Pacific States Almost Solid For the Nebraskan tEAST GETTING INTO LINE Bitter Antagonism Against Democratic Candidate No Longer ExistsWatch es and the Tariff The Attack on ForakerIts Probable Effect on Ohio Politics Indiana Safely Democratic By WILLIS J ABBOT So far as the Democratic campaign- Is concerned no one about national headquarters Is worried It is really amazing how strong is the feeling among Republicans that Mr Bryan Is sure to be elected One of the princi pal managers of the McKinley cam paign in 1000 called on me the other day and told me that there was no enthusiasm at all for Taft I cannot mention his name because he said that he personally would not this time vote for Taft for the reason that he did not believe that Mr Taft was fair y nominated by the Republican party I remember very well when this formant of mine was working like n slave In the speakers bureau of the Republican national committee This year he is staying away from that com mittee and is quietly saying that In the parts of the United States with which he is acquainted the Republic ans are going to vote for Bryan and Tern It so happens that I know much about this mans Interest in Republican polities Today he says that the Btdtes Jn which he is Interested Mon tana Idaho Washington and those along the Pacific coast are likely to- be absolutely Democratic when the campaign closes I only quote him because it has not been my good for tune to be In that part of the country of late months But he as a Re publican ought to know something about It and as a Republican says that the Pacific coast Is almost solid for Mr ps to the East At the moment I um writing Mr Bryan is speaking In New York am In adjacent states What the effect of hi speeches there may be can only ba de termined after the election is held believe and those who are associate with me believe that he Is going u wing New York New Jersey Connecticut uud Rhode Island We have come to the conclusion that there Is no longer arbiltoiw iutag OlugOlmt Bryan We believe that the people of the east have come to recognize iii him iv champion of the peoples cause We hold that as he has preached the moral and ethical end of politics he has grown anti developed as a leader of the American people Sometimes I think that Mr Bryan is less of a poll lclan than he Is a moral teacher When he devotes mouths of his time to lectures before Chautauqua asso ciations when he speaks Sunday after Sunday before a Prt LJvtClIuu or a Methodist church he is doing the kind of work that the ordinary politician never undertakes The politician goes gut to wake his speeches free trade pr the relations of the different de partments of the federal government to each other Mr Bryan talks about the Prince of Peace lie talks about the ethical and the moral phases of politics nut he talks to a Methodist assemblage with exactly the same ear nestness that he showswheu he speaks to an ordinary political gathering I it not probable that with all this work he has been doing Mr Bryan will have built up a new political following Is it not likely that whatever may be the activities of the Republican national committee the men and the women who have listened to Mr Bryan speaking on matters of this character will earnestly and enthusiastically support his candidacy I get much of this talk concerning what he has been do ing not in politics but In the higher type of religious and ethical work hi this country and I am very much clined to believe that what he has done Is likely to carry him through to complete success and to make him the next president of the United States Watch and Prey Over here In the United States we have awatch trust that preys upon the people Congressman Henry T Ralney of Illinois carries a watch which very curIously illustrates the prcklatoryvmethods of the watch trust It was offered by Charles A Keene a New York watch deader Independent- Of the trust to President Roosevelt refused by the president and accepted by Mr Rainey Engraved on the front case is the story of Its offering to the president and his refusal of it This Is how It readsHOME AND FOREIGN PRICES Waltham and Elgin Home Foreign

iiow marring public to the department of Justice at Washington pleading that the tryst be prosecuted under the antitrust law The Department of Justice Ignored ijiis appeal Of course watches are more or less the luxurious property of the more comfortable classes But at the seine time the situation exists with sewing machines with agricultural machinery With many kinds of tools which the 1QA1O

that very rea son there should ea determined ef fort on the part of the people to compel a reduction of the tariff on articles thus purveyed to foreign customers at less their the domestic price have reason to believe that even the Standard Qil company Is selling its product in Great Britain at less than It will sell it Here in our own country where It pumps the crude petroleum out of the bowels of the earth Everybody knows that the United States Steel company sells steel in foreign lands for less than it will sell it to our American shipyards And the one thing that enables these corporations to vade foreign markets for the profit of their own stockholders Is the tariff There Is profitTiapparent for the American people who have to pay the tariff tax Tafts fright on Foraker The attack made by Mr Hearst on Senator Foraker was vicious and yet at this moment of writing seems to have been supported by necessary evI- dence Personally I know nothing about the facts In the case rind I am as little fond of Foraker as of Hearst But I aih inclined to wonder whether the controversy arose from Mr Hearsts owu personally conducted po litical party or whether It was not In cited by Mr Taft himself or by his brother Charles P Taft The latter statesman is desirous of being the next senator from Ohio Naturally he sees that Mr Fpraker stands In his way Therefore he is willing to fight Voraker and to carry out what was said was the purpose of the Taft or ganization a year ago namely to elim- Inate Foraker from politics- It so happens that I know Mr Hearst moderately well and I am en tirely confident that he wpuld not hes itate for a moment to lend his aid to Charles P Taft if by sq gins lie could hurt either Mr Foraker or the Democratic national ticket The Ohio Outlook The effect of 4hls attack will be to- absolbtelydestroy the Republican par ty Tn Ohiothhi year It will destroy It not because the people of that state believe that the charges made against Senator Foraker are thoroughly well founded but because the Foraker fac tion in the state will believe as It does beliQve today that these charges were made by a mercenary of politics at the Incentive of Taffs own brother Per sonally I do not believe thafe Snator Foraker represents all that iajweet ness and light in politics but lib has QtJtecXji hlin fu tremendous ahtla devoted fol wIng In the state of Ohio rhls followlng will refuse tq believe that he Is in this particular incident guilty of any unlawful act They will believe that certain letters have been purloined by an agent of the Taft family from the files of the Standard Oil company and have been used for Forakers undoing The publication of these letters may undo Foraker Probably it will But it is mighty likely to undo Taft as well for there is no man In public life who has a more devoted personal fol- lowIng in his own state than Joseph B Foraker If it be made clear as it certainly will be that these letters were turned over to Hearst by someone closely associated with the Taft campaign you will find that the men who have marched wIth Foraker for years back will march Into their tents and permit Mr Taft to fight his battle himself This Isonly one of the many bitter quarrels among Republicans There are others in Indiana in Kansas in Wisconsin and in Minnesota But after all the real issue is likely to settle down upon this If Mr Roose velt Is to elect his successor as pres- Ident anti If Mr Taft Is to select his brother senator from Ohio anti if Mr Charles P TaftIs to be the dom inant factor In selecting the congres sional delegation from Ohio how far are we from imperialism and a hered itary monarchy What Happened In Indiana Everybody believes that Indiana Is going to bethis year a straight Dem ocratic state Of course belief does not mean proof But we have some proof that may possibly justify our belief For example only the other day it became necessary for the voters of Indiana to elect a number of members of the state legislature to fill vacancies which had been caused by death or by Inability of the regularly elected mem bers to serve There were five of these districts that were in the past solidly Republican Four of them this year returned Democratic candidates One which had a record of 2600 Republican majority this year dropped to 208 So much for Indiana But on the very day that this happened a promi nent Republican politician whom I have known for years and who has beenone of the principal managers of the Beveridge candidacy encountered me in Chicago He informed me that thestate of Indiana this year was nt most as safely Democratic as the state 6f TexaAnd he further declared that In hls travels throughout the Unlted States ho was convinced thtit the whole nation was this time goiny for Bryan rind itern And whatever may have been his purposepr his prejudice I find this to be truerthojt throughput the United States the great newspapers the met ropolitan newspapers of the

countyin quarrel over a game of cards in a blind tiger at Jackson in 1904 he killed Ben Hargis a brother of the late Judge Tames Hargis This caused ill feeling be tween the two families which was heightened when Cock ilI was ac quitted The following June Jim Cockrill a brother of Tom was fatally shot from a window in the I courthouse at Jackson The Hargis Cockrill fued was on with a vengeance A short time later Dr B D Cox an anti Hargis sympathizer was assassinated when leaving his home late one night This death was followed by the killing of J B Marcum a young lawyer Curt Jett and Tom White were tiled for the killing of James Cockrill Cox and Marcum were given life sentences in the penitentiary Judge James Hargis and Ed Callahau former Sheriff of Breathitt county were tried as accessories to these assassinations and were acquitted Judge Har gis had ouly succeeded in clearing his name of these charges when he was killed by his son Beech now LJ jail at Jackson and soon to be

being painted the picture of a man in the wide soft hat and boots affected by the mountaineer and likewise the belt and revolver usually worn by them This place was also known as The Bucket of Blood and the title was not mis applied The saloon gave the police daily trouble and was finally suppressed Cockrill then went to North Dakota and became a brake remainedethere until last fall when he was laid off because of the pans and returned to the Kentucky mount ains He did not go back to Jackson but took up his residence with his wifes people at Beattyville and opened a billard hall there This

army of employes into line for the Republican ticket Blanks are being distributed asking employes to indicate their political preference with the idea of bringing around those who signify their opposition to Taft In Ohio the blanks are the most numerous A copy of the typewritten notice which is being circulated among foremen by some of the higher employes follows In order to learn how the men yojrblank to fill out This will nut effect your position whatever regardless of how you vote For Taft For Bryan For Hisgin For Debs This is an innocent looking re quest on the face of it but the railroad men are aware that it is a hint to line up for Taft There is a tacit understanding among employes of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company that the corporation wants the Republican party to win and it is not neces sary for the company to issue a proclamation from the house tops in order to let those dependent on it for a livelihood know that it is expected ot them The idea prevailes among the raitroad men who have seen the same game pla ed before that the distribution of the blanks is the first step toward an active cain pajgn for Taft among employes- It developed some time ago that Republican managers were urging the railroad company to take this stepThis movement on the part of the company has created much in dignation among railroad men They take the position that their political afflictions are strictly per sonal matters and that the company has no right to try to find how a man is going to vote anymore than one has to enter a voters booth when he is making a ballot Many of the menare pre paredto keep mum regarding their choice for President In 1896 it was well known that the Pennsylvania Railroad desired the defeat of Bryan and similar notices were sent out at

authorizing costly experiments and consideringan extensive report on the subject Different methods of producing rain have been proposed at different time the main features being by extensive fires or by causing a severe concussion of the upper air Pof James P Epsey was the origi nator and for many years ardent advocate of the fire theory He was born in Pennsylvania but spent most of his adult lite in the West and died in Cincinnati in 1864 He maintained that extensive rains could be producad by exten sive forest fires in the tar West and he demonstrated it theoretical ly to the satisfaction of scientists His theory was that if the fires were continued for a suffcient length ot time they would cause an upward current of hot air which would certainly bring rain His theory was indorsed by European scientists and the distinguished French savant Aragosaid France has its Cuvier England its NewtonAmer- ica its Epsev He tried to get an appropriation front Congress to en able him to test his theory but failed In 1843 however he receiv ed fn appointment under the War Department and prosecutad his investigations in the Washington Observatory He was a man of real scientific attainments but his the cry was never fully tested In r891 a Chicago man named Gathman patented a methob of making rain by suddenly chilling the atmosphere by rapid evapora tion through the release of liquified carbonic acid gas This was never tested In 80 Gen Daniels Ruggles of Fredericksburg Va obtained patent on making rain by explo sions in the clouds the explosions to be by torpedoes from balloons He also Jailed to jret an appropia tion from Congress to test his plan but Senator Farwell of Illinois took it up and Succeeded in getting an appropriation of 7000 for carrying on the experimens The exper were carried on in ih the vicinity of Washington and in Texas At t le next session of Congress anoth appropriation of 10000 was made for the purpose of which about 5 000 was expended under the
