LINCOLN. Neb., Dec. 12. (Special.)
That Ex-Oovernor Chester H. Aldrlch
will be a candidate for the republican
nomination for the United Statei senate
was made a fact yesterday when Just be
fore Secretary of State Pool closed his of
fice for the day Kx-Oovernor Aldrlch
filed for a place on the primary ballot.
Governor Aldrich served In the memor
able state senate of 1907 and In 1910 was
elected Kovernor of the state, serving the
1911-12 term, but was defeated for a sec
ond term by the present governor.
In a statement filed With the secretary
of state Ex-Governor Aldrlch calls atten
tion to the fact that he signed the pres
ent Initiative and referdum act as gover
nor, which ives the people a chance to
vote upon the liquor question and while
being for a dry state If elected, will abide
by the vote of the people on the questlm.
For rotectlve Tariff.
He favors strongly a protective tariff
for American, Industries, charging that
the present democratic tariff favors the
south at the expense of the agricultural
states of the north. He does not believe
in militarism, but does not believe tlj's
government should drift along trusting to
good luck and the good will of other na
tions to keep us out of ti fjble.
He believes In a sufficient degree of
preparedness Which would place the
United States in a position to protect It
self If necessary. He believes in A mer
chant marine that will meet with, popular
He charges the present dcmocratlo na
tional administration with being the most
extravagent of any administration In the
history of the government and eays that
notwithstanding the democratic plat
form of the last campaign, denounced the
republican party for Its profligate waste
of the people's money, the present admin
istration has now already exceeded the
republican expenditures by over $200,000,
OuO per annum.

Relation of the motorcycle to religion
may seem a phrase rather far fetched,
but members of Parkvate Presbyterian
church do not think so. They are to re
ceive the first money for a new church
edifice, which they decided to build only
last week from the efforts of their pas
tor. Rev. R. V. Taylor, Just because

ings, the Influx of members Into the Park
vale organisation has been so steady and
the demands of the territory west and
southwest of Hanscom park, which the
church, now located at Thirty-first and
Oold streets, serves, have appeared so
Insistent that members decided the pres
ent structure Inadequate.
The ladles' Guild assumed a generous
share of the Indebtedness and the pastor
was prevailed upon to assist them In se
curing the nest egg out of which the
building fund Is to grow.
rr. Taylor, who has served In Ne
braska for over ten years at Te
kamah and Osceola, has traveled by
motorcvrle over the aailra northwest
during his vacations. There Is scarcely
a crossroads town he has not visited In
his 25,0110 miles of Journeylntts. He started
when one had to push the power wheel

HKSHL1 R, Neb.. Dec. 18. (Special Tel
egram.) The track was cleared of the
wreckage of Rock Island train No. 305 at
an early hour this morning. The bag
gage and express car and contents were
burned nothing being saved Tout a dog,
the registered mall and two express pack
arcs. There were but eight pamengers tn the
smoker when the accident happened and
about fifteen in the chair car, an un
usually light list. There was no specie
on the train and the express and bag
gape was not so heavy aa usual.
The officers point to the fact that the
ruling will hit the state officers Just as
It does the clerks.
This Is along about the same line as
the act of a certain democratic state of
ficial who It is rumored at the state house
docked his stenographer one-half day's
pay because when she went home to
spend Thanksgiving she failed to return
until noon the next day. There Is no
record to show that he docked himself
for the days he has been absent from his
offlca on his own pleasure bent.

Thingt That Proipmctlp

The man who contracts to build
without a definite knowledge
of Final Cost, is a speculator
If you hive $50,000 or $3,000 to put into the construction of a
building and are figuring your returns on either of these amounts
you should know positively that the final cost sheet will
show $50,000 or $3,000, and not $50,1 OQ'or $3,500.
Such advice would sound Strang wer It not gen
erally known, by those who have had experience, that
a large percentage of buildings do greatly exceed the
estimated construction ooat.
In a recent lasue of a prominent Hotel mag&slnb
there appeared an article on guaranteeing Construc

"A comprehensive inwatlKation of Com

rent of them exceeded, tn final cost, the
original estimate, of the architect.
