According to the speakers, among whom
was Charles O. Whedon of Lincoln, there
were aming them no rebels agalnut the ad

stirring applause. His Jest in referring to

fcbrrhart for loniiuiulan.
Governor Kberhart was guest and prin
cipal speaker. His remarks dealt chiefly
with the tariff question, In an argument
that It was an utter impossibility for any
body of legislators In a three months'
session to revise a bill containing a.Oid
upon a slashing of its rates and a curtail
ing of the revenue from It.
"The country was never more prosperous
than It is at this time," be said. "It Is the
republican party that has accomplished the
gains for the country. The nation Is the
foremost one on earth. It is respected,
feared and emulated by all the other na
tions of the globe. The republican party
has made It so."
Touching upon the question of the pro
posed Initiative and referendum plank for
the democratic forces' of the state, Mr
Webster declared the liquor question was
not a political one.
"The liquor subject is properly of no con
cern to the president, the party, to con
gress nor to state government. It Is a
police question purely. It should no more
be incorporated in a doctrine of a party
than a plank providing for the eradication
of typhoid fever."
Spirit of Victory.
Victor Rosewater, In a brief address,
mentioned the successes of republican ad
ministrations In Omaha. He Jocularly in
formed the gueat of honor that though the
latter had seen a democratic mayor In
office on his previous visit here twenty
ytars ago and was seated near another
one on this occasion, the Intervening
twenty years had been terms of republican
officials. The speaker then remarked that
iho spirit of lctory was present In the
N J. Richardson of Washington, accom
panied him. President Taft returned to
Situation In C'onarress.
The president said:
"Vou have been doubtless advised by your
newspapers that there Is certain legisla
tion pending In congress In which the ad
ministration has a very intense Interest,
growing out of the fact that It was
promised by the platform of the republican
party and has been recommended by the
president to congress and I feel as if it
might not be without some use for m to
say what the condition of the legislation Is
and what the prospect Is of its passage.
"In the first place, the bill granting state
hood to New Mexico and Arizona passed
the house some months ago, but It Is still
pending In the senate. Objection was made
to the bill as It passed the house In regard
to certain provisions as to elections which
disfranchised Mexicans not speaking Eng
lish, who had theretofore by reason of
length of residence, acquired under previous
laws the right of suffrage. There Is some
difference, too, between the houses as to the
provisions made In respect to the public
lands and the payments of the debts of th
"There Is a hesitation oh the part of the
republicans In the senate to pass a bill
which Is so likely to add four democrats
to the senate, or If not democrats, republi
cans of that radical type that are entirely
out of sympathy with the more conserva
tive notions of the east. ' Still there Is a
promise in the platform, distinct and clear,
that this bill shall pass and I am very
anxious that the party shall meet Its ob
ligations in this regard, and enact the nec
essary legislation. I do not think that I
shall be disappointed.
against private oneis. the Lnited Slates
may enforct the conditions against the
slate and forfeit all the rights of the pil-
ate owner and of the state and restore the
land to the I'nlted States. There ought
to be a specific provision providing thai
the I'nlted states may sue the siste for
forfeiture and also that the executive shall
have the tight to declare a forfeiture.
"It seems to me that in this wise the
t'ntted Plates may retain effective control
over the disposition of the land and at the
same time enable the legislature or the
executive of the state, presumably more
familiar with local conditions, to fix the
details on the ground In accordance with
local necessity. It Is quite possible, how
ever, that these other conservation bills
will go over to the next session, but the
one ratifying the existing withdrawals and
granting power to withdrawing In future
should certainly pass.
"There Is ponding also a bill authorizing
the Issue of $10,000,000 of bonds with which
to continue the construction of irrigation
plants already begun by the reclamation
service, the bonds to be redeemed out of
the proceeds of the sale of public lands
and ths water rent collected from those
who enjoy the benefit of the Irrigation
This certainly ought to pass at this ses
slon because the number of people depend

projects Is sufficiently .large to call for

"Another act Is the so called 'Injunction
act.' There are three bills ponding
carry out the platform. In different forms
they all provide that an injunction Issued
without notice shall not be of effect for
more than seven days, unless within that
time actual notice Is given and a hearing
had, when, of course, the court will make
such order as It may be advised.
"It further provides that no restraining

Charles O. Whedon outlined an argument
for party solidarity, contending that what
ever differences of opinion might be enter
tained by individuals, the tariff law and
olhr undertakings of the party were es
sentially right. "The party should work
hand in hand," he declared. "There should
be no rifts In the ranks at tlrms of action.
I believe In the right to criticise. I also
believe with all Its apparent grounds for
scrutiny and criiicism the tariff law Is
the best that could be evolved. It will be
an 1U6 at the coming election, November
7, and It should be upheld by the united
force of the party that brought It Into be
ins'." C. H. Aidtich of David City gave his at
tention to affairs of the state. He scath
ingly attacked W. J. Bryan's call for a
special session of the stale legislature.
"The republican party never had to call an
extra session to tamper and tinker with
any broken parts In lis platform," he said
He pointed out that an expenditure of

the state In the possibility of the extra:

"There is a condition of activity in the
governing forces of the country at this time
that promises great advancement," declared
Governor Kberhart. "Malefactors are be
ing hunted out and punished. Grafters are
being driven from power and a welcome
pi OKI ess Is being made toward purity ol
govsj nintnt lu every respect. At no time
in the history of the country was there
less graft than at present. Never before
wire grafters so vigorously prosecuted and
punished as at present."
So Urvuud fur Dissension.
From thai point tho speaker proceeded tt
bhow thai the political unrest attendant
upon the routing out of ills iu government
offers no ground for dissension in tile
party. If the tariff bills was not what the
people had expected in certain respects, he
said, the fsct u'lly served as a further Im
petus to the party to uphold its representa
tives and work fur further advancement of
"Is there any reason why, because Items
in the tariff bill prove diatasteful in cer
tain localities affected, the task of Us re
vision should be placed in the hands of a
party that has made utter and complete
failure of handling it In the past?" he
The governor then cited the example of
the Cleveland administration in foisting
upon the country a tariff bill which had
been prejudged a fuilure.
Concerning tiie policy of the administra
tion. Governor Kberhart declared that It Is
a republican principle to deal with bust
nets corporations solely upon the question
of their merits and thoroughly without re
gard fur their size.
"iieeame a corporation is big," he de
clared, "is no reason why It should be at
tacked. It a business institution pursues
fair, open methods toward its competitors
and the public, It should be given fair play
no matter how large or how small it may
be. If It conspires to defraud or tu tliroitle
competition and. to boost prices It should
be curbed and punished no matter how big
nor how small."
"But utter all," declared the speaker,
"good or bad government depends upon the
man. Send big-minded, strong-hearted,
good and clean men Into the seats of legis
lation and government and you will ha v.
I good government. It la not merely a qusj.
tion or party polity or the achievements
of the past."
