In the list or canuiuaies tor me uuc senate
Mil hp found all of the democratic candidates
fexcept six and all of the republican candidates
Without exception, in me umana district, me
five democratic candidates have not yet pledged
themselves to vote ror ratincauon. xneir live
rpnublicaii opponents have pledged themselves
to vote for ratification if elected. Outside of the
Omaha district there is only one democratic
candidate for the state senate in the state of
NfihraBka who is not yet publicly pledged to vote
for ratification. That is the democratic candidate
in the fifteenth senatorial district, comprising
refforson and Thayer counties.
It is to be hoped that these six democratic
candidates will publicly pledge themselves be
fore election day to carry out the will of the
leonle as expressed in Nebraska two years ago;
If not, the democratic voters of Nebraska can
ie of more service to their country at this time
jy voting for the republican members of the
legislature, who are pledged to ratification, than
thoy can by voting for the democratic candidates
for the legislature who would vote to defeat the
tmendment and retain the saloons.
A largo majority of the candidate i to the
Nebraska house of representatives are pledged
to ratification, and more of them are making
iledges each day.
Nebraska voters should exaniine this list of
candidates, and if their candidates are not in
cluded in this list, the candidates should be im
mediately called upon to express themselves
upon this important quostion, and if they do
lot pledge themselves to ratification, every pos
sible offort should Tie made to defeat them at the
lolls regardlessof what party they are affiliated
The Nebraska legislature will ratify "the na7
tional prohibition amendment as one of the
first orders of business when the legislature
leets m January. It is gratifying to the dry
forces of Nebraska who have been waging the
contest against the distillers, brewers' and saloon
keepers to know that their fight ha.S been prac
tically won. The 'vote in the Nebraska legis
lature for ratification should be unanimous in
ioth houses, and if the voters do their dutv on
the Gth day of November, the vote for ratifica
tion of the national prohibition amendment in
the Nebraska legislature will be unanimous "in
lotii houses. ,t
The candidates for the senate and house
Pledging themselves to vote for ratification are

) No opposition.
The Gorman array Is headed for the Rhine
auout as fast as the allies will lot it go, but it
is suspected that it is not so much a case of
horaes'cknesB as a desire to find something in
which to drown their grief.
This ought to be a good time for all those
chaps who have been saying for a good many
years that they proposed to retire to a farm
some day and go to raising things to perform
their patriotic duty. '
The Louisville Courier-Journal is now an open
advocate of woman's suffrage, but there Is a
strong suspicion that Marse Henry Isn't writing
the editorials giving the reasons why the women
should have the ballot.
The big German blow In the west that we
heard so much about last February seems to'
have been confined largely to the kind of a
blow that boasters usually'malcc manifest.
