The Rockefeller Temple is at a
standstill. It is still shy Howard's
"tainted hundred."
M. P. Harrington says in his let
ter to Edgar Howard:
"The president's program would
have about as much influence on the
railroads of the United States as you
would have upon the Missouri river
by trying to drain it dry with a buc
ket" If the Missouri river could be
made to resemble a good fat printing
fund in Platte county Mr. Harring
ton's "public spirited" friend could
drain it dry with a teaspoon in the
time required by Supervisor Clother
to take an "official" nap.
P. J. Barron who for more than a
year was associated with the Journal,
has joined the editorial force of the
World-Herald, and the World-Herald
will have a strongor editorial page
as a result. Pete Barron couldn't
write anything but a republican politi
cal editorial to save his life, for he i. a
republican to the marrow. But it
is just as impossible for him to write
anything that isn't worth reading.
When it comes to brains, no editorial
chair in the state can boast more of
them than the chair held down by
our friend "Pete."
The people of Nebraska never ap
proached a Thanksgiving with more
to be thankful for. Never before
have the standards of life in the av
erage home been so high. Destitu
tion exists in few homes and then
only as a result of shiftlessness, mis
fortune or dissipation. The boys and
girls are not only warmly clad and
well fed, but with slight exception
they are enjoying the advantages of
excellent schools, most of them have
access to libraries in home, school or
Sunday school, and many of them en
joy the privilege of a musical educa
tion. As long as a majority of the
individual children of the country are
raised in comfortable, virtuous homes
and have access to the best books; the
commonwealth is safe. Therefore,
while rejoicing over the blessings of
unusual prosperity this Thanksgiving,
people should not forget that their
prosperity is a real advantage to
themselves and to society only in pro
portion as it is employed in home, in
school, in society, in church to elevate
the physical, moral, intellectual and
spiritual standards of the children
and young people.
The press and pulpit are busy these
days pointing out the frauds of the big
life insurance companies and railroad
companies, etcetera. And the result
will benefit society. But that benefit
will not come through a belief that all
the fraud and corruption and dishon
esty are to be found in the mahogany
furnished office of the railroad presi
dent or life insurance president. It is
right to criticise and punish the in
surance president who transfers insur
ancs company stocks to help a stock
holder to dodge his taxes. But such
criticism and punishment will not be
effective till the public conscience is
aroused to the point where it will
criticise and punish other individuals
who collectively dodge millions of
their assessment by depositing money
in banks and lying abouit to the as
sessor. It is right to punish the insur
ance officer who contributes the policy
holder's money to the political cam
paign fund. But the man in town
ship, county or state office who gains
possession of the people's money by
illegal or corrupt means and then con
tributes it to a campaign fund to re
elect himself is even more deserving
of punishment Let the good work go
on among big men in far away places.
But don't forget that real reform like
real charity must begin at home.

M. F. Harrington for Governor, P.
E. MeKillip for Congress from the
Thin! district, Edgar Howard for
some high ofiice, perhaps State Sena
tor, a newspaper at Fremont to help
elect them, and the "public owner
ship" pole to knock the pershnmons.
This is the democratic program an
nounced in the lat issue of the Tele
gram. Harrington writes to Howard and
compliments him for coming out
"squarely and without evasion or
dodging for the public ownership and
operation of railroads" ami "welcomes
to our ranks o able and honest a
public spirited citizen as Edgar
Howard." Tins recommendation is
intended to qualifv Howard for the
state .-enato. And in order that no i
man may have the temertiy to ques
tion the strength of this endorsement,
Howard hastens to feel ''compliment
ed by the approving words of such a
political economist as'M. F. Harring
ton" who, he declares, is "in the front
rank of students of the railroad ques
tion," which qualification is supposed
to fit him for gubernatorial honors
this year ami for the United State-
Senate, in 1J)0S, the date lixcd lor the
democratic millenium.
Then in another editorial the editor
of the Telegram brings out McKillip
for Congress and tells things about
dissension over the republican nomin
tion in the Third district and about
"Post office brigades" that the Al
mighty Father himself has not yet
learned which "dimension" is sup
posed to be able to elect McKillip.
As a corollary to these "big plans
of big people," the announcement
comes that the Telegram company
has invested its surplus in a great de
mocratic daily in Fremont in re
sponse to Harrington's appeal "to
help us to get the people to under
stand the little piece of 'two for a
cent' railroad regulation that the
President proposes?"
Thus reads the political program
of three you-tickle-me-and-I-tickle-you
statesmen. As a piece of political
humor it is excelled only by those
two little stories which have been
written in Platte county politics,
namely, "How Howard Saved the
Democracy of Platte County" and
"How Howard Resolved that Carrig
Should Surrender His Railroad Pass
with a short essay on How Carrig Re
solved Not to Do It."
