CANDIDATE VISITS CITY
Andrew P. Moran, republican can
didate for state senator, was in the
city calling upon the voters. Mr.
Morans making an active campaign
for the nomination, and if nominat
ed and elected, would without a
doubt make a very efficient senator,
lie was Lorn and raised on a farm in
Otoe county and has been in the
active practice of law in Nebraska
City for the past twenty years. He
has always taken an active part in
public ufiairs and is in touch with
the needs and requirements of the
While Mr. Moran has always been
a republican, he is not a blind parti
san and would not hesitate to speak
out his individual opinion even tho
it is in conflict with strict party
ideas. He does not claim to be whole
heartedly in accord with some of the
republican ideas as advanced by the
Inst legislature, and is' opposed to the
attempt to partially repeal the di
re; t primary law. He is" also not ful-
Iv in accord with the so-called code
till. He believes that the people have
o right to elect their own public of
ficers as against the idea of appoint
ments; that public officers salaries
should be fixed, and the amount of
money that they might expend be
designated and that they be requir
ed to give a strict account of the
public funds that come into their
Mr. Moran stands out prominent
ly in favor of law enforcement but
not the enforcement of any one law
to the exclusion of others. He be
lieves that the duties and'responsi-
bility of law enforcement should rest
upon those who seek offices whose
duty carries with it the enforcement
oZ law, and if those officers fail to
do their duty, that they should be
promptly, removed from office. He has
upou his card as a slogan, "Reduce
taxes- by practicing economy, te
lieving that no small amount of the
tax burden comes through the want
of practicing; economy and the care
less expenditure of public money. He
is a firm believer in education and
contends that too much money can
not be expended for that purpose if
expended judiciously. He also favors
good roads by way of permanent im
provement, not to the extent, how
ever, of casting an unnecessary bur
dan upon the taxpayer of today but
that the expense should be taken
care of in such: a way as to be paid
off gradually to the end that no ex
ceptional burden, will be levied upon
the present taxpayer.

Then it is necessary to thin the '

good growing conditions toencourage
the production of runners. The thin

hoe, a spade or a plow. If a hoe Is
used a well established plant is left
every 9 to 12 inches and the others
cut away. Plants are left closer than
they were originally set since they
will not make as good runner growth
the second season as they did the
first. The ground about the plant
should then be hoed to enable the
runners to root readily.
