Falls City's Needs.
Falls City is a mighty good
town , but it can be made n great
What it needs is a little more
enterprise and a little less knock
What is the matter with a Sat
urday afternoon band concert ?
Why can't we have seats and
resting places in the court house
Why not let the rural telephone
companies do business here ?
Many farmers will cut out the
mail order houses if wo show
them we are willing to do the
Why not stop the gambling
here , not by appealing to the
governor and thus advertising
our present immorality , but b } *
making the proper complaints to
Mr. James , the county attorney ?
James has shown a disposition
to measure up to the duties of
his office and is one law officer
who is not bound hand and foot
b * anti-election .
} - promises.
The Tribune feels that all law
ful business should be encouraged
so long as it remains a lawful
business and is conducted in a
lawful way. We do not feel ,
however , that gambling , which
is an unlawful business , should
be permitted in this city. That
there arc gambling rooms here
nobody dares dispute. The law
officers of this city have taken an
oath to enforce the law. Why don't
they do it ? It will help our town ;
it will m.'ike it a more inviting
place for people seeking a home
in which to rear and educate
children. It will make Falls
City a good place in which to
These are among Falls City's
Will someone please invent a
bugless porch light ?
If you know of a friend or
neighbor who does not take The
Tribune , give him your copy this
week and ask him the question :
Is it worth a dollar a year ?
The Tribune believes that the
county board did just right
in giving the News the tax list.
It is the paper representing the
political sentiment of the major
ity of the board , and does the
work for one-half the money the
law would give it. It tlie time
comes , as it surely will , when the
board is republican , The Tribune
will expect and will doubtless be
given the work. The poor news
paper man is entitled to some
consideration , and we are glad
that the board has done the right
thing with the tax list.
The candidacy of V. G. Lyfortl
for regent is meeting with an en
thusiastic reception , not alone in
Richardson county , but througl
the state at large. Letters havt
been received from some of tin
most prominent politicians am
university men iti the state prom
ising their assistance and co-oper
ation. The southeast corner o
the state sends more than its ful
proportion of students to th
state university , and it has neve
had representation on the boar
of regents. The time has com ;
for this corner to be recognize
and Mr. Lyford is eminent ! ,
fitted to be the candidate throng !
whom recognition will come.
Xevc-r in the history of Kich-
anlson county has tlicre been a
crop prospect equal to the pres
ent. A drive through the sev
eral precincts in the east end
discloses the most wonderful view
that anyone could desire. Corn
is king , and during this season is
the worst tyrant extant. The
farmers arc giving1 the monarch
the proper attention , however ,
and the winter will find Richard
son county in a more prosperous
financial condition than ever be
fore in its history. The Tribune
predicts for the Falls City mer
chants the best trade they have
ever had , for the Richardson
county farmer more of comfort
and enjoyment than has been his
lot heretororc. "For these and
all thy blessings may the Lord
make us truly thankful. "
A street fair is a consumate
nuisance , of course , but it is lots
of fun for tin1 children. There is
something about the glare of
lights , the hoarse voice of the
barker , the moving crowd that
appeals to a child. While the
management of the company now
exhibiting in Falls City is every
thing that could be desired , and
has given the people a clean en
tertainment , this is probably the
last street fair that Falls City
will see. They are going out of
date. Cities like Beatrice , Hast
ings and Grand Island refuse
them the rights of the principal
streets , and charge them as much
as $1,000 , to show on the back
streets. Falls City will eventu
ally do the same , and these inin-
ature Coney Islands will pass us
up. Then will the voice of the
speeler and the hot tomalic man
pass into silence unwept , unhon-
ored and unsung.
