Lincoln and Grand Island
Short Cut Road Proposed
Aurora, Neb., March 18. (Special.)
Secretary D. C. Smith of the Commer
cial club will this week call t meeting
of interested parties in Seward, York,
Aurora and Grand Island for the dis
cussion of the proposed short cut
road trom Lincoln to brand laiand.
This is to be one of the recognized
roads for autoists. Secretary Smith
had a conference with Dr. Condra of
the Advisory Highway commission
and received his tentative support of
the establishment of the new road.
Just what name to give to this road
is puzzling Mr. Smith. One name pro
posed is the S. Y. A. Short Cut. This
recognizes the 'names of Seward,
York and Aurora. Another proposed
name is the "Lincoln-Grand Island
Short Cut." The new road will fur
nish an outlet from Lincoln to the
Lincoln Highway at Grand Island
and to the Omaha-Lincoln-Denver
road at Hastings. The road from
Lincoln through Seward, York and
Aurora to Grand Island is one of the
best roads in the state.

THE JAGIC CITY
Irish Womanhood Lauded by
Archbishop in St. Patrick
HANLEY MAKES ADDRESS
Irish womanhood in all its beauty
was lauded in the highest at the St.
Patrick's Day banquet at the Ex
change on the South Side Sunday eve
ning. Of all the high compliments paid
by Archbishop J. J. Harty, who spoke
at the conclusion of the program, his
tribute to the woman and girl of Ire
land was most beautiful.
"While you may all speak with
praise of the beauty of South Omaha
Irish women with the exterior in
mind, I see still farther. As thoughts
of my Irish mother flit for a moment,
I see that deeper, grander, nobler
woman who has made character for
her people and for the world. In
praise of them, God has blessed
. Praise to the Order.
The archbishop extended his praise
to the Ancient Order of Hibernians,
tmder whose auspices the banquet
and entertainment was given. He
urged that in the highest, noblest and
truest sense of the word, Irish Hi
bernians spelled loyalty that has
written itself on the pages of
United States history. "The arch
bishop wishes to express his appreci
ation of you tonight and of the order,
the ability of which I know so well."
Hanley on Nationalism.
The nationalism of the Irish people
in America was enlarged upon by
James H. Hanley, secretary to Con
gressman Lobeck, who had journeyed
from Washington to be the speaker
of the evening.
Mayor Dahlman, one of the speak
ers, was applauded when he spoke for
Americanism. "The constitution," he
said, "the greatest document known
to mankind, grants equal rights to
man, woman, boy or girl. Millions
read this declaration and migrated
here. Out of all has sprung a new
nation in which we live, stanch in
the wisdom of our flag. We are
Americans and are behind the presi
dent to a man. Let him be right or
let him be wrong we are ever for
Dr. E. F. Shanahan pf the South
Side was toastmaster. Dr. W. J. Mc
Crann and J. J. Curtin, president of
the state order of Hibernians, were
other speakers of the evening.
The meeting closed with all 700
guests singing "God Save Ireland."
During the banquet a toast to the
pope was called for by Archbishop
Harty. Miss Rose Riley played a
violin solo, Matthew Severin sang
several . popular Irish solos, and an
Irish orchestra played several Erin
selections during the evening.

Lincoln, Neb., March 19. In a let
ter to Governor Neville, Senator
Norris of Nebraska, who was one of
the twelve senators to stand out
against the proposed law, permitting
the president to establish armed neu
trality, requests a special recall elec
tion, to determine whether the people
approve his attitude. If the majority
so wills, he says he will resign.
Senator Norris' letter is in part as
"On account of my opposition in the
senate to some of the legislation de
manded by the president, which in
substance, abdicated the constitutional
prerogative of congress to declare
war, and gave this power to the presi
dent, I have been severely denounced
and criticized not only in Nebraska,
but all over the country. These
charges have been published and re
published by the newspapers of the
country with a venom and a unanimity
which show a gigantic combination to
conceal from the people of the United
States the real issue involved, and to
push our country into the vortex of
the terrible and senseless war now be
ing waged in Europe. It is charged
not only that I am a traitor to my
country, but that I do not represent
the people of Nebraska, from whom I
hold my commission as a member of
the United States senate.
Asks Special Election.
"I have no desire to represent the
people of Nebraska ' either in the
United States senate or elsewhere if
my official conduct is contrary to their
wishes, and if I am misrepresenting
them, the remedy is a recall. Under
the constitution of the United States,
the legislature of Nebraska is pow
erless to enact a law that would en
able the people of the state to recall a
united states senator, i am, nowever,
willing to waive this technicality and
whatever rights I may possess in
this respect under the constitution. I
suggest, therefore, that you ask the
legislature of Nebraska, now in ses
sion, to pass a law providing for a
special election at which the question
of my recall can be submitted to the
people of the state. If such an elec
tion ii held, not later than May 1,
1917, under a law that will properly
provide for the punishment of illegal
voting. I agree to abide by the result
and if the verdict is against me, I will
at once place in your hands my restg'
nation as a member of the United
States senate from the state of Nebraska."
Governor Neville said tonight that
he did not think such a special elec
tion would be advisable. Not only was
there no demand for such an election.
he said, but it would be a needless
expense of money.
Washington. March 19. Senator
Norris of Nebraska made public to
night a letter he wrote yesterday to
Governor Neville of Nebraska asking
that the state legislature pass a law
providing for a referendum on
whether the senator should be re
called. He promised, if the verdict
went against him in such an election
held before May 1 under a law to
punish illegal voting, to hand the gov
ernor Mis resignation.
In a statement the senator indicated
within a few days, he expected to go
to Nebraska to accept some of the
numerous invitations that have reach
ed him to discuss the subject before

storm, which cut off all view below
and prevented them from landing for
five hours, while they were being
hurled through the air at an average
