Forty-nine years ago, on a farm In Pler
pont township, Ashtabula county, Ohio,
Chester H. ' Aldrieh was born. Today he
has come back to his birthplace to visit his
parents and friends, whose wel) wishes
were all he took with him when he left
in his youth to carve his name In the his-
tory or me west.
"I '? Hke conquering warrior." said
the governor-elect of Nebraska when he
seems natural and homelike and I
going to make the best of my visit."
He had hardly said this when he asked
about the. hunting. And a few hours iater
he was out with a shotgun chasing rab
bits through a woods where, as a barefoot
boy, he hunted snakes. Hunting, he said.
I will be his recreation until he leaves for
Nebraska again, December 1.
Mr. Aldrlch's parents were overjoyed to
see him again and hear his success told by
their son's own Hps. His mother had no:
seen him In years and she wept as she
rained kisses on his face.
Mr. Aldrieh Rays he owes much of his
success to his education received in Ohio.
He went to the district schools and later
became a teacher. After leaving Ashta
bula county he taught school In Ulysses,
Neb. But he wanted to enter public af
fairs He studied law and In 1907 was
elected to the state senate.

In his letter announcing he was coming
to visit his birthplace the governor-elect
bitterly arraigned the so-called gang rule
"I will rid Nebraska of the gang that
has been ruining It and will make It a
state to be proud of." he wrote.
Interviewed at his old home. Mr. Aldrieh
talked freeely of the political situation In
hl" ,,a,e 'na vicinity. He said Nebraska,
jowa nnn Kansas are overwneimingiy lor
"Taft's administration is not altogether
popnlar In Nebraska." he said. "Taft is
regarded as thoroughly patriotic and hon
t est. but Impractical In carrying out poli
cies. His Winona speech lost him the con
fidence of the west. He embarrassed and
, withheld patronage from Congressman
j Norrls, who. by the way. Is also an Ohio
t born man, and the people could never un
derstand. If Taft Is truly progressive, why
; he antagonised the very man who stood for
, Roosevelt and the policies Roosevelt sup
ported. "The recent election Is an absolute Indi
cation that the people are dissatisfied with
the Payne-Aldrteh tariff law, as not In
compliance with the party's platform
pledges as Interpreted by Mr. Taft. It Is
a warning to the republicans that they
must get busy and represent the people.
The dunocratic party can be trusted to
make enough mistakes to Insure the elec
tion of a republican president In V2.
"As to my policy as governor, I will pre
serve and enforce the corporation laws of
the state. I will encourate liberal appro
priations for the state university and nor
mal schools. I will enforce the liquor laws
of the state and encourage the enactment
of a county option statute."

"We white rlbboners consecrate our

which we pray in the heart, home and na
tion until the greatest stumbling block,
the legalized traffic In liquor, Is taken out
of the heart of the home and nation."
Then as the chorus of "America" re
sounded through the hall, each member of
the Illinois delegation passed by the
statue' and deposited a flower at the feet

to sit In the case:
"Considering the character and nature
of the defendants' averment and the prox
imity In point of time and my employment

grand Jurors heard evidence, regardless of
technical propositions Involved, It becomes
obvious I cannot hear the case. I will send
the case to my colleague In the district

this was Impossible, that the United States
supreme court had made It mandatory In
such cases that the certification be made
to the circuit court.
