Candidates for Senate and
House Address Mass Meet
ing in Pawnee County.
Lewiston, Neb., Sept. 27. (Spe
cial.) After pointing out the great
number of instances in which the dem
ocratic party had abandoned and
failed to live up to platform prom
lies, and after describing the manner
in which President Wilson had failed
to be governed by the promises of
the platform on which he was elected,
John L. Kennedy of Omaha, repub
lican candidate for United States sen
ator, stated at a mass meetine here to
day: "The platform of he democratic
party is like the platform of a street
car. It is used to get in on, but not to
tand on." Mr. Kennedy and Con
gressman C. F. Reavis of Falls City
visited here today in company with
two automobile loads. of candidates for
county offices. E. H. Gifford of this
place headed the reception committee
here and introduced the speakers, and
John Herold, prominent farmer and
citizen, entertained the visitors at
noonday dinner at his farm home.
Mr. Kennedy asked the farmers of
Nebraska to insist on the dignity of
the American constitution, even at the
hands of the president of the United
States, and he pointed out that during
the last three years the democratic
president had repeatedly usurped the
function of the legislative branch. He
added that if this was tolerated there
was nothing to prevent the usurpa
tion of (he judicial branch also and the
consequent violation of the underlying
principles of the American govern
ment. Mr. Kennedy's good-natured
and humorous treatment of his subject
won to him an enthusiastic audience.
Reavis Charms Audience.
Congressman Reavis charmed his
audience with a telling address
which was for the most part not po
litical. However, in closing he said
that the Underwood tariff legislation
of the democratic congress and the
rivers and harbors bill were the most
sectional bits of legislation ever en
acted. He pointed outjhat the Under
produces of the states trom whicn
President Wilson and Mr. Under
wood came, and left unprotected the
products of the Nebraska farmer and
the states of the north. He referred
to the fact that all of southeastern
Nebraska had been benefited by drain
age districts which the Nebraska
farmers built ut their own expense
and that the democratic congress had
by its recent legislation appropriated
$9,000,000 to do the same thing for the
south. Mr. Reavis said that he had
alwavs voted against this sort of legis
lation and that Senator Hitchcock anH
his opponent, ex-Congressman Ma
guire, had always voted for it. Mr.
Maguire, he said, had stated that he
would obey President Wilson. As for
himself, Mr. Reavis said that he would
not." He said that in England they
stood by the king, and in Russia they
stood by the czar, but that in America
the sovereign power is the people of
the United States, and that he would
stand only by them and be governed
by their needs. He added that, if he
chose, it would be hard to stand by
President Wilson, as President Wil
son would not stand still. He referred
to the vacillating policy of this ad
ministration in all important matters.
Adam McMullen of Wymore, candi
date for state senator, also spoke on
matters of interest in state and county
folitics. His speech was well received.

Small Gathering of - Lincoln
Bourbons Hears Displeas
ing Talk by Texan.
From a 8tatf Correnpondsnt)
Lincoln, Sept. 27. (Special.) The
first democratic gun in the national
campaign failed to arouse much at
tention in Lincoln last night, when
Congressman Rufus Hardy of Texas
addressed the voters at the city au
ditorium. A sparse hundred in the au
dience could not relieve the barren
ness of the big hall nor pump up
much enthusiasm for the speaker s re
marks. Democrats, who had expected a
strong eulogy of President Wilson
were strongly disappointed. The
democrats were sorely tried by the
lukewarm expressions of the Texas
congressman, who devoted more at
tention to singing the praises of W.
J. Bryan than he did to telling of the
work of Woodrow Wilson. The au
dience of Lincoln democrats had not
come to be told of Bryan's services
to humanity.
Hardy said Bryan's place was safe
in history he did not see fit to as
sure his audience that Wilson had
such a certain hold on a place in the
hall of fame.
Beach in North Nebraska.
Chairman Beach of the republican
state committee is holding two dis
trict meetings at Norfolk and Emer
son with county workers. Chairman
Beach is spending most of his time
out in the state looking after organi
zation matters just now while Secre
tary Beebe is doing the heavy act
at campaign headquarters.
A large amount of literature cover
ing the administration's record for
efficiency and economy is being sent
out now.
Fro; - reports reaching the republi
can headquarters, it appears
that Robert W. Devoe, candidate on
the republican ticket for attorney
general, is doing much good for re
publicanism in Nebraska.
One of his best meetings in his
whirlwind campaign of the state was
at Geneva, Tuesday night, when he
spoke at the court house to a large
number of Fillmore county citizens.
Devoe talked law enforcement from
the standpoint of the attorney gen
eral and from reports coming in from
Geneva he made a decided hit. Mr.
Devoe will spend all of the time un
til the campaign closes in an automo
bile tour of the state.
Telephone Controversy
Is Settled by Commission
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Sept. 27. (Special.) At a
telephone and power company con
ference today before the Railway
commission, the Gibbon Telephone
company and the Kearney Power
company controversy was settled by
the agreement of the latter to pay
several hundred dollars to assist in
the canvass of phone patrons to se
cure their consent to the change in
service necessary. The Gibbon com
pany had asked the commission to
force the Kearney company to pay
all the expense of the changes in its
wires made necessary by stringing
transmission lines, but this was with
drawn. The settlement does not af
fect other cases of dispute between
telephone and telegraph companies.

It may be he hasn't cared for corn
