Madison County Reporter.
Did you notice the last Galley affi
davit in the Telegram renouncing the
Howard-Johannes mutilated affidavit
and the apology from the Telegram
editor for publishing a libel about
the editor of this paper? We accept
the apology and take off our hat to our
contemporary whose noble southern
blood always prompts him to do the
just and chivalrous thing. Anv
"bum" printer has the courage to sit
behind locked doors in his office and
call his contemporary a liar, but there
are "only a few of 'em left" who have
the courage when they are in the
wrong, publicly to acknowledge it as
the editor of the Telegram has done.
CARROLL D.E J 'ASS FUR SEX A TOR
Columbus will have a candidate for
United States Senator if the friends of
Col. Carroll D. Evans have their way.
A close personal friend of Dr.Evan
was interviewed by the editor of this
paper a few days ago relative to Dr.
Evans' candidacy, a subject concern
ing which the Doctor has refused to
talk for publication up to the present
time. This friend spoke in substance
'I have seen a number of letters
written to Dr. Evans by men
nent in political and military
Nebraska, urging him to announce
his candidacy and pledging their
support. Many of the Doctor's
friends at home are also urging him to
enter the race. During his twenty
years of residence in Columbus his
reputation as a surgeon has made
him known throughout the state. But
in spite of his busy professional life he
has kept in close touch with public
questions and his participation in local
affairs has always been on the side of
decency and good morals.
As a member of Governor
Mickey's staff he enjoys a wide ac
quaintance with the political leaders,
esccially among the members of the
National Guard to whom he has been
a loyal friend. Taking everything
into consideration, I see no reason
why Dr. Evans should not be a ctrong
candidate, however, I am not authori
zed to say at this time, that he will be

made' a discovery in Platte county
without parallel in political history.
He ha-- di-overed a "bo-s" in a po

The new jury law, which promises
to mix up legal procedure may be
justly censured in other respects. It
provides-, for instance, that the board
of canvassers of election returns shall
constitute a commission for the selec
tion of a list of 500 names from which
to impanel jurors. These names are
to be taken from the poll lists. Thus
it will be seen that an inducement is
ofl'ered for thevoter to absent himself
from the polls. It is almost univer
sally regarded as a nuisance to have
t) serve on juries. The voter who
stays away from the polls is certain to
escape the draft. The general com
plaint is of a lack of appreciation of
the privilege of franchise. Now best
to stimulate every man to the perfor
mance cf his duty in this respect is a
subject bothering the political and
sociological thinkers. It is unwise to
put a premium on non-participation in
political matters, as the new jury law
does. Fremont Tribune.

Without parallel in the hi-tory of
this republic, was Roosevelt's recent
triumphal tour of the southern state-.
The spontaneous expressions of love
and confidence with which the Presi
dent was met from Richmond to New
Orleans are significent of the break
ing of those lines which since slavery
days have set apart a "solid south.'

candidate for re-election tomorrow,
he would carry every state" south
