(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Lwc. 12. (Special.) Chairman
V. 14. Rosn ha Rent the following letter
to racmhfru of the legislature:
Dear Fir: During the recent rampairn it
was constantly asset ted liy the reuuhili an
atate central coninnit-e that the republican form would be carried out In good faith,
In the event of a republican victory No
vember 6.
Promlm to keep the pledges of the party
Were reiterated by all republican candi
dates, were featured In campaign literature
and published in the republican press of
the (tale. Campaign speakers sent out by
the state central committee Joined In these
promise. The people believed In the prin
ciple of the republican party anil In the
sincerity and ability of It candidates. As
a result you were selected an a luwmuker,
and the leslslatlve and executive depart
ments of government were committed ti
republicans for two yeir more. Jood
faith, party honor and public wellfare re
quire the redemption of every pledge.
Aa chairman of the state central com
mittee, I waa frequently criticised for mak
ing these, promises. The critics did not
question tho sincerity of candidates for the
legislature, but they Insisted that party
officers should hesltHte to make promise
Which might not be fulfilled, and that mem
bers of the legislature would find It difficult
to enact antl-puse 1-iws, direct primary
laws, laws to tax railway terminals, In we
conferring upon the railway commission

promised by the republican party In its
To pass effective and vnlld laws on these
Subjects Is, In fnct, very difficult, for the
reason that the railroads with their trained
lobby and skilled manipulate oppose legis
lation nf that kind. Kiiltlllment of prions 'd
legislation will, therefore, be attended with
difficulties, and under the circumstances, I
feel ut liberty to call your attention to
aome of the means by which measures
affecting railroads and other corporations
wero defeated at former sessions of the
The chief obstruction to the passage of
uch laws In the past was the introduction
and manipulation of numerous and unneces
sary bills on almost every conceivable sub
ject. Hills were drawn In ttreat numbers
by designing persons outside of the legisla
ture. ,nd members urged to Introduce them.
In thli, manner bills were multiplied until
It took well equipped printing plant to
print then: proofreaders In both houses to
correct errors, clerks to read the hills In
pen session and other clfrks to keep track
f them In the bill rooms. Valuable time
f the members was wasted dally In the
reading of bills never Intended for pnssage,
but to confuse members and defeat legisla
tion. They accumulated until It was dim
cult to get bills of public Interest up for
When a bill purporting to regulate rail
roads was reached, some one was always
preparea witn an amendment to make It
odious or unconstitutional, and If It sue-1
cemfully ran the gauntlet of legislation. It
was ready for annulment by the courts.
Meritorious bills sometimes met the same
fate through improper records kept by un
friendly legislative clerks. Important hills
on tho same subject were often Introduced
by different rtenihnrs, and, through rivalry
or Jealousy, all were defeated.
In the passage of the present revenue
law during the semlnn of 1903 these diffi
culties were overcome. The senate and
house appointed a Joint committee on
revenue and the members thereof patiently
heard all interests, mnde a thorough In
vestigation of the subject nf taxation,
formulated and Introduced In both houses
a bill which received the united support of
republican members and met with execu
tive approval. If this method Is followed at
the coming session, in nctlng on the prin
cipal republican measures, . every promise
of the party will be redeemed.
Promised laws will be more certain of
enactment If considered at the beginning
of the session, without Interference by de
mands for other legislation to which the
party la not pledged. ...

NORFOLK. Neb., Dec. 12.-Speclal.) The
acquittal of Eugene Dleta, charged with
shooting Kartle Elseffer with Intent to do
great bodily injury, haa closed one of the
Interesting cases In the annala of Nebraska
courts. Elseffer, now a student In the Ar
mour Institute At Chlentfo. was 17 when he.
with other companions, went to the Elk- !
horn river to swim. They had been warned
to keep off Diets s property, and had con
sulted a lawyer to learn that they could
enter the river above Diets, swim In the
water opposite his land and not trespass.
Diets claimed the boys brought a dog
with them which worried his stock and
that they were a nuisance, swimming so
close to his house.
One day he came out with a shot gun
and fired Into the water. No one was
struck. The boys ran out of the river for
their clothing. Diets seised it and started
to run. He said he wanted to force them
to give their names, that he might have
them arrested. They pursued and he
turned, according to their testimony, nnd
fired. The charge struck young Elseffer
and he was In a dangerous condition for
a time. He will never recover fully.

dental and he waa cleared.

Charcoal Kills
Bad Breath

dulgence, Can lie Inatantly
Sample Package Mailed Free.
Other people notice your bad breath
where you would not notice it at all. It la
nauseating to other people to stand before
them and while you are talking, give them
a whiff or two of your bad breath. It usually
comes from food fermenting on your stom
ach. Sometimes you have it in the morn
ingthat awful aour, bilious, bad breath.
You can stop that at once by swallowing
one or two Stuart Charcoal Loxenges, the
most powerful gas and odor abeorbers aver
Sometlmea your meals will reveal them
selves In your breath to those who talk with
you. "You've had onions." or "You've been
eating cabbage," and all of a sudden you
belch In the face of your friend. Charcoal
Is a wondeful absorber of oders, aa every
one knows. That Is why Stuart's Charcoal
Lozenges are ao quick to stop all gaies and
odors or odorous foods, or gas from indi
gestion. Don't use breath perfumes. They never
conceal the odor, and never absorb the gas
that causes the odor. Besides, the V6ry
fact of using them reveals the reason for
their ure. Stuart's Charcoal Lozengca In
the first place stop for good all aour
brash and belching of gas, and makes your
breath pure, fresh and sweet, just after
you've eaten. Then no one will turn hi
face away from you when you breatho or
talk; your breath will be pure and fresh.
and besides your food will taste ao much
belter to you at your next meal. Just try
Charcoal does other wonderful things,
too. It carries away from your stomach
nnd Intestines, all the impurities there
massed together and which causes the bad
breath. Charcoal is a purifier aa well aa
an absorber.
Charcoal la now by far the best, most
easy and mild laxative known. A whole
boxful will do no harm; In fact, the more
you take the better. Stuart'a Charcoal
Loienges sre made of pure willow char
coal and mixed with just a faint flavor
of honey to make them palatable for you,
but not too sweet. You Just chew them
like candy. They are absolutely harmless.
Get a new, pure, sweet breach, freshen
your stomach for your next meal, and keep
the intestines in good working order. These
two things are the see ret of good health
and long life. You can get all the char
coal necessary to do these wonderful but
simple things by getting Stuart's Charcoal
Losengea. We want you to test these little
wonder workers yourself before you buy
them. So send us your full name and
address for a free sample of Stuart'a Char

his own soul?" He pointed out that the
two things contrasted are the world and a
soul. This is the strongest possible con
trast. If the question had been, what
profit It would be to a man' if he should
gain present pleasure and loso the possibil
ity of future Joy, It iroolj be a much lees
cogent proposition, because then the man
would at least have pleasure during his ex
Istcnce In the world. Rut the man wh
loses his own aoul has not even the satis
faction of enjoyment In this world.
"There are two heavens for the man who
leads the Christian life," said Dr. Torrey.
"It Is one heaven to live In the world with
the positive assurance of future salvation.
And then there Is the heaven which la the
haven of the soul after It has parted from
the body.
"Earthly pleasures are not only evan
escent, but they are poor and paltry com
pared with the grandeur of snlvatlr n. God,
Indeed, made man's soul on too vast a plan
for It to be satisfied with the things of tho
world. Augustine was right when he de
clared, 'O, God, Thou hast made us for
Thyself and our souls are never satisfied
until they rest in Thee.'
World Does Not Satisfy.
"It la a fact that nothing in this world
has the power to aatlsfy. Did you ever see
a company of millionaires walking down
the street singing? I think not. Million
aires do not often sing. But any day you
can see a company of Christian believers
marching down the street singing. Do tho
pleasures of the world satisfy? No. Did you
ever study the faces of the people at a
theater or a dance? They are a pitiable
sight. Does fame satisfy? Does worldly
wisdom satisfy? Goethe, probably the
greatest man of his time, cried In his dying
hour, 'More light, more lluht.' Herbert
Spencer, one of the grentest minds that
ever lived, shows In his autobiography
what an unsatisfied man he waa In spite of
his great learning.
"All these things of the world pnss away
and they are apt to paas away In a single
night or a single instant. At any moment
the man possessing great sums of money
may ie called to relinquish It and go hence,
as poor as the poorest pauper. Or, even If
life continues, he may lose his money at
any time through the superior shrewdness
of his fellow men.
"Honor Is Just as evanescent. I knew
of a great man In my boyhood. Ha waa
my Ideal of a statesman. He became a
United Slates senator from the state of
New York. He waa crowned with honor.
Then for a time I did not hear of him,
and I then learned that he was living In a
little old house, forsaken by friends,
scarcely ever seen upon the streets. Ilia
honor and fame had fled.
"The pleasures of the world are even
more fleetlnr. The dance, the theater, the
card party endure but a few hours.
Sonl Alone FJndnres.
"All these things pass away, but the
soul endures and the life offered to any
who will take It endures forever. What
folly, what stupendous folly It Is for any
aane person to sacrifice his immortal soul
for a few hours of worldly pleasure and
enjoyment! '
"Some people here tonight are sacri
ficing their souls in Just that way. They
are sacrificing them for a few dollars
that they get from the employment In
which they are engaged, which employment
they would have to give up If they became
Christiana. I knew one man who sacri
ficed his soul for one day's profits in a
candy store which he kept. He said he could
not accept Christ because if he did so he
would have to close hla store on Sunday.
He sold his Immortal soul entirely too
cheaply. Some of you are selling your
souls for the occasional enjoyment of
some worldly pleasure. You are selling
your souls too cheaply. The words of the
text ask 'What ahall It profit a man If
he gain the whole world and lose his own
soul?" The richest man on earth owns
but a very small fraction of the whole
world and most of the people own almost
none of It, and yet they are losing their
souls for the tiny fraction that they do
own, for the few paltry dollars that they
are able to earn.
"An hour of clearer vision la coming to
all. It will be an hour when the relative
Importance of the aoul and the thlnga of
earth will bo seen. .That hour may not
come until It Is too late. It Is the wise
man who prepares for the future."
