Rail Commission Comes
To Deadlock With Reed
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Sept. 26. (Special.) The
railway commsision has asked Attor
ney General Reed tot prosecute the
Farmers' Co-Operative Elevator com
pany of Riverdale for failure to abide
by the state warehouse law although
Mr. Reed has pronounced the law un
constitutional and unenforceable. Mr.
Reed has indicated that he will not
prosecute, since he does not believe
that it can be done successfully.
The commission complains against
the elevator company on the grounds
that it is not submitting its monthly
Mr. Reed holds the law unconsti
tutional, because, in his opinion, a
grain elevator is not a common car

has authority only over common car
riers, according to the state constitu

Neville Speaks on Street;
No Hearers in His Hall
Bridgeport, Neb., Sept. 26. (Spcy
cial Telegram.) Keith Neville spoke
to a mere handful of people on the
streets this afternoon in behalf of his
campaign. The address was scheduled
to be held in the Miller opera house,
but owing to the fact that no hearers
put in their appearance, the speech
was delivered by Neville from his car
on the street. On the whole, theocca
sion was a fiasco.

I of Richardson and Tawnce counties
and the other counties in Nebraska
had been compelled to get the same
results by heavy special assessments
and charges against their lands. Con
gress, he said, could not be particular
ly generous to any one section and at
the same time be just to all. He as
serted that he had always voted
against such discriminating legislation
and that his opponent had always vot
ed for such legislation.
Both speakers remarked upon the
prosperity of today, but asserted that
it is nothing to brag about, as it is
built upon the graves of the best
young men in Europe and made pos
sible by the woes of a world. After
the war, with the present Underwood
tariff, they urged that the United
States would be inviting the countries
of the world to make the United
States their dumping ground, and that
then prosperity would not reign su
preme, as the present high prices were
due to 'the fact that all Europeans arc
now consumers and not producers, I
that the United States is exporting I
chiefly and because there is litt e im-;
porting. Only one thing will save the
United States from industrial disaster
after the war, thev said, and that is
the protective tariff for which the re
publican party has always stood.
Mr. Kennedy drew tie farmers to
him by .the declaration that he had
farmed in two countries and had an
eleven days' steerage passage in be
tween. Many of his hearers today have
enjoyed a similar experience.

WHY WOMEN .
To Lydia E. Pinkham Medi
Women who are well often ask "Are
the letters which the Lydia E. Pinkham
Medicine Co. are continually publishing,
genuine?" "Are they truthful?"
" Why do women write such letters? "
In answer we say that never have we
published a fictitious letter or name.
Never, knowingly, have we published
an untruthful letter, or one without tho
full and written consent of the woman
who wrote it
The reason that thousands of women
from all parts of the country write such
grateful letters to the Lydia E. Pink-
