"At the head of a popular movement
for a reform of the ballot in this coun
try," remarks the Albany Th s, "stands
David 13. Hill." Yes, sto with a
knife for its throat; stands with a club
for its held; stands with a stumbling
block for its feet; stands with vetoes for
the measures which provide for putting
it in practice. Hill's standing as a bal
lot reformer is erpial to Benedict Arnold's
standing as a patriot, or the .Mncbcths
standing as dispensers of hospitality.
New York Tribune.
A Card receive some days ago in
forms us that Ben S. Clarke, of Weeping
"Water, has been appointed exclusive
agent for Cass county for the sale of
Henry M. Stanley's latest hook, entitled
,;In Dark Africa," and that the IIkuu.p
has been selected by his publishers as the
best medium in which to advertise the
same. Mr. Clarke also infoms u-? that
he is ready to appoint agents to lucrative
positions, and he trusts all good workers
will rush up and avail themselves of
this miraculous opportunity to make
money at once. Jir. Clarke is a well
known citizen of our sewing sister city
and the Hekalu w ishes him great success
in this his "wildest" and "darkest" un
dertaking. The statement of the bureau of statis
tics for March shows that our exports
have exceeded cir imports during the
past nine months to the extent of nearly
$ 112,000,000, whereas during the corres
ponding period of the preceding year
the excess was only 33,548,000. This
indicates that our foreign trade is in
good condition, and that the policy of
the present administration is wise and
salutary. Instead of draining the country
of its gold as free trade would do, the
whole people have made a net profit of
jf 112,000,000 on sales in foreign lands
during the year, or in other words, after
having paid for what they bought of
Europe the net surplus of $ 112,000,000
is left. No panic can take place while
we are drawing so many millions of
British gold, the country is compelled to
prosper in spite of the free trade grum
bler; under the circumstances it can ao

gument used by the advocates and sup

all theory, anil we have given actual re

well founded, and that instead of the

I The baby like plea of some property
owners that they h ive been influenced
by agents to t ike over insurance would
be very child-like indeed under any cir
cumstances, and doubly so considering
the fact that every policy contains a can
cellation agreement by w hich the assured
may cancel his insurance in whole or in
part at any time. This he could do im
mediately af:er he discovered that he
had item imposed upon by anj- agent,
and he would do the company a favor
by reporting the facts direct to ihem.
If any policy' holder believes that his
company is anxious to receive a premium
for over insurance, let him write direct
to the company stating the fact that by
oversight or otherwise he has secured
insurance amounting to more than
his property is worth. Then he will dis
cover how soon the company will take
his case in hand, and the. agent or Un
assured who has willfully procured such
over insurance will find severe treatment
in store for him at the hands of the com
pany. We will cite a case that fairly
illustrates the source of our fraud losses.
We have all the facts before us. We
can name the assured, locate the prop
erty, and name the company and the
agents concerned in the deal. The con
tract price of the house was $3,000.
When. the matt-, r of fire insurance
came up tbe owner asked the agent how
much insurance he would put on the
building. The agent asked how much
did the house cost, and the owner an
swered about $3.000.. "Well, then," says
the agent, dout $1,500 would be a
proper amount of insurance." "Do you
not insure the full value?" asked the
owner, to which the agent replied, "Not
if I know it."
If owners oyer estimate the value of
tbeir property they sometimes get full

If i very merchant would take a home
paper ami advertis his wares in it, and
not be spending all his money for Omaha
pap- rs and foreign job work, and in num
erous other ways keep his money at home
by ( iiiploying home labor and home tal-
c;it in every possible direction, then
would the people, whose support he dt
sires and has a right to expect, give that
support to iii n and he would (hrive,
but so long as he semis away from homo
lor ins articles w nicn are made at home,
encourages the support of foreign paper
to tlie detriment or the home product
which is trying to build up his town ami
his busints, so long will there continue
a great kick and howl about people go
ing to Omaha to buy goods which can as
well be lurch sd here. Tin re is actus-
which takes people away from their ho me
town to buy goods, and when such ex
ists it is worthy of serious consideration.
The Herald p. ints with pride to the fine
stocks of goods in Plattsmouth stores.
but looks with an cy;; of distrust upon
the many merchants who patronizj two
to four Omaha papers and neither of the,
two published at honu. If the home pa
p r is unworthy of th ir patronage they
are surdy in part to blame; if it is worthy
iml they refuse to p itroniz-' it purely on
personal grounds, then surely the cit
izens of Platrsmoii'h wTio are not in bus
iness l:-iv" a jit right to go to Omaha to
buy their goods. The IIkrald will try
to des-rve tin; patronage r.i Plattsmouth
merchants an.j-'eiiiz ns, and will aim to
induce the latter to buy goods at home
