A TRAVELING MAN FOR RAILWAY COMMISSIONER.
When the democrats nominated Clarence E. Harman for rail
way commissioner they nominated a man who knows the facts from
the peoples standpoint. lie is
a traveling man wno was born id
southwestern Nebraska, grew un
and was educated in Nebraska,
and has been traveling as a sales
man in Nebraska for many years.
He is not a lawyer, bnt he doe
know a lot about the practical
side of t Kings. He knows what
the traveling public wants and
deserves to have, and what the
freight payers want and deserve
to have. The two hold-over mem
oers of the commission hail front
within fifty miles of the Missouri
river. Mr. Harman hails from
the southwestern part of the state.
His election will more equally dis
titlbute the representation noon
the commission. He is a man of
splendid ability, a tireless worker and pledged to give the people
an intelligent, common-sense administration of the office. The voters
should remember that the railway commission deals with other than
railroad questions. It has to do with all the public service cor
porations. Clarence E. Harman is fitted by experience and ability
to give the people intelligent serviee.

part of the state. He . studied law while working at anything he
could find to do to earn an hosent livelihood, and was admitted -to
the bar. He practiced in northwestern Nebrsaka for a number
of years, and his reputation for ability soon extended beyond the
bounds of the state. Handling important eases involving larc in
terests, he found himself, pitted against the foremost attorneys of
Nebraska and adjoining states, and he always gave a satisfactory
account of himself. " About two years ago he removed from Valen
tine, where he had had practiced for a number of years, and located
in Lincoln. Last spring his friends in the northwest insisted opoa
his filing for the demorcatic nomination for attorney general, and .
he yielded. His standing as an attorney and as a citizen amoa

years, was attested by the handsome vote given him, and be was

standing at the bar is evidenced by the respect in which he is held

Nebraska has more things to be proud of than any other state.
She ought to be making every one of them known to all the world.
Nebraska is remiss in her duty to herself when she fails to advertise
her resources and possibilities to the remotest corners of the earth.
Nebraska has some mighty big things, thank yon.
She has the largest creamery plant in the world.
Her largest city, Omaha, is the greatest butter market in th
world. . -
She has the third largest packing center in the world.
She has the second largest smelter in the world. '
She is the third largest corn producer.
She is the third largest dairying state, and promises to be the
largest inside of ten years.
. Her annual egg output is worth more than the gold output
any state or territory.
Her annual butter, egg and poultry output is worth mere thaw
the gold and silver output of any two states or territories.
Her annual output of eorn and wheat is worth more than the
nation's annual output of crude petroleum,
Her annual output of grains and grasses is worth more than the
coal output of Pennsylvania.
Her annual corn output is worth more than the nation's asnwal
output of copper.

ANOTHER BOOST FOR UNCOLK.
The great Beeves Co.. which makes engines and thresher and
such things, has been convinced that Lincoln is the logical dw
tibuting center for their line of goods. As a result they have let
a contract for a warehouse and ofliee building to cost $40,000. The
new building will be located on the Northwestern tracks and will
be one of the best buildings of the kind in the country.
And oue of the things that makes us tired is the action of the
city authorities in hampering such companies as the Reeves Co. by
issuing orders that they must not run their big traction engine over
the paved streets. Pray how are these people to do business if they
are not allowed to get their goods out of the warehouses? And who
is paying for that pavement, anyhow f We wish there was enough
business in Lincoln to wear out every foot of pavement every year
or two. They can't wear the pavement out any too fast to soil aw,
providing they do it by reason of enormous business traffic. It
about time we canned a few of the men of this city. who. having:
enough for themselves, are trying to make it almighty hard for
the rest of us to get something. Let's think a lot more about build

Nebraska did not make much of a showing in the matter of
increased railroad mileage during the last twelve months. Th
Union Pacific laid a few miles of double track and is building a
new line up through ScottsblurT -county. The Fnion Pacific is also
building between Hastings and Gibbon. But five Nebraska counties
eontinTte to be without railroad mileage, while four or five have
Jiess than thirty miles each.
