Will Build New Bridges.
Wednesday evening's Omaha News
says: It is believed that the IJurling
ton road will build a cut-off from
liellevue to Plattsmouth, crossing the
riatte river at a point two miles below
the present bridge at Oreapolis, and
will also reconstruct the high bridge
across the Missouri river at Platts
mouth, or build a new one.
General C. P. Manderson, general so
licitor of the road, and Chief Engineer
I. S. P. Weeks went to Plattsmouth
this morning. It is believed that they
have gone to adjust some legal mat
ters in reference to the right-of-way
The bridge across the Missouri was
built when the river was considered a
navigable stream, which necessitated
a very high structure. The Burling
ton have asked congress for the privi
lege of building a bridge nearer the
water. The Burlington recently made
a proposition to the commissioners o
""Cass county to sell the old bridge over
tut Platte, but they have turned the
proposition down. Local capitalists
at Plattsmouth are now negotiating
with the company for the purchase of
the framework and abutments of the
bridge, the heavy irons and rails to be
removed. If this deal is consummated
the parties buying it will replank it
and make a toll bridge of it.

Brief Bits of Politics.
The voters of thiscounty realize that
a vote for the candidates on the dem
ocratic ticket is a vote to place the
affairs of the people of this county in
the hands of men capable in every way
to properly manage the same, and men
in whom the people have confidence.
The democratic lloat convention,
held at Nebraska City last Saturday
afternoon, nominated Mayor T. K.

vacancy. The nomination was made
The Journal lias no fault whatever
to tind with James Sage because he
worked and voted for W. 1) Wheeler
for sheriff, but on the contrary he is
entitled to praise for his good judg

cise the same good judgment again
this year he would undoubtedly vote
for John McBride. Mr. Sage's action
four years ago is hereby commended
for consideration to people who w ant

The educational matters of this
county should only be entrusted to a
man who is thoroughly up-to-date in

the democrats are fortunate in having

Work on the brick veneering of the
new .Methodist church building has
been delayed for a week, on accoui
of difficulty in securing brick, caused
by laljor troubles at the yards where
the brick is manufactured near South
Omaha. The brick being used is called
rock-faced brick, which are common
hard burned brick that has had one
side roughened or broken off after the
brick has been burned. This work is
done by hand, with a hammer ant'

W. C. McGinnls, of Bedford, Iowa,
sheriff of Taylor county, accompanied
by Deputy 11. M. Long, arrived In the
city early Sunday morning on the trail
of a party of four men who are wanted
in Taylor county to answer to a charge
of burglary. The Iowa ofllcers called
on t he local oilicers to aid them, and
the parties wanted were soon located
near the It. & M. railroad bridge over
the Missouri river, where they were
encamped in a wagon. When the oftl
cers went down to the camp Sunday
afternoon only two of the men were
at the wagon, and they were placed
under arrest and brought up town and
locked up in jail. They gave their
names as Mose Weston and J. II. Bced.
The other two men wanted evidently
learned that the Iowa oilicers were
here after them, and lost no time in
getting out of the country, leaving
their outfit of live horses and a light
spring wagon behind. The oilicers re
mained in hiding near the wagon all
Sunday night, but the men did not
show up in that vicinity to take their
property, and on Monday morning tiie
outfit was brought up town and will
be held for further investigation as to
ownership. Weston and Becd were
taken back to Iowa on Monday morn
ing by Sheriff McGinnis, while Mr.
Long continued the search for the
two missing men.
Prof. W. W. Drummond arrived in
town Tuesday evening, and has been
visiting with friends here. The pro
fessor has been an inmate of the hos
pital for the insane at Lincoln for
nearly 4en years past, and was allowed
to come down here on parole for a few
days. His mental condition is such
that he recognized many of his former
acquaintances here very readily, and
appeared to fully comprehend what
was going on around him.

James H. Herold for Treasurer.
As the campaign draws to a close
the Journal feels it incumbent upon
it to call the attention of the voters
of Cass county to the claims of James
II. Heroic, the democratic candidate
for county treasurer. Mr. Herold is
endowed with every qualification for
the office he seeks. For more than a
quarter of a century he has been iden-
tilicd with the business life of Platts-ino-.ith,
and the long training he has
received renders him peculiarly fitted
for such a position as he now aspires
to. In every way the democratic can
didate is the better one to be voted
for. In electing him no mistake will
be made, and a man will be chosen
who will fill the oflice of treasurer to
the satisfaction of everybody having
business in the office, as well as to the
In this campaign Mr. Herold has
made as his slogan "economy in run
ning the oilice." He stands pledged
to weed out useless employes and to
reduce the running expenses of the
ofiice to a just and reasonable basis.
He is of the belief that there is room
for much saving of the tax-payers'
money, and if elected he proposes to
see that the money is saved.
Mr Herold also pledges himself to
see to it that no incompetent or care
less employes are appointed under him
Every man occupying a subordinate
position in the oilice must be qualified
to till it, and no mistakes involving
loss to citizens will be permitted. He
will also publish a monthly statement
showing the people where their money
is, and thus keep the public informed
as to the condition of the treasury.
For these reasons the Journal be
lieves that Mr. Herold, whom the
democrats have named for treasurer,
should be elected. In addition, no
man stands higher personally in the
community for integrity and honest
dealing, and these qualities bespeak
for James Herold a large popular
vote. As the time comes on to vote
let the voter remember that a vote
for Herold is a vote for economy, com
petency and public supervision of the
