Are you a critic?
Webster defines it as "A spout pro
jecting from the roof gutter of a
building, often carved grotesquely.
Let every man, woman and child ask
himself this question, "What have. I
done for riattsmouth?" But don't Btop
there. What are you going to do? Do
Bomething. Opportunity still keeps her
door open. Speak a good word for our
city. You will feel better for a month
afterward. Try it.
There is no other city in Nebraska
that is provided by Nature with
much splendid natural scenery
riattsmouth. We could accommodate
thousands of people with splendid places
for beautiful homes. If we had an in
terurban railway hundreds of families'
from Omaha and South Omaha would
locate in this city.
If we could only shut the door of
waste, the well-being of our people
would surpass all previous experience.
Take an inventory of what you wasted
during th? past week, the past month
and the past year, add next year a simi
lar sum to your bank account. You
will soon find yourself and your business
on a paying basis.
Our egotistical contemporary, the
Journal, is much exorcised over the
publication of the Washington dispatch
that Congressman Pollard might have
the opportunity to recommend three
alternates for the Annapolis Naval
academy. It will be remembered that
the Journal was contemptuously in
suiting in its comments at the very
time that Congressman IVllard secured
the appropriation of $50,000 for a public
building to be erected in this city.
Congress Pollard is too clean a man to
even expect a word of compliment
Jrom a paper of the Journal's type of
AN HONEST TARIFF BILL.
For a time the feeling against the
Ways and Means committee.even within
the Republican party, was of such a
nature as to threaten to discredit the
committee's work in advance, and to
endanger the control of its own bill on
the floor of the House next spring. It
was known that Mr. Taft, as prospec
tive President, had taken a very strong
poiition in favor of what was called a
thorough and honest revision, and that j
he had privately threatened to veto any
tariff bill which should come short of
bis views as to what was required in
consistency with the promises of the
Republican national platform. It was
charged that Speaker Cannon was in
favor of this least possible tariff re
vision, and tnat Mr. layne, ot ew
i'ork, chairman of the Ways and Means
cemmittee, closely supported by Mr.
Dulzcll, who represents the Pittsburg
district, was hostile to any revision
except a nominal and perfunctory one.
Mr. Tuft, however, early in December, j
made a visit to Washington, and had a 1
conference not only with Speaker
Cannon, but with the Republican mem
bers of the Ways and Means committee. !
As a result of these conferences it was
announced that the lriends of Mr.
Taft anJ of tariff revision would not
oppose Mr. Cannon's re-election as
Speaker of the next Congress. And it
was further said that Mr. Payne and
Mr. Dalzell satisfied Mr. Tuft that th
committee was preparing t '! thor
ough work along the line of Republican
Jiromisss. The R?publican point of
viw is tint tariff rates should prottct
the American standard of wage pay
ment and should not ignore the view
that it is desirable
PANAMA CANAL LIBEL SUIT.
The yellow journalism indulged in by
the New York World and the Indian
apolis News during the recent presi
dential campaign may develop some
new and valuable things. It is certain
ly causing a number of persons to lie
awake at night just at present. In the
senate the other day Senator Raynerof
Maryland, introduced the following
Whereas it is currently reported
that the Attorney-General of the
United States, at the instance and
under the direction of the President,
has ordered the district attorneys
in several of the federal districts to
institute an investigation in con
nection with various publications
lately appearing in the press in re
lation to the purchase of the Pan
ama Canal; and
Whereas in the progress of said
investigation a number of witnesses
connected with the papers in which
said publications were made have
been summoned to appear and tes
tify before the grand juries of said
several districts; and
Whereas the federal districts out
side of the Territories and the Dis
trict of Columbia are not invested
with common-law jurisdiction, and
ave only such jurisdiction as arise
under the Constitution of the United
States and under the laws made in
pursuance thereof, and the supreme
court of the District of Columbia
has only such jurisdiction as is now
contained in the codification of the
laws made under authority of Con
gress, and such further jurisdiction
under the acts of Congress, as is
particularly conferred upon it by
said code; and
Whereas it is provided in the first
amendment to the Constution of
the United States, among other
things, that Congress shall make
no law abridging the freedom of
the press: Be it
Resolved, That the Attorney
General of the United States be,
and he is hereby, directed to inform
the Senate whether the investiga
tion aforesaid has been ordered by
the President; and if it has been
ordered, under what statute of the
United States, if any, the proceed
ings have been instituted, and by
what right and authority the process
of said courts is being employed in
The Senator from Maryland seemed
very much exorcised over the proceed
ings which were being had in the matter
of this prosecution. If the charges
made by these two newspapers were
true then it would be for them to
prove the truth of their statements in
the courts. If they were false then as j
President Roosevelt suggested in his i
special message to congress the charges
made by these yellow journals would j
stand as an attempt to blacken the j
name of the Americm people, and they
should be punished ftr it. And it
should not be left for any individual to
bear the burden of prosecuting such a
case. Criticism or the government,
and of those entrusted with the admin
things have increased enormously under'! HgHgH
its acauw oijip
No subsequent Administration can be
careless of them; no well-rounded his
tory of our country can omit his
service; and, as these policies are car
ried on and their benefits become
more apparent, men will see in proper
perspective the new direction that he
has given to the thought of the people,
the new and right uses to which he has !
put the power of government, and the '
better practical adjustment that he has !
furthered of the American people to !
their rich and beautiful home. Mr. j
Roosevelt's eervice in this great field !
is without precedent in our history and
is the basis of a well-won popular grat-'
itude and of a lasting fame. I
And we are fortunate that his succes
sor is in sympathy with all these bene
ficent policies. -World's Work.
It is said that Omaha is going to
have a boom this year. And so is Platts
mouth. If this city doesn't show a
marked growth in enterprise it will be
because you and I have not done out'
part. Let the merchants arrange to
have special sales and offer purchasers
inducements to come and buy, and they
will come. Let each merchant take
some particular line or lines and make
it or them leaders, and he'll soon be
busy. Everybody is looking for bar
gains. They are looking for you to
show them a leader that is a real bar
gain. Don't say you are offering a
bargain when you are not, and the
people know you are not. .

THE JOURNAL'S WIRES CROSSED
The Journal yesterday reprinted
from the World-Herald, one of the
strongest editorials, it has had the
good fortune to read for some time.
The title of the editorial in ques
tion is "Sedition: 1798-1909" and
it deserves to be read and read by
all students of our national govern
ment. Such editorials as this will
place the World-Herald in the fore
front of American papers and an
indication of a powerful editorial,
staff. It can be well compared with
the editorials of the Louisville Cour
ier-Journal, the New York Sun and
other papers whose chief call to
fame is their editorial columns.
Here is the heading of the article
referred to in the above editorial of
our "decent" contemporary:
sedition: 1798-190'J. -x
The New York World discussing '
its own prosecution by the United
States for having published an al
leged libel of the government,
speaks thus plainly:
The article following the heading as
given above, was the wail of the New
York World editor, and the World
Herald had nothing whatever to- do
with writing the article. We cannot
say which of the two papers would
