asking that the matter be looked into.

"If we cannot elect Bryan, we can
elect no one," says the Louisville
Courier-Journal. "Mr. Bryan cannot
be elected," said the New York World.
"Bryan, if nominated at Denver, is
scheduled for certain defeat," says the

beaten before the polling places are
opened," says the Brooklyn Eagle.

the deceit of the Bee is very percepti

these papers ever supported Mr. Bryan,

not make quotations from reliable demo

The suit brought by the agent of the
Burlington, to oust the present mayor
of the city of PlaUsmouth, and seat
himself in a position to which he was
not elected, and never could be elected,
may involve some of those who W. L.
Pickett insisted on voting for him. Such
persons overlooked the fact that the
"official ballot" is, in law, a legal pa
per or document, and any changes there
on, not authorized by law, may involve
the persons making such changes in
prosecutions under the criminal law.
It is not only the la .v but common
sense that any writing or marks made
upon the official ballot, not authorized
by law, after the voter receives the
ballot from the judge of election, de
stroys the official character of the bal
lot; and when a voter attempts to vote
such changed ballot, it seems that
such voter may then be prosecuted un
der the following statute: Cobbey's
Annotated Statutes, 1907, section 5382,
among other things provides as follows:
"Any person who shall attempt to
vote any other than the official ballot,
lawfully obtained, shall be
deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and
fined not less than fifty ($50) dollars
nor more than three hundred ($300) dol
lars, or be imprisoned in the county jail
not less than three months nor more
than one year, or both such fine and
imprisonment. ' '
The Journal very much regrets that a
number of voters at the recent election
in the city were induced and persuaded
to write or have written on the official
ballot, after the same was received
from the proper officer, the title of cer
tain offices and candidates therefor, and
attempting and actually voting such
changed ballots, in violation of the
above law, and thus liable to prosecu
tion under the provisions of the law

Why People Trade in Omaha.
There is not a town in the state of
Nebraska that does less advertising
and reaching out after trade than

page advertisement that appear offer
ing special bargains for Monday, and
then no one will wonder. People wil
go where bargains are offered. Let
Plattsmoutn merchants do a little of
this kind of work and the people of
Plattsmouth and vicinity can be brought
to a realization of the fact that bar
gains can be had in this city as well as
