Are the Omaha and Kansas

vote? _
Do you want the days of 15c

get such a result by voting for
Mr. Uryan or by staying at
home and not voting.

iii 'Axn Nebraska legislature and
no man can successfully attack
the record he made. He served
that term while nothing more
than a boy. He is more mature

stantly expect him to be one of
Mte real )eaders in the senate
next winter.
There is but one way to give
Richardson County to Judge
Taft and that is for every voter
to go to the polls on election
day. It is an easy matter for
the city man to vote, it is not so
easy for the farmer to cast his
ballot. The past eight years of
prosperity ought to create a
personal interest on the part of
every business man to do his
part to insure a continuance of
ibe present condition.
In an interview with the edi
tor of the Lincoln News, which
appeared in that paper Monday
last. Secretary James Wilson,
head of the national department
of agriculture, gave Congress
man Ernest M. Pollard some
high words ot commendation.
This interview is as follows:
“Secretary Wilson spoke in the
highest terms of Mr. Pollard and
I)is work in Washington and as
serted that the people of the
First district were to be con
gratulated upon having in con
gress an educated man such as
at present represents them; one
who understands their interests
and has a practical knowledge
of the industry in which they are
most largely interested. As a
member of the committee on
agriculture, the secretary knew
Mr. Pollard as an indespensiblc
public official for the people of
this district. Secretary Wilson
stated that the work of the
agricultural department is in
creasing annually and is becom
ing daily more valuable to the
people ol the county. It is
bringing its benefits right home
to the farmer and husbandman
by sending out experts who are
able by practical demonstration
to show those interested just
how they may increase the pro
ductiveness of their lands and
the quality of their products.
The department must to a great
extent, depend upon congress
and the members of the commit
tee on agriculture and no more
valuable assistance lias come
from any sourse than from
the member from the First Ne
braska district, wlu> has devot
ed the greater portion of his
time and energy to this subject.
Secretary Wilson thinks that it
would be a distinct loss to this
district, if Mr. Pollard should
not be returned.
John Wiltse is a young man
who accepts life as a responsi
bility. Ever since he opened
his law office in Palls City he
has given his profession and the
interests of his clients his un
divided attention. If he is elect,
ed county attorney the citizens
of the county may rest assured
that the county’s legal business
will never be neglected,and that
the criminal affairs of the office
will be prosecuted wjjh absolute
fairne-s and unquestioned cour
age. _______
We cannot remember of the
time when the party has nomi
nated a stronger legislative
ticket than the one placed be
fore the people this fall. Zook,
Bolejack and Ward are all busi
ness men of acknowledgedcapa
city. Each man’s word is as
good as his bond, and, unlike
their opponents, they have
taken the voters into their full
confidence and told just what
they will do if elected.
It is your duty as a citizen to
vote. It is your privilege to
cast a vote for Judge Taft whose
unselfish labors in the interest
of our common country have
made him one of the greatest
tnen of his time. It is to your
personal profit to vote for a
continuation of those govern
mental policies which have
given us such unbounded pros
perity. Go the polls and count
one in the nations counsels.
When it was made public that
the slump in the democratic vote
at the recent primaries in Cincin
nati was fully 25 per cent, it was
another clinching evidence that
Mr. Bryan would carry Ohio—nit.

Tbe attention of our readers
is called to the two constitution
al amendments which will ap
pear upon the ollicial ballot on
election day. One of these
amendments will permit the in
vestment of our permanent
school fund in Nebraska School
precinct and municipal bonds
and thus avoid the necessity ot
sending the money out of the
state for investment as we have
been compelled to do in the
past. The other will bring
about a long needed reorganize
tion of our Supreme Court by
substituting four additional
judges for the six commission
ers now constituting a part of
that court. 'Hie commissioner
system i> wrong in principle
and very unsatistactory to all
parties, including the commis
sioners themselves. The sys
tem is a makeshift, but it will
haye to be continued until the
court is enlarged, as it is utter
ly impossible for three judges
to do the work. Recog^
the necessity for these two
changes in our constitution all
of tlie political parties gave
both amendments their unquali
fied endorsement at the primar
ies. In order, however, to in
sure their adoption at the com
ing election every voter should
be careful to vote for both
amendments. Don't forget.
In the meantime have you
heard anything from the demo
cratic legislative ticket on coun
ty option? A candidate who
fears to take the voters into his
contidence before election is
sure not to do it after election.

the meeting of the State Federa

was sung by Miss McCormick in
a most charming manner. A
sketch of Henry Van Dyke by
Mrs. John Crook was pleasingly
presented. A note of personal
interest was given by the reading
of a letter to Mrs. Crook from
Hamilton Wright Mabic, Van
Dyke’s intimate friend- Mrs.

the formal meeting, many of the
guests spent some time in con

C. F. Reavis Will Address the
Voters Tuesday Evening
Owing to the heavy rains on
Monday evening, C. F. Reavis
was unable to address the people
of Preston on that date, but he
has kindly consented to arrange
his business so he can be able to
be with them on Tuesday even
ing, October 27, when he will
talk to them on the public issues
of the day. Mr. Reavis is well
versed on all the vital questions
and is amply able to present them
in a most convincing manner to
his hearers. No doubt a large
crowd will greet Mr. Reavis in
Preston next Tuesday evening.
A False Alarm
The ringing of the tire bell
called the boys out Friday
afternoon, and after a long run
to the M. P. depot, found their
services were not needed. Some
hay near the cold storage build
ing caught tire but was easily
extinguished by parties nearby.
The wind was blowing a perfect
gale at the time and great loss
would have been sustained had
the blaze gained any headway.
The Constructive Genius of Our
Oriental Trade-Empire.
Carried the Torch of Civilization to
Antipodes—Made Secure Our
Tar Eastern Commercial
Supremacy. i
During the past ten years, under a'
constructive Republican policy, the
United States has assumed a position
in the Pacific Ocean which is destined
to give her the bulk of the vast com
merce of the countries situated on the
greatest body of water on ihe globe.
Some of the things accomplished by
the party of enlightened freedom and
patriotism have been: The securing
of the open door In China; the preser
vation of the Integrity of the Chinese
Empire; the acquisition of the Philip
pines; the establishment of coaling sta
tions across the Pacific and finally the
transfer of the American fleet of bat
tleships from the Atlantic to the Paci
fic to modestly remind the Oriental na
tions that, having assumed the posi
tion of a world i>ower In the Pacific,
we are prepared to maintain it against
all comers.
America mid Japan til I'acltto.
Two wars have caused the whole
world to realize that the Pacific Ocean
Is to be the scene of the greatest hu
man activities In the future. The war
of the United States with Spain gave
us possessions which bring us within
speaking distance of Asia, and the
Russo-Japanese war revealed Japan to
the world as a powerful and progres
sive nation, whose future sphere o»’ ac
tion would of necessity he within the
boundaries of the ocean separating
America from the Orient.
Tati n Const rued vc Slntcsmnn.
The Honorable William II. Taft has
been one of tbe chief udvlscrs and
strongest advocates of tbe Republican
administration policy during this for
mative and historic period. He has
been a pioneer, not only along tbe lines
cf statecraft, which have had for their
object the development of our western
states, but he has given particular at
tention to the situation In the Orient
with reference to the future commerce
between those far away countries and
tho Pacific coast of America.
In bis own Inimitable way and unit
ing a unique personality with the high
est authority as a diplomat, he poured
oil on the troubled waters In Japan
and changed the political storm there
raging, Into a placid sunshine of peace.
In Chinn he created such enthusiasm
as the Orientals have never shown to
any other visitor and left that empire
with the belief on their part that the
United States is not only ready to en
ter into commercial reciprocity, hut to
still stand ns China's friend and lend
Its influence to see that Bhe gets jus
tice from those who would violate her
territorial integrity.
Taft and Oriental Trade.
In his Shanghai speech, addressing
a body of Influential merchants, diplo
mats and Chinese government officials,
Mr. Taft spoke in part as follows:
“We do not complain of loss of trade
that results from the employment of
great enterprise, Ingenuity or attention
to the demands of the Chinese market,
or the greater business ucuinen shown
by our competitors. We would have
the right to protest at being secluded
from the trade of China by reason of
our Insistence of the policy of the
Open Door. The acquiescence In this
policy of all the nations Interested has
been so unhesitating and emphatic
that It Is hardly worth while to specu
late upon the probable action of the
United States lu case the Interests of
American merchants are placed In Jeop
ardy, and how far the United States
would go lu the protection of Its Chi
nese trade, I cannot aay. It Is clear,
however, that our merchants are being
roused to the importance of the Chi
neea trade and they would view with
deep concern any and all political ob
stacles which menace that expansion.
“This feeling la likely to find expres
sloa In the action of the American gov
ernment. The United States and the
other powers favor the open door, and
If they are wlae they will encourage
the Empire to take long steps In ad
ministrative and governmental reform,
the development of the resources of
China, and the Improvement of the wel
fare the people. To do this would
add to China's strength and position
■a g self-respecting government and aid
her in preparing to resist possible for
eign aggression in the seeking of undue
and exclusive proprietary privileges.
Thus no foreign aid will be required
to enforce the open door and the policy
of equal opportunity for all."
History Halting Happenings.
During recent Republican administra
tion* we have built up an export trade
with the Far East of something like
$1BO,000,000 per year. We have landed
an army on Chlnesa territory, and have
been drawn willy-nilly Into the vortex
of the Far Eastern question. During
the period policies have been formulated
which hare compelled us to take a hand
In momeatous negotiations. We hare
definitely enrolled the Far East among
the objects of our commercial and diplo
matic solicitude. Things have changed
, much during this ten years of Republi
cs "
The United States ii. s come into pos
session of the Philippines nnd all the
political and strategical responsibilities
entailed by tills movement. The,partici
pation In, and suppression of. the Boxer
rebellion, the expanding recognition of
the supreme importance to the future
of American trade, of (lie open door, the
realization that, with the ex. ptiou of
Japan, no country is so well situated
as the United States, industrially ami
geographically, to make the most and
the best of the development of China.
These and other events have trans
formed American indifference to the
fortunes of the Far East into a real,
live, tingling nnd vigilant concern.
I.of;it'it 1 CoinitirrclQl Events.
It did not need the Chinese boycott
of American goods, or the outbreak of
the trouble with Japan over the Immi
gration qin ntloli, to convince an impar
tial onlooker that America’s relations
with the powers of the Far East woukl,
before long, be more immediate, of
greater moment and possibly of greater
hazard than our relations with the
powers of Europe. The American fleet
has foreshadowed the systematic asser
tion of American power in the Pacific.
American interests in that ocean, com
mercial. political and territorial, have
been neglected far too long.
Father of the Philippines.
Mr. Taft is in a sense the father of
the Philippines. It has been his kindly,
constructive statesman’s hand that
evolved order out of their original
chaos. In his report submitted to Con
gress. ns n result of his visit to the
Philippines to be present at the opening
of their first Assembly, he made four
recommendations. First—action by Con
gress admitting to the United States
Philippine products under such condl-.
tions that they would not interfere
with American tobacco and sugar in
dustries; second, the removal of re
strictions as to acquiring mining claims
and lands; third, further legislation
authorizing the government to carry
on an agricultural bank, which is now
authorized only as a private enterprise;
fourth, the repeal of the law applying
to the Islands the coastwise laws of
the United States.
Philosophy of Developoienl.
Our nation has grown by obeying the
Instinct of development. We are to-day
entitled to l>e called Greater America,
but that greatness will be lost if we
forget the political philosophy which
has made us great—expansion of Amer
ican thought, territory, mechanical skill,
civilization and philosophy. This is an
auspicious time for the creation and de
velopment of our export trade. The un
explored and undeveloped markets of
Asia furnish the opportunity. All other
fields have been occupied, and to at
tempt to wrest them from ether nations
would be of doubtful expediency. In
the Orient the commercial possibilities
exceed the dreams of the optimist.
Are the American people ready toj
abandon such a situation and leave it]
to the mercy of the Democratic party'
with its failure of fifty years looking
at us from the past?
In a business sense the young voters
who have come forward since 1904 have
more at stake than any other class in
rendering a right decision. Their ac
tive lives are ahead. They have more
years to live, and are now laying the
foundations of their business careers..
National policies and conditions are oC
the highest consequence to them. Per-*
haps they are farmers. If so, let them
ask the older generation how farmers
fared under the last Democratic admin
istration. Let them take the market
reports of to-day and compare them
with the prices that prevailed when Mr.
Bryan made his crusade for free silver
and hurled defiance at President Cleve
land because he stood by the gold
standard. At the same time Bryan de
nounced the Republican party for Its
protectionist as well as sound money
position. Perhaps the first voter Is to
engage In manufacturing or mining, -is
wage-earner or otherwise. Does he
want his American rate of wages aDd
the industry ho chooses reasonably pro
tected against foreign competition? If
he does Mr. Bryan's leadership will
take him In the opposite direction.—
St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
The Tide ol Prosperity.
The tide of prosperity may ebb and
flow, hut the great wares of Industrial
wealth will continue to grow In vol
ume with ever-increasing comfort and
happiness to our contented people, who
will soon number 100,000,000. And be
cause of our Intelligent and skillful
labor, made so because of good wages
and good living, we shall make better
fabrics and build stronger structures—
that In spite of their higher cost In tbe
beginning will be cheaper In tbe end
and will be wanted by tbe people In
every corner of tbe earth. So that we
shall capture tbe marketa of the world
In greater volume without ever sacri
ficing our home market, the foundation
of our national wealth and progress_
