THE NORFOLK NEWS : FRIDAY , SEPTEMBER 25 , 1908.
It will bo found that the freeze has not Blunted ( ho growth of tlio coal bill. i Some of tho.so Nebraska ears of , corn , If hollowed otit nnd finished up , properly , would almost nmko n IIO\IHI \ > . ( * The clear-up following tlio front , IH natlnfactory nt leant , especially to tlio I managements of fairs nnd carnivals. The Salvation Army IH to adopt i rough rider uniforms for Its cavalry > assault on HII tlmt has taken root In I the hearts of ttio KuntuuUy foudlsts. ' Omaha people are hoping that tlio i flrcat Wi'storn may fix tlio freight rates HO that city may become ii grain market , Romutlilni ; that IIIIH long boon | hut never attained , owing tea a discrimination In rates. It now appears that tlio people of ( Indlnna | > ollH did actually HUO an nlr- ntilp , but that It WIIH merely a model nindu of papur and ( ho figures of nion behold wuro dummies. ThlH cloarH Indianapolis whisky of an onerous The frost Hiiro did come , nnd thoHO who have boon worrying over ItH pos- Blblo visitation will now have the op portunity to look for some other cause of worry If they are fully de termined to keep on with tholr pro gram of worry. The revival of the Yankton , Nor folk & Southwestern rumor , comes almost too late to connect It up with the expression that "It will bo com pleted before snow flies , " but Its late start this year may warrant the dig ging up of that phrase early next spring. If North and South Dakota , Mon tana , Colorado and Wyoming had not got smart nnd brought on that snow storm HO early In the season , No- i ; braska might have escaped that frost. 1 Nebraska is in a bnd neighborhood . , nnd should move to n place where the neighbors nro not so chilly. The Irrlgatlonlsts nro strenuous In their efforts to prove philanthropists , They not only propose to nmko two blades of grass grow where but one grow before ; but will endeavor to have tons of it grow where nouo has ever before found root nnd sustenance. With the nipping of vegetation It may bo expected that the political pot will begin to boll with increased vig or. In two weeks more the republic- nns and democrats of Madison county will hnvo full tickets In the Hold and October will be n month of much nc- tivlty In the political Held. Bulgaria's notice to the powers that the Turkish massacres must be stopped or that country will bo forced into war Indicates that the people nro of about the right metal , nnd many of the peoples of the world would not blame them If they should engage In such a war without the aid or consent of the powors. Carrie Nation Is one of the people of the country who cannot adnilro President Hoosovelt , and has criti cised the man and his administration. It was to ho expected. Hut It will bo noticed that few cranks of one kinder or another are nssalling the president. Even the democrats have little fault to Hud with him. Great Britain Is evidently desirous of taking in some of the prosperity ' with which the United States has been favored , oven though It should bo nec essary to go back on free trade and adopt a system of protection along the line that has been In use in this country with such magnificent suc cess for a number of years. The Northwestern ofllclals arc among the first to attempt round-the- world excursions , traveling west via the now American possessions. It af fords an excellent opportunity tc those who have the price to visit the territory recently acquired by the United States In the far east , and In addition a chance to take In the other sights on the trip around the globe. Tlio plan is unique in western railroad en terprise , and It is hoped that it will be of such success thnt they may find it profitable to have them frequently. Mrs. Russcl Sage has nothing but contempt for the American girls whoso ambition it Is to marry n titled foreigner. Mrs. Sago made a very clever selection herself nnd Is evi dently of the opinion thnt there are as good fish In the sea on this side of the pond as over were caught oven at this late day and age. It Is cer tain that few of the tltlo-marryhiR girls will succeed in getting a money maker to equal our own Uncle Russ , Ho is the peer of any titled foreigner oven If he will not let loose of his wad. It will bo noticed thnt the demo cratic move for a non-partisanship judiciary is always made in years where thnt party's candidat.es had nc hope of RUCCOHR iinlcnn they could succeed In bamboo/ling the people. There wan no effort to aid the repub licans when Judge Sullivan ran the first time , nor yet when ex-Oovernor llolcomh WIIH elected. They thought that by getting the populist votes coming their way they had a cinch on the oIllo.OH , nnd they did at that time , but now it Is different. They are earnestly In for non-partisanship provided mich non-partisanship will Influence the voter to support Sulli van -nnd republicans are considered extremely clever fellows If they will be non-partisan long enough to de liver the hlgheHt judicial honor to a democrat. It appearH that their fusion with the popullHts , having been so unprofltably Hliort In Its desired effect , the demo crats would now work a idirowd polit ical scheme to fimo with the repub licans. Otherwise , that on a plea of non-partlHaimhlp In districts where there Is no hope for u democratic vic tory they will eiidorHo the republican candidates , hoping thereby to Interest the repiibllcann In voting for theli candidate tor mipromo juuge. u uiuy had commenced at the other end and endorsed the republican state ticket , there might have been evidence of sincerity , or had they given up their candidates where they had majorities It would have sounded hotter. It In not worthy of note when none but hope less minorities nro surrendered to the people. Something unique in a south Platte paper Is an acknowledgment from the Lincoln Star that the north Platte country has some merits that arc de serving of recognition. In speaking of the territory in n wrlto-up of a trip to IJonostool , 8. D. , n staff correspond- out of the paper nays : "It in now regarded ( hat the north Platte coun try contains some of the host agricul tural districts in the state and In many of the places the best crops in the west are produced. The Northwes tern made n bold stroke when it loft Fremont and wont northwest to Nor folk nnd opened up n delightful coun try. Corn nnd grains of all kinds thrive abundantly nnd the glories of this territory have been told In the exhibits at state and county fairs. It Is a picturesque country and well deserves the mention which has been made of It. Hut less Is known of the territory beyond , between Norfolk and Verdlgre , wiucn until mm year was the terminal of the railroad coun try. Out of Norfolk the road enters a rich hay district that forms some of the largest cattle ranches In Ne braska and these cattle only Illustrate the value of the farms. Corn Is also raised and some wheat and oats ; but tlio farmers and stock raisers have discovered the secret of the north land and have found that It IK better to convert the products Into beef before - fore selling them , and they have made the cattle Industry the strength and foundation of their fortunes. Sugar beets are raised In all this country and the sugar sent to all parts of the country. " PAKE STORIES. It Is to hoped that every voter will have the good sense to use his judg ment and reasoning power in regard to the fake stories of Judge Barnes being the "railroad candidate" for the supreme jndgeshlp. In the first place those who person ally know Mr. Hnrnes are satisfied that there Is not n crooked streak in htm , but that he Is straight ns a pine and sound as an oak. Hut the major Hy of those who must cast their volt for or against him at the coming elec tlon have neither the pleasure noi the profit of such acquaintance , ant must form their opinions from whai they hear and read. It Is these when wo ask to use reason. No one will accuse the railroad pol Itlclans of being fools. It Is well am notoriously known that they are th < sharpest , shrewdest fellows In th < business. Therefore If they really desire sire the election of Barnes , why shouli they make the desire public , slnco b ; parading the matter before the pub lic the opposition has already admitted thnt known railroad endorsement Is a detriment to any candidate. It Is certainly not because the railroad men cannot keep a secret , for they are acknowledged to bo past masters in thnt art. Rather would the fact of their open preference for a man Indi cate that they desired his defeat. But again , grant that the railroads did favor Barnes' nomination , and oven that does not compromise Barnes in any manner whatsoever. The rail roads could not have secured power enough In the convention to have de feated Barnes and they know it. In the circumstances they had bettor ap pear to favor a sure winner than to risk his enmity after probable elec tion. tion.Tho The truth of It is that the opposi tlon papers can find no fault witli Harnes' ability or record , and they are seeking to estrange his supporters by misrepresentation. It Is all on the snmo par with fusion anything foi spoils and ctfllco , nnd principle be d d. Schuylor Sun , It wan probably the hard lifting that Sir Thomas did to ralno that cup which brought on the attack of ap pendicitis. The Wlnsldo Tribune Is of the opin ion that Douglas Cones of Pierce IH butting Into a ntono wall. Is It then Stonewall Hoyd ? This warm weather Is fine and all right , hut there are many people win ; will question the wisdom of the weather man In letting that heavy frost Hllp In ahead of It. There nro n number of falrH , carnl vnls , etc. , that nro trying the export ment of butting into the autumnal equinox , as Norfolk did last year , anil the equinox appears to bo assorting his capacity as a successful dampcnci aH much an ho did during the Norfoll event. Stnto Superintendent Fowler re pertH that tlio demand for schoo teachers over the statu In one Urn IB not being filled with any remark able celerity. It seems that the conn tor demand for women to preside ovei newly erected firesides Is responsible for a pinch in the market. During August the American coal miners dug out of the ground 5,160- 400 tons of anthracite , which should bo sufllclent to supply the majority of American families using that fuel , but the barons evidently Intend to keep it until consumers nro able or willing to dig up the price asked. It will bo found when the time for gathering It in arrives , that Nebraska has millions of bushels of magnif icent corn and that there will bo no stock starving to death for lack of food and no persons suffering for a corn pone if their appetite craves it. Professor Wiley IB to have another squad of government employes on adulterated stuff. This time it is to bo wines and drinks , nnd it is an ticipated thnt there will bo a great demand on the part of the various employes of the departments to re ceive free drinks nt government ex pense. President Stlcknoy of tno Great Western certainly has a flattering way of attracting the attention of the people ple to his road. Ills optimistic utterances - | ancos regarding the west are the kind thnt put the people in a mood to wel come n competing line of railway , and to set asldo n little of their business for it. It is said that a gang of sharpers are now working in some of the cities m a C. O. D. packngo scheme , which results In their getting the money nnd their victim drawing worse than a gold brick. Those who read the papers are being put next to the fake nnd are saving themselves numerous dollars and much chagrin. The American Grape Acid associa tion of California has posted a reward of 125,000 that will be paid to the chemist or the scientist who will solve the problem of extracting cream of tartar from grapes. This should set a number of the smart chemists of the countrY to working over time with the prospect of that nice little wad before their mind's eye. The London milliners have hit upon the scheme of publicity to collect bills long duo from some of the wealthy and fashionable people of the Eng lish metropolis. They have threat ened to publish names In the Official Gazette which would make the debt ors ineligible to attend court func tions , and the threat has done won ders toward making some of them pay up. The total amount duo to five prominent costumcrs is moro than $200.000. The English people nro not taking kindly to the manner thnt the Amer ican people who have gone to Can ada have of naming the streets of the towns they have laid out. To name thorn nfrnr l.lnonln flrnni nml Clnr. . Held Is bad enough , but when they rub It in by calling the principal av enue of the town "Washington" pa tience ceases to bo a virtue and the British rise up in indignant protest , and Insist on names not so pronounc edly and patriotically American. The Omaha World-Herald Is mak ing a pretty fight In support of Judge Sullivan's position on the famous Bl blo decision , and calls on the repub lican papers to publish the opinion rendered , but Inasmuch as many of them have not taken up the case against the judge it is dllllcult to see wherein they should take It up in his behalf at the behest of the Omaha pa per. If the Blblo case Is forced into the campaign It will give It n char acter that no one should particularly desire. Illinois has n way of dealing with lynchors that may bo expected to bo discouraging to Judge Lynch in that state. Ten members of the mob who attempted to break Into the jail nt Danville to lynch a man , have been given , .permission . to enter the peni tentiary and work for the ntato with out compensation. If mob law was treated likewise in all states there would noon bo an unpopularity at tached to the method that would bo discouraging to would-bo lynchern. The latest from Colombia Is that there is no hope for the isthmian ca nal treaty. No extension of time has boon asked by that government and the time limit In which it can bo ac cepted expires today. It would seem , therefore , that the Colombians nro not desirous of having the United States dig that ditch , but they may live to regret their action in the mat ter , as this country will some day control Hiich a canal nnd will bo under no obligation to that government In Its management. It IH really opposi tion of thin kind that makes the average - ago person holding residence In the United StateH determined , nnd with the convening of congress Colombia will undoubtedly be shown a sample of such determination the kind that wins. * UKKIN1SU. NON-PAHTIHANSHU . The fusIonlstH arc making a very attractive grand stand play for a nonpartisan - partisan Judiciary that Is they pro pose to give all they can of nothing for enough votes to elect Judge Sul livan If the republicans will permit the wool to be drawn over their eyes without n protest or an effort to as certain how deep this "patriotic" sen timent runs. The chief object , per haps , In making this n non-partisan campaign is that the democratic clerk of the supreme court and all his dem ocratic retlnuo may bo kept in office. In this department there has not been enough non-partisanship apparent to give a republican oven a minor po sition since thtr fualonists have had a majority on the bench. There has been something in these appoint ments and non-partisanship could by no means bo stretched far enough to mean that a republican should have any salary or glory that may be dis pensed from there. Non-partisanship , from a fusion standpoint , was meant for a purpose altogether different from giving any ofllccs or chances for olllce away. To make tholr manifestations ap pear sincere they consented to give up nominations in certain districts , which is quite a concession from a democratic standpoint , as the dem ocratic itch for office or any rescm- blonce thereto Is permanent nnd all- pervading , nnd to give up even this r/aist be considered a concession. However this is all they give , and should be accepted at its true merit from a voter's standpoint. In the second district , composed of Cass and Otoo counties , the republi cans have a majority , a certain ma jority , ranging from ' 500 to 800 and there is no possibility of n fusionist being elected. With a fusion nominee the best and strongest man those parties could muster Paul Jessen , who Is the republican nominee and very popular with all parties , would have been elected by a majority of anywhere from 1,000 to 2,000. Here the fusionlsts have endorsed the republican nominee. Gave up ab solutely nothing but the expense and chagrin of making a hopeless cam paign , and in return they want re publican votes where they will do tlio most good for their nominee for the supreme Judgeshlp. In the Third district Lancaster county It Is different , being worse and more of It. The district Is safely republican by a plurality of from 2,000 to H.OOO and here also the fu sionlsts have magnanimously con sented to withdraw from the Held and endorse the republican nominee , hoping for a substnntilnl remunera tion In votes for the fusion state ticket. And no worry or work or ex pense attached as there would be with a fusionist in the Held. In the fourth district the plot is deeper and there is more at stake than anywhere else. The district's republican majority is well and cer tainly up In the thousands , and the republicans have kindly consented to advance a few of the fusion nominees in return for an endorsement of the republican nominees , which is n big concession , but to be certain that that they are not taking the worst end of the deal the fustonists will hero In sist that the republicans owe them n few votes for the head of the fusion state ticket. Hero there are fifteen candidates in the Held for ten posi tions and some of them nro certain to be elected. In nil other districts of the stntc where the fusionlsts hnvo any sorl of a show of winning they are plac Ing candidates In the Hold and preparing paring for an aggressive campaign with their desire for non-partlsanshlr conflned solely to the state ticket In favor of Judge Sullivan. Four year ? ago eight districts of the flfteen Ir the state elected fusion judges nml they nro giving nwny no chances ol having this repeated , but nro making their non-partisan play lit districts hopelessly lost to them on the vor > start. How willingly the world Imposes on an Easy Mark. The last thing n man wants in n wlfo is "social requirements. " The agents say that the towns nro worked to death , and they will move to the country.

Roasting ears have become so tougl that a man no longer has such a gooc time in eating them that ho forgeti how ho looks. When you make a request of a rail road man , nnd ho says ho will "take it up , " ho is going to give you n chance to forget lt. % When a man Is industrious , and it is reported that ho IB "doing well , " men who want to borrow money take up half his time.

If you own a elder mill , you will have many opportunities to loan it at this season. We would like to bor row one , as a matter of fact. The women are to wear suspenders this winter to keep their skirts nnd waists together , and the baby need no longer flght for the possession of the safety pin. When a girl who works down town , boasts to her associates thather father hates to have her work , and that it is self , she makes herself unpopular with them , and they do not believe her.

Story so old It may be new to young people : A traveling man wont intc n country restaurant and ordered r porterhouse steak two inches thick broiled with butter , and mushrooms on the side.

H < has seven shirts ; four with pockets nnd three without , and time files sc fast thnt ho seems to bo wearing one of the undesirable three all the time Corner n coward , and ho is danger ous. The farmers are telling a story of the EfHnghnm picnic which may not be true.bnt which illustrates this fact. Four men wont In together to sell beer. Two of the men were brothers , and well known scrappers. The other two were brothers nnd well known cow ards. The four men had a quarrel , and the scrappers decided to whip the cowards. But they knew they were so timid that it would bo neces sary to deceive them. So they invited the cowards into a secluded room on pretense of taking a drink , and mak ing up. After the four men were in the room , tlio scrappers locked the doors , nnd announced that the cow ards would have to take a whipping. The cowards begged and tried to got out , but the scrappers spat on their hands , and took off their coats , nnd the flght began. Seeing they wore Infer for it , the cowards then did their best. A man who saw the two scrappers In the hands of the doctors , says there wasn't n spot on them as big as n dollar that didn't show a bruise or a cut. The cowards were so badly scared that they didn't quit when the other follows wore whipped , and kept on throwing hatchets and beer bottles , and throwing thorn effectively. 4 MenofOaK Timbers of oak keep the old homestead standing through the years.
