Tabloids of Politics
Little Items About the
Progress of the Campaign.
Colonel W. H. Green, pioneer of
Omaha, veteran of the civil war and
life-long democrat, is . outspoken
against the re-election of Senator
Hitchcock., "I can name twenty vet
erans! who voted for the senator
the last time he was (running, but
who are against him this time on
account of his neglect to vote on the
pension bill when he had the oppor
tunity. Just ask any of the veterans,"
said Mri-Green. He said he will not
vote for the senator.
Local democrats who believe they
can "get away" with their claims that
Bill Jones and John Smith have
switched from their republican affi
liations to the Wilson boosters have
another guess coming. A man who
has been engaged for the, purpose was
given a list of eighteen names of men
heard mentioned at different times
by uncouth democratic workers who
are being paid to spread such reports.
This man went to the election, com
missioner's office and discovered that
seventeen were registered as demo
crats, while one was registered as re
publican. The lone republican was
checked up and he admitted that he
voted for Wilson four years ago. The
facts are that republicans are not
changing their minds in this cam
paign. On the contrary, it is hot hard to
find a democrat who is at heart a
Hughes man, although he may be dis
inclined to relinquish his allegiance
to democracy. A prominent Omaha
man, identified with the democratic
party, holding a public office and a
man of education and means, yester
day admitted that he admired Mr.
Hughes in every way. He is not
ready to allow the use of his name in
' this connection, but his friends be
lieve he will vote for Hughes. "I ad
mit Wilson's Mexican policy was all
wrong and I believe that if re-elected
Wilson will clean out the dead
timber of his cabinet. I regard Mr.
Hughes as one of the greatest public
men in public- life today. I would not
hesitate to follow his leadership if he
should be elected," said this demo
crat. The use of this man's name, of
course, would add materially to the
weight of his words as used in this
instance, but he does not want to'
make' any public declaration of his
present, position. The fact of the
business is, he wants to remain a
democrat, and at the same time he is
outspoken in his praise of Mr.
Hughes as the greatest leader of the
A downtown republican headquar
ters has been opened at 1607 Farnam
street, where candidates and workers
may drop in conveniently and discuss
matters in connection with the cam
paign. Citizens generally are invit
ed to call for information.
George Tribble of the Union Pacific
headquarters has returned from Bos
ton, New York and other points,
where he interested himself in poli
tical sentiment. "I feel confident that
Hughes will carry all of the New
England states," said this Omahan.
CUT EXPENSES, SAYS
Eliminate Loafers from State
Pay Roll by Making Candi
dates So Promise.
SAVING IN TWO YEARS
"Put your Douglas county candi
dates for the legislature on the wit
ness stand and see if they wilt agree
to stand by the policy of holding
down the number of useless employes
of the state house," said A. E. Shel
don, director of the legislative refer
ence bureau of Nebraska, in a talk to
the Barristers' cluh at the Commer
cial club rooms.
"Only by so doing will you be able
to avoid sending men to the legisla
ture who go there not to make laws,
but to provide jobs for a whole train
of friends following along' behind
Mr. Sheldon reviewed the work of
his bureau in the matter of eliminating
useless matter and cutting out absurd
ities from the rough drafts of bills
that are introduced in the legisla
He gave figures to show how much
the cost of employes of the state
house was reduced during the 1915
session over the cost in 1913, all on
account of the adoption of some mod
ern methods recommended by a spe
cial committee. .
So again the speaker admonished
the public to put their candidates on
the witness stand as to whether they
would stand for this policy. "If you
don't," he warned, "they'll try to over
throw this policy of 1915 and make
jobs for friends."
Is Dauntless Man
"If quicksand bothers, we'll freeze
it and bore through it."
This is the answer A. J. P. Bertschy
makes when friends confront him
with questions as to how he would
overcome certain obstacles in con
structing a tunnel or subway under
the Missouri river between Omaha
and Council Bluffs.
Mr. Bertschy recently startled
Commercial club circles by announc
ing that a subway or tunnel is much
more feasible than a free bridge. He
is now drawing sketches and making
estimates as to cost.
When told that the quicksand in
the river bed would, form a great ob
stacle, he replied that an ammonia
pipe line would be laid to the spot,
and that the Baker Ice Machine com
pany of Omaha could install the nec
essary apparatus to freeze the sand
in a brief period, after which the work
of boring and tunnel construction
could go on uninterrupted. Freezing
of quicksand in order to facilitate tun
nel work is a trick well known to en
gineers in big construction jobs of

H. F. Swanback, one of the resi
dents at the Odd Fellows' Home at
York, is the oldest Odd Fellow liv
ing in Nebraska, and nearly if not
quite the oldest citizens of the state.
He was born March 9, 1815, in Ger
many, and is a veteran of two wars.
In 1848 he fought with the Prussians
against the Danes, and, gained then
the Iron Cross. On this side he
served four years in the civil war.
Forty years ago he came to Nebraska,
and has been hate and happy ever
since. On pleasant days he walks
from the Odd Fellows' Home into
York and back, and enjoys it.

ARMENIANS TO BE HELPED
Shortage of flowers was the only
thing which marred the success of
flower day for the Syrian relief fund.
Only 8,000 carnations could be secured
and the high cost of roses detracted
a great deal from the sum total col
lected. About $700 had been collected
up to noon.
High "school and university coeds,
together with young Syrian girls, sold
the flowers under chaperonage of
Omaha Woman's club members.

Surety Company Asserts
It Has No Agent Here
A new legal point that involves
practically every saloon keeper's
bond in the state of Nebraska is rais
ed in an answer filed by the Illinois
Surety company in the suit of Nettie
Prior against seven proprietors of sa
loons. The Illinois Surety company, the
bonding organization for the majority
of Nebraska saloon keepers, went
bankrupt last June. In the answer
to the suit brought by Nettie Prior
the bonding company holds that it
cannot be sued, for the reason that
legal service has not been obtained.
The only service obtained was on
W. B. Eastham, insurance commis
sioner, and the surety contpany claims
that this was not legal. The receiver
for the Illinois company was appoint
ed by a court in that state, the plain
tiff in the present petition contending
that legal service must be obtained on
the receiver. It is set forth that the
company has had no agent in Ne
braska since the company went bank
rupt. If the point in the surety com
pany's answer is sustained, the sa
loon keepers' bonds in Nebraska will
be worthless, as far as obtaining ser
vice on them is concerned.
