The thriving little city of Ne
hawka deserves great credit for
possessing the liveliest bunch of
citizens of any town of its inches
in the stale. They take the lead
in road improvement, and the
roads in their immediate vicinity
are in beller condition than in any
olher section in Cass county. And
now' I hey propose to put up an
auditorium to cost $15,000. You
have to be a hustler to live in Ne

any drones in that community.
CAN'T COMPROMISE THIS.
It will probably take the in
genuity of the courts to determine
to which of the two, the repub
lican or bull moose parties, wil
belong tile privilege of naming
the minority members of boards
of election throughout the stale
Through the election of Gover
nor Morehead two years ago the
democrats won the right under
the statutes to name a majority o
the members of most of these
boards. The law seems to spe-
cilicially allot to the politica
parly casting the highest vote on
the head of Ihe state ticket the
right to name a controlling mem
bership in each election board, the
vote in each precinct governing
in that precinct only.
It also provides that the party
casting the next highest vole on
the head of the state ticket shall
have the privilege of appointing
the minority members.
What it will lie necessary to
find is someone who can tell sonii
way of determining whether tin
republicans or Ihe progressives
cast the most voles for governor.
It is not going to be an easy
question, to determine, inasmuch
Chester II. Aldrich, progres
sive republican, was the nominee
f both the progressives and the
republicans. It is quite easy lo
conclude, however, that a ma
jority of the votes cast for Gov
ernor Aldrich were those of pro-
It is a matter of common
nowledge that thousands of reg
ular republicans voted againsl
lim. Incensed by the proceed
ings in the republican state con
vention, when the Roosevelt sup
porters who chose lo remain in
the republican party captured
ontrol of the convention and at
empled to out-moose the third-
party progressives, thousands of
egular republicans Hocked to
the Morehead standard as a re-
uke to Aldrich and his near
The vole for president dis
hsed that the progressives of
the third parly and the progres
sives of the republican party to
gether far outnumbered the reg
ular republicans, the ratio being
L0tH for Roosevelt and 5 5,000
for Tall, and according to Ihe de
rees of Ihe courts in the litiga
i'n that ensued to establish the
status of Hie republican facions,
the Taft republicans must be con
sidered the faction entitled up to
late to Ihe party name.
If the statute provided that the
privilege of naming the minority
f the election officials should go
o the political party casting the
econd highest number of votes,
the problem would be easy- to
olve. It would go to the progres
sives in view of their 7 ()( voles
for Roosevelt. The provision that
it must be determined by the vote
on the head of the stale ticket is
the stalling point.
Of course Ibis dillicully might
be cured by agreement if Ihe
moosers happened to be in a
mood to agree. This is one com
plication that cannot be com
promised by an agreement be
tween Chairman Epperson of the
progressive republican faction
and Chairman Currie of the reg
ular republican faction, for
neither of them represents the
Right here is where Chairman
Coi-rick of Ihe- progressives gets
aboard. Chairman Epperson has
compromised away about eery
thing else for the progressives,
but he cannot turn this over to
any republican harmony junta if
the third party progressives pro
test, to the extent of a resort to
Ihe courts, unless some court is
found ready and willing to take
the bits in its tf-eth and determine
the question arbitrarily in favor
of the republicans.
Probably any such arbitrary
determination as that, in the face
of the showing of relative
strength of the antagonistic
parties in the last election, would
not strengthen the republican
cause appreciably. Lincoln Star.
