KEARNEY. Neb.. Oct. 25. (8peclal.)
' Fearing that he would go Insane from the
effects of morphine. Benjamin F. Ayers
committed suicide by shooting thla morn
in, dvlna- this afternoon. It was found
that the bullet, which was from a 23-callber,
long barreled, target pistol, had entered the
brain. The cause of the deed was given In
a letter addressed to his son, Charles
Ayers, which had been writen at various
times. Heading the letter Is the following:
"Don't let thla be seen. Tell all that I
killed myself rather than become a sot
and disgrace to myself and family through
the vice of morphine."
Mr. Ayers wsa born In Ashtabula, O., In
183 and served In the war. with Company I,
Forty-eighth Indiana Infantry. He lost
his left arm In battle In 1863, and drew a
pension. He settled on a homestead near

Storm Does No Damaare.
GORDON. Neb., Oct. 25. (Special.) This
section of Nebraska was visited by the
worst snowstorm that has ever been known
to occur here at this time of the year. It
began' to rain and snow last Friday after
noon and the storm continued to grow
worse until Tuesday night, when the wind
went down, and Wednesday morning all
vii lovely again.' The snow Is from one
to two feet deep on the level and In many
places Is drifted several feet deep. Trains
are delayed and telephone wires are down
Up to this writing no serious losses to
stockmen are reported. Today the snow Is
rapidly meJtlng and Indications now are
that northwest Nebraska will yet hava Its
accustomed eight weeks of sunshine from
November 1 to New Tears. Nearly all the
farmers have their potatoes dug and in the
pit and what few are yet undug are said
to be uninjured by the snowstorm, ss the
weather was not cold and the ground re
mains unfroaen under its coat of snow.
Many fields of grain are yet In the stack
awaiting thrtr turn In threshing. The fre
quent heavy rains of September caused
farmers to be from two to three weeks
behind in their fall work.

Charles Selfert, who conducts a bicycle
store. He alleges m this house occur
fights and disturbances every night and
that the women who live there conduct
themselves In a very unseemly manner,
that they go out In the street-more or less

alleges, has depreciated the value of prop

Absentees at Shallenherarer Meeting;.
The democrats of Lincoln pulled off a big
rally here tonight, with A. C. fihallenberger,
candidate for governor, the drawing card,
in a mighty effort to tear down the stone
wall of republicanism which encloses Lan
caster county. The affulr was held .In the
Oliver theater, and ' the Havelock band,
with the big "B. & M." sign, significant at
least tn this Instance, painted on the bass
drum, was a pleasing feature of the affair.
In the audience were a number of repub
licans, including officials of the republican
state committee, while the absence from
the stage of Oeorge W. Berge and the ab
sence from the audience of populists was
conspicuous enough to attract notice. The
democratic candidate was given an enthu
siastic reception when he wus Introduced
and he was cheered frequently. His speech
was carefully prepared, and happy stories
at opportune times kept it from being aiy
and uninteresting. He spoke of the sec
tions of the democratic platform in detail
and promised profusely to carry out its
pledges If elected governor. He asserted It
was more apedflc than the republican plat
form, and he dwelt at length upon the
plank promising a law to compel a 2-cent
passenger rate. Hla time spent on this sec
tion was In the nature of an apology. In
that he explained thoroughly that tho rail
roads would make money by the change.
He assured the audience Nebruvka needed
no more new laws, but needed enforcement
of the prfsent laws, especially the maxi
mum freight rate law, which he failed to
explain became a dead letter when the
State Board of Transportation was declared
He denounced the republican party for
passing a revenue law In which the precinct
assessor was cut out and the power of as
sessment placed In the hands of the county
assessor, with the state board, a board of
review, with final power to Increase or de
crease the assessment.
