: '
. i , 'fhe constitutional convention
lately held in Michigan decided
'I that male citizens only shall be
I qualified to exercise the elective
franchise. It now seems probable -
; able that the advocates of equal
' , ' suffrage will insist upon submit-
ing the matter to the election in
; 4 November. The adage that
,1 Dame Nature bestowed upon
'I woman the art of chit-chat by
, way of consoling her for having
, . ! to endure so much of man's pon-
( I derous wisdom , would appear to
: \ be especially applicable to the
Wolverine statesmen , judging
from the weight of the oratorkal
broadsides indulged in immediately -
, ately preceding the taking of
the vote.
There is necessity today for. .
action in congress. Conditions
demand it , the people insist on
it and cong'ress cannot ignore it
I without disaster to the countrv.
Warnings may fall on deaf ears
and promises are not wanted , because -
cause today is the day for action.
It is the only way that confidence
I can be restored in the countr ) ' as
to the concl1tion of the financial
, institutions. Without faith the
busin ss and tl1c political world
becomcs chaos , and the present
session must legi late on the
financial qucstion or confidence
will remain unsatisfied.
It is becoming more aud more
I '
, . apparent that , with the large
and still increasing population
of the country and the generally
active linterest taken by all in
congressional atIairs , there
should be a change in the datc

Why should this country talk
a b 0 u t depression ? Not withstanding -
standing the recent alleged flurry
in the stock market down cast ,
and an effort to pull all the cur-

It seems rather strange that
Anderw Carnegie should make
the statement that 111.'his country
has th worst money system in
the world , " when tl1e funds are' '
coming in to him so fast that he
can't find a way to spend them.
It is the poor men who would be
supposed to mal < e such complaint.
'rhe report is current that
there are some men in tl1is state
who have claimed to be strong
friends ot the l ouseveH policies
who are doing all in their power
to have delegates elected to the
National convention who IIcan
be handled" in some other way.
Opposed to Third Term.
It is pretty generally believed
now by the people , sincc President -
dent Hoosevelt supports the
Oe : > rge Washington idea , that
oflice holders who seek election
for the third term arc overreaching -
reaching their claims upon the
voters , and that in so doing they
seem to think they are the whole
thing and that no one else can
properly perform the duties 01
the office for which they have
twice asked and been given the
suffrage of their constituents.
' { 'he feeling that a third-termer
is not to be tolerated is spreading -
ing rapidly and not only in connection -
nection with the ) residency , but
that it should also apply to state
and county ofiices.
During the county conveution
in this city last week the writeI
, heard a number of delegates dis.
cussing the question and the
, were all of the same opinion. .
One deleFate said that some
might consider him too par.
, ticular , but he couldn't help iti
he never did fancy a hog of th <
two-legged variety and when a
. fellow had two served two terms
it was time to back away from
the pie bench and give the others
a chance. Of course , if no otheI
capable and worthy individua1
desires any pie and t hc voten
I clamor for the would-be third.
, termer it isn't so bad , but for iI
man having servcd two terms t (
seek a third term is asking om
too many.
Congressman Pollard was inter'

days ago and made the followin !
statement , which will gain man )

Mr. Pollard :
"I have talked with the presi
dent a great many times abou' '

_ tion with the president I an
convinced that under no circum
stances will he accept a renomin ,
ation for a third term. Ile i

Farmer Friend , How'd V-iike wl-
1.'hc editor of the Cozad Local
seems to be of the opinion that
if farmcrs who are delinquent
subscribers would do unto the
editor as they would have others
do unto them , there would be less
financially embarras ed printing
offices. What farmer would ell-
joy a case like this ? Ruppose
you bad five hundred bushcls of
corn for s'lle and five hundred
men came at different times , each
one being trusted because ) 'ou
did not want to appear "small"
and not trust a neighbor for such
a small amount. And in thi
manlier J'ou disposed of all the
corn. You have an obligation
to pay and it must be mct and if
those. who bought the corn woulel
eacb pay the 50 cents they OW ( ' ,
you woulc'l have $250 and could
pay the creditor who is pressing'
you-and still have money left.
But these five hundred mcn
each say unto himself that ) ' 011
are not in any hurry for the 50
cents they owe you-anyhow
such a small amount wouldn't
help very mucb-not realizing
that you have let out five hundred -
dred bushels in single bushel lots
and all on time and that vou are
badly in need of funds.
Those who neglect to pay
their dollar on subscription not
only one year , but year after
year , are requested to consider
the foregoing illustration , which
is almost identical with the position -
ition in which the newspaper
publisher is placed when his subscribers -
scribers do not pay.
The RltPUDLICAN has over a
thousand neighbors , each of
whom owe a small amount and
they mistakenly think-if they
do think-it is not needed , because -
cause it is , and if they respond
bearty thanl < s will be sent with
each receipt. . _ _ _
J. H. Edmisten Forfeits Bonds.
Charged with being a participant -
pant in Government land fraud
cases anp under bonds of $10.000
to appear in court in Omaha on
Monday , J. II. Edmisten forfdted
his bon < 1s by lion-appearance
either in person or by attorney.
Mr. Edmisten was formerly a
resident of this county , residing
in the vicinity of Lomax and
served as a member of the board
of supervisors and is quite well
remembered by many of our
residen ts.
In regard to the case the
Omaha Bea of Tuesday contained
the following :
J ames I-I. l dmisten of Lincpln ,
former chairman of the populist
state committee and state oil inspector -
specter under the last populist
regime In Nebraska , failed to appear -
pear in United States district
court Monday morning in answer
, to indictments charging him
with frauds in severallanrt transactions -
sactions and Judge W. H. Mun-
ger declared his bonds of $10-
I 000 forfeited. These were two
bonds of $5,000 each on which
John A. Edmisten , his brother ,
si ned his name as surey.
'l'he whercabouts of Edmisten
is a matter of conjecture. That
. is the reason for the forfeiture of
his bond. Last week a rumor
was circulated that he had left
for Mexico after having cleverly
disposed of all hi property amounting -
mounting to some $30,000.
Friends of Edmisten denied
this rumor and said he was in
_ North Platte , npar which place
he was arrangin g to enga e x-
tensively in the ranch business ,
but the secret service ofiicials
could not veri fy tins report , nor
could they even learn that he
_ was anywhere near North Platte
and Bignell ,
When the secret sen'ice became
satisfied he was not in the state
the governmen t decided to take
_ drastic measures. The fact
1 that W. W. Summers of Omaha
_ and J. B. Strode of Lincoln , Ed-
_ misten's attorneys , also failed to
appear in court , quickened the
determination for action.
'l'hree indictmcnts arc pending
_ against Mr. Edmisten. One is
t for conspiracy to defraud the
government out of use , title and
possession to large tracts of land
In the North Platte land district
by means of false , fraudulent and
ficti tious en tries. Another is
for perjury and subornation of
perjury in securing witnesses to
final proof entries in the case of
Olin W. Ilendee , a former Omaha
. newspaper man and one Brown.
The third indictment is for forgery -
gery in an application to enter
public lands and for the transmission -
mission of such forged papers to
the land office.
. In the conspiracy to dcfraud
indictment , Olin W. Hendee and
J William H. Keefer are jointly indicted -
dicted with Mr. Edmisten. The
total amount of land involved in
the alleged fraudulent transactions -
tions will closely approximate
- 10,000 acres.

Another National Monument.
'rhe President has just signed
a proclamation criating the Jewel -
el Cave National Monument within -
in the Black Hills National Forest -
est , South Dakota. 'rhis remarkable -
markable cave , which is located
13 miles west and south of Cus-
ter , the county seat of Custer
County , in a limestone fonna-
tion and is believed by geo-
Foists to be an extinct geyser
channel. 'rh ( ! National Monument -
ment will embrace an area of
1,280 acres.
'fhis cave , which was explored
as late as 1900 , has been found
to consist of a series of chambers
connected by narrow passages
with numerous galleries , the
walls of which are encrusted with
a magnificent layer of calcite
crystal. 'l'he opening of the cave
is situated in Hell Canyon , the
walls of which are high and
preci pi to us.
' { 'he surface of the country in
which the cave IS located consists
of a high rolling plateau about
6,000 feet above sea level. 1.'he
area is almost entirely co\'ercd b ) '
a forest of bulJ pinc , a consider.
able portion of which is mer.
chantable , while the remaindeI
