Murtcy. the taxpayer:; of Nebraska,

millions of dollars in a sale of the
school lands to be ordered by the
late legislature, which would have
robbed the schools of the Mate, by
the s;-l- of th-s- lands at one-third
less than th-y are worth. .Mr. Mur
fey was just attentive enough to his
duties to nip this glaring fraud in
the bud in the rinsing hour:; of the
!;! legislature. That's the kind of
a representative Casf? rodnty has in
the pep on of Hon. John Murtey.
1'eople of tli i.s conimunity can
well remember the deplorable con
dition of the police department
when Jiilly I.a relay was appointed
Chief of 1'olice. Mr. IJarclay took up
the work of t li I.i (icpartment with
intelligence, energy and enthusiasm
and soon restored order out of chaos.
He will make just as good a herifr
as he has chief of police. We have
nothing derogatory to say of his

the office long enough and a new
man should be given a chance, es

Few people who have not fre
quented the office of the County
Clerk in the past year realize the
vast amount of work which has de
volved upon this office. In addition
to the regular duties of the office,
sufficiently onerous . in themselves,
Mr. I.ibershal. as secretary of the
local draft board, has had to handle
all questionnaires, and everything
pertaining to the draft goes through
this office. This work has requir
ed his attention not only during the
day time but until the late hours of
niuht. For this reason Mr. I.ib-r-shal
has not had the time to make
an active tampaigu. but he deserves
the vote of every patriotic citizen,
irrespective of polities.
LINCOLN'S PEACE EFFORTS.
Lodge's main contention
: ' ins to be that having even ver
bal intercourse with the (Jermr.n
government under any circumstanc
es is a sort of crime. That was not
Lincoln's attitude toward the con
federate government in the civil
war. On July IS, 1SC1, Fresident
Lincoln sent Horace Cnel-y to
Xiagara Falls to meet confederate
commissioners, and Mr. Greeley car
ried this note signed by Mr. Lin
"To whom it may concern: Any
proposition which embraces the re
storation of p-ace the integrity of
the whale nation, and the abandon
ment of slavery, and which comes
by and with an authority that can
eontrol the armies now at war
.'gainst the 1'nited States, will be
received by the executive govern
ment of the Fnited States and will
be met by liberal terms on other
substantial and collateral points.
land the bearer and bearer:; thereof
shall have safe conduct both ways."
Later in ISO!. President Lincoln
in person went to Fortress Monroe
for a conference with an embassy
sent by Mr. Ha vis from Richmond
to discuss possible peace terms. It
miK-t be inferred that, if Mr. Lodge
is consistent, he must think that by
such a-ts Mr. Lincoln placed in dire
jeopardy the union cause. For, now
that the German chancellor publicly
addresses to President Wilson a re
quest that he "take in hand" the
initiation of peace negotiations, the
ienator cond-mns the president for
warily asking two questions bvfore
ho goes a single step farther.
.Mr. Wilson can be comforted by
the thought, that he has done noth
ing more terrible in asking ques
tions of Prince Maximilian than
Abraham Lincoln did in sending
Horace Greeley to Niagara Falls and
then going himself to Fortress Mon
roe to meet confedertc peace com
missioners. Springfield Republican.
LOOTERS FORCED TO LET GO.
Not without reason did the Ger
man high command keep grim hold
as long as possible on Lena. Its cap
ture means coal not only for France,
but for the American and British
France before the war produced
not quite three-fourths of its coal,
mor? than half the home yield com
ing from the Flemish basin, of
which Lens is a vital railway cen-
ter. Exploitation of this basin in
Fronce and Belgium was as much
part of the Prussian scheme of war
threft as the annexation of the Briey
district iron mines.
The western and southern sub
urbs of Lens, including Lievin, have
been in allied hands for months, but
under lire. The capture of Lens
itself releases its very important'
railway junction as well as further
large groups of mines, such as the
St. Auguste, Grand Conde and Avion.
In France once more becoming
mistress of its own resources an ad
ditional proof of the value of the
united command is furnished by
those American 'engineers and min
ing experts who stood ready, in
stantly upon the fall of Lens, to
enter the mines left wrecked by the
retreating Germans and restore them
in the shortest possible time to op
Bringing cheer for the French
winter, aid for war industry and re
lief for tonnage, the capture of
Lens is an event of the highest sig
nificance for the entire future of the
war. New York World.

cratic candidate for representative

and stock raiser and thoroughly un
derstands the needs of an agricul
tural communitv. Mr. Todd ser
vices in the last legislature were a

deserving of re-election.
For the important office of County
Commissioners, the Democrats pre-
sent the names of Mr. Wm. J. Stohl-
man and Mr. J. II. Foreman. Messrs.
St'diiman and Foreman, are progres
s-no, suecessiul and men of wise

During the last session of the
ie-.islat ure. it was universally con
ceded that John Murtey was one of
flic strong figures in the legisla
tive halls. As a usual thing it is im
possible to persuade one of Mr.
Murtey's ability to gtve his time
serving his constituents in the leg
islature, and the voters of Cass
County are indeed fortunate in hav
ing the opportunity to cast a ballot
for a man like John Murtey.
Candidates, seeking to mask their
own inherent lack of capabilities,
very often carry on a campaign by
innuendoes and surreptitious villifi
cation. However, this will not be
effective as regards a sterling Ameri
can such as Mike Tritsch. Mr.
Tritsch is a Nebraska product, born
and raised in Cass County. He is
