V.G.LYFORD FOR REGENT
The Tribune is very glad to
announce that V. G. Lyford of
Falls Git ) * has finally consented
to the use of his name for regent
of the state university. Mr. Ly
ford , while ahvay.s a loyal party
man , is in no sense a politician.
He would hardly consent to the
use of his name for a political
office. But he is a business man
of high character , possessing tea
a great dtcrec ; that sort of com
mon sense which men call execu
tive ability. He believes in edu
cation and is very modern in his
ideas along this line. We feel
safe in saying that the state has
never had a regent better quali
fied than is Richardson county's
candidate , and his friends who ,
are legion , will see to it that his
claims receive proper recognition.
This county sends each year one
of the largest delegations of
young men and women to the
state university , and is entitled
to push the claims of Mr. Lyford
to the limit. A united effort
will bring this nomination to old
Richardson.and that's the kind of
an effort that will be made.
A tongue runs fast with a

Saturday was a busy day for
the local merchants as the town
was crowded with farmers all
day. If the present crop pros

will be full of money this fall.
A number of our merchants are

plan of a subscription band con

thing by other towns , push it
The Journal continues its fight
on the , beef trust. The service
which the front page , top of the
column , signed editorials of the
Journal have been to the govern
ment is inestimable. We have
no doubt that President Roosevelt
velt will gratefully remember the
author of these articles all of his
Thomas Lawson has been west
with his voice and press agent
and has returned east to say nice
things about us. Lawson is the
worst kind of a four ilusher who
got pinched in his own game and
is squealing about it. The only
trouble about a reform movement
is that it produces men of the
Lawson breed and gives to them
a prominence they do not deserve ,
The republican convention 5r
Lancaster county nominated can
didates for every county ofiic <
notwithstanding the opinion o
the supreme court which inferen
tially at least excepted the offici
of register and supervisor. Tb <
extent to which the supreme cour
went in the biennial election lav
opinion is being carefully' inves
tigated in order that the Stell ;
convention may be fully advisei
concerning the matter.
The Tribune guarantees the
promises of its advertisers. Our
more than two thousand subscrib
ers will confer a favor on this
paper by doing their trading with
our advertisers. In no other way
can you be of more assistance to
us than by so doing.
The Journal makes inquiry as
to the reason for holding the
county convention in Stella.
While the republicans of the
county ma ) be somewhat in
doubt as to the policy of the
party being any of the Journal's
business , we suggest that Henry
Wellcr , ol Stella , and W. W.
Brown , of Jefferson , might en
lighten it if the question were
The federal grand jury has re
turned twenty-six indictments
as , the result of its investigation
of the beef trust. Bills wore re
turned against some of the big
gest packers in the trust , charg
ing them with violations of the
Sherman anti-trust law , and one
count in the indictment against
the Schwarxchild & Suhburger
campanv charges the illegal pay
ing of rebates to railroad com
panies. The first step towards
enforcing the federal law with
reference to the beef trust , is
very important and gives to the
people the promise of ultimate
relief and to the trust a note of
warning to the effect that its re
lations with people , must in the
end be based on the Roosevelt
"square deal system. "
We believe that there is no
such thing as permanently tainted
money. If the wickedest man in
Falls City were to go to church
and put a dollar in the contribu
tion box , that dollar would be as
potent for good as would a coin
of equal value deposited by the
deacon who sat in the next seat.
In a sense , all money is tainted.
Every dollar that passes into a
church treasury , or into the ex
chequer of a charitable society
has most likely at some time
passed over the saloon bar or
across the poker table. Ethically
speaking it has become tainted.
But if money can become ethi
cally tainted , it can also be ethi
cally disinfected. We hold that
when money that has been taint
ed is accepted and used for a good
purpose , all the sin germs are
destroyed and that it becomes
This is not the age ol graft.
The county is not going to the
devil , neither is the majority ot
the people dishonest. This is
the age of the fearless and hon
est official , and in his wake lies
the exposure of corruption in
public life. The world is said
to be made up of two classes ,
the caught and the uncanght.
Whether or not this be true ,
certain it is that there are a good
many of the first class at the
present writing. There h a s
always been corruption , and
there will always be corruption
in the present state of man's
morality , but there i no more
now than formerly ; the only
reason for thinking so , is that
honesty on the part of certain
public officials has brought to
our view those things which dis
honest public officials permitted
to remain hidden. Such men as
La Follette , Folk , Roosevelt ,
Jerome and Deneen would have
been impossible under the politi
cal conditions of twenty years
ago. No , my pessimistic friend ,
the world is not all dishonest
the world is growing better and
purer t a rapid rate. It is grow
ing popular to be honest , almost
as popular as it is to be rich.
The Falls City Exchange mills
are being overhauled and will be
equipped with modern improve
ments. The mill will be ready tc
receive grain in a short time , am
special attention will be givet
the farmers' trade , as the nev
improvements and cheapness o
manufacturing will enable tht
mill to give them good returns.
