It i3 now an assured fact that Henry

"The national banking system is a
cancer upon the body politic, and
nothing but the horoic method of cut

Toe best argument in favor of Ku

is the fact that he is opposed by that

The republicans in the Kentucky
legislature are about to inaugurate
Czar Heed tactics, and by unseating
democratic members on trumped-up
charges, electa senator over Joe Black

be sure to hang themselves.
Ik Frank Morgan can be persuaded
to make the race for mayor, he will
have no trouble in being elected. The
people are anxious for a change in the
administration of city affairs and Mr.
Morgan is just the man wanted at the
head of the city government.
All honor to Senator Thurston for
his magnificent argument in support of
the Monroe doctrine. As a democrat
the Times wants to be first to pay trib
ute to a republican senator when he
doe3 his duty by talking true patriotism
within the legislative halls. God grant
that some day this same Thurston,who
now fawns like a puppy at the feet of
his railroad masters, may throw off the
shackles which bind him, and that then
he may employ his great powers in be
half of the common people. Papillion
The advocates of the single gold
standard, with an egotism that belies
its purpose, delight to call themselves
-sound money" men. That term, as
applied to them, is a falsehood and a
fraud. The single gold standard is
even now toppling to its fall, and is the
most unsound system the adoption of
which w is ever contemplated. It means
the impoverishment of the masses by
the enrichment of the classes iu fact,
the overthrow of a republican govern
ment in this country.
Secretary Carlisle has set the
mints at work coining standard silver
dollars. Just why he wants to coin
more of what he and other goldbugs
call 50 cent dollars is more than we
can understand; as it is well known
that (trover and all the rest have kept
up a continual harping about there be
ing more silver than they knew what
to do with. Even oar own secretary of
agriculture wanted it sold for old junk.
Now the mints are to coin more of it.
Such consistency. Crete Democrat.
Xe'ijraska is for McKinley, for
Thuiston himself ha3 said it. For
four years Nebraska republicans have
been insisting that the next republican
candidate for president must be a
western man, an advocate of western
interests, but when the Union Pacific
senator bids the rabble be still it
straightway hushes its huzzas for a
western man and joins its voice with
Monopoly John in advocacy of a candi
date who will be acceptable to the
east. It i3 only natural that Thurs
ton should favor an eastern man. In
deed nearly all owners of Union Pacific
stock reside in the east. Papillion
Senator Tillman gave the dry
bones of goldbugism a severe shaking
tip in the senate last Tuesday, and
not only was Cleveland and his judas
like cabinet given a sound roasting.
but the hypocrisy of republican pre-1
tense was exposed to the light of day.
It was by oaas me aoiest speecu oi me j
. ? n .1 ntnnarl it a o utliftp t A I
session, and placed its author well to
the front, not only as a leader of
thought and a powerful orator, but as
the man since Ingalls' time possess
ing the greatest power of invective, in
the senate. He talked plainly and
called things by their right names, and
in;words of burning eloquence painted
the brand of Cain upon the brows of
the president and his cabinet members
who bad betrayed the people to the
money-kings of Xew York. It was a
most notable speech which ought to be
read by everybody.
TIIE CITY'S FUTURE.
The recent meeting of the Board of
Trade was the starting point for the
inauguration of business revival in this
ifv At. that meetinc a full and rai
expression of sentiment in favor
I united action looking toward the loca
I tion of new industries in our city was
had and an earnest effort will be made
in that direction. It were a waste of
time and space to enter into, anew
th advantages of Plattsmouth foi
these are all well known. The move
ment in tavcr of a beet sugar factory
is a wise one, as the country around
the city is well adapted to sugar beet
culture, and the superior distributinj
advantages would make this faeloiy s
cnfrt T.pt thf business men iuak
this factory a success. The proposa
to establish a college is one well
worthv of consideration. A college
means a considerable addition to tl
population of the city during the schoo
vear. and serves to increase the amount
of money in circulation. In this man
ner it is a benefit to a community ii
addition to its elevating inlluence in ai
educational line. The prospects for ;
government building while not th
brightest, are still within the range o
possibilities, and no effort should be
spared to obtain this building if pos
sible. The move for a new opera
house is another that deseives en
i'iinr:ii'pmpnr. Plattsmouth needs a
opera house, probably worse than an
city in the state. Such a buildin
would be a success if properly managed
as this city is one of the best show
towns in the state, and the people will
patronize a good play iouse. Another
matter that the Board of Trade had
under advisement was the location o;
abrsmch factory of an Indiana firm
This firm manufactured sheet meta
tanks and was desirous of locating
here. It would eniplov about fom
men and would be a solid institution
It rviifht to he secured. From all this
array of enterprises it would seem
that a little energy is all that is needed
to make a step forward during the
coming year. This is not the time to
waste energy iu theorizing but it is the
hour for action. The great trouble in
thiscityhas always been the useless
and extravagant amount of talk and
inaction and if this city is to progress
it must drop this method and ami go
to work. Prosneritv comes only to
those who help themselves, and it is a
foolish policy that causes people to sit
and cry over the mistakes of the past.
All that has happened is done, and we
must gather together what we have
ieft and make an united effort to
remedy tl e errors. Let all our people
pull together with the one central
idea of the common good and the suc
cess of the city's future is assured.
I I IK CIT CAMiMlltN.
The near approach of the spring
election has caused the appearance of
many booms for city positions. In a
great measure thi3 is due to the fact
that this year seems to be propitious
to the democracy. The trend of pub
lic sediment seems favorable to the
democratic Dartv. especially in this
city, upon local issues. For two years
Plattsmouth has struggled along under
the adverse inlluences of a narrow and
partisan administration. To all fair,
thinking people it appears that the
time for a broader and more liberal
policy has arrived, and upon this theory
will the next democratic city ticket te
For the mayoralty, Frank J. Morgan,
John A. Gutsche and Henry It. Gering
are being pushed by their friends. The
nomination of any of these gentlemen
means victory. They are all free
hearted and liberal in their views and
would give the city a clean and credit
For city clerk, Thorn: Walling,Frank
Green and D. C. McEntee are men
tioned, and better men could not be
named. Either of these gentlemen
would add stiength to the ticket.
For city treasurer, Chas. D. Cum
mins, Henry II. Gering, Fred Ebinger
and D. C. McEntee are being consid
ered and the nomination of either of
these gentlemen will meet popular ap
proval. Judge Archer appears to have no op
position for the nomination for police
judge and his re-election is a foregone
On the republican side, the present
city administration appears to be sure
of re-nomination and either T. Frank
Wiles or A. J. Graves will, probably,
struggle to capture the judgeship.
The populists will probably run a
f ull ticket and may poll fifty votes in
Taken, as a whole, there is a splen
did prospect for democratic success
Men who would deliberately bring
ruin upon millions of their fellow-men,

men by declaring themselves for
"sound'' money, when they know it is
all a hypocritical pretense and a lie;
that their scheme is inaugurated to
make slaves of the masses while the
few can revel in the luxury of un
bounded wealth. But the people may
awake in time to prevent their sch me
from succeeding. !
Tuk republicans are proc tding to '
go through the usual formula of ar
rangements for the coming presiden
tial election, and while theie i.s up
parently some rivalry between favorite j
candidates this is about all the evi
dence of interest or anything ap
proaching enthusiasm that can be
uoticwd. The tact is the hope that a
high tariff which is about all there is
of republican spirit left would bring
again prosperity, has almost died in
the republican heart, and were it not
for the hope of office very little interest
could be worked up among the repub
licans of Nebraska.
Tiik national banks have been send
ing to the treasury offers to buy bonds
under the proposed new loan in won
derful amounts, indicating that they
have been storing crold for sotih pur
pose not required in their business.
These banks have little or no money to
loan to help ordinary business, but
when a chauce is given to secure a ro
year bond, with the hope of making
them the basis of circulation for a
greater issue of their own notes, the
?old comes out of its hiding place.
The national banks are the meanest
combinations of political power in all

Milton Campbell and two females
