It is not new trick on the part of the demo
crats to raise a false Issue. In 1896 it was the
"British" gold standard they inveighed against
just as they are now railing about the republican
ticket being dictated from Berlin by the "Kaiter."
Mr. Bryan says in his Commoner, "Now for
the campaign we must win." Our recollection
is that he said the very tame thing at least three
different times, when he himself was the demo
cratic nominee for president, but failed to be
sustained by the returns.
Though why Lincoln newspapers should be

BtTtegi and loan Aisoolationt.
I Savings and loan associations in Nebraska
rank next to state banks as promoters of thrift
snd loaning agencies. Their importance in the
field of finance and home ownership Is known to
all concerned in the upbuilding of communities.
As custodians of $45,000,000, the savings of thou
sands of Nebrasksnt, their business activities and
tendencies vitally concern the members and the
public at large.
Heretofore the signpost of safety for associa
tions pointed solely to loans on local mortgage
security, chiefly homes. Local knowledge of
values and of the standing of the borrower but
tressed the sign and experience justified lb
Nearly all Nebraska associations adhere closely
to the local field. Several astoeiationa operate
throughout the state, and a few seek business in
adjoining states. The tendency toward larger
fields of operation is evident from the recent ac
tion of the association league in abolishing what
has been regarded as the "dead line of safety."
This tendency deserves thoughtful consideration.
; During the early Wi associations doing a
state-wide and nation-wide business overran the
Middle Weat Their energy, enterprise, and
promises almost overwhelmed local associations.
The big fellows reveled in riches, the little ones
nearly famished for support Yet when the lean
years of 1893-4-5 strained tha resources of the
country, practically every one of the mammoth
associations were swept out of existence, leaving
trails of bankruptcy, extravagance and desola
tion throughout Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa and
Missouri. Nebraska was spared the blight chiefly
because the associations confined their operations
to the local field and successfully weathered the
stress of hard times.
Conditions have changed greatly in twenty
rears. New and greater resources have been de
veloped, values vastly Increased and investment
rpportunitlet multiplied. But the line of local
safety is not materially altered. It is as clear
today as when experience drew it through the
national association wreckage of former years.
Some Outstanding- Facts.
War with Mexico may be precipitated at any
moment now, the issue depending upon the ac
tion of Vcnustiano Carranza and his advisers.
The erratic course of these men, since they came
to the surface in Mexico a few years ago stamps
them as irresponsible as well as incapable. Whim
or impulse has so far been their guide, rather than
reason, and to outline a policy that depends on
their doing or not doing anything is to continue
guesswork. However greatly our government
may have blundered in its dealings with the Mex
icans does not excuse the ignorance, reckless
ness and Imbecility displayed on the Mexican
side. That President Wilton clings to his hope
that the present grave situation may be brought
to a satisfactory solution without war is to his
credit, and indicates his patience, which is sup'
ported by the national abhorrence of war. The
step that will take us across the Rio Grande will
only be made when all other hope is abandoned.
These are the outstanding facts. Appeals
from Europe and from South America that war
be averted do not fall on deaf ears in the United
States, but all the world must realize that the
United States has borne about as much from the
irresponsible banditti of Mexico, whether mas
querading as organized armies or riding as mere
marauders, as can be expected of a self-respect
ing people. We are willing, nay, we have sac
rificed much to maintain peace, but we are just
at the end of our patience now. Slaughtered
soldiers, murdered citizens, ravished women,
burning homes, ravaged ranches and devastated
industries of various kinds do not form s very
eloquent basis for further appeal to forbearance.
If we do not go to war to give Mexico a real
government, it will be one ef the miracles of
After Schooldays, On ths Job.
Much white paper that might be devoted to
better purposes, is nowadays being smeared with
ink, to tell the newly graduated boys and girls
what to do in order to conquer the world. All
might be summed up in a single word. Work.
The job you may have secured, young man, or
young woman, may not be the one you expected,
nor the one at which you intend to devote your
life. It would be a mighty fine billet, if it did
tome up to your expectations. But it is the thing
you have in hind to do, therefore do it with all
your might Do not slight it in any regard. The
world is not cold nor is it at all indifferent, but
it Is very busy ,tnd hain't time to fool away on
persons who are not in earnest. Also, the line
ahead of you is pretty well filled up with others
who started earlier, and who are quite as eager
for success as you are. It isn't going to be easy
to break through that line, but if you have the
right quality you can do it Only, don't wait for
some one far up shead to step out snd give you
his place. Those things do not transpire in real
life. You didn't get through school without
work, and you'll not get on in life unlets you
do put your energies of mind and body into
your employment. Do not be discouraged if
you do not get immediately the recognition you
deserve. Thtt will come in due teason, but the
old world It "from Mitsouri," and you must con
vince it. Hard work it the only known way to
Conventions of the Future
Four years ago the prediction was common
that the president-choosing convention was a
thing of the past and that nomination by nation
wide direct primary vote would materialize be
fore the end of another quadrennial period. As a
matter of fact, however, all the big political par
tiea have again held nominating conventions, and
none has reverted to a nation-wide primary, ex
cept the socialist party, which has made its choice
by referendum vote, but the conventions are
plainly shewing changes toward deliberation and
sanity. Reviewing the republican gathering, Sen
ator Borah of Idaho makes this declaration:
"I with all conventions were just such con
ventions at the Chicago convention except
more so. I would like to see all future conven
tions of all parties meet in some building, pre
ferably not a barn, sufficiently large to hold the
delegates and then proceed without noise, with
out commercial enthusiasm, without competi
tive cheering to the discuttion and considera
tion Of policies and to the most important task
that can devolve upon the citizens, the selec
tion of a candidate for the presidency."
Equally experienced observers have reached the
conclualon that the day of ttaampeding delegates
by manufactured demonstrations and artificially
promoted outbursts of enthusiasm has passed,
and that the convention of the future will be a
buainess session rather than a campmeeting. Sen
ator Borah unquestionably has the situation
rightly sized up and has visualized the direction
which convention reform hat taken.
Hebraska on tha Battlefield
More of Nebraska's young men are under
arms and on their way to serve the United States
in battle, if need be, and before them marches a
record to which they may look for inspiration
when duty in its sternest form beckons them on.
At Shilob the first of all the First Nebraskans
met the shock of battle with such credit that their
colonel became a brigadier general. Only a few
of this gallant body of men are yet alive, but six
in Omaha, but the glory they won will never die.
Another Firtt Nebraska regiment waded through
water up to the waist, under fire, to land at far
off Manila and help to carry the flag and t,he
constitution to the Filipinos. "There goes the
First Nebraska, and all hell can't stop 'em," ex
claimed General Hale, as later on, he watched
the regiment charge, with Stotsenberg at its head.
Stotsenberg gave his life for his impetuosity, and
Lee Forby, and others whose names are cherished
went down, but the First Nebraska set Old Glory
over the trenches of the insurrectoi, and gave
Aguinaldo's cause a blow from which it never
In 1898 the Second and Third Nebraaka boyt
had only to ttand and wait, but they alto served,
and they too are a part of the history in which
the state has pride. And now the Fourth and
Fifth are going out, and with them the good
wishes of all the people of the state, who feel
these younger soldiers will not bring less of
credit to the name of Nebraska than did thote
who went before them. .
That accident in which a trench-digger lost
his life will illustrate the change made by the
workmen's compensation law. Whether tha
mishap was due to negligence or not, his de
pendent widow will be entitled to a definite
death benefit where formerly the choice would
have been between a nominal aettlement or the
tottery ef a lawsuit with the lawyers taking off
half the winnings. . Can there be any two opin
ions as to which is the better?

DETERMINATION to get the United States
senate back into republican control is spur
ring the party in the different states that nave
senatorial seats at stake this year to bring out
their strongest men, making it already certain
that the new blood to be infused into that body
will carry vigor and force. The primary in Min
nesota has furnished as definite assurance as can
be given in advance that the next representative
in the senate from that state wilt be Frank B.
Kellogg, who, to those who know him, is a man of
exceptional ability and peculiarly attractive per
aonality. Mr. Kellogg has been a visitor in Omaha
many times, coming here always on law business,
except once when he accepted an invitation to
address our Palimpsest club. Physically small,
he is mentally a giant He is a lawyer through
and through and yet, at the same time, hat been
active in politics. I served with him on the na
tional committee through two laborious sittings
beset with the hearing of contest cases and we
were together on subcommittees that worked
out the convention calls with a view to avoiding
conflicts with the fast accumulating direct pri
mary laws, no two of which were alike.
While Mr. Kellogg has more than once con
fessed an ambition to serve in the senate, I .know
that it took great persuasion on the part of his
friends to induce him to run this time. What he
objected to most, as he told me, was the necessity
ot making a vote-seeking canvass tor tne primary
and then a second canvass for the election.
"I would not mind making a campaign as the
nominee of my party," he told me. But appeal
ing to people for their votes as a personal favor
is distasteful to me, and I do not feel inclined
to go in."
That was six months ago, however, and he
was later compelled to see that it was his duty
to respond to the popular call for leadership, with
the result as the returns showed, decisively to
his advantage. In other words, Mr. Kellogg is
being "drafted" in almost the same sense as is
The nomination of Frederick Hale for United
States senator on the republican ticket in Maine,
also attests the sincere efforts of the republicans
in that state to put forward their most promising
talent. Colonel Hale is a much younger man
than Mr. Kellogg, and much newer in public
life, but of the same aggressive type. He, too,
has had service on the national committee and
in the party strife was on the progressive tide
but maintained hia regularity and hat been a po
tent factor in the get-together movement He
was one of the early recruits in the Hughet
movement this year and the deep-rooted Hughes
sentiment in Maine and the adjoining New Eng
land states is due to the stand taken by him and
others like him. It will be only fair if the
strength of the Hughes ticket takes Colonel Hale
along with it into the United States senate.
Mitsouri has had only one republican United
States senator since the Civil war, but the pros
pect is so promising now that an interesting
contest for tne nomination is on between Walter
S. Dickey of Kansas City and Thomas J. Akins
of St Louis. Mr. Dickey is much better known
here for his active part in the waterways agita
tion and for having organized the company which
inaugurated the barge line up to Kansas 'City.
He has acquired a snug fortune, begun by the
manufacture of sewer pipe and incidentally of
the clay pigeons which trap shootert know aa
"Dickey birds." Mr. Akins, on the other hand,
has no tuch wealth of hit own or financial back
ing of others, but has been one of the party war
horses for years. He is a native Missourian and
has been postmaster at St Louis and has been an
indefatigable worker for other candidates in a
way that has made him hosts of friends. With
considerable perspicacity, Mr. Akins took off his
coat and rolled up hia sleeves to help organize
the Hughet sentiment in Missouri, never stopping
his efforts until the nomination was landed in
Chicago, while his competitor for the senatorial
nomination sat upon the side lines. This, it is
expected, will help make the contest brisk if it
does not give Akins a positive advantage. At
one time it was thought that ex-Governor Hadley
would try for the aenatorship in Missouri, but
the poor state of his health is keeping him wholly
out of politics.
Over at Chicago I got word of our former
governor, George L. Sheldon, who has become
a planter in Mississippi that warranta the belief
that we will hear from him in his new location.
Inquiring of some of the Mississippi folks, they
told me, "Oh yes, Captain Sheldon is doing very
nicely. We had him over to our state convention
and he made ut a fine speech. We would have
had him here with us on our delegation but the
selections had already been agreed to and he did
not seem, specially eager to come. We expect
to have his help in building up our party and we
wish we were strong enough down our way to
make him governor of our state at he waa of
The time and care devoted to the selection of
a chairman to manage the republican national
campaign recalla the difficulty Mr. Bryan had in
making hit selection the last time he ran for
president, and an apt remark of his I heard with
reference to the difficulty encountered in realizing
hit ideal, which I have recited before. This it
how Mr. Bryan expretted himtelf, "I am rather
glad that we were unable to find the ideal chair
roan; for if we had a man in our party able to
meet all the requirements of the ideal chairman,
he would have been nominated for president in
stead of me."

Springfield Republican: The Presbyterian
general assembly ef Canada, after three days'
debate, voted, 40S to 88, to accept the plan
of uniting the Presbyterian, Congregational
and Methodist churches of the Dominion. A
bitter fight was waged against the proposal
by an influential minority, composed largely
of ministers and laymen from eastern Can
ada, whose loyalty to Presbytertanlsm made
them look with disfavor upon a consolidated
church in which the salient features of their
denomination might be modified. Yet the
sentiment for union gained noticeably In
strength as the debate sroceeded.
Baltimore American: Waste, the stern
Indictment of the Protestant churches,
stands today the one fell foe to elneiencv.
It flourishes by the grace of the competitive
system that lies at tha base of Protestant
divisions. There is no counterpart to this
waste In the Catholic parochial system which
enables the church to follow up every one of
its members and to keep them in line, un
lets by virtue of their own acts they per
sistently separate themselves from its com
munions. But they axe not even then lost
sight of. Many are revived and brought
again Into the church, with a Christian ex
perience. The ideal of tha gospel must be
the ideal ef the church to present every
man faultless before the presence of the
tattler. But the Protestant churches make
the congregation, rather than the Individual,
tha unit Aa long a tha congregation is sus
tained, tha membership satisfactory, the
fact that there are other sheep of Jesus
outside the fold does not seem to stir some
of them any great degree. Yet the most
wonderful and most beautiful parable of the
Master centered In this one idea, to effect
the saving of the last individual.
