President Roosevelt is an advocate of
legislation providing for publicity i l re
spect to campaign contributions. He has
impressed upon congress in strong lan
guage the neccesity for a law which will
prevent the debauchery of the electorate.
It is to be feared, however, that the
president's party, as represented in con
gress, is not eager for legislation which
may cut down its campaign fund this
year. In l0i President Roosevelt bit
terly denounced Judge Parker, the demo
cratic candidate for president, for assert
ing that trusts and corporations were
contributing to the republican cam
paign fund. Not long after this Mr.
Hughes, now governor of New York,
acting as counsel for a committee of the
legislature, brought out the fact that
one insurance company in New York
had given $50,000 to promote the election
of Mr. Roosevelt and the republican
ticket. Subsequently Mr. E. H. Harri
man, whose relations with President
Roosevelt were rather strained, an
nounced that during the campaign of
1904 he was urged to. raise a certain
amount for use in New York. Mr. Har
riman stated that this sum was raised
in good season, and that he was one of
Unless the republican majority in con
gress passes a publicity bill before the
close of the present session their party
will be placed in an ugly position during
the presidential campaign. The public
or at least that part of it which be

bilL The president's recommendations
to the fifty-eighth and fifty-ninth con
gresses have been practically unheeded
by the republican majority in congress.
It is true a committee of the house- did
give hearings on the bill introduced by

But there the matter ended.
President Roosevelt has spoken strongly '

The democratic mianority is powerless
to compel action, but if it had the support
of one-fourth of the republican members
of " the house it would be practicable to
pass a publicity bill and place the issue
squarely before the republican senators.
The action of two republican members of
tne house committee in filibustering and
finally leaving the committee room -to
prevent a favorable report on a publicity
measure has a rather melancholy signifi
cance. They may have desired to deprive
the democrats on the committee of the
political capital derivable from a report
signed by a majority of demecrats. But
the public will doubtless conclude that
the purpose of the republican filibuster
was to prevent any action whatever
which will discourage campaign contri
butions and interfere with the debauch
ery of the electorate. Is the republican
party willing to go into the presidential
campaign this year as the advocate of
unrestricted vote buying and corruption
of the electorate?

Booker Washington advises the peo

The republicans have given up all
hopes of defeating Mr. Bryan for the
nomination at Denver with Gove: nor
Johnson. Now the papers of that party
have commenced publishing clippings
from Tom Watson's Magazine. Tom,
you remember, was nominated as a pop
ulist by a gang of republicans in St.
Louis some few weeks since and they
have commenced to give him his orders.
He is to tirade against Mr. Bryan and
theyare to copy what he says. Sea!
Judge Parker will head the New York
delegation at Denver. This is said to
be the first time a defeated candidate
for president has been a delegate. If,
as it is intimated, Judge Parker is going
to Denver on purpose to assist in the
defeat of Mr. Bryan, there is not one
in the west who supported him four
years ago but will wish they had never
voted for him. No one could have given
him a warmer support than Mr. Bryan,
and in all his speaches in that campaign
appealed to his friends to support Mr.
At the "big conference" in Washing
ton where governors, cabinet members,
supreme judges, and multi-millionairs
meet to talk things over, Mr. Bryan in
troduced the following: "Resolved,
That this conference expresses its deep
regret that ex-President Cleveland is
prevented by sickness from participat
ing in this historic meeting and expresses
its sincere wish for his speedy re
covery." It was the nice thing for Mr.
Bryan to do, and he can always be de
pended upon to do the nice thing. The
resolution was adopted by a standing
Hastings Democrat: The state
Journal of Tuesday contains several col
umns of names of Lincoln citizens who
signed the various saloon petitions in
that city. The list is printed as an ad
vertisement, and the purpose of printing
the list is to intimidate those who have
signed. We say that is the purpose.
Men sign such petitions well knowing
what they do. They have a legal right
to sign such petitions. Is the State
Journal seeking to intimate anyone?
What a christian spirit! If you don't
come our way, we'll get after you in
some other way. We'll seek to humil-
iate you and your family, if you have
one. We'll get after your business and
ruin you if we can. That is the purpose
hoped to be attained. The fact that it
will fail in the end makes the attempt
none the less shameful.
The recent announcement of Hon. G.
W.Berge, that he will be a candidate for
governor subject to primaries of the
democratic and populist parties, was ex
pected. Mr. Berge made a magnificent
race in 1904 and with such a showing
he feels that he has a reason to believe
himself a strong candidate. Personally,
we entertain a very high opinion of Mr.
Berge, but we do not believe that he
will demanded for the gubernatorial race
this year. Hastings Democrat. Neither
do we believe that Shallenberger or
Dahlman will be demanded. The proper
candidate fo"r the democrats this year is
the present mayor of Lincoln, Frank W.
Brown. If he is nominated he" wilPbe
elected as sure as election day rolls
Our friend Huckins, of the Lincoln
Herald, replies to theJournal's article of
a few days since in reference to the es
tablishment of a democratic daily paper
inLincoln,and in a way throws cold water
on the proposition. We have not
bunch of coin to invest in such an enter
prise, but if we did have we would jump
at the proposition of establishing such
a paper at the state capital, believing
that such an enterprise would, from the
start, receive a living support. The
writer has established a large number
of papers in his career and knows what
it takes to do so grit and energy,
We still cling to- the ' idea that if the
proper effort is made, and it is not going
to take any such amount of coin as the
Herald intimates it will, and the demo
crats of the state see that it is controlled
by men who possess the ability and
the hustling qualities, they will rally to
its support in such a way as to make it
A NOBLE LADY
Mrs. J. M. Stone Died at Her
Home in Nehawka Satur
The Journal is pained to chronicle the
death of one of the best of mothers,
most dutiful and loving wives and best
of neighbors in the person of Mrs. J. M.
Stone of Nehawka, who passed away at
the home of the family in that place on
Saturday evening last. Mrs. Stone had
been ailing for some weeks, and had
been under the direct carejof a physi
cian most of the time of her illness, and
her death at this time was unlooked for
and was occasioned from heart failure.
Her husband, Mr. J. M. Stone, is one of
the best known men in Cass ;county,
while she also is survived by five child
renone daughter and four sons L. E.,
who is a banker in Cherokee, Okla. ; Mr?.
Katie West, wife of D. C. West, cashu r
of the Nehawka bank; Charles S., late
cashier of Murray State bank, and
Bruce and Carl, farmers near Nehawka.
Her death is a terrible blow to husband.
daughter -and sons, who have the sin
cere sympathy of the Journal. To the
community her sudden death will also
be keenly felt, as she was loved and
most highly respected by all who knew
her. The many friends of the family
extend to them their deepest sympathy
in this, the hour of their very saddest
The New Styles.
A millinery salesman was in town
the other day and kindly allowed the
agricultural editor of the Journal to
take a look at the new styles. His re
port was like this: The new styles will
be fully as pleasing as those of last
year. The principal change noticed
was that the front porch had been
enlarged and an upper deck added to
the roof. In many instances they will
run in three story effects with the roof
garden rich in foliage and evergreen.
The bay window has been moved from
the front to the left side, while the
chimney has been done Gothic instead
of Grecian design. There will be a
lister furrow across the rear garden.
Owing to the fact that no new colors
have been discovered recently there
will be no change in this particular;
although an effort will be made to get
at least a dozen different shades on
each hat. The eave trough will sag
over the left eye. Owing to the finan
cial flurry the price will be from one to
nine cents lower. This is supposed to
be the latest accurate information on
the new styles.

Never Without Peruna
There Are a Multitude of. People in

Who Have Been Restored to Health
By the Use of Pe-ru-na.
There are a multitude erf people la the United
States who have been restored to health by the use
of Peruna, There Is no use trying to deny this fact.
As a rule, doctors dislike to admit ft. There la now
and then a courageous-doctor who does admit it, how
ever. In such cases Peruna is prescribed by the
doctor himself. Even though the doctor suffers
pecuniary loss by such a transaction his patient Is
benefited, which ought to be the doctor's chief
We do not claim that doctors generally prescribe
Peruna. But we do claim whenever Peruna is in
telligently prescribed it rarely disappoints either
the doctor or patient.

my stomach, which troubled me most in the morning. My
appetite waa poor, and I did not seem to relish my food. Indi
gestion bothered me at tiroes, aleo. I was advised to take Peruna,
and I took it as prescribed for a moath when my cure was
almost complete. Today there is not a traoe of catarrh in my
system, and I can say withot hesitation that Peruna cured roe."
Mr. Samuel A. Paxfcon, 1118 Troost Ae., Kansas City, Mo.,

I am a well man today, thanks to your splendid medicine, Peruna.
I was troubled with catarrh and kidney disease of long standing
when I first began using Peruna. I soon found I was getting better,
and continued taking it for four months. It cleaned out the system,
leaving me well and strong and feeling better than I have in years."
