DBMS HAVEN'T A CHANCE
(From fltaff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Nov. 5. i: Special. )
Charles E. Hughes will carry Ne
hranlta hv not less than 10.000 ma
jority over Wilson, is tlta opinion of
K. M. 1'ollard ot wenawka, wno came
to Lincoln today after a campaign
trip through the state.
"I can't see it anv other way," said
Mr., Pollard. -There have been
changes on both sides, but when the
swapping has been done, you will find
that it leaves the proposition in just
about the same relative position as t
was before. In some places there are
ntn rnh heinq tnr Wl&nn. Wfll e
in other places there is a decided
going to Hughes on the part of demo
. crats. When you take into considera
tion that there can be i loss by Mr.
Hughes of seven or eight republicans
in every precinct in ocuiabm, vaauig
the vote on the rate of four years ago,
and then the republicans win, it can
be readily seen that there has got to
be a real landslide for the democrats
to carry the state for Wilson.
"Nebraska is normally republican
by at least 15,000 to 18,000, to say the
least, and I fail to see' anything in the
situation which would make me be
lieve that Wilson will carry the atate."
Devoe Proves Good
State for G.0.P,
-' (From a Stiff Corrofftondant.)
Lincoln, Nov. 5. (Special.) Prac
tically unknown to. (he rank and file
of the republican party six months
ago, Robert W. Devoe, after a cam
paign of oratory, which took him into
sixty counties of the state, is today
one o( the most popular speakers in
In many particulars the record of
Devoe has never been equalled. He is
the republican nominee fdc attorney
general, but has never mentioned that
fact in his Speeches. He has never
mentioned the name of his opponent,
and never alluded to the latter, al
though General Keed has been sub
jected to a running fire of criticism
perhaps even more severe than has
Mr. Devoe has spoken in sixty coun
ties. He made forty-five consecutive
night speeches, practically all of them
preceded by from two to twenty day
In his speeches he urged the selec
tion of Hughes, the choice of John L.
Kennedy for United States senator,
and the election of Sutton and the
republican state ticket. At Ponca he
met Dan V. Stephena in joint debate
and the oratorical bout was one of the
dramatic incident! of the campaign.
He assailed the record of the demo
cratic congressman and pleaded for
the election of Kennedy and Warner.
Devoe was born in Franklin county,
studied law at the University of Ne
braska and has practiced law at Sid
ney and Lincoln.
In the opinion of the republi
can campaign managers, Mr. Devoe's
"peaking tour, the longest and most
rdous of any state candidate, has
added materially to the strength of
Kennedy, Sutton and the national and
congressional tickets. Regardless of
the outcome of the election, they de
clare, Mr. Devoe has made an enviable
name as an orator. . ; .

Pierce, Neb., Nov. 5. (Special.)
A. W. Jefferis of Omaha spoke on the
issues of the day from a republican
standpoint Saturday evening at this
place to an audience that crowded'
the city auditorium to the limit and
even filled the hall corridor. Mr.
Jefferis held the attention of his
listeners for over an hour and a half,
his logic and keen reasoning being
appreciated and bringing enthusias
tic applause. A large number of dem
ocrats made up the audience, many of
whom who have announced publicly
that they will vote for Hughes. The
music by -the band and some songs
by the male quartet put the crowd m
good humor and prepared the au
dience for the reception of the
splendid speech of Mr. jefferis. On
feature of the meeting was the march
ing, of a number of members of the
Grand Army of the Republic to the
auditorium in a body, headed by
Joseph Forsyth as flag bearer. Al
though fierce county lias been
stronsly democratic in years past
there is a strong Hughes sentiment
throughout the county and the repub
lican ticket will make a considerable
gain. A straw vote, taktn at the
Rexall drug store here yesterday,
showed 76 for Hughes and 28 for Wil

Address at Lexington
Lexington. Nov. 5. (Special.)
United States Senator George W.
Norris. addressed the largest politi
cal gathering of any political speaker
this season, in Auble's hall Friday
night. The closest attention was paid
to him by the hearers, while he
showed the fallacies of fre trade" as
put out by the democrats. He also
answered the questions as to what he
would have done on the war matter,
and especially so pn the Mexican
trouble, to the satisfaction of the
people that heard him. He likened
the democrats in, congress to a foot
ball team, that when the signal was
given by President Wlson, they
moed as he said. The people that
heard him were more than satisfied
with the address. '
Largest Gathering of the" Kind
in the State in Session Here
for Last Tout Days.
MANY MEETINGS ABE HELD
"To be a first-class citizen we must
be good men of business, good teach
ers and thinkers, good churchmen and
good family men," said Rc?. J. A.
Leavitt, state superintendent of the
Society tor the friendless, at the
men's mass meeting in the Brandeis
' It was one of the meetings in the
last day of the Nebraska State Chris
tian hndeavor convention.
"We must be square in business.
he said. "We must teach our chil
dren and our fellow men rightly and
we must think on public problems and
act for the greatest good of the great
est number. We must be good church
men. It doesn t matter whether we
are Catholics or Protestants or of
what denomination; we must be faith
ful to the church with which we wor
ship. We must be good family men
and look out for the next generation."
Daniel A. Poling of Boston, assist
ant to Rev. Dr. Francis E. Clark, in
ternational president of Christian En
deavor, spoke on "Citizenship."
"Delinquency in public life keeps
step with indifference in private life,"
he declared. "When public affairs are
administered badly it is usually be
cause private citizens don't care.
"We should thank God daily for the
religious freedom we have in this
country. Men of any religion can
meet and worship as they believe. In
Russia Dr. Clark found that no pri
vate religious gathering of more than
seven persons is tolerated. We should
be thankful, too, for our industrial
freedom, for, in the last analysis, men
in the industries get the rights to
which they are entitled. And we
should be thankful for our educational
freedom, for our magnificent public
school system, which is the founda
tion of our liberties. In Spain over
75 per cent of the common people
cannot read or .write. Here practical
ly everybody can read and write and
'linger,' too'., -
The day was full of activities for
the Christian Endeavorers. 1 A quiet
hour and bible study at 9 a. m., a di
vine service in the international lan
guage, Esperanto at 10 a. m. marked
the morning. Some of the delegates

Rally for Children.
Besides the Afternoon men' mass
meeting, there was a woman's mass
meeting at the First Christian church,
wherfra temperance rally for the chil
dren was held and several addresses
were given for the adults.
In the evening at the Brandeis the
final meeting was held. Most of the
Christian Endeavor societies of the
city united their regular meetings
with the convention meeting, which
was held at the Brandeis at 6:50 p.
m. A song and praise service, with
the big city union chorua on the
stage, was held at 7:30. Addresses
by Bishop Bell of Los Angeles and
Daniel A. Poling of Boston marked
the evening meeting. ' .
The theater was crowded to ca
pacity and with. . this , meeting the

To Injure Kennedy .
Proves to Be Fizzle
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Nov. 5. (Special.) The
last attempt of the democratic state
committee to throw suspicion on ine
methods used by John L. Kennedy,
in his campaign for the United States
senate met a setback which proved a
boomerang when, after an investiga
tion of the charges made that the
Kennedy headquarters had been send
ing out letters emanating from a pro
gressive source and enclosing them
in envelopes bearing a return oard
of democratic headquarters, presum
ably to carry the impression that they
came from democratic source favoring
the election of Mr. Kennedy, it was
discovered last night that just one
poor lone letter had been forwarded
to democratic headquarters, alleging
that it had been received by a former
The investigation disclosed the fact
that the list of progressives furnished
Victor Seymour, manager of the Ken
nedy campaign, by F. P. Corrick, state
chairman of the progressive party,
from which letters were sent, did not
contain the name of the man alleged
to have received the letter, and also
that the letter was addressed on a
typewriter having a purple ribbon,
while all typewriters used in both the
Kennedy and republican state head
quarters use black ribbons.
As the letter, was sent out from Lin
coln and in art envelope with a demo
cratic return card, the republican com
mittee is sure it was sent out by the
democratic committee themselves.

An Appeal to the Catholics
The A. P. A. was at one time a potent factor in
Nebraska.' Thanks to the intelligent Non-Catholics
of the State, it has practically ceased to exist. Its
declination and disappearance was due primarily to
intelligent Catholics proving, by their daily lives and
by their civic action, to the Non-Catholic neighbors
that the charges brought against the Catholics of
disloyalty was absolutely unjust.
Now, the greatest enemy of the Catholic Religion
is a member who so conducts himself, or his political
activities, that Non-Catholic citizens come to believe
untruths about Catholics and their Church. He is es
pecially dangerous and reprehensible when he repre
sents that the Church or high officers of the Church
sanction his disreputable political work.
' A case in point has just arisen in this campaign and
I "believe the men responsible for it should be exposed
and denounced so that all men, both Catholics and
Non-Catholics, may in the future relegate them to a
place, politically, where they can do no harm.
An alleged attorney of Omaha, giving his name
as Geo. Merton, came into Humphrey, Friday, Novem
ber 3, and called on a prominent Catholic, who is an
officer of the local Knights of Columbus Council here.
He said in substance he was sent to Humphrey to see
the Catholics and appeal to their, religious prejudice
in this election, giving as his reason that the other side,
were doing the same thing.
; He produced a purported copy of a letter written
to the Nebraska Prosperity League by a womkn living
at Creighton, Nebraska, in which purported letter, or
copy, the Knights of Columbus and other Catholic or
ganizations were slandered; he said he was sent out
by Arthur Mullen and John C. Byrnes. The prominent
Catholic appealed" to brought this man to my bank, I
being a Catholic, and he repeated the above charges
and statements to me and .asked me to call up J. C.
Byrnes, who would vouch for him. I called John C.
Byrnes, who was in Omaha, and had two others on the
line to confirm what Mr. Byrnes said. Mr. Byrnes
not only approved the method, but vouched for this
man Merton and said I could depend on anything he
told me. The same method, I understand, is being
employed in other parts of the State.
A copy of this letter was left at a local saloon in
Humphrey and I received a printed copy this morning.
The local Catholics and Knights of Columbus, with whom
I have talked, repudiated absolutely this method of cam
paigning. They resent with emphasis the bringing of their
religion into this campaign and they state emphatically
that this action is contrary to their sentiment and prin
ciples of their religion.
' There would seem to be only one object in this bigoted
appeal to the Catholics and that would be to arqrise re
ligious rancor and thereby help the wet cause.
The men who are responsible for that deserve the em
phatic condemnation of. every citizen of Nebraska, Cath
olic or Non-Catholic.
I, as a Catholic, wish to denounce this method of cam
paigning which violates the sentiment of a tremendous
majority of the Catholics of Nebraska, and the principles
of their church and I ask them to join me in this condem
nation. Merton claims he was sent by Arthur Mullen and J. C.
Byrnes and Byrnes confirms this. I appeal to the Catholics
of Nebraska to be true to the principles of their Religion
and repudiate the action of these men in an effective
manncr- N. M. CONDON.
