Mr. Lloyd announced some months

go to another man.
The new chairman is serving his
second term in congress. He was ac
tive in the Washington and Chicago

up and robbed Miss Elizabeth Foley
and two women clerks in the former

Only a short time before Joseph J.

encouraging report from Miss Artz,
those who have the misfortune to
suffer as she did, will naturally long
to get similar relief. But to get the
same good as Miss Artz has, you
should get the same remedy. There
are of course, other kidney pills but
there are no other kidney pills the

Urges Nebraskans to Get Together
and Forget Differences.
Omaha, June 24. "Forget and for
give" was the keynote of an address
delivered last night by former Vice
President Charles W. Fairbanks at a
banquet given in his honor by 300 re
publican leaders of Nebraska. The
gathering was fairly representative
of both wings of the party in this 6tate
and good fellowship prevailed.
Mr. Fairbanks had no decided views
to express on current legislation or
on democratic politics, except to touch
on the income tax section of the Un
derwood tariff bill. On this matter
he declared himself in favor of an in
come tax, but thought it should be a
representative one. The provision for
a minimum of $4,000 he believed too
high and placed the "burden, if it may
be so-called" on a too small number
To Nebraska republicans the former
vice president recommended a get-together
policy. He urged that they let
bygones be bygones.
"No matter how differently good re
publicans saw their duty a year ago
that does not matter now," he declar
ed. "The test of republicanism today
is one's loyalty to republican princi
"Circumstances which unfortunately
led to party division a year ago no
"The democratic party is in full pow
er and it can be overthrown only by
the united effort of the great body of
those who believe in the soundness
and efficacy of republican principles.
"I have no doubt whatever that the
logic of events will bring all republi
cans into cooperation again. This
much to be desired result cannot be
accomplished by coercion of any sort;
it must come about naturally, by the
exercise of a spirit of tolerance and
patience; old scores should be forgotten."
TRYING TO BREAK
A $5,000,000 WILL
London, June 24. Society crowded
the probate court today at the begin
ning of the suit over the will of the
late Sir John Murray Scott. Sir John
left $5,000,000 to Lady Sackville of
Knowles Park, Kent, the wife of
Baron Sackville, a relative of the for
mer British minister to Washington.
Malcolm Scott, a brother of St. John,
opposes the probate of the will on the
ground that Baron and Lady Sack
ville used undue influence in order to
secure the bulk of the estate. He also
claims that a codicil, for which he has
offered $50,000 reward, was executed
after the drawing of the will for which
the Sackvilles seek probate.
By an order of the court sometime
ago an envelope left by Sir John Mur-
ray Scott, addressed to Lady Sack
ville, was opened but it had not been
disclosed whether it contained the
mlsstag codicil. Outlining the case
for Malcolm Scott, his counsel said;
"The Sackvilles spent more than ten
years in obtaining complete ascen-.
dancy and domination over Sir John
Scott. The nature of that influence
was such thai, although they are not
relatives, they induced him to finance
them for enormous sums during his
lifetime and to leave them the great
er part of his estate of $5,000,000."
Sir John died Jan. 17, 1912, after
a most remarkable career. He wai
the son of a Scottish doctor of hum
ble position. The doctor chanced to
be called to attend the Marquis of
Hertford. The marquis and his kins
man, Richard Wallace, took a liking
to him, and Wallace appointed Dr.
Scott's son his private secretary. He
served in that capacity many years
and eventually induced. wrMace to
present the famous Wallace art col
lection to the British nation, for which
service Scott was made a barone Sir
John's fortune was bequeathed -him
that he fastened a chain around the bv Ldy Wallace, who left about five,
