The republican papers are en
deavoring to get up a "scrap" be
tween Speaker Clark and ex-Governor
Polk over the presidential
question. The democrats of Mis

endorsed Mr. Folk for pre-ident,
and the delegation from that state

Plattsmouth needs an all-night

why can't we have it? We do not

According to the Hon. James
Schoolcraft Sherman. California's
biz majority for the recall is "a
slap at the president." So far as
that's concerned he is at perfect
liberty to construe it also as a
slap at the vice president.

around and appeals for the sym

people do not like such means of
electioneering and they won't
stand for it. Just mark that!
The office of police magistrate
has been changed somewhat. That
official has jurisdiction for three

Competency and cleverness with

The election of Don C. Rhod?n
to the office of sheriff will be a
good thing for Cass county, in the
fact that he is a man who pos
sesses the willingness as well as
the ability to do his duly. Don Is
not the man to shirk his duty, of
which he has the mora! courage
to perform In every respect.
The young men of (his city nre
nutating the organization of a Y.
M. C. A. and the agitation will be
extended to the older ones to the
extent of getting parents and
others interested in the matter.
Most of the towns of the size of
Plallsmoulh can boast of such an
organization, and there should bo
interest enough taken by the older
heads of the town to assist the
young men in such a laudable un
dertaking. Many, perhaps, think
such an association is denomina
tional, but it is not. All churches
who do not be
long to any church whatever, are
encouraging the enterprise and it
will only take the. right kind of
boosters to accomplish great re
sults in this direction.
The voters of Cass county are
studying the character and
qualifications of the candidates
on both tickets, and they are go
ing to support those whom they
think are the best fitted for the
positions to which they aspire.
They believe, also, that they have
judgment sufficient to know who
are deserving of their support and
We ask the voters to examine
the record of James T. Reynolds,

him, and you will find that ho is

spected by all who know him and
is competent to fill the office of
district clerk with credit to him

Clell Morgan has made ns good
a county clerk ns Cass county has
ever had, and the voters are so
well satisfied on this score that
they believe he deserves a second
term. They know that no man
could possibly perform the duties
of county clerk more efficiently
and faithfully than has Mr. Mor
gan. The people know it, and
that is reason enough for them
to support him for re-election
The people of Cass county arc
satisfied that Don C. Rhoden pos
sesses the moral courage and
willingness to perform the duties
of the sheriff's office in a manner
that it is intended they should be
performed. Don has 'many
friends in all parts of the county

THE TAFT RECORD.
President Tafl's long journey
through the states is causing the
people to review his record, and
they find that as soon as he took
his seat he surrounded himself
with an inpenetrable line of trust
He permitted administration
attacks which at any time he
could have stopped upon every
progressive policy that had been
introduced in congress.
The one most popular thing
among the people at that time was
the conservation of natural re
sources and he placed Ballinger,
wno was friendly with every
syndicate thai wanted Ip grab
those resources ,in his cabinet.
He affiliated in congress with
Aldrich, Cannon, Payne, Hale and
He appointed Hitchcock, (he
hairman of the republican na-
t:onal conimiflee, postmaster
general, who has used that de
partment as an adjunct of a
political parly and is at present
using the power of the office to
me up every postmaster in every
slate of the union for the re-elec
tion of his superior officer.
He gave no support at all to
those republicans who desired to
owcr the tariff.
He signed the Payne-Aldrich
bill and vetoed the bills that
would have moderately reduced
I he tariff.
In his Huston speech he in
dorsed Aldrich, and in his
Winona speech he indorsed
Tawney, the two greatest reac
tionaries in the country.
He has denounced and tried to
read out of the republican party
such progressive senators as La
Follette, Heveridge and others.
His only open alliances have
been with the special interests.
It is because of the things that
President Taft has done that he
has received such a cool recep
tion whenever he has presented
himself to the people. It is by
the things that ho has done that
the people arc judging him.
the insurgent leaders, his real
lighting, enemies, got by, Hanked
hirn on the right and flanked him
on the left, and closed up in the
rear with a big muster at Chicago,
at which La Follettee, the arch
insurgent, was given high praise
and indorsed for the republican
nomination and Taft was ignored
and by implication utterly con
demned. The irony of fate seems to
have hovered pretty continuously
over President Taft's career as a
politician. He set out to become
a popular president, but became
a popular man and an unpopular
president. He set out to have
the tarilT low ered, but succeeded
in having it raised to still higher
marks and kept there. He set
out to have his cabinet a collec
tion of pippins, but he garnered
in quite a number of lemons. He
set out to brine Canada and the
United States into more friendly
trade relations by a reciprocal
treaty, but succeeded almost in
having diplomatic relations be
tween the two nations broken off
and war declared against this
country by Canada.
And now, while he marched
bodly to the attack of the insur
gents in the west, they sidestep
ped him and, joining the insur
gents in the east, delivered him a
stunning blow from behind.
From past events it seems cer
tain that if there were such a
thing as a political safety razor,
President Taft would cut himself
It will be just his luck to be
overwhelmingly nominated by the
republicans and overwhelmingly
defeated by the democrats.

of the school, in a general way,
are opposed to school functions
on any other evenings than Fri

TAFT AND THE INSURGENTS.
President Taft and the insur
gents of his party are enemies
There can be no question of that
though the president insists that
ho is neither a progressive nor a
standpatter, but a biddle-of-thc-roader.
With true blue insurgents, to
bo in the middle of the road is to
block up the passage, and they
consider that even stand-patism
could do no worse.
Hence President Taft, notwil
standing his neutral inclimation
and neutral feelings, is to them!
