"The people of this district owe it
to Mr. Lobeck to retire him from con
gress, because the poor fellow is get
ting m deeper every year' said Mr.
' -Jefferis. "He is receiving $7,50 a
year and yet it seems he cannot live
on that salary. He may have to go
on the chautauqua platform like Mr.
Bryan did," he continued.
No Sense of Obligation.
Mr. Jefferis addeUhis charge: "He
has no sense of obligation of his debts,
nor has he ever taken a leading stand
on any proposition." Ben S. Baker,
republican nominee for congress, was
referred to by Mr, Jefferis as a man
eminently qualified for the position
now held by Mr. Lobeck and he guar
anteed that if elected Mr. Baker would
be able to live within his salary as
congressman and pay his debts.
John L. Kennedv was commended
to the voters of Florence as an ag
gressive leader! a man who would do
honor to the state if elected and who
' would serve the interests of the state
Mr. Jefferis landed on Secretary
waker ot tne war department ior. nv
ing referred to George Washington's
continental soldiers as akin to Villa's
bandits. "Such a, statement should
not go unrebuked. It is treason to
thus belittle the institutions of a great
republic," he said.
J Baker Refert to Tariff.
Mr. Baker give a brief talk in which,
' was a concise explanation of the ad
vantages of the republican protective
-tariff, the Mexican policy and the im
portance of electing 'a republican
house and senate to support manes
nugnes as president. i

law may bo correct, but Us action Is cer
tainly unfair, and It offers a sHIeld to many
men who are not slow to takead vantage of
It. Wttnesf the case of Congressman Charles

During the last fifteen years Mn Lobeck
hna drawn ltw eomntroller of Omaha
some 116.000 and as congrtsamsn he has
drawn i.iii.UUU irom ine naiiunai guvernmvnt,
ytt his juet creditors csnnot lay their hands
upon a penny of that amount.
A congressman has thres ways of drawing
his salary First, a warrant on the treasury;
second, the money may b paid to any bank
jor Individual he may designate, and, third,
or may be left on deposit with the sergeant
a l -arms. During his Incumbency Mr. Lo
brck, I am told, has never drawn his salary,
hut hue left It oa d dos It safe from his
creditor in the keeping of Unule Bam. I
When called Into court last year on a wrlf
of execution he claimed that all he had was
three shares of stock In the Swedish Audi
Darin the last fifteen years he has drawn
over 940.00 from the public purse, yet his
creditors cannot get a cent out of almby
tare or law.

Soods- located In North Brnd, worth perhaps
600. and some doubtful claims, among them

badly my mother offered to settle with Mr.

but was met with the sxruse of no money

declared: "They prefer a peace that
