Lexington Dreamer Nominates Himself for President On Both Tickets. Robert G. fcoss. the political freak, who made Lexington famous, has put ill another bid for free publicity by tiling a petition in the secretary of state's office to have his name placed on the republican ticket as a candidate for president. Two weeks ago, he sent in to Secretary Pool a similar petition for the democratic primaries. ; Ross succeeded in getting on the. ballots of both parties four years ago, but a good many people are beginning to think that the joke has gone far enough. So far, oiobody has protested to the secretary of state against his name going on. It is reported that there will be protests from members of both , parties who object to making the primary ballot a farco. Twenty-eight names from Lexington are appended to Ross' republican -petition. Ray Anthony heads tho list of jokesters. W. O. Henry, of Omaha, has filed for the bull moose nomination for United States senator, through tho medium of F. P. Corrlck, state chairman, who is seeing to it that a candidate is brought out on that ticket for evnry office. State Senator J. R. Henry, of Howells, Is n democratic candidate for ro- hominntion in the Tenth district and Adam McMullen, of Wymore. is a re- ublican aspirant to the senate in tho district. In filing as a candidate for renom- ination. State Auditor Smith has given x our. a statement showing that-he helped to reduce the state tax levy for, 1915 by more than $400,000 and that his own 'department has been operated r.t nearly $4,000 per year less expense than under the preceding administration, although doing more work.- Mr.: Smith says: : · : ; ··. I .- "A candidate of the opposite- party for the nomination for governor, says that a?nong the things he favors is tax reduction and better public service. It that is a meritorious issue upon which-, to ask support for a nomination^ then the fact that taxes have been reduced and the service Improved should jiis: tify those who have worked with the present governor, Hon. John H. Morc- liead, to bring about just that kind of n change, in asking for a re-election. "As a candidate for state auditor rwo years ago I stated that it was my belief that tho public's affairs should be conducted along the .same line a.u individual would his own, and in fulfillment thereof it wns my privilege as a member of the state board of equali- sation and assessment to support a reduction of one mill in the state tax levy the past year, which reduction means a saving of $403,954.95 to the people of the state, or 34. cents for every man, woman and .child. . '· Economy In 'Office. "My own office has contributed its F-mall mite towards making possible this reduction, the expenditures in 3915, which was my first year in of-, lice, being $3,800 less than they were in 1913, although the department is now handling more work than ever before. During, 1915 we passed on claims nnd isjued warrants' in', the aggregate' sum oC $5,360,000, and-.a-'quarterly re-' port has been recompiled showing; just how every dollar has been spent, ;a report never heretofore issued. Bonds voted by the Various subdivisions of the state have been approved and registered in the sum' of $3,490,000, as compared to $4,500.000 during the pre- ioiis two years. Every county treasury m tho state has been checked once within eight months from the time r.-e took charge of the department, whereas in the past the legislature had been asked to provide an additional examiner that the state m|ght !;e covered onco in a year. The trust companies, which are under the supervision of the auditor, have; been checked by a regular employe of the department and the les, aggregating $520 in 1915.-were .turned into the etato treasury; wiiereas In- the-past a special examiner had been "designated to do the work and he received all the Tees-for his services. The: books and affairo of the metropolitan water district of Omaha are being audited in accordance with tho provisions of n. law Miacted by the las,t legislature, at en expense to the district, of less than one-half what it has cost to have the work done in the past, and the fees thus earned will likewise be turned into the state treasury. "This in part is what we have done tho past' year, and it it is in accord with the public opinion of what, an officer should do t shall ask for a re- uomlnatlon and election.' 1 Federal Expert Reports On Work * Done in This State A letter to Governor Morehead from 1 A. D. Melvin, chief-of the federal bureau of animal industry, reviews the work that has'been done by United, States government Inspectors in eradicating scabies among catlle In west-; ern and northwestern Nebraska, and asks that the state employ an adequate number of veterinary workers to assist in stamping out the disease completely. Melvin says tht nine infected; herds have been located by federal inspectors during the months of January and February, six of them being in tho southern part of Cherry county and three in Grant county. Some infection was also found in'Banner county, the letter states. . -. . ''Scabies became prevalent in .the, western and northwestern counties ·when the federal government in thfe fall of 1914 had to withdraw its inspectors, from this state in .order to 'control the foot and. mouth disease in the eastern states. Prior to that time, "the whole of Nebraska; had been released from quarantine-against scab. It has since been necessary to restore the Quarantine against some fifteen counties, particularly those in the territory surrounding: Alliance. At this time, seven government veterinarians are working in Nebraska. Chief Melvin strongly, urges that a rigid state quarantine be declared against infected herds or localities until the animals can be dipped.

' Mr. Bryan lias declared that lie would not participate actively in the controversy and his closest friends here say he has no Intention of chahs'- ing" '*his · mind. His--views are well known,'-however, 'and" they arc being repeated industriously to members of the house. He leaves Washington again-tonight for Wilmington, N. C., to deliver a lecture. Luncheon Date Discussed. Although Mr. .Bailey lias insisted that no significance should be attached to the luncheon, engagement, it was discussed verywhere with great interest. Among the members who live at the hotel are Speaker Clark nnd Representative Shackleford, the unofficial leader of the warning resolution advocates in the house. "Mr. Bryan is very plain spoken about his views on'the warning- resolution," said Representative Stephens yesterday, "but he will not start an open fight. At his request I introduced a resolution ,atj the opening of congress to warn Americans" off ships and he.'still stands for it. Why should we beat the devil about the busli on this proposition? It is weak- kneed to try to dodge the" real issue. The proposed vote on the McLemore proposition is not what the president wants nor it is not what we friends of a warning resolution want, so why should we vote on it?"

French officers predict General Petain's strategy will have the same result so that the Germans will be compelled to seek a decision somewhere else on the front The Germans in their assaults are using several sorts of burning liquid projectors: One of these is in the form of a small tank, which is carried on the back filled with a composition which seems to be mostly kerosene. Attached to the nozzle -is an igniting apparatus. The liquid is projected: by means of a hand pump. The radius of action of the oil depends on the skill and the physical effort of the man who projects it, but it is ordinarily from sixty to ninety feet. Some French soldiers have been burned to a crisp by ilie flaming liquid. Other chemical weapons used by the Germans in this battle included asphyxiating shells, vapors, which irritate the eye, and; incenOiary shells.

In front of the village of-Vaux alone, 4.000 German corpses were counted after the eighth unsuccessful attempt. This part of the battle, although overshadowed by the fight for Dpuaumont, is regarded in Paris as. a serious check 'for the attackers. The Germans carried on the assault with great courage until the dead lay thick on the field. Then the officers, it is said, were compelled to urge on the troops, as they clambered over ; the corpses of their fallen comrades for the last assaults. The attack on "Vaux began on the evening of March 2, after' a furious shelling, and continued until the following nij?ht. Columns of Germans advancing simultaneously from the north and northwest tried '.. to. envelope the village. French artillery immediately opened a heavy fire,-- which separated the first wave of Germans"from-.their reinforcements. Nevertheless. ..the fresh troops came, on;'"and'.-'.observers!' saw plainly the' "tragic -'spectacle'' of Hues of men lunging into that storm of steel and emerging thinned to half their strength.
