United State Senate from Nebraska, in
1911, to succeed Senator E.J. Dur
kett. Mr. Uryan said, "Nebraska has
adopted the Oregon plan of popular
election. I do not know yet whether I
will be a candidate; a senatorship I
aspired to when a boy. If there seems
to be a good chance to elect to the
senate from Nebraska, some other
democrats will please me better than
On Tr in Advance ti.so ' De a candidate myself. I have said
repeatedly that I hope I may never
again be a candidate for office. I would
not say that I would never, under any
circumstances, accept the nomination,
because no one is wise enough to look
into the future and decide on conditions
in advance." This is no more that we
had expected Mr. Bryan to say. There
is but little doubt that he will be the
democratic candidate for U. S. Senate
in 1911, and but little doubt that he
will be the democratic candidate for
president in 1912. He has already said
through the Commoner that the demo
cratic party should have a leader, and
left it open for the inference that he
was the self-appointed and constituted
lender. He does not seem to recognize
that there are many other democrats
with brains enough to make them suit
able as candidates.
"Every owner, editor, or re
porter of a conscienciously and
ably conducted newspaper or
periodical is an asset of real value
to the whole community. It
would be difficult to overestimate
the amount of good which can be
done by the men responsible for
such a publication-responsible
for its editorial columns, respon
sible for its news columns, re
sponsible for its general policy.
We have many newspapers and
i periodicals big and little, of this
? kind. But we also have many
t that are not of this kind."
Speak a good word for the living.the
dead don't need it.
Duty well done is noble; if properly
advertised it is fame.
Some people never get too old to
learn, and some others never get old
enough to learn anything.
The editor of thi paper has an
iiouneed 4iis policy for equal opportun
ity for all, and he will stand on such
policy fearlessly and will unhesitatingly
challenge the readers of the News
Herale to this policy at all times.

the brewers, the railroad corporations
and other trust combines in practically
every move they have made in the
present administration. So strong has
been this subserviency that the Exeter
Enterprise, a Nebraska paper which
supported Mr. Shallenberger, in its
last issue run the picture of Mr. Shal
lenberger which it run last fall, but
changed in this, that across the picture
are these words: "The Brewers, Com
bines and Short Weights." This is cer
tainly a strong denunciation, coming
from a paper which only 5 months ago
was supporting Mr. Shallenberger, but
the denunciation is no stronger then
his administration deserves.

is a business proposition, pure and

Soon there will be a great assembly
of parents and alumni at all the col
leges throughout the United States.
And the older, and in experience at
least, wiser generations will have the
chance to study at first hand the prac
tical workings of these institutions for
the training of young men and young
women in democratic ideals. For, ob
viously, if an American college does
not train its youth in American ideals,
it has no value whatsoever either for
its youth or for the country. As they
poke and peer about, these older and
wiser generations might have it in
mind to learn whether the principal
part of the education, the real educa
tion, is in a life of "refined and ele
gant" leisure, diversified with the
sports of a gentleman, or is it in a life
of steady, self-reliant, toiling
can manhood and womanhood. These
little matters do not appear in college
catalogues; but they do appear in the
life of the college itself. And they
should determine whether the boy that
is coining on shall go where the father
or older brother went, or shall go to a
college that has not been rotted and
