W. J. Bryan, with an eloquent gesture, has as
sured the people of Nebraska that Hitchcock is
pure as the driven snow and that "the liquor ques

Yet in April of this year, in speech delivered at
Lincoln before Brother Charley had decided to run
for office, Bryan Issued this warning: "If a candi
date says this issue ia settled, rail him a liar!"
It is this slranse contrast and contradiction that
moved Senator Norris to observe in his speech at
Chadron: "The combination is rotten and can not

UNION PACIFIC AND CENTRAL PACIFIC.
One of the noteworthy contributions to current
discussion of the situation with regard to the "Pa
cific" railroads is found in the October number of
"The University of California Chronicles." Writ
ing of the "Southern Pacific Unmerger," Prof.
Stuart Daggett of the University of California con
cludes a long and careful consideration of the en
"The writer Is In favor of tho tranwfer of tho
Central Pacific to the Union TiieiHe, becauae lie bn
lieves thut transcontinental routes should be oper
ated at) milts. They perform the functions of a
bridge between termini far more than do railroads
in more evenly settled eastern communities, and
Just as it is undeslrublo for one-half of a bridge
to bo owned by ono party und the other half my
another purty, so It is tiiideslrahlo for one hulf of
the ObiIcu routo to be owned hy one railroad com
pany and the other half to be owned by another
railroad company. The reasons, ot inconvenience
which are presented to justify tho continued com
mon control of gathering lines In California seem
to him to appy with even more force to the com
mon management of what should he a continuous
lino at least from Omaha to the Pacific coast."
Prof. Daggett also expresses the belief "that
this change would lead in tho long run to a better
physical development of the Ogden route, and to
a more rapid and perhaps a cheaper movement over
this line." He also argues that to continue control
of the Central Pacific in tho Southern Pacific is
dangerous, because it does not insure the continued
movement of traffic at a maximum bv wav of
Omaha. "The writer does not believe that the
right to route can sufficiently protect the shipper
against a settled railrpad policy," he says.
Prof. Daggett s article is especially interesting
because it shows a change in the thought of Cali
fornia people with reference to the disposal of the
Central Pacific. Tho Southern Tacific is still seek
ing to avoid the unmerger, but the eggs that went
into the Harriman omelet may yet he separated.
NEBRASKA'S HUSKY WARRIORS.
Native Nebraskans know their worth and merit,
but chief among the cardinal virtues practiced here
abouts is that of modesty. Maybe we are now going
a little beyond the limits of the customary repres
sion of self-advertising, yet the risk is assumed, be
cause somebody has to do it.
On behalf of the Nebraska football team of
1922 we accept the nomination offered it by Coach
Steve O'Rourke of St. Louis university, who. tenders
it the honor of being the greatest football team evef
got together in the world. Hear him further:
"Nebraska is so good It could play Harvard
Thursday. Yale Friday, and Centre Saturday, and
win all three games."
All in favor say aye. The ayes have it, and it
ii to ordered.
Yet we would like to call Mr. O'Rourke's atten
tion to the fact that while we esteem him as a
scholar and a gentleman, and a corking good judge
of football material, he has told us nothing we did
not already know. Nebraska always turns out a
mighty good football team, and anybody looking
for proof of this assertion can get it from Kansas,
Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, Notre Dame and other
who have tasted Cornhu-ker hospitality.

Stringing Mr. Brjnn.
From Ihn Kvliraaka Sluto Journal.
As if Mr. Bryan's place in bed with
Benatnr Hitchcock wore not misery
enough for him. some one has been
drawing our eloquent ex-rltlzen into
further embarrassment. They have
put Mr. liryan to retailing notable
misstatements of facts. Not matters
of fact, over which there can he dis
pute, but matters in which the facts
nre of record.
In some of his speeches Mr. Bryan
makes the flat presentation that to
his brother belongs tho glory for car
rying on and winning Lincoln's dollar
g.as suit. In his Heatrico Rpeecli ho
told how at towns where he had been
speaking grateful present or former
citizens of Lincoln had come to him
und told him how they had received
some of that rebate money, some $4H,
some $15, and so on; nil carrying the
Implication of glory to Brother Char
ley for every cent got.
As everybody in Lincoln knows,
who knows anything at public affairs,
tho Lincoln dollar gas ordinance was
passed and the suit eturted more than
15 years ago when the. Hryans were
devoted wholly to stale and national
politics. At no time in the entire
course of that long fight had the
Bryans anything in particular to do
with the caaa. City administration
after city administration the one of
which Brother Charles was a part not
more than any other pressed thati
suit. It was won finally because the
entire city stood with remarkable
firmness behind whatever rlty gov
ernment xvas In (ittioe, insisting a!
wave on the pressing ot the suit.
I-'or unyono to claim for Brother
Charles or for nny other Individual
or group of Individuals' a special credit
for the success of that suit is a piece
of effrontery. It is nn attempt tu de
prive an entire cltijienship of the
credit for a great deed done, by and
for Itself. One could name imtny wh
wei o in position do special serv lee
in that contest. There were the ineni
