Our government of the people , for the trusts and by the big stick , is the way they sing it now. It is not so glorious as it was when "equality before the law" was a characteristic phrase , and Petti- john and Towle were shouting for "four years more of prosperity , " and that "the republican party would punish its own offenders. " The trusts , monopolies , railroad corporations and capitalists are constantly shifting the burdens of experimenting and developing our country onto the government , while they stand ready with some scheme to gobble up the wealth derived from such investigations. The common people do not share equal ly in the wealth that is constantly being uncovered by the geological surveys and , the expensive investi gations which are carried on for the benefit of only a few who are able to profit at the expense of the many. It is not a fair deal to invite the stork to a feast and then serve soup in shallow plates , nor to ex pect the bear to eat meat out of a small necked bottle. If the people must stand the expense of investi gations , geological and topographi cal surveys which reveals hidden treasure , they should be protected in their share of that wealth , but the custom has been to throw it onto the market and force the sale to some one financially able to pay a small price that neither contem plates the value of government Mickey Fears Railroad Control If Republican Ticket is Elected From World Herald. Lincoln , Nebr. , Aug. 2i. "If the republican ticket is elected , I fear the railroads will still have control of the board of equaliza tion. " So declared Governor Mickey this evening. He said that Land Commissioner Eaton and Auditor Searle probably would vote in the future as they had in the past. According to indications D. C. Brian of Albion would be with Searle and Eaton. Governor Mickey also believes that the officials are unwise in their discussion of what they would have done had they known a large dividend would have been declared by the Union Pacific. From Aboard Bryan Train , From World-Herald. Chicago , 111. , Aug. 25. "Bry an's homefolk , " 114 strong , reach ed Chicago shortly before noon to day on the magnificent special train over the Great Western , the larg est train ever run from Omaha to Chicago over that road. The run to Chicago was pleasant and un eventful. Thanks to the dilligent efforts of Mayor Brown and Mayor Dahl- man and Frank Dunlop the Great Western special representative , who accompanied the tourists , the NebrasKans are having the time of their lives. The entire train is already afire with Bryan enthusiasm. In every section of every car little groups have been relating reminiscenses of the "great commoner's" strug gles and triumphs and defeats in Nebraska , from the days of his early battles to the time when he is hailed as the greatest living American. IT WAKES UP IOWA. The country through which the train passed , too , is replete with democratic , ardor. Though the hour was late , large'crowds , hur rahing for Bryan and the Ne- property nor the expense of in vestigations and surveys , but pur loins the rights of our people anc robs posterity of a lawful inherit- age. The coal lands and oil fields of the Shoshone reservation , rec ently sold in a block to a capital ist , syndicate or corporation , for a nominal sum , is said to be the richest in coal and oil in the west. Our glorious government which we have been taught to , love , anc from our earliest recollection have sung its praise in unselfish and pa triotic devotion , has fallen into the hands of pilfering pirates , who , for paltry sums , lay claim to the people's domain , and for which the people do not get so much as a mess of pottage , though their birth-right has been stolen. The theiving does not stop here. We are plundered by the tariff and by high priced , trust-controlled arti cles which of necessity we must buy. Oil is sold at immense prof its. Local prices for gasoline are now 30 cents per gallon , and has been rapidly going higher during the contemplated investigation of the Standard Oil company. There seems to be no redress for griev ances since President Eoosevelt has granted to individuals immun ity from prosecutions , and the laxness - ness in prosecution of trusts and corporations makes no hindrance and rather serves as an irritant for them to be more vigorous in their oppression , more exacting in prices and more defiant of laws of our government. braskans , met the train at Harlan , Carroll and other towns in Iowa. Early this morning as the train passed through Dubuque , la.with the great banner , "Nebraska Wel comes Bryan Home , " adorning the buffet car , sleepy heads were stuck out of the dwellings of the Dubuque households along the right-of-way and cheers for Bryan greeted the travelers. Every section of the state is rep resented on the train , and-all pas sengers bear witness to a great democratie revival in Nebraska. THEY TALK SIIALLENBEHGEK. "Shallenberger completely won our hearts in his speech at the Third district congressional con vention at Norfolk , " said Dan Stevens of Fremont. "Many of us had been for Berge , but after we heard the speech we are even more in love with Shallenberger. " "In Holt county , " said Arthur Mullen , "democrats and populists are thoroughly and harmoniously united. Shallenberger will poll an unusually heavy vote. " The same story is told by "Bry an folks" from a score of- other counties. NEWBRANCH. From the Stuart Ledger : Where did Nebraska get its anti- pass theory ? In two years from now , Uncle Joe's boom will be about the size of a sweet pea bloom in September. If the public demands democratic measures , why notjhelp the demo crats to do the business and give the party the credit ? The best man for the place is the motto of the Stuart Lodger. Be ing a republican , backed by the machine and wearing a badge does not qualify a man for office. Reformers who go astray from too great a temptation are 'better than hypocrites who deceitfully puts on the mask of reform to reap the benefits of public patronage. There is nothing to awe one in the spectacle of harmony and dis patch in the Kinkaid convention at Kearney. Mr. Kinkaid picked his men and he is one of the quietest , smoothest politicians in the state. He is an artist in the study of col or and effect. The Roosevelt reforms that gave him his popularity among the people ple were chiseled from Bryan's re forms. Roosevelt had the courage to see and to do the right things , after Bryan , the great moralist and preacher in politics , pointed out the evils , of trust legislation. To day these two great leaders are more united on political issues than are the leading mon of both parties. The newspapers , are throwing slings at Bryan because he earns § 1 000 a week writing for the asso ciated press while he is in Europe. The power to think independently is the greatest mental endowment that can be bestowed upon man. There are so many little think shops in the world , they can afford to pay a big price to the brain prod- cuts of a Bryan. There will never be any law against the monopoly of brain power. D. M. Stuart , the republican can didate for the 50th legislative dis trict , is the best type of citizen and business man. But he is put up by men , who would use honorable men for selfish , deceitful and dis honorable purposes. The leader are maskers , grafters and hypo crites , endorsing any reform that will keep them in favor with the people ? Can' Mr. Stuart do the square thing by the county , behold ing to such a body and surrounded by nothing but a scrapping set of selfish lawmakers in the legislature ? Mr. Stuart has a fine Christian wife and a lovely family. He is a cred it tw the party , but what will his brother partisans do for him ? Nebraska re publicans have made themselves a laughing stock for the world at large. There has been no vital principle at stake to dignify and exalt the campaign as there was in Iowa. It has been engaged in a low demagogic warfare that has its origin and aim in thirst for personal power. It is not a fight for principle , but a cheap dog-show scramble for office. Corporation candidates , politicians and news papers have waved the banner of corporate reform. Every honest republican knows that the game has been one vast play of pretense , de ceit and dishonesty. The party is in the hands of schemers and graft ers , who are taking advantage of the public denunciation of trusts simply to reap the personal gain. Resolutions. Valentine W. C. T.
