DEMAND FOR PROOF.
In response to a demand for proof
of liis charge that G. M. I lltrhcock.
candidate for the I', tv sonatorship.
was connected with tin1 Hartley stale
treasury scandal of fifteen years ago,
Edgar Howard publishes in his paper,
the Columbus Telegram, a startling
facsimile letter written on World
Herald stationary and signed by G.
M. Hitchcock it is addressed to
"Hon. Joseph S. Hartley, state Irens
urer," not to ,1. K. Hartley, personally
It reads as follows:
"Personal Omaha, Nebraska, May!
30, 1895—Hon. Joseph S. Hartley,1
stall1 treasurer, Lincoln, Neb., Dear \
Sir Refering to (blank) eon versa-1
♦ ion with you I beg to say that 1
would like lo make out notes as
One due September 1, $200.
One due October 1. $100,
One due November I, $100.
One due December I. $100.
One due January I. 1890, $500.
The latter I might ask to have ex
tended in part. The others would
be paid at maturity with interest..
Will of course pay the interest, on
prresent note. Will this lie satisfac
tory? Yours truly,
G. M. HITCHCOCK,"
This is Hie most, extraordinary ex
posure made in connection with the
Hartley defalcation. Only once be
fore has anything like it appeared in
print. Nine years almost to (lie day
the World Herald drove Regent
Goold frrom the republican stale
ticket because ids hank had borrowed
a thousand dollars of state money.
When the facts became known
through the blackest of World Herald
head lines, Mr. Gould tendered his
resignation to the Republican State
Mr. Howard has exceeded ail ex
pectations in the suddenness and
dumfounding nature of his evidence.
The slate will now await action by
Mr. Hitchcock with lively interest
The proper course for him lo take,
unless he is able to prove this loiter
to be fo rgery, was outlined by his
own paper in October, 1901. Ki^tor
ial from Lincoln Journal, Oetober 15.
If some one will tell me how far
It is from civic righteousness to total
depravity I will name the first sta
tion that Dahlman will land at in his
administration. It must he a shock
lug humiliation to decent respectable;
and law abiding people to be called
into court to tell the truth and noth
ing but the truth, then have a bunch
of debauched, depraved, degenerate,
drunken, dissipated sops get on the
same stand and say that the decent
people didn't tell the truth. Not
only that, but not one man on the
jury, nor the attorney himself would
take their word for twenty-five cents
on the street. More than that the
attorney with a flattering tongue
and quivering knees mounts those
archangels on the pedestals ot pur -
ity and crowns them with the mantle
of righteousness. This is only a
forerunner of what will happen when
Dahlman will have a saloon on every
corner of every block in every pre
cinct of every county of the state and
a red light between every saloon.
Then you can sit in the glimmering
red light of profligacy and inhale the
unwholesome breeze of prostitution.

During all the pleasures and vari
ous forms of amusement provided by
the cities to attract the people
within their domain during tile past
few weeks, the number of accidents'
and disastors. with their terrible re-1
suits has been appaling. Every pa
per contains accounts of terrible
wrecks ou railway or street car and
traction collisions. The falling of a
grand stand in Kansas City cast a
gloom over the festival week by the
number of lives lost. The street
car collision in Omaha had its dis
asterous effect. One goes on a
pleasure trip and their family be,
hold a corpse returned to them.
These things seem due in most cases
to companies over working an insuf
ficient supply of help. How often
when investigation is started it is
found a conductor, au engineer or
moterman has been worked beyond
all reasonable hours, and yet he is j
asked to guard hundreds of human |
lives. There is ample room for re- (
form along, this line and there should j
tie some way provided to force com-1
pnnies to provide more and capable j
help at such s* asons of the year.

Hy the death of Senator PollivfT of <
Iowa last Sunday, October Hi, the
publican party loses one of its strong
est and ablest representatives and a :
man whom it can ill afford to lose at
this time, lie was a lighter where he
believed he was morally right fTe
has been one of the strong arms of
tiie insurgents and particularly since
tile tariff revision of JWOil tots he been
one of the strongest factors of this
1 faction. He has been one of t)je fore
I most figures in Iowa polities for many
I years. His death was sudden, coming
| after a week of illness that w as not
| considered serious, and was due to
i heart dilation, caused by acute indi

It is init comparatively a few years
since the world looked with lie ubt up
on wireless telegraphy. Yet today it
is almost the marvel of the world, so
great a part ha- it played in the sav
ing of human life and the promoting
of justice. In the last year alone the
achievements by wireless are without
precedent. Yet wireless is only in
its infancy. And so, also, is tile air
ship. The wonders of the past year
will be as child’s play to what
many of the present g. iteration will
live to see. As the automobile is a
common means of travel today, so
will the airship be in a few years.

It might be well at this time to iin- ,
press upon the voter the importance J
of voting directly upon I'nited states
senator at the coming election. In
order to elect our republican U. S.
senator lie must receive a majority ,
of tlie popular vote on election day, .
and unless this is done a democrat i
will lie e ected. A majority of all j
legislative nominees have signed |
statement No. 1, agreeing to vote for j
the senator receiving the majority of
votes on election day. 'I’llis means
that if Mr. Burkett receives a major
ity of the votes at the November
election he will be elected IJ. S. sena
tor, even though the legislature has a
democratic majority, because these
nominee-, in signing statement No 1,
agree to elect a senator in accordance
with the will of the people. There
fore, let each voter understand the
importance of this matter and give
K. .1. Burkett a rousing majority.
About the weakest’argument that
cun be advanced against county op
tion is that there would be boot
legging and the county would have
to bear the expense of prosecuting
the hoot loggers. It is unlawful to
murder and steal horses so the coun
tj must bear the expense of prosecut
ing them. The law is to provide
against an evil and the courts for
the prosecution of offenders. Yet.
ninety per cent of the murders, bur
glaries, horse stealing and other
crimes are directly traeable to li
quor. There may be boot legging, the
next thing is to get officers with
lit)' courage and determination to
punish the offenders. That this
ount.v has been called upon to prose
cute the illegal selling of liquor and
that the cases are kept hanging in
the court makes two things evident.
That the whole county must stand
for the principal and that men must
lie chosen who will punish and punish
quickly, Hu' offender.
• * *
The advanced stand taken by the
mayor and city council iuregard to
the .leffries-Johnson show is to be
commended most emphatically. Let
all the citizens who appreciate the
action taken see to it that they show
their appreciation by openly commend
ing the city fathers for what they
did in tin' interests of decency and
morality. It will not hurt these
gentlemen if you take them by the
hand, slap them on the hack and
say (heartily!) 'Thank you." They
get little enough of appreciation and
quite too much of abuse.
We are also glad to note the abat
ing of the cigarette paper abuse refer
red to a few weeks ago. There ap-!
pears to be a very general misunder
standing concerning this affair. To1
set all parties right a complete state
incut is being prepaerd covering as
far as possible the entire ground.

Mrs. Charles Maddox, who has
been visiting her mother, Mrs. Mar
gery Grant, left last Saturday for
her home In Gordon Nebraska.
A party of about thirty-five ladies
and gentlemen enjoyed a picnic party
last Sunday on the J. W. Holt farm
north of town. It was an ideal pic
nic spot and an ideal day. There
was a bountiful picnic dinner served
and in the afternoon a good base ball
game furnished plenty of amusement.
Mrs. Watson came home Satur
day evening, so as to meet with her
Sunday School class and the Kn
deavor Society. She returned to
Hamlin Monday morning, to assist
Rev. Watson in his revival sendees
during the week.

f ¥ , __
A POINT TO BE CONSIDERED
Nebraska holds a proud p; rltion In
the sisterhood of states because of the
high lefol attained by her people in
material; fnoral and Intellectual pro
gress. At the base of this pr< gress
of whatever nature, lies (lie great fac
tor of material prosperity, for in all
history, where the chains of poverty
have hound a people to tlie daily strug
gle for existence, intellectual progres
has languished and the forward march
of civilization delayed.
This condition disappears like mist
before the sun when material prosperi
ty blesses a people with bountiful re
turns for the labor done in field, farm
and shop and thus, in the proud posi
tion of Nebraska in the galaxy of
states, Is reflect! d her material pros
perity. firmly rooted in the great en
terprise cf agriculture, which, with i'.
closely allied handmaidens, Block rais
ing, horticulture and dairying, is the
foundation of the spate's progress
along every avenue of advancement.
Nebraska is great in good citizen
ship, intelligence and In moral pro
gress, largely because of her solid
foundation of material prosperity
which is laid In the great agricultural
resources of the state.
These conclusions being evident R
would seem that the Highest individual
interest of all citizens of Nebraska
and the highest aspirations of her
statesmen would be at all times to
conserve, protect and advance the
agricultural interests of the state as
being the great source from which
flows material prosperity, b ;ng in
its train all other advantages which
come to bless a prosperous people.
In tlio3e days the business theor n
and practice of our government are so
closely woven with the prosperity ot
the people i s to lie inseparable, and
errors in judgment in the application
of economic theories by a poiihcal
party in power, of the selfish inter
ests of sections of our country in the
framing cf laws for the whole, is al
most instantly reflected In stagnant
business conditions, the first step in
which has always been reduced and
unprofitable prices for the products of
the Nebraska farm.
In the election of a national 1 lapise
of Representatives on the Sth of ‘No
vember next, each of two great po
litical parties is appealing to the elec
tors of the country for support in the
hope of securing the- election of a ma
jority of its members and thereby con
trolling national legislation. Where
so much of vital interest to every Ne
braskan is at stake it is well to con
sider what influence would be p- . i
mount with the congressmen e!e-‘ed
by Nebraska, what forces would tp
i■ \ i; ibly d< m nt te their gt
course, If Judged by the records < t ti e
political parties to which they are at
tached and of which they are a part.
Suppose for a moment tl.at tl
pie give to the democratic party the
control of the next congress. Wha:
elen i nts would control the d< mo
critlc party and shape national leg
islation? Would that eontr< 1 as we
have reason to foresee and prod- It
he of advantage to tne Nebraska farm
er, stock raiser and dairyman or would
it he the danger signal of storms t<
be faced by the agricultural in:
of the great central west? A!‘ o?t
to a historical certainty the ek<
of a democraMe congress would Id
the last named results end the fart :s
of Nebraska would pay, in depreciated
returns from farm ; redm-ts. an over
whelming share of the price of the
experiment In government.
That this conclusion is not a par
tisan prejudice let the facts he ex
amined in all enndor.
The vital force of democracy in n
nation wide sense lies inthe hands of
Tammany in the east, joined with th>
almost solid representation of the
southern states by democratic con
gressmen. In any democratic congress
the interests of tlie south will he
paramount as evidenced by the soke
tion of Crisp of Georgia to the speak
ership of the last democratic house.
It may not be said that control by
democratic congressmen representing
southern constituencies would he lack
ing in patriotism and good intention.,
but, from the vast differences in the
general and speckle interests of tbs
south as compared to the west, legis
lation would inevitably be offered and
pressed antagonistic and harmful to
the farmers of Nelir ska.

ocrats to congress to represent them
they may expect to find their repre

democratic purposes foreign to the
farmers’ interests, or at least helpless
Rgainst such purpose, while a republi

The Tribune Boosters
The Tribune is organiz
ing a system for more
effectively advertising our
home industries, products,
and scenery. We ask in
terested parties to meet us
half way in this work. We
are prepared to print post
cards of local views, when
proper cuts are furnished.
We desire to run a first
page local feature in The
Tribune each week. All
we ask is that parties wish
ing to have their views
printed furnish suitable
cuts. We are also contem
plating the publishing of
an illustrated manual of
Richardson county in the
near future. We are on
ly hindered from going
ahead more rapidly by the
initial cost of the work. If
each one will contribute his
mite it will be possible to
produce something that is
worth while, and that will
awaken a proper appre
ciation for the things at
home. Get a half tone cut
of your home or business
and join the line of boost
