At the meeting of the state lumber
man’s association at Lincoln last
week, resolutions endorsing Pinchot
were passed, but without censure df
the administration.
Hairless Jim Dahlman has tiled as
democratic candidate for governor.
If nerve were the only thing neces
sary, nothing could keep him from
winning hands down.
C. O. Wheedon of Lincoln thinks
he will just tit Elmer Burkett’s sena
torial shoes and his thinker has
caused him him to believe he can win
and so announces his candidacy. We
may be pardoned if we doubt it with
the biggest kind of a doubt.
Judge Gaslin, well known here and
in judicial circles over the state, died
at Alma last Friday night. Old
timers here relate many anecdotes of
the eccentric old judge, whose history
would make mighty interesting read
The dismissal of Gifford Pincliot,
chief of the forestry service, by Presi
dent Taft, has stirred the country
from one end to the other, as no
other incident has done. The dis
missal of Pinehot is taken by the
people as meaning sympathy with
Ballinger by the president and a
whack at the insurgent element. This
together with the reported holding
up of the wished for appointments
of the insurgent congressmen and the
sympathetic, relations said to exist
between the president and the regu
lars, headed by the Aldrich-Cannon
combine, has raised the tensest feel
ing at Washington and gives the look
of causing a wide split, that may
prove a chasm over which the regu
lars and insurgents cannot bridge,
however much they may wish to do
so. However, later reports are to the
effect that a conference between the
leaders on both sides has had the
effect of smoothing the rough places
and that the proposed caucus of re
publicans in congress, at which it is
promised the regulars will meet the
insurgents amicably and with the
view of adjusting the rather loud
smelling differences, will have the
effect of healing the breech made be
tween the two opposing factions.
It is claimed by the insurgents that
their tight is on Cannonism, with its
arbitrary rulings and kingly preroga
tive, and not on the administration,
which latter they say they have no
contention with, while the president
is reported to claim that he is not
nor has been holding up the wishes
of insurgents in order to drive them
into the regulars' strongbox. How
ever that may be, the insurgent
element claim that they will tight to
the* last ditch rather than to allow
of Cannon dictation, and propose t hat
the speaker shall be shorn of the
power of committee appointments
and the same to be made by election
of house members, the present meth
od of committee appointments by the
speaker proving to be little less than
giving the speaker the absolute power
of controlling legislation, by reason
of his being able to make appoint
ments of members he can control in
the interests of the trusts and com
bines, of whom he is the most servile
agent. Thus it will be seen that the
situation at the headquarters of the
government is most startling, unless
the good common sense of the ma
jority of the members of the two
houses shall be such as to bring the
matter out according to justice in
the eyes of the great mass of the
adherents of the dominant party.
We shall see.
The Lincoln Daily Star seems to be

And now it is Gilbert M. Hitchcock
of the Omaha World-Herald who pro
poses to contest with Burkett for
the latter's seat in the ser.ate.
Gilbert insists that Bryan would not
have the gift of the nomination at
the hands of Nebraska democracy
for any reason whatever, and that he,
Hitchcock, is just about the fit for

ning of the year, otherwise a grand
jury cannot be called during that

A new federal anti-lottery law went
into effect on the first of this montli
which is quite strict and quite severe
as to penalties for its violation. The
substance of it is that the mails can
not be used in any way to promote
any lottery or gift enterprise what
ever, and the penalty is a tine of not
more than $1,000, or not more than
two years imprisonment, or both.
Newspapers are particularly enjoined
not to publish any advertisement of
a lottery or to announce the results
of such lottery. Any raffle or prize
scheme of any sort which depends
wholly or in part on chance, is ckissed
as a lottery in the meaning of the
law.—Albion News.
A Roast on High Schools
At the superintendent's and prin
cipal's educational meeting at Lin
coln last week, Dean Davis of the
State University gavd an address
criticising the work done in the high
schools. Such criticisms have often
been made before and little or no
attention was given to them, but
when a man so high in authority,
having had years of experience with
the best of the high school product,
and speaking on the authority of
practically all the professors in the
university, makes the charge, it is
time to take notice, is this charge
true and what are the people going to
do about it? There is too much time
and money spent on the high school
to say nothing of the more important
ethical question involved to permit
such a condition to continue. What
have the high school pupils to say
for themselves? The following is
copied from the Lincoln Daily Star*
That high school students of Ne
braska cannot think, draw correct
conclusions, write an intelligent sen
tence and that the idea never occurs
to them was the substance of a sar
castic address by Dean Tilery W.
Davis of the Univeristy of Nebraska
Superintendents and Principals’ as
sociation conventions in the Temple
Friday. Dean Davis’ caustic trim
ming of the preparation of high school
students when they entei- the state
university came during a symposium
on the early education of the high
school student as shown in his sub
sequent work.
“The present atmosphere of frater
nity foolishness and athletic competi
tion is responsible for this condition
which about all the instructors in the
university have noted,” he declared.
Continuing his carefully worded roast
on the students and their preparation
for higher training, he said:
“The student lacks the capacity to
take on definite knowledge. He can
not draw correct conclusions, and
while he regards careful, neat work
as very nice, he regards it as rather
“The student is also amused if it
is suggested that he should know any
thing about his previous year's work.
I think that about covers the situa
tion.” was the cool observation of the
university professor, while the con
vention was gasping for breath.
In addition to the fraternities and
athletics the dean also said that, the :
home teaching and modern atmos-,
phere were responsible for the pres
ent inadequency of the student to
grasp the essential in the thing he is
“The students on coming to the'
university lack precision, have only a
hazy idea of the words they use in j
expression. After they have learned I
principles they fail in the eifort to |
apply them intelligently. Go into |
any of the fraternity houses and you
won’t find the kind of English being
taught in the schools, used in con
“If there is any complexity in the
thought they are trying to express,
they will not be able to construct a
sentence which will mean just what
they want it to. And, “he added sar
castically, “it never occurs to them
that they have to do any thinking on
their own account.”
He made a plea to the principals
and teachers of smaller schools in the
state that “out of the mass of stuff
poured into them something should
be gotten out.”
A fellow in Chicago the other day
drew a sentence of 75 days in the pen
for stealing seven cents. The fellow
lacked in latter day wisdom. Proba
bly had lie succeeded in getting seven
millions instead, lie could have been
crowned as a hero and not got much
more enforced confinement.
Under the statutes it is provided
that by February 1 the district clerk
of each county shall return to the
secretary of the State Hoard of Health
a report of the marriages and the
divorces of the calendar years pre
ceding. These reports are to be made
upon blanks furnished by the state.
The toy pistol, blank cartridge and
firecracker law passed at the last
legislature, went into effect at mid
night Dec. 31st, last. This law pro
vides that from January 1 it shall
be unlawful for any person to sell,
use, ofTer or keep for sale within this
state any toy revolvers, shooting
blank cartridges for toy revolvers,
toy or firecrackers more than live
inches in length or three quarters of
an inch in diameter. It provides,
however, that caps containing dyna
mite may be used, kept for sale, or
sold when needed for mining pur
poses or for danger signals or for
other necessary uses. A violation of

Did you remember it? Yesterday
(Jan. 12) was the 22d anniversary of
the worst blizzard that has visited
the west in the momory of man. The
forenoon was warm and balmy with
a gentle breeze, summerlike and de
lightful, coming up lazily from the
south. Toward noon it began to get
foggy and we thought it was about
to give us a spring shower. Sudden
ly at about noon the wind wheeled
around to the north and came down
with a crash and fury that was
enough to scare a fellow and the
temperature fell down below zero
many degrees. There was a hustling
to shelter and older heads soon i>egan
to fear for the lives of people and
stock, though few, if any, fully
realized the danger that such a
storm was to us all. As the after
noon wore away and the fury of tiie
storm did not abate, apprehension
grew to fear and fear to terror.
Many lives were lost in all parts of
the west where the storm raged and
cattle suffered greatly and many died.
It was a terrible time.—Ord Quiz.
