be-voted ou at the next election. Nebraska's election laws are
'entirely too liberal. Under them a foreigner needs to live in
Nebraska but six months in order to become a voter. He needs
onlj' to declare his intentions to become a citizen after six
months' residence, and he is then a voter. He need never com
plete his citizenship. The amendment provides that those who
have declared their intentions must complete their citizenship
iuside of live years or forfeit the right to vote, while those who
are not already naturalized citizens of some other state, of at
least five years' standing, shall have lived in the United States
at least five years before being privileged to vote. The limi
tation is reasonable enough in all conscience, and the amend
ment should carry by a rousing majority. -
Otto William Meier, democratic candidate for county attor
ney, is a young lawyer of acknowledged ability, splendid char
acter and undoubted industry. He has never before sought
political office, although he was elected to the city council as
a democrat from a heavily republican ward a fact that bears
eloquent testimony to his standing among his fellow townsmen,
ne is a veteran of the Spanish-American war. If elected Mr.
Meier will take into the office of county attorney the energy
of a young man who has no strings tied to him, and who will
be under no obligations to airpbody save the people hie has been
chosen to serve. ,
Peter Morteusen has filed as a candidate . for railroad com
missioner to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Mr. Cow
gill. ' There seems to be some question about the right of the
governor to appoint to fill the vacancy, although the general
opinion is tliat the governor has that right. The matter will
doubtless be contested in the courts. If the republicans were
looking for a- good man for the place why did they overlook
Clark Perkins, the present secretary of the commission?
Auditor Barton's vote in Havelock and Plattsmouth ought
fr) show up big. An insurance company succeeded in writing a
lot of policies for shop men in those two cities by promising
things that no reputable insurance company could carry out.
Auditor Barton got wind of the fact, investigated thoroughly,
and then made the insurance company return the premiums,
thus saving the mechanics several thousand dollars. It is be
cause Auditor Barton has pursued this line of policy, making
no particular fuss, but safeguarding the people at every turn
Of the road, that he is deserving of re-election. And his majority
ought to be so decisive as to be a splendid encouragement to
other officials to work in the interests of the whole Deoole in-

A most interesting rumor has been set afloat, and it should
receive the widest publicity. It is to the effect that the frame
up of the anti-option forces is to elect Dahlman this year, send
him to the senate two years from now and elect John Sink of
Cirand Island to the governorship to succeed him. Wouldn't
that disturb the mold on the fruit jars?
York county has never had a saloon, save once, and then only
for a coupte of months. You would naturally think that Dahl
man stood about as much show in York county as a prohibition
candidate in the Peoria district. Mark the prediction: Dahl
man will come wjthin 250 votes of carrying York county. And
Aldrich's majority in Lancaster will be considerably less than
the majority recorded by the "drys" in Lincoln last spring if,
indeed, he has any. majority at all in Lancaster.
The est eemed Journal, which says that the voters are entitled
to all the facts, is cordially invited to inform the voters how
and under what conditions Chester H. Aldrich broke his leg
in York, Nebraska, a few years ago.
Mr. Dix of New York says Roosevelt owes him an apology
for uttering an untruth about him. If Roosevelt stopped to
apologize for every untruthful attack he has made on men who
differ from him, he would be standing still most of the time.
Of course Col. Ross Hammond is defending Burkett in his
newspaper. Burkett gave Col. Hammond that fine little job
as collector of internal revenue. - , - .

of independent men by his efforts to appeal-to partisanship.
