The standpatters met the steam
roller to perfection In the Republican
convention at Lincoln. They were
there with both feet.
In Ohio the machine Republican!
organization seems to be afraid to
nominate Mr. Garfield for governor,
and equally afraid not to.
Metcalfe found out at Grand Island
that the Democrats of Nebraska are
almost united on Congressman Hit
chcock for the United States senate.
Little Vlek Rosewater got beauti
fully sat down upon at the Lincoln
convention. He fared worse really
that Bryan did at Grand Island.
According to ex-Senator Allen the
Populist party drew its last breath
at Grand Island. He publicly an
nounced that henceforth he will bo
a full-fledged Democrat.
As the state Republican convention
was composed of standpatters, out
and out, and endorsed Taft and,Ald
rlch from the word go, it would be
a grand Idea for the managers of the
campaign to send for Old Joe Can

The Prohibitionists wero very cute
In getting control of what was term

Grand Island. When their scheme

things to suit themselves, and went

hibitionists are pursuing a desperate
course to carry out their plans. Put
they won't work with the people.
The Cass county delegates to the
Grand Inland convention are enthu
sed over the doings of the represen
tative Democrats of Nebraska. We
believe the convention did the proper
caper In refusing to endorse county
option, and believe the voters will
so decide at the general election.
Governor Shallonberger'g administra
tion was fully endorsed, and the pint
form adopted is one that rings with
the true sentiments of the peoplo.
TI1K XKXT SPEAKKi:.
The next speaker of the national
house of representatives will not be
Cunnun. Nor will he be Representa
tive Smith of Iowa, nor Payne of New
York, nor Dal.cll of Pennsylvania,
nor Tawney of Minnesota.
He may bo a Democrat, and It
would not be surprising If he should
be; but even If he Is a Republican,
lie wll not bo Cannon nor any of his
thief lieutenants who have been lead
ing the losing fight against the pro
gressives. It is not probable, of course, that
even If the next house should bo Re
publican, a. majority of tls Republi
can members will bo avowed pro
gressives. But the number of pro
gressives will bo Increased, and so
will be the number of Democrats.
The defiant regulars will get such
a drubbing between the midsummer
primaries and the fall elections that
the lesson will finally be pounded
home to the party leaders In general
that something Is going on some-
thing they have tried to kill with
bluff and sneer, with arrogance and
defiance, but have only stimulated
with greater energy by their flagrant
and fatuous servitude on behalf of
the special Interests.
Therefore, let no man who counts
himself a progressive Impair his use
fulness with perturbation over Can
non's defiant candidacy for re-election
to the speakership. Let him
rather rejoin. This avowed and early
candidacy helps to crystallize the
progressive movement. Cannon's
speeches have helped In the same di
rection. The picturesque veteran of
an obsolete system has exhibited him
self once too often. The people know
his day has passed.
No, the next speaker will not be
Cannon nor any other man of his
kind. He may not be one of the
leading progressives, but he will not
be one of the constructive exponents
of Cannoulsm. The square deal de
mands a new deal, and that new deal
will be given to the people by the
next congress In the election of a
speaker. Kansas City Star, Rep.
and if vi: lose:
The Star Is told by some of Sena
tor Burkett'a ardent followers that
this newspaper Is .making a battle
against the inevitable, for Senator
Burkett Is certain to be nominated
for re-election by the Republican par
ty. We are not so sure or that, but If
It proves true that the machine and
the postmasters own the party and
are able to secure the nomination for
Mr. Ilurkett yet will the Star bo satis
fied to go down to defeat since we
are certain that we are right, and
are expressing the mind of the great
majority of the party In the state.
If Mr. Burkett, notwithstanding
his senatorial record, Is nominated,
he can give thanks to the fortunate
circumstances that, as usual, have
come to bis aid, and to the postmast
ers of the state and the Republican
Truth Is mighty and will eventual
ly prevail. The attitude of the ma
Joiity In congress upon the great Is
sues of the tariff, the conservation
of national property and the other
Items uporf which the split has come
In the party w ill not long be endorsed
by the people. Unless the majority,
Including Mr. Burkett, change their
attitude the great Republican party
will go down to defeat at the polls.
- It Is not only for the right but for
the preservation of the Republican
party that this Insurgent movement
exists and that In a small way the
Star Is laboring.
Tens of thousands of voters will
leave the party If such men as now
control It continue In power.
If Mr. Burkett can be counted any
where or on any side he Is with these
mlsleaders. Lincoln Star, Rep.

In a spirit of sarcasm Will Hay
ward lias Included the following
clause In a circular letter he is send
ing out to the voters:
"In a lifo time spent among the
peoplo of the First district I have
never found It desirable to accept
tendered political appointments, eith
er state or national. In consoquence
of w hich I hnve no record of residence
In Washington as a government clerk
or otherwise, etc."
The clause Is an unfortunato one.
The records at Washington will show
that In 1000 Will llaywnrd drew pay
for eight or nine months as "secre
tary" to Senator M. L. Hayward, the
services alleged to have been per
formed In the year 1899.
The facts nre that Will Hayward
was never formally appointed to that
office, and never performed any serv
ices for which the pay was allowed.
Senator Hayward never went down to
Washington, aai never was sworn In)
The record cf Pollard In the "put
it ba k" case is better than Will Hay
ward's. Pollard was actually elected
before he commenced to draw that
muih discussed salary. State Capi
AND THIS IS "I'KOTKCTIOX."
Speaker Cannon attempts to justify
the increase In the rubber tariff on
the ground that it has increased the
In the nine months ended March
30, although the volume of Imports In
rubber manufactures was smaller
than for the corresponding period
last preceding, the revenues were In
creased $19,199 because of the ad
vance in the tariff.
The Increase In the duty was 16'i
per cent over the old rate.
The Increase in the revenues was
6 per cent.
But the increase in the retail cost
of all rubber manufacturers has been
from 20 to 30 per cent.
The people have gained, in revenue
$19,199 in nine months.
The rubber trust, which was form
ed Immediately aftor Senator Aldiich
and Senator Guggenheim bad mani
pulated the advance in rubber duties,
paid dividends aggregating J8.2 kt
cent, or $l,K20,0OO, on Its preferred
stok alone, uithin 1-0 days after
the trust began operations.
Isn't the country paying pretty
dearly for that paltry $19,199 In

Tuesday, August 1(5, is the date
of the primary election. Every voter
should go and vote. It is almost

county offices, but there are oppon

and state officials.

Luther's FARM Special
is one of those indispensable farm tools. To the farmer
who is discriminating, and looks at quality instead of
price, who wants the BEST whether he buys machinery,
clothing, shoes or food stuff. To such a one, LUTH
ER'S FARM SPECIAL will strongly appeal. Up to
the time we put out this great labor saving tool he had
to be content with the old, slow-cutting grindstone or
unsatisfactory emerv grinder, but now he can have the
service of the most perfect farm tool sharpening device
ever invented. There is not a tool used about the farm
that is superior to our FARM SPECIAL GRINDER as
a labor saver. . It sharpens everything in one-twentieth
the time it would take on the grindstone. The grind
stone cuts so slow that you would prefer to work with a
dull tool rather than endure the backache and HARD
WORK of keeping tools sharp on it.
IT IS EASY to sharpen tool on the Farm Special.
Your ten-year-old hoy will tell you it is fun to sharpen
everything on this FARM SPECIAL GRINDER.
