the bond of a democrat had not been
filed at the same time, and therefore
the thing was a standoff and neither
Mr. Manspeaker nor Mr. Schlatcr were
responsible for it. We hold Mr. Schla
ter very highly and would not for a
moment publish anything derogatory.to
him personaly if the facts did not war
rant it, and so far a9 we know there is
no reason for any statement along that
line. People who read the heading to

There is more at stake, possibly than
the average citizen considers, and
would be well from now on to study
conditions, study prospective candidates
and look well not only into the past
but into the future. It is noc to be ex

legislate or assist in legislating in such
a way that every man will be satisfied
It is a question of the geatest good to

The political and business history of
the past twenty to forty years is with

voter, as an intelligent citizen who ap
preciates what it is to be an American

AS IT LOOKS.
The result of the election in Cass
county is not such that the republican
who had hoped to see Old Cass brought
oack where by rights she ought to be
feel hopeful for the future.
is true that in some respects bush
whacking politics has been rebuke!
and for that all good men irrespective
of politics should feel glad. But the
fact stands out boldly the notwithstand
ing Cass pounty is republican by a good
majority, republicans insist in splitting
ineir ticxet, while democrats just as
strongly insist in putting it in straight.
a we nave no sensure to make upon
s. republicans who believe that their in
terests and the interests of the party
( whose principles they believesin can
bast be subserved by such action. It is
their business and not ours. But there
is lots of chance between now and an
other election to think thfse things
over and learn a lesson from the result
in Cass county.

Two parties of engineers employed
by theNorthern Pucific Railway Co.,
and three crews connected with the
Chicago, Milwaukee & Puget Sound
Railway company are racing for the
first location of a line into the timber
belt on the north fork of the Clearwater
river in northern Idaho. The Hill peo
ple have located a line on both sides of
the river from Ahsahka to Dent, 15
miles, and is extending it up the
stream on the north bank. The
Milwaukee engineers have located on
north bank between the points named
and are now working on the south
fork. Eastern ond western lumber
companies with extensive holdings
along the river are obliged to remove
the timber within a specified time and
the railroads are necessary to handle
le products. ,v

Nebraska Beet Sugar.
John Petrie, of the live Ntoek de
partment of the Burlington, who has
just returned from a long trip to the
west and northwest, says that there is
nothing in all the west like the beet
sugar business in northeasrern Colo
rado and the North Platte valley in
western Nebraska. - The beet crop has
been heavy, and the harvest is now on.
The crop in the North Platte valley was
unusually heavy, and the prospects
are for an increased acreage next year.
Mr. Petrie says:
"There are now three sugar fac
tories taking the product of that part
of the beet erowimr territory. Thev
are located in Brush, Sterling and Fort
Morgan. At Fort Moriran and Brush
the factories are slicing about !KK) tons
of beets each per day, while the fac
tory at Sterling getting iects'fwin
both the Union Pacific and the Bur
lington, has a greater supply. The
beets are the finest in quality and the
raisers are getting a good price for
them. Sugar beet trains are now be
ing pulled out of the North Platte val
ley to those factories, and the rather
long Haul is making considerable bus
iness for the railroad. Next season
the new factory nt ScottsBluff will
be in operation and the haul will be
reduced, but it is probable that the
tonnitge will more than make up to
the railroad the loss in mileage. There
is no question about the future of the
North Platte valley. You get the
combination of an irrigated country
raising sugar beets and a sugar fac
tory in that territory and the way
quick money comes in makes some
other lines of industry look sick. At
Sterling, Fort Morgan and Brush
about ten thousand head of cattle will
be fed and enough sheep to bring the
live stock total far above $l(K),0(K).
