Howard Ealdrige Says Not Necessary
to Go . Outside, to .Take
- . . Stand. .
PROGRESSIVES WILL CONTROL
Thinks that Wilson Will Not Be as
Strong in the West as Clark
Would Have Been if . '
Nominated. . '
"It is not necessary to go outside of
the republican " party , for progressive
measures," said Howard H Baldrige,
candidate for congressman on the repub
lican ticket, upon his return from he
east and Chicago, where he attended tha
"republican national convention '
. "The party will be in control of men
who favor progressive legislation and if
Mr. Roosevelt goes outside' of the jarty
to secure this legislation,. I think he will
make a mistake. . t
"It is to-be regretted- that the ticket
nominated , at the Chicago convention
was not such as to . appeal .to the .united
support of all the elements of the repub
lican party. It seems to me that a third
candidate would haveMlope, this, . It fur
ther seems a subject, of, .regret that Mr.
Rooseyejt. should make any attempt to
organize a party along; progressive lines
outside of the republican party. , . , . .
, "The republican party, ever since the
days of Lincoln has passed laws under
which the people of this country have
prospered and grown. AU the .beneficent
legislation for the last half century has
been obtained through the' republican
(arty and I am not willing to admit that
the party has outlived its usefulness. "The
party ought to progress an will progress,
but I am in favor of progress within the
party and not outside of it.
;'I shall conduct- the best campaign I
can along the lines that progressive legis
lation can be accomplished to the best
advantage through the republican party
and that those .bosses who stand in the
way of progress will be overridden.
"Governor-Wilson, in my judgment, is
not as strong a man before the people
of the west as Champ Clark. He is a
high type of a' school master In politics,
but is not likely to command the support
of the common people that Clark would
Superficially the democrats may seem to
be united, but the fierce contest at Balti
more has left wounds in some localities
that are likely to be as hard to heal as
some that were left at Chicago."
to Discuss Trend
MADISON,'. Wis., July fl.-The call for
the conference here July 29 to August' 1,
to "discuss modern journalism, its Ideals,
its trend and Its condition" asserts that
three important factors are influencing
modern , journalism. The capital required
to maintain a newspaper is constantly
increasing, says the call, with the result
that newspapers are frequently owned or
controlled by men with money rather
than with ideas; the returns from ad
vertising, are rapidly increasing, resulting
in a greater dependence on the adver
tising for maintenance and a . growing
endeavor by. the advertiser to Influence
the policies of the papers, and the news
paper is coming to be an Investment and
not infrequently Is run merely to serve
the business, social or political Interests
of its owners.
The call va Issued by the extension
division of the of the University of Wis
consin today. .
Among those who have signified their
purpose to attend are: Melville E. Stone,
general manager of the Associated Press;
W. J. Bryan. William Allen White, Nor
man Hapgood. editor of Collier's WeeRly;
Charles H. Grasty of the Baltimore Sun

JOHNSON TELLS OF THE PLANS
Working Scheme of the California
WOULD GIVE THE STATE TO T. R.
Effort Will Be , Made - to Elect
Electors Who Will Be for the
Colonel in Presidential
SACRAMENTO, Cal., July 6.-Governor
Johnson gave out a statement of the
plans of the California progressive re
publicans today, after the conference of
state leaders yesterday, ......
The statement indicated that the. ro
gressives, as represented y the state
administration would, make every effort
to swing California's electoral vote' for
Roosevelt, and continues: ,
"Our presidential electors, under the
law, are selected by the candidates for
'the legislature chosen at direct primaries.
There is a wide divergence of opinion as
to whether candidates for presidential
electors can by petition be put on the
ticket by a party designation, or, If thus
put on the ticket, can be voted for In a
single group.' There are many who- in
sist that the only party designations that
can be used are republican, democratic
and socialist, 'T
"It has therefore been determined that
those candidates for the legislature in
he republican party who. are. progressive
shall agree H . they are sucoessf ul, to
nominate candidates for presidential elec
tors who will vote for Roosevelt for presf
dent . ' , ;- V 7 . '. '.
"In addition to making the fight for
candidates for the legislature that elec
tors favorable to Roosevelt shall be
nominated, petitions will be circulated, If
it can legally be done, to put Roosevelt
electors upon the ballot, In any event.
"The doubt upon this point is conceded.
Because of this doubt the -other course
is rendered necessary. At the next
session of the legislature we shall at
tempt to amend the , election laws so
that any party designation such as 'pro
gressive may with out question be put
upon the ballot by petition.
"It also ' was determined that repre
sentatives to the conference , at Chicago
next month should be elected by the dele
gates and alternates who attended 'the
Chicago convention, and that a full quota
from California should be sent there."
Rules to Regulate
Milling in Transit
WASHINGTON, July 6.-Gross frauds
and violations of the law in the ex
ercise of the "milling and transit priv
leges" accorded to shippers, princi
pally in grain, grain products and lum
ber, have been revealed by the Inter
state Commerce commission's extensive
investigation on that subject just com
pleted. Railroads will be required to
establish drastic regulations to safe
guard the operation of the privileges
In the future. , ,
The commission holds that It possesses
adequate power under the law to regu
late transit pnvileges and may pre
scribe regulations that will free the
operation of transit privileges from any
Some carriers, ha vi attempted to con
form to transit regulations previously
made by the commission, while others
have practically Ignored them,
t "Thus," says the commission, "a con
dition of great inequality , has grown
up in the handling of grain and its pro
ducts under tariffs wording transit
The rules laid down by the commission
for safeguarding trapslt privileges on
grain and grain products cover the
situation exhaustively and are required
to be established by the carriers by
August 15 and to be maintained In oper
ation for at least two years.
High Price of Beef .
Due to Slaughter ; ;
of Young Stock
DULUTH, July . "The cause that has
been raising and continues to raise the
price of beef and make it scarce is the
slaughtering of young calves," said
Marcus Ballanger, government live stock
Inspector. ' here today.
"There are 8,000,000 young calves being
killed every year . that average eighty
pounds apiece. If left fb grow another
year they would average 500 pounds
apiece; ' .
'But suppose " we had a law like
Argentine, which prohibits the killing of
female bovine- until they are T years old.
porterhouse steak would cease to be a
luxury. Beef is high because it is scarce.
National Council of Education Se
' verely Criticises Present
TOO BOOKISH AND SCHOLASTIC
Report Which ts Read by President
of Normal School Says Too Many
Teach rs Are Untrained Col- ,
CHICAGO, July 6. High school educa
tion throughout the United States was
branded as generally bookish, scholastic,
abstract and Inadequate to meet the prac
tical problems of life, in a report sub
mitted to the National Council of Educa
tion of - the National- Education associa
tion today. ' . . , . ..
The whole trouble with our high school
education, declared David Felmley, presi
dent of the state normal school at Nor
mal, 111., in reading the report, "is that
it Is regarded too much as merely a
preparation for the university. About all
the high school teachers,, are college
graduates, who have no adequate Knowl
edge of affairs outside of colleges.
. TWe. .tSlnkT-niore attention should be
given to the training of teachers from
among high school pupils."
Among those who prepared the report
were John R. Kirk, president of the
state normal school at Kirksvllle, Mo.,
and H. H. Seerley, president of the state
normal school. Cedar Falls, la,
J. Stanley Brown, Jollet, 111., high school
superintendent, a member of the com
mittee, dissented from some of the criti
cisms. Will Ask that the
Property Values of
the State Be Raised
; Because property valuations . in Doug
las county have been Increased $27,000,
000 by County Assessor Shrlver. and the
county equalization board the county
commissioners x will go before" the
state equalization board at Lincoln
with a demand that values over the
state be proportionately increased so that
Douglas county will not have to pay
more than its just share of state taxes.
The board of county commissioners has
authorized County Commissioner Frank
C. Best , to gar before the state board
when it convenes, July IS, and arrange'
for a hearing on application of Doug
las county for an Increased valuation of
property in other counties. When a date
for hearing is set, other members of the
Douglas county board and Assessor
Shrlver will go before the state board
to urge higher valuations.
Douglas county's valuation now is be
tween 1225,000,000 and t227.O0O.O0O. This, say
the . county commissioners, is none too
high for Douglas county, but is far
greater in proportion to actual' values
than the valuation elsewhere in the
state. The complaint is not that Doug
las county's valuations are too high, but
that those of .other counties are too low.
Omaha Creamery -Makes
A safe and sane Fourth ( brought to

amount of business ever transacted in
the same length of time. The Alamito
Sanitary Dairy company has Just com
pleted figures for the business transacted
July. 2, which is the day they delivered
cream to the ice cream manufacturers
for Fourth business. Last Tuesday they
shipped out of Omaha over 2,000 gallons

turers of ice cream in Iowa and Nebraska.
Later, in the form of ice cream, it went
into -seven different states.
"This amount of cream," said Charles
F.. Sen wager, manager of the concern,
"is the product of over 4,009 cows and
required more than 600 milkers to care
for them. The herd would be ten miles
long if the cows were placed in a line
but I find on consulting our records this
vast amount of cream was produced by
nearly 500 different herds Jn this locality."
