ITY COtlES FROM
Campaign Figures of Republicans Do
Not Give Away the Faults
in Their System
The keynote speech by the temporary
chairman of the Chicago convention
was replete with figures telling what a
great country the United States have
become since the Republican party held
its first national convention. Mr. Bur
rows is especially eloquent in his use of
the addition tables and of the multiplic
ation tables to exhibit the great things
the American people have done for
themselves under the beign rule of
Our flocks and heids have increased.
Our population has grown. Our crops
bring more money than ever before.
Our miners and prospectors are dig
ging more gold, and mills are spinning
more cotton, we are bringing to the
surface more coal and iron ore and so
forth, and so forth.
Taken simply as a statistical exhibit
of the results of productive energies
that have been operating in the United
States during recent years Mr. Bur
rows's figures do not lie. In. common
with the rest of the world the United
States have during the past ten years
had an almost unexampled prosperity.
There has been a series of good crops
and the world has wanted our farm
products at good prices. The farmers
have, through the bounty of Providence
and their own steady industry, made
prosperity for the merchant and the
manufacturer, as well as for them
selves. But when Mr. Burrows's figures are
perverted into a claim that the Repub
lican party has done all this they be
come as mendacious as figures always
are when misused. They are, besides,
mendacious in their omission to tell the
They do not explain why amidst all
this bounteous prosperity the cost of
living was so increased that the wage
earner received no net benefit, even
though his pay was nominally greater.
The Republican campaign figures are
further mendacious in omitting all
mention of the hundreds of millions of
dollars taken from the pockets of all
onditions of people by monopoly tariff
whose beneficiaries have, by increased
prices, taxed the general prosperity all
that it could bear.
The campaign figures do not give
away the fault3 in the Republican sys
tem by which in the midst of all the
prosperity it bestowed there was a sud
den halt and a breakdown which threw
thousands of people out of work, thus
depriving them of their fair share of
the prosperity which nothing can over
throw. The farmers and other producers of
this country know well where the pros
perity they get comes from. What
they are asking Republican arithmetic
men to explain, especially in the North
west, is why they have not been suffer
ed to keep for themselves a larger
share of the good things which they
DIED IN LIN
Mrs, Frank Palmer, Formerly
a Citizen of Plattsmouth.
Mrs. Frank Palmer, who has been
sick for some time, passed away yester
day afternoon at her late home in the
capital city. Mrs. Palmer is well known
in this city, having lived here for a
number of years. Mrs. Palmer is a
cousin of the Dovey boys, her name be
ing Miss Eleanor Dovey originally, and

in Knightstown, Ind., to which place
the remains will be taken this evening
on the Burlington train No. 2. George
E. Dovey and daughter, Ella Margaret,
departed for Lincoln and will accom
pany Mr. Palmer with the remains this
far on their way east. The funeral will
probably occur tomorrow afternoon.
Adjusting Insnrance Claims,
In the storm of a few days since, 4
head of cattle of August Wendt, near
Murdock, were killed by lighting.
They were insured in the Cass County
Mutual Insurance company and yester
day the company adjusted and paid the
loss. Secretary J. P. Falter drew the
check for the same.l
The house of W. L. Thomas, which
had a chimney "blown down and some
windows blown in, was insured in the
State Tornado Insurance company, of
which Mr. Falter is the representative
here. This also was settled yesterday.
Will Go in Business in Iowa.

mistake sometime since and attached
the name of George Wiles to a check
with which he tried to make a purchase,
and for this he has been boarding with
landlord Manspeaker. Today he shook
the dust of Plattsmouth from his feet
and departed for Pacific Junction.
Is Able to Transact Business.
Our old friend, J. W. Pitman", one of
the most substantial farmers in lower
Cass county, was up from , his home,
near Union, today, and made this office
a brief, but pleasant visit. Mr. Pit
man has been ailing for some time,
but has always managed to get
around where business calls him. He
was at the court house today to bid on

TO THE JUDGE
He Wants to Be Released in
Time to Celebrate
, Chas. I, Webb, the particularly hard
customer, who on the very day of his
sentance was out for a former misde
meanor, and within three hours stole a
pair of shoes of John Gebhart, for which
he got thirty days, the last ten on bread
and water, and the payment of the cost
of the prosecution, wrote Judge Archer
a letter today. He says that he has
not been notified as to the extent
of his sentence, but understands it
to be thirty days, and if that were so,
it would expire on July third, but if
the payment of the cost was included it
would not terminate until the 5th of
July, which would carry him over the
He also says that he is a patriotic
American citizen and that he wishes to
get out to celebrate the Fourth. Incident
ally, if allowed to get out at this time,
his avocation might prove exceedingly
profitable as it would place him in a
well crowded city, with the unsuspect
ing citizens at his mercy or lack of it.
His case can olny be reached by the
chief executive of the state, Govornor
Sheldon, and it is doubtful if he would
exercise (executive clemency. With the
Fourth of July fairly over, and the last
few days on bread and water, will pro
bably be interpreted by the Wiley Webb
as a very emphatic invitation to move
on and one which he can hardly help
