It Is a wise move which the govern

lonccining the Importance of uomln-
illng a strong man for \lco president
ineroaM s. There are man ) arguments
in fa\or of putting the best possible
candidate In this Important place and
no against It. The history of the
country shows how many times this
has been proved true. If Taft heads the
ticket there Is little danger of the
"tall wagging the head" whoever maybe
bo chosen for the second place.
There is a growing demand for the
suppression of the tire arm habit. A
recent notable Illustration of the dan
ger of having deadly weapons obtain
able by any irresponsible degenerate
who can steal their prlco was furnish
ed on the stieets of Minneapolis , when
n worthless sixteen-year-old boy level
ed n revolver at the head of an on-
tlio stranger mid without a word of
warning shot him dead. It has been
suggested Hint a law restricting the

might lessen their attraction to boya.

altogether too many fatalities result

MR. BRYAN STRADDLES AGAIN' .
Mr. Bryan's statement on the pro
hibition question , while a prutty com
plete straddle , Is not in nny way so
worded as to afford any comfort to
the prohibitionists. Ilo refuses to con
sider tlio prohibition question as na
tional in its scope , which will not
please the prohibitionists , and he calls
attention to his stand against prohibi
tion in Nebraska years ago , which also
will mean little of comfort to the pro
Hut on the other hand , Mr. Bryan
does little to give any encouragement
to those who do not favor prohibition
He sa > s the question should be settled
by each state , imp ! ) ing that he is with
the majority in every state , whichever
way they chance to legislate.
As a straddle , Mr. Drj mi's prohibl
tiou statement would be hard to beat.
The Norfolk city council is soon to
make a new contract for lighting the
streets of the city. Street lighting
concerns every citizen of Norfolk and
all Norfolk is anxious for more lights.
Time wan a few short years ago when
the Norfolk streets outside the bus- !
ness part of town were altogether un-
illuminated. There has been very
great improvement In the situation In
a comparatively short space of time.
This improved service has merely
tended to whet the public's appetite
for still more light , and now that n
now contract is to be made , It Is op
portune to voice the public desire for
increased street lighting service.
Many small towns have more lights
sprinkled about the street coiners than
Norfolk. There should bo no dark
corners In Norfolk at night. Every
quarter Is entitled to its share of the
illumination. There should bo no discrimination -
crimination between one section of the
city and another. The News does not
favor a waste of light and does not
a k an unreasonable expenditure of
public funds , but so long as the ex
pense is kept within reason , 'I'ho News
believes that the public can be wisely
served by extension of the street
THE VICE PRESIDENCY.
If the republican party reallydc <
sires to come west for a vlco presi
dential candidate , Governor Sheldon
of Nebraska would make much moro
logical timber than Senator Dolllvor
of lovvn. There are many reasons
The greatest objection to Senator
Dolllver'8 vice presidential boom Is
the internal situation in Iowa. Cover
nor Cummins has just been beaten in
an effort to take Senator Allison's
toga. Were Dolllver to bo removed
from the senatorial situation , it would
leave a gap which Cummins would
no doubt Jump Into. Tills would
reopen the terrific factional fight In
Iowa which must work hardship upon
the party in November. And , should
anything happen to Senator Allison ,
two Cummins men might easily be the
result in the two senatorial seats from
And then there are other reasons.
Iowa is n solidly republican state with i
out a candidate on the national ticket.
Nebraska is the state of the coming (
democratic presidential nominee

on the national ticket , Nebraska's rt

a much more logical ground for pluck-

A WOULD WIDE PEH1L.
SnrRoon-Ofnoral W.vman of the
t'nlted States Marine Hospital service ,
ues a warning In regard to the
spread of the bubonic plague , which
should nroiiM' the thought of the nn-
lion. 'This dieadful disease made ltd

It Is ( rue that thus far it has not
penetrated far into the Interior of any
country , nnd if It Is allowed to get n
foothold its possibilities are fearful.
Dr. W.Miinn believes that rats and
( leas spread the disease nnd that there
must be a vigorous campaign against
both If the plague Is to be checked.
There is no doubt but that there Is
a great deal better prospect of check
ing It In this new country wlr > ro sani
tation and cleanliness are the rule ,
than there Is in the congested sinks
of Asia where it has reaped Its mil
lions of victims with the assistance
of lllth nnd bad drainage , but even
here there is need of the most intense
\igllnnce If this country is to be
spared from the spread of the plague ,
nnd every means possible should b >
utali/ed to aveit it.
SAI'CE FOR THE GANDER.
The circumstantial story related by
the New York World , declaring that
Mr. Thomas F. Ryan , the most hated
of all the millloniires next after John
I ) . Rockefeller , paid to the brother-in-
law of Mr. Bonn the sum of $20,000 ,
with the explicit understanding that
It was to be spent in aid of Mr. Bryan's
oandldncy for a seat in the senate from
Nebraska , and that the return for it
was nn agreement that Mr. Bryan
should not oppose the election of Mr.
Parker , his own party's candidate for
pifsident , is relished by the country
as a nuasun ? of substantial justice.
Whatever Us standing as truth or
falsehood , It la fnuco for the gander.
It Is doing to Mr. Bryan as he has
done to every man who did not active
ly support his personal pretensions.
For twelve years he and all his friends
have . declared that every opponent was
inlluenced by corrupt motives ; that
every nnti-Brjnn man In the country
was a tool and a hireling of the money
power. H Is seldom that justice does
not bring homo to those who use this
instrument some telling stroke from
Its own keen edge.
The facts in the case are not dllll-
cult to bring out. There is little ren
ton to doubt that the money was paid.
The evidence on that point is direct
and circumstantial. Mr. Urjan did
not at the time enjoy the income that
he does now. Ills record in money
matters ; is to far fiom being above
reproach that , if it belonged to any
enem ) of his , the country would ring
with the tacts in the Bennett will
cafie. It will not be forgotten that
this man , who died under Mr. Br\dn' .
influence nnd care , left a letter directing
ing hlb wife to pay a sum of $50,000 ,
devised by him in trust , to the Ne
braska candidate. It will be remem
bered that this large sum \va taxed
to the widow's estate only after Mr.
Hran had exhausted the resources of
litigation. It is n shameful fact of
which the record is complete. It Is
ceruiin that Mr. Bryan would not re
ceive money directly ns a bribe. But
it is probably certain that the money
was paid ; and those who know the
record may form their own opinions
as to whether or not Mr. Bryan quietly
gave his consent.
THE TRIBtTE TO ROOSEVELT.
The llfty-minuto pandemoiuliun
which reigned In the Chicago conven
tion Wednesday afternoon when Sen
ator l dge declared that President
Roosevelt is "the best abused nnd
most popular man in the United States
today. " was littlng expression of the
genuine popularity and esteem in
which the people hold the mnn who
has headed the republican party dur
ing the past seven years. The demon
stration was one which must have
taken deep satisfaction to the whlto
house occupant , coming as It did
spontaneously and from the whole na
tion , as It were.
But oven so great n demonstration
could not be expected to move the
president to change his mind upon the
question of accepting another nomin
ation. Anticipating just such an event ,
hi- vi ry ( .pucli nf S. nator Lodge
whiih brought forth almost an hour's
cheering , answered the Identical calls
which came from the throng of thou
sands , "Fouryenrfimoroof Roosevelt ! "

A CAPITALIST CANDIDATE.
One thing the voters should not be
allowed to forget ; and that Is that Mr.
Bryan now represents the capitalist
class. Ho Is a rich man. No one
knows what his investments are , but
they undoubtedly reach a total that
class him with the rich ; not the mil
lionaires , but those who have more
than they can ever need or spend.
His Income Is much greater than hia
capital -presents. i ( . From his news
paper and his lectuie business he is
believed to gather in about $00,000 n
year. There is no dilllculty about finan
cing Mr. Bryan's campaign , and no
mystery about the means by which he
has been enabled to sectiie delegates
from states where public opinion was
at best lukewarm , when not actually
Now let it be understood that The
News IB not criticising the fact that
Mr. Bryan has accumulated money.
Ho has shown praiseworthy intelli
gence and thrift. Ho had made his
perpetual candidacy ) It-Id him returns ,
where similar ambition has bankrupt
ed many a man who started with a
comfortable fortune. Ills political
pioniinence has been to him an asset
in the shape of advertising. By
means of it he has made a newspaper
with a big circulation , and has been
able to reap a rich harvest of big fees
from the lecture platform. Pursued
indefatigably for twelve years , this
lias made him a very rich man. And
while there are many who criticise the
performance on the ground of taste ,
and many who would not care to
amass a fortune In this way , nevertheless -
less the money has been honestly
made. Tills newspaper finds no fault
with Mr. Bryan on that score.
The fault lies in the fact that he
has amassed riches while berating
other men for doing the same thing.
Never a possible rival to Mr. Bryan
lias appeared without being branded
Instantly by himself and his friends
as a cornipter of the electorate.
Never a man showed the possession of
wealth , no matter how acquired , with
out being blurred and slandered.
Bryan is the apostle of class distinc
tion , and of abuse of rich men because
of their riches. This work he has car
ried on in such a way as to become
rich himself. It Is no more than fair
that he should he judged by his own
standards. Those who vote for Bryan
will be supporting a "plutocrat. "
HOW TO BUY STOCKS.
A good many thousand people In
this country are ruined every year
by gambling in stocks. They buy on
a margin in the hope of a rise , or sell
because they believe there will be n
fall. The market disappoints them ,
nnd their deposits are wiped out. They
do not receive and do not deserve
any sympathy , because this is not
actually n business but a purely gamb
ling transaction , it is a bet that
prices will go up or down , just as truly
as a wager that a certain horse will
win n race. The man who puts up
money on such a chance cannot com
plain if ho loses.
But there is a perfectly legitimate
field in the stock market for making
good money ; making It honestly and
making It without the slightest
chance of loss. A good ninny people
have availed themselves of It within
the last six months , and It Is to be
hoped that their experience will en
large the custom. This Is the actual
nnd outright purchase of stocks for
cash , when the market price war
rants It. It la exactly as legitimate
as the purchase of a house or lot or
other commodity because It Is for
sale at less than Its actual value. H
Is a safer and more attractive trans
action ; because you may have to wait

Norfolk hold out inducements to
the farmers In Norfolk's big tenltory
to come Into this center once a .voar ,
.ifter the harvest In the fall , with ex
hibitions of their choicest products
and live stock ? What one thing could
be more conducive to farm improve
ment all along the line ? Object les
sons call forth man's ambition. What ,
than a show of this kind where were
exhibited the choices ! of grains and
live stock , could more bring forth the
ambition and pride of the farmers of
this whole territory In Improving
their products ? And who does not
recognize the Immense value of such
Improvement to every acre of land , to
ovi r > fanner , and to every other in
terest In this agricultural region ?
Otln r cities bold autumn festivals ,
after the harvest , where the people
of their territoiies may congregate ,
shake hands , renew old friendships
and enjoy n festive holiday or two.
These events must be successful
from every viewpoint or they wouldn't
be continued ) car after ) oar.
Last fall Norfolk business men ap
parently unanimous ] ) favored the
establishing hero of some such fall
show , after the plan of the Mitchell
corn palace or the Omaha Ak-Sar-Ben
or a number of such events combined.
But the proposition was never
brought to a head Perhaps The News
has been derelict in its duty. In not
keeping the subject fresh in the pub-
lie mind. Perhaps , after going Into
the matter , the business men may not
deem It advisable. The subject Is
here suggested again for the reason
that now would be the time to act ,
if the occasion were to he framed for
this fall , and for the further reason
that it seems , on the face of it , that
such a plan , if successful in other
cities , ought to be worth doing in
Norfolk. The matter is respectfully
submitted for consideration by the
