Cady for OoTernor. .
The candidacy of A. E.- Cady for the
republican nomination for . governor
ought to appeal with special force to
Nebraska republicans at this particu
lar time. There la no question tbat
with- a candidate afthe bead of the
state ticket of vigor and force , com
manding the confidence ot the penplj
by bis own record and personality. Ne
braska can -be wholly redeemed from
democratic rule at the coming election.
Mr. Cady la ocie of the strongest
characters among our, public men. lie
is a pioneer of Nebraska who- bas con
tributed to Its upbuilding for more
than a third of a century, a successful
business man respected and admired
by all who kno him. He has served
the people in the legislature more than
once and has never been found want
ing. He has responded to every call
of his party. He worked In the har
ness as chairman of the state commit
tee which conducted the successful
campaign that kept Nebraska in the
republican column in 1892. ' M
Aa state senator in 1905 Mr. Cady
sponsored the constitutional amend
ment for a state railway commission,
without which the reform measures
enacted by the subsequent republican
legislature could not ' have materi
alized. On the liquor question he has
stated his position plainly: that while
he personally believes the . present
local option law adequate, , be would
as executive to obstruct
the enactment by the legislature of a
bill changing the option unit. .. He has
always stood for clean government and
against graft and official corruption
and has never let anyone doubt his
uncompromising attitude toward pub
On national questions Mr. Cady bas
been outspoken for the Roosevelt-Taft
policies and is in thorough accord with
the reform program put through by
congress to carry out the recommenda

candidate behind whom all the repub

Johrl G. .Woolley, the former pro
hibition leader 'in this country, once
said he would call wrong wrong wher
ever be found it, "in bell, Halifax,
Norway or New York." But Mr. Bryan
Is a versatile politician. It will not
cost blm the least exertion to stretch
his oratory to fit both cases at one and
the same time. He can jump from a
prohibition platform in Lincoln tb an
antl-prohibltlon rostrum in Des Moines
without missing a word, or seriously
discommoding his argument. It will
not be the first time Mr. Bryan has
run a two-ring circus.' It will cause
him no more difficulty than It caused
him in 1904 to stump half the country
for Judge Parker, whom he had vllll-
fied and denounced as a tool of the
money power before his nomination at
St. Louis; no more difficulty than It
caused him to preach free silver as the
paramount Issue, '.'which is never set
tled until settled right," in 1896; im
perialism as the chief bugaboo in
1900, and government ownership in
1906; the trusts In 1908. An- man
who could go to Washington and urge
the democratic senators into voting
for the Paris treaty, and then go out
on the stump in the succeeding cam
paign and denounce as republican per
fidy tbat treaty which eould never
have been consummated but for votes
delivered by his influence any man
who could make such quick turns as
these, will have no difficulty whatever

Fewer Deaths on Bailroadi.
Only 253 passengers of railroad
trains were killed during the year
ended June 30, as compared to 381
the year previous. This is still too
many, but the reduction is great and
It is encouraging, for it not only shows
what can be done in the way of pro
tecting the lives of people who ride on
railroads, but It also Illustrates the
fact that railroads are making a faith
ful effort In that drectlon.
The public and the government have
been holding up 'to "the American rail
roads the small number: of deaths on
European lines and demanding an Im
provement. The effect has been whole
some. Our lines have not yet reached
the low list of the continental roads,
but they will very soon at the present
rate of reduction. It Is apparently true
that the big railroad managements In
this country today are more deeply
concerned In the ways and means of
controlling speed than of attaining it,
and the problem before them Is, not
so much how to facilitate the quick
delivery of passenger and freight, as
how to make the conveyance of its
human traffic safe and secure.
Toward attaining this end millions
are being expended In modern devices,
and. In this, as in 'Other departments
-of railroad srvlo,. weotern lines take
a leading part. The Union Pacific bas
perhaps done more with its wonderful
block signal system to revolutionize
this movement than any other line,
and it has aroused among all roads a
healthy rivalry for the protection of
Still the railways have a long
stretch before them to reach what
they should. Last year, while only 263
passengers were killed, 4,944 trespas
sers met death and 3,625 employes.
The roads probably should not be held
accountable for the deaths of the tres
passers, but they are responsible In
some measure, at least, for the safety
of their employes. It is another
wholesome sign, however, that they
seem to appreciate this fact and are
endeavoring to take care of it.
Another Six Million Acres.
Secretary Wilson of the Department
of Agriculture says the government
has decided to take 6,000,000 acres of
land out of the forest reserves In the
mountain sections and convert them
into homesteads, adding: "But we
are not going to get a man a home
stead upon which to start a lumber
And that is the keynote precisely.
Homesteads are not for the speculator,
nor for the man looking for a chance
to use the land for other than a home
and the government can do no better
service to the real homeseeker than
by standing squarely on Its original
purpose as thus expressed by Secretary
Wilson. ' '
Several western states with large
forest reserves have for a long time
urged the president to set aside such
part of them for homesteads as could
be used for cultivation. The demand
sprang from legitimate and reasonable
conditions, first of which was the need
for more homestead entries, and the
government bas fully satisfied itself
of the justice of it. Moreover, the oc
cupation 'of this land, on which valu
able crops may be raised, will increase
the taxable area and lighten, the tax
burden on all the people In these
states by bringing more in to produce
new wealth and greater revenue. In
stead of destroying or impairing the
forests in these reserves, the system of
habitation will have precisely the op
posite effect, for It will create land
breaks across which fire will not be
so likely to travel and will place the
homesteaders there as constant pro
tectors of the forests.
It has not been stated bow this
6,000,000 acres of land is to be al
lotted to the homesteaders, but if on a
half section basis, it will give . to
18,760 families each a tract of 320
acres, while if it is to go in quarters
it will bring in 37,600 new settlers,
or, rather, that many households, with
160 acres apiece. In either case it
represents another tremendous stride
toward the peopling and development
of ine west. 3
Congressman Hitchcock's official or
gan reproduces an article from Col
lier's Weekly knocking on Senator
Burkett for enumerating the things he

reason for his retention at Washing

Writing to an eastern paper on thl
county option issue, Editor Dobbins of
the Lincoln News has this to say: '
Aa the governor's part in legislation
relate only to attaching his approval or
disapproval, the question will, In fact,' be
sent to the legislative districts for settle
ment. That is exactly what The Bee has
been -contending all along, and if so,
no one's republicanism cart be deter
mined by his Bupport of or opposition

There is no good reason why the

farm and range into finished articles
for general consumption.

cratlc sourees speaks for itself.
The redoubtable "Jerry" Howard,

command helped enact the so-called

a great success If he did not have to
compete with the bunch of grafters
with whom he was associated at Lincoln.

Privileges Ilefuaed at Home Qraated
The accomplishments of a parcel post
agreement with Hungary tenda to force the
same Issue at .home. People naturally ask
why it is that eleven pounds of merchan
dise can go by mall to a foreign country,
while only fpyr jpounds will be taken by
the same agency. for transmission betwoen
cities here; and further, why the long dis
tance mail should1 ie carried at the rate
of 13 cents a pound, while 16 cents is the
home rate. Of course it is a Very long story.
The government goes into these foreign
arrangements, n pat, because of Its obli
gation' aa amjrnjer of the Postal Union,
while It abstains from ' granting the same
prlvHegpaa. at home because It haa not yet,
seen fit to take over the express business,1
as any . extensive popularisation pf the
parcels post idea would do. Good argu
ments may be made on both sides of this
project; but most people would clearly like
to see the government take up this work.

In the footsteps of the men who dominated
Indiana in the days of its democratic In
