Outlook for a Great Revival of Building Operations It Very Bright
and It Looks Like the Year 1912 Would Prove to Be Banner
Year for Plattsmouth and Its Citizens.
It is I In intent iin of Hit' Jour
nal lo keep Irackof tin1 many im
pnnrmcnts to be made in I'latts
n)outh this season. Some im
provements contemplated have
not yet been started, hut in an
interview with those interested in
these improvements I hey lohJ us
work will begin so as to complete
the work before another winter
IMaltsinoulh has evidently
caught the improvement fever,
and it is asserted by those who
ought to know (bat more money
will be expended in improving this
year I ban there was last year, and
if this be I tie case, it demon
strates that capitalists have great
faith in the old town. There is
not a vacant store room in the
city, of which many towns the
size of l'laltsmouth cannot boast,
and there is a probability that
several old eye-sores on Main
street will be removed and new
brick structures take their places
II. M. Soennichsen, who recently
purchased the vacant lot adjoin
ing I In' Journal building on the
west, contemplates erecting a
large store in the near future, and
may do so this season. He pur
chased the lot for this purpose in
order to secure more room for his
iriannnoth trade. Store rooms are
being renovated and remodeled,

There is not near as many
knockers in l'lattsniouth as there
was two years ago and maybe this
has something to do with the
prosperity of our city. Knockers
can do a lot of injury to a town
and not a particle, of good. The
best way to treat those fellows is
with silent contempt, and soon
they will close up like a clam.
They won't do any improving on

Arbor Day.
This is the anniversary of the
birth of J. Sterling Morton, for
many years one of the prominent
citizens of Ihe state, a lover' of
trees and an advocate of tree
planting. The legislature of 1885
before Mr. Morton's death, madi
April ii a legal holiday . and
designated it Arbor day. Of Mr
.Morton Ihe histroy of Nebraska
says: "Nothing escaped him in
giving encouragement lo Ihe ma
terial development of the .state
and agriculture, horticulture and
arrboricullure were his constant
themes." Mr. Morion introduced
a resolution at a meeting of the
state board of agriculture on Jan
uary i, 1872, held in Lincoln, set
ling apart April 10 as a day foi
tree planting in the state, naming
the day Arbor day.' This rcso u
lion provided a farm library of
25 worth of books for the per
son properly planting the larces
number of trees on that day of
Ihat year. On that day it was
estimated that 1,000,000 tree:
were planted in Nebraska, urn
perhaps an equal number on tin
day in Ihe year following. The
llrst proclamation calling for tin
observance of Arbor day was is
iied by Coventor Furnas in 1871

The canvassing board, com
posed of W. E. Rosencrans and
Perry Thackston, began this
morning an ollicial count of the
ballots cast at Friday's primary.
The unusual length of the bal-
ots, there being 50 democratic
and 78 republican names to can
vass by the boards of the county,
besides 5 constitutional amend
ments, with two votes each, ren
dered Ihe labor of canvassing the
vote so great that hardly any of
the boards took the precaution to
take the voles of the different
precincts, unolticially, as usually
is done, so that election news lias
jeen exceedingly unsatisfactory
and no definite statement can be
made until the count of Ihe
ollicial board is ready for publica
tion, which will be tomorrow.
The unolllcial count Saturday
veiling Ironi seventeen out of
Ihe twenty-five precincts resulted
ibout as follows: The democratic
preferential vole for president
gives Clark a safe lead over Wil-
on and Harmon. For United
States- senator Sliallenberger
leads both competitors, having a
majority over both. The four
legales-al-large elected will
pronanly lie Uitclieock, l.oonus,
llryaii and Dunn, and their vole
lands in Ihe order above men
ioned, Hitchcock loading the list.
District delegates to national con
dition, as shown from the seven

rnor, Morebead was the inure
popular candidate, receiving al
most double the Vide of his com
petitor, Mr. . Metcalfe. For rep-

For the office of governor there is
some surprise expressed on all
sides at the vote Newton received;
While Covernor Aldrich is no
doubt nominated, the vote is much
closer than expected. In Ihe pre
cincts heard from Paul Clark has
a majority of 75 and no doubt will
carry Ihe county. The vote on
representative- for Ihe Seventh
district will bo very close, bill an
unolllical count of all of Ihe pre
cincts gives the nomination to

against his competitor, 0. W.

Journal hones to have Ihe full
vote for tomorrow's issue.
