Beatrice, Neb, Sept. 28. (Special.)
'Today was republican day at the
Gage county (air and a galaxy of can
didates were here taking part in the
itpeech making and meeting the vot
'era. John L. Kennedy of Omaha, re
publican candidate for United States
.senator, was the principal speaker of
the day, and his speech bristled with
telling epigram and burned with re
publican fervor.
, In. the midst of his speech, which
.dealt principally with the Underwood
-tariff of the democratic admtnstra
tion and its sectional application so
ras to protect the products of the
southern (arms, but not the products
pi- Nebraska, he was interrupted by
C P. Hall, prominent- local demo
erat, who as judge of the races
.wished to have the races proceed on
time. Mr. Kennedy preferred to stop
at this time and his crowd cheered
and called, "Go on I Go on I We don't
care about the horse races." -
Mr. Kennedy's speech dealt with
republican issues and his mention of
the name of Charles E. Hughes
brought out repeated applause. Mr.
" Kennedy- was introduced by Peter
Jansen of this city. Another demo
cratic interruption brought forth
snappy retort from Mr. Kennedy
which was much enjoyed by the au
dience. He left here this afternoon
for North Platte, where he will ad
. dress an afternoon meeting tomor
row. ' - '-'' -
Adam-. McMullen of Wymore, re
publican candidate for state senator,

speakers.) Among them were Con
gressman Charles Sloan of Geneva,
and Judge A. L. Sutton of Omaha,

The themeof the day was Charles
. Hughes, and the need of his lead
ership to redeem the United States
from sectional government.
Robert W. Devoe, republican can
didate for attorney general, spoke on
the enforcement of law and the im
portance of the attorney general's of

Hollweg Declares '
Italy Forced to Go
To War by British
Berlin, Sept. 28.-(By Wireless to
Sayville.) The Reichstag convened
today and the imperial chancellor,
Dr. von Bethmann-Hollweg, delivered
his eagerly-awaited speech. He began
by outlining the events which led up
to the Italian and Roumanian decla
rations of war. He recalled that the
German ambassador had left Rome
after Italy's declaration . of war
against , Austria-Hungary and 'that
Germany had announced that the
Italians would find German troops
fighting with their Austrian comrades
on the Italian frontier. He continued:
"Thus a state of war practically ex
isted, but a formal declaration of war
did not come tilt later. Italy appar
ently was afraid of the consequences
which it would suffer after the war in
regard to its economic relations
with us. ' ----- .
"On the other hand, i Rome pre
ferred to lay the blame for the decla
ration at our door. But for ut there
waa no reason to play Italy's game.
Oar tactics were justified by the un
interrupted efforts of the entente
powers to cause Italy to declare war.
"For more than a year the Italian
government ' resisted. Finally, the
measures . which .England employs
with equal ruthlessness against neu
trals and its allies were too strong.
Italy's welfare depends upon English
coal and English money. Finally it
had to give in. , ;
"The decision : certainly ' was
brought about by Sritish coercion, al
though Italian hopes in regard to the
Balkans also exercised influence.
Italy, as Is known, desires Balkan
territories, which are within the
natural sphere of Greek interests. In
order not to be abandoned Italy
found It necessary to partake in the
expedition of General Sarrail, (the
allied commander at Saloniki), and
this caused an encounter between
Italian and German troops in Mace
donia." '

Key to the Situation The Bee
Want Ada,
BIG BANKERS FAVOR
MILITARY TRAINING
Vanderlip and Lynch Say Pre
paredness of All Kinds is
Economic Necessity.
BOOM IS ONLY TEMPORARY
Kansas City, Mo., Sept 28. Ad
vocacy of universal military, training
in this country and greater participa
tion in national, state and municipal
politics were urged here today by
speakers before the American Bank
ers association.
Military service for all young men
was declared ne:esary by James J.
Lynch of San Francisco, president of
the association, and Frank A. Van
derlip of Illinois. "Ills in politics
through which demagogues and ward
heelers' have gotten into city coun
cils, state .legislatures and even con
gress, are due to the negligence of
bankers and other business men, the
convention was told by Mayor
George H. Edwards of Kansas City.
Mr. Lynch stated preparedness
was necessary because we are to
day the most tempting prize under
tne Dlue canopy ot neaven.
Mr. Vanderlip deoiared it to be
tne surest assurance ot peace.
Vanderlio'a Addresa.
"If ever a people should pause, if
ever tney snout toon abroad and
profit by the experience of others,
should comprehend their national
dangers, in the light of the terrible
rcmici mat arc oeing enacica ue-
lore.tnetr eyes in other nations, it is
now and we are the people. i
In those words Frank A. Vanderlip
of New York warned his hearers
they should not take too easily the
present great wealth of this countrv
that "seems dangerously likely to
submerse us in our own orosneritv"
.Rather, he said, with an opportunity
sucn as no country ever had to lay
tne sure foundations ot a great fu
ture, we must not be "so intent unon
dividing the proceeds of present
prosperity inai we tail 10 safeguard
its permanence.'
Mr. Vanderlip. after aoeakine of
the war's cost in Europe and outlin
ing the financial status of this coun
try, declared: "In a word, I believe
the greatest need of the. day and a
need so fundamental as to make
other matters inconsequential in com
parison is the need of universal
military, industrial and economic pre-
pareaness.
Military Training Necessity.
He asked for training in military
service for all men, greater savings
by all classes and greater 'efficiency
in industrial pursuits.
i once thought vou could count
universal military service as an eco
nomic waste,' he said. "I feel con
fident, in the light of events of the
last two years, that it la not onlv a
military necessity of superlative im
portance, but that our national life
would draw a unity which could be
obtained in no other way."
Mr. Vanderlip scarcely touched nn.
on the banking business except to
ay that he believed the federal re
serve act embodies some sound fun
damental principles, fret working of
which,, however had been, entangled
and hampered in its inception by
political considerations and adminis
trative attitude. ,
i Committee on Laws Reports.
,; The - report of the committee on
federal legislation, read by Charles A.
Htnsch of Cincinnati, O., its chair
man, told of the enactment of laws
favorable to banking interests and
the defeat of measures designed to
embarrass bankers. - .

sual activity, the report declares, and
had a hand in accomplishing the fol
lowing things: : .-

The, committe was instrumental. It
is stated, in obtaining the elimina

from the rural credits act.
In connection with the naaaao nf

Little items About the
Progress of tha Campaign
It appears that the Jacksonian club
members reckoned without their host
when they elected I. J. Dunn chair
man of their insurgent county com
mittee to work for the "uplifting of
democracy hereabouts." Mr. Dunn
announces he will not serve as head
of such committee, and he added that
he was not consulted when the selec
tion was made by the Jacks. The
Jacks maintain that the county or
ganization, maintained and operated
by the Jims, does not represent' the
democracy of this county. The whole
situation was aired before the creden
tials committee of the state demo
crat!: convention at Hasings in July.
The Jims scored a victory on that oc
casion. But the thirteen members
of the Jacksonian club have not yet
oeen sootneo by the healing hand ot
time. Who wants to serve as chair
man- in the place of. Ig. Dunn?
Republican leader are suggesting
to the county committee the advisabil
ity of securing further meetings for
Henry J. Allen, who spoke last Mon
day evening before the state conven
tion ot Republican club at the Rome
hotel.

The democratic party haa not kept it
pledge to reduce the high cost of liv

candidate for vice president,
charged in an address here this after
noon. The speaker also touched
upon the tariff, the Mexico situation
and economic conditions in this coun
try at the termination of the Euro
pean war.
1 he republican oartv. said Mr.
Fairbanks, "has kept faith with the
American people since the davs of
Abraham Lincoln, when he consecrat
ed his mighty service to the cause of
human liberty. Ihe republican party
has pledged its faith over and over
again and not to this hour has its
pledge gone to public protest
"One of the most earnest nledires
of democracy was to reduce the high
cost of living. This i one of the
questions that always is of paramount
importance among people who earn
their bread in the sweat of their
faces. This pledge was not keot. Did
the democratic party make this pledge
knowing it could not, or would not
keep it? If so they have forfeited
public confidence. No party has any
claim to public support which reck
lessly makes pledges which it can
not or will not keep."

INFANTRY TO THE RESCUE
British Front in France, Sept. 27.
(Midnight Via London, Sept 28.)
In the lull which has occurred after
the great two days' battle, in which
five, villages and 5,000 prisoners were
taken by the allies, the correspond
ent of the Associated Press has had
an opportunity to glean many stories
from the participants in the struggle.
These stories were not only of cour
age and heroism, but of a humor and
paradox possible only in such com
plicated and remorseless warfare.
The most wonderful of all the tales
told was perhaps that of one of the
tanks, or new armored motor cars.
which started for Berlin on its own
account This monstrous land ship,
ambling and rumbling along, did not
wait on the infantry after the taking
of Guedecourt, but plodded over
shell holes and across lots looking
for its prey like some prehistoric
lizard. In course of time it found
a German trench, but as it engaged
the occupants with its machine guns
it ran out of gasoline.
German Swarm Over Tank.
When the Germans found this
strange creature, with its steel hide
impenetrable to bullets, stalled, cu
riosity and a desire for revenge was
a fillip to their- courage.
They went after it with the avidity
of prehistoric men stalking a wound
ed mammoth, whose bulk was fast in
one of the alleys of the cave dwell
ers. No such game was ever seen
On this western front marked as it
has been by all kinds of bizarre
fighting.
. According to the accounts given by
the British omcers with veracious so
lemnity, while the tank's machine gun
blazed right and left, some of the
Germans managed to creep along the
trenches under the fore legs and hind
legs of the crouching beast, lhen
they swarmed over it, looking for
an opening through which to strike
at its vitals. They fired their rifles
into joints and bombed it all over,
but to no more avail than burglars
trving to reach the inside of a battle
ship turret with a jimmy. All the
while the tank s machine guns kept
busy at the human targets in reach
while its crew, chosen -dare-devils,
concluded to stick until they starved
or the Germans found the proper can
opener to get them out.
Infantry to Rescue.
Finally the British infantry in the
rear, seeing the tank in distress, re
fused to wait on any general orders
that thev should remain at the ob
jective which they had gained. - They
were out to save that impounded
tank and with a cheer thev rushed the
Germans and - overwhelmed ! them.
When the crew heard the laughing
and shouting in English they opened
the door and called out? "We are all

ly and the beast, having taken a swal
low, ambled back into reserve amidst
wild cheering. It left behind 250 dead
Germans, according to its commander.

Another tank which did well in this
fight assisted in the taking of Thiep

Thiepval. The cellar is still there,

ing, bricks, stone and mortar in a
thick shell of pounded debris which
protected it from penetration by even
