SENATOR BURKETT From The Blair rilot. Decomlxir 8, 1000. Shall Senator Burkett be returned to hia seat in the uoner branch of Con- stress 7 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 Wisoon- progressivo prO' greasing. 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 ground. 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 insurgents in the senate who succeed ed in bringing that body to a stricter compliance with party obligations, He htood for tarriff revision downward, and what he and bis associates failed to eet incorporated into law was in art obtained by the President in con ference on the bill, after whiou (senator Bnrkett voted for its passage. lie stands shoulder to shoulder with the President in favor of the demands of the west and of the manses with respect to tariff lepiilntiou 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 fearing citizenship of a great state mfcV expect of its representatives in hiirh Dittoes. Notwithstanding nis long service ho is still young, energet io and ambitious. He is growing every day and is more capable of rendering better servioe in the future tuan ue has civen in the past. Influence comes with knowledge ana exnenenoo. ruis is especially true iu the United States senate, where senior itv civet erestieo.
