TEDDY ROOSEVKI/T'S campaigning is
a fine art. Teddy is the real stuff , every
where and all the time , the typical and
all-around American of the century.
It , as the Democrats affirm , the Ding-
ley bill is the mother of trusts , it must
be admitted that quite a large family of
children was bom before their mother.
THE Democratic platform seems to be ,
"No Populist need apply for nomination
to office ; we want the plums ourselves ;
but for heaven's sake vote for us , first
last and all the time. "
SINCE Mr. Bryan is swinging around
the circle so gayly , he might devote one
of his single-topic speeches to a discus
sion of the validity of the fifteenth
amendment to the constitution to which
be is so devoted ; also to the "consent
of the governed' * in North Carolina.
" I " said William .
"WHAT denounce , J.
Bryan when a congressman , "is a pro "
tective tariff ; it is false economy and the
most vicious political principle that has
ever cursed this country. " Since then
the gold standard was the most vicious ,
and now imperialism is the most vicious
principle that ever cursed this country.
THE Republican party stands for the ! Fr
imperialism of opportunity , the domiu-j do
ion of achievement , the kingdom or be
manly labor , royal remuneration for
loyal service , If this be imperialism let in
the enemies of the republic make the inwb
most of it. The party which freed th4
black man , gave work to the white man
and deals justly with the brown man ,
does not hesitate to go before the sovereign
eign voters of the country and ask for
endorsement. Beatrice Express. to
THERE is no reason on earth why the sta
Republicans in the Fifth congressional am
district should not win out , this year , pa
and send to cougress a man who will be am
a representative iii every sense of the mu
word. In Mr. Morlan the Republicans hei
present a man of brains , a man of affairs ,
a man of energy. Mr. Morlan is not an
orator. There is nothing of the cheap
about him. He talks '
spell-binder com Pre
mon sense and sticks to facts. With Coi
this sort of a man to fight , the Pops sul
have a hard prospect ahead. Superior

date for congress from the Fifth district , We
is one of those hard-headed , cool fellows at
who never get excited over anything , of
and he never loses sight of the 'squirrel. '
He is one of those common , every-day
sort of fellows who find their greatest Sui
comfort in attending to business , and
when be goes after anything it will have
to hump itself if it gets away from him.
The interests of the Fifth district will be
in good hands when W.S.Morlan reaches

THE Republicans of this , the Fifth Un
congressional district , did wise
a thing gre ;
when they named W. S. Morlan of Mc- ens
Cook as their candidate for congress. me
No man in the district has a wider ac Evi
quaintance than Mr. Morlan , he having
lived in it for upwards of twenty-five
years. He is an honest , conscientious
gentleman , easy to approach , and has
hosts of friends among the farmers and
merchants about his gre ;
home in the western
ern part of the district , irrespective of
their party affiliations. While not a on
brilliant speaker , he is an active , energetic
getic worker and a good organizer and
will give his opponent a good race for
his money , and , nnless all signs fail , will T
come off a winner at the polls , next No and
vember. Hildreth Telescope. Sad
IT is clearly the opinion of the Phila
delphia Record that Aguinaldo ought
not to surrender on any terms.
THE Democrats , recognizing that they
have a monopoly of political mistakes ,
feel authorized to speak on the subject
THIS is the way it looks to the New
York Sun :
"Large crops ,
Few Pops. "
THE anti-imperialism "pipe
wont go with the average level-headed
American voter. It will take a more real
bugaboo than that to scare a majority of
the voters of this commonwealth into
the Democratic camp , next November ,
As THE campaign advances it becomes
more and more evident that the friends
of good government , true patriotism ,
sound money and protection to Ameri
can interests are uniting to oppose those
who stand for the reverse of these civic
THE Hon. George S. Boutwell , most
prominent of all the anti-imperialists ,
so-called , thinks that the financial panic
due to the common dread of Bryan's
election would only be a short one. We
also recall the case of the dear old
"hoss" that died of the diet of ten-penny
nails just as he was getting used to them.
ONE i of the pleasing prospects held out
by Mr. Bryan is free trade , which would
afford a particularly pleasing prospect to
the < commercial travelers , for all of the
drummers of England , Germany and
any other old country might profitably
be turned loose among us under such a
policy. Foreign drummers have been
IT J BEGINS to look as though the state
senatorial coon in the 2jth district had
about decided to "come down , " and
thus save Senator E. N. Allen the exers
cise and ammunition. The nomination
the Populists of the district , and the
subsequent endorsement by the Demo
crats , of J. H. Lincoln of Stockville ,
Frontier county , leaves small room for
doubt in the mind of those who have the
; interests of this district and of Ne
braska at heart what is their plain duty
the premises , who ought to be and
who must be the next state senator from
ayth district. The thoughtful , conservative - j
servative , safe elements among the vet
of the district of all parties have no |
Dlher course open to them than to flock
ourageously and earnestly and solidly
the support of Ed Allen , our present
state senator. Let it be determined once

That Impudent Cnpltnl "I. "
M. Zoln , when In England , was much
Impressed with the English use of. the
capital "I. " "Why j it , " he says , "that
the Englishman , ivlien he writes of
himself , should invariably use a capi
tal letter ? That tall 'I' which occurs
BO often In a personal narrative strikes
me as being very arrogant. A French
man , referring to himself , writes 'je'
with a small 'j ; ' a German , though he
may gratify all his substantives with
capital letters , employs a small 'I' in
writing Men ; ' a Spaniard , when he uses
the personal pronoun at all , bestows
a small 'y' on his 'yo , ' while he honors
the person lie addresses with a capital
'V. ' I believe indeed , though I am not
sulliciently acquainted with foreign
languages to speak with certainty on
that point , that the Englishman is the
only person in the world who applies
a capital letter to himself. "
M. Zola might have enforced his con
trasts still further by referring- the
Japanese , who really have no word for
"I. " In speaking of oneself in Japa
nese self depreciatory terms are used ,
such as "servant , " "the awkward per
son , " "junior , " while in speaking of or
J to other people complimentary terms
are employed , such as "senior , " "mas
ter , " "prince" ( used by young men in
addressing each other familiarly ) . The
most usual Japanese equivalent for
"I" is "watakushi , " which means liter
ally "selfishness. " Buffalo Commer
New York's Tenement HOIIHCB.
One of the indications of the im
provement of the masses in this city is
the gradual abolishment of the tene
ment , as the word is generally under
stood. The big rookeries , with their
small rooms , airless halls and rusty
fire escapes , are going out of existeuce
in the ordinary course of events , by
fire , tumbling down and being remov
ed to make room for modern struc
tures , and the people who live in them
are seeking more airy homes in the
suburbs or in the flats up town.
While the foreign element continues
to live in tenements for the lirst year
after reaching New York the children
of foreign parentage are not willing to
exist in the noisome quarters of the
east and west sides. They crave more
light , more air and cleanliness , and In
many cases they get it. Rapid transit
makes Harlem as accessible as Grand
street , and there is no occasion to live
in a down town tenement unless one
No new tenement houses are build
ing. The flathouse has taken its place ,
and in the course of time the foul bar
racks in which scores of families are
crowded will be a thing of the past and
only remembered as part of a distem
pered dream. New York Letter in

The children of the desert were filled
with awe when first the silence of the
primeval solitude was broken by the
puffing of the steam engine. Down at
the ) other end of the Cape to Cairo line
the , simple Matabele , when first con
fronted by a locomotive , were certain
that the strange machine was worked
by the labor of an indefinite number of
oxen , which they assumed were shut
up inside ; hence , when the engine stop ,
ped , they gathered in curious crowds ,
waiting to see the door open and the
oxen : come out , nor could they for many
days be persuaded that the power of tioi
the locomotive could come from other
than the strength of the ox.
The Arabs of the Sudan , more imag
inative than the Matabele , saw in the wil
fire horses of the railway one of the da
Djinus of the "Arabian Nights , " har o'c
nessed by the magic of the infidel to o'cat :
the long train of cars. The steam en 20t
gine was to them a living , sentient
being. Of which belief there is curi
ous evidence in the fact that on one
occasion a sheik made an impassioned
remonstrance against the cruelty of
making so small an engine draw so pui
huge a train. Windsor Magazine.
