MEN AND MATTERS
Of coarse John. H. Morehead would not accept the ihsolent and
insultingly worded "challenge" issued by Chester II. Aldrich. And
there are numerous reasons for the declination. First, it is a. waste
of time to debate with a man who is not hampered by facts and who
esn manufacture statistics offhand. Second, Chester II. Aldrich can
not lay the plans and specifications for "progressiveism" and ex
pect men to defend themselves against his charge that they are
'reactionaries,"- horse thieves, hypocrits and plunderers because
t'ley do not agree with said plans and specifications. If the voters
n" Nebraska want a platform attraction for governor they've got it.
If they want a level-headed, progressive, competent chief executive
to attend to the state's enormous business, they have the chance to
secure one by electing John H. Morehead. ,
In the death of Galen J. Richmond, former editor of the Minden
Courier, the newspaper profession loses a member that reflected
credit upon it, and the forces of democracy lose an able and ever
faithful champioh. , "Gale" Richmond was a militant democrat, a
friend to be trusted, an opponent always fair, and a citizen who
never lost opportunity to work for the best interests of his state
and his community. - '
"We stand at Armageddon and we battle for the Lord," de
clares Roosevelt. But it was Paul, a man greater even than Roose
velt, who said: "The weapons of our warfare are not carnel."
And we have a faint suspicion that Dixon, Flinn, MdCormick, et al.,
are not forging any scriptural weapons for Rooseveltian use. ,
The Lincoln Journal continues to misrepresent John H. More
head's attitude towards the initiative and referendum. But it can
not evade the fact that Senator Morehead voted for the law as it
is now before the people for approval. Nor can it disguise the
fact that for political reasons it, and other republicans of its ilk,
pretending to be whole-heartedly for the initiative and referendum,
endeavored to "put the democratic legislature in a hole" by forc
ing it to submit an initiative and referendum proposition that would
be open to attack.
Addressing the State Federation of Labor convention at Fre
mont Governor Aldrich carefully described the kind of a man the
wage earners ought to vote for taking particular care to describe
himself as he thinks himself to be. He then described the kind of
a man they ought not to vote for, taking particular care to describe
Morehead as Aldrich would have the people believe him to be.
Which reminds us that Morehead is a producer, not a parasite;
and that he has paid labor. $100 for every cent his opponent has
paid to labor. ;
The sympathy of every Nebraskan will go out to W. J. Taylor
in the double affliction that has recently befallen him. One talented
daughter the victim of disease, and another daughter, happily
married, a suicide through grief, is a blow indeed such a blow
as no one can understand who has not himself "passed under
the rod." .
The parent reform of all present day political reforms in Ne
braska was the Australian ballot law, enacted by an anti-republican
legislature. The only labor legislation Nebraska has had in two
decades was enacted by a democratic legislature. The only effort
at tax reform in two decades was successfully made by a demo
cratic legislature. It remained for a democratic legislature to enact
an initiative and referendum law. ;For a quarter of a century no
republican legislature took a forward step in liquor legislation,
although the g. o. p. has always claimed to be the party of temper
ance reform, and has always denounced democracy as the "whisky
party.". A democratic legislature gave us the first forward step
in this matter. The state's floating indebtedness was never re
duced a dollar by a republican administration. On the .contrary
each year saw both the tax rate and the indebtedness growing
larger. Democrat-populist administrations reduced the floating
indebtedness and the tax rate. Under the last democratic adminis
tration no state warrant was ever' registered for future payment
because of lack of funds in the state treasury. It has happened
repeatedly under the present republican administration. There
never was a riot or a scandal in prison management under a
democratic administration. Under republican administration the
state prison was the center of a seething mass of political corrup
tion, and under the present republican administration the scene
of a saturnalia of homicides and disorder. Bombast and bluster,
pretense and Pecksniffian posing, will not blind the people to the
truth. ' .
Mr. Morehead proffers a question that Governor Aldrich debate
with himself. By the side of the Aldrichian pretense of superior
political virtue Mr. Morehead places the Aldrich effort to grab
off a lot of perquisites in open violation of the constitution.
Speaking of candidates a man may well be judged by the
esteem in which he is held by his fellow citizens and neighbors.
Well venture the assertion that Morehead will get more votes in
Richardson eounty than Aldrich will get in Butler county, and
we'll allow for any difference there may be in the total vote of
each county. "
THAT OAS CONTROVERSY.
The powers that be of the gas company refuse to compromise
as long as there js any controversy over the legality of the com
pany's franchise. It seems that the only thing to do is to go ahead
with the suit to enforce the dollar gas ordinance, and it doesn't
take much of a mathemetician to figure out that the gas com
pany is going to win, even if it finally loses the case and there
hasn't been much to date to fill gas consumers with hope that
the city will win. It is estimated that the excess charges collect
ed by the company now amount to over $300,000. At five per
cent this amounts to $15,000 a year, and is an item that the gas
company management is not overlooking. It is better than is
suing bonds for $300,000 and paying 5 jer cent interest on them.
It does seem that there ought to be some way of settling this
vexed question amicably and without the expense of a long and
costly litigation. , . .
