THE FUTURE DEMOCRACY.
Not since the days of fusion have
the democrats of Nebraska displayed
so much activity. And a glance behind
the scenes shows the same political
leaders who betrayed the populist par
ty, murdered it to get the booty and
then buried the corpse whose foul odor
stood between them and their future
While there is not so much danger
to be feared from this democratic ac
tivity as there was from the fusion
movement, still republicans should not
be over-confident. It must be re
membered that organized wealth in
nation and state is against Roosevelt
and his principles and that it will join
hands with democracy in defeating
Let it not be forgotten that the re
publicans of the United States are
with Roosevelt and that those eastern
Senators bearing the republican label
who are blocking President Roosevelt
in his efforts for rate regulation and
free trade with the Phillipines are just
as far from being republicans as those
democratic senators whom they have
joined in an attempt to defeat Roose
veltism. Let it be remembered that the
democrats who charge that Roosevelt
has not gone far enough in the way of
reform and law enfo cement can only
win party victory by welcoming to
their councils those republicaus who
Roosevelt's vote in Nebraska two
years ago proves that a vast majority
of Nebraskans are Roosevelt republi
cans. Before this majority can be
changed the democrats will have to
offer something that smacks more of
Roosevelt than that which has been
given by republican administrations.
Will democrats maintain that rate
regulation is not sufficient and urge
that the state should pledge its na
tional representatives to the goverment
ownership theory? Then we can reply
that while they have been shouting
for a theory simply for effect, Presi
dent Roosevelt and a republican ad
ministration are already operating a
government-owned railway in Pan
ama and have laid the foundation for
government-owned railroads in both
the Philippines and Alaska.
Will Nebraska democrats maintain
that the republican party in Nebraska
is a railroad party? Then we can ask
these same men who are promising re
forms today in event of democratic
success, why, under similar promises in
the days of fusion success, they gave
Nebraska railroads the lowest assess
ment they have ever had, while they
themselves used as many free passes
as were ever used by a Nebraska Le
gislature. And we can point to the
fact that it was republicans who
doubled the assessment of railroads
under the new revenue law and it was
republican state officials who first
threw away their passes.
Will Nebraska democrats issist
that they mean what they say and
practice what their platforms preach?
Then we shall point not only to the
fusion record in Nebraska but to the
democratic record in Platte county,
the banner county of Nebraska de
mocracy. We will ask why Platte
county democrats "resolve" in .their
conventions against passes and then
nominate and support and elect men
wlw carry passes. We will.askwhy

they "resolve", against"graft"and then
turn out and defend the worst of
grafters in their own party.
If the democrats cannot show that
in nation, state and county where they
have been in power, they have not
given the public the worst of it, and
violated every pledge they made why
should they expect the public to
flock to their banner where the most
that they can promise is to out-Roosevelt
Roosevelt and when the only way
they can win is to gain anti-Roosevelt
support from the republican
While democracy has been preach
ing trust-busting, the republican par
ty .has been practicing it. While
democratic papers have been malign
ing Roosevelt for being elected by the
aid of life insurance companies and
the packing interests, he has been
busy urging the prosecution against
these corporations which has brought
out the evidence these same papers
are now using to discredit Roosevelt.
While democrats are giving wine
suppers and making goverment ow
nership speeches, a republican ad
ministration is gniding a government
owened train across the Isthmus of
Panama, carrying the supplies that
shall complete a waterway which will
reduce transcontinental railroad rates
and make the United States the first
commercial nation of the world.
Will Nebraska be given back to
democracy, or rather will republicans
by urging the "square deal" policy
which has so nearly brought Platte
county in to the republican fold, con
tinue to urge this policy not only till
republican party success is complete,
but till the square deal is realized in
every department of onr government?
Never has there been a time when
a young man conld be prouder to
call himself a republican; never a
time when every citizen should be
more glad to take off his coat and
fight for republican success under
the Roosevelt banner.
A SERIOUS WEAKNESS.
A very serious weakness in onr sys
tem of naming jurors was well illustrat
ed in the trial of the Monroe bank
robbers here last week.
A reward of $500 was offered for
the capture and conviction of the
criminals. The county she iff made
the capture, secured the conviction
and earned the reward.
But the sherrif also named the jury
which tried the last two prisoners. In
this fact there is no reflection upon the
honesty of the sheriff. He did what
the law commands him to do. When
the regular panel is exhausted, the
law requires the sheriff to make up a
jury from veniremen selected by him
self. In this particular case, the evi
dence was so strong that there could
exist no motive for corrupting a jury.
But the case illustrates the principle.
Suppose a similar case where the
guilt of the parties under charge is in
doubt, and where there is a sheriff
willing to sacrafice principle tor the
sake of the reward. It is clear that
the law places in his hands a weapon
to use corruptly for his own gain.
To safeguard the jury system this
provision of the law should be changed.
Either the sheriff should not be per
mitted to accept a reward for the per
formance of duty, or he should not be
permitted to name the veniremen.
WHEN DID IT QUALIFY?
There are two or three facts which
make the Telegram personal attack
on the editor of this paper last week
exceedingly humorous. First, the
''prominent republican" who was
kicked out of hiding in the tall grass
of the democratic back yard for the
particular occasion, used a more ob
jectionable term to express the same
idea than this paper has ever used.
Second, the democratic party used
the exact language in its platform
which was objected to in committee
at the republican city convention on
the ground that it was "improper'and
no "prominent" republican has been
keard to demand jthe exclusion from
the mail of-either the Journal or'
is offered to
for an v sub
the Telegram for printing the dem
ocratic platform. Third, the republi
can platform, as finally adopted was
written, every word of it, by the
"young man" who, the Telegram says
was "repudiated though not humi
liated" by his party. Fourth, G.W.
Phillinns has shared an office room
with the editor of this paper for
months and we are proud to claim a
personal friendship with him. We
not only never accused Mr.Phillips
or the democratic parjjy of being iden
tified with the "low element" in Co-
lumbus, but never said there was such
an element. We have always as
sumed that the men who voted a
gainst Mr Dickinson on the issue
which caused his unpopularity, were
just as holiest as the men who voted
for him. And we have always credit
ed Mr. Phillips with-staudiug w'th
Mr. Dickinson on that issue, simply
pointing out that his, large majority
was due to his being the beneficiary
of a large vote cast on both sides of
that issue, while Mr.Dickiuson got
the vote of only one side. But the
greatest joke of all is for the Telegram
to claim admission to the mails as a
Sunday school periodical. When did

much to do with his other troubles.

hypocrisy and immorality and his
second in command in the Ziou army,
is leading the opposition forces.
Dowie has not been heard in i'uil
but he will doubtless put up a stiff
The eyes of the world are fixed up
on Ziou. The frivolous are waiting to
hear what Mrs. Dowie has to say
about the dashing blondes and gay
brunettes who. "stole Elija's heart
away,"while the serious are looking
for the lesson to christian society
which is sure to be taught by the ca
tastrophe which threatens Ziou.
Viewed from a broad standpoint,
the Dowie movement contains ele
ments of good. D wie has taught the
possibility of combining the industrial
with the spiritual iu municipal life
and has developed in Zion a religio
iudustrial co-operative institution such
as the world has never seen. He has
demonstrated that a city can live,
at least for a while, without those
things which the world calls "neces
sary evils." He has built up a city of
factories and schools and churches,
without saloons, and crime and police.
What the weakness of this great
co-operative organization will turn our
to be can only be inferred. But there
is little doubt that the greatest ele
ment of weakness will be found iu
Dowie himself. Dowie has forced
himself upon his followers as their

as the perfect man and they will not
stand for a counterfei as Dowie, and
every other man must be, in the
very nature of things.
A Columbus lady the other day
suggested a remedy to cure widowers
of early second marriages, which is
worth copy-righting. She said, "We
wives should act like perfect devils
toward our husbands. Then when we
die they will wait a long time before
they will have the nerve to repeat the
experiment. And the public will re
mark on how devoted they have been
