FAKK SYMPATIIV FUR SOLDI KRS
(.rand Island Democrat! Papier
thanRea Tnae This Year.
GRAND 1SUAND, Neb.. Oct. 31.-(Spo-I11I
Telegram.) Several thousand Issues of
the Grand Island democrats were sent
nut this week to old soldiers In other parts
of the state, containing several articles of
a grossly mlsrepresentatlve nature and un
justly assailing the record of Governor
Sheldon. Most of the articles are written
by a socialist member of the home nnd a
few by democrats. That the pseudo-sympathy
of the democratic party will have
little weight here Is a foregone conclu
sion. Its anxiety for the welfare of the
old soldiers Is such that is denounced by
them, two years ago, for voting for the
legislative candidates, declaring that they
had no right to vote for these and lesser
officials. It said:
"This year the majority of the taxpay
ers said they wanted Ryan and Thomssen
(legislative candidates) and Cleary to rep
resent them, hut the home, which has no
financial Interest In the county affairs
said: No. you can't have them we will
decide that matter for you, for of course
we know best what vou need."
The Anxelger Herald, democratic, was
even more specific In Its hope that the
members of the home could be prevented
from voting In the future. It said:
Our election of last Tuesday has evi
denced once again that the citizens and
taxpayers permanently located here have
really nothing to nay by reason of the fact
that the old soldiers, sustained by the state,
prescribe (or us whom we shall have for
officials. In spite of the fact that nearly
every democrat was elected It Is of no avail,
for the Soldiers' Home comes down with
200 solid republicans and throws aside the
will of the taxpayers. I'nder these circum
stances the entire republican ticket was
elected, with the exception of F. W. Aahton
for senator. Could we throw out the
Soldiers' Home the enttre democratic
ticket would have been elected.
The genuineness of the sympathy for the
old soldier, whom these papers are now
trying Inveigle Into a vote for the demo
cratic ticket Is thus apparent. C. G. Van
ness, a member of the Home, and republi
can committeeman, vigorously denounced
the Issue of the democrats as mlsrepresen
tative of the old soldiers of the Home as a
clars. "We know," said Mr. Vanness "that
Governor SheMon was not responsible for
the turmoil that has been created In this
matter, and we also know that the
cowardly, untruthful, scurrilous and
malicious attack made by the Democrat Is
made for political purposes only and not
one of sympathy with the old soldier, either
with reference to pensions or anything else.
And I want to urfcu upon all old soldiers
over the sttte not to .be misled by this
sheet. If the,- do permit themselves to be
deceived they will be doing an Injustice not
only to themselves, but also to us."

Robblns and the republican candidates ad
dressed the voters at the opera house
Thurs-day night. Every seat In the house
was taken and many were compelled to
stand. The audience gave the speakers
the closest attention. H. G. Wellensick pre
sided t the meeting and the Slemer'a band
furnished the music.
BEATRICE, Neb., Oct. St. (Special.)
Preceded by a spectacular torch, light and
fireworks demonstration, a big republican
meeting was held at the Paddock opera
houso last evening to wind up the cam
paign In this city. Senator Burkett was
the speaker of the evening. D. J. Killen.
Adam McMullln and Lloyd Crocker, county
candidates, also making brief addresses on
state and local Issues. Senator Burkett
declared Bryan doesn't know what he Is
talking about. He doesn't know what laws
have been passed, doesn't read the federal
statutes, and has proposed a lot of re
forms long after the republican congress
has enacted them. Democrats demand pop.
ular election of senators,' but the southern
democratic members wont vote for It:
they demand guarantee deposits, but only
nine democrats voted for It In the two
houses of congress at the last session. The
rise and fall of 16 to 1, Imperialism, mili
tarism and democratic Issues were humor
ously dealt with by the speaker.
