Wednesday afternoon the city pas
tors met with the union to effect
means of closer co-operation in
future campaigns against the allied

the Ten Commandments as they re
late to the saloon. She handled her
subject with tin* freedom of familiar
ity and much originality and force.
The next convention will be held In

A tragic feature of the convention
was the accident that happened to
Mrs. Fulton of Pawnee City, one of
the delegates. Mrs. Fulton is an
aged mother, having passed her Shili
year. As site was leaving the home
of her hostess, Mrs. N. T. Van Win
kle, Wednesday evening, she by mis

she is in a precarious condition. The
doctors are unable to rally her from
tin1 force of tlie shock and the aenes
liietic. Mrs. Fulton is the mother
of Fnited States Senator Pulton of
Oregon and Congressman Fulton of
Oklahoma. At her advanced age she
continued an active worker in tin W

A Special Offer.
The big daily papers find 'it neces
sary and profitable to keep increas
ing their subscription list, and one of
the fastest growers is th« Lincoln
State Journal. This splendid state
daily lias just opened up another big
subscription campaign, offering the
paper till January 1, 1911 for only $2:
with Sunday $2.90. This special rate
will bring the business. The jour
nal lias a way of its own—cutting
out a lot of expensive methods of
getting subscribers and making the
low rate to its readers direct. The
people of the slate as never before
are looking to the Journal for the
real doings in Hie state. It is build
ing up its business through reliabil
ity and enterprise, especially in cov
ering the stale news. Another good
tiling about the Journal is its policy
of stopping every paper when the
time is up. If you don't, pay for it
you don’t get it. and when you pay
for it you only pay for your own
paper, not helping to pay for the
one sent some deadbeat. You will

MUST HAVE DAY SERVICE
NO TIME TO LISTEN TO MAUD
If City Can't Furnish Same Private
Individuals Should Be Given
Full Scope to that End
The industrial development of Falls
City has reached that stage where
th<' need of electric service in the
day time is imperative. Heretofore
it has been possible to gel along
without dnv current Hut the city
has been growing. New j industries
have been added. The situation is now
sueli ttint day service is a necessity.
Without it important industries would
lie seriously handicapped and some
Thi city lias an electric plant of
her own. li is tile duly of the city
fathers to conserve the interests of
the cilv by protecting the plant. On
the other hand it Is also their duly
to not only avoid every possible hind
ranee to (he development of the lo
cal industries, but also to advantage
their growth and success.
Recently the city council appoint
ed a commlttei to consider the ad
visability of pulling on a day cur
rent. The committee,for reasons that
do not appear, reported adversely.
There may be good reasons why the
city should not at this time under
lake to put on day current. The
electric plant, like the city water
plant, iias for tome time hceen show
ing symptoms of being too Idg for
the present management And yet
we venture that the council and may
or. in their way. are doing the best
they know how.
If the city cannot furnish the need
ed Current, it is up to the city to
admit the facts, and grant private
parties the necessary permits to go
ahead in this work. Any effort on
the part of the city to protect her
municipal interests at the expense of
her local industries must result dis
astrously to the city.
Mr. Sehinelzel. has installed a small
electric plant in Ids garage. Ilis pur
pose is to supply day current to par
ties desiring the same. Heretofore,
Mr. Sehinelzel lias only been supply
ing current for light power purposes.
The council has granted him a per
mit to put up liis wires In the city
under very definite limitations These
limitations, as we understand them,
are such as to deny him the right to
furnish electric power in any consul
erable quantity to any one concern.
The city is evidently trying to fore
stall the building up of a private, elec
tric power plant of any considerable
magnitude, such as might in the fu
lure compete with the city plant to
the city’s disadvantage. Under ordi
nary conditions this might he a land
able precaution, under existing con
ditions, the chances are that it is
only one more illustration of the
lamentable lack of business capacity
on the part of our city fathers.
The National Poultry and lOgg Co.
arc building up a magnificent bus
iness in Falls City, to the advantage
of the city and the community for
miles around. To operate their
plan', which is fast approaching com
plot ion, they must have day current.
The city is not in shape to promise
them the current needed. .lust as
the city lias not yet seen her way
dear to promise the railroad i otnpany
the water whit li they have repeated
ly asked for, and which they will
soon need for operating the round
housi . VVha1 slialI the National
Poultry and Kgg Uo and tin railroad
people do under tin* circumstances?
They cannot tie up tHeir business
and close: shop until the city adminis
tration mak"s up its mind to come to
their rescue. They must of necessity
look elsewhere for these utilities.
Morn Friday. April 20, to Mr. and
Mrs. hosier Fisher, a baity girl. All
concerned are doing nicely.
An eight pound baby girl arrived
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. .less
Spence, last Sunday evening. As
this is the first little lady iij the
Spence family, among a number of
hoys, she is likely to be the pet of
several families. Mother and baby
are doing nicely.

$1,000.00 to Fight the Saloon.
The better class of citizens of
Preston and farmers In the commun
ity have subscribed $1,000.00 to be
used If necessary in preventing the
open saloon from doing business in
the village The people are deter
mined to leave mi stone unturned in
their efforts to keep the 1 i11!«* elty
decent and clean. However, while
watching tin- saloon that as yet does
not exist, it would be well for the
good brethren to gel next to the vile
practices of certain conscienceless
men who are giving drink to minors
and then getting their money away
from them. This despicable business
Is being done to intimidate h- '.pleas
widows into signing petitions on the
grounds that the open sal ion would
be less harmful than the present
Hen- is work for the county of
ficers, and possibly for a grand jury
investigation. H is time that some
one gels busy and puts an end to
this kind of devilment.
