With Mayor Hrown of Lincoln a
candidate for governor, contesting
with Mayor Dahlmun of Omaha fat
the democratic nomination, and gov
ernor Shallcnberger contesting with
W. II. Thompson of Grand Island for
the nomination for the senate on the
game ticket, the democratic campaign
promises to be a warm one. In the
event of the success of either, the tem
perance people will have little to make
them feel like supporting the demo
cratic ticket, and yet, Hut why go
over the same old ground
We don't know why it is, but sev
eral of our editorial friends take ex
ceptions to our way of looking at con
ditions. The latest one is Editor
Taylor of the Central City Nonparicl.
lie is afraid that if we continue to be a
"stand patter" that we will lose our
clear conscience and develop a chronic
case of dyspepsia. Why, bless your
dear heart, Taylor, that is the way we
developed a clear conscience and got
rid of the dyspepsia. A "stand patter,"
as some fellows like to call the editor
of this paper, has no reason to have
anything else but a clear conscience.
Why should he? A "stand patter" is
a man who has faith in the republican
party and the man who is its standard
bearer. We have the same faith in
President Taft now that we did when
we stood on one leg and howled our
self hoarse a year ago when that man
as the candidate of the party that has
solved the greatest problems which a
party ever had to solve and solved
them right, passed through Nebraska
and stopped for a few hours in Lin
coln. We have the same faith in the
republican party now that our father
had, when after being sent home to die
from wounds in 1802, he recovered and
cast his vote for Abraham Lincoln
or the presidency. We have the
same faith in the republican party now
that we ilid when it met the problem of
the civil war and solved it right. We
have the same faith that we had in
the republican parjy when it met the
problem that confrontedthis country
in the Spanish-Phillipinc controversy
and solved that problem right. We
have the same faith in the republican
party that we have always had and no
free silver craze, no imperialism craze,
no free trade era A, and none of the
other "crnVies" which hae carried
republicans into the ranks of the as
sistant democrats have ever caused us
to waver in our allegiance to the party
which has time and again faced the
problems have had to be solved
and met them fairly and solved them
rightly. We had rather go down to de
feat a loyal "stand patter" if you please
fighting for the repunlican party and
its grand leaders than to be instrumen
tal in the slightcstjway of assisting to
place in power a partythat has time
and again shown its incompetency and
lack of business principles in handling
the affairs if the government. If be
ing true to honest convictions and
faith in the partyjthat has proven
time and again its ability to handle
the gravest questions, is hemg a
"stand patter," then a "stand patter"
we are, and proud of the fact. The
name of "stand patter" sounds mighty
good to us and the man who thinks he
is slandering us by calling us that name
is instead paying us the greatest
compliment possible. AH glory to the
"stand patter." May he live long
nor's chair would work such a change
but it probably has, for in his Thanks
giving proclamation Governor Shal
"At the close of the harvest sea
son when the labors of the farmers
are crowned with the bounteous
gifts of nature, and the material
growth and prosperity of our
great state has become the pride
and admiration of every citizen,
our hearts are filled with a spirit
of hope for the future and grati
tude for our present prosperity."
Now if the governor can only be
sent, to the United States senate the
whole country will probably be fa
vored in just the same, way as has the
state of Nebraska by his election as
Whether are we drifting? Warrants
for $22,000 had to be registered by state
Treasurer Brian Saturday because there
was no money in the treasury to pay
them. First it was a little debt of
$1,000 with no money to pay it. Then
the next time it was $11,000 and no
money, and now it is $22,000 and no
money. The democratic administra
tion is surely keeping up its record.
At this rate it will soon be neceassry
to pass another Sheldon act making a
special levy to pay off the state debt.
The republican party of Nebraska
is in an enviable position. Of all the
candidates which have been mentioned
for governor every man of then is a
first class man for the position and
no mistake can be made by the selec
tion of either. For congress, of the
three of four that are now mentioned
they are all good men and not a word
can be said ngainsr either of them.
For the senate of the United States
the same can be said. What more
could nny man ask in seleing a party
to which he could cast his future, po
litical aiiegiancef i oung man, you
are just getting rciuly to cast your
first vote. When you go to the ballot
box next fall you will be taking a step
which will mean much to you in the
future. You are taking a step which
may govern your whole future ex
istencc. When you start out in bus
iness life and desire to cast your lot
with some firm do you select the firm
which has made a failure in business
or do you try to secure a position with
the successful firm, the firm of stain
ing in the community. Naturally
it will be the latter. Then in getting
ready to cast your first vote next fall
spend some part oi your spare mo
ments between now nnd when the cam
paign shall open in looking up the
records of the two great parties and
see which of theni has been the most
successful in carrying on the business
of the state and of the government.

WHAT A DIFFERENCE.
How different a fellow feels some
times, and what a difference the season
of the year makes in a fellow's opin
ions. Just More election last year
Governor Shallenbergcr, who was a
candidate for the position he now
holds, traveled over the country and
tried to make the people believe that
the country was going to rack and ruin,
that the farmers were weighted down
with mortgages and debts and that
there was no hopes for anybody or
anything unless he was elected and
the democratic- party was given the
control of affairs.
The governor was elected and now
see how things have changed. No
one would ever believe that just the
mere putting of a man in the govcr-
as usual, me insurgents claim
that they are going to down Cannon
this time. Well if he can be downed
then down him. Hut down or not
down, do something for Nebraska
it it is loutui that there is power
enough ih congress to work the trick
successfully, then pull off the deal
and get down to business. But
there is not, don't waste the whole
session in making a fight on the leader
just for the sake of getting glory from
being called an "insurgent." There
are wieghtier matters to be consid
ered more than Cannonism or Al
drichism, and a congressman is not
paid to go to congress for the sake of
getting cheap glory, but for the pur
pose of getting results for his dis
trict and for his state. The editor of
this paper is not much on the Cannon
order, but as between accomplishing
something with Cannon and accom
plishing nothing against Cannon, we
prefer to take the tail with the hide
rather than lose both tail and hide.
NEW RAILWAY STATION
Alter Many Years New Passenger
Station Is Built.
COLUMBUS, Nov. 22. The new
Union Pacific passenger station at
this place has been completed and the
work of removal of the furniture and
other effects was completed Saturday.
It will be the finest station between
Ogdeu and Omaha and has been sadly !
needed for many years. The old build
ing will be torn down.
It is hilariously amusing to read the
criticism of the World-Herald against
the republican congressman of Ne
braska who have accomplished things.
It criticises the methods used, forget
ting that the owner of the same
World-Herald who has been in con
gress quite a while has never done any
thing to distinguish himself. It should
sweep off its own doorstep before it
makes any remarks about the little
dirt that it appears to sec on the door
step of a neighbor.
As far as Nebraska is concerned the
great football game of the season will
be pu.led off on Thanksgiving Day
when Johnnie Bender, the once great
star of the Nebraska team will line up
his Haskell Indians in a game at Lin
coln with the Nebraska university.
There will be great doings that day for
Bender would give more to beat
his old friends than to win a game
from Yale. At the same time Nebras
ka does not propose the let Johnnie
have his way.

The editor of the Minden Courier
in an argument with this paper in
which he put up five reasons for being
a democrat, says that he "foolishly an
swered a fool according to his folly."
At the time we thought they were the
five most foolish arguments we ever
heard and we are glad that the editor
of the Courier acknowledges the com.
The arguments of the average dem

A town is judged a great many times
by its business done. It is also judged
by the rustling abilities of its besiness
