W. VV. Abbey lias lived in and
near Falls City since his youth.
No man can truthfully accuse
him of a single dishonorable act
during all of these years.
He has held many positions
of trust and has fulfilled all his
duties with protit to his constit

numbers who wore the blue in
the days of the rebellion and
his war record is as tine as his
peace record, though he is a
modest man not gi,ven to speak

the saloon, he will vote against
license if the mayor shall have
to vote, and any man who doubts
this doesn't know him.
lie has given the city hours
and days of his time in the past
year and has begun many things
that should be completed under
his charge. He is progressive,
honest and untiring, and has
made an excellent official.
The “only paper on earth"
must have neglected to search
the records lor an analysis of
our city water before making
the bold statements in its last
issue. The other city papers
contained a report from pro
fessors at the state university
pronouncing the water good,
which is splendid authority
“the only largest and best" to
the contrary. But then that
great moulder of public opinion
is never enjoying the best of
health when it is not engaged
in trying to create discord in
every public movement that
tends toward bettering the con
ditions and building up the cilv
to which it owes its existence.
A worthy mission for a home
paper and no doubt conducive
to a great influx of goodciti ens
to our midst.
Tile News, from force of habit,
has become so accustomed to
registering a “kick" against
every public act,whether worthy
or otherwise, that in its last is

The News appears to have no
regard for a citizen that cannot
be made useful to that paper.
Last week in its attack upon
several parties who had nothing
whatever to do with the making
of the tieke.t that neglected to
mention the Davis family, and
thus engendered the utter con
tempt of that paper, the name
of Jonn L. Cleaver was men
tioned and he came in for a
share of personal abuse. The
fact is. Mr. Cleaver has been in
ill In tlili for a few weeks past
and neither by word of month
or act has made a move in the
city campaign. Mr. Cleaver
has been a clean, law-abiding
and highly esteemed citizen for
a great many year.5?, one whose
conduct, both private and pub
lic. is beyond comparison with
that ot the man who would thus,
thrust a dart at him. These
methods have been so long used
by that paper that it has become
the fountain Ih ad of their argu
ment. and a necessity in order
to get out the weekly edition.
There is not a family in the city
where the -ame dart would sink
deeper tnan in the Davis family.
Because a man lias charge of a
newspaper, he has no moral
right to willfully and malicious
ly say unkind things about his
neighbor who does not have the
same resource ot defense, Mr.
Cleaver, with other good men.

About The Depot
A lew days ago Chief of Police i
Mart/: was at the depot and found
several “bums" in the yards,
among them being a youngster
about fourteen years old. He or
dered the men to travel on and
brought the boy up town. After
questioning him it was learned
that he had run away from his
home at Omaha. His parents
were immediately notified and
Officer Marts sent him home on
the first train.
A Small Blaze
About 11:30 Tuesday morning
the fire bell rang and the depart
ment was called to the home of
John Blazier in the east part of
town. The roof was in 'ames
but was soon extinguished with
little damage. The origin ol the
fire is not known.
