The Hughes forces go right on estab lishing headquarters just as if President Itosevelt and his office-holders didn't own a majority of the Chicago delegates. A MAN in Michigan has been arrested for six murders. There is a demand for a return to the comparatively safe and sane days when the murderer killed one man and then quit. The President's latest bill is a demand "for immediate action in revising the tariff at the hands of the congress elect cd next fall." This is genuine casuisti cal hocus pocus for you. June roses and June brides are two of the loveliest things which go to make bright and glad this madly rushing life. and to which no man with a spark of manhood in him can be wholly indiffer ent. Subtract 850 from 1,026 and you will jjet the number of millions of dollars of deficit the national treasury probably will show for the fiscal year begining July 1, 1908. Among other things, next year promises to be a bumper one for bond issues. Although fourteen men swore that they had received bribes from Abe Ruef, six of the twelve jurymen held out for the acquittal of the former Frisco boss. It begins to look as if San Francisco doesn't want to be saved. A newly married man who is raising his first garden this year, wanting some seed potatoes, called at one of our groceries the other day and ask for a peck of "early risers." He wasdirect cd to the nearest drug store where it was discovered that it was "Early Ohios" he wanted. The gentleman bought a box of cigars to square him self. Suspicious Opposition President Roosevelt is an advocate of legislation providing for publicity i l re spect to campaign contributions. He has impressed upon congress in strong lan guage the neccesity for a law which will prevent the debauchery of the electorate. It is to be feared, however, that the president's party, as represented in con gress, is not eager for legislation which may cut down its campaign fund this year. In l0i President Roosevelt bit terly denounced Judge Parker, the demo cratic candidate for president, for assert ing that trusts and corporations were contributing to the republican cam paign fund. Not long after this Mr. Hughes, now governor of New York, acting as counsel for a committee of the legislature, brought out the fact that one insurance company in New York had given $50,000 to promote the election of Mr. Roosevelt and the republican ticket. Subsequently Mr. E. H. Harri man, whose relations with President Roosevelt were rather strained, an nounced that during the campaign of 1904 he was urged to. raise a certain amount for use in New York. Mr. Har riman stated that this sum was raised in good season, and that he was one of the contributors. Unless the republican majority in con gress passes a publicity bill before the close of the present session their party will be placed in an ugly position during the presidential campaign. The public or at least that part of it which be lieves ' 'the debauchery of the'electorate" to be a menace to our institutions and a crime against civilization will suspect that there is to be a large corruption fund this year for the purchase of votes tit 1 . a . w e ao not oeneve we oest element in the republican party desire to win elec tions by any methods except those which are hone3t and will bear the closest scrutiny. The influence of these ele ments should be brought to bear on re publican representatives and senators to secure early action on the publicity bilL The president's recommendations to the fifty-eighth and fifty-ninth con gresses have been practically unheeded by the republican majority in congress. It is true a committee of the house- did give hearings on the bill introduced by Represents tiveMcCall of Massachusetts. But there the matter ended. Although I President Roosevelt has spoken strongly ' on the subject, there is suspicious indif ference on the part of the republican congressmen. The democratic mianority is powerless to compel action, but if it had the support of one-fourth of the republican members of " the house it would be practicable to pass a publicity bill and place the issue squarely before the republican senators. The action of two republican members of tne house committee in filibustering and finally leaving the committee room -to prevent a favorable report on a publicity measure has a rather melancholy signifi cance. They may have desired to deprive the democrats on the committee of the political capital derivable from a report signed by a majority of demecrats. But the public will doubtless conclude that the purpose of the republican filibuster was to prevent any action whatever which will discourage campaign contri butions and interfere with the debauch ery of the electorate. Is the republican party willing to go into the presidential campaign this year as the advocate of unrestricted vote buying and corruption of the electorate? Now comes the National Manufactur er's association demanding the repeal of tariff on trust made gocds. Next. Republican congressmen are still standing pat for the trusts, the univer sal kick of the newspaper publishers about the tariff protecting the paper combine, notwithstanding. That sore place in the farmer's pocketbook marks the spot where Roose velt's big stick landed and it is written that the farmer doesn't forget. Every whack of the big stick makes thousands of votes for Bryan. The Washington Time3 states that "powerful forces hold Speaker Cannon responsible for the do-nothing congress, and have determined to oust him." The only way to defeat Cannon is to elect a democratic congress. Booker Washington advises the peo ple of his race not to worry about the national debt until they have paid the comer grocer. This is good advice for all colors, and will be especially endors ed by all corner grocers. The republicans have given up all hopes of defeating Mr. Bryan for the nomination at Denver with Gove: nor Johnson. Now the papers of that party have commenced publishing clippings from Tom Watson's Magazine. Tom, you remember, was nominated as a pop ulist by a gang of republicans in St. Louis some few weeks since and they have commenced to give him his orders. He is to tirade against Mr. Bryan and theyare to copy what he says. Sea! Judge Parker will head the New York delegation at Denver. This is said to be the first time a defeated candidate for president has been a delegate. If, as it is intimated, Judge Parker is going to Denver on purpose to assist in the defeat of Mr. Bryan, there is not one in the west who supported him four years ago but will wish they had never voted for him. No one could have given him a warmer support than Mr. Bryan, and in all his speaches in that campaign appealed to his friends to support Mr. Parker. At the "big conference" in Washing ton where governors, cabinet members, supreme judges, and multi-millionairs meet to talk things over, Mr. Bryan in troduced the following: "Resolved, That this conference expresses its deep regret that ex-President Cleveland is prevented by sickness from participat ing in this historic meeting and expresses its sincere wish for his speedy re covery." It was the nice thing for Mr. Bryan to do, and he can always be de pended upon to do the nice thing. The resolution was adopted by a standing vote. Hastings Democrat: The state Journal of Tuesday contains several col umns of names of Lincoln citizens who signed the various saloon petitions in that city. The list is printed as an ad vertisement, and the purpose of printing the list is to intimidate those who have signed. We say that is the purpose. Men sign such petitions well knowing what they do. They have a legal right to sign such petitions. Is the State Journal seeking to intimate anyone? What a christian spirit! If you don't come our way, we'll get after you in some other way. We'll seek to humil- iate you and your family, if you have one. We'll get after your business and ruin you if we can. That is the purpose hoped to be attained. The fact that it will fail in the end makes the attempt none the less shameful. The recent announcement of Hon. G. W.Berge, that he will be a candidate for governor subject to primaries of the democratic and populist parties, was ex pected. Mr. Berge made a magnificent race in 1904 and with such a showing he feels that he has a reason to believe himself a strong candidate. Personally, we entertain a very high opinion of Mr. Berge, but we do not believe that he will demanded for the gubernatorial race this year. Hastings Democrat. Neither do we believe that Shallenberger or Dahlman will be demanded. The proper candidate fo"r the democrats this year is the present mayor of Lincoln, Frank W. Brown. If he is nominated he" wilPbe elected as sure as election day rolls round. Our friend Huckins, of the Lincoln Herald, replies to theJournal's article of a few days since in reference to the es tablishment of a democratic daily paper inLincoln,and in a way throws cold water on the proposition. We have not bunch of coin to invest in such an enter prise, but if we did have we would jump at the proposition of establishing such a paper at the state capital, believing that such an enterprise would, from the start, receive a living support. The writer has established a large number of papers in his career and knows what it takes to do so grit and energy, We still cling to- the ' idea that if the proper effort is made, and it is not going to take any such amount of coin as the Herald intimates it will, and the demo crats of the state see that it is controlled by men who possess the ability and the hustling qualities, they will rally to its support in such a way as to make it a success. A NOBLE LADY PASSES AWAY Mrs. J. M. Stone Died at Her Home in Nehawka Satur day Evening. The Journal is pained to chronicle the death of one of the best of mothers, most dutiful and loving wives and best of neighbors in the person of Mrs. J. M. Stone of Nehawka, who passed away at the home of the family in that place on Saturday evening last. Mrs. Stone had been ailing for some weeks, and had been under the direct carejof a physi cian most of the time of her illness, and her death at this time was unlooked for and was occasioned from heart failure. Her husband, Mr. J. M. Stone, is one of the best known men in Cass ;county, while she also is survived by five child renone daughter and four sons L. E., who is a banker in Cherokee, Okla. ; Mr?. Katie West, wife of D. C. West, cashu r of the Nehawka bank; Charles S., late cashier of Murray State bank, and Bruce and Carl, farmers near Nehawka. Her death is a terrible blow to husband. daughter -and sons, who have the sin cere sympathy of the Journal. To the community her sudden death will also be keenly felt, as she was loved and most highly respected by all who knew her. The many friends of the family extend to them their deepest sympathy in this, the hour of their very saddest bereavement. The New Styles. A millinery salesman was in town the other day and kindly allowed the agricultural editor of the Journal to take a look at the new styles. His re port was like this: The new styles will be fully as pleasing as those of last year. The principal change noticed was that the front porch had been enlarged and an upper deck added to the roof. In many instances they will run in three story effects with the roof garden rich in foliage and evergreen. The bay window has been moved from the front to the left side, while the chimney has been done Gothic instead of Grecian design. There will be a lister furrow across the rear garden. Owing to the fact that no new colors have been discovered recently there will be no change in this particular; although an effort will be made to get at least a dozen different shades on each hat. The eave trough will sag over the left eye. Owing to the finan cial flurry the price will be from one to nine cents lower. This is supposed to be the latest accurate information on the new styles. Sweet potato plants at J. E.LeesIey'a at 25 cents per hundred. , Plattsmouth 'phone 253, black. Never Without Peruna There Are a Multitude of. People in the United States Who Have Been Restored to Health By the Use of Pe-ru-na. There are a multitude erf people la the United States who have been restored to health by the use of Peruna, There Is no use trying to deny this fact. As a rule, doctors dislike to admit ft. There la now and then a courageous-doctor who does admit it, how ever. In such cases Peruna is prescribed by the doctor himself. Even though the doctor suffers pecuniary loss by such a transaction his patient Is benefited, which ought to be the doctor's chief concern. We do not claim that doctors generally prescribe Peruna. But we do claim whenever Peruna is in telligently prescribed it rarely disappoints either the doctor or patient. MrJames P.Mckin. Nasal Catarrh aod Indlgetttoa.

My appetite waa poor, and I did not seem to relish my food. Indi gestion bothered me at tiroes, aleo. I was advised to take Peruna, and I took it as prescribed for a moath when my cure was almost complete. Today there is not a traoe of catarrh in my system, and I can say withot hesitation that Peruna cured roe." Kidney Disease. Mr. Samuel A. Paxfcon, 1118 Troost Ae., Kansas City, Mo., member I.O. O. P. and National Annuity Association, writes : I am a well man today, thanks to your splendid medicine, Peruna.
