The Strode people are doing some
tall hustling all over the county, their
scheme being to spread the doctrine
that if Chapman is first choice, Strode
must be second. They reckon on ( bap
man being unable to secure enough
votes to nominate, and that the Cass
delegation will eventually go to Strode,
thus giving hitn the nomination. It
behooves the Chapman forces to keep
their eyes open. A unit rule. such as
Strode secured in Lancaster, u ould be
just the tiling for Chapman in Cass.

John Fitzgerald's lllg Judgment.
The many plaintiffs in the famous
railroad suit of John Fitzgerald and
others against the Missouri Pacific
railway company, says the Lincoln
Journal, have been wondering
whether the railroad company could
appeal the case to the United States
courts. It will be remembered that the
supreme court of Nebraska recently
rendered a decision in this suit, giving
a judgment of almost $800,000 in favor
of the Fitzgerald-Mallory construction
company against the Missouri Pacific
company, and it has been understood
that the individual share of John Fitz
gerald to be derived from the judgment
will amount to between 8:100,000 and
Providing a federal queston is in
volved, the suit may be appealed by
the railroad company, but the plain
tiffs say that the only federal question
involved was decided in favor of the
railroad company, hence no appeal
can betaken, and that the decision of
the Nebraska court is final and the
judgment stands. The federal ques
tion came up in the district court.
The railroad company had agreed to
carry supplies to Colorado for the con
struction company at a nominal cost,
b.it when the interstate commerce law
went into effect the special rate given
by the road was from one-half to two
and one-quarter cents lower than the
law allowed. The district court held
that the special rate contracted for
should stand, but the supreme court
reversed that judgment and held that
the interstate commerce law abrogated
the special rate. By thus deciding it
is claimed by the plaintiffs that the
supreme court cut off every chance of
the Missouri Pacific company to ap
peal to the United States courts.
The Union Ledger is doing some tall
fighting for Judge Chapman, as the
following from this week's issue will
testify: "That J udge Chapm:m should
be the nominee of the republican party
in this congressional district is evident
to every fair-minded person who be
lieves in sending able men to congress.
The democrats will no doubt nominate
a strong and able man; then with
Judge Chapman on the other ticket we
ill be assured of a worthy representa
tive being elected. That J udge Chap
man is the choice of the republican
people of this county is evident from
'the manner in which his name is being
urged by the best element of the party.
V It is true that there are a tew narrow-
minded individuals in this county who
oppose Judge Chapman's nomination,
but such opposition comes from a
source that brands it with the stamp
of jealousy an 1 personal spite. Judge
Chapman is known all over Nebraska
as an able man. learned in the law and
familiar with every duty that devolves
upon a man charged with I lie responsi
bility of serving our people in congress.
It i a burning shame if a few sore
head, would-be politicians shall be al
lowed to create dissension in this
county, and thus throw away the
chance of nominating a Cass county
man. I)nvn with tlie sore-heads, and

The Omaha World-Herald, speak

ufacturers of Nebraska at Nebraska
City a few days ago. says: "The audi

ward, by the way. on another score.
He made an excellent speech, but the
effect of it was somewhat marred by a
little accident. The judge is qnite

Peters of the Bemis Bag factory, used
his thinker and got out a lot of Nebraska-made
napkins On the cor

'Wear K & N. Pants.' K;it Nebraska

similar mottoes It was a rush job
and the ink hail not dried when the
