The Republicans of Cass county do
not propose to let thr primary law
determine who are to be the candi
dates for offices, but will take the bull
by the horns and make endorsements
at the county convention to be held
on the 1 1th inst., at Unon. Of course,
the primaries will ultimately determine
the choice, but aspirants arc assured
in no uncertain manner that they might

if he does, means tint he cannot keep

suffered and how he will take his med

not. And now to set at rest or to

Notwithstanding the strong pub
lic senumeui lor county option in
Nebraska, there is going ;o be a stren
uos effort made to side-track the
issue. And there is every probability
that it will succeed. The practical
politicians, the office seekers, are loath
to break with such a strong organized
force as the liquor interests. Here is
a united element with a tremendous
financial interest at stake, who will
spend time and unlimited money to
carry their point. Party principles
and all principles will be sacrificed to

protect their selfish interests. Party
leaders are straining every nerve to
keep county option out of the plat
forms. Every sophistry and argument
will be advanced to "save the party"
and pressure will bo brought to bear
on every office holder and every as
pirant for office. In opposition to
this is the vast unorganized moral
sentiment of the state, which has no
selfish interest that will induce them
to Bpend their time or money to win
a victory for right and righteousness.
It is a perfect organization against a
mob, and we all know that a small
army under discipline can rout many
times their number of unorganized
undisciplined men. The state and coun
county conventions will be held un
der the old-fashioned .caucus and
convention plan, and the organization
always wins unless combatted by a
stronger organization. Unless the
individual voters who want county
option turn out to the caucuses and
elect county option delegates to the
county convention, the issue will be
side-tracked at the state convention.
Unless the people take sufficient in
terest to go to their paity caucus
(and past experience is that they will
not) then therefore there will be no
reason to expect a county option plank
in any of the state platforms. Albion
WHAT DURKETT HAS DONE.
Senator IKirkctt comes home feel
ing well satisfied with his work during
the past session. He is greatly pleased
over the much good legislation that
has been enacted, and says that
during his twelve years in Congress
there has never been a session when
so much good progressive legislation
has been passed as at the one just
closing. In addition to the general
public legislation he says there has
never been a session when he was called
upon for so much special legislation
for Nebraska as at this one. '
The Congrcssiona record shows
that the .Senator has been a busy man
for he has introduced 167 bills, offered
15 amendments to the legislation pend
ing, presented over three ' thousand
petitions from constituents to the
Senate, addressed the Senate on 02
different occasions, that he has never
missed a vote, except on the oOth of
May when he was making a flying
trip to Lincoln for his decoration day
The Record also shows that he passed
'26 special pension bills for the old
soldiers, secured an appropriation of
$100,000 for the Lincoln Post Office
building, $15,000 for a site for a pub
lic building at Chadron, $25,000 for
a rifle range in Nebraska an appro
priation to build employes' quarters,
blacksmith s shop and a Superin
tendent's cottage at the Genoa Indian
school, $25,000 to establish a fish
hatchery in Nebraska.
Also that he passed his bill giving
settlers on reclamation projects the
right to transfer their title after thev
had lived there the period required
for homestead entry, notwithstanding
the fact that they had not proven up
their case under the reclamation law.
Also he passed the Omaha Indian',
Bill for the settlement of the accounts
of the Omaha Indians with the govern
ment. This is a matter that has been
pending in Congress and that different
Senators and Representatives have
been trying to enact into law for 'the
last dozen or fifteen years.
He also passed a law permitting the
Indians of Richardson county to co
operate with the citizens for the drain
ing of the Nemaha valley, amended the
federal court law and secured a favor
able report upon his bill for the cs
tablishnicnt of a School of Forestry
at Nebraska City. Also a favorable

MAKING A SOFT PLACE
Another announcement from Mr.
Bryan may be expected shortly in
which two events that have transpired
whilp he was out of the country may
be expected to cut a figure.
The first of these is the final procla
mation by Governor Shallenbcrger
declining to accede to Mr. Bryan's de
mand that he rceouvene the legislature
in special session to submit an initia
tive and referendum amendment to
the state constitutuon.
The second is the unexpected pro
nouncement of Richard L. Metcalfe,as
sociate editor of the Commoner, at the
Columbus banquet against inserting
a county option plank advocated by
Mr. Bryan into the democratic state
The question that is being asked on
all sides is, Was Mr. Metcalfe acting
by himself or did he have a hunch by
wireless from the distinguished passen
ger on a trans-Atlantic steamer.
The Metcalfe proposal to relegate
county option as a locul issue to the
respective legislative districts, where
it properly belongs, has sound and con
clusive argument behind it. But Mr.
Bryan had gone on record uncondi
tionally for a county option pledge in
the event that the governor should fail
to call the legislature according to the
Bryan plans and specifications and it
would look, therefore, as if Associate
Editor Metcalfe were trying go fix up
a son piace ior r.tutor liryan s airship
Let us simply recall a few sentenci
from the speech which Mr. Bryan mad
just before he started for Europe in
the hall which he lured for that pur
pose in Omaha.
Here is one:
When I returned to the state
after an absence of some months
I announced that in case the in
itiative and referendum was not
submitted it would be necessary
then to meet county option as an
issue, and that I was in favor of a
platform declaring in favor of it.
Here is another:
If the liquor question must be
disposed of before we can secure
the initiative and referendum,
then the sooner we dispose of it
the better. ,
Here is still another:
I will not admit until we are vot
ed down in the convention or at
the primary that a majority of the
democrats are willing to take or
ders from the liquor dealers.
I still hope that we may have a
special session of the legislature
and secure the submission of the
initiative and referendum, but if
that is made impossible by sordid
interests that have thrown them
selves across the path of this pop
ular measure, then our first bus
iness is to remove the obstruction,
and with the next democratic con
vention as the forum we shall in
vite the champions of the brewers
and liquor dealers to show cause
why they shall not be driven from
politics in the state of Nebraska.
Evidently, as wc have said, either
Mr. Metcalfe is smoothing a path for
Mr. Bryan to back down and fixing a
soft place for him to alight, or Mr
Bryan will soon give orders for Mr
Metcaifo to back up, and will want to
know what influences have been at
work in the Commoner office during
his absence. lite.

although it proved quite painful.

Never In Wreck.
A well known Union man was a
recent caller at the News-IIeraM of
fice, bringing with him, a few particu
lars from the scene of the automobile
accident, which happened at Hum
bolt last Tuesday. The Union man
visited the spot a short time after the
wreck occurred and found things in
a great state of confusion. Three
wheels of the machine were torn into
small bits and the body and front part
of the car were battered and smashed
The car had been turned right side up
and the visitor commenced to examine
the engine. Seeing, to his surprise, that
it seemed to be in fairly good shape
he turned on the juice and cranked it
up. The motor started up just as
sweetly as it ever had and ran as
smoothly as though the car were in
tact. The owner had estimated the
machine is. damaged beyond repair,
however, it will cost in the neighborhoo
ghood of $600 to put it in running or
The last report received from the
injured showed that Picrson was still
at the Avery house where he had been
removed immediately following the
accident. It is thought his spine is
hurt, but the extent of the injury may
not be definitely ascertained for several
days yet. Cross finds his bruisis very
painful, but is able to be around,
while the other men, Running, duney
and Upton are feeling all right, with
the exception of a few black and blue
soots and stiff limbs.
