Isn't it a mistake to suppose that
any one class of men can hand together
to oppose others without musing those
others to band themselves likewise?
Till-: campaign in Nebraska bids fair
to he a warm one this year, hut when
it in over it will he. found the big ma
jority are for Bryan and Kern.
It is reported that the Lincoln post
office is sending out republican cam
paign literature under the official frank
of the United States government.
What do you think of that?
Jl'itf.K Taft and the president are re
ported to he very much wrought up
over the decision of the court of appeals
in the standard oil case. Well they
may he for it spells sure defeat for the
rotund aspirant for presidential honors.
The whole trust question seems to
have been torn open again by the de
cision of the court of appeals in revers
ing Judge Land is' oil trust decision. It
seems to be demonstrated that we do
not have laws effectual enough yet to
reach the offenders.
Cass county democrats will present a
strong, intelligent ticket to the voters
this fall for endorsement, and there is
every prospect it will succeed. All that
is needed to make this prospect a sure
go is for the democrats to get busy and
explain the ticket's merits. It will
have plenty of merit.
The republican claims of enormous
successes in the south must be taken as
such claims usually are. There is no
prospect of the south going republican
in this year when the country over is
teeming with protests against further
republican misrule. The west, south
and east alike are democratic this year.
The thiee big democratic aspirants
for governor will soon be at it hammer
and tongs. It must be Shallerd.erger,
I Serge or Dahlman, and the besl man
will be chosen. No matter whom it is,
the democracy must rally to his stan
dard and not only carry Nebraska i r
B:-yan, but for the gubernatorial candi
date. It is easy done this year.
As the day draws near for the closing
and fdings for offices to be filled this
fall, many good men are mentioned.
The Journal believes it the duty of
democrats the county ov er to give care
ful consideration to the names present
ed them and selected those best qualifi
ed. This done and a vigorous cam
paign made, means victory in Novem
ber. The high tariff is to be made higher
if the republicans prevail in the coming
election and the country is to have the
spectacle of more multi-millionaire made
by law while the section hand and plat
form laborer will have to be content to
get thirteen cents an hour as usual.
A high tariff to protect labor would be
of more benefit than all these tariffs to
protect manufacturer and capitalist.
Compare with your neighbor the
democratic and republican national plat
forms. It will be interesting literature
to while away a few hours and they
will be the best hours you have spent
in many a day. The democratic plat
form is simple and easy to understand.
You may find the republican platform
more difficult to understand and you
will readily detect that it is misleading
and means but little other than for
The lighting company informs the
Journal that the reason they did not
put the paving on Sixth street back as
it previously was, when they finished
relaying the pipes along that thorough
fare was because the pavement would
soon be torn up again for relaying and
they did not consider the work neces
sary or desirable. This explanation is
sufficient, but it is to be hoped no streets
which have been permanently paved
will be left in the condition that street
is. The Journal docs not desire to do
the company injustice but the people of
this city are entitled to know the com
pany's intention in such matters.
Ti!K Red :i i ! Chief, a republican
paper nigh onto J') years, has changed
and will now advocate democratic
principles. They are corning, one by ;
There is one c hange in principles in
the republican party in the past twelve
years. In 18'.;; they bowed "honest
money." In 1908 they are howling for
dishonest money for campaign pur
poses. Tiikkk is not a democratic paper in
the land that is not supporting Bryan
and Kern. Those that oppose this
ticket are not democratic publications
and have not supported a democratic
national ticket since 1892. Then what
is the use of paying any attention as to
such papers say.
No matter why thousands of men
were suddenly thrown out of work, it
was a bad thing for all concerned.
When thousands are being put back to
work it is a good thing for all con
cerned, no matter why it is done. If
there is politics in it at any point,
politics of the same kind should be ex
tended to all points as soon as possible.
One cf the big graft melons that the
republian state administration cuts for
a few of its county republican papers is
the $15000 distributed the papers for
juinting the notices of the constitu
tional amendments. The last four re
publican legislatures have fed to its
press over $50,000 in this way, and we
do not remember that any amendment
If there are any democrats who do
not approve the ticket named and the
platform adopted at Denver it is their
duty as good citizens not to vote for
the ticket nor to support the platform.
But 99 per cent of the democrats are
perfectly satisfied with both. The
chances are that ten republicans wiii
vote for Bryan for every democrat who
votes for Taft.
In this issue's Journal appears the
announcement of Dr. A. P. Fitzsimmon:--,
of Tecumseh, as a candidate for con
gress, subject to the decision of the
democrats of the First district at the
gei t r .1 primary election. The platform
ipon which Dr. Fitzsimmons stands is

wise procedure. Dr. P. L. Hall, of Lin

Both are successful men, Dr. Hall be

deep wisdom. Both are thoroughly de

What way does this straw show the
wind blows? In New York at a meet
ing of the Central Federated union
there were 82 delegates present. Of
the entire number of delegates there
was only one that said he would vote
for Taft and 53 declared themselves
for Bryan, 11 for Debs, 1 for the Inde
pendence league candidate and 16 were
noncommittal, but two-thirds of them
showed a strong leaning toward Bryan.
They will either join the democratic or
socialist party. Nearly all were form
There should be but few, if any,
bank depositors against the democratic
platform. The guarantee of bank
deposits helps the pocketbook of every
farmer because it assures to him that
when he deposits his money in a bank
he is sure that it will all come back to
him dollar for dollar. Not only the
bank but the government guarantees
it to him. The democratic platform
specifically pledges the party to enact
"legislation under which the national
banks shall be required to establish a
guarantee fund for the prompt pay
ment of the depositors of any insol
vent national bank under an equitable
system which shall be available to all
state banking institutions wishing to
use it." The republican platform is
absolutely silent and offers you nothing
n thi3 respect.
