Henry C. Davis, the democratic can
didate for vice president, though 83
years of ago, is making n vigorous cam
pal ,11 lour through Maryland and Vir

In tlit western trip recently made by
I airbanks, Dollivor, ot al, there was
a noticablc lack of speeches when the
state of Colorado was reached. No
doubt tlio recent outrages perpetrated
by Gov. 1'eabody on tho ininurs of the
state -and conscious of this fact, the
vice presidential aggregation preferred
not to add insult to injury to the votors
A big meeting is planned for Lincoln
October 2.1, when Joseph V. Folk,
democratic candidate for governor of
MLsouii, will participate. Governor
La Folletto, icpublican candidate for
governor of Wisconsin, has sent word
that he cannot come owing to the
ardinus campaign in Wisconsin., but
ho stated that ho would liko to discuss
railroad mattora a little for tho bailout
of Nebraska lopublicans of the in

world. Only a few months ago the
railway corporations were laying off em

are handicapped because of the scarci.
tv of help with which to operate the
systems. If the purse proud stock
holders would sacrifice a tenth part of
their unjust profits by keeping those
men at work during the dull season,
there would not bo a cry today for
htlp to increase their coffers.
At Council Bluffs, Senator Fairbanks
on Ins stumping tour, stated that tho
reason ho was for the republican party
was because the republican party was
for him, and that his party was founded
the on "principle of otcrnal righteous-
UeSS.' It is easv to nnfWstntvl I?-,:-

party's claim to infallibity we must

Tho Gifted O'Neill Orator Entcrtnin,
on Interested Audience The
Tax Dodger and Pass
A good sized audience greeted the
Hon. M. F. Hnrrington at tho opcrn
house Tuesday evening and those pro
gent wore well paid for attending. Mr.
Hnrrington is tut interesting Inlker mid
is pouciMcd of a store of general
knowledge regarding governmental af
fairs both national And stnte, and the
grand feature of his ap'aech rested in
the fact that it was entirely devoid of
partisan prejudice or political doggctel
or mistntcmonts. In iact, it irmy bo said
that it would bo hard to dotormino by
many Uio was lauded most the re
publican or democatic candidate for
president. But when Mr. Harrington
touched on state legislation lie wont
after the violator of the law and tax
dodgers without gloves. The speaker
pointed out plainly how the railway
corporations of Nebtaska wexe dodging
their obligations in this respect in a
manner to bring shame to tho honor of
tho commonwealth. Mr. Harrington
doalatud that under the present minimis;
t rat ion tho Union Pacific railway alone
was miking a profit of 46 per cent, or
nufttly if not 2 per cent per month on
th capital invested, while corporations'
tH.os were lower than that of other
tax pavers of the stntn. Thin. Im
said, uns only an illustration of tho
wholesale corruption going on, and
which the democratic and pooplo's
parties ate actively ongagod in this
campaign trying to stamp out. Mr.
Harrington's statement, taken fiom
the topoit of the investment of the Un
ion Pacific together with its net earn
ings, shows a profit of 40 per cent.
After paying the full running expense
of the toad including the president's
salary, which amounts to 54 per cent,
the above enormous surplus goes out
of the state to a few stockholders in the
oast to enhance lhair coffers at the es
pouse of the people of Nebraska who
today are paying the highest freight
rates of any state in the Union.
Tho speaker also dwelt upon tho base
evil of tho pass system that is corrupt
ing the state of Nebraska, and ho ox-
plained its workings so explicitly that
there was no room for contradiction.
In the state there are hundreds of pol
iticians, from the big fish to the small
fry, tiding on passes and trip tickets
secured through the earner companies
in return for political favors. In this
corrupt practice is also included the
express, telegraph and oil companies.
The mulct handed method of dealing
out favors to delegates and candidates
is so adroit that many a man is igno
rant of the fact that riien he accepts
a faor from these corporations, through
tho medium of a friend, he is playing
directly 111 tho hands of the lobbyists.
Likewise members of the legislatute
and state senate are entangled in tho
web of the corporate spider. Hon.
George W. Borge, the democratic and
people's parties' candidate for gover
nor was nominated for the avowed pur
pose of overcoming this curse in the
stiite and he has declared, in the event
of his election, to accomplish this end.
Mr. Hauingtou compared Mr. Bertro
with the fearloss candidates for guber
natorial honors in Missouri and Wis
consin, Messrs. Folk and La Fol
letto, the former a democrat and the
latter a republican, and so far forgot
his paity affiliations as to declare were
ho a resident of either state he would
cast his vote for one of the candidates.
The records of both Folk and La
Folletto were made on their fights
against tax dodgers and thievos gener
ally in their respective states and it is
for the saino reason that George Beige
is a candidate for governor in Nebras
ka. Mr. Harrington also made it
clear that a vote for Governor Mickey
meant a vote in support of the tax dodg
ing corporations, for ho was placed in
nomination mainly by their efforts, as
sisted by the clement that ride on an
nual and trip passes.
The mombors of the legislature and
senate are also instrumental in bring
ing about the desired reform and for
that reason Mr. Harrington urged the
votors of his audience to cast their bal
lots for Mr. Robert Graham, the peo
ple's candidate.as against Frank Curry,
the republican aspiraut, who in a
former session of the legislature was
counted atnoug those voting against
the bill to increase tho taxation of the
railway and express companies of the

moval of Rev. Father McNamara to

Galvin's return is not known, it is
thought he will be here next week.
Father Barry, during bis short stay in

his acquaintance has ripened into close
friendship, which will not soon be for
gotten. An associated press despatch from
Lincoln states that II. G. Leavitt of
Omaha made application last Saturday
to the State Board of Irrigation for an
appropriation of water from the North
Platte river for an immense canal pro
ject. The application filed is supposed
to be a part of an amendment to the
rights gi anted the Farmer's Canal
company. In the construction of the
canal Mr. Leavitt stated in his appli
cation that he expected lo spend Si,
548,000 and to irrigate 126,000 acres
of land. The'headgate will be con
structed in Scotts Bluff county near
Mitchell, and tho canal will be iso
miles in length, ending near Bayard,
Cheyenne county, in Red Willow creek.
The canal will go through Scotts Bluff,
Sioux, and Cheyenne counties and is
lo be completed by 1914. The new
venture is to bear the name of the
