granted in this case. There is but one thins; about the
matter that we would regret even if it did any good, and
that is that the great state of Virginia, proposes to take
that which she could not give and which she has no right
to take away, namely, the life of the prisoner. Bat if
capital punishment is ever excusable, it seems it must be
when the victim was the wife of the murderer.
A Successor to Latta.
The death of Congressman Latta opens up a new
avenue for activity in the fall campaign. Under the law '
President TafVs Trip.
President Taft will start next Friday on a trip of
13,000 mijes over the country. On this trip he will
make three stops in Nebraska Omaha, on October 1
and, 2, and Lincoln and Hastings on October 2, jumping
then to Denver where he is scheduled for the next day.
The Drogress of the presidential party through the
country, especialy the agricultural i states of the middle
west will be well worth watching and will be watched
closely. Usually when the president takes a trip of this
kind, it is called a trip to hear what the people think of
his administration and his method of handling public
business. But in this case Mr. Taft proposes to make it
an educational trip. Of course, he will naturally main
tain a clote watch as to whether his principles appear to
it now becomes the duty of the governor to call a special
election to fill the vacancy, giving at least ten days'
notice of the same. In this case it is more than likely
that the special election will be called to be held in con
nection with the general election on October 7. It seems
likely also, that nominations for the office will be made
by party conventions of the various parties.
Of course it is as yet a little early to say who may
or may not be candidates. On the democratic side, it
has been known, however, that Dan V. Stevens has
been reputed to have his eye in the place for 1912, and
he will probably become a candidate at this time. It is
also known that a number of friends of C. M. Gruen
ther, who were in the city yesterday approached him on
the subject of becoming a candidate, but he has not yet
said he would become one.
For the republican nomination, it is mere specula
tion to suggest any names, although it is possible that
E. R. Gurney, of Fremont, and Ex-Congressman Boyd,
of Neligh, may become candidates. Then there are
others who hav been named in connection with the
.fight for next year, notably DonC. Van Dusen, of Blair,
and A. W. Ladd, of Albion.
The Beattie Case.
The eyes of the world, or that part of it which en
gages itself in watching criminal history, have been
turned on the state of Virginia during the past few weeks,
watching the progress of a case wherein a man was ac
cused of the murder of his wife. It seems to have been
the same old story with some few original details, per
paps, but essentially the same a man, his wi.'e and the
man's affinity being the leading characters.
One thing that marks "this trial as unique, was the
speed with which the case proceeded to trial. Usually
in cases where the accused is a man of prominence or
wealth, the wheels of justice are locked for months and
sometimes even for years before a definite disposition is
made of the case. But here, the young man stands con
victed and sentenced to tdeath within seven weeks after
the crime of which he was accused was committed. The
date of his execution has been fixed at November 24, less
than a week before the rest of the nation will gather to
return thanks for the blessings bestowed during the year!
Oh, the irony of Fate!
Another feature is that Beulah Binford, the girl in
the case, whose relations with the prisoner are said to
have shocked even the jurymen, is not to be allowed to
go on the stage to be exploited as the woman on whose
head rests the blood of young Beattie and his wife. Too
much of this has been done in the past this exhibition
of women and men who are placed before the public to
gratify a morbid curiosity rather than by any ability to
please, interest or instruct.
The news columns of our daily papers bring the en
couraging news that it is unlikely that a new trial will be
be popular or not, but he gives it out that he intends to
educate the people in what he considers essential points
in government, and. particularly in his administration of
He will undoubtedly have a great deal to say as to
the Canadian reciprocity measure, and his words will be
carefully watched in this state particularly, inasmuch as
Congressman Norris has declared that he will make that
the issue on which he will make his campaign for the
nomination for the United States senate against Senator
Brown. During the time that the Canadian reciprocity
has been an issue before congress and before the country,
Senator Brown and Congressman Norris have been on op
posite sides of the question, the senator siding with the
president and the McCook man opposing it.
The president is admittedly not in an enviable posi
tion, politically, right now. He has incurred the enmity
of both the ultra-high-protectionists and tbe insurgents
by his unwavering stand on this question. He has been !
called a democrat, a free trader, and other things by his
enemies, but they serve only to attract attention to what
ever he may have to say in defence of himself and his
administration, thereby giving his utterances all the more
influence among the people who hear or read and think
them out for themselves. While the American Econom
ist, devoted, as it says, "to the protection of American
labor and industries," is palavering about his "free
trade" propositions, it must be remembered that its cir
culation is not general among the farmers of the middle
west, it being published in the city of New York and
having a total circulation of less than ten thousand.
Everybody says the president has made mistakes.
He probably has. If he had not he would not be fit to
be president of the United States or to fill any other
place requiring a living human being. But there is one
thing about him he may be a poor politician, but he re
fuses to be turned from side to side by the howling of
those who appear to have interests not in harmony with
the policy of the president.
Senator LaFollette appears just now to be the favor
ite of those who are opposed to President Taft's ways.
Should such a thing happen that he should become presi
dent, he would be less popular within a year than Taft
has ever been, for the reason that he is even more self
confident than is the president. He would not only be
less easily reached,' but even after receiving advice would
be less likely to follow it. So far as the country at
large is concerned, the great American people will be
wholly safe with either one let those who would dictate
act and think what they may.
A number of republican papers over the state are
supporting Judge Dean for the supreme bench in pre
ference to Judge Hamer, one of the republican nominees.
If those fellows had had the backbone to oppose Hamer
openly before the primary their position would now be
in better taste.

Gruenther was re-elected vice-chairman of the state com
