"Taft has been to the Yale boat
races , Eoosevelt has been to the
Harvard boat races , one hollered
for one side and the other hollered
for the other side. Taft is a big
good natured man. He laughs ,
and laughs and laughs. Sherman
isaregular "Sunny Jim. " A jolly
fellow , always feels good. " The
foregoing is the constant talk of
the great republican dailies. What
a Jolly , jocose , laughing ticket
what a huge joke on the republican
party. Holt Co. Democrat.
If brother Tarn pi in wishes to
rush the defense of the last con
gress and excuse the defeat of
measures recommended by Pres.
Roosevelt , it is of course his privi
lege. We are at a loss to know
how he will explain the sidetracking
ing of legislation for postal saving
banks , deposit guaranty and other
important measures for the benefit
of the masses. Then turn round
and pass the currency bill for the
benefit of the gamblers of Wall
street. Tekamah Herald ( rep ) .
Help ! Help ! Help !
In our feeble way we have at
tempted tostay at least within
hailing distance of national poli
tics as reported in the metropoli
tan daily papers by their special
correspondents. We own we are
slightly skeptical with regard to
Associated Press stuff relating to
either of the great parties , and
take its utterances with a goodly
amount of saline seasoning. But
whether we missed the road while
we were mooning around to dis
cover the meaning of the "injunc
tion plank" in the republican plat
form , or through our obtuse na
ture , we will be forced to admit
that we are certainly lost in the
political bitterweeds and this is
our first "holler" for help. We
need both a light and a guide.
Wherefore is it thusly :
After the news of Taft's nomi
nation , many of o\ir western re
publicans rubbed their hands to
gether and spoke in tones of su
preme satisfaction , "Ah , that's
good ; it is especially fortunate for
the west , and now Roosevelt's
policies will be carried out. " As
to Roosevelt's policies they were
a little vague , but we're sure that
"trust busting" was one of them.
So they signed "OK" to the nomi
nation and are supreme in their
After the news of Taft's nomi
nation , all of the eastern republi-
ans especially interested in the
'interests" and that the interests
of the "interests" be furthered ,
ruTbbed their hands together and
pake in tones of supreme satis
faction , "That's good , that's
mighty good ; we are now assured
that the republican party will
abolish the energetic and uncom
fortable Rooseveltian methods and
return to the old 'conservative'
ways. " And Wall street smiled
and smiled , and then knocked in
the head of the campaign barrel
and prepared to disgorge the most
normous campaign slush fund
ver employed in a national politi-
al struggle. And they signed
"OK" to the nomination and are
supreme in their crafty faith.
The west says , "Hurrah for
Taft for he's Roosevelt's man , and
the trusts will have to go. "
The eastern money barons shout
"Hurrah for Taft , for he means
; he end of Rooseveltism , and the
west be d , that is , of course , we
' ' . ' "
know Taft's 'right.
Will someone kindly bring a
lantern and show us the way out
of this political jungle ? We'd like
some explaining , for without it
we're lost. How can a man of
Taft's avoirdupois do this gigantic
feat of national contortion ? Where
is Roosevelt all this time ? Who

is Taft r-eally for ? Silence and
darkness all around ; dark , dismal ,

can give us light in the way of an

of J'udgeTaft's _ first injunc
tion : was issued against some Ohio
raili&ad men , .and railroad men
were the-first onesjfhe sonfc to jail
for contempt the contempt con
sisting in violating a court order
which aimed to restrain these men
from exercising the rights of free
speech as guaranteed by the con- i
stitution. Railroad men have not j
forgotten these facts , and a little j
investigation along these lines
among railroad employees will re
veal the fact that they have their

A few weeks ago there was a
meeting of a number of trades I
unionists in Lincoln , called for \
the purpose of looking to the se
curing cf representation in the
next legislature. Jt was decided
to ask the republicans to nominate ,
a couple of republican trades !
unionists , it being conceded that j
the democrats would do so. Lancaster - i
caster county is overwhelmingly
republican and a republican nomi
nation for the legislature is equiva
lent to election. After deciding
to make this request of the re
publican managers it was thought j
wise to appoint a committee of republicans - J
publicans to do the requesting.
Fourteen trades unions were rep
resented at the meeting by twenty-
tvv-o delegates. The committee
was not appointed for the simple
reason that out of the twenty-two
men present not one would serve , !
each one declaring himself for j
Bryan , though most of them were !
republicans , and each saying that
he had made his decision known
so emphatically that "he Avould do
more harm than good" if he tried
to approach the republican leaders.
Significant , isn't it ? And iimay
serve to give the people of the
non-union centers some idea of !
the prevailing sentiment in indus
