'Midst tears of sorrow his poor form was
In a grave dug by a tariff-taxed spado.
Tom Piatt says the republicans can

Some of these days some discerning
and euterprising newspaper publisher
who wants to make his paper the best
edited democratic paper in America is
going to employ "Dick" Metcalfe, take
him east and pay him a salary up in
the five figures. But it will bo a sorry
day for democracy in Nebraska when
"Met" goes to some other state.
If the Chicago Chronicle's democracy
were as sound as its news service is ex

newspaper in America. But the Chica

Republicans are good at proportion.
Their claims of prosperity have just as
much foundation as their statements
concerning the cost of Bryan's house.
The latest report concerning the house
is that it will contain two mantles, each
costing $5,000. Bryan will sell them
both, pay freight to any point in Ne
braska and set them up for 10 per cent
of the alleged cost of one.

Anarchy! Treason! The man who
would thus speak of a president of the

A million republicans would shout
for the blood of a man who would
speak thus of a republican president,
and denounce him as an anarchist and
no hotter than an assassin nerved to

But hold on, my good republican
brother. No democrat made that es
timate of a president. Theodore Roose
velt pouncd those words, and he penned
them concerning a president of the

Scvoral republican organs arc sneer
ing at Uncle John Powers and declar
ing that ho is unfit to perform the duties
of secretary of state. Uncle John is
the youngest old man in Nebraska, as
all those who saw him act as chairman
of tho populist state convention at
Grand Island wilUtcstify. We'd walk
twenty miles to hear a debate between
Uncle John and any republican editor
in the state. But we'd feel almighty
soiry for the republican editor who
debated with him.
Dave Mercer is an expert handshaker.
And as a whole lot of union printers in
Omaha have discovered he is also an
expert promise shaker.
Chailey DeFranco has smoked out
tho statistical gentlemen who aro com
piling tho tax figures for tho railroads.
When they started out the statistical
sharps declared that their figures were
official because taken from tho "reports
of the interstate commerce commis
sion." Now they are declaring that
the interstate commerce commission's
figures are unrealiablc, full of palpable
errors and utterly worthless to those
seeking tho truth. Charley forced them
to claim errors in the commission's re
ports by showing that if the commis
sion's figures were correct the statisti
cal sharps wcro deliberately trying to
deceive tho people.
Dr. Lyman is the fusion candidate
for state treasurer. Dr. Lyman was
trcasmer of Adams county for four
years. During those four years ho

ever turned into the treasurer. That's

Jim Biennan is a sly joker. Tho
other day Jim went up to Dakota City
to attend a reunion and mingle with
tho people. Mickey was theie and
some friends wanted to introduce Jim.
' Not now," said Brennan. "Wait
a bit. O'ill mate him afther whoile."
Pretty soon Mickey began circulat
ing through the crowd, shaking hands
and giving the warm smile. Presently
he approached Jim, grasped his hand
"What is the name?"
"My naine is Brennan," replied Jim.
"And my name is Mickey," said
"indade, now, and ain't thot funny,"
remarked Jim. "My name is Brennan
and your name is Mickey, an by th"
powers I had a cousin onct named
Mickey Brennan. I t'ink you ought t'
vote f'r me on th' strength of it. O'im
the democratic candidate f'r commis
sioner. Have one o' my cards."
But "Our man Mickey" only shook
his head, looked dazed and reached
out for more handshakes.
It has been said that Mr, Hitchcock
deserves election because he has sacri
ficed much for tho democratic party.
He has made sacrifices, to be sure, but
that's not the reason why he should be
elected. He should be elected because
lis is a democrat, enthusiastic in his ad
vocacy of democratic principles, a
gentleman and not a political wirepuller,
a scholar and not a trafficker in politi
cal pie, a student of affairs and able to
work intelligently for the best interests
of the people at large. I happen to
know Mr. Hitchcock quite well. Hav
ing worked for him almost eight years
I am in a position to know what I am
talking about when I say he is a gentle
man, a scholar, a democrat, a man of
brains and full of tho zeal that makes
men useful when entrusted with the
duty of representing an intelligent con-
In a speech recently "Our Man
Mickey" paraded his wonderful honesty
by relating a personal experience.
"I boarded a street car in Omaha
recently with my family," said Mickey.
"There were seven of us in the party.
I gave the conductor 50 cents and he
gave me back 10 cents too much by
mistake. Now 10 cents is a little thing,
but I immediately called the conductor's
attention to it and gave him the dime,
because I wanted to improea a lesson
in honesty upon my children."
Whon a Polk county fanner read
"Our Man Mickov's" apooch, in which
this pleasing little incident was related,,
"It's darned jjood. thing for that
conduct-'that he vrai't trying to do
business with Mickey through tho bank
window. He'fl a lost that dime and
everything el- be had that wasn't
nailed d wn tight and fast."
If Frank Prout is ro elected tho rail
road combitio of Nebraska will provide
the brains to run the attorney gcneialn
office. Prout can provide nothing bul
If you want. to know a man who
stands four-square to ovory wind that
blows, knows tho right and daros to
fight for it, has a mind of his own and
is free to express it, and who is a demo
crat ftom skin to coro, just cast your
eyes in tho direction of Cleveland,
Ohio. There's wheta Tom Johnson
lives, and Johnson's tho man.
Tho worst that has over been said
about ,Mr. Hitchcock is that he is an
"aristocrat." That depends on what
wo mean when we say "aristocrat."
If bathing regularly, wearing good
clothes, avoiding tough resorts, attend
ing to business during business hours
and enjoying the society of friends after
business hours makes a man an "aris
tocrat," then Mr. Hitchcock is one.
But if by "aristocrat" we mean one
who thinks he is better than anybody
else, too good to associate with those
who toil and made of a superior grade
of clay if that's what wo mean, then
Mr. Hitchcock is not an aristocrat.
He is a genial, wholcsoulcd, kindly,
considerate gentleman. He manages
a business that requires the payment
of over $250,000 n year in wages, and
he meets every one of his employes on
a common level. It will be a gloiious
day for this country when "aristocrats"
like Gilbert M. Hitchcock arc elected
to congress in place of the ' good fel
lows" who seem to have the inside
track now. It's time we sent some
brains and less ability to carry booze;
more thinkeis and fewer drinkers,
more men of affairs and fewer men
with pulls, to congress to make laws
for us. ,j.
