How about that mass convention to

Both Lincoln and Chicago followed
our oxamplo and elected tho Demo
cratic candidates for mayor.

having conspirod with Nan for tho
murder of Caosar Young.
So far as tho business intorests of
tho city are concerned, tho chango in
tho oillco of mayor will mako little or
no dilforonco. Mr. Dickenson is a
consorvativo business man who has
tho interests of tho city at heart and
will work in harmony with tho strong
council elected to advance those inter
ests E. W Ross retires from tho oillco of
mayor after serving two vory success
ful torms. During his two years' ad
ministration there huvo boon moro
permanent public improvements than
in teu years previous. Tho city's finan
ces are in better condition than they
have been at any timo sinco before the
boom days, and Mr. Ross can surren
der tho oillco with tho knowledge that
his defeat was the result of tho sonti
mout against a third term.
Governor Mickey has vetoed tho bill
providing for the establishment of a
a binding twine plant at tho stato pen
itentiary, for tho alleged reason that
tho proposed bond issuo, to bo taken
up by the pormauont school fund, was
unconstitutional It is to bo regretted
that tho measure has failed. Tho ro
ports from both tho Kansas and Min
nesota ponitentnrios showed that tho
binding twiuo plants at thoso institu
tions woro a sourco of profit to those
states, as well as being tho cause of a
considerable reduction in the cost of
of binding twine to the farmers
Tho election of C. T. Dickenson to
tho ofllco of mayor is a pretty fair in
dication that tho voters do not favor a
third form for that otlle. It also shows
that whon it comes to ti question of
municipal affairs tho voters aro non
partisan, While the city of Red Cloud
is overwhelmingly Republican, Mr.
Die ('ti80ii, who is a Democrat, received
enough Republican votes to olect him
ovor Mayor Ross, the regular Republi
can nominee Tho Republicans have
no one to blamo but themselves for
allowing tho mayor's oillco to slip from
their grasp. Tho voto shows that a
large percentage of tho Republicans
woro opposed to a third term for
Mayor Ross, yet in tho ward caucuses,
whero tho attondauco was barely largo
enough to porfect an organization, tho
opposition to his rouominatton was
vory weak. There aro plenty of good
Republicans any one of whom could
have heon nomiuatqd and eloctod had

REORGANIZATION OF DEMOCRATS
Bryan Explains Recent Activity In
Formation of Clubs.
Lincoln, April 3. "It is a getting to
gether of tho aggrcBsivo elements of
the party In active preliminary work
for tho great battle of 1908," Is tho
way W. J. Bryan explained his recent
i activity In connection with the reor
ganization of tho Democratic nartv.
Mr. Bryan returned from Des Molnos,
and It was with particular reference
to the meeting held there Saturday,
at which ho made tho principal ad
dross, that ho spoke. Mr. Bryan ex
plained that tho Dos Molnos mooting,
like the one held at Topoka, Kan., late
In February, was to further a move
mont for tho organization of Demo
cratic clubs, and thereby place the ma
chinery of the party In the hands of
those who meant It well. In Iowa, he
said, the same plan had been adopted
as In Kansas, with both of which u
was In hearty sympathy.
Mr. Bryan presided last night at the
mooting In St. Paul's Methodist epis
copal churcn, and Introduced Balling

behalf of the Volunteers of America
NOT REQUIRED TO LIVE ON LAND
Important Ruling Made In Klnkaid
Law for Big Homesteads.
O'Neill, Neb., April 5. The ques
tion has been seriously raised as to
whether persons who had already
made proof on their former home
steads, before filing on contiguous
lands under tho Klnkaid law, would
bo required to reside on the addition
al land entered. In order to settle the
matter Judge Klnkaid wrote the com
mlssloner or the general land office
for an opinion. He received a letter
from the assistant commissioner, In
which he quotes section 2 of the act
and adds: "It would appear that the
privilege of entering additional land
under section 2 was given alike to
entrymen who had made final proof
on their original entries and to those
who had not perfected title to the
land formerly entered, If such entry
men still owned and occupied the land
so formerly enteied, and In case final
proof had been made the party would
not be required to move from the land
originally entered to that embraced
In his additional entry, but continu
ous residence on the original entry for
five years after date of the additional
entry and the placing of permanent
Improvements of tho land embraced
In such additional entry of the value
of not less than $1.25 per acre for
each acre Included therein would be
sufficient, if satisfactorily proved with
In the statutory life of the entry."

Cottonwood Palls, a noil-competing oil
market, finds it'-olf paying 23 cents for
oil that can bo bought in Emporia, a
competing town, for 15 cents. Under
tho law, Cottonwood Palls demands
that oil be sold there for fifteen cents
