Cnmmentt, Kind and Othorwlae, on th
Various Candidates for Governor, by
the Fusion Press of Nebraska
! ... i
DR. ROBERT DAMERELL.
Alma Record: A good many of our
people desire to see Dr. Damerell ele
vated to the position of governor, and,
judging from the expressions in our
exchanges, their desire may be real
ized. Franklin Sentinel: In our judgment,
exceedingly well qualified to fill the
place to which he aspires. No man
ever made a better record than did
he as superintendent of the Hastings
asylum during Holcomb's administra
tion. Red Cloud Nation: If the fusion
forces expect to win this fall, they
must have true and tried men as
standard bearers. There are plenty
of such men, but we know of no man !
who has gained more confidence of
the people than Dr. Robert Damerell.
IJp is widely known for his executive
PkMlity, which every one concedes is
the prime requirement for the office
Fremont Leader: Dr. Damerell's
name is being put forward in connec
tion with the governorship. He Is an
excellent man, having been tried In
pi any places and found to be staunch
Valentine Democrat: The Red Cloud
Nation is still sending us marked co
pies containing editorials booming Dr.
Damerell. who wants to get the nomi
nation for governor. We don't care
a first part of his name whether he
gets the nomination or not. There
are several good democrats in Ne
braska who have lived here as long
ps he has and have not put in all their
time in seeking or holding office, and
we would prefer to see some of them
get the nomination.
GEORGE W. BERGE.
Lincoln Daily Post: Major William
Daily, a prominent populist of Nema
ha county, while in the city recently,
when asked about the political situa
tion in his part of the state, said:
"The sentiment in our county for gov
ernor Is decidedly in favor of George
W. Berge of Lincoln. I saw Mr. Berge
today and tried to persuade him to be
come an active candidate, but this he
declined to do. He believes that this
5 ear the conventions at Grand Island
should be free to select the strongest
man and not the name of any man be
cause he is pressing his candidacy.
"This very trait in Berge makes
him a strong candidate. Modest and
diffident so far as seeking the nomi
'vrvation. but a flgrhter like a Boer when
once nominated. This was our ex
perience with him in the congres
sional campaign In this district in
1900. The returns show that Berge
received more votes in his home
county than any other candidate upon
the fusion ticket. This is the kind
of a man we want this fall."
"Then you believe, Mr. Daily, that
we can win in the state this fall, do
you?" asked the Post man.
"Yes sir," was the prompt reply,
"with the right man at the head of
the ticket, and I believe Berge Is that
man. He is a brilliant campaigner;
a man of strong convictions; earnest
and sincere In what he advocates, he
,4. will draw every democrat and every
"ft;, populist and a great many republi
cans. He did this in his congres
sional Tace in 1900. when partisan
linos were tightly drawn. He would
make even greater inroads on the re
publicans in this off year."
"I believe Berge is the most avail
able man in the field for governor and
a winner. We are coming up strong
to nominate him.
GEN. VICTOR VIFQUAIN.
Adams County Democrat: It Is sev
eral months since the Democrat sug
gested that among possible democratic
candidates for governor. General Vif
qualn stands better with Nebraska
people than any democrat that could
be named. As convention day nears
our views are confirmed. If a demo
crat Is nominated it will be General
WILLIAM L. STARK. '
' Stromsbure Headlight TTnn W T.
Stark will make the "best governor
Nebraska ever had."
Polk County Democrat: The allied
reform forces of Nebraska need the
best man on their state ticket this
year that can be found in the rank's
of the two parties. The people are
thoroughly disgusted with all sham
reform and are ready to leave the
party that was going to "redeem"
Nebraska two years ago, If only they
will be made to understand that the
reform parties are promising a reform
that they will put into practice if the
power is given into their hands. And
in this connection there is the name
of one that stands out more promi
nently than that of any other person
at the present time for the head of our
ticket. It is that of Hon. W. L. Stark.
With a ballot containing that gentle
man's name at the head for the place
of governor the masses of the people
would not care much about platform
platitudes. They would know , that
Stark would give equal and exact jus
tice in the management of the gov
ernor's office and the control of state
Institutions. If the people want a re
form Instituted in the state house at
Lincoln they had best help boost along
the Stark band wagon.
Fairbury Journal: Most of the fu
sion papers in the Fourth congres
sional district are of the opinion that
W. L. Stark would make an ideal can
didate for governor, but that he can
not well be spared from congress at
this time. The contest will likely be
close this fall and Congressman Stark
would poll more votes than any other
man we can think of in the district.
DR. CHARLES E. COFFIN.
Rushville Standard: The latest pop
ulist gubernatorial timber is Dr. C. E.
Coffin of Valley county. He is said
to be all wool, a yard wide, clean of
character, smart as a whip, and has
escaped the smell of fire on his gar
ments. Nothing strange about that;
there are scores of pops with like rec
ords. Hoorah for Sprecher.
Ord Journal: As the time for the
conventions approach, the Journal is
glad to note that the sentiment in
favor of Dr. C. E. Coffin as a candi
date for governor is growing, and that
the candidate from the Big Sixth dis
trict stands a splendid chance of re
ceiving the nomination when the fu
sion forces meet at Grand Island.
While no conventions have yet been
held, many of the workers are ex
pressing, both In the press and letters,
their appreciation of the worth of Mr.
Coffin as a thorough business man,
and an upright gentleman.
Coming as he does, from the Sixth
district, but still near the central por
tion of the state, he lives in the ideal
location to unite all forces, both in
the nominating convention and at the
JOHN C. SPRECHER.
Stanton Register: The fusion state
convention must select their ablest
man for governor, one who is popular
with the voters. We will be badly de
feated if we nominate a man who Is
or has been in any way favored by the
railroads or accepted any favors from
them. The republican candidate will
get the railroad vote and nothing could
save our nominee. Let us nominate
Sprecher and for a state platform have
a demand for raising railroad assess
ment, calling a constitutional conven
tion and to manage the state finances
WILLIAM J. BRYAN.
Senator Allen in Madison Mail: A
very careful study of the political sit
uation satisfies us that the only really
wise thing to be done by the fuslon
ists is to nominate Hon. William J.
Bryan for governor and redeem the
state from republican misrule. With
out the slightest disparagement of
other gentlemen who have announced
their willingness to make the race, all
of whom are well qualified to dis
charge the duties of the office, the
Mall is satisfied that wisdom and pru
dence demand that the democrats and
populists unanimously tender the
nomination to Mr. Bryan and Insist
on his acceptance.
Notwithstanding his defeat In 1900,
he is by long odds the strongest man
in the state. His personal magnetism
exceeds that of any other gentleman
who could be nominated, and his
name would create greater enthusiasm
and bring to the polls more democrats
and populists than the name of any
other candidate whom we have heard
.The Mail sees no force In the argu
ment that the republicans will flood
the state with money to defeat Mr.
Bryan. If they can defeat him with
money they certainly can defeat a
weaker candidate with a less sum of
money, and they can defeat any candi
date with a sufficient amount of
If Mr. Bryan should be elected he
would carry the balance of the ticket
to victory, and the young state of
which we are all proud would be
thoroughly redeemed. Mr. Bryan
would then be placed in a position to
defeat the attempts of the reorgan
izes of the democratic party to con
trol the nomination for the presi
dency In 1904. If he should be de
feated we would know . that we had
had . a fair test of political strength
and would understand "where we are
It Is due to Mr. Bryan to say that we
have had no communication whatever
with him respecting the matter and
do not know what view he will take
of it; but we assume that as a pa
triotic citizen and a loyal son of the
state he would not decline a nomina
tion If it were unanimously tendered
The Mail begs to express the hope
that democratic and populist papers
will take a sober view of the situation
and remember that however much we
may wish to advance the Interests of
some particular and worthy person
and political friend, the political ex
igencies of the situation require the
exercise of a high degree of wisdom
and political foresight.and that in such
circumstances personal preferences
should be laid aside.
RODERICK D. SUTHERLAND.
Chase County Tribune: Judgine
from the tone of the fusion press of
the state, Hon. R. D. Sutherland is
several lengths ahead of all competi
tors in the race for the fusion nomi
nation for governor.
Stockville Faber: R. D. Sutherland
is the choice of the populists and dem
ocrats of Frontier county for gov
ernor. Mr. Sutherland is an able
speaker and has the confidence of the
people. We -believe with a ticket
made up of able known men who are
able to make an aggressive campaign
that victory is ours.
Grand Island Democrat: A number
of candidates of the populist faith are
making an. active canvass for guber
natorial honors. And let us say right
here that such men as Sutherland, Dr.
Damerell, Dr. Coffin and John C.
Sprecher are an honor to any party
and fusionists need not be ashamed of
any one of them as a candidate.
Hastings Public Journal: R. D.
Sutherland is a sure winner for the
nomination in the fusion parties for
governor and he is the only man who
can win out this fall. Go where you
may, Mr. Sutherland is talked of and
people everywhere admit he is the
man. Let every western man line up
and show loyalty and redeem this
state by placing a man whom every
one has faith in at the head of the
CONSTANTINE J. SMYTH.
Crete Democrat: The Polk County
Democrat and other fusion papers are
springing Congressman Stark' for gov
ernor. Don't you do that any more.
The fusion party has lots of timber
for governor, while the Fourth dis
trict can again elect Stark to succeed
himself, and he is too good a man
where he is to think of making a
change. DeWitt Ind. (pop.).
There Is but one man for the fusion
parties to nominate in this district
this year, and that man is Stark. He
will be especially strong this time.
There are many good reasons why the
candidate for governor should be a
democrat and why that democrat is C.
Douglas County Populists
The populist county central com
mittee for Douglas county met at
Washington hall, Omaha, last Satur
day and selected 128 delegates to the
state convention at Grand Island. A
committee composed of E. E. Thomas,
L. J. Quinby, J. J. Points, G. A. Mag
ney, and P. L. Forgan drafted a plat
form which the Douglas delegation
expects to present to the state conven
tion and ask its adoption as the state
platform. Seven subjects 31 para
graphs, each short and to the point
are contained. in the. draft adopted.
It is as follows:
First We reaffirm the Omaha, St.
Louis and Sioux Falls platforms.

perity exists is due to the Increase In
the money volume.

tional and submit an amendment giv
ing the principle general application.

sentation In legislative bodies.

of the metropolitan and first classes
shall frame their own charters.

cluding public service franchises, at

Second We condemn the burning
of two state institutions by i careless

party because it allows corporations
to dominate its policies, nominate its

defaulters, fix their own taxes and
make their own laws. -)
Fourth The people's party will re
turn power to the people. Our candi
dates by the act of accepting nomina
tions agree that they will carry out
this platform to the letter; that they,

pensation for services under any
name, except their constitutional sal
ary. Fifth The people's party gave to the
state the best, safest and most eco

If returned to power we pledge the
people of Nebraska honesty, fidelity,
firmness, economy, ability and progress
in the administration of affairs.

county secretaries in the farmers' al
liance. Second He is a successful business
man with much administrative ability
Third His v character is unblem
ished. He is absolutely honest and
straightforward and will never make
a promise that will not be carried
Such statements are strong, but the
man is stronger than the statements.
He is universally popular and will
make a great "vote getter." Large
numbers of papers in the Big Sixth
congressional' district have taken up
his fight. He will have a backing in
all parts of the state.
Now, a word in regard to his per
sonality. Born in Michigan, he settled
in Nebraska twenty-one years ago anJ
started in by breaking prairie part of
the time and teaching school the rest
of the time. With his earnings he
pursued a thorough course at a medi
cal school and entered upon the prac
tice of his chosen profession with re
markable success at North Loup, Neb.
His spare time was devoted to making
a specialty of nervous diseases in
which department he became recog
nized as proficient.
This led to his being selected Dy
Governor Holcomb as first assistant
physician at the Nebraska , asylum at
Lincoln. And Governor Poynter fur
ther recognized his ability by making
him superintendent of the same Insti
tution. The success of the republicans
at the polls benefitted Ord by sending
him to that city to practice medicine.
A man is worthy of our support it
he has shown that he can do things.
Dr. Coffin accomplished wonders at
the asylum. Every detail of this great
institution was at his finger ends.
No waste of state money was allowed.
Taxpayers' money was spent as care
fully as though it had been his own.
The inevitable result was that the ex
pense of running that asylum and pro
viding for its hundreds of inmates was
REDUCED TO THE LOWEST POINT
KNOWN IN ITS HISTORY, yet we
are proud to say the inmates were nev
er better cared for. A man with this
record put into the governor's chair
would save this state thousands of
dollars of taxes in the management
of the dozen or more state institu
tions. Dr. Coffin thinks the actual value of
railroad property should be ascer
tained and then they should be as
sessed, on the same basis as other
property is assessed. In short, he
stands squarely on the proposition
that every individual and corporation
should bear their honest and just
share of the taxes, no more, no less.
Such characteristics as these make
up a man who would be a credit to our
party and our state. Let's Join hands
with all of the counties . that are back
of him and nominate him.

TOURS IN THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS
A mountain tourist in search of
grand and beautiful scenery finds an
embarrassment of riches In Colorado
and Utah, but if the , names of the
Denver & Rio Grande and the Rio
Grande Western railroads are borne
in mind when planning a trip'there Is
little chanfie of making a mistake or
meeting with disappointment. , .
This is the only route having two
distinct lines through the Rocky
mountains, thus affording the tourist
the advantage of going via one line
and returning via the other. In thi3
manner the trip from Denver, Colo
rado Springs or Pueblo to Grand Junc
tion may be made via the main line,
through the Royal Gorge, Leadville,
over Tennessee Pass, through Eagle
River Canon, Canon of the Granl
River and Glenwood Springs, return
ing via the Black Canon of theGun
nison and Marshall Pass, or vice ver
sa, all through tickets being available
via either route. Tourists to and
from Salt Lake City, Ogden, Portlan.l
or San Francisco, will find it to' their
advantage to have their tickets read
in both directions via "The Scenic
Line of the World" and "The Great
Sale Lake Route," thus securing the f
privilege of using one of the. above f
lines going and the other returning.
The above covers in a general way
the trans-continental portion . of the
Denver & Rio Grande and - the Rio
Grande Western, but it must.be re
membered that this is but a part Of the
entire system. For Instance, the line
from Pueblo over beautiful La Veta
Pass, via the magnificent Toltec Gorge
to Durango, and through the pictur
esque Animas Canon to Silverton, af
fords one of the grandest trips on the
continent. This, in connection , with
the Silverton Railroad and the Ouray
stage line, or with the Rio , Grande
Southern Railroad from Durango to
Ridgway, ' forms the celebrated
"Around the Circle" trip, the remain
der of the journey being made east
ward over the Denver & Rio Grande.
There are also many smaller side
trips that can be made through this
beautiful region. Write S. K. "Hooper,
G. P. & T. A., Denver, Colo., for il
lustrated descriptive pamphlets.
