Never in the political history of this country has the sit
uation been so tense as in the present campaign. It is all
ver> pretty and amusing on the surface and well enough
to quiz over, and furnishes a fund of small talk, but what
about results? There is no denying the fact that Roose
velt has the greatest foliowing, the biggest men and the
most powerful and potential influences working in his be
half e\ or developed by a new party movement. The fact
that the leader is one who has been president, has a pow
erful personality, is one of the most forceful men in the
nation, and has almost hypnotic control of those with
w hAin he comes in contact, makes of the bull moose affair
a force to l*e reckoned with beside which former politial
outbreaks are mere pigmies, so to speak. But while he
has the utmost ascendancy over his followers, he perforce
has to contend with a much greater element against him.
It is agreed that the Roosevelt deflection will for the most
part come from the republican ranks, proving that the
Roosevelt candidacy is very material aid to democracy, and
tends toward the election of Wilson. This being the case,
th«* Roosevelt movement is simply a movement of the
country toward democratic ascendancy, whether the ad
mirers and followers of the-expresident are willing to ad
mit or it not. Roosevelt claims the election of Wilson
means panic, industrial disturbandes and consequent hard
times, yet he knows his candidacy will have that result,
and he will have brought that upon the people in event of
Wilson's election, if his prophecy be true. No one sin
cerely believes Roosevelt will be elected, not even the
notl sanguine, hence republicans who vote Roosevelt do
so under the plea of progressiveism, aod that if they are
not successful this year they will sweep the country four
years hence, and “turn the rascals out,” who have been
' turned in by their practical half vote. The only wail
of our Roosevelt friends and plausible excuse for helping
place democracy next to the “pie counter” is that Taft
ites stole the nomination Rooseveltes would have stolen if
they had been the smoothest, proposing to throw the coun
try over into the hungry "maw” of the free traders who
will pay them therefor in the diet of "soup houses” and in
dustrial distress. That is the situation at present. Will
it continue and insure democratic success? Can our friends
w ho believe in the doctrines advocated by McKinley risk
the rainbow chasing of Bryanism, by even tacit encour
The Northwestern is willing to admit, so far as the pri
mary results show, that it is in a hopeless minority in this
county in its advocacy of the regular republican national
ticket It acknowledges tnat Roosevelt had'five to one
over Taft It acknowledges that it is talking to a large
majority of its republican readers who believe houestly
the> are in the right, while the paper is just as surely in
the w rong. We will not try to read each other out of the
party, neither will we consent to the thery that they are
any the less republican in principle or less believers in
the truths advocated by the party because of a difference
of opinion as to the method of working out those princi
ples. We all make mistakes and we may be pardoned in
classing ourself with the lone juryman who sat in the trial
with eleven of the “contrariest enters” on earth,
Elsewhere in this issue will be found more or less histo
ry and facts tegarding the epidemic among horses in this
state and Kansas. So far all veterinarians and authori
ties on diseases of animals are up in the air regarding the
epidemic and whether it will be possible to stamp it out
at an early date is very questionable.
Two years ago. Maine went over eight thousand demo
cratic. This year it returns to the republican fold. Even
Maine could not help sinning once, but repented.
The elephant and bull moose join in electing the repub
lican state ticket. Whoa, you democratic mule; back up.
The Nebraska electoral candidate tangle is still in a
tangle. W'hen will the tangle untangle?
