OMAHA, Jan. 16. To the Editor of The
Bee: In reading the announcement of Mr.
Whedon for the senatofshlp to succeed
Senator Burkett7 I was struck with the
exceedingly narrow field of his objections,
but having stated his position and reasons
for wanting the senatorshlp, I presume
he has stated all he has against Senator
Burkett. His position Isbasfd solely on
the vote enacting the last tariff law and he
says that if Senator uBrkett can tell a good
reason why he supported that measure,
Mr. Whedon will withdraw In favor of
Some weeks ago I wrote a humorous
letter to a friend In Iowa who savors
strongly of the progressive faction and
called his attention to the happy situation
of a Nebraska republican on the stormy
and rocky waters of the tariff act. Having
no central strong leader on whom wa In
Nebraska could center In our tariff dis
tress and contentions, were were exceed
ingly happy that Just at the time when
contention would tear . our party and polit
ical characters would go down In disaster,
the Nebraska state convention met in Lin
coln and realizing that President Taft was
tolling with the adverse forces of greed to
get as favorable a tariff act as possible,
so to keep the promises of the party, the
state convention eulogized President Taft
exceedingly and turned over to him the
cause of tariff reform, telling him that
Nebraska would gratefully abide with his
determination, and that he could sign or
veto, resting assured that Nebraska would
be content with his success or failure with
the adverse forces. Senators Burkett and
Brown.were Ignored by this convention,
and speaking for. tha party, full authority
was given ' to ' President Taft. Now, the
friends of reform are after what the people
demand, and with this voice of the party
given to President Taft by the state con
vention, our Senator Burkett could only
ascertain what President Taft desired and
vote accordingly. As Senator Burkett
voted as President Taft desired no one
doubts, and that President Taft acted 'the
best he could forthe lower tariff no ona
doubts. . rS,
It Js not altogether of the highest patriot-
Ism er the highest ideal of the duties of a
United States senator to vote and act
solely In the Interests of his state, but that
baing Mr. Whedon's position he certainly
must see that Senator Burkett Is Justified
JAMES H. MACOMBER.
Bee: Why not call attention forcibly to
the great opportunity the Park board Is
overlooking In fulling to ' have that new
northwest boulevard go directly by the
Deaf and Dumb institute?
A state Institution can be made beautiful
and attractive or otherwise, but some step
must be taken by the city having the loca
tion to show a disposition to help. If we
swing that new boulevard directly along
the Institute grounds we will stir the state
to aid In making It a beauty spot. Instance
the similar place in Council Bluffs. 'Than
from the Institute grounds swing up over
high ground about Thirty-seventh street
(all corn ground now), for the property
can never be bought cheaper than this year
and next. .
Even If the Park board has not enough
money this year, wait a year or two, and
thus get something on your boulevards.
No better view In the whole city than from
high poln of Boulevard avenue east of
Institute. Men like Cornish and Berryman
and Adams ought not to make the irre
parable mistake of leaving this' ona fine
state Institution, with Immense future pos
sibilities, cut off the line of that new
boulevard while land la cheap. It will be
a great blunder. LOOK AHEAD.
