Anton Koufcek Returns From a Plcas
ant Trip Out in the Slate.
Anton H. Koubek who has been
taking a vacation for several days
returned to the city this morning.
Mr. Koubek during his sojourn vis
ited at Creighton, Beemer and Hoop
en, Neb., with many Plattsmouth peo
ple who live In the vicinity of those
flourishing towns. At Creighton he
had a particularly fine time being
the guest, of Henry Falter and
Charles Teipel and having royal
treatment accorded him. He was
greatly pleased with the country
about Creighton although right
around that place it was too sandy
(or good soil". Within a few miles
it was very fine, however. While
at Creighton Chief Koubek met Chief
Pratten of the local fire department
and received some valuable informa
tion concerning their association.'
It was a member of the State
Volunteer . Firemen's Association,
with a membership of thirty-four
men all equipped with uniforms. The
equipment consists of one hook and
ladder truck, one hundred feet of
ladders, two hose carts, two thous
and feet of hose, a 1,200 pound fire
bell on a steel tower and eighteen
rubber coats. . The association has
J400 in Us treasury. Chief Koubek
was obliged to admit to Chief Prat
ten that the local department did not
belong to the state association but
depended upon the council for equip
ment. Accoring to Chief Pratten
there is a big advantage In belong
ing to the state association as the
law provides a fund for the benefit
of the several companies who are
members. The Creighton depart-,
ment has charge of a Fourth of July
celebration and their chief states he
has collected $1,450 for that pur
pose, much more than this city con
tributes. It will be noted Creighton
has considerable more hose than
this city, although It Is only about
one fourth as large. While at
Creighton Mr. Koubek in company
with Charles Teipel attended a gen
uine country dance and danced with
all the rosy cheeked girls in the
country. The admission to these
dances is 25 and 50 cents and all
you want to eat and drink Is thrown
in. In addition to meeting Messrs
Falter and Teipel, Mr. Koubek met
with George Koehnke and family,
Charles Wllklns, his father and fam
ily. Ed. Baker and John Wagner.
At Beemer he made a visit with Gus
Peln and had a good time.
Gus is doing nicely in Beemer. At
Hooper he visited with Richard Hale
who Is working for the C. & N. W
in that place as operator. He at
tended a couple of good ball games,
Hooper and the Oxford Indians, the
latter winning the first 4 to 1 in ten
innings. The gate receipts for the
first game was$54 and for the second
$37. Hooper pays a pitcher $60 per
month, the citizens, contributing $80
per month to keep the team up. Mr.
Hale expects to move his family to
Hooper In about a week.
On Saturday afternoon next Con
rad Schlater will give the children
who take part in the Mother Goose
entertainment at the Parmele the

ing home In the northeast part of
the city. Refresments will be ser

excrtlenp governor. It will be -readily

ger can use the pen with as bril
liant effect es he can the tongue.
Among the many interesting mat
ters he touches, v.e clip the follow
ing: "I am glad to sent to the Nation
al Monthly a message from Nebras
ka, that Democracy has "made
good" In this State. We were given
control of State affairs, upon the
promise that we would enact certain
specific laws believed by our citi
zens to be fundamental to further
development 'and progress, and ne
cessary to promote and preserve our
prosperity. The Democratls Legis
lature, .which has Just adjourned,
has i enacted, and a Democratic Gov
ernor has signed, every law which
we pledged to the people we wouid
stamp Upon the statute books of our
State. We have given the people of
Nebraska a guaranty of deposits law
which will make the money of the
people as safe In our home banks
as it would be in a postal savings
bank, and yet keep their funds In
the communities where they are ac
cumulated ' and available for the
business to which they rightfully be
long. "We have provided Tor the ap
praisement and valuation of the
railroads of our State as a basis for
taxation and making ot rates. We
have enacted a law which places In
the hands of the Railway Commis
sion the right to prohibit the Is
suance of etock, bonds or mortgages
or other evidences of debt in ex
cess of the actual valuation of the
property of the corporations. By the
enactment of these last two men
tioned laws, we have laid the found
ation for the proper protection of
the people's rights In dealing with
public service corporations.
"The great agricultural States of
the Central West, -if they could but
put aside inherited political pre
judices and become in reality Demo
cratic because the material interests
of their people would be promoted
by putting Into practice the politi
cal policies of that party. Their
people are continually preyed upon
by trusts and monopolies built up
and maintained under the fostering
care of a Republican legislature. A
Republican tariff reaches down Into
our pockets and levies tribute and
toll upon us like a highwayman up
on the road; every time we buy a
foot of lumber with which to build
a house or barn the nails
with which to fasten them
together, or the machinery with
which we harvest our grain, or the
twine with which we bind it, the
sugar with which we sweeten our
coffee, the clothes upon our backs,
the shoes upon our children's feet,
the harness with which we
work our horses, and any
useful thing which we buy, need
or consume, and the tariff is to us
the very apothebsls of special privi
lege and the enthronement of pri
"I can understand why monopo
listic corporations remain Republican
In spite of any condition that can
confront the rest of the country, be
cause Republican legislation for fifty
years has been assisting them to
prey upon the public. But why
should the people of the Nation gen
erally continue to support a party's
policies that places unfair burdens
upon us all? . We have a saying in
this State, "Stand up for Nebraska,"
and I want to urge upon the Demo
crats everywhere to stand up for
the people and make our party the
rallying point for all men who stand
for good government.
"The Democratic party never had
a better platform or braver or abler
candidate than in the last National
campaign. Though defeated we will
still fight on, If It takes a generation
to finally win. Nothing that Is
worth having Is ever achieved in
this world except by hard fighting
and generally after' successive de
feats. Truth does not always win,
It only triumphs In the end. The
most priceless political thing that
belongs to the American people to
day Is constitutional liberty and re
presentative 'government; the right
to elect our legislators who make
the laws for ns, to elect our Judges,
who must Interpret the law for us
and our executives who must en
force the laws for us. But Ameri
cans did not win this privilege for
themselves; It was a gift to us from
our Mother Country of Knglnnd.nml
Englishmen did not win It enslly,
they achieved It only after fighting
more than three hundred years
against the power and prerogative
of King and Princes. Men gave
their lives for It, and Kings and
Princes thought that It was dend.
but It lived on, and finally after
many centuries It hns come down to
us as the bulwark and corner stone
of American liberty.
"Go back for a moment to the be
ginning of the strugglo for represen
tative government. When itout old
Simon De Montfort, the first real
fighter for constitutional liberty

him said to him, "My Lord, the
King's men outnumber us ten to one;
nothing is left to us but to surrender
or to fiee;" but De montfort saij to
him "Not bo, one other thing we can
do today as Englishmen for Eng
land and that is to die like men up
on the field of battle." And as he
laid his lance In rest to make his
last charge before he drove spurs
into hts horse's flanks he rose In
his stirrups and called to the little
band of faithful knights about him,
"Gentlemen, command your souls to
God, for our bodies are the ene
mies," and so he died fighting glor
iously that you and I and every man
who speaks the Saxon tongue might
have a representative form of gov
ernment, might be free. The names
of those who fell upon that fatal
field are lost amil the oblivion of
seven hundred years, but the name
of him who fell in behalf of con
stitutional liberty and representa
tive government will live until the
English language Is forgotten. And
so with the Democratic party.
Though continually defeated for
more than a half a century and
many champions of the people have
fallen fighting under her flag, yet
the party will fight on and her fight
ing sons will remember that a vic
tory upon the side of progress and

Another Hall Game.
Another good ball game Is prom
ised the people of Plattsmouth next
Saturday afternoon when Manager
Warren's men tie up with the Roy
al Achates of Omaha. On the
strength of past performances the
Plattsmouth team ought to "eat 'em
alive" but they may be somewhat
Jolted In their calculations. The
local team Is playing fast ball right
now and If they keep up practicing
and hit the ball like they did in
the game with the Lees and the
C. H. S. teams, they will put it onto
the best of the visitors. Mason is
also pitching good ball now and If
he continues to Improve as he has
since the season opened he will be
a sure comer. The Royal Achates
have played here several times and
usually they have left the locals with
the worst end of the argument but
their measure will surely be taken
on Saturday. The batting order
which the team used last Saturday
was an effective one and there is
every reason to believe It will prove
equally effective against the visitors'
pitchers. There should be a good
crowd present as the local team Is
playing as good ball as any In this

In sickness, If a certain hidden
nerve goes wrong, then the organ
that that nerve controrls will also
surely fail. It may be a stomach
nerve, or it may have given strength
and supoprt to the heart or kidneys.
It was Dr. Shoop that first pointed
to this vital truth. Dr.
Shocp's restorative was not made to
dose the stomach or to temporarily
stimulate the heart or kidneys. That
old fashioned method Is all wrong.

Every Citizen Should Support the

The work of the Plattsmouth
Telephone Company la putting In
new cables and overhauling their
system Is being pushed forward to
completion as rapidly as possible and
soon their lines throughout the city
will be in good shape. They have
a great many orders on hand for
new phones to be put into places
after July first when the new rates
of the Nebraska Company go into
effect and they will find It diffi
cult to keep pace with the demand
for Instruments. Owing to the fact
that they are maintaining their old
rates, the ones they established
when they first organized their com
pany, and In addition are giving
the people the best of service and

are being heavily taxed. As has
