Will the democratic candidates for

Do democrats believe in economy
in county as well as state government?
If they do, do they consider it econ
omy to pay twice as mach for certain
work as is necessary?
Now is the time for caadidates to de
clare themselves. The people of Platte
county who pay the taxes want to
know a few thiags about how their
money is expended. The democratic
court boase ring is oa the defensive.
Whenever one party or, as in this
case, one faction of one party is in
complete control of a municipal or
county government for a long term of
years, the same condition of affairs
invariably comes about. They band
themselves together for matual protec
tion. They become a "ring" sach as
the country has seeu exposed in New
York, Philadelphia and St. Louis.
When taxpayers are paying the
freight, the harden falls upon all alike.
The just and the nnjast contribute
their share without regard to their
politic". It is just as much to the
interest of the democratic voter as it
is to the interest of the republican
voter that we should have economy
in county government.
If the democratic county board has
been paying more for certain services
than was necessary, and more than it
would have cost if bids had been ask
ed they have been economical? If they
have been paying even more than the
law allows them to pay, have they
regarded their oath of office ? Do they
deserve re-election? Should they not
be compelled to put it back?
There is nothing deep or complicated
aboat these questions. They.4can be
answered withoat any particular
mental exertion, though possibly some
moral effort might be required.
The Journal has never said any
thing about a political opponent that
ic has had to take back, and it does
not intend to. If in the next few days
we publish any facts and figures from
the county records, they will be saoh
as can be verified by any man who can
read. Since, as we have said, the
burden of extravagant and unlawful
expenditures falls upon aU citizens
alike, the matter can hardly be called
TELL T1IE TRUTH.
If P. E. McKiUip would take the
voters of the third district into his
confidence and teU them honestly his
position on the three platforms which
he is trying to cover, he would make
a pablio declaration something Hike
the following: "My foremost desire
is to go to Congress. That is why
my friends and I worked for f asion.
I really have no pronounced view on
the tariff or the money question or
the trust question. Of course, if
elected I wiU vote with the democrats
against every measure for tariff re
vision or trust regulation or reciproc
ity urged by President Roosevelt.
And if Parker should be elected I
would of course vote with the demo
crats for another Cleveland tariff wiU
although I know the land I now own
would not now be worth half its pres
ent value had the Cleveland tariff re
mained in force. To be honest, I do
not believe in free silver and I am
talking about government ownership
of railroads just to attract the popu
list vote. Of course I know that there
is not a ghost of a chance of passing
a bill for government ownership
through Congress, no more than 1
would have of consolidating all the
mercantile establishments in heaven.
I have not read much history but I
know that the republican party has
the only real solution of the railroad
question, and that is by extending the
power of the interstate commerce com
mission. Bat I must not favor that
policy for Roosevelt favors that policy,
and besides, the railroads that are
famishing money for the democratic
campaign would not contribute money
if we aspirants for congressional hon
ors ahoald talk about the interstate
commerce commission, through which
body alone the railroads can be con
trolled. In short, in order to get
votes, I must promise to do every
thing that everybody wants in order
to defeat that man McCarthy who has
became very strong in the third dis
trict. Everybody knows that McCarthy
stands squarely with Roosevelt for
tariff revision, when revision is neces
sary; for strict enforcement of the
anti-trust laws: and for the rapid
extension of rural free delivery, the
system inaugurated by the repablicaa
party, a system that has added mill
ions of dollars to the value of Ne
braska farms, and done more to raise
the standards of rural life than all
other legislation combined for the last
I realize that if elected on a demo
cratic ticket, I could do nothing to
improve your condition. But friends,
really I do not believe there will be
enough, democrats in Congress to hurt
yoa. Therefore I ask yoa to vote for
me. I am a citizen of Platte county.
I have prospered nnder republican
times until I have banks and stores
galore. My success has made me
ambitious for greater honors. And
my republican friends, I am goiag to
spead $10,000 whioh I made under re
publican administrations, to get your
votes. Don't ask me to eaplain how
I can be honest and ran on three plat
forms I'm a "good fellow", that's
all, and I want your votes."
Ton are a "good fellow", brother
McKillip, but yoa can't get 'em.

aware, J. J. Sullivan is the most able
aad treated member of the democratic
party in this section of the state.
The above is a deliberate and straight
forward expression from him on this
mca discussed law.

There Is a 'great outbreak of populism in the eastern states

can who supports Parker . There many men of character and wealtli

4. Will yon explain how the proposed
Brady elevator bill ia aay better for
the farmer than the Ramsay bill
which was passed and for whioh the
f unionists in the legislature voted?
5. Do yoa take any stock ia this cry
about a grain trust ? Ton are a lawyer
and you know what a toast is. Is the
Nebraska grain trust incorporated?
Does it own any property? Has it
issued any stock? Do its officers re
ceive any salary?
C. Ton know that the railroads in
Nebraska are this year paying 70 per
oent more taxes than last year, while
other property is paying only C4 per
cent more than last year. Do yon
favor a return to the former basis of
taxation which will releive the rail
roads of this extra 16 per cent?
7. During the two years that Poyn
ter was governor oar state debt in
creased, in round numbers, 1343,000.
During the next foar years, nnder re
publican rule, our state debt increased
f 168,000. Would you say that this is
evidence of republican extravagaace?
8. The late increase of the state debt
under a republican adiministration is
just about equal to the extra appro
priations for buildings and improve
ments at our state university. Do you
disapprove of these appropriations?
Would yon veto similar bills for the
further up-building of the state uni
versity, if you should be eleoted?

The Lincoln Star calls attention to
the fact that the fusion members were
practically unanimous in voting for
every one of the appropriation bills
passed by the last legislature. These
appropriation bills represent aboat 90
per cent of the total amount expended
bv the legislature.
Many of these fasion members are
now candidates for re-election aad are
forced by their party position to
shout about the "extravagance" of
the hut legislature. It is just anoth
er example of the supreme inconsis
tency which must mark the campaign
position of every party whioh has no
real issue. The fact that more re
pablicans than fusionists voted for
those expenditures does not lessen the
fact that each fusion member did ail
in his power to make the appropri
ations. He voted for the bills. Angels
could do no more.
To the credit of these fusion mem
bers be it said that they supported
these bills, every one of which was
necessary and right. And to their
discredit be it said that now. as can
didates, they allow themselves to be
forced into standing on such a plat
form of Inconsistency anil self-oon-damnation
as this cry aboat extrava
gance. Truth is mighty.
Only foar weeks more of foolishness about
this election business, and then we can settle
down to straight football.
It's funny how these people who are opposed
to railroad passes are always harina passes throat
upon them. We wish to remark right now that
any bloated magnate is taking considerable
chances any time he offers this child a pass.
Mr. ItergB made a speech which before a
woman's club would without doubt have been
pronounced a corker. It was gentlemanly, free
from stories introducing profanity, aad guaran
teed strictly non-partisan. MoreoTer.it set forth
many of the principles of elementary political
science which nobody has ever dispated. As a
sewing circle orator, Mr. Merge can have our un
qualified endorsement any time he wants it.

"The ship of state." says Mr. Berg.
"But if you let this chance go by.
"Who knows bat I might up and die

"And leave yoa to your mournful fate."
Thus spake this modest candidate.
And when I heard that direful song.

Of mortals oa whose bones ere long
The birds of prey would loach;
And bless me. not a blooming one

THE ONE DANGER.
Representative Joseph W. Babcock,
chairman of the Republican Congres
sional campaign committee, points out
that a loss of fifteen congress districts
by the republicans will throw the
next House of Representatives to the
democrats. This is really a serious
situation. And those democrats who
want another Roosevelt administra
tion should not make the mistake of
voting for the democratic congression
al candidates in the belief that "Con
gress will be safely republican any
way." Voters, of what use would it
be to elect Roosevelt and then send
McKillip and fourteen other democrats
from republican districts to defeat
every single legislative act proposed
by the president? Roosevelt, McCar
