    Republican, Democratic and Populist
State Conventions.
The Respective Meetings highly Harmonious, AH
Nominations Having Previously Been Made
in Recent State Primary Election.
The republican state convention
■which met in Lincoln on the 24th,
presided over by Gov. Sheldon, had
but little to do but to frame a plat
form and appoint the state central
committee, as nominations had been
made in the primaries. Two sessions
were held, both short, the last of
which put forth the following as
The Republican Platform. •
As the representatives of the repub
licans of Nebraska, in state convention
assembled, we again commend the in
spiring character and undaunted lead
ership of Theodore Roosevelt. We es
pecially indorse what he has accom
plished. with the support of a repub
lican congress, toward subjecting the
overweening railroads engaged in in
terstate commerce to the regulating
arm of the government and in curbing
the rapacity of the lawless trusts by
forcing them to desist from their crim
inal practices. These policies have our
unqualified approval and In order tliai
no backward step be taken, we will
insist that his successor lie a man
whose record pledges a continuance or
the distinctive polices of the Roosevelt
While not presuming to forestall tlte
action of any future convention, we
express the belief that the republicans
of Nebraska recognize in the Honor
able William H. Taft of Ohio one
whose personal character and whose
long public servtcg mark him as pre
eminently the man under whose lead
ership these policies would be perpetu
ated. We indorse the present state
administration. State affairs are be
ing conducted with integrity and sa
gacity. Our public institutions are be
ing neither injured by parsimony nor
scandalized by profligacy.' The state's
credit is high, and its long standing
debt is being rapidly extinguished and
will soon be paid. Its public school
funds are growing enormously and be
ing wisely invested in interest-bearing
We commend our republican delega
tion in congress for their faithful rep
r sentation of the interests of the peo
ple of Nebraska. We especially com
mend the last legislature for faithfully
fulfilling republican pledges made to
the people. It was a record of legisla
tive fidelity without precedent in Ne
The platform pledges of political
parties mean something only when
read in the light of the record of
achievement. It is our rare privilege
to call attention anew to the platform
promulgated by Nebraska repnnilcans
a year ago. whose every promise has
been carried out in scrupulous gooo
faith. The .republicans promised the
peopel of this state the following re
1. A state-wide direct primary.
1. Abolition of the free pass evil.
3. Comprehensive powers for the state
railway commission.
4. More equitable rates or transpor
tation of passengers and freight.
5. Equal taxation of railroad prop
erty for city, purposes.
6. Abolition of fellow servant law
and full employer’s liability.
7. A pure food and dairy law.
S. Rigid economy in appropriations.
Every one of these pledges has been
We express our satisfaction with the
operation of the new primary law. It
gives to. tlie individual the same equal
voice in the selection of all candidates
that is given in the election that fol
lows. Its first experiment was to ob
tain a freer and fuller expression of
sentiment than has heretofore been
possible to obtain under the caucus
system. We pledge such amendments
to the law as experience demonstrates
are necessary to make It a more per
fect system of choosing candidates.
We Indorse the work of the state
railway commission and expect it to
continue to be a serviceable instru
ment in enforcing the laws without
fear or favor and to deal speedily, im
partially and justly with all com
plaints against the roads. And we
especially indorse the present efforts
of the commission to effect a reason
able additional reduction in gram
rates. We call upon the railway com
mission to investigate if only those
giving the railways "the major portion
of their time” are on ghe list of pass
holders, and we insist upon a rigid en
forcement of the anti-pass law.
We believe the federal judiciary law
should be amended to define the citi
zenship of interstate corporations for
the purposes of jurisdiction of federal
courts by providing that for the pur
poses of original jurisdiction and juris
diction on removal from state courts,
or federal courts, a corporation shall be
deemed a citizen of every state where
It has filed or is required by the law
of that state to file in the manner re
quired of domestic corporations, its ar
ticles of incorporation. And in addi
tion thereto tiiat every foreign corpo
ration, or its successors, assigns, or
lessees, exercising or claiming the
right of eminent domain, under a state
law, shall be deemed a citizen of that
state for the purposes of jurisdiction
- of federal courts.
We favor the enactment of a federal
law, and. if necessary, an amendment
to the federal constitution, which will
forbid the federal courts from issuing
writs of injunction against statp offi
cers charged by law with the enforce
ment of state statutes.
We regard with high favor the nom
inees of our state ticket, and invite all
voters who believe in official probity
and efficiency to join in electing them.

Believing, with Jefferson, in "the
support of the state- governments in
all their rights and the most com
petent administrations for our domes
tic concerns and the surest bulwark
against anti-republican tendencies,
and in “tlie preservation of the general

and intolerable. We, liienfore. favor
the vigorous enforcement of the crim
inal law against trusts and trusr
magnates, and demand tlie enactment
of such additional legislation as may
be necessary to make it impossible for
a private monopoly to exist in toe
United States. Among the additional
remedies we specify three: First, a
law compelling corporations engaged
in interstate commerce to sell to alt
purchasers in all parts of the country
on the same terms, after making due
allowance for cost of carriage; second,
a law preventing the duplication or
directors among competing corpora
tions; and third, a system
which will, without abridging the
right of each state to create corpora
tions. or its right to regulate us it
will foreign corporations doing busi
ness within its-limits, make it neces
sary for all manufacturing and trad
ing corporations engaged in interstafe
commerce to take out a federal license
before it shall be permitted to control
as much as 25 per cent of the product
in which it deals, the license to pro
tect the public from watered stock and
to prohibit tile control by such corpo
ration of more than 50 per cent of the
total amount of any produce consumed
in the United States.
We insist upon the recognition of the
distinction between the natural man
and the artificial person, called a cor
poration. and we favor the enactment
of such law as may be necessary to
compel foreign corporations to submit
their legal disputes to the courts of
the states in whirh they do business,
and thus place themselves upon the
same footing as domestic corporations.
We favor an immediate revision of
the tariff by the reduction of import
duty. Articles entering into competi
tion with articles controlled by trusts
should be placed upon the fre^ list;
material reductions should be. made in
the tariff upon all necessaries of lire,
and reductions should be made in such
other schedules as may be necessary to
restore the tariff to a revenue basis.
We favor an income tax as a part of
our revenue system, and we urge the
submission of a constitutional amend
ment specifically authorising eongress
to levy and collect a tax upon individ
ual and corporate incomes, to the cno
that wealth may bear its proportion
ate share of the burdens of the federal
government. We favor a national in
heritance tax to reach the "swollen
fortunes" already in existence, but we
believe that it is better to permanently
prevent "swollen fortunes" hy abolish
ing the privileges and favoritism upon
which they are based.
We assert the right of eongress to
exercise complete control over inter
state commerce, and we assert the
right of each state to exercise just as
complete control over commerce with
in its borders. We demand, such an
enlargement of the powers of national
and state railway commissions as may
be necessary to give full protection to
persons and places from discrimina
tion and extortion. We believe that
both the nation and the various states
should, first, ascertain the present
value of the railroads, measured by
the cost of reproduction; second, pro
hibit the issue of any more watered
stock or fictitious capitalization; third,
prohibit the railroads from engaging in
any business which brings them into
competiton with their shippers; ana
fourth, redure transportation rates
until they reach a point where they
will yield only a reasonable return on
the present value of the roads—sucri
reasonable return being defined as a
return sufficient to keep the stoeg or
the roads at par when such -roads are
honestly capitalized. To supplement
the reductions made by the various
states in passenger rates, we favor an
act of congres requiring the railroads
to sell interstate tickets at a rate not
exceeding the sum of the local rate.
We favor th? establishment of state
and national boards of arbitration
which shall have authority to investi
gate. cither upon their own initiative

The democrats gathered in the sen
ate chamber, where organization was
perfected. Ererything passed off
smoothly, there being no hitch or lack
of harmony in the proceedings. W. J.
Bryan delivered an earnest political
address but the convention refrained
from endorsing him for president.
There was some little conflict in nam
ing the ^tate committee, but the bus
iness was soon got through with in
a highly satisfactory manner. In gen
eral there was no disposition to fuse
between the democratis and the popu
lists in the convention. Each party I
paddled its own canoe without con
. ferences. Following is
The Democratic Platform.
We. the democratic party of Ne
braska. in delegate convention as

dence in. and admiration for. Honor
able William ejnnings Bryan; and re
nsert our fidelity to the principles
which he bap so ably advocated, ana
which at this time are so generally
accepted by a large majority of the
people of the United States.
We rejoice at the increasing signs
of a moral awakening in the United
States. Tlie Various investigations
have traced graft and political cor
ruption to the representatives of pred
atory wealth and laid bare the un
scrupulous methods by » which they
have debauched elections and preyed
upon a defenseless public through the
subservient officials whom they have
raised to place and power. The con
science of the nation is now awak
ened and must not sleep until the
government Is freed from the grip of
those who have made It a business as
set of the favor-seeking corporations;
It must become again "a movement of
the people, by the people and for the
, people,” and be administered In all Us
and capital.
We favor the eight hour day.
We are opposed to "government by
injunction." the system under whlcn
the writ of injunction is used to deny
to laboring men the protection of trial
by jury. We favor full protection, by
both national and state governments
within their respective spheres, or alt
foreigners residing in the United
States, under treaty, but we are op
posed to the admission of Asiatic emi
grants who can not be amalgamated
with our population, or whose pres
ence among us would raise a race is
sue and involve us in diplomatic con
troversies with oriental parties.
We welcome Oklahoma to the sister
hood of states and heartily congratu
late her upon the auspicious beginning
of her great career.
We favor separate statehood for Ari
zona and New Mexico, and demand for
the people of Porto Rico the full en
joyment of the rights and privileges of
a territorial fortri of government.
We sympathize with the efforts put
forth for the reclamation of the arid
lands of the west, and urge the largest
possible use of irrigation in the devel
opment of the country.
We favor the speedy completion of
the Panama canal.
We favor a generous per.siojf policy,
both as'a matter of justice to the sur
viving veterans and their dependants
and because it relieves the country ot
the necessity of maintaining a large
standing army.
We condemn the experiment in im
perialism as an inexcusable blunder,
which has involved us in an enormous
expense, brought us weakness in
stead of strength, and laid our nation
open to the charge of abandoning the
fundamental' doctrine of self-govern
ment. We favor an immediate decla
ration of the nation's purpose to rec
ognize tiie independence of the Philip
pines as «oon as a stable government
can be established, such independence
to be guaranteed by us. as we guar
antee the independence of Cuba, until
the neutralization of the islands can be

In recognizing the independence of the
Philippines our government should re

nation should announce Its determlna- •

Destroyed His Status.
Within the last month there was
displayed in the fine arts hall of ihe
Tokio indust, ial exhibition a marble
statue of a young girl bending over a
lower which she held in her hand.
Its sculptor, Shikai Kltamura, becom
ing incensed at the jurors who were
to make the awards, determined to
punish them by destroying his statue.
So he got a chisel and mallet, went
to the hall and knocked off the head
and arms of the statue before he could
bo stopped.

world better is to begin with our

good is the threshold of doing good.
Corks Made from Paper.
A machine for making corks out of
wa3te paper an dpaper pulp has re
cently been perfected and patented.
This machine makes corks out of all
kinds of waste paper, which are much
superior to the ordinary corks, as
they are impervious to acids or oils.
Tests made by chemists and the
larger users of corks say they are far
superior to the old style in every way.

What, will appear very interesting
to many people here is the article
taken from a New York daily paper,
giving a simple prescription, as formu
lated by a noted authority, who claims
that he has found a positive rem
edy to cure almost any case of back
ache or kidney or bladder derange
ment, in the following simple prescrip
tion, if taken before the stage of
Bright’s disease:
Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half
ounce; Compound Kargon, one ounce;
Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla, three
ounces. Shake well in a bottle and
take in teaspoonful doses after each
meal and again at bedtime.
A well-known authority, when asked
regarding this prescription, stated
that the ingredients are all harmless,
and can be obtained at a small cost
from any good prescription pharmacy,
or the mixture would be put up if
asked to do so. He further stated that
while -this prescription is often pre
scribed in rheumatic afflictions with
splendid results, he could see no rea
son why it would not be a splendid
remedy for kidney and urinary trou
bles and backache, as it has a peculiar
action upon the kidney structure,

filter from the blood the foul acids

She marveled at everything until

had gone into the Astor house for that

lost on the visiting country hostess, as
she looked open-eyed at the crowds

Pure Food.
The pure food law does not prohibit
the sale of Cream of Tartar Baking
Powders because Cream of Tartar is
as pure as Alum—but it is a well
known fact that a baking powder in
which Alum is used instead of Cream of
Tartar is less injurious. Dr. Herman
Reinbold, the expert German chemist,
in a recent official report concerning
Baking Powders, declares that a pure
Alum baking powder is better and less
injurious than the so-called Cream of
Tartar powders. He says that if the
quantity of alum contained in a suf
ficient quantity of baking powder for
a batch of bread or cakes for an ordi
nary family, be concentrated to one
mouthful of food, and taken into the
stomach of any one person, no matter
how delicate, it could do no harm.

The Winnipeg (Canada) Free Press
of a few days since contains account
of the success that followed the ef
forts of William Knowles, an English
man who located near Winnipeg, Man
itoba. This is but one of many let
ters giving experiences of settlers,
and should be encouraging to those
who are looking about for a new
home in which they may better their
conditions. The following is a copy
of the article referred to:
William Knowles, who cultivates
some twelve acres of land just below
Middlechurch ferry on east side of the
Red River has probably as fine a dis
play of horticultural products as any
in Manitoba. The whole of his hold
ing is in a high state of cultivation
and literally crowded with splendid
vegetable specimens, which have for
tunately escaped damage by hail, al
though heavy storms have more thau
once occurred within a few miles. The
potatoes are a wonderful crop, and he
expects to raise 1,500 bushels from
his patch of 4</2 acres. A half dozen
of tubers selected yesterday average
more than a pound each. Adjoining
the potatoes may be seen a marvelous
collection of tomatoes. There are 600
plants, all growing under an enor
mous weight of fruit. One single
stock picked yesterday contained
eighteen tomatoes and weighed four
pounds. This extraordinary example
of marvelous growth, together with
some of the potatoes were sent to the
Free Press office.
The proprietor was the first in
town with several specimens, includ
ing green corn. The season has been
favorable for onions, and one square
patch of nearly an acre is looking re
markably healthy. In addition there
are good crops of cabbages, cauliflow
er, turnips, parsnips, carrots, pump
kins, marrows, cucumbers, celery, peas,
lettuce, rhubarb, etc. The floral de
partment has not been neglected and
a charming display of all the well
known blooms were shown, including
a specially choice lot of asters.
Mr. Knowles, who gained most of
his gardening experience in England,
is loud in his praise of Manitoba soil
for vegetable raising, and is gratified
with the result of his first attempt at
extensive horticulture.
“I suppose your family had a good
time in Europe.”
“Well,” answered Mr. Cumrox, “I
don’t think mother and the girls en
joyed themselves all the time. You
see, they had so much trouble figuring
foreign money back into dollars that
every now and then they were em- j
barrassed by finding they had acci
dentally ordered something that
wasn’t expensive.”

Women Avoid
When a woman suffering from
female trouble is told that an oper
ation is necessary, it, of course,
frightens her.
The very thought of the hospital,
the operating table and the knife
strikes terror to her heart.
It is quite true that these troub
les may reach a stage where an ope
ration is the only resource, but a
great many women have been cured
by Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable
Compound after an operation has
been decided upon as the only cure.
The strongest, and most grateful
statements possible to make come from women who by taking
Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound
made from native roots and herbs, have escaped serious operations, ar,
evidenced by Miss Rose Moore's case, of 307 W. 26 th tit.. N.Y. She writes:
Dear Mrs. Pinkham:-“Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has
cured me of the very worst form of female trouble and I wish to express
to yon my deepest gratitude. I suffered intensely for two years so that
I was unable to attend to my duties and was a burden to my family. I
doctored and doctored with only temporary relief and constantly objecting
to an operation which I was advised to undergo. I decided to try Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound; it cured me of the terrible trouble
and I am now in better health than I have been for many years.”
This and other such cases shonld encourage every Woman to try Ly
dia B. Pinkham’s V ege table Compound before she submits to an operation.
Mrs. Pinkham’s Standing Invitation to Women
Women suffering from any form of female weakness are invited to
promptly communicate with Mrs. Pinkham. at Lynn, Mass. From the
symptoms given, the trouble may be located and the quickest and surest
way of recovery advised.
