An editorial appeared in
last weeks Rici'UHLU'AN , the
substance of which was that
l-t'epresentatiyo Taylor , of
Menia , gave indications of an
inclination to cut down the ap
propriations asked for by the
State University. The Re
publican took the position that
the people ol the slate were
inclined to be more liberal
with the State University than
they were in some other insti
tutions desiring appropriat
ions , and that Mr. Taylor
should not use his influence to
cut down the appropriations
they asked for.
In reply t'o that editorial ,
Air. Taylor has submitted the
following communication for
publicatian :
Lincoln , Nebr. , r2-2l-W. (
ICditor Republican ,
My dear Mr. Myers : -
In your last issue you quote
meas opposing the Univer
sity. You do me injustice
which 1 believe you will con
cede when you hear my side
of the matter. This legislature
like all before it , has certaii
state institutions and State
departments to provide for
and with which to do this has
a certain amount of money.
Now we can't give any of these
all they want or even all they
may need any more than a
farmer with a limited or cer
tain income can buy every
thing he wants or even ever ) '
thing he needs. The lev7 for
all otherstateinstitutions ( two
soldier's homes , two norm
al schools , school for the deaf ,
school for the blind , junior
normalsthree insane asylums ,
State penitentiary , two re
form schools , hoine for the
friendless , home for fallen
women , Othopedic hospital ,
etc , all the departments of
state executive , judicial and
legislative ) in fact , every item
of expense is only li mills ,
Can be put in every
article bought from
our well selected
lines of drugs and
drngists' sundries ,
because only goods
are ogered that are
of a known class and
value. The selection
is large and the price
right. You can de
pend on this.

while the University alone
vts b ; statute , 1 mill. In
hort this institution gets one
lifth of all the- slates income-
by direct laves- besides it I KM (
an income from other sources
of approximately $ f)0,0)0 ( ) ( ) , [
giving it about 81 , 'J" > 0JOO. ( |
I am notcMiiplainingat this-
amount , but here was thedif-j
ferena- tui < n the Univer
sity and mvhJ'M , they wanted
and f \\ill admit needed S'JU5-
OUU mntc out ot the general
fund ol the state. 1 perbiuul-
ed tin' tegentb to reduce this
by . : I'JO.OUO , IK cause we have
not I In- money and 1 for one
am dctt'iMined that we shall
not Inrstravigant. .
Our University has grown
to be a huge school with , ' { ,000
students , its needs are great ,
but we must care for these
other institutions and we must
cut our pattern according to
the cloth. Von do me an in
justice , 1 believe , from lack
of knowledge of the facts and
an acquaintance of your rep
resentative. I am a crank on
education , yet I am a farmer
and tax payer and it would be
against nature lor me to for
get these fellows.
Mr. Taylor stale ; in his
communication that he did use
his influence to cut down the
University's appropriation to
the extent of $120,000. That
IheliEi'umji AN'S information
was reliable can , therefore , not
be disputed and the question
resolves itself into a difference
of opinion as to whether or
lot Representative Taylor
acted wisely in using his in-
lluence to have this reduction
Mr. Taylor no doubt be
lieves that he acted wisely and
in accordance with the wibhes
of his constitutions but I he
REPUBLICAN believes that he
is wrong in the attitude he
has taken. It Mr. Taylor
knew Ihe conditions at I ho
university , knew that il isser-
iously handicapped for lunds
and that it is losing some ol
its strongest instrnctois be
cause other institutions are
able to pay better salaries he
would not ask that the appro
priation le cut down $ lL'0KH ( ) .
Moreover , if Ihe people knew
the circumstances and realiz
ed the necessity for flu- full
amount of the appropriation
they' would insist upon Mr.
Taylor withdrawing his ob
jection and lighting for Ihe
total amount ol the appropri
ation akfd lur.
us mis WAY nru.
lOvory man , \\lio wauls to ,
can run for county ollice on
either of the party tickets.
TCvery man is supposed to
know his own mind along this
line and just how many fi lends
he has who will come to his
aid. Yet , Myers , of the Re
publican at the How , does not
grant this right to the people ,
lie has been writing to. and
urging men by word of mouth
to announce themselves as
candidates for office , tor no
other purpose as we can see ,
but to gel their money for an
nouncements. As far as we
are concerned every man who
wants to can run for ollice on
the Republican ticket , lie
will be treated right by us , and
if he is the right kind of a
man , and he no doubt would
be if nominated , he will re
ceive our suppoit after the
primary. t'ourier-Tribuue.
How is this Jlerbert ? Have
you been writing to parties ,
urging them to be candidates
simply to gel their money for
announcements ? That looks
bad , coming as it does from
one of the bietheru. lleucou
The above article appealed
in the last weeks issue of the
Ouster County Beacon. 1 be
lieve that the Kditorol an ws-
paper in his- editorial work
should have the same regard
for truth anil honesty that he
has in private conversation.
This policy some editois d.
not think should be followed
and persue the opposite policy
of saying anything that will
tend loprejudice their readers ,
and help to accomplish the
purpose they have in view.
This is the policy followed
by Brother Dunn , Kdilor of
the Callaway Courier Tribune ,
and that is the only explan
ation that 1 can give for the
above article. .lust why
Brother Dunn should see fit
tu make the charge he makes
in his editorial , can be ex
plained by me in but one pos-1
sible way. He stated before
he left Broken Bow that he' '
expected to have the leading '
Republican paper in Ouster1
county and he hopes to ac-J
complish that , lofty ambition
by trying to make people be-J that other Republican' '
papers in the county are not | i
to be trusted.
f do not blame Brother Dunn J
for desiring to place his pap
er , and tluougb it himself , at
the top of the pinnacle of in
fluence , but I believe that he
is pertming the policy which
wilMcnd rather to lose what
influence he has instead of
building u ; > one second to
The immortal Lincoln has
said. You can fool all of the
people part of the time and
part of the people all the time
but you cannot fool all of the
people all flu1 time. Brother
Dunn's policy of appealing to
prejudice on this misrepresen
tation of the facts may win for
a time , but he will not be able
to fool all of the people all
the time.
So fai as myuifmg letters
to men or prospective candi
dates , with reference to their
being a candidate or sec.i ring
their influence logetother men
to be a candidates , is concern
ed , I will s'jy that 1 ba\t ;
written two letters , neither of
which , however , justifies any
such charge as Brother Dunn
makes. One of the letters
was.written to a man who was
mentioned as a possible can
didate for supervisor , and I
wrote him asking if he would
be a candidate and told him
that some of the people had
spoken ol his chances as be
ing very good , but I did not
ask him to publish any an
nouncement in the columns of
my paper , and had this indi
vidual done so , it , would not
have cost him a cent , so that
my motive cannot possibly be
construed as a desiie to se
cure financial remuneration
from my letter through gel-
ting his announcement.
The second letter was writ
ten to a man who had no idea
whatever of being a candidate
and wis simply and solely ,
written lor information. The
Republican's business is to
furnish the news anil il it can
be obtained bv corresonrlence
proposes to get it.

does not merely form a back
ground. You will recognise the
village smart clerk , the fellows
who hang around the depot , those
always in front of the postoQice
and never get any mail , the old

keeps the general store , the
station agent , the noisy fellow
who is alwas talking about sub

vaguely , the tousled hair boy who
has been in swimming , the vill
age orphan who waits on the
table in the boarding-house , and
many otherssome playing lead
ing parts , some have not a word
to say , but all are part of the
picture. George Ade has been
able to write a play like "The
County Chairman" , because he
was brought up in a little village
of the west himself and knows
just what he is talkingabout. .
