1 wish *o announce my candidacy
for the legislature subject to the re
publican primary. DON GR1DLEY.
There is wrapped up in our young
people all the possibilities of the fu
ture. The achievements of the next
generation lie latent within them. It
is our privilege to make them what
they will be, and in so doing to de
termine the course of history far
beyond our own time.
The county option democrats of
Richardson county arc objecting very
strenuously to the candidacy of John
H. Morehead for tho state senate.
One voter writes from Kalis City:
“The county option folks don't want
Morehead. He Is objectionable on
other matters besides county option.
1 hope Hall of Pawnee, tho other dem
ocratic candidate, is all right or at
least, better. Dr. Johnson, republican
of Pawnee, is all right of course, and
will be nominated, as he has no oppo
sition. But tho Pawnee temperance
men ought to help us beat Morehead."
All of which is referred to the good
temperance people of Pawnee, where
the democrats are just as dry as the

"Kor the further regulation of the
liquor traffic in Nebraska, we are
in favor of the passage of a county
option law by tho next legislature,
ami pledge our candidates for gover
nor, If elected, to approve such a law
on that subject as ihe legislature
may enact."
“We recognnize the existence of
a sufficient demand for direct legis
lation in this slate to warrant sub
mitting the question to the vote of
the people. We therefore favor the
submission of a direct legislation
amendment to our constitution by the
next legislature.”
“We favor the creation of a non
partisan board of control for the
penal, reformatory aand charitable in
stitutions of the state.”
"We favor the passage of a new
apportionment law, at the next ses
sion of the legislature, redistricting
the state into senatorial and repre
sentatives districts, giving to each
fair and equal representation, based
on the population, as shown by the
census of 1910 ,aud if the legisla
ture. which is elected this fall, fails
to preform this constitutional duty,
while in regular session, we pledge
the people of this state that the re
publican candidate for governor, if
elected, will convene the legislature
in special session until this con
stitutional duty has been performed.”
“Every protest against the wrong is
insurging for the right. We are un
alterably opposed to the system
known as ‘Caunonism’ and are in
hearty sympathy with the insurgent
movement in and out of congress.
We herewith urge our senators and
I representatives to continue to use
their votes and influence along pro
gressive lines in the future.”
In answer to many inquiries, it Is
well to observe again that the prin
ciple of county option, as tried out
in many states, is that when a
< ounty votes dry, it Is all dry.
When a county votes against the
"dry” proposition it remains just as^
It was before, leaving the municipal
ities to have saloons or not have,
them, as they may decide In then
local elections.
In Nebraska, to fail to dry up a
county would mean to leave the Slo
cum law in effect just as It is now.
County option is not a proposition
to vote saloons into a county. It is
to vote them out of a county. Saloons
are already outlaws under the law,
permitted only under certain condi
tions, and restrained by bonds and
locul police regulations.
County Option would mean a
chance of the people of the whole
county to absolutely prohibit the lic
ensing of outlawry within the county.
Brewery papers call this a jug-hand
led arrangement. So is the licen
sing of outlaw institutions jug-hand
led. So is tlie ruining of the lives
of men and hoys Jug-handled.

Temperance voters in either the
populist, republican or prohibition
parties can all .this time vote for
T. M. C. Birmingham for U. S. Sen
ator. He is the only one of the four
candidates for this office on the
People's party ticket that stands un
reserved for temperance and meets
the requirements of their Grand Is
land platform.
Senator Aldrich of David City is
making rapid strides in his gover
norship contest. It now appears that
Ex-Governor Sheldon is not to be a
candidate, and Aldrich naturally falls
heir to these forces. This is for
fortunate, for it presents progressive
republicanism in a united force.
There has not in years been a candi
date for governor who has done so
much for the people as Senator Al
drich of David City. Every time you
buy a railroad ticket for one hund
red miles remember it only costs you
two dollars. The dollar saved and in
your pocket is there because Senator
Aldrich "made a winning fight for the
two-cent fare. He is the author of
the freight rate law that bears his
name, and since its operation the ship
pers of this state have saved more
than seven million five hundred dol
lars. Then why should not the peo
ple unite and make their best friend
governor of this state?—Valparaiso
visitor. -
The atmosphere has cleared some
what. Governor Sheldon has decided]
not. to be a candidate for the republi-i
can nomination for governor. This!
leaves Senator Aldrich as practically]
the only progressive republican in I
the field. Now let every progress
ive republican in the state line up
for Aldrich at tile prinuiriesand give
him the nomination over the react
ionaries by a big vote.

From State Capital.
The political sensation of I lie week
is furnished by the withdrawal of W.
It. Patrick from I lie democratic guber
natorial race. Mr. Patrick entered
the race as a strong county optionist.
Ills idea was to force Shallenberger
to come out Into the open on the ques
tion. This he succeeded indoing.
There is no question that Shallen
berger was scared when Paterick
announced his candidacy. It either
meant that he would lose votes
enough to defeat him, or he would
have to stop his “pussy-foot” cam
paign. The second rude shock was
at Grand Island, when the populists
made a strong declaration for county
option, and pledged their voters to
stand by the man who was out. in the
open. Within an hour Shallenberger
had a declaration ready. He said
he would sign a county option bill, if
It came up to him “in a constitu
tional manner.”
This dodge of Shallenberger's may
have fooled the pops a little, but it
does not seem to have fooled Pat
rick a great deal, if one read closely
Ills statement, which is as follows:
"South Omaha, Neb., Aug. 2.— I
have withdrawn from the guberna
torial race because 1 can aid the
cause of county option more out of
the race than I could by remaining
in It was impossible in the time
available before primary day to
awaken the voters to a realization of
Df the fact that the railroad-brewery
combine is again behind tile candi
dacy of Shellenberger, and 1 would
prefer to devote my efforts to more
"ffective work, for 1 feel a deeper
anxiety for the cause than 1 have for
any office.
“My filing had the effect of smoking
Shallenberger into a promise to sign
a county option bill should one be
passed by the legislature. This prom
ise may amount to no more than did
his promise to the brewers two years
ago to oppose any amendment to the
Slocum law, but 1 had the supreme
satisfaction of forcing him to make
!t In the presence of a greater num
ber of witnesses.
1 cannot escape the conviction that
by its cowardly attitude towards
county option as expressed in the
Grand Island platform the democratie
party prepared for a splendid and
certain defeat in the coining contest,
because I believe that county option
sentiment is stronger than party ties
in Nebraska today, and. in my humble
judgment., the candidate who stands
squarely upon a county option plat
form will defeat any cowardly strad
dler by at least twenty thousand ma
In reading over the interview with
Colorado legislators, it is plainly
seen that the good old “fence” has
not lost its popularity as a strad
dling seat for statesmen. Many of
the eminent senators and representa
tives have “nothing to say at this
time,” and “must refuse to discuss
issues until they are presented.” One
can imagine the Jovian fowns that
darken their august brows, and al
most visualize the chill rebuke their
attitude administer to the reporter so
impertinent as to intrude upon their
All of which was very well a de
cade ago, when the people considered
public business a part from private
business, and simply elected repre
sentatives with reference to sonorous
tones and Hyperion curls.
The people are now giving public
business the same careful scrutiny
that private business has always re
ceived, and instead of windbags and
corporation tools they are demand
ing honest, plain speaking men who
will stand for them in the legisla
lure as trusted agents represent them
in personal affairs. Can anyone irn
agio? a merchant dispatching an
agent to carry out specific direction
and then when the agent fails him,’
resting satisfied with the answer, “I
am not ready to discuss the matter
at tjiis time?”
There is no excuse for any Colo
rado legislator not knowing where
he stands. The people have given
their orders, every issue has been
discussed and refusal to take a
position springs from idiocy or crook
edness. This cheap pretence of
statesmanlike deliberation is nothing
more than a cloak for fool or rescal.
In every district where the repre
sentative has refused to express him
self, the people should instantly call
meetings, and put the grave and
reverend seignor on the carpet. He
should be made to declare himself'
either one way or the other, and not
permitted to wobble around until he
can decide which way his political in
terests lie. The present demand is
for men who do know where they
stand, not fellows who seek to fool
the people by owlish gravity and
much pretense of thought.
Every representative with his
"ear to the ground" is in a position
that invites nothing so much as a
swift kick. And lie should get it.
It is much easier to have respect for
a man who comes out. flat against
his party's pledges and the people’s
interest, than a hypocrite full of
mealy-mouthed evasions and stales
manlike silence.—Denver post.

The peerless leader has fallen from

party of the brewers. William .).
Bryan was sat. down on nt the
Grand Island convention for his tem
erity in proposition to favor a tem
perance measure. County option was
turned down along with Mr. Bryan
of course, but that famous states
man is probably stronger with the
rank and file in his losing fight than
if he had failed to make it. The old
adage is again illustrated that a silk
purse cannot be made from a sow’s
ear- meaning that Mr. Bryan set him
self loo large a task to convert dem
ocracy to a temperance platform. His
influence will have much to do with
the state campaign, and since the re
publican party, by a vote of more
than two to one has championed the
temperance issue, it will not be sur
prising if Mr. Bryan’s influence would
lie in the direction of republican suc
cess. At any rate, the situation is
clarifying, in the state as well as
the nation, and the republican pros
pect ih roseate in comparison with
what appeared to be some months
ago.—fuering Courier.

"We have a letter from A. J.

business trip to Seattle, in which he
renews for the leader, and takes oc
casion to comment on the political sit

“ * • * * Some time ago I noticed
in your paper favorable mention of
the candidacy of Hon. William Hay
ward for congress. I fully approve of
your position, as I regard Mr. Hay
ward as a young man of exceptional
character and ability and the most
available candidate in the First dis
trict. He represents a sane yet pro
gressive position and sentiment on
public questions and will be a credit
to the state at Washington. His ser5
vice to the republican party in sev
eral campaigns as state chairman, and
as secretary of the national commit
tee during the last presidential cam
paign entitle him to the greatest con
sideration at. the hands of republicans
at the primaries, and his ability, char- v
acter and progressive, yet souniT posi
tion on public policies, entitle him to
cordial support at the November elec
tion. Nebraska wants big. strong,
brainy and honest men of high ideals
in the national legislature. Hayward
is such a man.’ ”

The wise old Dunbar Review is cor
rect in its surmise that Mr. Hayward
will carry every county in the district
at the coming primaries on August
16th, and in the meantime let's all ot
us boost for Bill with all our might
and main. The attempt is a worthy
one for any good citizen to make; Will
Hayward is a part of our life down
here in Otoe; he has shown that he is
capable of doing big things, he Is
brainy, progressive and alert to the
wishes of the people. He has never
been 'stuck up,' is straightforward in
action and candid and honest in his
opinions and will undoubtedly make
the bast congressman the First dis
trict has had for many years.

boosting. It Bhould be remarked that
Mr. Hayward, himself. Is boosting hi*
candidacy for all he Is worth, calling
on the voters in all parts of the dis
trict and getting close to the ground,
a position which all progressive po
litical candidates are assuming these
days of turbulence and independence
in thought and action. The time has
passed when any political candidate
can get through with flying colors by
making tinsel promises, talking of the
‘grand old flag' and appealing to the
sensational. It requires stamina and
grit to meet the issues face to face—
and we claim Will Hayward is doing
