New Party Same Old Methods.
Despite its idol's fierce denunciation
of the old parties, the projected new
party is employing the very same
method, and the very same machinery.
Hdre wo see the new third party con
vention being organized by a nntional
committeo made up of one member
from each state, this national committeo
b'cing absolutely self-constituted with
out even pretense of n popular commis
sion. "'Hero we see this committee claiming
Co typify reform and emancipation start
ing out with closed doors and secret
sossions to avoid the publicity accorded
by the old parties.
Hercfwo see contesting delegations
coming up from the southern states
whoso electoral votes are already fore
closed. Hero we see the negro question again
rising as a propetual puzzel inescapable
by any party promising equal rights to
' Hero we see this self-constituted
national committee rolieving the con
tention of the necessity of selecting its
tomporary chairman and other officers.
And above all, we see the convontion
mado up of delegates choson, not by
direct primary, but hand-picked, .find
.often in direct violation of the prirtiary
laws of the states they are supposed to
In a nutshell wo seo n convention
built oh oxcoriation of tiie bosses, yet
with its own program prearranged and
itsnction in every detail fore-ordained
without leaving delegates the slightest
f roedom of choice. '

Bryan's Estimate of Roosevelt. ,
(An analysis by W. J. Bryan in "The
"Ho criticises our tariff; of course
he does this, because ho stands for tho
doctrine of taxation of the many for
tho benefit of tho few, and ho has done
nothing to relieve the peoplo of the ox
tortioh now being practised upon thorn
through high tariff schedules.
"On tho trust question his position
is radically wrong and probably ac
counts for tho support which he is re
ceiving from some of the trusts.
"Corporations engaged in legitimate
business can and should bo regulated.
but a private monopoly Is different it
should not be permitted to exist. Reg
ulation was tried under Mr. Roosovelt
hlmsolf and trusts grow and fattenod
under mm, Ono trust, tho stool trust
the worst of all secured from him
1 permission to swallow up its largest
rival, and his most consplcious suppor

Vj!Mr, ' Roosevelt has recominondod
federal incorporation the vory thing
that.trustB desire. Tho trusts want
rcliof from atato laws and Mr. Rooso
yelt is tho first president to join them
in advocating this legislation. On tho
trut question Mr. Roosevelt is hand-In-hand
with predatory wealth. His policy
on thfs subject is not only not progres
sivo but is reactionary and dangerous.
"But Mr. RooBovolt'a errors aro not
wondbred at His wholo bias is wrong,
Ho is moro Hamiltonian than Ham
ilton himself. No public man since tho
government was formed has treated
constitutional limitations so contempt
uouisly. He conculdea his Outlook edi
torial with these significant words: The
progressive would discard those limita
tions surviving from the past that
qamper and interfere with the progress
of tho peoplo, and turning forward
would insist that ninety million peoplo
of the nation should bo permitted to do
whatever ja necessary for the wolfare
of tho nation and for securing social
Away with tho constitution and lot
us decide what tho people need and
thenrdo it for them I That is the
Roosevelt program. He has a passion
for power such a passion as no othor
president ovor had. No other president
over felt so reholious ngainst the re
strictions which our forefathers thought
it wise to throw about tho oxecutivo
' "In his Osawatomio speech, as inter
preted afterwards in tho Outlook,yJio
outlined his policy, first, tho absorption
by tho general government of much of
the powornow oxerclscdby tho states;
B3Cond, tho absorption by the federal
executive of much of tho power now
exercised by all by other departments,
nd, third, a president who will bo
overlooked to as the stcwart of the
people. This is not popular govern
ment; it is despotism. Add to this
centralization of government a man of
Mr. Rooscvelt'B temjwrament and you
have the man on horseback."
Tho Sidney Tolegraph looks at it this
way; "Tho man who cnlls himself a re
publican .and yet supports the now
party movement may deceive himself,
but cannot fool othors. No service he
may have rendered tho republican party
can give him any claim to the recogni
tion of republicans if in this exigency
he gives countenance to and joins hands
with those who are planning tho over
throw of the party. The citizen who
renounces his republicanism and enters
the democratic ranks enn bo respected.
But there can bo no respect for tho one
who while professing to be u republican
unites with conspirators against the
party ho had been affiliated with. The
time is at hand for every citizen to de
cide under which flag ho will sorvo and
to declare his decision without qualifi
cation or reservation. In the impend
ing conflict thero must be no trimmers
or temporizers. "
Cattle at South Omaha firmed up
last week and sold from 25 to
GO cents higher than the preceding
week. The best beef cattle sold as high
as $9.75 and feeders as high
as $7.00. The week closed with top
notch hogs selling nt $8.15. The re
ceipts of cattle nt South Ompha last
week were less than half tho number
In tho corresponding week last year.
There is no evidunco of n reduction in
the price of meat, on the contrary
higher prices may bo expected.
"Let tho people rule." That has been
Roosevelt's cry. Yet ho approves a
plan to seize republican organizations
wherever possible, having republican
electors who arc willing to betray their
party vote for him instead of for the
republican nominee for president, and
preventing "tho people" from having
any opportunity to voto for Taft, even
though they desire to do so. Consistency

parties and candidates, including Bull

The Roosevelt men now nominated as
republican candidates for" presidential
electors from Nebraska should cither
resign or declare their intention of vot
ing for Taft. If thoy resign their places
can bo filled by men who are republicans,
and tho bull moosers can name their
own electoral ticket. This acjtion would
bo honest and regular, and thero would
be no masquerading in false disguise.
In tho majority report filed bv the
congressional committee appointed to
investigate the United States steel cor

former President Roosevelt for mnking

Bale Your Hay and Sell It
THERE is always a ready market at a good
price for baled hay. It can be handled
easily. It prevents waste. Baling is
most profitable when you use I H C pull power
presses requiring either one or two horses;
or I H C motor, presses using 3, 4, or 6-horse
power I H C engiries. Both styles have three
separate bale chamber sizes, 14 x 18 inches,
16 x 18 inches, 17 x 32 inches. Many farmers
feed their own stpek silage and shredded corn
stover and sell their High-priced hay. A big
majority of them
Use I H C Hay Presses
The I H C pull power press has a greater
capacity than any other horse press of its size.
The stepover is the lowest and narrowest made.
An adjustable bale tension insures compact
bales. A roller tucker makes each bale neat
and smooth in appearance.
The I H C motor press consists of a bale
chamber and an I H C engine, mounted to
gether on substantial trucks. When not bal
ing hay you have a portable IHC engine,
which can be used to saw wood, pump water,
shell corn, grind feed, separate cream, or to
run any farm machine for which its power
makes it suitable. Two perfect machines in one.
Call on the IHC local dealer in your town,
or, write for an I H C hay press catalogue.

Seven Days In a Year.
At tho examination of pupils In nn
English primary bcIiooI tho Inspector
put questions nt random to tho schol
ars. Among tho latter was a tow
headed lad who, on being nsked how
mnny days thero arc In a year, an
swered, "Seven." When tho Uttering
of tho rest of tho class subsided tho In
spector remarked: "I said a year, not a
week. Now try It again. How many
days are there In a year?" Tho lad
appeared nonplused nnd vexed for a
moment, thon ejaculated: "Monday.
Tuosdny. Wednesday, Thursday. Fri
day. Saturday, Sunday Just seven. If
there's othors I never heard of 'cm.'"
Tho Clever Osteopath.
A certain osteopath was treating a
young lady who had very weak ankles
and wrists. As she lived in a town
quite n distance from his own city he
was forced to leave the city Saturday
of ouch week and go to the town in
which tho young lady lived, give her
the treatment on Sundny und return to
the ofilce on Monday. A friend oiice
asked the osteopath how he had ar
ranged to give the young lady the
treatments for her ankles nnd wrists
when h1u lived at such n distance, and
the osteopath replied. "Oh, I go out
and troat her week ends." LIpplncott's
