people. The state is what its people
make it. We are air dependent upon
each other. The welfare of the towns
and the surrounding farms depends
upon a spirit of kindly co-operation
between those who live in town and
those who live upon the farm. With
out splendid litlle inland towns we
would have a rural atmosphere which
would drive every bright country l»oy
and girl to the cities—while without
the farms the towns would wither
and die. Even so it is with our great
commonwealth as a whole—a com
monwealth which for its own sake
and for the sake of the great nation
of which it is a part should contrib
ute its full share to the “New Day”
to which the President referred so
beautifully in a recent address—a
day fraught with better understand
ing and justice for every man or in
terest, whether great or small. At
this moment there are a half milliou
men out of work in New York City,
nearly 300.000 in Chicago, almost 100,
000 in St. Louis, while the Kansas
City Commercial Club for the lirst
time in the history of tliat splendid
city is grappling with the problem of
thousands of idle men. Truly it is a
time to think!
The Course of Empire.
Slowlv but surely the course of em
pire i> mo\ in# westward. Her lands
impoverished in fertility, New Eng
land, as well as the great nations of
the Old World, today look to the Corn
Belt for foodstuffs—and sooner or
later the center of this mighty nation's
wealth will he found here amid the
rich valleys of the Missouri and the
Mississippi, which, in point of pro
ductiveness, are without an equal in
any similar area upon the habitable
globe. Here our people are assured
that Nature will always sooner or later
amply reward honest thrift and indus
try. Here our families are farthest
removed from those influences which
corrode and corrupt civilis-.ation. Here
American manhood and womanhood
find their broadest opportunity, and
with a commonwealth so rich in pro
mise and so much in need of addional
capital with which to develop its re
sources, can her people do a wiser
thing than to say to the world that
every dollar invested in Nebraska en
terprise and industry sliall be permit
ted to earn a fair return for its own
er from this time forward? Would
not such a declaration be fair? Would
it not be infinitely wise as a matter
of pure business policy on behalf of
our great state?
It is because Nebraska railroads
believe that Nebraska people will be
generously fair—once they know the
truth about this great question—that
has persuaded them to make this ap
peal through the public press. In do
ing so they have tried to state their
side of the story fairly. They have
made no attack upon anyone or
sought to appeal to prejudice—and
that the reader may accord to them
the same credit for sincerity which he
claims for himself—that he may be
willing to raise his voice in defense of
their rights as he would expect others
to do in his behalf under simi
lar circumstances—this is all the rail
roads of Nebraska ask. (Paid adv)
