When Governor Slmllenberger signed
the bank guarantee law, there was
doubt and misgiving on part of many
men. The law has become one of the
aost popular upon the statute books
of Nebraska, and bankers as well as
business men and farmers are highly
commendatory of the governor's action.
The bankers who fought It hardest now
openly aud willingly admit its good
points. Shallenberger's signature to
that bill exhibited qualities or states
unship. The eight o'clock closing
law today is extremely popular and it
emphatically endorses the governor's
good judgment in siguing the oil! in
the face of such vehemeut protest
Gov. Shallcnbergcr will have better
opportunity in the United States
senate than even as a congressman or
governor and at the close of his
present campaign the chances are he
will ilnd an endoisement fuily as em
pbatlo as that given Senator Hitch

Just what did Lincoln mean by his
celebrated phrase "government of the
people, by the people, for tho people"?
Did he mean no moro than Daniel
Webster did by his very similar ex
pression thirty years before? Web
ater'a reply to Hayne ranked as the
greatest, most significant1 speech de
livered is Congress when Lincoln was
s youug man. Tho future president
was twenty one ears old when the
famous debate occurred as to the char
acter of the federal government. Al
though Lincoln might not have kuowu
of the speech at the time of his deliv
ery, it cau not be doubted that he had
read it again and again after he be
came conversant with law and politics.
When Lincoln himself went to Con
gress seventeen yeursjaf terwards, Web
ster was still in theheightofhisglory,
and regarded as the foremost lawyer
and statesman of the day. While
Henry Clay was the leader of the Whig
party, appealing more to the masses
and the uncultured, Webster was the
whig whose speeches were in the school
books, whose arguments were in the
opinions of the courts, and whose lead
ership of the intelligent was undis
puted. The speech in reply to Hayue
was still the most talked of speech of
the time. Hayne aud Calhoun had
argued the right of a state to nullify
aa act of Congress within its boundar
ies, and ooutended for the power of a
state to interpose against a law of con
gress when tho state deemed that law
unconstitutional. It was in answer to
these propositions that Webster made
his great arguments in which he con
tended that the general government
was the creation of the people, not of
the states, independent of the state!),
and supreme over the states. In his
xeply to Hayne he used this luuguttgc,
'It it, sir, the people's constitution,
the peoples' government, mode by the
people, made for the people, and tin
aworable to the people." Lincoln uu
doubtedly had read aud pondered this
phrase many times. In that speech,
also, Webster had announced that war
was the inevitable consequence of any
jresistance to the general government.
The speeches and arguments of Web
ster must bavo been quite familiar to
Lincoln long before he took his seat
as President, and they were doubtless
read and re-read during the progress
of the war. Yet It may be that Liu
coin had a still deeper meauiug thau
the meaning Webster had in mind.

City Philanthropy at
Farmers of the community who be
lieve that the large Chicago mail order
houses sell their merchandise at cost or
near cost might reflect a little over
recent gifts to charity made by Julius
Rosen wald president of Sears, Roebuck
& Co., which also presents the added
lesson that none of the profits of the
concern which come from the farmers
is ever distributed for the benefit of
rural districts; instead it goea to Chi
cago charities. Rosen wald on his 50th
birthday anniversary celebrated recent
ly was filled with so much gratitude
toward the public that ho gave away
1087,000, and every cent of it went to
some Chicago charity except one gift
to Booker T. Washington to aid edu
cational institutions for colored people.
Iu reality, it is not Mr. Kosenwuld who
is aiding Chlcairo charities, but the
farmers of this and every other com
munity who patronize the mull order
houses. A lotof money of this commun
ity goes to the Chicago mail order in
stitutionH. "Charity begins at home."

of Mr. Rosenwald sending money buck

Is having enough fun out of the cam
paign to compensate him for the effort..
Out at Beaver Ciy they had ucouuty
fair last week. Mr. Sutherland jwus
there, and one evening addressed an
audience In the city park. He din.
cussed national Issues as the candidate
of the democratic and populist parties.
Among other things, he recited the
fact that when in Lincoln lately he
called upon bis adversary, Silas A.
Barton, for a statement as to whether
the latter was for Taft or Roosevelt.,
Mr. Barton replied through the
press that the moose and elephant aie
In close relationship in Nebraska, and
then called upon Mr. Sutherland for a
statement as to whether he is a popu
list or a democrat
Mr. Sutherland told the people of
Beaver City that he had replied to that
through tho press, saying that for
j ears he hud been a member of the pop
ulist party, but that he is now iu af
filiation with the democratic paity
aud supporting Wilson aud Marshall.
Blithe did not stop tliero. He directed
attention to the fact that the versatile
Silas Uarton hud attended the pop
ulist convention as a duleguto at the
same time that Sutherland intended
in the same capacity.
In closing his address Mr. Sutberlaud
domanded again that Mr. Barton take
tho people of his district into his confi
dence and tell them whether he Is
standing for Taft and his platform or
for Roosevelt and his platform.
"We stand at Armageddon, and we
battle for tho Lord," proclaimed Mr.
Sutherland. "Where are you, Mr. liar
ton, and where do you stand iu these
matters?" Lincoln Star.

Conserving Home Trade
Conservation is a watchword of to
day. Businesses are being made more
profitable, often times not so much by
"extending to new aud untried Melds
and by developing the existing field
ami saVlng leaks.
'Similarly in the life of the trade
community. Securing a new industry
to locate here would be profitable to
our city. But if our people, cun be
persuaded to buy the products of home
industries, rather than patronizing the
industries of Borne other town, the
same result is accomplished and with
much less risk of loss.
The money is placed in circulation
here nnd it helps to build up yourowu
town, rather than helping to build up
some other town.
The mau who preaches uud practices
the idea of patronizing home enter
prises is helping to build up his towu
just as surely us If he made It some
tine gift And it costs nothing to tulk
up home enterprises.
Prices of goods tend to equuli.e
themselves the world over. If you get
an article for less in some distant de
partment store, it Is because you have
to.take moro pains nnd time to get It.
Or you have to make it up iu payment
of express charges, or lu the fact that
the guarantee of good value is less
satisfactory. The Examiner.
No petitions for citizenship will be
heard at the October term of the dis
trict court which convenes October
the 7th, as this date is within thirty
days of the November election. The
law provides that no petitions for
citizenship shall be allowed within
thirty days of a general election.
