We present our readers in this issue
of the News-Herald an nrticle on cul
tivating and growing alfalfa by the
best scientific talent in Nebraska. It
would be well to save this article and
follow the directions therein given.

Tarty lines no longer control in the

Everyone owning large or small
tracts of land near this city would do
well to sow several acres in alfalfa. It
is now quite certain that Plattsmouth
is to have an alfalfa meal mill. This
will furnish a ready market for three
or four times as much alfalfa as is now
grown in Cass county. Last year there
was only 811 acres of alfalfa grown in
this county. All vacant tracts around
this city should be sown to alfalfa this
year. It will produce from 3 to 1 crops
per year or more than 3 tons per acre.
It is worth $H.iXI per ton. This would
be a yield of $21.00 per acre. At this
rate KK) acres would yield an income of
$2100 a year. You can't do better with
any other crop.

It will be remembered that at the
time of the recent elections in Omaha
and Lincoln, he sent a telegram of con
gratulations to Mayor Dahlmnn, the
friend of John C. Maybray the confi
dence man and swindler, and his wide
open policy, but never a word of com-
tion, in the Senate late la
afternoon seventeen demoo

put rough and dressed lumber on the
free list. The 17 democratic senate rs
who vote to maintain the duty were
Bacon, Bailey, Bankhead.Chamberlain,
Daniel. Fletcher. Foster, Johnson cf
Alabama, McEnery. Martin, Money,
Overman.Simmons, Smith of Maryland,
Taliaferro, Taylor and Tillman.
Democratic votes in the House pre
vented the removal of the duty on
lumber. Democratic votes-seventeen
of them-prevented the removal of the
duty on lumber in the Senate,
The fifteen republicans who voted to
put lumber on the free list were Beve-
ridge, Rristow, Brown, Burkett, Bur
ton, Clapp, Crawford, Cummins.Curtis,
Dupont, Gamble, Johnson of North Da
kota, LaFollett, McCumber and Nel
Lumber is a necessity. It enters in
to the cost of everyone's living. Both
parties are pledged to reduce the cost
of living by reducing the tariffs on nee
essitics, and the democratic party is
specifically pledged to remove the duty
on lumber. Only ten democratic sena
tirs followed the specific pledge of ti e
Denver National Democratic platform,
and seventeen voted against it. This
clearly shows that the democratic plat
form does not bind democratic senators.

a pt.Tsor.al stud of this form of gov
err.men', expressed the following opin
ion: "What then can be said with rejrnrd

cannot say of it that it is a proved ,and i
durable tuccess. Texas has the bng- i
est experience, and Galveston has the
longest experience amorg her cities, i
But we can say that sj far the experi-1
ment is universally tuccessful. We,
may say then that it is an interesting j
experiment in city government, and '
encouraging from this poir.t of view, '
that it seems to offer universal suffrage
a good chance to select the right kind
of men to govern. These commissions
have given cities busiress-like govern
ment. I bvlieve there is r.o exception
to that rule. They have all done that, 1
and they been composed of American i
citizens of the right sort, who have 1
shown themselves to be both capable
and honest, and have, therefore, pro- j
vided efficient and honest government.
Can wc see a reason for this inteili-1
gent selection of governors made now
by eight or nine American conr.muni-'
ties, this selection of competent ar.d i

elections are all at large, and ward
elections are totally eliminated. Still, 1
we can only ty that this is an inteili- j
gent and promising experiment. Cit-i

The Commission lorm ol City
In 1JMI7, the vnrious commercial bod
ies in Boston, convinced of its ineffi
cient government, forced the Mayor to
appoint a finance committee to investi
gate the government over which he
presided. It disclosed the same cor
rupt state that is periodically 'disclose i
in most of our large cities. J Then it
went one step further and drew up a
new charter for the city, designed to
make a relapse into the old condition
impossible. This charter is . at this
writing before the Massachusetts leg
islature. If it passes, the city will be gov
erned by a mayor and a council of nine,
elected at large, so that watd politics
will be eliminated by the abolition of
the wards. The number of places to
be filled at any municipal election will
never be more than five or six for the
councilmen do not serve simultaneous
terms-and, therefore, the voters will
not be confused by a multitude of 1
names. Now they vote for ninety can- j
didiites at each election.
The provision of the now chartergive
the mayor and the council great power, ;
in the main unrestricted by petty pro-
visions; and by doing th s, make them !
unable to avoid the responsibility of J
the conduct of the city's affairs. A ti-;
V ' nanea committee is to keep watch of the
city's expenses, and a record of all the
acts of t ie council ami the mayor is to
he made public. This Boston charter
will give that city, if adopted, wh it i.i
