could have neither peace ndt security
until it was prepared to maintain un
flinchingly the known rights of its
citizens on land and sea.
"Our opponents have told us in
very explicit terms," he said, "that
the constitutional rights of American
citizens should follow them through
out the world and that whenever they
were lawfully following their business
they should have full protection for
their lives and property. That prin
ciple I believe in, but performance
has not matched promises.
"We shall have no peace, no se
curity, unless we maintain our self
respect; unless we nave tne esteem
and friendship of all nations, unless
the American flag means justice,
courteous treatment, but firm and un
flinching insistence upon American
rights with respect to lives, property
and commerce on land and sea
throughout the world."
The candidate assailed the demo
cratic party as one "of broken
promises," citing among other things,
the alleged failures to observe the
merit system in making appointments,
and to reduce the high cost of living.
Our oDoonents told us they were
going to reduce the high cost of liv
ing, he said. We now have tne
higher cost of living. They have had
a certain policy to which for genera
tions they have adhered. I do not
regard it as American policy. It is
very obviously unsuited to the eco
nomic needs at this time.
"We have a temporary prosperity
due to the abnormal conditions
brought about by the European war.
But what are the conditions we have
had? Is it possible that we. can now
forget the conditions that existed in
this country before the war? Con-
lider the business depression before
the'war, consider the serious condi

throughout this country. Plants were
closed, others were reduced, thou
sands of men were walking the streets
of our large cities looking for work.

Nogales, Arir.., Oct. 28. Two
Americans, Charles England and Fritz
Schultz of Milwaukee, mining men,
were executed in Chihuahua City by
direct orders of General Trevino, a
Carranza officer, on September 19,
according to Richmond Von Dohlen,
a naturalized German-American citi

Washington, Oct. 28. In a state
ment issued today, Luis Cabrera,
chairman of the Mexican section of
the Mexican-American joint commis
sion, assailed American officials for
alleged laxity in dealing with anti
Carranza propagandists along the
border. Officials pronounced it "ex
traordinary" and gave some indica
tions that it might be the subject of
action by the State department,
Carranza Shifts Garrison.
Columbus, N. M., Oct. 28. The
Carranza garrison which has been sta
tioned at El Valle, forty-five mile
from American field headquarters at
Colonia Dublan, evacuated that town
late Thursday night and is riding to
ward Chihuahua City, it was learned
here today from sources which have
been considered reliable in the past.
This Carranza garrison has been
station at El Valle for several weeks
and has occupied a position between
the American field headquarters at
theextreme southern outpost of the
American forces.? 1 ',
It was reported here that the El
Valle garrison commander received a
hurried order to report to General
Trevino in Chihuahua City to paTri
cipate in the enveloping movement
against Villa and started at once on a
ride of approximately 150 miles, a
greater part of which will be through
territory nominally in control of the
Villa forces. '
The statement, which, caused' offi
cials much surprise as coming 'from
the head of. a Mexican delegation
now attempting to adjust border
troubles, was issued by the Mexican
news bureau, which- acts for the Mex

"A broad interpretation of the fed

Democrato Senator's Alliance
With VWet" Workers Angers
Those Demanding Moral
Leadership. ' .
. . ,t
OPPOSE NEVILLE, ALSO
Nebraska democrats who believe
that the leadership oi William J. Bry
an has. been a iporal leadership, and
who" also beiisv that Senator Hitch
cock and Keith Neville are being sup
ported by the brewers, distillers and
saloonkeepers, have started move
ment for the defeat of tiifchcock arid
Neville and the election of John L,
Kennedy and Ben S, Baker.
These voters represent clasi who
still have faith in Mr. Bryan' and who
maintain that the election of Hitch
cock and Neville will do injury to the
party and the state.
Type of Opponent!. '
Prominently identified with this
movement are these men: R. C. Roper
of David City, prominent democrat
and former county judge; N. W. Kal
lemeyn of University Place, lumber
and coal merchant and well known in
democratic affairs; Frank S. Allen,
another business man of University
Place; L. J. Quinby of Omaha, for
mer state senator; I. K. Holmes, busi
ness man of Fairbury; A. J. Knepper
of Lincoln, retired business man, ten
year county commissioner of Butler
county, and prominent in politics and
business; W. G. Kline of Lincoln,
president of Wilson and Marshall
clube; John R. Street of Broken Bow,
prominent democrat; Dr. WT. Hurst,
president of democratic club at Brok
en Bow; W. R. Patrick, Omaha, for
mer state senatorjrom Sarpy county;
Frank E. Tincher, resident of Fair
bury forty years and former mayor
of that town.
These men have started an effec
tive movement for the defeat of
Hitchcock and Neville. They are
men of political influence in their re
spective communities. Their position
is that for the welfare of democracy
in tfis state, Htchcock and Neville
must bf-- eliminated. They express
loyalty to President Wilson. v
These prominent Nebraskans have
subscribed their names to the follow
ing statement of their position:
"To the progressive democrats and
populists oi Nebraska: The demo
cratic party in Nebraska has reached
a crisis where it will take heroic
treatment tn preserve its usefulness.
Twcnty-wo years ago Mr. Bryan res
cued the ricmocratc party from the
control nf the public service corpora
tions. The democratic party in Ne
braska became the leader of thought
and action tor the democratic party ot
the nation. The legislation that has
bcetv enacted by President Wilson and
a democratic congress is a fulfillment
ofllie pledges made to the people by
Mr. Bryan twenty years ago and con
sistently advocated by him and by
the democrats of Nebraska until those
pledges have been carried out. Is
the democratic party in Nebraska go
ing now to strike its colors and go
over to the enemy?
Fostered by Liquor,
"for the last two years there has
been forming within the democratic
ranks a combination of the various
special interests under1 the leadership
of the liquor interests that has cul

Hitchcock and Mr., Neville. This
same combination of the special in
terests and immoral elements of the
state, through misrepresentation in
the columns of so-called democratic
newspapers and the lobbyists and
agents of the liquor interests, defeated
Mr. Bryan as a delegate to the na
tional convention at St. Louis. The
