Judge Holmes of Lincoln says
Unit if the Roosevelt and Taft

One of the interesting problems
if our Nebraska political situa
tion relates to whether C. II.
Manuel, one of (iovernor Aldrirh's
non-polil ical appointees, and his
leam-mnte, J. L. MeHiieu, will be
able to so hobble the third lertn

course, their alloted job, and the
question is, can they do it while

The old saying that "misery
loves company" is evidently true
with the bull moose party in Ne
braska. Not satisfied with dis
rupting the republican parly, they
are now trying awful bard to get
up a muss in the democratic
ranks. Hut wei believe they are
losing some of their valuable time
in their efforts. While the demo
crats are pretty well harmonized,
they might be better.
The Lincoln Herald stands good
for this: "A movement is said to
be on fool in this district to put a
republican on the ticket for con
gress, by petition. This for re
publicans who want a republican
to vole for, since Paul Clark has
left the party and gone over to the
bull inoosers. The old line re
publicans are prelly sore on Mr.
Clark ami this seems to be one of
their ways of expressing them
selves." :o:
Charles F.lliolt, president of
Harvard university, is one of the
prominent supporters of Wood-

has usually voted the republican
ticket, but says lit! cannot support

things and which would entail the
expenditure of a lot of money.

other Nebraska lot went for
