NKIiRAPKA CITY. Neb., May 16. (Spe
cial.) W. J. Bryan spoke tonight litre on
tlii Initiative and refei endum and other
subjects. IIo said In part:
1 am hnre for thtce rcasonn. First, be
cause liiio to come to Nebraska City. It
was In my district wocn I was a member
of eoliRI OHM, and the people of till county
have been loyal fr:e:id.4 in all my -aiu-pHlgno.
1 migtit Justify my coming, tlieie
iore. on the gro.ind that 1 find a real
pleasure In coming. The second reason tor
coming is thai I cio.tlre to refute the cliaiKe.
tlai ban rjone ojt over tne country lo the
elicit I'Jl you are oppose ,J to f:co upeern

Ik' question. -l he action ot your county

by the itvwiipupem as lnoiuatlug that you

ing that I should use tor tile pi osculation

ing here ami s,eukin In a larger hull than
tli court house I prove that loose who ue

Trie third reason tor tny coming is that too

rn event, mv sneaking here discuses thu
character of tne opposition to the Initiative J
and referendum, and I can use tins uiiempv
to prevent discussion as a feM.
I could ask nothing belter than the oppon
ents of the initiative and referendum aiiould
do everywhere what they have done here,
ror nothing Would add such Impetus to our
cause as the attempt on the psrt of our
opponents to prevent the discussion of the
suoject. Free speech lies at tne foundation
of f ri gavernniciit, and lie who opposes
free speech betrays the spirit of the despot,
even If he Is powerless to enforce tliu de
spotism he favors.
Freedom of speech can be defended from
every standpoint. The mind must he free
10 tnlnk and the tongue must be free to
speak If there Is to be Intellectual progress,
'the evils that may follow from erroneous
argument are Infinitely less than the evils
IhHt follow from the supperssio.i of lhJug.it.
And then, any evils that may follow from
free sicch are sure to be corrected, while
the evils that follow from the suppres
sion of thought are much more difficult to
" Freedom of f-peeth Is necessary to politi
cal nrocress. Jolferson. the greatest of
democrats, was. a most devoted champion
of free speech, and Lincoln, who quoted
Jefferson as much a si any democrat ever
Moral nriiirss depends also upon

allowed to cry out against what It be
lieves to be wrong, and those who ate '
i prosed to free sp-reh confess that they are
not prepaied to def-nd the thins for whloli i
they stand. The Initiative and referendum
are advocated because they give the ieople
a chance to express thernrelve on every
question, and those who stand back of the
liquor traffic are very short-sighted when
they oppose the Initiative and referendum.
Thrv sav thev are afraid that if the In
itiative and referendum are Incorporated in
our organic law by a constitutional amend
ment the question of county option will be

l.ct us analyse their position. When they
arc opposed to the sumblsslon of the in
itiative and referendum tney admit that
thy are afraid that if submitted It wouid
be adopted, and that means that they are
not willing that we shall have a local
machinery In this state by which the peo
ple mav express themselves on a public
question. The attitude of the saloon Inter
ests is, thererore, tnat tney are so opposed
to county option that they are not willing
that the people shall have the right to
vote upon this question or any other ques
tion; In other words, they would defeat
popular government as It Is expressed In
the Initiative nnd referendum rather than
have the county option question submitted
to a vote, and some of them in this county
go so far as to oppose the public discussion
of the initiative and referendum for fear
that reforms may b adopted, and that
from its adoption the question of county
option may be submitted to the people.
They thus make the liquor question a
paramount Issue, for when they make It a
determining Issue with themselves thev

It ns a question that must be settled.
y As to Spec-till Session.
It Is not certain yet whether a special
session of the legislature will bo called, but
I. It is not called it is because the liquor
interests are opposed- to the Initiative, and
referendum. If the liquor Interests can
control enough senators to prevent the
submission of the question, not wlthstand
ItiK the fact that the democratic governor
favors the Initiative and referendum not
withstanding the fact that a majority of
the democratic senators and representatives
ravor the initiative and referendum, and
noiwunsianaing the raet that an over
whelming majority of the democrats of the
state favor It. and a largo majority of
republicans alsr if this Is the condition
then it would seem that wo must settle
the liquor question at once whether we
want to or not. Ir. order that we may take
up other questions the consideration of
w 1 Ich Is now obstructed by the lienor
Interests. The liquor Interests arc responsl
hie for the forcing of the county option
question into ine arena ot politics, and
they have only themselves to blame for
the results that shall follow the growing

of medical treatment they shall employ?

SOUTH DAKOTA EMPLOYERS'
LIABILITY LAW VOID
Cfrrnlt C'onrt of Anneals Kinds
Serious Defect In the
SIOUX FALLS. S. D.. May R-(Special.)
The United States circuit court of ap
peals, sitting In the Eighth circuit, has de
clared unconstitutional the employers' lia
bility law enacted by the South Dakota
legislature at its 1907 session and which was
approved February 20, 19fr7. The federal cir
cuit court of appeals finds a serious de
fect In the law, which may also exist In
the employers' liability laws of other states
which have not yet been compelled to run
the gauntlet of the courts.
The deeison of the federal circuit court
of appeals states that "the fourteenth
amendment to the constitution of the
United States forbids any state to 'deny to
any person within its Jurisdiction the equal
protection of the laws.' " The error of the
South Dakota legislature was In making
the employers' liability law apply to com
mon carriers in general Instead of limiting
it to railway .companies. The decision says;
"Under, thin .statute if a bookkeeper or
any other servant of a common carrier who
is engaged In the performance of clerical
duties In Its general offices and such a
servant of a merchant or manufacturer
engaged in the same occupatn under the
same circumstances, are each Injured by
the negligence of a fellow servant the com
mon carrier is liable fer the damages his
servant sustained, whila the merchant or
manufacturer Is exempt from any liability
for the damage which his employe suffered."
