Shall Senator Burkett be returned to
hia seat in the uoner branch of Con-
Next year the voters of Nebraska
will answer this question and for the
first time they and not the legislature
will sar whom the senator shall be,
for the Oregon plan of making popular
ohoioe will then be invoked, under the
new law. j
Mr Bnrkett will at that time have
finished a service of twelve years in
'Washington, six years ia the lower
house and six years in the Senate.
During this time the people of this
state have an opportunity to take hi
measure. It is not forgotten that in
1904 6, when a senator was to be oho
sen the republicans of Nebraska turned
with practioal unanimity to Mr Bur
kett. He was then completing his
third term in the House. I a that body
he had gained a position of prominence
and power, lie had advanced to mem
bership of the Committee on Appropri
ations. He had demonstrated a genius
for hard and systematic work, lie was
a digger and driver and this nropensi
tv counted greatly in hi favor aa a
mull' useful member. The people of
this elate saw this.
They saw in him the elements they
thoucht would be even more useful in
the upper house. To make sura of
his seleotion they inaugurated a new
method of selecting the nominee for
senator. They declared in favor of
convention nomination, so that the
choioe might be brought as nearly as
possible to the people. At the cauous
es and in count? conventions the issue
wai maJe with th. result, that M
Burkett was nominated in the state
convention on tho tlrst ballot by
four-fifths maioritv in this and in the
convention of the following year when
political pawea were deolaieJ against
lor the first time in a republican plat
form aod when railroad domination
was ended by the defeat of their pre
ferred eandi Jatea for nidge of the su
pre ma court, Mr Burkett played
atrontr and oontiounus part. He was
one of the first "progressives" in Ne
brauka and has been identified with
toe movement since it began. Whil
he hasn't always pleased all who call
themselves "progressives" he has won
the approval of the leader of the move
In tho senate Sir lsurkott baa as
faithfully and intelligently represented
his constituency as he did in the House
He has been responsive to the needs
and wishes of the people, though tak
insr no narrow or restricted view of
national interests. No constituent has
appealed to him in vain. Ho has
been active in promoting better posta'
facilities. He has never overlooked
the claims or the deserts of the old
soldier and no senator has been more
efficient or prompt than he in serving
his constituent in pension mattors.
On public linds and inigation, in re
vision of the turriff as well as all other
interest peouliar to the welfare of a
western state, he has taken practical
His work in the extra session of Con
gress to compel the redemption of
platform pledges was arduous and
effective. Oe was one of the force of

President in favor of the demands of
the west and of the manses with respect

During his ten years in Washington
there has been no breath of suspicion
concerning a single act of Mr Burkett,
and thero never will be. He is abso
lutoly clean in his publio and xriyato
life. He is morally what the most ex
acting could wish him to be. He
measures up in his standard of man
hood to what an enlightened. Uoa
