It is safe to assume that Porfiro Diaz
will not endeavor to "come back."
AVill Maupin's Weekly will oppose for
re-election any Nebraska congressman or
senator who fails to vote for free wool.
Senator Cummins of Iowa has just dis
covered that the problem of problems is
that of distribution. The senator seems to
be catching up.
Justice Harlan's dissenting opinion is
all that keeps us from holding quite a bit
of contempt for the supreme court's de
cision in the Standard Oil case. .
Before Mr. Taft's friends wear them
selves out looking for a running mate'for
him, they would better wait a bit and see
whether Mr. Taft will deem it advisable
Will Maupin's "Weekly is for reciprocity
as a steppingstone to the reaj thing ab
solute and unconditional free trade. It
is opposed to raising revenue by taxing
enterprise and consumption.
The "grandfather clause" of the Okla
homa constitution, disfranchising ne
groes, has been declared unconstitutional
by the supreme court of the United Stal es.
Oklahoma democrats enacted that law
hoping to make Oklahoma solidly demo
cratic forever It came almighty near
making Oklahoma a republican state, foe
it relieved a lot of voters of the fear of
Either Mr. Wells of Omaha should be
suppressed or the necessity for such a.
scheme as Wells advocates removed.
A trust that does not "unduly restrict"
competition is all right. The trust is left
to decide what is "unduly restrictive."
Governor Wilson is not seeking a presi
dential nomination, but he is not taking
down any lightning rods erected over him
by admiring friends.
Acquitting a drink-crazed man for in
discriminately shooting in a crowded
court room is enforcing the "unwritten
law" a bit too strenuously.
The only funny thing about the "comic
supplements" of the Sunday newspapers
is the fact that they are called "comic."
A lion escaped while Omaha Shriners
were conducting an initiation. No dam
age was sustained. After the initiation
the "tiger" wounded a few.
We'll bet a half-dollar that "Bet a Mil
lion" Gates will be presented with a cer
tificate of membership in the Ananias
Club just as soon as Roosevelt can find his
There are those still living who remem
ber the whig slogan of 1856 : "Free speech,,
free press, free soil and Fremont !" "Free
wool" should be the slogan of every con
sumer in 1911.
We are told that before retiring Presi
dent Diaz took an agent of Madero into
the government treasury vaults and
showed him $60,000,000 worth of gold.
What was the matter with it bars too
heavy to be carried away?
Let's see, the law prohibits ball playing
on Memorial Day, but we note that some
gentlemen of the Lincoln Country Club
joyfully played golf for a trophy. But'
not all of us are able to get into the social
Mr. Roosevelt has been cited to appear
and tell what he knows about that Ten
nessee Coal and Iron case. It will not
take him long. But if he explains in de
tail how he was "worked ot a finish" by
the smooth guys who engineered that
deal he will be on the stand for a week.
Some of these days Nebraska will have
a legislature willing to spend enough
money to care for the real needs of the
state and unwilling to make a record for
"economy" by starving state wards, neg
lecting state property and refusing to
pay decent salaries to public officials.
Some of these days, we say; but being
well along towards middle age we scarce

"peanut politics" is not over in Nebraska.
