Democratic Candidate Shown
Not to Have Been Author
' of Guaranty Law.
ALBERT PAID FOB WORK
(From a Staff Correapondant.)
Lincoln, Oct. 29. (Special.) The
claim of Victor E. Wilson, democrat
ic candidate for state railway com
missioner that he was the author of
the state guaranty law is being ques
tion even by the members of his own
party and especially by the friends of
Judge I. L. Albert of Columbus, who
is said to be just a little peeved be
cause Wilson is claiming all the glory
for the passage of the law, when the
facts, boms out by the records of the
190 sessions do not disclose that the
bill even bore the name of Victor
E. Wilson, but on the other hand was
introduced by Ihe banking committee,
of which Representative Charles
Graff was chairman and bears his
name, with the information "intro
duced by Charles Graff and point
. committee on banking."
A f.. i r it., rj
' i iiuuiti pel uaAl ui me xiuusc
Journal covering banking legislation,
discloses that a bank guaranty bill
introduced by Mr. Wilson was indef
It is also well Ttnown that the
coffers of the state treasury were
drawn on for the purpose of paying
I. L.1 Albert of Columbus, a demo
crat, 2$50 for drawing up the bill
and getting it in shape so it would
stand alone. '
Now Mr. Wirspn is claiming, so it
is understood, that Mr. Albert took
the bill postponed by the house ani
reported it to the committee as Mr?
Wilson had drawn it. If the claims
of Mr. Wilson are correct, Mr. Al
bert was paid $250 for doing nothing
and it is this claim of Mr. Wilson
which friends of Mr. Albert are ob
jecting to. v
Inthe meantime Mr. Wilson goes
ahead making the claim that he wis
the author of the" bill, while thcrec
ords of the session show that his, at
tempts at authorisbp of a bank guar
anty bill were squelched by the in.
definite . postponement route and a
joint banking committee with the help
of Mr. Albert introduced the bill
which eventually became a law and
is now on the statute books.

was popular with all the boys, and the
acknowledged leader of the class.

OWN GRAIN RECORD
Nine Months' Record This Tear
Eclipses Twelve Months
of Last Year.
PREDICT . 75,000,000 BU.
Omaha received more bushels of
grain in the first nine months of this
year than it received in all the' twelve
months of 1915.
At the close of Sptember the re
ceipts in bushels were 56,526,140, while
the entire year of 1915 brought in but
Judging from the volume of grain
raised in Nebraska this year, it is
probable that the grain receipts for
Omaha will approximate 75,000,000
bushels this year.
The receipts in the month of Sep
tember alone ran practically 50 per
cetn ahead of the receipts of the
previous September. There were
4,540,200 bushels in September, 1915,
and 6,758,200 bushels in September,
The first nine months of the pres
ent year brought in 47.143 carloads of
grain, as against 27,520. the first nine
months of the previous year.
Wheat's, Big Grain. .
The biggest gains in receipts were
made in wheat. In the period of the
first nine months of ' 1915, 7.436,400
were received, and in the parallel per
iod this year, 27,630,840 bushels were
recived. . . i
Te receipts in oats in the past
September were alone 100 per cent
greater than the receipts of Septem
ber a year ago.
Oats, too, runs far ahead in re
ceipts for the corresponding nine
months' period. The figures are:'
Pint nlna montha of 191S 6,820,900
Flrat nine -mojitaa for 1016 10,001.100
The receipts in corn this year have
thus- far not gone as high, as for the
same period last year, but with the
large crop of corn now being gathered
in the state, and the high price being
offered, it is expected that the re
ceipts will come up rapidly as soon
as the weather gets, cold enough to
make, corn shell good.

Right of Expatriation.
Victor Rosewater, editor of The
Bee, introduced as a Jew of national
reputation, read the republican plat
form pledge to secure the right of
expatriation, which has met with the
full approval of Mr. Hughes:
"We reiterate the unqualified ap
proval of the action taken in Decem
ber, 1911, by the president and con
gress to secure with Russia, as with
other countries, a treaty that will
recognize, the absolute right of ex
patriation and prevent all discrimina
tion of whatever kind between Ameri
can citizens, whether native born or
alien, and regardless of race, religion
or previous political allegiance. We
renew the pledge to observe this prin
cipal and to maintain the right of
asylum, which is neither to be sur
rendered nor restricted, and we unite
in the cherished hope that the war
which is now desolating the world
may speedily end, with a complete and
lasting restoration of brotherhood
among the nations of the earth and
the assurance of full equal rights, civil
and religious, to, all men in every
land." . Y
Mr. Rosewater declared the Jews in
this country ask no special priviliges,
but insist that no rights belonging to
them as citizens be denied them. All
they want," he said, "is an ..equal
chance and they want to help their co

Officials Will Examine Black
list Note Before Deciding
CONTENTION IS REFUSED
Washington, Oct. 28. The next
move of the United States in the con
troversy over' the blacklist of Amer
ican firms will not be determined until
officials have had ample time to ex
amine Great Britain's reply to the
American note of July 28. protesting
against it. The reply reached the
State department today from the Lon
don embassy. Secretary, Lansing to
night said he had not decided when it
would be made public. "
The note refuses the American con
tention, which termed the blacklist
"an arbitrary interference with neu
tral trade," but is understood to offer
methods of relief which may be avail
able in some instances to lessen the
rigors of interference. "
An American reply is almost certain
to be made, based on the contention
that the blacklist violates the commer
cial treaty of 1815; that in singling out
certain American firms undue dis
crimination is shown and that an
illegal action is taken, designed to pre
vent traae witn iiermany, an end
which should be accomnlished
through blockade and contraband re
strictions. It. may be argued that the
blacklist is. designed .to cripple firms
irHgmg wmi uermany in oraer to de
stroy German trade more than for the
irfiBiediate purpose of war.
