Certain candidates for United States
senator who dare not appeal directly to
the people for endorsement and the
political manipulators who thrive on
legislative deadlocks are still exerting
themselves to hesd off Instructions in
the different republican county con
ventions with a view to defeating any
popular expression through state con
vention nomination, t
Thla Is evidenced enew by the let
ters being sent out In the Interest of
Senator Millard, calling upon the party
workers "In the Interest of harmony"
to send unlnstructed delegates to the
state convention at" Lincoln to be
traded off or voted by orders from
headquarters In complete disregard of
the sentiment of the rank and file at
home. The only thing "In the Interest
of harmony" for the party Is to re
spond to the universal demand that
the men who aspire to represent Ne
braska In the United .Statea senate
come out In the open and submit their
claims on their merits in the full light
of day. . 1
The effort likewise to prevent in
structions In different counties on the
plea that It Is opposed to precedent Is
equally without good basis. The re
publicans In most of the counties are
Instructing their delegates to congres
sional conventions for their preferred
candidate for congress and have long
made It a practice to do so. There is
even more reason why .they ahould In
struct for their preferred candidate for
the upper branch of congress than for
their preferred candidate for the lower
house. Members of congress corns
back every two years for a new vote
of confidence, while the people get a
chance to select their United States
senator but once every six years. The
same principle that governs Instruc
tions for congress should therefore
govern with threefold force for Instruc
tions for senator.
Republicans' everywhere must not
close their eyes to the fact that the
game of the corporation stalking horses
Is to pack the state convention with
unlnstructed delegates and thus to
relegate the senatorshlp to the legis
lative lobby or to juggle the conven
tlon choice against the candidates who
have popular backing. The only way
for the people to protect themselves
is to be on their guard at all stages of
the proceedings and not only to in
struct the messengers they send to the
state convention, but also to choose
messengers who can be depended on to
carry out the Instructions. They should
follow this up, too, by pledging their
legislative nominees to vote for the
nominee of the state convention.
According to a suggestive story that
Is well vouched for the real purpose of
the meeting between John Sharp Wil
liams, the leader on (the democratic
side of the national house; and Colonel
Bryan abroad was to deliver a mes
sage from a formidable number ,of
southern democratic leaders .to , the
effect that the south cannot be made
solid for the Nebraska statesman in
1908 if government ownership of rail
roads Is pushed to the front by him
upon his return or put into the demo
cratic platform. In the excitement of
the moment some time ago, when
there happened to be unusual clamor
for national railroad ownership by cer
tain elements whose favor and support
the colonel has had in the past, he
gave it to be understood that that pol
icy was to be part of his program. As
he Is supposed to be preparing to emit
a program in official form upon his
home-coming, It was deemed so essen
tlal that he omit the railroad owner
ship notion, so the accepted story goes
that Mr. Williams was deputed to
make known to him in advance that
the solid south would not stand for it.
Curiously enough the ostensible
ground on which protest against relt
eratlon of the Bryan ownership hint I
based Is the spates rights doctrine
solid south tenet whose praises he has
also been wont to sing, but back o
that, as Mr. Williams is privately to
make clear, la the "Jim Crow" car
practice, which under national owner
ship would collide with the federal
constitution. Upon the whole this
earnest solid south admonition is fund
amentally democratic, dealing exclu
slvely with what must "not" be done
Like practically all the advice that
emanates from democrstlc sources
this also Is negative, not positive, an
obstructive, not conservative, and th
chances therefore are that it may be
It is asserted on behalf of the Chi
cago packing plants which are engaged
in the foreign and Interstate meat
trade that they have already essen
tially compiled with most of the sani
tary requirements laid down by the
Department of Agriculture, accepting
as ineviteh'e eniorcement in the
strictest sense when the new rules go
Into effect. While this assertion is
universally credited, the very tact that
the national law. applying directly only
to establishments supplying markets
outside the state. Is to be thoroughly
carried out Is now naturally directing
public attention in Illinois and Chi
cago to the far more numerous es
tablishments supplying the local mar
ket within the state. If the elaborate
national sanitary regulations ajs nec
essary for protection of the public, but
under constitutional limitations can
be made effective only as to meats
shipped across a state's boundary, ob
viously equivalent regulations under
state authority are imperative for that
portion of the consuming -public left
unprotected by the Inspection act
passed by congress at Its last session.
It is not surprising that an agita
tion is In prog-Tea throughout the Illi
nois towns and particularly la Chicago
to secure for thsU ewt cliUeos
through state snd municipal authority
as efficient supervision over local
slaughter houses as the national leg
islation secures for citizens of other
states. The very efficiency of na
tional Inspection Immensely Increases
the necessity of state Inspection, be
cause by closing outside markets a
larger amount of improperly prepared
meats Is thrown upon the home mar
ket. Many of the municipalities are
accordingly straining to the utmost
the powers conferred upon them by
existing law, while there Is evidence
of an overwhelming public sentiment,
demanding at the earliest possible mo
ment, new state legislation, practically
duplicating the national act.
The same Influences operating in
Illinois are bound to be felt In other
states. And as one state after another
brings Its laws np to the standard es
tablished by congress, these Influences
will be felt more powerfully In the
states that have not yet taken action,
because the market still remaining un
protected will be correspondingly re
stricted. coal tAxns withdraws.
The unbiased judgment Of the coun-
ry will emphatically approve the
withdrawal, which has just been or
dered by the secretary of the Interior,
Ith the president's approval, of
,000,000 acres of workable coal land
from entry, notwithstanding the order
as been Instantly dubbed in certain
hostile quarters with the epithet "so
cialistic." Examination by the geo
logical survey discloses the fact that
altogether 58,000,000 acres of public
land, lying principally in New Mexico,
Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, North Da
kota, Montana, Oregon and Oklahoma,
contain coal deposits, but only the
6,000,000 acres withdrawn are known
to be underlaid by strata from which
coal can be profitably mined In large
quantities. The available aggregate of
this coal Is officially reported to be so
vast that the country's demand could
be supplied from It alone for an in
definite period.
The withdrawal order, therefore,
must be regarded in the light of a
great act of precaution in the interest
of the future Inhabitants of the United
States. It was made necessary by the
rapid monopolization of these coal re
sources by great corporations through
manipulation of the public land laws,
and of designs which, if the coal lands
were not withdrawn from entry, must
at no distant date absolutely vest in
these corporations the title which the
government as trustee for the nation
now holds to this invaluable heritage.
It was only by arduous effort during
the late session of congress that rail
road and other corporation plans to
acquire ownership of extensive tracts
of some of the richest of these lands
could be defeated, and their defeat
spurred them to greater effort .to ac
quire the coveted property piecemeal
by title through private entries under
the land laws.
A stake of such Incalculable value
and so eagerly played for by corporate
monopoly is well within the solicitude
of the government on behalf of the
people. Already an enormous amount
of rich coal land has been lost to
monopoly beyond recall through ad
vantage taken of the public land laws,
whose true intent certainly is not to
sacrifice so vital a public Interest to
selfish private gain. Summary with
drawal will result, as Is intended, in
putting a stop to this disastrous
process. Time, which is absolutely
necessary, will also be gained to de
termlne wisely, in the light of changed
conditions, how to dispose of these
coal lands with guarantees against
misuse. At the same time the govern
ment has only fairly begun the solu
tlon of the problem of reconciling pub
l.c Interest with the already privately
owned and worked coal deposits, espe
cially as related to transportation and
mine ownership In transportation cor
The action of the administration Is
as sagacious as it is practical, relieving
the situation at once and opening wide
the door for progressive and opportune
treatment of this vitally important
subject, and is in complete harmony
with the president's positive and
thorough-going way of dealing with
national interests.

The organization of "the Dahlman
democracy" in Omaha Is calculated to
give some of the mayor's political ene
mies the cold shivers on a hot day. It
is fair to presume that the new or
ganisation will make its debut at the
coming democratic state convention,
where it will attempt to lasso every
thing In the way of political honors
that may come within reach of the me
tiopolls and under the lead of such an
expert ropor as the Honorable "Jim"
it will have to be a fleet-footed animal
to get away.

Is Mayor James C. Dahlman of Omaha.

the only capable man In the state, he la
the only available man at this time and

such men as Judge Howard, Congressman
Shallenberger. G. M. Hitchcock, Colonel

factions antagonistic to him at previous

Roosevelt might be If he would, but he con-
tinuea firmly and consistently to stand by
his announcement of two years ago that
he would not serve another term after
the present. Aside from him there seems
to be no one In the public gase who could
be nominated with any assurance of de
feating the popular Nebraakan. Fairbanks,
Cannon. Shaw. Taft, Root and many others
are mentioned, but each has opposition In
his own party that would be likely to
handicap him In the race. Recent elections
In Oregon, Ohio, Massachusetts and else
where have shown that voters are not
standing by any party as la the past, but
that a popular man may win even though
he represents a minority party

Coaveatloa Day la Madison.
Tllden Cltlsen (rep ).
The republicans of thla county were well

tle Creek, the delegations being present In
most Instances In full strength. W. M.
Robertson was elected chairman and W. A.

Attorney General Norrls Brown. Judge
Boyd and Hon. W. W. Young were all
present and each had staunch supporters
In the convention. A resolution commend

term, was voted down. Another resolution
Instructing the congressional delegation for
Judge Boyd carried by a vote of K to 47.
Judge Boyd and Hon. W. W. Young each
delivered an earnest speech and the best
of feeling prevailed between the supporters
of the rival candidates for congress. C. A.
Randall, who aspires to represent this dis
trict In the state senate, was given the
privilege of selecting his own delegates.
The date for the senatorial convention has
not been set. and Mr. Randall will later
notify his delegates by mall of selection.
Only one name was presented for state
representative, that of Thomas Alderson,
ho Is a substantial and highly respected
farmer of Union precinct Jack Koentg-
ateln was renominated by acclamation for I
county attorney. Mr. Rosewater was
greeted with genuine applause when he ap
peared upon the rostrum and for about
three-quarters of an hour he rolled off
facts and facts and figures that kept his
audience highly Interested. He made no
ttempt at oratorical effect, but told In
plain pure English his views of govern
mental affairs and Incidentally read ex
tracts from a conference he had In 1886
with the congressional committees having
charge of the Interstate commerce bill. In
his answers to Inquiries put by the sena
tors and representatives ha suggested al
most Identically the same remedies for
controlling railroad corporations as are
now forming the bone of contention be
tween Theodore Roosevelt and his support
ers on one side and the big corporations
on the other. Attorney General Brown
followed and was respectfully listened to.
He confined himself mainly to state af
fairs. He Is a fluent speaker, fairly well
versed In matters pertaining to railroad
taxation and tax evasion In the state, but
there Is this difference between him and
Mr. Rosewater. While Norrls Brown knows
nd can express himself concerning the
Burlington and Union Pacific railroad at
tempts to escape a Just share of taxation,
Mr. Rosewater suggesta an adequate rem
edy and is well Informed on the affairs
of corporate capital in the whole nation.
Brown's Fool Friends.
Loup City Northwestern (rep.).
Norrls Brown Is all right In his desire
to be made a United States senator, but
he should call off some of his fool friends
who persuade themselves they are a part
of God's anointed, and any who fall to
see things as they do are going to the
demnition bow-wows, so to speak. Borne
time since the Northwestern had an ex
planation of Its attitude on the senatorial
question, declining to be a boomer to any
great extent, when one of the Brown salel
ites, whose initials closely resemble those
of Perkins of the St. Paul Republican, im
mediately sent a broadside Into poor us,
loaded with the stuff we have alluded to
"fdbl friendship." to the effect that we
were looking for financial recompense be
cause we did not jump into ui Brown
vehicle instanter. It Is such fool friends
that disgust the conservative element of
any party, and hurt the cause of the men
who are their political prophets. Can Nor
rls Brown expect to swim to the shining
shore with these millstones about his neck?

Some of our exchangee claim that If Mr.
Rosewater Is nominated as senator In the
state convention, a republican legislature
cannot be elected. On just what grounds
they base their claims we do not know.
Certainly not on the ground that The Bee
has failed to champion the rights and In
terests of the common people. For thirty
years The Omaha Bee has been one of the
most fearless, outspoken champions of the
people In this western country. It is true
that Mr. Rosewater has made some per
sonal enemies because he has seen fit to op
pose some candidates of the republican
narty. He has never knifed a man In the
'tick. If opposed to a nominee he has
nvarlably fought him In the open, and
as always given timely warning of his
ppoaltlon prior to' tha conventions. What
ever may be his faults. In our Judgment,
te could poll more votes In Saline county
than any other republican In the state.
