LOCAL AND PERSONAL
The citizens party held their conven
tion in Coates' Hall Thursday night
pursuant to the announcement made
through the columns of this paper.
About 150 of the best citizens of I'latts
mouth representing the city's best in
terest s.irrespective of party assembled.
It was a business like convention and
was called to order by J. P. Falter.
The object of the meeting was then
stated, the convention promptly and
with enthusiasm elected Joseph M.
Robert?, chairman of the convention
and E. II. Wescott secretary. The call
of the convention was announced, and
the convention immediately proceed
ed to place in nomination candidates
for city offices and school board. Dr. E.
D. Cummins was unanimously chosen
for mayor. R. W. Clements was unan
imously chosen for city treasurer, E.J.
Richey was unanimously chosen for
city clerk and Judge Michael Archer
was unanimously chosen for police,
judge. When it came to the matter of I
selecting candidates for members of j
the school board, it was considered!
right and proper, because of their faith-;
f ul and non-partisan work on the school j
board, that the retiring members of
the board should by unanimous
consent be nominated for re-electiou,
and in accordance therewith Dr. C. A.
Marshall and Mr. II. N. Dovey were
unanimously nominated for the school
At the the conclusion of this portioi
of the convention, the representative;
from the several wards of the city met
in separate convention and nominated
candidates for the council as follows:

To See Canada Land. Tarties
Going With Us Last Trip
Bought Land There.
Either Mr. Shcdd of Ashland or my
self will accompany parties in Cass and
j adjoining counties to Alberta, Canada
on Tuesday, April 6 and Tuesday, April
20. The young men who went with us
this month purchased land and con
cluded to stay right there and go to
work. They purchased a 40-horse
power gasoline engine and h six-bottom
breaker und are now ready for busi
ness. They have already contracted
for over 1,000 acres to break at $;i per
acre. They were so favorably im
pressed with both climate and soil that
they did not take three or four months
to investigate conditions in the Alberta
province, as they had contemplated do
ing. Good, productive land at $15 an
acre, on easy payments is becoming a
scarce article. These lands sell at $15
an acre for non-irrigated and $25 an
acre for irrigated area3, on ten-year,
crop-payment plan if desired.

After a careful and complete examination of the Platts
mouth, Nebraska, twice-a-week NeWs-IIerald, I wish to
Ko on record as having found it a very creditable newspaper.
It contains an abundance of good, live reading matter,
maintains an able department" of editorials, gives a lot of
local news, attains a high standard in the composition of its
advertisements, secures a clean legible print, and, in spite
of the two attractive ads that ought not to be here, achieves a
neat and artistic effect in the makeup of its first page.
What more could its readers or even its critics-ask?

had axes to grind themselves. It is
now quite generally believtd that the
election of the citizens ticket will mean
a most business like administration.
Tho citizens ticket was purely non
partisan there being 6 democrats and 6
republicans nominated on that ticket,
ami the great majority of republicans
feel that the independent democrats
are meeting them half-way in the selec
tion of this ticket, in fact the citizens
ticket should be made unanimous.
