Kvkky democrat and every populist,
who are in favor of the nomination and
election of W. J. Uryan to the presi
dency of the United States, should or
ganize and stay organized until the
close of the campaign. It is time that
the people of this country should awaken
to this fact.
Thk fact that Mayor Gering of Platts
mouth was endorsed as a delegate to
the national convention of the M. W.
A. at Peoria. Illinois, without any soli
citing on his part shows what a host of
warm friends he has who wish him
success, and is sure to be appreciated
by Mayor Gering. Havelock Times.

K'on just the same. His appointment,
however, is not satisfactory to many
republicans, and the Union Labor peo
ple opposed him from the jump and ic
vill be hard to reconcile them to the
extent of voting the republican ticket
in Nebraska this fall.
Koosevelt is preparing another mes
sage. Every time he sends a message
to congress it is an endorsement of
Hryan principles. Read his last mes
sage and you will find many important
issues that have been advocated by
Uryan for the past twelve or more
years. With Bryan the democratic
tnnrinee for president the whole nation
will applaud and he will be elected presi
dent. If W. J. Bryan can be so easily beat
en for president, providing he is the
n m'.nee of the democrats, why are the
republicans so anxious to prevent his
11 munition? We believe Bryan will be
a formidable candidate this year. Many
j?op!e have become disgusted with

The newspaper publisher who feels
sore over new postoffice law in relation
to deliquent subscribers, should not be
in the newspaper business at all. It is
just what every energetic publisher
wants. Make your papers so that the
jop!e want them make them newsy
ar.d bright, and you can bet your bot
tom dollar that the new law will have
no effect in the way of securing patrons.
Tli 2 people will appreciate a good, live
paper, and the law is just what all
livi newspaper publishers want. It is
in reality a protection to such papers.
Saturday is when the democratic
county convention meets in Plattsmouth
for the purpose of selecting delegates to
the state convention. From present
indications every precinct and ward in
Ihe county will be represented. Cass
county is entitled to 19 delegates, and
we hope to see every section of the
county represented on that delegation,
and every- man chosen as a delegate
should pledge himself to attend. The
state convention will meet in Omaha on
Thursday, March 5. and will be one of
the largest political conventions ever
heli in Nebraska.
The New York World while claiming
to be a democratic paper keeps up its
firing at W. J. Bryan. Old Joe Pulitzer
owns the World, and is its editor. He

he owned the St. Louis Post Dispatch

welcomed the day of his departure from

in Congress. The World is a republican

Mr. Pollard will not have as smooth

The federal grafters will put up a

no use talking about a third term for

under no circumstances would he accept

that Nebraska must go for Taft. This

Ten years ago last Sunday morning
the American people were startled to
read in the newspapers that the battle
ship Maine had been blown up in the
harbor of Havana the night before with
the loss of 2G) lives. Although themes
sage of its captain, Si;sbee, asked that
judgment be suspended until the facts
were learned, the event so aroused pop
ular passion as to make war with Spain
inevitable. The war, with the prestige
it gave the American navy in the eyes
of Europe, and with the accompanying
acquisition of the Philippines, greatly
extended national interests and brought
the United Statesjdefinitely into the
council of world powers. The ten years
following the destruction of the Maine
have brought greater changes to the
country than the previous twenty.
The Lincoln News says: "Those
timid souls who have been fearful lest
the strife between Mr. Hammond and
Mr. Rose as to which should draw the
salary of internal revenue collector
would rip the republican party wide
open, will doubtless be calm again. Mr
Hammond has been named, and the
friends of Mr. Rose are looking about
for something equally as good for him.
Just why the party" If everything
is so calm, why are the leaders of the
republican party "looking about for
something equally as good" for Mr.
Rose? Is this man Rose any better than
many republicans in the state, that a
place should be provided for him to ease
his disappointed, and draw a good fat
salary for a very little work? Rose
needs pacifying, and a little piece of ;
the graft pie is the only thing that will
do the work.
Governor Sheldon is receiving con-
siderable criticism for having said in ;
a public speech that "no matter whom j
the republicans nominated he would be '
better qualified to administer the affairs !
of our country than any0ne the demo- j
crats might name." If the governor J

New Party Planned.
In all seriousness, however, there is
talk of a new partisan alignment. The
anti-Roosevelt republicans are discuss
ing ways and means to head him off.
One of the ways in their present plans
is to make a split in republican ranks
similar to the one which lopped the
conservatives votes from the democratic
party in 1896. The reactionaries pro
pose "a republican Palmer-Bucker
ticket." Foraker and Fairbanks are
names suggested for leaders of such a

CATARRH of the respiratory organs
Is a common ailment in Canada for
at least two-thirds of the year.
This condition is no doubt caused by
the long, severe winters experienced in
this part of the continent.
Therefore, when Pernna was discov
ered by Canadian people to be a reliable
remedy for these catarrhal diseases, it
at once became a popular medicine, not
only among individuals and in families,
but in the great hospitals, where it was
used as a preventative and relief in
hundreds of cases.
These institutions do not hesitate to
give their endorsement of the remedy
which has been so helpful in the treat
ment of their poor and sick.

On account of the fact that I have no
faith in the good results that follow the
free distribution of garden seeds, I
shall pursue the same course this year
that I did last and only send garden
seed to those who request them. I have
exchanged ten thousand packages of
garden seed for a like a amount of
flower seed, which I desire to distribute
among the public schools of my district.
I have reserved enough garden seed,
however, to supply everyone with them
that makes request for the same.
I have succeeded in increasing the
amount of money appropriated for the
Agricultural Department so that an ex
pert will go to Nebraska from the U. S.
Department of Agriculture, who, in '
conjunction with the State Experiment
Station, will advise, so far as possible,
with any farmer in the state who de
sires to become familar with the most
advanced methods of selecting his seed
and the cultivation of his crops. At my
suggestion this work was carried on last
year to a limited extent. Wherever
this was done there a material increase
in the yield. Any farmer who desires

the proper development of man, as de

in the line of business, his sociable side
and religious side, and that either, to
the exclusion of the other, would make
him lop-sided. For illustration the
