('apt. Cottier and wife of Chicago
were in town a few hours Saturday
morning, returning home from a busi
ness trip out west, arriving on No. H,
and resuming his journey eastward on
No. 4, to Ills home In Chicago. Capt.
Cottier is tho consulting engineer for
all the great Ilarrlman lines, with
headquarters In the general otllces In
the Windy City, lie Is a most pleas
ant gentleman to meet. Mr. Cottier
was In 1'lattsmouth many years ago,
when the Union l'aclllc was llrst cross

here was merely to see the changes
that time had mado In our city, lie
was very favorably Impressed with

MAYOR BERING AT HOME
He Enjoyed the Trip Hugely, and Says He
Would Not Have Missed It tor
Twice the Cost.
Mayor Gerlng returned from his
trip to the Bryan reception in New
York City Friday evening, having left
the Nebraska contingent on their
return trip at Detroit, Michigan, to
visit friends In other sections.
He says It would take columns of
space to even give a feint description
of the magnificent manner In which
the rebraska delegation was enter
tained In New York. It Is said by
some that the New Yorkers are a cold
blooded set, but Mayor Gcring says
they did not display any of their cold
ness on this occasion. He tlilr.ks more
of the people of thc great metropolis
than ever, and says they are warm
people, and when they take a notion
to entertain they do so In the right
Mayor Gerlng says the reception of
Mr. liryan at Detroit was a grand af
fair, attended by an immense crowd
The reception proper occurred on the
fairgrounds, and was attended by one
hundred and fifty thousand people.
He says It was far beyond theexpec
tattoos of anyone of the Nebraska
delegation, and the enthusiasm for
Bryan was greater, If possible, than
that in New York.
At Detroit, Mr. Gerlng left the
party to visit friends in Cleveland,
Ohio, and other points in returning
home. He says he enjoyed the trip
throughout, and returns home greatly
elated over the successor the recep
tions Mr. Bryan and his party received
in New York and other cities all
along the return trip.
Mayor Gerlng feels much benclited
by his trip, and the Journal is pleased
to see him back again looking well,
witli an inspiration that means much
to the democratic party not only in
Cass county, but In thc state of Ne
braska at large.

Over the Action of the County Commis
sioners In Refusing to Advertise
The l'latte river bridge proposition
received another black eye Tuesday
when tho Cass county commissioners
refused to readvertlse for bids for Its
repair, l'or almost two years Louis
ville people have contented themselves
with promises but now the commis
sioners have arrived at a point where
promises will no longer sullice and
they come out point blank and say
they are done. 1 1 Is true they made a
grand stand play by advertising for
bids which were so high that ll will
be hard to convince the public that It
was not a case of juggling to beat thc
proposition. Now that thero Is as
surance of bids outside of thc bridge
trust the commissioners refuse to re
advertlse. More evidence.
It Is up to the people of this vicinity
to do what they should have done a
long time ago, bring suit against the
two counties and compel them to re
pair the bridge. Louisville people
have refrained from doing this Ins-
cause thc majority have had faith In
what tho commissioners have told
them, namely: "That if we tlnd the
bridge In question to be a county
bridge we will repair It as readily as
any other county bridge." If they
haven't ascertained this fact someone
should show them thc ruling of thc
supreme court. Thc fact In tho
matter Is they have played horse with
Louisville long enough. wc must,
either fight or duck out. of the ring.
It is up to Louisville. Lqulsvillc
THE CASE OF HITE VS. HITE
A Petition Suit Brought by Son gainst His
J t seems the lirst case called in d Is
trict court Monday was that of Bite
vs. I lite son against father. The
case, however, was decided In favor of
plalntllT ere the old man could arrive
here. He had been over in Illinois
working in the harvest fields, and ow
ing to thc lateness of the ti al n he fail
ed to get here in time to register any
efense. There is a little history con
ncctcd with this case, which may
prove interesting to some of the read
rsof the Journal.
The defendant, David Jlitc, who Is
(l years of age, several years ago got
Into a little trouble out near Alvo,
this county. He possessed HO acres of
land, which Is now valued at fso.oo an
acre, when tins trouble came up, the
old man placed all his property In his
wife's name to save It, never thinking
that what has occured would ever oc
cur, and paid no farther attention to
In February, l'.0.i, Mrs. Hite died
and Clias. F. 1 lite was appointed ad
ministrators. Then comes to the
front, James A. Hlte, who lives In
Custer county, Neb., where he owns
liiO acres of land, and sues for a divi
sion of the little homestead, which Is
so badly needed In the declining years
of the old father, with the result fa
vorable to the son.
Those Interested In the estate are T.
, Hite, Chas. F. Hlte and Mrs. Flora
Lewis, of Cass county; Mrs. Nellie M
Ryan, Denver, Colo.; Mrs. Nora How
ell, Garfield county, Neb., and Mrs.
Alice May I'inkham, Holly, Colo. All
these are brothers and sisters of James
A. Hlte, who brought the suit, and be
It said to their credit, they were all
opposed to the same, prcferlng to let
thc aged father have use of the prop
erty during his life, which cannot be
many years, to say the least.
David Hlte, the defendant, has been
a resident or cass county for years,
and thc placing of his property In the
hands of the wife, has been the out
come of this suit. It Is an uncommon
procedure In family ties, and while the
case has been decided against the aged
father, Mr. Hlte proposes to stay thc
proceedings If possible by getting a
new trial, or take an appeal to the
Hi Last Papers.
William Habcrman, took out his
last naturalization papers yesterday,
and now feels like a free American
citizen. It cost him three dollars to
do so, but he says that It is the law of
the couutry, and that all foreign born
citizens who expect to exercise the
right of an American citizen, In the
fullest sense of the term, should go
and do likewise. Mr. Habcrman Is a
good citizen and a democrat.

PATRONIZE THE NEWSPAPER
As the Best Antidote for the Majl Order
The Beatrice Commercial club has
adopted resolutions recommending a
more liberal use by local merchants of
the newspaper advertising columns of
that city as the best means of check
ing the Inroads of their greatest ene
my, the "catalogue house." Follow
ing are the resolutions:
Whereas, Thc newspapcrsof the city
have co-operated freely with thc club
In the publication of Items of general
Interest and are of thc opinion of thc
directors of thc club the best medium
for reaching the people through their
advertising columns, and
Whereas, The catalogue houses are
the greatest enemy to the legitimate
retail merchant; therefore be it
Resolved, By the board of directors
of theBeatrlcc Commercial club that
we recommend a much more liberal
advertising patronage of the local
newspapers to every Individual, tlrm or
corporation now engaged In business,
believing that it will add largely to
thc volume of business, and to thc pro
fit of every retail merchant and bring
about a closer and more intimate ac
quaintance between thc merchant and
thc farmer, who orders from the cata
logue largely for thc reason he sees but
few goods advertised for sale In thc
local newspapers; whereas, the cata
logue will always be found in every
home and In It a full description of
every Item of household use; and be It
further resolved that In the opinion of
ttils club It would not only be wise but
profitable for every business house
without exception, large or small hav
ing any kind of goods for sale to make
It known by publishing an advertise
ment in one or all of the newspapcrsof
