for diplomats and politicians In war
scandals, and to have accomplished

they have striven for years, In an
address by C. O. Amnions, before
the thirty-fifth annual convention of

He appeared as the fraternal dele

"American people have been lied to,"
he said, "when told that British work
men were in a debauch of drunkenness
and were responsible for delays In the
delivery of munitions.

"Labor unionism In Great Britain has
increased the pay of the fighting men In

war were to be fought successfully.
"The war accomplished at a stroke of

for decades nationalisation of railways,
of munition factories and the practice of
medicine. None of these shall ever go
back into private hands. Labor will fight
to save them."

"When peace comes finally," he said,
"labor will demand a share In the making
of the terms." American laboring men,
he suggested, should "hammer out the
final peace plan."
"The laboring people of Europe," he
added, "will demand a seat beside the
diplomats and politicians to sign the
peace pact, and they will see that that
pact shall be such a one that never again
shall laboring people be sundered.
"British workmen have no quarrel with
the workmen of other countries. While
temporarily the international union has

SEES YICTORY FOR
THE G. 0. P. IN 1916
Theodore E. Buxton of Ohio Gives
His Views on the Political Sit
uation of thr Country.
HOME POLICIES AS THE ISSUE
"The conditions are very favorable
for a national republican victory In
1916," skid ez-Unlted States Senator
Theodore E. Burton of Ohio, who Is
himself regarded as one of the strong
possibilities for the republican nom
ination for president
Going Into the signs, which he
looks to for Indication of a return of
sentiment for a republican adminis
tration, the senator pointed to recent
elections throughout the east, and in
his own state, where national issues
vere largely dragged into municipal
elections, and where the republican
candidates were very largely elected
handsome pluralities,' -"President
Wilson should at this time
be at the Ttrjr height of his popularity,
and let at-th-height of-Ma popularity,
he said, "and in spite of this we have
these republican majorities In the vari
ous elections and even old rock-ribbed
democratic Kentucky went democratic, as
I understand it, by a remarkably small
Goes In on at Spilt.
"Then, too. It must be remembered that
President WUson went Into office a
minority candidate by virtue of the split
in the republican party, which Is rapidly
Asked If he believed the party would
be united for the 1916 election, the sena
tor said, "I believe It will. There Is a
disposition everywhere to g-et together.
I feel this: that the republican platform
of 1916 should be a progressive plat
form. It should be progressive In the
matter of the tat iff. I am tired of hear
ing the two extremes of the tariff fight.
There has been a disposition on the
Part of those who wanted high tariff
to demand it higher than was necessary.
There has been a disposition on the
other side . to go to the other extreme.
Personally, of course, I am a very strong
advocate of a permanent tariff commis
sion. Certainly It Is a matter that should
be looked Into by a body of experts
that would be Impartial.
Does Not Affect Price.
"i am more and more of the opinion
that a high or low tariff makes little
actual difference anyway in the price of
commodities we buy. If the right laws
for the handling of monopolies could be
arrived at, the tariff would not make so
much difference in the matter of prices
Senator Burton approved of President
Wilson's European policy, but disap
proves of his Mexican polloy. "The presi
dent has done In the European situation,"
he said, "Just what such a president as
Mr. Taft would have done: acted cau
tiously and endeavored to keep out of
trouble where possible. The dlssatUfac
tipn with Wilson will not be so much with
his foreign polity as with his domestic
Burton Urges This
"Tho Tear 1915 and Its Flotation to
business Conditions," was the subject of
ftnutor Burton's talk before a crowded
house at the Commercial club.' "There
Is danger of a cranio in the ideals of
mankind as a result of this war," he said
"After this war there will surely be an
era of mllitarlmn or an era of peace. Let
us hope it will be the latter, but In the
meantime let us prepare for exigencies.
"Long continuance of the war means
the economic ruin of the nations Involved.
It is natural that at this time the nations
should begin to reflect on this, and even
now we are hearing some rumors that
preliminary peace negotiations are in
progress. It will take tent-flve or
thirty years to repair the dau.atfe done
"As for America, ours will be a dimin
ished market at the close of the war.
Europe 1U be Impoverished and will not
want to spend Its money for our goods.
They will demand a 'balance of trade in
their favor. They mill be fiercer com
petitors than ever before."

The senator then urged that the Amer
ican business man extend his business in
(south America and all over the world
more aggressively than ever before. He
pointed out that we have been taking

WEATHER MAN'S GUESS CORRECT!

along came snow and high wind In
addition to the variety of weather
that was predicted.
Yesterday rain was pretty general
over a large portion of the state. In
the afternoon , a change to colder
came and In the southern portion of
the state there was snow. Fairbury
reported thevheaviest fall of snow,
but It was not heavy enough to work
any Inconvenience as it melted about
as rapidly as It fell.
During the evening, while in the imme
diate vicinity of Omaha it was reason
ably calm, at Bennington, some ten miles
away, and to the west there was a ter
rific straight wind, scattering haystacks
and outhouses. Other than this no dam
age was reported.
At Blair, Tekamah and soma of the
towns to the north and west, a high wind
during the early evening interrupted tele
graph and telephone service. The wind
was of the straight variety and conse
quently did little damage.
Heavy rain was reported and early In
the evening there was a rapid and decided
drop in the temperature.
During the evening Waterloo reported
a torrential rain, accompanied by a very
heavy wind. Whether or not any damage
was done could not be ascertained as the
wires went down, cutting off communica

more to Canada with Its 8,000,000 people
thitn we did to Germany with Its CO.O),000.
"We have taken, what came easy," he
ssld. "We must now go to South Amer

now, and is sure to continue after the,

enjoy now there should bo a new birth
of patriotism, and patriotism does not
mean merely wearln the uniform. It
means that we sh uld te a largo factor
In the building of humanity. A iactry
Is not Judged merely by Its output today.
It Is Judged also by the conditions under
which it works Its employes. The wrecks

RAISE IN LUMBER
Commerce Commission Acts on
Tariffs on Carload Lots from
West to Middle States.
HELD UP UNTIL MARCH TENTH
WASHINGTON, Nov. 10. Tariffs
of transcontinental railroads propos
ing an Increase in carload rates on
lumber and forest products from Eas
ton and other points west of Spokane,
In the state of Washington, to desti
nations In North and South Dakota,
Nebraska and other states, were sus
pended today by tho Interstate Com
merce commission until March 10.
The increase ranged from 1 to 6
cents per 100 pounds.
It Is understood, however, that the de
cision was due to the fact that Increases
proposed by the same roads on other com
modities have not been acted upon and
the fact that an Investigation la ta be
undertaken of live stock rates.
Alice Tea Millions.
The netltlon was filed several weeks
ago, but final action on it was deferred
until all members of the commission were
The western roads In their original case
asked for increases which they swld
would mean added revenues of about
$10,000,000 a year, but the commission
granted such increases only as it cal
culated would add about $1,5W,000 per year.
In the petition for a rehearing the prin
cipal reason given was that the commis
sion had failed to consider the need of
additional revenue. A reopening and re
hearing was asked In respect to the rates
on live stock, fresh meats, packing house
products and grain and grain products.
In keeping with Its order for an in
vestigation of rates on live stock and
similar commodities of tho same gen
eral character the commission also denied
petitions for a rehearing on rates on these
products from points in Colorado, South
Dakota and other nearby states to
Omaha and on the rates on the same
products in peddler cars In southwestern
. Briefs and arguments before the com
mission Indicate that the added revenue
through the increases asked on fresh
meats, packing house products and live
stock would have been about $3,000,000.
The lnvestlxatlon now undertaken may
result In giving the carriers at least a
portion of that sum.
