Thus Joe left Alliance and its railroad workers over $300 poorer than when he arrived. No theory has been advanced as to where he went, and it is likely that no great search will be made for hiwf, for even if he was forced to return to Al liance, it would be somewhat difficult to keep him here. The machinists will no doubt consider the money lost and let the matter drop.

Tell of Chan sea in Nationnl Life of Japanese Empire During Last Twenty Years. The Rev. S. Saito, Japanese mission ary to the Japanese of Nebraska, was the principal speaker at the regular weekly meeting of the Rotary club at the Alliance hotel Wednesday evening. He discussed in a very interesting way the old customs of Japan which are rapidly being replaced by modern Hieas as a result of the travels of membei-3 of the royal family, who, for centuries, have been prohibited from leaving the island by a narrow Japan ese custom. The native reed hats, ftraw coats and shoes are rapidly being replaced by American hats, rubber coats and shoes, Mr. Saito said. He spoke at 'ength on the political and religious life of the Japanese peo ple and commended very highly the recent Washington conference which paved the way for perpetual peace in the Pacific. "The Japanese representatives ex pected to be scolded over the Shantung affair, but they found Mr. Hughes, the American statesman, more than fair in his handling of the situation," the speaker said. "We could not see why the United States should permit Russia and Germany to control Vast areas of China before the war and then object 0 strenuously to Japans' hold ings as a result of the aid she had given during the conflict in driving Germany out of China." He said that in an area no larger than the state of Montana, Japan was compelled to support seventy-seven millions of people and the constantly c"-'" i"'i'u"i'" imimn . l mat is wnv, tne speaKer saiu, japan jis eager to find new territory and to ff" er sons to new countries wnere town country The members of the club were able to catch an intimate view of Japanese national life, their ideas of world con ditions and their hopes of the future from the remarks of Mr. Saito. Final Decision of Kinkaid Not to Be a Candidate Cmipressman Kinkaid again is not a candidate for re-election to succeed himself. The announcement came in the-following telegram to S. J. Weeks, chairman of the republican district committee, says the Lincoln Star, "Kindly publicly announce to my constituents that I have positively de termined not to le a candidate for re election. A backset I have suffered in the fast few days with the added conditions of weight and strength noticeably reduced in the last year convinces me that to now assume the responsibilities of a congressional can didacy would endanger my permanent health, and certainly deprive me of the re-t es.-ential to recuperation. "Mv feelings of gratitude are un bounded for the magnanimous con sideration shown me by aspirants for the office and friends and supporters in general. "M. P. KINKAID."
