"Mr. Jefferls has told you something of
the-advantages of having a republican In
ctngre.s In this district. 11 me give you
an lnatancc. Iast spring I received a tele
gram saying that the roof had been blown
off Fort Crook. In ten hours I had passeo
a bill In the senate Appropriating $100,000
for repuirs. I sent It over to your disting
uished congressman, but evidently he was
not-ou good terms over there and ho could
pot. even gel his committee to ugiee on it
In an hour he came back and told me he
could do nothing. I then took a new tack,
pjaced It as a rider on another bill, and
fixed It so that he could not stop Its
passage through the house. Hud Mr. Jef
ferls been In congress there would have
been no delay and, also, there would have
been no failure In other legislation, as
there has been.
'As a last word let me ask you to' go to
the polls election day and vote for the
welfare of the American people and the)
progress and prosperity ot the American
public."
Mr. Jefferls apoke but few minutes,
but In that tlmo he convinced his bearers
ot the expediency of having a republican
member of congress from thin district In
that a republican, being' of the majoilty,
could accomplish much more, for the ma
jority rules. He gave several Instances,
one oi them being that of an old soldier
who,, applied through the democratic con
gressman for on Increase iji his pension.
After a couple of months the papers were
returned to him with the trite information
that nothing could be done. On the" advice
of a friend, the old soldier sent the papers
to one of the republican senators and In
two weekn he had the pension Increase.

REPIBL1CA1S AT SOUTH OMAHA
Senator Barken and Local Candi
dates Draw Blgr CroTfd. ' .
The procession has certainly started In
South Omaha which will, carry the banner
to victory on election day. 8enator Burkett
had the best 'audience of the campaign
beforo him Monday night. Kvery seat in
Ritchie's hall was filled and men were
standing up at the rear and sides. The
audience was exceptionally demonstrative.
F. C. Best, Tom A. itolllster, William G.
L're, C.eorge Brewer, J. G. Thlesen, Judge
Micomber and I'. G., Meyers, under the
leadership of Judge A. L.. Sutton,1 attacked
Uit Bryan fallacies U1 oj)en . ciftjqr and. the
slaughter of the "hobbyhorses" of democ
racy was terrible. , Following the candi
dates came Senator Burkett and A. W.
Jefferls and they hunted Bryan to the lll
; timber nnd up In shaggy bark of lue po-
luteal tree.
J. G. Thies'n. a member of the stats leg
I Islature. made an exceedingly witty speech
from the standpoint of a naturalised Rus
sian citisen. Ills best point was an expla
nation why Governor Oeorge Sheldon
I waited five days, or the limit, before sign
j lug the mi bill. He said. "When the
bill was presented, and before H was
sgned sverl tl)rosd presidents In
Nebraska telegraphed the governor not to
sign the bill, that It would be unconstitu
tional because It destroyed all profits In
traffic." Governor Sheldon told them In
reply that if they could show him by their
records that such was true he would vetoe
the bill. They brought him the records
and he spent the days In examining the
books, and at the end of the time he said;
"Tour books In my possession show that
you will still make a profit which Is suf
ficient under the law and I have the evi
dence of your own books to show for It.
Now I can sign the bill and you will not
be able to make a case against It." Had
the governor signed the bill on the spot
the roads would have Immediately gone
Into court, hoping by the Introduction ot
rart of the evidence to thwart the law.
And for that, the best governor Nebraska
ever had is being maliciously criticized by
his political enemies, who themselves voted
against the rate bill In the legislature.
Senator Burkett. although it waa nearly
10 p. m. when he arrived at the ball, kept
every man In the audience on tiptoe, not
knowing whether a laugh or a good round
cheer would follow his next sentence.
"The administration of public affairs be
longs, under our government, to the people.
We get at the truth of public needs through
the medium of politics In the best sense
of the term." The questions Involved are
so important thst It seems to me that
the people ought to take a little tTmj as Is
truly required to Investigate and see what
were the essential Issues. Don't be side.
tracked by a lot of casual Issues of events.
It Is far more Important in our scheme
of things that men should have a job and
fair wages than that the law of Injunction
should be wiped out. Jn China today men
are buying their chance to work. They
bid for one another's Jot) In a frightful
eompettion. No man can hold a Job mors
than sixty days there before It Is bid off
lo another man. AH trie world around,
it Is the great Issue, a chance to labor, to
earn with the hands and secure as many of
the comforts and opportunities possible for
the wife and the children at home. Ths
lack of a Job was what sent the Industrial
army to Washington under Cleveland's ad
ministration, praying that the government
engage In some public work such as canals
or roadways to give work to ths three mil
lions of the unemployed, and they wers
told to keep off the grass."
Tom Holllster told a good one. "A friend
said to me: 'Why Is Bryan like the Mis
souri?' What's the answer? 'Bryan ant
the river change courses so often, run for
ever and never dry up.' "
A. W". Jefferls cut Ms remarks short, as
the hour was very late before ha began.
In the brief time, however, he showed thst
he had a grasp on the situation and would
be far more effective In congress than a
democrat. Senator Burkett In his speech
also msde a plea for a republican con
gressman, for, he said, lie did not like to
be continually going over to the house of
representatives to get something done for
Omaha which Hitchcock could not do, be-
Ing out of sympathy with the majority.

These outfits not only make a

warmth protects the family health;
their cleanliness halves the clean

outwear the building and prove to be a permanent paying investment
far better than bonds at 6 per cent.
IDEAL Boilers arc made to fit 3 -room cottages to 90-room buildings or larger. They
are made for Hot-Water, Steam, or Vacuum heating for burning all kinds
of fuel, even to the cheapest of soft-coal screenings, gas house coke, etc.
They are made on the unit or sectional plan, so will pass through cellar
door of any building already erected, and can, be made larger or smaller if
building is later altered in size. They arc made of the finest grade of new
iron and arc put together so they cannot get out of order. They arc
absolutely safe a child can run one. Three or four gallons of water
added twice a season will keep the boiler filled. They take up all the
heat from the fuel, and deliver it just where needed without passing up
ashes or coal-gases to living-room. Fire runs without attention for at least
eight hours in coldest weather. Wc cannot here explain all so please
ask for free book.
!T IDtALr
IDEAL Boilers have large
fual-pots In which the air and
coal-gases thoroughly mix, as
in a modern gas or oil burner,
thus extracting every bit of

chimney.
Whether your building is old or new farm or city cast an early vote for release from the troubles
and expense of old-fashioned heating seven winter months ahead! Write, telephone, or call today.

of tho democratic platform has hefn over

and that la the first plank after the pro

can party for creating 99,31 new offlres In
tha last six years, ar.d makes an unfavor
able comparison with he (Cleveland and
McKlnley sdministratlons. U goes on to
"denounce this great and growing Increase

LINCOLN, Oct. 2'). To the Kditor of The
Bee: What Is a trust? Is It not a com
bination to maintain and advance prices?
Most assuredly.
Now wlmt biagei- trust Is thtie in the.
I'nited Slates than the Ijibor trust? Some
trusts will of their own free will lower
their prices, but this trust never.
Now the democratic party, or Bryan
(who Is the whole cheese) comes to this
trust and says to it: "You .lust Htatn wha4
you want and 1 will put II right In this
platform" Why? Simply because this
uurft hits lots of votes. And then he says:
"We will go out ami howl down ell the
other trusts," and lie rocs up and down
tlio country howling about the Steel trust,
the Beef trust, tne Oil trust, etc. But this
Labor trust (which not Infrequently Is Hi..
most ex8J.peiatlng and dialioliral of any
of the trusts! lie constantly pats on the
back and sas in It: "You vote for me. I
promise you hitf things." What incon
sistency! What hypocrisy:
Now Hie w riter believes in labor organi
zation". They are labor's only defense
against capital (unless It be co-operative
employment), but he believes they should
be known as what they are Labor trusts
and he aiiiensble to the law the same as

of the United States. He Is simply a four
flusher masquerading around behind the
mask of a hypocrite.
Yet while these great dangers threaten
us, we can all "praise Him from whom all
blessings flow" that at the present time
there are only two democratic senators
north of the Ohio river from Maine to
California, Teller of Colorado and New
lands of Nevada, both former republicans,
with protective tariff leanings. There is
also Warner of Missouri and Bradley of
Kentucky, besides the senators from Dela
ware, which gives the republicans thirty
majority In that body, with only one
third of its members elected every ensuing
two years. Senator Beveridge has also
declared that a considerable number of
the members fiom the south are conserva
tives, and would never support Bryan's
false theories and radical proposals. With
this stonewall confronting him, how could
Bryan accomplish anything whatever. Why
should he be elected? I cannot call to my
mind where he has performed one single
service in an official capacity that has
been of any value to the people of Ne
braska or the nation. He never tiled to
dominate and lead his party In the days
of Holcomb and Poynter. but he remained
