The submarine steamed swiftly to

the survivors, and passed just astern.
Ordinarily such a maneuver would
disturb the sea so as to make the
capsizing of a small boat almost a
certainty. This boat, however, kept

To the Voters of the Second Congressional District
I am a candidate for the Republican nomination for Congressman for the Second Congressional
District which includes Douglas, Washington and Sarpy Counties, and naturally desire, if possible,
to meet and have a personal talk with every voter in the District particularly those who are regis
tered Republican before the primary election, which will be held on the 20th of August, 1918. The
population of the District, however, has become so great that it may be impossible to meet , each of
the voters personally -or even to meet them at the usual political gatherings. ' I want every one of
you, however, to know that I would like to meet you personally and that I want your vote, and I
am writing you at this time to ask each of you personally for your assistance and co-operation.
If you have not already done so, I should like to have you join the JEFFERIS-FOR-CONGRESS
BOOSTERS CLUB which has been organized by some of my friends and has already grown to very
considerable proportions. You can send your name to Harry S. Byrne, Secretary of the BOOSTERS
