Attorney Graves Nearly Eobbed
We could not say what day, but.
not a week ago. Attorney Craves,'
having a few moments at his dis-j
posal sauntered down to the creek .
south of Union and there threw out'
his line. Little he knew when he,
cast his hook that it was a far flung
proposition, for he was successful in
securing seme ten fish, most of them
of good length and some of them '
longer. Of course somewhere e!?e
always looks better, even for fishing, :
and the barrister anchored his catch
in the margin of the stream and went
up the stream where he secured two
more. Being satisfied, he went back
for his former catch and found that
the turtle had been making a meal
from some of the fish, having eaten
the half of the larger ones. This is
a fish and turtle story. .

FALSE CLAIMS OF THE
German Trade Competition Not
Hurting U. S. Business, Li
stead is Best Customer.
Washington, June 20. The ex
cuses made for the high tariff sched
ules in the pending tariff bill on the
ground that German trade competi
tion is injuring the business of the
United States were characterized as
a "bogey and a myth" by Senator
Hitchcock in the senate today. Sena
tor Hitchcock announced that he
would take the floor-tomorrow in the
senate and prove to the republican
proponents cf tl:e tariff that German
competition wa not injuring United
States business, in the least, but that
the tariff, by making it impossible
for Germany to seil to us, and there
tore for us, to sIl to Germany would
result in cutting down business in
"I will show tomorrow that the so
called German competition is a bo
rp7 and a myth," Senator Hitchcock
ti-jeiared, "and that the atempt to
erect a tariff barrier is an attempt
to continue commercially a war
which stopped a long time ago in a
n-ilitary souse, aiul that it is wholly
unjustified and in the interest of a
few manufacturers at the expense of
the American public." Germany is
our best market and customer at the
present time. Senator Hitchcock said,
and the statistics show that while
Germany's exports to the United
Etr.te.-. are only one-third what they
were before the war, the exports of
tha United States to Germany are
thrsc times whet sho exports to m.
Svrator McCumher, defending the
Ml!, declared that he did not believe
the manufacturers in thii country
v.culd rai.-e the prices after the pas
sage of the tariff bill.
"If the manufacturers do not in
tend to raise the prices or intend to
reduce them, then what is need of
tariff," Senator Hitchcock asked.
"We are right now on the eve of a
great era of trust formation," he
continued. "The trusts are forming
behind this tariff wall which you are
trying to erect in this bill." Senator

passed on June 1 by the Retail Hard

A prers dispatch from Lincoln

"The executive committee of the
Nebraska Pre?s arsociation has es

rnnounced -purpose of creating a

There "-vas c time when the news
paper publi-shers were supposed to
whoop it up for the candidate of
their party, simply as an evidence of
party regularity, but that time is
paf.se-l. True it is tint an editor
give.s editorial endorsement of a.
candidate or of the principles he rep
resents as a matter of public con
cern, but to go it blindly and de
vote time, energy and valuable space
in the espousal of a party is neither
profitable nor justifiable further than
the public weal is involved.
Political advertising lias become a
legitimate and necessary method of
publicity. Candidates appreciate the
need of propaganda that will place
before the public their particular
riualifiCEtion irrespective of party en
dorsement. Trimary election laws
have greatly enlarged the necessity
of such action. Where several can
didates for the same position seek
popular approval it is absolutely
urcersary for candidates cr their
friend's to mcke known their par
ticular qualifications for the position
to which they aspire.
The Nebraska Press association in
an organized and business like way
has espoused a cause that may well

The Lincoln Evening State Journal at the close of the
Senate Session 1317 said :
"Dir. McMullen has served three terms in the state legis
lature, in the house during- the 1905 and 1907 sessions, when
he had a part in moulding the most progressive legislation
ever put on the state statutes, the primary, the anti-pass,
railroad rate control, railway commission and other enact
ments. Mr. McMullen has been senator from Gage and
Pawnee counties for the past two years.
"Mr. Mcllullen was born in New York, but for thirty,
four years has been a resident of Gage county. He worked
as a newspaper reporter in Lincoln while studying at the
State University, from which he graduated. Later he grad-"
uated from the Columbia Law University at Washington. He
practiced law for some six or seven years, but in recent
years has been engaged in extensive farming operations and
has not followed his old profession. He has lands in Ne
braska and elsewhere.
"Senator McMullen has been one of the progressive re
publican leaders for a number of year3 and during the last
session vas the most pronounced exponent of square-toed
Americanism in the state senate. He is an excellent speaker,
just in his prime, and is well known over his district."

Trains to be Bun.
Washington, June 20. With all
agencies of the government deter
mined to prevent a railroad strike if
possible, and to make the strike in
effective in its efforts to paralyze
transportation, if it does come, the
issue was a subject of discussion at
the cabinet meeting today.
Following the cabinet session,
nothing was disclosed as to the trend
of the discussion, but it is known
that the president's advisers are
keeping in close touch with the sit
uation and that plans are under way
to deal with any emergency.
Cannot Change Laws
- At the capitol there is considerable
apprehension, but the view of the
majority seeni3 to be that there is
nothing that congress can do in a
legislative way to relieve the situa
tion at this time. i
No plans now exists it was stated,'
for amendments of the Cummins
rch law. Senator Cummins. Iowa,
chairman of the interstate commerce
committee, still believes that there
vfill bo no strike and sees nothing
that rongreiis can do to prevent it
Fhould J':c workers decV.e to quit.
He thinks, however, that the gov
ernment would reak the strike.
"I rru-not brins myself to bolieve
thrtt there wil be a railroad strike,"
f;id Senator Cummins. "The coun
try cannot go through a railroad
strike on top ot the coal strike. The
government would not permit the
suffering that would follow such a
i No Charges Planned
"But there is no program now for
amendment of the transportation act.
About the only way the act could
be amended in the present situation
would be by the insertion of penalty
clauses directed at railroads or em
ployes disregarding the awards of
the railroad labor board and making
strikes a conspiracy. Eut it is use-,
s .! mini
les to talk of that because you can
not get such legislation through con
gress at this time. That is certain.
"If the, strike should come, the
government would have to see to It
that trains continue to run. There
is no alternative."
