Business men of Chicago are
not frightened by the republican

the .election of (lovernor Wilson

and prosperity for all classes.

say, at the Auditorium in Lincoln,
ami the candidates refused to sit
upon the slage from which he
spoke. It looks like Norris "is in

In considering the qualificnt ions
of each of Ihe applicants for the
presidency of the United States it
behooves us to take care to select
a man who will his able to act in
harmony with his assistants.
Without, doubt (lovernor Wilson
will be able to bring about the
much needed reforms because he
will have the undivided support
of a democratic congress.
The "scarecrow" sent out from
Omaha under Ihe signature of
Nathan Merriam, president of the
Mcrriam Millard Co., is a daisy,
in Ihe way of an effort to in
limidate voters. Like evcrvune

"feather his own nest" a lillle

for the third term. His tommy
rot will miss wide of its mark

l.x- lovernor Shallenberger is
as good a man as there is in Ihe
slate for United States senator.
He is able and fearless, and if
elected next Tuesday the people
of Nebraska can always depend
upon their interests being well
guarded in Washington. Then
go to the polls next Tuesday and
vote for a safe and sane man for

Paul Clark, bull moose candid
ale for congress, had hard work
to get anyone to preside at one
of his meetings the other night in
Havelock. One man selected sail
that he was a republican, and as
lie was not going to support Clark
he could not preside. The scrum

Two or three others were solicit

Be Sure and Read.
So much effort has been made
to bel'ou the fads relative to tho
submission of a workable initi
ative and referendum law that it
might be well to make them so
plain lli.it he who runs may read.
In the first place, there was no
division of sentiment upon the
one fact ttiat .Nebraska should
have such a law. Second, the only
division of sentiment was upon
the percentages that should be
lived for initiation, referring or
adopting constitutional amend
ments. is doubtless true, as
charged, I hat some reactionaries
sought lo minimize the good ef
Vct.s of the law by tixing the per
centages unreasonably high. II
is jul, as true that some over-en-lhusialic
advocates of the law
wauled to tlx the percentages so
low I liiil any fool proposil imi
could gel mi iiii' ballot. The
sensible Ihiug to do, then, was to
make I lie nerrculages reasonable.
-first, to permit of Ihe initiation
f good measures without too
much difficulty; second, to make
it reasonably dillicult to initiate
measures calculated to bring the
aw into ridicule; third, lo make
it reasonably easy to refer wit h-
nil. making it too easy and thus
leiinit the law to be brought into
disrepute. There was one ele
ment ostensibly enthusiastic for
the adoption of such a law. that

of a measure that would he

Skiles ami Senator Morehead were
identical. The record shows that
every amendment adopted was
calculated to make what is admit

its kind in any slale. It is so ad

In view of the attempt to deceive

Chas. 11. Husch of Nebraska
City is the nominee of the demo
cratic party for float represent
ative in the approaching session
of the legislature from the Eighth
district, comprising the counties
of Oloe and Cass. Mr. Husch
needs no introduction to the vot
ers of Otoe county, being person
ally known lo almost every citizen
pf this county. As deputy in the
office of the late Herman R.
Young, county clerk of Otoe coun
ty, and subsequently for two
terms himself county clerk of this
county, Mr. Husch discharged his
duties as a public officer in a
manner to win the unstinted
praise and commendation of the
taxpayers of all parties, and few
men have retired from a county
office with so unanimous a feeling
on the part of all citizens of the
county as is expressed in the
CHARLES H. BUSCH
familiar saying, "Well done, good
and faithful servant." At the in
sistence of many friends in both
parties, who recognize the value
of Mr. Husch's splendid business
ability, his intelligence in the
handling of public business, and
his high personal character, he
consented to become a candidate
for the legislature, and in this
wider field lo represent the peo
ple of Cass and Otoe counties in
Ihe important public duties con
nected with the making of pro
gressive laws for the people of
Ihe stale and the appropriation
of funds necessary for the con
duct of the business of the state.
For these duties no man is better
equipped by experience and ability
than Chas. II. Husch, and a de
served recognition of his previous
public services to the people of
this county should give him the
practically unanimous support of
the voters of Otoe county.
