THE EDITORIAL CONVENTION.
Once more Lincoln has attempted to properly entertain the
newspaper men and women of Nebraska. However short the city
may have fallen in its endeavors, it at least did its best. It went
its limit in an effort to show its appreciation of the men and women
who are working day and night for the upbuilding of Nebraska.
Lincoln wants the good will, the supporting friendship of the
newspaper men and women of Nebraska. It wants them to know
that it appreciates their powerful influence for good, their splendid
work in the upbuilding of the commonwealth. It frankly admits
that it needs their friendship and support, and that it is actuated
by enlighened self-interest when it goes its limit in entertaining
them within its gates. It would be rank foolishness to claim any
thing else. The editors eould not be deceived thereby, but would
penetrate the deception and cheerfully resent it. So Lincoln admits
that it has a motive. It wants to show its appreciation of the many
supporting efforts put forth in its behalf by the newspapers of Ne-'
braska, and it wants to give the newspaper people every opportunity
to see that that support has been merited.
When Nebraska editors and publishers come to Lincoln they
ought to know that they have come to their own. They are not
guests in the strict meaning of that word. It is their capital city;
it is a city they have been important factors in making; it is a city
that they are, or ought to be, interested in. Lincoln could plug
along without their friendship, but it would just plug along. With
their friendship it can, and will, grow and prosper as befits her
place as the second city of the commonwealth and its political
Lincoln hopes that the editors recently within her gates enjoyed
themselves to the limit. If it failed in any respect as a host, it
was through sheer inability to go any further in the effort to make
good. ' : f .
Col. M. A. Bates, editor, of the Plattsmouth Journal, has just
celebrated his 70th birthday. Col. Bates is old only in number of
years. He is one of thsoe who never grow old in spirit. He has
kept his heart young through all the years, and as a result he
is always cheerful, always active and always working for the com
mon good. He is publishing one of the best newspapers in Ne
braska, putting into its columns the ripened experience of a half
century of newspaper hustling. We have known Col. Bates for
many years, and we hope that he will be privileged to know him
for many years to come. Here's hoping he lives another seventy
Kansas is throwing her usual bluff about wanting 30,000 harvest
hands. Kansas, of course, does not need them. We 'harvest more
wheat per capita in Nebraska than Kansas does, yet we manage to
get along without "four-flushing" about it. It is a part of the
Kansas advertising methods. Maybe it pays and maybe not. But
it is a sure thing that Kansas does profit by her publicity campaign,
and Nebraska ought to get into the running. But Nebraska is not
going to try and delude honest workers by any such guff as Kansas
gets off every year about wanting harvest hands.
No apologies are offered for the dull appearance of Will Mau
pin's Weekly this week. Once a year the editor foregathers with his
professional brethren, and the first three days of the present week
were the days. And we insist on having at least a week to recover
from the effects of it. When we were younger we could get over
'em in a couple of days. !
Roosevelt is a great precedent buster, vet he isn't. t.n IW
to betray friends, sacrifice the interests of others and swallow hia
own solemn utterances in order to advance his personal ambitions. "
We need more development of Nebraska's natural resources and
a curtailment of the natural cussedness of those who "knock" on
every proposed enterprise.
Swat the "knockers" and "kickers" and "grouches!"
Swat the fly!
Heaven only knows what kind of a toastmaster Will Owen
Jones might have made had he been allowed to go through with it.
The money sent abroad to purchase articles that are made or
sold at home is merely kissing goodby the money that ought to be
kept at home to build up the business institutions of Nebraska.
The sight of a host of Nebraskans starting on a big trip and
taking a railroad that doesn't get a mile into Nebraska territory,
would have been disappointing. It will not be seen, however.
Nebraskans are beginning to appreciate the wisdom of standing by

Lineoln was mighty proud to entertain the Nebraska editors and
editresses. But try as she may, Lincoln can make but small return
to the newspapers of the state for all the favors they havej shown
thes Capital City.
"Capital removal" is a pretty good subject for those editors
who are disinclined to hustle around for real live news, or prone to
seek editorial subjects for discussion that do not require deep thinking.
Here's more power to the Lincoln health department! It is
doing good work, and it ought to have a free hand and ample
means to prosecute its campaign for public safety.
Those Nebraska editors who still have sizzling banquet speeches
stored up in their systems need not feel lonesome. We've had many
a one corked up within ns.

It's the Soles of the people I keep in view,
For I am the doctor of Boot and Shoe,
And I serve the living and not the dead,
With the best of leather, wax, nails and thread,
I can sew on a sole, or nail it fast,
And do a good job and make it last.
There is nothing Snide about what I can do
Doubt not my statement, for work proves it true.
I can give you a lift, too, in this life
Not only you, but your family and wife.
A great many patients come, to my door
Worn out and run. down, besides feeling sore;
Though I don't use poultice, plaster or pill,
I can cure all sick shoes, no matter how ill.
