STRONG FOR HUGHES
Sutton Tells State Committee
of Successful Meetings
Over the State.
RESULT OF TRAIN POLLS
(Prom a Staff Correepondent.)
Lincoln, Oct. 21. (Special.)
Changes which mean a great deal to
tho chancel of Hughes carrying Ne
braska are apparent alt along the
line, according to Judge A. L. but
ton, republican candidate for gover
: nor, who was in Lincoln today, and
! railed at rrniihliran headauarters.
"The republican ticket will surely
be elected from top to bottom, said
s the mdee. I' have been especially
I pleased with the sentiment in favor
? of taking the state out of democratic
I hands and putting it in the hands of
S the republicans. 1 he Hughes senti-
? ment is gaining every day and should
be sufficient to 'carry him across as
j far as Nebraska is concerned, when
J election day comes. .
I Crowds at Meetings.
' "We have been drawing good
crowds in most .of the places where
l we have spoken. The voters are be-
! ginning to take more interest in the
campaign than was at first apparent,
I which in itself is a indicatioo that the
i republican ticket is gaining.
i ' Poling of trains, according to re
j ports coming to the republican state
headquarters is continuing to show
I a decided Hughes trend. A train from
Lincoln to Harvard on the Burlington
polled Wednesday, showed Hughes
twenty-eight and Wilson twenty-two.
A smoking car on the line from Ox
: ford to Beaver City, showed Hughes
thirteen and Wilson nine,- Another
smoker on the same line returning
showed Hughes six and Wilson tour.

Elgin, Neb, Oct 21. (Special.)
Although the highways in Pierce, An
telope and Knox counties are made
quite impassable because of the snow
and rain of the last day or two, the
campaign of John L. Kennedy, repub
lican candidate for United States
senator, and William P. Warner, re
publican candidate for congress from
the Thifd , district continued yester
day without' great change in the
itinerary, and they arrived here last
night by automobile from the north
ern part ot Antelope county accom
panied by George N. Seymour, repub
lican candidate tor regent ot the Uni
versity of Nebraska, and Rollie Huff
man of Elgin, who had met them at
Brunswick, and held a lively and
largely attended political rally in the
New Community hall.
Mr. Seymour presided and intro
duced Mr. Kennedy and Mr. Warner
with a very pleasant and instructive
speech which was much appreciated
by both audience and candidates.
Antelope County Stirred.
The Oakdale band furnished a must
cal program of popular and patriotic
selections and added to the gayety of
the occasion. The Oakdale band is
one of the best -bands in.the state. It
was to have accompanied the speak
era over the county today, but the
bad roads made it impossible for
them to do so. Antelope county has,
however, been greatly stirred by to
day's campaign and a growing inter
est in the coming election is notice-,
able on all sides. While Mr, Kennedy
and Mr. Warner are assured of a
freat vote here, it is generally be
leved that Judge A. L. Sutton will
carry the county by a substantial ma
jority and that Mr. Hughes will run
especially strong. .' , ,
County Candidates Travel.
Others who have acconmanied
Messrs. Kennedy and Warner todav
are John H. Recroft, candidate for
! I- -i . I J- . ' r T-
ticrx ui tne district court: u. c.
Thornton; candidate for county treas
urer; Perry H. Peterson. candidate
for county clerk; Lewis D, Curtis
candidate for countv snoerintendent:
Lyle E, Jackson, candidate for county
attorney, and S. I. Nies' member of
the congressional committee.
The day's campaign started in
Wausa in the morning when the can
didates were conducted about the
town by F. E. Anderson and Pi A.
Anthony. , Because of trains beinsr
snow bound, it was impossible for
Mr. Warner' and Mr. Kennedy to
make their schedule of towns yester
day and Jackson, Ponca, Allen, Dixon.
Laurel and Coleridge were .reached
only by telephone, although many of
the voters have come in to . attend
meetings at other points along .the
line. From Wausa they were con
ducted to Osmond by Arthur Holm
quilt, chairman of the Knox countv
committee. There a meeting was held
at 10 o'clock in the Rogers Drug store
building. Colonel Walsh presided.
Meeting at Plainview.
They were next escorted to Plain
view, where an afternoon meeting was
held in the opera house. At this meet
ins: O. E. Enirler. chairman f the
: Pierce county committee, presided.
Editors O. C. Miller, W. G. Squires,
were a part of the party, from here
and at Brunswick another meeting
was held out-of-doors. At this meet
ing Mrs. Seymour presided. The roads
between Plainview and Brunswick
were so bad that it was with great
difficulty that the campaign party
finally got through. At Royal an
other out-of-doors meeting was held.
Here the party was joined by a large
number of Antelope county citizens
who conducted the speaker to Elgin.
It was impossible to reach Orchard
in time to continue with the schedule
of the day, but an effort will be made
to do so later.
Today the campaign continued with
a morning meeting at Neligh and
other meetings at Oakdale and Tilden,
where a party of Norfolk republicans
met the candidate and 'conducted
them to Norfolk. Stops were made
at Meadow Grove 'and Battle Creek
and a night meeting was held
Madison. All along the line there
growing enthusiasm among the re
publicans. Hughes stock is rising
perceptibly and. the election of Ken
nedyv Sutton and Warner seems as
sured. , - ,
