THE PLATFORM. 1 We, 'the republican "delegates of Ke braska. in convention' assembled, con gratulate the country upon the splen did achievements of our party during Its fifty years of history under- the leadership of our Illustrious statesmen, from the immortal Lincoln to the in vincible Roosevelt. We declare anew, our adherence to the principles enunci ated in the republican- national plat form. We also reaffirm all the doc trines and declarations pf our last state platform. " We especially, commend the inspiring character and undaunted leadership of Theodore Roosevelt. It is with ex ceeding pride' "that we "contemplate the confidence reposed in him by the peo ple of our own 'country, and the admir ation he commands from " the whole world. Nebraska' rejoices in the fact that the, president has received the united support of our entire delegation in i. both houses of congress for 'the many v.bcneflcial-measures he has .rec ommended in direct line of. Interest and advantage to the people, which they have, assisted in framing Into whole some laws.- Among the most note .worthy -are: The- railroad rate bilL ' ' The Panama canal bill. ' The lock level canal system. The-pure food bill. - The Irrigation bill. .Tho employers' liability .MIL The meat .inspection Mil. The denaturized alcohol bilL ' The. Oklahoma statehood bilL The- naturalixatioa.-bHl. Our country Is at peace' with' all .na tions of .the earth and. is experiencing an unparalleled season of genuine pros perity. Never before In our history as a nation has- our credit been better than it. Is tcday. Money is plentiful, the wage earners, the farmers and the business people are prosperous, owing to the wise, judicious and careful ad ministration of the laws 'enacted by the republican partv f-'g its control of our national Ciitura, We 'declare, our unalterable allegi ance to the principle of protection, un der the beneficent -operation of which our country has grown both rich and great. While. yielding nothing- from our adherence. to this principle, we be lieve that changes in schedules ''should follow, changes in conditions. . The his tory of the republican party ' demon strates that such revision can safely be trusted only to,. the party which. hon estly believes in protection and ear nestly endeavors' to justly apply.' the principles, to conditions as 'they exist. We most heartily approve the action of. our. officers, botn of the nation and in the state, in their splendid efforts to insure justice .for the people ? against conspiring .trusts .and combinations and all forms of graft, that all -may have a "square deal." The glorious record of the past is the party'a best .pledge for the future. We' indorse and commend the econo mical ' and - law-enforcing administra tion of the affairs of the state under Governc John H. Mickey. P-'lng the. last six years under the republican ad ministration the state of Nebraska has been well governed; all of Its qtate In stitutions have been ably and econo mically managed and .are sustained at a. rate per capita unusually low. We believe that the Union Pacific and Burlington railway "companies should have accepted the valuation S laced upon their property by the state oard of equalization and assessment, and paid their taxes, as all persons and -other corporations -have 'done. ' We ap prove, the action of "the . legal depart ment of this state In Its efforts to en faces the provisions ef the revenue Tluw and. secure the payment of taxes -ana measre our sunnort in comDeiuncr I, the railroads to pay their just share of taxation at me same time ana in tne samemaneras a private Individual. We demand that the next legislature enact -a direct primary law, providing for the nomination of all state, county and district officers, including congress men and United States senators, by di rect vote; ana, until sucn ta.vr is enact ed, we favor the nomination of United States senators by state convention, and we pledsre the repnblicans.elected to the legislature to support for Un'tod States senator the republican candidate who may be nominated for that office by this contention. .We favor the amendment of the con stitution of the United States provid ing for the election of United States Senators by a direct vote of the people. . We declare ourselves as unalterably opposed to the domination of corpora- ,t ions 1 la 1 public affair, .and '-urge... the enactment, by. the next legislature of an anti-Dass law that will prevent the Is suance of any free - pass, free ticket. iree transportation, or transportation known as newspaper or editorial mile age, excent to bona -fide emnloves of a -railroad company and to 1 members -of tneir immediate iaraiiies and caretak ers of live stodf , : . - We are. heartily ila favor, of and our party unreservedly' pledges Its indorse ment of. the proposed constitutional amendment providing for three railway coremiaaibBera to bet elected by direct vote of the people, and demand that the next legislature shall confer. upon such commission -power to prohibit re--bates, discriminations and special rates to corporations, persons or localities and to see;to It that any and all- abuses are corrected, and equitable, freight had passenger rates obtained for the people We hereby direct the officers of this convention to certify this reso lution to the secretary, of state as pro vided for. in the law submitting the constitutional amendment relating ta the railway commission.

" aha aald, taktag her eoasin's arm agaia; and the aaerc'tary went in to aet the wires at work In Win ton's affair. . Now Mias Carteret waa a woman In very fiber of .her, but among her gifts Abe might have counted some that were, to say- tha least, super-feminine. One of these was a measure, of discre-Jioa- which, would have been- fairly creditable' in a hast master of diplo macy. So, while the sympathetic part of her was crying oat 'for a chance to talk Winton'a threateaed danger over with aome one, aha' lent herself outwardly to the Reverend x.IUy'a mood which was one of acealc enthoalasm; this without prejudice to a growing deter mination to Intervene In behalf of fair piay for Wintpn if ahe could find a way. '-.. But the way obstinately refused to discover ttself. The simple thing to do woulrbe to appeal to her uncles sensef justice," It was not like him to fight with Ignoble weapons, sne thought, and' a tactful word la season might make- him recall the order' to the superintendent But she could not make the appeal without .betraying Jastrow. ' She knew well enough that the secretary had no right to show her the telegrams'; anew also that Mr. Somerville Darrah's first word would be,avdemand to know how ahe had learned the company's business secrets. Regarding Jastrow as little as a high bred young woman to whom sentiment is as the breath of life can regard a man who Is quite devoid of It, she was still far enough from tta thought of effacing him. - To this expedient there was an un hopeful alternative:- namely, the send ing, by the Reverend Billy, or. .in the last resort, by herself, of a. warning message to Wtaton. But there were obstacles reemtagly insuperable. She had "not . the faintest notion - of how such a warning should -be addressed; and again,- the. operator at- Argentine was a Colorado, d;. Grand River em ploye, doubtless loyal to his salt. In which case the warning message would never get beyond his waste basket . "Getting too chilly for yoa oat here? -iwant to go In?" asked the. Reverend Billy, when the- scenic enthusiasm be gan to. outwear Itself. - "No; but I am tired of the sentry-go partxof it ten steps and a turn." she confessed!. a "Can't we walk on the trick a little way?' Calvert saw no reason why they might not, and accordingly helped her over to the snow-encrusted path be tween the rails. . "We can trot down and have. a look at. their construction camp, .if -yoa like," he suggested,' and thitherward "they went There was not much to see, after all. as' the Reverend Billy remarked when they 'had reached a colza of vantage below the curve. A string of use-worn bunk cars; a "dinkey" caboose serving as the home on .wheels of the chief of construction ; and his assistant; a crooked-siding with a gang of dark skinned laborers at work unloading a car pf steel.. These ta the immediate foreground; and a little way apart, perched high enough oa the steep slope of the mountain side to 'be out of the camp turmoil, a small.'-structure, half plank and half canvas to-wit, the end-of-track telegraph office. It was Virginia who first marked the boxed-up tent standing on the slope. "What go yoa Suppose . that little house-tent, is for?" she asked. "I don't -know," said .Calvert Then he saw the wires and ventured a gue&s which hit the mark. "I didn't suppose they would have a telegraph office," she commented; with hope rising again.- ' "Oh. yes; they'd have to have a wire; one of their own. Under the circumstances they could hardly use ours." "No," she rejoined, absently. She was scanning th.- group of steel -handlers In. the hope that a' young man in a billy-cock uat and with a cigar ette between- his lips would shorty reveal himself. . She found him after a time and turned quickly to her cousin. "There is Mrv Adams down there b7 the engine.. Do you think. he would come over and speak to us if he knew we were here?" The Reverend Billy's smile was of honest admiration! "How could you doubt It? Walt here a minute and. Ill call hid for yoa." ' .'l? . 1 , He was gone before she could reply, across the ice bridge', spanning -one of the pools, and up the rough, frozen embankment of the new line. There were armed guards here, too, as well as at the front, and one of. them halted him at the. picket line. But Adam3 saw and recognized him, and' present ly the two were crossing to where Vir ginia stood waiting. . . Eheu! what a little world we live In, -Miss Virginia!
