When the. time comes that the United
States Senators are elected by a direct
vote of the people, then and until then,
can the common people expect relief.
Tin: Indiana legislature being demo-
crtaic.it owes one duty to the late dem
ocratic candidate for vice-president-
John W. Kern, and that is to elect him
to the U. S. Senate from the Hoosier
It is pretty hard to jump from poli
tics into non-political news, but it has
to be done. Everybody is glad that the
struggle is over, even if it didn't go
the right way. What can not be cured
must be endured.
C. W. Pool., editor of the Tecumseh
Tribunal, who was elected as float rep
resentative from Johnson and Nemaha
counties, has been announced as a can
didate for speaker of the house. Char
ley is a splendid gentleman, and will fil
the position very creditably.

to the city's past experience with tins
gentleman. At the commencement
of the last ice season he appeared In
the city with a proposal to furnish
our city with ice at a stated rate
below that which the local dealer
proposed to sell it. Apparently he
was as much in good faith then as
lie is now and the result was ': that
our people,' seeing' relief from exhor

covered that his bargain was bad or
for some other cause which he has
never fully explained. he- arbitrarily
cancelled his contracts and withdrew
from the field just at a time when
his services were most needed,
leaving our people dependent upon

The republicans of Nebraska are go
ing to extremes in their lamentations
over the defeat of Governor Sheldon.
There has been many as good men as
George Sheldon defeated, and nothing
thought of it. The officeholders who
will .have to vamoose are the ones who
do the most lamenting, and then the
graft organ, the State Journal, comes
in for a share of grief..
FROM THK MANUFACTURER TO TIIK COXSUMI-R
A prohibitionist declared on the
the one ice dealer of the city and com-j streets last Monday that he never
nelled to hiiv from him at his own i knew a place where there were so

Revised returns make it probable
that a portion of the republican state
is elected. The republicans, ever since
187G, have proved better counters than
the democrats. This was the year they
swindled Samuel J . Tilden out of the
Ik we cannot have William J." Bryari
for president, it is not altogether im
probable that we can have , him for
United States Senator. He would
prove a great service to the common
people in that body of millionaires, who
have bought their way with gold.
While the republicans of Missouri
carried the state for Taft by a small
majority and elected Hadley for gov
ernor, the democrats elected the bal
ance of the state ticket ar.d a majority
of the legislature. This insures the re
turn of W.J. Stone to the United States

There evidently was one plank in
the national democratic platform that
was right, even according to that ram
pant, radical sheet, the Kansas City
Star, and that is the election of U. S.
Senators by a direct vote of the people.
Here is what that paper says: "The
platform of the defeated party declared
for the election of United States Sena
tors by the direct vote of the people
and the platform of the victorious party
was silent on that subject. But this
does not mean that the issue is either
unattractive or dead. For it is an is
sue, and the Democratic party has
taken the right stand on it. And if it
were possible to put this question to a
vote of the country it would carry by
an overwhelming majority. Also, if
the United States Senate were not con
vinced that this is true it would not
have refused repeatedly to submit to
the people a constitutional amendment
making this provision."
recommendation for a man who is
asking' a twenty-five year franchise
from this people.
Again, twenty-five years is a long
time to look into the future. Look
ing back at the past, twenty-five
years has seen many lines of indus
try revolutionized and there is little
reason to suppose that the coming
twenty-live years will be any .be
hind. Improvement and progress is
the'erder of the age and new methods
and new ideas are making light
cheaper every day. The Journal be
lieves in progress and .hopes to see
the time come when the city will get

Aside from the question of giving

some oppose for different reasons,
the franchise and contract, if auy be
made, should be given to those whe
