1THI.1SIIKD WEEKLY AT
Democratic City Convention.
The democrats of the city of l'latts
niouth arc requested to meet at the
council chamber on Friday eveuinu,
March 18, 1004, at 8 o'clock for the
purpose of nominating candidates for
mayor, city clerk, treasurer, police
JudK'e, two memtjers of the board of
education, and one councilman from
each ward. The ward primaries will
be held at 1 o'clock on the same even
ing. Everyone interested in securing
competent and reliable citizens to fill
these Important positions should be
sure and attend the primaries.
John Lvtz, Chairman.
W. 1!. K late li, Secretary.
Sisu a souk' of candidates after the
pic; nine and ninety lepubllcans rais
ing a hungry cry.
Foil the republican nomination for
president no one will be considered who
lias not led a regiment of cowboys. '1 lie
Issue Is militarism and another half
million for the White House.
Somk people are about as well quail
lied to pray as others arc to preach
Other people are wondering when
the gentleman who went to Kentucky
some time ago will make that demo
cratic speccli he was in such haste to
return to Nebraska to deliver?
iMETitK'ii can be proud of one thing
lie will go dwn in the future history
of this great, grand and glorious conn
try as the llrst United States senator
to be indicted by a federal grand jury
although the country has struggled
along without this blemish for 12!
As the world advances In Christen
dom the armies and navies of the dif
fcrcnt countries become larger and
better provided to kill people. Is this
an extension of the doctrine of 'Teacc
on earth, good will towards man?"
Doctrines and events seem to want to
part company at times.
The Weeping Water Herald copies
with half-hearted approval, the Jour
nal's satirical remarks about our
brainy (?) congressman, Mow-hard
Hurkctt. Is this a sample of the depth
of the apparent enthusiasm toward.the
honorable gentleman who confessedly
Is mentally unable to understand
The Courage of His Convictions.
A Lincoln special to the Omaha
World-Herald, under date of March
says: "A meeting of tbe I'nion Vet
erans' Republican club in this city last
night ended In almost a free-for-all.
hx-Congressman Strode fouirht a reso
lution indorsing llurkett for the sen
ate, and wheu pressed for an explana-
nion, he accused the congressman of
Irregularities in connection with the
I'lattsmoiitli post otliee. A f ter a storm v
debate and rapid lire repartee puntua-
ted with personalities, the club ad-
lourned without taking any action.
The entire proceedings of the evening
were expunged from the records, and
the veterans were not talking today."
vidently our "Auctioneer-like" Con
gressman will not not have as smooth
idling in his senatorial aspirations.
even in his own home, as some of his
most intimate friends had Imped for.
It is stated upon good authority that
John N. Ilaldwin,' the V. 1'. attorney,
who was responsible for Midget Mick
ey's nomination two years ago, is now
opposed to his renoinination. The
reason for this is Ilaldw in desired that
certain men be named for the Omaha
police board, and that, at least, one
certain man should not be named.- lie
communicated his desire to the gov
ernor and the midget intimated that
he would prayerfully consider it. He
did consider it and named men con
trary to lialdwin's wishes. Hal win is
a man who cannot brook divided alle
giance, and when the governor inti
mated (by intimating prayer) that
there was a higher power than liald
win, the break came along with I Said
win's declaration that Mickey's sup
port must come trom some other pow
er he could not have his support for
the second term. Will the midget gov
ernor have to pay a penalty by defeat
for a renoinination because lie failed to
do the bidding of the high-muck-amuck
of the Union I'acilic railway in
this one instance? Surely a republican
politician should have some retreat
where he would be safe from railroad
influence, even if lie must seek the se
clusion of the closet of prayer.
There is a certain schemer now en
gaged in slating candidates in the scv
eral wards for councllmen, and also a
candidate for mayor to do his bid
ding. Have an eye on this notorious
schemer for self-interest, and when
election day rolls round vote only, for
men in whom you have the most ex
pliclt confidence, and will serve all cit
izens alke, regardless of their station
in life. Let your future motto be
"Equal rights to all-special privileges
:The Nebraska City Tribune favors
the renoinination of Midget Mickey
and at the same time acknowledges he
has made some very grave mistakes
during his term. The Tribune seems
to think that, according to an cstab
tabllshcd precedent, Little Johnny
should be renominated, regardless of
the fact that he has shown himself en
tirely incompetent to fill the position
of Nebraska's chief executive. So long
as an onieial is a republican, incompe
tency seems to cut but little figure with
Every good citizen is interested In
the public schools. Their success de
pends a great deal upon the character
of the board of education. I'latts-

and Frlckc, whose terms expire. So

lievo in "pressing them into the ser
vice" for another term, at least.
Reithlu ans repose In serene contl

Hut within the past few weeks Gover
nor Taft's friends have shied his linen
cap into the ring. Why not? Mr
Roosevelt has Introduced him as "qual
Itied to make a first-class president,"
and at the banquet in his honor the
other night the poet exclaimed:
needs no prophet's eye to read his fate
his time will surely come to head the
state." 1 f anything shoild happen to
the president in one of his daily
speeches and things do happen some
times he might find another fast train
on the block.
, An old friend of the Journal down
at our old home in Missouri, writes to
learn "a horn we would support for

that state?" That Is easy. Josepl

A f test:
II. M. Siiknnh -iiskx, Clerk.
General Tkchxamty has had
somewhat of a meteoric career since he
began the practice of law. His first
case was that of Kd. liutler, the cele
brated St. Louis boodler, whom he
cleared. His next case was Senator
Dietrich, of Nebraska, whom he also
cleared easily on a technicality. Then
he skipped across the state, holding
his nose as he traveled, and took up the
case of Mayor Ames, of St. Paul, whom
he successfully pulled out of a bad box.
Elated at the success or dencrai iecii
nality, Senator Rurton, of Kansas, em
ployed him to defend him against the
indictment found by the federal grand
inrv. Tim (Jeneral again tried his
schenie.but Judge Adams ruled against
him and now Hurton must stand trial.
The business which General Prosperity
and General Technality have been en
gaged in for some time seems to be
growing very dull, and Is showing un
mistakable signs of dry rot.
The quest Ion arises, will Mr. Rurkett
accept the congressional nomination
and also the senatorial? In other
words.will he grab everything in sight?
In case of election to both positions
will ho resign one or the other or will
lu lwilil f:isl to all he cets? Here is a
question for some astute and enthusi
astic Rurkett sliouter to explain. -Nebraska
The "Auctioneer-like" Congress
man's friends can't answer, U-cause
they know he will be renominated for
congress and then await further devel
opments as to the senatorship, and if
elevated to the latter position, proposes
to put the taxpayers of the first dist rict
to the expense of a special election to
select his successor.
