And the women will soon begin to try on their Easter bonnets, "just to see how it looks.' Several boys; car of powder; curios ity; box of matches; usual result; six hurt; Oklahoma. The middle west is to have an in vasion of Taft, who will attempt to elucidate a bunch of "my policies." Chicago university has added a sea serpent to its collections. Oddly enough it came from Prohibition Kansas. Down in Georgia-, Brown is to run against Smith for the governsnip. The Jones crowd probably will hold the balance of power. After all, the early bird perhaps is not to be commended so much for its wisdom as the worm is to be con demned for its folly. When a woman dies, and her hus band refuses to marry again, is it a compliment to his wife, or is it a sign he has had enough of it? What will Governor Cummins think? An Iowan says his state is turning Democratic. The "Iowa idea" may have a different meaning shortly. This is the time of year when most every man is poorer in worldly goods that at any other time of the yeras.The assessor is making his rounds. Thomas Express Piatt has expressed his desire for another term. If the New York legislators are liberal enough with their support, some of them may be given express franks. The New York stock exchange has closed the visitors' gallery to guard against cranks. The next thing proba bly to be done will be the erection of l)omb proofs on the floor. With 15,000 people inside the con vention hall and 15,000 more turned away unable to gain admittance, no further proof that Mr. Bryan is some thing of a drawing card in necessai y. Americans have a perfect passion for writing letters of recommendation. When a man discharges an employe, the first thing he does is to give him a rtetter of recommendation saying that tie employe possesses all the qualifica tions that a man in his line should possess. It is a rule of this countiy fiat the more wo-thless a man is, the more letters of recommendation he c irries. We were talking with a traveling man the other day who makes his home in Fremont and who has been on the road for a number of years. This man says he has been converted of late in the political school and he says he is not the only traveling man in Ne braska that has been taking a school ing, but there are thousands. All his life he has been a republican, but he is now enthusiastic for Bryan and hopes to see him the next president. Aurora Sun. The meeting of the democratic press association which met in Lincoln Tuesday was a grand success so far as attendance is concerned. Among the many questions under discussion was that of the establishment of a press bureau at Lincoln, under the manage ment of some writer of ability, for the purpose of furnishing the county news papers editorial. We opposed the proposion from the fact that no man can furnish such articles for all com munities. What wuld perhaps suit one section would not prove satisfactory in another. And we believe we know better what would meet with the ap- roval of the democrats of Cass county than any manager of a press bureau. Another thing is, the fact that if a man is not able to edit his paper as it should be, he should step down and out and give way lo some man who is able to do the work. A country editor should be able to edit his own paper. We are not in favor of providing a soft jobforany man to edit papers for a lot of men who are not able or are too lazy to edit their papers themselves. These are the rea o ns we oppose a press bureau. The St. Louis Times says: "No doubt it will go against the grain of the Toledo lumber princes to be sent to jail." Maybe knot, we opine. What an active press agent the Kais er must have. He breaks into print today with that Tweedmouth letter and the announcement of a raise in his sal ary. We do not knew of any provision in the constitution which provides that the President shall make diplomatic ap pointments with the advice and con sent of the Kaiser of Germany. "The time has come when we should prepare for a revision of the tariff," says Roosevelt. We maintain that the time has come when the tariff should be revised. While in Lincoln last week we learn ed that one of the Bryan clubs of that city had on their rolls many republicans who had expressed themselves for W. J. Bryan for president and who are pledged to support him at the polls. One club has a membership of over 1000, one third of whom are republicans. This is a seperate organization from that of the Bryan Volunteers which many republicans are also joining. While coming down from Lincoln the other day on the Missouri Pacfic to Union, we came in contact with O. G. Leidigh a young attorney of Nebraska City where he was born and reared. During our conversation he expressed himself as being decidedly in favor of Mayor Brown of Lincoln, for the democratic nomi nation for governor. This reminds us of the fact that we heard many news paper men who attended the entertain ment extended the boys by our peerless leader express themselves in the same manner. Under the present circum stances the Journal believes that Mr. Brown would prove a winner as a gu bernatorial candidate. Wasn't that a dandy "populist" con vention in St. Louis last week? Made up of hirelings of the republican party, is it any wonder that the true populists withdrew in disgust. Where were such men as General James B. Weaver, of Iowa, our own ex-Senator Allen? Neith er cared to attend a sham convention made up principally of a hoodlum ele ment of the eastern cities. The rank and file of the true populists were con spicuous by their absence. That is the principal reason the Nebraska delegates withdrew from the republican sideshow. They could discover none of the old fa- milliar faces that usually were present on such occasions. Relations with Venezuela are in a sad tangle, but the worst mix of all is that in relation to the claims of the New York and Bermudez company. The company was dispossessed of the Ber mudez asphal lake about four years ago by the government of Venezuela, un der the direction of President Castro. The government is now operating the lake and is selling the product to an American ri al of the Bermudez com pany, which, it is alleged, has already received more than 30,000 tons of asp halt belonging to the other company. It is believed that as a result of the submission of this question to the Sen ate, another effort will be made to have the Bermudez question submitted to international ardiiration. The Chester Hearld says: "If Roosevelt stole any ideas from Bryan, that of declining a nomination was not one of them." Bet you a dollar that Teddy will follow Billy in that furrow around the field. There is now more Teddy talk than a year ago. Labor organizations have passed resolutions against Taft and Mr. Roosevelt puts a message on the labor ace spot. Thea- dore is playing for a forcible third term annexation. Then we will hear much about destiny tossing the office on Teddy lap. The people are weary of the con talk about the "republican party and God" doing things. The partnership has changed already. It is now "God and the republican party" with the head of the firm wanting to dissolve the partnership. The notice of dissolution will be published the day after election York Teller. Box Social.
