service depends upon the number
of people that can be reached. Two
exchanges in the same community
divide the service and require a
subscriber to pay for two telephones
in order to reach all subscribers, or
to pay for one telephone and re
eive only one-half the service. !
We are consolidating the exchanges and
toll line service in the South Platte section
of Nebraska as fast as possible. As soon as
these consolidations are completed you will
be able to reach all the subscribers in Neb
raska and have all possible toll line connect
ions with one telephone and for one price.
Our aim is to connect together all ex
change and toll line systems in Nebraska so
that one universal service may be given. ,

ISN'T THIS CHILD'S PLAY?
The attorneys representing the Babcock interests in the Loup
river power project have secured from Judge Thomas of Platte
county an injunction restraining the Koenig-Sharp interests from
iurther pushing their contest of the Babcock filing.
Will Maupin's "Weekly is not particularly interested in what
group of men secure the advantage, its chief concern being to have
the matter speedily adjusted and the development of the great pro
ject begun. It has expressed its friendship for Mr. Babcock because
of his devotion for years to the development of the great power
project. But it does not particularly matter which of the contesting
groups secures a decision from the state board, for the matter will
iinally have to be adjudicated in a court of equity. Hence we opine
that this resort to the injunction is rather in the nature of child's
play. It can serve only to further delay a project already delayed
too lone. This newspaper never did have much use for the injunc
tion writ anyway. It is high time that the state board get down to
business on this matter. It will be a crime against the state to
have this great work delayed by attempts at "playing politics" with
it. Let the board decide between the contestants, then let the matter
be taken into the courts where it will eventually go and there
be threshed out speedily. There are factory wheels a plenty awaiting
motive power from the electricity to be generated by the Loup
river power project. Let's permit neither politics nor child's play
to further postpone definite action.
NEBRASKA SNUBBED, AS USUAL.
Everybody's Magazine for June has a handsomely illustrated
and well written article on apple growing in the United States. It
mentions the growth of the orcharding industry, then proceeds to
tell about the great apple growing regions of the country.
BUT THE GREATEST APPLE GROWING SECTION OP THE
BEPUBLIC IS NOT MENTIONED AT ALL.
Everybody's signally fails to say a word about Nebraska, yet
Nebraska raises the finest apples grown in America, and has more
lands adapted to apple growing than almost any other state.
Nebraska orchards yield better than the orchards of Washing
ton or Oregon, and the cost of bringing an orchard to bearing,
including the initial cost of the land, is far less than in any of the
northwestern states. Nebraska orchards do not have to be irrigated
They are nearer the big markets than the orchards of the northwest.
There are no finer apples grown anywhere than the apples grown in
But it is easy to understand why Everybody's failed to mention
Nebraska. Nebraska has not been mentioning herself. Other states
have been advertising their resources and possibilities while Nebraska
has been drifting along in the progressive procession.
As with apples, so with all other crops. Other states are con
tinually advertising their productivity, with the result that they
are atracting homeseekers and investors. Nebraska is doing nothing.
One never sees Nebraska's name mentioned in magazines save in
connection with politics. Yet Nebraska has them all bested in the
production of agricultural products per acre, and the value of
products per capita.
Is it not high time that Nebraska get into the game and let the
world know her for what she is the most productive state in the

DEMOCBATS GO TO GRAND ISLAND.
The democratic state central committee in session at Lincoln
last Tuesday selected Grand Island as the place of holding the state
convention, and William H. Thompson was unanimously chosen for
temporary chairman. The basis of representation is one delegate for
every 150 votes or major fraction thereof cast for Bryan in 1908,
with one delegate at large for each county. The delegates at large
and district delegates were authorized to select their own alternates.
An effort to instruct all delegates for Clark was overruled, although
the delegates at large were so instructed. As this had already been
done at the primary the reason for the resolution is not apparent.
A New York man offers to bet $50,000 that Roosevelt would be
declared insane if examined by the three leading alienists of the
country. But be that as it may, what would become of the country
pending an agreement among the alienists as to which three of them
are the leaders T
Lincoln entertains many conventions, but none of them is of
more importance or productive of greater results to he city and
state, then the one she entertains next week the Nebraska Press
