WANT OUR ORATOR.
Manv Neighboring Cities Have
Tried to Secure John C.Wat
son For the Fourth.
Nebraska City's orator, John C;
Watson, has had a gr-at number of
invitations to deliver addreeses on
the Fourth of Jul'. It would seem
that he has' become very justly
famous as a speaker on subjects of
popular inter1!." It is said that he
was invited to speak at the Inde
pendence celebrations at Stella,
Plattsiuouth, Auburn, Syracuse
and several other places about the
state. However, he' has been com
ptlled to dec line all of these cordial
invitations. He has informed the
Press in answer to a question of
whether he would speak ni Platts
iuouth, as he had been advertised,
that he had been compelled to de
cline that invitation also by reason
of pressing legal business. There
seems t be a misunderstanding at
Plattsiuouth upon this question, as
the city is talking quite loudly of
having the honored orator in their
city on the day of the celebration.
