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 approaches. 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.

Stand on the high places in town and fine can view here and there new residences going up all over town, and improvements being made on old residences, and thus the good work goes on and our business men and citizens gen erally feel that l'laltsmouth has a bright future. 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 their own properly and don't like to see other people do any im proving. . , The Journal is dellglited to see the spirit of enterprise again. in the ascendancy. this season anil much of this sentiment is duehi a well organized and harmonious Commercial club, which should const it ute every business man in town, no matter how large or how small his business. The club has done much for Hie prosperity of the city and with Ihe aid of every business man could do more. If you can't do anything else, beautify your own home and see that your premises are free from all trash.

The piano recital given by the pupils of the l'laltsmouth Studio of Music Saturday afternoon and evening at the home of Miss Kittie Cummins was attended by a large number of their parents and friends, in spite of the inclemency of the weather, the recital given during the afternoon hours hav ing the largest number present, there being about 5 present in the evening. Many were anxious to attend these recitals, but were detained at their homes on ac count of the threatening elements.

One of thi' pleasing features of Hie -evening program was the violin selection by Charles Zaruha. a pupil of Frank J. Kolbaba, iolin virtuoso. The se lections rendered by him were "Madriijalc," by Simonelli, and "Lullaby," by Frinl, each number being given in a very finished style and denoting much careful practice and training on the part of both pupil ami instructor. The students taking part in the evening program were: Hoy Den son. Misses Fdilh Dovey, I'heino .Richardson, Jennedc Patterson, Janet and Harriett Clement, Zoia Smith.

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 Shooting Firearms in City. The careless use of firearms within the city limits by minors is becoming all too frequent. citizen of the Second ward had in bis possession Saturday a bulb from a 22-caliber rille which had been llatlened by coining in con tact with some hard substance the bullet having come through a window glass at the man's homt lone day last week, making n large I hole in the glass and falling on i the library table on the opposit i side of the room.

The penalt I for tiring a gun within Ihe city .limits is a line or imprisonment and in addition Ihe party is liabl civilly for any damage Ihat is done when in violation of the , city ordinance and the laws of Ihe j state a gun is thus tired.

BIG BALLOT IKES MIT SLOW Unofficial Returns From Seven teen Precincts Is Given Below In Cass County. 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 ecu precincts, will be W. IV Wheeler and Tibhells. For gov- rnor, Morebead was the inure popular candidate, receiving al most double the Vide of his com petitor, Mr. . Metcalfe. For rep- 'esenlalive in the .Seventh district' (lust in will no doubt be Hie nom inee by a good majority. For county commissioner Julius Pilz las a safe majority over Mr. Noli- mg. On the republican ticket Roose velt, in (lie seventeen precincts heard from, has almost double Ihe vole of his I wo. compel itors, La Folletle and Taft. Norris for Fniled Slates senator will lead Senator ltrown by a safe majority. 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 ('diaries Hichey of Louisville as against his competitor, 0. W. Cheney of Union, by l i voles. The Journal hones to have Ihe full vote for tomorrow's issue. With Davis Milling Co. Mr. Jay Joiinson of St. Joseph, Missouri, is in the city on a com bined pleasure and business trip, isiting at Ihe home of his par ents, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph John son.
