Governor Aldricli wants the

The more one studies the record
of VoodroV Wilson and also his
very brilliant career as an educat
or, together with his able admin
istration as governor of New
Jersey, the more he becomes
convinced lhat Ihe democrats
made no mistake in nominating
him for president of the United
Jasper ('. Mcllrieii, once stale
superintendent of schools, has
become ipiite an enthusiastic and
energetic worker in Ihe bull moose
parly ranks, and figures out that
lloosevelt will poll 100,(1110 voles,
Wilson 75,000 and Tart Co, 000.
We are. surprised that Jasper has
given Wilson and Taft as many
as he has, the estimate coming as
il does from a man who pretends
to know so much, and in reality
knows so little about such mat.

The way to get trade is to go

Church Howe has returned to
Nebraska, which is a reminder to
the pioneer republicans that there
was a time when Church was a
lower in republican caucuses in
the dim past. Hut bis class of

Harrow, the great attorney
who defended the McNamaras,
seems to have the edge on all the
lawyers on the Pacific, coasl. They
endeavored to place him behind
the prison bars. Me defended him
self and was acquitted, in spile
of the array of talent that as
sisted in his prosecution.
Let's not be too hard on Theo
dore, boys. Aside from calling
the convention, nominaling the
candidates, writing Ihe platform,
superintending Ihe lighting and
sealing of Ihe hall, selecting the
ollicers and a few other minor de
tails, he let Ihe bull moose con
vention do as it pleased. Hesides,
isn't he dead against bossism?
Now that it lias been fully
shown lhat lloosevelt was a tool
of the Standard Oil, it is well
enough to recall that he was re
sponsible for the merger of the
Tennessee Coal and Iron com
pany with the United Slates Steel
corporation and in collusion with
the harvester trust. Teddy has
too many trust tails attached to
his kite ever to hope to win.
The republican factions in Ne
braska seem further apart than
ever. The bull moosers want
everything their own way or they
won't play with the Taft people.
Hut the regular republicans have
come to the conclusion that they
have some say in the matter
which the bolters are bound to
listen to or else paddle their own
canoe, and they will do the same,
let the result be as il niav.
W hen Aldrich and Paul Clark
The lion. Odell spoke right out
in meeting the other day on the
llarriman connection with Ihe
lloosevelt campaign fund. Me
says Mr. lloosevelt sent for Mr.
llarriman and promised to ap
point Senator Depew ambassador
lo France in return for a quarter
of a million-dollar contribution
lo the campaign fund. And this
is the man who wouldn't sit at
the table with Lorimer. Merely
consigning Governor Odell to the
already overcrowded Annanias
club will hardly do. If Mr. Roose
velt was doing things of that sort
with the presidency when he ha
it, what would ho do now with
obligations to discharge running
well up jnlo the millions of dol
lars. And at that old Undo
rdiauncoy got whipsawed.
relumed from Ihe regular repub
lican national convention they
couldn't say mean things enough
about Ihe president, and were not
very choice in (he language they
used to express their contempt
Tor him. Now these two worthies
are moving heaven and earth in
an effort lo secure the support of
raft's friends in their effort of
lection. The Taft supporters are
queer sort of fellows if they can

Clark afler all the abuse thev have
leaped upon the president.
Unrest among Ihe rank and

Underwood and Governor Harmon,
who were opponents of Governor
Wilson for tlie nomination for
president, are all out working fur
the successful candidate. That

liberally lo the campaign fund.
The only way democrats have for
raising money. We can't com

W. T. Thompson, solicitor of
Stales because of the great, cost
of living has created a condition
of political uprising. The growth
of the trusts during the past four
administrations and their ap
parent control of the price of
articles of consumption, make it
appear that a change is needed in
Ihe management of national af
fairs. It is a well known fact that
the Roosevelt and Taft admin
ist rat ions have consistently fed
Ihe trusts and given them en
couragement in the nefarious
business of plundering Ihe people,
Ihe treasury department at, Wash
ington, and former treasurer of
Nebraska, while in Lincoln the
oilier day said, in reference to
Paul Clark, who is posing as a
republican-bull moose-third party
candidate for congress: "What
kind of a progressive is Paul
Clark, for instance? Hid he ever
contribute anything in time,
money or elTorl to bring about
clean government in Nebraska?
My recoiled ion is lhat he belong
ed to the old Hurlingtou railroad
machine and what lighting he did
was on its side." 5Ir. Thompson
has Paul sized up about right,
and being, not many months ago,
a prominent leader in the repub
lican parly of Nebraska, Mr.
Thompson ought lo know Paul
Clark as well as anyone.
FOR BULL MOOSERS.
The following question have
been propounded by William J.
Hryan lo the bull nwose boosters,
which seein to indicate that
Roosevelt was more anxious to be
nominated for the presidency than
to have progressive principles
win. The following are live of the
most pertinent asked by Mr.
1. Would a new parly have
been organized at this time if Mr.
Roosevelt were not a candidate
Would Mr. Roosevelt have
favored Ihe organization of a new
parly had any one besides him

3. Would Mr. Roosevelt have
regarded the republican bosses as
an insuperable objection to the
republican party if he bad suc
ceeded in seating enough or his
delegates to give him a majority
in the convention?
S. If Mr. Roosevelt had con
trolled the national committee by
one vote and had seated enough of
his southern delegates to domin
ate Ihe convention, would he not
regard the republican party as
the people's party and the only
organization to be trusted?

bis challenge to Hon. John M.
Morehead appears like a bid for
some cheap advertising. In the
lirst place, Mr. Morehead and the
people of Nebraska learned long
ago that Mr. Aldrich pays little
heed to facts when he appears be
fore an audience as was clearly
shown by his ollieial conduct fol
lowing his publie pledges in the
campaign of 1910, and as Mr.
Morehead long ag established a
reputation for doing just as he
says he will do, he or any other
gentleman would be at a disad
vantage in discussing matters of
public concern with a man like
In 1 . 1 0 Mr. Aldrich talked long
and bud about giving the people
a chance to rule, stating upon
divers and sundry occasions that
be would sign such measures as
Ihe people, through their chosen
representatives the legislature
might pass. In this as in other
matters of public concern, Mr.
Aldrich failed to keep his word,
vetoing some fifteen or sixteen
measures passed by the legis
lature, thus saying in effect that
he was greater than the power
which created him, and that his
promises to the peoplu were made
only to secure votes.
We are not advised as to Mr.
Morchead's intentions concerning
the challenge, but cannot see how
a man who. has a reputation for
truthfulness and integrity that he
is credited with having could go
upon the stump and debate ques
tions of importance to the people
when he knows from past ex
perience that his challenger is
led given to living up to his word
