The big trans-continental railroads,
the'promoters of the Nicaragua route
and the enemies of President Roose
velt in the republican party will unite
with the democrats during the present
session of congress to retard the build
ingof the canal. Some of them will
contend for a sea level as opposed to
the lock system and others will
attack the work thus far accomplished.
But the ditch will be dug.
Supervisor Kiernan dictated
the resolution; Supervisor Swanson
signed it, Supervisor Goetz
made a speech in favor of it
and voted for it and Ed Hoare knew
nothing about the whole transaction
until he read it in the Journal. Still
the editor of the Telegram insists that
Swanson and Ed Hoare are the only
fellows he referred to as "political
shysters." But we won't say another
word about it if he will hand over
that "tainted hundred" according to
The democrats in Colfax county
don't want to lead John Van Housen
to another Waterloo so they want a
Platte county man to try his chances
with Hugh Hughes the next time.
The Colfax democrats will learn just
one thing by such a program and
that is that it was not traitorous dem
ocrats but Hughes' personal popular
ity in Platte county that elected him.
The story will be repeated just the
same with a Platte county democrat
in the field, only more so for Platte
county is 150 nearer a republican
county than it was one year ago.
It is pretty bitter medicine for
Marshal Matthews. He was simply
the agent of Judge Munger m and he
probably carried out the decree as the
court intended. The court evidently
did not intend to punish Bartlett
Richards for the illegal fencing of
government land any more than
Bartlett Richards intends to tear
down his fences after the government
officers are out of sight. However,
the lesson will have a salutary effect.
A strict enforcement of the anti-fencing
statute in western Nebraska will
soon prove the absurdity of the sta
tute as well as the homestead law
which was designed to populate and
improve the country and lead to
some saner legislation which will
place this valuable grazing
the hands of actual owners.
President Roosevelt will win out in
his rate-making program. The rail
roads have spent their thousands in
vain ill an attempt to educate public
opinion to their point of view. Even
their cheap attempt to turn the tide
with walking delegates of employees
frightened into action by threats of
lower wages will fail. The President
has outgeneralled them. He did it
all in his triumphal southern tour.
Was it right for him to hammer the
republican senators of the north into
submission by seeking re-enforcements
in the enemy's country in the
south? Why not? Is he not presi
dent of the whole people? If rate re
gulation is what the whole people
needs, why should not the President
get it outside the republican party, if
members of that party block the way?
By his adroit generalship he has also
saved the republican party. For had
the eastern republican senators suc
ceeded in blocking his rate program,
they would have been the means of
making the next congress democratic.
As it is, the next congress will be
more strongly republican than ever
and k will be made up of Roosevelt
The editor of the Telegram suggests
an investigation of the regents of the
university. Good. Then .let the
same investigating committee come to
Plattejcounty and figure nphow much
the Telegram has received from illegal
fees and fraudulent contracts during
the last five years.
THE IOWA EXAMPLE.
Why is it that you find an Iowa
man prominent among the leaders in
every department of our national
government? Simply because the
people of Iowa for years have had the
good sense to elect their strongest
men to office and to keep them there
long enough to do them effiective ser
vice. Nebraska has just a3 good men,
but the people of Nebraska have not
displayed the same good sense either
in selecting their strongest men or in
retaining in office men who have
proved their strength. It is time we
were waking up. And the people in
the Third Congressional District will
soon have opportunity to give proof
of such an awakening. Congress
man McCarthy is recognized as one of
the solidest, hardest working, most
conscientious most promising among
the new men on the floor of the House.
His four years of service qualify him
to do more for his district and state
than any new man could do. He has
done well. He has always been at
his post of duty. He is in sympathy
with President Roosevelt from top to
toe. He is for Roosevelt's rate regu
lation program and stands with the
President on the Panama canal pro
position. It is to be hoped that the
people of the Third will follow Iowa's
example just once and give J. J. Mo
Carthy a unanimous endorsement for
a third term.
Nebraska would do well also to
imitate Iowa in the selection of her
senators. When has Nebraska had an
Allison or a Dolliver in the United
States senate? Only two in the last
twenty years have attained to nation
al prominence, and they were not
permitted to retain their seats long
enough to become thoroughly useful
to the state. A few years ago there
was some excuse for this state of
affairs for the people themselves had
little voice in the naming of senators.
But with the inauguration in this
state of the plan of nominating sena
tors by convention, the people are to
blame if they do not name men of
ability, moral courage and strength of
character to this high office. The
roan named to succeed Senator Mil
lard should be a man able enough
broad enough with courage enough to
serve the whole people of the state of
Nebraska, including not excluding,
the railroads and other corporations;
a man who has the will and the pow
er to add strength to the presidents arm

tion and the complex problems grow

Under Southern Skies.
It has been said by those who have
made a careful study of dramatic
literature that no play can make a po
pular success .that has not a good love
story at its very foundation. Drama
tists have found this so true, that
wbateveer themes may appeal to their
artistic sense as novel or instructive
material for the basis of a play, it is
put aside as hot likely to meet the
taste of the majority of theatregoers
and some variation of the old but
never worn out theme of love is again
and again written for that public
which is always demanding it. It is,
no doubt, the strength, and interest
of the love story in "Under Southern
Skies" that has given it its fifth year
ox uinterrvpiea auooess, playing CO
crowded houses wherever it has ap
peared... The strong story showing
ths broken life and hearts of a man
and n woman, and the almost wrecked
happilnem of a young girl has never
failed to bold an audience fascinated
and deeply interested from the open
ing of the play to the fall of the final
Matinee afternoon at 3 :00 p. m.

"Under Southern Skies" is now in its
fifth successful season and has yet only
been seen in a comparatively small por

cities. The increased enthusiasm with
which the play is received on its third
