Colonel Roosevelt) spent about five hours
here this evening and received tremendous
ovations wherever he went. He addressed
COP persona on one occasion from the
famous balcony of the old Monongahela
house, 1 where Clay, Lincoln, Garfield and
ether great figure In history spoke when
the nation was in deep trouble. He ad
dressed over S.000 persons In the exposition

their hats and yelled themselves hoarse for
several minutes as the guests ascended to

MADRID, Sept. 11 tSpeclal Cablegrams
One of the most curious developments In
the conflict between the Caiialcjaa govern
ment In Spain and the Vatican over the re
ligious orders is the reception given at the
Spaniah capital to the report that the queen
mother may show her disapprobation of the
tactics of the premier by abandoning the
country and taking up a permanent resi
dence in Austria.
While It Is thought extremely, improbable
that she will carry out this threat. If ever
it was made, there Is no attempt to dis
guise the belief In ministerial quarters that
Alfonso's mother is thereby responsible for
the special' bltlcraera of. . li)e-vUpute- and

amicable solution might be brought within
ran Re. From Die .outset. H is said, she
counseled the king to override the ministers
and to throw himself on the Bide of Car
dinal Merry Del Val. It was her pleadings,
says the same account, that caused the long
delay of Alfonso in signing the speech
from the throne at the opening of the
Cortes. . -
Canalejas Is described aa "more perplexed
by royal petticoat Influence than by all
the red hats In Europe." He charges Maria
Christina with mtsrepresentating him as a
politician ana seeking a willful provoca
tion to the Vatican instead of being, as he
claims to be, a strict constitutionalist.

Sermon by Cardinal Gibbons.
Cardinal Gibbons ot Baltimore, address
ing the Eucharlstic congress in this city
today spoke In part as follows:
"The Word was made flesh and dwelt
among us." John L
It is related In the life of the Patriarch
St. Anthony that on a certain occasion he
received a letter full of filial homage and
affection 'from Constantino the Great. And
the letter was signed not only by the em
peror, but also by his two sons, Constan
tlus and Constans.
The disciples of Antony,' learning that
their father was honored by a special epistle
from the emperor were naturally elated and
filled with -complacency, and the venerable
patriarch, observing the exultation depicted
on thslr faces, remarked to them: "You
rejoice, my sons, because the emperor ha
written to me. But should it not be a cause
of greater astonishment and llah to -you
that, our Eternal ' Father,'"" the King of
kings and Emperor of emperor, has writ
ten to us by His beloved Son, and has made
us partakers of the divine nature."
And now, dearly beloved, assembled as
we are In this htutorio church, and at the
close ot .a most . consoling and successful
Eucharlstic congress, and after partaking
of the banquet of the Lord, should we not
rejoice with Antony in the dignity and the
Inestimable blessings we possess aa mem
bers of the Christian family?
Christ Crowned Kins;.
It Is customary for a king on the occasion
of his coronation to bestow some titles
and distinctions on a number of his most
conspicuous and devoted subjects. During
these past days you have crowned Christ
the Lord as your king, as well as your high
priest. . You have always acknowledged and
proclaimed His spiritual sovereignty over
you. . He reigns now over your intellect and
reasoning powers, over your heart and af
fections, over your imagination and memory,
and over the whole empire of your soul.
And I need not tell you, enlightened Chris
tians, that the homage you pay to your
heavenly king, far from lessening, rather
strengthens and purifies, enobles and
consecrates your allegiance to your tem
poral rulexs.
And what does ennst give you In re
turn for your loyalty to him? . Ah, my
Brethren, no earthly monarch can re
ward his subjects as bountifully as the
King of Heaven rewards His servants. We
know from history how uncertain and ca
pricious are the smiles and promises of
temporal rulers. No man ever served his
sovereign with more unswerving fealty
than Cardinal Wolsey served Henry VIII.
But when he lost the king's favor, well
could he exclaim in the anguish of his
soul, "Had I served my God with halt the
xeal I have served my king, He would not
In mine old age have left me naked to
mine ermles."
What title then -does Christ confer on
you for your allegiance to Him? He
creates you the adopted children and heirs
of His Eternal Father.
St. Augustin in his Immortal work, "The
City ot God." says that many rulers and
generals of Pagan antiquity desired to im
press upon their subjects, as well as on
themselves, the conviction that they were
descended from the gods, so that the con
sciovsness and recognition of their divine
ort-n might stimulate them to heroic deeds
and command the admiration of their fol
lowers. Thus Alexander the Great, Aeneas,
Sclpio, Romulus, and Caesar were regarded
as the offspring of the gods.
Children of God.
But while their titles were Imaginary,
you. as St. Augustin remarks, ran with
truth lay claim to the title of children net
Indeed of healthen divinities, but of the one
true and living God. Children of the Most
High, when temptations assail you, when
the demon attempts to ensnarl you in his
tolls, say to him: "Begone, Satan, I am
a son of God; I was born for greater
things. I am destined for heaven. I have
dined with the King. I have come from
the banquet of the Lord. The blood of
Christ flow through my veins. Those lips
which are purpled with the blood of the
Iamb must not be polluted. I have been
nourished with the bread of angels, and
with God'a grace, I shall never degrade
myself by feeding on the husks of swine.
"And when he shall appear, we shall
be like to Him, for we shall see Him as
He Is." We shall be like Him In jus
tice and sanctity; like Him in
Immortality; like Him In eternal glory and
beatitude. A the atom, sparkling In the

conduct towards the children of Israel,

punishment than by the hope of reward.
You may search the Old Testament, from
Genesis to Maccabaeus, and you will very
rarely find the Hebrew people presuming
to call God their Father. They addressed
Him as their Iord and Master, their King,
their Ruler, their Judge, rnd Avenger.

printer that It may be published in the
biennial report of State Auditor Barton. The
total -asstssed value of all property In Ne
braska Is I412.13S.607, against S398,958,819 for
1909. The assessed value Is one-fifth of the
actual value.
While cattle show a slight falling off In
the total assessed valuation, hogs show an
Increase of approximately $1,000,000, due not
to the Increased number of hogs, but to
the Increased valuation. The value ot
horses has Increased nearly 12.000,000. Notes
secured by mortgages have Increased over
1700,000. Money on hand and deposit has
increased over $200,000. The assessed value
of automobiles has Increased almost M00.000,
or, In actual value, almost $2,000,000. The
value of carriages and wagons has de
creased over $2,000,000, Indicating that the
automobile Is coming into Its own. The
value - of wheat on hand Is worth over
$700,000 more than was the wheat on hand a
year ago. The value of oats Is slightly in
creased, while com and rye on hand In
value la below that on hand a year ago.
The value of potatoes on hand Is also very
much below the value of this product a
year ago. The value of poultry returned is
more than $100,000 greater than last year.
The patent right man evidently has been
working a little this year, because the value
of patent rights has been Increased $743. The

Omaha . republicans are getting ready to
scuttle the wilp and desert the flag." H
thought the charge of traitor against Omaha
republicans that was being circulated so
persistently by the democracy ought to be
branded as a malicious llbol.
"The democrats are trying to make us
believe that Omaha republicans are not at
true to their principles as republicans ar
In other parts of the state and that Omaha
people somehow are different than the rest
of the people of the state. It I ever lost
faith in your republicanism, I want to
apologize for it tonight after this display of
enthusiasm and loyalty. The reflection that
your republicanism Is only ot the selfish,
sordid kind, that it is warped and controlled
by your local personal Interests, is an old
democratic trick) it Is a libel On your po
litical Integrity, and ought to be hurled
back at your detainers. 1 believe that In
republicans of Omaha are progressive, that
the people here have high Ideals, and want
the party to be progressive and stand for
high Ideals. The people always expect the
republican party to be square-toed and un
equivocating, high minded and progressive.
The republican party must shrink from no
duty, shirk no responsibility and must
stand for clean men and clean methods,
good lawa and the highest possible political
Difference Between Parties.
"I believe in the repubUc-an party because
I have faith in the men who make up It
councils. I believe In the policies of tha
republican party, first, bscaus they are
light, and second, because when written In
the statute books they produce good re
sults; while democratic policies are wrong,
and produce disaster when enacted into
law. The democrats may deny that repub
lican policies are right, but no man on
earth can deny that they produce good re
sults. If there is anyone Inclined to orlti-
else the republican party, let him go back
over these thirteen years since 1897, when
the republican party supplanted the de
mocracy, and contemplate what has been
achieved. Then let him ask himself th
question, 'What more could the democrats
have done?'
"Who can point to any doaen years when
so much has been accomplished? Where
are the mistakes? When were the people
ever so proHperous or the government so
glorious as today? Let some democratic
speaker tell us how the free and unlimited
coinage of slver without the aid or con
sent of any nation on earth, would have
bettered conditions; tell, us, If he can. If
his free trade doctrine of buying anywhei
on earth and selling wherever we can,
could possibly have made u more pros
perous than we are today. Let him explain
to us In what particulars th democrat
would have been more successful In the
Philippines and Cuba and Porto Rico than
the republicans have been. I want him to
tell our people of Nebraska If he think
corn would have been higher, or wheat
or cattle or hogs.
Herord of Twelve Years.
"I have been a member of congress fur
twelve years and each session has enacted
more legislation than lu predecessor. The
last seslon enacted more good, wholesome,
up-to-date, progressive legislation than any
two ot Its predecessors. Inspired by th
spirit of Roosevelt and driven forward by
president Taft In the flesh, every pledge
has been redeemed and every expectation
ri alised. The republican party can alway
be depended upon to do things. Kor fifty
years It has kept legislation abreast of the
times. It has been responsive to th ideals
of th people anfl 'Progress,' has always
been Its watchword." ,
