We always like to record the triumphs
of a young genius. The following is

FOR CONGRESS. I
Dr. Homer A. Hansen of this city has
entered the list of republicans of the
Third district for congressional honors,
and will seek the nomination 'with his
customary promptness and vigor; if
nominated, he will do his level best to
succeed CoBgressmanBobinson at Wash
ington. Homer A. Hansen was born at Logan,
Ohio, Nov. 2, 1872; he attended the local
schools, and afterwards the Toledo (O.)
Medical college and the Rush Medical
college at Chicago, also the Northern
UKnois college of Fulton, 111., where he
graduated in March, 1895, after which be
located in this county at Monroe, and
has been in the practice of his profession
there, at Platte Center and later in this
city, except that in 1898 he took a post
graduate course in New York City, and
pent in 1900, six months in post-graduate
work at Berlin and Heidelberg.
The doctor is an ardent republican,
and does with vim whatever he under
takesa quality that will not only make
him a formidable candidate for the nom
ination, bat also in the after contest for
Those not acquainted with the doctor,
who have in any manner been led to be
lieve that his candidacy means anything
leas or anything other, than the best
interests of the republican party of this
district and the country at large, should
be disabused at once of the belief. The
doctor is an independent thinker, and
would notcoart a seeming success at
the expense of integrity of purpose or
He enters the campaign at once, and
with an enthusiastic, Platte county del

FOR THE OLD SOLDIER.
The census bureau gives 104,834 sol
diers as receiving a pension of $6 per
month; 13893 at $8, and 38,452 at $10
per month. Congressman Burkett of
Nebraska is in favor of bringing all up
to $12 per month, and said the other day
"Eleven years ago congress said that a
soldier who was incapacitated from earn
ing a support by manual labor should
have of the bounties of the nation $12
per month and not less than $6 per
month proportioned to the degree of
inability to earn a support.
The war then was only removed twenty-five
years. Today it is thirty-six
years since the last soldier was mustered
out In all that great army of veterans
few, comparatively, are under GO years of
age. Much the larger proportion are
probably over 65 years of age.
With the infirmities of age stealing on
them, with the toils and cares of life
burdening them down, with the .years of
war and bloodshed that they experienced
taken into consideration, it is my judg
ment that none of them are able to earn
a support by manual labor; at least that
may be said of the great majority of
them; and for one, if it is necessary, in
order to do away with all the examina
tions and the evidence and the parleying
and the jockeying to establish inability
to perform manual labor, I am in favor
of establishing that fact by law. Sup
pose one of them has retained his health
and his vigor, and really does perform
mannyl labor, I shall rejoice in the fact,
rather than begrudge him the benefits of
the law, if this bill should pass.
The pension system should be a com
fort to the old soldier rather than a
worry. Its benefits should be obtained
in the easiest possible manner consistent
r. the fJtoty natkm j
frauds. What the government is going
to do, it ought to do generously and
magnanimously, and not niggardly and
The Journal believes that the United
States owes a very considerable share of
its material prosperity to the cultivation
and development of its inventive genius.
This is clearly evidenced in the superi
ority of American machinery; in the fact
that other nations have recognized this
superiority, and are making use of it to
enable them to keep within hailing dis
tance of the forward-moving world. The
rewards of genius of the inventive sort
have certainly been great in this country,
and especially so during the last fifty
years, but we can readily believe that
during the next fifty, to the youth who
are now delving down at the roots of
power and force, in the study of chemis
try and physics, and who, in the higher
mathematics, are working out the for
mulas, which to the alert mind, in gen
eral principles, picture the living uni
verse, there is a grand opportunity for
usefulness. According to all indications,
we are on the eve of marvelous develop
ments, which may revolutionize onr
social and commercial life.
Visitors to Lincoln from other cities
in the state and from the country pre
cincta are unusually outspoken in regard
to state politics. "You people in Lin
coln,'' said a Seward county republican,
"have no idea how opposition has devel
oped against any nomination that could
be construed as an approval of the par
don of ex-Treasurer Bartley. It is wide
spread and to be seen so plainly on the
aarface that no one can mistake the
meaning. I believe the republican party
would lose 500 votes in Seward county if
Governor Savage is renominated.''
The above taken from the State Jour
nal of Monday may be putting it a little
strong aa regards this county, but it is a
fact nevertheless, that the nomination of
Savage by the element that sought Joe
Bartley's pardon, would cost the Repub
lican' ticket dearly in this county. Sav
age has served the purpose of his bosses,
and it is their plan now to sidetrack him,
although the deluded Governor announ
ces himself aa a candidate for the nomi
nation. Seward Blade.
Speaking in general, the law of this
country is favorable to the general wel
fare. The supreme court of the United
States, in a recent case involving Ken
tucky statates touching the powers and
datiesof the railroad commission of that
state, have simply emphasised the well
known principles aa heretofore announc
ed from time to time by the highest court
in the land. Under the express provi
sions of the Kentucky statute the rail
road can be prosecuted before the grand
jury of aay eoaaty where" the offense is
committed. And why should not this
be good law?

Mt Dear -Mb. Turner: I've just laid
down the last issue of the old Journal.
It always has something to interest me.
This time it is your notice of a forthcom
ing farmers' institute, which takes me
back to the first farmers' institute in
Platte county. It was in 1886 or 1887, 1
think, and was under the auspices of our
Farmers Clnb. I remember it took a lot
of hard work to get a working program
in shape and the people interested. But,
thanks to The Journal largely, in spite
of a blizzard snow storm, we had a good
attendance and an excellent meeting.
R H. Henry presided. Governor Furnas
gave the principal address, and then
good local papers followed, by profitable
discussions. We did not discuss how
best to grow alfalfa, but if it could be
grown at all in Nebraska.
Since then, farmers' clubs and insti
tutes have grown into the most import
ant factors in progressive agriculture in
Then your item concerning the dedi
cation of your new opera house interests
me exceedingly. I bail watched its
progress from the inception of the pro
ject One thing especially attracted my
attention. That is, that so many of the
men connected with the enterprise were
the same as those who have been identi
fied with every forward movement in
your city and county for the past quar
ter of a century.
But these two items are rather of sen
timental interest, and of the past An
other concerns material interests of your
county in the future, and I think to an
extent that is difficult for your people to
fully appreciate, that is the one concern
ing the encouragement of the irrigation
project There are two or three hin
drances to overcome in every locality
where irrigation is tried for the first.
Farmers are naturally conservative, tak
ing up new methods slowly, until they
have seen their success fully demon
strated; again, irrigation is something
that takes time and experience to fully
master. The application of water to
different soils and crops must be care
fullv and patiently studied, before entire
success is secured. It is also true that
farming under irrigation calls for a
higher grade of intelligence than dry
farming. But, when it is once mastered,
results are simply wonderful. When any
one from Platte county interested in its
agricultural progress, chances to be in
southern California I wish he would
hunt me up. He certainly will want to
visit Riverside, and when here any one
will put him in the way of finding me.
It would give me the greatest pleasure
to show such a person what irrigation
has done and is doing here. I would
take him to lands that could not be sold
for $20 per acre before water was brought
to them, which readily brought from
$100 to $150 per acre with no other im
provements than that water was supplied,
and are now making good returns on
the investment, though used only for
stock, dairy or grain farming.
Mrs. Reed and I propose spending a
part of the coming summer in the east,
and Columbus will be our first stopping
place. We will probably not recognise
much of onr Columbus of ten years and
more ago, excepting in some of our old
friends whom we hope to meet I'm
recently back from a month's touring in
Old Mexico. Fnll of interest and con
stant surprises. J. H. Reed.

Mr. Bryna Gets Tannic WMfc Sto
Wlaatalll f taawrlallMB.
Ia The Commoner of Dec. 20 Mr.
Bryan haa n lengthy editorial aader
the' caption of ' "Iglesias' Terrible
Crime.' The first two paragraphs of
the article indicate the subject matter
"Samuel Gompers, president of the
American Federation of Labor, recent
ly protested to President Roosevelt be
cause of the arrest of Saatlago Iglesias
by the American authorities in Porto
"Iglesias arrived In San Juan Nov.
10 and was Immediately arrested. The
Associated Press dispatches say. The
public prosecutor asked that he be sen
tenced to a term of imprisonment on
the ground that be Is a dangerous la
bor agitator and Is continually causing
unrest' On Dec. 12 Iglesias waa sen
tenced to three months' imprison
ment" With the foregoing aa a text Mr. Bry
an grew rattier wildly rhetorical. He
took advantage of the occurrence to
champion liberty and the rights of la
bor and to throw fearful verbal shad
ows on the dangers of imperialism. He
puta the ominous question, "If to be a
labor agitator In Porto Rico ia a crime.
how long will It be before to be a la
bor agitator within the United States
will be an offense, against the law)"
And a little further along, with rhet
oric glowing and sizzling, he vaults to
his climax in the following words:
"Proceedings such as those resulting in
the arrest of this so called 'labor agi
tator are a part and parcel of the trap
pings of a monarchy and nave no place
In a republic. They have no part In a
nation of freemen."
Mr. Bryan is surely lawyer enough
to know that all his talk was based on
a false assumption. He must know
that as a general proposition Porto
Uico still has Its old laws. He cer
tainly could not have been Ignorant
of the fact that Iglesias was convicted
under a law that belonged to the time
of Spanish rule. If indeed he was
Ignorant it was for him an unpardon
able Ignorance. If he knew the truth,
'then why did be talk upon -the as
sumption that It was a heinous thing
for which the party now in power in
this country was responsible?
Another thing, Mr. Bryan charges to
what he ordinarily calls Imperialism
that which In fact expressly negatives
the Idea of imperialism. The convic
tion of Iglesias under an old law of
Porto Rico indicates that the people
there have their own local laws, which
Is Indicative certainly that they are
not the victims of Imperialism, not
subject to laws made by a conqueror.
It is rather amusing indeed, butit is
none the less true, that Mr. Bryan's
article is a plea, if Jt is anything at all,
for a sort of Imperialism in Porto Rico,
since in Its essence it is a complaint
because American law does not obtain
there. The tangle that he gets himself
Into Is obvious to the thoughtful read
eran anti-imperialist pleading for Im
perialism because imperialism means
greater liberty. It is precisely as if
he should demand that the federal gov
ernment overturn and replace the laws
and procedure of Louisiana because
not like unto and administered after
the same fashion as those of Nebraska.
TRUTH IN A NUTSHELL.
Tast DttTereaee Between Keelareeltf
ana Free Trade.
That the newer northwest, with Its
vaBt timber and mineral resources just
beginning to feel the first Impulse of
development, fully appreciates the val
ue of the protective policy, supple
mented by reciprocity, and the sharp
difference between the latter and free
trade Is very aptly demonstrated by
the Idaho Statesman In a recent edito
rial which contains one of the neatest
and clearest definitions of the essential
difference between reciprocity and
free trade that we recall having seen.
"We have a class of Democratic pa
pers that have never learned anything
and probably never will. These think
the movement within the Republican
party for application of the reciprocity
principle is an abandonment of protec
tion. Such papers are for free trade,
and they grasp at any development
which they think promises to carry
them nearer that goal. In a majority
of cases such papers favor free trade
because those controlling them cannot
understand the subject and are Influ
enced by old associations. These can
not grasp the effect of protection on
the country. It Is all a blank to them,
and, parrotlike, they repeat the old
phrase In advocacy of the exploded
"Reciprocity was advocated by the
party in the time of Blaine. It has
been held as a tenet of the party ever
since. It Is In no sense related to free
trade, but aims to exchange certain
benefits. Under free trade we would
surrender all the enormous advantage
of our system without securing any
thing. Under reciprocity we simply
make an exchange. We reduce the tar
iff on certain selected lines from the
country with which the treaty Is made
and In return are directly granted
equal or greater benefits In the mar
kets of that country. We do not give
away anything, but make an exchange
which appears to us to be greatly to
That Is the proposition In a nutshell.
Free trade Is giving everything for
nothing. Reciprocity is giving some
thing for something end doing our best
to get the big end of the bargain. We
had a sufficient taste of the free trade
proposition under the Wilson-Gorman
tariff, and the American people will
have to have a long period of forget
fulness before they dream of returning
to that disastrous policy.
