law's impertinence in being com
pelled to state his party affiliations
before casting his vote. We favor
an amendment permitting each po
litical party to call a mass party
county convention prior to the pri
mary election for the purpose of pro
mulgation of a platform and electing
a county central committee, and the
elc L.V n of delegates to state con
vention. We denounce the assertions that
republicanism leads to economy and
cite the people the facts that under
a few years of republican rule our
taxes have more than doubled upon
the same property.
NEBRASKA REPUBLICAN CON
VENTION The Nebraska republican conven
tion met at Lincoln, September 24.
Governor George L. Sheldon was
chosen chairman of the convention.
A resolution endorsing William H.
Taft for the republican presidential
nomination was adopted by a vote
of 34 to 19. The following platform
As the representatives of the re
publicans of Nebraska, in state con
vention assembled, we again com
mend the inspiring character and un
daunted leadership of Theodore
Roosevelt. We especially endorse
what he has accomplished, with the
support of a republican congress, to
ward subjecting the overweening
railroads engaged in interstate com
merce to- the regulating arm of the
government and in curbing the ra
pacity of the lawless trusts by forc
ing them to desist from their crim
inal practices. ' These policies have
our unqualified approval and in order
that no backward step be taken, we
will insist that his successor be a
man whose record pledges a contin
uance of the distinctive policies of
the' Roosevelt administration.
While not presuming to forestall
the action of any future convention
we express the belief that the repub
licans of Nebraska recognize in the
Hon. William H. Taft of Ohio one
whose personal character and whose
long public service mark him as pre
eminently the man under whose lead
ership these policies would be per
petuated. We endorse the present
state administration. State affairs
are being conducted with integrity
and business sagacity. Our public
institutions are being 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 being wise
ly invested in interest bearing secur
ities. We commend our republican dele
gation in congress for their faithful
representation of the interests of the
people of Nebraska. We especially
commend the last legislature for
faithfully fulfilling republican
pledges made to the people. It was
a record of legislative fidelity with
out precedent in Nebraska.
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 republi
cans a year ago, whose every prom
ise has been carried out in scrupu
lous good faith. The republicans
promised the people of this state the
1. A state wide direct primary.
2. Abolition of tho free pass evil.
3. Comprehensive powers for the
state railway commission.
4. More equitable rat?s for trans
portation 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.
8. Rigid economy in appropria
Because Most of Them Contain
Dangerous Ingredients, Which
Produce the Drug Habit
Thousands of people, having dys
pepsia or stomach troubles in sortie
form, continually "dope" themaehea
with all sorts of secret tonics, drugs
pills, cathartics, etc., which not only
inflame and irritate the stomach and
intestines, but in many cases cause
the opium, morphine and cocaine
You nave a right and should de
mand to know what any medicine
contains before you take it, unless
it is put up or recommended by some
reputable physician. Fakes and
quacks will put most anything into
their secret preparations, to make
you like their useless stuff so as to
want more of it, until it makes you
the victim of some drug habit, which
will ruin your health in a short time.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are not
a secret remedy, they do not contain
injurious drugs, and they are recom
mended by thousands of physicians in
the United States and Canada to their
patients, for dyspepsia, catarrh of the
stomach, and all other stomach
troubles resulting from improper di
gestion of food.
These wonderful tablets actually
digest food because they contain the
very elements that are required of
a healthy stomach to properly digest
food, thus acting as a substitute and
giving the overworked digestive or
gans a rest and a chance to regain
their former health, strength and
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets contain
fruit and vegetable essences, the puro
concentrated tincture of hydrastis,
and golden seal, which tone up and
strengthen the mucous coats of tho
stomach and .increase the flow of
gastric and other digestive juices;
lactose (extracted from milk) ; nux,
to strengthen the nerves controlling
the action of the stomach; bismuth
to absorb gases and prevent ferment
ation, and pure aseptic pepsin (gov.
test) of the highest digestive power.
All of these are scientifically incor
porated in these tablets or lozenges
and constitute a complete, natural,
speedy cure for any stomach trouble.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are sold
in large fifty-cent boxes, by all drug
gists. Write us for a free sample pack
age. This sample alone will glvo
you sufficient relief to convince you.
