COLLINS SAYS INSURGENTS .
ARE THE REACTIONARIES
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Neb., Oct.' 24. (Speclal.)
Frank W. Collins, formerly a resident
of this city, later appointed secretary
of the Federal Recodifying commission
by William McKinley and now an as
sistant in the office of the attorney gen
eral at Washington, was in Lincoln yes
terday on his way home from Kansas,
where ha waataklng testimony in a case
In which the federal government is con
cerned. Mr. Collins does not believe that the
present Insurgent move in the west has
the needed conservatism to insure Its
success In the parts of the country where
the belief ts more prevalent that the
government should be conducted on busi
ness lines. "President Taft is as sin
cere an executive as the people of this
country can ever elect to that high posi
tion and by far the most democratic
executive who has occupied the chair
Flnce the days of George Washington,"
Bald Mr. Collins.
"The movement undertaken by some of
the Insurgents, which they assert to be
progress! veneBs, is anything but that in
my estimation. The preseldent and those
who stand with him are In favor of rep
resentative government, and because of
this are assailed by the so-called pro
gressives as being reactionaries, when as
a matter of fact the insurgents are the
reactionaries themselves. The fact that
they want to go back to the Grecian form
of government Is sufficient to brand
them as such and to keep all conserva
tive citizens out of their ranks.
"I am a progressive and so are hun
dreds of those who believe as President
Taft does but not the kind of a pro
gressive that some of the radical men
love to designate themselves. That Is a
wild-eyed progresslveness a brand that
bodes no good for those who would have
to live under the authority of its domina
tionand manifestly a variety so unfit
for the people of this country as to
arouse thoughtful men to a keener real
ization of their duty toward this class of

CASE B YFEDERAL JUDGE
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Neb., Oft. 24.-(Speclal)
A demurrer In a case Involving the
financing of a Kansas railroad by Ne
braska men was sustained by Judue
Munger of the federal court today, the
case growing out of the failure of the
failure of the company to build an addi
tional Hue after a contract had been
made with that end in view.
The Nebruskans who owned the line,
eight miles In length, are Samuel Smith,
John E. Smith and Mr. Coleman of Beat
rice. They desired to extend It twenty
two miles. The stock of the road was
In their possession and was valued at
$1,000,000. They made a contract with
Mr. Ross to build the extension and
turned the full amount of the stock over
to the contractor.
Later Ross transferred the contract to
another man and neither he nor the
tranaferre attempted to fulfill the bar
gain, according to the allegations of the
Nebraska men. Suit was brought to re
cover against Ross end his surety. The

Han Stephens traversed Hurt county yes
terday in his effort to find voters that
might support him. and his effort was
a decided frost as far as finding any en
thusiasm for him was. concerned. The
Stephens party left Tekimah In the morn
ing about 8:.). There were few who ac
companied them. At CraJg they gathered
another auto or two and met a few of
the faithful. At Oakland another auto
was taken on and a few more of the un
terrlfled listed to Dan's Jangle about the
opposition there was to President Taft
among the democrats and the "Insur
gent republicans." and the party pro
ceeded to Lyons, where with the aid of
a number of faithful republicans enough
of a crowd was gathered to make the
prophet of Fremont feel like there were
some voters living In Burt county that
were at least Interested enough In him
to come and see what he looks like.
Strikes Cold Weather.
At Bertha, an Inland store point, there
was nary a soul to greet the party ex
cept the store keeper; and the various
members had to hug themselves to keep
rrom chilling to death from the frosty
reception. At Decatur the same chilliness
The party was glad to hasten back to
Tekamah for the evening. At 8 o'clock
the court house was used for Dan to ex
press his sentiments. With a crowd of
perhaps ISO, nearly half of whom were
republicans, Mr. Stephens commenced his
talk against Taft and his policies. From
an "argumentative point of view It was
as Inconsistent as It could have been
made. He complimented the president
on his foresight in reference to reciprocity
and declared that he thought It was a
good thing. He attacked the Payne-Ald-rich
bill, told his little good roads story
and appealed for republican votes because
he was against Mr. Taft. He was not
asking for democrat votes, but wanted
progressive republicans to be Bure and
vote for him.
From the tone of the meeting, with
never a murmur of applause during the
entire course of his remarks, Mr. Steph
ens must have again been chilled to the
marrow, for immediately on the con
clusion he put on his overcoat and sat
dwon to wonder why, In tills county In
which "Jim" Latta found republican
votes by the score, he could not even find
a friendly smile. If the condition In Burt
county is any Indication of the feeling
throughout the district, Mr. Stephens Is

Next Tuesday the republicans will tour
the county, with Jim Elliott as chief,

The Oakland band will accompany the
party. Twenty autolsts already have
signified their willingness to go and the
number will reach twenty-five before the
start will be made. A number of autos
from Oakland will take the band, and it
