' 'control of The Valentine Demo
crat , after having leased the plant
for a year. We are glad to see
Ike back in the harness again at
the old stand. We have learned
to like the frank and open manner
in which he handles his subjects.
There is a strong individuality in
his writing that must attract at
tention. The Democrat has been
" coming to our exchange desk for a
good many years and under a good
" many editors , but we like it best
with 13ro. Rice at the helm and we

Governor Harmon's administra
tion in Ohio , filled as it is with
constructive legislation and re
forms for the benefit of the mass
es , has w on for him enthusiastic
support in Nebraska At a state
wide meeting of Nebraska demo
crats in Fremont , recently , at
which former U. S Senator W.
V. Allen presided , the following
resolution was unanimously adopt
ed :
"We , the supporters of the can
didacy of Gov. Judson Harmon
for the presidency , submit to the
democratic voters of the state of
Nebraska the following as among
the grounds of our support :
l'l. Because it conclusively ap
pears from his record as a public
servant that he is a man of pro
found learn'ng , ripe experience ,
unquestioned integrity , unfalter
ing courage and of broad mind ,
practical and progressive states
2. Because of his immense and
deserved popularity in his own
state and the states adjacent there
to , without the electoral vote of
which the election of a democratic
president in 1912 is a political im
possibility. Therefore , be it
"Resolved , That we urgently
request all democratic voters to
unite with us in our efforts to
bring about the nomination and
election to the presidency of the
United States , Judson Harmon of
Ohio. "
A state wide poll , conducted by
the Lincoln Daily Star , gave the.
following result : Harmon 60o ,
Wilson 210 , Clark 150 , Folk 140 ,

When former President Roosevelt -
velt , before the Ohio constitution
al convention , recently , announced
the platform on which he could
seek to deprive his old friend and
political heir , William Howard
Taft , of a renomination , the Rough
Rider made a strong plea for the
support of insurgents of his party
by endowing practically all of the
governnn nial principles in their
pli'torm taking caie , however ,
to include enough " 'ifs' * ard
lkbuts' ' to pi event , unduly offend
ing ' 'big-business. ' *
As a promiser. Col. Roosevelt !

business and other favor seeking
As a performer , his accomplish
ments are generally "conspicuous
by their absence "
Bick in 1905 , Mr. Roosevelt ,
Wiile president , appointed Judson
Harmon , now governor of Ohio ,
and Frederick W. Judson of St.
Louis , to investigate the charges
of rebating against the Atchisou ,
Topeka G Santa Fe railroad. They
unexpectedly traced the rebating
to the door of Paul Morton , an of
ficial of the company , but at the
time of the investigation a mem
ber ot President Roosevelt's cabi
"Guilt is personal , " said Jud
son Harmon to Pres. Roosevelt ,
and he was for prosecuting the
guilty parties.
Guilt is impersonal was the sub
stance of "the reply by Roosevelt.
"Punish guilty officials , " said
"No , not if they are my friends"
in effect said Roosevelt.
When they were -permitted N ,
to proceed personally against the
guilty officials ( the only method
by which the law could be effect
ually enforced ) , Mr : liarmon and
Mr. Judsony in a letter to Attorn
ey General Moody , dated June 5 ,
1905 , retired from the case.
The following is an extract from
the letter : "What we have said
is particularly true of the great
corporations of our day. They
cannot be imprisoned ; and puni h-
ment by fine is not only inade
quate but reaches the real culprits
only lightly , if at all. The evils
with which we are confronted are
corporate in dame , but individual
in fact. Guilt is always personal
So long as officials can hide behind
their corporations no remedy can
be effective. When the govern
ment searches out the guilty men
and make corporate wrong doing
mean personal punishment and
dishonor the law will be obeyed , "
Neither Mr. Harmon or Roosevelt
velt were at that time candidates
for the presidency , and the mental
attitude of any man upon public
questions is best judged from his
actions and utterances which have
not their source in motives of po
litical expediency. /
Loss of Appetite or Dis
tress After Eating a
Sympton That Should
Not be Disregarded.
Appetite is just a natural desire ,
for food. Loss of appetite or
stomach distress after eating in
dicate indigestion or dyspepsia.
Over eating is a habit very dang
erous to a person's good general
It is not what you eat but what
you digest and assimilate that does
you good. Some of the strongest ,
heaviest , and healthiest persons
are moderate eaters.
There is nothing that will cause
more trouble than a disordered
stomach , and many people daily
contract serious maladies simply
through disregard or abuse of the
