Overplaying Their Hand.
It wag to be eiperted tht
brewers and liquor dealers
fight back against any proposal like
county option, which they regard as
Injurious to their Interests.
It was to be expected that they
would leave no stone unturned to get
a wet legislature, and perhaps they
have a right to regard It equally a
measure of self-defense to elect a gov
ernor who will veto every county op
tion bill for them If they fall down In
the legislature. -
But the brewers and liquor dealers
are playing their band pretty strong
In Nebraska when they go beyond this
and undertake with their money and
hirelings to el?ct a United States sen
ator who has nothing to do with
county option one way or the other.
It should be known far and wide
that the brewers and liquor dealers
through their subsidiary organization,
known as the German-American Al
liance, have put Gilbert M, Hitchcock,
democratic candidate for t'nltetl States
senator lit with Mayor "Jim," their
preferred candidate for governor.
With their money they are buying
space In foreign language newspapers
for paid reading matter calling upon
foreign born citizens to vote for
Hitchcock as "the fearless defender of
liberal policies" and accusing Senator
Burkett with 'being a prohibitionist.
They make out that Hitchcock has a
claim to the liberal vote Hitchcock,
the man who. when the big fight was
on threatening Nebraska with pro
hibition in 1890, ran away to, Ku rope

A 1912 -Prediction.
In a composite study of Taft and
Roosevelt, contributed to the Atlantic
Monthly Francis E. .Leuppwho was
commissioner of Indian affairs. under
the last administration, ventures Into
the Interesting realm of prediction as
follows: ; '. . . : .
Without pretending to lie. a prophet or
tha son of a prophet, I will stake my all
as a political . weather-observer on the
propoaition that, huwevor serious may be
their factional differences, the republi
cans will renominate President Taft In
112 If he withe It. This In nut a guess.
but a sober thesis In the, psychology of
prao.UcaJ politics. The party that has
elected Its candidate president by vouch
ing for him unconditionally to the Amer
ican people would be ashamed to.confas.
at the end of Ma term, that it bad mis
led the voUvs. - 1-ook back over -the last
fifty years. No power under heaven, ex
cept his own disinclination, could have
prevented llucoln's second nomination,
or Grant's, or Qarfleld's, If ha had lived;
or Cleveland's, or Harrison's or MoKln
ley's. As neither Johnson or Arthur had
reached the presidency by election, and
Hayes !iad publtoly deolarad that he
would not stand for a second term, their
oases are not provcasnu.
While everyone has a right to turn
prophet for himself, Mr. Leupp is an
old experienced newspaper man of
wide political experience, and when he
aays in cold type, that "The1 'Return
from Elba' fol-de-rol haa afready dis
solved into thin air from which it was
conjured, and that the 'Roosevelt for
1912' hurrah still belongs in the same
category with the familiar, abrldge-
met of Hamlet," he doubtless wants lt
understood that he did not write the
standard biography of Theodore
Roosevelt without gaining a fairly
good familiarity with the political
The High Price Bogie.
Colonel Roosevelt was .but staling
what most people know to be true in
saying that high prices were world
wide nd not a condition peculiar to
any one country; that they were caused
by the trusts in some cases and by
universal economic conditions in others
and not by the tariff. He might have
gone further and allowed from com
parative figures that certain articles
on which the new tariff law either re
duced or entirely removed duty had
gone up in price aluce that law became
effective, showing conclusively that
some power outside of the .tariff was
responsible for these prlcsg.
But tbeae things are already per
fectly patent to people who want to
understand them. This attempt to
make a political issue out of the hlgh-
cost-of-llving problem Is but the merest
trick of crafty politicians. Back ' in
1896, when the country was still under
the rule of the democrats, W. J. Bryan
wont up and down the land vocifer
ously declaring thatthe. only way to
improve conditions was to advance
prices and that the only way to ad
vance price was to elect him and bis
party in office. Today this same W.
J. Bryan Ma as loudly declaiming
against high prices and declaring that
the only hape of the people la in a gen
eral reduction of prices and that they
rn lievpr secure that until the demo-
cratg are elevated to power.
The farmer Is not alone In his proa-'
perlty. The artisan, the mechanic, the
merchant, the banker, the profeasional
man everybody has shared to some
extent In this period of unprecedented
prosperity; brought about and main
tained under continuous republican
But Mr. Bryan and other sophist
object to crediting this prosperous con
dition to the party in power. Then
why credit It with the high prices
when using them as a basis of attack?
Why not credit It with the good as well
as the bad?
Of course, intelligent men under
stand that Mr. Bryan and his demo
cratic fellow-stumpspeakera do not
mean what they say; that they are
making speeches to get office and that
when the speech-making time haa past
they will buckle down again to the
good old business of gathering In more
of that republican prosperity. The
worst thing that could befall Mr.
j Bryan would be to be taken at his
word, politically. If the country bad
done that fourteen years ago, he would
not today be rated as a eeml-mlllion-air.

A Diifranchising Decision.
Judge Troup has responded favor
ably to the democratic demand that
the voting machines be used in Doug
las county in the impending election.
The democrats want the machines
used solely because they believe the
party lever will force many people to
vote the straight democratic ticket
against their will and prevent them
from voting for .the candidates of their
choice. ' The ruling of the court, there
fore, Is a disfranchising decision. It
will make the result of the election In
Douglas county, with the coercion, in
timidation and boodle of the brewery
democratic combine, represent the real
wishes of the voters still less than It
Nebraska farms have yielded $220,
000,000 in crops this year, according
to the state labor bureau's figures,
which, at least on corn, are much less
than those of other statisticians. So
this total is more likely to rise than
fall by several millions. But it is large
enough as it stands to Indicate a most
healthful condition in Nebraska and
these figures, it must be borne in mind,
do not tell near all the story. They com
prise soil products only. To be added to
these is about $175,000,000 worth of
live stock and scores of millions in
poultry, eggs, butter and milk.
So taken all round, the Nebraska
farmer ought to be able to keep the
wolf from the door for quite a while.
The state bureau suggests that the
population figures are likely to be dis
appointing, not showing as great in
crease as might be expected. Well, that

longer, they probably will produce re

the reception of large influxes of popu

its natural share of newcomers. But
it should not rest content with this
natural share. Mr. Maupln properly
suggests that its people should
"awake to the sense of their duty" in
advertising the resources and oppor
tunities of their state in an effort to
attract new population. This same ap
peal has beeu made by other state
labor commissioners and ether sources
time and time again and It should stir
us to greater action. A state with the
least percentage of illiteracy and the
greatest per capita tax and hundreds of
other similarly strong points should
not want for the substauce on which
to build a olld campaign of rational
publicity. We have the soil, the cli

The last bunch of democratic dis
reputables sent to the legislature from
Douglas county did more damage in
three months to Omaha's friendly re
lations with the country than can be
repaired by three years of Ak-Sar-Ren
entertainments and Commercial
club trade excursions. One set-back
of that kind ought to be enough for
some time to come.
"Tom" Tibbies complains that the
letter of Chairman Manuel advising
populists to vote for Aldrlch for gov
ernor Is not authorized by the populist
state committee. Tibbies' apologies
for Hitchcock sharing the Bartley
loot, which he once so loudly de
nounced, are not authorized either.
The democratic machine will have
the help of the voting machine, and
yet that ought to make every voter
all the more determined to record
himself for his preferred candidates

required to do so.

Congressman Hitchcock has written
a personal letter soliciting votes ad
dressed "Dear Mr. Rosewater." But
we decline to come across Into the
"Dear Bartley" class.
Every reason urged by Mr. Bryan
In behalf of democratic candidates for
congress is a reason why republicans
should vote for republican nominees.

The other night, dining real cut-upplahly
before theater time In a New Tork res
taurant, these eyes beheld a singular spec
tacle. It was that of a lovely young creature,
diessed within about a quarter of .an Inch
of her life, being carried out of tha res
taurant in the arms of her fat and puffy
presumable husband, carried right across
the sidewalk after tha rtstaurant was lert
behind and tenderly deposited In tha
bosom of a watting automobile.
Twas a curious sight for asveral rea
sons. That Bappno number, you see, is
not often pulled off even In New York res
taurants, where many things "go" that
go not elsewhere. Moreover, the acrump
tuously dressed young creature did not
look 111. On the contrary, she wore a dis
tinctly sheepish expression of face as. In
the clutch of the fat, presumable spouae.
she was carried out through the lanes of
tables. 1 ,
Why, then,, was she being carried out
of the restaurant In the arms of the adi
The question was answered when the

wettuchy evening slippers in hla hand.
Tha head waiter accompanied carrier and
cartird to the automobile and handed In
the foolish little slippers.
Thus was the question answered. The
poor little thing, you understand, bad,
after seating herself at a table, eased off
those dolly looking slippers to give her
tootsies Just a minute's surcease of misery.
The allppsrs wercn much more than
three or four sixes too diminutlvs for her,
but even at that they hurt her feet, and
so, with such furtiveness as women shuck
ing themselves of shoes under tho restau
rant table know how to use, she had per
formed that little act, to her no doubt pro
found relief, comfort and assuagement
during the meal.
What w'oa was hero nobody shall ever
know when shs found at the termination
i nt the meal that not only could aha not
j return her footomo to tho shelter of the
slippers, on account of their swolienness,
but that her feet were so numb and sore
that ahe couldn't even stand up on them,
much less walk, even without the Incasing
shoes. And so there was nothing to be
dona except for the male of embonpolntlsh
proclivities with her to pick bar up In
his fat arms and tot her to the automo
