Down with the primary law says the
Cass county republicans. Now will
the whole state of Nebraska please sit
up and take notice and fall in line.
The whole county is coming to this
city on the Fourth and all who come
will sec the grandest celebration of
the century. The committees in charge
arc hustling day and night to make
this event something to be remembered
for all time. Come to Plattsmouth
and bring your families.
The Ncws-IIeruld has added to its
B.ilmorintion list a large number ol new
names the past week, and it looks as
if that 5,000 will be forthcoming very
easilv. The various contestants are
liustlinir in earnest and are all getting
wmiltH. an.if their work to date is an
ution of what they propose doing
all through the contest, tlu; value of
the News-lleruld as an advertising
medium will be increased materially.
At anmecting of the Republican
County Central Committee, held at
Weeping Water last Saturday a
goodly number of influential republi
cans' were present. It was the sense
of the committee and those present
that the primaries should be held on
the ninth of July and the county con
vention on the sixteenth at Union at
which time candidates for the various
county offices would be recommended
or endorsed. It was the opinion of all
that f,he primary law was not all that
it should be and this action of the Cass
cou.ity republicans is the first step
having in view the- repeal of that law.
Those present at the meeting of the
committee have given it out cold that
they will expect all candidates for office
to abide by the results of the county
convention and they pledged them
selves to take off their coats and work
for the nominees of the convention
Any aspirant for county olliee who feels
that he still wants the primaries to de
termine who shall be a candidate will
have a strenous campaign cut out for
him and will surely run up against
the real thing.
A LAW THAT MAKES
A law enacted by the Sixty-fist con
gress which is of the utmost import
ance to the people of this entire coun
try is that of providing for the agricul
tural entry of the surface of coal laud,
while reserving all mineral rights to
the government. Under its provisions
00,000,000 acres of land will be thrown
open to settlement, which means
thousands of new homes in the great
est and a tremendous lifting of pres
sure from certain congested areas of
population. This land is chiefly in
Montana and the far northwest,
where the climate and soil are adapted
to robust life and good crops of grain
and fruit, conditions that invite most
appealingly to the man with energy
and small means who is looking for
chance to establish n home and acquire
This is one of the conservation laws
which the president urged upon con-

impossible to measure or estimate
Apparent upon its face, however, is
that fact of its far-reaching advan
tages which will be available very soon.
i his land is uot only fertile for agricul
tural purposes, but is believed to be
prolific of mineral wealth, chiefly coal
and it is much more desirable for coid
production than the coal land of Alaska
because of its proximity to the market
and the comparative cost of produc
tion. Nor will the present settlement
and the farming of the land
hinder its exploitation when the
time comes for the eoaljrather it will
facilitate it, for it will tend toward a
general settlement of the country and
th establishment of new towns or com
munities and shipping points.
This act and the one clearly defining
power of the president to withhold
from settlement any land for the con
servation of water rights arc two of
the most important conservationmeas
ures passed. Bee.
I hereby announce myself as a
candidate for County Commissioner
from the Third district, subject to
the will of the republicans, at the
primary election this fall.

President Taft is naturally elatec
that congress has done in two years
almost all the republican party prom
ised the people it would perforin in
four years. This record is the best
expression of the leadership of William
II. Taft. It is a leadership character
ized by calm persistenct sound judg
ment and wise concilaiion, but in the
end productive of remarkable results.
No one can get away from the fact
that what the republican platform
of l'.IOS told the people would be done
in the event of republican success has
been done, substantially, and that
in rtwo yoais instead of four.
li is scarcely possime mat even Ins
most uncompromising crtitics will
deny the president the credit of hav
ing held the various elements of his
party down to a common level of busi
ness to the extent of securing the ful
fillment of this program? Subtract
his directing influence and what would
we have had?. When we consider
the ambitious extents to which the
platform promises went the achieve
ments of this congress loom up in
something like their actual light.
The president has already said that,
while he is elated at results, he is not
entirely satisfied and hopes in the
next congress to be able to complete
some work left, either incomplete or
temporantly crowded into the back
ground by the big things. But the
one imprcssivs truth is that the laws
which this congress has written upon
the statute books arc in the direction
of constructive legislation, and if
they are imperfect, as all such laws are.
their enactment in their present form
will make their revision or perfection
a matter of but simple effort, the big
task having been accomplished. Bee
In order that Cass county might
have some show of holding Union's
youthful prisoners hardly out of knee
trousers, the enterprising little berg
sent up a structure Saturday morning
wherein the sheriff might place his
confidence and also his prisoners.
Although the new jail is not quite as

On the roof glares the inscription,
"Improved Cass County Jail. Donated

strong roof covers walls of latice work
which would have at least made a
lighter and more sanitary pen for the
county guests. The strength of the
structure lies in the door, the weak
place of the present jail. The exit of
the improved building is swung on

is another lock, the directions showing
that it is so placed to be used in case
of an emergency. The calaboose is
certainly a most magnificent addition
to the county buildings and the com
missioners and sheriffs can not be too
hearty in their thanks to the good neoi
people of Union for the solving of the
important jau quaesuon.
So proud were the sherijf and other
county officers of the new buildinir
that it was at once balanced on top
of the cannon in the court house yard
and photographed. The Union citi
zens are sure there when it comes to
putting up fine buildi ngs in a hurry.
Th Way These Beehive Shaped Dwell
ings Are Constructed.
The Eskimo vault is a true dome.
It exerts no outward thrust and re
quires no temporary scaffolding. It
is also unique in that its material is
not brick or stone, but snow.
The construction is used for the
beehive shaped winter houses of
these so culled savages and is spiral
in plan. A row of blocks is first
laid on the ground in a circle or,
more exactly, a polygon. Each of
these has a slightly slant top, and
each thus raises its surface a little
beyond the last until when the cir
cle is completed the gap in height
between the last and first blocks
gives the thickness for the follow
ing courses. In these the upper
and lower surfaces of each block
are parallel, as in a brick, but the
gradual upward trend given by the
first course is of necessity main
tained. In each successive round the
snow bricks are leaned inward more
by having their lower surfaces
sliced oil to a bevel. If set square
ly end to end they would before
long lean inward so far that they
would tumble. For this reason the
end of the block last laid is cut at
an angle. The next following block
has the joining end slanted at the
reverse ancle. Thus it fits in be- i
hind the preceding and ia prevented
by it from slipping inward.
As the house grows the circles
become smaller until at last only
an irregular polygonal opening is
left. This is filled with a wedge
shaped block cut to shape. It is,
however, not a keystone, as the re
mainder of the structure supports
The blocks of firm snow are usu
ally dressed outside and handed for
placing to the man on the inside.
The last block he holds up with ono
hand, slices to shape with his ivory
knife in the other and drops into
position. He is then entirely in
closed in the vault. Only after the
house itself is entirely completed
does he cut out the low door, which
to keep out the cold as much as
possible is only big enough to crawl
A long, low tunnel ia then built
in front of the door to break the
force of the arctje's icy blasts. Even
the window is present. A small
aperture is cut out over the door
and filled with a pane of clear, thin
ice. All that is omitted ia the flue
or chimney. Whatever heat is pro
duced by the seal oil lamps ia want
ed inside, warmth being a more se
rious necessity in the climate than
ventilation or freedom from smoke.

Death of Capt. Strelght.
Heart trouble Saturday morning
ended the quite lengthy life of Captain
William II. Streight, one of the
members of the Masonic home. His
death occurred at one o'clock Satur
day morning, the old gentleman hav
i g been of very poor health ever
since he entered the institution about
the middle of last May. The many
inmates of the home, who had learned
to love and admire the captain as a
life time friend will greatly miss his
presence in their midst.
Funeral services were held Sunday
at Omaha, where one of his daughter
makes her home. . He was born in
Cincinnatti, Ohio, in June 1854,
his death occurring but two days after
