The governor said:

It waa a territory and lifted It into state

During the late year of our nation'
prosperity under the republican party
(he prlcea of farm lands have been going
upward until they have doubled and
trebled In value, and the product of the
farms and of the cattle range have o
multiplied In their soiling price that
they have gone beyond anything here
tofore known in the history of the state.
We are chiefly an agricultural people,
ana under republican administrations we
have reached an era of financial pros
perity that outmeasures all comparisons.
This prosperity in Nebraska has kept
moving step by ten with the develop
ment Of the Industries, and resources of .
the country at large and the greatest
period of this advancement has been "
reached under the administration of our
most excellent president William II.
No political organisation In any coun
try can point to such a record of
achievements during the last fifty years

From Unooln- to Garfield, nd from
Osrfleld to MoKlnley, and from M
Klnley to Taft, w can etand upon out

M. Taft as president, during the laat
congraes, haa brought forth more !erts--fntlon
for the benefit of the people than
did any other president during the same .
period of time during the lt quarter of
a century. By his Impartial enforce

century many of our people have advo

ed In this direction they have failed In
accomplishment; but the wisdom and
Insistency of President Taft has made
the postal savings banks a reality. By
his persuasion congress has paed a def

unquestioned power of setting apart Um

Not yet satisfied with its record, It made

of ths republic haa the congress ot the
United 8tatas In a singls session enacted

a did th republican eoogres just ad
journed. Two years ago President Taft
was elected on the pledge that h with a
republican congress would give the people
, conservation law which would legalise and
I validate th Roovelt policy of conserving
J pature' resources- Th promts waa kept
laud a conservation bill ass passed which
board appointed for 4h purpose of seek
ing Information and making recom
mendations mi to tariff amendments and
revisions. At the solicitation of our
president the last aongress made a lib
eral appropriation for such purpose, and
the president has already appointed a
board competent and .qualified to go on
with this work of tariff Investigation.
During his administration the general
tariff law ha been revised by a repub
lican eongress and Is now being tested
before the Amerioan people by aotual
experience. It may be true that no tar
iff law can be perfect in the sense of
bringing the best result te every par
ticular Individual or to each particular
locality or to each Individual Interest,
In a nation of to.000.0u0 of people, cov
ering ao vast an area. Whose varied In
dustries are affected ty ollmate, and
produot of the soli and factories, and
by transportation facilities, and where
these vast peoples are represented In the
senate and house of representatives by
abotu five hundred Individual minds and
volcea. there must be concession and
compromises. The law which wa en
acted had the support of the majority
of these representatives. It Is the law of
the land until it shall be changed In the
regular waa, . . . .
During the first eleven month of ex
perience under, the present tariff .law
the Imports have exceeded those of any
previous period of like extent In the sum
of tU4.O0u.O00, 000. More than 49 per Cent
of these imports have come In under the
present tariff law, free of duty.- The
customs receipts during the same eleven
month,, under the operation of the tar
iff law, were .102,S2J,161, which have not
been equalled or exceeded during a like
period of time for over thirteen years.
It also apears from aotual experience
that the gross Importations on which the
tariff has been reduced under the pres
ent tariff law exceeds those on which
the tariff duty haa been Increased In the
ratio of sis) to- on. As a republican
party, be it remembered, we are pro
tectionists. We dq not have to apolo
gise to any maji or to any nation for
that belief. On this doctrine we build
our faith on1 the teachings of the pagea
of our eountry'a history.
The republican party ha never failed
except when it faltered. Ita long ca
reer of victory ha been by boldly meet
ing each question as It arose; by fac
ing with courage every danger that
croased It path, while its fearlessr.es
of consequence and it determination
to be true to the' principle which
brought the party Into existence, have

''Six years ago President Roosevelt bfcgan
a heroie struggle for a law to regulate the
common carriers engaged In interstate bust'
ness. It was his plan to so control them
that the publlo might have equal and
reasonable rates and service. Th struggle
waa a war ot giant forces. Th opposition
to hi plaa took It stand on tha ground
that th federal government wa without
power under th constitution to Interfei
wlh th business of corporations chartered
by th stat. Th Roosevelt forces won
the battl and pasasd th law. But aald
from settling beyond dispute the power ot
th government to regulat the railroad, j
th law failed to bring full and substantial
relief to the public. In other words, It es
tablshed the power, but it did not provide
for its full exercise. It gave the Interstate
Commerce commission a very limited juris
diction within which to act. So it hap
pened that our last platform promised to
amend th Roosevelt statut so that - the
full power of the government asserted and
established by Roosevelt might be fully ex
ercised. President and Congress.
"I wish every cltisen, and especially every
Republican, would read again the message
of President Taft to the last congress on
this subject. He called on Congresa to keep
the faith. After several months ot delay
and debate th faith waa kept. A law wa
passed which give every man and every
shipper and every community the right
and ths power to enforce it, to have im
partial and reasonable rates and service.
Under this law the eonmton ha th
power to investigate ratea on It own ini
tiative, not waiting for a complaint to be
filed. Undar thla law no increase ot rates
pan go into effect for nln month without
tb consent of th commission, which is
Charged with th duty of ascertaining and
determining their justice and equity. Un
der this-law tb government I absolute
master of all tb transportation ratea ef
fecting every man, woman and child in the
United State. Not only that, it brings the
telephone and telegraph companiea within
the Jurisdiction and subject ts the control
and regulatloln ot the government. The
taw la th largest forward atep ever taken
y any government to protect public rights
and to promote the publlo welfare.
"My friends, these laws were all passed
during th closing daya of congress. Tha
delay waa not the fault of the president
Hla messagea recommending them had been
before Congresa for months. Congresa heal.
tated and debated for almost seven months
before a single one of these great measures
was Bent" to the White House for approval.
How well I recall the debates on that pro
vision of the law relating to the power of
the government to prevent increased rates
going Into effect. While we were debating
it, while we wer talking about It, while
a were sending out great headline for
our constituents to resd, the raUroada were
diligently proceeding to forestall the new
law by Increasing the rales under the old
law. They failed. Not because congress
acted nor because congress talked, but be
cause the president stopped the increase by
a writ of injunction, it la good to know
that the people have today In the White
House a man who acta while others talk.
"Republicans, I have only begun to tell
the story of our record for achievement.
I leave the rest for you to relate. Let the
people know the truth and the result will
take vara of Itself. With a clear conscience
and good courage let the fight continue tu
niake good laws better and a free govern
ment freer. Let us keep our faces to the
front. The march is forward. There Is no
pUte in the Republican column fur the ic
actlonary or the laggard or the stand
backer. The right of men are paramount.
Th tar of bop and courage and good
cheer lights the path.
"The president leads the way. He la
honest and patriotic, a steadfast and earn-
cut friend of all th people, progressive
and faithful public servsnt. Let us cloaa
th ranka In tila auport. Thla l not the
year to hesitate or 'to surrender. Thla la
the year to fight and to conquer."
