nails are passed from Chicago
to Omaha for 27 cents, while 41 cents Is
charged from Omaha to Burwell; that the
farmer on the Northwestern for a I4ft-mlle
haul to Omaha pays 24Vn cents freight
charges on hoga. while the Iowa farmer
pays but 18 cents for the same distance;
that It costs M to ship 1.000 bushels of
corn from here to Omaha, while it costs
only M to ship the same amount a similar
distance In Iowa to Omaha, and that to
ship corn from her to tOmah costs one-
flfth of the value of the corn, while for a
!1ke distance In Iowa It costs one-seventh.
How to Get Relief.
He said that the railroads In Nebraska
wer earning more per mile than In Iowa
and Minnesota and that freight ratea In
Nebraska are higher than In those states
by about 40 per cent. He argued that, no
relief can be had from the maximum
freight law which candidate ShaJlenberg-r
says should b enforced for the reason that
It I not practically enforclble without a
commission, and hs urged the adoption of
the proposed constitutional amendment and
the passage of a law' giving the railroad
commissioners authority and power to reg
ulate and fix ratea.
He argued In favor of a I-cent passenger
rata, but said tha regulation of passenger
rates should be left with the commission
er and not governed by a specific statute
for the reason that passenger rates might
bs much lower on atrm roads than en oth
ers, and for that reason the fixing of pas
senger rates should be left to, the commis
sioner, the aaraa aa freight rat.
HI speech convinced hi hearers that he
Intends to be fair to all Interests and every
statement he made argued for a square
deal. He spoke strongly In favor of the
election of a republican legislature and the
taction of Norrls Brown for United State
senator. He also urged the re-election of

BEATRICE, Neb.. Oct. 30. (Special Tele
gram.) The republican campaign was
opened here this afternoon by Hon. Nor
rls Brown and the local legislative ticket.
Mr. Brown pointed to the prosperity of
the country today aa an achievement of
the republican party. The question of
corporation taxes and railroad ratea, he
said, are met fairly and squarely by the
republican platform. On these question
the democrat are silent. It Is probable
the railroads feel they will fare better
with democrats in power and so the road
are trying to defeat the republican nom
inees. It Is not true, as democrats assert,
that It la necessary to elect them to sup
port Roosevelt. Mr. Brown read from an
editorial in the World-Herald of October
J, which denounced the president, declared
him an enemy of labor, a favorite of the
Interests and a recipient of favor from
the corporation. The writer coupled
these statements with the contention that
it la necessary to elect democrats to sup
port the president. Referring to state
politics, Mr. Brown stated that railroad
valuation had been raised upder republi
can rule, whereas they had' been lowered
by the fualontsts. He recited the history
of the Aght In the courts to collect taxes
levied upon the railroads. His address
waa received with enthusiasm, though the
audience was small, due to the threaten
The legislative candldatea made brief
speeches and declared they stood upon the
