CADET TAYLOR NAILS FAKE
At Peace with 0. 0. P. and All World
SAYS SO ON HIS ANNIVERSARY
Celebrate Fortieth Wedding; IVatal
Day by Giving- tha Lie to Re
ports la the Donsoeratlo
"This Is my fortieth wedding anniversary
and so far as I know, I am at peace with
all the world, except politically with the
World-Herald," says Cadet Taylor.
"Forty years ago today, I pulled an old
Washington hand press, working off the
weekly edition of my newspaper, the Jndex,
at Wenona, III., and my. roller boy was
Charley S. Dlehl, now Colonel Charles 8.
Dlehl, assistant general manager of the
Associated Press. I may become reminis
cent enough to say that the old Washing
ton hand press was a good one, and when
press day was over we didn't need to play
golf, for additional exercise. Charley S.
Dlehl was a mighty bright boy, and I can
see him yet with his face and arms well
covered with ink, in his big paper apron,
industriously keeping out of the way of
the flying frlsket. He made good as a
printer's devil, as he has In his profession
as reporter, correspondent and assistant
general manager of the Associated Press.
"'After the day's work was done, I took
a train to LaSalle, 111., where our wedding
took place, forty years ago this evening.
Of the large number present, I think but
six are now living. 1
"But I didn't mean to Indulge In remin
Inlscences. What I wished to say was that
the World-Herald has put me In the wrong
pew. I am a republican, straight and
simon-pure, because I believe In Its prin
ciples. I think President Taft's administra
tion will go down In history as one ' of
tha best and most conservative we have
ever had and Tha Bee isdolng the right
thing In glvlhg It a hearty support, as
are both Senators Burkett and Brown. I
have lived long1 enough to see numerous
attempts made "to sidetrack the Grand Old
Party along the lines of liberal republic
anism, g'reenbaeklsm, free sllverlsm and
now some of our good but misguided polit
ical associates are being patted on the
back by Our democratic friends and called
progressive republicans or Insurgents. If a
man Is a republican, he stands tor well
known principles, and he doesn't need to
tie up with any 'Issues' to better define
his political standing. 1

Another offender, Fred Hicks, an alleged
blgamlfit. Is also expected to plead guilty
that day.' Hicks Is the man whose New
York wife heard he had married a woman
in South Dakota and inserted blind ads In
a trade paper saying that his mother was
ill. Hicks fell into the trap and wrote
from here,, though he did not sign his
name. Along came Mrs. Hicks and ran
him down in Omaha.
He Is to plead to a charge of adultery
and will receive a jail sentence because the
Nebraska statute does not permit of a
prosecution for bigamy here when the of
fense was committed In another state.
The plea of guilty by Henry Is at least
unusual In this: His attorneys are willing
to sacrifice the advertising they might get
out of the trial for the benefit of their
client; They feol that he might get worse
and probably not less than lire, while the
county attorney on the other hand thinks
It uncertain that a heavier sentence would
result from a trial.
