An Omaha company has secured a

is so confident that it is now building a
large derrick and will begin at once
boring for oil.

still sore on Fellers, George A. Scott
will receive the biggest majority ever
given any republican candidate in this

There should be no politics in select
ing a man to fill the office of county
attorney. Ability, sound judgment and
business tact are essential in an aspirant
for the position and all of theso are pos

phrey Leader (dem.)
The story of prosperity under repub
lican policy is best told in the increase
of money used, money earned and money
saved. In the year the Wilson tariff bill
was passed the total deposits in all the
banks of the United States were $4,667,
990,328. Between the election of McKin
ley and 1899 there was an increase of two
billions. Does not that show prosperity
of a solid kind?
The Boers show gratitude toward the
hundreds of brave Americans who shoul
dered rifle and entered into the thick of
the fight with them to gain their liber
ties, but very little sympathy have they
for the wind-jamming pettifoggers who
thousands of miles away from the scene
of carnage advocated measures that in
no way possible could have benefited
them in the least.
Ebxkst H. Phelps, the republican
candidate for state senator, Platte and
Colfax counties, has held important
positions of trust in his home city and
Ailed them with credit and honor to
himself and satisfaction to the people.
Hs is an able young man and no voter
need ever feel ashamed for having cast
his ballot for such a man. See that his

The citizens of Platte county and this
asaatorial district should be glad of the
opportunity they have to send a good
business bid to the legislature as they
now have in the person of Capt Ernest
H. Phelps. He is a very competent
yoang man and whose candidacy, since
be has visited the citizens in the various
parts of this county, has grown wonder
fally in favor with our people.
Eveb since political history began in
this country, the democrats have always
been opposing that which is, and never
proposing that which ought to be. This
is particularly true concerning the tariff
and every other big measure of public
importance. It is this spirit of negation
which the progressive people of this
ooaatry fear, and which will this fall
lead to the election of a republican house
A oobkbspondejjt writing to the Sid

John CL Dawson, republican candidate
for representative of Platte county, is a
aaecessfal fanner, well read in all mat
tars of a public nature, and if elected to
the office to which he aspires would deal
with all questions up for settlement with

When you go to the polls to vote next
Tuesday don't forget that every republT
can candidate on the ticket represents a
party which has brought you work;
which has made it possible for mortgages
to be paid off; for new enterprises to be
established; homes and store buildings
to be erected; has in short brought you
more prosperity in the last four years
than was even promised by the republi
cans. No nation in the world enjoys the
luxuries that we do and no people can
deplore their absence as our nation.
When yon vote don't forget that you
have enjoyed luxuries under republican
administrations and exactly the opposite
under democratic rule. Don't forget
that Mickey represents the highest type
of manhood, that the worst things said
against him by his enemies is that he is
an honest man in all things. Every man
on the state ticket should have your
support because they are the men who
represent law and order.

For assessor, no one will question that
O. G. Shannon has not given almost
universal satisfaction in that capacity
and his party has re-nominated him for
the position; be certainly merits a re
election. C. E. Watson, deputy commissioner of
labor, has compiled Bulletin no. z, on
Nebraska's Industries and Resources.
The bank is the result of an effort to
furnish a plain, simple statement of the
chief facts relating to the development
of the industries and resources, and the
advancement of the social and economic
conditions of the people, together with a
presentation of the topography of the
state. Numerous illustrations of build
ings, farm scenery, parks, lakes, bluff
lands, etc, impress the reader with the
thought that Nebraska is rich with nat
ural scenery and substantial buildings.
Following are some of the facts men
tioned about Platte county: "Date of
organization, 1858. Population, 17,747.
Area 682 square miles. Miles of railway
97.16. Prices of land per acre, best tilla
ble land $50 to S65. Fair tillable land
$30 to $45. Hay land $45 to $50. Pas
ture land $30 to $35. Ninety-five per
cent of the surface land is tillable. The
county has a large area well adapted to
irrigation. Good water abundant. About
1,000 acres are devoted to the culture of
sugar beets, and vegetables common to
the latitude flourish. The trees best
adapted to the county being maple, ash,
black walnut, box elder, elm, Cottonwood
and willow. Platte and Pierce counties
together produce nearly one-third of the
cheese made on farms in the state. The
value of land has increased 55 per cent
since 1897 and about 15 per cent of the
whole number of farms have been sold
within the last eighteen months. The
value of live stock in 1900 was $2,43268
and of products not fed to live stock in
1899 $2,74288." Truly a very fine show
ing for old Platte.
Democratic leaders like Chairman
Griggs and Representative Clayton of
Alabama, are now praising Speaker Hen
derson as a man too honest to be other
than he seems. Congressman Clayton
says he feels like giving the Speaker a
vote of thanks for declaring that he is
not in accord with the false pretenses of
some of his party associates who are pre
tending to occupy the democratic posi
tion in favor of tariff revision.
Speaker Henderson is no doubt very
serious about his withdrawal from the
congressional campaign but the solici
tude of Mr. Clayton will appeal to his
sense of humor and show him the funny
side of the situation. There are many
republicans who favor some revision of
the tariff but they insist on this being
done on the lines of protection. The
democrats are opposed to the protection
principle and declare for free trade in
their campaign book. Next we may ex
pect to bear from our democratic friends
that the republicans have stolen their
old battered free silver mask of their
already tarnished anti-imperialist ban
ner. The democratic managers are at
least more amusing in this campaign
than they have been in the past, if not
so senoaa and energetic.
Edgar Howard of the Columbus Tel
egram is trying to inject the Boer issue
into the congressional campaign in this
district. He says that once on a time,
while making a speech at Columbus
someone asked McCarthy how he stood
on the Boerqaeation, and that he replied
that he was not diecassing that question,
and was in no way responsible for the
trouble between England and the Boers.
And in consequence thereof Howard says
that McCarthy is not worthy to be elect
ed to congress. A few years ago, How
ard said that Holoomb was not a suitable
man to elect to any office and yet sup
ported him for supreme judge "For the
party's sake." Hence the Leader rises
on its hind legs and proclaims that How
ard is not a suitable man to advise any
man how to vote, and that his ravings
deserve what they get, the horse laugh.
H. Thompson's railroad nam in
mu an unexplained mystery. He insists
that it was not given for any legal aer
vices, Decause in all the years he has
practiced law he has never been employ
ed by a railroad corporation. It is not
a reward for official favor because he has
never held office. The only possible ex
planation is that it was given upon the
suspicion that he might bold office some
time, in which case his friendship would
be worth having. So long as Mr. Thomp
son remains mate we must be pruned
for accepting this solution of the prob

Fusion Sham Reform as Found
on the Records.
MICKEY TALKS TO STUDENTS.
Tha Republican State Officers Shaw
Good Records Institutions Care
fully and Economically Managed.
Tha State Treasury in Comparison.
Lincoln, Oct 21. Nebraska, with
her free schools and fertile soil, one
of the most productive states In the
union, noted for having tha smallest
per cent of Illiteracy of any state In
the union, is compelled to cany a bur
den of $2,000,000 of debt In their
platform the fusionists charge this
debt to Republican misrule. Let us
refer to the records and place the In
debtedness of the state where it justly
belongs. From Jan. L 1899, to Jan.
1, 1901, or the last two years of fusion
rule in Nebraska the debt was In
creased over $435,534.93, or within
$65,000 of beingone-fourthof the entire
Indebtedness of the state. A platform
promise of revenue reform, coming
from a party noted for its reckless
extravagance of money should have
but' little influence with the voters of
Nebraska, The record of the present
state officials, noted for economy,
stands out in bold contrast with the
record of extravagance made by the
fusionists. Under the fusion rule almost-
every department was con
fronted with a Urge deficiency long
before the commissions of the treas
ury looters expired.
It is years since Nebraska has had
such an able, honest and business like
administration of Its affairs as It has
had for the past two years by the
present Republican officials, who are
asking re-election. In fact In not a
single office is there a deficiency and
in many of them money appropriated
will be turned back into the treasury
when the new appropriations become
available. Such a record was never
before heard of in Nebraska, such econ
omy was never before practiced. This
record for economy should meet a
rousing indorsement at the polls.
The State Institutions.
At the state institutions there has
been absolutely no friction. The in
mates have been cared for with the
same kindness and patience as though
they were directly In charge of pa
rents. No father or mother has felt
called upon to make complaint to high
er authority than those directly in
charge of the institutions, but on the
contrary letters of commendation are
being constantly received. The In
mates are fed the same wholesome
food that is provided for the officials
and employes, and everything possible
is done that will promote the health
and happiness of the inmates the un
fortunate wards of the state. Such a
record stands out In marked contrast
to the extravagant management and
shameful mistreatment of the inmates
by the last fusion administration when
the institutions seemed always In a
state of turmoil and where the In
mates of many of them were com
pelled to eat food absolutely unfit for
the human body, while the officials,
their families and the employes were
living on the best that money could
buy and at the expense of the state.
The State Treasury.
The taxpayers have come to regard
the state treasury as the exponent
of the party in power, they have been
taught by experience to look with
considerable interest after the man
ner in which their funds are being
handled. State Treasurer Meserve
was the fusion ideal, but here is a
comparison of the records made by
Meserve and the present state treas
urer. Which has best guarded your
interest, the fusionists with Meserve
or the Republicans with Stuefer?

Mickey on Record.
J. H. Mickey delivered the following
address at the State university last
week, which speaks for itself. Mr.
Mickey spoke as follows:
"Dean Davis, Members of the Fac
ulty and Students of the University
of Nebraska-: I am truly glad to be
with you at this convocation hour. 1
am grateful to Chancellor Andrews foi
his very kind Invitation to meet with
you and address you, the faculty and
students of this great university.
"The work of this university Is of
the greatest importance to the devel
opment of this commonwealth. Thirty-four
years ago it was my privilege
to become a citizen of our state. My
homestead entry was the first business
transacted in the Lincoln United
States land office. Thirty-four yean
ago, our state was admitted Into the
anion. I am gratned to be in touch
with and to share with others the ben
efits and blessings of the high stand
ard of education we have reached in
the thirty-five years of statehood.
"Nebraska has been liberal in her
appropriations for this university.
Her liberality in these appropriations
must continue commensurate with
twentieth century demands. Nebras
ka measured by her financial re
sources, is excelled by no other state
In the liberality of her appropriations
for higher education. This splendid
record must be maintained. The
money appropriated and with pru
dence expended for this university is
not extravagance. It is commonsense
economy for the general welfare of
the people. This also applies with
equal force to the state normal school
at Peru, as well as to every public
institution in the state. While the
state must be wisely liberal in Its ap
propriations and prudent In its ex
pendltures for public Institutions, It
must not discourage private enter
prise fraught with public good. There
are private and parochial schools,
academies, colleges and universities
In this great commonwealth, which
the state should encourage, not by
public taxation or appropriations, but
by the good will of the public In wish
ing them God speed. I am quite Bare
I voice the sentiments and -views of
yoar honorable and worthy chancellor
and this great university, when I say
all these are essential to the foodrdtr
Isenship of our great and growing
"Haying Jived the .greater jayfcgg
my lire on tne farm, permit me to say
that I regard the work of the agricul
tural department of this and other
state universities of equal importance
with other departments. Tha farm
and the interests connected therewith
feed the world. The rapid increase
of population will in the future make
greater demands for food to sustain
life and the comfort of the teeming
millions than the paat has ever re
quired. What could methods and skill
In farming used fifty years, ago do
now to supply the needs of the In
creased population? They would fail
The demand of our day is for as much
brain power and Intelligence on the
farm, the raising of stock and 'the
handling of these vast interests as la
any other avocation of life."
Hold Them to Their Record.
No matter how hard the fusionists
may try to veer away from the issues
of the campaign on the state ticket,
they will be tried at the ballot box oa
It so happens that one of the princi
pal issues Is the record of the last
fusion administration. That Is some
thug the fusionists would like very
much to turn their backs on, and for
the reason that it is a record of incom
petency, dishonesty and nepotism
such as would make the expert plun
derers of Tammany Hall turn pale
Here Is the record in part and It Is
no wonder that fusion politicians
should want to keep the people's at
tention from it:
Two hundred and twenty-seven rela
tives and friends of fusion officials and
leaders given bed and-board and often
clothing In the state Institutions at
the state's expense.
The entire appropriation expended
and unpaid bills amounting to $149,000.
Pigs bought from "Tour Uncle
Jake" Wolfe by the fusion superin
tendent of the hospital for the Insane
at Lincoln out of state funds at $124
A substitute hired for an Incompet
ent physician at the soldiers' home at
Grand Island and money paid him
clandestinely from the drug fund.
Laces, linens and fancy underwear
purchased for the daughters and
daughters-in-law of the commandant
of the soldiers' home at Milford and
charged as groceries to the stele.
More than $1,500 worth of timber
cut from the state land at Milford and
the money embezzled.
Private house rent and office rent
paid in groceries stolen from the state
by a fusion physician at the soldiers'

Bogus clothing and butter deals in

of more than $15,000.

Institute at Beatrice and the money
A man appointed superintendent of
the fish hatchery at South Bend who
accentuated his Incompetency and ut
ter unfitness by evicting the finny In
habitants of the aquarium through
the medium of exotic vegetation.
This Is only part of the very bad
and very vulnerable records of the fu
sion administration, but it is enough
to cause even fusionists to stop and
reflect before they undertake to vote
this same element of treasury looters
back Into power.
The last fusion administration went
Into office on the promise of honesty
and economy. If they didn't keep the
promise it was because it was not
worth keeping. They kept everything
else they got their hands on and if
they let that promise go it was he
cause It was a liability Instead of an
asset. Seriously speaking, the return of
the fusionists to power would be a
public misfortune. To again place
them in position where they could
loot the treasury, prey upon public
Interests and make lodging houses out
of state institutions for a multitude of
political hangers-on, to the shameful
neglect of the unfortunate Inmates,
would be to exercise the right of
franchise to public detriment
A Remarkable Spectacle.
If the fusionists overlooked any
thing during the Poynter administra
tion it was because it was invisible
to eyes that were keen and beyond
reach of appetites that were raven
ous. In one of the congressional districts
one of their number was elected to
congress. He celebrated the event by
moving his family into a state insti
tution that happened to be located
in his district When tie went to
Washington his family remained at
the institution and was kept at the
state's expense during his term. When
he returned from congress, he made
his home at the institution with Ids
family. Finally sickness overtook him
and the very remarkable spectacle
was -presented of a member', of con
gress being buried from a state insti
tution. This story is recited merely
to illustrate to what extent, the fusion
ists while they were in power1 foraged
on the taxpayers..

Eat up a man's confidence. The
poorly dressed man is afraid to pasa
ahead it brings his clothes into
prominence, and this makes him un
comfortable. He usually gets ready-to-wear
clothing. Sometimes it fits
him and sometimes it doesn't. It
gets worn and shabby, and still be is
compelled to wear it. For about the
price of ready-made clothes we could
have made him an elegant salt, per
fect fit, style and finish. A full line
