edge the knowledge that can only come as
result of the highest education. From
railways to factories no great Industrial
concern can now a lays be carried on save by
the aid of a swarm ot men who have re
ceived a high technical education In chem
istry, in engineering, in electricity, in one
or more of scores of special subjects. The
big business man, the big railway man,
does not ask college-trained experts to tell
him how to run his business; but he does
ask numbers of them each to give him ex
pert 'advice and aid on some one point In
dispensable to his business. He finds this
man usually in some graduate of a techni
cal school or college1 In which he has been
trained for his life work.
Real Function of Experts.
"In Just the same way the farmers should
benefit by tho advice of .the technical men
Who have been trained In phases of the
very work the farmer does. I am not now
speaking of the man who has' had an
ordinary general training, whether In
school or college. While there should un
doubtedly be such a training as a founds-!
tlon (the extent differing according to tho
,klnd of wbrk'eaclv'bby Intends to do as a
roanV -lt is nevertheless true that our
educational system should more and more
be turned In the direction of educating men
tow aids, and not away from, the farm and
the shop. - During the las: half century
we have begun to develop ' a system cf '
agricultural education at once practical and
scientific, and we must go on developing
it. But, after developing it, it must be
utd. The rich man who spends a fortune
upon a fancy farm, with entir Indiffer
ence to cost, does not do much good to
farming; but, on the other, hand. Just as
little is done by the working farmer who
stolidly refuses to profit by the knowledge
of the day; 'who treats any effort ut im
provement as absurd on Its face, refuses
to countenance what he regards as new
fangled Ideas and contrivances, and Jeers
at all 'book farming.' I wish I could take
representatives of this type of farmer
dOT n to Long Island, where I live, to have
them see what has been done, not as
philanthropy; but as a plain business
proposition, by men connected . with th
Long Island railroad, who believe it pays
to encourage the development of farms
jakmg the line of that railway. They have
put practical men in charge of exp.-ri-;mental
farms, cultivating them intensively
and using the best modern methods, not
only in raising crops, but in securing the
best market for the crops when raised
The growth has been astounding, and land
only fifty miles from New York, which
aunng our entire national lifetime has
been treated as worthless, has within the
'"i inree or lour years been proved to
potsesa a really blgli value.
Two Successful Farmers.
"The farmer, however, must not only
make his land pay, but he must make
country life Interesting for himself and for
his wife and his sons and daughters. Our
people as a whole -should realize the in
finite' possibilities of life in the country;
aiid every effort should be made to make
these possibilities more possible. From the
beginning of time It has been the man
raited la the country and usually the man
born In the country who has been most
spt to render the services which every na
tlon most needs. Turning to the list of
American statesmen. It Is extraordinary to
see how large a proportion started as
farm boys. But it is rather sad to see
that in recent years most of thes same
boys hav ended their live a men living
"it often happens that the good conditions
of the past call be regained, not by going
back, but by going forward. We cannot
recreate what is dead; we cannot stop the
march of events, but we can direct this
march, and out of the new conditions de
velop something better than the past knew
Henry Clay was a farmer, who lived and
died In the country; Washington was
farmer, who lived and died in the country
and we of this nation ought to mak It
our business to see that the conditions are
made such that farm life In the future
shuli nut enly develop men of the stamp
of Washington and Henry Cloy, but shall
be so attractive that thes men may con
tipue. as farmers; for remember that Wash

themselves thut the farmer can hav
great career and yet end his life as
farmer; so that the city man will look' for
ward to living in the country rather than
the country man living in the city.
Organisation for Farmers.
"Farmers should learn bow to combine
effectively, as has been don In Industry
I am particularly glad to apeak to th
Grange, for I heartily believe In farmer:
organisations; and w should all welcome
every etep- liken towards an increasin
co-operstion among farmers. The Impor
tanc ot such movements cannot be over
estimated; and through such Intelligent
Joint, action It wll) be possible to improv
the market Just as much as the farm.
"Country life should be as attractive as
efty life, and the eountry people should In
stst- upon having their full representation
when It comes to dealing with all great
publlo questions. In other werds, country
folk should demand that they work on
equal terms with city folk In all such mat
ters. They should hav their share in the
memberships of commissions and councils;
In short, of all the organised bodies for lay
ing plans for great enterprises affecting all
the people. I am glad to see on such bodies
th namea that represent financial Inter
ests, but thos Interests should not have
the right-of-way. and in all enterprises and
movements in which the social oondltlon of
the country Is Involved, the agricultural
country the open country should be as
well represented as the city. The man of
the open country Is spt to have certain
qualities which the city man has lost
These qualities offset those which the city
man has and he himself ha not. The two
should be put on equal terms, and the
country talent be given the same opportun
ity as the city talent to express Itself and
to contribute to the welfare of th world
in which we live.
Social Crater 1st Country.
"The country church should be made a
true social center, alive to every need of
the community, standing for a broad Indi
vidual outlook and development, taking the
lead in work and in recreation, caring more
tor conduct than for dogma, more for eth
ical, spiritual, practical hetterment than
for merely formal piety. Th country fsJr
offers far greater possibilities for continu
ous and healthy usefulness than It at pres
ent affords. The country school should be
made a vital center, for economic, social
and educational co-operation; it is naturally
fitted to be such a center for those engaged
In commercial farming, for those who live
on and by the small farms they themselves
own. The problem of the farm Is really
the problem of the family that lives on the
farm. On all these questions there Is need
of Intelligent study, such as marks the
books of Prof. Bailey ot . Cornell and of
Horace Plunkett's book on the 'Rural Life
Problems of the United States.'
"One feature of the problem should be
recognised by " the farmer at one, and
an effort mad to deal with It It Is our
duty and our business to consider th
farm laborer exactly as we consider the
farmer. No country life can be. satisfac
tory when th owners of farms tend, for
whatever reason, to go away to live in
oltles instead of working their farms; and,
moreover. It cannot to really satisfactory
when the labor 'system is so managed that
there is for part of the year a demand for
labor which cannot be met, and during an
other part pf the year no demand for labor
at all, ao that the farmers tend to rely
on migratory laborers who come out to
work in the country with no permanent in
terest in it and with .no prospect of steady
employment. It is exceedingly difficult to
make a good citlxen out of a man who
can't count upon some steadiness and con
tinuity in the work which, mean to him
a livelihood. . Economic conditions on the
farm In variety and kind of crop grow
ing, especially distributed in time, and
housing for the menmust be so shaped
as to render it possible for the man who
labors for the farmer to be steadily em
ployed under conditions which foster his
self-respect and tend for his .development.
The Farmer's "Wife.
"Abovev all, the' conditions of farm life
must always be shaped with a view to
the welfare of the farmer's wife and th
farm laborer's wife, quite ss much as to
the welfare of the farmer and farm laborer.
To have the woman a mere drudge is at
least as bad as to have the man a mere
drudge. It Is every, whit as Important
to Introduce new machines to economise
her labor within the house as it is to in
troduce machinery to.incres the effective
ness of his labor outside the house. I
haven't the slightest sympathy with any
movement which looks to excusing men
and women fur the non-performance of
duty and fixes attention only on rights
and not duties. The woman wso shirks
her duty as a housewife, as mother, is a
contemptible creature; Just as the corre
sponding man is a contemptible creature.
But th welfare of the women is even
more Important than the welfare of th
man; for th mother is the real atlas,
who bears aloft in her strong snd tender
arms the destiny of the world. She de
serves honor and consideration sucb As no
man should reoelve. She forfeits all claim
to this honor and .' consideration If she
shirks her duties. But th average Amer
ican woman does not shirk them; snd It
a matter of the highest obligation for
s to see thst they are performed under
conditions which make for her welfare and
happiness and for the welfare and happi

It will only take a few. days to complete

Governor Shallenberger made the fol
lowing statement at Lincoln last night
'Reports from ths primary held August
18 last ar coinipg in very slowly. Today
with forty-eight counties reported ofti
daily to the secretary of stale, and tele
graphic reports from met other forty-four
counties, the showing la that Mayor Dahl
man leads me by seventy-two votes in a
contest where about 5,000 .votes were

ernor. Ordinarily as son as the ballots
of the. counties ar reported officially,
although the majority for Mayor Dahl
man, If one Is shown, should be but one
vote, I would then Immediately conced
his nomination so far as I am concerned.
But this 1 not an ordinary primary. It
haa been a .most extraordinary primary,
in that the voters Cf one party have tried
to nominate a candidate for governor for
botn th republicans and democrats.
"At th primary election held two year
ago ther wer a little mnr than U.000
vote cast for th democratic and repub
lican candidate for governor. At the
primary held last week, as near ss can be
ascertained without the official canvass,
about M.OUO were cnt for the candidates
tor governor on the democratic and re
publican tickets, practically th tame
number of votes being cast fur these offices
at each primary. '
"but in th IM prlruSjiy lbs three demst.
cralla candidates received SJ.677 votes In
the democratic primary and Governor Shel
don, without any contest whatever In his
party, received M.2S2 In the republican
primary. This shows that In the 1910
primary the total of votes cast I prae
tloally th same as that of 1908, but a
great body of republican voter moved over
to the democratic column in order to de
termine who th democratic candidate
Realloaa Vote Other Ticket.
"About (4,000 votes have been cast In the
democratlo columns in 1910 and something
like 13,000 were cast In the republican col
umn at the same primary. This shews that
more than S0.O0O republicans voted as demo
crats this year who voted as republicans
In 1908. The Berge and Shallenberger vote
of two years sgo amounted to about, 22,000
votes. Adding to this the few thousand
democrats who voted with me this time be
cause they felt I was entitled to a nomina
tion and the thousand or mote republicans
who voted for we out of compliment makes
sufficient to preserve party Integrity, but
suddenly the liquor question has become
th paramount Issue In Neiraska, to the
exclusion of anything else, and Just as
many men will do almost anything in secret
to obtain liquor when denied the opportun
ity to secure it Ugeally, so 20,000 voters
secretly deserted the republican party,
which bad declared for county prohibition,
and crept over into the democratic column
In the attempt to nominate a democratlo
candidate pledged against th thing their
party is pledged for.
Will Not Icnore Primary.
"In a time ilk this th weak provisions
of the present law supposed to protect the
democratic party in its right to nominate
its -own candidate proved a broken reed.
Many have besought me to Ignore this pri
mary as not binding upon democrats and to
become an independent candidate before the
voters, but I am on who believes that
when I accepted the term of battl under
which this political warfare has been
waged, as a good soldier, I should abide by
the results. I bow to the law of the land
which has mad this situ tlon possible and
hold sacred th oath I took to accept th
' verdict of th primary, but I do not admit
yet that I am beaten and shall not do so
until th final canvass is made. If I am
defeated at this time I shall do all that I
can in my humble way as a soldier In th
ranks towards th support of th demo-.
cratlo candidate and to keep Intact th
splendid fighting forces of the democrats
in Nebraska. I have many loyal friends
as candidates upon the ticket and, although
I feel that I have been beaten by repub
licans In a democratlo primary, my loyhlty
to the party for all that it has done for
me in the past and to the friends over th
state who have supported me mskes my
own personal defeat of little moment to me.
Why M Asks Reeount.
"There Is one thing I have determined,
after a great deal Qf consideration, that I '
owe to the democrats of Nebraska. Bpaclal
interests have fought me all over th stat
and in a democratlo primary may hav
succeeded In defeating the democratlo gov
ernor with republican votes. It has been
-reported to me from several counties and
in various precinct that republican voters
were not sasltsfled with- voting the demo
cratic ticket by thousands and thus con
trolling the democratlo primary, but they
also voted for republicans for other offloes
and thus sought to determine the nomina
tion of candidates of their own party as
weU as thos In th democratic column. -
'I shall ask for a recount of th bal
lots cast for governor on th democratlo
ticket in counties where report of these
erroneous ballots have been- made to, me,
and find out If I can. If enough ot this
was dons to determine the result, of the pri
mary. Many democrats from over the
state havs demanded that I ask for this
recount, ' and I am the only person under
the law who can secur this action. .This
is th only protection the democratic party
has from republican invasion and It is due
to the democratlo party for ma to discover
If possible if even, th frail protection af
forded by the present primary law has been
denied to me In a sufficient number of
eases to determine, the result. If th re
count shows Mayor Dahlman a. victor on
th faee of the returns I will accept the
result in ths best of spirit, because JNhold
that on should not engage In. a political
warfare who cannot stand the sting of de-
teat and still preserve his food nature. -
Better for Both.
I believe, in view of the very extraordi
nary way in which this primary was cap
tured by ths republicans, both in the demo
cratic column as well as their own, it will
be better for the candidate of the demo
cratic party, no matter whom he shall be,
