BRYAN IN 1912.
Bryan will bo a candidate for the
Democratic nomination for President
in 1912. Such is the announcement
made from the Commoner "office this
morning. There solution of the much
defeated candidate to try once more
to gain a residence in Washington
will be received by his democratic
brethren with mingled feelings of
rejoicing and disgust. Many demo
crats feel that thcro is a chance for
Bryan to yet be president. Many
others believe that he should step one
side and give some' other man a
It is doubtful however whether his
announcement to try for the nomina
tion will be received very cnthustically
outside of Nebraska. He has been
given three trials at goal and has failed
to kick between the posts each time.
There are many democrats outside
of the Cornhuskcr state who believe
that three times is out aJ that tnc
next man is the batting order should
try to solve the republican curves.
There is no doubt but that this
announcement of Mr. Bryan to be
come a candidate will be received by
his Nebraska democratic friends with
much delight. In many ways it will
solve the much puzzling question of
who will try for the nomination for
U.'S. Senator this fall, and this resolu
tion on the part of Mr. Bryan will to
to a great extent clarify the atmosphere
in democratic circles as far as Mr.
Bryan is concerned. However the
question now to be solved will bo one
which will be repsonsible for : many
sleepless nights on the jmrt of some
who want to read their title clear to
the U. S. Senate. , .
The question to bo solved now will
be whether Governor Shellcnbcrger
will be the man to try to clown Mr.
Burkctt orj whether Congressman
Hitchcock will be the lucky or possibly
the unlucky man to make the' try.
In the meantime Mayor Dahlman will
be very much on the anxuious seat.
With Shellcnbcrger makirtg the try
for the senatorial goal Dahlman will
imagine he will have a mighty good
chance to land the nomination' for
governor. But with the former out
of the senatorial race the chances for
Dahlman to land the governorship
nomination' will be very slim. ' Take
it all around it'will be a merry chase
among the democrats the next; few
fit the people which was not balled up
by the gang in the lower bunch of the
legislature was uncerimoniously fired
over the tramsom in the upper.
There will be nothing accomplished
by getting that set of legislators
together except to saddle a bill of
expense upon the tax payers. It will
only bo a year or less when a new set
will be elected, and if the people are
wise they will weed out the incom
petents from the last session and send
back the good ones only. That is
the only solution of the problem.
Editor Taylor of the Central City
Nonpariel continues to see wrong. He
says that this paper said that an "in
surgent republican was not a progress'
ive republican. Hardly my long
suffering editorial brother, hardly.
A man may progress so far along a road
that he will fall into the rivet after
the bridge has been washed away. Ho
is still a man, but a dead one. A
republican may progress so far that
he is not a republican any more. Note
the free silver fellows several years ago,
who arc now democrats. Also note
the railroad corporations and pass
advocates of only four years ago who
are now fighting Burkett and who in
1908 voted for Bryan out of sympathy
Several of them were prominent in
that meeting last week which you
say was held by "fifty prominent re
publicans of the capital city." Say
Taylor, attend that insurgent meeting
in Lincoln next Thursday and see who
are the fellows who howl the hardest.
Then quietly go about and find out
where they were in 190C when the pass
question was up, and also where they
were in 1908 when Bryan ran the last
time for the white house. Of course
some of them have been loyal repub
licans in the past and for that matter
can be considered so yet, but have
allowed their enthusiasm to get the
better of their judgement.
An attempt was made last night
to organize an "insurgent" club at
ic state university for the purpose
of getting the students against Senator
Burkett. Paul Clark and Judge
England were sent up there to do the
insurging and the meeting was called
to order. Nobody from among the
students body would accept the office
of president of the club and so they
elected a Btudent who was not present.
Resolutions were introduced con
demning Senator Burkett, but they
were not adopted. Other things of
an insurgent character were brought
into the meeting and were set down
upon and finally the meeting ad
journed without citherClark orEngland
being invited to address the meeting.
his move of the insurgents to carry
their fight into the state iniversity
should be condemned and the action
of the students in refusing to be pulled
nto the fight speaks well for. them
Advises from Washington show
that Governor Shellcnbcrger Is ser
ious in his desire to call an extra
session of the Nebraska legislature to
pass some of the laws that the last
legislature balled up in the trying. We
fail to see where the state would gain
anything at this time by the calling
together of the bunch which were
conspicuous last winter more than
anything else for their incompetency.
Surely if they could not pass laws then
they, cannot now. The1! whole thing
in a nut shell is that tho governor has
hoj-es that by getting the bunch
together they can pass sonic, laws
which will look so good, on paper that
the voters will be caught napping
before the court has "time "to pass
upon them. The calling of-a special
session of the last legislature is nothing
more or less than covering' the trap
over with leaves so-ihe Unwary voter
will not Bee it until - bo iiu caught.
It is a well known fact that'tlic dcriio-
cratis majority in the senate of the,
last Nebraska legislature was so
completely under the control of cor
poration influences ' led by Ransom
et al that everything leht'rag to bene-
We rather thought that some o
those fellows who have been talking
around so much about Lincoln being
a hot-bed for boot legging and gambling
would be called before they had worked
their bluff very long. The reverend
gentleman who went to that city a
short time ago and could not work
his scheme and then turned round and
attempted to convey the impression
that Lincoln was full of boot legging
dens and gambling places, builded
better than he knew. A wet organ run
in the interests of trying to make people
believe such rot published the preach
er's statements and then added: "Mr
Chief of Police if you want to see those
places we can show them to you.'
Chief of Police Malone has called the
Echo dan and before the echo has
died away he will be called upon to
make good his statements which of
course he will be unable to do. On
top of this Chief Malone says he wil
show the saloon men a few things
Chief Malone docs not go into any
thing without he knows what he is
doing and the public can rest assured
that when he gets started there wi
be something doing all the time
He is a good officer and he does
not relish the idea of having peopl
say ho is not trying to do his duty
There will be warm times in Lincoln
when Chief Malone takes the war

Unique and certain of results is the
method employed by S. G. McMahn,
a mining prospector, in killing coyotes
and other predatory animals in the
Whisky Valley district in cenrral
Washington. He uses nitro-glycerine
and has already collected more than
$250 in bounties on scalps brought to
the office of the auditor of Kittitas
county since January 1.
While at Ellensburp; with a wagon
load of pelts the other day he told a
number of sportsmen and habitues at
the court house the secret of his
success as a bounty-earner, saying
"I'm out in the hills prospecting
most of the time and my only com
panions are the coyotes and other
wild things. In this instance the
company is worth money only when
dead and is nothing more or less than
an annoyance while alive.
"I haven't the time to hunt coyotes,
but to make a little 'easy money' and
at the same time rid the district of
some of the nuisances I 'load' pieces
6f meat with nitro-glycerine, such as
I use in blasting the ore-bearing rock,
and scatter the tib-bits near the
coyotes' haunts in the hills.
"The coyotes come along, some
times singly,but more often in twos,
threes and in packs; they find the
meat and, as it looks good to 'cm,
they gulp it down and then it is
all over with 'em.
"The explosive kills instantly, but
does not injure the pelt enough to
prevent the county auditor from
paying the bounty of $1 each,, as
provided by the state law.
"I've killed hundreds of these pests
in my time and I expect to 'bag
1 . r 41 . 1 r . I,
many more ueiurc niu tu ui uic ycm.

"Tired at Three O'clock?" "No Sir! I Use the Monarch"
IF typewriters were machines run trr mechanical means in
stead of human hands, you would find that, with a given amount
of power, a Monarch could be run at a higher maintained speed
than other typewriters.
Run by "girl power," you find that the Monarch is run at
a higher all-day average speed than other typewriters, and
without a "tapering off," Irom fatigue toward the day's end.
Both these truths are due to the fact that
lightens the draft, uses -power more economically. Eliminates
the waste of energy that typifies the heavyrtouch machines.
This in turn means increased production per machine and de
creased cost of typewriter work "oer folio. , .
