Tin: ticket at the head of this column
is one to be proud of. The record of
each and everyone is not besmirched in
any way. Their characters will com
pare most favorably with the very best
citizens of Cass county, and will bear
the very closest inspection of the voters.
Whkn it is reported that the Union
Pacific passenger receipts at 2 cents a
mile are $X,nM a month greater in Neb
raska than before the ' Nebraska pas
senger rate reduction law, it may be
legally decided that the only thing con
fiscated was the reduction which has
disappeared into increasing receipts.
Tiik office of county assessor should
be occupied by a thorough business man.
II. M. Soer.mch.se:. is one of ti e most
competent n:e:i in Cass county for this
particular position, and possesses all the
necessary essentials to see that the bus
iness of the ollice is carriei out to the
SfKAKlxtt of officials who enjoy the
confidence and respect of the people of
Cass county, where would you find one
who is better liked than W. E. Rosen
craris? Has he not made a model coun
ty clerk? Ask any democrat, unpreju
diced republican or anybody familiar
with the sffsirs of the county.

Ik the people of Otoe and Cass coun
ties desire a judge of the district court
who cannot be controlled by a small
ring of lawyers in Plattsmouth and Ne
braska City, they will vote for Judge
Travis. His decisions will be rendered
according to law, and not in accordance
with the wishes of any ring of lawyers.
Everyone can depend upon getting jus
tice at the hands of Judge Travis.
People with red, sporting blood in
their veins may prepare for enjoyment
this winter when they begin to see how
the centralizing Big Stick is used on the
railroads. When they see the game
ness with which campaign-contributing
railroad presidents from "administra
tion States" stand the punishment, they
need not stop to consider that the Big
Stick is a stuffed club carefully padded
for the purpose of the exibition.
When, we say that a man of seventy
five years is too old to be elevated to the
supreme bench, we me&n no disrespect
to age. No bnsiness firm or corpora
tion in the land would entrust important
business affairs to such a person. Mr.
Reese has lived out the period alloted
to men, and the fact that he himself
does not realize that his age and infirm
ities disqualify him for the active
duties of an over-worked bench, is of it
self evidence that he is unfit for the
1 he Weeping Water Republican i.i
commecting on our ticket and platform
savs: "As yet we have not heard
whether the successful candidates on
November 5 that he supports will stand
on his platform. It looks like Thomas
Jefferson's namesake was disgusted
with some democratic candidates." We
desire to say in reply that any honest
man can stand on our platform. And
our candidates are honest men. In re
gard to the other alegation, we are not
disgusted with a man on the democratic
ticket, and that is more than we can
say of others. Would the Republican
have us be more explicit? Nehawka
Hon. II. D. Travis, democratic nomi
nee for district judge, came down from
Plattsmouth yesterday afternoon and

The kind of "home rule" Mr. Taft
starts in the Philippines this week has
not been started in Ohio yet, but there
is a profound conviction in Washington
that this country needs all of it Mr. Taft
can bring back with him from Asia.
"lirazen" effrontry must give place
to "tantaline" if it is true that a diam
ond drill at revolutions a minute
barly scratches the surface of a plate
of the new Dakota metal. Obviously a
tantalum front is what the Republican
party needs foe its pretense of reform
ing its own campaign contributors.
Tin: Sugar trust is disturbed because

New York Republicans are said to
"fear the president's censure" for
fusing with New York Populists, but,
the President himself does not fear cen
sure from the admirers of Senator
Piffer, of Kansas. After reading Sen
ator Peffer's masterpiece on the fall of
populism and fusing with the Roosetelt
administration, they go to the length of
waiving whiskers as an evidence of
good faith in the Republican fusionist
from New York.
The fact that Christie Metzer never
held an office and never asked for one,
is one great reason why he should be
elected to the office of district clerk.
No man has a lifelease upon any office
in the court house, and many people in
Cass county believe that the present
incumbent at the office of district clerk
has held office longer now than has ever
been allotted to any one, and should have
quietly "stepped down and out" with
out being forced to by the voters, we
do not believe in this modus oper-andi
of holding on to the public teat
Mr. Metzger was bom and reared in
Cass county and his fihe qualification
especially fit him for this office. His
honesty and intignity go hand in hand
with that of compietency, ami the seare
sufficient measures why he should be
successful at the polls in November.
Judge Geo. L. Loomis.
I am anxious to do everything I
to assist in the election of Judge
omis and I will take pleasure in doing
everything I can toward furthering his
candidacy. C. J. Smyth.
I certainly feel friendly to Judge Lo-o-r.is
and will do everything I can to
help him. I want to see him elect

I am glad for the opportunity to
testify the high regard I have for
Judge L'" nis as a lawyer and a man.
I am greatly pleased with his nomi
nation and I sincerely hope he will be
elected. John J. Sullivan.
The nomination of Judge Loomis
meets with heartly approval of all the
Democrats and Populists in Platte
county. Edgar Howard.
I am doing everythin g I can to advance
the candidacy of Judge Loomis. He is
clean.able, will make an excellant judge
and I believe he will be elected.
W. H. Thompson.
I feel greatly interested in t'.ie success
of Geo. L. Loomis this fall and am i
anxious to see him elected. I have
known him for many years. He has
always been deeply interested in the
success of the principals for which he
stand. I shall do everything possible
to assist in his election.
W. J. Bryan.
I shall do what I can to advance the
interests of Judge Loomis and con
tribute to his election believing him in
every way worthy and qualified for the
position of Judge of our highest court.
W. V. Allen.
I am doing every thing I can to as
sist in the election of Geo. L. Loomis
for Judge of the supreme court.
I. L. Albert.
I am greatly interested in the success
of our fall ticket this fall. I hear a
great many well informed Republicans
as well as the Democrats say they be
lieve Mr. Loomis will be elected.
Richard L. Metcalfe.
I can assure you that Judge Loomis
will have the hearty support of all
Democrats in this corner of the state.
Personally I am deeply interested in
his election as our supreme court is sad
ly in need of not only a democrat but
a lawyer of the integrity and abality.
Guy T. Graves.
Geo. L. Loomis possesses the quali
fications, the mental and moral courage
and the democratic spirit and stamina
of character so greatly needed on the
supreme bench. The people of Neb
raska will make no mistake in selecting
him a3 supreme Judge. We should have
the united support of the Democrats and
Pobulists. O. W. Meter.
A. J. Box is a man whose appearance

I. voting for II. M. Soennichsen, the
people can rest assured they are voting
for a gentleman and scholar, and one
remarkably well fitted for the import
ant position of county assessor. Rear
in mind, also, that Mr. Soennichsen is
well posted on everything that pertains
to the duties of the office. A vote for
Melchoir Soennichsen is a vote for the
right man for the right place.
Miss Foster, candidate for county
superintendent of schools, is very popu

but she is also popular with all who de

Chas. R. Jordon is one of the best
men in Cass county for county com
missioner, and we can see no reason
why he should not be elected. He
comes from a section of the county that
needs a represenetive on the board.
Weeping Water is not entitled to two
members as that vicinity now boasts of.
While the western part of the county
has had .no represenetive for several
years. Plattsmouth has had one, Weep
ing Water will have one, and why not
give a commissioner in the ether section
of the county. Vote for Charley Jordon
and against Turner Zink, and then the
the commissioners will come from dif
ferent parts of the county. No one
beleives that Weeping Water should be
entitled to two representatives on the
board, and by voting for Charles R.
Jordon, you vote for just the man for
We Wonder Why?
Thirty-five editors, nearly all of whom
were Republicans, met in the city of
Pittsburgh, Pa. , the other day and pas
sed resolutions denouncing the paper
trust and demand the immediate remov
al of the protective tariff on wood pulp
and all other ingredients entering into
the manufacture of white paper.
Strangely enough these Republican
editors did not stop to consider the dam
age that might be done to our "infant
industries" by putting wood pulp on the
free list. They did not think that
thousands of American laborers might
be thrown out ot employment if Can
adian products were thus given access
into our markets on an equal footing
with our own. They did not even ask
that the tariff be reduced to a point
where the difference between the price
of foreign labor and our own should be
equalized. They asked for immediate
and absolute free trade, and showed
the desire to smash the sacred McKinley
tariff, in this one particular at least, to
smithereens. Now we wonder why
these Republican publishers should
demand free trade in white paper in
gredients but should hold up their hands
in holy horror at the idea of even a
partial reduction in the duty on steel
rails, for instance. Why should they
deem it the proper thing to put wood
pulp on a free list and yet resist the
free importation of sugar? Why should
they want to buy the particular goods
they stand in need of in the cheapest
market and ask others to buy in the
dearest? In short, why can they see so
clearly when the shoe pinches their own
feet but be so blind when it squeezes
the other fellow's corns?
The justice who heard the Ferguson
scandal case, dismissed the accused.
He did not give much credit to the
testimony of a witness who admitted
before the world that she was simply a
depraved character, moved by jealously
to destroy the preacher. Of which
some of his jealous brethern took ad
vatage of to persecute and drive from
the pulpit one who had shown himself
to be far above them in everything ten
ding to manhood and ability.
There is a crying demand for active
men upon the supreme bence. The
work is so far behind at the present
time that commissioners have been
appointed to help transact the public
business. It would therefore seem the
height of folly to elect a man who by
reason of age and infirmities is not able
to fill the position, especially when
there is no more pressing demand for
the election than that Chairman Rose
be provided a fat place as clerk of the
court. Vote for Judge Loomis and you
have a man in every way competent
for supreme juoVe.
If the Journal did not wield more in
fluence among the democrats of Cass
county than the Nebraska City Tribune
docs in Otoe county, we would sell out
and leave. The Tribune is edited by
one Frank Helvey, a hanger-on in the
Hayward-Pitzer-Jessen combine, and
does their biding when they crack the
whip. We say again, that Jesse L.
Root is the candidate of this gang, and
they, together with two attorneys in
this city, agreed among themselves that
be should be the republican candidate
district judge. When the voters of Otoe
and Cass counties learn this fact, which
they surely will, their reason for want,
ing Root, becomes very apparent. Vote
forjudge Travis, who will'never be
controlled by any ring of lawyers, either
in Plattsmouth or Nebraska City.
State Superintendent McBrien
has appointed W. D. Redmond, a dem
ocrat, as his assistant, to succeed L. C.
Harnley, whose sudden death occurred
last week, and in explaining his reason
for so doing, says "the appointment was
made strictly on merit." Was the ap
pointment of George L. Farley as county
superintendent of schools of Cass county,
"made strictly on merit?" And this in
face of the fact that there were three
practical and experienced teachers ap
plicants for the vacancy, and at the time
the appointment was made Farley did
not even possess a teacher's certificate
of any grade. How do the voters of
Cass county like this manner of doing
business? Vote for Miss Mary E. Fos
ter, whom you know possesses a life cer
tificate, granted by the highest school
authorities of the state.
The democratic county ticket is one
that any voter can support with a clear
conscience that he has done the prop
er caper. It was selected because of
the excellent qualities of every person
whose name appears thereon. No name
appears, there who has been an accupant
of the court house for 14 years, and who
desires to extend his pap-sucking to that
of IS years. Can you remember, voter,
such a precedent in the history of Cass
county? Generally an official is willing
to relinquish his claim for a continuance
in office after suckling the public teat
for six and eight, and why should not
the present district clerk be satisfied
with what the voters of the county
have already done for him 14 years in
office. He will next want a life tenure,
How to Vote.
Each voter should first put a cross in
his party cidcle- This will insure your
vote for each candidate on your state,
county and precinct ticket and thereby
aid your friends. In this county we
have a splended county ticket and there
is no reason why each candidate "on our
ticket should not haye your vote. If
you feel that you must vote you must
vote for some candidate on the , other
ticket, vote in your party circle as above
stated, and then put a cross in the
square opposite the name of such candi
date. This will be counted as a straight
ticket except for one candibate.
Judge H. D. Travis.
It is with pleasure The News endorses
the candidacy of Judge H. D. Travis
for judge of this judicial district.
The reason we do so is because we are
acquainted with the gentleman and know
his standing in the community where he
resides. Cass county has never failed
to elect him when he has been a candi
date, and he could have been the nomi
nee for county judge this year had he
so desired, but he has held the office
for four years and he declined to again
be a candidate. It was at the earnest
solicitation of Otoe county friends that
he consented to be a candidate for dist
Mr. Travis is one of the ablest law
yers in the district, is respected by all,
is not in any manner a fanatic, is level
headed and has the best of judgement.
If the people of this district want a
judge who will do justice to all and
reflect credit not only to himself but
all who gave him their endorsement
they will vote for Judge Travis. If you
do not like that kind of a man then
vote against him. Nebraska City
