The democrats held their state coa

aomiaaUag their ticket, last week ia
Lincoln aad as usual with a demo
crati: convention, it did the wrong
thing at the right time. But that
need not disappoint anybody, because
they would aot be the great democratic
prty, with' a jackass as a party emb

Ma Nebraska there are aot enough
democrats to elect aaybody to a state
ofke and that being the case in order
to have any show to wia the indepen
dent element of voters would have to
be secured fur the democratic ticket.
That could aot be done by aay such
convention acts as was done. That

This is the closing paragraph of a
letter written by Claris Grueatber aad
published ia the World Herald oa
Chris Graeather is the democrat
whe whipped Edgar Howard in the
last Platte couaty democratic conven
tion by a vote of 108 to 20.
Chris Grueather fouad out that the
raak aad file of Platte couaty demo
crats wanted Berge by writing 250
letters to them aad asking them to
state their preference for governor.
Oat of the two hundred and fifty, 237
declared for Berge and 10 declared
for a atrtaight democrat.
Oa the theory that these "ten" con
stituted the ' democracy of Platte
couaty, Edgar Howard, after pledg
ing hw support to Berge through his
aewspaper, went to the democratic
politicians of Nebraska and declared
that Gruenther secured Platte county
for Berge through a "trick" and that
the "rank and file" were really for a
"straight democrat" After his stato
ssentwas given circulation through
the Omaha Bee und otherwise, he pro
ceeded to write articles favorable to
Shallenberger. By these methods,
Edgar Howard did more than any
other democrat in Nebraska to secure
the nomination of Shallenberger and
the defeat of Berge.
If the democrats of Platte county
want to prove that Howard was right
and Gruenther wrong they will vote
.for Shallenberger and thereby, prove
to the democracy of Nebraska that
Chris Gruenther and John Byrnes and
Hans Elliott and a few other leaders
"tricked" the democrats of Platte
county-into supporting Berge.
If the democrats of Platte county
agree with Chris Gruenther, they will
prove that Edgar Howard told an un
truth when he declared that Chris
Gruenther had "tricked" Platte county
democrats to the support of Berge, by
taming down Howard's candidate,
If Chris Gruenther was right when
he wrote the Usee quoted above, -'the
only way to elect Shalleabereer is to
"explaia away" the defeat of George
W. Berge which has "humiliated" the
democratic parly in Bryaa's own state.
, It reauuas to be sees whether the
democrats of Platte county will vindi
cate Edgar Howard or Chris Gruen
ther. No candidates so far have announc
ed themseelves for float represeatative
or state senator from Platte ' county.
Nance coaaty is entitled to a candidate
for represeatative aad it is Colfax
couaty's turn to aame -the senator.
Whether or aot Calfax and Nance
will insist upon exercising their rights
ia this matter remains, to be seen.
Platte couaty republicaas .however,
will ihisjat that men be aamed for
these offices who have no railroad re
cords or afiliatioBS to explain away.
No republics who opposed the iatro
efection of aatipaas .aad rate-regula-tioa
resolutions ia the Platte county
republicaa coBventioa, can expect
aupport for' a legislative office from
'those republicaas who favored the
program that was adopted by the re
publican state convention. " No shams
or eleveaih-hour coaversioas will go
this fall. Aad so far as the Journal
is coBceraed, while having no person-,
al quarrel with the republicans who.
honestly opposed the Sheldon pro
gram ia the coaaty convention, it will
oppose both the Boauaatioa and elec-
tioa.of any maa to the legislature,
who has not been on the Sheldoa
platform at least long enough to find
room. Nebraska mj going to
some rate regulation next wia
ter whether it has a railroad commis
aioa or aot. And the Journal is go
iag to help to sead men from Platte
county who will stand right. . We

of the last' republican state onven

That is the whole story.
The platform adopted -is concise
and strong. But there will be little
discussion of platforms this year.
As a matter of fact there are no
party issues in Nebraska, this. year.
There are no differences among the
taxpayers on state politics. Repub I
licans.and democrats want the same
things. They know exactly what
they waat and will be satisfied by no
shams or makeshifts. It has been a
question of the people against 'the
bosses in both parties. At the demo".
cratic convention the bosses won out
by defeating Berge. At the repub
lican state convention the masses won
out by nominating Sheldon and de
feating Galusha. It only remains for
the masses of Nebraska to register
their approval of the work of the re
publican convention by electing the
republican ticket by' an overwhel
ming majority! ,'
When the democratic party turned
down Berge at Lincoln it divorced
20,000 independent democratic and
populist votes in Nebraska, the same
votes that Parker's victory over
Bryan divorced two years ago -
When the republican party nomin
ated George L. Sheldon it named a
man who' is entitled to every vote
