"Don't go to the editor and ask
that a legitimate news story be held

would be just as unreasonable and
just as indelicate to go to the ban
ker and ask him to give you money,
or to the lawyer and ask him to give
up one of his cases. A newspaper
is a bnsiness enterprise; when you
ask it to hold out news, you ask it
to injure its own business."

The democratic party next year
will not promise every thing. It will
put forth all its strength to do
something, and do it right. It will
welcome a finish fight in behalf of
the rights of the people to be rid of

or a fight in defense of the state
and of local self-government or on
Ui in Wisconsin the republicans
have taken to booming Senator La
Follette for president. This is con
sistent with the reform talk of the
republicans. Senator LaFallette
comes nearer representing what
Roosevelt talks about than any re

Nebraska reformers should fall
into line for LaFolIette.
The Nebraska railway commis
sion has spit on the question of
railroad control. Chairman Win
uett, according to the LicolnNews,
thinks the United States should
take full charge of the transporta
tion business, both state and inter
state. While Commissioner Wil
liams says the state should never
lurrender their right over the com
mon carriers, and there vou are.
The Kansas City Journal, repub
lican in politics but out of patience
with grandstand rough-riderdom
and disgusted with hypocritical
"square-dealers," has this to say:
"It is given out at the White House
that no reply will be made to Dr.
W. J. Long's demand for either
proof or apology. This is hardly
a square deal. The president went
out of his way to discredit Dr. Long
and his literary work in the eyes of
the country and simple fairness re
quires that he shall not ignore his
victim's plea for justice.
Tin: Brooklyn Kagle notes a de -
I "ease of forty per cent in the num-
ber of young men who are enrolling
to becoming preachers. Too bad
that there was not a similar decrease
in the enrollment for other profess
ions. The professional field is
crowded, while there is a de
demand for men in all other occu
pations. Mechanics are demand
ding better pay, while the public is
demanding better talent in the pul
pit and at the bar.
A very eminent gentleman writes
to an exchange and urges that there
be no attempt to regulate railroad
traffic by legislation but that law of
supply and demand, the competi
tion in the carrying trade, be left
to regulate that. In theory this is
good. However, in these days of
trusts and combinations there is no
such thing as competion. In nearly
every line of industry, territory is
parcelled out and the managers of
those industries figure how much
the-people are able to stand, and
then fix rates accordingly. This is
true of most other commodities as
well as freight and expressage.
The question of regulation is a dif
ficult one, but the railroads have
themselves made it necessarv.
George W. Lineger is no more.
He passed away at his home in
Omaha Saturday night. He was
last on the streets of the metropolis
when going to the Masonic temple,
where he made a plea be.fore the
grand lodge for an appropriation of
S2'.W for the Masonic Orphans'
tion, went home to die. He went
to bed and suffered and attack of
peritonitis, from which he never
recovered. Plattsmouth will ever
revere the memory of this noble
citizen, as it was principally through
his efforts that the Home was loca
ted in Plattsmouth. Since the lo
cation of that institution in this city
the deceased was a frequent visitor
and his whole soul seemed wrapped
up in providing a comfortable home
for infirm brothers. And the build
ding will stand for ages as a living
monument to the memory of one
whose soul's desire had been almost
reached when the grim hand of
Death laid its icy fingers upon the
manly form of George W. Lineger.
The deceased was 73 years ot age.
Orchard's Remarkable Story.
In the extraordinary story of
conspiracy, assassination and at
tempted assassination and whole
sale murder unfolded in the trial at
Boise, Idaho, by Alfred Horsley,
alias Harry Orchard, the witness
paints himself altogether too black
a villain. No jury can be expected
to believe him unless his testimony
is backed by credible witnesses.
In the history of strikes and quar
rels between wage earner and the
payer of wages no chapter is fuller
of outrage on the one side and vio
lent reprisal on the other than the
long struggle between the Colorado
miners and Western Federation of
If Orchard's story is true, he has
been the ready and murderous in
strument by which most of the
crimes charged against the miners
were committed- If his testimony
is not mostly romance, the man has
as great a mania for taking human
life as had the wretch calling him
self Holmes who wras hanged in
Philadelphia a few years ago for
one of a score of murders that were
unmistakably traced to him.
Men are so reluctant to believe in
the possible existence of a monster
such as Orchard confesses to being
that his narrative might well be
ruled out upon objections by coun
sel for defense but for the confident
promises of the prosecutson to con
firm it by other witnesses. If they
are able to do this they will have es
tablished the realty of a character
which men prefer to believe tnyth
lical until it is proven to be real.

At least that is the latest grapevine
from Marse Henry at Louisville.
A noted St. Louis divine says
that the Chicasro university is a
hotbed of infidelity. And up to date
nobody not under coal oil influ

except for the fact that he still
lives, canonized. If they admit

Party Issues in 1308.
Mr. Bryan is perhaps right in his
forecast that the tariff, though al
ways an important issue, will not
be the paramount issue between the
democratic and republican parties
in the election of a president and
congress next year.
The St. Louis Republic says that
it is probable that on this question
the republican party will shift its
position close to the ground always
held bv the democratic party. The
republicans will certainly declare
for the principles of tariff protec
tion, and they may be expected to
add to this declaration a promise to
revise the Dingle' act in the inter
est of the masses. The angry pro
tests against the robberies of the
Dingley act that are coming from
the rank and file of republican vo
ters seem to make some such con
By all traditions of the party the
democratic platform will declare for
a revenue tariff, and it will be wise
to add the recommendation that the
sources of tariff revenue be chosen
with a view to giving fair and ade
quate incidental protection to
American industries and to the peo
ple employed in them. It might
be well to go further and add a pro
viso that any industrial product that
is monopolized by a trust, or un
lawful combination in restraint of
trade, shall go on the free list until
the combination is dissolved.
But barring some such proviso as
that last named, there is not likely
to be the clear-cut line of division
between the tariff planks of the two
parties that has existed in former
contests. The democratic principle
of reasonable and moderate tariff
schedules is proven so eminently
correct by the logic of republican
tariff robber' that the republicans
will be forced to give it recognition
in their declarations next vear.
President Roosevelt's democratic
policies for the regulation interstate
railroads and great corporations en
gaged in interstate trade have
proven so popular with the repub
lican masses that the republican
convention of next year cannot es
cape giving them the strongest kind
of indorsement, with an unequivo
cal promise to continue them.

elections of next year, will still fur-!
ther commit the republican part
to the democratic principle of de
feuding the rights of the many
against the aggressions of the few.
So there seems little prospect of
sharp divisions in the platforms of
the two parties on these important
issues. The great difference will
be that democrats will be sincere in
their promises, while scores of the
most powerful leaders in the repub
lican party will reluctantly consent
to these democratic principles with
the secret purpose of betraying
A year in advance of the meeting
of the national conventions it seems
probable that the deepest and the
broadest lines of division in next
year's contest will relate to the
preservation of the rights of the
states against the dangerous aggres
sions with which the republican
party threatens them, to the reck
less extravagance with which
the people's money has been voted
away, to hold the usurpations of
legislative powers by the president
and to the frightful expense our im
perialistic insular policy!
Whatever the republican conven
tion may do, the democratic con
vention will declare in the strongest
possible terms in favor of making
our inland waterways navigable to
their utmost capacity both as car
riers of freight and the most effec
tive regulators of railroad charges.
The supreme issues on which the
Democrats next year should take
their firmest stand will be for de
fense of the constitutional rights
of the states, for preservation of the
S3rstem of government under which
this country has grown to be the
greatest in all history, and to check
the tendencies which would make
of the president an executive as au
tocratic as the Czar.
