Looking In Yuln.
On authority of the Lincoln Jcurnnl
the democrnts ure very busy trying to
find u Hiiltnblo candidate for governor.
In this trying process the eastern part
of the stale alone constitutes the Held
of canvass; those having the matter
in hand forgetting Hint n big part of
the stato lies west-of Grand iBlnnd,
and thnt In this westorn territory It
Is possible the suitable candidate re
sides. Tito pcoplo of western Nebraska
would llko to sco a western Nebraska
mail occupy the governor's
he republican or democrat.
If, us re
ported, tho democrats of the east part
of the state are in grout travail over
tho selection of a man to phica before
tho people, why not send a satiut Into
this section? Keith Neville, J. 11. Mc
Donald or Dr. McCabc could mention
a dozen western Nebraska djmocrath
any of whom would mako not only a
strong candidate but a good governor;
or porchanco ono of the three might
bo found to bo In a receptive mood.
Tho suggestion Is made gratuitously.
Preparedness Xot Popular.
In his trip through' tho middle wool
In tho Interests of his prcparedne3J
campaign Prosldent "Wilson hae boon
accorded a warm reception which
might bo oxpected and which Is nat
urally proper. It is questionable, how
ever, If tho prcsIdontB' recaption can
bo taken as an endorsement of his
preparedness program; In fact It Is
probablo that his trip will not gain
friends for that measure. TIio man
who 1b n "mlxor," the ono win tnlks
ono day with a bank president, the
next day with a grocer, and Mir next
with a day laborer, is pretty well con
vinced that about t'our-Mftlis of those
with whom ho talks arc opposed to
putting this nation on a war basis
spending hundreds of millions for sub
or dreadnaughts, for fortifications, for
an Increased standing army.
Tho nverago citizen docs not see on
tho horizon of tho future any possi
bility of a foreign nation clashing
with the United States; ho bollevon
that tho tuitions now engaged will
have, when tho presont struggle' Is con
cluded, nil tho war they will desire
for tho next century, and that If wo
have differences with others not now
at war, those differences can bo nettled
without resorting to arms. Men eighty
years of ago have gone through liio
and preserved tholr dignity and rc-
Bpect without resorting to fisticuffs;
other "bad men" with chips on their
shoulders are continually Involved In
encountorn. A big navy and a big ar
my haaji tondoncy to mako it country
vnln-glorious; strutting around with a
chip on tho shoulder and daring any
nation to knock it oft'.

Reckless 31 r. Itoosowll.
If wo analyze Mr. Roosevelt's Brook
lyu speech nrlght, it consists of two
Tho first of these Is that tho United
Statos Is unprepared fur war. Wo have
nothing hut a twenty-two calibre
pistol to fight with; a muzzlo londer
at that. This is worso than nothing,
Tho second of Mr. Rosovolt's propo
sitions Is that It was "dishonorable
conduct" on tho part of tho United
Stntofi to Inko no action in tin mattor
of tho violation of Holglum. Uv this
ho means thnt wo should have Inter
voned by force. He could moan notli
lng olso, slnco in the samo speech ho
denounces Prosldent Wilson for writ
lng uotos to Gorinnny Instead of talc
ing "offorttvo action" in tho matter o'
tho submarine "murders." So evident
ly ho would linvs fought Gormanj
also; and on account of the Persia
Austra-Hungory; and on account of
the ArmenlaiiB, Turkey.
That is to say, Mr. Roosevolt would
havo had us attack aerinany, Austria
and Turkey with a muzzlo loading
twonty-two .calibre plstl which Is
worso than nothing. Slnco :ho do
nouncoB-the government for no. doliiK
this, it Is evidently what ho would
have dono If ho woro prosldo'it acnl
Tills moans that If Mr. Roosevelt
had bopn proaldont ho woull have
led us to a glorious trounolns; twenty
two calibre against forty-two conditio
tros. Thnt would havo beon brave, bul
dlscrotlon Is also a virtue We fear
Mr. Roosovelt Is succeeding In con vine
Ing his countrymon, as they feel thol
heads still safe on their 'diouldors,
that thoy aro glad Mr, Roosovelt has
not been president of Ints. Stat'J
Is the Tlmo PropitKloim?
The Omaha Uoo declaros Mint No
brnska needs n now stato houso and
adds that the tlmo Is propIMotH for
the presentation of a definite project
to secure tho same. Thero will prob
ably not bo a dental of tho main as
sertion, for not only is a now stato
houso needed for the accommodation
of tho state's offices, but also a better
and snfer housing of the stat library
and tho valuable property of tho Htuto
Historical society. All of thc3 mat
ters could however have beon settled
loiig ere 'this If Nebraska legislatures
had not refused to permit the question
of capital location to come before tho
pcoplo and bo settled by a fair test
of the vatlng sontlnient of the slate. It
Is possible, and it Is not Improbable,
that there would not have been ary
change of capitol location, although it
Is a fact that throo-fourths of tli. state
is no longer best accommodated by tho
presont location, which was named
when thero was no populatloi woltli
while outside of a small circle drawn
in the southeast part of tho state.
It Is1 doubtful now whether a change
of tho capital could or would be effect
ed, with a popular vote, but thero aro
several portions of tho stato and many
of its people who aro still, sore on all
new state house projects for various
reasons, not the least of which Is the
falluro to permit tho location nucsMou
to bo voted upon and settled n. a first
step toward a satisfactory new capitol
building. That feeling is naturally be
coming less nn (I It may as .h; Bee
says, that tho tlmo is now "propitious"
for the presentation of such a project.
Ilowovor, that may be, tho fact will
still remain thnt tho best Interests ol
the stato will never bo served by mak-
ng Lincoln tlio permanent sent of gov-
ornmont. This Is made without the
least projudlco toward the present stale
capital and without bias or Interest In
any possible scheme for capital re
location. A centor of Influence oolltical
and otherwise, within the old jouthcast
Nobrnska clrclo, not only remains nut
will probably always remain, to the
exclusion and disadvantage of the
greater portion of the stntc. Lincoln,
Heatrlco, Nebraska City, Omaha, Frt-
mont, and possibly Columbus, are
within that original clrclo of 'n(lucnc
which ndt only preponderates political
ly and commercially, but which arro
gates to those within the "chnrined
clrclo" tho divine right to treat the
outlying sections as mcro provincial
Neither the pcoplo of Lincoln today
nor the pcoplo of southeast Nebraska
are to hlamo for tho "Job" that re
moved tho capital from Omaha ti Lin
coln before the tlmo. was ripe for a
change, nnd beforo any man knew
where the futuro center of population
would be. The question now 13 wheth
or the people who camo afte and
cliangcd the center of population, and
who woro tho ones wronged, are dis
posed to wipe tho old state clean go
In for a new stato houso, and mak 1
th emost or tho geographical handicap
that tho present location places upon
them. Kearney Hub.
