'LINCOLN. Oct. 23. (Special. )Not only
have the democratic employes of the state
been called upon to come across with a
portion of their wares to be spent by the
democratic state committee In converting
republicans to the democratic ticket under
the guise of a nonpartisan judiciary, but
the men themselves are now compelled to
Bet out and hustle.
Lr Matthews, thief , clerk In the office
of ."Javernr Shallenberger, has been away

i Intimate friends would hardly recognize
I hlrnahould he return suddenly.
The records I nthe office of the state
I audi tie show that Mr. Matthews drew his
I warrant for his September salary, but has
I not been here to draw any since. He Is
i said to be on a vacation by the people In
the governor's office or a member of his
force, but as a matter of fact the last
heard from Mr. Matthews was at Colum
I bus,-jerking-like a beaver In the demo-
f cratlc headquarters.
It w a. sine work that Mr. Matthews did
. In the democratic headquarters a year ago
that ogt htm his job with the governor
and It Is the same kind of work that Is
holding his job for him now.
Whether Governor Shallenberger will pay
Mr. Matthews his monthly stipend of $125
out of state funds while he Is working
for the democratio state committee Is
question about which ( here Is little doubt
There Is no doubt that the chief clerk will

5 No Prohibition Jadaea.
H I. Staple, candidate for supreme judge,
has notified Secretary of State Junkln that
he'.declines the nomination at the hands of
the: prohibition party and asks that his
name be left off the oflcial ballot. As the
deellnatlon of A. O. Wolfenbarger, another
prohibition candidate, had already been
received, this leaves the prohibitionists to
: vols for the candidates of some other party
for-Bupreme Judge. Secretary Junkln se,nt
outi letters this afternoon to the various

- School Children Exposed.
Parents of children attending the Everett

One In leers.
BROKEN BOW. Neb.. Oct. 23.-(Spe-clal.)
During the latter part of the
campaign, the all absorbing toplo seems to
be county division. In all parts of the
county the subject Is being studied and
discussed with an earnestness never be
fore displayed. The people are much In
terested In the auditor's report of the
county bonds that the various counties of
Nebraska have had since the organization
of the state. It has been demonstrated
that not a county as small as the proposed
couny of Higglns has ever escaped without
bonds. Higglns Is the name of one of the
proposed new counties to be set off from
Custer at the coming election. Many who
have made a study of the question are
urftng that county division will greatly
Increase the taxes and farmers living at a
distance from the towns, which expect
to become county seats will, as a rule,
strongly oppose division.
Another feature they are seriously con
sidering Is th salailes of four sets of
county officers and the additional expense
of maintaining four counties, which will
cost from $16,000 to $20,000 more under
division than it does now. Also the
transcribing of the records and the build
ing of new court houses Is another addi
tional expense; this Item alone figuring
up to over $100,000.
Custer county has never been bonded and
It looks as If It was Impossible to get
along without bonds In each of the new
counties. If division carries. Election day
will probably see one of the hottest county
fights ever held In the state.

are not necessarily the same:
We, the undersigned German societies of
Nebraska, Oiu ou welcome. With six
separate organizations, and a membership
of over 3,uuu, we consider ourselves to be
representative of the many thousands oi
German-Americans of tula state, and as
such proclaim our ardent support of the
cause of true temperance, temperance not
only In drink, but temperance in thought,
speech and action, and temperance also in
relation to proposed restrictions of personal
we welcome you as co-workers In the
cause of temperance, and know that people
of your superior intelligence and sincerity
will not confound true temperance
political prohibition and asceticism. While
we German-Americans preach and practice
temperance, we are opposed to legislative
acts, and to agitation tor legislative acts,
attempting to prescribe undue restrictions
of Individual freedom In personal habits.
We point with pride to a lecent editorial
In Collier's as follows: "Various young
men have asked why we think the study
of German so important. The reason is,
that the Germans are leaders In many
very important departments of modern
thought, and much of the most valuable
contemporary material In science, history,
philosophy and economics is accessible only
to those able to read the German lan
guage." We know you do not belong to, or uphold,
those who in their misguided seal have
caused Innocent children, too small to
think or act for themselves, to march In
so-called temperance but In reality prohi

We know you will gladly avail yourselves
of thla assistance to the good cause, and
will appoint a time and place where a
committee of our ladles may wait upon you
to arrange for the details of owr proposal.
You will be glad, we feel confident, to ac
cept this opportunity to Inform the public
that temperance means moderation, as
defined In our dictionaries, while political
prohibition Is a mere form of Intolerance,
the antithesis of Christian doctrine.
We welcome you to Nebraska, a state
blessed with what Is generally conceded
to be one of the best license laws In the
United States; a law which the misguided
efforts of the prohibitionists would dis
place with a prohibition statute, and would
thus exchange the well regulated, legal
sale for the unregulated surreptitious
traffic, which In all prohibition territory
haa proven so disastrous to real temperance
and good morals.
We know that you are too Intelligent to
endorse such prohibition fallacies, which
have never yet and never will promote
the cause of true temperance, the cardinal
virtue to whose support you are pledged.
Ws welcome you again, with our con
fidence that your deliberations while In
our midst will be guided by wisdom and
true Christian temperate thought, and that
ymi will reach no conclusions that would
necessitate a change of the name of your
glorious Institution to "Prohibition I'nlon."

Wall Street Journal.
Within the last year two developments
have set people thinking about the future
of cur meat supplies. One of these events
Is the rapidly advancing price of live stock
at home, owing largely to the Induction In
the supply of cattle and swine. The other
Is the advent on a large scale of American

In the prices of this class of foodstuffs
has brought up the question of the possi
bility of the United States changing from
an exporting to an Importing country In
the world's meat trade.
Stranger things have come to pass. It
would, not be surprising If within a half
decade we were to find our large meat
trusts in Argentina delivering carcasses of
refrigerated beef from that country at
the ports of the I'nlted 8tates. Ons reason
for such a possibility lies la the rapid
