'IS IT A DEAL ?
The conclusion may not be
justified , but from appearances
it looks like a political hen is on.
To a proper understanding of
the present situation it is neces
sary to hark back to Senator
Hurkett's candidacy for senator.
Ross Hammond of Freemontwas
the real father of that boom and
he reared the child with consu-
mate ability until its maturity.
Then came Brown's candi
dacy. The real manager of this
contest was Will Rose of Lin-
coin who was deputy Attorney
General under Brown. Rose
became chairman of the repub
lican state committee and by
his labor contributed greatly to
Senator Brown's success.
liurkett is under great obli
gations to Hammond.
Brown is under equally great
obligations to Rose.
Right here is where the wires
Elmer Stephenson of the old
D. E. Thompson machine is col
lector of internal revenue. The
new element demanded that he
be decapitated without unneces
sary delay , Rose and Hammond
both became candidates and the
two senators became victims of
insomnia. Hose is a splendid
fellow with good ability. Hammond
mend is a prince with exception ,
al ability. The Tribune is for
Hammond for king if he is a

MEANS MUCH !
To the level-headed young man or wo
man , a Bank Account , added to a de
termination to make it larger , means
much. The names of quite a number
of such young people may be found on
our books. Why not join the list ?
A large sum is not necessary to open an
account at this bank , flake the start
FALLS CITY STATE BANK
Everyboby was wondering
how the tangle would be unravel ,
ed. Brown couldn't throw Rose
down. Burkett would be an ingrate -
grate if he deserted Hammond.
Well , we haven't been heaing
much about the matter lately.
Things seem to have "kind a1'
settled down and the public
commenced to lose interest.
But now comes a lew news
papers , most of them published
by postmasters , saying that
Rose would be a good candidate
for Supreme Judge.
That looks to us like a deal.
Hammond will be appointed
to Stephenson's place and Rose
will become a candidate to sue-
But , if we are correct in this
deduction , we predict breakers
Judge Sedgwick has made one
of the best supreme judges Ne
braska eves had. He is a man
of sterling and unquestioned in
tegrity , unusual legal attain ,
ments and has enjoyed years of
experience both as a lawyer and
a judge. The people of this
state will not permit a political
deal to make a plaything of the
highest court in the state.
The subject was under discus
sion among a group of lawyers
of different political faith the
other day in Lincoln. It was
the unanimous opinion of these
men that if a deal of this kind
looking to the retirement of a
man like Judge Sedgwick to
make a place for Will Rose was
attempted the bar of the state ,
without regard to party , would
publicly protest. Will Rose has
earned a reward and we hope he
will receive his wage , but it will
prove disastrous to his hopes if
the office of supreme judge shall
be made a matter of barter and
the court of last resort be lower ,
ed to the level of political deals.
