Those republican senators who have stood by the people
in voting on the Aldrieh tariff bill deserve ju't as much
praise from democrats as members of their own party who
have fought for the interests of the common people so man
fully. Theyhould remembei that ''Honor and shame from no

TAFT'S DEMOCRATIC-PLATFORM MESSAGE.
(New York World.)
In recommending to congress the submission of a eontitu
tiouiil amendment expressly authorizing the collection of an in
come tax Mr. Taft lias turned his back on his own record and
planted himself squarely on the democratic platform of 1008.
At the Denver convention, July 10, last, the democratic
party made this declaration:
We favor income tax as part of our revenue system
and we urge the submission nf a constitutional
amendment specifically authorizing congress to
levy and collect a tax upon individual and incorporate
incomes, to the end that wealth may bear its propor
tionate share of the burden of the federal government.
The Republican convention at Chicago in its platform
v-.s silent on this subject, but in his speech of acceptanco
at Cincinnati, July 28, Mr. Taft volunteered this state
The 'democratic platform demands two constitutional
amendments one providing for an income tax and the
other for the election of senators by the people. In
my judgment an amendment to the constitution for
an income tax is not necessary. I believe that an in
come tax, when the protective system om custom and
the internal revenue tax shall not furnish income
enough for governmental needs, can and should be
devised which under the decision of the supreme court
will conform to the constitution.
,oi,m7axly n?'rir ,,.t'fr(1' in a S1,m'h nt Clumlu, 0., August
uU, 11)07, Mr1 alt said:
In times of great national need, however, an income
tax would be of great assistance in furnishing means to
carry on the government, and it is not free from doubt
how the supreme court, with changed membership,
would view a new income tax law under such condi
tions. The court was nearly evenlv divided in the
ast case, and during the civil war great sums were col
lected by an income tax without judicial interference,
' and it was then supposed within the federal power
Whenever the government revenues need an
increase or readjustment I should strongly favor a
graduate inheritance tax and, if necessary for the
revenues, a change in the constitution authorizing a
lederal income tax, with nil the incidental influence
of both measures to lessen the motive for accumula-
."Without knowing all of Mr. Tuft's more recent reasons
jor oouciing mat a constitutional amendment is now neces
sary when it was not necessary eleven months ago, it is evi
dent that Mr. Aldrieh feels greatly relieved by the prcsi
dent's message. In siite of the finance
lion, the passage of an income tax provision bv democratic
mm j'icgiessive repuniican votes nail seemed imminent. Mr
Aldrieh had fought against adding nnv special taxes. At Mr

lions as the easiest way out of his difficulties. To stave off

and senate to make the new tariff duties so high that thev wil
not produce adequate revenues, lie despairs r an agree

in its bill. As a substitute the tax on corporation net earn

NATIONAL BISCUIT COMPANY
A duty that Is becoming more
lear and Imperative with every vote
on the tariff bill la looming up be
fore President Taft. He was elect
ed on a platform that specifically
demanded tariff revision and re
sponds to the demand of the plat
form he called a special session to
redeem Its cardinal pledge. That
session has not only repudiated that
pledge but It has made the condi
tions complained of, If anything,
worse than they were before. Pres
ident Taft is not responsible for the
transgressions of Congress but he
certainly will share in thnt responsi
bility If ho approves of the trans
gressions by his official signature.
The Aldrieh bill Is certainly an act
of "perlldity and dishonor" and it Is
up to the president to see thnt the
act Is not consumated Central City
drink and be merry." Aldrieh in
dignately said: "I am responsible to
by constituents alone." He need have
no consern for the needs of the party
at large. Provided Rhode Island
Btays republlean, what matters it If
Illinois or Iowa be lost? Aldrieh is
not asking cither of the latter
states to keep him in the senate.
Hut there is one man who is bound
to take notice that the country is
somewhat larger than Rhode Island, J
and whose duty it is to consider the i
interests of the whol.; people. He is
the president of tho United States. !
Heavy on the Taviiavers. I
A special from Lincoln, where the!
saloons are cut out, says: "The I
board of education of the Lincoln
hoola la considering the best means
to meet a heavy deficit in finances
due to the unexpected passing of the
rohibition rule in this city. The
cutting out of the saloons left the
board without $40, 500 that had been
counted on to finish the school year.
There was at the beginning of the
year a deficit of $2S0.00 coming
from cutting down the number of
saloons a year ago from 42 to 27,
and leaving the levy low. The county
has not collected the 90 per cent
which according to the law the board
may figure on. Thus It Is expected
that the deficit may reach $80,000.
Last year a levy of 19 Va mills was
made. The law says cities of the
first class of the size of Lincoln may
levy $150,000 for school purposes
Under a ruling of the state superin
tendent the board Is going to disre
gard this provision and levy the full
23 mills that- Is allowed under the

Paroled With Parents.
In the case of Albert Schwartz
arrested yesterday for having raised
a check given him by Luke Wiles,
County Judge Beeson this afternoon
paroled the young man in the cus
tody of his parents, pending the fil
ing of charges against him. Mr.
and Mrs. Schwartz with Deputy
Sheriff Manspeaker and the boy ap
peared before Judge Beeson who
stated to them that there was no com
plaint on file against the boy yet
and that lie understood there would
be none until the return of County
Attorney Ramsey who is in Texas at
present. Under the circumstances he
felt that he would not allow the boy
to remain in jail but he hg vised the
father to see the Sheriff this even
ing and have himself sworn in as a
special deputy sheriff. Sheriff Quin-
ton is out of the city today but will
arrive home this evening, as soon as
Mr. Schwartz is sworn in the bov is
to be placed in . his custody there
to remain subject to the orders of
the County Judge. He stated It was
either do this or to let the dot
out on bonds which he did not feel
disposed to do.
The boy was then released in the
custody of his parents. Judge B. S.
Ramsey, this morning stated to a
Journal reporter that he had been
looking after the case only In a sense
tor his son the County Attorney who
was In Texas at present. He exDected
him home tomorrow and for this
reason he had not filed any comnlalnt
against the young man. He stated
that Mr. and Mrs. Schwartz and the
boy had been at his office yesterday
when the matter as to what nunish.
rnent should be given the boy was
discussed and he had advised the par
ents that they would bo doing the
boy only Justice and learn him a
good lesson to let the law take Its
course. He expected a charco nt
forgery would be filed against the
boy as it was the second offense of
the kind he had committed. The
boy had stated that he expected to
go to the reform school for what
he had done, seeming to Indicate
that someone had given him advice
upon the matter before it had taken
Place. He also stated that the sum
he obtained upon the check had been
turned over to his pnrents with the
Moeptlon of a small amount 1 ess
than one dollar which he had spent.
Me advanced no reason for raising
the check save that lie wanted the
money and stated that after he had
passed the check he spent the money
he wanted and then paid his par
ents something over eleven dollars
out of the proceeds. Tho father
stated he did not give the amount
much attention thought ho thought
the boy was doing very well for
the time ho had been nt work.
It Is likely n complaint will be
filed against him as soon ns County
Attorney Ramsey arrives home anil

the Immediate future. In the mean

Damaging the Cables.
Mr. DeFord, of the Nebraska City

News office last evening a large sec

company, which was cut out by the
squirrels. The company has experi
enced a great deal of trouble from
this thing alone and yesterday and
today had a large force at work
repairing the damages done. They
had to cut out large sections of the
cables and dry the wires and then put
a hood over the breaks. Permission
was asked of Mayor Jackson to kill
these litle pests.but he said that he
could do nothing for them. The men
have concluded that they have a
right to protect their property and

have been doing great damage of

nuisance and destrop property, as
they have done In this city and
