Jail Proposition. I
The voters of Cass county,
when they go to Hie polls next
Tuesday, should hear in mind to
cast their ballots in favor of the
proposition for building a new jail
and the heating plant of I he. coun
ty court house. This is a question
that is of vital importance to the
public of I his county and one that
they should give their attention
at the polls. The county lias need
ed the jail for years and now that
the opportunity is given the voters
they should vole for a proposition
that will place this county among
the, other counties of the state
that have modern places in which
the county prisoners can he con-
llned without danger of their
breaking out, or having the county
put to the expense of having to
send Ihem to some other county
for safe keping, as has been done
on several occasions in the past.
The county is in good financial
condition and as the outlay is not
great for the building of the jail
there is no good or logical reason
why the proposition should not
be given an enormous majority at
the polls next Tuesday. Turn out
and vol e for I he jail and heating
plant and then the county will be
able to care for any prisoner, no
matter bow dangerous, and not be
compelled to send them away at
the expense of the county and it
will only bo a short time until the
jail will have saved enough to the
taxpayers to more than pay the
cost of building it. The heating
plant at I he court house needs re
modeling and with the new build
ing it can bo fixed up without as
much expense as it would cost to
try ami install it in the present
cramped quarters in the court
The running expenses of the
present ramshackle structure has
averaged $1,500 per year, which
sum would more than pay the in
terest on the bonds and it is a
matter of economy for the taxpay
ers to vole for the jail and cut out
this useless expense.

Succumbs to the Second Operation
at Imanuel Hospital This
Morning at 5 O'clock.
Grant Coiner, who had been in
a very critical condition at Iin
inanuel hospital in Omaha for
several days, passed away this
morning at 5 o'clock. Mr. Cottier
bad submiled to several opera
lions at Hit! hospital in an effort
to afford him relief, but the
doctors agreed several .days ago
that the end was only a question
of a short time, and the family
was summoned to Omaha.
The trouble started several
years ago, when he received an
injury to his head, and although
it bothered him a great deal at
times, he did not consider it as
serious until the pain became so
intense that he was forced to go
to the hospital to undergo an ex
amination and operation for what
was supposed to be an abcess in
During the operation Ihe
doctors discovered that part of Ihe
bone was in a decayed condition
nnd removed it, but Ihe patient
did not improve and was forced to
submit to two more operations,
tho last of which occurred two
days ago and from the effects of
which he never recovered.
Mr. Cottier leaves a wife and
two daughters, besides his mother
and several brothers. The de
ceased resided at Stella, Neb., and
it has not ben determined whether
Ihe interment will be made at that
place or not.
The Great Flipflopper Addresses
a Small Audience at the
There was an audience of about
a hundred persons assembled at
Ihe district court room last night
to hear Mike Harrington expond
the doctrines of his latest political
fa it h that of the bull mosers.
Mr. Harrington devoted Ihe prin
cipal portion of his speech to at
tacks upon I ho democratic leaders,
charging them w ith fraud at their
convention, but he never enlight
ened his audience to the fact that
before Ihe primary election he
could not llrnl mean enough things
to say about Champ Clark, and
was one of Ihe loudest supporters
of (lovernor Wilson.
Mr. Harrington has had a very
much varied career in Nebraska
polities, being llrst a populist,
I hen a radical democrat, later
I supporting Ihe liberal element in
llhal parly, and now he has taken
j his clolhes and gone over to the
I parly of Teddy and Perkins.
f In Ihe election this year there
I are very few democrats who are
! not going to support the entire
ticket, ns it is the best, that has
1 ii offered Ihe voters for many
! years, and they cannot neglect
j this opportunity lo secure the re
1 forms the people have been de
manding, and they can be secured
by voting for the only parly rep.
resenlalives of Ihe common peo
ple the democratic party. Flip
flop Michael is one of Ihe greatest
political acrobats of the present
Inge, ami in all probability will be
mud lined up wilh the stamlpat
republicans in another vear.

THE BURLINGTON APPEAL
CASE OF JESSE F. BLUNT
The liurlingtoii Wednesday ap
pealed in the case brought
against it by Jesse F. Blunt, a lire
man who was injured at Plalts
inotilh ami got a judgment of $ ,
TtiiO damages in the federal court.
Blunt was a fireman on a switch
engine, and he fell off while tilling
Ihe sand box on the locomotive.
He alleged that his accident was
due to negligence, claiming that
the engine was started suddenly
without a warning signal being
given. The injuries received
were to one knee. The railroad
company introduced evidence to
show that. Blunt had formerly
served in the United Stales army
as a cavlaryman and while in the
service he sustained an injury to
the knee, ami because of this he
had tried to get a pension. The
railroad attorneys contended that
Blunt's disabled condition was
due to his accidents in the army
rather than because of the fall he
received while employed by (he
company. Lincoln Journal.
"IHE WOLF" AT THE
. PARMELE LAST NIGHT
"The Wolf," that appeared at
Ihe Parmele theater last evening,
was greeted by a very fair-sized
audience, although not as large
as the company deserved, but. as
the attraction has appeared in this
city several times, most of the
play-going public had witnessed
it before, which accounted for the
attendance not being larger. Tin-
play is a story of the great
Canadian woods and is a most in
teresting one, and was well car
ried out by the company that ap
peared here last evening. The
play throughout was first-class in
every respect, and each one acted
