more notable than anywhere else, in Wall
street, where there Is lively speculation
in stocks there would be a willingness to
pay higher rates ot Interest for loans, and
correspondingly, banks and bankers would
be tempted to pay higher rates of Interest
on deposits than In places where conserva
tive enterprises are the order of the day.
What would this mean? Money would go
from localities where It ought to stay,
would be taken away from legitimate en
terprises that are sound and sane, and
sent to speculative centers to be Invested
and in many lnstancea to be lost,
This would be the' result; Permanent,
legitimate enterprises would receive a set
back; factories which ought to be estab
lished and enterprises which ought to be
undertaken could not obtain money be
cause the -capital of tha communities In
which they are located would have been
diverted to other localities where the risks
are more numerous and extreme and where
higher rates of interest would be paid.
Under Mr. Bryan's scheme the temptation
would constantly confront the over am
bitious and unconscrvatlve banker to make
loans which Should not be made or to bark
enterprises which -ought nut to be under
taken In other words, to plunge Into spec
ulation as we had It under the greenback
Itraponalblllty Essential In Banking".
You cannot make the business ot banking
normal and as It should be unless there Is
an adequate sense of personal responsibil
ity on the part of the Individual banker,
unless he kpows he cannot lend or Invest
Injudiciously without Involving the failure
of his bank and the reproach and loss and
shame which go with It. Now, If he feels
that he deposits of his bank will be repaid
to his depositors whether he manages the
bank well or ill he will not renounce spec
ulation, and he will be constantly Open to
the temptations of recklessness and per
haps of dishonesty.
Again, whnt the depositor wants Is the
immediate payment of his demands at the
moment it Is made. He wants his money
then, on the spot, not at some time later
on. No system of guaranty that can be de
vised would provldu for the actual and
Immediate payment of all demands in a

DOIt.HELLY UPHOLDS PRESIDENT
Secretary of General Arbitration
Board Takes This Stand,
WASHINGTON, Oct. 2S.-Presldent
Roosevelt today made public a long letter
from. Samuel B. Donnelly, secretary of the
general arbitration board of the New York
building trades, in whloh Mr. Donnelly
upholds the president in his presentation
of the record of Judge Taft as set forth
by htm in a letter to P. H. Grace of Bing
hamton, N. Y., recently.
Mr. Donnelly declares that the president's
letter abiy shows-that Judge Tuft is not
an enemy of labor." From personal knowl
edge of Judge Taft's record as governor
,o the Philippines and in Panama, where
he bad extensive relations wjth labor, Mr.
Donnelly unqualifiedly supports the presi
dent's estimate of Mr. Taft's character.
Mr. Donnelly cites an Interpretation of the
federal eight-hour law reported In 1907 and
Mr. Taft's longevity pay Increase order of
that year as Instance's of the Judge's fair
ness toward labor. Continuing Mr. Don
"The professional democratic labor work
ers who have been on the Job in all recent
campaigns are leading the movement In the
east. No spontaneous movement against
Judge Taft has appeared among the work
ers and none but salaried officers are on
the stump against him. Those of us who
remember the labor conditions during the
last democratic administration are of the
opinion that If Bryan is elected ' or the
tariff Is revised on the proposed demo
cratic plan of 'a tariff for revenue only,'
we will all have plenty of time for Jury

His name Is Garrett Johnson. It la the
general opinion that Johnson. If ho can be
compelled to talk, could tell mora" about
tho recent outrages than any other man

alleged to have been connected, actively

whipped for leaving her husband and an
other for being of til-repute. ;

BRYAN NOT A VOTECETTER
(Continued from First Page.)
traditions, true to the people and strong In
the confidence of Nebraskans.
Journal Bess for Merry.
In the ordinary sense of the term, that is
not a prayer meeting In progress at the
corner of Ninth and P streets. The loud
supplications heard there almost every day
are to Tom Allen, chairman of the demo
cratic state committee. The supplications
are from the State Journal outfit.'
' So In one sense it might ' be called a
prayer meeting with most unusual fervor.
The State Journal outfit has been forced
to get down and beg and pray and plead
with Tom Allen to keep him from filing a
suit to compel the Bryanlsed money-mad
sheet to publish the democratic dope per
contract. This Information comes straight
from the democratic state headquarters.
But Tom Allen Is too wise to bring that
suit. He has nothing particular to gain by
It, because before it could be decided the
election wilt have been held. But each
morning regularly Tom Allen announces
that very, shortly "I shall bring that suit."
That is sufficient to bring the Bryanlsed
organ around to Its knees.
The columns of the afternoon and the
morning sheets show the hold Tom Allen
has upon this "republican" organ. Dally
it knocks on Taft and daily It parades
Bryan. Whenever it quits then comes that
threatened suit, exposure and worse hu
miliation. The Journal, it is reported, has
an idea, that it can make its readers believe
it did not agree to sell Its space to the
democrats if it does , not publish display
advertisements fer Mr. Bryan.-
In the opinion of republicans who read,
or rather take the sheet, tlve Journal has
accepted one of Tom Allen's proposals
either ?arry out the contract or give
Bryan, the best of it. It is certainly not
helping the republican, cause.
And what is said about the Journal ap
plies exactly the same to the Lincoln
Dally Star. Its contract with Tom Alien
was just as binding. It gets out of pub
lishing the prepared dope in exactly the
There Is no doubt the exposuro of tiie
plan of these two sheets prevented the
working of the same game they worked
two years ago. They sold apace to op
ponents of republican candidates and per
mitted these candidates to be vllllfled
and slandered. Then when the republi
can candidates attempted to reply it cost
them to get that reply In the State Journal-News
75 cents an inch and in the
Lincoln Dally Star 60 cents.
So all that was necessary for the so
licitors of these "republican" sheet to
do when the cash drawer needed replen
ishing was to hunt up a disgruntled dem
ocrat and get him to lambast the re
publican candidate. When Mr. Republi
can attempted to get himself set straight
before the people he could do so if he
paid 76 cents an inch to the Journal
News and 60 cents to the Star.
The Journal-News is the outfit that re
fers to itself aa "progressive" and "re
form" and set out to cut the pattern for
all republicans in Nebraska.
Only Bryan to Be Boosted.'
Here is some Information for the friends
of A. C. Bhallenberger. In that space the
democratic state committee contracted for
in the Lincoln State Journal and the Lin
coin Dally Star only Mr. Bryan was to be
boosted. No effort waa to be put forth
to help out the csndldacy of Mr. Shallen
berger. In fact Tom Allen himself gave
Mr. Bhallenberger to understand that he as
chairman of the democratic state commit
tee could do nothing for him. All ot his
time and attention, he Is quoted as saying,
would be devoted to boosting Bryan.
This Is what caused the racket between
Allen and Chris Oruenther. The latter in
alsted on looking after every one on the
state ticket but Allen, who was chosen by
Mr. Bryan for that very purpose, refused to
look after anyone but Bryan. So Oruenlhor
has practically devoted all of Ills time lately
trying to patch up an organisation for Shal-lenbi-igr.
Right in the headquarters of the
democratic committee theie are Bryan men
who w.U not hesitate to say that Shallen-
berger has no chance of election and noth
ing is being done for him except that what
Oruenther la trying to do.
In fact bryan men are trying to trade
off Bhallenberger for Bryan votes. - Frank
Brown. Mayor Brown's son, offered to vote
for Sheldon If one of Sheldon's appointees
would vote for Bryan.
An employe in the office of the Commoner
has openly stated he intends to vote for
S1 friends of Bhallenberger Wirt get no
help from Mr. Bryan. Tom Allen has
thrown the harpoon into the Alms, man. Of
rnurne he has a reason. Shallenberger has
little respect for the democratic candidate
for president, tie expressed his opinion of
him back In 1904. Bryan has never for
given tho Alma man for speaking out in
meeting the things so many democrats be
lieve. And the order l.aa gone out to pay
no attention to Bhallenberger. ,
He worts from Over the gtate.
Keports continue to cuius Into republican
state headquarters indicating a decisive re
publican victory next Tuesday. Here are

BERtjIN. Oct, Il was learned here
authoritatively today that the Bulgarian
government, In view of the cessation of
military preparations on the part of Turkey
and acting on the advice of the powers, has
decided to release tomorrow the 75,000 re
servists who have been held to the colors.
It Is hoped that this measure will reduce
the tension between Sofia and Constanti
nople. SOFIA. Bulgaria, Oct. .-The derision of
Bulgaria to disband Its reserves and make
a financial compensation to Turkey, was
brought about by the presentation of what
was practically an ultimatum by Great
Brltlan, France and Russia, who were
supported by Germany and Italy.
Identical notes from the first named three
powers Were presented to the Bulgarian
government. They demand the disband
ment of the Bulgarian reserves within three
days and the promise to send delegates to
Constantinople to negotiate the question
of financial compenaation for Turkey. It
wis made clear that on compliance wl'h
these demands depended alt hope for the
recognition of Bulgarian Independence. In
reply to these communications the Bul
garian government signified Its willingness
to conform to the demands therein set

Those familiar with the Scandinavian
character declare that having aided in the
nomination of Mr. Veesey they will feel
In honor bound to support him at Hie polls.
It Is safe to predict that lf Mr. Vessey
succeeds In securing $0 per cent of the
Scandinavian vote in South Dakota he will
be elected governor. That he will secure
even a larger percentage Is the confident
belief of republicans who are In close touch
with political affairs In the state.
The vast majority of stalwart and pro
gressive republicans are giving the tlckot
loyal support. The stalwarts have always
prided themselves on their republicanism,
and In this campaign will first of all re
member that they are republicans who are
able to give and receive blows In prelim
inary struggles between republican factions.
but who, notwithstanding the outcome of
these preliminary fights, still are repub
licans above everything else and at the
election will line up for their party ticket.
They realise that the primaries have
taken the place of party conventions and
that It is the duty of all members of a
party to abide by the result of the primary,
as only by doing this can party organisa
tions be maintained. It is significant of
the harmony now existing among South)
Dakota republicans. when facing the com
mon enemy the democratic party that of
the more than 100 newspapers which during
the campaign, culminating In the June pri
maries supported the cause of .the stalwart
republicans, only three or. four are luke-

' Stalwart And' .Insurgent republicans are

speakers from both factions doing their ut
most for the cause of republicanism and to
bring about the defeat of the democratic
party at the election next Tuesday.
The republicans confidently expect to elect
more than 100 of the 149 members of the
next legislature. The republican vota on
Joint ballot may reach as high as 125, with
only seventy-five votes necessary to elect

steadily ever since, until a few days ago,
