Congress hns been in setwion a couple
of days and Joe Cannon and Senator
Aldrich arc Htill alive.
The prediction of the News is that
toward the close of President Tuft's
administration there will be a general
demand that he accept a second
term, and the present "insurgents"
wilt be shouting the loudest for him
to do so.
One thing was Hhown in the presi
dont's message, and that was that
theTaft administration, if has his
way, will be one of retrenchment on
government expenditures. And we
rather think that he will have some
thing to say about it.
. A man in Lincoln got so hard up for
a drink last Tuesday that he resorted
to a bottle of wood alcohol. And yet
name people say whiskey can be bought
anywhere in that city. The man is
dead. Evidently the town is not as
wet as some people would like to
In a big Hcare head the VVorld
Ilcrald announces "The Progressives

Message." Sure thing they are. So
are the democrats, but they will re

oisui. It is hard telling what the pro
gressives will do.
important parts of his message, and
yet, the senator is called a "pro
gressive." The senator is in a
position to know, which goes a great
deal farther with us than the long
distance bellyaching of thesocalled
"progressives" a thousand miles
away from the base of operations.
I'nele Sam and President Diaz are
getting their heads together for the
purpose of gett itig the Cent ral American
iiddle cleared up. This menus that
it will be cleared all right and that
there is going to be something doing
lwn there if that man Zelaya docs

Senator JHurkett is drafting a
hill along the line suggested by th
president to revise the entire scheme
of judieialf procedure in the federal
ciirts makingjit less expensive and
simpler. If this bill should pass it
would be a great thing for the poor
fellow who hns to go to court and
hs.s little to go with, .'ml yet it
has been said that Senator Murkett

President Taft should at once be

then, eomejo think of it.tlie World
Herald has never been satisfied
with the work of any republican
alTicisl, and in fact '.lure lias lu'cn
name things that a democratic
!Hcial has done which has not suit
ed the same paper. Fact is the
World-IIcrald is much plenty knocker.
Washington dispatches Sunday say
that the "insurgents" held a meeting
Saturday for the purpose of changing
the rules. Among the names of those
in attendance were three Nebraska
congressmen known as Norris, Hin-
shaw and Kinkaid. These three
fellows are willing to go in with the
dcmocratsjto change the rules of
the house so that a minority can over
rule the speaker. In other words,
they are willing to play into the hands
of the democrats and give them stand
ing enough so that" they can go into
the next campaign and tell the voters
that they "killed the bear." This will
mean that every republican will go
into the campaign next fall with
handicap. It will mean that the chan-
handicap. It will mean that the
chances of electing a republican United
States senator from Nebraska will
be lessened because of the coalition
of these en with the democratic
minority in congress, giving them the
chance to get out on the stump and
claim that it was the democratic
party which was responsible for what
legislation may be made. These men
when then want votes next fall
should get them from democratic
sources instead of asking rrcpublieann
to send them back where they can
bushwhack and harass the rcpublica
party in the rear. In calling them
"insurgents" they are well named,
and we do not believe that the rank
and file of the republican party will
sanction anything of the kind.

the city of Lincoln wants to remem

the world that get along with as
small a police force as does our capi

cities of its size that do as much
business or have as great bank de

sum of five dollars was willing to risk
his reputation and a term in the pen

of this stripe can be given them.

and as Charley is .still roaming about
upon this mundane sphere, in apparent

acquiring husband and Sheriff Quinton
was instructed to gather in the gentle

dence where he was further instructed
to house and board her until further
orders, all of which the sheriff pro
ceeded to do.

a continuance to the next term of the

more will be done in the case.
