Abdication of King Constantine -May
End Herman Intrigues at
Prince Alexander, New Ruler, Will
Probably Favor the Entente
Paris, June 13. The fall of Con
stantine I., king of the Hellenes, who
abdicated yesterday in favor of his
son. Prince Alexander, is taken as the
beginning of Greece's allieganc to the
allies and an end to the German in
trigues at Athens.
The vigor with which the French
senator, M. Jonnart, on special mis
sion to Athens as the representative
of France. Great Britain and Russia,
begun the settlement of the Greek
problem in obtaining the abdication of
King Constantine and Crown Prince
George, has caused much satisfaction.
That he will succeed in helping
Greece to get on her feet again in the
shortest possible time, notwithstand
ing many difficulties which still re
main, is the unanimous opinion. The
new Greek ruler, Prince Alexander,
Ccnstantine's second son, is expected
to prove friendly to the. allies.
The Saloniki expedition has been
attacked by many in France as use-
ess, but everyone is agreed that the
force once there ought to be given
every opportunity to accomplish its
urpose. It was admitted that with
the perpetual menace of a stab in the
back from the Greek royalist army,
that the expeditionary force was
doomed to partial inaction. Encour
aged by the moderation of the entente
allies, whose over patient policy was
attributed largely here to the opposi
tion of the late Russian regime to
strong measures, Constantine eluded
most of the guarantees extracted
from him during June and December
of last year and continued his in
trigue with Germany. The blockade
alone kept him from active hostility.
If he could get the Thessely crops in
to his hands, not only would the en
tente allies lose a weapon, but he
would add considerably to the diffi
culties of the Venizelist forces who
counted on gaining a part of the crop.
M. Jonnart, after a series of rapid
consultations with the entente allied
ministers and with the Greek prenier,
Alexander Zaimis, decided upon quick
and drastic action and proceeded to
Saloniki, where he arranged with
General Sarrail for military assist
Eoth the former king and Prince
George, it was announced by Premier
Zaimis, intend to leave the country
immediately. It is reported that they
will embark on a Rritish warship and
proceed to Switzerland by way of
Italy. It is presumed that Prince
Alexander will take up his kingly du
ties with full acceptation of the ideas
which the protecting powers desire to
be put into effect in the government
cf Greece during the present war. He
is 24 years of age and has been free
from .anti-entente proclivities.
DELCO LIGHT SYSTEM
WINS WHEREVER TRIED
In the Journal today will be found
the advertisement of the famous Del
co lighting system, of which Isy Ro
senthal is the agent for Cass and ad
joining counties. Mr. Rosenthal has
a great faith in the power of adver
tising and has placed his advertise
ment on the basis of securing results
no results, no pay for the advertise
ment. For all inquiries and sales of
the Delco system from this advertise
ment the Journal will receive full pay
for the ad and otherwise the ad will
not be paid for.
Those who have used the Delco
Delco light system in their homes are
very enthusiastic over the system that
permits the farm home to be illumi
nated by a system of electric lights
equal to any in the world and which
is being found in increasing numbers
in the homes of the prosperous farm
ers of Cass county. If those who
are interested in good light for the
home would visit any of the homes
named in th advertisement where the
Delco system has been installed they
would find a demonstration of the
truth of our statement that the Delco
light is something that no farm house
can readily afford to be without.
Inquiries phoned to this office will
receive as prompt attention as those
mailed to Mr. Rosenthal's address in
NEW DELIVERY SCHEME
TO BE INSTALLED MONDAY
The new delivery system of the
business men of Plattsmouth will be
started on Monday, June 18, when M.
E. Manspeaker will take over the de
livery business of the stores of II. M.
Soennichsen, Hatt & Son, George W.
Thomas & Co., E. G. Dovey & Son,
E. A. Wurl, Lorenz Brothers and the
Peoples' store. The different stores
will prepare their orders and they
will be called for four times a day by
the wagons, twice in the morning and
twice in the afternoon, two wagons
operating on the north and south
sides of the city. The system will do
away with the individual wagons of
the different stores and will be much
more handy for the customers and
more economical for the storekeepers.

TWO SAVED IN 75,000
FIRE AT LINCOLN
A PLEASANT SURPRISE.
Lincoln, Neb., June 13. Lightning
struck a three-story building here
early today and started a fire which
for a time threatened to spread to a
numbe rof buildings in the retail busi
ness district. The $.'50,000 stock of
the E. J. Walt Music Co. was com
pletely destroyed and the Lincoln
Fhoto Supply Co. suffered a $15,000
loss. Two drug stores and the Arm
strong Clothing Co. were also dam
aged. The estimated loss is $75,000.
Joe Melcher and Roy Patterson,
who roomed on the third floor of the
building, found their escape cut off
from the stairway and were rescued
only by hard work. Assistant Chief
Russell was severely injured when he
fell into an area way, receiving bad
cuts and internal injuries.

membrance of her good work as a

IS NOW DEAD
German Press Has Abandoned Dis
cussion of the Reform Question.
Government Becomes More Arrogant
After Russia;? Internal
Copenhagen, June 13. The conven
tion of the radical party in Prussia
at which resolutions on various re
forms were passed, serves to call at
tention to somnolence of the political
refom movement after its phase of
activity synchronizing with the Rus
sian revolution and America's entry
into the war.
The German press has practically
ceased discussion of the reform ques
tion and nothing is being done toward
the modernization of the diets of the
federated states and nothing is now
being heard of the flood of proposals
to extend the electoral franchise and
abolish or reform the hereditary and
appointive upper houses in almost all
states of the empire.
The policy of Chanctlor Von Beth-
mvann-Hollweg, and the conserva
tives to defer the attempt to reform
the Prussian three class franchise un
til the end of the war prevailed
against the demand for an immedi
ate reform voiced by the socialists
and radicals. The delay in taking up
this urgent reform until the restora
tion of peace was treated as a mat
ter of course by socialist speakers.
Philip Scheidemann, chairman of the
reichstag reform committee, is busy
at Stockholm with an attempt to de
tach Russia from the entente allies
and has abandoned for the time being
interest in the work of the committee.
There are two previous reasons for
the decline of the reform movement.
One is the cockiness of the govern
ment, which feels very sure of its
strength, and position iitfview of the
collapse of Russia's offensive power
and of the fading effect upon the re
form movement of the Russian revo
lution war declaration against Ger
man autocracy. The second is the
usual tendency of reform movements
to run themselves out after a brief
period of spasmodic activity if re
formers are alowed to have their
heads for a time .
AN ECHO OF 1892.
ODD FELLOWS' MEMORIAL DAY.
It seems but yesterday since the
giant riding device, which was pat
ented by a Mr. Ferris and named tht
Ferris Wheel, was erected on the Mid
way of the Chicago World's fair an 1
majestically revolved for the enter
tainment of those who had courage
to take passage in one of its cars.
The merry-go-round, which for years
has brought joy to the hearts of the
kiddies, was but a pigmy in compari
son to the Ferris Wheel. The size of
Mr. Ferris' achievement was so great
that it really awed the patrons of the
fair. They were afraid of it. For
several weeks it was a failure from
a business standpoint. People hesi
tated about riding on the wheel. It
was just a trifle too high in the air
to suit folks. Undaunted, the wheel
kept right on going round and round,
much to the amusement of visitors
from all parts of the globe, who stood
around with mouths wide open, but
didn't buy tickets. After days of
weary waiting on the part of the
management there came a change in
the public attitude toward the giant
Ferris Wheel. The people had ob
served that a ride on it was a novel
and safe pleasure. Finally, every
body rode, and the day was saved for
the promoters of the scheme. Ever
since the Chicago World's Fair, trav
eling amusement aggregations have
carried a Ferris wheel of some sort.
The Tom W. Allen shows are no ex
ception. The wheel is the very best
to be had. It was built by C. W.
Parker of Leavenworth, Kan., who is
the largest manufacturer of out-door
amusement devices in the world. It
is constructed of the best material
and after tested plans and specifica
tions. It is absolutely safe and is
operated by competent and gentle
manly attendants. From its height
beautiful views of the city may be
had. Take a ride on the Ferris wheel
Sunday, June 17th, will be observed
as memorial day of the I. O. O. F.
order, and services will be held at the
lodge rooms at 2:30. The members
of the Daughters of Rebekah are in
vited to be present. All persons having
flowers for use at the cemetery are
requested to leave same at the hall,

market, Sunday morning before 10
MAKING SOME IMPROVEMENTS.
The Perkins house has added a new
improvement to its equipment in the
shape of a new and strictly modern
ice box that will be used for the pur
pose of caring for the supply of
meats, vegetables and other articles
during the summer months. The ice
box is of the very latest pattern and
especially adapted for hotel use.
