Campaign Lie Nailed.
The railroad press bureau ,
which has been organized lor
.ho purpose of defeating Norris
Brown for senator for the reason
that he will not obey orders
'rom the railroads , has been
publishing1 a story to the effect
.hat Brown was one of the ben-
eticiaries of the Hartley steal.
The Falls City News ran the
irticle last week and charged
Brown with owing a Kearney
bank $2,000 at the time it failed
ind that he settled the note for
$100. The people should under
stand that every statement of
this character is inspired by the
railroads in their desperate ef
fort to defeat a young man who
is hrave and true enough to
light these greedy corporations
to tlie bitter end , and to submit
lis case to the people for whom
he has worked and labored
night and day for the past two
years. We herewith publish
.lie truth of the matter , includ
ing a statement from the receiver -
ceiver of the bank who had
every note that was owed to the
The democratic newspapers
lave taken up a story about
Norris Brown that the railroad
passholders whispered about
'or six weeks before the conven
tion but did not dare spring.
Phis story in brief was that
Morris Brown , while a resident
of Kearney , had borrowed $2,000
of a bank which had $0,000 of
state money Joe Bartley had
put in there. The bank failed ,
Bartley was sent to state's
prison for stealing the money ,
and Brown never paid back but
$100 of the borrowed money.
The implication was that Brown
was really the beneficiary of
the theft of Bartley.
The story is denounced by
Brown's friends as a malicious
perversion of the facts. Instead
of Brown owing any of the
Kearney banks § 2,000 when they
failed , the greatest sum repre-
ented by any note of his in a
defunct bank was $200 , and this
had been more than paid for by
legal services rendered the
bank. In truth also Bartley
was never punished for taking
any money and putting it in
Kearney banks. lie was given
twenty years for converting to
his own use the proceeds of a
state warrant he had cashed at
Senator Millard's bank in
Omaha , but was pardoned by
soft-hearted Governor Savage ,
who also thought to favor Bart-
ley's political friends and secure
a renomination for himself.
This story was lirst heard in
Lincoln when Milt Erwin , the
Burlington political agent , was
whispering it about to head off
the threatened light by Brown
there for control oi the state
delegation. The railroad machine -
chine in Lancaster had dodgers
printed for the purpose of dis
tributing them at the county
convention , but for some reason
the leaders changed their minds.
Joe Bartley lias lately been the
agent in disseminating this
fake , if the Holt County Inde
pendent is to be believed. The
Independent on September Mth
printed the story under the caption -
tion of "Bartley and Brown. "
Mr. Bartley is not a friend , of
Norris Brown. Brown was one
of those who protested to both
Dietrich and Savage against a
pardon for the embezzling tres-
urer , but why he should tell
such a story that is far from the
facts is incompreshesible to
Brown's friends. When Brown
objected to a pardon he was
deputy attorney general , and
interested as the assisting pros
ecuting officer of the state. Fie
simply did his duty in taking
The facts in the case arc very
much different from what Hart
ley is quoted as saying they
were. Fortunately , complete
refutation is at hand. At Kear
ney N. P. McDonald , a promi
nent attorney who ofliced with
Norris Brown at the bank
crashes there , made this state
"It has been so long ago that
I have had some difficulty in
calling the exact facts to mind.
However , I know that at the
time the Kearney National bank
failed Norris Hrown did not
owe the bank § 2,000 nor did he
ever owe any bank in Kearney
any such sum of money. At
the time the Kearney National
bunk of Kearney failed Norris
was county attorney of this
county , and we were oHicing to
gether. Before the bank failed
they turned over some business
to Norris , and among other
matters were two notes against
one Oiner L. Green , one for
$1,000 and the other for $17-J.70.
On each of these notes he
brought suit for the bank in
separate actions in the county
court of Buffalo county , and re
covered judgment thereon.
These judgments were Iran ,
scripted to the district court
and executions issued there
and returned unsatisfied. There
upon he brought a creditor's
bill for the bank to set aside
conveyances of r e a 1 estate
which said Green had made to
his mother , valued at about
$5,000 Before this suit was
tried the bank failed , and Kobt.
Payne of Nebraska City , was
appointed receiver and Warren
Pratt of Kearney was appointed
attorney for the receiver. The
receiver filed an amended peti
tion in the case setting up his
appointment as such receiver ,
and Norris assisted in prosecut
ing the case to conclusion. For
these services Norris never re
ceived any pay.
"At the time the bank failed
he owed the bank a note for
$255 and one for $155. Among
the assets of the bank was a
note for $58 , which was signed
by Norris Brown and Brown &
Brown which had been assigned
by the bank as collateral secur
ity and rediscounted by the
bank. This note was paid in
full because the Kearney
National bank was not entitled
to the proceeds of the note.
"No attempt was made by the
receiver to force the collection
of the other two notes. The
bank owed Norris for services
more than the amount of the
notes. The receiver did not
surrender the notes to Norris ,
but the } ' were fiunity sold for
some nominal sum at the wind
ing up of the receivership. [
do not think that Norris owed
the bank anything if he had
been paid , and I do not think
that the receiver considered
that any judgment could be re
covered on the notes. His note
was always good in this town
because he was always careful
to keep his debts within the
limit of what he could reason
ably pay , and his credit was
"He never transferred any
property to his wife. At one
time he contracted to purchase
a home here and the bond for
the deed was taken in the name
of his wife , in the financial
crash of the early 'OO's he lost
this property , and I am not
familiar with the details of it.
If he owed the First National
bank of Kearney anything at
the time it failed I know noth
ing about it , but I do not think
he did. Henry E. Lewis of
Lincoln was receiver for this
bank , and the facts can be as
certained from him. M. A.
Brown of this city did owe the
Kearney National bank at the
time it failed a sum in excess of
$2,000 , and it is likely that these
fellows who are trying to de
fame Norris have got the names
"Norris Urown did not owe
either of the Kearney banks for
which 1 was a receiver , " said
Henry K. Lewis of Lincoln.
"Various parties have recently
been to me with the same ques
tion , but I have told them the
fact , as I have told you , that no
note'signed by Norris Brown
was among the papers of either
A Shocking Accident.
Master Irvin Mclvinney , the
seven year old stepson of Will G.
Ward , living north of the citv ,
was the victim of a shocking ac
cident on Wednesday afternoon
shortly after the noon houri which
will maim him for life even if it
Iocs not result fatally. The lad
was attempting Jo catch on and
ride in the rear end of a spring
wagon coming down Central
avenue , and in some manner his
right leg became fastened in the
spokes of the wheel , wrenching
the limb off at the knee joint as
completely an if it had been done
with a cleaver. The vehicle was
owned by Mr. llisky , who with
tis wife and two relatives were
coming to catch a train. They
were driving along at quite a
rapid pace and knew nothing of
the lad's presence or his attempt
to mount .the wagon until they
leard a groan and looking back
saw him loosen his hold from the
top of the rear seat and fall to
the road. The severed limb lay
i short distance away and the
sight almost overcame the group.
The lad , with wonderful nerve
mid great presence of mind asked
to be taken home , but was instead
emoved to the home of Clay
3d wards close at hand where Drs.
Gaudy , Morris and Wittwer were
summoned to care for his injuries.

imb was being amputated a little

John Wiltse , the republican
candidate for county attorney , is
a product of Richardson county.
His early life was similar to that
of all farmer's sons who were
born here thirty years ago. His
early years were years of toil and
liis schooling was snatched dur
ing the few short weeks which
intervened between the comple
tion of farm labor in the early
winter and its opening in the
spring. By hard study and close
application to his books during
his short period of schooling each
year , he prepared himself to
enter the high school at Falls
City. lie began teaching school
at the early age of seventeen
years and followed the profession
for ten years , returning to his
labors on the farm during the
intervening months of each year.
At an early age he became filled
with a desire to become a lawyer
and for several years , while
teaching , he kept up the study of
law. Later he entered the law
office of Mr. Clarence Gillespie of
Falls City and under his super
vision pursued the study of law
for a period of two years. At
the completion of his period of
study he made application for ad
mission to the bar and had the
distinction of receiving the high
est grades of any of the fifteen
applicants who were examined
at that time. Since his admis
sion to the bar , he has been en
gaged in the practice of law in
this city amd has the confidence
of all who know him. If elected
county attorney , he will fill the
office with credit to himself and
to his constituents.
