cd Gage County Assessment.
Lincoln, July 18. The board having
In charge the Lincoln monument mat
ter met in the office of the secretary
of state and took up some of the work
necessary to make the unveiling ol
the statue a success. A platform will
be erected north of the entrance to
the state house, from, which the ad
dresses will be made, temporary seats
to be erected on the plaza in front for
the seating of the crowd. A small
platform will be erected at the statue
to be used In the unveiling, which
may oe done by a couple of the old
veteran of the civil war, though that
as yet has not been decided upon. It
Is intended to make the exercises a
part of the regular Labor day pro
gram, if satisfactory arrangements
can be completed with those having
the Labor day parade In charge.
Ohj'ct to Phone Consolidation.
A hearing took place before the
railway commission, in which citizens
of Wymore, Odell, Barneston and lib
erty object to a consolidation of the
two telephone exchanges there, which
was brought about by the consolida
tion of the Boll and Independent ex
changes. Most of the trouble comes
from the abolishment of the "free ser
vice" formerly used by the exchanges
nnd which the new company wishes to
cut out. The Lincoln company bas?s
iU claims for abolishment of the free
service because it will be . necessary
to put in a paid operator at Blue
Springs, where most of the free
switching has been done. The com
pany bhvs that the patrons are de
manding good service and It cannot
be given unlers adequate returns are
received. F. R. Windle, a Wymore
real estate man, suggested that the
Lincoln company might establish two
rates, one for Wymore people who
only desire Wymore service and an
other rate for those who desire ser
vice outside of Wymore. Railway
Commissioner Clark expressed himself
as favorable to some such a compro
mise and will take up the matter with
Manager Hurtz of the Lincoln com
Navy Will Pay Funeral Expenses.
The United States navy will pay
the expnBts of the funeral of Orvlll
White, the young naval student who
was accidentally shot at University
Place. According to the local naval
office the fact, that young White was
at home on a furlough does not relieve
the naval department from the re
sponsibility of giving him a burial ac
cording to naval usages. An attempt
will be made .o find sufficient former
member of the navy here to act as
escort to the remains.
Gage County Reports Decrease.
Gage county reported to the board
of assessment and Is one of the few
counties showing a loss from Its re
port of last year. The report this
year Is II 1.050,277,' while last year It
was $11,113,03(1, a falling off of $I2,

Having been fortunate enough to secure the agency for the Blau-Gass, we
are going to reduce our immense Hardware Stock and evenually close it out entirely, retaining only the
Heating and Plumbing end. In order to accomplish this quickly we are making the prices quoted in this
advertisement. This sale will coutinue uniil we find a buyer for our stock and will give you an opportu
nity to get goods' at less prices than they were ever offered in Plattsmouth before.
It is impossible to itemize prices on every item, as it would take over a month to go through and ite
mize everything separate. We wish to state that outside of heating and plumbing material we are not
holding back anything, but will discount every article, as we are positively going out ol the hardware end
of our business. With the new line that we have taken it will take all the time we have to give it proper
attention, and if there anything you need in the hardware line you would do well to look over our stock.
We are going to advertise our stock for sale in the leading papers and very likely will have a buyer for
the entire stock in a very short time, so if there is anything you need it would be well to get it at once.

Cannot Use General Fund In
Fighting Proposed Rate Raise.
Peoria, July 18 Modern Woodmen
of America camps cannot take money
from their general fund and use it In
the fight against the proposed rate in
crease, even though a majority of the
members of any camp are "Insur
gents," according to a ruling made by
Leslie D. Puterhougu In the circuit
court, when he Issued an Injunction,
prayed for by a "standpat" member
of Baker camp here In Peoria.
The camp by an overwhelming vote
decided two weeks ago to take the
general fund money and use It In a
light on the Increase in rates. Ed
ward Powers started proceedings and
won out, the court holding that while
a majority of any camp might desire
tne money so used, there was nothing
In the charter of any Woodman camp
which provided for the use of money
In that way.

Country May Remit Tolls to Ships

Washington, July 18. Senator
O'Gorman of New York charged in the
Benate that railroad Influence was be
hind Great Britain's protest against
the Panama canal bill and he joined
with Senator Lodge In declaring that
the United States possessed full rights
under th British treaty to give free
passage to ships of American regis
ter. These two speeches marked the
debate in the senate on the Panama
Both Mr. lodge and Mr. O'Gorman
declared this nation was not bound by
the HayPauncefote treaty to give
foreign ships all the privileges granted
American ships. Mr. Lodge favored
a bill to rebate the tolls to 'American
ships, while Senator O'Gorman de
clared the Unitod States possessed
the full right to give American vessels
free pn.isnge, If desired, Senator
Lodge conceded that If the case went
to The Hairue court tho United States, nnd Telegraph company, which oper
probably would lose. ates llnns in Illinois, was ordered out
The sopport for the provision giving
free passage to American ships
against which Great Britain has pro

western end of the canal," said Sena
tor Reed (Mo.), "bent upon passing
through to r.ttack the city of New
York, the United States would have no
right under such a construction of the
treaty to take anv steps against It."
Rule Would Hold During War.
Senator Burton (O.), who made the
first speech In support of the British
theory that the United States can give
no special privileges to Its own ves
sels, declared war would suspend the
operation of the treaty. Senator Mc
Cumber, however, In a apeech against
the fre provision, conceded that It
waa bis belief the canal would have to
remain neutral even In time of war
and that the United Statwa would be
forbidden by the HayPauncefote
treaty from taking Immediate meas
ures to block or use the canal for Its
own protection. Senator O'Gorman de
clared that railroad Influence was be
hind the British protest.
"I do not. think British shipping Is
rreatly 1ntersted," he said. "I be
lieve the railroads of Canada and the
rallroade of the United States have
been enabled to' secure the co-operation
of the British office of foreign af
fairs to embarrass this government.
Only Burden on This Nation.
The only government that has as
sumed any especial burden under the
treaty Is the United States." said Sen
ator O'Gorman. "England and other
countries have assumed no burdens

prevent similar action by other coun

"to reimburse Spanish ships for th?
tolls spent in coins through our canal."
Senator T.oi'pe rnised the question
whether the United States would lmve
a rlghf to Interfere If another country
should undertake to pay the tolls of
Its ships when passing through tlm
canal. No forlcn country, be said,
could Intovf ,e with any arrangement
