We often ask ourselves how It is
that some persons do not feel well
most of the time, while others resist
all diseases. It Is not natural that
those being able to preserve their
sterngth are not liable to fall vie
tiins to ordinary ailments. Whenever
you will notice that your strength Is
declining, take Trlner's American
Elixir of Bitter Wine, and use It un
til your body regalnes the former
strength. This remedy acts directly
upon the digestive organs, and makes
them capable to accept ami digest
any food. If your appetite Is not as
good as usual, nnd If you are weak,
easily tlred-out, have difficulties nf
ier eating, Headache, atulence or
constipation, use Trlner's American
Lllxlr of Bitter Wine. It brings
s(eey relief. At drugstores. Jos

ly attended, nearly every county lnior reproach, presented itself more
the state being represented, and the i forcefully than it does now.
deliberations were harmonious and j -e urge the people of this com-
enthusiastic throughout. The fol-
lowing Is the platform adopted:
We, the Democrats of Nebraska iu
state convention assembled, reaf
firm our faith In and pledge our
loyalty to the principles of our party
as set forth in the platform adopted
by the Democratic convention of
We denounce the Republican tar
iff bill as a shameless consummation
of the fraud deliberately planned by
the Republican leaders when they
promised revision instead of reduc
tion; and we call attention to the
fact that It confesses the truth of
all that the Democrats have charged
as to the system.
We call special attention to the
fact that one plank contained In both
the Democratic state and national
platforms for 190S, namely, the
plank demanding a constitutional
amendment specifically endorsing the
Income tax, has since been accepted
by a Republican president, senate
and house of representatives and
that such amendment has been sub
mitted to the states for ratification.
We pledge the Democratic party
In Nebraska to assist In securing
ratification of that amendment and
to that end we a?k Governor Shal
lenberger to call a special session of
the legislature at an early day, that
Nebraska, a pioneer In the advocacy
of an Income tax, may have the
honor of being the first state to
ratify the amendment.
We particularly endorse the pro
position that the United States sena
tors be elected by popular vote.
Present day conditions in the sen
ate emphasize the importance of this
Believing that the people have a
right to what they want In govern
ment we favor the submission at the
next session of the legislature of a
constitutional amendment providing
for the initiative and referendum.
Reasserting our purpose to give
the people of the state of Nebras
ka a guarantee of bank deposits law,
we call attention to the fact that
suspension of that law by the federal
court emphosizes the position taken
by the Democratic party of Nebras
ka In its 1908 platform when it fav
ored the enactment of such laws as
may be necessary to compel corpora
tions to submit their legal disputes
to the courts of the states In which
they do business before taking an
appeal to the United States courts.
We endorse the successful busi
ness administration of the Democra
tic governor and commend the gov
ernor and a Democratic legislature
for enactment of specific Democra
tic platform pledges Into law.
The Democracy of Nebraska, how
ever, directs the attention of all
good citizens to the fact that the
state election to be held this fall Is
for the purpose of choosing three
Judges of the supreme court and
three regents of the university. No
other offices are Involved.
The Democratic party through Its
legislature and governor sought to
lift these positions of great trust
and dignity out of the embroilment
of partisan politics, to take them
out of the hands of professional poli
ticians, to raise them above the
reach of the Interests such politi
cians servo and place them perman
ently and securely on a non-partisan
basis. But the Republican party held
otherwise. It assailed the non-partisan
Through Its state organization It
arranged surreptitiously for a palpa
bly Insincere but successful attack
We submit that this presents an
Issue of great and far reaching Im
portance. We are coming to be
more nnd more a people governed
by our courts. The courts are the
bulwarks of our liberties, as well as
the harbor to which special privi

ynonwealth to take this question
home with theta. We urge upon
I them that the Issue In the state
election is one, not of party or of
platform, but of men.
vVe urge all Nebraskans, In voting
for supreme Judges and for regents
to lay aside party prejudice and ties.
We hope no Democrat will vote for
a candidate for either of these of
fices merely because the candidate is
a Democrat, and that no Republi
can will vote for such a candidate
because he Is a Republican. We urge
each and every voter of all parties
to vote for the man when he goes
to the box this fall, and not for
the party label.
Resolved that we urge the Demo
cratic members of congress and
those from Nebraska, especially to
use their best efforts to secure as
speedy a completion as possible of
the government ditch project now,
but partly completed in western Ne
braska, assuring those settlers who
have homesteaded lands under said
project that the government v.-ill
keep good faith with them and that
Tims. Bryan Still Alive.
Proceeding from information fur
nished by personal friends, who
claimed to know what they were
talking about, the Journal sometime
ago printed a notice of the death
of Thomas Bryan, an aged soldier
of this city, who Is now with his
daughter at Pilger, Neb. It has been
found that the Information was er
roneuous and that Mr. Bryan Is still
in the land of the living. The aged
gentleman is in a precarious state of
health but far from being dead nnd
desires his many friends to know
this. The parties furnishing the In
formation either were afflicted with
an Insane desire to forestall d?ath
or a bad case of spirits fermentl as
there seems to have been no tangible
ground save a lurid Imagination on
which to hang their weird tale. Of
late, this community has been afflict
ed with a number of people who have
recklessly disposed of 111 persons In
advance of actual demise, much to
the regret and disgust of said par
ties. A little more adherence to
facts when circulating these reports
will add greatly to the reputation
of the parties for truth and vera
Served as 'coffee, the new coffee
substitute known to grocers every

a grain of real coffee In It, either.
Pure healthful toasted grains, malt,

blended as to give a wonderfully sat

No Doubt of It Being a Most
Positive announcement can be
made now- that the big fall festival
the first annual event cf the kind
to be given here is absolutely as
sured. A meeting was held last night
by the promoters of the project
which made the big event acertalnty.
The money which was needed for It
was subscribed easily and the com
mittee Is more tnan pleased over the
spirit In which It was given.
The big affair will take up the en
tire week, commencing on Wednes
day, September 1, and will end on
Monday, September 6, Labor day,
with a tremendous blaze of glory.
It Is now up to the committee hav
ing In charge the celebration to get
busy and perfect the details and ar
range for a program which every
body for miles around will be Justi
fied in coming to see.
When the project was first sprung
many were afraid that It was too
ambItlou3; that It would take too
much money; that it would be too
long drawn out, and what not. But
when they commenced to realize the
scope of the festival, what It was In
tended to do for Flattsmouth, they
changed all this and came to the
conclusion that It was Just what was
They found that the farmers were
enthusiastic over the Live Stock day.
That all they wanted was arrange
ments made to give them a place to
show their stock and they would do
the rest. Appropriate prizes, rib
bons, etc., will be given and a proper
place arranged where the animals
can be shown. As there are many
line herds In this Immediate vicinity,
the display will be well worth look
ing at. It Is not necessary to con
fine the display to one day. The big
affair will be on for six days all told,
and on every one of them the cattle
could be shown. Space forbids the
names of owners of fine herds at this
time, but it will be given later. The
display will not be confined to
herds from the Immediate vicinity,
but several from distances will ho on
On Musical day there will be one of
the finest programs arranged which
this section has ever seen. In chorus
work there will be a large number
of selections given by trained sing
ers under competent leadership.
Hand music will also bo featured and
bands from this city and surround
ing towns will be asked to partici
pate and without a doubt every one
will be here. Cass county boasts good
bands and In a hand contest there w ill
be many entries. One feature which
will be put on If arrangements can
be made will be songs In foreign
tongues, Btich as German, Ilohemlan,
Scandinavian, and the like. There
are many singers of foreign birth in
this community, and It would be a
delicate compliment to them to do
Old Settlers' dny will be one on
which the early pioneers of Nebras
ka will be given the liberty of the
city, and every effort made to make
them enjoy themselves. For this
day addresses by pioneers the men
who made Nebrnska will be a fea
ture. From many miles the old
settlers will gather and hold a real
old-time reunion. One feature will

try this morning to take the early

county peoplo will be asked to re
turn here and visit old scenes. Old
Settlers' day will be the day which
they will enjoy above all others.
There will be one day for sports
and games, winding up with a grand
masked carnival at night Thla day
will be for old and young alike and
the committee which will have it In
charge will make It one of the spec
tacular features of the big event.
There will be ball games, horse
races, motor boat races on the river,
running and sprinting races, and It
any game escape the committee they
want to be shown. At night will be
a great masked carnival, when the
streets will be given over to merry
makers and a glorious time will be
held. People en masque will throng
the streets and pranks of all kinds
will mark this evening. It will pay
you to enjoy the fun.
Ilutiington day, which It Is pro
posed to consolidate with Labor
day, will be a great, big day. On
that day there will be no work at
the shops and every- one will turn
out to make the day the climax of a
big week. A big labor parade Is on
the tapis for that day, and It will put
all former demonstrations In the
shade. The management cf the Bur
lington shops have assured the com
mittee that everything they can do
to make the occasion a grand suc
cess will be done, so that In itself
assures Plattsmouth of a big day on
Labor day. "
A Merchants' day Is also to be
had, and on this day eacli merchant
will be asked to decorate his store
and to present his wares In the most
effective manner. ' For this a prize
will be given, and the one winning
will have to hnve some mighty fine
This Is but a very, very brief out
line of what the committee proposes
to do. It does not Include the base
ball tournament, at which teams
from the surrounding towns will
participate. It does not Include the
permanent attractions which will
show every day. It does not Include
the free attractions which will be
giving daring, thrilling, amusing
and Interesting exhibitions on every
street corner. For all these things
will be here, and If one conies to
Plattsmouth the week of September
1 to 6, and then goes away disap
pointed It will be his own fault. Re

The committee Is especially de
sirous of thanking the enterprising
business men and citizens who so
cheerfully took up the task of mak
ing the affair a success and contrib

under way. The committee now
feels that It can say to the world
that PlattHtnouth Is united and In

Street Cleaning is Ilootnliig.
The street cleaning movement re
ceived quite an additional Impetus
this morning, a nu timer of firms
joining In the movement for a clean
er street and a more tidy city. At
the present rate of progress It will
not be long before every business
house on Main street will bo lined
up for the movement. It Is a highly
commendable one and reflects much
credit upon the merchants partici
pating in It. The result of these
sweepings will be to make Main
street as clean as a pin, and after a
week or so of the work it Is going
to bo n comparatively easy task to
keep It that way. in addition It also
aids tho city quite largely In reduc
ing the cost of cleaning streets and
amounts virtually to a public dona
tion. Among the first which hnve lined
up for tint movement since It was
inaugurated, In addition to those
heretofore mentioned, are .1. V. Eg
