The Nebraska backs, In truth, loved with the Jayhawkers today and made them drink at the cup of defeat and drain its bitterest dregs. Puzzled by Nebraska Attack. The Jayhawkers were puzzled by the Nebraska attack. Quarterback Warner varied his plays so nicely that the Kansans were outguessed, and the formations were under way before the Jayhawkers could divne the direction of the plays. After the Corn- huskers had thrice battled their way to within the Kansas five yard line, only to be balked and denied the coveted touchdown and after the J^e- braskans once more had charged down the field to where the Kansas goal was again endangered, Warner's generalship was put to a severe test. He emerged, however, with living colors With the goal live yards distant and the Jayhawkers resisting valiantly on every down, Warner signalled for a fake charge toward the left wing of the Kansas line. It was a delayed of rooters who w e n t down g.ime. . pass, however, and while the Jayhawkers were shifting to protect the point of attack, Warner passed the oval to Owen Frank who plunged through the other side of the line. Chauner and Bhonka boxed their opponents and Frank hurled himself through the opening and put the ball down behind the post with a Kansas ladder clinging to his heels. The Cornhuskers devoted scant attention to the forward pass. Able to gain consistently on straight football, Warner bottled his passes for jio other purpose than to conceal the Nebraska system from the Ames scouts who were In -the stands. The Aggies now stand alone in disputing Nebraska's progress toward the Missouri valley championship and the defeat of the Aggies next Saturday on Nebraska, field will give the Cornhusk- ers an unquestioned right to the title. The Jayhawkers, balked in their efforts to rush the ball, used six forward passes, four of which were failures. Troublesome Tommy Johnson, who has been a thorn in Nebraska's side for the past two years, was a tume athlete. He punted with all of his former vigor, but the virile Nebraskans had his measure and flopped Lira to the turf on his almost every, effort to lug the ball. Johnson was playing hack with Hell when Nebraska punted, tut the former.trouble- some person waa not permitted/to make so much as'.an inch of ground. Coaches Mar the Gamo. The Kansas students gave the Corn- huskcrs and Nebraska rooters a fine reception, and the hospitality dis- plaved gave assurance of a continuation of amicable athletic relations between the two schools. The game'was marred, however, during tho last few minutes of play by the Kansas coaches, who violated the ethics of fair football by rushing- onto the field and demanding credit for a touchdown. Following Frank's touchdown nnd goal kick Tommy Johnson kicked off Irom the middle of tho field. He booted the ball back of the Nebraska · goal line- *b.e oval bounding across the cinder track which circles tho CLOSING TO BE STRBHUOUS K«..,v York Candidate* to Kce;i t"l» the FiKlit Hie"* UP «» EU-c- tloii Duj% NEW YORK, Nov. 6.--Although Henry L. Stimson. the republican-candidate for governor, returned irom his up-state tour late last night he took the stump again, making one speech this afternoon and seven tonight. He has just as full a speaking program awaiting him Monday, when he and Theodore Roosevelt will campaign up to the stroke of election day morning-. John A. Dix. Mr. Stimson's opponent, made his last speech to a delegation of tanners w h o called at him home in Thomson In addition to delivering eight speeches, Mr. Stimson dictated a long telegram which was sent to his Opponent at Thomson this evening. 'Ibe message comprised twelve questions asking for details as to Mr. Dix's pobitioii on the tariff, his treatment of his own employes and his charge of republican extravagance.

Another output from republican headquarters was an open letter from John Mitchell, former president of the united mine workers union, attacking Mr. Dix's alleged treatment of the em- ployes In his wallpaper factory. Ezra Prentice, the republican campaign chiei, declared Stimson would win by !tO,000 majority. A few hours later after completing: his tabulation he increased his estimate to 100,000. lie conceded that his candidate for governor would be behind tho rest of th ticket. Chairman YVinlield A. Huppuch of the democratic committee bald lie would stand by his former estimate of a Dix plurality of from 140.0UO to IfiO.OOO. "When tho charge was first mado that Mr. Dix required the employes In his paper mills to work thirteen hours ench night. I assumed that the charge had no basis in luct and that it would be answered by a spocillc denial However, up to this hour, no Gcn:;i has boon made and no explanation has been offered by Mr. Dix. On the contrary, investigation has demonstrated that employes or the paper mills controlled by Mr. Dix are required to work thirteen home, each night.

This plan provides for an independent non-partisan tariff commission pt experts, who shall proceed upon the assumption that the protective system is to be a, system of principle and justice, and not to be permitted to degenerate into a jumble of favoritism and preference: who above all snail proceed upon the assumption tnat our prime object is to protect the workingman and to ~ive a legitimate profit to the farmer and the manufacturer, and not to give an Illegitimate and excessive profit to any one. This commission is ,to- find out the facts by original investigation, not to accept the say-so of any man as to his own interest. Then they arc to report schedule by,schedule, each schedule has to be voted on separately by congress, so that cacil case may be con- its own merits, thereby momentarily be misled by leaders who are neither honest nor timid into, misinterpreting: our purpose; but, "as» certain as I stand here, the American people will In the end overwhelmingly and decisively declare themselves for the principles and the purposes set forth. Our intention is to extend the genuine principles of democracy into our indtistrl.il and economic, as we'l as our political, life. Wo hold that a great democracy must be progressive, for if it ceases to be progressive it soon cesses to be either great or democratic. Believe in Good Government. "We believe in efficiency in government: we stand for facts and not formulas: we are for the efficient ex- ercis" of popular rights: we wish to see this efficiency shown alike by the xecuti\e, the judicial, and the legis- atica branches of the government, a ach acting in its own sphere, and no one of th«m being- permitted to a?- frrandize Itself at the expense of the co-ordinate branches. We are for the rights of the nation and the rights of thf states: but we uo not wish either :he cry of national risrhts. or the cry of states' rights, to be used for the purpose of subverting the cause of popular rights. Primarily, we £re for th* rights of the people: where these rights can best be subserved by the exercise of state's rights, then we are for state's risrhts, but where, because ^ _ _ the question is onp that really affects themselves as to what principle thes sidered on .._ - ..,, enabling us to get rid of the system of log rolling which has proved so fruitful-a source of scandal in the past and of the buisiness disturbance which has always accompanied a sweeping- and general changt in tariff rate". In my own judgment there should be a' "provision making it a duty o£ some board or commission to iind' out by actual investigation in any given case, whether the laboring man, for whose benefit the-tariff is primarily arrang-ed, actually does get the benefit. Facing Problems Fairly, "You will see therefore, that the republican party is facing its problems m exactly the right spirit. We have adhered to the principle which was right, we have abandoned the rnethoo which was wrong, and have adopted the method which is right. "Our opponents cisely the reverse, nounced that they have done pre- They have an- will abandon the all the people of the union, tho cause of poular risrhts is really identical with the cause of national rights, then we arc- for national rlchts. Above all, we feel that by legislative, executive and judicial action it should be made clear that the national and state governments, taken jointly, cover the whole field of government, so that there slwll not be left any debatable land, any neutrnl rrround, in which v.'rotis-doers, sufficiently wealthy *o be able to hire the T'pst lesal counsel, can dwell in security, and enjoy the fruits of tliPlr wrong-doin;? without interference by either state or nation. "Whenever In a porind of chancre It becomes necessary to readjust existing prejudices and habits to new conditions, there Inevitably happens a certain amount of dislocation and disturbances, and in the new movement thpro are always some people who want to go forward too far, or too fast, and otlipr people who do not want to pro forward at all. JDurlncr tho past few years these tendencies have beon visible In both tho great historical parties of the nation. I flrmlv bolieve that the vnnk and file of the democratic party, the pliln ciM- who are In the democratic party principle which is right, but that the} will cling to the method which has so conclusively been shown to be wrong They do not agree among propose to adopt.

The demoa-atlc chairman said that John A. Dix would run ahead of tho ticket. The republican campaign manager admitted that Henry 1... Stimson would run behind. John Mitchell Attacks uix. Jonn Mitchell, tho labor leader, issued through republican state headquarters tonight an open letter attacking the labor record of John A. Uix. tho democratic candidate for governor. The letter says in part: "If the state of Now York and all its municipalities ordain eight hours aa a fair day's work, what justification can there be for excusing or defending u thirteen hour day in the paper nulls controlled by Mr. Dix? The statute of the state of New York establishing tho eight hour day was enacted at the solicitation of the wage-earners. Does It secrn reasonable to suppose that Mr. DJX, who requires his own men to work thirteen hours each night, would sympathize with a law which establishes tor state and municipal employes an ela;ht hour work day? "In my opinion tho wage-earners should distinguish between the candidates for office and that quite apart from political considerations they should oppose the election of any candidate of any party who is not in sympathy with then- efforts to secure and maintain fair wages, reasonable hours and just conditions of employment and that they should give their support to candidates, Irrespective of party affiliations, whose past actions have demonstrated their fairness to labor." WHKIUS IXTEIIEST CEXTKRS. Xc-vr York and Ohio Chief Concern great majority of the northern states at lenst. and in some or the southern states also, the management of thoir party has fallen into tho hands of tho reactionary clement, or else alternates between a wild p.nd foolish kind of radicalism representing- merely destructive and not constructive forces, ami thn extreme reactionary bourbon- ism which such wild and foolish radicalism inevitably tends to breed. In the republican party, on the contrary, thero hns been a steady growth among thp leaders and those in control towards a spirit of sane progress; It being a remarkable fact that most of these so-called leaders have, in this matter, In reality, tended not to lead but to follow the people, whose instinct in this crisis has been far surer and wiser than that of most of who have assumed that they were to guide and lead them. In some states the titular nnd professional leadership has sagged behind in the march of progress, but taking- the states as a whole, it can fairly be said that the republican parly now stands with its face set towards the future, bpr.t upon solving present day problems in the spirit in which those who went before us solved the problems of Lincoln's day. And even those In our ranks who have lagged behind, are non- marching in tho right direction, nnd can be depended upon to catch xip with the main bulk of the army. Room for Every Honest Man. "Thero is room in tho republican party for every honest and upright man who really does face the future, who really is more concerned with the problems of the f u t u r e than with the buried problems of the past, northerner and southerner, easterner nnd westerner, we all stand together now and work, with a common purpose, for the common national welfare, for the common good of all of us.

In the same way, in our own ranks; men who have differed In the past over methods .rather than over principles, can now come together and work in a spirit ot the heartiest co-operation.

Nov. 5. -- The most serious rioting that has yet marked the strike of express drivers and helpers culminated in the shooting of a striker by a guard on a wagon, which took place tonight following an abrupt termination of negotiations between the men and the companies. The situation tonight is regarded as increasingly serious, with added possibility of a sympathetic walkout throughout the city of all teamsters and allied organizations. Peter Roach a striking driver, the victim of today's rioting, was shot through the bodj during an attack bv a mob on an Adams express wagon. The last rites were administered to him in a drug store and he was hurried to a hos pital, where his condition late tonigli was reported critical. John Ferry, a guard on the wagon was arrested, and, acording to th' police, admitted the shooting. He sail he fired after he had been hit m th face by a stone hurled by Roach When he saw the latter preparing t throw again he fired. Roach deniec any part in the riot. , The termination of the negotiation was precipitated by a letter to Mayo Gavnor from the companies statin that the only condition on which the would take back the strikers was in dividual application not later tha Monday. Re-employment in their old '.lositions at former wages was promised "without discrimination against any of them because of having left the service." What Companies proffered. The companies also agreed, as soon as work is resumed, to confer with their employes m an endeavor to ef- t'«et g. -settlement of wages and hours, These terms were rejected by the strike leaders without even formal consideration. Now it is a case of fight--a case ot t until we win," said William A. ^shton. general organizer of the teamsters' union, as he left a conference with Mayor Gaynor. Previouslv the strikers had submitted a paper for the companies to si«ii under which they were willing to return to work pending a settlement of hours and of wages. It provided that all men must be taken back "except for exceptional violence committed by them during the strike. This paper was ignored by the companies. usal of the strikers, sent a letter to 'rank H. Platt. head of the United tales company, announcing the re- ection of the plan. The men, he ex- lained, declared that the wording of he company's pledge offered no pro- ection against discharge, except "for laving left title service," The mayor commented that he had unved the companies to sign the pledge suggested by the strikers, and \dded: "If you will do this the strlka iiids immediately, but the men say hey see no use to go back only to lischarged because they have joined a. union."
