CITY OF PlATTSiUTH CUB
Democratic School Board Ticket and Three Councilmen Elected
Weber Elected in Second Ward amd Neuman in Fourth
Yesterday witnessed cne of the
litietest elections held In this vicin
ity in years, the vote polled being
light and the Interest manifested
being very lax indeed on the part
of all except those parties who were
the most immediately affected
the candidates thernselves in some
a.ses making an active campaign for
votes throughout the day, In fact,
the vote all over the city was so
light that contrary to the expecta
tion of the clerks of the election,
who thought it would be at least
two hours before they could get the
count complete, the votes were all
counted within about a half hour of
the time that the polls closed.
On the whole the election was a
.splendid Democratic victory, that
party securing the selection of three
of the five councilman and the two
members of the school board. Al
though there was so little interest
manifested, on the whole, the elec
tion was a close one, in one case
the result hinging on the small ma
jority of two votes. In the First ward
the Republican candidate, Mr. .John
Iverpin mado a very active cam
paign, with the result that his op
ponent Mr. Dwyer, running on the
'Democratic ticket defeated him by
only one vote. This ward was the
most hotly contested of any and the
outcome remanied in doubt up to the
In the Second ward, although Mr.
Lorenz, the Democratic candidate
made a vigorous campaign, his op
ponent, Mr. Ve!er was too well
"known and too popular for his ma-!
jority to be overcome. In this ward
the unofficial count gave Mr,. Weber
a majority of about thirty-three. Mr.
Weber has been a resident of the
ward for a great many years and as
he is well and favorably known to
practically every voter in his ward,
the large majority , is not to be
wondered at and Mr. Lorenz need
not feel at all discouraged by the
Je fight In the Third ward be
tween the Democratic candidate, Mr.
A. S. Will and Mr. Steimker, who
had his name placed on the ballot
as a candidate by petition, resuUed,
sis everyone had expected, in a vic
tory for the former by a small ma
jority of votes. That his majority
. vps not greater is probably due

has not been able to conduct hla
campaign as he should have, as he
Is a man of great enterprise and
will most assuredly do a great deal
toward the Improvement of the city
in many ways. With Mr. Will on
the beard it ,ls expected that the
project recently discussed of macad
amizing Chicago avenue, the main
thoroughfare leading into the city
can be arranged for and pushed to
completion. Mr. Steimker has been
a member of the council for a great
many years and yesterday he made
a strenuous campaign for re-election,
spending practically the entire
day at the polls, but the popularity
and well known progresslveness of
Mr. Will proved too great a handi
cap to be overcome.
In the Fourth ward Mr. Xeuman
made a careful canvass of the voters
and as many had expected he was
elected by a small majority. Mr.
Ncuman ha3 been a member cf the
council for several years and this
year was a candidate by petition. In
this ward Wm. Fahlson, the Repub
li-an candidate, made scarcely any
fight at all for election and the con
test wp 3 almost entirely between
Mr. N'euman and the Democratic can
didate, Mr. George Dodge. Although
defeated, Mr. Hodge put up a good
race, ledng to Mr. Neuman by a ma
jority of only C votes.
In the Fifth ward another Demo
cratic, victory resulted, although here
the contest was not close, Mr. Wm.
Graven winning by a majority of 18
over .lohn Toman, the Republican
candidate. Mr. Gravett is a man
who is personally very popular and
In addition to this he made a very
active campaign and had a good
Democratic majority to rely upon.
The election cf the Democrailc
candidates for the school board,
Messrs. Soennichstn and Roberts was
only that which had been generally
expected, they winning easily over
the Republican candidates, Mesdames
Chapman and Thrasher. Doth the
successful candidates for the school
board are gentlemen who have serv
ed in that capacity before and they
will without doutt give entire satis

TRIALS OF THE
God Bless the "Old Subscriber"
and May He Live Long and
To attain to its best a newspaper
should be as accurate as possible in
Its statements. The work of publish
ing a paper Is one of endless details
and eternal vlgilauce Is the price
which must pay for even partial
freedom from errors. No editor here
has escaped humiliation and chagrin
over the errors which unaccountably
but persistently creep into the paper,
and none escape the visits of the
perennial and ubiquitous bore who
will wade through fire and water to
call upon the editor and exult over
the fact that the newspaper never
gets anything right. The editor gets
a name wrong that is mumbled to
him over the telephone, he 'always
bungles everything.' If a politician
gets caught in an unpopular inter
view, he declares that he was "mis
quoted." If the paper makes an im
material nils-statement In an 'article
In which the main facts are correct,
the editor will find that it is a "tissue
of falsehoods from beginning to end."
If in the hurry of editorial discussion
he accepts poor authority, and, mis
states a fact he is denounced as a
willful and bespotted liar! Gossips
who are utterly without prudence in
statements of the shortcomings are
brazenly criticising the editor for
even the most manifest of errors. The
experienced newspaper man has long
since learned that newspaper perfec
tion is attained only by those who
have never engaged In the business,
and his feelings cf resentment at un
just criticism gives away to one of
calm and serene contemplation of the
bolbles of mankind.
It is the average public to whom
the editor must make his appeal and
every editor knows that the average
man is fair and just and appreciative.
Each editor has hundreds of such
on his list. He is the "Old Sub
scriber." He is the man who takes
tbe paper through storm and sun-
shine. If he sees something in the
paper he does not like, he does not
inflict capital punishment on the
editor by stopping his paper, lie has
Ideas of Lis own but he is willing
that other men should have theirs,
if the paper misses the mails, he
tr.ltes it good hupioredlj. If lit Is
asked to nay lis subscription, he
dees so with a chuckle and declines
that he ought to have paid it before,
if he reads an c pinion In his paper
with whi'-h be differs he writes the
editor a letter cv discusses the it ra
tion with him in a friendly way. The
Old Subscriber" is the backbone of
a newspaper's support. One of him
is worth a dozen of the hysterical
and "stop my paper'' sort who fly
into a rage when they cannot run
the whole shop. I heie propose a
toast to the "Old Subscriber" the
man who Htands without hitching
the good'old standby who pays with
out grumbling, differs without quar
reling, helps without ostentation,
gives praise and criticism when each
falls due, and who Is welcome In
every newspaper office In the land
whether he wears broadcloth or over
alls. God bless the "Old Subscriber"
and may he live long and prosper.
But with all of Its worries and re
sponsibilities the work of the craft
is not only agreeable but fascinating.
We have a daily chance to grow to
grow In wisdom, purse and grace.
We come In contact with people of
all sorts and with big and puzzling
questions of all kinds. We are con
stantly on the firing line of the
world 'b endeavor. We are living In
an age of marvels and we must par
take of Its lofty spirit and its glor
ious optimism. Messages flash
through the air without the aid of
wires; boats swim under the water;
ships fly through the air. Philan
thropy has put millions of dollars at
the disposal of science to fight dis
ease. The generation Is alert to its
responsibilities and its needs. It is
doing things. Civic righteousness is
growing. The bugle call has been
sounded for the welfare of men. We
are trying to Btop the impoverish
ment of the soil, the depletion of the
forests, the nionoply of our water
powers and the spendthrift, treat
ment of our natural resources. Pub
lic sentiment Is full of red blood and
was never more alive. It Is for us
to play the man's part and to realize
that we can only keep In step with
the music of events by unremitting
zeal, which is character building and
equipment for life is its own glor
ious and fitting regard.

A Woman Finds All Her Energy
and Ambition Slipping Away
Plattsmouth women know how the
aches and pains that come when the
kidneys fail, make life a burden.
Backache, hip pains, headaches, diz
zy spells, distressing urinary trou
bles, all tell of sick kidneys and warn
you of the stealthy approach of dia
betes, dropsy and Rrlght's disease.
Doan's Kidney Pills permanently cure
all these disorders. Here's proof of
it in a Plattsmouth woman's words:
Mrs. James liodgert, 1102 Main
street, Plattsmouth, Neb., says: "I
suffered a great deal at times from
dull, heavy pains across the small
of my back, especially severe when
I stooped or brought any strain on
the muscles of my loins. About two
years ago I learned of Doan's Kid
ney Pills and they brought me such
prompt and positive relief that I
have since used them whenever I
have felt in need of a kidney remedy.
I procured Doan's Kidney Pills at
Gering & Co.'s drug" store and do
not hesitate to recommend them."
The above statement given In June
and on December 30, 1908,
Mrs. Hodgert said: "I still hold a
h'gh opinion of Doan's Kidney Pills.

j icc.-ly said about this remedy."

(ood Kernels Movement.
Down at Lexington, Mo., the other
day the "embattled fanners'' of the
neighborhood voted $120,0(10 in
bonds for the purpose of building
rends in a road district eight miles
square. .Many who can Icok back
that distance to the time when the
counties and towns in Missouri were
enthusinstically voting bonds for the
construction of railroads.
The railroads have contrlbu'ted
their Bhaie to the development of
the west. The reaction in sentiment
which has resulted from the local
loss of control of those bond-aided
railroads has not affected the prop
osition that every dollar invested in
them has been repaid many times.
One of the lessons learned in re
cent years in Missouri, as well as
other states, however, Is that the
railroads alone do not meet the de
mand created by Increased popula
tion and new industrial conditions.
It has been found that good road
communication between the farm and
the railroad Is only secondary to good
communication between the local
market and the centers of consump
tion. The vote of Lexington marks
the beginning of a movement that
promises important results not only
for the Missouri farmer but for all
those who are in any degree depend
ent upon his products. Good roads
mean cheaper hauls to market and
must mean eventually a considerable
lessening of the tax that now falls
heavily, upon the produce of the
farm between the time when It Is
taken from the sell and the time
when It reaches the ultimate con
sumer. Missouri has no more energetic
farmers than Nebraska, but they are
looking at the matter of good roads
In the proper light, and In a way
that the farmers of Cass county
should view the matter.

Considerable excitement was arous
ed this afternoon by the sounding of
the fire alarm to arouse the city on
account of tho mysterious disap

building. Mrs. Anderson is quite
an old lady and when, after leaving
the house this morning without nny
one seeing her, she did not return
this noon at dinner time, It began to
be feared that she might have met
with Borne accident and consequently
the alarm was sounded and a search
ing party organized. Up to the time
of the Journal going to press the old
lady has not been found and the ap
prehension for her safety is Increas
ing. Unless Bho Is discovered quick

organized to scour the country and
ascertain what has become of her. ,
