It Is an evident fact that all Re
publican candidates for the leglsla-
ture are against county option, and
the voters do not want to forget that'omloa, basU wlthout
when they vote for the Republican
candidates they are voting for coun
ty option. Tho Mate Republican con
vention declared for county option by
an overwhelming majority, ami the
sixteen delegates frou Cuss county
voted solidly for It.

Among; those who did not have any
conHpIc nous part in the Ohio Repub
lican ronvcntlon was Joneph U. For
aker. Tho Democratic convention at
Crand Inland was tho largest atate
convention ever held in Nebraska.
The action of tho convention was a
foregone conclusion weeks before the
chairman rapped for order. The
platform report wus unique In that
It presented two nilnorty reports and
ono dissent from a plank unaccom
panied by a minority report. Tho
minority report demanding the re
jection of county option was defeat
ed by Just four more votes than Mr.
Bryan's demand for a county option
plank. Tho convention took tho po
sition that the Initiative and refer
endum would offer the best practical
solution of all such questions.
Tho Btandpat record of Senators
Iturkett and Drown was vindicated at
tho Lincoln convention by tho de
feat of Congressman NorrU, Insur
gent, for temporary chairman. Tho
Republican convention's declaration
for county option Is in queer contrast
to that party's record on tho liquor
question for tho pant twenty years.
Although In almost uninterrupted
power for the last quarter of a cen
turt the G. O. 1, took not one ad
vance atep on tho liquor question.

Tho state prison Is practically self

The attempt to deprive the Popu
lists of representation upon the state
ticket, and also for the Republican
machine an advantage by manipulat
ing the courts, has come to naught.
Last Thursday Judge Frost of the
Lancaster distrUt court refused to
make permanent the Injunction that
was sought by Victor Kosewatcr. who
asked that all candidates who had fil
ed for both Democratic and Popu
list nominations without paying two

Some Idea of the remarkable In
creaso of population In the southern
and southwestern states the past de
cade Is to be gained from the census
bureau's announcement as to Okla
homa City. The census Just taken
shows a population of 64,203, an
Increase of 54.16S since 19100, and
an Increase of 31.753 since 1!0,
when a special census showed 32,
432. The ratio of increase in three
years is t7.S per cent and-for the
ten years since the last previous cen
sus it Is nearly 5 40 per cent.
The nomination of William II.
Terry, by the Independents, to the
office of governor brings Joy to mil
lions of hearts. The selection of a
man of lofty moral principles, who
has proved to the public his truth
worthy character In the discharge of
most responsible official duties,
brings assurance that the righteous
forces of the grand old Keystone
state are rising in a mighty tide
against the chain of corruption which
for more than a generation has made
the name of Pennsylvania a by-word
throughout the union.
There is little doubt that the king's

of conscience and religious liberty.
The llarriman estate, estimated at
over $'40,000,000 at the time of his
death, is now placed by the executor
at $71,000,000. There has been little
change since Mr. Ilarrlman's death in
the average value of the stocks and
bonds of which the estate is mainly
composed. The fifty per cent shrink
age is due mainly to tho fact that the
state of New York is about to levy a
tax thereon. For tax dodging pur
poses $71,000,000 Is a very conserva
tive estimate. As collateral for bor

County Attorney W. C. Ramsey
today was guilty of a feat which no
Republican has ever been known to
perform, viz; resign a public office.
It has been rumored for some time
that the attorney had in contempla
tion this step, and when on the last
ay for filing nominations, passed and
he did not file for a second term, the
rumor gained weight. Today it is no
longer a rumor but a settled fact that
a good Democrat steps aside and al
lows a Republican board to appoint
As was also rumored that the Re
publican candidate for the position
would likely receive the appoint
ment, this rumor proved to have a
foundation in fact, for that Is what
the board did. Upon accepting the
resignation of Mr. Ramsey, the ap

The Word With the Bark On. ,
There is no use talking or ever
hinting at dodging county option by
candidates of either party for the leg
islature. A legislature with a Demo
cratic majority may surely be de
pended upon to vote against a county
option measure, and a legislature
with a Republican majority will just
as surely pas3 a county option law.
The two parties are pledged and the
legislative candidate of either p&rty
who does not Intend to stand by that
pledge had better say so now. The
person who argues that county op
tion is not a party issue in Nebraska
has another guess coming. Kearne
The Hub is one of the leading Re
publican papers In Nebraska. Every
Republican candidate for the legisla
ture Is bound by the plank adopted
by the Republican state convention la
favor of county option. There Is
no carrying water on both shoulders
