Guessing on the Election
For a person who wishes to gain a
reputation for prognosticating election
returns it is safer to wait till after the
votes have hcen counted, anil then say,
"I told you so," than to hazard a guess
before hand; but as the editor of The
Herald has no reputation as a political
forecaster at stake and no particular
ambition to gain such a reputation, we
will venture next week to make a guess
as to the approximate majorities that
various candidates will receive in Box
Butte county. Of course we anticipate,
thai there' will be some wiseacres
among our esteemed contemporaries
who will wisely wait until after the
votes are all counted before expressing
an opinion as to the result of the elec
tion, and then sagely criticise The
Herald and tell their readers that they
knew all the while wherein our gue&s
We do not invite a compaiisoii of
our pre-election supposition to some
one else's post-election information,
but we shall be pleased if our Box
Butte county contempoiaries will next
week publish a statement of their
opinions as to what candidates will re
ceive majorities in this county and ttio
size of their majorities, and after elec
tion make a comparison with our esti
mates. We also invite our readers to send to
us for publication next week a guess on
the vote of this county for two or more
competing candidates, either county or
state candidates. To add a little to the
interest and make it somewhat of a
guessing contest, we will credit a year's
subscription to The Herald to the per
son guessing the closest to the majority
of any one candidate. All guesses to
be published should reach this office
before noon of Wednesday, October 27.
The Growing insurgents
Kansus Otty Stur, (rep.):
The insurgents of the extra session
of Congress are bigger men today then
when Congress adjourned. There
would be no use, no object, in saying
this if it were not true; but, being true,
it is not only a satisfaction to say it,
but it is well that it should be said, for
the cause of progressive government
deserves the utmoSt encouragement the
signs of the times reveal.
That was an interesting observation
that waSTmiTde" b Mr.v Harry Beach.
Needham, writer for Everybody's Mag
azine, in an interview published in The
Star of last week when he called at
tention to the fact that nearly all the
magazine editors of the country have
recognized the insurgent movement as
a great national event, filled with po
tential possibilities. Some of these
magazines have already given signifi
cant attention to the subject, and
others have planned extended treat
ment of the subject.
Mr. Needham's observations and in
formation in Kansas are in keeping
with the evidences that are continually
coming from the Great Middle West
evidences that the insurgents are con
stantly gaining in strength and in
fluence. President Taft's public de
fense of the tariff law and his tacit at
tempt to read the insurgents out of the
republican party have not made these
courageous leaders weaker with the
people, but have brought two elements
of strength: They have acquired the
element of sympathy that goes out to
them who are unjustly attacked, and
they enjoy the more assertive and out
spoken support that comes when good
men are made to fight for their princi
ples. The intelligence of the country recog
nizes the gross betrayal of the people
in the kind of revision made by Con
gress, and sees, too, that if the same
element that gained contiol of Con
gress and won the sanction of the
president in the tariff session' is per
mitted to continue to dominate, there
will be no hope for the other great re
forms in which the country is inter
ested. In fact, the people do not see how
President Taft is going to get the legis-
latinn Iir Reeks, and which he is dis
cussing on his big tour, unless he de
pends on the progressive leaders whom
1.0 lmo criticised for their part in the
tariff session. It is a foregone conclu
sion that in eveiy true leform involving
a great moral issue, the principle of the
square deal, the president is going to
be confronted with the same men and
the same alliances that defeated tariff
The hope of the country and of the
president so far as he contemplates
genuiuo reform lies in the insurgents
in the nreseut Cougross and in the in-
crease of their numbers in the utuct
