Entertainment Course
An Entertainment Course has a certain definite value to a
community worth cultivating though such courses are not per se
intended or expected to be a source of profit financially to individu
als or community They present a quality and character of enter
tainment and education not obtainable through any other source
available to smaller communities more or less remote from large
cities and centers of culture McCook has a distinctive position and
a responsible standing in this part of Nebraska and cannot well
afford to let pass the opportunity Let us give the matter deserved
attention and be in line to take on a course beginning with coming
fall It simply requires the interest of more citizens Can we have
a geuuinelyand actively
i Just Business
Is it true thatthe government of the City of McCook is a mat
ter ol uusiiiess solely A plank in the platform adopted in the city
caucus ol last Friday everting so claims Just sordid business Only
dirty dollars The Tribune thinks not There are moral consider
ations in clean government fie making of just and righteous laws
and their proper enforcement are involved in the matter besides dol
larsjust business McCook needs law enforcement civic purity
more than it needs just business methods of municipal govern
ment Business has its prominent place too
In all matters effecting the public purse the spending of the
peoples money The Tribune has always advocated publicity Not
that we mean to reflect upon the integrity of officials past or present
but simply because we consider that the people are justly entitled to
know how their tax money is expended Not for long would the
people of Red Willow county rest content and satisfied were no pro
ceedings published of the business and accounts of the county It
has never been quite clear to the writer why there should be any
reluctance on part of city or school board to officially publish their
proceedings and to make full financial showings of the public affairs
of the people For several years by caucus resolutions the voters
have expressed their wishes in this matter In the case of city
councils we believe the law is explicitly mandatory about financial
reports The Tribune hopes the board of education will take the
people into their confidence especially as a large and unusual sum
has recently been expended in building a new high school structure

Let the People Rule
The purpose of the initiative and referendum may be expressed
in a few words Let the people rule America is the cbuntry
on the globe in which the people are supposed to make the laws
which govern them The initiative and referendum is designed to
make the rule by the people easier more direct and more effective
Hence it shculd receive the support and votes of all fair and pro
gressive citizens Do the people want a certain action taken in
some important matter if their lawmakers and executives fail or
refuse initiative and referendum provides the people with the means
of securing the relief or change by a direct appeal to the ballot Is
-there some obnoxious or undesirable or dangerous law or ordinance
in force in a city the initiative and referendum offers the people if
they so desire the opportunity of repealing the same Does some
city official fail or decline to do his duty to enfurce the laws or ord
inances he has solemnly sworn to do the initiative and referendum
places it with the people at any time by petition and ballot to rem
ove such official from office li gives the people a direct and effect
ive way of handling its disposal of valuable franchises of voting or
withholding bonds of passing on municipal ownership propositions
etc It is intended to give the people the quick direct and efficient
weapons against corrupt or negligent officials to remedy bad laws
and to enact progressive measures for the common good Of course
lawbreakers those who do want certain laws enforced and those who
commercially or politically profit from both of these classes may not
desire that the people shall be equipped with this powerful instrum
ent but this fact should not blind the people to the value of the law
and should not deter them from securing its benefits When you
vote for city officers April 5th fellow citizens dont fail to vote for
the adoption of this law Remember too that it provides always
that the majority shall rule
Only One Opportunity
Some citizens of McCook are evidently led by the activity of
the saloonmen against the initiative and referendum proposition to
believe that it is the sole and only purpose of this proposed measure
to secure an opportunity to vote on the saloon question Such is
not the case The saloon question is but one of many opportunities
the law affords the people to express by ballot their desires and for
the majority to rule
In the Limelight
In leading to a successful issue the great fight against the house
rules Congressman Norris of this city and of the Fifth Nebraska
district has by one meteoric spurt burst forth into the limelight of
national importance The committee on house rules will hereafter
consist of ten menbers six of the majority and four of the minority
party with the speaker conspicuous for his absence from the com
mittee Few political events in late years measure up tv this one
in importance and intensity of interest The victory came after
days of consuming interest and parliamentary conflict and the end
projected Congressman Norris into the political sky as a star of the
first magnitude and a prominent candidate for advancement
Uncle Joe would doubtless rather be right than on the house
rules committee
Temperance or moral issues of any kind were not mentioned
in either city caucus
Min Hastyis said to be not unwilling to succeed Ed Allen as
postmaster of Arapahoe
After a mild1 bluff at regularity the Democrats in Saturdays
caucus quite dropped the bars endorsing several of Friday even
ings nominees
The larger interest in both caucuses was in the school board
and we believe women voted for the first time in a McCook caucus
on school board nominees of course
The resolutions adopted by last Friday evenings caucus and
the fact that man Democrats participated in the caucus without
objection places the city campaign again where it has been for years
entirely outside political or partisan lines
Since Bryans pronunciamento in favor of county option Gov
Shallenbarger seems to less and less in love with the idea Well
if the governor wants to line up with Mayor Dahlman and his tribe
he will lose more than his self respect and record
With the certainty of the nomination for congress an increas
ing call to stand for the United States senatorship others suggesting
his special fitness for governor of Nebraska and now still others in a
wider circle mentioning his name in connection with the presidency
it is all well calculated to carry off his feet our townsman Congress
man Norris He doubtless is familiar with the wooden horse of the

Salem Ore Sept 19th Special
The Willamette Valley peach crop is a
revelation this yenr even to the growers
who are accustomed to big crops and
big profits In the orchard of Alexand
er Lafollette in the Mission Bottom
country north of Salem the yield is so
heavy that it was necessary to place
hundreds of props under the trees to
keep the branches from breaking off
Lafollette picked 2000 boxes from 87
trees thiB year and his son Clyde at
Wheatlandon the west side of the river
has 15 acres which brought him in this
year about 1000 an acre
W H Eagan a veteran grower fre
quently has peaches on the market for
four months during a single season by
growing several varieties His crop this
year is large W Al Jones will have
about 7000 boxes and the price will av
erage better than 8100 a box
William Wright last year cleared
31500 off 10 acres of peaches the first
crop from the trees The acreage of
peaches is increasing faster relatively
than that of any other fruit grown in
this section L n McMahan is setting
thousands of young trees on the old
