in district court here whin Mr.
Lindquist sued him on an unpaid
note. Everybody in that court room
I was ashamed of their congressman.
I One Lobeck Bill.
"Has Lobeck ever been identified
vith any important legislation. Did
you ever hear of a Lobeck bill in
congress except the one for an em
bargo on munitions ivhen ve were
on the verge of war? If that bill
had gone through, v.c m.g' t he talk

now instead of the surrender of
" We have all heard of Jefferis,
because lie is in tact a his man. a
rnan of whom we would all be
proud to have as our congressman.
He will put Omaha on the map
when he gets to congress. It will
be serving our best interests to send
a big man to congress. Lobeck
could consistently be turned down
on the grounds that he has not been
friendly to the president.
"Look up the history of the Mc
Namara resolution. Omaha wants
a congressman who will do his own
thinking. If anybody intends to
vote for Lobeck on account of his
secretary, Jim Hanley, let me state
than Hanley has been offered a
$5,000 government job and Lobeck
would not have Hanley to help him
even if he should be re-elected.
Shall People Govern?
"The people are realizing that
they have a right to express them
selves by voice and the ballot," Al
bert W. Jefferis, congressional can
didate, stated. "The president seeks
to adjourn republican politics. The
government belongs to the people,
to the high and the lowly. The
great question tonight is, shall the
people' govern or shall we elect
someone to tell us what to do? If
it had not been for the loyalty and
devotion of republicans in congress,
I don't know what would have hap
pened to Wilson's war program.
When this war council shall be over
and it is going to be over soon
don't let them fool you by saying
that, the president will be embar
rassed by having republicans i : the
congress. Who dares to question
the loyalty of partisans who follow
in the political footsteps of Roose
velt, Taft, McKinley, Lincoln and
- "The purposes of the republican
' party have always been to legislate
to the end that the greatest free
dom, happiness and advancement
may be given to the people.
dne-Man Power Doomed.
"The situation of the democratic
party is indeed a precarious one and
they may well shed crocodile tears
over impending -defeat. The day of
a one-man power is over in this
country, as it is over in Europe."
T, P. Holister, secretary of the
republican county central com
mittee, spoke briefly. "Neville," he
said "thought he was going to war
.when, he-. believed he would be made
-colonel. ; but when that hope van
ished; his patriotism was cooled
and. then he decided to run. again
for governor.
"The democratic party would be
branded as liars today by Lincoln
for the manner they have misquoted
him. Why don't they quote Roose
velt in to-to?
"Jefferis will not be a rubber
stamp congressman when he goes to
Washington, that we may be as
sured of. If you want to continue
under the domination of the Hitchcock-Mullen
machine, then you
should vote for Lobeck and his as
sociates. Just take up any German
language paper of this state and you
will see the announcements of Lo
beck and Neville.
Democrats Hard Pressed,
v "The democrats are in -hard
straights when they have to make
n appeal for their present bunch
on the pretext that they are backing
the president. But I dont believe
that the people will stand any longer
: for this domination."
"If you were selecting a man to
represent you in personal affairs,
you would not select Lobeck as
against Jefferis," said Ben S. Baker,
chairman of the republican county
, central committee.
"I take exceptions to the presi
dent trying to coerce people to
vote for any political ticket. None
has any right to brand you as dis
loyal when you use your best judg
ment in casting your ballot. No man
need fear that if both houses of the
; congress fall into republican hands,
that the country will not be run
safely and sanely.

sent personal telegrams to this
state, asking for the re-election of
Lobeck and Neville. Vote the way
we are shooting. The people in Eu
rope won't understand it if we have
a republican congress and a demo
crat president."
Mr. Dahlman declared that he un
derstood what the flag stood for
and asserted that the high seas of
the world had been open for more
than 100 years to every man, wo
man and child until Germany chal
lenged that right.
Declaring again that he was a
"layman," Dahlman said, 'I feel that
I have a right to open these lips of
mine and to go anywhere in this
great nation and speak for those
principles and policies that are
nearest to my heart.
Nobody Cheers Lobeck.
"Then, he echoed the democratic
campaign lines, that it was essen
tial to the peace and happiness of
the world that a democratic con
gress should sit at Washington, he
cause the president wishes it to be
Then something awful happened.
When Dahlman said "Charley Lo
beck is a faithful servant," there
"was -not one ripple of applause.
The crowd cheered reference to the
flag and to America's brave men at
the front, but they did not have a
cheer for the "messenger boy" con
gressman. It was a perplexing sit
uation from a democratic stand
point. "He stood by the president in all
of his measures," was another state
ment Dahlman endeavored to make
his hearers believe, but many shook
their heads reminiscently.
Needs Demo Congress.
Omaha's former mayor then de
clared that the president needs a
democratic congress so that he may
give to the world "these rights and
" On the eve of the election cer
tain republican spokesmen have in
jected partisan politics into the
campaign, and have sought to cast
reflections upon the president by
charging him with bringing in part
isanship at this late hour," was a
startling bit of news offered by Mr.
Dunn when he appeared in the role
of courage promoter.
Mr. Dunn recited that more or
less well-known democratic piece
about the president having asked
for a democratic congress, because
only democrats are wanted at this
"The president has not said that
any party has been more patriotic
than another in this war," he added.
"None has disputed the loyalty of
the republican party and its repre
sentatives in congress, but the re
publicans have tried to take the
leadership of the war away from
President Wilson."
"I didn't think that the republi
cans would do such a thing as that,"
remarked an innocent bystander.
"We are fighting for human lib
erty and democracy," was another
bit of inside information imparted
by the speaker, and then he inflicted
a cruel thrust by asserting that he
or anybody else having the normal
q:iota of fingers might count the
republican leaders on the fingers of
one hand.
Call for 35,000 Men
( In Limited Service
For Special Posts
Washington, Nov. 4. -A drive to
secure . 35,000 volnteers from lim
ited service men, urgently needed
to fill special posts in the army was
begun today by the department of
labor's employment service at the
request of the War department. The
men are wanted for duty in this
country, and will be used to release
more active men for service over
seas. r m

ed. It caused no excitement.
It is generally assumed that the
German government will receive the
armistice terms through Washing
ton as its request was received in
that way. The Austrian case does
not form a precedent as the appeal
to Washington was supplemented
after the collapse of the Austrian
front by a direct application to
General Diaz, the Italian command
er. Unless the situation of the Ger
man armies forces similar action on
the western front however, it is as
sumed here that the German case
ij being handled through diplomat
ic channels. The present Berlin
civil government claims absolute
authority over the army.
The Versailles conferences evi
dently did not reach final agree
ment of the armistice terms un'il
late today. Just before 6 p. m., it
was stated at the state department
the work had not been completed.
An hour later word went out from
the department that an import: :it
statement would be forthcoming at
9 p. m.
Must Evacuate.
An attempt to apply the lessons
of the Austrian armistice to Ger
many's situation brings out several
points upon which military men
based their forecast of the German
terms. For one thing, it is re
garded as certain that .complete
evacuation of Alsace-Lorraine will
b; insisted upo nas well as the oc
cupation of the Rhine fortresses
by allied garrisons: Surrender of
the German submarines and a sub
stantial part of the high seas fleet
and the occupation of land defenses
that protect German naval bases al
so is implied.
So far as the German army is
concerned, it must go back into Ger
many probably without the whole
vast mechanism of war which it
carried into France and Belgium.
All the big guns, tanks and aircraft
under the Austrian precedent,
would be concentrated and left un
der the direct control of the allied
and American armies.
It was pointed out, however, that
since Germany is the last of the
central powers, when she surrenders
there will be no need to provide for
the employment of her military
equipment by Marshal Foch. There
will be no one left against whom
to turn the guns. The terms for
Germany, therefore, probably will
show that variation from the Aus
trian conditions.
Leaves It to Foch.
One feature of the Austrian sur
render conditions, which is thought
here to have been duplicated in the
German terms, is the entrusting to
Marshal Foch of the carrying out of
the programs of demobilization and
Attention already is being given
here to the next phase after Ger
many ceases fighting. Officials have
not lost sight of the fact that arm
istices are only stepping stones to
the permanent settlement of all the
issues of the war. Political ques
tions, boundaries, even commercial
rights and privileges all remain to
be defined.
Both in the United States and in
the allied countries, it is said, the
necessity is recognized of setting in
motion the wheels of peace-time in
dustry at the earliest possible mo
ment in order to afford employment
and support to the millions of dis
charged soldiers. This is expected
to hasten the peace conference once
the Germans surrender. It is re
called that whereas the armistice or
protocol which stopped the Spanish
American war was signed on Aug
ust 12, 188, it provided in its terms
for a meeting of the peace pleni
potentiaries in Paris before October
1, following. The purpose was to
assemble the conferees at the earli
est practical moment.

It takes the repair man almost
as much time and trouble to put
on old-style, rubber heels as for a
little girl to get ready for a party.
( He can put on a pair of "Usco"
rubber heels in about as little time
as it takes brother "Reddy" to get
into the. bid swimmin hole.
The old-style, 'flat rubber heel
is set on with rubber-cement and

edges, and gets frazzled and floppy.
The "Usco" rubber heel
is anchored for keeps with
a few little nails and it takes
a spy glass to End the joint.
Furthermore, the joints

"Usco" Rubber Heels are the

They are the world's best rubber
heels made by the world's largest
rubber manufacturer.
They are hollowed out on the

so close and snug all around you

The entente allies and America
expect to go into the conference
only after they have reached a per
fect understanding among them

terms and while they may choose
to permit the latter to make argu

result in the end end must be what
the victors choose to make it.

treaties, in which case the military
occupation of their countries by the
allies might continue indefinitely.

West Point Republicans
Resent Unfair Criticism
West Point. Neb., Nov. 4. (Spe
cial Telegram.) Cuming county re
publicans resent the tactics of the
democratic press of the state which
has been trying to make it appear
that leaders here are of pro-German
sentiment. In recent articles a
number have been specified with a
gross misrepresentation of the

German Financial Panic
Increased by Hoarders
London, Nov. 4. The Berlin
Vossische Zeitung, discussing the
financial panic in Germany, says it
is of a more stubborn character
and greater in extent than at the
outbreak of the war.
The newspaper says the vii
president of the Reiclis bank asst rt

warned the public that a cont.nua
tion of hoarding would mean tin
complete cessation of the eeonotnit
