THE REPUBLICAN CONVENTION
The republicans of tlto stato In conven
tion akjeuiblcil ut Lincoln Tuesday
seemed to be In control of tlio followers
mid supporters of l'leslJent Taft. who
held RUih supremacy that they could have
pasted any resolutions they saw lit, but
who for tho c.Uto of harmony which was
not slow In comtnjr, contented themselves
with an endorsement of the administra
tion In no uncertain terms and stopped
short of any refcrenco to candidates for
ottlcc In the future. The opponents of tho
president, active, during the morning In
tryine to cecuro some sort of a compro
mise which would not biliu; on a light,
listened to the reading of tho laudatory
resolutions, sotno of them refusing to
nrrco with tho sentiment, others rising
with the majority In endorsement of the
specific tilings tho resolutions set forth
that President Taft had done. No men
tion was m.tdo of reciprocity.
By far tho most extensive resolution
pmentcd was that deallui; with tho prcnl
dent and his conduct as executive of the
nation. Ho was placed in the samo cate
gory with several other republican presi
dents of the last half century, and e3po
cl.il reference made to some of tho thlns.-i
liu had done as president. The resolution
ndcil wltli the expression "and wo heart
ily endorse his statesmanlike administra
tion." Many of tho Insurgents saw In the
failure la mention his candidacy for a
tetond term a partial victory for thorn,
took what was said as good enough and
when Chairman JclTilos called for a ris
ing vote In order to neo how large the
majority for tho administration was, not
more than thirty delegates bat In their
is U s, refusing to Join In the Keuctal har
mony. The Resolutions.
Following nro tho resolutions:

"Under our republican governor, Ches

"i-'or all tills the republican partv right
fully claims credit, ns also for tho, pro

been possible only by tho co-operation of
republican law makers nnd the approval
of a republican executive, no less than
for tho blocking by executive veto of
vicious or purely nartlsin measures pro
posed solely for political effect.
"Nebraska has always taken pride In Its
educational Institutions and we pledge
liberal support to tho state university in
nil of Its branches, and In view of the
predominant agricultural Interests of tho
state we specially commend tho work be

schools." . .
On motion of a Thayer county delegate,
the chair ordered tho Incorporation of the
names of Presidents Hayes nnd Harrison
among tho illustrious presidents men

fdaced In there morelv as a method of
padlng up to the mild endorsement of
the president which followed.

"Tho democracy of Nebraska In .con
vention a&semblcu reaitiims Its allcglauco
to tho fundamental principles of thu party
as enunciated lu tho statu and national
plattoi ins' of l'JOS. Wu point with pride
to tliu leadership thu dumocrnuy ot Ne
braska has taken during thu last quarter
of u century in thu lulorms ulrehdy uu
oompllslied as well as those that uro in
process of accomplishment. It was the
voice of Nebraska democracy that pleaded
persistently, and in tho facu of great dis
couragement, for tho election ot senators
by tho people; for the Income tax; for
tariff rovlston in tho Interests of the con
sumers; for tho free listing of products
of tho trusts; for tho publicity of cam
paign fund receipts and expenditures; for
gu.'irantuu of bank deposits; for the regu
lation of railroads; for, tho support of tho
rights of tho states, and tho pieservation
of tho general government In its whole
constitutional vigor; for tho prevention of
the establishment of u 'twilight zono' be
twceji tho nation and the stato, in which
exploiting interests might tako refuge
from both; for tho preservation of our
constitutional form, without impairing
through legislation by courts or other
wise; for tho vindication of tho truth that
'a prlvato monopoly Is indefensible and
intolerable,' and finally for tho broad
democratic doctrine that tho people may
safely bo ontrusted with tho control of
their own government.
"We congratulute tho nation that dem
ocratic principles are rapidly winning
favor In all sections of the country and
with fair-minded men of all parties. We
rejoice in the loyalty shown to the prin
ciple by tho democratic members of the
national senate and house of representa
tives. "We view with prldo the splendid quali
ties of faithful leadership displayed by
patriotic and courageous democratic gov
ernors. The record that has been made
Is proof that democracy Is entitled to rule,
because of the high Ideals of government
It stands for and that It can bo tiustcd to
guard the rights of the people because of
the loyalty, experience and capacity
Bhown by those whom It has entrusted
wtth power. With confidence we ask for
comparisons of the records of democratic
faithfulness with that of republican un
faithfulness. Tho rising of democratic
ideals with the towering of republican
stundardsof political morality and popu
larity, the popularity of democratic legis
lation with tho growing odium attached
to republican policies.
"Wo point to the fact that democratic
principles are triumphant in public opin
ion and that the republican party Is be
ing forced to gradually abandon Its at
tempt to hold tho republican rank and
ftlo to longer support tho so-called pro
tective UrliT policy of that party. Whllo
wo legrot that thoro was not u demo
cratic president and a democratic senuto
to mako possible a beginning of tariff re
vision by striking tho first blow at the
protection now accorded all trust prod
ucts In tho present tariff bill, wo point to
the Taft reciprocity measure as proof that
tho republican party Is now abandoning
even the f.retenso that its protective pol

farmer. The democratic freo list tnrllt
bill Is proof that our party has taken a
tlrst step lu the right direction and can
be trusted when It In given power to re
duce tho tariff which feeds the trusts
nnd fattens them ut tho expense of the
farmers of the nation.
"Wo favor tho early passage of a ser
vlco pension bill. , Wo commend tho dem
ocratic leprcsentattvcs of this stato for
their support of such a measure In tho
last congtess, and urge our senators and
representatives In tlio present congress

"This convention commends and en
dorses the record of the late democratic
