Simple, consisting only of the singing of
in appropriate song, entitled, "Just Be

chorus of girls, an address by Judge

Cor settlement under the squatters' right
Four thousand people hushed In breath
less expectation had crowded into the
Pregory auditorium this morning to wit
ness the drawing of names for the Rose
bud and Pine Ridge land opening.
The start was delayed about thirty
tninutes on account of the tardiness of
one of the llttlo girls selected to do the
Hoth Girls Select First Envelope
The preliminary Intention had been to
have the two llttlo girls cast lots for the
tionor of drawing the first name, but at
the last moment Judge Wltten decided to
have both girls participate In this event
at the signal from the superintendent of
the opeatng, Virginia Foster of Dallas
, Mid Dorothy Slaughter of Gregory trlp-
ued forward to the stack of 03,000 en
vclopcs and made a Joint selection, both
assisting in conveying the envelope to
Judge Wltten. .
Without preliminary maneuvers or heal
tatioa Judge Wltten ciulckly opened tho
envelope and culled the name of the
winner. Mary J. Kendall of Rapid City,
B. D. The drawing and announcing of
names proceeded speedily from that time.
Walter I'cterson of Burke, who drew
No. 4 today, filed a squatter claim In
Gregory county Beven years ago, but lost
It on a contest. At noon 600 names had
been drawn and the local Interest In the
I drawing was beginning to lag.
Dennis O'Leary, correspondent of the
Associated Press, landed No. 145 in the
drawing here, but cannot derive any bene
fit from it, aa he only has a homestead
right for two acres. O'Leary was among
(he lucky ones in the Gregory county

woJld have to locate a subdivision as

cannot be done.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Oct. 24. (Special.) Secre
tary of State Walt has decided that the
name of Dan V. Stephens shall not go on
the populist ticket as tho candidate for
congress In the Third district at the com
ing election. Tho action by tho state
official follows a protest filed by Colonel
G. A. Ebeiiy, chairman of the repub
lican district commitU.'O, In which the
Stanton man alleged tliut a legally called
convention had never been held and that
therefore the certificate of nomination
filed by Stephens for that party was
void. Notice of tho decision was made
public late today and was as follows:
"In the matter of the certificate filed
In this department October 12, 1911, pur
ported to be signed by members of the
people's Independent party in convention
assembled at Norfolk, Neb., September
26, 1911, naming Dan V. Stephens as tho
cnndldate of said party for congress. In
and for tho Third congressional district
of Nebraska, and on October 14 there
being an objection filed against accept
ing said certificate, and complying with
Its provisions and demunds.
"A hearing was held on Saturday, Oc
tober 21, at 2 o'clock p. m.. as requested
In said objections, at which hearing G.
A. Eberly. as plaintiff or objector, ap
peared In his own behalf and S. 8. Sldner
on behalf of the defendant party.
"After hearing the testimony and argu
ments In the case as presented by wit
nesses and counsel and giving due con
sideration to briefs which were later sub
mitted by counsel, I have decided to sus
tain the objections of Mr. Eberly In the
main and therefore decline to certify tho
name of said Dan V. Stephens to the
county clerks of sold Third congressional
district as the candidate of the people's
Independent party for the following
"First That the democrattlc party has
no authority to call a convention of tho
members of the people's Independent
party aa Implied in said certificate.
"Second Tliat the call for said conven
tion was not Issued by, the state or con
gressional committee of, said people's In
dependent party at a regularly called
meeting of said committee, but the chair
man of the Mute committee of said party,
on his own volition, which action Is not
supported by the statute.
"Third Said certificate was signed by
W. G. Woolley as chairman of said con
vention, who upon examination as a wit
ness testified that he voted a democratic
ticket at the primary election August 15,
1911, and that he had not attended a popu
list convention or meeting In his county
for four or five years prior to the" one
that elected him a delegate to this con
vention. "Kvldence was also produced showing
that T. A. Thompson, who signed said
certificate, as secretary of said conven
tion, had voted as a democrat at the last
election, and whose name appeared on the
poll book of tho precinct in Knox county
where he voted aa a democrat.
"In view of thoso facts, and others not
expressed, I am of the opinion that this
purported people's independent conven
tion and certificate emanating therefrom
Is a usurpation of the functions of the
people's Independent party for the use
and benefit of, a candidate of another
party who has no claims for Its support
by affiliation or advocacy of its prin
"While, in my Judgment, this opinion
will not change a single vote for or
against either candidate in ' the contest
for congress in tho Third district, there
Is a principle Involved in the issue which
both the republican and democratic party
compiled with in following the provisions
of the law made and provided In such
cases, while In this case it has been only
partially observed in calling the conven
tion and formulating and sighing the re
quired certificate for this department.
"It Is of general knowledge that the
people's Independent party has no per
manent state organization based on
county representation, but is kept alive
only by members of other parties for
convenience when needed for fusion pur
"Personally, I havo great admiration
for the founders of tho populist party.
and to them must bo given the credit for
originating many of the needed reforms
and wholesome laws that have been put
In our statute books, but generally speak
ing, the men that did things In the name
of populism have aligned themselves with
other parties, and ore not instrumental
In attaching the party name as the tall
to the kite of other parties."

Allegations tn 11111.
The bill alleges many acts In pursuance
of an alleged conspiracy covering several
years, and that .some of them were per

The theory of the bill Is that while no

dent Taft returns to Washington next
month not tho leaH of his labors will
he the filling of Judicial vncanclra which
havo arisen since the adjournment of con
gress In August.
There Is practically no chance now that
a successor to the Into Justice Harlan will
be selected y the president until he
reaches Washington. It was said today
that Mr. Taft has given no consideration
nt all as to a successor to Justice Har
lan. He has received many suggestions
as to how he should fill the vacancy on
the supreme bench, and many names, In
cluding those of Attorney General Wlck
ersham, Solicitor General Lehmann and
several others prominent In public, life
have been mentioned. It was said today
by members of the president's party that
the president has determined not to take
up the matter until after congress meets.
In addition to appointing a Justice of
tho supreme court Mr. Taft will probably
fill this winter existing vacancies In New
York, Montana and Wisconsin districts,
and also a successor to United Htates
Circuit Judge Grosscup of Chicago. In
addition to these Judicial appointments
the president will name a member of the
International boundary commission to
succeed the late (Senator Carter and
United Htates marshal for the northern
district of New York.

Daniel Hulllvan, Union Paclflo engineer,

Is very angry st Veno because Vono's
advertisements have cent a horde of rheu

Mr. Rulllvan says ha made complaint at
the Veno office and was told that prob

But to date he has not beon able to get
