John O. Yelsor lias Issued another of
his unique letters favoring the .candidacy
of Theodore Itoospv.lt for president. H
urtes his followers to keep at the good
work of arranging the big feed when It
Is hoped Roosevelt niny he Induced to
talk to all over the long distance tele
phone. Here Is the letter signed by
"As a committeeman of the republican
rnrty I feel that you would encourage
Interest In tha party In every way possi
ble regardless of whether It Is for La
1'ollette, Taft or Hoosovclt. Whatever
Interest may be aroused for any good
republican will not be labor lost. Cut If
no contests are made, partisans lose their
spirit and tha oi position la the gainer.
We have great respect for, the following
of La Follette and Taft but there are
large numbers Of people In Nebraska and
elsewhere who favor Roosevelt regard
less of expressions about his not want
ing the position. In tlus country where
all able bodied men are subject to draft
for the rank and file of the army, why
should we not favor drafting the commander-in-chief
in the pa mo way? That
la exactly what we are going to do. And
this is how 'tis done.
"Would like to have vu suggest a good
Koosevelt man at )arg and one from
your locality who yaj i ink would con
sent. If selected, to iK us presidential
electors fur Roosevelt "at the April pri
maries. We would also like to have you
get a few friends together and plan to
organise a club for Roosevelt to affiliate
with us In whuoplnj it up for T. R, If
you cannot do this yourself, you will do
the party great service by having some
Ivoosevelt supporter take hold of the mat
ter and comply with this request, unless
It is already being given propel (.Men
tion. Taft Is a man pre-emlncntl) quali
fied for tha supreme bench and should
have that position where ho would be
a blaster of law. We feci that although
he would recognize a principle of law
wherever encountered, he cannot tell a"
political schmno or scalawag. On this
acoount and because of trusting too
much in his supposed Menus he Is not
as well qualified for the otfice of presi
dent as he would be for tho other po
sition. "La Follette, too, is a great man, who
will do valiant service In the senate and
who will succeed Roosevelt as president.
Many people wish his success now as
Taft's friends wish luni success. How
ever, the question of succers we are In
terested In is that of the republican
party, which has been progressive since
the daj's of slavery. We have praise lor
all good men, whether standpatter or
progressive. T. R. is the one man, how
ever, with whom we can win, and we
know ha Is the right stuff. It we' talk
other candidates we ' would require con
ventlona and discussions and could never
agree. There are to be no conventions,
bo !fs,' 'ands' or 'buts' about it. This
movement Is for Roosevelt or bunt, and
we don't live In a busted state.
"We desire to have all of the members
possible join In a series of banquets con
Sected by long distance 'phone.
"However, If any are so situated they
cannot Join In our little revelry at the
banquet, include them as members Just
tha same for a sort of Red Cross division
to cheer on the discouraged.

number of 100 were selected at the meet
ing. Any member of the club may, upon
application, be named a delegate.
Preceding the organisation of the club
Mr. Webster was appo.nted chairman
and called for speeches from A. W. Jef-
fiiis and Judge Ben Baker. Both re
sponded with praise for the president and
alproval of his administration as thor
oughly effective and businesslike.
Denouncing the doings of such men as
Lincoln Stiffens, whose attempt to plant
the belief that he had swayed the courts
In the Mc.Nkinara case, was exploded, as
rasping discredit on the courts. Mr. Jef

suit and took possession of the animal.
When a sheriff's deputy appeared with a
replevin writ Hans made no resistance,
but promptly surrendered the cow. He
said he had purchased her for $36 and
hated to lose the money, but if she was
Smith's he was welcome to her.

INTO CONSCIENCE FUND
Local officials of the Illinois Central
railroad have $3.46 and they don't know
what to do with It. It's real money, too;
thiee bright, new and crisp dollar bills,
a silver quarter and two silver dimes.
Saturday morning when the mall came,
among other letters there was one with
an Iowa City, la., post mark. In a fem
inine hand it bore the address: "Th
Illinois Oentral t.cket office, Omaha.
Neb." Three 1-cent stamps had carried
the letter through the malls.
A hen this Iowa City letter was opened,
the sliver rolled out. Then a sheet oi
high grade paper, highly perfumed, was
drawn from, the envelope. On this paper,
which furnished the wrapper for the
money, weie the two wolds, "Conscience
Money" and tnat was all.
. Probably the K.Vi will go to tha Chicago
f.lces. but the local officers would like
to spend it for Christmas presents.

operation which will compel Win to cease
activity in church mutters for at least
three months. Ho d,-emrd It advisable to
resign that the bosrd might be free to

The resignation camn very unexpectedly
to the members of the church and many
express hope that the board will refuse
to accept his i-esignatlon, saying they
will make provisions for tho currying on
of tho church work during Ms absence.
Dr. Matthews will occupy the pulpit as
usual this morning and evening, Ihrn

F. M. Parsons, cno of the deacons of

"Nothing has been done by the board
as yet. It was rather unexpected. The
general opinion now is for leaving the

he recovers from his operation."

of unlimited credit by the Issuance of
notes to guarantee freight charges con
stitutes a discrimination under the EHklns

8tatea Judge John M. Klllltts In over
ruling demurrers to Indictments returned
agarrajt the Hocking Valley Railroad com
pany, handed down yeeterduy.
The Sunday Creek Coal company also
Is held liable, for Its demurrers to Indict
ments were similarly overruled.
The cases, it is said, are to be carried
to the supreme court of the United States
for a decision.
The plan was, It Is alleged, that the
Hocking Valley Instead of collecting cash
or compelling the Sunday Creek company
to deposit bonds or security for payment
of freight charges, permitted the coal
concern to give Its notes at the end of
each month and that the railroad never
made any attempt to collect on these, but
did collect cash In certain instances.
More than $2,466,000 worth of. rebates, it
was alleged by the government, were In
volved in the "unlimited" credit plan, and
that the rival shippers of the Sunday
Creek company had to pay cash or file
bonds or securities to guarantee payment.

JREEN SAYS NEW LAW
INTENDED "VOTE FOR SEVEN"
John P. Breen, who drafted tha commis
sion plan law, declares, In the face of
opposition, that his Intention and the In
tentlon of those who assisted him. was to
provide that seven men be voted for at
the primary. Preparation Is being made
to let the courts settle the matter If
City Attorney John A. Hlne haa ruled
on the point of law involved, holding that
It is clear but seven men can be voted
for of the fourteen to be nominated. Dan
B. Butler, city clerk, who wilt designate
on the official ballots how many shall' be
balletted for, says that unless he has fur
ther proof he will make it fourteen.
While the question of the number to
be voted for at the primary is mooted the
commission plan law in Its other pro
visions Is not Invalidated nor even ren
dered obscure by the one clause. The
question now disturbing the legal profes
sion will. If the plans of the supporters
of the law go not awry, be settled In time
to prevent It being made cause for dis
sension at the primary,
C. A. Jensen, the big heavyweight
policeman wrestler Is coming back Into
the mat game. He secretly has been
getting himself Into shape at his home,
where he haa fitted up a gymnasium. The
fact that Jensen haa been preparing to
get back into the game came out at the
wrestling match Friday night, when he
let slip a little statement which caused
a few of the knowing ones to wake up.
Jensen until last summer waa well
known among the grapplers of this sec
tion. He was taken sick early last sum
mer and had to retire from the game
until be regained his strength and condi
tion. That he Is In good condition Is
certain from the fact that he weighs five
pounds more than he ever weighed be
fore and Is as hard as nails. Prior to
his sickness Jensen was reputed to be
a comer among the heavyweights, hav
ing made a good showing against Wester-
guard alter being In the game but a short
while. He has taken on such men as
Bill Hokuf, Paul Domke, Farmer Bums
and several other ones and got the beet
of the argument In many instances.
When asked whether he was gplng to
come bock Into the game Jensen said he
was preparing himself for that purpose
and declared he never felt better In his
life. After a few more weeks ot har
training, he said, he will be prepared t
take on any of the bunch. Jensen 1
well known In Omaha, having been i
tho police force for several years. It
Is a fearless and quiet man and that
knows something about the game can b
testltlid to by several bad men who hav
been quieted by him at police heuu-quarters.
