Entertains Past Chiefs.
From Saturday's Dolly
The Past Chiefs of the Degree
of Honor were entertained in a
most delightful manner ut the
home of Miss Teresa llempel at
her home on South Third street
yesterday afternoon. The ma
jority of the members were pres
ent and they held a short busi
ness session during the early part
of the afternoon. Following this
business session they devoted the
lime to the playing of various
games, conversation and I ho like.
An elegant luncheon was pro
vided by the hostess at an ap
propriate hour, she being assisted
in serving by Mesdames Joseph
Droege and V. (S. Kgenberger. A
little later the guests dispersed,
indebted to the hostess for the
splendid afternoon's entertain
ment. John Meisinger, Jr., nnd son,
Raymond, drove in from the farm
this morning so that Mr. Meising
er could have some dental work
attended lo and also visit his
father, Jacob Meisinger and wife,
for a time.

Had a Royal Good Time.
From Friday' Dally.
Mattsmouth Council No. 123,
Loyal Mystic Legion of America,
met in regular session in the
council chambers last evening and
initiated a class of sixteen. Field
Manager J. V. Doran of Omaha
has been in the city for the last
week, and with the assistance of
the local secretary, has written
28 applications, 21 of which have
passed a llrst-class medical ex
amination. The Loyal Mystic
Legion of America needs no in
troduction in this locality, having
been instituted since June, 1895.
This organization has the highest
flnanical standing of any fra
ternal or old line insurance com
pany in Nebraska today, having
a large surplus fund per capita
than any two other fraternal
orders in the state, or for that
matter, in the United States. Their
plan being as near equitable as
it is possible for insurance of
this character to be. Platts
moulli Council feels proud of its
members and invites the inspec
tion of the public, soliciting your
consideration and connection.
After the heavy stunt of initia
tion was over a general love-feast
in the way of speechmaking, was
had and was enjoyed by all pres
ent. Mrs. Kate Remington of
Omaha, who is also state manager
of the Woodman Circle for the
state of Nebraska, spoke very
flatteringly of the Mystic Legion
and fully endorsed I he plan and
workings of the order. Field
Manager Doran gave a lengthy
talk to the newly-made members
in particular, which was both
pleasing and instructive. The
Council then adjourned to the
banquet hall, where the social
committee introduced the mem
bers to delicacies of the season.
Instrumental music was rendered
(luring the partaking of the ice
cream and cake, after which the
room was cleared and the crowd
for a ' short, time tripped the
fantastic and otherwise enjoyed
the social hour.
Very Much Ballot.
The Journal ollice has just
completed the primary election
ballots, to be voted by all the
parties at the primary election
next Friday, and it has sure been
a pretty much ballot week with us,
too. The republican ballot is al
most Ave feet in length, while the
democratic one is but a few
inches shorter. The people's in
dependent, comes next with three
feet in length, followed by the
socialist and prohibition, measur
ing aumost the same. This makes
a total of nineteen feet of ballot
if they were all in one.' Can it be
any wonder that so many voters
are somewhat confused when they
come to select their favorite can
didate among so many? The re
publican and democratic ballots
have every ollice represented by a
candidate, except county attorney,
on the latter, Calvin II. Taylor on
the republican ballot being the
only candidate for the ollice of
county attorney. The Journal
has printed the ballots for several
years past, hut (he one this year
has been the longest that we have
ever had any experience with. The
tidal number printed for all
parlies was almost 15,000, includ
ing both sample and official.
The home of Mrs. Harry John
son was the scene of a most en
joyable kensington Thursday aft
ernoon, when she entertained the
members of the "V. Y. T.," an
organization of the Christian
Science church. There were four
teen members in attendance, all
of whom brought their fancy work
and spent the hurry moments
in stitching with the busy needle.
Another pleasing feature of the
afternoon was a program of
music, both instrumental and
vocal, which was very much ap
preciated. A delicious luncheon,
which Mrs. Johnson knows best
how to serve, was provided at the
proper time, she being assisted in
serving by Miss Christine Soen
nichsen. Buys New Car.
J. K. McDaniel last Wednesday
purchased a fine .$3,300 Stoddard-
Dayton automobile, 11U2 pattern,

proud of and one that will go wilh
any of them. He has an excellent
garage just back of his place of
business, made lire-proof and up
to-dale in every respect.

AMENDMENTS 10 BE
VOTED UPON FRIDAY
Is the Only Manner In Which Our
Antiquated Constitution Can
At the coining election there
will be live constitutional amend
ments submitted to the people.
This is the only manner in which
our antiquated constitution can
be changed. The people must
vote intelligently in order to se
cure the necessary changes. The
first amendment is in regard to
the initiative and referendum. On
this question we believe that near
ly all the people will vide in the
allirmative. It affords the neoule
the right to pass upon all laws.
Amendment No. 2 is in regard
to the salary of members of the
legislature. On this question the
people will care but little, but all
will agree that our legislators are
not paid sufficiently. Hut they Ret
.No. 3 is one that should anneal
to almost every person in the
state. It provides for the crea
tion of a board of commission
ers that will have charge of all
the state institutions. This
means that the various institu
tions will be taken out of politics
and placed under the control of
No. 4 provides for a general
election every two years. Those
who are compelled to mix in
politics will favor this amend
ment. We are not prepared lo
say whether we favor it or not. At
present there are too many elec
tions, and when we have the re
call and special election it will
keep one busy voting.
No. 5, the amendment permit-
ling cities of more than 5,000 in
habitants to frame its own
charter lias some good features
iml many bad ones. The charter
that would apply to York. (Srand
Island or Hastings would not, be
suitable to this city. It would
make such a mix-up in regard to
law that no one could tell where
the city stood.
Sain Henderson has reopened
the Collins' restaurant in I he
Hotel Hi ley basement, and will be
pleased to have all those desiring
regular meals or short orders call

just about what the people desire
when tired ami hungry, and he
will always try to please them.
He intends to carry everything the
market afVords in the line of good
"eat ins," nnd every effort will be
exerted to prepare them to suit

Making the Roads Good.
From Saturday'! Dally.
Waller Hyers, road overseer
from the Kenosha district, and

business mailers. In conversa
tion with numerous farmers driv

that the roads are in excellent
condition all the way to Platts
mouth, and especially is Ibis true
in Mr. Dyers' district. Mr. Hyers
is exerting every effort to make
the roads in the very best condi
tion, which is certainly ap
preciated by all who are com
pelled to travel them at this sea
son of the year.
Llg Loses His Hat.
From Saturday's Dally.
Our friend, L. H. Hrown, lost
his hat while in I own today and
has not seen it since. He started
for home, ami in passing the H. &
M. shops (lie high wind lifted his
"lid7 with such force as though
il was carried right up lo the
clouds and never came back. He
says it was done so suddenly that
he never caught sight of it from
the lime it left his head. He is of
(he opinion that it blew over the
fence at the shops. He came back
to (own lo buy a new one, and left
an ad at the Journal for the lost
top-piece to be left here by the
I'. M. Haumgart drove in from
his . farm yesterday nnd looked af
ter business trailers in the city.
