Plattsmouth No. 85 Nebraska No. 85
I hereby announce myself as a candi
date for the republican nomination for
Register of Deeds of Cass county, sub
ject to the pleasure of the voters at
the coming ! primaries. In asking for
this nomination I desire to call atten
tion to the fact that my services in the
office of county Burveor, while being
largely of a "thank yoi" nature, the
remuneration being insufficient for the
support of a family, have eminently
fitted me for the duties of the office to
which I aspire, and in case I should re
ceive the nomination I shall use my
best endeavors to be elected, and will
give to the office my best attention.

MR. POLLARD STANDS PAT.
The Plattsmouth News-Herald con
tains an editorial on the "Need of a
Merchant Marine." The News-Herald
is owned by Former Congressman
Pollard who stood steadfastly for aid
ing and increasing our merchant ves
sels while in Washington. Mr. Pol
lard was somewhat at variance with
many western members on this subject.
They naturally felt that h'ing so far
removed from ocean traffic their con
stituents would not agree to a ship
subsidy. Mr. Pollard, a producer
himself, took the broad view that
Nebraska's products are as greatly
interested in reaching foreign markets,
a) are the products of any state for
grain and peat constitute, except
cotton, the greatest volume of our
exports. It is probable that his posi
tion had some adverse effect upon his
campaign last fall, when he was un
expectedly defeated by an unknown.
However, all the "logic of the argu
ment was in his favor. It is appar
ent that he has not changed his
mind and is waiting for the people to
catch upwith him. -Fremont Tribune.
There are about 1000 miles of public
roads in Cass County, and there are
about 4 acres of waste land to the mile,
making about 4000 acres of waste land
in the public highways. If this waste
land could be put under cultivation and
could be made to yield $10 per acre it
is plainly to be seen that thore are $40,
000 of waste on the public roads of Cass
county each year. A "drive through
the country at this season of the year
will convince the casual observer of
the immense waste in the public roads
annually. It would pay the farmers to
buy a small flock of sheep and hire a
shepherd boy to heard them in the pub
lic roads to pasture in the waste land
therein. There should be some method
of practicing greater economy in our
public roads. Six sections of land is too
much to be in absolute waste where
land is worth $100 per acre. The farm
ers should begin to investigate this
It would be impossible to pass au
thoritive judgment on the capacity and
effectiveness of a new Presidential ad
ministration with an extra session of
Congress as a basis. This is especially
true in the case of a tariff session and

the position ne occupied in the cam- 27th, j909, appeared an article tellini?
paign. He has assured some of the so
licitous that a good bill will be enacted.
But more than all he has taken; a sig
nificant hand in certain attending fea
tures, not directly a part of the tariff
legislation, but intimately related to it.
It is significant of the President's
reserve power that with a single mes
sage on the subject he has practically
insured the enactment of a corporation
tax law and the submission of an amend
ment authorizing Congress to enact an
income tax law. Both of these meas
ures are as unpopular with the leading
reactionaries as low tariffs are, but
their organization has been unable to
withstand the force of he Presjdent's
recommendations and the support they
have enlisted. Both propositions are
of the great improvements which the
Nebraska Telephone Co. were contem
plating. The Journal says: "This an
nouncement of the of Nebraska Tele
phone Co. ought to be hailed with de
light by all as it is another indication
that the coming year will be one of the
liveliest and best the city has ever
known." Again the Journal says;
"That the public would be willing to
stand a reasonable increase if the ser
vice is given, is quite likely, and that
there will be any pronounced dissent is
unlikely." But whenever a paper is
ready to sell out its columns to any
corporation for a few" dollars, as has
recently been done by the Journal in
its denunciation of the Nebraska Tele-
Co. since this company began its im-

now-on the belief that it would be sus

objection, for some measures for large
revenue production is necessary, and it
should not be assumed that the court
will reverse itself. On the other hand,
action on a constitutional amendment
could be secured with little more delay
than would attend another appeal of an
income tax law enacted without such
These recommendations by the Presi
dent were unquestionably in order. And
his action suggests that his influence on
the Tariff bill, after each House of
Congress has made its draft, may be
sufficient to secure a much better bill
than has been promised. What the
people want, is results. They are per
fectly willing to accord to every man
the right to use his own methods. As
for Mr. Taft's methods, he has shown
in these two proposals and in the sugar
trust case that he does not lack either
promptness or aggressiveness when the
need of executive action is manifest.

WHAT ADVERTISING WILL DO
Advertising not only rules the pros
perity of the newspaper publisher but
it rules the prosperity of every retail
er, every manufacturer, and every dis
tributer. Business is no longer a hand
to hand conflict in which personality
wins the fight any more than the. bat
tlefield is the arena of personal heroism.
Physical bravery at a distance of one
mile is an obsolete emotion. It is the
man with the longest shooting gun, the
man with the heaviest artillery, the
man with the best aim that counts. It
is mathematics against brute strength,
science contrasted with hysteria. Ad
vertising makes neighbors of communi
ties. The location of a factory means
nothing it is the location of its publi
city that counts. Advertising has built
mills along the banks of unheard of
streams and factories in the midst of
second-rate communities located out of
the path of traffic and the roar of the
crowds are just as omnipotent as though
they were reared upon expensive real
estate in cities of the first class.
If there be a merchant within the
range of my voice who has not adapted
his business to the changed business
conditions, let him beware. You must
advertise not only for new business,
but to hold what you have. If you
don't advertise, your competitor who
does, will surely take your business.
H. M. Parker, Business Manager' Chi
cago Tribune. ,
The Nebraska Telephone Co. has
practically completed its new plant in
this city at an expenditure of something
like $25,000, and more expenditures are
yet to be made. This company now
has its offices located in the Falter &
Thierolf building. We have watched
the progress of the vast improvements
of this company with considerable in
terests, for we are firm believers that
nothing is too good for Plattsmouth.
