And yet these men are needed by hu

takes a man who knows that he must
deal with men as they are and not . with

genius of Washington, the Iron band or
Jackson, the political craft of Lincoln and
the human quality of them all It
such a man to get thone things done
that ths people want done, to realisa
American Ideals and write Into workablo
laws needed reforms, to build Into real
structures the peoples thoughts, to se
cure bv something more than words an I
preachments the peoole'a rights.
And such a man is he who in five Jl'""
has got more things done for the peopl a
good than even Mr. Bryan's fertile brain
ever thought of; who has accomplished
more reforms than were ever wrought In
the same time In our history: who Is th'j
moment In the midst of the mighty work
the people have given him to do. and who
today with strength. Justice und right
eousness Is leading the American peo
ple onward to a fuller practical realisa
tion of their hopes, the president of the
American people of all the American
people Theodore Roosevelt.
Why Roosevelt Does Thtnrs.
Theodore Roosevelt lias been able to do
what ha haa done because, like Mr. Bryan,
he Is an idealist, but. unlike Mr. Bryan,
he Is a man of affairs; because he ha
courage as high as Nebraska's gieat radi
cal, a conscience as sensitive, but a skill
ami experience with men that enables him
to use for the people's good the qualltiea
of human nature aa he finds them; and
a wisdom which compounds for the wel
fare of the people not only the strength,
but also the defects of those with whom
he works. .
Mr. Bryan Is never satisfied with tha
stones that he finds on the river's bank
he insists that they shall be perfectly cut
and rollhed for his sling. Thevdore
Roosevelt takes the stones he finds on
the river's banks, fits them to his sling
and Slavs his Goliath. Mr. Bryan Insists
that the stones shall be made for his
sling: Mr. Roosevelt knows that his sling
waa made for the stones. So one Is al
ways hunting ammunition; the other is
always using It.
It is Just the differences between the
dreamer and the achiever. Both are nec
essary, both pure, both devoted to the re
public. But one Is the administrator; the
other Is the objector.
Addressing himself to the subject of
government ownership. Senator Beverldgi
Government ownership is wrong be
cause it Is not a principle which can be
applied to all Industry, which, like the
railways, affect all ihe peoplo; govern
ment supervision is right because it does
apply to all industries, which, like the
railways, ir so great that they affect all
Government ownership Is wrong beeauv
It vlolatea the American principle of In
dividual management of business; govern
ment supervision is right because It rec
ognises that principle, but makes that in
dividual management a public trust.
Government ownership Is wrong be
cause It is fatal to Individual Initiative
government supervision Is right becauso
it preserves Individual Initiative, but pro
vents Individual abures.
Government ownership is wrong be
cause it Is antagonistic to the spirit of
our race; government supervision la right
because It Is harmonious with tha sp.iu
of our race.
Government ownership is wrong ani
government supervision Is rlsrh' ,
one tsfces business out of th) hands of
the textile and the other leaves uusine .
In the nands of the people and yet pre

Th'i Railways la Polities.
Government ownership Is urged because
It will take the railways out of politic.
But so docs government supervision take
them out of politics. The day ot railroad
and corporate power In American . poli
tics Is drawing to Its close. The con
science of the millions Is ending rallroai

LINCOLN. Oct. 4. (Special.) The names
of the candidates for United Statca senator j with a shipment of cattle. While walking
must be printed on the official ballot this ; through the Union Pacific yards at night
year. Governor Mickey has so Indicated in ; ho w.is struck by a train backing over
his election proclamation Issued today. Eec- j a crossing, knocked down and run over,
retary of State Galusha has bo detcrmlnted The company was charged with negllg.'ii.v
and Deputy Attorney General W. T. In not displaying a light on the rear end
Thompson has so decided. The governor
relies on section 3il. Wheeler's statute
1905, which sass the electors shall
by ballot express their proference
for United States senator. The con
stitution of the state. In propositions
separately submitted nud adopted, says that
the lcg.slature.may provide that the electors
"may by ballot exp.ress their preference for
some person for United States senator."
The legislature hue done this In tie section
referred to. Another section of the election
laws says the form of the ballot shall con
form as nearly as possible to ths form
printed in the election jaws. This printed
form contains a place for candidates for
the United States senate. So it Is thought
that the secretary of state can be
mandamused to place ' the names of the
candidates on his certificate to county
clerks. Norrls Brown, republican; W. H.
Thompson, democrat; and J. P. Roe,
socialUt; have been certified by th'ir respec
tive state conventions as being recom
mended as such candidates and their names
Will go on the ballot. If the county clerks
carry out ths wishes of the secretary of
state. All parties concerned are willing to
comply with the law.
The state officers snd congressmen are
enumerated in the proclamation, the sena
tors snd representatives to the legislature
and one Judge of the First Judicial district.
In that district Judge John B. Raper of

Judgment Is affirmed. The opinion sus
taining it is unanimous among Commis
sioners Albert, Jackson and Duffle. The
damages were allowed Connolly for the
loss of his legs under the wheels of a
train at South Omaha In the month of
August, U2. ,
Connolly Is a stockman, living In Wy
oming, and had gonu to South OmaiTa
of the twin, falling to give any otiier
warning signal and having no watchman
stationed at the crossing. The case wtr
removed to federal court before trlnl.
but afterward! remanded to the district
court of Douglas county.
The regularity of the verdict was at
tacked by the Union Pacific for s pe
culiar reason. This was that the verdlc.
as first returned did not apply one way
or the other as to Elmer E. Fair, en
gineer of the train, who had been lnsd,
a Joint defendant. The foreman of th
Jury afterwards handed In a verdict in
Fair's favor, but it Is rlnlmed this w.11
after the Jury had been discharged. Oi
that account the Union Pacific maintained
that the whole verdict waa Invalid. Or.
this point the supreme court holds that
the eiror, If sny, is waived.
The court declares that a verdict of
irr.WO for th loss, of both legs Is not
excessive. This wss one of the hardest
fought points in the whole rase.

ST. LOUIS. Oct. 4.-The astonishing salt
ot Cooper's preparations In this city hat
now reached such Immense figures that tht
medical fraternity at large have becomt
torced Into open discussion of ths man and
The physicians, as a whole, seem to be
divided with regard to the young man's
success In St. Louis some bwlng willing tt
credit him for what he has accomplished,
wiille others ansert that the Interest he hat
aroused Is but a passing fad which cannot
,ast and which will die out as. quickly as
It has sprung up.
The opinion of these two factions Is very
well voiced In the statement made recently
by two of a number or physicians who
were Interviewed on the subject. ' 11 ' '
Dr. J. E. Carass, when questioned about
the matter, said: "I have not been a be
liever In proprietary preparations herelo
fore, nor can I say that I believe In them
it present. But I mnst admit that soma
of the facts recently brought to my notice
concerning this man Cooper have gone far
towards removing the prejudice I had
formed against him when ths unheard of
demand for the preparations first sprang up
in this city.
"Numbers of my pstlents whom I have
treated for chronic live:, kidney and
stomach troubles have met me after tak
ing Cooper's remedies and have stated
positively that hs has accomplished wonder
ful results for them. I notice particularly

better name I might call it 'Cooper-mania.'
Ths people of St. Louis seem t ba firm
In the belief that this man Cooper has
health corked up In a bottle.
"80ms of them Imagine thst he has com

from their statements. It Is beyond ro
to say why the city has gone crasy over
ths man. It may be safely put down. I

"Sooner or later tha people are bouno.

that' a reputable physician Is ths one to
whom their health had bast be entrusted."
In the meantime Cooper meets several
thousand people dally, and only smiles
when statements of ths sbovs character are
quoted to hlrn. His charitable work still
continues to be very extensive.
