Remember the primary election Tues day, September 1. Be sure that you come out and vote. Every democrat should do so. The final failure of the Rosewater plan for controlling Nebraska leaves an able "amateur" nothing but this good name to keep him from being in bad odor. St. Louis Republic. With the chairman of the New York Democratic State Committee as author ity for the claim that it is all over but the shouting in sweeping the State like a whislwind, the mixture of metaphor helps to show the vigor with which the shouting has already begun. The third nomination of Governor Johnson of Minnesota, by the democrats and his acceptance, opens the way for great possibilities in the gopher state. Should Johnson carry Minnesota for Bryan this year as well as for himself, he must be the party's choice in 1912. The democrats of Cass County have far and away the best candidate for County Attorney before the people. A vote for Biliy Ramsey is a vote for a strong, able and fearless county attor ney, and a recognition of a bright young man who is inevitably bound to fill the olfiee with honor to himself and his con stituents. The democratic primaries are held September 1st. Make all your arrange ments to attend and vote for your favor ite candidates. The choice of a gover nor is a matter of vital importance in thisstite r.nd every vote should be cast for some one of the three candidates either Shallenberger Dahlman or Berge. C. N. Seybeut, democratic candidate for county commissioner, is a good man, well fitted for the position and deserves to have every democrat speak a good word for him. Get out and give him a rousing send off and see to it that all your friends cast a vote for Seybert. The frantic efforts of the reaction aries to get under the mantle of Roose velt is amusing. At heart everyone of these men is bitterly opposed to every thing Roosevelt represents and there is no chance of their ever enacting his views, when they are progressive, upon any subject. Roosevelt's reactionary views meet their approval but they go no farther. Any man who favors Speaker Cannon is against Roosevelt. The announcement of the New York World that it is now for Bryan means much. While surrendering none of Mr. Pulitzer's well known views it considers that the crisis in the nation demands the election of Mr. Bryan and wisely drops it's personal feelings in an effort to do something to avert the disaster which continued misrule threatens. It also means that New YorK is lining up strongly for Bryan and that the Empire state means to regain its prestige as a great democratic state in the coming election. Eight national banks in Oklahoma have announced that they will denation alize and become state banks to enable them to take advantage of the state banking guarantee law. The comptrol ler of currency has notified all nation ional banks in Oklahoma that they must not operate under this law. One national bank has announced that it will organize a savings bank under the guaranty law, thereby enjoying the prestige of both a national and a state bank. In Illinois the prospects for a great democratic victory seem overwhelming. From every portion of the state comes reports of republican dissatisfaction and democratic unity. Former vice-president Stevenson, the democratic candi date for governor, is especially opti mistic. He considers the state safe for Bryan and himself by a large majority as he has had assurances from every quarter of great support by the inde- t pendent and laboring portion of the voters. And what is true in Illinois is true in every other middle state. It is a democratic year and the election of Bryan and Kern seems more probable everyday. . With the Democrats, the laboring men and the Methodists against him, Mr. Taft is making desperate efforts to keep his fences in repair. The pro tected interests and the negroes are about all he has left, and he is not very sure of the negroes. Govenor Johnson of Minnesota is not a sulker. Personally, he would have preferred a rest from politics, but his party called him, and he will be found in the front rank battling for Democracy from now till November. You have a choice for governor and perhaps a choice for other officials. Nearly all democrats have. We also have two candidates for congress. They are both good men. Now it is the duty of every democrat to go the polls on Tuesday, September 1, and vote for one or the other of these gentlemen for congress, as well as for his preference for other candidates for state offices. Don't fail to do so. The Union Ledger has this to say concerning the address delivered at the Old Settlers' Reunion by our Billy Ram sey, democratic candidate for County Attorney: "Attorney William C. Ram sey, of Plattsmouth, delivered a very interesting and scholarly address of 40 minutes, dealing principally with early settlement, and tracing the county's progress to the present time. Mr. Ram sey's address was highly appreciated and received merited applause." Every democrat should turn out and vote at the primary Tuesday, September 1. Only a few days distant. You may think it is not necessary, but right there is where you are mistaken it is neces sary. As between Shallenberger, Berge or Dahlman, you have a choice for Gov ernor. Go and vote for the one you think will be the strongest at the elec tion in November. Don't stay away and then kick because your favorite was not nominated. The mayor of South Bend, Ind., a manufacturing city that is always re publican in politics, is a democrat. Great distress came to unemployed la boring men in South Bend, following the Roosevelt panic. The mryor, when he found that many were in want, established soup houses in the city, which greatly relieved them. When he appealed to the city council to foot the bill, they refused, and the mayor pcid the expense out of his own pocket. Tr.is is an object lesson at South Bend, and it is freely predicted on every hand that;the city will be democratic this fall. The action of the Oklahoma Nation al banks in cancelling their national charters and taking out state charters so as to secure the benefit of the guar antee deposit law. is highly significant. It means that they have realized the immense benefits the banks obtain from the law's operation. The law has serv ed to insure public confidence in the sta bility of the banks, and serves to pro tect the banks from foolish and needless runs. This is where it benefits the banks. It benefits the depositor by giv ing him the security of the state behind his money an impregnable fortress of security. The democratic party pro poses to enact a law that all national banks shall give the people the same guarantee with the additional security of national strength behind it. The primary law, for the direct nom ination of the candidates of all parties, will be given its first thorough test in Nebraska this fall. Only about two weeks remain till primary election day, when the nominations will be 'mads. This law reposes the entire power di rectly in the hands of the people, from whom all political power springs. Like all vast power it carries with it a great responsibility. - The great responsibil ity of making wise and good nomina tions can no longer be delegated to con ventions and to experinced and deeply interested leaders, a3 before. The peo le must bear it themselves. Every member of each party should be awake to his personal interest and his personal duty. He should carefully study the list of candidates before the primary of his party and strive to make an in telligent choice. He should realize ful ly the undoubted fact that, on judicious action on the primary day, will in large measure depend the outcome on elec tion day. - - Call Omaha over the Independent telephone. Lack of employment is said to be ; causing many men in the East to de 1 Bert their families. And it is causing a great many more to desert the Re publican party. There are two democratic candidates for congress before the primary Tues- j day, September 1 John A. Maguire of Lincoln, and Dr. A. P. Fitzsimmons of Tecumseh. Both are good men, and either woald be an improvement over the present supporter of Czar Cannon for Speaker. In the primary election on Tuesday, September 1, there is but one candidate to vote for each office on the democratic ticket, while there are three candidates for Governor Berge, Shallenberger and Dahlman, As between the three you evidently have a choice. Then go to polls and vote for him. It is your duty to do so. If you think Shallenberger would make the best Governor go to the polls next Tuesday, September 1, and vote for him. If you believe Berge is the best man vote for him; or, if you think Dahlman is the proper man for the place vote for him. By all means turn out and vote for the one you think can command the most votes at the general election on November 3. The full dinner pail will not have such a conspicuous place in Republican parades this year as it had in 1896. The reason is that it isn't over half full and what little the laborer nas in it costs about one-third more than in 1896, yet when the pay check comes around it has the same old figures written on its face, and in many instances considerably less. The full dinner pail i3 no longer a Republican political asset. The Kansas City Star, republican, urges the election of a democratic congress and says with Taft's election a democratic house would give better support to his policies than a republi can house. The Star bases its opinion upon the fact that the continued reign of Cannon would prevent all reform legislation, as it was able to control the Chicago convention and turn down Roosevelt's policies. The Star should go a step farther and admit that the election of Bryan and a democratic congress is the only way to insure a continuance of Roosevelt policies and the adoption of remedial reform legis lation. Nebraska City News. The difference between Mr. Taft's promise of tariff revision and Mr. Bry an's pledges in the same direction is that Mr. Taft. if elected, will be in po sition to redeem his pledge, while Mr. Bryan, if elected, would be powerless to accomplish anything with a republican senate arrayed against his free trade plans. Omaha Bee. This is an ac knowledgement that if Mr. Bryan is elected, the pledges he makes to the people cannot be carried out because the Republican House of Lords, con trolled by the corporations, do not in tend to carry out the wishes of the peo ple, even if instructed to do so by the election of Mr. Bryan. Talk about your "government of, for and by the peo ple" with the republican party in pow er! The people are tired of such deceit, and such papers as the Bee will wake up the morning after the election to find out this fact. The Tariff as Tree Destroyer. Canadian lumbermen are discussing the reduction of their cut next winter from 50 to 70 per cent on account of American competion, which, they claim, has involved a loss of $700,000. The American lumber enters Canada free, and is sold at reduced prices for much less than it sells at home. This in spite of the fact that lumber is scarce in the United States and growing scarcer at an appalling rate. The American tariff on lumber is $2 per 1,000 feet. This enables the dealers to maintain a high price at home, keep out foreign lumber, and to dump lumber into Canada at prices cheaper than in this country. The tariff on lumber in this country does not "protect American forests," and was not expected to do s . It does not protect the consumer. It does en able the dealer to make an undue profit.
