If bicycle riders would all be decent
in their actions no great objection
would be made to riding on sidewalks,
but they are not all decent. It isn't
fair to have a rider come down the
center of a sidewalk and force the ped
estrian off the walk, to which treat
ment this writer has been subjected
dozens of times, and many other citi
zens make the same complaint. All
that is demanded of the bicyclist is
that he recognize that other people
have some rights.
Pays Last County Bond,
County Treasurer Durbin last Wed
nesday paid bond No. 13 of the North

bond of that issue and was also the last I
bond outstanding against Lincoln

now no outstanding indebtedness. There
are precincts bonds, but no county
bonds. This is certainly an excellent
showing for the county, and one in
which we have reason to congratulate

Clash at Chicago.
The republican national convention
opened in Chicago Tuesday at noon,
and from the opening hour up to the
latest bulletin thore nas been a contin
ual clash between the Taft and Roose
velt forces. Tho lie has frequently
passed, threats of bolting have been
made, and part of the time the confu
sion has been beyond the control of tho
chairman. Wednesday Roosevelt openly
recommended a bolt of his followors,
but his managers, or least somo of his
most prominent followors, declined to
participate in such action.
, So far the Taft followers hove
triumphed, but only after the most ox
citing fighting. Senator Poot, the Taft
candidate lor temporary chairman was
electetl over McGovern, of Wis., who
supported by both the Roosevelt and
LaFollotte followers. The second test
of the Taft strength came Wednesday
when tho convention by a vote of 563
to 510 retained the ninetv-two Tart
contested delegates and to transfer the
light to the credential committee, this
committee went into session yesterday
afternoon, nnd will probably report
this foronoon. The adoption or rejec
tion of this report will renew the strug
gle, and the most bitter fight of the
convention may bo expected today.
Undoubtedly the majority of the re
publicans throughout the country would
prefer to have both Taft and Roosevelt
dropped and have a dark horse taken
up, nnd such may yet be the result.
