The World-Herald Btands "amazed"
at the president's partisanship. Good
Lord! If there has ever been anything
so vile, or anything so unreasonable, or
anything so disreputable that has ever
been fathered by the democratic party
that the World-Herald has always
stood np for we have never heard of it.
It was only necessary to have the demo
cratic brand to find the World-Herald
it; champion first, last and all the time.
The only fault that the opponents of
Sheriff Quinton can find with his ad
ministration of the sheriff's office is
that he has had it long enough. Four
years docs seem like an awful long
while to the fellow that is out and
wants to get in. But cheer up breth
ren, its liable to be a mighty long
while yet before you can wear the
badge, and it doesen't pay to keep

coming and when it passed over the
plate swatted it over the fence.
No voter, when he goes to the polls,
should fail to remember Prof. E. E.
Odell, republican candidate for county
superintendent. He has made the
educational business a study and al
ways successfully. He is built upon
the board principle that every man
who comes to him or every worrian who
has occasion to consult him along the
lines of education, will be given equal
consideration, no matter what his or
her politics. He is not asking for the
office for any other reason than that he
is qualified for the posision and if e
lected will give the office his very best
effort. He is a graduate of the Peru
Normal and has had experience at the
head of some of our best schools. His
experience and general good sound
judgement makes him an ideal candi
date and he Bhould be elected.
close the season in about the fourth
and fifth places. Sioux City, the
champions of last year, though start
ing badly, soon struck their gait and it
soon became evident that they would
lead the bunch when they passed under
the wire at the close of the season. At
one t'me Denver wa3 a contender for
the pennant, but lack of a good mana
ger soon put them to the bad, and the
race narrowed down to Sioux City, Des
Moines and Omaha, which will prob
ably close the season in that order.
The sensation of the year however has
been the Lincoln team. Starting in at
the bottom they persistently held on to
that position until August 17th, when
starting out after an almost nnbroken
string of defeats, and under the man
agement of Jimmie Sullivan, they be
gan to climb and for the balance of the
season won nearly seventy-five per
cent of their games, at one time equal

B. I. Clements of Elmwood is a can
didate for re-election to the office of
coronor. Mr. Clements has made a
good coronor, and while his duties have
not been arduous, still there is no
knowing what might happen, and it is
a good thing to be prepared for the
worst. An inexperienced man might
cost the county several dollars which it
was not jiecessary to expend. There

The Commoner does not like the
speeches of President Taft being made
on his trip over the country. Strange.
But did you ever stop to think how
easy it is for one without any respon
sibility on his shoulders to stand off
and find fault with the one who has?
Mr. Bryan and his Crmmoner have
hever been anything else but fault
finders and probubly never will be in
any position where there will be any
responsibility on their shoulders so
others can find fiault.
We lave often wondered why some
body didn't start a republican paper in
Lincoln. Lancaster county up to a
year ago was quite strongly republican,
and ought to be a gcod field for a live
paper of the republican brand.
The Lincoln Daily News says that
the boys who are upholding President
Taft are the fellows who have good
fat appointments. Then we suppose
it is retsonablo to believe that)the fel
lows who are knocking bo hard are the
ones who didn't get them.
Somehow the average democratic
newspaper editor cannot understand
how a republican can speak his con
victions without first taking his sound
ings to find out how the public feels on
the subject. They have had so much
"politics for pclicy only" from their
three-time presidential candidate, that
they cannot comprehend how President
Taft can taks a stand for what he be
lieves is right when it is liable to bring
criticism from those who do not under
stand and who also think they know it
Some people think that any old deal
is all right in politics, but honesty in
politics should be the watchword as
well as in any other walk in life. The
fake stories in circulation regarding
the nationality of George Lushinsky
and attempts to make him appear a
saloon bum are decidedly unfair and
will assist him rather than harm him
as soon as the facts are made known.
George Lushinsky was born in Ger
many in 1870 and came to America
when small. He has been in the em
ployment of the Burlington for many
years and has shown himself to be a
man of character and good standing.
He talks and writes German like a
native, is well qualified to fill the posi
tion and should poll every vote cast by
the man who has to work for a living
and earns his wages by the sweat of
his brow and the work of his brawny

in farming because he used ' busineis
principles in conducting his farm. His
unfortunate neighbors who have suf
fered from the misfortunes of crop
failures know that they never had to
go to Martin Friedrich for assistance
and be turned away empty handed. He
did not keep his good fortune to him
self, but let others share it iu their
hour of need. Those who know' Martin
Friedrich best are for him for county
commissioner the hardest, and his elec
tion is not only assured, but by a
larger majority than ever before. Peo
ple don't turn down public officers of
the stamp of Mr. Friedrich, but keep
them for they know their interests are
well taken care of.
The street car Btrike in 'Omaha
reached an acute stage during the past
week and much rioting occured at one
time. The stnet railroad management
declare that the striken are wrong and
the strikers say the same thing about
the management. We have read very
carefully the statements made by both
sides in the controversy, and we think
that both ought to make some conces
sions. A laboring man who has to
leave home at five o'clock in the morn
ing and not get back till seven, in the
evening and then gets pay for only
nine hours certainly has a grievance
and the car company should listen to
his complaint and give him some chance
to earn his wages without being com
pelled to put in fourteen hours and
draw only nine hours pay. On the other
hand there may be some concessions
that the strikers should make to the
company, and both sides should remem
ber that the rights of the public demand
a speedv settlement of the controversy
and get together in some manner.
in succession. Most of the teams have
made good money, and many of them
have disposed of several players to the
big leagues, thus adding to their pro
fits. The season in the big leagues
has been also of the sensational order,

nearly over. Without much doubt
