DEM BUNCO GAME
Colorado Speaker Cites Figures
on Trade at Meeting at
COMPARISON TELLS STORY
Alliance, Neb., Sept 28. (Special.)
W. J. L. Crank of Colorado aroused
republican enthusiasm to the highest
pitch at the meeting here. He tore
the mask from the face of democracy
and showed from facts and figures,
he false pretense by which the demo
crats are trying to perpetuate their
grafting administration on the people.
Mr. Crank said: "Our democratic
friends are saying, 'Look at the won
derful prosperity all over our land,
due to the democratic party, ihey
are appealing. to the farmer for sup
port and citing the high prices he is
receiving as an evidence why he
should support the democratic ticket.
Of course they are not fooling one
man in 10,000, for we all know our
prosperity is the prosperity of blood
which is being shed on European bat
tie fields. Now, let lis be honest; for
no campaign not won upon honor
should be won at all. Let these tig'
ures tell the story:
The Sale of Wheat.
"Our sale of wheat to Europe dur
ing the first year ot the war compared
with the first year of the present tar-
ltt law, m time ot peace, increased
from $103,595,000 to $316,262,000, a
gain of 205 per cent. Our wheat is
used to teed the armies ot turope.
But what was wheat worth in this
country at the time of the breaking
out of the European war? To show
the effect of this war on our pros
perity, let us compare the year from
September, 1913, to September, 1914,
the year of peace, the first year of the
present Underwood tantt law. with
the year from September, 1914, to
September, 1915, the year of war, and
the second year of the present Under
wood tantt law. rrom this compart
son we can judge the cause of our
' Quantity of Breadstuffs.
' "During the year of peace we sold
m breadstutts to Europe $181.4B4.U0U
in the year of war we sold to Europe,
$567,607,000, a gain of 203 per cent.
"In the year of peace we sold to
Europe horses to the value of $3,177,-
UW; in the year of war we sold horses
to the value of $82,276,000. - In the
year of peace we sold mules to the
f value of $622,000; in the year of war
Ufa mU mi.lna a tt ..-.1.. f eiQfMl
000. We sold hay in the vearof peace
; to the value of $790,000; in the year of
Fiarures for Peace.
, "During the year of peace we sold
meats and dairv products to the value
of $138,736,000. During the year of
war we sold -the same products to
the value of $243,098,000. We sold
sugar to the value of $4,341,000 in
(he year of peace, and during theS
year ot war we sold sugar to the
value of $36,816,000.
'?5 "These figures might be carried out
to a greater length, showing the same
state of facts.
' "Why should hot the farmer he
prosperous? Not on account of the
democratic administration, but in
spite ot it. i

Markets After War
Wahoo, Neb., Sept. 28. (Special
Telegram.) Congressman Anderson
of the First District of Minnesota ad
dressed a well-packed house in the
district court room last evening, flay
ing the administration for its weak
Mexican policy arM citing facts and
reasons why Charles Evans Hughes
should be elected president next No
He said that labor in Europe would
be the cheapest thing in Europe after
the war and that Europe would dump
products made by this cheap labor on
the United States in competition with
American-made goods unless the re
publican party took hold of the gov
ernment and put on a tariff to protect
our own products.
America for Americans first, said
Mr. Anderson. Instead of enriching
Europe after the war, we must look
after our own country.
"I have divided the exports of this
country from 1913 to 1916 inclusive,
into two classes," -aid Mr. Anderson,
"and I want to show that this pros
perity that democrats claim i? due
to their management' is only a war
product prosperity. In 1913, thirty
six per cent of the exports were war
material and sixty-four per cent non
war material and in 1916, seventy
four per cent of our exports were
war material and thirty-six per cent
non-war material, a complete reversal
and still the democrats say that this
is a natural prosperity."

Wisconsin Congressman Will
Make Week's . Campaign
Tour of Nebraska.
REPUBLICANS FEEL GOOD
(From a Staff Correspondent.) .
Lincoln, Sept. 28. (Special.) Con
gressman I. L. Lenroot of Wisconsin,
one of the national republican lead
ers in legislative circles, is coming
to Nebraska for nearly a week of
campaigning in behalf of republican
national and congressional candidates.
Congressman Lenroot will be here
from October 9 to 14, inclusive. He
is a forceful speaker and should prove
a big asset to the republican state
committee in the campaign. Arrange
ments are now being made by Jess
Craig, in charge of the speakers' bu
reau in this state, for Mr. Lenroot's
He will address a night meeting at
Norfolk on Monday, October 9, at
Wayne on Tuesday, October1 10, and

The remainder of his speaking en
gagements will be announced later.
Sydney Anderson, congressman
from Minnesota, spoke at Wahoo last
night to a large audience. Reports
from the meeting indicate that An

cratic administration were especially
Devoe Making Hit.
Bob Devoe continues to arouse a
lot of republican enthusiasm, the
state committee reported. Devoe
spoke at Hebron last night and the
hall was packed. Writing to the state
committee, a Hebron citizen remarks
that "Devoe is a forceful speaker and
gave one of the best republican
speeches the writer ever listened to."
"There is absolutely nothing but
sunshine at state headquarters." Sec
retary Beebe said today. "Reports
coming in from every section of the
state snow satisfactory progress.
Party Is United.
"We have a united party for the
first time since 1910 the republicans
are solid in the support of Hughes.
It is really remarkable to find the
unity of feeling. Practically the en
tire progressive vote is back in re
publican ranks, under the progressive
leadership of Justice Hughes, and
there is a certain feeling of victory
"On the other hand, there is serious
distention in the ranks of the demo
cratic party of the state and the
Bryan wing is refusing to stand for
the dictatorship which Arthur Mul
len seeks to impose. We figure that
it will keep the democratic politicians
busy straightening out the trouble
in their own ranks between now and
November 7, without paying any at
tention to anything else."
