Large Crowd at Football Game to See
Plattsmoiith Win From Ashland
by Score of 12 to 0.
Although cloudy and somewhat dis
agreeable out of doors yesterday, it
was truly a day of thanksgiving for
all of ourcltlcns, who during the day
went to the various churches to return
thanks for the blessings of the past
year. Beginning early hi the morn

wedding and a dance in theevening
, On the Football Field.
As soon as the big dinners were put
out of sight, many hurried to the foot
ball tield, where the Independent team
of this city were scheduled to play the
Ashland boys. The visitors won the
toss up, chose to defend the north
goal, and after the kick off to Platts-
mouth good gains were made In
series of line plunges, which resulted
In Mapes carrying the ball over the
line for the first touchdown, just seven
minutes after the ball was put Into
play. Miner failed to kick goal, leav

was gained, and hall lost on downs.

ball wa pushed over their line, scor

In conversation with an employe of
the Missouri Pacific, he stated that
the people along the line need not
worry about the taking olf of the two
new trains. The trains are doing a
great deal better than was expected
and the passenger traftlo Is increasing

business men. Thero never has been

pleasing to those on tbe west side of

county seat, itisjust as much so to
THE REASONS VERf SIMPLE
Journal Patrons Wonder Why We Do Not
Print Commissioners' Proceedings.
Many of the Journal patrons
throughout the county are wonder
ing why we do not publish the county
commissioners' proceedings. The rea
son we do not do so Is simply this:
When the Journal was given the coun
ty printing, amounting, under con
tract, not to exceed twenty-live dol
lars, we published the proceedings
free of charge, and also printed all
road notices free. The contract for
this small amount of printing was
given by the republican board to a pa
per of their political faith, and they
have been paying this paper for print
ing the proceedings each tlmo and
also paying for printing road notices;
work that we performed without a
cent of pay. We do not think such
action on the part of the commission
ers Is right, and this is why we refuse
to do work for nothing that another
paper gets paid for, and this is. why
we have refused to publish the pro
ceedings, l here are nearly as many
democratic tax payers In Cass county
as there are republicans, and they
have right to know what the com
missioners aie doing with their mon
ey. P.ut the niggardly effort on the
part of tin: commissioners to get the
Journal to print their proceedings free
ot charge won t work. Men who are
elected to no business for tbe people
should not let their polit ical prejudices
weaken them by not giving such
printing to a paper that has tin l.irg
est circulation by several hundred of
any paper In the county.

more trood words for the Missoiui I'a-

Another Party for the West.
W. H. Tool, the hustling real estate
man ot Weeping water, was hi the
city Fiid.iy and gave the Journal a
ousant call. Ho informed us that
he would leave again next week with
a party of prospective land huveis.
l'he part y w-iil go to Chase county,
where some excellent bargains in firm

Fool has perhaps disposed of more
western land than any three real

untiring InhisclTorts to please those
who desire to settle In the west per

"It Is an old story," says a local i m
press agent, "and I suppose the news
paper men get tired of publishing It
year after year, but the public forgets.
Vou might make It short this year by
saying that last year more Christmas
presents were delivered after Christ
mas than before that date. There was
really a rush of package delivery for
three days after Christmas. That
means that everybody should have
been three days earlier In shipping."
The Christmas express business Is
unlike most other business congestions
In that It strikes the whol count ry at
one time and no section is exempt:
therefore the companies cannot draw
on one section for reserve forces. Lv
cry express office In the country and
every train carrying express matter Is
filled to overflowing with Christmas
traffic. Insca.sons of prosperity the
business Is so good that the express
companies haven't the facilities for
