In the discussion of the tariff bill in
the senate, the Nebraska senators have
voted with the genuine tariff reformers
and any attempt on the part of the
Bryanized press to discredit them will
fail to convince the people that they
should be classed with that bunch of
southern democrats who vote for a
tariff reform platform in a national
convention and or high protective
duties in the United States senate.
As a tariff reform party the democrat
ic party is a fraud.

from the world and science become the
god of the nations.
James J. Hill, in a recent address
at Seattle, in commenting on the pop
ular craze for enacting more laws,
advised his countrymen to stop passing
laws and open a campaign of law
enforcement It is generally known
that Nebraska has a law against keep
ing saloons open on Sundays. The
law is a good one, and no citizen has a
just cause for complaint when the law
is enforced. But the liquor law is
about the only Sunday law that is
obeyed in Nebraska at present, for
the reason that there is a demand for
its enforcement There is also a law
against sporting, quarreling, hunting,
fishing or performing unnecessary
work on Sundays. These laws are
openly violated, and yet no effort has
been made during the campaign for
morality to enforce them.
It will be recalled by men old
enough to remember that General
Grant was charged with using intoxi
cating liquor to excess during the war.
- The charge first appeared' in such cop
perhead sheets as the Chicago Times,
New York World and "Brick" Pom
roy's Deatocrat Later, when Grant
became president, the story of his
eoavtval habits was revided. And now
v cornea General O. O. Howard, in an
address delivered in Chicago on Dec
ration day, and refutes what many
believed to be true concerning the
habits ofj General Grant At Bridge
port, Alabama, during the war, Grant
accepted an invitation to occupy How
ard's sleeping apartment There was
a whisky flask, hanging on the wall of
Ike room, and Howard apologised to
his Mperior for its presence, saying:
"I never ase it myself. This whisky
was probably left there by aoase sol
dstr." Grant answered: "Neither do
Ijasa it, and what is more I am sorry
ythatany nun In the army does."
"When the time comes I hope it will
be my pleasure to be called upon to
make a few speeches for yoa for gov
ernor. I am ooeof yoor admirersand
wonld.be delighted to see yon a brother
governor' writes Governor Johnson
of Minnesota, to Mayor James Dahl
man of Omaha.
Mayor Dahlman has announced that
he will be a candidate to succeed Gov
ernor Shallenberger. July 5, the date
the Dahlman democracy have planned
to hold their annual picnic, u the time
set for launching his boom.
The candidacy of Dahlman will
probably force the Bryan and Shal
lenberger factions to unite in opposing
the Omaha statesman, and if they do
they are liable to hear something drop
in the contest for senator and the
object that strikes the earth and flat
tens out will not be the" mayor of
No man in Nebraska has been more
abused by the small bore politicians of
his own party than Dahlman. And in
abusing Dahlman the small bores have
displayed a hatred for Omaha and
Omaha people that has resulted in
uniting the people of Douglas county
in support of Dahlman. Since Gover
nor Shallenberger became popular in
Lincoln for signing the daylight bill
he has treated his party in Omaha
with contempt in the effort to court
the political good will of the republi
cans and retain the element that assist
ed in electing him governor.
Bryan always a trimmer is at
tempting to play the good fellow with
Shallenberger and Dahlman, but both
factions are suspicious of the one time
"Fearless" Leader. But mutual in
terest will probably bring the Shallen
berger machine and the Bryan shout
ers together in a united effort to put
Dahlman out of commission. But
Omaha's mayor is a scrapper in a
political fight and a field marshal in
organizing against his enemies, and
Bryan and Shallenberger realize this,
and hope by declaring a truce and
uniting their strength that they will be
able to defeat him. Bryan is still
inoculated with the idea that he can

Senator Burkett is making a hard
fight for free lumber, in the interest of
his Nebraska constituents. Following
is a part of his speech on the subject:
"In making a tariff bill we must con
sider the best interests of the greatest
number of people of this country. In
my opinion it is of more importance to
the people, it will build up more indus
tries, and it will enable the people to
support more industries, if they can
have their lumber cheaper. I am one
of those who believe that by putting
lumber on the free list it will reduce
the price of lumber to the consumers
in this country, and if it does not I am
here to ask the question which I asked
the senator from Washington several
days ago, when he was making- his
speech: If it will not reduce the price
of lumber, why are the people repre
senting those states wherein lumber is
located so much concerned about the
proposition to reduce the tariff? In
making this bill of 1909 we ought at
least to bring it up to 1909. When
we put logs on the free list, and that
was a good many years ago, ifmight
have,been possible to float them down
the river. But conditions have chang
ed since that time. When the timber
got farther lck from the streams they
had to manufacture it to meet the
requirements of the transportation
facilities. It was quite natural under
the protective theory that the rate on
finished lumber should be higher than
on rough lumber. But today we have
gotten as far away from the rough
lumber as we are from the log proposi
tion. You cannot buy a stick pf rough
lumber today in the retail yards of the
Mississippi valley, and that condition
has prevailed for ten years. Why?
Because the lumber manufacturers
have found that it is more profitable
to handle finished lumber than rough
lumber. They have found that thev
can save more in freight rates than it
costs to finish it So when you reduce
the rate on rough lumber and leave a
differential on finished lumber you are
begging the entire question, because
the rough lumber is not of any import
ance in the lumber controversy. In
my opinion this differential on lumber
is simply a humbug.
A good man passed away at his
home in Fullerton on June 2. His
funeral was held last Friday and a
thousand people followed his remains
to the grave. For fifty years Rev. R.
K. Pierce had served bis master and
the people faithfully and well. Men
tally equipped to have taken his place
among the great divines of the country
and commanded a salary of thousands
of dollars a year, yet be cast his
lot with the common people. Asa
platform orator be had no equal in this
part of Nebraska, and was the equal
of any man in the state in his chosen
profession. But above all be was a I
good man a Christian gentleman who
reognised no creed or nationality in bis
work. He labored for the welfare.of
humanity. Where skknemrand dis
tress prevailed in his community, there
yoa woald find Rev. R. KPierce fol
lowing the example set by his" Master
more than eighteenth hundred years
ago. Peace to his ashes.
Senator Lodge, always faithful to
the Massachusetts cotton and wool
manufactures declared in the senate
hut Tuesday that there has been no in
tention or promise of a downward re
vision of the tariff. Senator Aldrich
had previously signified the same opin
ion. In the west at least; no man who
went through the last campaign awake
doubted that the republicans, expected
to revise the tariff downward. How
can men high in the. national councils
make assertions so glaringly contrary
to the obvious facts?
The senators who take this position
rely for technical justification, no
doubt, on the national platform. This
promised revision "by the imposition
of such duties as will equal the differ
erence between the cost of production
at home and abroad." This does not
specify that the changes shall be down
ward. Political platforms are usually made
subject to liberal construction in order
that all sections and interests may
please themselves with it In the ab
sence of established facts bearing on
the difference between cost of produc
tion at home and abroad a politician
in a cotton, wool, lumber, steel, sugar
or glass manufacturing district might
tell his people that Jhis tariff plankri
meant higher duties for them, while
the farmers might be assured it meant
revision downward for them. No
doubt this is what Aldrich and Lodge
told their business proteges. That is
one place where the tariff as a local is-,
sue comes in.
But there is one representative of
party and interpreter of its promises
who stands not far a section of an in
terest, but for the party and country as
a whole. His utterances, more than
platforms or the words of senators de
notes a party policy. The man is the
party candidate for president In his
acceptance speech Mr. Taft said:
"The tariff in a number of schedules
.exceeds the difference between the cost
of production of such articles at home
and abroad." At Cincinnati last Sept
ember he said: "On the whole the
tariff ought to be lowered." At Mil
waukee two days later he said: "In
practically every case in which ade
quate protection has been given
the necessity for maintaining the tariff
at the former fate has ceased."
These and many similar utterances
of the presidential candidate look like
the promise and intention of downward
revision. The senators and represen
tatives with interests to serve may de
cline to be bound by a president's pro
mise. Well, then, no more needs the
veto vested president to be bound by
their performances. Lincoln Journal.
STATE INSPECTION OF FARMS.
In the current issue of a technical
journal, F. W. Fitzpatrick of Wash
ington, but formerly of Dulutb, makes
the iugenius suggestion that farm lands
ought to be closely inspected, if uot
actually controled, by the state.
The suggestion is almost startling,
and will naturally meet with consider
able hostility, yet it is not one that
Should be cast aside without proper
consideration. It is based upon the
knowledge that present methods of
farming are, in altogether too many
cases, robbing the soil of its fertility
just as surely as continued shipments
from a mine tend to leave nothing but
"a hole in the ground." Since the
public's welfare, and even its existence,
depends upon maintaining the produc
tiveness of the soil, surely this is a
proper subject for the exertion of the
public authority, through the agencies
It is most assuredly a matter for
public concern, and therefore a mat

yield in Minnesota, for instance, should
have dropped from better than twenty
five bushels to the acre in lew than a
generation to twelve bushels to the
acre, and should be still going down.

visited Lake Chautauqua. She wanted

husband for money. He just laid his

unconcernedly around the store.

nonchalantly, "he is just a Kansas

THE LIBERTY ARSENAL
The Liberty arsenal played a part
in the history of the West and of the
nation. The arsenal was established
by the United States government in
1837 on the river three miles south of
Liberty in Clay county, Missouri. i Up
to the closing days in 1855 it was mere
ly a military store house wearing an
aspect of peace-scarcely comporting
with its warelike character. In that
year there was war on the plans of
Kansas. It was the Wakarusa war,
bloodless but important Historians
state with striking unanimity that the
first gun of the great Civil war was
fired at-Fort Sumter. Rightly under
stood, the first military maneuver, if
not the first shot, occurred on the
Wakarusa and the arsenal at Liberty
contributed the arms.
The report was widely circulated
along the border counties of Missouri
that legal processes could not be ex
ecuted in the adjoining territory of
Kansas, clearly indicating the need of
Missouri prowess-on the ground. It
was in December, 1855 but the weath
er was fine such weather in the late
autumn as invited an active pioneer
Missourian to take any kind of ft camp
ing out excursion;-all the better if it
had a military flavor and was sanc
tioned by a patriotic motive. The
Missourians had been accustomed to
live almost constantly in a military at
mosphere. They had fought in wars
with the Indians;- they had driven out
the Mormons, they had conquered
Mexico; they had hunted buffalo in
the territory before any white settle
ments were made; they had gone over
there to vote at the 'first opportunity;
and now an excursion to Kansas was
especially attractive. The Missour
ians began .to assemble joyously at
Westport and in that vicinity, bringing
squirrel rifles and such shooting irons
as could be found in the country: But
arms were scarce and it was under
stood that the Kansans were provided
with Sharp's rifles, a very efficient
weapon in those days. Therefore the
suggestion to borrow arms and am
munition from the storehouse at Liber
ty became popular as soon as made.
About 100 eager and enterprising
Missourians repaired to the Liberty
arsenal and brought away three brass
field pieces, mounted, 100 dragoon
pistols, fifty-five rifles, sixty-seven sa
bers and ammunition in abundance.
The company thus equipped was a wel
come addition to the army forming at
Westport The whole excursion mo
ved into Kansas and a camp was form
ed on the Wakarusa. Just before
Christmas the Missourians broke camp
and returned, to their homes. The
weather turned suddenly cold and the
e ah .a sb .
river began to nil witn floating ice.
Colonel Routh of Clay county spent
the 24th day of December, 1855, in
the work of crossing the river at the
Kansas City ferry with the men and
the arms beloLging to the arsenal.
The arms had been "borrowed" of the
government and all were returned.
The United States government was
very friendly to the Missourians in
their operations against Kansas and no
Missourian would throw his govern
ment in a bad light by failing to return
the property he had borrowed.
After this episode the arsenal re
lapsed into the somnolence of peace
for some years. 'On April 12, 1861,
Fort Sumter was attacked. The news
created intense and rancorous excite
ment along the- Missouri counties
bordering the territory of Kansas.
All eyes were turned on the arsenal at
Liberty, a point no less subject to seiz
ure than Fort Sumpter itself. Within
three days after the fall of Fort Sump
ter itself, President Lincoln called
for 75,000 troops. To the Missouri
ans that was a declaration of war and
there was an instantaneous response in
day and Jackson counties, but in a
manner antagonistic to Lincoln's pur
pose. Some 200 men proceeded en
masse and almost without leaders to
the arsenal for the purpose of seizing
and carrying away everything that
could be useful in war. Three brass
field pieces, mounted, were taken; and
twelve six-pounders, not mounted;
1,180 muskets, 121 carbines, 243 rifles,
923 pistols, 419 sabers, 12,700 pounds I
of power for cannon, muskets and j
DEMOCRATS FOR PROTECTION.

Texas has sixteen democrats in
congress; fourteen of them voted for a

voted lor a tariff on lumber.
Louisiana's delegation is six demo

a tariff on hides; two of them voted
maststeatly wilh the republican
machine on matters of organization,
the coasideratioa, presumably, being
the high tariff which the Payne bill put
rifles, 400,000 cartridges, caissons, ae
contrements and equipemeats for cav
alry and infantry. The arms were not
borrowed bat were taken openly as an
act of war.
The arsenal was uagaarded. It was
in charge of Natbanal Grant, military
storekeeper, who could only yield
under protest The contents of the
arsenal were distributed all over the
country. Every man took what he
could carry away on horseback. The
muskets, rifles and revolvers were hid
den for time in cellars and outbuild
ings or buried in boxes. The bush
whackers bad not at this time been
organised but they succeeded in get
ting a large share of the arsenal spoils.
The State Guards soldiers secured a
share. One of the brass field pieces
was conveyed to Independence and
presently was secreted in the woods on
the Little Blue. A considerable
amount of the captured arms went to
Kansas City' where two or three com
panies of soldiers, acting under the
state law, were accustomed to parade
and drill once or twice a week. These
companies took no part in the capture
of the Liberty arsenal, about half of
whom went with the South and about
half with the North daring the war
that followed. The spoils from the
Liberty arsenal brought to Kansas
City became the source of anxiety,
requiring much secrecy.
The nominal leaders in the capture
of the Liberty arsenal were Henry L.
Routh of Clay county, Captain Mc
Murray of Independence and George
S. Moorman of Kansas City. Moor
man was a youug Iawter, a man of
some ability. He' is accredited to this
day with baviug planned and executed
the capture of the arsenal by the very
few men now living in Kansas City
who took rt in the expedition. He'
took part in the dreadful affair at
Rock creek aud was afterwards em
ployed in the Confederate service,
rising to some distinction.
. The capture of the Liberty arsenal
was the first aggressive movement in
the West against the United States.
Certain friends of the South complain
ed that the attack on the Liberty
arsenal was premature and prevented
the capture of the arsenal at St Louis,
but the fear entertained on the border
counties was that forces would come
down from Leavenworth or elsewhere
in Kansas and secure 'the arsenal for
Within three weeks after the cap
ture of the arsenal at Liberty,, the
state troops at Camp Jackson in St
Louis were surrounded by Captain
Lyon and forced to surrender. The
arsenal at St. Louis was believed to be
in peril by the presence of the state
guards. This fear was founded on the
fact that arms and ammunition which
had been seized at the United States
arsenal at Baton Rouge had been
received by General Frost, commander
of Camp Jackson. The shipment of
these arms had been made by the
steamboat J. C. Swan. Frank P.
Blair and Captain Lyon believed,
therefore, that General Frost meditat
ed an attack in the name of the state
on the arsenal at St Louis.
The fear was probably groundless,
though very reasonabfe, in view of the
seizure at Liberty, which it was believ
ed had the sanction and possibly the
backing of Governor Jackson. The
state authorities probably had nothing
whatever to do with the seizure of the
Liberty arsenal, inasmuch as nothing
was turned over to the state troops or
to any agent of the state. But there
can hardly be any doubt that the
capture of Camp Jackson was directly
the result of the seizure of the Liberty
arsenal. There was no resistance what
ever to Captain Lyon's demand for the
surrender of Camp Jackson. As Lyon
marched through the streets of St.
Louis with his prisoners the sidewalks
were crowded with the excited popu
lace and there was jeering, and insults
were directed towards Lyon's troops,
certain companies of which were com
posed of Germans. The troops were
provoked to fire into the crowd and a
number of people were killed. This
unfortunate affair rendered war inevi
table in the state of Missouri, and the
bitterness engendered continued for a
long tiaie after the war was over.
Florida has three congressman, all
democrats; two of these voted for a tar
iff on lumber.

English Dislike of Humor.
It is sometimes a matter for won
der that humorists are allowed to live
in this country. Deep down in our
English character is a conscious dis
like of laughter. Laughter is an ex

horror of it It may be that this se
cret objection to the comic muse is a
surviving relic of the sturdy old Purl

the race In. many directions and handi

began to be prominent in the house
of commons it used to be said of him
that, though he was a very amusing
fellow and made the house laugh, he
could never hope to take rank as a

went through exactly the same ex
