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 nnd would pi event the discussion of a pub Ik' question. -l he action ot your county , commissioners In relusing to ado me to t hpeak lu the eouit house has been consulted by the itvwiipupem as lnoiuatlug that you aic so opiobd to my position on the Initia tive and referendum tnat you are not will ing that I should use tor tile pi osculation of niv vie toe court house, wlncii Uhiiailv eiKjii for public nieetlims. Hy com ing here ami s,eukin In a larger hull than tli court house I prove that loose who ue slre to discuss a pcndlnk Uestio!i will bo accordrvt a hearing In jour city and county. Trie third reason tor tny coming is that too . , fa..t fl.ot mn OttftlOlt WHS HindO tO 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 V correct. " 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 lis., was speech. Moral nriiirss depends also upon ib.m of Mcwh. The ronnlenre must he 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 presented. Proceeds tu Annlrsla 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 I1 ! mini exrieet that others will hlso reenffnl,. 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 noignaiion against tne impudence, the In solence and the sordtdncss of the liquor interests. he will he a cardldate. and hns been elected I on a dry ticket.

SOUTH DAKOTA EMPLOYERS' LIABILITY LAW VOID Cfrrnlt C'onrt of Anneals Kinds Serious Defect In the Htntate. " 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." .San mill an Boat. .
