The proas bureau of the Nebraska real

the commonwealth. The land la doing
nil that in nocowmry in that ( It-
root loa itself , and the press bureau in
merely letting interested people of the
unfit know what the soil la accomplish
ing. It has boon producing crop stalls-
tloa during several years that may well
bo calculated to cause the oyoH of
eastern agriculturists to open wide with
nitonlHlmicnt regarding the opportun-
itira proBonted by Nebraska soil.
There la a bill before the logialaturo
providing for an appropriation to oroot
in Lincoln a lire-proof building to bo
used a n museum and library by the
Nobrnnka State Hiatorical society for
the safe preservation and oxhlbition of
Its historical documents , books , relics ,
etc. The bill contemplates the expen
diture of 135,000 , not otherwise appro
priated , for this purpose , This ia an
inntitntlon of much advantage to Ne
braska in recording historical data and
gome nHsistnuoo from the tttuto would bo
n deserving recognition of itR value.
It is the opinion of many that if it
canto to n ohoioo between providing fern
n state exhibition at the St. Louis fair
nud nn appropriation for the erection of
this building the legislators would show
Bjwlflu discretion in favoring the appro
priation for the historical society , Tills
ia Bomothing of permanent importance
to the Htato nud ns a matter of adver
tising would accomplish far more in the
long run than n similar iuvohtmout in
the exposition at St , Louis.
Congressman Sulzor , democrat , of
Now York , thinks that President llooso-
volt is sincerely desirous of having an
affective anti-trust inoiwuro passed nt
this posslou of congress , but charges
that his party ( lees not support him in
hia undertaking. The congressman
might bo justified in his contention if
the president's party was composed
wholly of some of the eastern loaders ,
bat they are not the party nud if there
was an opportunity for the rank and
file to register their sentiments it would
bo fouud that they nro in line with the
president , and not only republicans ,
tout the members or. other parties HB
vroll would register their npproval of
the pi esldout's course. The only liuo ou
which there could bo a dlvisiou is that
while umuy people \TOuld favor a law
directed agniust capital in all its forms ,
others believe only in curbing those
forms of capital that attempt monopo
lization and trust methods to the injury
of labor and trade and the elevation of
prices. The people will bo fouud in
support of the president and if the
congressmen and eouators do not sup
port his policy there are likely to bo
radical changes of people who ore
Bout to represent the various states in
the national legislature.

The movement for the good roads
which is being carried forward by the
national government creates uo en
thusiasm In Nebrnnka. Why ? Be
cause our roads nro almost perfect and
the need of improvoinomt is not seri
ously felt. A Nebraska man Col
Richardson of Omaha is at the head of
the movement but ho has as yet devoted
uo time to Nebraska. Why should ho
when wo have thousands of miles of ns
perfect roadway as can bo found in the
world ? Good roads menu bigger loads
and greater profit in the marketing of
produce or in getting supplies. It is
hard to convince some eastern people
that our roads are always good. Spring
months in eastern states BOO bottomless
roads , but not so in Nebraska. No arti
ficial road has yet boon devised that

The ovation tendered Mr. Bryan was
the most enthusiastic of the evening.
Ho assorted that if there Is any
one man in the country who has suf
fered on account of lack of Democrat
ic harmony , ho Is that man , and
charged that It was the opposition of
alleged Demociats within the ranks
of hia party that brought him to de
feat in 1890 and 1900.
Ho said that ho know all the men who
had gene astray in those years and
that since that tlmo they had suffered
Bovere heart burning.
"If It Is such n serious affair to
change party allegiance , " Mr. Bryan
said , "I hope thcso men will stay
out of the Democratic party. There
can bo no harmony between Demo
crats who carry knives for each other
and hate each othor. There is a bet
tor chnnco to mak.e Democrats out of
Republicans than out of Palmer and
Buckner men , I still believe in the
platform adopted at Chicago In 189G ,
and nt Kansas City In 1900. I liavp
no thought of surrendering my con
victions. Our principles wore true
then , they arc true now. I would
not chnngo thorn If I could. Neither
would I surrender my principles to
win any victory , however great. "
Mr. Bryan said he did not propose
to take his Democracy from any Dem
ocratic leader who received his trainIng -
Ing from Wall street.
