"Mr. Takt's weight has not yet made him bow legged, " remarks an ex change. No, but his efTorts to stand on the republican platform soon will. The republican politicians are making a desperate efliort to hold the "nigger" vote in line. As the democratic party is not appealing to the "nigger" vote, that's one desperate effort that should be successful. And now the republican newspapers and politicians are angry because Bryan insists upon sticking to the Denver platform. This is but natural even William II. Taft wouldn't dare to stick to the one at Washington and ratified at Chicago. A well, known traveling man of Lin coin says he knows who demolished the Taft banner in that city, and that it wasn't a democrat either. When the proper time arrives the perpetrator will be hauled upon the carpet. Then you will see Billy Hayward tuck his tail like a whipped puppy. The chairman of the republican na tional committee is eminently correct in aiirmise that plenty of work awaits him in "the country west of theMissouri." Presently he will admit the necessity of pulling of his coat and rolling up his sleeves in all the country between the Missouri and the Alleghenies. The man who injects politics into re ig'on or religion into politics oes it because the Almighty made a mistake in his creation. Religion is a matter of individual conscience. If it is not we do not believe the Maker would have permitted the invention of so many dif ferent brands. Publicity of campaign funds before tie election isthekindof publicity that the country wants not publicity after the election. The kind of publicity promised by the Taft managers is the same as the "tariff reform" which it has pledged. The people of the United States take no stock in promises of posthumous performances. Although Treasurer Sheldcn r as not yet made it public, it is reported that Rockefeller has given his check for $1,000,000, and the Standard Oil directors have ordered $2,000,000, to be paid to the campaign fund. It is, of course, understood that the suit for the $40,000,000 fines will be drooped. By announcing that contributions will not be recieved from corporations, and that contributions from other sources will be limited to a reasonable maxium, the democratic nationl com mittee has gone far toward removing politics from commercialism. It only remains for the democratic voters to the reform a complete success by giv ing their financial support to the com mittee in the stand it has taken. Queer how little it takes to offend some people. A couple at Weeping Water became very indignant and pub lished a notice that postal cards with Bryan & Kern's picture, with the pro phecy that they would be the success ful candidates, were objectionable. Now we are making a collection of postals and will be glad to receive those of Taft and Sherman, and will rot get mad if we get some of Tom Watson or the Prohibition candidate. Nehawka Register. Mr. Bryan is appealing to farmers for campaign funds. But it is some thing of a task, when the farmers are receiving 80 cents for corn and fancy prices for cattle; when they are in bet ter condition than they ever were be fore, with prospects for an even greater measure of prosperity, to induce them to give money to help put the demo cratic party in power. Lincoln Star. Such tommyrot sounds "fishy" to the intelligent farmer. The idea of taking the cvdit for prosperity out of the han f m kind Providence, beats any thing we ever heard of. Put the lead ers of the republican party are prepared to tae anything. But they have fooled the farmers of this country just or.ee too ' i vi'.h l! eir l.oos prosperity cry Here's another difference between Bryan and Taft. Bryan neither wrote the democratic platform, nor had a j president to write it for him, but he is able to stand on it without inconsistency or embarrassment. Taft's platform dictated for him by his master and in standing upon it he can neither escape inconsistency nor avoid embarrassment. If it were left to the common people Bryan would win the presidency hands down. But the corporate 'influences, with their untold wealth, will fight him to a finish. And in their fight they will have the help of the people who will not know where the next meal is to come from on account of the high price of the ordinary necessities of life. A man deserves what he stands for. It seems that prominent republicans throughout the country are jumping into the Bryan band-wagon every day in the week. The latest addition is Frank S. Monnett, former attorney gen eral of Ohio, who conducted the prose cutions in that state against the Stand ard Oil company, and later was employ ed by the interstate commerce commis sion. It looks rather squally for Fatty Taft, even in his own state. In John W. Kern the democratic party has nominated a man who warn ed the delegates beforehand what he h3d "no barrel" and that he wouldn't ask any of his rich friends to contribute. Kern is neither rich nor poor; he's just a plain, every day democrat in whom those who know him best have the most confidence. And that's why the convention went to Indiana for its sec ond man. A correspondent writes to know whether Grover is president again. He says when the price of wool went down under Grover's administration the re publican papers and orators stated that it was due to Grover and low tariff, and as the price of wool is now about half less than it was last year and the tariff the highest in the history of the country, Grover must be president again. No; Grover isn't president, but the people can see that political chickens will come home to roost. The low price of wool is the proof. As usual, Editor Rosewater, of the Omaha Bee, displays his smallness of caliber by intimating that the Taft ban ner was cut down in Lincoln by a dem ocrat. If little Vicy thinks he can make the people believe there are democrats in such small business he is badly mis t iken. The rank and file of republicans in Lincoln know better, and are inclined to lay the dastardly act at the door of some of the members of the state com mittee. The secretary of that commit tee no doubt will get out of it if he has to wait "until the statutes of limita tion" have taken their run. Since 1S97 the Republicans have been in absolute control of the presidency and both branches of congress. Why did they not enact the legislation they now promise in the Chicago platform? Popular clamor has driven them to mak ing promises to the people, but the character of the men they nominated at Chicago gives not even the hope that they will carry them out. Upon assum ing the presidency Roosevelt promised to carry out McKinley's policies, but le went squarely back on them. So will Taft and Sherman go back on the promises made in the Chicago platform. They will say platforms are made to get off of after the election. Absolute safety in promise lies in the election of Bryan. In perusing the last issue of the Elm wood Leader-Echo, one would naturally judge that it was a great reform jour nal. Now, we would suggest to the ed itor of that paper that, as he has gone into the reformation and "flood" busi ness on the county option question, he bestow a small portion of his reform ideas in another direction. And a re-" formation that is calculated to fill instead of lightening the pocket-book a great deal more than taking a drink of whis key or glass of beer occasionally, and, criminally speaking, a far greater evil, according to the laws of Nebraska. And while in the reformation business, we would suggest that he procure a brand new broom and sweep his own djor yard before jumping on his neighbors. The Journal is prepared to recite some incidents in the career of this great re former that might cause him to become sick to the stomach if made public.

Henry Schneider returned to the city last night from the Elk's convention at Dallas, Texas. He is enthusiastic at the great success of the convention and loud in his praise of Dallas as a con vention city. The convention, trans acted much business of importance, adopting an emblem which will be copy righted, consisting of a clock with the hands pointing to the hour of 11, and surmounted with an elk's head with a star above a beautiful design. The next convention will be held in Los Angeles in 1909. While in the south Mr. Schneider, in company with Will Clement, visited Ft. Worth, going over on the interurban, which he praises highly for good ser vice, and Galveston, which struck his fancy as the finest city in the south. He and Mr. Clement made a Failing trip on the gulf, which he describes as highly exhilarating. Henry was also loud in his praise of the manner in which Dallas took care of the conven tion, there being excellent accommoda for all at reasonable rates. The crowds on Wednesday and Thursday were so great that traffic on the principal streets of the city was stopped, street cars being unable to proceed and the city being given over to a good time. There was tremendous noise, the crowds being the loudest ever heard. The parade of the Elk's was a very fine one, having eighteen bands in it and stretching out to a great length. There were many finely uniformed lodges represented, Austin, Tex., taking the prize for the neatest appearing body. The city was splendidly decor ated for the occasion and taken all in all it was a hummer. Mr. Schneider retnrned over the M. K. & T. Ry., which he praises highly for its service. Mr. R. W. Clement con tinued on to St. Louis, Mo. It Can't Be Beat The best of all teachers is experience. C. M.
