And the electoral votes are in the east
llKi'i in. u an papers seem to have
nothing better to feed their readers on
than the curious yarn that Mr. Tag
gart of Indiana and Mr. Sheehan of
New York are quarreling. There is
nothing In the story, and as Sheehan
appointed Taggart his chairman and
Taggart appointed Sheehan his assist
ant, the story Is not only baseless but
foolish. The two men are the best of
friends. Mr. Taggart Is a breezy and
jovial hustler and Sheehan Is a secre
tiveand pussy-footed whisperer, and
each man knows his job and is doing it
right ably, too.

Meaning of Labor Day.
Mr. Samuel Gompers. president of
the American Federation of LaUr,
entertains soa.e remarkably interest
ing a id prof mini views upon the
meat. big of Labr li.iy. That day
marks a new epoch in human history.
It differs essentially from son. e of the
other holidavs of the year i:i that it
L'loriiies 110 armed c mllicts or buttles
of man's priiwessover man.
It is a deep-seated propensity of hu
man nature to observe with appro
pi i.ttecereni"iiies the periodical return
of certain times, suspending the ordin
ary business of life on certain days to
memorialize some Important event or
principle. The observance of such oc
casions is an evidence of growing civil
ization, unquestionably. Our Inferior
fellow-animals pursue an unvaried
course of existence from day to day,
but man Introduces changes by elevat
ing S'Miie days above others. Sunday
has been of Incalculable benefit to
mankind. The institution of the week
ly rest day or festival and of numerous
other holidays an increasing number
of them in recent years gives needed
relaxation and cheers the heart of man.
"Among all the festive days of the
year," writes Mr. Gompers, "of all the
days commemorative of great epochs
in the world's history, of all the days
celebrated for one cause or another,
there is not one which stands so con
spicuously for social advancement of
the common people as the first Mon
day in September of each recurring
year Labor Day. Labor Day is the
day conceded by no one class of people
to another it is the day of the work
ers, secured by the workers for the
workers, and for all. Itsobservance is
now sanctioned by law in thirty-three
states, In the District of Columbia and
In the United States territories.
"No matlal glory or warlike pj n p
signals Labor Day. The marching
host of workers manifest their growing
intelligence and unalterable determitv
ation for the effacement of the unnat
ural and brutal causes that Impel man
to raise his hand against his brother.
Labor Day stands for industrial peace
and for the toilers' economic, political,
social and moral advancement."
Next Monday is Labor Day, and the
unions of Plattsmouth have made ar
rangements to celebrate the event in a
most appropriate manner. Among
the speakers for the occasion is A. II.
Floaten, of Colorado, member of the
Federal Union 104, A. L. C. of Color
ado "Hull Pen" fame, who was deport
ed by Governor Peahody and Gen. Hell,
at the Instigation of the Citizens' Al
liance and the Mine Owners'.lAssocia
tionof Cripple Creek. Mr. Floaten's
talk will prove very Interesting.
Cvn Roosevelt winder that the con
servat ive business men of t he count rv,
w ho above all need stability and secur
ity in ll ci; affairs, want a president
In the White House whose tempera
ment, naming and character w ill ena
ble them to go to shep at nlht with
out fear of waking on the following
morning and learning from startling
headlines In the newspapers that the
president had dispatched warships to
Turkey, Morocco, Venezuela, China or
where not, on Insufficient Information
or Impossible demands or has been
cabling bunc'inie messages that he
wants "Perdlcarls alive or Ralsull
dead," or ordering some of our south
ern Republics to "act decently" and
"pay their debts!"
nunviiAKD Ri'hkktt evidently be
lleves that "a bird in the hand is worth
two in the bush," and will not follow
the example of that great Jurist and
statesman, Alton 11. Parker, by resign'
ingthe position he already occupies
after accepting the nomination for a
higher one. Oh, no, "not on your life"
Is the great w ind-bag going to take any
chances. He believes In "keep all you
got and get all you can," or, in other
words, "hogging the whole cheese."
Rooskyklt ought to be delighted
with an anti-race-suicide bill lie
fore the Georgia legislature. It pro
vldes that no father shall pay a poll
tax. Fathers of four children shall be
given the title of captain and of six
children the title of colonel by the
state. Kvery father of ten children
becomes cx-offlclo a member of the
governor's staff. No bachelor will be
entitled to vote. Probably the fathor
of twenty children becomes an admiral
Foit the sake of his children Teddy
might well ask to be defeated. All of
them received at St. Louis such flunkey
attentions as would have caused dis
gust In the reception of princes in St.
Petersburg or Vienna When Miss

gregation rose to receive her. and the
three boys were made distinguished
guests of the management and lodged

every afternoon: They liked it, and
the people paid the freight.

world has ever yet succeeded in Impos

Midget Mickey was recently called
upon to address a Sunday school, and
In the course of his remarks spoke in
substance as follows: "Roys, italways
pays to be honest. Some time ago,
while returning home from the state
house, I handed the street car conduc
tor a nickle, but as It was getting dark,
he took It for a quarter and handed me
back twenty cents in change. Now,
lKjys, I might have kept the money
the conductor w ould never have know n
what became of it no one but myself
and God. So I called him back and
handed him the money. I know that
God w ill rew ard me for that, as he has
rewarded me for other things I have
done. He found that He could trust
nie with little things, so he kept giv
ing me more and more until I am gov
ernor of this great state. Remember,
boys, It pays to be honest like me."
The above story reminds the Journal
editor of one told by old hypocrite
down in Missouri to his Sunday school
class of boys. He was endeavoring to
Illustrate the effectiveness of prayer
He told these Innocent lads that once
upon a time he was without anything
to eat in his house, and sitting alone
In his office one day, thinking over his
condition, the thought struck him
that perhaps God would aid in his ef
fort to provide something for his fam
ily to eat. He kneeled down and
prayed loud and long for the Divine
llulerto lend him aid. After brushing
the dust from the knees of his pants,
he had occasion to go across the street
to the court house, and lie told his
Sunday school class that In crossing the
street a shower of gold pieces fell di
rectly In front htm, which seemed an
answer to his prayer from heaven. In
this manner hunger was driven from
the door. Now, what are parents
thinking about when they permit such
hypocrites to teach their children.
When the cd'.cacy of prayer and In n
csty are Illustrated by two personages
who have made fortunes by cheating
their neighbors, isitanv wonder that
Infidelity is growing dally?
