The fruit stands have left the sidewalks. Why is it the grocery stores do not do the same thing?
What right has any store to infringe on the public sidewalk unless they pay rent to the city for the
sidewalk space? Miller & Paine do not put anything out on the sidewalk space, nor does the Hardy
Furniture Co. It is reported that the Basket Stores are glad and willing to bring in their unsightly
cabbage as soon as the other grocers do if not sooner. The little Greek has been a good citizen in
bringing in his fruit. Why should not the grocery stores do the same.
The courts decided several years ago that the people of Lincoln should have dollar gas. The
gas company, strange to say, have been charging more than this amount. The imposition upon the
people has amounted to probably fifty to one hundred thousand dollars. The gas company must know
that they are bound to lose this suit. Why should not they pay their debts like anybody else? The
mayor of our city has been kind enough to tell the people frankly the truth about the situation. If the
people would follow his advice they would not sign away their rights but would insist upon the dollar
gas. Why should not the municipality of Lincoln own their own gas plant?
The Express (Vs. Are Arbitrary.
The express companies do not deliv
er express beyond A St. There has been
great pressure brought on them by the
people in So. Lincoln. The people in
So. Lincoln pay too much for their eggs
and butter and many other articles that
come by express. Fresh oysters will cost
more south of A street than north of A
"A good wife helps her husband
rather than hinders him."
AGES TOO LOW
Many 'things in groceries are going
higher and higher. Is the price of labor
increasing? Would it not be better for
you to save now and in old age it will
not be necessary.
