Envy is one of the worst things
in the world. It makes men hate
each other. It makes men tell
lies and sometimes swear to them.
It makes men bear false witness
against their neighbors. Some-
times it makes men kill each
other. Whenever we see ! a man
who has succeeded , we wonder
how he found it possible when
there is so much envy in the
world. We can picture the strug-
gle as he climbed up the ladder
with a lot of little fellows hang-
ing onto his coat tai 1 and trying
to hold him back. Children learn
to ervy while they are very
young. It asserts itself in the
school room and when an excep-
tiona11y bright pupil forges ahead
of his class , he becomes the vic-
tim of the petty persecutions of
his jealous schoolmates. Some-
times they carry tales to the
teaches , and these tales are not
always true. He may be a com-
panionable fellow , and a gener-
ous schoolmate , but they hate
him because he is smarter than
they are and can do things that
they cannot do , and they envy
him , and envy begets hate. How
true it is that men are but chil-
dren of a larger growth. In the
school : of life men bear the deep-
est hatred toward the men they
envy most. They do not dislike
the man , but Oh , they are so
jealous of his ability. Every
honor that comes to him means
pain to them. Because they can-
not stand in his place and do the
things that he does , and succeed
as he has succeeded , they become
the most miserable of men. With
what craftness they plot the destruction -
truction of the successful man ;
with what relentless energy they
persecute him ; how they rejoice
in any misfortune that may come
to him. In schooldays it was always -
ways the poor scholar that spent
t his time in envying he who stood
at the head of his class and it was
he that failed when the examina-
tions were held. In the school of
life , it is the weak who spent
their time in seeking the undoing
of the strong and fail when the
test is applied to them. Envy
has robbed them of their own re-
It is easier to secure an election
than it is to secure a re-election.
The first time a man comes be-
fore the people he has no record
to be criticized. I-Ie makes his
campaign on promises. But
when he comes before the people
and asks for a renomination , his
record will always speak for its ,
self and the people will hear and
act accordingly. If he secures
the re-nomination it is the high-
est tribute that could be paid
him , for it is an endorsement ,
not only of himself but of the
record he has made , but when he
receives a third endorsement , the
honor is all the greater'--hoth he
and his works have stood the test
of time. This is the happy posi-
tion in which Hon. E. J. Burkett
finds himself. A young and
practically unknown attorney , he
asked the people of the first dis-
trict for a seat in congress and
secured it. Twice he has come
back to the people submitted his
record and asked their approval ,
and it has been freely given.
This fact stands as the highest
testimonial to his merit.
It may be that before the end
of this year he will receive recog-
nition , not only at the hands of
the people of the first district ,
but at the hands of the people of
the entire state , and be sent to
represent Nebraska in the senate
of the United States Mr. Bur-
kett is worthy of the honor. It
will be an honor , not only to him ,
but to the people of the first con-
gressional 1 district who " ( ISCO"- .
ered" him and gave him the opportunity -
portunity to develop the splendid
traits that made possible his fine
record in congress. He has fairly
earned promotion , and as much
as the people would regret to lose
his services in the house , they
would rejoice with him in his advancement -
vancement to the senate.
hlr . Lincoln Steffins writing in
the current issue of l\-IcClurc's
magazine , defines the enemies of
the republic , not as political bosses -
es and "grafters , " but as the
business men who bribe legislators -
ors to' betray the best interests of
the people. Using the Missouri
boodle cases as an example , he
points out that political corrup-
tion of this sort is nothing short
of treason because a revolution
is being brought about by bribes
as surely as it could be brought
about b ) bullets. vIr. Steffins'
reasoning is good and his conclusions -
clusions logical. Municipal graft
has long been the shame of the
cities and the discovery that such
graft is only a part of a system
that extends from council chamber -
ber to state legislature and from
state legislature to thc United
States congress , reveals an eco-
nomic condition unique in the his-
tory of governments. It is a
spectacle well calculated to aplJilll
the reformer. The greatest diffi-
culty in dealing with a revolution
of this kind , is to know where to
begin. Grafters erect no sign
posts in the labyrinths of corrup-
tion. Hope lies in the fact that
the great body of American peo-
ple have not yet become corr pt-
cd.trtJe fight against graft has
begun and men like Folk and
Crow have sounded an alarm that
will not bc silenced until the peo-
ple have conquered

In view of the treatment received -

it would be about the right thing
to make him a delegate at large.

The passing of the fusion con-
vention takes much of the pictur-
esqueness out of politics. There
was something impressive in the
silence that preceeded the report
of the "conference committee. "
There was something dramatic
in the manner in which democrat
and populist clasped , hands and -
swore by the beard of IIo1com '
that they would stand together .
and save the country. But after the . 1 "
populist ceased to get enough to
make it interesting , a fusion con-
vention lost all its charm for the _
sight-seer. - - . . . -
The democrats arc having \
trouble in finding lambs that are
willing to be led to the slaugh-

nominated invincible county "
ticket , the visible supply of dem-
ocratic patriots has decreased.
Very few men care to enter a
race when defeat is certainty.
