Patriots Hear and Heed.
To all those who read and reflect as I
have always tried to do, I wish to say a
few words, or give expression to some
thoughts which at this hour in our
na ion's history strike me with force;
and I ask all you who read to give them
careful thought; for to mo they seem
The father of this republic gave to
us, through their toil and suffering, an
independent form of government, the
territory on which it was established
having been wrested from the foreign
oppressor by force of arms.
The basis of the government thus
given to us was that grand and noble
truth "equality to all men under the
law and equal rights to all men by the
In pursuance of this righteous princi
ple the fathers gave us that grand in
strument which we call the constitu
tion which guarantees to every citizen
whether he be born in this land or ad
op'ed by virtue of our naturalization
laws, equal right to life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness, and als secures
each in his right to worship God in his
own way acording to the light he
To my comrades in arms who with
me took the oath of allegiance in en
listing ti fight the battles of that terri
ble civil wr, I want to say a few words.
Let me ask you how nparly in accord
with the constitution is the system of
finance through which a circulating
dare you, in face of your sacred oath,
vote to sustain in power those who
trample it in the dust and violate
it in every act of legislation?
Dare you by thus disregarding your
oath invoke the wrath of that God be
fore whom that sacred obligation was
taken? If you do you and, yours must
suffer that wrath for it will surely
Now to all citizens alike let mo ap
peal in all candor: we are brethren.
Can we violate our iacred obligation to
God, ea?h other, and future genera
tions, so far as to approve by our vote
any party which openly tramples under
foot the sacred principles which under
lie oar government, which violates the
very instrument which we all swear
when taking any oath of office to sup
port and which it is our sacred duty as
citizens to guard and maintain?
I charge upon men who have made
our national laws in the past t venty
five years a gross violation of the c -n-stitntion
and challenge them to dis
prove the charge.
Let us as men think carefully on the
conditions surrounding us, and as men
and brethren decide that ws will stand
together to redeem our sacred pledges
to the constitution, seek to reform the
unjust laws which have been forced
upon us, and enact in their stead such
as will give equal rights to all and
special privileges to none, and God will
approve our action and bless us in eur
endeavors. A. C. Fendersos.

The ease with which the Omaha can
be operated is marvelous The power,
the principal part of a hay pre63 is a
combination of scientific principles,
and so well associated aro they that
they work in perfect harmony and make
the draft so light that one good horse
is sufficient to do heavy proving. The
press being made of steel and iron 19 a
sufficient guaranico of its durability,
coupled with the further fact that it is
pat together in the most thorough

is used; case hardened steel pins, Nor
way iron steel rivets and bolts and all
other fittings of the highest grade.
Tho power consists of a cam, two rol
lers and a lever. Tho lever Is operated
by a roller on tho bottom of the cam
and attached t tho pitman at the outer
end giving the pitman a throw ol
twenty four inches at which time cam
has taken up roller on the end of the
pitman and tho lever ceases to work;
thus instantly changing tho power
from a quick motion, whilo the hay is
loose, to a slow poweiful motion as the
hay becomes more compact. These
are only a few of the many excellent
joints of -the Umaha. Write.the maou-

Dear Sir: I wish through the
columns of your paper to correct the
statement made in the Sioux County
Journal concerning the treatment of
THE OMAHA HAY PRESS.

How nearly in accord with the con
stitution guaranteeing equal rights to
all men, are the acts of congress chart
ering our great national highways to
c jrporations whereby an excessive toll
is placed on our products for transporta
tion? How nearly in accord with the con
stitution are any of the laws giving ex
press advantages to any class or calling
over the masses of the people?
gHow does our quiet acquiescence in
repeated violations of the constitution
by our law makers agree with our oath
taken with uplifed hand to God in the
presence of our fellows appear to him
before whom that oath was taken, and
how shall we answer to him for viola
ting our vow?
Can we longer vote to sustain an
empty name and thus trample in the dust,
the vow we have made? Think care
fully and reflect candidly then answer
as you must for your action.
To those citizens of this great re
public who are citizen's by adoption
only, allow me to say: You probably
took the oath of allegiance not know
ing what you did.
Your leaders being anxiou9 to use
y(.u as tools to elevate them to place
and power by your votes did not care
whether you k'new the force of your act
or not, so as they could get power over
you. And they have not cared for your
welfare but only to advance their own
You, by taking the oats of 'allegiance,
are a? bound to maintain the constitu
tion as I who was born under it,' and
you owe to its maintenance your all.
You are, by virtue of your oath taken
with uplifted hand, bound before God
to sacrifice your life, your wealth, jour
honor, if need be, in its malntainanco
and defence, and will you, can you,

We would respectfully call the atten
tion of our readers to the Omaha Hay
Press. The Martin & Morrissy Mfg.
Co., of Omaha are tho makers. Many
there are who have used nearly every
make of Hay Press during the last
twenty years and when they ran
through the list found there was still
much room for improvement in them.
The demand for a press that would fill
the requirement of the expeiienced
baler has caused the Omaha to be built
aud offere 1 to the public. There is no
longer any question as to tie material
to use in the construction of Hay Press
es. Steel and steel only is the verdict
of all. The press that will do the best
work is tho first consideration, next
ease of operation on men and horse3,
and next durability. Toese are ques
tions every intending purchaser of a
Hay Press must consider. The manu
facturers of' the Omaha make the broad
claim that they have The Best Hay
Press, and give the following reasons
in justificition of it:
They claim first that their press does
the finest and smoothest baling by rea
son of a folder that folds each charge
of hay so perfectly that it is difficult to
tell which is top or which is the bottom
of the bale Second that by reason of
the herculean power which presses the
bale so tight that an auger hole miy
be bored into it. Third, that by reason
of a s'eel electric tenirn which is so
arranged that it causes the bale case to
form the most perfect bale and is pro
vided with a sprint? that allows the rear
end of tying chamber to expand when
a wet charge of hay is fed through it.
State Superintendent Goudy at the
Custer County institute.
When Superintendent Goudy visited
the teacher's institute at Broken Bow
last summer he was cordially received.
The county superintendent met him
in a friendly manner and introduced

There were, at the time, several
school directors waiting to see the
county superintendent, and ho re
quested mp, as conduc'or of the insti
tute, 1o introduce Mr. Goudy to the
teacher i and make it. pleasant for him.
As soon as the morning exercises
were over, I asked Mr. Goudy to talk
to the teachers and he consented to do
so. I then f ot mally introduced him to
the institute as the superintendent of
public instruction of Nebraska.
Mr. Goudy remained in the institu'e
during the morninjf session visiting
classes and meeting the te ichers.
In the afternoon Mr. Goudy was
present and I again requested him to
address tho teachers which he con
sented to do Mr. Goudy remained
through the day v'siting chases and
was personally introduced to a large
nurnbe rof teachers.
At the close of the work he expressed
himself tome as highly pleased and
Mr. Goudy certainly has no cause to
complain of his reception and treat
ment while visiting the teachers' in
stitute at Broken Bow last summer.
It is shameful that irresponsible
persons presuming to be friends of Mr.
Goudy and of education should make
such ' false statements for newspaper
gossio. Very truly,
