Governor Calls On Nebraskans
to Be Thankful for Prosperity
(From a Staff Correspondent)
LINCOLN. Nov. 11 Speclal.-Oov-
rnor Morehead has Issued the follow
ing Thanksgiving proclamation:
"'In a government of a free and Inde
pendent people, prosperous by 'reason of
their devotion to their dally toil, blessed
beyond measure by the outpouring of
the gifts of Ood,- It is most appropriate
that a day of general Thanksgiving be
observed. In setting apart a day for
this purpose, I. deem it expedient to
mention some very important facts for
which the people of thla state have rea
son to be gTateful.
"This is an annual custom and I feel
that no day- of the year . should be more
conscientiously and sincerely observed.
Everyone should gtve thanks to the
Great Creator of all things for the bless
ings of health, prosperity and peace with
all nations of the earth.
"We have reached a period in the
history of our nation with tha education
and Intelligence of our people, that we
are fully qualified to pass In an lm pas
sionate way upon all questions pertain
ing to the good' of our country. The
people are no longer carried away by
sensational leaders, but think calmly and
sanely before they act. While Europe Is
being depopulated of her , young men
in the most destructive war In the his
tory of the world, our people have shown
a conservative attitude in helping the
men who serve- them in a public way
to keep out of foreign complications
and to adjust our differences without
resort to force.
"The people of Nebraska have many
reasons to congratulate themselves on
the bountiful crop of 1915. The Industrial
conditions of the state are splendid, and
the state has no financial obligations un
paid; we have nearly 110,000,000 of good
securities in our state treasury, drawing
6 per cent Interest, bringing an annual
Income ef some $500,000 Into our public
schools and educating our children and
qualifying them for cltlsenahlp; guaran
teeing to the state the administration of
our public affairs In an Intelligent way
as it will- be governed by an intelligent
"As chairman of the banking board
I can report a - splendid condition of
nearly gno state banks, with a deposit of
more than J109,o(l0,ooo. and but a very few
failures, and these of a small amount
within the past fifteen yearn, a record
which la not equaled by any stats In
the union. The condition of tha banks
is a barometer to the real industrial con
dition of the country.
"Also as chairman of tha board of edu
cational lands and funds I can report an
Increased value of the many acres of
school lands, snd msny new substantial
school buildings in moat all the counties
of the state.
"With the state Institutions in splendid
financial condllon and in control of
superintendents who are ever mindful of
the great responsibility to the unfortu
nata people under their charge, the
united efforts of all the people to raise
the moral standard and to better eondl
tiona, I feel that of all the years none
have been more prosperous or more de
serting of united thanka of all tha people
"Therefore, I ask the people of , our
great and beloved state to stop on the
day designated, and realizing their good
fortune in being citizens of such a noble
country and auch a splendid state, to
remove hate and Jealousy from their
hearts and give thanks to tha Creator
for these blessings.
"In accordance with the proclamation
of the president of the United States, a
custom long established and by the
power vested in me, I set apart tha SRth
day of November aa Thanksgiving day.
MARY SHAW VOICES
Declares Equal Suffrage "Inevit
able as Life," in Address to
UHDERSTAITDnrO IS ON THE WAY
Mary Shaw, who will be at the
Orpheuni next week, voiced the
spirit of the wolf an suffrage move
ment In an address last evening in
the city half on "Sisterhood of
Women," before an audience of
Omaha women and a few men.
The accomplishments; of the act
ress in voice and gesture were added
to the understanding which the act
ress must hare of men and women
and Miss Shaw's address was charm
ing, as well as convincing.
The success of. the suffrage move
ment she said, is "as inevitable as
Humorously aha described . her own
girlhood in Boston.; "Both my- father
and mother were suffragists and at - a
time when it waa not at all respectable
to be a suffragist Besides they wens
Unitarians and at a. vary , early aga I
came to feel that there was something
Tery disreputable about my family."
Decides to -Be . Martyr.
Km described her growing convictions
and then tha time when she ' began to
fear that aha 'might not be attractive to
men If It became known that ana be
lieved in women voting. Next came a
determination 'to be a martyr and die
an old maid for the cause, if necessary.
"When I. tell you that. I bad been
married twice at 88," aha said, "you will
sea that , my martyrdom waa not neces
sary and today It la a rather striking
fact that I can hatdly find an old maid
among tha suffragists."
Tha history of women, she declared, la
la tha drama, man-made though It la.
Doing back to tha ' Greek . drama, she
told the story of Jason's wife, Medea,
who, stirred up by his demand that aha
go away aud thus leave him free to
marry tha klng'a daughter,' called the
women of Corinth together to pour out
tha story of her wrongs, as related in tha
Snffraare Before Christ.
"And Mrs. Medea J aeon. COO years be
fore Christ, talking to . those women of
Corinth, . voiced sentiments that Mrs.
Pankhurst would never dream of utter
ing," aha said.
Tha present movement for suffrage and
a broader lire among women, ana de
clared, la nothing sudden.
'We asa merely, giving "voice . to tha
longings of generations of silent women,"
she declared. "Our longings and desires
are what they made thcin. Our grand
mothers were silent because the time waa
not yet coma."
Her eulogy of woman, "tha divinely
appointed conserver of tha race through
the axes," waa sublime. It was spoken
with . that fascinating mystery of tha
woman wlto knows the love of husband
and child, admires man and has full
knowledge and at the same time loving
tolerance for his faults and weakness;
tha woman also who knows the weak
nesses of her own sex and tha mighty
strength of that sex.
One of the great fruits of the woman
movement, she declared, is thst women
are beginning to understand each other
and that the time is inevitably coming
when women and men will understand
each other with that perfect undestandlng
with which they will go on hand in hand,
dreaming dreams together and accomp
lishing vlslona together.

speaker, call Ml attention to the fact that

McCarthy roomed at 520 North Twenty-

cording to a book which gave the food

His principal fare consisted of figs, nuts,
a bottle of milk and bread. That thla
diet by no means weakened htm la evi

emergency squad had scoured tha neigh

his positive Identification by the members
of the household. 1
The man arrested gave his name as
Otis Singleton, said he lived at the Aetna
hotel, and had been a cook at the Hen
shew hotel for the last three months.
Ha was charged with being a suspicious
character. Aa he appeared to be intoxi

the house, he probably will not be prose

Steward Richard O'Brien of the hotel
aald he had discharged Singleton earlier
In the day because ha had reported for
work while under the influence of liquor.
