Says the World-IIerald: "The re

power. Its candidate for governor
repudiates the promise in advance of
his election and promises instead
public development at public expense.
He is at war with his party and his

Don't you think for a moment that
the people of Nebraska are ready to
trade a man who has been tried and
true as governor, for one of inex
perience in the management of state
affairs. Governor Moorehcad has
proved himself a great man in the

At both republican anel democratic

Somebody is going to be fooled, and

The tlemocratic party pledges the
state a public warehouse law. With
such a law in operation the farmers
of Nebraska will not be required to
sell their corn, their wheat, and their
other products in the cheapest mar
ket, that prevails just about harvest
time. They will be enabled to store
their crops in public elevators, re
ceive tnereior warehouse receipts,
that are prime security at the banks,
to borrow on such receipts money for
their immediate needs, and mean
while hold their crops till they are
ready to sell' them. The plan is sim
ple, proved and sure. It prevails in
many states. It not only enables the
farmer to get a fair price for his
proeluce, but it develops a local mar
ket and home industry. Experience
in Kansas, in Illinois, in Minnesota
and elsewhere proves that it would
save the farmers of Nebraska, and
so to the whole state of Nebraska,
enough money in a single year to de
velop all the water power in the
state. And it would not be at the
expense of the consumer. It would
simply give to the farmer instead of
to the speculator and the great ter

STICK TO THE FARM.
With winter coming on, and the
crops safely harvested and stowed
away, many young men of the farms
will be casting longing eyes toward
the great cities.
They would leave the green fields
and thelf-pieasures and seek the glare
of the electric lights and the allure
ments of the great white way.
. They would taste of the greater

today, for the nation is dependent
upon the farmer.

From the Roil of the farms must
come the produce which sustains life
and body for the countless thousands
who throng the cities.
And year by year young men of

And each one who forsakes the
farm reduces the producing capacity
of the country, although our con
stantly increasing population calls
for greater farm production.
Voting men of brains are needed
on the farm. Their presence there
means much to their country a
thousand times more than they real
ize. The city offers but one chance in a
hunelreel for success, for every large
city is already over populated, and
for every job worth the having there
are many applicants.
Today, as we write this article,
every city in the country is groaning
under the burden of itp unemployed.
Many hundreds of thousands of peo
ple are without bread, and wholly de
pendent upon charity. That is the
condition of the great cities today

A. J. Snyder, democratic candidate
for recorder of deeds, has been very
attentive to the duties of the office,
so much so, in fact, that he has made
many new friends by his gentlemanly
deportment and efficiency.
They must have a queer attorney
general down in Arkansas. He says
that although the law exempts from
the road tax all persons who are
physically disabled, it does hot pro
vide that the certificate Or oath of a
physician shall constitute evidence of
such disability. He recommends that
persons refusing to work out or pay
the tax be indicted by grand juries.
But the grand jurors will be likely
to supply the common sense to the

official has been unable to find.
AN APPEAL TO DEMOCRATS.
An obligation as party men and as
citizens rests upon the democrats of
Nebraska and it is one that calls im
peratively for immediate discharge.
The democratic state committee,
charged with the conduct of the na
tional and state campaign in Ne
braska, is "broke."
. It is in urgent need of funds with
which to Carry on the ordinary and
necessary activities of the contest that
is being waged to put Nebraska in
the Wilson and Moorohead column on
the third day of next month.
The appeal issued by Chairman
Thompson and Secretary Spraguc ap
pears elsewhere in totlay's paper. The
World-Herald urges all those of its
readers who are in sympathy' with
the purposes of the democratic cam
paign to give to that appeal their
prompt and generous response.
A great deal of money is not re
quired. But a few thousand dollars
may spell the difference between de
feat and victory. There is work, a
great deal of work, that ought to be
done and is not being done, purely
because of a lack of funds.
The campaign against Wilson and
Moorehead is well financed. The re
publican headquarters at Lincoln are
the scene of extraordinary activity.
There is a plenty of money to hire
a small army of clerko anel to provide
an immense amount of literature and
letters with which the state is be
ing flooded, containing unfair and un
truthful attacks on democratic ad
ministrat'on in both state and na
It is up to the democrats of Ne
braska who indorse the administra
tion of Woodrow Wilson, and the ad
ministration of Governor Moorehead,
and who tlesire a Nebraska indorse
ment for both at the polls, to fur
nish the funds necessnry for provid
ing means to meet the republican at
tack. There is no time to spare. Send
in your contributions at once to Dr.
P. L. Hall at Lincoln, treasurer of the
state committee or, if you prefer,
mail it to the World-Heraltl and this
newspaper will forward it to Dr.
Hall. Send a dollar if you can spare
no more. Make it five, or ten, or
twenty-five dollars if you can afford
it. It will be money devoted to a
good cause the cause of clean anil
honest and efficient government.
The Beatrice Sun winds up u long
editorial in reference to Howell, who
is trying his best to be governor of
Nebraska, as follows: "Mr. Howell
cannot claim the votes of republican
partisans, because he opposed the re
publican canelidate foi president; he
cannot claim the votes of the Roose
velt wing of the party, because Mr.
Roosevelt has declared for Mr. Sack
ett; he cannot ask for democratic
support, because he cannot lay
a finger upon any fatal error of
Governor Moorehead's; he cannot ask
the support of the independent vot
ers whose only interest is in getting
honest and efficient government, be
cause it has not shown that a change
in the governorship is needed to gain
that end. Therefore Mr. Howell's
name is pants."
An effort is to be put forth by the
members of the G. A. R. everywhere
to organize the Sons of Veterans.
We approve of this move because it
will not be many years till the last
survivor of the civil var will be con
signed to the silent tmb. Why not
also include in the organization of
the Sons of Veterans Daughters of
Veterans, also? The daughters of
the old veterans could assist in many
ways in making a success of local
organizations. We wouhl like to adel
Senator La Follctte is a pretty
shrewd guy. He is not to be seduced

that he is excellently well fitted for

though they were' his :ndividuui inter

PHYSICIAN WITH THE TREY
0' HEART FILM COMPANY
It is an interesting fact, and one
that is not generally known, that in
view of the musical dangers that at
tend the production of "The Trey o'
Hearts" series, the company is not
allowed to leave the studio grounds
at Hollywood for tho purpose of
staging scenes in the. serial unless it
is accompanied by one of the com
pany physicians from the hospital at
Universal City. With him goes an
emergency kit complete enough for
him to set up p. temporary field hos
pital, shoultl the occasion arise.
So far as can be ascertained, this
is the first time on record where such
a precaution has been eieemed neces
sary. The wisdom of the unusual
procedure, however, has been demon
strated a number of times, for scarce
ly an installment is completed that
has not been attended by some acci
dent of more or les3 seriousness, call
ing for the immediate services of a
physician. That none of them have
been serious is, of course, partly due
to the character of ths actors who arc
willing to run such risks. But it must
be admitted that luck seems to have
played an important p irt in the happy
termination of v several of them.
