The other day the express company delivered about 120 pounds of books
from Chicago to Lincoln, or rather the Railroad Company which owns the ex
press company allowed a little space in their cars for this package to come from
Chicago to Lincoln. The charges, as you will be surprised to know, were not
75 cents, but they were $3.19. The question for you to decide is why Uncle
Sam who sends mail across the continent cannot send express packages just the
same. The express companies get all they can. Uncle Sam gets a reason

SOUTH LINCOLN PEOPLE TAKE NOTICE
The Express company will riot deliver free beyond A St., and the citizens have been up in arms. They
Want them to deliver to South St. The Commercial Club have been trying to help the people out. The
merchants in South Lincoln have been trying in every way to get butter and eggs, etc. to the people out

people are today, but they have passed by this condition now since they
have a better system of government than our people have.
N Two bodies of legislature and two houses of congress are unnecessary.
The Swiss system of having one is better. The constitution of England is
unwritten and is much better than our constitution which holds the American
people in chains and keeps us behind the times.
Teddy Rosevelt's idea of having more flexible constitutions is, correct.
The Swiss people have a right to veto laws; they do not turn it over to a
supreme court. The American people can learn much from the Swiss people.
Our city fathers have been very good and kind to put, the nice drink
ing fountains along O St. Who ever was so generous as to open up the
little park at the city hall, and allow the chairs to really be used was cer
Is not the system on the street cars of paying as you enter a little better
than never knowing when you are expected to pay? Anyway if we have
the proper kinds of cars does it not show system and a better one.
