Nebraska Republicans In Fighting Trim.
VVfiile no battle can be won before it is fought,
the significance of the convention just held by
Nebraska republicans and the platform they have
promulgated lies in the spirit of confident deter
mination for a united and aggressive campaign
for party success in November. History cannot
be unmade, but the disposition to forget past dis
sensions and look only forward has brushed aside
all petty differences as to details for rallying the
forces in a solid column behind the national stand
ard bearers and in support of the principles and
policies enunciated by the national party.
Let it be known that Nebraska republicans are
thoroughly in accord with the idea of nationalism.
They are in step with the march of progress by
which effective federal regulation must supersede
state regulation of railroads, as against the demo
cratic states' rights policy of divided and multi
plied and therefore weak regulation, and so will
be the voters of Nebraska when the issue is fully
explained and understood.
When a thousand men, from all parts of the
state, travel distances up to 300 miles to attend
political conclave without any special business
to perform, except as a ratification meeting, it is
proof positive of party alertness and vitality. This
is much more true when the party happens to
be out of power in both state and nation with no
pie counter" brigade responding merely to pro
tect their meal tickets. In Nebraska, then, it ap
plies fsr more to the republicans than to the
True, over-confidence sometimes threatens
disaster as much as does hopeless discouragement,
but with the favoring conditions, this state ought
to be put back in the republican column by a
decisive majority next November and contribute
ight Hughes and Fairbanks votes In the electoral
college to help redeem the national government
from democratic incompetence. That is the mes
sage of the convention and the inspiration of the

Those Jacksonians might have saved their
' railroad fare, but then they would not have
learned the lesson, "No use going where you're

The. Ugliness of that Welcome Arch has one
redeeming feature it shines alike for all, regard
less, of politics, religion, wealth or relative im
portance or unimportance.
" State convention chairmen should by all means
have a better understanding with the weather
man with reference to the temperature to be fur
nished for the last Tuesday in July. ,
' The school board that was elected on the is
sue of reform and retrenchment is asking for the
biggest tax levy ever. Some jobs are much eas
ier to criticise than to do differently.
"We commend all our candidates as worthy of
support," says the democratic platform. Yes, but
several of the candidates have more than once
denounced one another as unworthy of support.
If Omaha had a real workhouse, so that a

Koenig, and hoping he'll reach the deep water in

Relying on Their Record. ,
Only the fondest of infatuation could have ac
tuated the democrats in prefacing the platform
adopted at Hastings by a challenge that the rec
ord of the party be inspected. In the same breath
support is ssked for a candidate for president who
is running for re-election in direct violation of a
pledge made for him by his party at Baltimore
four years ago, and which he then accepted.
-Nor is the one-term plank of that platform the
only one that has been ruthlessly set aside, al
though the claquers of the party now urge that
every promise is "written in the book of deeds,'
whatever that is. As to the prosperity of the
country, think what was the condition two years
ago, just before the Europesn war broke out, and
by its shipping embargo saved our country from
the folly of the Underwood bill. As to Mexico,
the president has cerainly handled affairs down
there with "delicacy." He has kept us out of war,
although he has twice sent an armed force into
that "friendly" country; but he has an army of
150,000 men on the border now, more than ever
assembled by the United States in time of peace.
He hss protected American citisens along the
border, as Is attested by Columbus, Glen Springs
and other places. He hss "compelled respect for
American citizenship, as will be found by look
ing up the list of Americans who died In Mexico,
victims of bsndits; whose property was destroyed,
and whose women underwent unspeakable out
rage. Other features of the Hastings platform
will be considered in due time, but the challenge
to scan the record of the party nationally de
serves immediste attention.
. Good Roads and tha Federal Treasury,
i. Announcement by the Department of Agri
culture of the apportionment of the first year's
$5,000,000 of the $75,000,000 set aside for good
rosds does not mean that splendid highwsys are
to spring up aa magic where the feet of Uncle
Sam touch. It doea mean that the general gov
ernment is going to shsre to some degree in the
expense of building good rosds.. The states will
have to share equally out of their own pockets
in tlte cost of construction and accept the re
sponsibility for maintenance. This provision
something of' a menace to permanency for it
leaves the rosds very much ss they are now, uit'
der local influences thst have not so far been able
to. produce or maintain efficient highways. The
general plan of the highway act is attractive; but
it is deficient in that it does not contemplste an
oversight that would effectively secure the up'
keep of highways once constructed. If some
such arrangement is not made the money ex
pended by the federal government will serve no
better purpose than that expended by the state,
which usually wasted.
Nebraska's quota of the present appropria
tion is just over 2 per cent At this ratio ,the
state may draw $1,500,000 of the total sum set
aside. At the limit of expense set by the depart'
ment, not to exceed $10,000 a mile, with the
state's contribution, it will mean 300 miles of
main line highway to be constructed within five
years, i Not an especially extensive campaign,
but .stimulus to action, and a certain incentive.

Wild Weal Crualtlaa to Animala.
Omaha, July H. To tha Editor of Tha
Bea: Prlntar'a ink hai awn utad freaiy

work of tha Nebraaka Humana aoclaty. Per
mit me to axpreaa my thanka for every word.
No longer is Omaha a rural village nor a
frontier town. It only followa that with tha
trowth of a city all thing! mmt grow.
"Grow with growing Omaha" is a alogan
which well beltte our city of the middle weit.
Omaha ia not only growing in one way,
but In many, and Juetly ia every aelf-re-peeting
eltiaan proud. When a pen la lifted
to bring to tha attention of Omaha people
the fact that atep backward, rather than
forward, ia being taken by the recent visit
of a Wild West show only good can coma
Mies Jessie Millard can aurely only have
tha gratitude of tha telf-respecting publie
when she aska that there never be a repeti
tion of auch another Wild Weat ahow In
Omaha. Miss Millard does not apeak of tha
ahow and ita brutalities from hearaay aha
had tha "privilege" of seeing a performance
in Cheyenne, Wyo., and doubtless ia well
aware of the facts. Through the untiring
efforts of Misa Millard, Mrs. I. Dm Forest
Richarda and Mrs. George Prlna, the Ne
braaka Humana society has officially thanked
them for a sum amounting to many hundred
dollara, which they have personally eolielted
from the buainess men of Omaha. It la
eaay to understand now why a statement
from Miss Millard aa to the brutality of
auch a show and ita moral effect upon our
city. The Humane society ia for the pur
pose of prohibiting cruel treatment to help
less children and animala.
There are bigger things in tha mind of a
eommunity than a passed amusement of a
day. Citisens can only be grateful for a
warning word which can make a future big
ger and better for Its being said. As to
the facts regarding the work of some of tha
members of the Humana aoelety and their
efforta to stop the cruelty in the recent ahow
in Omaha: Legal advice waa obtained from
an attorney who is not a member of tha
Humane eoeiety nor a city official, by a
woman member of the society. His advice
waa to the effect that little aid could be
given animala in such cases, owing to tha
inadequate lawa of the state. He auggested
tha eoeiety taking action to better the lawa
governing eruel treatment to animals in Ne
braska. Only Special Officer J. E. Wheeler, who ia
being paid SI 00 a month by private aub
aeription, attended the Saturday afternoon
performance. He haa only the authority to
bring auch eaaea of cruelty to the attention
of tha axeeutiva of the society and tha police.
Promisee had been given by the offieera of
tha Nebraska Humane society to attend In
person the first performance that tha mem
bers might ba well Informed as to the man
ner of amusement.
Tha Wild West show haa come and gone.
May the oitiaena of our city Join with me In
gratitude to the preaa and Miss Millard for
calling tha attention of the publie to auch
erueltlea, and a wish that amusementa of a
better type may In the future be given to
Omaha. HOPE HANCHETT RUTLEDGE.
