ROOSEVELT AUD ANOTHER TERM.
Speculation so rife . Just- now as- to
whether President Roosevelt will be-
ccnit a candidate for renomlnatlon ls
unwarranted and unprofitable from
any point of view, since the time for
the party to make its ticket is two
yean- in the future. Such speculation
within republican circles, has been
stlrrulated by recent extraordinary ac-
tlvltloa pointing towards Bryan as the
democratic candidate in 1908, but
there is no reason whatever to believe
that President Roosevelt, so far as he
is concerned, has departed one hair'a
breadth from the purpose deliberately
and formally announced by him on the
eveninlg of election day in 1904, when
hla election was certainly known, to
consider the present as his second
term of office and not again to be a I
candidate. This purpose he has re-
affirmed time and again since, and in
the clearest manner within a few days,

TAFT ON THE SOLID SOCTH.
Secretary Taft's speech at Greens
boro, S. C, was in part a calm but for
cible showing of the mischief of "the
solid south." He had, indeed, no dif
ficulty in demonstrating the harm
which obstinate partisanship has
brought to that section itself, as well
as to the whole country, and the ln-
calculable good which would result

during the last quarter of a century
when the same appeal has been made.
The situation is the more extraordi
nary because the administration of
President Roosevelt has afforded
specially inviting opportunity for the
south to cast off the incubus of harm-
ful tradition and prejudice and Join
with the nroaressive and r.tnn.i

metropolis than to any other city In
Europe. The paradoxical saying, however,
presents a truth that is more or less ap-

KBBH4SKA SENATORIAL, CAMPAIGN
Strength Growlaat Out la State.
Norfolk News (rep.).
Tha victory of Edward Rosewater In
winning the fouglas county delegation's
support for Mm as t'nlted States senator,
goes a long way toward making Mr. Rose
water the man to go to Washington. It
has been all along conceded that If Mr.
Rosewater could have Douglas county, he
would stand a mighty good chance of
winning the nomination In case the con
vention nominates and the election. The
vletory In his home county ls all the more
endorsement for Mr. Rosewster, In view of
(he fact that he was most bitterly opposed
by an organised crowd of enemies, who ex
erted strenuous efforts to beat him. The re
sult of the primaries must be a discouraging
factor to other senatorial candidates In
the state, for with his own large delega
tion to back him, together with the support
of a large portion. of the state, Mr. Rose-
water Is the biggest man on the senatorial
horizon Just now. And It Is an easily ap
parent fact that his strength Is growing
out In the state among people who, with
out personal feeling one way or an
other, believe him to be as large a man
as Nebraska could find for tha senate.

Who Can Serve Nebraska Beatf
Weeping Water Republican (rep).
The editor of The Omaha Bee, E. Rose-
water, has returned home, and will doubt
less get active In politics. If he secures
the Douglss county delegation he will
have back of him a great factor In the
convention; It Rosewater succeeds In
going to the state convention with the sup
port of his home county and city, it will
prove that, although he has figured in
politics these many years, defeated and
made candidates for office, fought graft.
unscrupulous corporations, and made ene
mles ss well as friends, yet the fact stands
out as bold as the light of day that when
It comes to the best fitted man In Omaha,
In all Nebraska, for United States sena
tor, E. Rosewater Is the choice, and
Omaha cltlsens are willing to overlook all
grievances In order to secure a represent
ative who will represent the state tha
very best. Rosewater commenced talking
more than twenty-five years ago just such
vital questions of legislation as nre pre
sented to the people today. He has been
ahead of the republican party In its every
move. You men who Imagine you have
a grievance against Rosewater have only
to take a look back over The Dee to And
where he has been on the questions con
cerning the people. With some republi
cans they say that Rosewater has defeated
good men for office, and yet If you coma
to Inquire you may find that these good
men were more tricky In political dodges
than Rosewater ever dared be. Just look
at the matter squarely and ask yourself
the question, "Who can serve Nebraska
best In congress as our United 1 States
senator?" and we believe you will give
Rosewater credit for being that man. The
Herald will willingly support Norrls
Brown for the office If the convention so
decides, but. until that time we are go
ing to try for the ablest man first; for
the man who la known outside of his state
and the United States; for the man who
has often been selected by the presidents
of the United States to do things, and
does them; for an editor who has for years
fought for the principles that are so vital
to the republican party today. Rosewater,
Pollard and Sheldon are good enough for
us; aft working In the same direction. For
United States senator, congressman and
governor, remember these three.
Stratearr that Overreached Itself.
Nebraska Politician (rep.).
The overwhelming victory of the Rose-
water forces in the Douglaa county pri
maries the other day, while not wholly
unexpected, comes as a partial surprise to
those who have been watching the man
euvers of Mr. Rosewaters enemies in
their efforts to so complicate the primary
ballot as to make It Impossible to select
a straight delegation In the Interest of
any single candidate. Mr. Rosewater has
dabbled some In politics for several years
paat and his opponents may get some
valuable pointers on how the game Is
played by watching - closely the move
ments of the editor.
People I.Ike Fair Play.
Nebraska Politician (rep.).
One strong factor which greatly aided tha
Rosewater forces In the recent Omaha pri
maries was the disgust aroused In the
minds of those disposed to be fair by the
tactics employed In the attempted defeat
of the editor's senatorial ambitions. This
undoubtedly caused many of the better
class of cltlsens to vote for Rosewater who
otherwise would have stayed away from
tha polls primary day. It was a deserved
rebuke of underhanded methods.
. Railroads Profit ty Reform.
They are calculating tn Chicago railroad
circles that the western companies are sav
ing $1,000,000 a month from the recent aboli
tion of rebates and other recret discrim
ination, under pressure of the govern
ment' prosecutions. This does not Indi
cate that a railroad needs to be threatened
with public prosecution and punishment to
make it alive to Its own Interests. It
merely shows how much the roads have
been under the dominion of big shipping
concern. These are the real defendant.

John Lee Webater Is a conspicuous ex

gently applies himself, to the pursuit of
useful knowledge, can accomplish In the
course of a life time. Mr. Webater oc
cupies an unchallenged position at the
bar of the state and ls easily reconed as
one of the greatest living American law

nings and surrounded In youth by cir
cumstances which did not foreahadow par
ticular eminence In any purault ot life.
General Webster ha, by persistent Indus
try and constantly keeping In mind the
accomplishment of a given purpose, placed
himself In a position where he ha the
universal respect of his brethern of the
bar and charm the world with
his gift a a Jurist and a stateman.
When a young man. Mr. Webster was.
In consequence of his known ability and
aptitude In the law, made president of

served with tireless energy and great
ability, and he wa soon employed In the

COLD STORAGE EXPERIMENTS.
National Government Instltotes Im
New York Tribune.
Dr. Wiley's Investigation of the system of
cold storage ot poultry and other articles of
food Is a tlmety undertaking, in line with
the inspection, .-of meat at the packing
houses and with the Tribune recent sug
gestion that peultry might be as proper
an object of Inspection a beef or pork.
In two major respect the Inquest will be of
peculiar interest and will strongly appeal
to multitude of people to whom some
feature of the food storage business have
long seemed doubtful.
It will be of Interest, for example to
know, so far a science can ascertain and
tell, precisely what is the effect upon
article of food of long storage in the cold.
It ls well known that cold storage prevents
decomposition ot the ordinary kind. In
deed, It has been known to preserve flesh
in an apparently fresh condition for a very
long time. But It has been an open ques
tion in the mind of many whether some
other change 'may not occur tn froxen
flesh and other objects which render them
undesirable. If not directly noxious. Men
who would accept without hesitation as
perfectly fresh a fowl which had been In
cold storage for many day would look
decidedly askant at one which had been
thus kept for as many years. It would
be interesting and useful to know whether
or not frosen food doe deteriorate, and,
it it doe, at about what time.
Again, there 1 the question ' of drawn
or undrawn poultry, to which Dr Wiley is
to pay special attention. It ls an old ques
tion. For year it has been mooted. There
are market men and housewives who insist
that tha entrall of a' fowl should be re
moved as soon as it is killed, Just as are
those of a steer or a hog, and that If they
are retained for any considerable time the
entire carcass is tainted. There are others
who Insist upon the contrary, declaring
that the abdominal cavity of a fowl should
remain unopened until Just before lt Is
to be cooked. We are Inclined to think
that the majority of thoughtful people take
the former view of the case. But It will
be satisfactory to have an expert scientific
report upon lt. Such authoritative Investi
gation and control of food products will
be far more hopeful of good to the public
