A brave old soul went out when
, Oem Paul dicd. He was one
who was born two hundred years
I too la tc. His idea of g'ovcrn-
I mcnt was i nsufficicnt for thc age
I in which hc existed and hc lived
an alien to his timc. The crude
and antique government of thc
Transvaal was adequate for thc
, < simple life of his people before
! , thc increasing Hood of humanity
I which was surging towards his
_ country ) required more liberal
laws and more modern mcthods.
'l'hc old man knew no other ways
than thc ways of his fathers ,
and hc clung to them with a misguided -
guided persistency that resulted
- in thc destruction of his so called
rcpublic. It seemed cruel , this
loss of all hc had. It seems to-
day unchristian and false. Still
it is but thc simple lesson ot life ;
thc survival of thc fittcst. The
. . - world must move onwards to its
, ) : . : lcstiny. Civilization brings new
_ - . . demands upon thc individual and
thc nation. There is no "stand
pat" in thc march of agcs. The
individual , the nation count for
, nothing. Evcrythil1g , all things
. arc but contributors to thc accomplishment -
complishmcnt of 'that , one ( livilie
'If : ' - , . far off event towards which thc .
: : : . , whole creation movcs" . Oem
MFv Paul had not learned this lesson
' of life , and so Oem Paul ceased
to exist as a factor. Hc became
an exile from what was once his
homc. A wanderer out of tune
with his age and fellow man.
An odd and pathetic figure , with
his bleared old eyes fixed on thc
past , hc walked backward into
thc futurc. . 'Vhat he called his
wrongs hastened his death and
he went into the unknown unsub-
miss \'c , uncon t cn t.

Not many democrats will name

liT-I is the 1 greatest artist who
paints a smile on the face of a
'Ve wonder 'what the great
army of thc unwashed think of
thc fact that Parker takes a bath

The advertisements of our lo-

papers read a great deal like the
financial plank of thc democratic
General Miles has wired his
congratulations to Judge Parkcr.
The General knows of a man
who would make a corking good
secretary of war.

Isn't it about time to call : thc
Roosevelt club together again ?
There is need for effective work
along thc lines of organization
and this club can contribute materially -
tcrially in this direction.
'Vc predict that W. H. Morrow
will make thc best county attor-
ncy Richardson county ever had.
He possesses all thc requirements
experience , ability , industry and
intcgrity. Vote for Morrow.
Talk : about Jeffersonian sim-
plicity : August Belmont thc trust

agcr of Parkcr's campaign at St.

There were many hundreds of
people in town circus day and thc
most of them made purchases of
our mcrchants. There is not a
merchant that could not have
disposed of certain unseasonable
lines if they had called the attention -
tion of thc buying public to their
offcrings. Notwithstanding this
- - -
opportunity , thc local papers had
less advcrtising mattcr last week
than for sonic time beforc. It
looks to us that somcbody mis cd
thc main chance. 'Vhy not prepare -
pare for the lodge picnic ?
It is the duty of every republican -
can to vote thc legislative ticket
this year.Vc all want Burkett
in the senate and we want to
stand by ) the prcsidcnt and thc
west. This we cannot do by
voting to send a democrat to thc
Mrs. Mcycrs , thc handsomc
Kansas City young woman , who
cut her husband's ] throat while
her lover held him , is now spoken
of by thc newspapers as bashful
and rct.iring' Great Scott ! How
we would hate to meet a real for-
ward yomg- woman.

The packing house strike is
about as foolish as one can imag-
ine. It was instituted because
it was claimed that certain \111-
skilled labor was underpaid. And
thousands of men arc out of em-
ploymcnt. Time foolish part of it
lies in this ; those mcn who , it was
claimed , were underpaid and for
whom thc others struck , arc all
at work while thc class of labor
that was satisfied with its wage ,
is on thc streets idle and Ullcm-
Think of the sincerity of a
party which has incorporated a
strong anti-trust plank in its
platform , and at the same time
is seriously considering Belmont
of thc stock exchange as chair-
man of its national committee ,
has nominated Davis as its candi-
date for vice president and nominated -
nated Parker to insure a large
slush frond from Wall stn'ct.
Such a party legislate against
trusts ? As well expect thc dcvil
to legislate against hcll.
Henry Gassaway Davis , the
democratic nominee for Vice
Prcsidcn is eighty one years of
ag'c Look about you and sec
how many mcn of your acquaint-
ancc of four score and one who
arc physically fit to preside over
thc senate of the United States ,
or perchance become thc President -
dent of thc United States.
Hcnn' Gassaway has more than
eighty one years however , hc has
many millions of moncy. Now
honestly , which do you think
was responsible for his nomina-
tion , his ability to bc of service
to his country or his ability to
use his barrel for his party ?
tl'he other day al Bonestccl " ,
we saw a greasy drunkcn Indian j
buck asleep ! : in thc sun Hc was ' ;
as sweaty as a stoker and as odi- .1 i
fcrous as a pacldng' house on an .
August aftcl'Uoon. By his sidc
lay a great SLBcnard log with
his loving old 1 head on the Incli-
an's knces. lIc kept his brown
eyes fixed on mc the while as
though watching his brute of a j
maslcr. , At the adjoining' tent
stood a man with a gambling de-
vice luring a boy to financial
ruin. He was giving thc youth
loped whiskey and telling him
how smart hc was. Looking at
these two pictures one could readily -
ily appreciate thc words of thc
great French lady when she said :
" .L'he more I see of men , thc bet-
tcr I like ( dog's "
'l'hc Populist party buried its
idcntity to serve Byan in 181)
and 11)00. Jt did so because it
desired thc cstablishmcnt of
principle first and party succcss
aft rwards. Bryan has said that
Parker is unsafc , unfit , thc tool
of wall strcct. If so , : Mr. Bryan ,
why arc you supporting him ?
The populist party has adopted a
platform which contains a dcmand
for everything you have contcnd-
cd for. It has nominatcd a can-
didatc whom no one will accuse .
of being in touch with thc stock
exchange or the trusts. If you
arc as sincere as thc. great army
of metro who abandoned their party
for you and your principles , why
arc you not voting for Watson
who has Made your principles his
own ? 'Vhy vote for Parker and
thc gold 1 standard and against
Watson and bimctalism ? Why
line yourself up with Dave ] Hill ,
Belmont , Morg'an , Rock feller and
against Watson , Allen and
others ? Why take up the sword
of your enemies to destroy your
friends ? Why Mr. Bryan ?
During thc last twenty years
every political party in this state
has promiscd a new revenue law .
The republican party is thc only
one that has made "pcrformance
square with promisc" . If you
think it an easy ask to frame a
revenue law for thc common-
wcalth of Nebraska , just take
down thc statute and read thc
present law and you can readily
form an idea of the tremendous
task which confronted the last
legislature in producing present -
cnt cnactmcnt. It was anticipated -
ed that there would bc somc mis-
takes , sonic incquitics. 1'0 the
correction of these thc republican
party is pledgcl.trhat party
which has kept its promise is the
safest one to trust. In many respects -
spccts thc present law is a great
improycment over its prcdcccssor.
In those re spccts thc law should
remain inyiolatc. If you desirc
thc good to be retained and thc
bad to be eliminated , you can
accomplish your desire by casting
your vote for Grinstcad , Hogrcfc ,
Smith and 'ruckcr.
