Governor Shallenbarger has an
nounced his candidacy for renomination
for a Becond term. The governor will
find that there are other patriots who
will want to run the race, notwith
standing the hopelesness of the chances
of winning. The governor will also find
that the fellows who were instrumental
in his winning lust fall are not feeling
very enthusiastic over the way he for
got to remember them after he got a
chance to reciprocate for the favors
done him. With the honorable gentle
man from Omaha out with his little las
soo, with George W. Berge of Lincoln
out with his knife, the chances are that
the gentleman from Alma will find the
sledding very hard and in some cases
the ground very bare. There has not
been very much in the administration
of the governor that has a tendency to
make the faithful enthuse, and what
the outcome may be is a problem.
Say, honestly; after reading the Lin
coln Evening News, wouldn't you guess
the first time that it was a democratic
The enterprising citizens of the town
of Louisville, up the creek, are agitat
ing the building of an opera house, with
good prospects that they will succeed.
A town without a place of this kind is
greatly at a disadvantage, and the pos
session of an opera house sufficient to
hold a crowd such as a town of that size
would naturally want, will help a great
deal in its development.
After a six months' absence in search
of health and recreation, Editor May
field of the Louisville Courier is again
at the helm and expects to make the
Courier go some. We have not the
pleasure of Mr. Mayficld's acquaintance,
but an editor that can afford to take a
six months' vacation must be a curios
ity and a jim dandy. Here's hoping
that we meet him.
It is keeping the World-Herald busy
these days fixing up a ticket for the re
publican party next year. It has
brought out several combinations which
are all good ones, but it now comes out
with Ptill another which looks some
thing like this: D. E. Thompson for
the senate, Sheldon for governor, Hay
ward for congress and Rosewater for
the senate two years hence. It is prob
able that the World-Herald may have
to guess again. In any event it could
put in its time more usefully trying to
pick out a combination that at least
would make an interesting fight for its
party next year. The democratic party
will have plenty of trouble of its own
picking out a ticket. It will not be be
cause of lack of good material to pick
from as in the case of the republicans,
but because of the scarcity of compe
tent patriots who will be willing to be
put up to be killed off.
The Fairbury Gazette announces that
it will discontinue its scmi-weckly edi
tion and return to the once a week is
sue. The Fenii-weckly has been run
ning many years but unfortunately tie
postcfTice regulations do not al
low the distribution of a semi-weekly

burv. The Gazette also celebrates its
fortieth year with tho issue ot this

Gazette is a good paper and we wish it
forty years more of success.
go by they continue to elect republican . iafactjoa 0f ,.arrying his own state rec
presidents and republican congresses
and the pic counter to the democratic
patriot looks farther and farther
ii the distance. Is it any won
der that things look gloomy.
If it was not for the fact that they
enjoy the privileges that the rest of
the people enjoy who appreciate
the good things the country has
e ijoyed under the republican ad
ministrations of past years, they would
certainly frizzle up and blow away.
The Minden Courier had a mighty bnd
case last week and things look awful
gloomy to Brct'ier Richmond. He
doesn't see anything but disaster to
the country in the agitation of the tar
iff commission plan. He thinks that
the railroads, the trusts, the rich men
and the bad men will control the com
mission and everything will go to the
everlasting bow-wows. Just indiges
tion. That's all. Come out of it old
man or you will die before your time.
You and every other democratic editor
who has a lick of sense and will not
let his prejudice get the better of
his judgement, knows that the commis
sion plan has proven a success in every
place it has been tried. You know
that the commission plan in Nebraska
has been a success. You know that it
has brought the matters that have
been unsuccessfully handled by the
legislatures in years gone by to a point
where the facts can be gotten at in
telligently and solved without any po
litical tie-ups to hamper the solving of
the questions at issue. You know that
the railway commission of Nebraska
has solved the question of how to
handle corporations successfully and
you also know that the law was passed
by a republican legislature and signed
by a republican governor which created
this commission and if you were not
continually finding fault with present
conditions and all the time looking for
the nigger that you think must cer
tainly dwell in every republican wood
pile you would be able to see a few

The Kearney Hub, in commenting on
an editorial published in the News
Herald the other day, in which we said
that no one wanted to be the leader of
an army filled with soldiers who might
take a shot at him in the back, says
that there is "more point in the state
tnent than the News-Herald intended."
We desire to say to the Hub that such
is not the fact. We meant every word
we said, and cannot even then make it
strong enough. Jealousy, treachery,
and the feeling on the part of some that
it would be a nice thing to help out a
friend who is running for office on the
democratic ticket has led to the defeat
of several of the best officials that Ne
braska ever had. This persistency on
the part of republicans to follow the
democratic hearse to the democratic
graveyard, just to show the mourners
that you are a good fellow, will rot
build up the republican party in your
precinct, county, district, state or ration.
A great deal of discussion has been
had since the adjournment of congress
over the tariff bill as passed by that
session. If nothing else has been ac
complished, the fact has been demon
strated that there must be some other
way to solve the tariff problem besides
the present one. When one looks into
thi matter carefully, he finds that those
things which we of an agricultural com
munuy wouui nxe to nave come our
way are opposed by a great majority
of the members from other localities
In fact should it come to a show down
and the proposition made a straight is
sue, the number of congressmen who
would naturally favor the things that
we want are far, far in the minority.
There must be some ether way to solve
the question. Nebraska fought out the
railroud transportation question for
years in its legislatures, but the ques
tion was never solved until the present
railway commission was created. So
with the tariff question. There are too
many localities, too many interests to
be considered to leave it to congress.
A commission is the only way to . solve
the question, and while it may not come
soon, it is the only and ultimate solu
tion of the great matter.
democratic congressman in this district
last fall recompense the district for the
loss of a republican congressman who
was doing good work for his district
with a prestige established that would
have given him an opportunity to do
greater work in the future? Did the
election of a democratic governor and
a democratic legislatnre recompense the
state of Nebraska for the laws that
they passed and which, luckily for the
Btate, were most of them so bungled
up that they arc useless? Has the fill
ing up of the public institutions of the
state with democrats, many of them
in:ompetent, recompensed the state for
turning dew i those who after years of
excellent service had proven themselves
competent and their services of great
value? Did the election of democrats
to county offices in Cass county two
years ago, giving that party a footing
which enabled them to send a demo
cratic representative and a democratic
senator to the legislature last winter,
recompense the republicans who voted
for them for county office?
The men placed upon the republican
ticket in Cass county this fall are above
reproach. They are men of standing
in the community in which they reside.

How natural it is for a democratic
nwspaper man to look on the dark
side of every proposition. Nothing
looks good. Everything look's bad.

average democratic editor gets a bad
case of indigestion and everything looks
gloomy. Of course he really should
DOES IT PAY?
A condition, not a theory, confronts
the republicans of Cass county at this
time. Two years ago, with a normal
republican majority of something like
four hundred, the people of this county
elected several democrats to office, and
they are now in the court house using
their influence toward placing other
democrats in similar positions and in
holding on to the jobs they now have.
We do not blame them for this. It is
their privilege to do so if they so de
sire. It is a laudable ambition for any
man to aspire to serve the , people and
also to get his friends to do likewise.
However, of that it is not our inten
tion to speak. The fact stands out and
cannot be denied that these democratic
officials are there by virtue of republi
can votes. We do not know what par
ticular republicans assisted in the mat
ter, neither do we care, but we do say
that it is not a condition that has since,
nor will it coutinue in the future, to
build up the republican party in Cass
county. It has been the history of this
country that the democratic party has
never been able to deliver the goods
tat they contracted to deliver. A busi
ness man who would promise to deliver
one brand of goods and then send his
customer an inferior brand, or send no
goods at all, would not be able to con
tinue business very long. The demo
cratic party of Nebraska has been! in
that particular condition from its verv
first inception. Luckily for the state
they have never been in power very
bng, but in each case it was plenty
long enough. They have been before
the people every year with a long
bunch of promises which they never ex
pected to carry out because they never
expected to have the chance. Unfor-
tunately for them, in a few instances,
they have been successful and were
given the chance to carry out the prom
ises that they never expected to have
the opportunity to do. The result in
e .ch case has been tho same. Flushed
with an unexpected victory, they spent
t le time in looking after their own pel
sonal welfare, and the state at large
bad to suffer.
