In the republican camp the filing of
Jess- Newton as a candidate for gov

expected that the itovcrnor, fn fact, all
of tho republican officials nerving their
first term, would ro throueh without uny
opposition In the primaries, but the New
ton fliins, taken In connection with the
letter which accompanied It. indicates
Newton's intention of staying in the

with the organization which' Mr. Currle

primary result is not only considered to
be assured but by so large a majority
that all can understand Its significance.
When tho committees, which are to

ballot, meet In Lincoln January 15, they
will find the organization work well
along toward completion.
The LaFollette men of the first dis

up their slate of candidates for the

Before the Coffee RoaaterV Association, in -aion
at Chicago on Thursday, Thomas J. Webb,
of Chicago, charged that there Is. in ext"stnce a
coffee combine which is "the most monstrous lm-
position in the history of human commerce."
There is very slight exaggeration about this
statement. It comes very close to being literally
true. There is a coffee combine In Bratil, from
which country cornea the bulk of the coffee used
tn the United States, which is backed by the gor
eminent of Braxil and financed by it, which com-,
pels American consumers, as Mr. Webb said, "to
pay famine prices for coffee when no famine
The worst thing about this is that the consum
ers of the United States have been compelled to
put up the money through which this combine,
to further cinch them, has been made effective.
There were formerly revenue duties imposed upon
all coffee .entering the United States. Those taxes
were denounced as an Imposition upon the people;
as taxing the poor man's breakfast table, and the
like. The taxes were removed. Immediately
thereafter Brazil imposed an export duttr upon

taxes in this country. Tho revenue which for
merly went into the treasury of the United States
was diverted to the treasury of Brazil. The poor
man's breakfast coffee continued to cost him the
same old price.
But this was only the commencement. The
"valorization" plan was evolved in Brazil.
Through this plan the government, using tho rev
enues derived from the export duties f ir the pur
poses, takes all of tho surplus crop in u season of
large yields and holds it off the mirket, thus
keeping the supply down to the demands of the
market and permitting the planters to receive
much higher price than they would otherwise
The United States consumes more Brazilian cof
fee than does the rest of the world. We are the
best customers of Brazil, and BraiH buys little
from us. Now Brazil is promoting, financing and
maintaining a trust designed, and working effect

sumers to pay an exorbitant price for the coffee ,

While the sales of Postum invariably
show marked increase year over year, the
extraordinary demand for that well
known breakfast beverage during 1911 is
very likely due to a public awakening to
the oppression of the coffee trust
Such an awakening naturally disposes
the multitude who suffer from tne ill
effects of coffee drinking to be more re
