Op Baturday afternoon Rev. Harry

fixing to leave the state at once for In

lc the office of Treasurer Guile of the
.Viti-Balooii League, called together two
o-l or members of the executive committee
t( the league, making four of the seven,
Just a quorum. Mr. Hill then proposed
issuing a circular to the voters, but was
opposed by Treasurer Ouile, who urged
tliat the league Is a nonpartisan organisa
tion and should not take any stand in
favor of either party. Guile's protest was
of no avail, and although he voted against
it, the circular proposed by Kev. Hill was
adopted by a vote of t to 1. Following Is

which the circular is printed as a member
of the leHgue, said:
"I know nothing about the meeting or
the circular. I was not told that such
rutlon was contemplated. I am for Judge

and I know him to be a man of the highest
type of good citizenship, I do not indorse

As to how the scheme was worked Gov.
ernor Mickey said: "Mr. Guile, at whose

that they had proposed the action and that
he had voted against It because he did
not believe such action was necessary.
Those present at the meeting were Rev.
Hill of Omaha, Rev. Hilton of Bethany and
E. E. Boyd."
At the republican headquarters a busy
day was spent In giving out last notices
and Instructions to party organisers and
disseminating information. The anti-saloon

The Patrle asserts that an unwritten
chapter will appear later, disclosing the
fact that the Boers relied on the promises
of Germany, but that Great Britain sue
ceeded in gaining German neutrality. It
will also be shown, the Patrle adds, that
the Boer had planned to cripple British
