f eldom in the history of Douglas
county politics have the republicans
presented a ticket made tip as a whole
of at. good material, with candidates
of clean record and high standing,
jetullarly fitted for the respective
offices for which each has bren nom
liiatpd, while the democratic ticket
is loaded down with as sorry a lot of
Incompetents and nondescripts ai

Man for man from top to bottom
down the ticket, the democrata tan
have nothing to aay why the demo
cratic nominees should be preferred
on their own merits over their repub
lican opponents, whose superiority
they have to admit. We will com
pere and contrsst the candidates for
i different offices on the two tick

parison, by whomsoever made, will
fall to rate the republican ticket,
taken altogether, far above the demo
Knowing this, the democrats re
alise that their only possible hope
for a few crumbs of. comfort from
the Impending election lies In their
ability to foment republican disten
tion, and by falsehood, misrepresen
tation and trickery to lure ropubll
tans Into pulling the democratic lever
When they make reckless charfecs of
primary eluctlon frauds and illegal
registration, they have no sincerity
back of them. The pretense at sud
den and noisy conversion to the
cause of reform of democrats feeding
at the public crib as beneficiaries of
the very support they would- now ex
ploit, may fool others, but not them
selves. The democrats must divert atten
tion away from the weaknesses of
their own candidates, and for that
purpose they will seise upon any
faked-up side Issue, which thoy think
may aerve to promote that object.
Taft In Waihinyton State.
The St. Paul Pioneer-Press, which
has been one of the foremost antl
Taft, Insurgent papers of the west,
publishes an Interesting political
story from its Spokane correspondent,
touching on the visit of rroslile-.it
Taft to that state, hia reception and
the aentlment toward him. It ahowa,
the Pioneer-rress aaya, that Taft la
strong In Washington, a state that
has been afire, and la supposed to be
yet. with antl-Taft aentlment; the
slate of Senator Polndexter, one of
the leading La Follette promoters.
This excerpt from the St. Paul pa
per's apeclal correspondence reveala
the light that tntereata:
In aplie of all this evidence of oppo
sition to the Taft policies, there Is
every Indication that the president is
much stronger In Washington than In
any other state dominated by the pro
gressives. Senator Polndexter hag an
nounced his personal preference for
Senator La Toilette as a republican
candidate for the presidency, and vet
t hears remarkably little talk of the
Wisconsin man among the people out
side of politicians. The majority of
the business men here told the corre
spondent that they unqualifiedly approve
Taft's administration, and the majority
Of the worklngmen questioned either
commended the president or said he
ought to be given a further trial.
Mr. Taft's speech In this city patently
created a favorable effect. Ha spoke at
the fair grounds before an Immense
crowd which listened to his arguments on
half a . dosen Important questions with
noticeable Intentness. Many people told
the Pioneer-Press representative today
that the president's statements either had
removed doubts or had produced the con
viction that he ought to have a further
opportunity to carry out his plana In re
gard to the tariff, world pee.ee, conserva
tion and administrative economy.
One finds himself halting between
two questions hat President Taft,
by his straightforward methods and
gpeerheg, turned the popular tide
toward himself, or had the .illiged
unfriendliness for him been greatly
overdrawn by his critics? It is Just
possible and probable that there has
never been aa much antl-Taff sr-utl-ment

Small Sums for Lar?e Things.
Postmaster General Hitchcock will
ask congress for an appropriation of
1150,000 to defray the expenses of
Inaugurating parcels post. That
aeema like an Insignificant sum for
such a purpose after all that has been
said for the parcels post. It Is a
small sura for such a mammoth un
dertaklng, but the apparent disparity

this new scheme. In fact, Its machln

will later on be able to take care of
still other extensions In the service.
It Is not necessary, therefore, to pro

before the parcels post experimental
stations ran be opened for business.
The postmaster general requests
that this appropriation be made In
three parts of f 50,000 each, respec

in the cities and on the railroads and
steamboats. It la to carry on only
the preliminary work, to prepare the

motor of good roads; good roads are
promotera of larger railroad traffic.
No other factor of commerce affected
by the advent and the multiplicity of
automobiles will prove of greater po
tency in enlarging the freight busi
ness. The good road certainly is an
annlhilator of dlatance; it lessens the

Third Ward Polities.
OMAHA, Oct. 11. To the Editor of Ths
Bee: Kindly permit me te say a few
worda regarding the alleged Irregular
voting conditions claimed to exist In the
The Third ward is nominally republican,
the same made possible by a strong ward
organisation. An honest Inquiry Into this
organisation will produce the fact be
yond all doubt that those who dominate
the same are bonafide respectable men,
whose residence In Omaha dates for many
years back. Further Investigation will
show that the majority of these men are
engaged In the various ordinary voca
tions of life.
The acquisition of title to property In
the residence districts nas been abso
lutely restricted on account of the tenure
of the same by railroads and other cor
porations, one condition which necessarily
attracted within Its boundaries a sort of
nomadic population to tenant the more
or less undesirable dwellings. Especially
Is this true In the lower part of the
Conditions caused by a redltght district
of thirty years standing In connection
with other superinduced evils, suddenly

a sudden and explosive reform of a few

Aa to Just how these Individuals can at
tempt to expose what they term "The
deplorable conditions of the Third ward,"
Is just a bit perplexing, coming as they
do from the democratic machine, when
It Is an actual fact that the election of
our present junior senator was made
possible on one occasion to the house of
representatives by the votes of the'Thlrd

And then, what about ths democratic
candidates to our last legislature who,
under the guise as being against county

remembrances of a Third ward support.
The law-abiding and reapeotable cltl
sens of the Third ward are tiring of the
attacks made on such thinly disguised
pretexts and If they are te be used "aa
the goat" by which certain democratic
candidates wish to gain favor and sup
port of the voters of ether wards It

BRADSHAW, Neb.. Oct. H.-To ths
Editor of The Beet The above caption Is
not very pretty, we admit, but it is more
or leas suggestive. Just now the damo
cratlq party Is highly Intoxtoated with
the hope of success In 18U., Every strata,
gem and device known to modern polltlos
will be resorted to that their hopes may
be realised. Republican party division
must be accomplished, (or without that
democratic hopes of success would be
absolutely futile. Every wild-eyed scheme
or project, under the gulae of reform, that
any faction of the republican party may
advanoe tbat has the ear-marks of dis
sension in the republican ranks will be
hailed with delight and lauded to the
skies by demooratlo demagogues in the
press and on the stump. Every noted In
surgent Is already receiving favorable
notice and commendation from ' the
demooratlo speakera , and newspapers.
Even our own W. J. Bryan, "the greatest
Romsn of them all," In his speech at
York threw great handfuls of bouquets
at Senator La Follette and insurgency
What for, do you suppose? Was It be
cause Bryan would aslt with one llttls
finger to elevate La Follette to the presi
dential ciialrT No, no, not on your life;
but Bryan sees In the La Follette fac
tion the very best grounds for demooratlo
succors. He sees a considerable faction
of republicans bowing at the altar of in
surgency, while Bryan, with his demo
cratic coworkers are busy placing
stealthily and oautloualy ths hoodwink
over the eyes by showers of flattery.
Does anyone think for one moment that
Bryan or any other leading democrat
would vote for or la any way support La

not be hoodwinked. Bryan and alt hia
hosts will wage as fierce a war to de

trol of this country, and though, aa near
as La Follette may have come to the
demooratlo brink, thank fortunes he Is
not yet a democrat, able to travel and
work aa one, nor does anyone know that
he ever will be one, even in 1912. He has
traveled well so far, hut be has a way
to travel yet that Is beset with many
demooratlo difficulties and pitfalls, and
may meet with political death, as h

in the past.
Therefore, my dear republican friend,

OMAHA, Oct. 1S.-T0 the Editor of The
Bee: In a recent editorial with referenoe
to the pure food law you closed with
these wordsi "Perhaps we shall eventu
ally come to Dr. Wiley's proposition of a
national board of health, but for the
time being the machinery the govern
ment now has for carrying out these
measures can do very good service"
The thought expressed therein Is worthy
of the eareful consideration of all.
There are few who are not thankful for
the sincere efforts of those who have In
terested themselves In asaurtng the purity
of ths food we consume, but we should
proceed with care before giving our ap
proval to a national bureau of health
merely because the Idea seems to be as
sociated with that of pure foods.
For' twenty years and more soma of
our political doctor friends have tried to
secure lawa which their various utter
ances have plainly Indicated are for the
xpreaa purpose of evenutally putting out
ef business all methods of treatment ef
disease save that known as the "regular"
er allopathic. It Is only fair to aay that,
although this work has beo eonducted
by the American Medical anauciattun. a
large part of Its membership g by bo
means In favor of the avowed objects of
the political doctors.
The effect of a national bureau of
health, under the laws proposed by Hen
stor Robert L. Owen of Oklahoma, which
he has said were Introduced because the
American Medical association wanted
them, would be felt through a govern
mental department -which would be under
the control of the oniy school of healing
that la now recognised by United States
officials In sppolntments to some 7.000
medical positions. Then, aa now. It would
be Impossible for any doctor of other
training to pass the examinations no mat
ter how well he might have succeeded
When the shove facts are considered In
connection with the knowledge that the
campaigns for a national health bureau
have been conducted only at tremendous
expense and that there is no public de
mand for compulsory treatment of dis
ease, other than Is provided for under our
ordinary sanitary and quarantine regula
tions, we begin to see the selfish motive
back of a seemingly innocent proposal.
Every man ha a right to the services
of the medical practitioner of individual
selection and none should be clothed
with governmental authority to infringe
on this privilege. Some of our eastern
magaslnes have criticised those who hold
this view, but so far they have failed to
discuss the merits of the question In
