That we bought THE VALENTINE
DEMOCRAT , a mere youth at the
time , lacking in experience , but
we had the ability , to keep it go
ing at least , and exchanged it for
We now have some experience
for sale to get the more important
"ability. "
Now , confidential , we have done
well here and made some money.
But we gave good value for every
dollar we earned , and while we
have been taking in the dimes our
friends with whom we have trav
eled side by side , have taken in
the dollars. Some , however , have
done no better than we.
"We are older and many of you
perhaps have noticed that \vehave
passed our zenith of youth and
We are still hoping for demo
cratic success , and , though this
may be our life's work , we be
lieve our cause to be just and
worth the price.I
We have labored hard for , hu
manity , for more jtist and equa
Jaws for the people , and opposed
those combined to defeat justice
and equality.
To the many friends of THE
DEMOCRAT we extend greeting.
You believe in justice and we feel
encouraged by loyal support
throughout the past 12 years. We
want to make THE DEMOCRAT a
better newspaper and give you
more for your money than before
We need your encouragement
and support to do this , and we
want you to drop in to see us
when you have news or business
for us. We're also glad to visit
with you.
Tell your neighbor he ought to
take THE DEMOCRAT. Lot's d .
something for each other. This is
how you can do something for us.
A dozen year ? , and hundreds
have never missed a copy of the
paper in that time.
THE DEMOCRAT ought to have
2,000 subscribers and we intend to
get them in the next year. We
want you to help.
Yours faithfully ,
The democrats will need ' 0
' electoral votes more than Bryan
got in 190S to carry the election
this year. To do this Gov. Harm
on can carry New York , Ohio ,
West Virginia , Missouri and In
diana , which will make 106 votes
more , but could lose Nebraska
and Indiana and have enough to
win. Now , there's no use in be
ing .foolish about your choice for
president. Wilson may be a good
man but he can't carry these
pivotal states.
Who can but Judson Harmon ?
We do not wish to detract from
that grand old Missourian whom
v every Kansas and Nebraska demo
crat loves , the sound of whose
name brings good cheer.

we love him , cannot , b eucfced we

Only a few days ago The
Chancellor was launched by Laurie
J. Quinby and J. W. Metcalfe as
16-page weekly , claiming to stand
for fundamental progressive de
mocracy. At the time we made
comment that we did not favor
these "middle of the readers ,
holier than thoir' sidesteppersand
that "plain democracy" was good
enough for us.
Indeed , it is good enough for
Already we find this "holier
than thou" sheet complaining over
the results of the primary , because
Metcalfe was not nominated for
governor and because Champ
Clark received the preferential
Then comes this absurd state
ment as though belched from a
foul stomach : "If the democratic
party has no othej recourse than
to follow such policies and such
men , there can no longer remain
" ' " * "
any excuse for its existence " "
The time is apparently ripe for a
new deal all around , which means
the formation of a new party gf
progressive American ideals , such
as controlled the formation of the
republican party in 1856. It can
not come too soon. "
Then the writer of that editorial
is not a democrat , nor a funda
mental democrat , nor a .progress
ive , fundamental democrat.
The democratic party believes
in majority rule and the greatest
good for the greatest number.
Bro. Quinby evidently believes
in bolting , in revolution , and if he
can't get what he wants , petulently
as a child , "he won't play. " He
was not raised right or he'd have
had more respect for the opinions
of others , and evidently was never
ta ught that splendid maxim that
should be a part of youth's train
ing : "He , who would be a lead
er , must show himself capable of
being led. "
If Mr. Quinby is a leader he
should forge his way the front of
the party of the people and by his
wise sayings and doctrines he
should lead if he is right.
But we will not follow him ,
jumping from the known to the
unknown desert land where there i
is no hope , no promise and no
precedent , excepting another jump
made previously perhaps. For ,
as soon as Mr. Quinby had a half
dozen followers , he would again
find the same difficulty in keeping
with them and he'd jump again.
These jumpers Lever amount to
much. People soon learn them.
The steady men who build upon
thf rock do not have to keep
Let us build upon the solid rock
of democracy without further
words or commentation. We
have no need of another name.
PI H democracy is good enough
f ) r us and we are willing for the
honest majority to rule.
Give us back our Arab steed.
We have no sympathy for these
side steppers , disrupters , middle-
of-the-roaders and traitors to the

The supplementary report of
the Stanley investigation com
mittee shows that 23 men officers
and directors of the steel trust
are in absolute control of corpora
tions representing a capitalization
of $35,521,143,000. These men ,
through interlocking boards of
directors , virtually control all the
great railroad systems , street rail
ways , express companies , steam
ship companies , the large indus
trial corporations , a system of
powerful banks and trust com
panies , and insurance companies.
The total wealth of this nation
is only a little over three times the
sum that these 23 men control ab
solutely. Twenty-three men in
control of more than 30,000,000
of their fellow American citizens !
Isn't this a fine condition of af
fairs to exist in a republic ?
Eaton Huntington Hooker ,
treasurer of the Roosevelt league ,
has just filed with the secretary of
state of New York a list of con
tributors to the Roosevelt cam
paign fund. This sworn affidavit
reveals that in the city of New
York alone , George W. Perkins ,
organizer of the harvester trust
and director of the steel trust ,
spent 815,000. Frank A. Mun-
sey , the largest individual holder
of the steel trust's common stock
in the country , contributed § 15,000
more. ' Thirty thousand dollars of
steel trust money spent in a city
of one state alone , and there are
48 states in the union ! This sworn
statement shows that in New York
City § 59,126.75 was spent to get
about 15,000 Roosevelt votes , or
practically § 4 a vote.

BUsr-ssriETs : MEETING
Dr. Scott of the University of Wiscon.
sip. Delivers Atidrcss at O'Neill.
O'Neill , Neb. , April 27. Dr. William
A. Scott of the University of \ \ isccn-
sin deliveicd an address before the
business men of O'Neill en the subject
or bsnkiiis and currency reform.
The speaker VVT.S introduced byJr. .
S. J. Weakes of the O'Neill National
bank , Avhose introductory remarks
were brief. During Dr. Scott's vidit
to O'Neill heYJIS shown through the
Sisters' academy and other points of
intcipptvbv Mr. E. F. Gallagher of the
First National bank.
Dr. Scott , who is a political econo
mist of prominence , reviewed currency
legislation from the tiino of the ori
gin of nrtional bonks , and explained
in detail the pp Fcns of the year with
which tc carryon the regular commer
cial transactions , which means the
moving of the crops and moving all
kinds of products from the producer
to the consumer. He showrd wherein
the law should he amended so that
the business people could be provided
with a currency which would meet
their everyday n erls in seasons of
commercial activity. He explained
why it was that hundreds of millions
of currcncv were locked up in the
banks in the government vaults , utter
ly use'eps , while the business people
.vere ? iiffciing for a greater volume of
fiMTcncy every spring and fall with
which to handle the commerce of the
country. Ho showed that the pro
posed plan for the National Reserve
association would meet e\ery require
ment of the case , affording an ample
volume of currency at all seasons of
Lhe year , and enabling sound business
louse ? to get what money they needed
upon comm.prcial paper based upon
Ui9 Vv'oll known commodities which go
to make up the business and com
merce of the countrv from day to day
and month to month. Ho showed
wherein the propcs d plan would re
lieve the stress of the local banker
and enable him to accommodate his
rustomers for all their legitimate
needs , and that a flurry down in Wall
street caused by the speculators and
nhuigers would not disturb the finan
cial conditions in the webt un'lc. * the
proposed Ipgislation. TIe also showed
how the plan would obviate bank
panics and how it would promote the
interest o { the grain and cattle pro
ducer , as well as the merchant.
Er. Scott spoke under the auspices
pf the National Citizens' League for
the promotion of sound banking.
Dr. Scott spoke to the people of
Valentine Friday night and was in
