The reupblioaa convention that is

will this convention do? Will it act
on the assumption that the republicans
in Platte county are in a hopeless min

not be sacrificed for these nominations
or will it nominate itscleanest.Btrong-

Wall street gold directs the vote.
Platte coanty has a 915000 debt that
pleads eloquently for a change in the
couaty administration. A good place
to begin the reform is in the office of
the coanty attorney.
Republicans, it is up to you I The
Journal is with you, if yon mean bus
iness. But if you put np straw candi
dates, as an excuse for you to vote for
democrats, the Journal will not raise
a finger for their election. On the
other hand if a clean strong candidate
is nominated, and any republican is
found working aginst him, that re
publican will not only be openly ex
posed by this paper, bat openly oppos
ed ahould he afterward seek a nomin
ation for office.
This is no time for mincing words.
Platte coanty republicans must have
first, organization; second, harmony;
aad third, enthusiasm, if they wonld
win. And we believe that the repub
licans of Platte coanty will rise to
the occasion, nominate clean, strong
men at the couaty convention and all
join hands to redeem the county.
Platte county tax-payers have bad
to dig np the largest amount the law
would permit during the last two
years, to pay their county taxes. And
that is not all. The county adminis
tration his exceeded the limit of the
law and placed aa additional burden
of nearly $150,00 on the. shoulders of
these same taxpayers, to pay the ex
penses of a democratic county ad
ministration. Democrats, like republicans pay taxes
and they are equally interested in
leaning the reason for this $ir,000 de
ficit in the county treasury.
The Journal repeats 'the charge that
this debt is due either to the defects
in the old revenue law or to the ex
travagance of Platte county super
If due to the former cause, demo
crats who waat the county on a debt-
payiag basis, will be forced tc vote for

The Telegram still refers to "Onr
beloved Bryan. " Is there another in
the state who yet cherishes this ten
der affection for tho silver-tongued,
gold-standard advocate? Has Mr.
Bryan ever asked anything from the
democrats or populists of Nebraska
that has not been granted him ? Have
these two parties ever forsaken this
plutocratic gentleman when he was
pleading his own interests and prom
ising deathless allegiance to the
cause? These two parties which are
as unlike as day and night the ultra
conservative and the ultra-radical
have they not sacrificed their respec
tive principles aad tied up with each
other year after year, solely for the
sake of Bryan and Bryan's personal
advancement? Nobody can deny it.
Ia return for this self-sacrificing
suppoit, what does Mr. Bryan do
when the crucial moment arrives?
How does he regard his deliberate and
solemn promise that never under any
eircuaastances would his vote be given
to a smaa who would use the influence
of the executive to fasten the gold
standard upon the American people?
He swallows a gold candidate aad
platform, tail .and hide. Thas does

Bryan's "First Battle" (page 427.)
Mr. Watson's comment is not start
lingly new, bnt it comes from a new
source. Ho was ono of tho original
populists and stands almost alone
among the membeis of that party as
a man who has always fought for
principle, regardless of immediate
party success. No populist will fail
to heed the words of Tom Watson.

1 posed in bim.
A railroad wreck, a menanrio turn
ed loose, a Joseph's coat, a pied case
of type tho English language utterly
fails to fnrmsh any metaphor which
will even faintly illustrate the pro
sent condition of tho once proud, con
siatent.conservative democratic party.
Somehow, one is irresistibly re
minded of Bill Nye's famous work,
"Forty Liars and Other Lies."
Talk about the democratic party
favoring government ownership ! Have
you never read history? Has not the
party of Jefferson and Jackson always
been against centralization of power,
in whatever form? Why did this
party resist tho national bank and the
regulation of interstate commerce liy
congress, but for the- fear of govern
ment encroachment on the racred
rights of the states? Why floes Bryan
favor state ownership of railroads and
oppose government ownership? Be
cause he is still a disciple of Jefferson
in many things. Why docs McKillip
favor government ownership and not
state ownership? Either because ho is
more populist than democrat or because
he is willing to pay tho price of in
consistency for a few votes. The re
publican party and not the statos'
rights party is the ono that will favor
government ownership of railroads
when the proper time como.
The same democrats who waut the
state to own the railroads, wanted
the republican state board to assess
them at $70,000,000. Would yon advise
the tax-payers of Nebraska to buy the
railroads at that figure? Bonds issued
for $70,000,000. Well, after all. that
is in line with democratic policy.
Interest on these bonds at 4 per cent
would be only $2,800,000 nunallv.
Besidep, the railroads would have no
taxes to p-y. And onr constitution
limits the state to $100,000 indebted
ness. And yet the democratic party
stauds for consitutional limitations!
O muse, inspire us with a poom on

-I DEMOCRATIC, dPINlON. '
. Tho New York Sub is a desaeoratio
paper, but one that is always inde
pendent and is not controlled by Wall
Streot. This paper has published an
editorial article giving the reasons
why it will support Roosevelt and
Fairbanks. That its argument may
be fully apprciated. we reprint the
Sun's article :
"The campaign ia now on. Both
parties and both candieaUes have spok
en. On the ono side, a coawervaiiv
party, with a radically inclined and
erstwhile too strenuous candidate for
president, and behind him for the
vice-presidency a man of undoubted
capacity, sound opinions and mental
and physical promise of eadeuranoe.
Ou the other side a radical party,
with an iufinite capacity for mischief
and a stupendous reccrd of mishcief
actually accomplished, present's for
president a conservatively inclined
candidate of irreproachable character
and attractive personal accomplish
ments; and for vice-president one
whoso extreme ago is tho sole but
sufficient reason for apprehension in
enso of his succession to the presi
dency. Such is tho choice before the inde
pendent voters, and it is the independ
ent voter who will decide this elec
tion. He cannot take Judge Parker
on the repablican platform and record.
He cannot reject Mr. Roosevelt with
out beckoning to the distant Huns;
without helping to open the gates of
power to political forces of
ed destructive potentiality. It
better to maintain unbroken the wall
of defense which the first election of
Two things might have happened to
make the choice of 1904 a choice be
tween individuals rather thau be
tween parties standing on their re
siiectiva records. Neither of the two
things has happened. The first oppor
tunity was deliberately avoided by
the compromising tricksters at St.Loa
if;. The second was deliberately
thrown away at Rosemonnt yesterday.
Barring Judge Parker's gold telegram
of l'.KU. offsetting m some degree his
two free silver votes for Bryan in
1SW. and 1900, and barring a politic
anti -second-term pledge, which might
have been made perhaps more grace
fully in an inaugrual address after
election, nothing has come from Judge
Parker's lips or pen to indicate that
he tossesses a single political idea
marking bim as a statesman of inde
pendent initiative, of courage super
ior to the St. Louis brand, of stature
to command and lead. With the
two exceptions noted, he is aa echo
of the convention and naught beside,
lie is yet the unknown quantity that
ho was throughout the preliminary
period of silence prescribed by judi
cial dignity. Instead of rising above
the platform, Jndge Parker has craw
led pretty ignominiously beneath it,
in our reluctantly expressed opinion.
He himself has decreed that the
choice of the independents shall be
one of parties and records and prin
ciples rather than of men.
To stute the Sun's position and its
reasons therefor requires no meta
physical subtlety of explanation. The
main consideration is as broad as the
nation's interests. As the case is now
made np, we prefer the impulsive

its criminal follies, and tasted yester

Loch Doon his jlae, became entangled,
and, at lengtaC "loetag all patience, I
vented an oath." The man In the
boat, who was precentor in the kirk,
reproved him, "which drew my atten

years of age, I had never before been
betrayed into iatemperate speech of
such a kind, thus making me more
fully aware than before of the irrita
bility produced by my nervous disorder."

A friend of mine was prevented
from going to India on account of
nalMag a letter without a postage
stamp on it The other day at the
nostoaTsce, while investigating this
subject, I was shown letter after let
ter containing bills, coin and money
orders, wnlch could not be delivered
either to the addressee or the sender.
It Is enough to take one's breath
away to think for one minute about
the amount of trouble caused by un
delivered letters. I was shown a reg
istered letter, ready to be sent to the
dead letter office, which bad been to
Sweden and returned to Chicago, but
the party sending it bad moved with
out leaving his address. The letter
was fat and probably full of bills.

Three Old Saws,
If the world seems cold to you,
Kindle fires to warm it!
Iet their comfort hide from view
Waiters that deform It.
Hearts as frosen aa your own
To that radiance gather:
Tou will soon forget to moan.
"Ah! the cheerless weather''
If the world's a wilderness.
Go. build bousea la It!
Will It help your loneliness
On the alodi to din it?
Raise a but. hbwever slight;
Weeds and brambles smother;
And to roof and meal invite
Some forlorner brother.
If the world's a. vale of tears.
Smile, till rainbows span it!
Breath the love that life endears,
Clear of clouds to faa it!
Of your gladness lend a gleam
uaia sows uu aauver;
taeas how Sorrow's stream
Blends with Hope's brightrlver!
Why I Hope.
I wish more of my experiences had
been real experiments in place of
blunders. But a German friend told
me when we stopped making blun
ders we stopped growing, and that en
couraged me a little Earl M. Piatt.
