Keep this fti mind, the best is none
too good for Plattsmouth. Let us try a
nonpartisan city government. Is your
citizenship above your partisanship.
We believe in a non-partisan judi
ciary, a non-partisun school board, and
a non-partisan city government. Do
you? If so, then vote for the candi
dates on the citizens' ticket.
The city council is the legislative de
partment of the city government. It
levies the taxes, makes the appropria
tions, passes the laws governoring the
city, allows claims, mukes contracts, in
fact, is the most important department
of the city government.
Messrs. George E. Dovey and J. P.
Falter are certainly capable and effi
cient business men who have achieved
success in their own business and will
be able to give the city the benefit of
their past business experiences. They
should receive the unanimous support
of the voters in the First ward.
Fred Ramge, of the firm of Kunsman
& Ramge, is too well-known to need
introduction. Everybody knows Fred
and all who know him admire him.
There is little doubt but that he will be
' elected councilman from the Second
I L. G. Larson, the carpenter and con
! tractor, has served in the council be
fore and will no doubt be elected by a
fine majority tit the coming election.
C. M. Parker, of the Fourth ward, is
a capable and bright young man and is
employed in the B. & M. shops. He is
a man of good judgment, good business
ability and will make the Fourth ward
a splendid councilman.
The Fifth ward will doubtless be rep
resented in the next council by August
Gorder. Mr. Gorder is recognized as a
man of extraordinary business judg
men (and has made great success of his
own business. He is always careful
and is absolutely honest and no better
man could be found anywhere to serve
the city than August Gorder. He is
entitled to the support of all good citi
zens who have the best interests of the
city at heart.
No finer list of candidates for council
could be found and we predict that they
will be elected, as they certainly
should be. 1
The Tlattsmouth Journal has just
gone through two huge fits of hysterics
because many of the best citizens of
this city have seen fit to nominate a
non-partisan ticket, and the republi
cans endorsed it. We would suggest
that the Journal take a few doses of
the oil of decency and cut out its
spasms of silliness.
Look the citizens and republican
tickets over and note the personnel.
They look to us like a good list of men
to elect to office in this city.
There is a difference between being
one of the incorporators and being a
stockholder. The incorporators are the
ones -who issue the stock and put it on
the market. Every business man who
can afford it and who is willing to do
so, should join the incorporation and
agree to take a certain amount of stock.
Let everybody get busy and build the
Rv actual count at the republican
convention held Friday night the reso
lution endorsing and nominating the
same candidates who were nominated
by the Citizens Convention was carried
by a vote of 28 to 1. That seems to
be a fair representation of the disaf
fection. The Journal is just passing through
the greatest historical fit of alarm for
the welfare of the republican party.
Had the citizens' ticket been nomi
nated, and the republicans had placed a
clean, straight ticket of good men in
the field, it would be having its usual
hysterical fits of heaping abuse on such
HMAN should interest himself in public affairs.
There is no happiness in mere dollars. After they
are acquired, one can use but a moderate amount. It
is given a man to eat so much, to wear so much, and to
have so much shelter, and more he cannot use. When
money has supplied these, its mission, so far as the in
dividual is concerned, is fulfilled, and man must look
further and higher. It is only in wide public affairs,
where money is a moving force toward the general wel
fare, that the possessor of it can possibly find pleasure,
and that only in constantly doing more. The greatest
good a man can do is to cultivate himself, develop his
powers, in order that he may be of greater service to
humanity. ! Marshall Field.
Dr. C. A. Marshall and H. N.
Dovey have for some time served as
members of the school board. Their
services have been valuable and at one
former election they were nominated
by both the republican and 'democrat
ic parties and were unanimously elect
ed. They have been nominated by both

This pause before the city cam
paign begins is or ought to be the
! time for all good citizens to make
good resolutions. Such as:
I WILL NOT FORGET
That the welfare of my home
city is above party and the group
of politicians who reap all, or X
nearly all, the profits of victory.
I WILL NOT FORGET $
That my first duty is good citi- 4

Wiien you pull down the town in

are pulling down yourself, and when
you build up your own town you build
up yourself and your neighbors. Try
and banish from your mind the mis
taken idea that good things are away
off in some other locality. If, you in
vestigate you will find knockefs there,
too. Give your home town;all the
praise it can legitimately bear.w It will
certainly do you no harm, and fr ill cost
you nothing, and above all, patronize
home institutions. Louisville Courier.

The matter of organizing and incor
porating the Plattsmouth and Cess
County Interurban Railway should be
taken up by all the business men in
thir. city and a home company should
be organized ar.d incorporated with all
fie business men who desire to become
incorporators. This will insure the
'X j stability of the corporation and, alo ii
; ; sure the building of an interurban rail
X j way. The editor of this piiper talked
4 with a financier from Chicago, a few
V : days uro, and he said that if the I usi-
. nes men were back of the pripositu n
they ncel not worry about financing it:
that he could procure the funds ftr
: buildii aud equipping su''h an entei
! prise. He said that he ha:l built trd
financed some interurban railways
where the opportunities and prospects
for business were not nearly to good as
the local proposition here. The busi
ness men should become the incorporo
tors and organize such company and in
corporate it, so that they shall become
the owners of the franchise and issue
the stock, and sell the bonds, if such
were necessary to raise the funds for
this enterprise. There is no reason
why all the business men in this city
should not become members of the in
corporation. We urge the speedy or
g mization of such a company.
