As wo Brow older, nnd see
more of tho world, nnd letirn
more of the workings of govern
mental affairs, the more heartily
are wo in favor of putting ques
tions of government and public
policy directly up to the people
and letting them decide what
they want; and tho more cheer
fully are we willing to abide by
tho majority's decision when ox-.
pressed unbiased by partisan
prejudice or confusion of issues,
We believe in "Let tho people
rule," not because that sentence
has been made a party slogan,
but because it expresses a prin
ciple that ought to bo funda
mental with all political parties.
One of the most encouraging
signs of the times is tho great
demand that is being made to let
voters express their opinions and
wishes in municipal, state and
national government; and the
yielding to this demand by many
leaders of both the great politi
In our humble opinion, one of
the best laws over enacted by a
republican legislature of the
state of Nebraska is the one per
mitting cities to adopt the in
itiative and referendum for the
settlement of questions relating
to municipal government. And
by tho same token, the worst
thing done by the democratic
legislature, that did many good
things, was defeating the bill
for a law to adopt the initiative
and referendum in state govern
ment. In the issue of The Herald of
December 80th, we called atten- (
tion to themportance of adopt
ing the initiative and referendum
in Alliance, and cuggstrss: ind
requesting the circulation of pe
titions for an election to vote on
the adoption of the same. Since
then petitions have been circu
lated and signed by a larger
number of voters than was
necessary to make the calling
of the election legal. So far as
we have been able to learn the
sentiment in favor of adoption
is general, but would probably
be more nearly unanimous if the
scope of the initiative and refer
endum were more fully known.
Some seem to think that only
one question is to be, or can be,
settled thereby. This is a great
mistake. Not only may the
question of licensing saloons l)e
decided by direct vote of tho
people, thereby eliminating the
ill will that is so often unneces
sarily engendered, where the
question hinges upon the elec
tion of candidates for city offices,
and which is so detrimental to a
city's growth and business in
terests; but other questions of
vital importance to a city's wel
fare may be voted upon and de
cided by direct vote. One of the
most important questions com
ing up for settlement, as a city
increases in size and commercial
importance, is that of franchises,
such as electric light, telephone,
gas, street railways, etc., and
the old plan of leaving these im
portant matters entirely in the
hands of a few men is fast play
ing out, and no up-to-date city
will want to retain such a sys
tem long when an opportunity is
offered to adopt a better method.
We apprehend that it will not
be many years until a city that
refuses, or neglects, to adopt
the initiative and referendum,
when there is opportunity to do
so, will be tho laughing stock of
the public outside of its corporate
limits. " ' v
While tho east is crying out in nil its
misery about tho worst winter in ninny
venrs, wo can't complain. A threshing
crew at tho Russell farm last Thursday

in their shirt sleeves, too. Coino to
