STATEHOOD FOR NEW MEXICO"' We favor the Immediate admission of the territories of New Mexico and Arizona an separate states In the Union. Republican National Platform. eJAe Bryan Ken, Roost Who broke the lock on the hon house door? Once again Bryan comes to the front with the statement that his policies Dave been stolen. This time he accuses Taft of an attempt to get away with the entire Democratic platform, and cites Taffs speech of acceptance as proof thereof. It Is still fresh in the public mind that Bryan acused Roosevelt of steal ing his policies and putting some of them Into effect. Prior to that during a campaign, he accused the entire Republican party Of stealing his thunder. Words can not express the sympathy due Bryan upon this occasion. Aft er years of thinking, which has produced a bald spot on his crown and a growing circulation for the Commoner, Bryan says he has evolved a set of policies which have been bodily carried away by his political opponents, leaving him nothing on which to stand. Nothing better illustrates the absolute weakness of the Nebraskan In Attempting to pick holes In the Republican platform and In the policies which Mr. Tatt has outlined in his speech of acceptance than this statement that the Bryan policies have again been stolen. Bryan should by all means devote a little of his gray matter to working vp some syntem whereby his policies can be protected. He might have trtem copyrighted, he might employ a detective to carry them for him; he might put them In the refrigerator with the cold ham and the milk bottle, or lie might Bew them up in the lining of his undershirt. But by all means, those policies ought to be protected. This makes at least the third occasion upon which they have been boldly tolen, according to Mr. Bryan, and the time Is ripe for action. Once was bad enough, twice was worse, but the third time is really un bearable. However. Mr. Brvan Is ciulte adept In Inventing policies, so it Is likely that he will not suffer severely nor long, from his present beggared position. Very probably he still has a few old ones left about the house some where. True they may be somewhat ragged and fruyed, but with a little burnishing they might be made to do. Take for instance that good old sixteen to one. The Citiaen Is not sure tut It believes at last reports that policy was still In Mr. Bryan's possession. While assuredly it is not ail that it should be for the present emergency, till It would be absolutely safe from theft and Mr. Bryan might use It for the time being. It is quite distinctive, very good as an advertising medium and leaves considerable room for oratory. Whatever policies Mr. Bryan might have would not materially change the result of the November election, so it can matter little in the long run to the Nebraskan. By the time the next four years roll around, there is no doubt but that the versatility of Mr. Bryan will .have produced another unique set of poli cies and It is then that the hen house door should be securely locked and some one employed to mount guard with a shotgun. Hut under present conditions, there seems to be no remedy at hand and Mr. Brvan will Just have to make the best of it. However, as a suggestion, Mr. injured feelings and snoop about a bit. Mayhap he might be able to swipe something from Brother Taft whicj would be of material benetit to him. At aU events it could do him no harm to get out into the open and nnrf out what the American public really wants and embody those needs In his platform and speech of acceptance. In that event, there would be no danger of any one robbing the hen roost and he might stand some show of being president some day. Perhaps Taft may be naughty but the public Just now is of the opinion that he will do, which is more, much more, than it accedes to William J. n.i.. t-iv.,,.,1- w r,if.e in imm -iifnnt to Conitress at the head of our lieve that is the right thing to do now n,i loei.al action of not Jority) of the delegates to the territorial Republican convention in August -in .ii ... m Ue-n It there bv his renomination.

Baldwin succeeds In ful filling the requirements of the gov ernment in the trial fights of his mil itary dirigible at Fort Myer he will receive $6,750. Count Zeppelin will receive one lutlf million dollars from the German government if "all the requirements ore fulfilled by his air ship. The latter machine is twenty five times as large as Captain Bald win's dirigible. Vet Captain Baldwin contends that in the aeronaut which he has built for the army he has Incorporated new ideas which will be eventually adopt ed by other nations in the construc tion of dirigibles. These new fea tures are embodied in the ags envel oep of Captain Baldwin's machine. which differs widely from the Zeppe lin, the Republlque, the French d.r'g lble, und tile Null! Secundus, the lirltish military dirigible. By his own process of vulcanizing lubber, Cuptain Baldwin asserts, he has made a material Unit will stand ' a strain of ninety-five pounds to the inch strip and Is not uffected by eith er heat or cold. In addition, there is practically no elasticity to a gas bag made of this material, thus mak ing a rigid balloon without the use of a frame. The rubber skin is lined on both sides with the best Japanese silk adding considerably to the strength of the envelope. Midway between the ends of the gas bag, which is slightly more than 90 feet long, is a balloon net twenty-five feet long, into which air can be pumped to counterbalance the altera tions in bulk due to changes in at mosphere pressure or contraction of the gas due to heat or cold. A "wid ow" permits the aeronnut to look within the gas envelope. The car or framework of Captain Baldwin's airship is suspended from the envelope hy nienns of a squnre mesh netting which Is the creation of Captnin Baldwin. The Nulll Secundus. the British army dirigible, has a can vas casing to which the car Is sus pended, while Count Zeppelin hns an aluminum envelope entirely sur rounding the numerous balloons which gave buoyancy to his ship. Although the capacity of Ciptaln Mul ! :n's gas bag Is 1-ss than one f"litti thai of the British dirigible, ts iiftiiii; capacity Is nearly as great. "There are many things that should he on my dirigible which I have not been able to usP because of the speci fications an.l the low cost at which the ship was necessarily constructed." sail Captain Baldwin while working upon the assembling of his machine at Fort Myer. Among the attachments lacking. Captain Baldln pointed nut are the Immovable blades or fins at- tiched to the envelope, which add much to the equilibrium of the air ship. Two mechanics have arrived from the Ci. H. Curtis works at Hammonds port and are assisting Captain Bald win In preparing the machine for Its initial flight, which probably will take place next Saturday.

DAILY SHORT STOKltS THE LIGHTS THAT PALED. By Stuart B. t'tone, A dozen engine bells ding-donged ill the great shed. In the last of the crowd came Arthur Windom, the clubman, and lltt.e Minna Bell of the h.ll country, .uiiiiirt had a very pretty pink in her cheeks und the glint of her hair and eyes were big brown things that seem iil always afraid. It was the pink and the glint and the look of fright that had captured Arthur Windom. The naturalness of the Minna of the hiils had done whut the powder and the rouge of the ladica of the town had never done for the clubman. And now ho held her close as they brushed through the throng of bankers and married women and tramps, past the lnqu.riiig gateman and to the warm gloomy precincts of the qur Genevra of the Yellow Meteor on track 2S. Here they stowed their wonder pack ages from the 8-cent counters und Minna of the hiils uighed long and deep. For the iron prow of No. Sas there in the 10-acre shed pointed homeward to the cool, green hills and the cows and the corn. The city v,a not to the liking of the hill girl. The lights were pretty and of many pleasing colors, but there were too many of them. The buildings were grand and colossal, but Minna cured more for a weather bourded place she knew in the Kosh Konongd. The tow n was a glare and a glitter and a dazzle, of course, but there was too much of it all, and Min na nlghed again for the click of the reaper in the fields of waving wheat. Alone umong the things of the tow n the man by lur side had really ap pealed to her. Ho had appreciated her, hud made her feel sure of her self. And she hud thought that with him she might in time care for the jangling mess of wheels and bells and whistles. The Meteor flew past a labyrinth of gas tanks and smokestacks into the greenness of the suburbs and Ar thur Windom leaned over, whisper ing: "You will be very happy when you return to me. We will be mar ried In Grace church and 1 wi.l make you a queen." And .Minna of the hills sighed with the ba.it little wonderment as to what Hud Wllkins would think if he could see her now. Two hundred miies of town and country Hashed by and Minna grew restless. Putnam ville was the next station and the train might not slop, or it might not wait for her, or a thousand direful things might hap pen. .Minna picked up the bisque doll she had bought for the baby for the eleventh time, und when the Meteor came to u standstill she hardly heard the low murmuring of Arthur Win dom: Write to nie every day dear." For there were Uncle Silas and Aunt Sophia und the twliuj and the baby and Bud. Minna climbed into the rickety spi.ng wagon and Silos Anderson, Jus tice of the peace in Purdy township, sa d: " G.d app. you Baldy!' and the bay span broke Into a canter. The twins had invaded their popcorn und Aunt Sophia was crying and luughing while 1 ml did nothing but sture at the Yellow Meteor carrying Arthur Windom into the boundless weal. There came the whistle of tf'Jit in the distance and Minna sighed once more this time for Arthur Windom, club man, for h's was the life that seemed fur away, here in the dust of Milltown big road. "tied app, Baldy!" said Esquire Anderson once more, and they climb ed the rocky hill on the other side of Bateman's It was an hour later that Bud Wllkins tirst found hl tongue. The crowd was pealing apples, out Minna sat without on the low front porch In revery. "City's a mighty fine place I reckon, Minna ," he ventured, with little hope. Minna shook the gllnt-of-gold head. " 'Tulnt half as fine as dow n here In the sticks. Bud." And Bud handed Minna the biggest reddest apple of all. It was the token of the doom of Windom, the clubman. ft Gffoss Gffoss The General Demand of the Well-Infornieil of the World has always been for a simple, pleasant and efficient liquid laxative remedy of known voli'e; a laxative whicn physicians could sanction for family use because its com ponent parts are known to them to be wholesome and truly beneficial in effect, acceptable to tho system and gentle, yet prompt, in action. In supplying that demand with its ex cellent combination of Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna, the California Fig Syrup Co. proceeds along cthicul lines and relics on the merits of the laxative for its remark able success. That is one of many reasons why Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna is "iven the preference by the Well-informed.'
