BEAVER CITY. Neb.. July S8.-(Spe-clal.)-John
Stevens of this city a repub
lican candidate for the republican nomi
nation of governor, received the eterotyped
circular letter from the University Home
Campus extension committee, asking his
attitude toward university removal, and
the following Is a copy of his reply mailed
to the committee at Lincoln today:
BEAVER CITY, Neb., July 26. 1914.
University Home Campus Extension Com
mittee, Lincoln. Nb. : Oentlemcr: 1
am In receipt of your ultimatum of the
24th wherein you demand a specific state
ment of my attitude on university lo
cation, and In spite of tho fear and trem
bling that have possessed me since read
ing the same I take my pen In hand to
Indite my humble reply.
First permit me to suggest that you
discard the htgh-soundlng name of your
committee, and frankly call yourselves
tho Exploiters' Bulldozing committee, as
your letter carries tho Implied threat,
boldly written between the lines, that If
the reclplont falls to line up promptly on
your side of tho question you arc prepared
to shunt him Into oblivion without any
tedious cereraonlea
University ott on Wheels.
This question ought to have passed to
a spcaceable settlement without any
heated controversy, and would doubtless
have done so but for your Ul-advtseJ
activity, which has causod the respective
factions to assumo an attitude off belli
gerency heretofore wanting. I have
noticed the effect that your letter has had
upon other candidates, and I am pleased
with the large number who havo red
your Impudence; however. It Is a pitiful
sight to behold the servile few who havo
ben brought to their knees by your
amazing bit of hot air. For my part 1
beg leave to Inform you that tho uni
versity Is already on wheels, headed
toward the state farm, and I prpose to
put my shoulder to one of those wheels
and push with all my misguided strength.
I am only one of a large number of
benefited citizens of the state, who are
convinced that the university as at pres
ent located has been nnd now Is, largely
dcmlnated by certain Intreats In Lincoln,
and that Lincoln has been, and now Is
largely dominated by Its saloons; the
interests of the university being thereby
subordinated to those of Lincoln s
saloons. I expect to assist In redeeming
the university from the the blight pf
Lincoln's saloons, and the only way in
which this can be accomplished Is by
removal of the university.
Refuse to Control Saloons.
1 do not charge that Lincoln Is any
worse than any other saloon town, but
nevertheless It Is a saloon town, and as
such as far worse than It ought to be.
and far worse than It would have been
If It hod discarded the saloons at tho
proper time. Tho people of Lincoln them
selves settled the question of university
removal at the mJnlclpal election follow
ing the passago of the Temoval act. By
deciding to retain the saloons it for
feited all claims to the retention of the
university. Of course, Lincoln had a
right to retain the saloons, as they are
strictly its own affair; but please bear
In mind the fact that university Is the
property of the whole state, and the peo
ple of the state have a perfect right
to pack It up and move It away when
ever they may choose to do so.
Furthermore, when tho people of tho
state suggested that the city of Lin
coin should hold these glaring evidences
of its culture back a reasonable distance
from the university it insolently refused
to do so, and persisted m planting ana
maintaining them almost at tho very por
tals of tho greatest educational Institu
tion of the state. This act alone waa
equivalent to handing the university Its
hat and cane.
Attempt to Commit Supreme Court.
I belle vo that the voters of the state
who have tho welfare of the university
at heart are thoroughly awake on this
subject, but If not 1 promise to do my
share in the task of arouBlng them. You
honorable committee has not considered
to designate tho particular form of
destruction, which It proposes to mete
out to refractory candidate, but let It
be what It may, I have Incurred the di
rect doom Imaginable, and shall ask no
quarter. It Is rather unfortunate for
your committee, however, that It was
not willing to content Itself with tactics
that would appear more modest and loss
militant. It has even demanded of the
chief Justice of tho supreme court that
he commit himself In advance upon this
question, which In the form of litigation
is quite liable to come before him for
determination. This la not only a gross
Impropriety, but Is so rank that it act
ually transcends tho remotest bound ot
common decency. It Is certainly to be
hoped that the rank and file of the bo
called extentlonlsts do not approvo ot
such extreme and questionable measures.
And now farewell. You go to herald
my pitiable condition far and wide among
your enfluenttal henchmen, while I plod
wearily on In my helpless Ignorance.
Nevertheless, mark this predictions: The
time Is fast approaching, when the boys
and girls of Nebraska will be able to
reach our university without walking
paBt the mouth of a dive. Fer respec

Welcome Everywhere
ARAPAHOE. Neb.. July S5.-(SpecIal.)-Arapahoe's
sociability tour of Furnas
county yesterday was a succesMon of
hearty receptions at the seven towns on
the route of eighty-seven miles. Twenty
three automobiles, carrying an even hun
dred passengers, made tho start at 8
o'clock and all the cars mode a perfect
trip except one, which broke down on the
last leg of tho Journey.
The first stop was at Edison, where a
monster early morning crowd gave tho
Arapahoe boosters a rousing reception,
and sent one car along with tho parade
to represent their town. Oxford peoplo
wero out In large numbers and the band
stand was opened for a concert by the
Arapahoo band.
The roads from Oxford to Beaver City
wero heavy with mud, but the running
schedule was maintained. Five cars of
Beaver City boosters repaired a bad mud
hole ot a washout, and escorted the cara
van Into the county seat, where steam
ing dinners were waiting for tho hungry
travelers. All meals were free to visitors.
Hend'ey, tho smallest town on the route,
gave the Arapahoe people one of the
biggest receptions of tho day. Wilson
vlllo boosters sent out five cars to re
ceive their visitors and a largo crowd
was waiting on tho main street.
There were thirty automobiles from
Arapahoo, Edison and Beaver City when
the procession reached Cambridge. After
tho band concert and address by Mr.
Northup, tho Cambridge and Arapahoe
ball teams played ono of the best games
of the season. Cambridge won In the
tenth by a score of 3 to 2. The extra In
ning gamo and tho following reception
by Cambridge citizens sornewhat delayed
the start for Holbrook. where the boost
ers arrived after dark, with a storm
threatening. The band played one piece,
after which the paraders hustled home,
and tho rain blew over.
Upon tho whole, Arapahoe's sociability
tour was the most successful of Its kind
ever attempted In Furnas county, not
only for the number 3f boosters making
the trip, but for the monster receptions
along tho route.

Doctor's Boyish Face
Reveals Skin Renewer
I heard the other day the story of the
physician with so admirable a skin thai
all his women patients asked his secret
He told one, who generously told others,
that, knowing the remarkable absorbent
property of ordinary mercollzed wax, he
concluded this substance would make an
excellent complexion renewer and pre
server. Knowing the wax could do no in
jury, he began using It after shaving. He
soon observed that the old, withered, col
orless cuticle was being gradually ab
sorbed and replaced by younger, healthier
skin. This was the simple secret of tho
silver-haired doctor with the boyish face.
The secret became public property. Now
women everywhere use mercollzod wax,
applying It nights like cold cream, wash
ing It off mornings continuing until tho
complexion Is entirely renovated. An ouncti
of this wax, procurable at any druggist's,
will banish the worst complexion.
Another valuable rejuvenator used by
this doctor was a wrinkle-remover and
preventative In the form of a face bath,
made by dissolving an ounce of saxollte
In a half pint witch hazel. This also has
become famous. Fashion Revlew.-rAd-vsrtlsement.

LINCOLN. July 24 (BpeclB4.)-The Lan
caster county democratic convention Is a
thing of the past and demonstrated that
Bryan's favorite sayings, "let the peoplo
rule" and "free speech." are all right to
talk to the great common peoplo about,
but aro sadly out of place In a democratic
convention when It Is necessary for tho
bosses to carry the day.
Old time methods whero everything was
cut and dried was In evidence. The chair
man was picked In advanco and his mem
ory was mighty good when It came to the
selection of members of the resolutions
committee and tho other committees
neefssnry to run tho convention and to
get tho results wanted by tho Bryan
When John G Maher, that valiant dem
ocratic war horso of many battles, sought
to speak before the convention against tho
cut-and-drlcd resolutions prepared, the
chairman refused to hear him. and It was
only on frequent demands that he be
heard that the autocratic official of the
convention consented to let him speak,
and then It was Impossible for him to be
heard because of tho howling of the dele
gates for him to sit down.
Holler Well Oiled.
I His valiant lieutenant, "Tower and
i Power" Allen, who has been one of the
i mainstays of tho democratic party of
Lancaster county in'' tho years gone by,
I demanded that the democratic prlnclplo
of free speech bo exemplified right there,
! but to no avail. He. too, was howled
down and tho Bryan steam roller, manlp-
ulatcd by Charlie Bryan, was run over
his prostrate body and flattened out like
a pancake.
It was a victory for tho Bryanltcs which
may cost them dear In tho state conven
i tlon. Bryan and Bryanlsm was rampant
; at every turn. Senator Hitchcock failed
to receive nn endorsement, nnd instead,
was given a sort of a back-handed slap
' In jthe resolutions, which commended "all
members of congress who had been loyal
, to President Wilson."
Tho old democratic roller, In the hands
'of Brother Charlie and Brother-ln-Law
' Tom Allen, was run so outrageously fast
that many times the speed limit was left
f In the distance, but It made no difference,
i so anxious were the manipulators of the
j convention to carry things for the Bryan
crowd, that they cared little for anything
else and nearly forgot that Nebraska had
a democratic state administration headed
by Governor Morehead. Governor More
head's name was entirely left out of tho
resolutions, but a little four-line para
graph endorsed the state administration,
while nineteen lines were given to an en
' dorsement of Secretory of State Bryan.
President Wilson will havo to be satis
fied with a ten-line endorsement.
