MAUPIN's WAY OF THINKING AFTER THK
Election's past and lost or won, according
as you view it,
But if you've lost just ginger up; it does no
good to rue it.
There's much to do to push ahead the
town in which you're living,
So grab a hold and don't let go, your best
Don't knockl The knocker is a man who
injures all his neighbors,
And strives to nullify tho good they do by
Don't knockl But when a move is made
yield to it your compliance
And help to whoop it good and strong for
booming young Alliance.
Election's past and won or lost 'tis use
less to regret it;
And if you've had it handed you 'tis best
that you forget it.
There's work that you should haste to do
a work that's now awaiting.
So grab a hold and set to work, new ways
of trade creating.
Don't knockl For God a knocker hates
with hatred that's eternal,
And has for him a punishment ir red-hot
Don't knock! But when a move is made
bid failure flat defiance,
And join the crowd and set to work for
hustling young Alliarce.
Election's pas,t and we hive won or else
we've been snowed under
And now tho game of politics can quickly
go to thunder. '
There's work on hand that's calling us and
won't take no for answer,
And there's enough that must be done to
call out every man, sir.
Don't knockl This life's too short for that;
spit on your hands and rustle.
Let's set a pace that other towns to keep
in sight must hustle.
Don't knock! But in a future bright let's
put our full reliance,
And whoop it up until the world knows
where to find Alliance.
Every now and then some knowledge
ous gent confidentially gives out the
information that lie knows the Com
moner is a losing proposition and that
Mr. Bryan now heartily wishes him
self out of it. There are a few Lin
coln republicans who are occasionally
called east, and on these occasions they
never lose an opportunity to "knock."
Now it's nobody's business, save the
men who advertise therein, what the
Commoner is doing in a business way,
but for the benefit of a few who seem
wonderfully interested therein I will
say that between July x and October i
of the present year of our Lord, 1902,
the Commoner added upwards of 45,000
subscribers to its list all new aud all
paid a year ahead. We know a whole
lot of live republican newspapers that
would like to be that "dead."
Next November there will be one jus
tice of the supreme court and two
regents of the State University to elect.
Wait for next November.
It is often remarked that "corpora
tions have no souls," which may be
true, but most men who manage corpo
rations have souls. The retirement of
Edward Dickinson from the position of
general manager of the Union Pacific
may not be of especial interest to Alli
ance people, but it is of especial
interest to the writer. Here and now
I want to add my voice to the general
tribute to his ability and character, and
to again express my obligations to him
for a great service he rendered me in
one of the darkest periods of my life.
Four years ago next Thanksgiving
day my baby boy was stricken with the
dread disease, diphtheria. Mother and
babe were visiting in North Bend, Neb.,
and I was at my desk in the World
Herald office. A telegram summoned
me to North Bend, and when I arrived
there the physician told me that an
operation was the only chance of sav
ing the baby's life. There was not a
, moment to spare. I called up Gilbert
M. Hitchcock by telephone and he
called up the leading surgeon of Omaha.
He then called up General Manager
Dickinson and asked if a special could
be run from Omaha to North Bend,
explaining the circumstances.
"An engine and way car will be at
the depot when the surgeon gets there,"
said Mr. Dickinson.
And it was. The surgeon and his
assistant boarded the way car, the en
gineer opened the throttle arid the
special started. One regular passenger
train and two regular freight trains
were sidetracked to make way for that
special, and in just 70 minutes the dis
tance of sixty-one miles between Omaha
and North Bend was covered the sur
geon arriving at the bedside of the baby
in an hour and a half after I had spoken
to Mr. Hitchcock.
It was, however, too late to save the
little one, and he passed into life eter
nal before tho surgeon's vork vas well
Mr. Hitchcock guaranteed the pay
ment of the special, and a week after
wards "Sandy" Woodbridge, city edi
tor of the World-Herald, went down
to Union Pacific headquarters to pay
for it. Ho asked how much it was and
Mr, Dickinson named the regular rato
for a special train, $2 a mile.
Woodbridge started to fill out U10
check and while ho was writing Mr.
Dickinson asked him about tho result
of the trip. As Woodbridge told the
story of the baby's death the tears
came to Mr. Dickinson's eyes and ho
nervously fumbled the papers on his
desk. Then ho reached over and took
tho check from Woodbridge's hand,
toro it up and threw the pieces into the
"Tell Maupin I sympathize with
him. There'll be no charge for the
special. Excuse me, please; I'm very
Is it any wonder the employes of the
Union Pacific arc sorry to see Edward
Dickinson go? My story is but a
feeble example of his character. He
was the steadfast friend of every em
ploye of the road, no matter how hum
ble, and each one, from section man to
chief clerk could approach him and find
a sympathetic listener.
If in his future work Mr. Dickinson
accomplishes for himself and his em
ployes all I wish for him and them,
then he and they will have all that
mortal men can desire.
There is a man in Lincoln who is
very frank and honest, as this true
little story will attest.
He is given to using tobacco to ex
cess, knowing that it is injurious. But
he loves the weed. Some time ago
his wife persuaded him to try a well
advertised cure for the tobacco habit,
and for two weeks he took it religiously
and according to directions. Then he
threw the medicine away.
"What on earth did you throw it
away for?" queried his wife.
" 'Cause the dd stuff wac curing
me," he replied.
Chancellor Andrews knows how to
talk to young men. He is not a spread
eagle crator, but has a plain, blunt
way of saying things, and the Univer
sity boys respect him for it. After the
Minnesota football game, in which
Nebraska won a notable victory, the
students took the town in their delirium
of joy, and perpetrated somo things
that were not exactly right.
Chancellor Andrews said nothing
until a day or two before tho game with
the Haskell Institute team. Then he
made a little talk during the convoca
tion period in which he counselled
moderation. " Don't do anything that
injures property, young men. Rejoice
over victories, and I'll rejoice with you.
But do no wrong. I would rather see
you beaten by the Indians than see you
beaten by the devil."
That was all, but the boys caught
the force of the remarks. They de
feated the Indians overwhemingly and
had a great jubilee, but they conducted
it like young gentlemen.
During his campaign W. H. Thomp
son advanced an argument that oppo
nents of government ownership of the
coal mines would do well to ponder
over. He cited the case ot tne irriga
tion law, and then said: " If it is
right and proper for the government to
take the waters that flow down tho
mountain sides, store it and direct it
over the arid lands for the benefit of
mankind, why would it not be proper
for the government to take the coal
that lies benath the ground and store it
and direct it for the benefit of man
kind?" Will some opponent of government
ownership please answer?
By the way, is there any reason why
Alliance should not be the central
wholesale distributing point for all
points nortli, south and west on the
Thanksgiving day ought to be a great
day for all of us. The winners may
be thankful they won and the losers
may be thankful that they are alive.
Let us all give thanks.
I know a family in Lincoln that
could make good use of a turkey on
Thursday, November 27th. It needn't
bo such a gosh-awful big one, either,
but it would taste better if it came
from Alliance. Of course I'm not
going to give the name of the family,
but if some good Samaritan in Alliance
family gets it.
Dr. Horn is writing mighty interest
ing letters. Perhaps ho does not poso
ns n humorist, but in his letter last
week ho perpetrated a delicious bit of
humor. Speaking of Great Salt Lake
he mentioned tho saline properties of
tho water and said: "Onco tasted it
will never be forgotten." If ovor you
have tasted it you'll appreciate the
humor of tho remark. Wowl There's
only one thing that " nigger gin " won't
remove, nnd that's tho tasto of Salt
Lako water. Ever drink " nigger gin?"

There's a young lady in Lincoln who
knows more about photography now
than she did six months ago. When
tho Burlington passenger department
announced some valuable prizes for tho
best photos of Nebraska scenery this
young lady determined to enter the
contest. She read up on amateur
photography and invested a neat little
Bum in a camera. She made several
excursions and took numerous shots at
the scenery she selected. Then she
took the plates to a photographer for
The photographer sought in vain to
develop something, but despite his
best efforts tho plates failed to show a
mark. When the young lady called
for her negatives the photographer
asked her a few questions.
" O, I just selected tho objects I
wanted to photograph," she exclaimed,
Mand pointed the tube at them. Then
I pressed the bulb."
" Is that all?" queried the photog
rapher. " Why, yes; that's what the direc
Then the photographer retired into
his dark room and laughed, and laughed
The young lady had forgotten to
take the metal cap fiom the lens.
This consignment of stuff was written
late Monday night. If it isn't up to
standard please make duo allowances
for a few things. It is the night bo
fore election and tho writer don't know
whether ho is licked or a winner.
Trying to write under such circum
stances has its drawbacks. At 1 1 129
p m., November 3, it looks as if I am
defeated for the senate by a majority
ranging anywhere between 1,800 and
77,000. But, thank the Lord, there's
a bushel of taters in the cellar and
4,000 pounds of hard coal in the coal
shed. If anything more is needed the
Lord will provide.
Captain W. R. Akers will Rive his lee

the evening there will be moonlight and
with the ranchers distance is no embarrass
ment. The lecture is highly spoken of.
Let there be a large attendance. No ad
