The basis of sound government is to see that taxes are never levied upon a people in
amount beyond their ability to pay. Taxes have risen in the past 20 years out of all
proportion to the income of the people of the State of Nebraska. The farmer and
business man MUST have better representation in our legislature if we are to have
economy and efficiency in our state government.

Charles W. Bryan, wlio was for
three terms governor of Nebraska,
now a candidate by petition for the
position, made a visit to Plattsmouth
and Cass county Monday afternoon
to bring his message and the issues
as he has presented them. -
Mr. Bryan has lost none of his
vigor in the years that he has been

presentation of his position and the
issues. The advent of Mr. Bryan into
the campaign has brought out force
fully the fact that he has made the
issue that the other candidates have
had to -contend that of the f 30 old
age assistance and the $5,000 home
Mr. Bryan spoke at an open air
meeting at 5th and Main streets and
in his remarks criticized the present
administration for the large num
ber of persons on the public payroll,
boards and patrols that had been
created in the years since Mr. Bryan
had left office. Mr. Bryan stated that
he expected if elected to eliminate
many of these to cut the state 'ex
pense and reduce it to a figure that
would permit the lowering of the
taxes to the residents of the state.
By economies and the placing of
less of the fund3 In the highway
material and machinery the former
governor would find funds to match
that of the federal government so
that $30 could be paid to the aged
in the state.
The homestead exemption plan
would make it possible for the farm
ers and home owners of the state to
again own and carry on their own
