Harman for rail way commissioner they nominated a man who knows the facts from the peoples standpoint. lie is a traveling man wno was born id southwestern Nebraska, grew un and was educated in Nebraska, and has been traveling as a sales man in Nebraska for many years. He is not a lawyer, bnt he doe know a lot about the practical side of t Kings. He knows what the traveling public wants and deserves to have, and what the freight payers want and deserve to have. The two hold-over mem oers of the commission hail front within fifty miles of the Missouri river. Mr. Harman hails from the southwestern part of the state. His election will more equally dis titlbute the representation noon the commission. He is a man of splendid ability, a tireless worker and pledged to give the people an intelligent, common-sense administration of the office. The voters should remember that the railway commission deals with other than railroad questions. It has to do with all the public service cor porations. Clarence E. Harman is fitted by experience and ability to give the people intelligent serviee. ANDREW. M. MORRISSEY.

He . studied law while working at anything he could find to do to earn an hosent livelihood, and was admitted -to the bar. He practiced in northwestern Nebrsaka for a number of years, and his reputation for ability soon extended beyond the bounds of the state. Handling important eases involving larc in terests, he found himself, pitted against the foremost attorneys of Nebraska and adjoining states, and he always gave a satisfactory account of himself. " About two years ago he removed from Valen tine, where he had had practiced for a number of years, and located in Lincoln. Last spring his friends in the northwest insisted opoa his filing for the demorcatic nomination for attorney general, and . he yielded. His standing as an attorney and as a citizen amoa the people of the northwest, where he had lived, man and boy, for years, was attested by the handsome vote given him, and be was nominated by a handsome majority over an unusually strong op ponent. .

She ought to be making every one of them known to all the world. Nebraska is remiss in her duty to herself when she fails to advertise her resources and possibilities to the remotest corners of the earth. Nebraska has some mighty big things, thank yon. She has the largest creamery plant in the world. Her largest city, Omaha, is the greatest butter market in th world. . - She has the third largest packing center in the world. She has the second largest smelter in the world. ' She is the third largest corn producer. She is the third largest dairying state, and promises to be the largest inside of ten years. . Her annual egg output is worth more than the gold output any state or territory. Her annual butter, egg and poultry output is worth mere thaw the gold and silver output of any two states or territories. Her annual output of eorn and wheat is worth more than the nation's annual output of crude petroleum, Her annual output of grains and grasses is worth more than the coal output of Pennsylvania. Her annual corn output is worth more than the nation's asnwal output of copper. Judge William N. Gemmiil. sitting la the Chicago court of domestic rela tions as the successor to Judge Charles N.

The great Beeves Co.. which makes engines and thresher and such things, has been convinced that Lincoln is the logical dw tibuting center for their line of goods. As a result they have let a contract for a warehouse and ofliee building to cost $40,000. The new building will be located on the Northwestern tracks and will be one of the best buildings of the kind in the country. And oue of the things that makes us tired is the action of the city authorities in hampering such companies as the Reeves Co. by issuing orders that they must not run their big traction engine over the paved streets. Pray how are these people to do business if they are not allowed to get their goods out of the warehouses? And who is paying for that pavement, anyhow f We wish there was enough business in Lincoln to wear out every foot of pavement every year or two. They can't wear the pavement out any too fast to soil aw, providing they do it by reason of enormous business traffic. It about time we canned a few of the men of this city. who. having: enough for themselves, are trying to make it almighty hard for the rest of us to get something. Let's think a lot more about build in u; business and considerably less about knocking the varnish off the pavements. RAILROAD MILEAGE, Nebraska did not make much of a showing in the matter of increased railroad mileage during the last twelve months. Th Union Pacific laid a few miles of double track and is building a new line up through ScottsblurT -county. The Fnion Pacific is also building between Hastings and Gibbon. But five Nebraska counties eontinTte to be without railroad mileage, while four or five have Jiess than thirty miles each.
