SEARCHING THE RECORD
Taking exception to the statement of the Lincoln
Journal that he is of the "conventional senatorial set
against which the country is apparently in revolt,"
Even with tha shortened acreage and tha low re
sulting from the sever drouth and heat of August,
tha yield of ths principal crops is moat imposing,
Corn retsins its place as king of fsrm products, with
an estimated total yield of 2,875,000,000 bushel.
valued at f 1,801,900,000 on September 1, Hay Is
second of th great billion-dollar trinity, with a valua
for wild and tarns of 11,160,200,000. Cotton comes
third, with a total estimated value of $1,004,400,000.
To th valua of th cotton will be added finally tha
Income from th seed, which may bring tha total
worth of tha crop ahov that for hay. Wheat Is set
down for a contribution of $720,600,000 to th grand
total; oats adds $404,100,000; potatoes bring $3H6,
400,000, and apples $227,200,000; and other yields
com In order, making up a grand total of $6,600,
Thes figures ar of aervlc because they afford
a reasonable starting point for calculating tha eondl
tion of the greatest of basic industries. They ar
well below the showing of th wag peak, but ar the
more dependable became they ar down. Some
thing approaching stability has been attained in th
matter of world consumption, and this will be re
flected in the market.

bring forward his record and make it an issue in "CHIEFEST" AMONG MILLIONS.
Nebraska. It means that Hitchcock believes the To be crowned queen of bathing beauties and
women of Nebraska have forgotten his opposition to I dubbed "Miss America," as Mary Katherine Camp-
woman suffrage; that women and men alike have
forgotten his opposition to prohibition and his con
nection with "big business," of such intimacy and
long standing that the present senior partner of
Bryan-Hitchcock, Ltd. has time and again been im
pelled to call it to the attention of the people of
Nebraska and elsewhere. "I have never been able to
keep Hitchcock away from Wall street," said Bryan
What constitutes a "progressive" senator?
When Hitchcock failed to vote to put a tariff on
hides, protecting a product of Nebraska farms and
ranches, waa he prompted by a desire to be "pro
gressive?" Although requested so to do by the republicans
, and democrats alike in the Nebraska state legislature,
Hitchcock voted against the emergency tariff rates on
agricultural products for the protection of Nebraska's
one greatest industry the farm. Was that an act to
substantiate his claim that he is a "progressive?"
Hitchcock voted "No" to the resolution declaring
an end to the war with Germany. Was this in lint
with his "progressive" ideas?
When the bill to regulate the packing houses, to
which Nebraska ships millions of dollars worth of its
products, was up in congress Hitchcock did not vote.
Was this according to his ideas just being "pro
gressive?" Hitchcock did not vote on the Important revenue
bill when It was up for consideration. Surely this
was more an effort to be "conventionally democratic"
than to be "progressive."
When the peace treaty with Germany was pre
sented for ratification, Hitchcock did not vote, and
neither did he vote upon the ratification of the Aus
trian peace treaty. This action certainly would
hardly be other than that of a "conventional demo
crat" opposing all that is republican.
He voted "No" when the senate approved the
four-power treaty, making possible the carrying out
of the arms limitation program and ending the mad
race for armed supremacy. Was he thus adding to
his "progressive" record, or was it further evidence
of his being "conventionally democratic?"
When it was proposed to appoint a committee to
negotiate for the funding of the foreign debt owed
this country, a matter involving the repayment of
nearly eleven billions of dollars, Hitchcock was present
but did not vote. Was Hitchcock sustaining his claim
then that he is a "progressive?"
Hitchcock did not vote when it was proposed to
bell of Columbus, O.. has been is no mean distinction
It does not matter that only 66 competitors were
entered in the final lists; every bathing beach In the
country had its competition, and from among the
millions of fair swimmers, anyone of whom deserves
to be called a peach, and "the on altogether lovely,"
were selected the 66 who were there at the finiiih.
So the winner may be considered as fairly representa
tive of the whole.
She may wear her crown and title with com
posure, but she will not be free from the inspection
of the most critical of all observers, those of her sex
and style, who also wear the one-piece suit and have
fun in the waters or on the sands. This jury has not
yet reported, and until it does the entire record may
not be made up. Another interesting reflection is
that Columbus has neither lake nor ocean on which
to construct a bathing beach, yet the storied Scioto
seema to have afforded sufficient moisture to bring
forth a nymph whese attractions won for her the
proud distinction of eclipsing those mermaids whose
habitat is on one or the other of the great oceans,
along: the lakes, or where water is present in abund
ance. It is but another victory for the great agricultural
empire, of which Ohio is the eastern and Nebraska
the western guardian. Something worth while, for
this region takes a back seat for none, and even
Solomon would have some trouble to decide which
of all its myriads of worth while girls is "chiefest."

GETTING BACK THE LETTER.
Have you ever written a letter, and changed your
mind, and then destroyed the letter? Of course you
have, and so has everyone. Sometimes, though, you
have mailed that letter before changing your mind.
Then you are not happy. Whatever the reason, such
a letter is a source of worry. Now comes Dr. Hubert
Work, postmaster general, with relief for those who
are so troubled. Under his recent ruling it will be
possible to get such a letter out of the clutches of
Uncle Sam. All the writer has to do is to notify the
postmaster in time that such a missive has been
mailed, and furnish reasonable proof of having writ
ten it. Then it will be returned, and, in cases of
emergency, such a letter will be halted en route by a
telegram to the railway mail clerk.
How much of trouble this will save in the world
is beyond estimation, but surely it will help to quiet
the qualms of many an uneasy letter writter. Folks
may now change their minds with comparative safety,
because Dr. Work, continuing the humanizing of the

EUROPE TAKES THE HINT.
Recognition of the ideal of disarmament is made
in reports to the council of the league of nations by
a number of nations. It is significant, however, that
the greateat reduction of armament did not originate
with th league, but with th International confer
ence held in Washington.
Great Hritain report to th council a 65 per cent
cut in naval tonnage, Japan 69 percent. Italy 49 per
cent, and Franc 36 per cent. Ther is no reason to
bri eve that this would have been posaible had not
the United Stairs, acting Independently of th league
of nations called on th power to agrc to a program
of economy and armament limitation.

Nebraska seldom met with, and
made this occasion one long to be

shoulder, tho readiness Omaha peo

ardent each succeeding year and
causes the visitor to feel the interest

Don C. Van Deusen: There Is a
decidedly better feeling among the
newspaper men of the state now
than there was a few year ago
when an Omaha paper dubbed the j
newspaper men "Country Yoke!."
It has taken a long time to wear this
off, but the meeting last week shows
It has finally worn off. I can re
member when we had our annual
meeting In Omaha and the Chamber
of Commerce or business men took
no notice of us at all. We even had
to furnish our own room In which
to meet. Naturally the newspaper
folk didn't' fall In love with Omaha
after such treatment. Lincoln al
ways treated us better and It was
even written In our constitution that
we meet In Lincoln every other year.
When Omaha began to alt up and
take notice of us the majority vote
has been for Omaha each year.
At ono time when tha wet and
dry fight was on Omaha didn't want
to remain a pnrt of the state of Ne
braska and a lot of us didn't care
whether It did or not. Even now,
Omaha doesn't abide by the laws
that govern the balance of the state,

kindlier feeling toward Nebraska's

feeling to their constituency through
their country newspapers, end In so
doing will eliminate any prejudice
or feeling of Jealousy which might
exist In the minds of the people
