Wonder why Platte county repab-
lican did not insult the honecty of
Joseph Henggler with a "pass resolu
tion"? If you believe in free silver, don't
vote for Henggler. because Henggler
will not vote to send W. J. Bryan to
the United States senate.
If the republican convention coald
have named two stronger men than
Mr. Hobart and Mr. Henggler, wa
don't know who they wonld be.
A vote for Hobart is a vote to pro
tect yoar own interest in county mat
ters. A vote for Henggler is a vote
to keep in foroe a revenue law which
will provide running expenses. Judge
Sallivan said it was a good law, and

THE GRAIN TRUST.
"In the face of the fact that Ne
braska farmers have in recent years
been fleeced oat of millions of dollars
by the grain trust, vet here cornea
Baebe Schneider, president of trust,
ana injects himself into the campaign
as the real leader of the republican
machine. It would appear the part of
good politics for such an obnoxious
factor to keep in the dark during the
campaign, lest the republican can
didatta suffer from the burden of Bch
aederiam. But Reube la not worrying

Every democrat or populist elected to
membership in the legislature this
year will be solemnly pledged to vote
for a counterpart of the Brady bill,
which Schneider killed during the
closing days of the last legislature."
The Telegram's charges in the mat
ter of the "grain trust" and the
"Brady bill" are as far from the truth
as its statement that "there is not
deficifin the Platte county treasury
Here are the facta about the so-called
"grain trust" of which Mr. Sch
neider is president
was honored by an
presidency of the
is composed of several state associa
tions of grain dealers and of members
of some of the large oommfesion firms.
The chief purpose of this association
is the improvement of terminal mar
kets to enable grain dealers to pay the
highest possible price for grain.
This association, the very purpose
of whose organization is the improve
ment of the market for the fanner.
is called the "grain trust". And yet.
this "trust" has not a single dollar
invested. Its president does not draw
a cent in salary, and the Nebraska
Grain Dealers' Association is not now
a member of it. It is not incorporated.
It has power neither to issue a share
of stock nor to declare a dividend. It
can neither buy nor sell a bushel of
grain. In fact it lacks every single
essential of a "trust".
And yet the Telegram insists that
a "trust" with no existence has
" fleeced " the farmer out of millions
of dollars, and asks the intelligent
farmers of Platte county to vote for
democratic candidates because R. B.
Schneider, on account of his ability,
chances to be a member of the repub
lican national committee at the same
time that he is the unpaid presi
dent of an association organized for
the sole purpose of promoting the,
mutual welfare of farmers and grain
dealers, justthe same as the editorial
associations are organized to promote
the mutual welfare of newspaper pub
lishers and advertisers.
The Telegram asserts that the farm
ers of Nebraska will never be free
from thia imaginary trust until the
"Brady bill" is enacted in law. Here
are the facts about the "Brady hill."
Previous to the enactment of the
Elkins law by Roosevelt and a repub
lican congress, rebates and discrimin
ations were practiced by the railroads
in favor of large dealers, and the
small independent grain buyer and
farmer's elevators were given a choice
between "pooling" or quitting bus
iness. It was also complained that
farmers' elevator companies found
difficulty in getting railroads to grant
sites for elevators or to furnish cars
for the shipment of grain. While in
most cases too many elevators were
already on the ground, fairness de
manded that farmers should be given
the same facilities by the railroads for
operating elevators as were enjoyed
by other elevators and when the leg
islature assembled in VJO'i. democrats
and republicans 'alike were anxious
to go on record for "fair play".
Accordingly, a bill known as the
"Ramsey bill" was introduced in the
House and the "Brady bill" waa in
troduced in the Senate, both bills be
ing supported byf riends of the farmers'
elevator. The Ramsey bill became a
law. The only objection to the Ram
sey biU made by the friends of the
Brady biU at the time ot its passage
was the fear that it might be found
unconstitutional. They admitted, in
short, that it would be all right so
long as it remained alive on the statute
The Ramsay law is alive and in
full force today, guaranteeing "equal
facilities to all persons or associations
who desire to erect or operate ele
vators". Its constitutionality has
never been questioned and probably
never will be. It will be time to talk
for the Brady bill when its "counter
part", already on the statute books,
is foand unconstitutional.
Democrats all remember how Cleve
land and his attorney-general hid be
hind the imagined unconstitutionality
of tthe Sherman anti-trust law for
years, as an excuse for their failure
to enforoe it. They remember also,
how the democratic judges on the su
preme bench came within one vote of
foiling President Roosevelt in his
fearless enforcement of that law.
Democrats have memories, brother,
that is why so many of them are
straight repablioaas thia year.
Don't imagine for a moment that
the ghost, "unoonatitutionality",
whioh frightened Cleveland so badly,
will frighten sensible voters into a
support of democratic candidates for
the Nebraska legislature. They have
oome to look upon' ' anoonstitationalty '

editor of the Telegram, if he wishes
to retain the confidence of his readers,

tioa, mental ability ami knowledge of
the law to iaeara the tax-payers of

party to a legal action it will be rep
resented na ably aa the other aide may
be. Every civil cult in which the
county nttomey is eaamgad ia a matter
directly Bleating taw pesketcook of
every psapeilj owner smd taxpayer in
Pmtte county. Every criminal suit
ia which ha is oalled upon to not ia a
matter directly affecting the peace,
safety and sseisJ welfare of every ras
identof the eounty. What aaaa in
Platte county would fail to employ
the ablest attorney who ooald be
found, if the litigation in question
waa an affair of hia own private bus
iness, or one involving the protection
of hia own property and family? And
thia ia th? problem which oonfronta
every voter in Platte county when he
comes to vote for a county attorney.
He knowa not what moment the coun
ty's interest, in which he aa a tax
payer owns n part, may require a ca
pable and efficient representative in
the courts. The county ia already in
debt ; it cannot afford to pay oat big
attorney fees for "assisting" counseL
Every voter must recognize that
thia ia a simple, plain, business
proposition. National politics is
made the Une of distinction in
the nomination of local officials be
cause it is an establiahed and con
veninent custom. The county attor
ney of Platte oouaty has to do with
governmental policy the tariff, 'im
perialam, standing army, the dining
of negroes abeolately nothing a all.
But with the protection of Platte
county's flnaacial and social interests
the has everything to do. Upon him
will depend the enforcement of the
lawa of the state, not the enactment
of laws. He wUl not deal in economic
theories, but with common, everyday,
practical business matters matters
which appeal to the tax-payer in terms
of doUara and cents.
Mr. Hobart ia a man of high legal
attainmenta and unquestioned personal
character. Nothing will be said
against him because there is nothing
that can be said against him. The
county's legal business will be safe in
his hands. He will be elected asn
republican, but not on political issues,
Thia is a business proposition.
PJIOGRESS IN RUSSIA.
Cruelty is the one thing that dis
tinguishes the ancient and mediaeval
civilization from the modern. What
ever may be the tendency of the times
in matters of religions creeds, it ia
certain that man's inhumanity to man
is being tempered more and more
every year. The barbarous forms of
punishment which disgraced early
civilization have disappeared in en
lightened countries, and now the czar
of the Russias has abolished corporal
punishment in his domain. It ia true
that thia waa done while he waa under
the chastening influence of military
reverses and the softening influence
of th advent of his first-born for
girls don't count among royalty. Bat,
whatever the immediate cause, the
forward step has been made, and it can
hardly be retraced. And the civilized
world receivea the tidings with thanks
Americans have ever been in the
forefront of humanitarian progress. In
the struggle between Russia and Jap
an, Americans have almost univer
sally sympathized with Japan. In
the matter of Christianity and even of
national morality Russia ia in advance
of Japan. But the Japanese have been
generally regarded in thia country ae
a gentle, nrtiatio race whose short
comings were what we call moral ir
regularities aad whose barbarisms did
not take the form of savage cruelty.
Russia, on the other hand, though a
Christian nation and one of the so
called civilized nations, has long been
a blot upon the world's page of pro
gress by reason of the inhuman cruel
ties that have been practiced upon
criminal and political offenders.
Corporal punishment of ndnlts has
within the mat hundred yeara come to
be regarded in thia oountry aa a bar
barons practice. In the case of child
ren, it is still countenanced and prac
ticed by many in their own families,
and still permitted in our public
schools. It cannot be doubted that we
shall grow out of it in time, and it
is to be hoped that we may lead the
world in thia reform, as we have in
so many others.

Those who av. the Uttle bird fly
into the court house whsiew dating
the republican convention Inst Thurs
day and parch upon the buck of n
chair while it uttered notes of history
concerning the defaulting Platts coun
ty tresamrer, agree that the bird was
clothed in plumage of the blackest
hue. They declare ia fact that it be
longed to the same brood with those
crowa that have become rtniiiff to
Journal readers under the names of
"Coal Oil John" and "No County
Deficit." And remembering the
greedy voracity with whioh the editor
of the Telegram devoured the nest
fellows of this last unfortunate bird,
they are already trembling for its fate.
For this bird, which may be named
"BepubUcans stood Between," like
"Republicans Stood Between", is
knew its notes were false and it did
not took its aaditora ia the eye when it
uttered them. It knew that it would
have been impossible for nrepubUcan
bondsman to stand between Lynch and
the penitentiary even had he ao 'desir
ed. It knew that the sole resnonaibUity
for the failure of criminal proaecatioa
must ever stand on the debit side of
the democratic ledger against n demo
cratic board of aaperviaors and n dem
ocratic oounty attorney, whose plain
duty it was to permit neither demo
crat nor republican to stand between
n defaulter aad prisoa. Bat the poor
bird was hungry, and it was told that
the democrats ia Platte oounty hold
the string to the grain sack from
which it must get its food; and that
the democratic granary wiU continue
always to be the repository of that
sack. It waa told also that there was
only one key that would unlock the
door of this democratic granary and
that if that key ahould be lost the re
publicans would gain entrance to the
depository of golden grain. This key,
it was said, was distinguished from
the rest of the key ring by being
marked in deep plain letters "Mis
statement of fact. " The poor unfor
tunate bird used this key to open the
oourt house window last Thursday.
Bat the rspubUoan county convention
waa temporarily in possession of the
granary. And R. W. Hobart, seeing
the crow with the key, captured both,
delivered the key to the republican
convention and deUvered "Republi
cans Stood Between" to the Journal to
be fed to the editor of the Telegram
from the same trough from which he
cleaned up "Coal Oil John" and "No
Oounty Deficit." Here's hoping our

That the great combinations regard
Judge Parker as a"aafe"man for them
there is no reason to doubt. Tne St.
Louis platform is very pronounced in
its anti-trust declaration. It demands
a strict enforcement of existing stat
utes against the combinations and such
further legislation na may be necessary
to effectually suppress them. In his
speech of acceptance the candidate for
president made a tame reference to
the subject and expressed the opinion
that "the common law aa developed
affords a complete legal remedy against
monopolies". The candidate for vice
president did not refer to the matter
ia his speech of acceptance, but it ia
qaite well understood that being very
much identified with great corpor
ations railroads, banking and indus
trialhe does not sympathize with the
demands regarding them of St. Lonia
platform. He ia not anxious that the
existing laws shall be enforced and it
is not to be doubted that he concurs
in the opinion of Judge Parker that
no further anti-trust legislation ia
needed, that the pubUo can rely upon .
the common law for protection against
monopoly. There is not a reasonable
doubt that the managers of the demo
cratic campaign will appeal to WaU
etreet for aupport and that they will
get liberal contributions ,from that
quarter. The evidenoe ia ample that
they have carefnUy planned to do this
and it is safe to aay with-the full
acquiescence of the candidate. A abort
time ago the WaU 8treet Journal
stated that very oonfldent aaaertioaa
were made by local democratic politi
cians that there will be any amount of
Standard Oil money for Jadge Parker
aad said that the hatred of the men of
"high finance" for Roosevelt ia undi
minished and. indeed, rather refresh
ed by the hope of defeating him. It
may fairly be doubted whether one of
the great combinations, or so-cnUed
trasta, will contribute to the nampaiga,
but if all indications of the past few
montha are not mialeadiag the demo
crats will be Uberaily provided for

now devoting much space to testi
monials from prominent men in Lin

The World-Herald is making a fight
on Mickey that ia both disgusting
and harmless to its victim. By editor
ial and cartoon that paper is present
ing Governor Mickey as an overly
pious person. Some of the cartoons
in the World-HerW on this score
would be too boyish to appear in a
schoolboy sheet. Beyond its attempt
to ridicule the governor by making
burlesque of his Christianity no charge
is made against him. His nets as gov
ernor are not assailed. As he has been
in the office now for nearly two yean
his official acts must be pretty satis
factory to the pnblio if hia enemiea
must resort to ridiculing hia chriat-
ianity in order to find something to
aay against htm. Bat this sort of
opposition ia made all the more harm
leas because Berge, the fusion oppon
ent to him, is also a man of the same
rnligioua faith. If being a chriatinn
la auffioient grounds for defeating
Mickey it ought to be enough to de
feat Berge. The World-Herald's dab
is a boomerang. Ord Quiz.
