THE new war revenue bill went

requirements is the tax on bank

you cannot secure the regular

meanwhile , as the government will
provide the regular revenue stamps
as fast as they can be printed.

THE Republicans of McCook
and vicinity should turn out in
large numbers to the meeting an
nounced to be held in the city hall ,
tomorrow evening , for the purpose
of reorganizing the McCook Re
publican club. It is important
that McCook be well represented
in the state meeting to be held in
Omaha on the evening of July 12 ,
and the local club should be thor
oughly reorganized for that pur
pose and to that end. The national
meeting of Republican clubs will
be held in Omaha on the 14th.
This will be an impressive gather
ing of Republicans from all over
the country , and a source of inspi
ration for the coming campaign.
AT the head of this column may
be found a copy of the call for the
state convention to be held in Lin
coln , Wednesday , August 10. This
will be one of the most important
conventions ever held by the Re
publicans of Nebraska. Wisdom
and harmony should prevail.
Strong and honorable men should
be placed in nomination. Let the
rank and file of the party look well
to the primaries and county con
ventions. Send representative men
to the state convention as dele
gates. Men with wisdom enough
to act and character enough to act
independently. A state ticket of
good men placed in nomination by
such men will win out in Novem
IT is complained that the Trans-
Mississippi exposition lacks proper
and wide-spread advertisement. If
such is the case it is not the fault
of the country yokels of Nebraska ,
who have well discharged their
duty in this regard despite the fact
that they have not been treated
with the consideration they deserve
by the department of publicity.
Every loyal Nebraskan should
make it his personal duty and priv-
ile e to spread abroad the news of
the fact and the attractions to be
seen. The exposition is a glorious
reality and its success means not
only great things for Nebraska but
for the entire west. Let no one
sulk in his tent because he is not
in love with the head of the depart
ment of publicity or of any other
department. Its the west's expo
sition , i

THE FAMOUS CLOTHING COMPANY
The coming Fourth of July will ushei
in the I22d anniversary of the Declara
tion of Independence which made a new
nation out of the the thirteen original
colonies. Each recurring year as we re
cede from the scenes that gave our na
tion birth we find new cause for con
gratulation and rejoicing.
The declaration that all men are
created free and equal before the law ,
kindles in the hearts of men a new am
bition to make that declaration a con
dition rather than a theory. The his
tory of noble deeds and self-sacrificing
patriotism of our forefathers shines forth
in letters of living light.
The noble daring of these men have
found emulation in their sons , whose
dauntless courage on land'and sea is the
wonder and admiration of the civilized
We do but honor ourselves when we
celebrate the day that gave birth to our
nation. It is but meet and right that
the merchants and other business nitn
lay aside their daily avocation and as
sist the committee of arrangements in
making this celebration a complete
success. It is expected that the busi
ness men will meet their customers and
help entertain them on that day.
Therefore it is earnestly requested
that all places of business in the city be
closed between the hours of ir a. m.
and 5 p. m. and that each and every one
may participate in the greatest of all
celebrations. Let the flags be unfurled
and the houses duly decorated.
