rumor around the state house . in other
corners of Lincoln as to the Idei.t.ty of the
person. Furthermore, there Is a very pro-
nnunced conviction here that Mr. Potta
wai net given thla understanding by any
one who thought he was telling the truth,
and still further it Is believed that thla
Imply reveala . a systematic plot by the
denoerat c leader to decerve pops all over

they have to pay t5 they won't file and
Mr. Watson won't get any men on his

TEACHERS WHO GET TOP PAY
Hundred and Fifty-Two Elementary
and Fenr In the High
One hundred and fifty-two teachers Ini the
elementary schools and four teachers In the
high school will reach the maximum salary
scale this year. This Is tinder the new
schedule adopted last September. Thirty
two teachers In the grades reached the
maximum last year. Next year the promo
tions In the grades will doubtless be larger
while four teachers In the high school are
scheduled to reach the maximum salary In
another year's time.
Under the new schedule, a teacher starts
In the grade schools at a salary of $6(10 a
year, $120 higher than the start under the
old schedule. This Is for teachers who are
normal school and college graduates. Teach
ers who have not had that training, start
In the grade schools at a salary of $420 the
first year and receive $450 the second year,
being placed on the same plan with grad
uates at the opening of the third year.
From then on they receive the same salary
raises as the graduates.
Starting at $o00 the first year, the college
graduate receives $560 the second year, and
together with the non-graduate, $900 the
third year. The fourth year, the teachers
receive S50, fifth year $700, sixth year $740,
seventh year $780 and eighth year $3U.
hlch Is the maximum under the new
schedule. The old schedule was a follows:
First year $380, second year $427.50, third
year $475, fourth year $422.50, fifth year $570,
sixth year $617.60, seventh year $665, the
High School Salaries.
Under the new schedule in the high school
the teachers receive $fiG6 the first year, $760
the second, $S3 the third, i'.ftO the fourth
and $1,00 the fifth year, which is the maxl
mum. Of the aixty-one teachers in the
high school, thirty-nine now receive the
maximum pay. Heads of departments re
calve $1,140 the first year and $1,233 the
second. There are twelve heads of de
The promotion of the teachers Is not
made simply on point of service, for merit
largely enters Into the raise of salaries
This Is especially the case with elementary
teachers after they have taught six years.
Before advancing to the $780, seventh year
salary, they must prepare a thesis on
some subject given tiiem by the superln
tendent, and this procedure Is duplicated
when they complete the seventh year and
become candidates for the maximum sal
ary of $S30, paid teachers In the elementary
school, f jr the eighth year work, and sub
sequent labors In the school room.
Counting principals, supervisors and night

DABLMAN ON PROHIBITION
Mayor of Omaha Debates at Bellevue
with W. C. T. U. Leader.
GREAT CS0WD OUT TO LISTEN
He Is Denounced aa Exponent of
Anarchy In Standing; I'p ior
"Personal Liberty" Sends
a Shot Back.
If I am elected governor of Nebraska,
and I expect to be, I will never sign a pro
hibition bill and will oppose all laws,
against Sunday theaters and base ball. I
think prohibition strikes at the very foun
dation of this nation of ours and robs the
Individual of his personal rights."
This waa Mayor Dahlman's challenge to
Mrs. Mary Harris Armor at the Bcllevue
Chautauqua Wednesday night.
"Mayor Dahlman may not be governor
after his speech tonight," was the response
of Mrs. Armor, when she spoke In answer
to the talk of Omaha's executive. Mrs.
Armor is presldrnt of the Women's Chris
tian Temperance union of Atlanta, Gtv.
There was a huge crowd In the giant
tent and people were standing many deep
abeut the sides as tlie debate went on. The
argument was many times heated and car
ried a vein of sarcasm, but the talkers
were good natured, though Intensely In
earnest and when the end was reached.
though Mrs. Armor had decidedly the bet
ter of her antagon st In the number of sup
porters and the warmth of their expression
of enthusiasm. It wss evident the mayor
had many sympathizers In the company,
who. If they did not side with htm politi
cally, applauded his views on prohibition.
Mrs. Armor commented on this in her
The program Included two vocal solos
by Miss Elizabeth Hamllng.of Omaha, a
clever talk by George R. Stuart of Georgia
on the subject, "Is Fun Divine or Devil

bald head and remarked, "This la not to
be a halr"-pulllng match."
It was generally known that the mayor
Intended his talk to lie his first speech In
bis campaign to lass., the governorship,
and so It was of double Interest. At the
outset he remarked that he d!dn't know
how the debate would turn out, but ex
pressed lils belief that he would at least
be able to get home after It. even If he
could not go to his office the next day.
Then he made his pledge to veto all meas
ures aiming at personal liberty.
Whv do people slnsle out the saloon
for the.lr opposition, when there are lots
of other tlilnps that merit It?" asked Mayor
Dahlman. "People who wear diamond
rings when they ought to wear piatn gom
ones and men who ride In automobiles
when they ought to walk, are not touched,

Instead of letting them parade the streets

young men, I can do more for a youth who
has been arrested for drinking too much
by pardoning him and giving him a talk
In my office than any preacher In Omaha
could do In the same case.
"My home Is a Christian home." de
clared Mayor Dahlrran, "and my wife
and children Join in their prayers to God
every day of the year. But I want to
say that my children are given perfect
freedom In such matters aa Indulging their

liberality of views children become edu

The mayor took up the practical side
of prohibition, referring to the states
where It has been tried, and declared It a
failure. He sold statistics would bear him
out. In Omaha, he said, the records
would show there are more drunks In
Omaha every Monday morning since the
new closing order has been enforced upon
the people than before the Sunday closing
