Fcidr fthowa l.ark of
Th Omaha lTlah school five will meet
the Lincoln toaaers In a promising name of
basket ball at tha Yount Men a 1'hrlstlan
association Saturday evenlnt. Illvalry be
wn these trams la at a high pitch by
rrason of recent grnnta and their results,
and spectators are assured of a lively con
teat. On February 4 Omaha Journeyed
to the capital city and defeated the Ijln
colnltea by an overwhelming acore of M
to 19. Thia result fired the Omaha lade to
tha point of exultation. IJncoln having been
credited with an Impregnable lineup. How
ever, after having loft to South Omaha
last Hanlrday. tha athletes of Omaha
proper are nof wo certain of tholr capa
bilities, and this lends a tone of exciting
Indecision aa to the probable outcome of
tha forthcoming contest.
Iclc of support by tha atudent body
and not enough enthusiasm for the Omaha
team, may be the cauae of the defeat.
South Omaha atudent were In great num
bers and also their cheering greatly ex
ceeded the Omaha rooters. The basket ball
players on the Omaha team think that a
certain amount of cheering should be given
them, and also that a little cheering and
enthualaam would probably be the meane
of the players winning tha game.
Furthermore. It Is rumored that Omaha
refused to play next Saturday unless a
rousing mass meeting Is held Friday noon
or after school. No mass meetings have
been held thua far during the present bas
ket ball season, whereas last year and In
previous years, numerous mass meetings
visa held the same as for a foot ball game.
Date are rhasjsjed.
On account of the change In the state
basket ball tournament which was to have
been held In Lincoln March 2. 3 and 4.
the game with 81oux City will be changed
to another date. The tournament will be
held In Lincoln on larch 9. 10 and 11. when
the Omaha basket, ball five will be repre
sented. The Sioux irity game which was
to be played at Kioux City on March 11
w ill probably be changed to March 4.
Coach Cams of the pmaha basket ball
(cam declared that he would not let the
tournament Interfere with the Sioux City
game, and If no arrangements can be made
with Hloux City for a contest on March 4,
Omaha will not enter the tournament, but
play the game scheduled with Sioux City
for that date.
Preliminary to the Omaha-IJncoln game,
tha Juniors and freshmen will clash. Any
one who has not seen the freshmen team
play cannot Imagine whttt speed and team
work they have developed within the last
few weeks. A large class In September
enabled C'arna to choose a fine squad of
Players for the freshmen team, which will
likely prove a formidable foe for .the Jun
lors. Neither class has chosen the five who
will constitute the respective team on
Saturday night, but about fifteen players
are out every afternoon from each class,
and a lively game la anticipated.
Senior Uatea Anaoaaceal.
Peveral dates have been announced fot
tha senior basket ball team for the re
mainder of the season. Next Saturday af
ternoon they will play the eenlora of Bouth
Omaha. To cover the defeat of the first
team last Saturday, the Omaha aeniora
are practicing yory hard, and will put In
their best players. . This game will he held
In the school gymnasium of tha Omaha
High school. A return game with South
Omaha will be played following the game
In Omaha on February 26. On March 2
the seniors will travel across the river and
play thn aecond team of Council Bluffs
High school. The first team beat the
Council Bluffs team unmercifully on Jan
uary 21, and the seniors expect to play
around the lowans. The last game on

usually the appenrance of a tiny sore

presence. But down in the blood the
treacherous infection is at work, and
in a short time its chain of symptoms
begin to crop out. The mouth and

out, sore and ulcers appear on the

and sometimes the hair comes out.

Iowa Does Not Deny
Charges of Spying

Counter Charge Against
The Dally lowan, tha official paper of
the University of Iowa, doea not deny tba
charges made against its assistant, xooi
ball coach regarding his spying on tba
Missouri foot ball eleven last fall. Tha
article, with the original atory, waa pub
lished exclusively In The Bea last week.
The lowan, according to tha Des Moines
Capital, makes counter chargea, but doea
not deny, tha alleged spying of tbeir as
sistant coach. The Capital comment on
tha attitude of tha lowan aa follows:
'It la Interesting to note how tha Dally
lowan, tha State university organ, dis
poses of the accusation made by Missouri
valley, aa well as eastern papers, that an
Iowa spy invaded the Missouri university
camp prior to the foot bail game between
the two schools last fall. We quote the
answer to the charge In full, In which
they do not deny the accusation, but make
' 'Iowa la charged with spying on Mis
souri. Last year a Princeton man re
quested that he be allowed to assist Iowa
In training for the Missouri game. Grif
fith assented. Somehow the Princeton
graduate who waa coaching Missouri knew

with a struggle to preserv the union, and
In th battle In which he waa tha commander-in-chief,
his guiding atar waa to

and all of this In th face of the fact that

structive radicalism Is progressive repub

Progressiva republicanism Is today waging

and patriotism that It people ar capabie
or ana in so doing It is waging a fight to
take this government out of the handa of
Problem of GoTeraateat.
"This aver has been and always will be
tha problem of th government, that la to
o legislate and to so manage and execut
our law so that non can be so high as
to b above th law and non so low as
to b below It. Th problem of the gov
ernment Is equality of opportunity for all
and special privilege for none. This Is th
pur philosophy of progressive republican
ism. W say that no corporation has any
right to have a man in the halls of con
gress or In a Stat legislature, or to have
a governor In any state, because that
would mean a government for apeclal In
terests and by special Interests, with the
result that the special Interest would re-
celev all of tha benefits and the people
none. Th fundamental laws of this land
make It unnecessary for any special In
terest to have a special representative In
any legislature or txecutlv department of
state because th judicial department of
th atat will nullify and declare uncon
stitutional any law that takes property
without du process o law, or that com
pels any party or corporation to do busl

In this situation today that If either of
th great partle of thia nation stands for

are antagonistic to this clasa that party
will b repudiated, and on th pthr hand.

Taft a Wis Leader.
"In th new lines of formation in th
political struggle for strategic position
progressive republicanism I rapidly ad
vanclng because It Is aggressive, because
It does not hesltat to assume new re
sponslbllities and advanc new things and
apply new remedie, and In all of this It
Is not experimental, becaus It makes and
will make aan and reasonable application
of old and tru principle to new condi
tions. Progressive republicanism will not
b swept away from it moorings by th
hysteria of som transient wav of public
opinion, becaus It leadership today I
guided by th unerring Interpretation of
the signs and conditions and tha hopea
and Inspirations of tba uncounted millions
of American cltisena. This leadership
knows Its duty and has th courage to
legislate for th many rather than for th
few. No better Illustration of this latter
position is anywhere to be found than th
attltud now assumed by President Taft
and I congratulate him from the bottom
of my heart that he ha at last assumed
that aggrsaalv Individual atitudt which
tha progressive republican of this nation
hav e been praying "that he would .assume
In th beginning of hi administration.
"Th progressive reciprocity treaty with
Canada and thia country Is th essence of
ganuln republicanism aa originally advo
cated by thst brilliant champion of this
doctrine. Jamee G. Blaine, and let ua hope
that President Taft will wag an uncom
promising fight ualng all tha resources In
the power of hla position to give to this
country fre trad relations between Can
ada and the United States. I am convinced
and morally certain that unless som such
action as thla Is taken and protective duty
withdrawn from commodities that have no
longer any need of a protective tariff, that
principle must forever perish ftom this
country, Th proposition 1 In substance
to hav fre , trade relations with our
brother and kin In. tha north; and why
should W not haver We ate people of the
same origin,' of the unit color, of tha
am language, of the same Institution
and of tha nam religion and hav bad for
year th am hopea and aspirations. If
fre trad between Nebraska and any other
state of the union right, then free trade
between all th states of th union and
Canada Is right. Th Umber and lumber
product of Canada is of Immena impoit
ar.ee to this great country. The entire lum
ber produce of this country ia today in
the handa of a glgantie trust, that is
thoroughly organised as to control the en
tire output of the raw material and the
finished product and therefoie Is able to
control the rlc of th lumber traffic In
thla country. ,
"Then there is th mtuteral resources of
Canada that will be of immense value to
the people of the states, uf course, some
all! say that it fores the Ameiican farmer
to come into competition with the Canada
farmer and he will be forced to take a
lower price fur kts produce. There is noth
ing in this proposition.
"We have alwaya been taught that the
principal reason for a protective tariff was
that our labor should not be cumiiled to
compete with cUeap foreign labor and act
be forced to come in contact with the pan-
per labor of hnrore. i'he Canadian farmer
Is an intelligent and wideawake man and
of a" high a clasa as farmers of the United
States. There Is no mure pauper labor In
Canada than In the United States. The
Canadian laborer Is as well organized and
well paid as Is his brother in th states;
but some will aay these reciprocity rela
tions will throw down the price of wheat
In the market of this country. It Is a well
known fact that th price of wheat Is fixed
by the surplus which I used for export
purpose. If wheat of the same quality is
being shipped from Toronto and Chicago to
Liverpool, then th pric of wheat at To
ronto and Chicago will b th same. The
fact la that we are coming In thla country
to prod ur very little more wheat annually
than what we conauma. .The quality of
wheat raised In Canada and that raised
her In the central slate Is vastly differ
ent. No. 1 hard spring whtva, which
grows with our neighbors on th north
cannot be raised her In this section of
th country. Up In Osage, Canada, where
an old neighbor of mine lives, I hav
known wheat to be $1.10 up there and 7
or M cents here, snd all because of the
difference In quality. W can never suffer
when pieced In competition wtih the same
grade of workmanship and cltixenshlp and
the food supply of this country and Can
ada can never be so oil tie to hav an
over-supply on th market. The wheat
area of the United States 1 all under cul
tivation and we are producing today ap
proximately that w can prodjee; with the
ever-increasing population a demand for
this food product Is constantly on the In
crease. Then again It occurs to us that In
case this reciprocity treaty got through
Canada wheat can be used by th miller of
tha states and our milling industry In
creased a hundredfold and Instead of ex
porting wheat to Europe, a w do now,
we will export the finished product.
"The proposition la, then, a I view It, that
th prlnclpla of protection as originally de
vised by the fathers of our country was to
be applied to those Institutions or Industries
that wer weak to strengthen them.
"This statesmanship was good and bene
ficial and has wrought wonders. But there
comes a time In every thing of earth, both
In th material and Individual condition,
when It has performed Its mission and there
is no longer then any excuse for its ex
istence, it was recognized that a high
protective tariff was in a country Ilk this
necessary to foster and build up gigantic
interests and It was believed and trusted In.
It was believed that competition amongst
themselves would keep down prices.
"I say her and now, and without fear of
successful contradiction that the moment
that these Industrie that ar the bene
ficiaries of the protective tariff destroys
the very object and purpose and design of
th principles that created them, then that
protection should be withheld. For In
stance, the protective tariff fostered and
established and created the great watch
Industry of this country, tl was the ob
ject of this tariff to. stimulate th enter
prise and protect th genlu of tha In
ventor and in the beginning thla worked
out well, butwhat have w today. Th
great watch industry today 1 controlled by
th great American Watch trust and price
ar absolutely and arbitrarily fixed by this
trust. There is no such thing as competi
tion in th business. This trust sells
watches In Europe for at least one-half
for-what It sella the same watch for In
this country and' makes the Jobber give
a bond that he will not send tha watch
back to America for sal again. There
ar many other details of these great trust
combination that haa been created by thi
protective tariff that might be enumerated.
"But don't let any on her tonight say
that we ar opposed to a protective tariff.
I am unalterably in favor of it; it I right
In principle and right in practice when
honestly applied. My contention i that
when a Institution or an Industry has
grown strong enough, tha protective tariff
to form a monopoly and thus control price.
That the prlnclpla of protective tariff
then, In that caae, no longer applies, so on
the whole let us without regard to party
lend every assistance to Prestdent Taft
In this laudable undertaking to establish
reciprocity trade relations between Canada
and tha atates. It he succeeds he will
bav done a greater aervlce to the people
of the United States than has been dona
by any other president In the last quarter
of a century. The Importance of this treaty
cannot be fully appreciated Just now.
Here we ar with only enough lumber to
last twenty year at th rat we ar going,
and all of thi In the hands of a truat,
and her are our brethren on the north
with enough timber and timber produce to
thi country for untold generation. Tha
horn builder can build a better home at
a great deal lower pric than he can at
th present time If we have thla treaty.
Lumber in thla country is now at prac
tically prohibitory prices. A house that
would cost Sl.&no ten years ago would coat
now 13.000 or $3,500, and who but the lumber
barons ar getting th benefits of these
prices. In short, 1 believe that th attl
tud now assumed and undertaken by
Preslden Taft Is not only a great patriotic
act, but It Is his official duty to push this
undertaking to the limit and let us hope
that he will.
"One reason why I am thoroughly con
vinced that this reciprocity Is riKht Is be
cause Joe Cannon and Lodge and Foraker
and Aldrli h of Rhode Island and old man
Depew, who have spent their Uvea In
legislating for the Interests and cor
porations, and against the people, are still
working at their old game and are against
It, and they recognise that President Taft
Is taking a position for the people and Its
reaulta will be for and on behalf of the
people and against the Interests of the
few favored ones and let us hope that
President Taft like those republicans of
old Wendell Phillips, William Lloyd Garri
son and Abraham Uncolii, will aland for
this because It la rltlit ami the result
lis sure to be right, and I aay it la our duty
without regard to part affiliation to help
hold up th hand of our president. In
this matter becaus he la working for tha
Mop!e and In behalf of tle reple and th
reault will be good becaus the principle
