-INCOLX, Neb.. March 30. (Special.)
Meter Rosewater Bled todar a written
protest asainst placing tha name of C.
U. Lobrck of Omaha on the primary bal
lot as a populist candidate for congress
in the Second district Tha protest la
predicated on the allegaHon that Mr., lo.
beck ia not a populist and Has not 'and
does not affiliate stlth that party. The
protect reached tha secretary of state's
ffico t;u s morning and Secretary Wait
Is In doubt whether It was received tn
lima to be of effect . Tha law. as be
sees it, rays the protest must be filed
within three' days after tha petition ts
filcJ, and tills limit expired yesterday.
The protest was mailed In Omaha In
ample time to have reached tha office
of the secretary yesterday, but fbr some
rejuon did not get In until this morninc.
Mr. Halt has not definitely ruled )et
whether, he can entertain tba protest.
Contrary to expectations, not a single
filing fr, office was received today. It
tad been expected that someone would
set In too late to be placed on the ballot,
but unless delayed trains. bring them In
the expected did no happen.
Denekor'a Socialist Flllast.
Secretary of State Wait some days ago
wrote M. II. Mccarty of O'Neill, who Is
acting as campaign manager for J. A.
Donohoe of that place, aspirant for the
democratic nomination for 'congress in
he Sixth district, regarding tha Utter s
filing aa a socialist candidate. Mr. Wait
called his attention te the fact that the
rorlaluit organisation hail made a filing
for the place and denied that Donohoe
was a candidate for their party.
Mr. Mccarty replies that ho thinks his
candidate bas a right to run as the candi
date of any party be may desire to repre
sent and Intimates that the question of
good faith or whether the signers to his
petition ere genuine members of the
party pretending to forward the petition
is none of the secretary's business. He
falls to answer, however, the questions
the secretsry asks. He also Intimates that
where' a petition is filed the secretary
must put the name on the ballet whether
the candidate flies an acceptance or not
In this, however, the law appears to be
plainly against him. Mr.. Walt points out
that Mr. Mccarty's trouble all arises from
the fact that he Is relying on a provision
of the law which appllea to the organisa
tion of new parties Instead of the section
which refers lo already existing parties.
I Fellrtle Men rirawd.
The news tram the North Pakota prim
aries was the overshadowing political
topic today. Secretary frank Curtis of;
the State Taft league voiced the general
sentiment of the president's' friends, so
fsr seen. Ho said:
Two things have beeav brought out
strongly ' bv tke election 'In. .North Da
kota. First, that the Insurgent element
of the fwbubttcan party for l.a Follette
and not foe Hoosevelt. Heeond, that she
west ta not nevcssaj-Uy for Roosevelt be
cause he happened to ride the range and
punch rattle among the cowboys in his
youth or because, forsooth, he recruited
, his rough rider regiment from the plains
country.. Within ten days the colonel has
lost both. New Mexico to Taft. except one
vote, and North Dakota to La Follette
unanimously. These are both rough rider
communities and It must be a disappoint
ment to his friends that he-was so over
whelmingly defeated In both states, there
being no effort made in North Dakota
to secure a Taft delegation. His vote
waa evidently divided between La Follette
and Roosevelt. .The Taft vote would logi
cally go to Hoosevelt. It It Is true as re
ported by tile latest returns that I-a
Follette hsa a plurality of 13.C00, it will
certainly encourage the I .a Folllette fol
lowers In other states and discourage the
Hoosevet men. In the meantime the cur
rent In this state and elsewhere is run
ning stronger and stronger towurd Taft
the man with a real, sure-enough progres
sive record. Taft will surely be nomi
nated. Carrie Primaries.
The La Follette men are Jubilant, All
along they have maintained the Wiscon
sin man would have a walkaway In North
Dakota and the. results, verify their pre
dictions; Secretary Corrirk of the La
Follette Jeague Issued the following state
ment: . . ; 1
"The overwhelming victory of Senator
La- Follette In North Dakota, should be
very gratifying not only to his friends but
to progressive republicans everywhere. It
Is likewise a vindication of the primary
JawA It Is renewed evidence of the
great strength of La Follette as a vote
getter, a fact that has bee nlndicated In
every contest where bis candidacy was
'submitted, directly to toe people." , . ,
The Roosevelt men do not care to say
much abount Abe affair. They say they
,are not down, cast, however, asserting
thst North Dakota had been thoroughly
organised by Senator La Follette's
friend before Roosevelt entered ffcc race
l and, therefore, the result Is not to be
wondered at '. ' '

The dinner was held at the Lincoln

Congressman R. L. Henry of Texas,
denied the progressive democracy of the
ttstlon waa opposed to domlnancy In bust-
ness achieved by fair enterprise and nor
mal methods. Ha touched on what he de
clared was ths great money monopoly
In New York, agslnst which he has been
inveighing In congress. . Referring to the
candidacy of Colonel . Hoosevelt, Con
gressman Henry said:
"'You will permit me to pay my respects

parity with their remote skin-clad an
cestors who lived in caves, fought on

the wooly rhinoceros..
They are. not in sympathy with men
of good minds and sound civic morality.'
He now not only wants to upset gov
ernment by Injunction, but kick out
the Judges and rip up the decisions. lie
Is a mixture end strange being."
Former - Senator Pettigrew In his ad
dress demanded radical stand by the
progressive democracy on the tariff and
trusts, and declared himself for a law
permitting, tha recall of the Judiciary.
It was 1 o'clock when Mr. Bryan com
pleted his speech st bis birthday banquet
If - anyone cams to hear whom Bryan
favored as the democratic nominee for

a covert reference to one whom he did

said that once whege democratic party
compromised on a 'candidate it lost more
than 1,1)00,000 votes. He roused enthus
iasm, when In Closing his speech, he said,
he had been credited with making a
great fight, when be waa a candidate,
but If "the party would give him a pro
gressiva candidate to fight for he would
show the party that he had never fought
He said democrats . differed as to a
candidate and that he was In some doubt
himself nd that be did not intend to
make his choice until he had to.' He
gave President Tsft a few raps and then
fired a broadside at Hoosevelt, charac
terising the letter's editorial on the third
term as silly. Ha denied that Roosevelt
was even a. progressive republican to be
