A Great Need

sold upon tho Chicago Board of Trade
during tho month of Juno Only ono
car graded No 1 only 772 cars or loss
than 10 per cent graded good enough
for No 2 2873 cars or about 3G per
cent graded No 3 3872 cars or nearly
one half of tbo entiro amount graded
No i and 400 cnrs were of such poor
quality that no grade was attached
This evidence shows tbo great need for
grain improvement Tho grain dealer
and tho receivers in the markets are
anxious to lend assistance
This great cereal exposition enterprise
is not confined in its element of educa
tion training and advantage to ono
class of persons representing a single
industry such as the growing of crops
It extends in its general scope of in
fluence to ovory business and industry
carried on by man In fact it appeals
to tho appetite of every human being
for endorsement of better food products
better living and a fuller compensation
for labor performed
Tho grain dealers of tho United States
are a recognized strong and influential
class of business representatives In
recognition of their business relution to
this great cereal exposition and their
interest in its success and permanent
influence for better grains and larger
crops the management has planned for
a grain dealers day and will arrange
for excursions from all parts of the
country The entertainment that will
be provided for this occasion and the
completeness of arrangements in gen
eral is a guarantee that thousands of
leading grain men of tho country will bo
in attendance

at JFortunntely tho firo was discovered
before much headway had been made
by the flames else the damage might
have been serious

on the street here this evening The
crowd was about equally divided be
tween the Republicans and Democrats
He claimed the credit of giving Ne
braska the 2 cent passenger rate He
said the time is ripe for Democratic vic
tory because a panic always brought
about a change in administration and
that the Democrats were just entering
upon forty eight years of power Spe

To The Voters Of The 29th Senatorial
Tho Hon John C Gammill of Fron
tier county has consented to become a
candidate for senator It is not a mat
ter of his seeking but a matter of yield
ing to tho wishes of his friends who are
desirous of seeing that important office
filled by an honest and capable man
who will bo a credit and an honor to our
people I have personally known Mr
Gammill for over twenty years and I
havo yet to meet a moro courteous gen
ial honorable and manly man than I
have found in him
Ho was a Captain in tho Civil War
and is ono of a comparatively few of tho
survivors of that contest still young
enough and vigorous enough to respond
to the call of the public His years are
resting lightly upon him his heart is
young and he retains his military
He has beon a resident of Frontier
county for a quarter of a century whore
he can safely claim that everyono is his
friend They like him for his rugged
honesty his gonial companionship and
his true western hospitality for his
door has never been closed to the way
farer A farmer and ranchman during
all of these years he is a true represent
ative of the large majority of tho voters
of his district
In national politico at least he has
always been republican He was a keen
admirer of Blaine a most loyal support
er of McKinley while Roosevelt chal
lenged his perfect approval He was
chairman of his home delegation in the
state convention that nominated Norris
Brown and Governor Sheldon and sup
ported both Further evidence that he
belongs to the progressive element of
his party is unnecessary
If elected he will be a senator who
will be warmly welcomed by Governor
Sheldon or any Governor having a simi
lar policy for they would at once recog
nize in him one who would not have to
be watched one who would be a true
loyal and capable supporter not only
upon the floor where all are exposed to
the public gaze but in the secrecy of
the committee room where the real
work is dono and where tho knave dis
plays his hand He is a good public
speaker with a direct concise style that
carries conviction and commands recog
My purpose in preparing and publish
ing this communication is to contribute
what I can to securing a senator from
this district who will faithfully and con
scientiously represent its people and
interests I publish this at this time
that all who desire may verify my state
ments before casting their votes

Street Lighting Situation
While tho council has not as yet de
finitely settled the matter it looks as
though both gas and electricity would
bo used in lighting the city While tho
city has contracted with tbe gas comp
any for 75 GOcandle power lights at
200 per light per month amounting
to 1800 annually it is understood that
on Main avenue at least several arc elec
tric lights would bo retained These
cost 9 per month While it is claimed
the city will be much better lighted un
der this arrangement the total cost too
will be materially greater amounting
to about 2200 annually as against
about 1500 as at present

Political Conference at McCook
Earnest enthusiasm marked tho con
ference held here Tuesday between
Chairman Hayword and tho county
chairmen of this section of Nebraska
From the views of those present tho
conference developed tho fact that a
strong Taft sentiment is steadily grow
ing in this section of tho state and that
tbe Bryan onthusiasm which formerly
characterized tho campaigns of tho Fair
viow statesman is noticeably absent
This lack of tho usual Bryan senti
ment was attributed by tho county
chairmen present to the weakness of
tho Democratic candidato which was
also responsible for the increasing
sentiment for Taft The Republicans
of this part of tho state are well satis
fied with the progress of tho campaign
The day was spent in tbo exchanga ot
suggestions between Chairman Hay
wood and tbe county leaders This
conference which was tho second will
bo followed by a third which will con
vene in Hastings Wednesday Among
those in attendance Tuesday were
Chairman Haywood W J Hopper of
