Rev Gusta v Henkeljiann
505 3rd street West
Judge Williams claims that through
his efforts the state of Nebraska has
been saved G000000 by the reduction
of freight rates The judge does not
explain who has been benefited by
that 6000000 but he says that the
railroads have not felt the reduction
to any great extent that their net
oarnlngs are as great as before the cut
in rates owing to the Increased volume
of business handled by the railroads
since the 15 per cent reduction Now
may be the judge is right so lets not
jump at conclusions but let us figure a
little and see First example Sup
pose a school teacher is employed to
teach a school at 40 per month the
school consists of forty scholars which
would be a rate of 1 per month Now
40 per month is not too much for the
teacher but 1 per scholar per month
is too high a rate for patrons of the
school say Fifty cents per scholar
per month is sufficient and the board
of directors notifies the teacher that
50 cents per scholar per month is all
that she is allowed but that she may
maintain the 40 per month by in
crease volume of business that is she
can take eighty scholars instead of the
forty as before I guess the judge is
right the increased volume of bunre s
would maintain the net revenue i Hie
teacher all right but dont you t ink
that che teacher would feel the reduc
tion in rates If an individual had
contracted to perform some specific
work for a given amount let us say for
example to carry a fifty pound sack
of flour a certain distance for 21 cents
per sack and was able by reasonable
physical effort to make ten trips a
day his requirements lor sustenance
of himself and family being 250 per
day his employer getting less for
handling the flour found it necessary
in order to continue in business to cut
the carrying price to 20 cents per sack
The individual doing the transporta
tion would necessarily have to take an
other sack on his back on some of his
trips and if the price was cut to 12
cents per sack he would have to carry
100 pounds instead of fifty At the
same time neither he nor his employer
would be benefited by the reduction
although someone else undoubtedly
would be Under the circumstances it
is very plain to be seen that the indi
vidual transporting the flour and the
one furnishing the capital have mut
ual interests and must stand together
to proetct each other or both suffer
and those with whom they have no
business relations profit by their not
doing so as the selling price of the
flour may be controlled by an entirely
different combination The railroads
are the employees and the farmers and
citizens are the employers The de
crease in freight rates does not mater
ially effect the local merchant The
freight on a pair of shoes or a suit of
clothes a yard of cloth or a pound of
merchandise is very small indeed and
the reduction effecting it would be in
finitely small but in the aggregate it
is the very life blood of the railroads
Neither does it effect to any great ex
tent the farmer The curtailment of
service the lack of facilities and the
stopping of developement will how
ever very materially effect him not
only in his daily business but in the
prospective enhancement of his lands
The broad minded farmer can appreci
ate that if the times are good money
plentiful and the consumers have the
wherewith to purchase He will pros
per The railroads are the very arter
ies through which the commercial life
flows If they are restricted or har
rassed stagnation follows and will seek
out those who imagined they were only
spectators Many are now astonished
to find that their financial and even do
mestic affairs are concerned although
they cannot connect them with the
railroads It is the great mercantile
and office holding class the non-producers
that are grasping more than
the lions share
The wage earner finds it more diffi
cult to save a few dollars now than
ever before and the opportunities to
get ahead are not as much open to him
as a few years ago The non working
class is continually using his skillful
combinations and shrewd business
sagacity to make further inroads on
the modest share rightfully belonging
to the producer the transporter and
the consumer Neither the farmer or
the transportation companies are get-
Iting more for the production or
portation of beef mutton or pork but

Neither the farm
er or the railroads are getting more for
the production or transportation
someone certainly is getting more and
it is this class that will never be sat
isfied he wants more and will get it
from either end unless held in check
Nebraska with her two great thorough
fares running from one end of the
state to the other pouring into the
laps of the citizens tribute from China
Japan India Australia the Pacific
northwest and California which in
cludes the greater percentage of the
business handled paying thousands of
dollars daily to its citizens not pro-
duced in the state has little occasion
to antagonize these great Industries
and those who are advocating this will
find and are finding that they are not
popular The tide is turning from the
very force of justice and right think
ing which is always a predominating
element in the American people Un
til conditions reach their normal it is
absolutely necessary for all citizens
without reference to class organiza
tion or political affiliations to stand
united In opposition to these policies
that tend to deminlsh their welfare or
prosperity by adding additional bur
dens to their daily task Now fellow
countrymen according to the above
figures and figures dont lie Judge
Williams is right in claiming that the
increased volume of business will
maintain a certain amount of net rev
enue but let us consider the burdens
accompaning the increased volume of
business Be careful indeed in voting

The attention of the entire middle
west is now attracted toward the great
National Corn Exposition to be held in
Omaha Nebraska December 9th to
19th inclusive This coming Carnival
of Ceres which has already gained
such wide popularity is unique in its
distinction from the ordinary exposi
tion Its purpose is the Betterment
of Agriculture and its aim is to pro
mole this feature in an attractive and
entertaining way A few facts about
this great show will no doubt interest
all our readers
Buildings cover three blocks
Prizes aggregate over 50000
A complete model ketchen
Alfalfa palace
A full line of experiments by the
United States Department of Agricul
Lectures every day
An exhibition of corn wheat oats
and alfalfa never equalled
A complete moving picture enter
tainment showing scenes all over the
United States
Bands orchestras and parades
Every one in this county who can
should attend this great fair as noth
ing like it has ever been seen before
and it will be of a vast amount of
good and consequently needs the en
couragement of all
A number of exhibitors from this
county will be there to show what can

Nebraskans demand economy in the
administration of state affairs and un
der Governor Sheldon and republican
state officers they have had economy
in a degree never before attained in
the history of the state yet coupled
with the utmost efficiency and prompt
careful and businesslike conduct of
every department of the state govern
ment Take the insurance department
of the state auditors office as an ex
ample and compare with like depart
ments of other states In Nebraska
a total of three officers and employes
conducted this department efficiently
at a total cost of 5090 for the year of
1907 They supervised the operations
of 343 companies and collected cash
fees of 4407 Keep those figures in
mind For the same year the Kansas
department employed six persons
cost 12500 and collected 42S52
Colorado employed five persons cost
22000 supervised only 3CG companies
and collected in fees 5C242 North
Dakota employed five 25000 and col
lected fees 213S5 Minnesota em
ployed nine cost 21675 while Mis
souri employed nine cost 2S250 for
supervising 329 companies fourteen
fewer companies than were looked aft
er by the Nebraska department and
costing that state 231G0 more than
the Nebraska department for the same
year Doesnt that make a fine show
ing of economy and efficiency for the
republican state administration of Ne
braska During the past six years of
republican rule in Nebraska there has
been collected and turned over to the
state treasurer in insurance fees and
taxes the sum of 5C50S434 Should
not that record please the tax payer
and influence him to cast his vote for
the republican candidates in order to
retain that quality of honest able ef
ficient and economical state adminis

A Sailors Christening
The late Bishop Potter ome In his
early days had occasion to officiate at
a christening in a small fishing village
on the Massachusetts coast says a
writer In Harpers Weekly The
proud father n young fisherman awk
wardly holding his firstborn daughter
was visibly embarrassed under the
scrutiny of the many eyes In the con
gregation and his nervousness was not
decreased by the sudden walling of the
infant as they stood at the front
When the time for the baptism of
the babe arrived the bishop noticed
that the father was holding the child
bo that its fat little legs pointed toward
the font
Turn her this way he whispered
but the father -was too disconcerted to
hear or understand
Turn her feet around the bishop
whispered again but still there was no
response Tho situation was fast be
coming critical when an ancient mari
ner in the back of the church came to
the rescue Putting his -weather beaten
hand to his mouth he roared across
the room Head her up to the wind
Throw Em Down Babies
I wonder mused the young father
what there is in a babys makeup
that prompts him to drop things It
isnt really dropping though Its
throwing My baby is good about
sleeping and behaving when there Is
company but everything he can snatch
he immediately llings to the floor Ive
noticed and known a lot of others too
who do the same thing Its not only
the joy of throwing but the delight In
seeing somebody pick the stuff up
Babies certainly seem to take a fiend
ish delight in watching their fathers
and mothers or nurses pick up the
toys and other things which they
throw out of their beds carriages and
chairs My boy used to be quite pleas
ed -with a rubber toy attached by a
string to his carriage so that it just
escaped the ground He would grin
and dangle it for hours Now he yells
as soon as he discovers it is fastened
and the minute we give It to him loose
bang it goes on to the ground while
he laughs aloud in his joy Theres
probably a reason and the psycholo
gists will discover it some day Ex
The Holy Grail
From a book reviewed a passage is
quoted in which mention is made of
tho holy grail the sang real or true
blood of God This used to be a com
mon mistake and so learned a man
as Thomas Warton in his Remarks
on Spensers Imitations From Old Ro
mances writes The holy grale that
is the real blood of our Blessed
Saviour But this is wrong It is
the holy grale or vessel and does not
mean real blood though it contained
the real blood collected by Joseph of
Arimathea It was made from a dia
mond and emerald which fell from the
crown of Satan when he fought with
Michael M do Villemarque who has
written about Armoric legends says
that this jewel -was a diamond The
-word greal is old French as I under
stand for I have no knowledge my
self that it is so In the legend of
rercival it is shown that the grail is
a vessel The holy grail Fercival
heard whispered by one voice after
another Then from the shining ves
sel streamed an endless supply of the
costliest dishes and wines London
