John Kleher. a hri.-f account of
whose death is n'sev. here mentioned,
was one of iod's nook-men an honest
man. He lonp; Jived in ( 'ass county to
adorn its cil i.enship an 1 help others
uhoat him while h'-w in out a success
in life. ISui for his retiring m(.;les!y
he would have teen far more promi
nent than he was. Iforn. reared and
married in d'ermany, many years ao
he bought and ever since lived upon
the farm upon which he died, rearing
an excellent family all of whose mem
lie rs arc like their parents, devoted to
order, industry aud correct deport-
nient. His home was a model of neat-
ness. cleanliness and good manage
ment. Hisexamplcin life was a worthy
one, and all who know him respected
him in lifeas't hey will revere his mem
ory now that he lias j,'oiie to his re
ward, l'eace t his ashes.
As to the New Road.
Many of the ieople of our county are
pretty well wrought tip over the idea
of the projected Kansas and Southern
railroad which the promoters say they
intend running through Cass county
in the air line route from Enijioria to
Omaha. Many are favorahle, many
are opposed to the road.
Jt is a Kansas scheme from start to
finish promulgated ostensibly to free
Kmioria from the burden of discrim
inating freight rates in favor of Kan
sas City. Uut when the promoters
come into this state Jliey are shrewd
enough to put this tr gument into the
background and advance the plea that
they are moved almost solely by the
unseltish desire to turn the volume of
Iraflicand business from Kmioriaand
vicinity to Omaha and intermediate
Admitting for the moment all repre
sentations of material benefit to the
v-eople concerned, where is the real as
surance that the road can ever be built
and operated by an independent com
pany. In the lace of the gigantic
deals and consolidations in railroads
and tran.s-cont ii.eiital svstems, in this
day when millions are poured out like
the Hi Kid tide of a river for the purRse
of destroying t roiiblesomecom petition,
where are the promoters disinterested
enough to work for the interestsof the
leople, honest enough to briKik the
temptation to sell out to greedy cor
porations, shrewd enough to meet
trickery with countervailing strategy,
fearless of threats and with the power
to stand against the crushing sweep of
organized billions? And where are the
people who. even though they might
be led to have faith in the integrity
ami singleness of purpose of the pro
moters, rou'. l vet brintr themselves to
a state of confidence in their ability to
do what they propose.
Kveii though the people at the ter
mini and along t he proposed right of
way should be induced to vote lionds
f..r the new project: even though the
construction of the rate smashing line
should really progress beyond the pre
liminary surveys t an actual begin
ning up hi the ro.,d bed, the only pre
cedent hi history for its future is a
gobbling tip by .-o'lie big system with
whose monopoly and business the new
line liiiLTht interfere hould solemnly
sworn art icl'-sof incorporation prevent
a selling owl and ruive surety of the
completion of the line there would
yet be ways and means sufficient for
the road to pass into the big hands of
the consolidation even before the new
line bad made so much as a rate upon
a pound of d.ad freight
It is in no wise intended to cast as
persio:i upon t he motives of the prom
inent public men lehind this enter
prise. Their intentions and purposes
may le of the best. Where unscrupu
lous men miht promote and sell out
for tiieir own st ilish gain, honest men
might promote and !w forced to give
up for the gain of the combine which
squeezes. In either instance the ei
pie stand to lie ch ated.
liut even though Kansas might Ik?
Unctitted if the road could Ik-built
and operated independent ly of t he high
taritrofotherroads.it is dmihtful if
there is am t bin! in the project to at
tract the jieople of 'ass county, and
especially those who live in the smaller
country low us. , north and south

Weeping Water means the building of
new towns and a consequent loss to
neighboring villages U.th cast and
west. As far as can 1-e learned every
town within the territory which would
. affected is opposed to the idea.
Such towns as Weeping Water. Mur
ray. Mynard, Mauley, and Louisville
all feel that they must suffer in their
business" and prosperity from the con
traction of their trade zones.
While a few farmers believe that the
road would be a gHKl thing for them,
there are others w ho are close st udents
of pract ical polit cal economy who ap
preciate that country towns are sup
ported and maintained by t he farmers,
the real producers, ami that while
these same country towns are good in
their " way, more than are necessary
and needed for facilitating transporta
tion ami expediting trade are use
less, and a drag and burden of expense
to the community which supports
them. Cass county is already pretty
well Tilled with towns, they argue, so
much so in fact that t here isatisolutely
no call for the establishing of half a
dozen new stations unless for the sake
of cutting up some good rich farms in
to worthless suburban lots.
The lemis Omaha I tag company de
serves credit ;ind praise for the man
ner in which it treats itslarge forceof
employes. All during the winter
weekly dancing classes for the benefit
of the employes have been held in one
of the large clear roomsof the factory,
the company bearing the expense of
hiring an instructor. A free gymnas
ium has also been maintained by the
company, "Which contemplates putting
in a ''good substantial library and read
in'g room for the benefit of the work
men and women. It is not likely that
the r.emis concern will ever be t roubled
with strikes or lockouts so long as it
maintains its present policy. It has
effectually solved for itself the vexing
Apparently moie deadly than war,
famine and iestilence is being
elected to tho congress of the United
States. The mortuary record of the
late With Congress is something aston
ishing. Iletwccn the time of the elec
tion of its members aud its close three
senators and fifteen members of the
nouse resigned their office to death.
In addition to this, three members
were sent to special hospitals on ac
count of brain failure. What was the
cause? We don't know, but many of
us are convinced that there were many
members of that congress who never
hurt themselves by close application
or overwork in the fulfillment of their
For Supreme Judge.
Out in the state the republicans are
lixing everything to give Judge Sedge-
wick, of York, .newly appointed su
preme court commissioner, the nomi
nation for supreme judge. In the im
mediate vicinity of Judge Sedgewick's
home there is a democrat who with
the assistance of his immediate friends
is working as industriously for the
nomination for himself. Hut this man
is not ttie man tor me niace. lie ians
to carry with him the confidence and
support of his own locality. He is a
weak man, and would be defeated on
the day of his nomination.
The occasion, the hard light which
promises to be made for the election
of the supreme judge, and the import
ance of the result in its bearing upon
the future political completion of the
state demands that the democrats
nominate one of their best men if they
would hope to see their candidate
seated upon the bench.
Now if the democrats 'wish to find
favor in the eyes of a large and loyal
constituency and lie-stow merited re
cognition where little has been shown
for some time, they will lKk toward
ad suprme judge
Cass county for their candidate. Ut
terly ignored for some time past in the
way of nomination or appointments,
the democrats of this county feel tnat
the time lias come when they have a
right to demand something, and ask
that the favors le passed around.
As to the man, there naturally comes
to mind one who is known all over the
state as a capable and skillful at
torney, a man whose naturally judi
cial turn of mind would make him a
just and upright judge, and one
learned in the law through his extens
ive reading, a man distinguished by
the esteem and warmest regard of the
community in which lie lives, a man
among men, a true democrat, and al
ways one of the hardest workers for
the success of his party. That man is

Governor Savage is having a taste
of the joy of being a governor. Out at
Sargent lie is trying to build a home
for himself. His duties to himself and
family seem scarcily less pressing than
those of an official nature, yet when
his daily mail is brought in by the bar
rel the govercor-to-le is compelled to
let his house building go by the board,
and without the assi.stance of a steno
grapher, run through and answer with
bis own band the urgent of his corre
spondence. Why, if there were
