No trust gifts, says Wm. H. Taft.
The Democratic press of Nebraska
continue to elect Candidate Bryan.
The majority against Bryan in 1890
was 601,810, and in 1900, 849,790.
That 815,000 still remains unac
counted for. Did brother-in-law Tom
and Mayor Jim pocket the entire wad ?
Murphy and McClarren have de
clared for Bryan. Their declaration
.means a quarter of a million majority
in New York for Taft.
The difference between Col. Guffy
and Col. Bryan is that the former
earned his title fighting and the latter
as a dress parade soldier.
You can't convince Platte county
iarmers that they should vote for
Bryan when wheat is selling for 80
cents and corn for 60 cents.
The official "leg pullers" of the
Democratic State Committee still con
tinue their work of demanding $10
for the honor of joining the Bryan
Volunteers. A million volunteers
means a ten million dollar campaign
fund to boost the Fairview "farmer."
The Nebraska News, published at
University Place, has been smelling
around and discovered a Methodist
who "stands for the army beer sa
loon," and a Republican candidate
"who advises the youth of the land to
start Christmas with a drink of whis
ky." The Prohibition party has placed a
national ticket in the field. The usual
platform condemning the republican
party was adopted, and several new
planks added. As a national party
the Prohibitionists have never de
veloped much strength, but hope to
make a good showing this year.
Although the Denver platform
does not contain a government owner
ship plank, Mr. Bryan will make the
question a real live issue if elected, so
his close political friends claim. How
about other dead issues free silver,
for instance, will they be galvanized,
and set up in the White House for
Democrats to worship?
The Prohibitionists in their national
convention scored both the old parties
for refusing to incorporate a prohibi
tion plank in their respective plat
forms. Had both the old parties
adopted prohibition planks, the Pro
hibitionists would have insisted that it
was only a trick to deceive the so
called temperance element.
Three Germans, all farmers and
democrats, residing in Platte county,
were discussing politics in a Columbus
business house the other day, and
the conclusion they arrived at was
that it would be unwise to sup
port Bryan in view of the fact that
farm products are bringing good
prices. All of them expressed their
determination to vote for Taft.

A FIGHTING EDITdiL
Editor Edgar Howard of the Co
lumbus Telegram appeared before the
State Board of Assessment at Lincoln
last Thursday and alleged that he had
dug up $9,000,000 worth of property
which the Union Pacific Railway
Company had failed to return for
There is a division among Platte
county Democrats as to the object Mr.
Howard has in view for the charge he
has brought against the Union Pacific
Company. Some of Jim Latta s
friends insist that the Telegram editor
has a selfish object in view; that he is
attempting to make a grand stand
play and strengthen his candidacy for
congress. Mr. Howard's friends claim
that he is acting wholly in the interest
of the public in the investigation he
has made and has not been governed
by any personal consideration in the
matter. The Journal is inclined to
give Mr. Howard credit for doing
what he thinks is right in the effort he
is making to raise the assessment of the
railway company, and if what he
claims is true, the wrong should be
righted. It is hardly necessary for
Mr. Howard to take the grand stand
in order to strengthen his chances at
the primaries. He already has Latta
and his barrel skinned, but the little
bunch of politicians in Platte county
who are fighting Mr. Howard do not
appear to realize this fact
If rumor can be credited as correct,
Mr. Howard has some pretty strong
backing behind him in the fight he has
started against the Union Pacific. It
is understood that before going before
the State Board of Assessment he con
sulted W. J. Bryan and Banker Shal
lenberger and that these gentlemen
promised him their moral support, as
did also Dr. Hall of Lincoln.
The action of Mr. Howard has
arroused the Lattaites in Platte and
other counties, for they are not blind
to the fact that the Columbus editor
has given the Latta boom a jolt that
is liable to ditch Jim and his barrel.
Up to the present time Edgar appears
to have the best of the fight and is
running several laps ahead of Jim,
and if the latter hopes to regain lost
ground it will be necessary to tap
another barrel and scatter more coin
among the faithful.
DR. STEPHENS' MEDICINE.
An exchange received at the Jour
nal office, edited by a prominent Dem
ocratic politician, contains a lengthy
article criticising Dan V. Stephens for
the part he is taking as chairman of
the Democratic Congressional Com
mittee, in boosting for Jim Latta for
congress, from which the following is
"In his effort to deliver the Demo
cratic Congressional nomination to Mr.
Latta the bounds of common decency
have been overstepped by Chairman
Stephens, and the friends of Edgar How
ard have about reached the limit of their
patience in view of the work of our
chairman in trying by fair means or
foal to employ his official position
against Howard. It is not pleasant to
be compelled to call attention to the
unfair work of Chairman Stephens, but
a sense of justice impels us to denounce
crooked work in politics, no matter
whether the work is done by Guffy of
Pennsylvania, or by the chairman of a
Democratic committee in Nebraska.
Such work cannot win, provided the
Democrats of the district be made
acquainted with the facts, and it is the
duty of all the Democrats who love fair
play io make the shameful facts known
throughout the district."
There appears to have been a sud
den change of heart on the part of a
number of Democratic editors since
the scrap commenced between the
Howard and Latta factions. Two
years ago when Chairman Stephens
employed unfair means to defeat Judge
Boyd, he was commended for his
trickery by the same Democratic edi
tors who are now squealing for "fair
play." If Stephens' dirty work was
right two years ago, it should not be
condemned now; if it was wrong two
years ago, it is wrong now. The anti
Latta papers are only receiving a dose
of the medicine they prescribed fof
Republicans during the congressional
campaign of 1906, and they should
quietly take the dose without making
such a faceabout it. Its Democratic
medicine prescribed by a Democrat
for Democrats. Don't cuss the doctor.

WHAT IS COUNTY OPTION?
To quote -'Clod Crusher," County
Option means that every voter in the
county has .a-right to say whether
saloons-shall exist in said county, or
not The object of thisarticle i first
to prove that "Clod Crusher is mis
taken, like nearly every other advo
cate of county option and is simply
endeavoring to mislead by telling oniy
a portion of the truth. Second, we
shall endeavor to show exactly what
county option is by quoting from the
bill introduced at the last legislature.
The bill says:
If a majority of all the voters voting
at such election on such license ques
tion, shall have voted in favor of grant
ing license, then the no-license proposi
tion shall be lost, PROVIDED, That
nothing herein shall be construed to
prohibit any city council, board of vil
lage trustees, or county board, from
withholding license THE SAME AS IF
THE QUESTION HAD NOT BEEN
SUBMITTED TO THE COUNTY.
"If a majoritv of all the voters voting
at such election on sneh license question,
shall have voted against granting license
THEN no oity council, village trustees,
or county board, nor any other authority
within such county, shall have power to
Thus it will be seen that those who
are harping so much about the rights
of the farmer, are not willing to give
him an opportunity to really settle the
question of saloons for his county.
If a majority say that there shall be
saloons in the county, the county
optionist says that the farmer must
then get out of the game and let the
fellows in town decide the matter. On
the other hand if a majority vote
should be against saloons in the coun
ty, then and in that case, a town could
not have a saloon even though every
voter in the corporate limits should be
a high license man.
Certainly if the farmers have a
right to say that a saloon shall not be
established in a town, they also have a
right to say that it shall be established.
Tricky legislation of this kind can
hardly hope to win. St. Edward
William Randolph Hearst has de
clined to nibble at the bait cast out by
William Jennings Bryan, and an
nounces that the Independence League
will oppose the Nebraskan for Presi
dent In announcing his stand,
Hearst closes his declaration of war
against the Bryanites as follows: "I
do not think the path of patriotism
lies in supporting a discredited and
decadent old party, which has neither
conscientious convictions nor honest'
intentions, nor endorsing chameleon
candidates who change the color of
their political opinion with every
varying hue of opportunism. I do
not think the best benefit of laboring
men lies in supporting that old party
because of a sop of false promise,
when the performance of that party
while in power did more to injure
labor than all the injunctions ever
issued before or since. I have lost
faith in the empty professions of an
unregenerate democracy. I have lost
confidence in the ability, in the sin
cerity and even in the integrity of its
Shallenberger and Dahlman appear
to be the favorites among the
bunch of Democratic candidates
entered for the gubernatorial race,
with betting slightly in favor of the
latter. Berge appears to have jumped
the track, or is trailing along so far in
the rear that he will not be able to
overtake the others before the pri
maries close. Flekes Hale has never
been considered in the race, and Lo
beck, who claims to carry the Swede
vote in his pocket, has not yet been
brought out of the stable, but is
champing at his bit ready for the
fray, the moment W. J. Bryan orders
the jockey to get busy.
While the Prohibitionists are busy
misrepresenting the Republican can
didate for President, they find time
enough to butt in and insist that the
Republicans of Nebraska will be de
feated if they do not elect candidates
at the primaries favorable to the so
called local option measure. Repub
licans have not yet forgotten the cam
paign of 1884, when St John sold out
to the Democrats and assisted in de
feating Blaine for President.
The Bryanites want Nebraska iar
mers to send in contributions to the
national committee to assist in electing
the free silver champion President If
a single check amounting to more than
$10,000 is received, it will be returned
to the farmer sending it Platte county
iarmers who contribute will have
their names added to the Bryan Roll
THE DENVER PLATFORM.
The Denver platform is not a Dem
ocratic platform unless one man is to
be accepted as the absolute sponsor for
the Democracy. It is not a party ex
pression unless one man is to be re
garded as the embodiment of all the
wisdom, all the diplomacy, all the.
foresight of the great political organi
zation to.which he belongs.
Nevertheless it is the platform of a
party, for the Democracy has accepted
it, has become responsible for it and
must make its fight upon it It is
thoroughly characteristic of the man
who made it As with other declara
tions that have borne his impress, it is
a combination of the obviously sound
and progressive and the manifestly
unsound and dangerous. It again be
trays the Bryan habit of over-reaching.
It forces on the party positions
that must be evacuated in the future
as Bryan positions have been evacu
ated in the past.
As to the planks found in both the
Chicago and the Denver platforms,
each party has done well. A great
effort was made by Mr. Bryan to im
prove on the anti-injunction plank of
the Republican party, but he has
accomplished nothing except to make
a little more obvious appeal to union
labor. His tribute to the courts, im
plying criticism of the Republican
attitude, is a bit of humor, for no other
man has done so much to discredit the
courts as has Mr. Bryan through his
insistent phrase "government by in
junction." The effect of the Denver platform
on the campaign will be through its
inclusion of things not mentioned in
the Chicago declaration. Some of
these planks will be found advanta
geous; others will not By declaring
for the publicity of campaign contri
butions, the election of Senators by
popular vote and the laying of an in
come tax, and by denouncing Speaker
Cannon's rule of the House, Mr. Bryan
has met a popular demand that the
Chicago convention ignored.
But he has revived the cry of "Im
perialism," a protest that has no echo
with the public at large, in view of the
splendid advances made in the Philip
pines under the direction of Mr. Taft.
And it is a protest, too, that is wholly
incongruous with Mr. Bryan's ap
proval of what has been done in
He has injected into the irritating
atmosphere of national politics the
most delicate diplomatic problem this
country has faced in many years the
Japanese question. This problem only
recently brought a genuine war men
ace to the very gates of this country.
It was adjusted, subject to deliberate
diplomatic conclusions, by Mr. Taft.
The subject also involves the exceed
ingly troublesome question of conflict
ing authority between the federal gov
ernment and the several states in rela
tion to aliens. To throw this issue
into the hot arena of national politics
is foolhardy, if not' wicked.
And it is scarcely less ill advised to
make a new political issue out of the
old and lamentable question of state's
rights. The so-called "encroachment
of the Federal government" have been
only the extensions of authority made
necessary by the expansion of inter
state commerce, and largely by the
failures of states to establish effective
The condemnation of the President
because a member of his cabinet has
been made a nominee for the Presi
dency, on the ground that such a pro
cedure "tends to establish a dynasty,"
is simply a Bryan puerility.
The Denver platform and the Dem
ocratic candidate for President are
inseparable. The one was made by
the other. Mr. Bryan cannot ignore
any plank of that document. Nor
could he, as President, consistently
supplement the platform.
The Chicago platform meets, so far
as it goes, the views of Mr. Taft. But
it does not mention some things that
Mr. Taft wished to have incorporated.
It is within the province of Mr. Taft,
if he is elected, to amplify his party's
policies, as President Roosevelt has
amplified them, by administrative rec
ommendations, 'and as Mr. Taft has
already extended them by providing
for the publication of campaign con
tributions. It is far better, after all, that a party
should say too little in its platform and
then nominate a progressive candidate
for the Presidency than that a party
should commit itself to ton much and
then nominate for the Presidency a
man who would be absolutely bound
to the platform.
If Mr. Taft is the next President,
the country will hope that he may go
farther than the Chicago platform
If Mr. Bryan is elected the country
will know that he will go the limit of
the Denver platform, and it will live
in constant fear, that he may go even
farther. Kansas City Star.
The voters of all political parties
will be pleased to note that Candidate
Bryan has followed the lead of Candi
date Taft and announced that all
campaign contributions will be made
public In the past both parties re
ceived funds from corporations. In
1896 and 1900 Mr. Bryan was a
beneficiary from funds contributed by
corporations that expected favors in
the event of his election. As this is
Mr. Taft'8 first presidential campaign
he, of coarse, never has had an op
portunity to accept corporation funds
to assist him in campaign work.
Colonel Wright, of Georgia, declin
ed the nomination for President on the

reason that his acceptance would di

cess of the Democratic party in Geor
gia than he has for the success of
MADE LUCKY STRIKE
RICH AUSTRALIAN MINE FOUND
Y TWO MEN.
Discovery of Famous Cosfgardis Made
Millionaires of Previously Unlucky
Prospectors Valuable Nug
gets Found on Surface.
In the history of gold digging and
gold finding many a romantic and
tragic story is to be found. Few ot
these stories, however, possess more
Interest than that of how the famous
Coolgardie mines, in western Aus
tralia, were discovered in 1892
mines which have since yielded mil
lions of pounds' worth of gold. Luck
played a great part in the discovery,
but it was the reward of perseverance.
In April, 1892. two Victorian miners
named Bayley and Ford struck out for
the northeast of Australia, but aftei
traversing 250 miles they lost theii
horses and had to turn back. Equipped
with fresh horses, they started again
on what proved to be a long, tedious
and futile journey, for once more they
were forced to turn back this time
for want of water. The third attempt
won them fame and fortune.
First they found that which to them
was more precious than gold namely,
water. They found a natural well
known to the scattered tribes of that
far away country as "Coolgardie."
Pitching their camp beside the well
they turned their horses out to feed
and started prospecting the country
around. Ford picked up a half ounce
nugget and before night they had gath
ered in over 20 ounces of gold. Two
or three weeks' more surface prospect
ing was rewarded with over 200
ounces. By this time food supplies
had given out, so, keeping their own
counsel concerning their discoveries
they returned to civilization, laid in
a fresh stock of provisions and
hastened back to their El Dorado.
Within a few days of their return
they happened upon the reef that
made Coolgardie. Beginning with a
"slug" .we'ihlng 50 ounces, they
picked out from a cap of that reef in
a few hours upward of 500 ounces of
gold. Bayley, carrying 554 ounces of
gold, journeyed back to the nearest
mining town, exhibited his find to the
mining warden, put in a claim for a
lease of the land on which this mar
velous discovery had been made and
hurried off to the field again with a
party that numbered 150 men. beside?
coaches and horses and all the para
phernalia of prospecting and camping
In their wake in course of time came
gold seekers in hundreds and thou
sands. From Bayley and Ford's mine
there was taken In the first nine years
of Its history 134,000 ounces of gold.,
valued at 530,000.
Almost as sensational as Cool
gardie were the Londonderry and
Wealth of Nations "finds." The Lon
donderry was discovered by a party
of unsuccessful prospectors on theii
way back to Coolgardie. Two of
them picked up some rich gold bear
ing specimens. After a brief search
the outcrop of a reef was exposed,
from which in the course of a few
days they took out from 4,000 to 5,000
ounces of gold. From the cap of the
Wealth of Nations reef gold to the
value of 20,000 was secured in a
