LONDON. Oct. V2.-M. Iswolsky, the Rus

pressing upon Sir Edward Grey, the British
secretary for foreign affairs, the necessity
that not only should a conference of the
powers be held to settle the crisis In the
near east, but that this should take under
advisement other , questions besides those
Involved In the annexation by Austria of
Bosnia and Herxegovlna and ths declara
tion of Rulgarlan Independence.
This change of front on the part of Great
Britain, which has caused great surprise,

"It may be affirmed with certainty that
both ministers concur In ths necessity for
a conference and that the pour parlers at
the Foreign office, following as they do
upon the Franco-Russian negotlatlona on
the subject, have smoothed away some of
the difficulties which were In the way. It
is now regarded as probable that the latest
events In the near east also necessitate
the enlarging of the scope cf the questions
to be discussed at the conference."

CHICAGO, Oct. 11 The third annual con
vention of the American Meat Packers'
association opened here today, with dele
gates present from all parts of the United
States. The meeting was called to order
by President James S. Agar of this city.
In his address President Agar psld his
compliments to the so-called "muckraker,"
saying that "prodding an Industry, In
which we are engaged, in the ribs with a
sharp stick has In the past been a highly
exhilarating pastime for certain people,
but Instead of correcting evils, which In a
great majority of cases existed only in the
willing Imagination of the author, a serious
and lasting Injury was Inflicted on the
commerce of our country."
The executive committee In Its report,
which was heartily endorsed by the con
vention, stated that during the las year
the association had taken an active Interest
In all of the Industrial movements which
tended to bring the Industries In a closer
relationship with the federal government
and that members of the association had
furnished valuable information to the com
mission appointed by President Roosevelt,
which conferred with a similar commis
sion from France for the purpose of ex
pediting trade between the two notions.
The committee also reiterated Its endorse
ment of the meat Inspection law, to which
It gave approval at the last convention.
Becretary of Agriculture James Wilson
and lr. A. D. Melvln, also of the Depart
ment of Agriculture, are expected to ad

LINCOLN. Nob., Oct. 12, 1908. To the People of Ne
braska: I submit for serious consideration the following state
ment showing what the republican party under the present
administration has done in Nebraska since 1906 for good gov
ernment and the public welfare.
Reduced the state debt from $1,917,000 to $600,000.
Reduced passenger fares to 2 cents a mile.
Reduced express rates 25 per cent.
Reduced freight rates on grain, live stock, fruit, lumber
and coal 15 per cent.
Saved shippers and passengers in reduced rates $6,000,
000, without reducing wages of employes or preventing reason
able earnings on capital invested.
Increased the value of railroad property for purpose of
geenral taxation $5,654,441.
Increased the value of railroad psperty for municipal
taxes in cities and villages, by means of terminal taxation law.
Passed an act to prevent corrupt lobbying and corrupt
practices affecting legislation. f
Abolished the free pass evil by enacting and enforcing
the anti-pass law.
Enacted a state-wide primary law requiring political par
ties to nominate their candidates, including congressmen and
United tSates senators, by direct vote of the people.
Controlled railroads and fixed rates through the railway
Put an end to rebates and discriminations In transporta
tion of freight and passengers.
Compelled the railroad companies to got permission from
the railway commission before changing rates.
Established the right of the state to enjoin corporations
from violating state laws to the Injury of the public.
Puaced telephone, telegraph, express and street railway
companies under the supervision and control of the railway
Stopped the sale of short-weight packages and adulterated
food, by enacting and enforcln gthe pure food law.
Increased the rate of interest on stats funds deposited In
banks 1 per cent.
Increased the state revenue by fees Imposed on foreign
and domestic corporations $40,000.
Increased the rate of Interest on bond Investments of tha
permanent school funds one-half of 1 per cent, or $10,930 a
year on investments since January, 1907.
Abolished speculation in unpaid stats warrants 'and In
creased the permanent school funds with the Interest thereon.
Kept the state Institutions in a first class condition, pro
vided the best of care for the wards of the state and managed
the institutions economically.
Passed and sustained in court a law to prevent unfair dis
crimination In trade for the purpose of driving a competitor
out of business.
Made railways liable to employes for Injuries resulting
from negligence of fellow-eervanta and other employes and re
pealed the statutory provlblon limiting to $5,000 the amount
recoverable for death by wrongful act.
This is the record briefly given of legislation and admin
istration during the last two years through the republican
party. All this has been done in the interest of the people of
this state. The republican pfrty continues to stand for those
things in legislation and administration which will promote
good government and prohibit any person or corporations
from enjoying special privileges at the expense of the public.
Our concern is to deal with all questions as they arise In a way
that will best promote and conserve the general welfare of our
state. There shall be no retreat.
I ask that the record of the republican party of deeds done
In this state during the last two yearsbe placed for consider
ation beside the democratic promises of the past and the pres
ent and appeal to the people of this state to stand by the new
deal and for the party and the men who steadfastly, with
honesty of purpose and without malice, have done so much for
the common cause of good government.
