Republican, Democratic and Populist
State Conventions.
The Respective Meetings Highly Harmonious, All
Nominations Having Previously Been Made
in Recent. State Primary Election.
Tie republican state convention
which met in Lincoln on the 24th.
presided over by Gov. Sheldon, had
bnt little to do but to frame a plat
form and appoint the .state central
committee, as nominations had been
made in the primaries. Two sessions
were held, both short, the lastpf
which put forth the following as
The Republican Platform.
As the representatives of the repub
licans of Nebraska, in state convention
assembled, wc asain commend the in
spiring character and undaunted lead
ership of Theodore Roosevelt. We es-
" peclally indorse what he has accom
plished, with the support of a repub
lican congress, toward subjecting the
overweening railroads engaged in in
terstate commerce to the regulating
arm of the government and in curbing
the rapuclty of tiie lawless trusts by
forcing them to desist from their crim
inal practices. These policies have our
unqualified approval and in order that
no backward step be taken, we will
Insist that his successor be a man
whose record pledges a continuance of
the distinctive polices of the Roosevelt
While not presuming to forestall the
action of any future convention, we
express the belief that the republicans
of Nebraska recognize in the Honor
able William H. Taft of Ohio one
whose personal character and whose
long public service mark him as pre
eminently the man under whose lead
ership these policies would be perpetu
ated. We indorse the present state
administration. State affairs are be
ing conducted with integrity and sa
gacity. Our public institutions are be
ing neither injured by parsimony nor
scandalized by profligacy. The state's
credit is high, and its long standing
debt is being rapidly extinguished and
will soon lie paid. Its public school
funds are growing enormously and be-
ing wisely inested in interest-bearing
We commend our republican delega
tion in congress for their faithful rep
resentation of the Interests of the peo
ple of Nebraska. Wc especially com
mend the last legislature for faithfully
fulfilling republican pledges made to
the people. It was a record of legisla
tive fidelity without precedent in Ne
braska. The platform pledges of political
parties mean something only when
read in the light of the record ot
achlcxement. It is our rare privilege
to call attention anew to the platform
promulgated by Nebraska repunftcans
a year ago. whose every promise lias
Iwen carried out in scrupulous goou
.faith. The republicans piomised the
' poopcl of this state the following re
Xorms. 1. A state-wide direct primary.
2. Abolition of the free pass evil.
3. Comprehensive powers for the state
railway commission.
A. More equitable iate or transpor
tation of passengers and freight.
r. Equal taxation of railroad prop
erty for city purposes.
&. Abolition of fellow servant law
and full employer's liability.
- 7. A pure food and dairy law.
i. ItiKid economy in appropriations.
Every one of these pledges has been
We express our satisfaction with the
operation of the new primary law. It
.. gives to the individual the same equal
voice in the selection of all candidates
that is given in the election that fol
lows. Its first experiment was to ob
tain a freer and fuller expression of
sentiment than has heretofore been
. possible to obtain under the caucus
system. We pledge such amendments
to the law as experience demonstrates
re necessary to make it a more per
fect system of choosing candidates.
We indorse the work of the state
' railway commission and expect it to
continue to be a serviceable instru-
i ment in enforcing the laws without
.fear or favor and to deal speedily. Im
partially and justly with all com
plaints against the roads. And we
especially indorse the present efforts
of the commission to effect a reason
ablc additional reduction in grain
rates. We call upon the railway com--mission
to investigate if only those
-giving the railways "the major portion
of their time" are on the list of pass
bolders, and wc insist upon a rigid en-
. forcenient of the anti-pass law.
. AVe believe the federal judiciary law
should be amended to define the citi
zenship of interstate corporations for
the purposes of jurisdiction of rederai
courts by providing that for the pur
poses of original jurisdiction and juris
diction on removal from state courts,
or federal courts, a corporation shall be
deemed a citizen of every state where
it has filed or is required by the law
of that state to file in the manner re
quired of domestic corporations, its ar
ticles of incorporation. And in addi
tion thereto that every foreign corpo
ration, or its successors, assigns, or
lessees, exercising or claiming the
right of eminent domain, under a state
law. shall be deemed a citizen of that
state for the purposes of jurisdiction
of federal courts. .
We favor the enactment of a federal
law, and. if necessary, an amendment
to the federal constitution, which will
forbid the -federal courts from issuing
writs of injunction against state oflj
" cers charged by law with the enforce
. Bicnt of state statutes.
We regard with high favor the nom
inees of our state ticket, and invite all
voters who believe in official probity
and efficiency to join in electing them.
The democrats gathered in the sen
ate chamber, where organization was
perfected. Everything passed off
smoothly, there being no hitch or lack
of harmony in the proceedings. W. J.
Bryan delivered an earnest political
address but the convention refrained
from endorsing him for president.
There was some little conflict in nam
ing the state committee, but the bus
iness was soon got through with in
a highly satisfactory manner. In gen
eral there was no disposition to fuse
between the democratis and the popu
lists in the convention. Each party
paddled its own canoe without con
ferences. Following is
The Democratic Platform.
We. the democratic party of Ne
braska, in delegate convention as
sembled, express our continued confh
4nce in. and admiration for. Honor
able William eJnnings Bryan: and re
asert our fidelity to the principles
which be has so ably advocated, and
which at this time are so generally
accepted by a large majority, of the
people of the United States.
We rejoice at the Increasing signs
of a moral awakening in the United
States. The various Investigations
have traced graft and political cor
ruption to the representatives of pred
atory wealth and laid bare the -"unscrupulous
methods by which they
have debauched elections and preyed
upon a defenseless public through the
sabservient officials whom they have

Believing, with Jefferson, in "the
support of the state governments in
all their rights and the most com
petent administrations for our domes
tic concerns and the surest bulwark
against anti-republican tendencies."
and In "the preservation of the general
government in Its whole constitutional
vigor, as the sheet anchor of our peace
at homeland safety abroad." we are op
posed to the centralization implied in
the suggestions, now frequently made,
that the powers of the' -general govern
ment should be extended' by judicial
construction. While we favor the ex
ercise by the general government of all
Its constitutional authority for the pre
vention of monopoly and for the regu
lation of interstate commerce, we ln-
ed to. and not substituted for. stare
We favor the election of United
States senators by direct vote of the
people, and regard this reform as the
gateway to all other national re
forms. A private monopoly is indefensible
and intolerable. We, therefore, favor
the vigorous enforcement of the crim
inal law against trusts and trust
magnates, and demand the enactment
of such additional legislation as mar
be necessary to make it impossible for
a private monopoly to exist in if
United States. Among the additional
'-remedies we specify three: Kirst. -a
law compelling corporations engaged
in interstate "commerce to sell to all
purchasers in all parts of the country
on the same terms, after making due
allowance for cost of carriage; second,
a law preventing the duplication or
directors among competing corpora
tions: and third, a ileense system
which will, without abridging the
right of each state to create corpora
tions, or its right to regulate as it
will foreign corporations doing busi
ness within its limits, make it neces
sary for all manufacturing and trad
ing corporations engaged in interstate
commerce to take out a federal license
before it shall be permitted to control
as much as 25 per cent of the product
in which it deals, the license to pro
tect the public from watered stock and
to prohibit the control by such corpo
ration of more than oO per cent of the
total amount of any produce consumed
in the United States.
We insist upon the recognition of the.
distinction between the natural man
and the artificial person, called a cor
poration, and we favor the enactment
of such law as may be necessary to
compel foreign corporations to submit
their legal disputes to the courts of
the states in which they do business,
and thus place themselves upon the
same footing as domestic corporations.
We favor an immediate revision or
the tariff by the reduction of import
duty. Articles entering into competi
tion with articles controlled by trusts
should be placed upon the free list:
material reductions should be made in
the tariff upon all necessaries of lite,
and reductions should be made in such
other schedules as may be necessary to
restore the tariff to a revenue basis.
We favor an Income tax as a part of
our revenue system, and we urge the
submission of a constitutional amend
ment specifically authorizing congress
to levy and collect a tax upon individ
ual and corporate incomes, to the ena
that wealth may bear Its proportion
ate share of the burdens of the federal
government. We favor a national in
heritance tax to reach the "swollen
fortunes" already in existence, but we
believe that it is better to permanently
prevent "swollen fortunes" by abolish
ing the privileges and favoritism upon
which they are based.
We assert the right of congress to
exercise complete control over inter
state commerce, and we assert ths
right of each state to exercise just as
omplete control over commerce with
in its borders. We demand such an
enlargement of the powers of national
and state railway commissions as may
be necessary to give full protection to
persons and places from discrimina
tion and extortion. We bellee that
both the nation and the various states
should, first, ascertain tiie present
aluc of the railroads, measured by
the cost of reproduction: second, pro
hibit the issue of any more watered
stock or fictitious capitalization; thiid.
prohibit the railroads from engaging in
any business wnicn urings mem into
competiton with their shippers; ana
fourth, reduce transportation rates
until they reach a point where they
will yield only a reasonable return on
the present value of the roads sucn
reasonable return being defined as a
return sufficient to keep the stocK or
the ronds at par when such roads arc
honestly capitalized. To supplement
the reductions made by tiie various
states in passenger rates, we favor an
act of congrcs requiring the railroads
to sell interstate tickets at a rate not
exceeding the sum of the local rate.
We favor the establishment of state
and national boards of arbitration
which shall have authority to investi
gate, either upon their own initiative
or at the request of eithor party, any
industrial dispute between corporate
employers and their employees, the
findings of such boards not to be
binding upon cither party, but to serve
as a guide to public opinion and as n
means of conciliation between labor
and capital.
We favor the eight hour day.
We are opposed to "government by
iajunction," the system under wnicn
the writ of injunction is used to deny
to laboring men the protection of trial
by jury. We favor full protection, by
both national and state governments
within their respective spheres, of all
foreigners residing in the United
States, under treaty, but we are op
posed to the admission of Asiatic emi
grants who can not be amalgamated
with our population, or whose pres
ence among us would raise a race Is
sue and involve 'us in diplomatic con
troversies with oriental parties.
We welcome Oklahoma to the sister
hood of states and heartily congratu
late her upon the auspicious beginning
of her great career.
Wc favor separate statehood for Ari
zona and New Mexico, and demand for
the people of Porto Rico the 'full en
joyment of the rights and privileges of
a territorial form of government.
We sympathize with the efforts put
forth for the reclamation ot the arid
lands of the west, and urge the largest
possible use of irrigation in the devel
opment of the country.
We favor the speedy completion of
the Panama canal.
We favor a generous pension policy,
both as a matter of justice to the sur
viving veterans and their dependants
and because It relieves the country or
the necessity of maintaining a large
standing army.
We condemn the experiment in im
perialism as an inexcusable blunder,
which has involved us in an enormous
expanse, brought us weakness in
stead of strength, and laid our nation
open to the charge ot abandoning the
.fundamental--doctrine of self-government.
We favor an Immediate decla
ration of the nation's purpose to rec
ognise the independence of the Philip
pines as soon as a stable government
can he established, such independence
to be guaranteed by us, as we guar
antee the independence of Cuba, until

Destroyed His Statue.
Within the last month there was
displayed in the fine arts hall of the
Tokio industrial exhibition a marble
statue of a young girl bending over a
dower which she held in her hand.
Its sculptor, Shikai Kitamura, becom
ing incensed at 'the jurors who were
to make the awards, determined to
punish tLem by destroying his statue.
So he got a chisel and mallet, went
to the hall and knocked off the head
and arms of the statue before he could
be stopped.

Beginning Right.
The surest way of making the
world better is to begin with our
selves. Until we have fought our own
sins, and come up against the deceit
fulness of our own hearts, we cannot
be wise warriors for the right, or mer
ciful helpers to the fallen. Until we
have learned self-denial, obedience
aud love, we will be of very little use
in the world's dark places. Being
good is the threshold of doing good.
Corks Made 'from Paper.
A machine for making corks out of
waste paper an dpaper pulp has re
cently been perfected and patented.
This machine makes corks out of all
kinds of waste paper, which are much
superior to the ordinary corks, as
they are impervious to acids or oils.
Tests made by chemists and the
larger users of corks say-they are far
superior to the old style in every way.

Uncle Eli felt he knew the metropo

three times in four years and twice
he had ridden on the elevated. So
when he brought Aunt Susan with
him (on the fourth trip) he naturally
assumed the role of guide.
She marveled at everything until
they sat down for luncheon. They
had gone into the Astor house for that
meal, but all its other marvels seemed
lost on the visiting country hostess, as
she looked open-eyed at the crowds
that filled not only the corridors but

"After my granddaughter of about
seven years had been cured of the
measles, she was attacked about a

painful eruption all over her body,
especially the upper part of it, forming
watery and bleeding sores, especially
under the arms, of considerable size.
She suffered a great, deal and for three
weeks we nursed her every night,
using all the remedies we could think
of. Nothing would help. We tried the
Cuticura Remedies and after twenty

The pure fcod" law does not prohibit
the sale of Cream of Tartar Baking
Powders because Cream of Tartar is
as pure as Alum but it is a well

Baking Powders, declares that a pure
Alum baking powder is better and less
injurious than the so-called Cream of

vegetable specimens, which have 'for
tunately escaped damage by hail, al
though heavy storms have more than

potatoes are a wonderful crop, and he
expects to raise 1,500 bushels from

of 'tubers selected yesterday average
sore than a pound each. Adjoining
the potatoes may be seen a marvelous
collection of tomatoes. There are 600
plants, all growing under an enor

stock picked yesterday, contained
eighteen tomatoes and weighed, four
pounds. This extraordinary example
of marvelous growth, together with
some of the potatoes were sent to the

Women Avoid
When a woman sufferinr from
female trouble is told that an oper
ation is ncrcMsry, It, of course,
frightens her.
The very thoveht of thehosnital.
the operatlns; table and the knife
strikes terror to her heart.
It is quite true that these troub
les may reach a stage where an ope
ration is the only resource, but a
great man j women have been cured
bj Lydla EL Pinkham's Vegetable
Compoand after an operation has
been decided upon as the only cure.
The strongest and most grateful
statements possible to make come from women wno oy taiana;
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
made from native roots and herbs, have escaped serious operations, as
evidenced by Miss Bose Moore'scase, of 307 W. 36th St.. N.Y. She writes:
Dear Mrs. Pinkham:-"Lydia E. Pinkhaa'a Vegetable Compound has
cured me of the very worst form of female trouble and I wish to express
to yon my deepest gratitude. I suffered intensely for two years so that
I waa unable to attend to mv duties and was a burden to mv f amil v. I
doctored and doctored with only temporary relief and constantly objecting '
to an operation which I was advised to undergo. I decided to try Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound; it cured me of the terrible trouble
and I am now in better health than I have been for many years."
This and other such cases should encourage every woman to try Ly
dia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound before she submits to an operation.
An. Hnkham's Standing Invitation to Women
. Women suffering from any form of female weakness are invited to
promptly communicate with Mrs. Pinkham. at Lynn, Mass. From the
symptoms given, the trouble may be located and tire quickest and surest
way of recovery advised.
