these columns we have endeavor

given no expression that anyone

that it is right for a newspaper

there are three candidates run

to receive the nomination. The
Journal does not believe that
Speaker Clark endorses Arthur
Mullens mode of campaigning, It

do not believe that any campaign

When a man runs for an ollice
on the democratic ticket he should"
consult even his own mind be
fore he is so sure that he has a
right to go upon that ticket. We
like to support true democrats,
and nothing gives us greater
pleasure, and a candidate who
cannot fill the bill has his gall
with him when ho asks honest
democrats to support him.
After fighting democratic bat
tles for fifty years it makes a man
almost feel like all efforts in that
direction was time lost when he
views the condition of the party
in Nebraska. And what makes
the condition so much worse is
that our own party friends are to
blame for such a stale of affairs.
Men who profess to bo leaders and
managers of the campaigns for
several presidential candidates
All of these troubles occurring at
a time when the party stood its
best show of carrying the stale.
There has been too much bad
feeling engendered, and the men
who ought to be the last ones to
create such discord among demo
crats will be to blame if the party
is defeated in Nebraska this fall.
The slogan of democrats should
be down with the bosses and
"let the people rule." That is
where the true principles of demo.
cracy come in.

AFTER THE CONVENTION.
The World-Herald has given
space to a lengthy statement from
Arthur F. Mullen, manager of the
Champ Clark campaign in this
state, addressed "To the Demo
crats of Nebraska." The letter is
devoted chielly to criticism of the
opposing candidates, Governor
Harmon and Governor Wilson.
It is to be regretted that the
Clark management feels it neces
sary to become a party to a cam
paign of recrimination. It is. lo
be regrelted, in fact, that so many
eminent democrats seem to forget
that after the Nebraska primaries
comes the Baltimore convention,
and after the convention the long,
hard light for the election of the
Champ Clark may bo nominated
at Baltimore. Stranger things
than that have happened in
politics. If he is, will ho be any
stronger in the campaign for all
the harsh and unkind things his
support era are saying now about
Ihe other candidates? Will it tend
to make those democrats who had
supported. Harmon, and Wilson,
any more zealous and enthusi
astic in his behalf? s
Suppose Wilson is nominated,
after his friends, from ocean lo
ocean, have spent months in de
nouncing not only Harmon and
Clark, but the supporters of
Harmon and Clark? In the
great states which the democratic
nominee must carry lo win Har

warm friends. Will their sup

The World-Herald deprecates
Ibis method of campaigning. The

control of (he federal government
in order that it may reduce (ho

lions and regulate those that are
legal, strike at special privilege
wherever it rears its ugly head
and give this nation an economi
cal and elllcient government.
