THE NEW SAN FRANCISCO.
Just one week ago today the Gold
en Gate City with its half million in
habitants was all but snuffed out of
existence by earthquake and fire.
Today the sound of the hammer, busy
in the rehabilitation of that city,
drowns the sobs of grief stricken wo
men and the heart-piercing cries of
A great city has fallen. But the
indomitable spirit of the West which
built that city did not perish with it.
And that western spirit is already
planning a new city which in a few
years will be as muoh grander as the
old as is the Chicago of today grand
er than Chicago before the fire. The
flame Nature which finds it necessary
in working out the scheme of the uni
verse to change the wrinkles on the
earth's face, unmindful of the casual
destruction of a few tiny human ant
hills which have chanced to get in
the way, seems to have planned the
American race for a race f conquer
ors. Floods and fiires and earth
quakes hold no terrors for Ameri
cans among whose most spirited types
are the men and women of San Fran
cisco. But more remarkable even than
the American spirit which is rebuild
ing San Francisco, is that other
American virtue of practical sympa
thy, which in the twinkling of an eye
has flooded the sufferers with abun
dant relief from every corner of the
earth where floats the stars and
stripes. Never before has the world
witnessed such an exhibition of practi
cal charity and such a demonstration of
brotherly love. The lesson in opti
mism taught to humanity by
the San Francisco catastrophe is
worth the loss of life and property
involved. Where in the history of
the world can be found a parrallcl to
the relief work at San Francisco?
Who dare read the record and then
maintain that the world is "rowing:
We hear much these days of com
mercialism and selfishness and soul
less corporations. But when before
was there ever a class of men so skilled
in the art of commercial intercourse
that the resources of a continent could
be laid at the threshold of a suffering
city within a fortnight? When was
there ever seen such unselfish dona
tions from rich and poor alike?
What other government would ap
propriate a million and a half for the
relief of suffering in a single city?
What government or private railway
system could have shows more soul
than did the railroad corporations
that carried free of cost supplies for
After all is there not a leaven down
deep in our commercialism that is
raising humanity steadily toward a
higher plane? And is it not necessary
for us once in a while to be jolted out
of the rut of our every-day business
even by a destructive earthquake, in
order to gain the proper perspective
from which to look at ourselves?
Can the democrats carry the next
state election? They profess to think
they can, and this hope has led them
to work for an early state convention
in order that they may capture the
republican platform. This un
usual democratic activity is creating
tittle alarm in republican quarters. I
The average voter does not forget in
ten years. And it was only ten years
ago that the same democratic agita
tors knocked the gubernatorial per
simmons with. the same anti-railroad
pole which they are using now. Then
it turned out that Uncle Si's anti
railroad pole had been carefully se
lected by the railroad companies, and
Uncle Si didn't forget this fact when
he lowered the railroad assessment
which had nidde Gov. Crounse unpop
ular with the railroads. Those who
have watched the railroads in their
fight against the republican officials
who have increased the railroad assess
ment have strong suspicious that the
railroads have again cut the pole for
the democratic agitators. Judge
Reese, a square deal republican, was
defeated by the railroads who prefer
red "anti-railroad Silas." But the
people are next. They will have no
more democratic antis.
One of our democratic contempora
ries attempted to define a "peanut
politician" the other day. In his
haste he opened his political diction
ary at the wrong place. He said that
a peanut politician is a man who has
the nerve to stand up and fight against
men in his own party, when he thinks
they are wrong. Then he proceeded to
roast the "peanuts" till they were
black. Here is the definition the
Journal's political dictionary gives for
the "peanut politician:" A stump
speaker who begins every sentence
with a personal pronoun, first person
singular number. A newspaper man
who tries to launch his candidacy for
office in his .own paper; who works
other papers for interviews and then
reprints them in his own paper; who
"rakes" the "muck" in the ocean to
hide the inlet into his own muck-
Our local contemporary last week
got two of his editorial head lines
mixed. The editorial under the head
"Nebraska Politics" should have gone
under the head "Peanut Politics" and

sowing oats, the potatoes are planted
and the condition of winter wheat
shows about SO per cent. Frank Ruth

wheat in his vicinity The field con
tains about 20 or 30 acres.
In an overland trip to Oreston the

countered. The farmers were very
busy in the fields and seemed to be
well along with their work. Sowing
and cultvating in oats seemed to be
the order of the day. and a few had
just commenced plowing for corn,
nearly one half of the land is made up
of hills and ravines which ib utilized
for grazing purposes, and some of the
