Sknatoii Smoot should not overlook
his opportunity, lie can make a for

Dkmucbatic newspapers and leading
men In the party should put In more
time attacking republicans instead of
members of thclrown party.
As Ohio couple took an oath that
they'd never be divorced. Newly mar

It would appear, from all accounts,
that thcl'latUmouth Republican Ring
has agreed upon I. F. Dale, of Green
wood, for one of Its candidates for rep

so from the ring's mouth-piece the
"The Hand Writing on the Walt!"
A Washington special, under date of
pril 30, says:
"Representative John Sharp Will-
lams, of Mlssisslpl, the democratic
leader of the house, in an authorized
statement today, says he believes that
the nomination of Juo'e Parker at St.
Louis is assurred.
" 'It seemscleartomenow,' said Mr.
Williams, 'that Judge Parker will be
nominated by such an overwhelming
vote that there will be substantially
no opposition when the time for the
convention arrives. .Individually, I
favor his selection.'
"Mr. William, when questioned con
cerning the report that he will be a
candidate for the presidential nomin
atlon, said: 'I think you know me well
enough to know that 1 have never been
Idiot enough to take this talk seriously.
There has been some talk of the nom
liiatiun of a southern man. I do not
think such a course would be wise just
now. That time will come and it w ill
not be very far distant, as history
counts time. When it does come the
south will be able to find 10,000 men
abler and 100,000 better men than
I am.' "
Tub News editor Is so given to lying
that he will resort to a "little white
lie" when the truth would suit better,
Ma you Geuinu will do his duty Ir
respective of the Polk-Farlcy coterie,
It Is better to have the 111 will of some
people than it is the good w ill, and we
would guess that Mayor Gering will
carry out his administration on this
Tub republican idea of reciprocity
is to grab all you can and keep all you
get. The clawlesscat in Tophet would
have a better chance than this
pet of Blaine and McKlnley in a con
gress whose policy is "stand pat."
Mayou Geuinu Insists that he has
remitted no fines, the court record not
Well, Mayor Gcrlng's word goes for
more than that, of the editor of the
News that should settle it.
In a speech on the tarilt last week
in the sciatc, Senator Bacon proved
that our sewing machines, sold for $1
In England cost t'25 in this country, and
American steel rails could be bought
85 ft ton cheaper in England than in
T hnsylvania or Alabama.
Wondkii if thero Is a mad-stone in
.Ibis vicinity. Some of Farley's friends
fear he Is somewhat afllictcd with the
"rabbies,"and they are on the look-out
for a mad-stone, the usual remedy for
such hydrophobic creatures.
It is a fact that Dietrich is lending
'what little Influence he has for Blow
bard Burkctt to succeed him in the
senate. Dietrich's idea Is to be suc
ceeded by a man with less ability than
himself, and he gets him in tiic person
of the brainless fop who mi-rcprescnts
the first congressional district.
The greatest exhibit that Nebraska
could make at the St. Louis Fair would
be to link together Midget Mickey
Bribe-taker Dietrich and Blowhard
Burkett three of the greatest nln
compoops on earth. To charge an ad
mission fee of ten cents, the republican
party would derive quite a campalg
fund. However, the exhibit wouldn'
reflect much credit to the state abroad
Ik Dietrich is exhonorated from the
charge of bribery, and the republican
party feel that ho has, what Is the
matter with bis re-election? Most
certainly a senator of Blowbard Bur
kett's calibre wouldn't improve the
state's representation in the U. S. sen
ate. But Dcrhap as a slv schemer
is more of success, and then railroads
can use him to a better advantage.
The total capital of industrial
trusts is $7,21(1,342,533. Those organ
ized since January 1, 1S'.I8, represent
the enormous sum of iy0;)013,,r00.
That is to say, more than nlnc-tentl
of existing trusts have been organized

power in 1807. They have sprung up
and nourished under a republican ad

In sending out advertising to the

the Street Fair and Carnival next
week, the Union Ledger was the first
on the list. In reply to our request to

MI8S SUSAN IS. ANTHONY at 84, as
chipper as a blackbird and merry as a
cricket, says, "I may not be here when
the campaign opens, but if anywhere.
I shall be somewhere." This is lucid
diplomatic, a little mysterious and de
llghtfully non-committal. She would
make an excellent secretary of state if
anything should happen to John Hay
Ouu republican friends insist that
the scandals of this administration
should have no part In next fall's cam
palgn, and that the grafting, boodle
snatching arraignments, indictments
and convictions which have filled even
conservative newspapers to overflow
lug, are "ordinary incidents." Why
not see what the people think about It?
The republic of Panama did not re
ceive that tlO.000,000 about April 1st
as the Associated Press announced that
It would. There are still complica
Hons, law-suits, appeals, obstacles
hitches, snarls, and other impedi
mcnts. And now Colombia actually
stands boldly up, declares that she has
been plundered, and Is ready for war,
Boi'ukk Cochuan made a trcmend
ous sensation In congress recently by
his brilliant and eloquent speech
against Teddy's usurpation of legisla
tlvc functions. The accidental presi
dent will probably hereafter rank him
with Senator Carmack, whom he not!
fled that "he would sec him in h 11
before he would grant him any favors.
The proposition to suspend a state
from the Union on account of Its re
liglon Is about as rank as anything
ever heard of. But It can be done.
Congress refuses to make a martyr of
Senator Smoot because President
Smith has six wives, President Itoose
veltcangetln his patent by simply
Issuing an executive order that Utah
Is no longer one of the United States,
Congressman Baker, of New York
has a keen sense of Justice. He has
made five efforts to hitch on to the ap
propriation bills a provision to rclm
burse the railroads of the country for
the .amount they have expended In
dead-heading Roosevelt and his suite
The republicans do not seem to appro
elate Mr. Baker's liberality. In fact
they secra to resent It. They probably
think that a frequent railroad train is
a proper pcrqulsito of the executiv
Recent speeches In congress, direct
cd detininely and with mature consld
cration at the issues of the coming
campaign, disclose no sign of conflict
The Intellectual party spokesmen
both houses, representing all sections
of the country, have given precedence
In tho deliberate arguments to the
same Issucsof government. They hav
adaresseci themselves to the same
faults of republican legislation and ad
ministration. In the situation of par
tics there Is not a timely or pressing
issue upon which the democracy Isdi
vlded. There Is every reason except
the reason of Individual selfishness
for a consolidation of all the elements
which naturally range themselves un
dor the banner of democracy.

the cough loose, lessens the severity
