Reasons for Wanting a
The election for 1909 is over,
nml we do not wish to rehash
political arguments that wore
applicable only to this campaign,
but there are some vital princi
ples which will be as pertinent
in future campaigns ns in the
one just closed; and it will make
far better citizenship and im
proved political conditions to
have these principles thorough
ly instilled into the minds of the
Wnilo others were issuing
statements and appeals to voters
on the eve of election, tho most
or all of which related to tho
county election, the editor of
The Herald gavo vent to his in
terest in tho state election by
issuing a circular headed, "An
Appeal to Progressive llopubli
cans.'' Following is the circular,
except tho heading:
This is not a "roorback." It
is an appeal to a class of persons
whom I know to bo interested,
as I am, in good government. I
have been called a republican
editor of a democratic paper. Be
that as it may, In the Interest of
good government I am Intensely
Interested In the election of tho
democratic candidates for jus
tices of the supreme court of
Nebraska this year. I have been
a resident of this state for moro
than twenty-four yeais, during
much of that time being engaged
in school work. For moro than
twenty years there has been a
demand among school men of
Nebraska for a law that would
separate the election of school
oflicers, Including county and
state superintendents, from party
politics. At last, after asking
and waiting for such a law for
so many years, it was enacted
by the legislature last winter
and signed by the governor.
The law was made to include the
election of a nonpartisan judi
ciary, which made It all tho bet
ter. There was rejoicing among
the best and most patriotic voters
of all parties. But tho law lies
dead, killed by the decision of a
partisan supreme court; the de
cision, however, was not unani
mous. Judge Letton, a patriotic
republican who in legal ability
is without doubt the peer of any
other member of tho court, and
Judge Dean, the only democratic
member of the court, vigorously
dissented. I believe that there
arc many republican voters in
this state who feel as I do that
the decision which knocked out
this most wholesome law, and
winch decision was, seemingly,
to say the least, biased by par
tisan motives, was an outrage on
the state. To such voters in
Box Butte county I wish to ap
peal for votes to help elect men
to the supremo bench of the
state who may be depended upon
to render decisions unbiased by
their own selfish interests in an
ensuing election. Many of the
best republican papers of the
state, as well as the leaders of
the progressive element of the
republican party, are supporting
one or moro of tho democratic
candidates this year for justices
of the supreme court. Tho Lin
coln Daily Star, one of the lead
ing republican papers of Ne
braska, is warmly supporting
tho three democratic candidates.
In its issue of Saturday, Oct,
!50th, appeared the following ed
itorial, which I would have glad
ly published in The Herald but
for the fact that it appeared
after tho last issue preceding the
election had been, printed.
JOHN W. THOMAS,
Editor Alliance Herald
Nov. 1, 1909.
THE LINCOLN STAR EDITORIAL
There's been a great deal of ridicu
lous republican clamor of late over the
attitude taken by the democratic can
didates for the supreme court and by
their party managers. Tho republican
press aud republican speakers and
writers have had much to say about
the nonpartisan court idea as pro
mulgated by the democrats, the pur
pose being to show that the democrats
are insincei e aud inconsistent. Through
out the stato tepublicans are putting
the issue something like this:
The democrats are shouting for a
non-partisan court with oue breath and
urging the election of the democratic
candidates with the next. They ask
republicans to vote for democratic can
didates on the theory that such action
will take the court out of politics but
plead with the democrats to stick to
their party and elect their own party
judges. In other words, the democrats
favor non-partisan voting for republi
cans and partisan voting for democrats,
What sort of consistency is this?
At first glanco it would strike tho
average person that tho position of tho
democrats is inconsistent and that tho
republicans havo tho better of tho ar
gument. Howover, an analysis of con
ditions pertaining to tho coming elec
tion docs not justify this conclusion It
must be admitted that the people of
the stato generally, without regard to
parties, would like to have tho courts
removed from party influences. This
sentiment found expression in tho non
partisan judiciary law enacted by tho
last legislature, which happened to bo
democratic. Under its operation had
it not been declared unconstitutional
by tho Btato court tho nomination and
election of judges would havo been ac
complished without regard to parties or
party organizations. Tho people would
havo nominated men because of tho
men's fitness for office and would havo
voted for or against them on tho same
issues, and not because they belonged
to one party or another.
Tho people, however, havo been de
prived of these 'privileges through tho
failure of tho new statuto to stand tho
supremo court test. Tho next best
thing thoy can have, therefore, is a bi
partisan court. This will not be a non
partisan court, ior "non" means "not,"
and a non-partisan court would, there
fore, bo a not-partisan court ono in
the nomination and election of which
partisanship had played no part. On
the other hand, "hi" means "two,"
and a bi-partisan court,
means a two-partisan, or a
Under existing conditions a two party
court is the nearest approach wo can
make to a non-partisan court in Ne
braska at this time, The theory that
such a court is not as desirable an a
non-partisan court but better than a
one-party court is a proposition which
tho people will act upon next Tuesday.
Personally, wo beliovo a two-party
court is preferable to a one-party court,
and, incidentally, we believe the masses
of the citizens of tho stato hold tho
same belief in a broad, general way.
If they do, thoy will havo a chance on
Tuesday to establish such a state su
preme court as will reflect their ideas
of tho best that can be had.
Getting back to the democrats and
their position, it must strike the un
biased person that they aro perfectly
consistent in urging democrats to stick
to the democratic candidates and at
tho same time asking republicans to
break away from their party lines for
the purpose of establishing a court
which shall bo as nearly non-partisan
as we can make it now. It should bo
remembered that there aro seven
members ot the Nebraska supreme
court. All but ono of them are now
republicans. The ono democrat and
two other democrats aro candidates for
the three vacancies, as are three re
publicans If the three democrats are
elected tho court will still contain a
majority of republicans, the division
being four to three.
If the people want a bi-partisan
court and we believo they do they
should not liesitato to vote for the three
democratic nominees. Fortunately, no
question can bo raised as to the qualifi
cations ot the democratic trio. They
are admittedly the eqlials of the repub
lican candidates. The only argument
that can bo made against them is tho
mere fact that they aro democrats. In
view of the partisan division of the
present court it would seem that the
election of the three democrats Sulli
van, Good and Dean would make for
greater progress and greater good to
the state than the election of the three
republicans Sedgwick, Fawcett and
