I told some weeks ago of the complaint
cf the local government board of the
method of dealing with tramps adopted by
the Ballymoney Hoard of Ouardians. It
will be remembered that after the adoption
of the cold needle bath at the workhouse
the number of tramps cslling there dropped
from eighty a week to ten. The board, act
ing under the orders of the local govern
ment board, dropped the cold bath and the
number of tramps at once rose to fifty a
week. The board has now decided that It
will be cheaper for it to employ a doctor
to puss on the physical fitness of the
tramps for the cold water ordeal, and thus
satisfy the local government board, than
to continue the hot bath which la now be
Pratt Oat of Tramps.
The Xewry Board of Guardians, however,
liaa discovered a still better way. In a re

Questions that Mr. Bryan Chooses to Ignore
A few v celts ago the editor of The Bee addressed to
Mr. Bryaa sovtial uncomfortable questions which he
evaded, answerlug by saying that he would take no notice
of them because the questioner merely wanted to attract
attention. Since then Mr. Bryan has overcome his aver
sion to taking notice of The Bee and Its editor as evi
denced by his speeches and statements to the press. In
asmuch as Mr. Bryan is about to speak in Omaha, per
haps he will be willing to take notice of The Bee a little
more to the extent of answering a few pertinent qusttonu.
1. You, Mr. Bryan, are making much of democratic
friendship for labor. Why is It that practically no legis
lation to protect labor has been enacted in the southern
states In which democrats have absolute control? Why
are there no child labor laws In tht) south? Why are
there no laws to protect women wage earners in the
south ? You and your fusion friends had absolute execu
tive and legislative control of Nebraska for several years.
Why was no legislation to protect labor passed then?
Why did the wage workers of Nebraska have to wait for
succeeding republican legislatures to remove the $5,000
death damage limit, to get an equitable employers' liabil
ity act and to get a child labor law?
Z. You, Mr. Bryan, are trying to make your para
mount issue. "Shall the people rule?" The most ad
vanced step toward popular rule has been through the di
rect primary. Why is it, Mr. Bryan, that your fusion
friends when in complete control did not give Nebraska
a direct primary law? Why Is it that the republicans of
Nebraska had to secure the direct primary law over the
opposition of the democrats? Why is It that the progres
sive republican states have enacted direct primary laws
to bring the filling of offices closer to the people, while
in the democratic states of the south direct primary laws
have been enacted avowedly to disfranchise the people?
3. You, Mr. Bryan, are bidding for office on your anti
trust remedies. Why is It that all the effective legisla
tion against illegal combinations have been enacted by
republican congresses and for the most part by republican
state legislatures, while the democratlo states hare no
effective anti-trust legislation? x
4. You, Mr. Brjan, are bidding tor labor votes by
promising to abolish the writ of injunction in labor dis
putes. Do you not know that injunction abuses have
boen chargeable as much to state courts aa to federal
courts? Can you name a single democratic state which
has pased a law to prevent the abuse of injunction by
state courts? Why was no such law passed in Nebraska
when your fusion friends were in complete control?
6. You, Mr. Bryan, are bidding for votes on your
scheme of bank deposit guaranty. Oklahoma Is the only
state that has put such a law on Its statute books. Why
have none of the other democratlo states enacted deposit
guaranty laws? You, personally Introduced such a bill

TURKISH MUTINEERS KILLED
Threatened Outbreak Quelled by
Dlarharare of One Volley from

CONSTANTINOPLE, Oct. 31-A threat
ened outbreak on the part of a company
of Turkish troops attached to the garrison
at Ylldtz Kiosk was promptly put down
this morning with a single volley from a
Joyal battalion. Three of the mutineers
Were killed and fifteen wounded
The mutinous spirit manifested Itself
when the company was assembled, and
threatened for a few moments to result In
serious trouble. But a hurry order was
Issued and a battalion from a regiment

ficed to coy the mutineers.
The rebellious troops were under orders
to leave for the provinces, but they re
fused to depart, withdrew to a field near
the barracks, and defied their officers.
The battalion from Salonlkl, which was
drafted into the capital especially because
the men were staunch supporters of the
constitution, wss ordered to attack the
rebels. They fired one volley, with the
result set forth, after which the mutineers
surrendered and were made prisoners. Later
they were drawn up on the public square,
tied together and exhibited to the assembled
troops aa rebels who had broken their mili
tary oath. This prompt suppression is
expected to have a salutary effect on the
remainder of the Yildlz Kiosk garrison.
which is suspected of being antagonistic
to the constitution.
Into congress in the early '90s. Why did you not get
your fusion friends to enact the bill as a state law when
they were in complete control of Nebraska? A deposit
guaranty bill, whlph you endorsed, was offered in con
gress last winter as a substitute for the Vreeland bill, but
only a handful of the democratic congressmen voted for
it, the remaining others voting against it or refusing to
vote. The only democratic congressman from Nebraska
was one of those who refused to vote. It your endorse
ment of that bill was unable to make these democratic
congressmen vote for it last winter, will you be able to
make them vote for It next winter?
6. You, Mr. Bryan, are trying to make much of the
popular election of United States senators. We have the
statement of Mr. Tibbies, made three years ago, that a
large sum of money, said to be $15,000 or $20,000, was
contributed by "Ryan. Belmont ft Co." in 1904 through
your brother-in-law toward your campaign for United
States senator in Nebraska., Is Mr. Tibbies riHtakun in
his assertions? If so, why did yon not correct them
long ago? It not, why did you not put your namo on (he
ballot as a candidate for senator and ask a vote of popu
lar preference under the Nebraska law which .1'es you
that right? Why did the democrats refuse to submit
candidates for United States senator to popular vote in
Nebraska in 1898, in 1900 and in 1904?
7. You, Mr. Bryan, are making much of publicity of
campaign contributions. Nebraska has a camp&l&i pub
licity law, but it was enacted, as you know, by a repub
lican legislature after your fusion state administration
had failed to pass such a law. Why Is It, Mr. Bryan,
that your brother-in-law and democratic campaign man
agers have persistently and wilfully violated the Nebraska
campaign publicity law? Why, if you are so devoted to
campaign fund publicity, were you bo insistent that the
$50,000 contribution to your campaign made by the Ben
nett will should be kept secret?
8. Finally, Mr. Bryan, wll you please tell us why you
keep up the dishonest fusion masquerade in Nebraska?
Why do yon permit your democratic presidential electors
to bo mlsbranded on the official ballot as populluu? Are
they not trying to get votes by false pre-lenses? 1 It it not
for the purpose of fooling populists Into voting for jou.
who would otherwise vote for the populist oandMate for
president? If this fusion trick as played in Neorntka Is
defended by you as legitimate, why do you not try to
play it in other states?
Tltec questions may not all be equally weighty, lmt
your frank and unequivocal answers to them would udd
to the amenities of the campaign. It is expooUd that
you will try to get back by harping on The B?e"3 laiff
mistake and by asking other questions In return, as you
usually do. These questions, however, all relate to the
issues of the campaign, with personalities eliminated, and

V1ND DP BY THROWING DIRT
Democrats Close Campaign with Some
ATTACKS ON TAFT AND SHELDON
Elmer K. Thomas of Omaha and

Tools of Tom Allen In
(Krom a Btaff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Oct. 31. (Special.) The demo
cratic state commit'.ae practically wound
up its campaign tonight. Ita finish was
tho dirtiest and most reprehensible of any
campaigns In recent years. Tho state has
ben flooded with libelous, scandalous, un
truthful attacks on both Judge Taft and
Governor Sheldon. These attacks were
held back until the last minute In the hope
that they would not be discovered by the
republicans In time to refute them. In
each instance the democratic state com-
mittve securrd a willing tool to do its
dirty work. Elmer E. Thomas of Omaln
fathered the untruthful attack on Governor
Sheldon; E. Arthur Carr of Lincoln fath
ered the attack on Judge Taft and numer
ous other tools Jumped on republican i'egts
latlve candidates In various counties.
Elmer E. Thomas wroto his circular on
the letter heads of the Allied Temperance
forces. The president of this organization,
Dr .Samuel Zane Batten, said the circular
had not been authorized by the league. C.
C. Flansberg, a member of the campaign
committee, denounced it as "a dirty piece
of politics which should have no effect."
Csrr Repudiated at Lincoln.
E. Arthur Carr used the letter hed of
tho Civic League of Lincoln, of which he
at one time was secretary. He signs the
Utter and the Impression Is naturally given
that he signs it as secretary of tho league.
C. C. Flansberg Is president of this or
ganization and George T. Tobey Is secre
tary. Both denounced the circular as hiv
ing come from Carr Individually and not
from the organization.
Carr was repudiated by the Civic league
and forced to resign. Ho had letter heads
printed and he set out on the letter heads
the following: "Hon. C. C. Flansberg.
president; Prof. Barker, treasurer, and Dr.
E. Arthur Carr. secretary." Mr. Flansberg
cfused to use the lette heads and for
good reasons he and the others forced
Carr to resign. Carr kept these letter
heads. Flansberg said language could not
be found too strong In which to denounce
this action of the deposed secretary. Carr

The action of the democratic state com
mittee in resorting to these Tammany tac
tics at the last minute has bullded up party
lines aa nothing else could do, and reports
to the republican state committee thla
morning Indicate that instead of helping
the democrats the circulars hava helped
the entire republican ticket, national, state,
legislative and county.
Attacks have been made by circulars on
county candidates In Lancaster and re
ports' have been received at the headquar
ters that the Gage county republican legis
lative candidates have been attacked by
outsiders in an effort to help out the demo
cratic candidates In that county. Two of
the Gage county candidates are up for re
election, Adam McMullen and Dan Klllen
who served in the last session of the
legislature. It is reported that a vicious
attack has been made on these two men in
an effort to help out their democratic op
ponents. These men made the race for
their nominations In Gage county before
the people who elected them two years
ago and both were nominated by large
majorities. Each rn on his record made

Bryanlsm in Philippines.
E. W.. Crook, member of Company L, '
First Nebraska Volunteer infantry, whs
was in the Philippines prior to and after
the nomination of Mr. Bryan In 1900 says It
was an open boast among the Filipinos
that If the democratic ticket was elected
they would gain their independence and
that the nomination of Mr. Bryan and his
declaration that .he would withdraw our
armies from the archipelago caused the
Insurrection to break out afresh, after It
had practically been quelled.
When the Americans first went to the
Philippines, fifty-seven languages were
spoken among the natives, the tribes being
unable to communicate with one another
and having no alphabet or written lan
guage. When Judge Taft visited the
archipe'ago he saw at once that the first
thing to do was to educate the natives and
the lust time he was there he was met
at the whaif by i.'W native school childixu
When Mr. Bryan visited the Islands he
wus met by no one ahd his presence was
known to only a few
On account of Bryan's .advocacy of
withdiaaing from the Philippines and (he
resultant killing of many mora Americas
soldiers, the Spanish-American war veter
ans will vote the democratic ticket almost
to a man," sas Mr. Crook.
