py County Senator Sends In
Ills Resignation.
An Interesting Letter full of In
formation for the Governor.
LINCOLN, Dee. 1. The governor
lias received from Senator Patrick his
resignation as a member of the board
of trustees appointed to control the
state school for the blind at Nebraska
City, and with it a letter which makes
interesting reading. It is as follows:
"Dear Governor: In my judgment
the present system of administering
most of our state institutions is vicious
in principle and abhorently wrong in
fact, and that I may feel free to criti
cise it as I sec fit, I respectfully request
that you accept my resignation as
member of the board of trustees for
the schools for the deaf and blind.
'Io mv mind it is a sud reflection
ui)on the intelligence of the people of
this great state that they have thus
long tolerated a condition which im
poses upon the unfortunate and help
less wards of the state the supervision
of those selected because of their par
tisan politics or political inflocnce,
rather than on account of a peculiar
fitness to discharge the duties, and
capably meet the responsibilities of
their respective trusts. Under pres
ent conditions these conditions are
but a part of the politicnrflmchine of
the party in power, and it is but
natural that in the selection of the
numerous appointees preference be
given to those whose past political
service is thought worthy of reward
at the expence of the state, whose
political influence is desired in future
political contests.
With partisan politics eliminated
fron the control of these public in
stitutions their management would
fall under the supervision of men and
women of special qualifications and
fitness for the positions., as there could
be no great incentive for their selec
tion. The permancy of their position
would depend upou their efficiency
and the standard of service rendered
Siui a chance in conditions would
doubtedly result in better care and
is well in greater saving
and profit to the taxpayers of the
I sincerely hope that you will stren
uously urge upon the next legislature
the necessity of devorcing all state in
stitutions entirely from partisan pol
itics, truly yours, W. R. Patrick.

"The Haveloek football team wishes

Executive cf State Gets Fancy
Price for Stock.
Did not want Trouble of Milking
These Cold Mornings.
LINCOLN, Dee. 1. Though the
law provides that an officer of the state
shall not sell property to the state,
the governor disposed of four cows to
the agricultural college recently. They
bore names that were worth the price
paid, though the cows may not have
been up to date. Two of them
"Rlushing Reauty" and "Lady Lon
don," brought the neat sum of $;M.r)
and SI120 respectively, while the oth
ers which had only common scrub
names brought $21." and $140.
It is understood, however, that the
critters were from the best of the gov
ernor's very fine herd nnd will be a
valuable addition to the agricultural
farm school.
Bull Frogglng
The bull frogging tactics of the
Journal in trying to make the public
believe that this paper lias cast reflec
tions upon the lighting company is
not borne out by the evidence nor
the statement appearing in the News
to which the Journal takes exception.
The News did not say that the light
ing company could not furnish power
to the Smtih factory. The News
did not cast reflections upon Mr. Cla
baugh and his assistants, neither at
this time or' any other time as a pe
rusal of the columns of the News will
show. We cid state, however, that
there had been trouble at the plant,
and that the power people had worked
hard all day Sunday to get the matter
in shape. There was nothing what
ever mentioned in the News deroga
tory to the lighting company or any
of its employes as' the News will
show. Rut we did say that the com
pany had succeeded in installing the
power in a fairly satisfactory manner
and the machines were it work. Our
information came from a reliable
source and from a man who is in close
touch with conditions. It will take
something more reliable than a state
ment of our contemporary to convince
the public that the Daily News is
a knocker. We are using power from
the lighting company for the running
of our machines and the company
itself knows whether we have been
unreasonable or not. We leave it
to them.
Claims $3,300 Wages.
A claim was filed today in the office

earned during the past twelve years
and eight months. He further claims
that the deceased, Johnson, had prom
ised to devise to him SO acres of land in
Clay county.

Former Nebraska Foot Ball Star
Would Coach Nebraska.
LINCOLN, Dec. 1. An applica
tion from Johnnie Render for the posi
tion of coach of the Nebraska Com
huskcrs next season has set the ad
herents of foot ball to talking and the
sentiment seems to be considerably
divided over the matter.
Render has a great many friends in
Lincoln, nnd for that matter all over
the state, and the success which he
has had with the Haskell Indians this
season has made them feel that the
authorities at the big school should give
Render a chance to see what he can do.
Many think that King Coal has
lost his grip on the squad, and after a
two years' trial in which the team has
not come up to expectations, they per
sist in saying that he should be let go
and someone else given a chance.
"Places Them In Bad Light."
Does it pay to advertise That is
the question that is bothering the hard
ware firm of Asemissen & Klinger.
When the question has reference to
an advertisement in the Daily News
or Weekly News-Herald, it is at once
answered in the affirmative. Rut when
it refers to the columns of our es
teemed and veracious contemporary,
then there is some doubt entertained.
In last night's Journal the advertise
ment of Asemissen & Klinger appear
ed in a badly misleading condition,
and "really it places the firm in a bad
light." The Journal states that the
hardware firm is selling saws for P5
cents, former price S.r cents. That the
firm wants $1.00 for an Ever Ready
flash light that formerly sold for $1.20.
It is too bad that the firm's business
should bo placed before the public in
such a light, and the injury sustained
cannot be estimated.
Asemissen & Klinger are known to
be square business men and are con
ducting an honest closing out Bale.
They are making a reduction on every
article advertised, in fact a reduction
is made on everything in their store
and they are not charging more for
saws or Ever Ready flash lights than
before the sale commenced. This
correction is made so that the public
will not entertain an erroneous im
pression of the business methods of
the firm.

Some Plattsmouth People Have
Learned How to Get
Rid of Both.
Rackache and kidney ache are twin
You can't separate them.
And you can't get rid of the back
ache until you cure the kidney ache.
If the kidneys are well nnd strong,
the rest of the system is pretty sure to
be in vigorous health.
Donn's Kidney Rills make strong,
healthy kidneys.
Mrs. O. J. Gilson, Lincoln Ave.,
Plattsmouth, Nebr., says: "We have
used Donn's Kidney Pills in our family
for lame back ami other kidney dis
orders ahd they have brought the
best results. My advice to anyone
suffering from kidney complaint is
to give this remedy a trial."
