The action of the grand lodge of

the grand lodge meeting was supple
mented yesterday by a resolution
adopted empowering the grand chan

adopted without a dissenting vote.
It is the claim of the saloon men.

ONE HUNDRED HEAR HIM
Will Scott Asks Speaker Questionsand
There is sn Exchange of
11. M. McCaskrin repeated his anti-
Scott speech last night iu front of the
Augustana Book concern, in the Sev
enth ward, where the republican can
didate for state's attorney resides.
Owing possibly to the disagreeable
weather, the crowd was not what had
been expected by McCaskrin. but
about a hundred voters were present
to hear his attack on Scott's candi
He reiterated his charges against
Scott, and took up the hitter's counter
charges and denied them one by one
Will Scott, a brother of the candi
date, was present, and took exception
to some of the statements made by
McCaskrin. McCaskrin's reply was:
"If your brother has not the cour
age to come betore tins audience ana
face me and the charges against him
he should be defeated for stales attor
ney. You should be ashamed to come
here and take his place before this aud
Iliim ul I'nrliier.
When McCaskrin reached the third
countercharge made by Scoit. to the
effect that he iiad asked Scott to talu
him into partnership. McCaskrin
stated that no one who has examined
his library or noticed the circuit court
dockets would believe that it was at
all necessary for him to take a part
ner. Here he was interrupted again
by Will Scott, who asked: lint you
did ask him to take you as a partner,
did you not?" McCaskrin's reply was
"No. your brother uttered a falsehood
when he said that I did." "Well,
want to return the compliment," r
In closing McCaskrin urged that the
voters of the county support W. C
Allen for the office of state's attorney
McCaskrin makes two speeches in
the First ward tonight, one at Gam

and Seventh avenue. He will be ac
companied by a martial band.

"I see that among other things that
J. K. Seott charges to H. M. McCas
krin," said J. O. Allen, of Molin
brother of W. C. Allen, the democratic !
... . . . . I
candidate lor states attorney tins
morning, "is that McCaskrin asked my
brother to withdraw in his favor as a
candidate and went so far as to prom
ise to appoint me his assistant if he
was elected as an independent candi
date. "These statements on Mr. Scott's
part are absolutely without founda
tion. My brother is confined to his
home by sickness now, or he would
take up these statements himself. Il
authorizes me to say. however that Mr.
McCaskrin made no proposition to him
whatever. As far as I am concerned
the allegation is equally false. My
brother is the candidate on the demo
cratic ticket, and has never had any
thought of withdrawing and has not
been asked to do so by anyone'. He
did not seek the nomination, but he
never deserted anyone who placed
(otitidence in him. He hopes to
be about in a few days and then will
be heard himself on this proposition.
He has had many assurances of good
will and supiort from his republican
as well as democratic friends, and ow
ing to the handicap that he has suf
fered by reason of the contest brought
to keep him off the ticket, thus de
laying his canvass, and realizing the
object of the same to be purely to
help Scott, his friends in both parties
are anxious to do all the more for him
on that account."
Mrs. A. M. Bruner, who spent two
weeks at the bedside of her father,
John Forsling, in Kimball, Neb., re
turning home on the 1 Uii inst., has re
ceived word that he passed away two
days after her departure for Hock Isl
am!. John Forsling was born in Swe
den, near Gothenburg, in 1:!2. He
leaves besides his widow four sons
and three daughters, all of whom, with
the exception of a daughter in Sweden
and Mrs. Bruner, have resided in west
ern Nebraska since the father settled
in America in lSn. Mr. Forsling. with
his sons, has been interested in cattle
and lands near Cheyenne, Wyo.. where
the sons now represent important and
extensive interests. Mr. Forsling was
a man of affairs, a stunch churchman,
with unswerving loyalty to all mat
ters relating to the interests of his
country and state.

Rev. E. Kligen. who has been at
tending the state Presbyterian synod,
gave a short but interesting address
to the high school students yesterday
afternoon. He dealt with the value of
specializing in one's vocation, and the
necessity of concentration of though!
upon this one subject. His talk was
very clear and forcible. Rev. Kligen,
who w;is a boyhood friend of Principal
Brown, had a reputation as an able
speaker while attending school, and he
has upheld that reputation ever since.
He is connected with the Presbyterian
church at Qufncy.
