Another World-Herald Fake Goes
The following from the Lincoln Jour
nal explodes effectually the statement of

publicans goulde hoodwinked, through
league officered and managed by dem
ocrats, into voting against L. D. Rich
ards for goyernor. Here is what they
"The German republican members of
the personal rights league of the Fifth
ward held an enthusiastic meeting last
night for the purpose of endorsing the
republican state and county tickets and
to formulate plans to oppose the adop
tion of the prohibitory amendment.
There were eighty seven representative
German citizens present. Henry Rippe
was chosen chairman of the me-jting and
Carl Schmitt secretary. In view of the
fact that the state executive committe of
the personal rights league had attempted
to drag the league into partisan politics
by endorsing James E. Boyd for gover
nor, thus endeavoring to make the pro
hibitory amendment question a political
party issue, the German republicans of
the Fifth ward were desirous of repudiat
ing the action of the executive com
mittee. They are opposed to prohibi
tion, but they are loyal republicans and
desire to go on record as such. The fol
lowing resolution was adopted:
Resolved. That we, the German
republicans of the Fifth ward of the
city of Lincoln, hereby repudiate the
action of the state executive committee
cf the personal lights league in endorsing
Jafei E. Boyd for governor, and we
will not be bound by such action.
A vote was then taken on the repub
lican and democratic candidates lor
governor, which res-ulted in seventy-eight
for Richards and nine for Royd. This
action effectually explodes tlu (rroneov.s
statement that the German republicans
would support Boyd. The republican i
county ticket was then indor&tu. A j
resolution was then adopted pledging !

Yesterday about twelve o'clock at the
residence of L. D Bennett, Mrs. Lavina
Duke, better known as Grandma Duke,
passed peacefully to the great beyond.
Her life had been a busy one, yet she
always found time to do good. She was
one of the first members of the Methodist
church in this city. Mrs. Duke, whose
maiden name was Snedeker, was born in
Bethany, West Virginia, on July 2, 1S02,
and on the 14th day of March, 1S26, she
was married to Shepherd Duke, who
died in this city in 1872. She and her
husband remoyed to Ironton, Ohio, where
they remained until 1856, when they
came West, settling in Plattsmouth in
1857. Mr. Duke was the proprietor of
the Platte Valley House up to 1SG1,
when he was elected county treasurer,
holding the office for four consecutive
terms. The children of Mr. and Mrs.
Duke, who are today called upon to
mourn the loss of a mother, are John S.
Duke, Margaret L. Bennett, Elbert T.
Duke and Mrs. R.E. Cooper. Mrs. Duke
had made her home with her son-in-law,
Capt. Bennett, since the eath of her
husband. The funeral vill occur to

The young Mr. Bryan has been gasping
for breath since Congressman CDnnell
eliew the Mills bill on him. The demo
cratic bill is so inferior to the republican
law in every feature that even Mr. Bryan
finds it hard to muster up enough gall to
defend it. State Journal.
When Bryan stampeded the crowel at
the opera house the other evening, having
talked Col. Srnythe out of his time, our
Col. Connor rushed to the front of the
stage and got a part of the audience
seated long enough to hear a ten minutes
speech from that gentleman. Joe is not
good enough for the democrats to elect
to office, but he is a mighty handy man
