BURKETT OUT FOR
Former Congressman and Senator
of Lincoln Announces He Will
Enter Name in Race.
WEST SHOULD BE RECOGNIZED
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Jan. 15. (Special.)
After hesitating whether to run for
president or for senator, ex-Senator
E. J. Burkett of Lincoln will
file as a candidate for the vice presi
dency. This is the announcement
made by him this afternoon to news
paper representatives called to his
office to hear of his decision.
Senator Burkett says he will make
a campaign for support in the west,
which, though it has for years
elected solid delegations for repub
lican presidents, has never been
recognized on a national republican
Senator Burkett served In the Nebraska
legislature and then was elected to con-
cress from the First distrlat. Re-elected
three times congressman, he reslarned the
last term when elected by the Nebraska. I
legislature to the United States senate,
from which he retired after one term.
Following is l.ls announcement, as pre
pared, for .he press, over his name:.
"To the Poople of Nebraska: 1 am
profoundly Impressed with the expres
sions of confidence and esteem from my
fellow citizens of this and other states,
and am particularly, grateful to the peo
ple., of-Nebraska for. their generosity, .to
me during the twenty years since I en
tered public life, and for their renewed
and continued expressions of layalty and
confidence at this time. After consid
erable reflection, I have decided to yield
to the. entreaties of my friend and
authorise my name to be used as a can
didate for vice president of the United
States. The near approach of the date
of our Nebraska primaries seems to re
quire that I make this announcement at
"In doing so I am not unapprcclatlve
of the high honor, nor unmindful of the
great duties and responsibilities that at
tend the position; neither as I unmindful
of the claims of other men and other
portions of the country for recognition;
nor yet, indeed, have I overlooked the
disadvantages geographical and numer
ical that confront a candidate from any
western state in a national convention.
Indeed, I have not yielded to this call
because of any right or claims of my
own, nor from personal ambition alone;
nor because the way seemed easy or the
burdens light; but rather because it has
seemed to those who have Importuned
me to become a candidate that my twelve
years of service In the American con
gress, six years of which were spent in

Mrs, Doane Reproaches Ornahans
for Giving Shoes with the Soles Out
"l don't think it is fair to send us old
shoes with the soles nearly off, under
wear with holes large enough for a cow
to walk through, or other garments with
trimmings and buttons all removed," said
Secretary Iioane of the Associated Chari
ties. She said this in all kindness and
yet with earnestness.
"While we appreciate the good inten
tions of those who send us bundles of
shoes and clothing, yet It would surprise
jou to know how many of these articles
are pra'ttally worthless, .lust because

The Injured men and one body were

three bodies far down In the craft, could
not be reached until the gas had been
blown out by compressed air. Soon after
the explosion several naval officers led
a rescue-"party Into jjUe.'dry.JJock, but

have escaped Injury.
What caused the explosion has not
been definitely decided. Rear Admiral

California family, spent the day In Jail
at Kedwood City, thirty miles south of
here, serving sentence for not having
dimmed the lights on his automobile when
pafslng through that municipality.
George Seely, Justice of the peace, in
imposing sentence, said that a money
fine would be absurd and quoted Brreck
els as saying he would not pay one with
out fighting It in the court. He made
the sentence two days In Jail.
Kpreckels claimed that he had dimmed
his lamps with tobacco juice and that a
policeman in San Franciaco had told him
this would be satisfactory.
"That policeman was wrong, wasn't
he?" demanded Spreckels of his secre
tary after receiving sentence.
"He was," replied the secretary and
went out to see about meals.
"I am Just a plain man and want to
observe the law," preckela said. "This
law, however, should be amended so that
a man automatically could dim his lights
when necesary and turn them on full

Quest , of .Senator Stone, Secretary Lan
sing today agreed to keep the senate con

Mexican developments, and also to hasten
preparation of Information regarding the
Carranza government. In answer to Sen
ator Kail's resolution.
Senator Stone told Secretary Tensing the

desired to keep In close touch with Mex
ican developments. He called attention
to criticisms lately made In the senate.
Intimating that Mexican affairs had been
clothed with secrecy.
"I also urged upon the secretary the
Importance of the United States having
a diplomatic representative attached to
the Carranza government in this crisis,"
said Senator Htone, "and assured him
that we could do nothing toward con
firmation of Henry P. Fletcher, the pres
ident's nominee for ambassador to the de
facto government, until the president re
plied to Senator Fall's resolution. The

"Republican senators will not consider
the Fletcher nomination until the presi
dent's answer has been received. One or
two senstors have Indicated that they
would not vote to send an ambassador
to Carranza at ell." Senator Fall says he
will never vote to confirm the nomination
because he regards Carransa as an unfit
man to head the de facte government.
Senator. Borah has Intimated that he will
oppose confirmation for the reason that
he regards the Carranza government as
"L.i1'. a majority of the semtorp, I think,
agree with me that it Is of the utmost
Importance for this government to be
properly represented by recognized diplo
matic agent, and I think that Mr. Fletcher
can be confirmed after the president ex
plains the recognition of Carranza and
describes the de lacto government."
