S.l Tlt OMAHA, Oct. 30-To the Editor
o The lice: Ai you know, I have never
held nor souslit. nor will I seek or hold, a
polit ic.il office. Ycl I have given much
attention to public affniis. I believe every
K' il t ll xen eahould do s Especially have
1 lent my best efforts toward eh etlug to
pjblle of fee what 1 eonaUler the best type
ii. ir ciUzeiiMhip.
Mr. A. W: Jefferls, the republican eandl-
tie tor loiigrena from this district. 1s a
n an that I have known and known of for
tin- U.hi a.xteen yeare. Many of our Soutli
I'.iuiha ivpubllcan may not know him and
t f hU vterliiig iitialitlea, that have en
sealed him like a brother to all who know
Mm; hence tliu letter. Mr. Jefferia la a
magnificent example of our aelf-made men:
a tw that haa done so much toward the
.ipoul'ding of Our glorloua country, creat
ing udinliatlon al home and reapct from
liie mo i powerful of nationa. Thla man's
fundi) was of the beat, but, unfortunately,
wr lathrr fortunately for htm, the many
IrotiKts and slater at home compelled
him to work and work hard to acquire the
l.nlihed education he finally secured. For
lite want of the price of a meal, he has
more than once gone hungry. An un
usually gifted lawyer, a public speaker of
, ommandUif presence and polished, power
ful delivery, be la of a class, all too few, of
our men In i'Ubllc life, honest, aggressive,
clean to the very core, lie p-mm-snes every
i.ialitlcllon to mosl ably represent equally
well the working man, the business man
and the piufessioiiul man. During this
campaign, no candidate or newspaper has
liad aught to say against his spotless per
gonal or professional life.
Mr. Jcfferta' abilities and all- round good
qualities are such that In asking your sup
port and personal help In thla campaign
for him. I fel that I have never asked the
support of a cleaner .man or one better
able to fill to the entire satisfaction of
each and every constituent the high office
to which he aspires. I dp-m him most
worthy to dlsehsrge ably and honorably
our every trust.
Fourth Time lor G. M. II.
Mr. Jef ft ris' democratic opponent Is seed
ing tills office for the fo'urtli time. No one
will deny that Mr. Jefferis is at least as
capable In every respect as Ills opponent.
Then why not pass the honor around and
on to one whose ability, public splrltedness
and knowledge of this district s needs is
second to that of no man residing within
With a republican president, a republican
senate and a republican house we need a
republuan represt mai.ve In congiess from
thla district to represent us to I lie b.st ad
vantage. My views as above ai presented to you
enlhely uti my own initiative. Anyone per
sonally aiu.ua.ntid with Mr. Jeffcils knows
that 1 have not overest.mateu this big
luarted, inU Hi dual giani.
My convictions on the stale and national
issues are so strong that 1 tanwot refrain
from commenting thereon. I believe here Is
less excuse for a republican to vote Uie
democratic ticket next Tuesday than at
any other time in the lasl twenty years
and more reason why a democrat can
consistently vote for lepubllcan principles.
Al tae time the panic struck us last full,
tins country never enjoyed as great pros
perity as then. This trouble was admittcdly
iausd by a few large New York banks,
rotten to the very core. A panic would
have resulted, no matter what party had
been In power. Mr. Bryan himself has said
as much. The wonderful manner In which
the country has iscovered speaks volumes
for the confidence the nailou has in the re
publican party. With Mr. 'la It elected,
instiling a continuation of the policies tlu
resulted In the immense prosrily during
the last twelve years, I predict that in
six years more, confidence will bo fully
restored and business will again go on as
before th panic.
Pon t overlook that the republican party
platform calls for n revision of the tariff
immediately after election, that or par:y
f;ivc rs establishing postal savings batiks,
has passed an emergency currency law and
a ppom.ed a commission to study the fi
nancial system of other countries and will
frame a solid financial system for us, In
t.'u l of asking our Nebraska banks to
make up the losses occasioned by Wall
sue t gambling and wildcat banking else
where. . Let K.acu Slate Stand Atoae.
I.et each state be responsible for It's own
1 i . i. - ... .
aims, oecause a condition that might ef
lect New York's banks, as was the case
last fall, would not likely piuvallaJn Ne
baska Why should we people in Nebraska
make up for the rascality of New Y'ork
bankers? Why should Omaha banks who
have not lost a cent of their depositor's
money In forty-five years they've been in
business, be compelled to contribute HoO.'leO
eitcn yt-ar as the proposed guarantee law
would demand, to make up the losses of
mismanaged banks? Kour years from
now. after the state of Oklahoma has
tiled out their guarantee system, will be
lime enough to risk It as a national propo
sition. At It Is the Osklahoma system has
had no trial. A panic Is the thing that
testa the Idea on It's merits. I predict that
the guarantee liw of Oklahoma when put
to the real test will prove as shal
low as when the same plan has lieen
tried In the states of New Turk
and Michigan. The present guarantee
fond of Oklahoma is SIK.OmO. How long
would that sjm have lasted In New York
f'.ty last fall wheie the banks involved in
the panic there alone had deposits of $lo0
0.0iV? Why the $15,000 would hardly have
bought coffee and sandwiches for the bank
employ s during the run on the banks. To
a prai tleil man this "guarantee" plan is as
buslnei-sHke as Mr. Bryan's chimerical idea
of the government owning all the railroads.
The Interstate Commerce commission,
which ty tlie way, does not over-estimate
the value of rallioad properties, placed the
value if the railroads of this country at
$18.UOOO.OUO. When Mr. Uryun figured how
long he'd have to stay on the lecture plat
form to earn this amount of inon. y. he
thought that too much of a good thing, even
as well us he likes to "orale." Mr. Uryun
should at least have noted one fact that
every Kun an traveler comments on, that
Is, the miserable service and equipment of
tlie government owned railroads of Europe.
Mr. l'.ran in many ideas he advuncts and
has advanced, does not appear to profit b..
the mistakes and e.xp.-l l nees of otln is.
Another Inxlance 1 might mention is the
free trade diietrine given such a thorough
and sorrowful trial in earlier limes no-
tably. In 1SH1. Why bting distress to out
business interests again and poverty to our
laboring men? I consider Mr. Uryun the
most unsafe and unpiactieal man who
ever attained any prominence In our nii
tlouul life, and 1 find tlie business men
with whom I come in contact are almost
unanimously of the same opinion. As a
man I esteem Mr. Kryan greatly, but as
I see 11 he is most unfit for the presidential
Hruohlleau Tariff Protects.
Remember that it Is the republican policy
of a protective tariff Hint protects Ameri
can woikmen from free trade and Btaivu
tiKl wages and provides more of the com
fort Hid luxuries for their homes th-in Is
enjo.Ned by woikmen in any other nation
on tlie globe. Ot r party la pledged to a
tetention of this policy, with such revisions
as are Just and fair. The democrats are
opposed to the entire principle and avor
the fiee trade policy. Ask your father or
anyone acquainted with the effects of this
doctrine and democratic rule in lt7, In 1S73
or lvi'i. Don't forget 10-cent corn In 'S3.
