The candidates of the prohibition
party in Nebraska this year are: For
judge of the supreme court, George I.
Wright of York; for regents of the state

FOR CUBA AND OURSELVES
Congress Iim been called to meet in
extra session on Nov. 9 to consider the
reciprocity treaty with Cuba. The
treaty should be pat into effect prompt
ly. Thia set of jastice to Cubs snd our
selves hM been delsyed too long.
When we cut Cuba loose from Spain
ws did not do enough, either for her or
foronwelvea. We pat upon her freedom
the restrictions necessary to our safety.
Bat with thia entirely negative action
We refused to knit up with Cuba ths
great assimilating bonds of trade. We
refused to secure the happiness and at
tachment of her people by providing for
their material welfare. And strangest
of all, we refused toadd to our own pros
perity by aiding her to prosper.
Oar duty to Cuba and to ourselves is
the same m to the Philippines snd to
ourselves. It is the duty dictated by
that enlightened self-interest which
makes the American people, on the
whole, happier than the people of any
It ia the duty which abspss govera
meat polioy to the ead of general pros
perity m the beam of ths greatest bene
fits of civilization.
It ia time to do thia duty, for Cuba
aad for ourselves. Inter Ocean.

localities, it appears that this
