GREGORY COUNTY MAN
- UNABLE TO GET TRIAL
Governor Veeeer Asked to Act la
Case of James C. Langstrotn, Held
v. Murder Charge.
PIERRE, 8. D., Augk. 13. (Special.)
Fred Huston, U L, Loyd, J. D. Hacklcr
snd W. J. Hooper, were a party of Oregory
county people who were here last evening
for a conference with Governor Vessey In
regard to the case of James C. I.afigstrom,
a Oregory county cltisen, who is held In
Arkansas on a charge of murder. He waa
taken to that state by detectives, who
were hunting the murderer for a large re
ward which was offered, and who claim to
. have the evidence tq convict Langstrom of
It appears that the parents of .the ac
cused man, with a brother are living on
claim In Gregory county, and have asked
assistance. . The murder with which he Is
charged was committed in Arkansas on
Mijfcti 8, and the Gregory county people
claiOin Ithat Langstrom was at Dallas on the
evswJng of that day, and attended the Ma
sonic lodge at that time; that he was not
only at Dallas that day, but had been them
for several days before and after the date.
In June application was mut to Governor
Vessey for a requisition in regular form,
'and, as there was no request for an ap
pearance, the detectives went to Gregory
county, and secured their man, hurrying
him out of the state.
Since that time and up to yesterday the
Gregory county men claim that they have
had representatives ' In Arkansas at sev
eral times to testify for Lungstrom. but
have not been able to get his case before
the grand Jury, and they asked the as
sistance of the governor In helping to get
' In announcing my candidacy for the republican nomination
for governor, I wish to make a brief statement of my attitude rel
ative to matters of most public concern.
Clean GoTertraent Paramount
, While it is inevitable that new questions of pressing im
portance will arise from year to year, the issue of clean and pru
dent government I deem always to be paramount. Simply because
I was the zealous advocate of an issue of passing importance
would not entitle me to public confidence. It is not alone what I
stand for today, but what has been my attitude in the past that
should be the real measure of my value as a public servant.
Within the sphere of my limited influence, I have always con
tended for clean men and clean methods, and I firmly believe that
whatever beside may be essential that unless built on this foun
dation an enduring republio is hopeless.
Record in Public Life
I have been a resident of Nebraska nearly thirty-four years,
part of that time engaged in newspaper work and the remainder
in commercial pursuits. My office-holding record is confined to
two terms in the legislature in the house in 1889 and the senate
in 1905. In the session of 1889 I was fortunate in being permitted
to aid in accomplishing the defeat and downfall of the bejt organ
ised and most corrupt lobby with which the state was ever in
fested. I also prepared legislation that prevented exploitation
of the state saline lands. I prepared and introduced the bill pro
viding for the submission of an amendment to the constitution
creating an elective railway commission, which passed in the ses
sion of 1905. The adoption of this amendment, together with the
legislation enacted to give it effect, have worked a beneficent
reform felt in every department of our state government. I advo
cated and voted for an anti-pass bill in the same session. Though
not a member when passed, I advocated the primary law, believing
then and now that it is desirable not alone to bring the govern
ment near to the people, but what is of greater importance, to
awaken in the individual voter a keener sense of the responsi
bilities of citizenship. 1 While the law may not have realized in
full the anticipations of its most zealous advocates, yet I confi
dently believe that it is destined to be a tower of strength to good
Politics Subordinate to Efficiency
I have always affiliated with the republican party, whose
candidate I now aspire to be, but I firmly believe that the high
est partisan service is rendered by an honest effort to demon
strate that the party with which one affiliates is the best medium
through which to attain good government I do not believe la
making the public institutions havens for indigent politicians, or
auxiliaries of a political machine, but that they should be con
ducted on strictly prudent business lines, always with a view to
the welfare of the inmates. .
Position an Liquor Question
Personally I have never believed the adoption of county
option necessary to control the liquor traffic. The enactment of
this law, however, is purely a legislative function, with which
the executive has nothing to do until presented to him for his
approval or disapproval. If the people through their represen
tatives demanded this legislation, I should deem it my duty, if
governor, to approve. I do not construe the power of veto vested
in the chief executive to be a personal asset, but a discretionary
power necessary to vest in some one, to meet the requirements of
grave emergencies and possible invasions of the constitution.
To threaten in advance of its enactment the veto of this legisla
tion might consistently be supplemented by the threat to invoke
the pardoning power in behalf of every violator of the law, should
the veto be disregarded.
For Taft-Roosevelt Policies
I believe that President Taft is in full sympathy with the
policies of Mr. Roosevelt, and that his administration will merit
and receive general commendation. There has been no wiser
legislation in recent years than that creating a tariff commission,
giving assurance that future legislation will be based on a more
impartial, scientific and less sectional and partisan basis.
With this purely personal statement, I submit my candi
dacy. Should the people see fit to nominate and elect me gover
nor, I will devote to their service whatever of experience and
ability I may possess, animated by the sincere desire to admin
ister their affairs in a dignified, economical and business-like
manner. A. E. CADY. j

To the Voters of Nebraska:
On the Eve. of Primary Election to be
held Tuesday, August 16th, I desire to pub
licly express my most sincere thanks to tho
people of Nebraska for the cordial reception
and considerate treatment they have given
me everywhere I have been able to meet
With the canvas practically ended, hav
ing covered a large part of the State, I feel
positive the returns will show my nomina
tion by a substantial majority. I am not so
conceited as to believe this result will be be
cause of my efforts alone or because of my
ersonality, but because I represent that sav
ing, 6ober sense of the people which rebels
against the surrender of any more of their
constitutional liberties to the hysterical de
mand of that element whose zeal outstrips
its good sense.
The broad rights of all the people are
infinately greater and to be preferred very
seriously, as against the narrow conceptions
of morality of a fanatical minority that
woud make habits of living the test of citU
zenship and patriotism.
.This is a fight for principle and real
freedom against dogmatism and a passing
hallucination in politics. As the extremists
who believe they should be allowed to make
rules to govern the conduct of their neigh
bors are making a desperate struggle to con
trol in tlTe legislative districts, THE ONE
WAY to make sure of balking their designs
lies in my nomination and election. A mo
ment's consideration will convince you this
is a fair and a true statement of the situation.
Therefore, while extending my thanks'
and expressing my complete confidence in
victory, let me urge anew that only by vigi
lance and devotion can we make assurance
Be alert and active on Primary day I By
so doing ,there will be no doubt of the result.
No matter how you are registered, you
can vote for me, but be sure to VOTE ONLY
IN ONE COLUMN, or you will lose your

These positions have been large-
ly honorary and I feel highly hon- "- "Sr.OE
ored in having held them. I now ask the support of the party for the
nomination of State Treasurer. I realize that under the primary law
one has to make two campaigns; one to get the nomination and the
other to get elected. I know of no better way to do this than through
the press. Therefore, I am giving the press a small part of my life
work from a public standpoint, and I ask every voter who wants to
vote right to look me up and satisfy himself as to my ability and the
statements herein made. Should I be nominated and elected I will fill
the office to the best of my ability and for the Interests of the whole
state, and will thank you for your support
