July, August Only two months to arrange the Merchants'
Carnival. Would it not be tin order for the Commercial Club
to bc-.?iu lirejiarations in earnest for this event. Two months
is a very short time to arrange for a successful carnival, and
we all want to make it a howlinir success. At its next n.eet
id'' the Commercial Club should arrange its committees.
A number of people are bejjinnins to ask what Taft called
congress together in special session for. Did he fondly imagine
that all lie had to do was to get them together and have that
revision he so confidently promised the people last fall! It
looks as if lie would have a veto on his hands if he wants
to "save his face" with the American people.
It will be almost two years before we elect a United States
Senator for Nebraska. The people virtually decide the ele
ction of a successor to I'urkett., Wonder if this isn't the rea
son. I'urkett is trying to carry water on both shoulders?
promised I'urkett theylfe is first with the tariff revisionists
and then over on Aldrieh'e side of the question. Maybe the
llhode Island boss has promised JJurkett they would help
him out in his contest for re-election or, rather the trusts
he rcprsents has. The people of Nebraska are getting a little
suspicious of timer's actions.
SLAYING THE INCOME TAX.
Loyal democrats who have been chagaiicd and humihf,
eii by the action of a number of democratic senators in lining
up, on several roll calls, with Aldrich on important votes,
will find consolation in the fact that without an exception
every democratic senator stood squarely for the income tax.
The income tax law was stabbed to death in the senate
Friday, but it was by republican hands. Not a single demo
crat but voted for it.
The motion to substitute the Taft-Aldrich corporation
tax for the I'ailey -Cummins income tax prevailed by a vote of
-lo ayes to 'M nays. livery one of the afiiimative votes was
cact by a republican. AA but seven of the negative votes were
cast by democrats. The seven republicans who voted with
the democrats to save the income tax law was Cummins and
Dolliver of Iowa. LaFlotte of Wisconsin, 1'ristow of Kansas,
1'orah of Idaho, Clapp of Minnesota and Bulkeley of Con
necticut. Once this vote was taken the income tax lay was dead
and buried. The question then recurred on the corporation
tax, not as a substitute but standing by itself. It was either
the corporations law oi nothing. On this final vote, therefore,
all of the democrats but three voted fur the corporation tax,
presumably on the theory that, bad as it is, it is bettor than a
tariff on consumption.
Nebraska people sh i 'd note that both their "progres
sive" senators, I'urkett ai.d I'rown, joined forces with Aid
rich and voted to substitet the corporation tax for the in
come tax. his in spite of the f -"t that at least DO per cent of the
people of this state favor the income tax, and that the Nebras
ka delegation voted for it in the republican convention at Chi
cago a year ago.
In this vote Rurkett and I'rown misrepresented and be
trayed Nebraska. They chose rather to serve Taft and Aldrich
than their own constituents. Aldrich and Taft may not for
get, perhaps, the favor rendered them by Nebraska's sen
idors. I nt neither, we believe, will the people of Nebraska
forget how they have been betrayed. World-Herald.

THE GUARANTY LAW.
The action of the federal judge in deciding certain sec
tions of the Nebraska guaranty law unconstitutional, is just
what those bankers wanted. They were lobbying viciously
against the law all last winter, and after the law was passed
they immediately began a program of attack to keep the law
from being enforced, and they succeeded, not through the
state courts, but through the decision of n federal judge. In
t pcaking of this attack upon the rights of the people of Ne
braska, the Center Signal, whose editor is Chris (Irsenther,
Secretary of State Democratic Committe reflects our senti
ments upon this action exactly:
It seems to us that these banks are playing an unfair and
exceedingly dangerous game. During the panic two years ago
the banks of the state pleaded with the depositors to exercise
patience and not withdraw their deposits from the banks.
The public was implored through the press and public utter
ances to stand by the banks in their hour of grief and not
withdraw any more cash from the bank vaults than was abso
lutely necessary for urgent business needs. The public heeded
these npp als and was exceedingly patient and considerate whli
the banks. They took clearing house certificates and other
skin plasters in lieu of the cash to which they were entitled.
The depositor in many cases suffered losses because h) was
.obliged to curtail his transactions for the reason that his funds
wore tied up in the banks, the people wer implored not to
board their money, but to leave it in the banks. The people
did this, although when the first statement was issued alter
the panic it showed that 4f per cent of all the deposits in the
Omaha banks was in cash. Thus it became known that, the
batiks th"'iisHves and not the public were guilty of hoarding
the peoples nsmey and keeping it out of circulation in times
of dire distress.
These same Omaha banks are now using the fifty-one
Mate banks- as catspaws to nullify the guaranty law, a law which
is admittedly just. A law which would prevent panics, be
nuso no man woum nonor uis monev n pavnieiu wen
guaranteed by law. . . . We don't know what the fi dera! courts
will do with the law, but one tiling is certain, that IF Till

THE SLEEPING SICKNESS
WHICH MEANS DEATH
How many readers have heard of tUs
terrible disease? It prevails In that
far-away country Africa especially
tho Congo district. It Is caused by
the bite of tho tsetae fly. When It
bites a person, the sleeping symptoms
begin and Anally the sufferer sleep
until death occurs.
Contrast this with the peaceful,
balmy sleep of health. Is there any
thing more wearing than to He awaka
at night, tossing about, nervous, with
cold feet, hot head and mercy knows
what else? Short of letting the Uetsa
fly bite us we would do almost any
thing for relief. How can w pre
vent It? Mr. Gtwge Hayes, of
Union City, Ta., writes: "I had lost
my appetite, was all run-down, could
not sleep nights. I had tried every
thing without relief. Vlnol was rec
ommended, and to my surprise, It
helped mo at once; gar me a splendid
pptlt, and now I sleep aoundly."
What Vlnol did for Mr. ITayes.lt wilt
do for every run-down, nervoua and
overworked person who cannot ileep.
