THE HOME OF SATISFACTION.
"Where Quality Counts."
Denies the Allegations Made by
the Journal and Defies
During the campaign just closing
charges have been made against me as
Sheriff of Cass county. I have re
frained from making any public state
ment, believing that the friends who
had confidence enough in me to vote
for me two years ago, still had confi
dence enough in me to believe that I
am innocent of the charges made
In explanation of the charge that I, grow."
have not made my reports regularly, I
would say that there had been times
when I have been busy out of the city
on official business and have missed
making a report in a very few in
Regarding the charge that I have
wrongfully withheld the fees of my
office, I will say that that charge is un
true. When I shall make my report
for the current year as the " law pro
vides at the end of my term, I expect
to turn over to the Treasurer of Cass
county all fees collected by me which
belong to the county.
If the Board of County Commission
ers, or any responsible tax payer is
not satisfied with that report or the
amount of fees accounted for, I shall
ask the Board to employ at once, at
my expense, an expert accountant who
- shall examine all books and records
pertaining to my office, and if upon his
report it is found that there is any
thing due the county by me, I stand
ready and able to turn that amount
into the treasury of the county.
The assertion that has been made
that Mr. Manspeaker, my deputy, has
not given a bond, I will simply say
that following the advice of the county
attorney at tht time of Mr. Man
speaker's appointment, he gave a bond
and the same is still in force.
Thanking my friends for their con
fidence in me during the past, and as
suring them that confidence has
been misplaced, I remain as ever,
Carroll D. Quinton.
A FLAT FAILURE.
After three weeks of hard and labor
ous work on the part of James II.
Donnelly, an expert accountant hired
by the democratic county committee
to find things, and after loud and labor
ous wind jamming on the part of the
Journal the expert accountant has at
last found that Sheriff Quintin hasjust
exaotly $540.58 which he has not turn
ed over to the county. Inasmuch as
the law does not require him to turn
over anything until the end of the
year it looks as if the job had not work
ed out. "Great oaks from little acorns

The resolutions passed by the thirty
sixth annual convention supplimenting
its declaration of principles are com

Especial stress is laid upon the neces

peace and of educatin and legislation

One of the planks of the platform
reads: "We urge the Woman's Chris

where the liquor traffic is legalized, to
inaugurate a vigorous campaign for
state prohibition and by wise agitation

point of demanding an amendment to
the federal constitution, forever prohi

A large number of Plattsmouth peo

About 200 delegates were elected

state commerce in intoxicants so far
as it relattn to the shipmeat of liquor
into a dry state. Another recomenda
tion asks that the government refuse
to issue federal liquor licenses in dry
states. Recommendations are made
for corporation in the work of child

age limit may be fixed all over the
country, and for the establishment of a
children's bureau which will collect
reliable and valuable statistics with

A Golden Anniversary.
Last Sunday, October the 21th, John
M. Lois and his good wife Katherina
Leis celebrated their golden wedding
anniversary at their hospitable home
in llurlock, Nebraska. They were
ably assisted in this celebration by a
large gathering of neighbors and
friends, and some of their childen from
a distance also were present. They
were remembered with a handsomely en
graved souvenir spoon and pieces of
gold coin in honor of the event. A
most bountiful repast waa served to
the assembled company and they will

Mr. Leis was born in Prussia. Ger
many on the second day of June 1889,
while Mrs. Leis was born in Baden,
Germany in 1839. Mr. Leis emmigrat
ed to America in 1851 and first settled
in New York city; from there he
gradually worked his way westward
stopping at intervals in Pennsylvania,
Ohio and Indiana until he reached Il
linois where he remained for some
time, and here it was that he first met
and finally married Mrs. William Stein,
who was then a young widow with an
infant daughter; this daughter later
on became Mrs. Steve Mams and she
with her family are at present resi
dents of Union, Oregon. Mr. Leis
learned the trade and for many years
followed the occupation of stone mason
and many are the stories be can tell of
having worked for days, weeks and
even months at a time without receiv
ing a single penny for pay; the usual
mode of settlement was a side of
bacoii; a sack of flour or perhaps a few
buBhel of potatoes: but they lived hap
pily and content through those years
and raised u family of six boys, beside
the daughter. These boys are all al
ive today, although they are scattered
over the country somewhat: John S.
Leis being engaged as a miller and
farmer near Jackson, Nebraska with
his brother Steve. Charles B. Leis
lives on his own fine farm near Demet
South Dakota; Cnlvin J. Leis is in the
builder and constructing business, with
his residence in Murlork! whiln. iht

Mr. Leis and family came further
west to Cass county on the 22nd day of
rebniMy, 1876, the centennial voar
and settled on a fine quarter section of
land four miles south-west of the pres
ent town of Murdock; their nearest
railroad station at that time was South
Bend; prices in those days were not
what they are now, for many a time
did they haul a load of corn to market
and return with a pair of boots in ex
change; those were surely trying times;
however, they were of the good old
pioneer stock and would not turn back;
they had faith in the country and even
the eraas-hoppers failed to drive them
bat k east. The result of their earlv
labors is that they live in quietude and
peace and have for years past had
but little to do except to see the sun
rise and set; to eat their three squre
meals a day and rest in contentment
at night; knowing that i the morrow
need cause them no worrv. Thev nre
well beloved by their neighbors who
all join in wishing them many vears of
happiness in their midst.

The Ninth Annual Interdenomina
tional Sunday School Convention, for
Cass county, held at Elmwood Tuesday
and Wednesday was a decided success
any way you may take it. There were
a hundred or more delegates present
eighteen of the number from Platts
mouth. From start to finish the
interest was enthusiastically in
tense and matters of great importance
were discussed. In fact, thev were not
only discussed, but ringing resolutions
were adopted which will have a decided
and most material bearing upon things
political in the very near future. The
resolutions took the form of a pledge,
the singers promising to cast their
votes in future for candidates for public
office who came out scruarely and un
equivocally for temperanae. The or
ganization claims to rally a solid nhal-
anx of 1,000 voters in Cass county who
will cast their votes for a "dry" can
didate as against a "wet." It is the
intention of the organization to go be
fore the conventions of the old parties
and announce that their strength will
go solidly to the candidates, only, who
will go on record as favoring temper
ance. That means the water wagon
for a number of the boys.
The Plattsmouth delegates sneak in
highest praise of their entertainment
at Elmwood. They were not wined.
but they were dined early and often,
most royally. The meeting were held
in the Methodist church, which had
been beautifully decorated for the oc
casion. A list of the officers elected
will be published later.
