The tlio coin it. slow an-1 it was late in the chief stirpils. was the victory of An-s night, or rat'.;er tally riornliir;, when drew J.,Snydir, Demoi 1 at;;; camli- j tho count was fii.ishe.l. date for register c f deeds. Si.ydcr ( TJio f cures on the state ticket ore ran like wild-lire In this eity, the pre-j very meager, ami U is haul to Fay cinet and several other adjoining pre- huw ,ju, supreme judges are running, ducts, while Daft, 1 1 i -s opponent, did j ncitui es from til" state at large arc not come up to expectations in the I likewise meager, and the result is country precincts. Snyder, who Is L morally s3 1 d to he in doubt, well known in this city, received ni s is always tin case, there -were very . ha'tid-onie vote in every ward j many disappointed friends ef the scv and his. home precinct, Fhutstuouth, ;ral candidates on the county ticket, roiled up a banner majority for bi:n, he heading the ticket there. ... 'Frank Schlater, Democratic candi date for re-election as treasurer also surprised the bathes in the size cf his 'majority, lie easily heading the ticket. Stark, who opposed him, fail ed to poll the vote hoped for by his friends in the west end of the coun 'ty, Schlater making unexpected gains and largely keeping his opponent from getting near the normal Re publican majority in that section. From unofficial returns Schlater's majority is placed . today at 607, something remarkable In this county and Indicative of his overwhelming popularity. He states that he is deep ly grateful to the public for their generous support. George hushinsky, who was mak ing the race for county clerk against I). C. Morgan, made an unexpectedly good showing In Plattsmouth, where he has lived for so many years and where he is well acquainted, cutting Morgan's majority to surprisingly small dimensions. A number of causes combined to accomplish this! result, which, however, was offset by Morgan's remarkable race in the country. The heavy Republican pre cincts of the country gave Morgan great support and saved his election by the margin of 89 votes. It was realized early in the day that hushin sky was running well here, and that the reverse was true in the country, but that either one would do as well as they did surprised acute observ- ers. County Judge Beeson secured a re election by a wide margin, Judge Archer failing to obtain support where It was expected and running poorly in Democratic precincts and wards. This fight was largely over looked in the fierce struggle for sev eral other offices and this 'doubtless assisted largely in making Beeson'i wiajorlty so large. Miss Mary Foster defeated E. E. dell, the Republican candidate by a handsome margin and secured a de served re-election. Miss Foster was strong in this city and In several of the country precincts, maintaining a handsome lead over Odell in several places where it was thought he might toake gains. Sheriff Qulnton was re-elceted for a third term by a large majority over Ed. S. Tutt, Democratic candidate. but still far under the majority which he received two years ago. As was the case with several other races a umber of causes entered into this fight and Qulnton made unexpected and unlooked for gains In Democratic wards and precincts, while losing some in Republican localities. Commissioner Friedrich was re elected by the narrow margin of 79 votes, making gains in the Demo ' ratlc wards and precincts and losing in the Republican. This race had heen figured out as a close one, but the Democrats at the close were con fident of victory for George P. Mel singer, their candidate, who had made a splendid fight. Several peculiar omblnatlons in different parts of the county helped Friedrich largely and, in fact, saved him. Coroner Clements secured a re election, defeating E. Ratnour by something close to the normal Re publican majority. On the lower of fices on the ticket there was little fight and the vote was nearly normal. . The tickets, as a general thing, were considerably scratched and this was not confined to any party, Re publican tickets carrying the names of several Democratic candidates, be ing encountered in practically all the wards and precincts, while Demo- he i Isl !,i..;k' t' Koch boarirg t in: ii s of .ui'IMr.ti s This made individual Ut publican were a!.--.') vimv mimerou especially in this city, where about all the candidates were well known and had many personal friends. The result was in doubt all day, as both parties had pood organizations and were working like beavers. To this fact the immense amount of scratch ing is laid. A3 a general proposition the Democrats seem better satisfied with the outcome than the Repub licans, the latter losing several can didates -whom they regarded as un usually strong,"especially hushinsky, for whom a desperate fight was made. Reports from the country indicate a similar feeling over several of the candidates from that section. Unofficial returns except on cor oner and surveyor are given below. The returns on the latter offices are Incomplete, but enough is known to make the election of Geo. Trunken boltz, Republican, for surveyor as sured, with close prospects for the coroner between Ratnour, Demo crat, and Clements, Republican. In dications put Trunkenboltz's ma jority at about ISO, while the ma jority for either Clements or Rat nour will be small, with the indica tions favoring Clements: Clerk. Morgan. Democrat 1962 hushinsky, Republican 1873 Morgans majority, 8!). Treasurer. Schlater, Democrat 22 St Stark, Repui lican 1607 Schlater's majority, 677. County Judge.

Meislnger, Democrat 1865 Friedrich, Republican 1944 Frledrlch's majority, 79. On the city ticket P. E. Ruffner Is elected assessor over J. C. hlnde man by a small majority. For district assessor the indica tions point to the almost certain suc cess of Albert D. Despain, Democrat, over.A. P. Barnes, Republican. There was no contest on John Denson and James Iligley, Republican candidates for constable, and they aro doubt less chosen although a large num ber of personal friends toted for Ed. Donat all over the city and had he been on the ticket officially he would doubtless have been one of the winners. The race for Justices of the peace probably resulted in the election of John Cory and William B. Rishel, Democrats, although the latter is not certain; J. C. York seeming to be running him a strong race. Complete returns from four wards in the city on the city ticket give the following result, the Fifth ward missing: City Assessor. Ruffner, Democrat 364 hindeman, Republican 387 District Assessor. Despain, Democrat 435 Barnes, Republican 298 Constables. Denson, Republican 415 Higley, Republican 3C3 Justices of the Pence.

The games of Saturday evening were good and we can say that the games on next Thursday evening will be equally ns Interesting. A num ber of the members of each class were present and urged their par ticular team on with their class yells.

Ruffner, returned home last Sat urday evening from Arlington, where he has been packing apples, and entered the fray as a candidate for assessor. Ed. deserves the vote of every taxpayer and property hol der in the community and will be elected easily. As a Judge of prop erty values he is unexcelled, and the poor man especially can depend upon him. He found several interesting and welcome items waiting him, in cluding one telling of the good for tune of his son Grover, who has been conducting a lumber yard at Silver Creek, Neb. This young man Jias taken a position with the Hoard Lumber company, and is placed in charge of a yard at Duncan, Neb., at a substantial advance in his salary. His other son, Horace, who is em ployed by the Porter-Ryerson-Hoob-ler company in Omaha, also writes him of a promotion in that firm and a substantial advance in salary. Everything taken together, Ed. seems to have everything coming his way, which Is pleasing information to his many friends in Cass county. Lights on Main Street Tonight. The work of Superintendent Cla- baugh of the Nebraska Lighting com pany is commencing to show up, the eighteen gas lights ordered by the city having been put in place and ready for business at the present time and tonight the citizens can come down and find a progressive movement of a Democratic govern ment in good light on Main street and the prospects for light on the avenues being bright. Mr. Clabaugh states that he exepects to have his force at work next Monday on string ing wires on the city streets and that it will be but a few days until the en tire city will blaze and worth seeing. General prospects for Plnttsmouth were never better than now and Mr. Clabaugh is working with all his might toward securing the benefits of a live, progressive town for this place.

With big crops, fat bank accounts i.iul with prosperity reigning su preme i;i every country home, it is the duty of every farmer to' look around for opportunities whereby bis children can gain impressions that. wUl prove beneficial to them through life nr.l If by taking advantage of these, lie can, at the same time, se cure ( r hiiuialf and his good wife much needed rest and recreation, it would seem that such an opportunity should appeal to him. This oppor tnnty 13 offered In connection with the International Live Stock Exposi tion, which will be held In Chicago from November 27 to December 10. The champions of the leading shows of the world, in fact, the finest speci mens of cattle, horses, sheep and swine that the world produces will here compete for supremacy and final honors. Do you know what this means? Can you realize what a lib eral education such a collection pro duced by the world's foremost feed- ers and breeders means to your boys? Tin' best brains, the greatest mas ters of the live stock industry, the foremost live stock specialists will here demonstrate what can be ac complished, and shrewd farmers will begin to think of these tilings and endeavor to make arrangements so that they can profit by the teachings of this great international exposi tion. The coming show gives promise of being the greatest of this splendid series of events, and the manage ment Is planning to offer a program that will far eclipse anything that has ever been offered in the past delightful music, dashing perform ances and brilliant evening entertain ments, combined with educational op portunities unequaled in the world. Where can a greater combination be found at such a nominal outlay of money. Education, entertainment, a pleasure trip and recreation all in one. Why not plan a pleasant sur prise for the folks at home and take advantage of these exceptional op portunities? At the Ghost Convention. About fifty were conveyed to the home of Mrtand Mrs. M. S. Briggs on Chicago avenue, Saturday evening, where they attended the annual con vention of ghosts, given by the Loyal Daughters, members of Mrs. Briggs1 Sunday school class of tho Christian church. The house had been approp riately decorated with witches, black cats, hands and jack-'o-lanters. In the search for cat eyes, represented by corn candy, Miss Eleanor Todd was awarded the prize. In a contest Miss Anna Petersen proved to bo the best guesser and was awarded the prize. During the evening a fortune teller apportioned wealth and hand some lovers and sweethearts to thoBe who wore brave enough to test their fate. The pleasures of the evening were a luncheon consisting of witches' stew on half shell (pump kin pie), frog legs (fried nut bars), seeds of evil (apples), when I and you were young (milk). Tins con vention proved very successful bo dally and financially, and much of the Buccess was duo to tho untiring efforts of Miss Shlpman.

Garland, United States district judge for the Cost and Importance of a Twelve Foot Channel The cost of building and equipp ing high grade railroads ranges from $25,000 to $60,000 per mile, accord i ing to the topog'-aphh al and engi neering conditions encountered. It is estimated that a twelve-foot channel could be made In the Missouri river from St. Louis to Sioux City, la., at a cost of about $60,000 per mile. This bannel, once secured, would be prac tically self-maintaining, for which the stream properly confined to the cur rent would do the dredging. There fore, tho Missouri river, even on the deep-channel basis, would be much cheaper traffic way, in the long run, than a railroad. The capacity of tho river, with such a channel, would bo practically unlimited. It could easily carry all the products of Us whole watershed If it were desirable and feasible to bring these products aboard the river craft. The best way to secure the deep channel Is to make use of the present channel. The pro posed boat line offers not alone a good Investment In direct returns on guaranteed business, but it offers still greater returns in reduced freight rates and still greater returns In the encouragement of river traffic and river Improvement In general. The new boat line will have all the freight It can handle, but its chief business after all will be to promote tho use of the Missouri river on tho largest seule. Kansas City Star. State TcncherV Association. A special from Lincoln says: "Tho auditorium Is fast being converted into a place fit for the industrial ex hibit of the public schools of the state to be given in connection with the State Teachers' association, which be gins Wedneseday. "In the exhibition the entire work of the public school will be shown, including the Industrial department, the making of furniture, Implements and useful articles. The university will give the model farm, showing the farm bouse built so that the sun will strike every room at some period of the day. In the exhibition of tho university is a wagon which was made at the university farm, even to the iron work on it. This exhibit will also contain an exhibit of soil. This Is the first time any industrial exhibit of such magnitude has ever been un dertaken at a teachers' meeting in Nebraska. The auditorium will bo open day and night during the asso ciation meeting and the public is in vited free of charge." E. J.

She was unsuccessful, the local Shake spearian dub not seeing the way clear to make an engagement. Miss Wilson Is a young woman of pleas ing personality and engaging man ners, and made a most excellent im pression with the ladies nf thy club. It is possible that she will make an engagement in the in-ar future for another enteitalnmi'iit which she is connected with. She was much dls appclntid at being unable to locate her attraction here, but cxpnvsed herself as being highly delighted nt the treatment she received from our people. Among u Finest. John Rutherford yesterday after noon brought to town a number of ears of corn which rank among the finest ever raised In Cass county. Ouo of the ears weighs twenty-six ounces, something which Is phenomenal. A number of others In his field weigh as high as twenty-four ounces, and from that on down, but this was the prize winner. In addition to being large and heavy the corn was solid and the cob small, which Is nn Indi cation of its high grade. Mr. Ruth erford reports his corn as turning out finely and the yield being far better than he supposed when he started shucking. Mr. Rutherford Is a careful farmer and a hard worker, and the results of his work shows up very well. New Members' Reception. The Christian church will hold a reception Wedneseday evening of this week to the new members who united with the church during the Wilhlt.e Ttickerman meeting. A special pro gram, including music, readings and addresses will be given. The ladies of the church will serve refresh ments. It Is very important that all the members of the church be pres ent, whether new or old, to have part In the assignment of the new mem bers. The pnstor urges a full attend ance of the entire membership of the church. A most profitable meeting for the welfare of the church is cer tain If the attendance requested Is se cured. Accident at the Shops. A Mr. Wilcox, working in the shops last evening, suffered a severe injury to one of his knees by the accidental slipping of a jack which he was using. Tho Jack slipped, letting several heavy timbers catch his knee and badly bruise it. Ho was brought up town to the company surgeon, whero the injury was attended to and it will be several days before he la able to return to his work, lie was fortu nate in that the Injury was not more severe, as he might bave broken hi leg very easily.
