The influence of evil in high
places is being combated with
greater force at this time than
ever before in the world's history.
The oniy thing America has to
fear is America- Corruption in
oflice does more than rob the
people of their rights , it contami
nates the whole community and
makes for the popularity of evil.
Take Omaha for instance ; its
government has been a govern
ment of tliutrs ever since Frank
Moorcs was first made mayor.
Such men as Tom Dcnnison the
notorious gambler , Vic Walker
the negro politician , and I'at
Crowe the kidnapper , have been
the real government' The inlltt-
i nee of such men has tended to
corrupt the entire city govern
ment. I'at Crowe shot a police
man in Omaha so that for days
his life hung by a thread , an
Omaha jury found h i in not
guilty. I'at Crowe stole the
child of Kdward Cudahy , took
him at night to a lonely forest
and demanded by letter $25,000 ,
of the frantic parentsorhe would
destro } ' the sight of the child.
Rather than submit his child to
such a diabolical maiming the
father left the money at the
point designated by Crowe.
Crowe admitted the commission
of the horrible crime. He wrote
a letter to a priest confessing his
participation in the kidnapping.
Thirty witnesses in the Douglas
county district court last week
testified against him ; the letter in
his own writing was admitted in
evidence and shown to the jury.
Crowe did not go on the stand ,
he did not deny the crime nor
deny the authorship of the letter.
The jury found him not guilty.
Crowe is a hero in Omaha , ac
cording to its standard he has
made good. A precedent has been
set for the other thugs to steal
children of wealthy parents and
extort money from them. We
congratulate Omaha on the re
sult of its vicious citv govern
ment. All hail Pat Crowe , the
hero of the hour , one of Omaha's
most distinguished citizen. If
Pat Crowe had been tried in Rich-
ardssn county before the jury of
the last term of court he would
have received a jolt that would
hold him for a long time , law
and order would have been vindi
cated and the necessity for mob
law would not prevail.
The new board of regents was
organized at Lincoln last week by
the selection of Mr. Ernst as pres
ident. V. G. Lyford of this city
and Fred Abbott of Columbus
were duly qualified as members ,
The wisdom of local republicans
in selecting Mr. Lyford for thu
place was demonstrated at the
first meeting. Many persona
matters came before the board a
the instance of men with axes tc
grind but the Kichardson coun
ty member kept clear of all sucl
matters and voted with the singU
idea of the university's welfare

$300,000. About six years age
the government done S75,00t

sum was spent but only a small
price of work was done. Then
theBurlington has done a great
deal of work both on the easi
side of the River and on the

If the people of Palls City
could only realise what the stub
trains may mean to the town ; if
the men of Falls City could look
into the future and see what the
result of the proper co-operation
of our people in making these
trains pay. will mean to the town ,
they would patronize them when
ever it is practicable to do so.
Those who do know and under
stand have been at the station
every morning and evening to
sec what it is doing and count
the passengers goin and coming.
So far the result has been fair ,
every traveling man is doing his
best for us. Sandusky , Kellar ,
Burgess. Bix.x.y Iw.y , King and
others are doing their best to
show the Pacific that the com
mittee was telling the truth in its
representations. T h e other
towns effected a r e showering
headquarters with protests over
the change accusing the com-
mmittce with dealing in hot air
If Falls City fails it will be Falls
City's own fault. Use the stub
trains. We have something in
sight. It isn't a phantom its
real. Help us get it.
