The enpitn distribution of automobiles
in Nebraska is one for every forty-five
persons, and this state is only equalled
by South Dakota, whore the distribu
tion is the same. This distribution holds
good in North Platte, the number of
enrs exceeding one hundred. From
July 1, 15)11, to July 1, 1912, tho manu
facturers of this country produced
252,GQ9 cars of all classes. Tho average
price of each car was $1,089.30.
The republican party wreckers, more
familiarly known as tho bull moosers,
held a meeting in Kearney Saturday
and nominated P. L. Armstrong, of
Elm Creek, as candidato for congress
in opposition to Congressman Kinkaid
While this is not likely to result in
the defeat of Judge Kinkaid, it is evi
dence that tho only purpose of the so
called progressives is to divide the voto
and elect the democratic nominee, for
no sane man believes that Armstrong
stands a ghost of a show of election.
Maine and Colorado. .
Charles F. Scott, of the republican
headqunrters at Chicago,in a letter to the
press, snys in part: "As Maine goes, so
gocB tho Union."
If the old ndage holds good this year,
tho election in November will bo a
sweeping republican victory.
For there is no doubt that Maine has
gone republican. The ntato which gave
James G. Blaine, Thomas Ii. Reed,
Nelson Dingley and other great repub
lican lenders to the nation has returned
to the republican column. The victory
was both decisive and significant. Two
years ago Maine elected a democratic
govornor by a plurnlity of nearly 9,000.
This year, with the govcrnocsoeking
re-election, Maine elected a republican
governor by a plurnlity of between
3,000 and 4,000. This, too, despite of
tie fact that the third termers
obeyed instructions and voted for the
democratic ticket in order to defeat the
republican candidate, if possible, nnd
thus give Mr. Roosevelt an opportunity
to do some more shouting.
Second only to the significance of the
Maine returns is tho result of the Colo
rado primary, where the regular re
publicans show a long lead over the
followers of the "Hull Moose." It may
be rcmombcrod that when Colorado
sent a solid delegation for Taft to the
national convention last spring, Colonel
Roosevelt cried out with a loud voico
that tho state hnd been stolen from him
by machine methods nnd that a state
wide primary would havo shown un en
tirely different result. Tho state-wide
primary has now been held and tho re
sult is the snmc. It is perfectly ap
parent thnt the Centennial state is not
yet ready to throw the republican party
into the discard.

The refuspl of congress to agree to
tho workmen's compensation bill,
pushed by the administration, has
made President Taf t determined to ap
ply tho bill's principles in tho Panama
canal zone, where his authority docs
not nccu tno iurtncr sanction ot con
gress. Under tho Panama canal act
the president was given nuthority to
mnko tho laws for tho zone by execu
tive ordof. Within the next few weeks
he expects to proclaim us law for tho
cannl zone a workmen's compensation
act, greatly similar to that which at
last session passed tho scnnlo, but
which failed in tho house.
If tho farmers and atockmon are re

before nnd these are tho conditions at
tho present time what is tho' matter
with tho times? Surely thero is no
