Entered at the Postoffiee at Plattsmouth, Nebraska, as second-class matter. $1.50 PER YEAR IN ADVANCE It is up to the people now In Ne braska. It Is either county option, or against county option. :o: Now come3 a conservative "trusted bank employee" In New York who 6wiped only $600,000. -:o:- Senator Lorimer' resignation con tinues to be delayed in transmission, and possibly it has gone to the dead letter office. :o: It may be suggested that a coast defense gun that shooU backward as well as forward Is almost as bad as none at all. :o: The standpatters met the steam roller to perfection In the Republican convention at Lincoln. They were there with both feet. :o: In Ohio the machine Republican! organization seems to be afraid to nominate Mr. Garfield for governor, and equally afraid not to. :o: Metcalfe found out at Grand Island that the Democrats of Nebraska are almost united on Congressman Hit chcock for the United States senate. :o: Little Vlek Rosewater got beauti fully sat down upon at the Lincoln convention. He fared worse really that Bryan did at Grand Island. :o: 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. :o: 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 non to help them out In all that there platform declares for, nntlonal y. " :o: The Prohibitionists wero very cute In getting control of what was term ed the Populist state convention at Grand Island. When their scheme waB discovered all the old-time Popu liHts withdrew and let them run things to suit themselves, and went over and Joined the Democrats. Pro hibitionists are pursuing a desperate course to carry out their plans. Put they won't work with the people. :o: 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. :o: 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. :o: 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 machine. 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. -:o:- IIK IOUGOT SONififlJING. 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) as senator. 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 tal. :o: AND THIS IS "I'KOTKCTIOX." Speaker Cannon attempts to justify the increase In the rubber tariff on the ground that it has increased the revenues. 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 crease In the rubber revenu And the rubber "job" !s only one of hundreds of similar "Jobs" that were put over on the people In mak ing of "the best tariff law ever en acted." And this Is the sort of thing they call "protection!" Kansas City Star, Rep. :o: "All eyes are on Ohio," says a Cleveland exchange. Well, that gang of Ohio politicians will bear watching closely. :o: Among Governor Harmon's advan tages In Ohio, the Republican con vention lias seen fit to praise the Payne-Aldrlch tariff. :o: When the temperature climbs up to 103 In the shade, somehow the mani fold Beauties and blessings of sun shine seenl a bit exaggerated. :o: Governor Carroll of Iowa has been Indicted by a grand Jury on the charge of criminal libel. If proven guilty the penalty is either a Jail sentence of one year or a fine not to exceed $1,000. :o: Now that an acreal navigator has demonstrated the utter uselessncss of the battleship, It Is In order to con demn congress for spending millions of the peoples' money In building these monsters. :o: Secretary of State Junkin is very much dissatisfied with the Republi can platform, and is not mealy mouthed In expressing himself eith er. Junklns will find plenty of Re publicans in the same boat with him ere the Ides of Nevember roll round, round. :o: During the penuancy of the Payne Aldrlch tariff bill In congress Senator Burkett of this state, oted 119 times with Senator Aldrlch of Rhode Island, to protect the interests of the six New England states. He voted to make clothing higher, but he nev er voted once for the Interests of the farmers and poorer classes. :o: Tuesday, August 1(5, is the date of the primary election. Every voter should go and vote. It is almost as Important that you attend the prl niary as It Is that you go to the gen eral election. There will be no op ponents on the Democratic ticket for county offices, but there are oppon ents for the nomination of governor and state officials. :o: Slippery Elmer will have to do some very queer side-stepping after the primaries. He will have to an swer a great ninny questions that he don't dream will bo asked him during the campaign. He supported many measures In the Payne-Aldrlch tariff that he knew was directly against the welfare of the people of his own state He must come to the front In de fense of bis record.

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. BAUcR HEATING! Ben Brooks was called to Omaha this afternoon on business. Ed.
