AN OUTSIDE DEMOCRATIC VIEW
Nebraska furnishes the best
means of measuring the force and
vitality of this movement because
there it has"l:en wholly f'ee from
complications with either of the
two old parties. At The outset it
there took the shape of an inde
pendent state organisation for
political reform. And in Nebraska
today the numbers and aggresss
iveness of these independents are
Causing; the i ppublican politician
serious concern. They are in dead
earnest and will doubtless lie heard
from in great numbers at the polls
A Okxtle.MA.N from Illinois who
was here last week tell us a good
story on the downtrodden, bankrupt
farmers of Iowa, whose sad condi
lion is so pathetically deplored by
Governor Boies. Thin gentleman
wiis at Kairfielr Jefferson county
on business late in the fall of last
year, and while there learned that
this county had voted fi.'i.COO in
bonds for a new court house, and
on the d;iy of sale, which opened at
9 a. in., $70,0 ,i of those bonds were
taken and paid for before not in
the farmers of that county. I'oor
fellow, how sad they must feel, and
how fully they must realise their
desperate condition which i o
much like that of their br, them in
Nebraska of whom Jay liurrows
says: ' No man could cniiliiie him
self to fanning in Nebraska and
keep out of the poor house."

At Dwright, III., and at Hlair, Neb.,

Among other reasons why it is
better to invest in South Park than

Property is more saleable if you

The .'Ih wai'il composed largely ol
South Park, less than three years
ago could hardly muster up a Vote
at the last general election the vote
was Li".! and all were not polled. It
has been less than two years since
the city invited us into the corpor

with few exceptions, by the parties
now living in them.

Plattsmouth's steady growth for
five years part almost doubling its
population; the advance stand it
has taken regarding public im
provements, the certainty of a new

of the ifreat Missouri Pacific rail
way into this city, giving us anoth
er great trunk line and competing
market; the constant increasing
pay roll of the C. li. k J. shops, to
