The ticket named by the republican
state convention this week Is a strong
one. with the exception of the namt at
the head. It 'a a sad commentary on
the intelligence of the republican party
that of all the available material for
gubernatorial candidates "Jack" Mac
Coll should have been selected. Two
years ago the republican state conven
tion selected as the candidate for gov
ernor one of the weakest men In the
party, and Mr. Majors was defeated
at the polls while all the other republi
can candidates were elected. This week
the convention again selected the
weakest and poorest candidate, and
raised up as the chief standard bearer
of the party an Ignorant, roysterlng,
good fellow. In the preliminary cam
paign The Courier did not say one
word about "Jack" MacColl that was
untrue, and any favorable comment
on the ticket In thes columns must
omit the gubernatorial candidate. The
republican party is slow to learn. In
this campaign Instead of having a can
didate, such a Hayward or Melkeljohn,
who would have, led the party and
pushed along the cause, we have a
leader whom we will have to pull after
us, a man for whom excuses and ex
planations will have to be made. The
Courier does not want to see a populist
elected governor, and It Is sincerely
hoped that MacColl will be elected. At
the tame time It is greatly to be re
gretted that the party is forced to go
into the campaign with such a heavy
The rest of the ticket is excelllent.
It is fortunate that the combination
was partially broken, and that Mc
Nlsh was defeated for the nomination
for treasurer. MacColl and McNish
would have been too much. Mr. Casey
will greatly strengthen the ticket. All
the other nominations are good. There
is such a great preponderance of good
over bad that the whole ticket ought
to be triumphantly elected.

Of Miss Maud Oakley, who sang at

night, the World-Herald says:
"When Miss Maud Oakley of Lin
coln sang at Miss Terry's recital last
night every one of the audience, which
filled the dining room of the Murray
-hotel to its utmost capacity, v is glad
that he had incurred the discomfort of
standing or sitting in an over-crowded
room for two long hours, for this
young woman possesses a voice, clear,
sweet and strong, and uses it in a man
ner Indicative of careful training and
conscientious study. And added to
this her popularity is such as to call
