The Republicans of Webster coun
ty should be car. if ul ir. - selecting
their cacdWates fo t legislative hocors
rthis fall. Select candidates whose
official rifi'cnl will stand the closest
scrutiny ar.d then no uptake will
likc-lv heicade. At all events select
men who will not, undo ths splendid
work of the last- Legislature in deal
in" wUh tie i railroad transportation
question. Mr. A. J. Kenney of this
city, who wis a member of the lower
Hou?e of tht. last Legislature and is
now a candidate for State Senator,
tool: an active part in securing the
passage of the present law. cieating a
board f tr;.ucpoi tation with power to
fix rates. The board is fully empow
ered to examine tlr.e books ot the var
ious railroad companies, toleanntheir
interior wi.rkiags, cost of conatruc
tioit, operation, and (tler details that
will enable tliest to pass an intelligent
judgement upen the rate question.
Judge 0. 1. 31fcoi, one of the seore
taries of the board, and one of the
abler lawyers -in the state, seems to
be well satisfied with both the spirit
andktterof t.ie law. In a recent
discussion of the rate problem he
stated that '-the -only course open for
the b: rd of transportation in the dis
charge of their official duty, is to hew
to the line of the law, and see that
the rates are reascnable without re
gard to -the consequences or without
reard to th. threats of retaliation on
the parUjf the railroads or those who
pretend. to speak in their favor.'"
The action of the.Iast Legislature
placing tL-is law upon the statute book
was far in.advancc of ether and more
ltopulous cri the western states. In
Iowa the rate problem las been under
discussion fcr twenty years and the
tejii-lature refused to clothe the com
missioners wl'.h power to lis rates.
This left -the r,aads in that state un
checked in the matters -of fieight
charges. Ilert in Nebraska where
the question ha5 been under disscuss
ion before the people less than ten
years, the legislature gave .he people
protection against .extortionate rates
by creating a board and clothiog it
with a full power to fix rates. One
year after this law was passed the
legislature of Iowa enacted almost a
verbatim ccpy of the Nebraska stat
ute. That material benefit to the
people has resulted from the passage
of this law no one can doubt. Even
the Omaha Bee, whose editor favored
a:i inflexible tarriff law, has several
times admitted in its editorial col
umns that the law and the board
created by it had resulted in many
concessions to the people from the
rj::ds. And even after these concess
ions were obtained, and after the
board had more fully investigated
the question, now comes an order
from the board reducing freight rates
from fifteen to fifty per cent.
But the part Mr. Kenney took in
securing the passage of this law does
not complete his record in the rail
road transportation question. In the
republican state convention last fall
there was a sharp contest between
the people and the railroads over the
nomination of a candidate for sup
reme judge. The railroad lobbyists
were, there in full fore for the pur
pose of defeating the nomination of
Ju3'e Maxwell on account of un
fr:M.dly decisions already rendered,
and !iis anticapated decision of the
p.iv.rr of the present law then pen
din., before his court. It may be oi
Hi! crest to the people to know that
Mr. Kenney was a delegate to that
convention, and was the only one of
nine from this county who voted for
the renoini nation of Judge Maxwell.
Then Mr. Kenney 's record on the
transportation question is all on the
side of the people, and of a character
that ought to satisfy the rankest anti

TO MAKE A CHICAGO DAILY NEWS?
You haven't? Well, let us give you just a glimpse into the business, perhaps it will
To begin with, the work of the paper is divided into Seventeen Different Departments,
each under its own responsible Superintendent. Let us take them in order as
tliey stand on ilie weekly pay-roll:
l. The Editorial Department. This includes managing
editors, city editors, telegraph editors, exchange
editors, editorial writers, special writers, ana aoom
thirty reporters. The Daily News staff is
admittedly without a superior in the West, anil
numbers ................ 5o
a. The Telegraph Room. To save time special wires are
run into The Daily News building, and the
paper's own operators take the messages and hand
them immediately to the telegraph editor. The
number of operators is 3
3. The Compositor's Room. When "copy" has passed
the hands of the proper revising editor it goes to
the type-setter. There are a good many of him in
The" Daily News office on an average . . 73
4. The Linotype Room. But the compositor doesn't do
all the type-setting. The 'Linotype" machine
"sets type" by casting a-line-of-type, on somewhat
the same principle as the type-founder casts a
single type. Fourteen of these machines are in use
in The Daily News oflice, and the number of
persons required in this department is ... . 20
5. The Artists' and Engravers' Department. But the
metropolitan daily now gives its readers not only
reading matter, but also illustrations. By the aid
of good artists, zinc etchers and photography by
electric light The Daily News is now printing
the best newspaper illustrations in America. This
takes the best service of skilled workers to the
number of .............4
6. The Stereotype Foundry. The matters-type and pic
tures being now "locked up" in "the "forms" the
work is next transferred to the foundry. A metro
politan daily no longer prints from its type. In
order to print a large edition quickly it is neces
sary to multiply the -printing surfaces, and this is
accomplished by casting duplicate stereotyped
plates, from which, after they have been fastened
to the presses, the printing is dune. Of stereo
types Tun Daily News requires 8
7. The Press Room. The Daily News uses sis double
perfecting presses, capable of printing 100,000 com
plete papers per hour. To run these there are
required men to the number of 20
The foregoing takes no account of the special correspondents at hundreds of places throughout the country; of European
correspondents; of fifteen hundred news agents throughout the Northwest who distribute The Daily News to its out of town
readers; of two hundred city carriers ; of forty-two wholesale city dealers with their horses and wagons; of one hundred
and fifty branch advertisement offices throughout the city, all connected with the main office by telephone, nor of the abouj
three tlauieand newsboys who make a living, in whole or in part, selling The Daily News in Chicago. This is what it cost'
the publisher to make a Chicago Daily News. It costs the reader to buy it one cent a day. Measured by the cost of itt
production, TnE Daily News is worth its price, isn't it? The Chicaaa Daily News is sold by all newsdealers, or will be
mailed, postage paid, for $3.00 per year, or 25 cents per month. Address
