Wanamaker Denounces Demo Plan to Coerce the Postmasters New York, Nov. 6. (Special Tele gramsFormer Postmaster General John Wanamaker has issued a state ment sharply denouncing the scheme which has been reported to him, whereby Wilson campaign managers had planned to coerce postmasters into voting for Wilson. Mr. Wana maker said: "I have been informed that every postmaster in every town and city in every state in the country is to re ceive a telegram, between now and Monday, telling him to vote for Woodrow Wilson. When I was in the Postoffice department, I would rather have had my right hand cut off than to tell a man to vote for any man for president, because he had a $1,000 job in the department. "I am informed, on unimpeachable authority, that the telegrams have been filed with both the large tele graph companies. "To my mind, it is a crime to at tempt to intimidate postmasters with $800 or $1,000 a year jobs, or even the higher salaried postmasters, to vote for Mr. Wilson. That office means that man's bread and butter, and to intimate to him that if Mr. Wilson is REPUBLICANS SURE CADSEWILL WIN G. 0. P. Candidate Says He Has No Doubt that He Will Be Elected Tuesday. FINAL ORDERS SENT OUT New York, Nov. 6. Both demo crats and republicans profess confi dence in the outcome of the voting Tuesday. Final orders have gone out from the headquarters here of the na tional committees to the chiefs in other states, but instructions will be transmitted tomorrow to sub-chiefs and lieutenants all the way down to the precinct captains. Charles E. Hughes, the republican presidential candidate, who will re main here until after election, an nounced tonight that he considers his campaign closed and that he has no further statement to make. He told the few callers he had, however, that he felt sure of victory Goes for Walk. Mr. Hughes slept until 10:30 o'clock this morning and did not leave his hotel until after dinner tonight, when he went for a walk. The republican nominee will vote Tuesday morning from the hotel here, which is his legal residence. The polling place will be an Eighth Ave nue laundry. Neither Vance C. McCormick, the democratic national chairman, nor William R. Willcox, the republican chairman, had statements to make to day. Each spent part of the day at neaaquancrs mailing plans lor to morrow. President Wilson s final message to state and county chairmen, wired from Long Branch, was made public at democratic headquarters without comment. It was said to speak for Itself. Eleventh Hour Efforts. Eleventh hour efforts of both parties will be bent to "swinging" the election of congressmen in doubtful districts throughout the country. Temperance Play By Endeavorers The temperance play, "At the Court of Miss Columbia" was given in con nection with the Christian Endeavor convention Sunday afternoon at the First Christian church. The charac ters included fifteen young girls, all dressed in white and impersonating the dry states. Miss Columbia, un personated by Ruth Bruechert, urged Uncle Sam to make the United states dry. Her attendants were Evelyn Westgate and Isabel Campbell. Following her plea diplomats from Russia, Walter Lantlin; Mew Zealand. George Jennings; "-Germany, Donald Mahaffey; Oreat Britain, Harold Boggs; France, Howard Woerner; Canada, Edward Pleuler; Austria, Leonard Camp; Sweden, Joe Hiddlis- ton; Hungary, lheodore Woods; Ice land, Joe Fhainholpa; New Found- land, Herrick Yungall,' told Uncle Sam of the benefits derived from abstinence. Uncle Sam upon hearing the evi dence, told Miss Columbia that he was but the servant of the people and could do nothing. Near the conclusion of the play Miss Nebraska made a direct appeal for the people of the state to put her in the same class as her dry sisters. She was encouraged by seven other young girls, dressed to represent those states voting on prohibition this year. , A temperance recitation by Mary Etta Cantannio was well received. The play concluded with an address by Rev.JJ'rank Lowe, jr., Columbus, Mo., on tne frice ot Victory. First Unitarians Sanction Their New Church Site The First Unitarian church congre gation ratified Sunday the purchase by its special committee , of the site for their new church at Turner boule vard and Harney street. fending the construction ot the new edifice, the church will have tem porary quarters on the ground floor of the Hamilton block at Twenty- fourth and rarnam streets, where Rev. Robert F. Leavens, the new pas tor, will have his office. There also will be held the meetings of the trus tees, the Women's alliance and the Junior club.

Mr. Basmger is anticipating a heavv farm passenger business to California ; during the winter months. not elected he will lose his office, is beyond all reason, indecent politics. When I was postmaster-general, no such action was ever or would ever have been tolerated by me. During my administration, there were about o7,000 postmasters in the United States. Now there must be between 90,000 and 100,000. Think of each in cumbent of a postoffice getting a mes sage of coercion to vote for Mr. Wil son and intimating that if he does not do as ordered he may lose his office. "These telegrams, according to my information, have all been written and filed with the telegraph companies. They have, so I have learned, been distributed by each telegraph company to a headquarters in every state in the union and are all to be sent Mon day. From what I have been able to learn, the messages are worded practically alike. I have been unable to find out, however, whose signature is attached to these telegrams. If these messages were sent it must be with the knowledge of Mr. Wilson, and if this is the case, the scheme is. in my opinion, a piece of unclean poli tics, which I would never have countenanced as postmaster-general." ANCIENT POLAND IS AGAINA NATION Once Powerful Kingdom of Europe Takes Place Anew as Independent State. TEUTON EMPIRES SPONSORS Berlin, Nov. .6. (By Wireless to Sayville.) "Polish provinces occupied by troops of the central powers," says the Overseas News agency, "were the scene today of a great and momentous historic event. Germany and Austria- Hungary by joint action proclaimed Warsaw and Lublin, the kingdom of Poland, and re-established the right of the Polish nation to control its own destinies to live an independent na tional life and to govern itself by chosen representatives of the nation. "A few days ago a Polish delegation had called upon the imperial chan cellor. Dr. von Bethmann-noliweg. Its members were representative Poles of all classes, all parties, all ranks of society and all creeds. They transmitted to the German govern ment the wishes of the Polish nation which now have been granted to them. "Thus the ancient kingdom of Poland from which in the past came famous rulers like the Jagellones (a dynasty founded by Jagello, which reigned in Poland from 1386 to 1572), and glorious soldiers like the great Sobieski (John III, king of Poland in 1674-1696), is now resurrected. "The Poles are free from Russian oppression; no more to be trodden under the heels of the Cossacks. The liberty that had been destroyed a cen tury afo on Russian instigation now is restored. The rule of the knout has been abolished, Poland has been given back to western civilization." Grain Prices Are Still Slumping; No Market Tuesday There is no grain market Tuesday. Here, as elsewhere, the grain men want to take a little whirl in the po litical game and consequently the ex change will be closed all election day. Grain prices continue to slump, corn being the hardest hit, due to the reports of enormous yield and good quality. The Omaha market was off 14 cents from Saturday, prices ranging from 8494 cents per bushel. The receipts for the day were eighty carloads. Wheat was 2 cents lower, selling at $1.621.77 per bushel. Receipts were iw carloads. Oats went off a half and sold at 5050-X cents, with forty-one car loads oh sale. Weather is to Be Fine for All to Turn Out to Vote Weather out in the state is just about perfection. Temperatures are running high and not a cloud is vis ible. Similar conditions maintain all through the mountains, according to the reports to the railroads. This is taken to mean that the weather on election day in Nebraska will be fine. Railroad men assert that informa tion coming to them indicates that with fair weather and the fall work pretty well out of the way, the farm ing sections of the state will poll the largest vote ever recorded. F. C Best Wants Bridge Question .Handled Alone Frank C. Best, candidate for re-election as county commissioner, has ex pressed himself as favoring a division of the road and bridge committee. He contends that the good roads question is one of sufficient impor tance and of such interest to the pub lic that it should demand the attention of a committee by itself. .

REAK-UP-A-CQLD Ev..a- NEW YORK HUGHES B HDNDREDTHOOSAND President of'Hughei Alliance Gives His Estimate Based on Enrollment. WAGE EARNERS FOR HIM New York, Nov. 6. (Special Tele gram.) "New York state will be back of Charles E. Hughes on November 7 with at least 100,000 majority. Labor ing men and all other groups of wage earners are standing by him staunch ly; 90 per cent of progressive vote of 1912 and from 10 to 12 per cent of vote cast four years ago for Wilson is assured him.-. Such is the prediction of Philip J. McCook, president of the New York Hughes alliance. The fact that there are enrolled in the New York Hughes alliance 175,000 voteis of all parties, the greatest groups ever brought together in a non-partisan movement, justifies Mr. McCook in (peaking with authority of the result in this state. Mr. Mc Cook says: "Ninety per cent of the progressives of 1912 will vote for Hughes. Between 10 per cent and 12 per cent of those who voted for Wilson in 1912, will vote for Hughes. The drift of the Taft vote of 1912 to Wilson is inconsider able. The independents are in very large numbers for Hughes. The labor vote will, as usual, be divided and of it Mr. Hughes will receive at least the usual share which goes to a repub lican candidate. "New York will give at least 100,000 majority for Hughes and I shall be rather surprised if it is not nearer 150,000. "The Hughes alliance in this state now has over 175,000 members. From a careful analysis of our membership recently made, the following signifi cant facts are disclosed: Thirty-eight per cent or 66,500 are laborers; 31 per cent, or 54,250 are clerks, salesmen and buyers.

Youth Hangs Self In Cell in County Jail; Tired of Life Declaring that he was tired of the way .he had been living and feeling confident that the future held no hope of change for him, Chance Jewell, 22 years old, ended his life Saturday night by hanging himself in a celt at the county jail, where he was serving a sixty-day jail sentence for vagrancy. Jewell tore a strip of cloth from a blanket and tied one end to the bars of his cell and the other to his neck. Lack of space prevented a quick death, and from the position he was found in by Deputy Sheriffs William Hogan and Joseph Popischal early Sunday morning, it is thought that he knelt as in prayer, in order to strangle himself. A note, scrawled on a paper bag, was addressed to his two sisters, who live at the Rex hotel, Sixteenth and Cass streets, requested that he be buried next to his mother, who died several months ago. Jewell was arrested Friday by Offi cer Charles Pipkin, as a suspect in connection with investigation of stolen automobiles. Nothing could be proven against him in this connec tion, bnt while he was in court, he was recognited as the youth who stole a bicycle and sold it for $5. Police say he had a bad record. He had been a newsboy, messenger, and taxi driver around the streets of Omaha for ten years. Court Gets $125 from Raid On Disorderly House L. A. Rohn, Sixth and Pierce streets, was arraigned in police court charged with keeping a disorderly house.

CROWD IS ENTHUSIASTIC A meeting held Sunday afternoon in Bohemian Turner hall on South Thirteenth street left no doubt as to the loyalty of Bohemian citizens to ward the candidacy of John L. Ken nedy for United States senator. Va clav Buresh called the meeting to order and related some of the reasons why Bohemians should vote for Mr. Kennedy as against Senator Hitch cock. The crowd cheered enthusiastical ly when Chairman Buresh mentioned the name of Kennedy. Vaclav Bribyl spoke in behalf of A. C, Harte and I rank L. Best, republican nominees for the county board. John Simanek made a brief talk for the republican ticket. Stanley Serban and Joseph Kaspar also spoke. General opinion on South Thir teenth street and adjacent territory is that John L. Kennedy will carry every precinct. Mystical Order of Rosae Crucls Comes to Omaha In his lecture on "God'i Book of Life" Sunday evening at Theosophical hall, Sherman G. Peticolas said: ''With the passing of the dark ages, the light which has been kept burning during the centuries by that devoted band ol philosophers and scientists known as the Ancient and Mystical Order Rosae Cruris has been thrown into the dark places of occult knowledge, and now an Ancient Hermetic brotherhood has come to bless America with its teach ings and with its coming astrology will blossom as a rose. "Omaha is to have the grand lodge for Nebraska for the order and a grand secretary has been chosen and resides in this city." the CIGARS M 1 POLLARD IS CERTAIN HUGHES WINS STATE Nehawka Man Says Republican Nominee Will Carry Ne braska by 10,000. DEMS HAVEN'T A CHANCE (From a itaff Corraipondent.) Lincoln, Nov. 6. (Special.) Charles E. Hughes will carry Ne braska by not less than 10,000 ma jority over Wilson, is the opinion of E. M. Pollard of Nehawka, who came to Lincoln today after a campaign trip through the state. "I can't see it any 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 positions as it was before. In some places there are some republicant for Wilson, while 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 a loss by Mr. Hughes of seven or eight republicans in every precinct in Nebraska, basing the vote on the rate of four years ago, and then the republicans win, it can he 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 state." Breaks Into Barber Shop and Takes Bath For the second time during the last week, the barber shop of John Konvelin, 1202 Farnam street, was broken into.
