The Journal's New Press.
Tlio next Issue of Mils paper will be
printed on a new mbcock-Uellance
press one of the latest In modern
Improvements. The paper will also
be changed to six-columns to the
page and eight pages all printed at
home. A new three-horse power Cush
man engine has also been added to
furnish tho power. We simply make
this announcement for tho fact that It
will take several days to remove the
old Campbell, upon which the Journal
has been printed for so many years
uid replaco it witu the new one.
icrefore, If our patrons should re-
thclr paper one day late next
week they will understand the reason
Two years ago when the present
management became possessors of, the
Journal outfit It was with the full In
tentlon of Improving tho paper and
ofllce as time and circumstances would
permit. We have followed our orlgl
nal plan up to the present; and when
the new press and engine are placed
In running order, we think we hare
fully accomplished our object, of
boasting of one of the most complete
newspaper and job olllccs In Nebraska;
outside of the larger cities.
We feel very grateful to our friends
for the very liberal patronage extend
cd In the past, and hope they will not
only continue to do as well In the fu
ture, but do all In their power to assist
us In Increasing the same. We now
have a subscription list of nearly
twelve hundred, and with a little ef'
fort on the part of our friends through'
out Cass county, we should at least ln
crease this number to 1800 or 2000 by
January 1, 1905.

Judge Farker doesn't say much, to
be sure, but he continues to saw wood

Henry R. Cerlog for Congress.
As will he seen by a perusal of the
proceedings elsewhere In this issue of
the Journal, the Louisville convention
last Thursday unanimously endorsed
Mayor Gering of this city for congress.
No one person on earth is bettor pleased
with this action of the convention than
the editor of this paper.
Being associated w ith him to quite
an extent in conducting the campaign
last fall, we had an excellent opportun
ity to judge of his qualities both as an
oruanlzer and his splendid abilities.
To him the democrats of Cass county
owe a great deal more than the simple
endorsement the position now occu
pied by Pilowhard 15urkett, who from
present appearances wants to be elect
ed to congress and the United States
Senate both at the same time. They
should begin the work of securing his
nomination right now, and each one
make a special effort to this end.
Henry R. Gering contains all the es
sentials necessary to make a most
creditable representative In congress,
and as to ability, he Is as far superior
to the man who failed to pass a third-
grade teacher's examination over In
Mills county, Iowa, as Plowliard Is su
perior to the lowest grade teacher In
Cass county, with all hisexperiencc in
Mr. Gering Is a loyal democrat
in fact, his democracy is Iron clad
and with a united effort of his party
friends In Cass county he can be nom
inated, and when once nominated, he
will make the greatest Plowliard that
ever graced the halls of congress "hunt
his hole" at every opportunity.
We arc entering upon a campaign
in which the republican party Is called
upon to explain a great many of their
acts in state and nation, and the great
wind-pag apologist will como In for his
share of explaining to the people.
If Henry It. Gering is nominated.

he ever experienced. And If elected,
he will treat every section ofthedis
trict alike, and not work altogether In
the Interests of his home city and
county, to the detriment of other lo
calltlcs, as Burkctt has done.
Whoop 'cr up for Gering, boys!
Secretary Takt is going about the
country telling the people that on no
account should the Filipinos be encour
aged to expect independence. He says
we must cease talking about It. He
announces that the doctrine of self-
government is "an Impossible dogma,'
and a "rhetorical phrase," and the less
said about It the better. The English
have always talked the same way about
What has Burkctt done to merit his
candidacy. for two olllccs at the same
time? If he is really a candidate for

congress? Perhaps he don't care to
take any chances on an uncertainty

STREET FAIR AND CARNIVAL
be Da) Attendance Small, But the Streets
Thronged In the Evening.
The Cosmopolitan Carnival company
are with us this week. They came in
over the Missouri Pacltlc Sunday even-
ng, and early Monday morning Ugan
arrangements for the weeks entertain
ment. This occupied nearly all day,
and but little was done In the way of
entertaining the people. The weather
for the first three days was all that
possibly could be desired. Old Sol con
tinuing to shed his pleasing rays in
such a manner as to please all. In fact
his pleasing countenance was so satis
factory to the farmers that very few
ceased planting to come to town to
view the sights. Main street mcr-
cnants, along which thoroughfare was
placed the principal shows and free ex
hibitions, was decorated with flags,
and In the evening was illuminated
with electric lights. The attendance
in the day time has been small, but at
night the crowds have been quite large,
many coming In from the territory ad
jacent and adjoining towns.
The company furnishing the attrac
tions Is a good one, and are giving the
people all that they have advertised,
and more, too. The high diver, for
nstance, which Is one of the most dan
gerous and dilllcult feats produced by
any similar company. Loop the Loop,
the high diving dog, and several other
free exhibitions are attractions well
worth coming miles to sec. Up to last
nlk'ht nothing has occurred to make
any arrests necessary.
The Cosmopolitan company Is free
from rakes, and so far have con
ducted themselves as perfect ladles and
gentlemen, aud their shows have been
free from anything Immoral, or that
which would cause to blush the most
If the weather continues favorable
tomorrow, and Saturday, will perhaps
be tho largest In attendance, as many
farmers will finish corn planting today
Senator Lodge defiantly said just
before congress adjourned: "We will
not revise the tariff now; we will not
investigate the postolllce department
now; we are going straight ahead and
when we get ready we will do what
ever we see fit to do about these
things." In other words: "We will
do whatever we please and when we
please, and thus we serve notice upon
the people of the United States."
This seems to be the accentof the boss,
No working man should ever again
object to government by injuctlon after
reading the following from Teddy's
"American Ideals" (vol. II, p. 18)
"Men who object to what they style
'government by injunction' are, as re
gards the essential principles of gov
ernment, In hearty sympathy with
their remote, skin-clad ancestors, who
lived In caves, fought one another with
stone-headed axes, and ate the mam
moth and woolly rhinoceros."
