METCALFE DECIDES TO ENTER NAME RACE FORGQVERNOR Will Accept the Filing of His Friends to Become Candidate for Democratic Nomination. SENDS IN mS FILING FEE Says He Will Make a Stand on Pol icies of Woodrow Wilson. WANTS TO MAKE CLEAN RACE Gives His Position in a Statement to the Public. SHALLENBERGER FOR CONGRESS Former Governor Will File from the Fifth District C. E. llarrann Will Then AVlthdrnvr Ilia Name. Richard L. Metcalfe, having looked things over, has announced his decision to enter the raco for governor .of Ne braska this faal and has forwarded to the secretary of state at Lincoln his ac ceptance of the petitions filed In his be half by his democratic friends. News from Lincoln last night was also that ex-Governor Ashton C. Shallenber ger will come to Lincoln Tuesday and will file for the democratic nomination for congress In the Fifth district. In the event of his doing so Clarence E. Har man, state food commissioner, who has already filed for the congressional nomi nation, will withdraw his filing papers. It Is supposed the fact that Governor Morehead has entered the race for a, second nomination at the hands of tho democratic party has had something to do wwtth tho change, as It Is probable that Mr. Harman will take charge of the governor's campaign and aa Harman has been his political right hand man for some time, probably In difference to the wishes of the governor, Harman will withdraw from tho congressional race. In his explanation of his determination to run for governor, Mr. Metcalfe says: "If nominated I shall go upon the stump and uphold the administration of Wood row 'Wilson. If elected I shall strive to give to the people good state government on economical lines. I shall not bo the candidate of any faction, but shall try through my administration to win for the ( democratic party the respect and confi dence of men of all parties. 'The office of governor Is the most Im portant office within the gift of the peo ple pt the state. Its opportunity for serv ice Is not to be measured by tho powers conferred by law. A larger service is possible In tho broader opportunity for leadership In the efforts to establish bet ter relations between rural Nebraska and the cities of Omaha, Lincoln and other trade centers, and in the endeavor to ad vance the name and resources of Ne braska to a more and more commanding position in the attention of the world. Itellef for Taxpayers. "Efforts towards Improved state gov ernment have generally related to re forms with respect to the method of vot ing and, while this has been Important, there are broader fields of endeavor whloh have been neglected. There are many de tails "of state government where general Improvement may be made. The cost of administrations should bo reduced through business-like economy. Some of the re lief required by the over-burdened tax payer may be obtained through retrench ment In the expense of conducting publio business. Real relief is to be brought about through official efforts and influ ence on the governor's part for the pre vention of needless and extravagant ap propriations. If elected I shall, not hesi tate to use the veto power for the pur pose of frustrating personal or "pork bar rel" legislation. Improvement may be instituted in various state departments where the governor has a controlling voice or the privilege of recommendation. Men whose character and capacity will command tho respect of good citizens, generally may be appointed to office. Hesitated to Hun. "Although I would rather be governor of Nebraska than hold any other office, I have hesitated to submit my name to the primaries. I know that Nebraska Is not normally a democratic state and that the greatest care must be exercised by the rank and file in selecting the candidate who will serve as the leader in the coming campaign. However, at tractive the office may be to me per sonally ,the task -which . the successful candidate must assume is not an invit ing one. The campaign to follow will demand the hardest sort of work. It is Important, however, that Nebraska shall register its approval of Woodrow Wilson next November, I do not means to say that I would measure tip to the requlre- (Continued on Page Two.)

STIRRING EVENTS MARK TRIP Slater's Lack of Sympathy Delays Start, Ston Made by Accident at Drink Shop anil Haffke Utter Startling; Theorr. Six auto loads of the flower of Omaha's suffragists went out to Florence yester day afternoon to do valiant service In the cause of "Votes for Women." Tho autos were gaily decorated In American flags and brllllnnt yellow placard bear ing the Inscription "Votes for Women" and "Nebraska Next," and created a stir of excitement In front of the Brand els theater building, from which point they started. Everyone was assigned to a car and the party was about to start wher. !t was dis covered that one of the ears was wedged between two auto trucks and couldn't get out. Tho woman In charge of tho auto livery office was appealed to to se cure a driver to dislodge the offending car, but Instead of doing what was in her power, as one of the down-trodden sex, to assist those who were going to do battle for her sake, she appeared on the sce.no with blood in her eye, despite the fact that A. T. Slgwart of the police force was on hand, and refused to allow the car to be budged one Inch. The car was finally extricated and the party was about to start for the second time, when a belated photographer ap peared. All the suffragists scrambled out of the machines, posed for a picture, got back Into the cars and were finally off, lluslr. Announces Coming;. Loud blasts of the bugle by Frank Harrison of Lincoln, who came down to assist with the parade, and Tom Berry and Russell Mason, Omaha High school boys, brought out many peaceful citizens along the way. When the cars reached Florence the first stop was made in front of a haven for tho dispensation of soapy drinks, but the procession finally halted In front of tho Bank of Florence, where everyone got out of the cars. The call of the bugle brought out Mayor Freeman Tucker, who mounted the rostrum of the curb and gave an address of welcome In behalf of the citizens of Florence. Then Mrs. D. G. Craighead mounted the seat of one of the open autos and ad dressed the crowd of farmers, children, a few women and "Just men" who had as sembled, on tho need of woman suffrage from the standpoint of tho home. She was followed by Charles Haffke, assist ant county attorney, who made an Im passioned plea to the men to give the women a square deal and permit them to be represented in our government be cause our fathers had fought for the same principle. He threw quite a scare into the suffragists when he remarked: "Don't bo afraid that women will take away your Jobs or your salaries when they get the right to vote. When It comes to a cholco of paying a man and a woman the jame salary,,, most-any em ployer will choose to pay It to a man." While tho speeches were being made, others distributed suffrage literature and badges on the outskirts or the crowd. Two new suffragists are claimed to have been brought Into the fold as a result Just then Attorney Isldor Zlegler was discovered In the crowd and some one suggested that he ask the speakers some questions, but he fled before he could be cornered. A zealous suffragist in quired of Roy Moore, high school lad, whether he was a sympathizer with tho cause. "I've got .to be," he replied, "I'm driving Mrs. Draper Smith's car." Why Small nor Is for Suffrage. After the speeches, suffrage songs were sung to tho tune of "Dixie," "Marcnln' Through Georgia" and other old favorites. Then Mr. Richardson led In the Ne braska suffrage yell, ending with "Ne braska Women Are Bound to vote." But It was such a weak-sounding cheer, that Mr. Haffke Jumped to the side of Mr. Richardson and together they succeeded In getting the women to give a rousing yell. Little James Richardson was com plimented on his enthusiasm In singing the suffrage songs and giving the yellu. "Oh, yes!" deolarcd his mother, "he Is very anxious that we obtain the ballot, so that his mother will stay home then and not be out campaigning for It." On the return, the machines drove through the downtown streets and dis banded at suffrage headquarters. Tho trip was planned for Valley, Elkhorn and Waterloo, but was abandoned, be cause of the condition of the road. If the weather Is favorable, this trip will be made next Saturday. Among those who made up the party .were: Mr. and Mrs. Charles Haffke, Mr. and Mrs. James Richardson, Mesdames Draper Smith, D. G. Craighead, J. T. Stewart, 2d; Dewey, George Doane, Z. T. Lindsay, J. P. White, Fred Lake, John L. Kennedy; Misses Katherlne Graves, Daisy Doane, Jeanette McDonald, Anna Peterson, Pearl Mlnlck, Margaret Fugltt, K. L. Hlatt.

FEDERAL GUNBOATS OR WAY TO WICOi ! Vessels Sail from Mexico to Enforce Order of Blockade. SHOULD ARRIVE BY MONDAY Closely Trailed by the Taooma and Sacramento of U. S. Navy. BRYAN HAS DICTATOR'S DECREE Administration Officials Hold Hur ried Conference and Take Action. RESULT IS KEPT A SECRET Mexican Vessels Arc Not Considered Strons; as Flfthtlng- Ships, While American Craft Are Well Armed. WASHINGTON. June 7.-A new crisis In the Mexican situation developed lato tonight when two Mexican federal gun boats, closely trailed by two American war craft, the cruiser Tacoma and gun boat Sacramento, steamed from Puerto Mexico for Tamplco to enforce a block ado of that port decreed by General Huerta. No specific orders have been given, tho American commanders merely having In structions to keep the Mexican boats under surveillance, but It is known that Bear Admiral Badger has been advised that the United States government ro gards Tamplco as an open port and de sires that there be no Interference with commence there. Notice of General Huerta's decrco was given formally to Secretary Bryan ear lier In tho night by Senor Rlano, the Spanish ambassador, who represents the Huerta government here. This was followed by a conference of administra tion officials, but nothing was known of the result and even the fact that the notice had been given was not made public. How far the decision of the Washington government to see to It that Tamplco Is kept an operi port, will go toward pre venting interference with the landing of arms for the Mexican constitutionalists, no official would discuss tonteht. The Cuban steamer Aritllia. with a cargo of war munitions, isduj at Tamplco noxt Wednesday; the federal gunboats Bravo and Zaragosa, reported leaving Puerto Mexico tonight by Admiral Badger, should arrive there Monday morning. The potslble effect of suppression "f the proposed blockade, upon the media tion' conference at-Nlagara Falls has "been given due consideration by administra tion officials here, and opinion on the subject Is said to be sharply divided. "No orders will be Issued "tonight," was the only comment of Secretnry Daniels. Secretary Bryan was not awakened to be Informed of the depurture of the gun boats. The Mexican vessels carry small guns and are Insignificant as fighting ships. The Tacoma's main battery Is of five-Inch rifles, and the Sacramento carries four Inch rifles. Ileliels Ilecetre Word. TAMPICO, June u. An official notifica tion was sent today to Consul Clarence A. Miller by Governor Luis Caballero that he had received Information of the In tention of the federal war vessels, Zaro goza and Bravo, to come to Tamplco for the purpose of bombarding or blockading the port. For this reason Govornor Caballero thought It proper to notify the American consul so American war vessels lying off the port might keep out of the line of fire. It Is not yet known what steps are to be taken to drive o'.t the gunboats should they make any effort to blockade the port. On tho arrival here of the American schooner Sunshine from Gnlveston with 3,000.000 cartridges for the constitutionalist authorities, Admiral Mayo sent Flag Lieutenant Arthur B. Cook to learn the character of the cargo. Captain Brown of the sunshine had made his vessel fast to the custom's hous wharf and had begun to discharge the cargo. After the flag lieutenant made his report to the admiral, tho latter de cided he had no authority to Interfere and tho unloading of the ammunition continued until the entire consignment was deuoslted In the customs house.

Ure Falls from a Car and Breaks His Arm The county strong box will have to get along for a week or ten days without the watchful care of County Treasurer Ure, for the treasurer Is laid up at his home at Twentieth and Blnney streets with a broken arm and sundry other bruises, re suiting from a fall from a street car Saturday evening on Sixteenth, near Jones. "I was about to board the car with a couple of packages In my arm," explains Mr. Ure, "and as It slowed up, swung myself on, thinking the car was stopping. In some way I lost my hold, and the next thing I knew J was in the street all in a heap." Immediately after the accident Treas urer Uro was taken Into the Prescripto drug store for temporary relief, and thn Tlome.

(From a fUaff Correspondent) LINCOLN, June 7.-(Special.)-What a long breath of relief will go up from tho peoplo of this state now that It Is an nounced that Ernest Pollard of Nohawka. llfin ftuv ilia vuiiiiuit-.tru ntiwn. . be to Instruct the voter of the Just wt&tl to do on tho proposition of university re moval to working. Just why a hunch of self-constituted guardians of the people should organlza themselves Into a committee, establish' headquarters In one of Llnoon's nice ho tels and put a man In charge of head quarters In order to try and convince tho people of Nebraska that It is necessary to keep the state university within a stone's throw of the business center ofi Lincoln Is not very hard to understand, when one Is In a position to know some thing of the conditions which surround the whole scheme. Inrnlvril I nthc Qnestlnn. Were a proposition before the peonla of the state to move the state university; from Lincoln to some other town, It would be easy to understand why the) business Interests of Lincoln and tha whole people of the city would organize) to prevent the removal, but In this casa It Is only the moving of the university from a congested renter, where the nolser of street and railway traffic disturbs th (students and the smoke and dust Inci dent to that traffic makes It uncomfort able and unheathy, to a location only tw miles away, still within the city, where there will be ptentty of room and perfect quiet. What objections does this self-constl luted committee give for taking up th cause In behalf of tho commercial inter ests of tho capital city aa against tha best Interests of the future of what may tome day be a great university? 8om6 of them are as follows: That It will mean the abandonment at a targe number of good buildings and at others which have become very dear to the hearts of old members of the alumni because of past associations. That it will mean a loss to some people) who have built houses, expecting to board and room students. That many students will lose the chanc to get work In the stores and business; houses of the city, and thus wll not b able to work their way through school. That the social side of life for tha student will suffer because of the dls tance from the social life of the city, nnslness Aspect of Blatter. In answer to the first objection, it 19 safe to say that there Is not a member of, this committee who would consider sen timent one moment If he saw It was for) the best Interests of the future of his business or his farm to make a change-. No business man would think, for a mot ment of keeping his business1 In the old; building, no matter how sacred the as sociation, If In the interests of futura success and expansion he found somei other location which would suit him bet ter. He would build In any location anS abandon the old business house the verj? moment he saw that he could do better; somewhere else. Why will not the samej rule apply In the future development ofl the state university? It Is true that loss may fall on som? people who have built houses near tho university expecting to reap profits fron boarding the students. Unfortunately that la one of the propositions every man faces, when he Invests his mony. CouldJ every man be assured that every Invest ment he made would carry with It na chance of loss, what a Joy It would be to the man who had money to put into buildings. But unfortunately In this) rapid growing western country people ex pand, towns and cltlea grow, and as they grow some portion loses to the gain oC some other portion. If the future of tho University of Nebraska has got to bo hinged on the proposition that John Jones) and James Smith have built houses close) to the university and to move tho uni versity would cause a loss to Mr. Jones' and Mr. Smith, than the Pollard com mittee Is right In its contention and tha future of the university must be aband oned In order that Mr. Jones and Mr. (Continued on Page Two.)

It is a large, consistent uaer of newspaper space and it haa found that such advertising In creases business and wins tho good will of the public.
