Some there are who have In street' comer

Viryan to Hitchcock when Senator Allen
received an appointment as United States
enntor with the Ingratitude shown by
llltehcuck when he repudiated a debt owed
to man In desperate need the man whom
he admitted In an open confession had

Will Mr. Bryan and the Bryan following
support a min who admitted that he had
borrowed money from Joseph S. Hartley,
former state treasurer, and repudiated the
debt because It had become outlawed while
Hartley was in prison?
That question Is being asked on every
hand and many who are answering It have
repudiated the Omaha editor.
At the Lincoln hotel today a former
member of the legislature told of the time

A Desnecratle Dissent.
Hastings Republican (dem )
The Republican believes for the goid of
the party as well as clean politics that the
leaders of the party In this state should
lose no time In politely requesting Mr.
Hitchcock to step aside make way for the
selection of another who can appeal to
voters with a clear conscience and record.
The Republican believes the thing for the
leaders to do Is to force Hitchcock to step
aside and to as quickly as possible cham
pion the best man for the senatorial toga
and the logical man by the usual precedent
of selection is Governor Shallenberger. The
Republican knows whereof It speaks when
it says that Governor Shallenberger has
ihown the better Judgment In not commit
ting himself to unreserved supKrt of Dahl
man. It la a matter of confidential knowl
edge among some leaders that the Omaha
Dahlman machine resorted to the moot
strenuous campaign In behalf of the candi
dacy of Dahlman. The name of the editor
of the World-Herald has beea blamed
along with the teat.

Grand Island Independent.
It is up to Mr. Hitchcock to explain
satisfactorily to the people of the state
what he meant by saying that he had not
borrowed any money of the state treasurer,
or denying the original charge without
being more explicit about it. and taking
the people into his full confidence rlfrht
away if he has even the semblance of an
excuse Incidentally, It also throws a most
desirable, I kIiI on the World-Herald, which
was so Insistent a few years ago that a
Mr. Goold. a republican candidate for
regent of the University of Nebraska, who
did no more than Mr. Hitchcock has evi
dently done, withdraw from the republican
ticket. Mr. Goold withdrtw upon the re
quest of the republican committee.

Five years ago the New York Nationals
were too strong for them. So In this year

the high cost of living problem confronting
even such heroes as the Philadelphia, to
say nothing of the Chlcagos, with winter

Howard's leading editorial In headed with
the c iptlon, "Hartley's Partner," and reads:
"Last week thn editor of The Telegram
submitted proof In the handwriting of ft.
M. Hitchcock that lie had shared In the
state treasury nhorlago under Treasurer
Bartley. At tho sama time we appealed to
the democratic state committee to remove
from the democratic ticket the nnme of
Treasurer Hartley's parther In the treaiiury
shortage, and put VP the 'name of soma
worthy democrat wlioliaii not bad any
thing to do with the slatireasury defeca
tion. "Mr. Hitchcock, thn partner of Bartley
In the state treasury shortage, was unable
to refute the positive evidence against him.
t'nder advice of a most cunning lawyer ho
mado an explanation which has been thn
laughing stock of the state, because. In
stead of helping him out of thn mire. It
caused him to sink deeper into the mud
of his own shame. Like every offender
against the law, Mr.' Hltchcovk became
very angry when the evidence arahiBt htm
was published In cold type. In bin anger
he bitterly denounced his partner in the
treasury shortago. and referred to Bart
ley as a blackmailer.
For reply to Mr. Hitchcock's denial of
his partnership with Bartley. the ex-stats
treasurer sent to Chairman Byrnes of the
democratic state committee a request that
he be permitted to appear before the com
mittee and submit further evidence re
garding Mr. Hitchcock's partnership with
Bartley In the disappearance of the public
money from the state treasury.
Afraid ot the Proofs.
"Did Chairman Byrnes accept the offer
of Bartley to furnish further proof of the
partnership between Hitchcock and Bart
ley? Not much! Chairman Byrnes is a
very able and artful political manager. He
knows that Hitchcock Is In a bad boat,
leaking at every crack. He knew tleu
Hitchcock would not dare face his partner
In the treasury shortage In a hearing be
fore the committee. And then he did the
next best thing he could do tor his client
He wrote tiie motion for a continuance
and sent it to the papers for publication.
"Let us hasten to congratulate Chairman
Byrnes upon his ability vtn defense of a
confessed sharer with Hartley in the treas
ury shortage. That letter stamps Chair
man Byrnes as a keen lawyer. We have
no quarrel with Chairman Hyrnes for writ
ing the letter. He has accepted the Job of
defending Hartley's partner In the state
treasury shortage, and we believe he Is
putting up a defense aa good as Judge
Sullivan ever put up- in behalf of any
"All The Telegram started out to ac
complish in thla matter was to submit to
the public the positive proof of his partner
ship between Hitchcock and Hartley In the
business of making the money ot the people
dlwappear from the state treasury. We
have accomplished our task. It la not our
fault that the state committee lias not
forced Bartley's partner to get out of the
state MUI Holds Sack.
"And1 now we have further proceedings
In the matter to the two partners. We du
not know what the result of the quarrol
between the two partners may be. We do
know that Partner Hitchcock Mill owes the
staie of Nebraska many thousands of dol
lars, interest and principal, representing
money borrowed from Htats Treasurer
"Perhaps Hartley's partner, fl. M. Hitch
cock, may be able to win his way to a
seat in the United States senate, there to
lend companionship to Lo'rimer. We do not
believe it. Thousands of Nebraska demo
crats have hoped that the rtate. committee
would force Mr. Hartley's partner off the
democratic .ticket, and nominate In his
place some democrat for whom democrats
might cant a vote and not be ashamed.
All hope In that direction is now dcd.
All that is now left for democrats will be
to write upeii the blank line oil the election
ballot the name of some dean democrat as
tlielr choice for I'nlted states senator.
Many democrats will vote for Governor
hhailenberget. Many will vote for Judge
hulllvan. Many will vote for Willis Reci
and other clean democrats In other serlloiil
of the state "
