This is in substance the condition
rf things, according to Congressman
C. F. Reavis, who is in Lincoln and
spoke at the banquet of ,the Young
Men's Rapublican club and will,

Demos are Active.
Nebraska is a dominant factor in
the national capital," said Mr.
Reavis. "This pertains especially to
the democrats.'. Carter Glass and
Secretary Daniels have jnduced Sen
ator Hitchcock to allow petitions
naming him for the democratic nom
ination for the presidency to be cir
culated in Nebraska. The senator
was at first just a little reluctant.'but
Glass and Daniels were successful
in inducing him1 to allow the peti
tions to be circulated in order to
force the hand of Bryan and compel
him to play the administration gam:;
and get into line for Hitchcock or
come out squarely against him as a
delegate to the convention.
. "The speech of Bpyan at the Jack-
1 son (Jay banquet, followed by his
attack upon Governor Edwards of
New Jersey, because of the gover-
: nor's remarks that he would make
the United States as wet as the At
lantic ocean, hasjinspired the pro-
' hibition forces oi the country to
get behind Bryan, and his strength
has grown to such proportions that
it has become necessary to tie Bry
an up, if possible, for the adminis
Committeeman Big Question.

safd Mr. Reavis, "figures largely in,

deal to do with the matter."
Reading a newspaper report that
he had been selected by a confer

a candidate for the republican nomi
nation for ttie.vice presidency, Mr.
"I wonder where they got that
dope. It is the first time I ever
heard of it. I am a candidate for
congress, and no other office."

No Serious Damage Is
Expected From Hessian Fly
Lincoln, Neb., Feb. 12. (Special.)
Although a general alarm has
been sounded by the United States
Di'partm. nt of Agriculture to the
effect that !ie Hessian fly threatens
the 1920 winter wheat crop, Prof.
M. il. Swcnk, Nebn.ska state ento
mologist, anticipates no serious
damage in this statJ this year. It
is true, Prof. Swenk said, that in
dications I'oint to ati increase in the
lly, jiid serious dampge may result
from its ravages in two or three
years. Weather and other condi
tions may have some effect on the
extei.t of this injury.
1 he Hessian lty goes in waves or
cycles. This cycle wasvat a high
mark in 1913, when damase was se
rious in this state. The damace in
1916r 1917, 1918 and 1919 was un
important, the fly reaching the low
est pouit of the cycle last fall, and
it is now on the increase.
