The last legislature of Nebraska
kept every pledge made to the vo
ters during the campaign and be
cause of the fulfillment of these
pledges the Republican party can
appear before the voters and look
them squarely in the face
We are told that the m o n e y
luestion, or rather the question
oI 16 to 1, is settled. As “no
question is settled until it is set
led right,’’ the Republican party
has the proud distinction of being
the party which was right on the
uestion, anil the one which set
tled it. Where was the Demo
cratic party on that question?
Although William k\ Hearst
ind William J. Bryan occupied
rooms in the same hotel in Chi
sago. recently while they were in
that citv. they failed to call upon
each other and did not recognize
each other. It looks as if these
two Williams who at one time
were the closest of friends, have
fallen out. At present the indi
cations of fusion between them
are not flattering.
The present indications are that
She republican party will have
candidates for all of the various
offices which are to be filled at
the coming election. Whatever
Ihe result may be at the primar
ies, it is to be hoped that whoever
may be nominated will receive the
:all support of his party. The

choice of the majority should be
flic choice of all._
Governor George R. Sheldon
lias filed his name with the secre
tary of state as a candidate for
the republican nomination for
governor. There will be no op
position to his nomination. As
to his election, his record has been
so clean and every promise made
during his last campaign that a
bet at the rate of H> to 1 in favor
of his election would be safe.
No doubt the better element of
the community will be pleased to
learn that Governor Hughes of
New York has announced his wil
lingness to stand for another elec
tion as governor of his state. He
has done more to bring corrupt
corporations to justice than most
any other man. New Yorki as
well as the country at large, is to
be congratulated at the piospect
of having such a splendid man to
head their state ticket.
The republican party locally
must nominate men of such
character and party fealty as
will permit a united party to
stand behind them. This is a
republican year. Tatt will
carry Richardson county. The
success of the entire ticket
should not be jeopardized by the
nomination of anyone who has
spent his time fighting republi
can candidates in the past, and
whose conduct in the future is
a matter of doubt to those who
know him best.
Congressman pollard is to be
congratulated upon the fact,
which is now evident, that he
will have no opposition for the
republican nomination for con
gress this year. The splendid
record Mr. Pollard has made
and his well known popularity
with the farmers and the people
of the smaller towns has evid
ently convinced those who have
opposed him in the past that it
would be useless to attempt to
defeat him this year under the
primary system where the great
mass of voters select their can
didates. There is no doubt but
what Mr. Pollard will be nomi
mated and elected by a very
large majority.
Mr. Kern, the democratic nonr
inee for the vice-presidency, has
the faculty of seeing and believ
ing in both sides of most ques
tions and has changed his views
often enough so that he has been
on both sides of most national
questions which have agitated the
public mind within recent years.
He was a strong Gold Democrat
in one campaign and an enthusi
astic Free Silverite in the other.
He was against the hauling down
of the flag in the Philippines, and
then heartily in favor of it- Not
but recently he was strongly op
posed to the anti injunction plank;
now it is just what he wants. As
an example of how his views ap
peal to the people of Indiana, we
might add, as a side light, that
he w’as beaten for governor in
1900 by 25,000 and by S4.000 ma
jority in 1904.
Granting that Bryan is advo
cating some measure of reform
that would be beneficial to the
country at large; can he in four
years put them in force.
He says one term is all he
wants, that he will not accept a
second nomination.
The senate is republican and
cannot be changed for four
years, therefore doesn’t it look
as if |{r3’an wants to be presi
dent simply for Bryan’s sake,
merely for the honor Bryan
would get and not for an3r par
ticular good he could do? If
not he should at least want a
second term, in the hope the
political complexion of congress
might be changed, that he
might be able to put in force
some of his populistic notions.
No the only way to get a re
vision of the tariff, a law regu
lating trusts and corporations,a
postal saving bank and currency
reform law, is to elect an execu
tive in harmony with congress,
and this we believe the people
will do.
It is a rumor over the state
that the residents of Lincoln
will cast their votes this fall al
most unanimously for Bryan.
The reason given is that his
nomination will bring visitors
and delegations to Lincoln from
other states, who will spend
their money there, and thus
make business good.
Our advice to Lincoln is to
“Look a little out”. There
never was a legislature held in
Nebraska at which Lincoln was
not on hand clamoring for some
thing, either a public building,
an appropriation, or something.
Everything she has was given
her by Republicans. Her Capi
tol, her university, her asylum,
her penitentiary, her tine govern
ment building, and her state
fair, which brings more people
to Lincoln each year than Bryan
will bring in a decade.
The state of Nebraska is Re
publican and its legislature in
future will be Republican. The
House of Representatives is Re
publican and will continue to be.
It Lincoln proposes to change
its politics for the sordid reason
that a few visitors and delega
tions will spend their money
there we advise her to look a
little out. Some of the horny
handed farmers who go up to
the legislature each biennial to
make laws and grant appropria
tions might get their bristles up,
and let Mr. Bryan provide for
future appropriations and pub.
lie buildings, and they might
even become convinced that
some other city is entitled to the
crowds which attend the state
fair each year, and remove it
from Lincoln.
Shortly before the democratic
National Convention Mr. Bryan
spoke of Hearst of New York as
a great and unselfish patriot. He
mentioned in detail hisservicesto
his country and spoke in most
complimentary terms of the
Hearst party known as the “In
dependent". The wish was ex
pressed that Hearst would see lit
to have his organization endorse
the democratic ticket and support
its candidates- The national con
vention of the Independent party
was held in Chicago this week and
Hearst as temporary chairman
said in part:
“The Democratic vanguard is a
Falstaff’s army. It is led bv a
knight in a motley array of modi
fied professions and comprised
principles, of altered opinions and
retracted statements. It is of
ficered by such soldiers of fortune
as Sullivan and Hopkins, and
Murphy and McClellan, by Tom
Tagtrart, the roulette gambler.
and Torn Ryan, the Wall street
gambler, and Belmont, the race
track gambler. It is composed of
such political mercenaries as Bai
ley of the Standard Oil and Wil
liams of theSnuthern railway and
Ilinky Dink and Bathhouse John
and Red Duffy and Nigger Mike
all harmonized at last and all
marching together in a rhythmic
cadence strongly suggestive of the
lockstep. It’s Falstaff’s army,
whose banner bears on one side a
watchword for the people and on
the other a password tor the
trusts, whose only object is office
at any cost, whose motto is "after
us the deluge. ”
Assuming that Mr. Bryan him
self, is all that his most ardent
admirers claim him to be. a great
lawyer, an enlightened statesman,
an inspired patriot, still a man is
known by the company he keeps
and no decent Democrat can toler
ate his free companions. No hon
est citizen can let down the bars
of office to such a band of bood
lers and bravos. No prudent citi
zen will support a combination to
which Taggart supplies a candi
date and Parker a platform, for
which Fran will pay the freight,
and the people will pay the pen
Bryan appeals to the farmer
both for his vote and his money'.
The efforts of democracy this
year is to secure the farmer
vote. In spite of 116.00 a ton
for hay, not withstanding new
wheat is worth 80 cents, white
corn 75 cents. Hogs $6.00 and
all other farm products in pro
portion, Mr. Bryan appeals for
a change in administration, in
laws and customs, and asks the
farmers support to accomplish
the change.
I read a democratic speech
delivered last week to a crowd
of laboring men at Wiliamantic,
Conn., in which the orator prom
ised that food stuff would be
cheapened if they' would elect
Bryan. That is a good speech
for Connecticut but the orator
would promptly be muzzeled if
he tried it in Nebraska,
i But the orator was telling the
truth. Food stuffs, as well as
everything else, is cheapened
under democratic administra
In the democratic platform is
written the following: “Mater
ial reductions should be made in
the tariff upon the necessaries
of life. ’*
The farmer of Richardson
county raises nothing but the
necessaries of life.
Take wheat for instance, for
which you are now getting 80
cents. Camida is rapidly grow
ing into the world's greatest
wheat country. Manitoba,Sas
katchan, Alberta and other por
tions of Canada are now raising
millions of bushels of wheat.
Eyery year the great northwest
Canadian country is settling up
with thousands of settlers and
every year the area of cultivated
land increases and the amount
of wheat raised increases in
proportion. This wheat is
raised on ten dollar an acre
land. You wheat is raised on
land ten times as valuable.
The republican party erected
a tariff that says the American
farmers wheat must be protect
ed. The Canadian wheat can
not be sent across the border to
compete with American wheat.
Mr. Bryan says “this must be
changed.” The eastern orator
says, “We will reduce the price
of food stuff if Bryan is elected.
The democratic platform says,
“Material reductions should be
made in the tariff upon the nec
essaries of life.” To accom
plish this, to flood this country
with Canadian wheat raised on
cheap land to compete with
your wheat, to destroy the pro
tection the republican party has
given the farmer, under which
farm products are now so valu
able, Mr. Bryan asks for farm
er’s vote and farmer’s dollars,
Such ad appeal is a reflection
upon the intelligence of the Ne
