Read the Advertisements.
The following xfrora the Atkin
son Graphic touching up the
Roosevelt administration of graft
and shows how unjust was the re
quiring people to come out west
to register for Tripp county home
steads. We have thought and said
many times that the opening of
Tripp county was more a graft for
the Railroads than any thing else
though perhaps this western coun
try was to some extent advertised
by getting people out here to see
the country but many a poor and
and needy eastern farmer was de
prived of entering into the contest
because of the chancf game and the
ex penes necessary to come and
register. Brother Akin is on the
right trail and if. he will open his
eyes a little wider he will see some
other grafts of the republican party
and he may become a democrat.
I We are glad to see him getting
his eyes open. Here's his article :
" "The next land opening conducte-l
by the government should be con
ducted along more popular lines
than what regulated the Tripp
county opening , which was nothing
but a boom for registering points
and increasing the earnings of the
railroads. It is an admitted fact
that thousands of deserving citi
zens in the far east , south and west
would have gladly seized the oppor
tunity to get a home if they could
have spared the time and money
to have appeared at the registra
tion points to file. They as citizens
under this government were en
titled to an equal show with the
more fortunate citizen who had
time , money and a less distance to
travel and in many cases in no.
need of a home. This unfairness
bould have been obviated by what ;
would have proven to be a popular
drawing by legalizing notaries and
commissioned officers who are nu
merous in every town of any size
in the union to permit any citizpn
who was eligible to appear before
them and register. It is admitted
that this program would not boom
registering points or increase the
railroad dividends and the drawing
might prove to be a voluminous
affair but it would place every ci ti-
zen on an equal footing and give
him a square deal and we trust that
the next laijd opening whether it
be under ' Teddy or Taft will be
considered from the point of the
greatest good to the greatest num
ber and not for the benefit of spe
cial interest. "
Wanted a Change.
In the Jight of the recent elec
tion , it is hard to understand what
the people of Nebraska want.
Two years ago they were clamor
ing for a number of reforms , A
republican governor siw to it tint
these laws were enforced. One
would think that ordinary grati
tude would have insured the re
election of governor and his coworkers -
workers , but the election returns
indicate that gratitude is Lot one
of the dominating qualities of the
of voters of the state. They grasp
ed the first opportunity to repu
diate the administration that has
done more for them than any ad
ministration the state has ever had.
With Editor Ladd of the Albion
News , we are impelled to say : "If
it is a change the people want' and
it seems tint it is. then the coming
legislature should repeal the anti-
pass law , the freight reduction law
the direct primary law and the rest
of the measures of relief passed
and put in force by the last ad
ministration , and the railroad com
mission should go out of business
and the affairs of state turned back
to the railroads to run as best
serves their interest. " Nebraska
will live to regret the day that it
turned down George Sheldon.
Central City Nonpareil.
Yes , the people wanted a
change. They had not forgotten
those reforms that they boast of
wore not favored by Sheldon and
that he appeared unfriendly to the
interests of the people ; that he

over his defeat and his greatness
and the regret of the state for such
a catastrophe ; then , for the further
reasons that the democrats in the
legislature stood shoulder to
shoulder with the reform republi
cans and but for these democrats
the Sheldon administration could
not have boasted of reforms.
Yes , the people wanted a change.
They knew their friends.
Governor Sheldon has abandon
ed the hope of revenge by caHing
'an ' extra session of the legislature
to pass a prohibition measure in
retaliation for not getting as much '
of the brewers vote as he had evidently - i
dently contracted for and expect- ,

publican paper bitterly lamenting |
the defeat of Gov. Sheldon we j
can't help wondering how the ,
writer was so deceived in the man , j

graft was you interested in ? " i
Did the republican party expect
the brewers' vote on their whole
ticket ? Hadn't they ought to b
