PUBLISHED WEDNESDAYS BY

We have recently listed several large ranches which will be cut up and sold in quarters or
tracts to suit purchaser. The low price at which these raches are listed enables us to
make the lowest prices that have been made in years on land similarly situated.

The trouble with that "tainted
hundred" is, 'taint paid yet
Teddy Roosevelt carried the city of
Columbus. So did Bill Newman.
We are willing to let Kiernan and
Goetz decide whether the Telegram

York, and Shure, Priest and New

Party organization in the future
must be the servant, not the master of
the people. This is the handwriting
on the wall, and woe to the part'
that cannot read it
We are not so much exercised
about those long winded "Rocke
feller roasts" in the Telegram as we
are about the failure of the editor of
the "reform sheet" to pay over the
"hundred" according to agreement.
Rev. Munro of the Columbus Con
gregational church preached a politi
cal sermon on the Sunday before
election in the course of which he
said, referring to political journals:
"They say it is bad journalism to
make specific charges of corruption
against public officials. On the con
trary it is bad journalism to cover up
the corrupt acts of public officials."
The editor of the Telegram is of
the opinion that John Galley is either
a "foul or a knave" because he re
nounced the Howard-Johannes muti
lated affidavit So were Kiernan and
Goetz and Swanson "political shy
sters" for voting to force Ernst and
Bender to "put it back." And that
reminds us that the ''Rockefeller
fund" is still shy that "tainted" hundred.
The Lincoln Journal, with a prac
tical turn of mind, suggests a better
remedy than licensing cats for the
purpose of protecting birds, as advo
cated by the Audubon society. It
suggests that ,the autocrats of fashion
issue a decree favoring the use of cat's
claws and heads for millinery orna
mentation instead of using stuffed
birds for that purpose. What do the
women of the country say to this?

The last legislature passed a bill
calling for an amendment to .the Ne
braska constitution providing for a
state railroad commission. , All the
strong features of the bill were amend
ed out; of it before it passed the senate
and it is to be hoped that the people
will have the good sense to turn it
down flat The people of Nebraska
will not stand for any more horse-play
along the line of railroad legislation.
They do not demand any radical
anti-railroad measures, but they will
insist on a; reasonable reduction of
local freight rates and on having a
state t: commission vested with.
poweain the state similar to those de
manded by President Roosevelt for
the Interstate Commerce Commission.
The question has passed the "rhetoric"
stage.. It is time to "do things."
Quurman W. P. Warner is entitled
to grtrt credit for the excellent show
ing he has made in the campaign
which has just closed. Mr. Warner
has Made no '-grand stand" plays, but
he has done a vast amount of system
atic work and as a result,republicanisni
in aavoffyear, has made a large gain
and tike committee comes through the
struggle with some money in its pock
et after cancelling a debt carried over J
from last vear. Mr. Warner did
things," and the republicans of Ne
braska will remember him. But Mr.
Warner and his able assistants on the
committee are not entitled to all the
credit for the big republican victory
in Nebraska. Judge Letton comes in
for a large share of the glory. His
strong personality, his reputation as a
jurist, his clean cut speech of accept
ance which echoed the Roosevelt sen
timent on every public question and
his dignified attitude throughout the
campaign inspired confidence and en
thusiasm which swept away all ob
stacles. Chairman Warner, as well
as the newly elected regents owe a
large part of the increased majorities
to Judge Letton.
It is the habit of many newspapers
to collect evidence against public offi
cials of the opposite party, save it up
till a few weeks before election, then
shoot it all off for. the single purpose
of electing the other fellows; and then
after election, to slobber over the
newly elected candidates and pledge
co-operation and support.
Such work is non-sense and tends to
weaken the diguity and influence of
"Publicity" is the great preventive
of public corruption and the best tonic
yet prescribed for public officials. But
like all other effective remedies, it
should be administered when the dis
ease first appears, and a daily appli
cation sometimes prevents the ap
pearance even of the symptoms.
This paper has no apology to offer
any candidate, either defeated or elec
ted, for anything ii has said or neg
lected to say during the past year.
The facts of official irregularity
brought to light through the columns
of this paper, are just as true today as
they were when made, and arc sup
ported by the same evidence. It
other similar evidences of irregularity
appear in the future, whether under
the present democratic officials or un
der the newly elected republican offi
cials, they will be published as soon
as they are discovered the same a
has been done in the past.
Public officials are always entitled
to the co-operation of the organs of
publicity, but that co-operation should
always mean "letting the public know
what the officials are doing," whether
the record is black or white.
This paper has been frequently
charged with "mud slinging" duriug
the last year, simply because it singled
out individual officials and published
the records they had made. If that
record had been white, it would not
have looked "muddy" to the public.
The officials in question were respon
sible for any coloring that might have
appeared. But if the Journal's course
has been one of "mud slinging," make
the most of it, for it will continue.
