The Taft idea: "Get the nomination,
and get it quick."
Is he a Cannoneer or an electioneer
in his punning for delegates.
Republican papers are insisting that
business in every line will boom this
spring. How about the bread line?

will be there, and will deliver a speech

miles to hear.
last Saturday one would naturally come
to the conclusion that the inspiration had
, already reached the remotest corners
of Cass county.
Secretary Bonaparte is sure that
the only way to reach the trusts is to
fine them. Most other people think that
cutting off their tariff protection would
make them more miserable and more
over help those who consume trust products.
Th e Taft boom may be defined as 'that
thing ethereal which surrounds the state
of Indiana." And what is the state of
Indiana? ' 'Frozen solid for Fairbanks. "

It is hard to te'.I who would have

mary last Tuesday, had a full vote
turned out. On account of the storm
which raged constantly during the en
tire day but a few voters turned out.
And of course the Taft supporters were
urged to take advantage of the situa
tionwhich they did.
Canidates for public office and their
enthusiastic friends sometimes lose
sight of the fact that the party and the
principles it stands for are of more
importance than any one man or set of
men. Whenever a man gets to the
point that he is greater than his party,
then the party is committing a grievous
error to stand by the man. The prin
ciples of the grand old democratic
party will sooner or later prevail, and
the sooner they dp win the better is is
for the people.
The money market is "tight" and
strangely enough they do say it is to be
blamed onto "water," too.
The current crop of spring poets
seems to be backward. But then, we
have hope they will thaw out shortly.
As an aid to the propagation of
spring fever the baseball "dope" in the
sporting departments of the current
' dailies ought to help some.

ays: "John D. got half that big fine

still the price of oil is rising." But!
why be so unkind? We've been trying
o forget that "rise" they take out of
John D. every time he does anything.
At the regular meeting of the city
council Monday night a resolution favor

streets, as a protection against any fu

an experienced civil engineer to ascer

should be done as soon as possible, and
the work proper began as early as con
ditions will permit. There should be no
unnecessery delay in the matter.
The Kansas City Post is one of the
most reliable democratic papers in the
west. Incessant in its support of W.
J. Bryan, and most remarkably well ed
j ited. Ever since the old Kansas City
Times fell into the hands of the Star
:- gang, an effort has been made to estab
lish an up-to-date democratic daily in
that city, but they have all failed until
the present publishers secured the Post.
It is bright and newsy and its editorial
page teems with well written article
upon the leading issues of the day, and
they are right to the point. It is just
such a publication as the Journal can
conscientously commend to every demo
crat in the land.
Regardless of the fact that death
and disease lurk in old currency, lots of
us would take a chance on a bundle of
the filthy stuff.
The Toledo Blade takes a shot at Col

covered a woman by the name of Dinah

proceeds to explode with: "The

Dinah Might in Colorado the other day,
but very likely she has gone off now."

Senator LaFollette recently tele
graphed a statement to a paper in his
home state. Hear what he had to say
by way of introduction: "There can
be no agricultural, industrial or com
mercial freedom without government
control of transportation. Railways are
inherent monopolies. So long as their
stocks and bonds are subjects of gamb
ling speculation there can be no sound
basis for things transported and no reli
able rules for the conduct of trade or
industry. The strengthening of the in
terstate commerce law, the basis of rate
making on the true -value of railway
property, the control of service as well
as rates, are all necessary to preserve
this government for the people. We
should make the law effective now. "
Isn't that awful? And from a republi

Gov. Sheldon made a statement the
other day to the effect that any candi
date the Republicans may nominate for
president will be a better man than the
Democrats can put up. We sincerely
trust, for the Governor's sake, he did
not make any such statement. If he
did, he is to be severly condemned. It
would show a narrowness of mind and
hide-bound partisanship not met within
these days in men of intelligence. It
represents the feeling that in past
years has put men of acknowledged
unfitness in office simply because they
were on the regular ticket ajfeeling
that the country has slowly been strug

shows forth the old-time "yellow dog"
party spirit, that branded as a traitor
every one that dared to "scratch his
ticket," no matter how notorious a
reprobate a candidate might be. Worst
of all the statement is not true, and
everybody knows it. To say that an
untried man like Taft will make a bet
ter president than Bryan, Folk, or
others that might be mentioned, is
certainly open to argument. To broad
ly assert, however, that any. man the
republicans may put up, even such a
man as Foraker, would make a better
president than either of the two Demo
crats mentioned, is certainly a most
foolish and unwarranted assertion. The
Record has always had a good deal of
respect for Gov. Sheldon, deeming him
a man above the average office holder
in honesty and a desire to do the right
thing. If it should transpire that he
has been correctly reported, we must
confess our respect would receive a

There seems to be a few of those
old disgruntled gold-bug democrats, or
rather side issues of the republican
party, who are attempting to have
their say in the selection of delegates-at-large

will be well to spot those fellows at the
state convention in Omaha next week,
and spot them early in the organization
of that body, too.
The State Journal and Omaha Bee are i
making a desperate effort to raise "a!
