The people of Nebraska City
are happy in knowing that their

The reciprocity bill seems cer

of the senators to resist.

Strange to say, the senators
who used to wear the sugar trust
tag in place of a boulonniere,
have got to the point where they
keep it inside their coats.
It is a fortunate circumstance
for the ofllcers of the weather
bureau these days that the init
ative, referendum and recall can
not be invoked in their case.
John Kuhl, speaker of the

"Harmony" should be the
watchword of all good democrats.
Nothing can be gained by pander
ing over the differences of the
last campaign. Democrats al
ways have a hard fight in Ne
braska, to say the least, and they
must get ready to march in one
solid phalanx if they expect sue
cess. We have a great chance to
win in the election this fall by
slaying right together and throw
ing aside all ill-feeling engender'
ed in the last campaign .
The Journal editor has received
a letler from Hon. C. V. Pool, ex
speaker of the house of rep
resentatives, in which he says it
is too early to begin a campaign
for governor, notwithstanding
his name has been very frequent
ly mentioned for the position. If
the race he made for secretary of
state a year ago is any indication
as to Charley's popularity, he w ill
certainly prove a popular can
didate for governor. He ran so
close to the successful candidate
for secretary of state that we
shall always think there was skul

Democrats, get together and
Met bygones be bygones." Let us
heal all the old sores. That is the
way to do if we possess the true
spirit of democracy.
Fourteen lumber trust men are
presented with indictments, which
papers it is now fashionable to
frame and hang by the side of
your college degree.
The arbitration treaty with
England is nearly ready, but the
senate will observo its rights to
deposit chestnut burrs beneath
the British lion's tail.
If Queen Mary is the raging
beauty the correspondents at the
coronation represent her to be,
why is it that none of her photo
graphs reveal the fact?
Does the signal service know
any more about the weather than
anyone else? It doesn't look that
way. i tie rains uo not come as
predicted by that department.
Many college students are now-
getting trips to Europe by feeding
cattle on the freight boats. This
is much preferable to serving
course dinners lo the smart set as
summer hotel waiters.
Chancellor Day says the laws
are made by ignorant people. The
chancellor is slightly mistaken
On the contrary, the laws are
largely made by shrewd persons
who know exactly what they want.
The man who invented confetta
should have a life sentence and
the man who bbrings it to town

That man Shotwell is now hav

Pome people are so mean as to
say that he wrote the 'interviews
himself at the dictation of Vic
Rosewater. Now ain't that awful.
Little Vic is up to many little
tricks, but we can't hardly be
lieve this is true.
The testimony taken at Wash
ington establishes the fact that
beyond contradiction thai the
sugar, trust., and. the Mormon
church were partners and that
support of the republican party
by the church was in payment for
high tariffs on sugar. Other
articles recently printed establish
another fact. The Mormon
church is Smoot, Joseph F. Smith,
Cutler and a few other Mormon
leaders. It is all "business," and
business of the most sordid kind.
The church is in business and in
politics solely for business
