Heavta Talks Tariff.
C. F. Reavla of Falls City was the
principal speaker at the meeting. He cap
tured the crowd at once with his eloquent
address. Ha 'covered in a short way the
workings of the preaent democratic tariff
law and explained how sadly It had failed
to bring about a reduction In the high
. coat of living.
:'The Underwood tariff' law Was not
created," aaid Mr. Reavls, "so much to
reduce tha tiigh cost of living as was
. to protect certain Industries and aroduc
: tlons of tha states from which the prssl
' dent and Mr. Underwood came. ThJ dam
Wcrata told us what free trade would do
for ua. but In creating the free list what
did they do? They put a tariff on eighty
production of .the state of New Jersey,
- eight on the production of tha state of
' .. Alabama, the home of Mr. Underwood.
The uma tariff bill puts on tha free list
;-tnty-alx of the most Important produc
tion of the ' state of Nebraska- Among
the Nebraska productions whloh are on
the free list are rya, oats, wool, eggs,
. meats, wheat, etc. In Alabama product
,. there I a protection on lice, tobacco,
peanuts, cotton fabric, ate.
' "The Increase an Importation for the
- Uwi- 'continued Mr. Reavi. "a torn
pared with tha same period under the old
law' is" potatoes, M9per cent; butter, (IS3
' per cent: sheep, 1.&4S per cent; meats, 1,877
per cent; corn. 4,210 per cent, and oats,
, 29.14C per cent."
. Mr. Reavls called attention to tha fact
that since the democratic tariff law had
I gone Into effect that fifty woolen mills
In New England alone had dosed, throat
ing out of employment 15.000 men. '
He said that If elected to cangrea h
; would do all in hi power to uphold Pres-
Ident Wilson in his policy to keep crepe
from the doors of American homes and
would stand back of him In his effort to
keep tha United flute from getting Jnto
trouble which ' would bring, death and
desolation to the (American fireside. :. .

K. B. Howell cloaed the meeting with a
hort address. He dJ not cover state is

what had happened since he spoke to

location. He gave a history of the egg
throwing episode In Omaha on the eve
.of th primary. and aaid that if he waa
elected governor ha would do hi duty as
executive of tha atata In cleaning up the
city. He laid all the blame for the egg

COnteet fnr 1 t rx r4nt.H4 - - v . . ' .
.M-vHuUh V4 yuouo ixi-
tructloa In Nebraska:
Tha liveliest campaign we have ever
known for a nomination of a atata super
intendent was tn the republican primaries
of Nebraska tht year. A. O. Thomas, the
: first and long time principal of the Kear-
. ney Normal school prior to last i ear. and
l'eputy btata Superintendent K. 1 Elliott,
, were tha candidate. Doth made whirl
wind campaigns and neither aeemed to
. lack for funds for any legitimate use.
We chanced to be In tha state the last
. two weeks of the campaign and we have
never eeea anything to compare with It.
No one can understand It who haa not
known the personalities tn education In
Nebraska during the last ten years. It
has been useless to warn anyone that he
was playing with fire. Ultimata con
'. sequence never aeemed to Interest them.
As to the outcome of the election, we
. . know nothing, of course, but tha primary
, contest was more vital aa a test of specl
' fic values than the state election, for tn
that party poliUoa will signify much, and
there waa no party politics In the prl
' tnarla. Mr. Thomaa won by above .UM
malortty. which Is beyond anything
dreamed of by. either side, aa we met
. them dally for two weeks Just prior to
the voting. There can be no Interpre
tation of the nomination that doea not
leave Mr. Thomaa a great gainer by tha
