Plattsmouth at the meeting of that
body demonstrated they knew a good
man when they saw one on the se

the failure of Col. W. R. Young to
secure the nomination because he re
ceived more votes on the republican,
ticket than he did on the progres
sive. The appointment of Mr. Thim
gan to the position, coming with the
full confidence of the progressive
party has been accepted by Mr. Tnim
ga and he will make the race. He
is m. man of much popularity and has
a host of friends, but what will be
the result of hi3 candidacy will have
to be ascertained at the end of the
