the original wheat plant growing "wild

engaged in crossing the plant with bet

Agriculture James Wilson. ?;-eaktng In,
behalf of the re-election of President Taft

confined his address to a discussion of
the Issues between the republican and the
democratic parties, making no refeince
to the progressive party.
Secretary Wilson's address not only
discussed protection versus free trade,
but elaborately reviewed the accomplish

and eulogized the president for the great
work which he has sohieved in pcocur

the country a safe and stable administra

conserving the interests of the people In
every particular, so that there had been
no check to prosperity.
"Since the meeting of our first con
gress," said Secretary Wilson, "protec

in the shop and factory, has been the
most engrossing question around which
the strong men of the two great parties
have arrayed themselves. Republicans
believe in protection to . the extent of

believe protection constitutional, as they

(From a tSaff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Neb., Oct. 22.-(Spec!al Tel
egram.) Three hours were taken tiy at
torneys In the Taft mandamus case this
afternoon in presenting the case before
the supreme court, the case lasting until
5 o'clock. Most of the time for the Taft
committee was taken up by Genera!
Webster, while C. C. Fiansburg for the
bull moose committee occupied the
greater of the hour and a half for that
side. Mr. Fiansburg was up In the air
most of the last half hour on questions
put to him by the different members $t
the court In their efforts to get at the
facts in the short time allowed. At times
the crowd was convulsed with laughter
at the attempts of the attorney to
answer the qmistlons he at one time
quoting a section of the statute explain
ing to tlie court that It was as plain as
day, but when one-of the judges asktd
him a minute later to explain that por
tion where it said that the national com
mittee of the party shall determine which
faction o fthe party has a right to the
designation "republican," the attorney
caused a laugh by saying that he would
have to admit that the section was
badly muddled up.
A decision on the case will be given
Wednesday morning at 9 o'clock.
The case came up for hearing in ths
supreme court this afternoon. Deputy
Attorney General Ayers appeared for Sec
retary of State Walt and C. C. Flansberg
represented the bull moose electors. John
Lee Webster, W. A. Jefferls and Senator
Norris Brown appeared for the Tatt elec
tors. The supreme court room was crowded
with those interested In the case, among
them being A. C. Epperson, chairman of
the bull mobs republican committee; F.
F, 'Corrick, "chairman, l .-tbbulM,'p
committee; R.B. Howell, nations! com
mitteeman; Captain C. A. Adam of Su
perior, F. M. Currle, chairman of the reg-
ular republican committee.; General J. II.
Culver, vice chairman of the same com
mittee, and J. E. Green, president of the
Taft club of Lincoln.
About the same line of argument war
given by the attorneys as was made in
district court, and It was noted that the
Judges at times Interrupted the attorneys
by, asking questions. ...
Morrlsaey Loses Ills Case.
The new bull moose party has a right to
existence and a place upon ' the official
ballot, according to a ruling handed down
this morning by the supreme court after
hearing the case last night. The court
gives no opinion on the matter, simply ,
giving out the decision so that the aeere
tary of state may arrange the ballot in
time to certify to the county clerks to- ,
day, which is the last day. allowed by
law. '.''' ' '
The case was one In which Andrew M.
Morrlesey, democratlo candidate for the
office of attorney general, appealed to
the district court of Lancaster county for
a writ of mandamus to restrain the sec
retary of state from placing upon the
offloial ballot the nominees of the new
progressive party, setting out In his claim
that the party had ho right by law to a
party designation ori the ballot. The, case
was tried in the district court before
Judge Cosgrave, who held that the pro
gressive party had a right to a place on
the ballot. Mr. Morrlssey then appealed
the case to the supreme court, It being
advanced for a hearing yesterday on the
request of the attorney general in order
that a decision might be had in time to
arrange the bajot. ,

Another case which was handed down
this morning, and one which in the minUd
