President Taft's state, where it is having- one of its hardest fights. He made a campaign trip over the state severely attacking Ohio's democratic governor, Judson Harmon, and defending the policies of the republican party. Of the republican candidates and the state platform he had little to say. Colonel Roosevelt made his first speech in Ohio at Toledo, after briefly speaking at several points in Indiana, telling the crowds which gathered at the Etation that Senator Beveridga should be re-elected. From Toledo he came to Cleveland, stopping at a number of places for talks from the platform of his car. Cleveland celebrated when the colonel came, with a parade. The rally ~was held in the central armory. Concerning the Insurgents. In speaking today in Ohio, where the so-called insurgent wing of the republican' party was defeated in the struggle to control the party. Colonel Roosevelt used much the same arguments as those which he advanced : yesterday in Iowa, where the progressives are in control. Of Warren G. Harding, republican candidate for governor, he said: "If Mr. Harding is elected you will have a governor who will put through a public utilities bill."' This was all the colonel had to say of Mr. Harding. The republican state platform, which endorses Taft for renommation in President 1912. r Roosevelt. He spoke of it long enough to criticize the tariff plank which contains a strong endorsement of the Tayne^Aldrich tariff bill, saying that the party leaders who framed it had lagged behind the people. Colonel Roosevelt also defined new nationalism in his speech here and said that he was certain the people wo.uld eventually accept the principles which it stood for. In the midst of an attack on Governor Harmon, Mr. Roosevelt was interrupted by repeated calls from the audience: "How about Balliuger?" The colonel stopped his speech abruptly and shouted, "He is not run- n i n g for office in Ohio." This answer did not satisfy his audience and the calls were repeated. Finally Roosevelt stopped again, and after waiting a. moment for quiet, he Kind, waving his arm emphatically: "If I ever ask you to vote for him you can coma and ask me questions." Scoring for Harmon. A severe personal attack on Governor Judson Harmon of Ohio was made by Theodore Roosevelt at Toledo. Colonel Roosevelt said Governor Harmon in Ills connection with the Cincinnati. Hamilton Dayton railroad, of which hu was receiver, had not performed his duty to the state faithfully. Colonel Roosevelt's address was delivered in the Valentine theatre. Ho began his address by saying that in the democratic press there has appeared today a telegram addressed to him and sent "apparently on Governor Harmon's behalf by Mr. Powell. a former democratic candidate for governor. The telegram read: "Governor Judson Harmon is the same Judson Harmon who, as special counsel, traced the crime ot rebating to Paul Jlorton, resigning when you refused to proceed against this mem- to fix,rates, a combination against spirit, and apparently so against trie -letter of the law. The road did not .pay its taxes to the state ot.Ohio. 'hitherto, escaping several ·· hundrssO thousand dollars of such taxes 011 the'pleu, among others, of insolvency. "Mr; jHarmoii became governor, but continued his position as receiver for the road at a salary of 525,000 and governor at a. salary of $10,r00. His service to his two clients, the state of Ohio and the AVail street-owned railroad appear to have been about in proportion to the respective salaries they paid him. For eight months he continued in this position, getting about 516,000 from the railroad and about $7,000 for the state. "During this time he claims as one of his reasons for justification that the railroad was insolvent it should not pay the taxes to the officials, "but it was not too insolvent to pay him his salary as receiver of the railroad." What Harmon Claimed. Colonel Roosevelt /said Governor Harmon asserted "he knew nothing of the evasion of taxes, of the rebating and the combination of the road with other railroads. "If that is so," he continued, "what did he mean by accepting the position of receiver and drawing a salary of $25,000 a year? If he drew a salary , like that it was his business to make himself thoroughly acquainted with what the road under him. was doing and especially to see to it 'that it did nothing illegal and that it paid its just debts to the state." The colonel said Governor Harmon had aserted he did not want to continue as. receiver of the road, but that the judge would not allow him to give up the work. "If Govenwr Harmon" had not wanted to remain as receiver," said Colonel Roosevelt, "no judge in the land could have forced him to remain." , ^ The colonel then referred to the public utilities bill defeated in the Ohio legislature last winter, against which, he said, the democrats in the legislature stood almost solidly. "Governor Harmon protested that he knew nothing about it," said Colonel Roosevelt, "and by his supine attitude and failure to take a stand he brought about its defeat".'' He declared the author of the bill had charged publicly that the governor knew all about it and that he himself had gone over it with the,governor. He asserted that, although the governor said he was against petty graft, he had appointed two office men who had proved guilty of the graft which he denounced in Others and that he had on the ticket with him one such man, who had confessed and made restitution to the state. Colonel Roosevelt left for Cleveland as soon as he had concluded. Misses Crowd at Chicago. CHICAGO, Nov. 5.--Colonel Rooae- velt came to Chicago today, remained in the city thirty-live minutes and left for the east with his presence here unknown save to a few persons. On his way east from Des Moines, Colonel Roosevelt studied th'e train schedules and found that by stopping at Englewood, a residence district, .wcjl within, the city, but sqme miles *Crdtii i 'thS rt fltmi{'owff district"h'e''tould connect with the Lake Shore train which is to carry him to Toledo.

'. -.OJIAHA, Neb., Nov. 5.--The walls of 'the Omaha auditorium have in times past rung: with the eloquence of Theodore Roosevelt and the argumentative addresses of President Taft, and at such times these men have filled the great building to Its capacity, but never was there such a crowd gathered there as congregated tonight to listen to William J. Bryan discuss the issues of the present campaign. As early as 6 o'clock the people commenced to gather In the building and in less than an hour it -was packed to suffocation. AVhen Mr. Bryan appeared at S o'clock it is estimated that 10,000 persons were present and at least 2,000. outside seeking admittance, which was Impossible, as every seat and every inch of standing room was occupied. And such a crowd there was, men and women from every walk in life. Men oi all political parties were there, and-as the speaker of the evening entered and .stepped upon the platform Tie was given an ovation that continued for several minutes, tne people standing upon their feet, tne men cheering and the women waving their handkerchiefs. Without an introduction Mr. Bryan launched out upon his subject. . He endorsed all of the candidates upon the democratic state ticket excepting James C. Dahlman, the candidate for governor. Time and again tie was cheered. Draws Line on Dahlman. Helative to Dahlman, without mincing matters, Mr. Bryan stated that he is not the candidate of the democratic party, but rather the candidate 'of the srewers and the liquor interests. He stated that no consistent democrat could vote lor him, nor could any other man who favored law and order. Upon the subject of county option. Mr. Bryan told the Omaha people that no matter what the state might do, it need not sffect this city, for if the people did not want it they could vote t down. The people i\ere told that Dahlman was nominated by a convention that was not controlled by the democrats, but was dominated by the liquor Interests; that Iiis nomination was forced upon the public by republicans who were in sympathy with, the liquor traffic and against county option.

Me.inwhilo a group of newspaper men and a number of others i\ere awaiting the Roosevelt train at the station downtown. KBNDALVILLE, Ind., Nov. 5.--Ex- President Roosevelt took a hand in Indiana politics us he rode across the state today. , When lie arrived at Elkhart, he found a crowd waiting for him at the station and made a short speech from his car. He- urged the people, as he did in his speeches in the state last month,, to support Senator Bcveridge in his fight for reelection. "The whole country is watching Indiana," said the colonel. "Senator Beveridge," he declared, "stood for the best things in progressive republican politics, and his defeat would be a repudiation by the people of an honest public servant." Janies R. Garfield got on the train at Elkhart. Walter F. Browne of Toledo, chairman of the republican state central committee and A. J. Gar- 1'ord of Elyria. met Colonel Roosevelt in Chicago. already bitter feeling against Dahlman, and as a result 100 men who 'heretofore have remained passive have announced that from now on they will devote the whole of their time until the polls close Tuesday night working for the election of AHlrich. More than a dozen ot the protestant preachers stated tonight that in their pulpits tomorrow they would offer prayers for the election of Aldrich and the "defeat of Dahlman. The Liquor Question.

The colonel said that Mr. Harmon failed completely to trace the crime of rebating to Mr. Morton. The attorney general, Mr. Moody, Mr. Roosevelt paid, declared Mr. Harmon had produced no evidence to justify his recommendation of action against Mr. Morton. Mr. Harmon, he said, proposed to indict Mr. Morton any way, "apparently on the theory that evidence might subsequently be found that would connect Mr. Morton with misconduct." Colonel Boosevelt went on to say that he had sustained the attorney general's opinion directing him to lay all the evidence on which Mr. Har- jnon made his recommendation before the court. Brought to Democratic Judge. "The case was brought up before a democratic nudge, Judge Phillips," Colonel Roosevelt continued, "and in his opinion from the bench he specifically and absolutely justilieii tho course of the attorney general, stating that there was no evidence in tho case, that in any way applied to Mr, Morton." Saying Mr. Harmon had brought to discredit an annocent men, Colonel Roosevelt took up the receivership ot the Cincinnati, Hamilton Dayton, which he said was owned in \Vfill street, "it being one of the Morgan properties, and the Morgan people, or which ever interest it was in ·\Vall atroet, applying to have their jnend, Mr. Harmon, made receiver. · l i e received a salary of $25,000 a yenr."

' It hns been shown i h a t the road in n combination with other roada i L i n c o l n Grappled AVHli. CLEVELAND, O.. Nov. 5.--Colonel Roosevelt, speaking at a meeting here tonight, said: "During the last few years it has become increasingly evident to all really far-sighted men that it is imperatively necessary to grapple with the problems of- the present day in tho spirit in which Abraham Lincoln and the men of his day, fifty years ago, grappled with the then existing problems. We. cannot show ourselves the true heirs of Lincoln and his fe'lows by merely praising what they did in the dead past; the sincerity of our loyalty to their ideals must be shown by the resolute efficiency with which we apply those ideals to present-day needs, working in a sanely progressive spirit, not being misled into following wild experiments any more than Lincoln was misled, bu't being equally resolute to follow Lincoln's coursu in refusing to put out destiny in the hands of the Bourbon and the. reactionary. Much alarm--some of it sincere, some of it entirely insincere-has been expressed about the new nationalism. The new nationalism really means nothing but the efficient application to new conditions of the old and fundamental moralities, in accordance with which our forefathers worked in the days when they founded this re- pjblic; in accordance with which our fathers worked in the cla^s when they saved the republic. We are trying to apply to the economic and social conditions of the twentieth century the doctrine which Abraham Lincoln enunciated fifty-one years ago, when he said: 'Our opponents hold the liberty of one man to be absolutely nothing when In conflict with another man's right of property; we, oi the contrary, are for both tho man and the dollar; but, in case, of conflict, the man before tho dollar.' In other words, as I said in my Osawatomie speech, and as I repeated in New York, the now nationalism represents t h e .struggle of freemen tci gain and to hold the right of self- government P.K against t h e special interest*, who twist the methods of free government Into the machinery for defeating the popular will. At every stage siMi ,nrler aii .'ircnmstunc-es the essencr of the struggle is to equalize opportunity, to destroy prlvi'epe and to j?i\e to I he life and citizenship of every I n d i v i d u a l I he highest possible v;i"lue. both to himself arid to the oom- moime.iltb llnnest. t i m i d , men m a v sues, following the lino of his Ian- coin speech. He concluded with a statement of his position on the state situation as follows: "First--The liciuor question would not have been in this campaign but tor the liquor interests. When at the last regular session of the legislature they defeated the resolution submitting the initiative and referendum, and when later they prevented the calling of a special session to submit the initiative and referendum, now endorsed by all parties, they forced the liquor question to the front as the paramount issue, and as Omaha's three senators could have secured the submission of the initiative and referendum by voting for it. Omaha's liquor interests are responsible for tho fact that we are now confronted with this question. "Second--County option does not in- terlere with the saloon business in Douglas county. Under county option the saloons will not be interfered with in any county so long as tho majority of the people of the county desire saloons. Nobody supposes that under county option · Douglas county would go dry. "Third.--Instead of the state try- Ing t« force saloons out of Douglas county, Douglas county is trying to force saloons into other counties that might, if gi.-en the privilege, vote the saloons out. This attempt on the part of Douglas cou-ity to compel other countUs to permit saloons against their will is likely to provoke retaliation. I t Douglas county ia not willing to let other counties v o t e ' o u t the saloon she cannot complain If other counties object to her keeping saloons. "Fourth--Only your brewers, distillers and wholesale liquor dealers are pecuniarily interested in defeating county option, and even they cannot be injured if, as they say, the refusal to license saloons increases the sale of liciuor. Can Omaha afford to array herself against the 'people of the state merely to please her brewers, distillers and liquor dealers? "Fifth--County option does not mean state prohibition. It will delay state prohibition instead of hastening it- Take the case of Ohio for instance. Ohio has county option, notwithstanding her large cities and the. large German element in her population. No attempt is being made to repeal county option; no party is demanding its repeal, and no effort is being made to secure state prohibition in Ohio. "Sixth--County option does not give loo large a unit. No c o u n t y outside of Douglas contains as many people as umaha, and yet, tho whole of Omaha is the u n i t in acting upon the liquor question. N'o county excepting Douglas and Lancaster has as many people as the rilv of Omaha, and yet, Lincoln acts .-IB'a u n i t in de- ·Idirig tlie liquor q u o K t i o n . The, eity of Chicago is larger in area than our '.vcrage. county and yet. It can act as a u n i t . AV'hether population or area s considered, no logic-ill argument can be made, again.t the county IIH ;\ u n i t . majority of tho democrats who voted at the primaries. His nomination was forced upon the party by tho votes of thousands of wet republicans who entered our "primary and added their votes to the votes of a minority of the democrats. "Eighth--Mr. Dahlman is not r u n - ning on the democratic platform. Ho announces thathe will veto u. county option bill, although tha last democratic state convention by a vote 01 038 to 202 refused to,condemn county option. He also announces that he will sign a bill repealing- the daylight saloon law, notwithstanding the fact that the last democratic state convention endorsedv.the .daylight saloon law by a vote -ol 710 to 1C3. Tho democratic party^ polled more than 130,000 votes two- yetCrs ago while Mr. Dahlman polle'U ohiy 27,891. Subtract from uVtr. · Dkhlman's vote the thousands-of "wet | republicans , who voted for him aaiOEho will have less than one-fifth ot'^lfe .democratic vot'a of the state.' A \fcanilldate receiving Lis nomination · asATr. Dahlman did his, and receiving-." so, small a percentage of the democratic vote, cannot repudiate thejpjatform, make the liquor question the^sble issue and then claim tlie 'support! of ^democrats on tho ground of vesularjlt^. v " £ Dahlman's Petition Unsafe. "Mr. Dahlman's fcorftlon in this campaign presents Jan issue surpassing even the county option issue and the daylight salotm- 1 " issue. The issue presented by his candidacy is whether the liquor interests r shall control this state. No official should be expected to resist the influences \ipon which he relies for nomination and election, and Mr. Dahlman is too honest to accent the governorship at the hands of tlv: liquor interests · and then oppose tho program of the liciuor interests. It he carries out the program of the liquor interests, the liquor question will be more acute two years from now than it is now, tot"the party will have to endorse or repudiate the action of the administration on this subject--and-that, too, during a oresi- dential campaign. ·· "The liquor interests put the liquor question above everything elso. They have no Interest in other questions"; they ignore national issues and other state issues alike -when the liquor question appears.- Instead of measuring men by brain power or by quali- tiies of the heart, they measure them by their capacity for liciuor and by their willingness to accept dictation from tile liquor dealers. Being themselves .devoid' of sh'amo, they have no respect for public sentiment. They will support any candidate, however conscienceless, if they can control him and if they are to dominate »the politics of this state we may expect them to do here as they did recently in Illinois when they renominated Browne, the Illinois legislator who was under indictment for bribery in the Lorimer case. "The world moves forward. Tho jeople are rising in morals as well as n intelligence. Nebraska cannot afford to turn back. The liquor business is the basest of all businesses. It t in league with every* vice and the patron of every crime'i In this state t is violating,the law jigainst treating and the law against Jthe holding oC saloons by brewers. It requires constant prosecution to prevent the sale of liquor to minqrs aiij?; to drunkards. The liquor -business Is. \more and more shunning tho light; it is retreating into the 'dark places. We cannot afford to enthrone it in Nebraska. I beg the business men of Omaha to pause before they join the crusade against public morals which the liciuor interests have inaugurated. It cannot bo profitable in the end, and even it' a profit were assured, no pecuniary reward can compensate for the surrender of ideals and self-support. 'What shall It profit a man If he .shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?' "For the reasons above given, and for others which 1 have given before. I refuse to vote for Mr. Dahlman. and hope that he will be defeated by a majority so large as to warn the liquor interests to retire from politics and permit the. people of the state to act upon the liquor question as upon other questions without further interference. The lawless should not be permitted to make the laws or to elect those to whom tho enlorcement of the law is "to be entrusted." BALDWIN ANGRY MAN IHS.MOCKATIC JUDGI3 l SUJE HOOSKVlit-T.

Baldwin, democratic nominee for governor, tonight announced that he would bring suit against Former President Roosevelt on account ot statements reported to have been made by Mr. Roosevelt In B-'., speech in Nev. Hampshire relative to Judge Bald-win's attitude on labor legislation. In a speech in Concord, N. H., on October 22. the former president, in discussing the workmen's compensation measures, was reported as saying: "The democratic party of Connecticut has nominated for governor a man who, while judge, occupied the most retrogressive position possible on this question of workmen's compensation-a man who took the view that it was competent for a workman, when driven to accept any employment, to him: himself not to be compensated for tho loss of life and limb in that occupation." Demanded a Denial. When the statement was called to Judge Baldwin's attention he denied that he had ever occupied such a position and sent a letter to Colonel Roosevelt making such a denial and asking for a retraction of the statement. The reply from Colonel Roosevelt, Judge Baldwin did not regard as complying with his request, and ho repeated his demand for a retraction.

LAWRENCE, Kas., Nov. 5.--"Husk tho Cornhusker," the favorite Kansas slogan, has gone out' of fashion to-, night In the football camp of the Jar-* hawkers. The real article In thehusfc^ ing line was perpetrated br the Corn-", huskers themselves this afternoon on.' McCook field, where. In the presence of 5,000 frenzied spectators, the gridiron warriors from Nebraska university achieved a slashing victory over tho spurious huskers of Kansas. The scoro was G to 0, although the cold figures fall far short 'o£ representing tho full measure of Nebraska's triumph. Victory over such a venerabla foe as Kansas is sweet in itself, but today the Cornhuskers whipped the proud Jay hawkers so decisively that the most rampant Kansas partisan could not but admit that their gridiron pets were hopelessly outclassed. Not In years has a Nebraska eleven played such splendid, virile football. In every position, during every moment of tho battle and in every department of tho gome the Jayhawkera were outmatched. Statistics of the Game. The statibtics show that Nebraska advanced tho ball a total of 370 yards in seventy-seven downs. The Kansas total was a puny seventy-three yards in twenty-nine downs. Nebraska was thrown back nineteen yards in downs, while Kansas suffered losses totalling nine yards in three downs. The Coruhuskers made fifteen first downs, compared with only four for the Juyhawkers. Kansas gained 517 yards on kickoffs and punts, while Nebraska's total was 32C yards. Nebraska returned kicks and punts for a total distance of 101 yards, while :he insignificant total of two yards s credited to the Jayhawkers. Ne-" bruska made one forward pass for gain of ten yards and Kansas gained twenty yards on two passes. The Jayhawkers' passes were failures, the ball hitting the turf and netting osses. Nebraska lost forty-live yards on live penalties, while Kaaisas for- 'elted thirty yards in six penalties. King Cole's proteges gave an exhibition of individual brilliance and machine play which far surpassed the expectations of their most aanguina supporters. It was Nebraska's vic- ory at every stage ot the battle. Within less than three minutes of )lay it had been demonstrated that aspirations of Kansas had been crumpled, and that the Jayhawkers were opposed by a superior team- Kansas luck, however, is proverbial and fortune smiled on the Jayhawkers today. MI^^JI Battle in Kansas Territory. Nine-tenths of the battle was waged In Kansas territory. Three times tha Cornhuskers fought their way to within five yards of the Jayhawker goal, only to be cheated out of the promised score. Once the ball was on tho one-yard line, when a dishearten- ing fumble cost the Cornhuskers possession of the oval, and it passed into the hands of tho lucky Jayhawkers. The nerve-racking situation continued until the final quarter, when Cola'» warriors, made desperate by ill fortune, turned loose an attack which Kansas could not stay. A steady march from the center of the. field beat the Jayhawkers back to "their five yard lino and In a catapultic plunge Owen Prank. Nebraska's left halt- back, charged through the Kansas forwards and crossed the goal line for the only touchdown of the day. Three - o u t hdowns added to Nebraska's total might have more fully represented the relative merits of the two elevens, but Frank's achievement and his subsequent goal kicking were fully sufficient to establish die Corn- hunkers' superiority and to avenge tho dcfea.tM of the past two years administered by Kansas on Nebraska field. Play a Sturdy Game. King Cole's pupils truly played stellar football today. The fear that Nebraska might prove weak at thu end positions was speedily dispelled. Chauner and £.ot'gren declined to be boxed by tlie Kansas interference and Kansas sprints, designed to skirt the wings, were almost invariably spilled without gains. The Nebraska ends were down like a flash on all of Frank's punth, and Ileii a.nd Johnson, who received the kicks, were tossed to the turf without an inch of gain. Ileil once returned a punt for a stingy two yards. This, in itsclj', sp'eaks volumes for the unerring tackling done by the Nebraska ends. The Nebraska forwards easily outclassed their opponents. Collins at center, liorrbergcr and Harmon, at guards, and iShonka and Temple, Nebraska's pair of aggressive tackles, had the d u m p un tho Kansas linemen and were .sifting th« rough, with such persiiite.ncc that thi Jayhawkers' offense was y/oll night pctirilo. Baird and Davidson, tlie two huskies in the Kansas line, were, able to negotiate n lew gains on swinging charges, but tlio Cornhubkcrs speedily solved Hits system of attack and ^after the Jayhawkors, helpless to j run the ends, noon found that their IN FW SPA PERI
