"FOK THE NOMINEE. "
The World-Herald reproduces
the following paragraph from its
contemporary , the local republi
can organ , merely to give its read
ers a glimpse of a Great Editor
caught in the very act of making
a Crushing an'd Happy "Retort :
The Double-Ender is work
ing itself into a frenzy of ex
citement over the question of
what candidate the republi
cans of Nebraska will support
for president. It may rest
assured of one thing that in
November , 1908 , the answer
will come back , as it did so
many years ago under similar
conditions , "We're for the
That ought to hold 'most any
body for awhile or more. It's not
only charmingly original but over
whelmingly convincing. It leaves
nothing more to be said. Ne
braska republicans are "for the
nominee" regardless. They don't
care who he is , just so he's a re
publican they're for him. They
don't give a tinker's dam what he
stands for , just so he wears the
republican label they're
Principles don't count ; it's mere
ly the party name that counts ; it's
only for that the republicans vote
according to their leading organ.
Nebraska republicans , if we may
believe the Bee , will be guilty of
no such act of foolishness as thous
ands of Nebraska democrats com
mitted in 1901- when they voted
for Roosevelt rather than Parker
because they believed Roosevelt
more nearly a real democrat than
his democratic opponent. Ne
braska republicans don't regulate
their voting that way. They vote
simply for the man , no matter
who he is and no matter what his
principles , who bears the party
name ; that is , they do if the Bee
is authorized to speak for them.
The national convention , there
fore , is notified in advance by the
republican organ in this state that
it need have no concern about Ne
braska ; it need not put itself out
to please Nebraska republicans ; it
need not worry if it displeases
them. For Nebraska republicans
"are for the nominee" under any
and all .circumstances. They don't
think for themselves ; they don't
assert themselves ; they simply
vote as they're told.
We wonder , really , if the Bee
believes it. World-Herald.
Henry Murphy lives about 12
miles west of Brownlee , south of
the Loup River , in this county ,
Banner is his postoffice and he
keeps it in his house for the ac
commodation of his friends and
neighbors , as well as himself. He
raises cattle and horses and does
some farming , raising the family
vegetables and grain for his horses
and co vs. He has a comfortable
home and has time to read and
study political questions as they
come up from time to time , in
volving different subjects and em
bracing new ideas and forms. Mr.
Murphy is a careful thinker and a
sound reasoner , and has always
been. You don't have to talk
with him long or hear him discuss
a subject without concluding that
he knows what he is talking about ,
and his careful meditations are al
ways worth hearing. He is sel
dom wrong and his honesty of
purpose impresses those who hear
him with more than ordinary in
terest. Mr. Murphy presents a
few facts in a letter received last
week in which he says "the finan
cial jungle is the most prominent
thistle in the door yard at the
present time , " and that he has
not seen anything in the news
papers that he has had access to
that gave the compilation of fig
ures as-he has studied them. Read
what he says :
