Mr Heavis? Ho certainly must feel
that the mighty have fallen when
such judgment is passed upon him
by Ills famed critic. We consider
Mr. Heavis among the best writers
in tlie state and we are always glad
to give him space, but will say for
the benefit of this lost soul, to
whom a true and just statement of

We hope this explanation will
appease the wrath of liis highness,

A PLAIN BUNCO CAME.
The reading public is already fa
miliar with the “noli-partisan” bun
co game of the democratic plat
form of 1909, formulated for the
express purpose of deceiving Nebras
ka republic ans into voting for the dem
cratic candidates for the supreme
court and regents of the university,
under the thin disguise that the dem
ocratic candidates are the best men
“because they are democrats.” The
democratic platform deceitfully words
the non-partisan game in this wise:
“We urge all Nebraskans in voting
for supreme judges and for regents
to lay aside party prejudice and ties.
We hope no democrat will vote for
a candidate for either of these offices
merely because the candidate is a
democrat, and that no republican will
vote for such a candidate because he
is a republican. We urge each and
every voter of all parties to vote for
the man when he goes to the box
this fall and not for the party label.”
This pronouncement “listens well"
" g._ "
ami if it Weic not for the ov> rv< h. lur
lug mass of evidence ready at hand;
to prove the hide-bound partisan char
acter of the riempcratie party of Ne
braska at all times, these “fair words
of promise" might deceive the citi
zen who does not go beneath the
surface for the real facts. But
the proof is ample and lias been
piled up by the democratic politicians
themselves in mass that can not be
overlooked except by him who will
The last session of the Nebraska
legislature, of unfavorable memory,
was directed by an overwhelming ma
jority in both houses and ruled over
by a democratic governor. l)emo
cratlc partisans were in complete con
trol and worked their sweet will
without let or hindrance. Was there
a “halo of non-partisanship” resting
above the democratic legislature and
the democratic governor? Was there
a rainbow of non-partisan promise
displayed In the political sky to as
sure republican officials and em
ployes of the state that the demo
cratic party stood "for the man and
not the party label?” Not that any
body could detect with the linked
eye. Instead of a show of non-part
isanship the democratic party
through its authorized and accredit
ed agents, the legislature and gover
nor, Indulged In a saturnalia of par
tisan legislation the parallel of which
has not been offered in any other
state in the union. Kvery state of
ficial, amploye, board, commission and
operative who could be reached by
statutary enactment was "Mwllen
Ized" Into a partisan democrat as
rapidly as the legislative wheels
could grind out the necessary room
at the democratic pie counter. No
less than twelve separate laws were
passed to give the democratic gov
ernor power to remove republicans
from the service of the state and put
democratie partisans in their places
and those twelve enactments covered
every possible state employment that
could be reached by legislative effort.
This is a grand showing of which
democrats maj found the claim of
sincerity (?) in their ‘•non-partisan"
pretentions this year and ought to

want "the man" aud not "the party
Further and incontrovertible evi
dence of the deceit in the democratic
"non-partisan" campaign this year is
(he fact that the democratic politi
cians of the state, the "line-workers"
and manipulators of the party, and
i lie avowed democratic press of the
state, have all lined up solidly behind
the democratic candidates ami arc
fighting for their election tooth and
nail In the same old desperate par
tisan way. Democratic politicians arc
"non-partisan" this year when they
see no hope of winning in any other
way. No republican voter should per
mit himself to be deceived by the
shallow aud ridiculous pretention.

THE WOLF COMING.
One of The Shubert Successes Is
Next Wednesday evening, Septem
ber 15, at the Gehling Theatre will
be a gala event among amusement
seekers, the occasion being the first
posetitatlon in this city of "The
Wolf,” the latest play of Eugene Wai
ter, as produced by the Messrs, Sam
S. and Lee Shubert and the one that
created such n furore in New York
and Chicago where it enjoyed long
runs, to audiences that tested the
capacity of the theatres.
"The Wolf” is said to lie strong
.in conception, dramatic in execution
and vitally Interesting throughout. It
tells a story of that wonderful Hud
son Uay country and of tin1 primal,
eternal struggle- between man for the]
possession of a woman. Dark pas
sion and pure; sentiment arc- set in
opposition, but there is nothing hack-1
neyed. The men are not of the famll-j
inr state typo, nor arc; tin- scenes of
a mechanical order.
The father of Hilda MeTavish is a
Scotchman whose narrowness of mind
drives his wife into the world. The
child, Hilda, is left behind. When
McDonald,a handsome American engi
neer, appears, lie covets the simple
girl and engages old MeTavish in a
plot to lure Hilda tin1 way her mother
Intel gone. McDonald is not a vIlian
for tlic- "gods,” however, and deeds
of violence he leaves to the hero,
whielt certainly seems to be contrary
to all the old traditions. It is here |
that the critics claim the art of the
playwright is seen at its best.
There crops .lules Beaubien, a
French Canadian, with a streak of
Ojlbway from ids mother. McDonald

has left Jule’s sister to die with her
unborn babe. Jules recognizes him
and bides his time. Baptisto. his
loyal retainer, crosses himself gently
as he swears that unless Jules kills
McDonald, he will.
Jules overhears the plotting of
McDonald and McTarvish in refer
ence to the iimo nt Hilda. McDon
ald lias been married and was a gay
blade on the White Way. Jules, of
course, loves Hilda. The man en
raged, declares he will crush her
life out with his bare hands. The
French Canadian intervenes, striking
McDonald with his fist. The engi
neer attempts to draw his revolvi r,
hut Baptiste has linn covered with a
shotgun, in the cabin window. At
this point the scene closes, and one
may imagine easily that tlie Interest
Immoral as he is, McDonald is
fearless and persistent. He takes
to tlie path and comes upon Jules.
He fires at him, but his shot does
not go home. Then the two engage
in the most realistic and fiercest
linnd-to-hand duel ever seen on the
stage. Now up and down, rolling
over and over in the dim light for
fully a minute, the fighters struggle.
Finally one is seen to droy lifeless
from a stab wound. The victor
lights a match and the glowing face
of Jules is seen by the audience.

Memorial to Mary Anning.
Lyme Regi' church, which, like
many another building in that quaint
old Dorset seaport, is in danger of
slipping into the waves, has compara
tively little of interest for tourist or
townsman to loiter over. Its most re
markable memorial is the stained
glass window to Mary Anning. This
was the schoolgirl who, in 1811, dis
turbed the lost rest of the saurian
monster — Icthyosaurus Platydon—
whose remains now lie in the Natural
History museum at South Kensington,
i As curious a iind as any that ever
: came to the net of a child on the
beach, liut Mary Anning possibly

| for her father was the proprietor of
a curiosity shop.—London Chronicle.

The management of the asso

announcing that their efforts to
have a meeting of the association
have met with unanmious favor,
among the people of Falls City,
as to warrant the assertion that
this year’s show will eclipse any
former effort. About $200 has
been secured and more is promis
ed. Now it only remains for the
farmers to do their part, as they
have done before, and we will
have a show that the “banner”

good reason to be proud of. Plan
to attend and bring something to
