THE MANUFACTURERS' ASSOCIATION.
Great interest is being manifested in the forthcoming meeting of
Nebraska manufacturers. The meeting is scheduled for Omaha
and the plan is -to perfect a state organization with a view to ad
vancing the manufacturing interests of the commonwealth. Such an
organization has an unlimited field for good work, to say nothing
of a splendid opportunity to advance the interests of its individual
members. ' Organized and conducted on broad lines, it can foster
state pride, build up a sentiment in favor of patronizing home indus
tries and increase the number of manufacturing plants. Nebraska
has made marvelous strides along industrial lines during the last
decade, but she has scarcely made a fair entry upon her opportuni
ties. Twenty years ago there were not a score of manufacturing
industries in Nebraska employing a hundred or more wage earners.
Now there are several hundred. Twenty years ago the total manu
factured output of the state was probably less than $25,000,000.
This year of 1912 it will exceed $250,000,000. Twenty years from
now, if her people grasp their opportunities, the output will ex
ceed half a billion. Instead of a half-dozen garment factories Ne
braska ought to have scores; instead of two or three shoe factories
she ought to be making more shoes than -Massachusetts because Ne
braska is the chief 'source of supply for hides; she ought to be
grinding more flour than Minnesota, and making more furniture
than Grand Rapids. "With her ability to raise fruits and vegetables
Nebraska ought to be' maintaining the largest canneries in the
country. She is already pushing for first place in the meat packing
industry, and probably becoming the greatest dairying state. Her
annual wool clip would keep thousands of spindles busy in making
the cloth that should be worked up into the finished garments in
Nebraska factories. Marvelously productive of the cereals, she
ought to have the largest cereal mills in the world. .
Few Nebraskans fully grasp the possibilities of Nebraska be
cause they have not studied her resources. The manufacturers'
association could perform a splendid service to the state merely by
starting and carrying on a campaign of education a campaign that
would awaken Nebraskans to a realizing sense of the wonderful
productivity of their own state. When Nebraskans realize what
they have within the borders of their commonwealth, then the real
.wprk of developing Nebraska will begin.
, During the last two weeks Will Maupin's Weekly has added to
its subscription rolls the names of more than a hundred of the most
enterprising and energetic business men of Nebraska. There is room
for several thousand more, however. You send in the subscriptions,
Will Maupin's Weekly will set the pace for boosting Nebraska.
' A Nebraska man insists that it is a bug on the grass that is re
sponsible for the epidemic among horses. This may be true, but there
is no disputing the fact that a bug in the head is responsible for a
lot of voluntary contributions to the newspapers on this subject of
Two startling presidential campaigns have occurred within the
memory of the present generation. The one of 1896, marked b;
fierce contentions; this one of 1912 remarkable for its peace and
quiet. And we rather like this year's campaign the best.
We would walk a long distance to see Roosevelt and John M.
ITarlan in joint debate. We use the word "see" advisedly, for it
wouldn't be heard that is, unless Roosevelt is as big a four-flusher
at the real fighting game as he is at the reform game.
- With the establishment of inter-urban communication will come
a decreased cost of living by bringing the producer and consumer
into closer touch. And the producer will get more for his product
and the consumer will get more for his money.
A state wide election once in two years is plenty often enough.
Once in four years would be a plenty. Vote for proposed constitu

amendments, for that matter.
Don 't forget that Nebraska will soon be fifty years old, and
that the event ought to be celebrated with pomp and circumstance.

fall of the republic. Ilowever, only the candidates are worrying.
Figures are not yet obtainable, but we'll wager that Nebraska's
per capita production of wealth for the year 1912 will be greater
than that of any other state west of the Mississippi river.
King Ak-Sar-Ben is a mighty big monarch, but, then, he has to

No, Lincoln's ball team didn't win the pennant, but it did make

satisfied with the policy of the owner and manager, and confident
that next year will see improvements all along tile line.

of that dollar again. Send the dollar abroad, and small chance
you have of ever seeing it within reaching distance.
