Once more America walks ofT with
the honors in an international contest.
This time Glen Curtis the only Ameri

contests in France walked ofT.or rather
flew off, with the honors. Uncle Sam
has proven his powers on land and sea
many times before and now he takes to

now prepared to meet them coming or

fear for the results.
It has been suggested by the Lincoln
Star that all the Republican party in
Nebraska needs in order to win its bat
tles, is a leader. True, too true. It
might also suggest while in the suggest
ive mood that the Republican party
slao needs a few less high privates in
the rear ranks who take to the tall
timber when they should be behind the
Runs helping to win battles. No one
wants to be the leader of an army
filled with soldiers who are liable to
take a shot at him in the back when
things don't go to suit. Load your
guns for the enemy and then shoot to
kill. All this country is or has came
from the hand of the Republican party
and what it has done in the past it can
and will do again.
Washington is quick to forsee the
political significance of the Grosscup
decision limiting the powers of the in
terstate commerce commission. If the
supreme court agrees that the govern
ment's power to fix rates through a
commission is neither in the law nor in
the constitution, the public will have
but two avenues of escape from extor
tion. One will be a constitutional
amendment: the other government
ownership of railroads. An amendment
will be viewed as a practical impossibili
ty by most people. . That will mean an
immediate turn to the other recourse.
In that day the railroads will be amazed
to find how many people dread public
ownership and ordinarily have no sym
pathy with socialistic enterprises will
hold the evil of public ownership to be
a lesser one than the evil of unrestrain
ed private control. State Journal.
In Saturday's issue of the Daily
Journal appeared an editorial much
tainted with insanity, in which it is
charged that A. L. Tidd is still editing
the News-Herald. The News-IIer-Ald
said: "Two years ago thought
less republicans in this county elected
a democratic county clerk, treasurer,
and superintendent of schools." I de
sire to say to the "Kunnel" that I did
not write that editorial, but I will now
say to the republicans who two years
ago aided in electing those democratic
officials, that their support was cer
tainly misplaced. An examination of
the Klopp-Bartlett & Co's. bills as well
as other printing bills including the
Hattsmouth Journal's bills, will show
an extravagant waste of the taxpayers
money. That, "Kunne.l" is what I
would have said had I written the edi
torial you commented on. A. L. Tidd.
The time is past for sham battles
on the tariff question. The only
victory we have won on the tariff
in recent years was the victory of
1892, when we attacked the princi
ple of protection. No real fight
can be made until a distinct line is
drawn between the opposing forces.

Wilson-Gorman act, a kind
tween free trade and a tariff
enue only. The child, however, bore
enough of the characteristicsof its sire,
that when the American people got a
good look at it they repudiated it, and
the Dingley act of 1897 was the result.
Since that time the nation has enjoyed
an unprecedented prosperity. Although
the democratic party was overwhelm
ingly defeated and has not dared to say
a word about free trade, the leaders
were not satisfied with the verdict and
have bided their time with what pa
tience they could until a reintroduction
of the subject seemed more propitious.
And now, glory be, the fates have been
kind, even beyond their most sanguine
expectations. ' ,(,
As was to have been expected, when
the democratic free trade show met
with such a frost from the public, many
of their newspapers, unable to stand
the pressure of forever being on the
losing side, boldly announced their con
version to the principles of protection
and Republicanism. But a high tariff
has always been a source of annoyance
to them. . Guirdedly the "revisioV'talk
was commenced. The tariff was said
to be a "sectional" matter.though just
how one section of the country could be
benefited from the operation of an eco
nomic principle to the detriment of
another section was not made clear.
The "near" republican papers of the
country lined up with the democratic
press, and in a short time a horde' of
patriots who didn't know the difference
between a prolapsus and a protocol
were lustily shouting for a "revision of
the tariff." After about four and a half
months of as earnest labor as a Con
gress ever indulged in, the Payne-Al-drich
bill became a law. While it is
true that the free trade vultures
cannot find much balm in it, the almost
universal demand which they succeeded
in stirring up for a revision has em
boldened them now to demand more
concessions for their European theories,
as is evidenced by Mr. Bryan coming
out unequivocally for free trade.
The Republican party, however,
cheerfully accepts the gauge of battle
thrown down by Mr. Bryan and agrees
with him fully that "the time is past
for sham battles." It will be a pleas
ure to fight, bleed and yea, die if", nec
iesaaryin a shindy "Wherein Ihe Um WrmS
will permit of a ready distinction be
tween friend and foe. It is the jabs
under the belt from unexpected quar
ter? to which the News-Herald obi
jeets, and with the lines drawn between
the opposing forces, as suggested by
Mr. Bryan, a new political alignment
will result which can but be beneficial
to the Republican party. The differ
ence between free trade and a protec
tive tariff is as wide as the poles, and
remembering the experiences of this
country under the democratic times' of
1893-7, we do not believe that the
American people are ready for their repetition.
Fine job work done at this office.

That in the comforts and economies it bestows no other article ever made (at the
same cost) equals a Bissell "Cyco" Bearing Sweeper.
The Bissell has displaced the dust pan and the corn broom, two primitive instruments
of torture; has robbed sweeping day of its terrors, has made sweeping a pleasure instead
of a drudgery and has saved housewives and servants time for other agreeable tasks by
performing the work of sweeping in one-quarter the time the corn broom requires and
with 95 per cent less effort.
Sweeper confines all the dust, thus protecting the furniture, draperies, curtains, bric-a-brac,
etc. If there exists today a positive menace to the health of the entire family, it is
the clouds of dust raised by the corn broom, which permeate every nook and corner in the
home. The very latest improved "Cyco" Bearing Bissell sweeper can be bought at $3 00
and will last longer than fifty brooms. Why sacrifice health, comfort and convenience be
cause of so slight an investment.
We have just got in a line of Ladies Wool Skirts consisting of Voils, Serges Panamrs

gin of profit, as we intend to build up a skirt business in our store and believe that this is
the way to do it. Our skirts will be a big saving to you, ask to see them
