It might be a good idea for the
Journal to include the ground hog in
its proposed gopher bill.
If your neighbor has a good idea for
the general benefit of the city, find a
better one if you can, and go to the
Commercial club and give it to the club.
The suggestion of an interurban
railway is causing much discussion. It
may be possible to make this city the
starting point for some interurban question of woman suffrage
lines. Give the matter your best frngist woman in every community is
thought. j the agitator. She is never found at-
my wife and to my mother whatever
good things my fellow-countrymen as
cribe to me. To wife and mother, man
kind is indebted for those high moral
qualities, gentleness, truth and virtue,
which are so indispensable to good
character, good citizenship, and a noble
life. Our whole political fabric rests
upon the sanctity of the American
home, where the true wife and mother
preside. They teach the boys and girls
purity of life and thought, and point
the way to usefulness and distinction.
The world owes them more than it can
ever repay. The man who has a pure
and true love for mother and wife, re
quires no bond for his good behavior,
and can be safely trusted in every rela
tion in life."
The testimony of Lincoln and Mc
Kinley ought to forever seal the lips of
every self-respecting woman on the
It is push that makes a prosperous
city. There is not another city in the !
west, that will develop as much push '
to the square inch this year as Platts-:
mouth will. If you don't know how to '

pusn neep buii, uun i let anyuouy Know f
about it, they'll laugh at you.
Don't object to a proposition which
is for the general good of the city,
simply because you think someone else
is going to derive a little more benefit
from it than you do. If vou can derive
any benefit from it, even though your
neighbor may derive ten times as much
benefit, still it is a good thing.
Don't grow cross when a committee
from the Commercial club calls on you.
They are your friends and want to do
something for your benefit. They may
have a good idea.and one that if worked
out properly, might prove a greater
benefit to all, than had been antici
pated by any.
Plattsmouth will run a number of
trade trains during the summer. There
is no good reason why every merchant
in the city should not double his busi
ness in 1909. Let extension of trade
be the aim of every busines man. Give
the people the best bargains ever
offered, and better than can be found
anywhere else. We'll wager you will
get the trade.
MR. BRYAN ASKED TO
A committee of the allied temper
ance forces of Nebraska, has issued
an -address demanding that Mr. W.J.
Kryan declare himself on the liquor
tending to her own business,
ways trying to run other people's busi
ness for them. She assumes too much.
She never did anything and did it
well, except to make a noise.
Some years ago- the suffragists sent
a petition to the president asking that
he make a recommendation to congress
in thtHr behalf. The petition contained
the following false assumption, "this
was practically the unanimous desire
of American womanhood as a whole."
The president picked out fifty women,
whom he thought would fairly repre
sent the average American woman, and
wrote each one a letter asking for her
individual views on this question. To
his letter the president received forty
six replies with the result that forty
five of these women said they had
no desire to vote or were absolutely
indifferent as to the question, and just
one lonely woman said she might vote,
but added, "probably when the time
cume, I wouldn't bother about it."
Investigation among various classes
"That some may be rich shows
that others may become rich, and
hence is just encouragement to in
dustry and enterprise. Let not him
who is homeless pull down the
the house of another, but labor dilli
gently and build one for himself;
thus, by example, assuring that
his own shall be safe from violence
when built." Abraham Lincoln.
This saying of Lincoln is true in every
walk of life. That your neighbor is
prosperous in his business, only dem
onstrates that you may become prosper
ous in your business. Apply all your
energy building up your own business
and not waste it trying to bear down
some other fellow's business, thus, by
example, show that your own should
be safe when you have built it up. P.e
not jealous one of another.
Mr. Bryun also must choose this
day whom he will seive. He can
not any longer attract the moral
and political support of the anti
saloon church member and the
saloon interests both at the Fame
time. No flourish of moral pre
tensions will shield him any longer
in his harmonious relations with
the liquor interests. He must come
out into the open. He must either
l for or against it, and the action
of his legislature ought to and will
be charged up to his account by
that part of the Nebraska people
who have believed in him and fol
lowed him in part for his high
The democratic party is now in
power in the legislature and execu
tive departments of the state gov
ernment. Mr. Brynn is the leader.
He is the acknowledged leader of
both the national and state demo
cracy. This legislature will do what
he wants done on the liquor ques
tion just as it is doing what he
wants done on the bank guarantee I
question. He is in control. If he I
denies that he was a party to any i
iwrgain to shield the liquor inter
est, let him prove it now. If Bryan
should come out into ihc open on
the liquor question and demand that
this legislature do for this Btatc
what the Tennessee democracy did
for Tennessee a few days ago, he
would lose caste in the bartenders'
association, the Eagles, which he
joined recently, but he would gain
among the better element of the
people who are in the majority.
If the pre-election bargain was
made by Mr. Shallenberger alone,
nd if Mr. Bryan had no part in it
except as an innocent benticiary, he
can and he ought to repudiate that
bargain now, and the people of Ne
braska will not believe him innocent
until they see him do this.
The committee is composed of the
following: T. Q. Wimbcrly, chair
man; S. K. Warrick, treasurer;
Frances B. Hoald, secretary; Sam
uel Zanc Batten, Thomas Darnell,
A. G. Wolfcnbarger, C. C. Flans
berg and E. E. Thomas.
It is rafe to suy that Mr. Bryan will
not make any rt p'y to this demand. In
every campaign, wh .mi he has been a
candidate, ho has had the loyal support
of the liquor inte.-is.s, houses of pros
titution, gamblers, and at the same
time many preachers and the anti
saloon organizations. How tan Mr.
Bryan declare himself.
It will be remembered that the
Plattsmouth Journal, under a former
management, namely, C. W. Sherman,
did more to injure this city and its
business interests and those who were
employed in the B. & M. shops, who
had purchased homes here, than all the
other causes of injury combined. It is
a well known fact that the Journal,
under the management of C. W. Sher
man, did more to cause the removal of
the B. & M. shops from this city to
Havelock than any other one thing, and
almost as much as all other things com
bined. Under the present management'

WHO OWNS THE WEALTH OF
THE U. S.
The capital invested in the farm prop
erty of this country is $20,514,000,000
and this is distributed among less than
5,000,000 farmers, giving the average
capital for each about $4,100.
The manufacturing industries have a
cupital of about $9,831,000,000, distrib
uted among 703, 000 owners, and making
a capital for each of about $13,0(10.

THE JOURNAL'S PLAYFULNESS.
When it tore loose last night it
aroused all the boarders and tran
sients at the Hotel Riley who verily
believed that the end of the world
was at hand. The rustling of the
roof and the noise of the wind
coupled with the sweep of the storm
at the unearthly hour of the morn
ing, all, served to make the guests
uneasy to say the least. They fled
pell-mell into the halls and corridors
and for several hours the greatest
difficulty was experienced by Land
lord Dunbar and his force in han
dling the panic-stricken guests.
From the Journal's account of
Thursday night's storm.
It is harrowing to contemplate what
might have happened had the doughty
landlord and his force eventually lost
control of the fear-maddened guests.
They had doubtless wandered around
in the intense cold till daylight, and
nmy perhaps even perished. A move
should be made to obtain a Carnegie
hero medal for Mine Host Dunbar.
