cial.) The Loup Valley , Jiditorial
Association, ' at its meeting here,
adopted resolutions stating that or
4he immediate future a conservative
line in the economy of publishing is
-absolutely necessary, and because in
creased prices in subscriptions and
advertising did not reach the average
in' other lines, corresponding reduc
tions, either in time or in amount,
could not be looked for. :
."In the face of these conditions,"
the resolution adds, the public should
not expect the printers' prices, which
cid not advance, to be reduced in the
saoie manner as merchandise which
fluctuated with the ma'rkct price."
Itie resolutions also urged members
to "exclude all doubtful stock promo
tion and similar advertising, which
tends to lower the ethics of our call
ing." A living wage for all publishers'
employes was urged, but the demand
for a 44-hour week, at a time when,
country publishers are compelled''
work from 10 to 14 hours, a-d&y, was
regarded as not oniyitftimclybut
impossible of endorsement. ? . i .

tion of the state .association plan in
promotion of -officers "and nominated
f . R.' Webster of SV Paul for presi
dent for the ensuing year. xHis elec

The Riot Is the Most Significant
Fact in the Election
General Leonard Wood said the courthouse riot was the
result of an organized effort.
John W. Towle, foreman of the grand jury which investi
gated the riot, said it is his firm conviction that the crime
for which the negro was lynched was never committed.
The negro was not a prisoner of the POLICE DEPART
MENT. He was in the hands of the SHERIFF. The
sheriff had been advised and urged by the police to re
move this negro from Omaha, but this advice was ignored.
The prisoner was dressed differently from any other in
the jail. . ,
The sheriff was a friend and political co-worker of Den
The man who was with the girl at the alleged committing
of the crime was a cousin of the man who today is running
Dennison's campaign er Dahlman and Dunn. He could
not be found at the investigation by the grand jury.
After the downtown riot was over more than a hundred
, of the thugs and criminals who had been imported: to
carry out the riot went to the police station "to clean it
r out." They would have done so, but for the timely ap
pearance of federal troops.
If it was an organized effort, as Towle and General Wood
say, it was for the sole purpose of discrediting the Oma
ha police department. v
,Who could it have been that was willing to commit organ
ized arson and murder to discredit the Ringer police
Ringer may hot have handled the riot as well as many
who had no responsibility think he should, but ask your
selves, good citizens of Omaha, is that any reason for
turning back the police force into the hands of the ungod
ly crew" who in all human probability were responsible
If not, vote the straight Good Government Ticket.
If you don't want these enemies
of the Omaha police department
to get control of the city govern
ment, vote for these men:
