Hla experience of many years fits him for

To our mind Mr. Roaewater la the strong
est candidate yet announced for that office.
His position la well known on a.l queatlona
of the day and we believe he la better
understood and held In greater respect
by the people of thla state today than ever
before. If he In choeen he will be the sena

Ashland Gazette (rep.). I
Edward Roaewater of Tbe Omaha Be will
una a candidate for the United States sena
tors hip before the coming legislature. Mr.
Rosnwater has been for many , years the
leading exponent of those principles which
now seem dominant In the party. Unless
these prlnclplea secure such a readjustment
of political forces sa to bring the populist
democracy Into tba saddle It would only be
a fitting tribute to Mr. Roaewater to make
him then- exponent in the nation's highest
Both Bralaa and Ability.
Btanton Pickett (rep.).
Mr. Roaewater la sure to be a formidable
candidate. His every Idea and act for
more than a quarter of a century haa been
along the lines advocated by President
Roosevelt. With him reform and a govern
ment of the people, for the people and by
the people la no new expression, nor la It
of a spasmodic order. Besides, he has the
reputation as a man of brains and ability
that extend beyond our own country. W ;
have not agreed with all his acts, but If
there Is to be a change we believe that
Mr. Roaewater would be a good selection.
If the Douglas county delegation decides to
drop Senator Millard, the thing for them
to do I to select a Roaewater delegation.

It appears to the Wasp that there would
be no better way far Omaha and Douglas

Is announced as a candidate for that poal
tlon by his son, Mr. Victor Rosewater. If
any man In Nebraska I to be rewarded
for consistency In advocating thoss prlncl
plea for which the people are contending
at ' the present Junctor there can be ' no
f question on whom that honor should be
bestowed. Thla paper haa no preferred
candidate for United State senator, but
after looking the Held over we are unable
to discover a man that so nearly represents
the various reforms for which the domi
nant element of tbe republican party. Is
now contending than Hon., Edward Rose
water, editor of The Omaba Bee. It can
be said of him that he Is able and can b

Fearless Defender af the People,
Verdigre Citlien (rep.).
The writer haa known Mr. Rosewater ever
since he established The Bee and In all
these years we have never known him to be
anything but a fearlesa and consistent de
fender of the people of Nebraska. .The state
haa been ao poorly represented In tbe upper
house of congrasa for go many years that
the people, and not the. corporations, should
see that Rosewater Is sent to the United

Allen . News (rep.).
Edward Rosewater, editor of The Omaha
Bee, la a candidate for United States sena
tor from Nebraska, and the News hopes
he will be successful Ever since the writer
haa known anything Edward Rosewater has
beea a republican who haa been fighting
the corporations snd trusts and standing
up for the common people. He haa been
the greatest and hardest fighter Nebraska
haa ever known. . For his aggressiveness
he has been brutally assaulted time and
again; for tbe same reason he has known
what It la to be sentenced to Jail; he has
made an enemy of every ring politician In
Nebraska; hla personal motives and char
acter have been traduced and maligned,
but through It all they never could or can
read him out of hla party or stop his sup
port of good government or championship
of the common people. There Is not' a
single republican In Nebraska who Is so
worthy of recognition by bis party. He Is
brainy and a man who does things. ' He Is
a Roosevelt republican, who knows what
Nebraska needs, and If the republicans are
wise they will make him a United States
senator; and If so, Nebraska will have a
representative In tha senate who can and
will accomplish something. He cannot get
up and make a rip-roaring, loud-mouthed
sneech, but no man In the United States
today can put him down or out when It
comes to facts snd figures. He Is a busi
ness man, a Nebraska man., all the time
and one who haa risked hla very life In
exposing fraud and corruption, and the
republican party of Nebraska la not giving
him aomuch aa a pleasant smile for his
labors when they offer him th nomination
for United States senator.
Gives Geaalae SatUtaettoa.
Hartlngton Herald (Rep.).
It waa with genuine satisfaction that the
people of this part of the atate received
the ncwa In Monday's Omaha Bee that Its
distinguished editor would be a candidate
for the republican nomination for United
States senator. When w say people wers
Paaed we mean th rank and flle of the
party the men who have at heart tbe wel
fare of this state and the republican party.
Ther never was Just such a tlms aa thla
Th. nation 1 enjoying unparalleled pros
perity, yet a great Issue has arisen which
men seriously discuss In every hamlet. Th
question Is, shall the government control
th corporations or shall the corporations
control th government? That struggle 1
now going on In th national congress, and
at the front in th contest for th govern
ment to control th corporation I Theo
dore Roosevelt. It Is a great contest for
supremacy and the people know that the
corporations will exert every Influence at
their command to check remedial legisla
tion or make Ineffective what they cannot
check. The republicans of Nebraska can
da much to further or retard this contest
th president Is making- for the people by
the ktnd of a man they endorse for the,
senate at the state convention In August.
Knowing the man .through years and years
of struggle against corporate Influence
ther Is throughout th stats a growing
sentiment that Edward Rosewater be
ohosen for this pises. This sentiment
eomes from a knowledge that he Is a man
who eaa be depended upon la any emer
gency. Th people know where be stands
on every public question and tbey have
confidence that, as In the past hs would
keep at the forefront on every Issue that
eomes up In behalf of tha people. Not
only thla. but hla knowledge of the needs
of the people he would represent Is brosder
than moat any other man la Nebraska, If
Mr. Roaewater secures the endorsement of
the republican stats convention M will be
because the rank and file of the party insist
on It and it caa be depended oa he will
not nor would not go to the senate under
obligations to any man or to aay retain.

In the opinion of the Times, if the belief

Mr. Roaewater can have In the legislature
a delegation from Douglas county which
will do battle for him. nothing can stay the

of past differences, recognise In him the

Elsewhere In this Issue we reproduce
the announcement of Edward Rosewater
of Omaha for United States senator. Thla
move on the part of the pioneer reformer
Is the bent thing that has happened to Ne

not an unknown quantity, and If we can
elect him senator the state will have a
representative that will atand well at the

Oerlng Courier (rep.).
It Is announced that Edward Rosewater
Is a candidate for the United States senate,
and, while the western section of the state
la somewhat committed to the candidacy of
Norrls Brown, it la likewise sure that If any
one haa a Arm enough hold upon the hearts
of the people to give a prospect of success
It Is the veteran editor of The Bee. If he
were not abroad at this time we fancy his
candidacy would cut a atlll greater figure,
even In thla part of Nebraska, for he la
atronger In the atate at large than In
Omaha. As a senator he would be a potent
factor, not In the least of the-milk and
Has Accomplished Things.'
Wayne Herald (rep.). .
Edward Rosewater, veteran editor' of The
Omaha Bee, Is. now In the race for the
United States senate In earnest and. pro
poses to make a vigorous contest for the
place.' Mr. Rosewater'a active career sa
editor of Nebraska's leading dally paper
since 18T1 has aroused opposition,, at one
time or another, and he will have a string
of enemlea to contend against. Any strenu
ous life that bas accomplished thlnga meets
more or less antagonism, and that la the
case with Mr. Rosewater.. That he has al
ways fought to . regulate . corporations and
restrict the power of wealth, and that he
would ably . and fearlessly represent the
atate at Washington, people well know:
Whether he can seeure the nomination or
not time will tell. He will at least put up
a fight that will make Norrls Brown's boom
leas certain of carrying the state by storm.
Views Approve by the People,
Franklin Free Press (rep.).
All the newspapers of the state were not
captured by tbe brass band tactics of the
press bureau which was booming Attorney
General Norrls Brown for United Statea
senator, and many of the Independent
thinkers among the balance of the republi
can editors are commenting favorably upon
the candidacy of Editor Rosewater of The
Omaha Bee, who is now In ancient Rome
attending the International Postal congress.
A few years ago Roaewater waa put down
as a traitor to his party because he woulft
not support ths entire republican ticket,
but he has outlived that and today Is on-i
of the braineat, most thoroughly inde
pendent and experienced of all the card!
datea so far mentioned and his views on
the leading Isauea of the day are well
known and approved by the people.
He Biased the Way.
Burchard Tlmea (rep.).
Edward Rosewater la now actively In the
race for tbe United Statea aenatorshlp to
succeed Senator Millard. Thla decision on
the part of Mr. Rosewater's friends has had
the effect of temporarily complicating mat
ters, for many of the newspapers through-:
out th stats, which havs been saying com
plimentary things about Attorney General
Brown, feel that they cannot consistently
desert his' cause now and give support to
ths new candidate.
And yet, the Times believes that Edward
Rosewater Is entitled, not only to ths en
thusiastic support of the republican press
of the tat. but also to th rraternal "god
speed" of those of opposite political faith.
Thoae of us who have spent years In the
editorial harness and have directed the
course of newspapers In city and country
know that sound Judgment without "back

Journalistic boneyard for any Brest length

of fighting for the people's Interest, and

ASSURED SUPPORT FROM OTHER COUNTIES
No Case of Misrepresentation.
Blue Springs Sentinel (rep.).
The active candidacy of Edward Roae
water for United Statea senator will make
aome of the other fellowa hustle. There la
one thing about Mr. Rosewater, he la ac
tivemighty active especially for his
enemies. The state would not bs misrepre
sented with him In the senate.
' Represents tho Coannaoa People.
Carleton Leader (rep.).
Edward Rosewater of The Bee haa an
nounced himself aa a candidate for the
United Statea senate. While it Is generally
sdmltted throughout the state that Rose
water would make a No. ,1 senator, we
doubt "very much whether his candidacy
will be taken aeriously. . At thla time the
chances are very much against an Omaha
man capturing that office for the next six
years. But If It should be Rosewater the
common people will have a representative.
Well Quallae for It.
Trenton Republican-Leader (rep.).
There In no question but that Mr. Rose
water is the Intellectual peer of any man
yet spoken of in connection with senatorial
honors, and It la In accord with the eternal
fitness of things that there should be but
a step from the editorial desk to the senate
chamber. The molder of public opinion is
certainly well qualified to make laws, which
are, after all, only the condensed expres
sion of the opinions and will of the people.
If the senatorial toga la to be worn by an
Omaha man, by whom could the weight of
its folds be more gracefully bornJMhan by
Fittlag Trlhate to Party ierrlce.
O'Neill Frontier (rep.).
Th Frontier haa repeatedly 1 atated its
belief that Editor Rosewater waa the beat
equipped, all-around man in the atate to
send to the senate and the logical candi
date cf the republican party. The position
the party takes. Its endorsement of the
national administration and demand for na
tional control and limitation of corpora
tions, it cannot consiatently nominate any
other than a candidate of the Roaewater
stripe. And, Inasmuch aa he is admittedly
the ablest man in the bunch of aspirants.
It would be a fitting tribute for long years
of service to the party and state to honor
Mr. Roaewater with a seat In the senate.
With Roosevelt oa Bis; Qaestloaa.
Belden Progress (rep.).
Edward Rosewater of The Omaha Bee haa
come out aa a candidate for United Statea
senator. The Progress believes he would be
a good man for the place and would receive
the support of tbe party If nominated. He
has spent most of his life fighting the cor
porations, and la, we believe. In a better
position to know what should or should not
be done than any man In the party. He la
with Roosevelt on all questlona of Im
portance and hla' vote would alwaya be for
the light. If he la nominated he will make
good, and graft will be suppressed where It
is In his power to suppress It. The dele
gates to the stats convention would act
wisely in giving him the nomination.
The Maa far th Eeaergreaeyv
Plainvlew Republican (rep.).
Just now the eyes of ths people are
turned toward the United States senate.
That body acts as If charmed by railroad
and corporate magnates. The rate bill as
it passed the house cannot go through the
senate without an amendment In the form
of a compromise. A great political- up
heaval la going on all over tbe country.
The voice of the people la heard demand
ing senator free from corporate Influences.
Such a demand Is fortunate for Rosewater.
That valiant old fighter Is certainly the
i man for the un.ergency. His record along
i r.rirett lines '. k!T that Is required to make
him popular. He In In full sympathy with
the prmniit Adnvjnistration and were he
in tlje gvmtite at tWn moment he would
kxj strlljlng telling Jvluws for the rate bill.
Rovewiuer eutmles, It la true, but
whon.t'hey ppr ti: will be hard to con
tlnce the puW.c that they are not labor
ing fur the corporations. Being a candi
date is a question whether the republican
party dare turn down such a man at this
time. It cannot afford to do It. There Is
a demand for such a man as he la In the
senate and, regardless of party, the people
will rally about him as their foremost
champion of their rights. For the good
of the party wo would like to see all
the other ambitious candidates clear the
track for Roeewater and) If any aolmpfclty
exlats swallow It for th futur welfar
of their party.

Genoa Time (rep.).
Edward Roaewater' candidacy for
United State senator is entitled to re
spectful consideration of the republican
pre of th tat. Tears ago The Omaha
Bee was the advance agent among the
newspapera of Nebraska for reforms now
demanded by republican voters and th",
republican press and tha attempt to class
Edward Rosewater with the railway poli
ticians Is easily refuted by the file of
The Bee from the date It was first pub
lished down to the present time. The
atatement which Rosewater'a entrancs into
ths senatorial race haa brought forth,
that he waa the candidate of the railways
for senator alx yeara ago la only an echo
of the charge made by the fualon prase
at the time, which aome republican paper,
oppoaed to The Bee editor, are now using
against him. It waa the railway poll
tlclana who defeated Rosewater In the
contest six years ago and sent Millard and
Dietrich to the senate. The fact that Roae
water haa In aome Instances refused 10
support unscrupulous candidates nomi
nated by hla party, doea not make him a
populist. Hla refusal to put the stamp of
endorsement upon objectionable men Is
more to Rosewater's credit than to bis dis
credit. He haa never been a yellow dog
republican or a yellow dog editor, and for
thla reason Is cordially hated by the yel
log dog politicians, the fellows who place
greed above principle and trickery and dis
honesty above loyalty to a public trust.
While Norrls Brows Is the writer first
choice for senator, the Times has- no
stones to throw at Edward Rosewater. It
believes ia giving tha old man a square
Bralaa vs. Boodls.
Edward Rosewater will have a herd fight
to land himself in the United States senate.
Mr. Roeewater haa edited a paper in Ne
braska so long that he knows the tricks of
the corporations and If elected would be
In a position to checkmate some of their
moves In the plundering of the public.
Therefore, he will hsve the battle of his
life this fall. In the coming contest It will
be brains vs. boodle and In fights of this
kind brains sometlmea win.
Chances Are Good.
Emerson (enterprise (rep.).
Mr. Rosewater Is one of the best known
and best Informed men in Nebraska and
all admit that he Is well qualified for the
high position of United States senator.
He has many friends throughout the state
who would like to see htm elected and
aome enemlea who would work persistently
to defeat him. It appears now that his
election depends largely upon Omaha. If
he gets the united support of the metrop
olis his chance are good.
Volaatary Offer of Rapport.
'Mullen Tribune (rep).
Norrls Brown la prominently before the
people for the aenatorshlp, all right, but
we want It understood that the Tribune
did not contribute one line toward putting
him there. Although our office haa been
flooded with "atuff" ground oat at "party
headquarters" In Lincoln saying many
nice thlnga about Mr. Brown we refrained
from biting. There la no honor In that
sort of politics and for that reason, after
careful consideration, the Tribune hereby
tenders its warm support to Edward Roee
Corporations Woald Kot Baa Him.
Red Cloud Advertiser (rep.).
Edward Roaewater la surely elected
United States senator. If the republican
newapaper talk is able to do ao. Thla paper
wouta rather see him senator than any
other man in the state. It Is time that we
get a few honest men In thst body, and
thus let out- a lot of coal barons, railroad
magnates snd blosted bondholders, who
have disgraced the country by their high
handed and rotten efforts to befriend the
money kings to the exclusion of .the people.
There is one thing certain, corporations
could not run Rosewster for a minute.
This paper Is not democratic, but wa would
like to see a change. -
Fltrlag Beeoajaltlaa of Services.
West Point Republican (rep.).
The Republican Is unsble to see serious
objection to hla candidacy, unless it he on
the score of age. But, though he has
reached the allotted age, he Is today at
the very senlth of his mental powers and
his friends assert with confidence that
years of active, useful citlsenshjp are atlll
before him. Edward Roaewater, through
out the many years of his Journalistic ac
tivity, dealt many telling blowa In behalf
of the republicans and republican prlncl
plea, and. should the senatorial toga be
placed upon htm by the party at the close
of his useful and honorable career, It would
be but a Juat and fitting recognition of hla
Pealtlea aa Corporations Established.
Falrmount Chronicle (rep.).
B. Roaewater has been prominent In Ne
braska politics for over thirty years, and
In that time has made many enemies and
done numerous things for which he Is cor
dially hated. . However, the 'men with
whom he differed are frank to admit that
In . ability,, experience, fearlessness and
energy he ranks first In the land, and aa
United States , senator would take and
hold a prominent position among the lead
ers of the nation's capital. His anti-
corporation principles are well established
and we predict that Rosewater will cut
much Ice In settlement ot the aenatorlal
contest In Nebraska.
Perslsteatly Aaalast Corraptloa.
Valentine Republican (rep.).
Tbe Republican has stated before that
personally there la no other man whom it
would rather aee elected United States
senator from Nebraska than E. Roaewater.
The main reasons for this opinion are
plainly aet forth in the announcement.
Tears ago he would have been elected
United Statea senator had he not made
political and corporate enemies by a con
tinued and persistent effort upon corrup
tion and domination of corporation rule.
In ths last thirty years be has been a con
sistent champion of the people In fighting
their battle, and many times expending;
much money, as well as tlms and energy,
without even taking a thought of reim
bursement. The great state of Nebraska
owes much to the Influence exerted by E.
Rosewater and now will have another op
portunity to do him honor In recognition of
bla efforts to advance tha welfare of the
Like a Book of Gibraltar.
Sutherland Free Lance (rep.).
After numerous candldatea have been
mentioned for the senatorial toga now
worn by Senator Millard,' there cornea the
announcement that Edward Rosewater,
editor of The Omaha Bee, la a candidate.
Hla la a name to conjure by In Nebraska,
for he ia a worthy representative of the
people and not a mere stock Jobber for
the corporations. A self-made man, he haa
made the moat of hla opportunities, broad
ened the mlnda of thousands through ilie
medium of The Bee, don yoeman service
for the republican party and has a rare
spirit of high minded civic pride that pre
eminently equips him for the United State,
senate. Such a man, unassailable In Lis
opinions of right, haa Incurred the bitter
enmity of political opponents, but like th
rock of Gibraltar he stands impregnable,
a typical American and the peer of those
named for the United States senatorstalp.
His work for the good of ths republican
party has ever been unceasing, oftlmes la
borious, but ever In the front rank fight
ing for tbe beat prlnclplea that obtain. Ha
deatrve a substantial reward at the hand
of tb people, and thla should b the sen
atorship. His Intimate knowledge of public,
affairs, acquaintanceship with publie men
and broad mindedneaa makes him tbe Ideal
candidate. Let H be Senator Roeewatar cf
