Speculation as to E.J. Burkctts
successor continues to bc thc
r chicf topic of political con vcr-
. sation. About every republican
in the district has "been mention-
cd" as a prospective .candidatc.
Prophets and wiseacres , clairvoyants -
voy-ants ; ; nd ward heelers have all
contributed to thc speculations of
. probabilities and still thc question -
, tion is in thc air , so to spcak.

by announcing that ieisacancli-

port. Lancaster Coun ty is as

rr like to see Judge Jessets in con-
: . grass if hc cares to go. Should
he prefer to retain his present

c-edit upon the district.

courage and increasing opposition

, , A PRIMARY LAW.
Among thc legislation which
should receive thc attention of
. . . he ensuing legislature is a new
p . primary law insuring honest
, nominations Kansas will prob-
1.1 ably pass such ! a law this winter
fJ and Nebraska should do lilewisc.
\ . 'l'herc are a hundred lawyers
. in thc state who could frame a
law of this character that would
pass muster with the courts.
Such legislation would not make
any material difference in this
county , , but in many of thc coun-
, tics of thc state such an act
would improve thc character
of the nominations and would
eventually destroy the pernicious
influence of machine poJitics.
THE PRESIDENT-'S INTER-
President Roosevelt has inaug-
urated :1 : campaign looking to the
amendment of thc interstate com-
mcrcc law so that freight rates
shall be under government super-
vision. For years freight rates
have been controlled by thc several -
eral states and because of thc
pernicious influence of the rail-
roads in politics , practically nothing -
ing of benefit fie the shipping
public has been accoll1plilJ'cI. !
Under the interstate commerce
law as it now is , the commission
can do nothing more than : cake
recommendations which arc regarded -
gardcd or not regarded as thc
railroads please. The president
now expresses his impatience
at state control and his
intention to relieve thc commis- I
Rion of its impotence by putting
the interstate rates under governmental -
mental control. The rai lroads I
are preparing a campig'n of resis-
tancc to this which is said will be
the supreme effort of their exis-
'l'l1c President realizing the
hold that these mighty corpora-
tions ha \ 'e up0n many of the con-
gressmen , says that he can do
nothing without the active
\ cooperation -
operation of thc public at larg-e.
'Ve believe that congressman
Burkett will lend his aid to the
accomplishmcnt of this reform
which is of such great importance
to time shippers of Nebraska , but
ne\'cr the less it would be a good
idea for our people to write Mr.
Burlctt of their wishes. By thc
way , when hil\'C thc American
people ever had such a true and
courageous a friend as Theodore

Judge 'l'uckcr's desire to learn
the \\ishes , of his pcbplc on the
quest ion of a new road law before
hc takes his seat as senator is
very commcndablc , If thc legis-
laturc was composcd of mcn who
would con ult and advise with
thc people before acting , the results -
sults would bc of far more benefit
to the public.

Juctgc BetijBaker of Omaha was
recently appointed associate justice j -
ticc of the New i\lexico supreme
court by President Hoosevclt.
'J'hc word comes now that hc has
been summarily removed by order
of the presidcnt for cause. How
any man can prostitute thc high
office of Judge and abuse the con-
fidencc and trust reposed ! ; iu him
by thc President of the Uni ted
States is beyond thc comprchcn-
sionot thc a vcrag-c ci t zen. How-
ever , Baker's acquaintances arc
not greatly surprised as his record
as district judge in Doug-lasCoun-
ty was not above su pi.ion.
