Young Mullen, who is 26 years old,

The McKinley club is preparing for
a big ratification meeting to be held
at the Hotel Rome in the next few
weeks. It may be that some speaker
of national prominence will be pres
ent, although it is likely that just Ne
braska men will be asked to speak.
A novel feature of the affair will be
some original campaign songs, and,
especially, one dedicated to Mr.
Hughes by a quartet which is being
organized by Joe Marrow, bailiff in
the district court. It is the purpose
of the committee in charge to nave all
the candidates for federal, state and
county offices invited to the meeting,
which will be in the nature of a recep
tion, as well as a ratification for the
nominees of the party.
The McKinley club is preparing to
organize Hughes and Fairbanks clubs
throughout the city and state, working
in connection with the National Re
publican league, of which John Hays
Hammond is president.
It will be ot interest to Omaha peo
ple to know that Mr. Hammond, who
is now one of the most famous min
ing engineers in the world, started
in the business at the Omaha smelter
several years ago. Talking with Mr.
Byrne, president of the McKinley
club, at the national republican con
vention in Chicago a few weeks ago,
Mr. Hammond remarked this fact,
stating that he had a very warm spot
in his heart for Omaha. Mr. Ham
mond promised to try to arrange his
affair's so that he could speak here
before the McKinley club later in the
United HtotM OU Production.

marketed In the first half of 1916, was
greater than half of the total amount mar
keted throughout the whole of last year.
