Hastings, Neb., Sept. 22. (Special.)
Congressman James A. Frear of
Wisconsin delivered an address here
last night, in which he disculsed the
financial record of the Wilson admin
istration and the sectional manner in
which money so extravagantly appro
priated had been expended. Mr.
Frear said in part:
"One of the strongest indictments
made in 1912 by the democratic plat
form reads:
We - denounce the proflleate will of
money' wrung from the people by oppressive
taxation through the avian appropriations
'A republican congresses.
"This charge was made in a plat
form drawn by Mr. Bryan and his
associates. In the wild riot of waste
and extravagance which has accom-
Sanied the Wilson administration we
ve been confronted with the slogan,
'He kept ns out of war.' Every think
ing man knows we have been kept
out of war, not through the adminis
tration, but in spite of its blunders.
The ery is raised primarily to prevent
inquiry into broken platform prom
ises. Let us stick a pm into one hole
at a time and see what becomes of
democratic promises and policies.
What is the record of 'profligate
waster .
Seven Hundred Millions More.
Lea vim out Panama canal expend!'
tares in both' administrations, the
total appropriations during the Taft
administration, from 1910 to 1913, in
clusive, in round numbers, reached
$3,800,000,000. During President Wil
son's term thus far the total appro
priations reach over $4,846,000,000, or
more than $1,000,000,000 increase for
the four-year Taft period. Deducting
extra defense items of about $340,000,
000 leaves a net increase of $700,000.
000 m appropriations thus far made
or 18 per cent excess apart from the
extra defense bills. I will not discuss
figures to show how and where the
waste occurred beyond saying that
over 7.000 new olaces were created
with annual salaries of about $7,700.-
000. That is a net increase; $9,756,000
more was salary increase to care lor
8,000 more positions where huge sums
were provmea ana a aiscrctiun icu
with heads of departments.
; Money Spent In Sooth.
"A Iarsre oart of these appropria
tiona are given to the south. That is
natural, because the democratic ma
jority comes from the .south and
every important committee chairman
ship, -some thirty-two in number,
comes from the south, all excepting
Fitzgerald of New York, whereas
thirteen southern states only con
tributed $4,856,000 toward the income
tax revenues of 1915, while thirteen
northern states contributed $65,308,
000 during the same period, or four
teen times as much. Is it not time
for the people of this country to in
quire why these heavy tax burdens
are being levied and where they are
distributed? Nearly half of the $43,
000,000 for rivers and harbors, in
round numbers, goes to the south, al
though all the actual waterway com
merce of the entire south does not
amount to one-half of the commerce
of the Duluth-Superior harbor. Is it
not time to ask an accounting from
those who control congress and four
years ago denounced republican ex
travagance?" ,

National Committeeman Howell is
corresponding with Raymond Robins,
who may be in Nebraska, September
29 arid 30, for a brief speaking tour,
"It is very evident that Senator
, Hitchcock is now trying to hang to
the Wilson coat-tail. His speeches
plainly indicate his present methods,"
stated a prominent democrat, who
doea not wish his name used at this
time,' for business reasons. He is
one of Omaha's well-known lawyers
and a politician of statewide acquaint
ance. He says he can read the senator
like a book. "The senator fought the
administration on the tariff bill and
the bank reserve bill and now is fol

Wilson Sentiment
In Boone County
' Is On the Wayne
Albion, Sept. 22. (Special.)
While Boone county has for several
months sppeared to show a leaning
toward President Wilson, those ac
quainted with the situation believe
that a change has begun to take place
and that from now on Hughes will
be found getting the better of the
. Normally Boone is republican by
a small majority and republicans
hope to see the whole ticket climb
to the top by the time the votes are
counted. '
One of the leading republicans of
the county said today that he could
see that the people were beginning
to take more of an interest in the
compaign and that the argument of
democrats to let well enough alone,
was not meeting with so much fa-,
vor as it did a week or two ago.
"People are beginning to talk and
discuss the situation and when they
begin to do that," said he, "it aim
ply means votes for Hughes, for as
soon as the campaign becomes one
of education and the people under
stand the real situation, they will find
that all of this talk about Wilson
keeping us out of war, ending the
strike and giving us good times won t
stand up m a fair and honest dis
cussion of the question."
John L. Kennedy is very strong in
Boone county, as is also Judge Sut
ton. One of the leading democrats
of the. county, one closely in touch
with the situation, said today that
Kennedy would carry the county by
a big majority and that Sutton would
not be far behind him. This appears
to be, the general sentiment among
democrats and republicans alike.

Railroad Surgeon Condemns
Meddlesome Laymen Who
Attempt to Give Help.
'Meddlesome laymen," in the sense
of administering first aid to the injured,-
came in for a scoring at the
Friday morning's session of the Medi
cal Society of the Missouri Valley,
which is holding its twenty-ninth an
nual meeting in Omaha.
Dr. C. W. ffopkins of Chicago, chief
surgeon of the Northwestern railroad,
in his paper on "First Aid to the In

which, he averred, more often resulted
in a mess that proved a handicap to
the doctors.
According to Dr. Hopkins' state
ments, it is well understood by sur
geons that the character of the first
treatment given an injured person fre
quently determines the final result.
Too Often Ignorant
It is all well and good, he explained,
when a layman really knows what to
do, contending however, that the av
erage person is vastly ignorant when
it comes to taking the initial respon
sibility when an accident occurs.
Following the close of the morning
session the society elected officers
for the ensuing year, Dr. C. R. Wood
son of St. Joseph succeeding Dr.
John P. Lord of Omaha as president.
The other officers chosen were Dr.
E. W. Rowe of Lincoln, first vice
president; Dr. C. B. Hickenlooper of
Winterset, la., second vice president;
Dr. O. C. Gebhart of St. Joseph,
treasurer; Dr. Charles Wood Fassett
of Kansas City, secretary. Dr. Geb
hart and Dr. Fassett were re-elected.
Keokuk Gets Meeting.
Keokuk, la., was named as the
next meeting place.
Dr. F. B. Dorsey of Keokuk was
elected chairman of the committee
on arrangements for the 1917 con
vention. At the closing day's sessions pa
pers were read and discussions led
by the following: Dr. Robert H.
Babcock of Chicago and Dr. A. D.
