JULY I, 1909.
1 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 simor, while being
largely of a "thank yoi" nature, the
remuneration being insufficient far the
support of a familyt have eminently
fitted me for the duties of the oflice 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.

Fair words won't feed a cat.
Truth makes the devil blush.

A GOOD occupation is better than a
golden girdle.
Better to suffer for truth, than
prosper by falsehood.
They that make the best use of
time have none to spare.
Vice will stain the noblest race and
ruin the greatest nation.
Virtue is more persecuted by the
wicked than encouraged by the good.

At The big meeting of railroad em
ployees in Lincoln Tuesday the temper
ance movement was given a boost
The Lincoln Journal says:
"Distillers, brewers and personal lib
erty advocates found no comfort, if
Buch were present, from the addresses
made. Mr. Willard complimented the
brotherhood on its stand for temper
ance. Mr. Stone said that the brother
hood of locomotive engineers hud done
more for temperance than the churches
and that their efforts in the line of
total abstinence antedated those of the
railroads by ten years. They had
paved the way for the elforts put
forth by the railroads at a later date.
President Futch of the insurance de-
partmont declared for abstinence and
rrcsident Morissev of the employers'
and investors' association put his ap
proval on temperance, and said that
one might think , from the remarks
made on the subject, following Mayor
Love's address of welcome, that the
meeting had been turned into a ratifi
cation meeting over Lincoln going dry."
If TUB men who control great corpor
atiows would continue to enjoy the ad
vantages and privileges which incor
poration as a method of doing business
affords them, they must learn to behave.
They must adopt adopt the same code
of ethics that rules between individuals
in business. They must make their
corporations deal not only legally but
honorably with their customers, their
competitors, and the government. They
must not use the impersonal corpora
tion as a cover for practices which they
would not think of . carrying on as in
dividuals. It should be as much a
matter of disgrace to the managers of
a great corporation when the corpora
tion swindles a competitor, or steals
from the government, or oppresses its
customers, as if they had done the act
with their own hands. The sugar trust
has come recently under new official
control; its new managers can hardly be
held responsible for the shady transac
tions under their predecessors. But
they are to be held responsible for the
regeneration of their company and for
its continuance under a new" spirit of
decency and fair dealing.
Councilman D. O. Dwyer of the
First Ward has made a valiant fight to
keep down the extravagant expendi
ture of the City's money in open vio
lation of the statute. Over Council
man Dwyer's protest on June 14, the
Council voted to allow $157.71 of claims
against the road fund which is now
overdrawn, and in violation of Section
12, Article 3, Chapter 13, Compiled
Statues of Nebraska, 1907, which pro
videsr "Such bonds shall be in the sum
of one thousand dollars, and shall be
onditioned for the faithful discharge
of the duties of the councilman giving
tho same, and shall be further condi
tioned that if the said conncilman
shall vote for any expenditure or appro
priation of money or creation of any
iability in excess of the amount allow
ed by law, such councilman, and the
sureties signing said bond, shall be
liable thereon."
In the face of the foregoing statute,
will the taxpayers of th:s c'ty sit idly
by and allow the road fund to be rav-
form of government in dead earnest.

This is not political nor personal, but
some "plain fasts for thV' taxpayers of

their graft and exposures of graft
Plattsmouth has had her graft, and
here is the begining of the exposure.
During the past five years the treas
urer's books show that more than $42,-
000 have been spent on the streets of
this city, and this does not include the
lowering of Main street. Mr. Tax
payer think of it $42,000 in five years.
There are about 30 miles of streets
open in this city. We ask that every
taxpayer in this city take a walk about
the city and observe the condition of
the streets. Forty-two thousand dol
lars expended on 30 miles of streets
means $1400 per mile. And $1400 per
mile at $3.50 per day for a team means
400 days work with a team on every
mile of street in this city during the
past five years. Has it been done?
Has it been done, Mr. Taxpayer? Has
it been done, Mr. Councilman?
