REPUBLICAHJUTLOOK GOOD Developments in Iowa Show Demo crats Cannot Carry State. FARMERS TO PICK SEED CORN Tin brock of Ida. 6rOT Selected aa )e!eate from the Iowa Chaa taaqaa Alliance te Na tional Catherine (From a Staff Correspondent.) DES MOINES, 6ept 22.-Speclal.)-Re-publlcans of Iowa are beginning to feel that ro far aa the state Is concerned there Is very little danger of a democratic vic tory in November, and that a matters have finally developed In this state a republican victory Is assured. The. nor mul majority of the republicans Is not far from 80,000. It la disclosed that while a great many have deserted the repub lican party to Join toe. new progressive party and will vote for Stevens for gov ernor It la unquestionably true that there are also a . great many democrats who will do the same thing. Thus while tilers will be a loss to the head, of the repub lican ticket in this state there Is also certain to be a loss to the head of the democratic ticket The leaders among republicans are be ginning to realise that a first class game of politics -Is being played by the re publican committees thla year. The com mittees have been subjected to a great deal of criticism, and some of the news papers, notably those of Des Moines, have been filled with articles designed to stlt up trouble for the republican workers. Banquet Postponed, . : The banquet and political meeting which has always been held by1 the Iowa Tip pecanoe' club at the beginning of a re publican campaign has been postponed this year, according to an announcement made tonight by Secretary J. H. Craw ford. "Speakers are needed for such an occasion and we have unable to get them," ho said. Mr. Crawford further said that both Senator Kenyon and George W. Clark, republican candidate for governor, have expressed themselves as unwilling to ad iresa the meeting. Democrats Having Trouble, It developa that while republicans are not entirely harmonious as to how their campaign should be conducted, the demo crats are having a great deal of trouble among themselves In Iowa. The state campaign It in tha hands of N. F. Reed, Judge Martin J. Wade and J. J. Dunn, neither one of whom was for Woodrow Wilson for president and all of whom have opposed the majority of the party in this state. Beed was selected to be state chairman, and was placed In charge of the campaign after he had been put off the state committee by hla own dis trict and the state convention. Now his rivals are asserting boldly that from his previous campaign a deficit of $3,000 was left .which Is being paid off by the con tributions Intended for the work on) behalf of Wilson this year, and there are no denials of the accusation. Stevens Will Do Mttle Talklna, John U Stevens, the progressiva eandl date for governor, does not Intend to do very much talking In the campaign. He expects to prepare one or two addresses for delivery in the campaign In which he will touch up some of the local leaders, whq, he Says, have hew! standing In the way of making progress In this state for a numtu of years. But 'the most of his talking, will be done, not for him self, but for the Roosevelt elector The campaign for Roosevelt Is showing a de cided slump In the most of the state, and it is expected now that the best they can do will be to get th necessary 10,000 or more votes for governor to legalise their party. Itcadr for Reed Corn Day. Seed corn day Is Monday in Iowa by special appointment of the governor, at the suggestion of prominent persons In terested In the welfare of the state. It is carrying out the work which has been done by the Iowa State college in arous ing the people of the stats to the im portance of gathering seed corn before October 1 each year rather than trusting to the chance of getting it by testing in the spring.

HOW ONE W0D RIVER FARMER CURED HIS HORSES WOOD RIVER, Neh., Sept. 22,-To the Editor of The Bee: I thought it would do no harm to tell you of my exper ience with the dreaded horse disease, I have hsd five case of it among my pasture horses In tha last ten days, and have found in all cases that they were constipated and that they all had worms. X think it Is worms that cause the disease. I gave one pint of raw linseed oil as physic and if the horse is very sick, fol lowed this oil UD with half Dint of whisky. Ttrfs whisky will ease the horse and quiet the worms till the oil takes effect. I give It every hour till well cleansed out than give some good worm expeller, but be sure they are well physicked before giving worm expeller, aa I lost by doing this, but I saved four nnd they are doing nicely now. I also had one that was not sick, but wag con stipated so bad it took two does of oil to start him. 1 .Than I gave two does of turpentine.- , .. . . .. ,, ; ij I think It can easily be prevented toe- fore the horses art. taken sick by giving the raw linseed oil on oats just a little at first till they learn to like It and will eat all you give them. Then give the worm expeller and I am sure yo.i will not have any sick horses. WILLIAM DRISTT. TWO PROMINENT CITIZENS OF NORTH PLATTE DEAD NORTH PLATTE, Nub., Sept. 22.-Spe-clal.)-J. II.

WEST DEAF TO MOOSE'S CALL i New Men Appear in Creighton Suits fioosevelt Tour Has Aroused Curi osity, but No Enthusiasm. HIS POWER TO CHARM IS GONE Vituperation ana Abase f -Opponents Make tp His Appeal and Are Listened to with Indifference. John Maynard Harlan of Chicago and J. Adam Bede of Duluth, who have been following Roosevelt through the west, came to Omaha last night for a short stay. In speaking of the tour, Mr. Bede said: "I never hunted -'possom and 'coon in tha south and bear In the north, but never had so much fun and got so much game as on this trail of the big bull moose. But it is not all fun; we are viewing the political slaughter of the. most gar rulous demagogue In American history, a man who has talked more and done less tor the good of his country than any one ever elevated to the presidency. And Roosevelt realizes his doom. That Is why he raves and tears as he does like some wild beast. "The people are sick of his sham and pretense, his disregard of the truth and his predisposition to call everybody, else a liar. They are beginning to realize that God Almighty was not unjust enough to make only one honest and wine man. They see his naked theft In politics and his cheap mendacity; his inordinate lust for power, his Insatiate thirst for re venge. They have seen him throw away friendship and honor for personal ambi tion. Heveala His Heal Self. "The best that the republican party can hope for Is that this mad Mullah will stay on the stump until election day. His crowds are large) people will go to a circus. You know what Barn urn said; but they are not for Roosevelt. They are not enthusiastic. I have never witnessed such degradation aa this man Is bringing .himself Into. Tet, he did hla nation a service in revealing hla real self, for'had he not done so history might have cheated posterity, but, of course, his real self made that Impossible. "I want to tell you Nebraskans that these bull mooters, while they pretend to be a third party, are trying to palm them selves off as republicans where they think it will do them any good. They are try lng to put their bull moose brand on our elephant. . Under Roosevelt'a leadership they have stolen titles, organizations and everything else they could, but It will not help him. Why He is for Taft. 'As for President. Taft, I am support ing him, first, because he is a gentleman; second, because he Is a statesman and has given the country . a sober, prosperous, progressive administration; because he !s honest and honorable, truthful and clean mouthed; because he Is not treacherous, would not sacrifice friendship for personal gain; because he la not a liar, or a mountebank, or a bully, braggart or buc caneer. And 1 believe that the American people's sense of Justice and decency will bold them to him. "As I said in San Francisco, lying with Roosevelt la not a habit it la a gift On that ground only la he entitled to sympathy."

Men who came with enthusiasm to hear him went away disappointed and disil lusioned. Even the Associated Press, coldly nonpartisan as it is. has been obliged to take note of the lack of enthu siasm In the colonel's audiences and of Ha unpleasant effect upon the colonel himself. . Not always good natured. even when things are going his way, the colonel's temper has. taken a decided turn for the worse with the knowledge that to spite of his fiercest efforts the people are slip ping away from UUa. DARK HROWX TASTE AT LINCOLN I'aaaaare of the Ball ! Moose Leaves ' MOraina-After Feeling-. LINCOLN, Sept 23.-(8peelal.)-Tho capital city of Nebraska awoke early to day with the dark brown taste of the morning after. The great General I. Am of the bull moose party had cunie, saw, but not conquered.' He came, not with the enthusiasm and loud acclaim accorded him In former visits; he saw; not the streets lined with shoutltg hundreds as before, and hla departure was hot that of a conquering hero aa of yore. With a desperation born only of . knowledge of certain defeat, he turned his battery, loaded with vituperation, upon the republicans to whom he owed alt hla past honors. But when the amoke had cleared away the flags of Taft, Root and Rosewater were still flying gayly In the breeze, unharmed by the onslaught of the man who because he could not command would destroy." , , ' i Sio Enthusiasm Noted. At the close of his speech at the Audi torium the colonel was taken In an auto mobile, and carried up . and down the streets of Lincoln In a vain attempt to stir an enthusiasm In the populace. Gal lons of good gasoline were poured Into the busy automobiles in an endeavor to find some portion of the city where he might be greeted with cheers as In former days. But the frantic efforts of the faith ful were of no avail and as a last resort he was rushed to the station for a fare well hurrah. But there were no crowds at the station, and the great leader at once burled himself in the quietude of hia private, car. Headquarters of the bull moose army of the Nebraska division is In gloom. General Corrick alts , with bowed head and refuses to be comforted. The usual bustle of tha alda on hia staff as they hurry to and fro In the luxurious head quarters equipped by trust money Is ab sent and they stand about aa If some great calamity had befallen them. At Eppersonlan headquarters, where they still cling to the beloved name re publican, . but battle against the repub lican standard-bearer, an Icy chilliness pervades the atmosphere. Were It not that Chairman Epperson Is receiving dally reports giving occasional crumbs of comfort for the state candidates the meeting yesterday would cause more than extreme disappointment. Some of the appointees of the governor are not feeling very friendly toward Mr. Roosevelt on account of hla utter fail ure to say a friendly word for the state executive. "I think that shows mighty little appreciation for what Governor Aldrlch has done for Colonel Roosevelt," said one man this morning. "Should Governor Aldrlch be defeated It can be laid to his advocacy of Roosevelt, which Is costing him many votes among tried and true republicans." Another man at the state house said. "If Mr. Roosevelt had said nothing tn his speech about other, governors, It would not have looked so bad, but he spoke of the governors who had done things and said 'Even I have been a governor.' " Right there it would have been a grand opportunity for him to have boosted for the Nebraska governor, but he was so taken up with his own importance that he forgot all about tha man. who has sacrificed so much for him." Foot ball prospects at Creighton uni versity have received a big boost by the appearance of several additions to the quad. . Balderson, the swift little halfback who was out most of last season with broken ribs, has appeared in a suit; O'Neill, the fast little quarter, who was Miller's run ning mate last year, and John Delehant of the law college have Joined the squad. Delehant has never played on the first squad, 'but la fast and heavy, weighing ISO. Delehant worked on a farm all sum mer and Is In the best of condition. Many rumors were set afloat by the appearance of Justin Young In a suit, and It was thought the big tackle was to again enter, but .Young has no such in tention. He will, assist Coach Miller in coaching the linemen and with his ex perience will be of great assistance to Miller. r BOX BUTTE COUNTY CALLS OFF THE ANNUAL FAIR ALLIANCE, Neb., Sept. 21.-(Special.)
