That President Koosevelt's actions
in the Bowen-Loomis and Paul
Morton affairs have placed him on
a lower plane of public service
and devotion to ideals is the con
sensus of expression in eastern
newspapers of all shades of politi
The president is acceped by edi
torial and news writers alike , by
public men and people at large , as
having white-washed Loomis and
Morton in a fashion which even
the best friends of the administra
tion make no attempt to defend.
The developments of these twin
scandals have been followed with
deepest interest. It is not too
much to say that the president's
action in both cases was fully ex- j
pected , but in neither was it ex
pected that he would base his ac
tion on so weak a statement of
facts and reason. J. C. Welliver

An Kh-ction riiixVar. .
The supreme court has declared
the biennial elections law violative
of the constitution. Public senti
ment in Nebraska , which v
overwhelmingly in .favor of the
law , must bow to that decree.
Instead of being able to devote
the summer and fall to a calm and
thoughtful discussion and study of
public questions , free from the
heat of partisanship , the people of
the state must prepare for the an
nual plunge into politics. The
earnest consideration for the best
means of remedying glaring evils
that afliict the state , which , in the
past few months , has been pro
ductive of much good , will shortly
be asked to give way to the de
mands of the party. The fact ,
while it cannot be helped , is to be
The World-Herald feels , how
ever , that partisanship does not
appeal as strongly to Nebraskans
as it did a few years ago. Public
sentiment is crystalizing in a de
mand for relief from heavy burd
ens and intolerable impositions ,
and not even the heat of political
campaign will be able to dissipate
that sentiment or undo the pro
gress that has been made.
i It is to be hoped that the citi 1
zens of Nebraska , whatever their
party affiliations , who are earnest
in their desire for reform , will
manifest their earnestness even in
this off-year election. Let them
attend their primaries ; let them
send good , clean men to their con
ventions ; let them scrutinize the t
standing of applicants for place
upon their tickets , and demand
some other qualification beside the
railroad O. K. If they will do
this they will get the most good

Old Timers at Dead wood Be
wildered by Reform.
Dead wood , S. D. , June 2i.
Old timers in Lead and Dead wood
are wondering if they are hearing
and seeing things aright.
, For nearly thirty years they
have been accustomed to the wide
open saloons with its crowd of
miners and prospectors making
life gay around the gambling
tables and bar. Now they see the
games of chance removed , screens
down from the windows of the sa
loons , chairs and tables cleared out
and all seems new to the lookeron.
Some say it is a spasmodic re
form movement of the anti-saloon
people which will last a month or
so and then the "lid will come
off. " World-Herald.
