Flooded With Literature.
Richardson County in the last few
weeks has been flooded with litera
ture intended to make votes for Dahl
man One thing is a surprise to us,
and that Is the brewers and distill
lug interests have singled out espec
ially tile German votes. Are the
German people so easily influenced
to cast their vote for a man like
Dahlmati, who Is a lawless mortal,
who boasts of his tin restrain ted law
lessness? The German has been
better thought of by his friends than
to be very largely stampeded to this
The above named powers in poli
tics. who have sworn vcngance to
| Governor Shallenbergor because he
| signed the Daylight law, are now up
I in arms and want to disgrace the
fair name of the state of Nebraska
Wo trust that our county will speak
, in no uncertain tone whether they be
I German or otherwise when the time
to vote comes.

What it Does Not Do.
County Option does not close n
i saloon; it gives the people a chance
to do so.
County option is not an arbitrary
measure; il presents to the people
two systems for controlling the liquor
traffic and lets them choose the one
• hey prefer.
County option is not prohibition. It
slnipty submits to the people of the
county the question of county prohib
ition. If a majority of the people in
the county are in favor of no saloons
they ought to have a chance to say
so. If a majority of the people
In the county are in favor of saloons
the same law will give them a ehanoe
to say so.
County option does not interfere
with personal liberty. On the other
hand the man who is against county
option is a foe to personal liberty
on the tax question. The people
of a county pay the tax that pays
the salary of the county officials,
whoso chi( f business is to look after
the mischief caused by saloons. The
man who is opposed to county op
tion Is opposed to letting the tax
payers have a voice on the one ques
tion that most concerns their taxes.—
W. J. BRYAN’S STAND.
Mr. Bryan's stand at the last dem
ocratic convention could not be other
than he did take in the matter of
county option. Mr. Bryan’s slogan
"lot (lie people rule,” (hat had been
Ills watchword through a number of
years would have been meaningless.
County option is nothing more or less
than this. Every farmer is to have
a vote whether a county shall have
saloons or no!. If the people are
for the wets, so will it be, but how
ever if the sentiment is for the dry,
so will it be. Let the people rule,
j especially the farmers. Certainly
l the farmers ought to be for it, as it
increases bis powers to have or not
| to have saloons. We think it is the
i most fair proposition that could lie
offered. It is indeed the much treas
ured principal of all true democracy
df the majority rule.

JOHNSON vs. MOREHEAD.
Kvery voter in Richardson county
owes it to Pawnee county to vote
for \V. T. Johnson, candidate for
suite senator from this district. This
is not so much a question of what
these men stand for as of courtesy
and fair-play. Richardson county can
not afford to lie little and njean in
this matter. It. is Pawnee county's
turn and we should be as fair with
them as they were two years ago
when it was our turn. \V. T. John
son is everything that any voter can
desire of a congressional candidate.
There is absolutely no call for a can
didate from Richardson county. Let
every fair-minded voter see to it
that we play fair with Pawnee in this
The candidacy of I'rof. J. \V. Crab
tree for the office of State Superin
tendent of Public Instructions is one
that commends itself In the highest
degree to the rank and file of both
school men and school patrons inter
ested in tile progress of the schools
of our state.
Among the teachers of the state
there is perhaps no other man so
During the seven year tiiat Mr.
Crabtree was Inspector of the schools
for the University of Nebraska, he
had the opportunity of coming into
the closest touch, not only with the
faculty of the state university and all
the many high schools in the state,
but also with tin* faculties of all the
other colleges and normal schools.
Tills splendid opportunity for discov
ering th' conditions and needs of all
the various public educational insti
tutions of the state, Mr. Crabtree
made wise use of, it seeming ever to
he his purpose not only to know per
sonally the men and women who wer
carrying on the work of the schools,
but to seek ways to help them to in
crease their efficiency and to make
their schools stronger. There are
many teachers and superintendents in
all parts of the state who feel that
much of their success lias been due
to Itis kindly interest and wise coun
sel at critical times in their careers.
Mr. Crabtree is a man of strong
personality, a personality that in -;
spires the best efforts of those who j
work tinder his direction. He has,
a broad way of looking at things, a
keen perception and sympathetic
understanding of the difficulties tin
th r which teachers and superintend
ents are working.
Mr. Crabtree is to a large extent
find in the very best sense of the
.void self-made,-his parents having!
been pioneer Cass county farmers,and
his common school education having ,
been obtained by alternately working ,
on his father’s farm and attending ,
country school until he entered the
state normal of which Institution he
is i graduate.
While carrying on his work at the
state normal, he spent some time ^
touching country schools to help puy ,
ihc expenses of his education. At
other times he chopped wood and did
chores for the professors, and during
summer worked as a farm hand. This
is the way of getting an education
that develops the best quality of man-!
hood, develops men, ready and cap
able for service to the world.
The excellence of Mr. Crabtree’s;
work as country teacher attracted
the attention of the school hoard of
Ashland, who offered him a position
in the Ashland high school. After,
one year in that position he was ad- j
vaneed to the superintendency where
his work was so successful that, that
period is looked back upon in Ash
land as an epoch In its school his
From Ashland he went to the state
university as instructor in matlie-1
mattes, then Into the principalship of
the Beatrice high school, from which
position, however, he was soon re
called by the university and made in
structor of the high schools. After!
an experience of seven years in that j
position he was elected to the presi-j
dency of the State Normal school at j
Peru, a position which he held for six
years and would still hold had he not
been too big and broad a man to let
petty, narrow partizanship dictate to
him in his management of the insti
tution under his charge.
Mr. Crabtree, While a republican in;
politics, believes and has testified to'
that belief by the sacrifice of a posi- j
tion, that the educational institu
tions of our state, both great and '
small should be run not in the inter
est of narrow partizanship, at the dic
tates of ward politicians, but in the
interests solely of the educational
well-fare of the youth of this great

Mr. Maguire publishes a platform
which contains, among other tilings,
a statement that he voted against'
I the tariff bill. This is done to lure j
republicans who think tlie tariff bill
wrong in application to support him.
The reason why republicans oppose
tlie present tariff is that it is, in
some measure a misapplication of
tlie principal of a protective^ tariff,
while tlie reason Maguire voted
against the bill is that he js opposed
to the protective theory.
Abraham Lincoln made the first re
publican tariff speech when he said.
I I know but little of the philosophy
of the tariff; 1 do know however that

This plain, common sense view of
tlie protective theory has been en
acted into law liy tlie republican party
and the result has been that this na
tion lias been builded into an empire,

We have had experiences with the
other theory. Maguire’s theory, and
tlie result was poverty, commercial
stagnation, distress and national dis

continued until William McKinley wa
elected and the republican idea of a
protective tariff was again enacted
into law. Congressman Maguire vot-!
ed against the tariff bill because be
is unalterably opposed to the protec
tive idea. He believes in the demo
cratic tariff for revenue, which has
been repeatedly demonstrated as un
Republicans should remember that
while Maguire voted against the tariff
because it was protective in its nature

which is not protective. Such a

Will Hayward is in favor of the
protective idea and will support a
measure that properly applies it.
Maguire is opposed to the protect

measure that applies it properly or
otherwise. The personal welfare of

concerned in the congressional elec
tion, and every voter who wants corn
and wheat and hogs and cattle kept

Governor Shallenberger in bis re
cent address referred to the tremen
dious power our state laws intrust
to the governor. It excels that of
the crowned kings of England or Ger
many. The provision our law makes
in regard to the power of pardon, is
if things be normal, a wise and neces
sary provision; however if the gover
nor should happen to be an abnormal
man, as for instance Governor Patter
son of Tennessee, who pardoned the
cold blooded murderer of Senator
Carmack, one can see to what it may
lead. Can be seen that the lan
guage of Shallenberger is a timely
warning to the people of Nebraska.
The history of Mayor Dahlman has
been just along this line. He will
draw his greatest support from the
criminal class. "Don’t Forget,” Dahl
man will not forget his fjjends. We
just call our readers attention to a
letter of Dahlman to his "friend” Ma
brav, the outlaw of this state.
