As the price cf cattle and corn decreases, inconsequence of pub lishing to the world the depravity of the packers, the farmers will have good cause of complaint against the administration. The people have been taxed or years to pay tor a cattle and beef inspection bureau that has evidently shirked its work and the republican politicians who have had charge of it are either in competent or have been induced by the lieef trust to overlook their de pravity. There should Ijc an amend ment adopted to the meat inspection law, that all those found guilty of lax inspection, or those convicted of packing diseased meat, or in filthy condition, should be imprisoned with a diet of embalmed beef and their cells kept in the same condi tion as they allowed the packing houses to be in.

If Governor Cummins wins in the August convention in Iowa, it means that he will succeed Mr. Pol liver in the United .States senate, and there will be one forceful re publican in the upper house of con gress to deny in debate and on roll call that it is necessary to rob one half of the American .industries in order to afford adequate and just protection to the other. Thk New York Sun declares that President Roosevelt is the only man that can make the Panama Canal an actuality. As it is estimated it will take ten years to complete the job withthe"president making the "dirt fly," but at the rate the work is now progressing it will probably take twenty years. It will be neces sary to hire President Roosevelt to complete the job after his term ex pires, if the Sun presists that he is the only man that can do it. Thk house of represenatives, on June 5th, adopted a resolution look ing to the established by the govern incut of an armor-plate plant. Th extorteonate prices charged bv the armor-plate trusts for its product have made the ownership and oper ation of such a plant by the govcr ment a necessity. To allow private corporations to hold a monopoly of things indispensable to the gover meut, and thereby to fleece the pub lie as the armor plate trust, the powder trust, the beef trusts, the coal trust, the steel trust, and others have done, is an unpardonable sin and shame. If the tariff rates on trust products were reduced or abolished there would le competiou which would break down the monop oly that these trusts now enjoy. Put the republican politicians refuse to revise the tariff and seem quite willing to vote appropriations for trust products at monopoly prices. packers and the agricultural depart ment were whitewashed and Gen. Miles was virtually punished for doing his duty. There can be no excuse, by those in authority, for this scandal, which has about ruined our export meat business and will fall heavily on the stock-growers and fanners, by decreased demand for corn and cattle and its accompanying fall in prices. Unfortunately, democratic farmers who have voted to turn the rascals out must suffer with re publican farmers who have voted to keep the rascals in and to per petuate the standpat policy that has been the chief cause of this re publican era of scandals.

Skcrktary Shaw and the presi dent and the Iowadelegation in Con gress have failed to control the Re publican situation in the Hawkeye State, and the victory of Govenor Cummins, with his ideas of tariff reform, is regarded as of excessive importance in national politics.

In the hearing before the house committee on agriculture, June 7th, respecting the Roosevelt charges against the packing house, Dr. Mel- vm, duel oi i ne nurcau oi annual industry,' was asked incidentally to st.Ue the number of govermeiit in spectors in Chicago. He answered 77 veterinarian, 5l stock examiners and 55 taggers, making 1S1 in all. Iu the whole service, he said, there are 783. What have these- 783 fed eral officers been doiugtor the past seven years: l lave tiiey ail, or any of them, K-en iu the play of the packers? Have they been conceal ing the truth for the sake of graft? If so, are they any worse than the bulk of federal employees under Roosevelt's "merit svstem"? llisiior I'ottkk calls a mock rake a hammer, and his admonition is, hammer; hammer!

I.et the press of the country ham mer, and keep it up until all the rottenness is hammered out of the republican parte of trusts and graf ters. All the exposures of rotten ness andgrafling have been brought to the notice of the public by non officials whichshows that the repub lican political machine will never cleanse itself and that the execution of the law is lax, although we are supposed to be governed by a stren uous administration. Therefore the voters must hammer the dere lict republican party into political oblivion. In reference to the rate bill passed recently by congress an observing congressman has said that the railroads can run a freight train through it and touch it nowhere. Thi is the result of the president sur rendering to the railroad magnates at the last hour. It is no wonder that the conservative people of the entire country are becoming distrustful of the president's sincerity on the many public questions in which he makes grand stand plays. A si'KCi.vi. trom Lincoln says that Congressman Pollard has sent word to his friends to call a primary unless all opposition is withdrawn. Judge K. P. Holmes is a canidade for congress and he probably will get the Lancaster del egagation. It is sated that three meetings have been heldduring th last few days and the nomination is to go to Judge Field of Lincoln or Judge Hay ward of Nebraska City. It is also said that Pollard's com mittee cannot muster enough votes to call a primary." PERKINS HOTEL GUTHMAN BROS., PR0PS. PLATTSMOUTH, NEBRASKA RATES $1.00 PER DAY First House West B. 5c M.
