Labor Day Proclamation Calls
v Upon All to Recognize
Lincoln, Sept. 4. (Special.) A
plea against class strife and agitation
and for the mutual recognition of
diverse economic interests is voiced
by Governor McKelvie in his proc
lamation calling for the observance
of Monday, September 6, as Labor
v The governor says: I
"I am pleased to call attention to
Labor day, Monday, September 6.
This is a legal holiday and should
be fittingly observed.
"Labor is one of the essential
components of an economic union
which may be aptly compared to the
urtion of states. It has certain priv
ileges and rights that must not be
abridged, but it must act in con
sonance and harmony with the com
mon welfare. It cannot withdraw
from the union, neither can it stand
he principle of an indosolute
union among the states has been sd
long established that no one would
question it. The same will be ulti
mately true of the economic union.
When this comes about it will be
recognized that-the interests pf the
whole people are paramount to those
of any 'section, faction, class or
gronp, that the force of law is more
just and equitable than the force of
arms and that co-operation is far
more productive of benefits than
agitation and strife. ;
"I am deeply grateful that labor
conditions inj Nebraska during the
past year have partaken so liberaly
of peace and prosperity. Employe
and employer have settled their dif
ferences amicably thus producing the
minimum of inconveniences and loss
to the public. This is at is should
be and it makes Labor day this year
an , especial occasion for rejoicing '
."Therefore, I, Samuel McKelvie,
governor of the state of Nebraska,
do hereby declare and proclaim
Monday, September 6, a legal holi
day and recommend that it be so
observed by all the people and the
departments of the state.

Reports to Trade and Com
merce Department Show 25
Per Cent Increase
Lincoln, Neb., Sept. 4. (Spe
cial.) Seventy-four building and
loan associations of Nebraska show
total resources of $77,939,337, ac
cording to a report by Secretary J.
E. Hart of the department of trade
and commerce, on conditions July 1.
The reserve funds aggregate $2,108,
807. Mr. Hart makes this comment on
the building and loan companies:
"Loans show an increase of 25 per
cent over the 1919 report and cash
on hand shows a decrease of 36 per
cent. The total resources and liabili
ties when compared with the 1919
report show an increase of $12,161,
277.84, or 18 per cent.
uovernment, state and munici
pal securities show a large decrease,
indicating that the stringency has
caused the associations to part with
large blocks of those securities in
order to accommodate the demands
of their customers.
"The year's activities of the associ
ations as shown by receipts and dis
bursements show an increase of ap
proximately 50 per cent over those
of the 1919 report and reflects in a
way the increased valuations and
larger loan operations. ' Stock and
dividend withdrawals have been
large and show an increase of 30 per
cent, but this does not equal the gain
in receipts for stock account which
show a gain of 41 per cent over the
previous year. The entire report is
an indication of thrift and shows that
the patrons of these associations
have added to their deposits during
the year the sum of $11,763,505.32.
Nebraska ranks very high in the
volume of 6usiness transactions of
its associations and the efficiency in

are coming what shall I do?' she
"She wanted me to go, but I didn't
want to. She offered to take respon
sibility for the killing.
"I didn't want to leave her there
alone with the body, though, so I
helped pack in into the trunk and
then we carried the trunk upstairs
to the Nott apartment." ,
Hit Him With Pipe.
. Describing the murder, Wade, ac
cording to the stenographic report,
entered as evidence, said he first
struck Nott with, the pipe as he lay
in bed; that Nott jumped up and
they grappled. Wade then shot at
Nott, but missed, and thev rolled
down-one flight of stairs together.
On the first landine Wade shot
again three times while he beat Nott
over the head.
Medical Examiner Samuel Gar-
lick tstified that Nott could not have
struggled down the stairs as alleged
in Wade's story. He said that Nott
had been deprived of fighting
strength by a blow before he got
out of bed. He also said that more
than one knife was used.
After feading police statements,
Mrs. Nott was again called to, the

in striking contrast to the almost
debonnaire bearing of the men ac
cused with her.
On Wedding Anniversary.
She testified that today was her
wedding anniversary, she having
married Nott 14 years ago. She
said she had seen the knife pre
viously referred to "on the ice
chest;" also, that she recognized the
revolver, the lead pipe she refused
to identify on advice of counsel.
It is said that Wade will plead
insanity. He also is attempting to
introduce a suggestion that Nott
threatened to "get" him.
.According to a statement previ
ously dictated to a stenographer by
Mrs. Nott, Johnson had nothing to
do with the murder, other than ac
companying Wade to fhe , house.
Today's testimony brought out the
fact that it was Johnson who first
told of two trunks figuring in the
crime. One, used for a blind, was
taken to the home of Mrs. Dolly
Downing at 1081 Stratford avenue,
at the same time the murder trunk
was being carr.ied to the swamp.

Milwaukee, Sept. 4. The direct
charge that Will H. Hays, chairman
of the republican national commit
tee, had "deliberately perpetrated a
falsehood under oath" at Chicago
in denying statements regarding a
campaign quota list was made today
by Governor Cox, democratic presi
dential candidate, in his address at
the state fair grounds.
"I charge that there is a quota,"
said Governor Cox, referring to the
senate committee's investigation.
"And I charge, that Mr. Hays de
liberately perpetrated a falsehood
under oath when he said there was
uot a quota."
Governor Cox also declared tnai
conferences scheduled at Marion, O.,
between Senator Harding, the re
publican candidate and members of
the republica ways and means com
mittee had been called off because
he, Governor Cox, had "exposed the
plot to buy the presidency."
The governor's declarations came
as the climax of his fair grounds
speech, but in a clamor which made
them almost indistinguishable except
to those nearby.
The, soeech was interrupted by
cries from parts of the crowd which
could not hear the candidate. The
governor was forced to cut his
speech short on the brief reference
to Mr. Hays and the Marion confer

while the speaker was discussing the
