If the democrats believe in a non
partisan court they should carry out
the idea by voting for Judge Beeson as
he has had the office but one term and
is entitled to another.
It is said that W. H. Thompson will
be a candidate for something next year.

sounds familiar when connected with
running for office. Must be there was

'TWAS EVEH THUS,
The Lincoln State Journal seems to
think that the only papers which are
supporting President Taft at the pres
ent time are Ross Hammond's Fre
mont Tribune and M. A. Brown's
Kearney Hub, and contends that the
reason they are doing so is because
they are holding down political jobs.
The editor of the State Journal has
known M. A. Brown and Rots Ham
mond for years. He has been intimately
acquainted with them during he most
of that time. He knows that they
have been in the newspaper business
ever since Nebraska was in its infancy,
and he knows that they afe men who

do so much, is doing so little.
The loss of the pennant by the Sioux
City club can be laid at the door of no
one but Mr. Holmes himself. Having
antagonized the management of every
other team in the league and therefore
the players also, when the time came
for the final spurt under the wire the
players of that team knew that they
were up against public sentiment and
it was not strange that they should go
to pieces when the test came. They
knew that not only were the different
teams of the league against them, but
that the public all over the Western
League territory were against them,
not as individual players, but because
of the management.
The final test came in the series this
week between Omaha and the Sioux
City team. Just at this time when the
presence cf Holmes was needed to
strengthen the team and when his
heavy hitting and ability to "ginger"
up the players was needed, he was
under suspension and not ullowed with-
in the grounds. On the last day with
a double header beforo them, in which
in order to win the pennant it was
only necessary to win one of the games,
the Sioux tribe was without their
leader and when the crucial test came
they lost their nerve just for an in
stant, but that instant was fatal and a
pennant was lost for Sioux City and
won for Des Moines.
Mr. Holmes should now sit down and
look back over the past. He has it in
him to retrieve the ground he has lost.
Everybody in the country who attends
the games recognizes the fact that
Duckey Holmes has no superior as a
manager anywhere in minor league
territory. He should recognize the fact
that he is at the end of his rope, so to
speak, and get back to that point
where his connection with the game
will be an inspiration to it and not a
detriment. Holmes might be a leader,
and a popular one to, if he only would.
The question is, whether he will profit
by his late experience and as the old
class leader used to say, "Come out
from the world and be seperate."

After the election is over the "non
partisan" idea as regards the supreme
court will be seen as a hugh joke.
Democrats advocate it, but only bo far
as getting republicans to vote for
democratic candidates. There the
"non-partisan" idea ends. No demo

only just as far as it works the repub

is of no moment.
