1 hereby announce m\selt as a candidate lor
the office of Representative subject to the act
ion of the republican voters at Uu* primaries to
bo held Tuesday. September 1st, IW.
K. O. Zook,
J. Rock Williamson of dram Precinct an*
nonnci - himself as a candidate for mentis r of
the legislature from Richardson county, sub
ject to the will of the republican voters. Being
a veteran ami an old resident of kicliaidson
county, which he lias served in the capacity of
-horifT, lie trusts the eitiaens of ttic* county
know him well enough to pass intelligently
upon the question of his candidacy.
Ah a candidate for the nomination for reprtv*
fentative on the republican ticket, I deem it
proper to announce my views on some of the
more Important matters that will conn* up Vs**
fore the next legislature.
As a republican I lielieve the republican
party should nominate men whose views are in
harmony with the majority of the republicans
and tlien support them.
1 am a Roosevelt-Taft republican and believe
in a square deal to everyone.
I am in favor of amending our present rev*
eiiuo law, so that a man’s indebted ness will be
deducted from his assess!ble* property, as tile
present law, of taxing both property and mort
gage held against said property is double taxa
tion. pure ami simple. It works a hardship on
the very class of citizens that are the least able
to Stand it. I believe that all citizens, rich or
poor, should Is* equal before the law.
I am in favor .if amending our primary law,
mo as to permit the voters to elect the precinct
committee man also county chairman.
1 am lit favor of amending our present road
taw and would suggest that at farmers’ insti
lutes held hi various places this matter should
tie taken up and committees appointed to form
ulate plans to Is* presented to the next legisla
ture, so as to assist them in passing some sen*
•Ible and economical road law.
I am in favor of county option ami lielieve
that every one, whether they are opposed to or
in favor of the open saloon, should favor this
measure, as it would tend largely to put an end
to the continual strife and turmoil that exists
in almost eve.rv town in the state. Again the
liquor question affects every taxpayer in the
county, then wh\ should they not have the
right to say whether they should have the open
saloon or not/
Now, my republican friends, 1 leave my can
didacy in your hands and await your verdict.
I am, very respectfully yours,
S. H. Holkiack.

loving friends.’’ Just listen to
In a Chicago sueech W. .J.
Bryan appealed for twenty-five
cent contributions to be spent
in his interest. Comment seems
In the thirty days speaking
tour arranged for Mr. Bryan a
few dates are given to the state
of Georgia, many are given to
Kentucky and Maryland. Does
it not look as though somebody
is getting a little “panicky”
about the solid south?
Primary election day occurs
next Tuesday, Seytember 1st.
Primary election day is the day
of the people. The choice of
tne different candidates for the
Varn us county and state offices
must be made on that day. Let
every voter get out then and
help nominate good men.
The man who attempts to ar
ray one class against another is
an enemy to his country. The
rights of every class of people
should be respected and any far
seeing man who has the best
interest ot bis country and of
his people at heart, will not be
guilty of stirring up class hat

writer last week, of four of hisi
near neighbors, all formerly I

county as the votes are cast and
Since it lias turned out to be a
fact that the amount of state
taxes which will be paid by this
county for 1908 will be less than
in 1907, and that the amount i f
county taxes levied by the dem
ocratic county board is higher
than for last year, we have a
right to ask for an explanation
from our democratic friends.
Will we get it?
Tlie republican national com
mittee is having hundreds of
phonographic records made of
Bryan’s speeches in 1H9G and
1900. If you remember some of
the predictions he made you will
readily see how ludicrous these
speeches will sound. As Bixby
•‘This is the democratic way,
1 speak the words in sorrow
An issue paramount today
Aint worthadain tomorrow.”
The democratic silence re
garding our state taxes is about
the most eloquent silence imag
inable. The charge made that
Ivichanlson county state taxes
had been increased under Gov
ernor Sheldon, when in truth
they are less than before, leads
one to accept the statement of a
local business man last week,
when he said, ‘"When you see it
in the local democratic organ,
it didn’t happen. ’’
Some man who is interested
in the chances of the different
candidates lor election as presi
dent in November, has discover
ed that Mr. William .1. Bryan
was nominated on Friday; that
there are thirteen letters in Ins
name and that John Wertli Kern
is also unfortunate in having
thirteen letters in his name.

occurring twice in connection
with these names were too much
The Tribune would like to see
every candidate for the legisla

Bolejack. This applies alike to
democrats and republicans. The

Bolejack courageously and

At the close of the last demo
cratic admistration, under a
democratic tariff, wheat sold for
4H cents. Today it will sell for
80 cents. Corn sold for 16 cents,
today it sells for 70 cents; fat
cattle sold for $3.80, today they
sell lor $7.20; hogs sold for $3,
today they sell for $6.25. Bry
an’s platform demands material
reductions of the tariff on neces
saries. If you want to know
what that means to you, read
the above prices and learn the
effect of such a tariff on the
“Shall the people rule?'’ is
the question upon which Mr.
Bryan bases his hopes for elec
tion, In all the history of this
country there is no period in
which the rule of the people has
been so supreme as during the
Roosevelt administration. The
President has made his own pre
cedents from the settlement of
the coal strike to the Standard
oil prosecutions, and his efforts
have always been directed in the
interest of the rule of the peo
ple. In many of the things ac
complished Judge Taft has been
an important factor. To the
policies of President Roosevelt
he stands unequivocally commit
ted. The indorsement of the
labors of Theodore Roosevelt is
the absorbing issue of the cam
paign and in their endorsement
the American people will return
an affirmative answer to the
question propounded by Mr.
It you dig into a democratic
cemetery, you would find it
tilled with dead democratic
‘paramount issues.’ You would
find the dead issues favoring
human slavery buried there.
Not but a little beyond that
grave you would tind the re
mains of free trade doctrine
which is now abandoned for
tariff for revenue only. Then
free silver with its kindred sis
ter of repudiation, the talk of
imperialism, government own
ership of railroads, the offspring
of Mr. Bryan's fertile mind,
would be found in graves that
are yet fresh. T3ryan now tells
us that the great question is,
“shall the people rule.” Has
he forgotten the ruling of the
people in 1900 when they snowed
him under with his paramount
issues, with a plurality against
him of 800,000 votes? Certainly
the people shall rule and on

The chill of last Sunday was
a reminder that the summer is
dying. There will be more
warm weather, ol course, but in
a few weeks the morning will
show the hillsides glistening
with frost, the apples will be
red in the orchard, the dry corn
stalks will creak and rattle in
the early breeze, the maples
will put on their glorious gowns
of yellow’ and the quiet days ol
early autumn will wrap their
hazy robes about all nature in
preparation for the winter's rest.

to be, the Lord make us truly
A SAVING OF $6,000,000 TO
As many of the democratic
papers and spell binders are
lambasting the republican state
executives it will be in order to
call the attention of the public
to a few interesting figures.
Through republican legisla
tion there lias been saved to the
people of Nebraska the sum of
$6,006,405.38, as follows:
Two cent passenger law.. .$3,168,104.60
Law reducing the freight
On grain, live stock and
lumber, Sibley law, state
Law reducing coal rates... 100,000.00
Total saved the people... .$6,006,405.38
These figures are not mere
guesses. They are r statement
of positive facts, taken from fig
ures furnished the railroad com
missioners at Lincoln by the
various railroads of the state.
They are open to inspection to
all. These figures were not fur
nished by friends of the republi
can party, but were furnished by
railroad officials in compliance
with laws passed by a republi
can legislature. Every reduc
tion in freight rates on corn,
wheat, oats, or live stock means
an advance in the prices paid
the farmer for his farm products.
If the freight rate on corn is re
duced two cents per bushel, the
grain buyer can pay the farmer
two cents more per bushel for
Lis corn. The same rule holds
good on all other products. No
further comment is needed on
these figures as any man can un
derstand them for himself.
