John Wunderlich should be elected
shtrirf of Casrj county in November
because he is the best man for the

the day i. lung, his office would hi

the manner in which his accounts arc
kept, if John Wunderlich is elected
heriff. You can depend upon that.
Theater managers are seriously con
sidering a revival of the old-fashioned
melodrama, because patrons want to
see the villain get the worst of it.
Tney want more than that. They
want the villain to get all that's com
ing to him. A movie, nowaday?, is a
jailure if the villain merely jets shot.
That's too easy. They want the hero
to beat him up, and the heroine tr
pull his hair ai"l scratch him,
then if he isn't thrown over a cliff, the
patrons go away with the feeling thai
the film was only lair.

Unfortunately for 2r. Hughes and

A GOOD STATE.
An incense of ;;;:,r90,00t in the do
posits in Nebraska state banks in the
past three and a half months sets an
other peg in the prosperity scoreboard.
The state is not only making much
money, but it is patting it in the bank,
all of w hich advertises Cornhuskcrdom
to the world as a pretty good place to
live, after all.
Without reference to a single issue
before the people, and shutting our
cars necurcly against the pleadings of
parties and candidates and all, th
fact remains that anyone who seeks to
tear down Nebraska thi year is going
to have a Titanlike task. Life here is
just as enjoyable as in any other state
in the Union, and much more enjoyable
than in most states. And there are
very few valid grounds for complaint
as to social, or moral or mental of
physical conditions in Nebraska. :
Tis a good state we live in let's
rec how wo can excel each other in
boosting it, and attracting outsiders
to come here and enjoy it with us.

speeches of the campaign. After care
ful consideration. I have joined the
Wilson Independent league. I thor
oughly believe that the best interests
of the country requires Mr. Wiir.onV.
My chief reasons for voLing for
President Wilson follow;
1. The so-called is-:ues of ''Amer
icanism,' preparedness, the. Lusitani.i
incident, the Mexican situation, and
ail others that have gtown out of for
eign affairs, appear to mo to be merely
red herrings acrrss the trail."' intended
to put the public on" the scent. I have
little doubt that, by diverting attenion
from themsolves to these trumped u:
is sues, the v publican "old guard"
hone to "put over" on the public an
other "Payne-Aldrich" tariff-. They
expect to work the war and Mexico
for aH they are worth to both hide
and guide th.e'r, own private interests
after the election.
"J. Moreover. ;uite irrespective cf

election of Mr. Hughes would surely

tics out of the tariff. It, is worih not
ing that if suv'i a result can be accom
plished through a tariff commission, it
will certainlv i.ot be through a tariff
commission appointed by protecticn-
3. I believe, at heart, Mr. Wil-on's
Mexican policy is sounder than that
which Mr. Hughes seems to indorse.
Few -of the American people realize,
as Mr. Wiison rtali:es, that here, too.
i-; a ca-e (and n far worse one than
American protection) of special inter
ests capturing a government in their
-1. So far as our relation to Euro
pcan affairs is concerned, I do not
think that we iill become more effi
cient by swapping horses while we
arc crossing a stream. A change may
plunge us into war and it would cer
tainly, in the four months between
election and inauguration, paralyze
our foreign policy completely. From
November to March may be the most
critical months of the war. If Mr.
Hughes is elected neither we nor for
eign nations will know, during that
interim, exactly where we stand.
. There is another great danger to
our national efficiency in voting the
republican ticket. If Mr. Hughes is
elected, the senate will probably re
main democratic. Only a Republican
landslide can make the senate republic-en
and of such a landslide there
seems no prospect. .
(. The democratic platform is more
progressive and effective than the re
publican. The plank on woman suf
frage is more progressive than the
republican. Mr. Wilson is more care
ful than Mr. Hughes to avoid giving
the impression of making promises be
yond his party's platform, promises
which he cannot give any guarantees
of keeping. Hut he is, I have reason
to believe, at heart more of a suffra
gist than Mr. Hughes, who seems to
accept woman suffrage as a sort of
necessary evil; he would marry the
suffragette to get rid of her!
- 7. I think the democrats have kept
faith with the people and deserve re
election on their record. Taken as a
whole the Wilson administration has
been more conservative than any pre
vious administration for a generation.
The Federal Reserve act, the Farm
Loan act, the Underwood act, the
Child Labor act and a half dozen oth
ens of importance are a monument,
and an imposing one, to Mr. Wilson's
efficiency in proposing, preparing and
pushing legislation through congress.
S. I also think that Mr. Wilson has
withstood, with lemarkable firmness,
iho tremendous pressure of office-seek
ers and maintained, as well as any
nrevious piesident, especially at a
change of administration, the princi
ple.! of civil service reform. The at
tempt to prove the contrary has failed
t. Like many other voters, I am re
pelled, rather than attracted, by a
campaign of carping criticism in
which the speeches of the republican
candidate consist chiefly of fault-find
ing, even where faults are to be found
