REPUBLICAN PARTY ON TRIAL.
When Caleb Powers sought con
tributions from postmasters through
out the country he.delared that the
Republican party in Kentucky was
on trial, The evidence recently
produced at the trial seems to bear
Youtsey produces an agreement
signed by Powers "waiving the
truth or falsity" of an affidavit
made by Youtsey for the assistance
of Powers after both were con
victed. In the agreement Powers
promises not to make the affidavit
public and return it within fifteen
days. The affidavit was given at
the instance of a federal official,
whose name Youtsey gives a fed
eral official, who was a son of a Re
publican judge and who desired the
affidavit to use with Republican
members of the court of appeals to
secure a new trial for Powers.
Youtsey's testimony is strength

difficult for anyone, after reading
it, to deny that the killing of Goe

formed among Republican officials
and carried out with a shameless

The Democratic state convention
held at Columbus, Neb., August 25,
was an enthusiastic gathering. The
Kansas City platform was reaf
firmed and state issues were metand
dealt with in true democratic spirit.
Judge John J. Sullivan, now chief
justice of the Nebraska supreme
court, was renominated.
Judge Sullivan has made a good
record and adhered to the rule
which in his speech of acceptance
be laid down for the guidance of all
judges that the one thing above all
others that should characterize the
conduct of a judge is "independent
absolute judicial independece."
The nominees for regent of the
state university, William O. Jones
of Adam county and Dr. E. O.
Weber of Saunders county, are good
men. Professor Jones is well
known as an educator, although he
is not now actively engaged in
educational work. He is a man of
large experience and an energetic
student. Dr, Weber is a young
man who stands high among his
neighbors; and should these gentle
men be elected, it may be depend

materially tothe welfare oftNebras

van did not ask, indeed, did not
desire a renomination but he could
not avoid the honor and it came to
him because the democrats and
populists of Nebraska' recognize
that it is important to the people of
this state that Judg Sullivan be re
elected, He owes his renomination
to the good record he has made
during six years of faithful services
on the supreme bench of the state,
and if the people of Nebraska fail
to indorse that record at the polls,

PLAYING FOR TRUST SUPPORT.
Every Republican who imagines
that Mr. Rooseveli is really de.
termined to "shackle cunning as in
the past we have shackled force,"
and that he is willing to stand for
the people's interests against the
schemes of the financiers and the
trusts magnates should read the
interesting dispatch printed in the
Chicago Record-Herald of Monday
August 24, from Walter Wellman,
its Washington correspondent.
Mr, Wellman says: 'i The" im
portant point and the new point is
that President Roosevelt is behind
this currency reform scheme push
ing as only he knows how to push.
He organized and promoted the
effort." And then Mr. Wellman
asked. "Why is President Roose
velt so much interested in currency
Mr. Wellman 's reply to his own
question is so interesting that it
deserves the widest possible publi
cation. He says:
"Mr. Roosevelt's masterly skill
as a politician has been employed
so successfully that no one suspects
he is a politii lan the best test in
the world. Having become the
most popular man in the United
States and having won the enthusi
astic approval of the masses by his
fight upon the trusts and the corpora
tions, Mr. Roosevelt not long ago
began to cast about for methods by
which he might even up. He had
the people with him, buUhe trusts,
the corporations, the financial lead
ers, the bankers were hostile. This
hostility was centered in New York.
It chanced that in New York and
among these very people there was
a general ahd earnest desire for a
reformation of our currency system.
The president has gone in for that
reformation with his accustomed
ardor and energy, and it will tiot
be his fault if the financial people
of New York do not soon look on
him with more favor."
It is generally understood that
Mr. Wellman is nearerto the Roose
velt administration than any other
newspaper correspondent. Certain
ly no correspondentis more friendly
to that administration than is Mr.
Wellman; and it is interesting to
be told by this administration cor
respondent that"feelingthathe has
the trusts and the corporation's."
Mr. Roosevelt proceeds to display
his "masterly skill as a politician
by seeking to win over to him the
representatives of the trusts and
According to this administration
correspondent, Mr. Roosevelt dis
covered "that in New York and
among these very people, the trusts
and corporations, there was a gener
al and earnest desire for a reforma
tion of our currency system," and
also that "the president has gone
in for that reformation with his
accustomed ardor and energy and
it wjll not be his fault if the financial
people of New York bo not soon
look upon him with more favor "
A very frank and candid confes
sion, indeed, and perfectly in line
with the idea which Democrats
generally have entertained of Mr.
Roosevelt's disposition to "shackle
cunning as in the past we have
Mr. Editor Allow me to speak a few
words in favor of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. I suffered for three years
vlth the bronchitis and could not sleep
at nights. I tried several doctors and
various patent medicines, but could get
nothing to give me any relief until my
wife got a bottle of this valuable medi
cine, which has completely relieved me.

A SUGGESTIVE PLAN.
To Promote Interest In Grange Work
and Increaae Membership.
Sometimes it seems to be necessary
to Introduce new methods for awak
ening a flagging interest in grange at
tendance and grange work. While con
tests between members or committees
may not always be commendable, yet
so good an authority on grange work
as Mrs. Sarah G. Balrd, master of Min
nesota state grange, has recommend
ed the following, which was tried with
good results in a Minnesota grange:
' Two ladies chose sides as in a spell
ing match. The contest lasted three
months, with two meetings each
month. The side beaten furnished a
good supper. The secretary acted as
umpire and remarked that care must
be taken not to do anything which
would cause the members to get too
much credit or be offended. The sides
alternated in furnishing a programme,
each having a chance to score a maxi
mum of 160 points at one meeting. In
addition to this, the attendance of each
persou at a meeting counted 10. The
Bide which had the most at roll call
got 80. The roll was called at 8:30 p.
m. An application counted '00. An
essay counted 25; a crop report by
farmer counted 30. He could secure
four men to speak on it with a credit
of 5 points each. In a similar manner
a lady could write an essay and se
cure four ladies to discuss It Select
reading counted 10, a recitation 15, a
dialogue 20, a wedding 100. This con
test brought sixty-five applications for
membership. The plan can be varied
to suit conditions.
