Women Are Represented.
"I see no good purpose that could
'" be served 'Ji seating the delegates of
H; the convention held yesterday," said
-: Mr. Harmon. the Bryan delega-;:-tion
named women because there is
a militant women's democratic or-
1, ganization in Lancaster county.
il-.r "Mr. Harmon made his speech
... because he had been told that Mr.
.ii Bryan would bolt the convention if
his delegation was not seated," was
H the retort of J. S. McCarty, one of
Jj;;the protestants.
.: Mr. Harmon further explained
: : that he sought to have obtained the
' jdaming of C. W. Tool on the Lan
iliiaster delegation because he wanted
Pool named as chairman of the new
State central committee. .
; In presenting the report of the
. , credentials committee, Chairman
Kavanaugh said: "We were unatii
: mous in our report, but personally I
!!.would like to rebuke some of the
" things that were done in the conven
tions that elected delegates. The leg
": islature that inflicted this infamous
: law on us should be ashemed."
Delegates Are Divided.
; Mat Miller of David City objected
' allowing Douglas and Lancaster
.l. icounties to have double sets of dele-
gates, each delegate having half of a
IX vote. The chair did not approve his
point of order,
'i.j ; When the smoke had cleared
" away, Douglas was allowed 166 and
I;.', Lancaster 46 delegates.
!; A bit of humor occurred when Q
Campbell, secretary of the state
:: central committee, roce from a seat
jji'yto a point of order and was de-
clared out of order because he was
Hi;, not a delegate.

Bryan's' Move Overruled.
hen the resolutions committee
was announced during the closing
moments of the afternoon session
Mr. Bryan moved that the state
candidates be declared honorary
members of the committee, his
thought being that the candidates
should have a voice in the prepara
tion of the platform inasmuch as
they will be expected to make a
campaign on it. After a roar from
the delegates, Mr. Bryan withdrew
his motion.
Mat Miller of David City asserted
that it would be wrong to hampei
the resolutions committee in its de
liberations on matters which tran
scend any interests the candidates
mav have.
"If the candidates do not like the
resolutions and platform, let them
stand aside," said Mr. Miller.
E. A. Gaufal of David City de
clared that Mr. Bryan's idea was in-
visable and out of order.

insistence upon selecting its own
members of the platform committee
nut the convention in a turmoil tor
half an hour. James Walsh, against
whom the protest was directed, un
dertook to pour oil on the troubled
water by volunteering to withdraw.
Douglas county delegates, re
inforced by some outstate groups,
insisted on a motion for the selec
tion of the entire committee by dis
trict caucuses. On a roll call this
wa defeated, 292 to 473.
The platform committee was then
appointed by Chairman McDonald.
In appointing the committee, he
recounized the wish of the Omaha
delegates. The 15 members were: P.
James Cosgrave of Lincoln, James

Applaud Governor McKelvie.
Durine the interims while await
ing committee reports the conven
tion listened to speeches by Gov
ernor McKelvie and by Mrs. McCar
ter of Topeka, Kan., representing
the national committee.
"The republican party of Nebras
ka need apologize to no one,", said
the governor. "Every pledge it
made was redeemed by its legisla
ture and state officers. No act of
any cpnsiderable importance,-committed
by its representatives in of
fice in Nebraska, can be con
demned." The governor pointed oat that
increased state appropriations have
been due to necessary expenditures
for improved roads, schools, state
institutions and a new capitol. The
civil administrative code, he said,
was simply a return to fundamental
principles of government.
Mrs. McCarter won great applause
and laughter when she referred to
President Wilson as one who "kept
us out of war, out of peace and
out of everything else, including
sugar." She declared that -women
voters can achieve results only
through adherence to party organ
ization. Burlington Road Resumes

Agents Threatened
U:S. Senator With
Death and Disgrace
Washington, May 18. Charles E.
Jones, former Department of Jus
tice agent, today charged Mexican
agents in the United States with
having threatened disgrace and
death to Senator Fall of New Mex
ico, chairman of the senate commit
tee investigating Mexican affairs,
and to VV. M. Hanson one of
Chairman Fall's assistants. '
Mr. Jones, who made his charges
before the Mexican committee, said
Raymond P. DeNegri, former Mex
ican consul general in New York,
had told htm last fall that "they
(Fall and Hanson) will be shot very
soon.". DeNegri added, Jones said,
that he had "a man in New York
now to fix them." .
The former Mexican consul gen-
in the
s sajrtreji
eral, according to Jones, also assert
ed that "Americans having tremen
dous political influence with the
United States administration are as
sisting" in efforts to disgrace the
Fall committee.
Jones said he also was told to
watch "Washington tor something
to drop" in the matter. Most of
the conversations reported were al
hired to have taken nlace in New
York during November, 1919.

The Value of Sane Merchandising
(Selling good$ of known quality at fair and sensible prices)-
To the People of this Community
Resorting to the sensational never I im
proves the quality or desirability of the
merchandise offered.
- Your first consideration when contemplat
ing a purchase should be "Do I need this
article and does it satisfy me in every
particular?" "
If you buy on the basis o price alone
too often you are doomed to dis
appointment. Good judgment dictates ie advisability
; of knowing that the good: in question are
of the best possible qualty for the price
asked. Common sense shows clearly that
price is only relatively important.
RigKt principles are right for all times
and it has been our experience dur-
ing mrw-jour years of
in Omaha,
that quality counts first, above all other
considerations and that the consequent
pleasure in ownership and lasting satis
faction one gains through choosing quality
will offset in a happy manner any slight
and seeminjrlv advantageous difference

Russia Orders Arrest
Of Zionist Delegates
As National Enemies
' Moscow, May 18. Seventy-five
delegates and alternates to the A11
Russian Zionist congress which met
here last April have been arrested,
according to a statement issued by
the extraordinary commission to
day. It is asserted that the extra- '
ordinary secrecy observed regard
ing the meeting and the fact that,!
large proportion of those present
were not connected with the Zion
ist movement, led to the arrests.
Investigation, it is alleged, has re
suited in the discovery of compro
mising documents revealing clost
contact with entente countries.
Charges are made that many bolnbfc
have been found in the. office of the"
central Zionist committee.
