Judge Parker Is now announcing

that they nhould | iut up thulr best and

The domncratlo party has been try
ing quite hard to overtake the repub
licans In the matter of advocating
measures that will meet with popular
approval and at the sumo time prove
of henotU to the public , but they are
always several years too late In gain
ing the position and the questions are
generally emphatically settled long
before they arrived on the scene. They
are now where the republicans stood
years ago on curtain public questions.
Just now they are endeavoring to
catch up on the republican ninnotary

To all appearances A. A. Worsloy
of llutto Is about the most pnpulai

of speed-maker for lion , Moses P
Klnknld In his record run agntns
time for congressman of the big Sixth
and was nominated with the under
standing that he should \vltlulru\
from the state ticket. At the muotlnt.
of the committee however , at Lincoln
they refused to permit his withdrawn
from thu state ticket , and ho Is In
dilemma what to do. In the mean
time It Is said that ho has boon noml
natinl for the state senate from th
Thirteenth district. The fioquoncy
with which Mr. Worsley Is handed a
nomination Is evidence of ono or two
things : He must either be popular In
the party. Is toady to complacently
and uncomplainingly shoulder all the
empty honors that his party and Its
allies can bestow , or there Is a dearth
of populist statesmen In his part of
thu state and he Is compelled to take
the several places on the ticket as an
evidence that his party Is really a
living and moving fact.
The Kearney Democrat , In politics
as its name Indicates , charges that the
solo and only reason for the two fu
sion parties putting up a state ticket
this yenr was to afford trading ma
terial on the legislative ticket that
Mr. Bryan might bo sent to the sen
ate. The lenders of neither party ex
pect to elect a single democrat or
populist to a state otllce , but they do
expect It to afford good trading ma
terial for the state senatorial and rep
resentative candidates. It looks very
much as though the convention was
Intent only on giving to Mr. llryan

Bryan to bo thrown over the transom
at the national convention was bad
enough , In nil reason ; but when his
friends and admirers attempt to pay
the ntaloiuil party debt t o the former
leader , after they had cast him out ,
by selling their entire ticket is dis
graceful. If the Nebraska democrats
and populists had wished to pny the
party debt to Mr. Bryan nnd pour oil
on the wounds ho received at St.
Louis , they might nt least have at
tempted nn honorable payment with
out sacrificing all their other friends
and nominees.

Nebraska Is too much ono sided this
campaign to enjoy any large degree
of the political excitement that will
bo experienced In the doubtful states
of the country , but It will come In for
a sluira of political interest on its
own account , no doubt , and some stir
ring times may quite confidentially
bo anticipated between this time nnd
the date of election. Not a little of
the Interest will bo on account of the
fight for .state and district ofllcos.
There Is some Interest In the Second
end district regarding who will be the
republican nominee for congress. Two
years ago the election wont to Mr.
Hitchcock of the World-Herald , be
cause of the bitter fight made against
Dave Mercer , both before and nttor
the convention. This yenr It Is not
improbable that the republicans will
unite on a satisfactory man and Mr.
Hitchcock will boshown that It was
more his good fortune than fusion
supremacy that landed him In the
house of representatives.
General Stossol was bravo when ho
told the Japanese that no thougjit of
surrender was in his mind , but at the
same time he was evidently aware
that ho was In n perilous situation ns
he has bidden good bye to a friend In
these words : "Farewell , forever. Port
Arthur will bo my tomb. " The only
advantage to Russia In the course
pursued by the bravo otllcer will bo
to delay the movement of the Japan
ese nnd perhaps exact enough of the
enemies' lives In forfeit to pay for
Russian losses. Kven this seems like
Inadequate payment for the loss of
General Stossel and his bravo sol
Champ Clark is more inconsistent
at times than other democrats.
When In ono breath ho declared that
the republicans desired to rule the
country by assassination and In the
next promised to cut the throat of
the man who called him a liar , from

that he was ns bad as the republicans
ho condemned , the only difference be
ing that his threatened crime might
have been considered murder with
premeditation and malice afore
thought , rather than assassination.
The politicians nre soon to have
straw to Indicate how the wind Is
blowing and it will bo furnished by
Vermont which holds Its election on
September 6. There are no bets to be
had against the proposition that It
will go republican , but there Is n
chance for doubt whether It will give
a stronger republican majority than
heretofore or a lighter vote. It will

The fuslonlsts are trying for votes

plied promise that they can pay the

ernment than under that of the re
publicans. An election with such a

er disaster than a defeat. The tax
payers will be compelled to meet the
Indebtedness of the state and pay the
running expenses or BO further into
debt whether it be under republican
or fusion government and the party
that will make the taxes heavy enough
to meet these demands Is the ono de

the debt Is wiped out the sooner will

The amateur entertainment given at

of the kind ever seen In Atchlson.
The Mnglng of Miss Rildno Farrlson
was something awful , sounding most
of the time like a pig squealing for
romethlng to eat. Miss Miss Farlln-
son Is n victim of politeness. Her
fi lends pretend to enjoy her singing
In private , whereas they were bored.
They spurred her on to make herself
extremely ridiculous last night , nnd
did grent harm by not giving her n
hint of the truth. The Londerson sis
ters played a duet on the piano for
fifteen minutes by the watch. It was
simply awful , but the audience
thought It would not be polite not to
applaud ; nnd brought on a second nt
tack which lasted ten minutes. The
sisters were probably ruined for
good housekeeping by this misap
plied kindness of the audience. Fal-
son Interson , a youth who should bo
put to work , sang one of those maud
lin popular songs about Sadie going
away from home because her father
would not keep her supplied with
street car tickets. Fnlson loafs around

never amount to anything. The violin
lin solo by Miss Ancherly was too
bad for description , and the accom

Polnton wore the dame old thing , on

from the right channel of housework
and dishwashing. It was nn unfortu

and no good can come of It.
