Thomas A. Edison ought lo
bring his portable house molds
to Falls City and erect a hun
dred or so concrete homes over
night. The question of suitable
homes becomes more pressing ev
ery day, and people are offering
to pay exorbitant rent for do
cent homes that are located any
where near the shops. The bus
iness men of Falls City who have
money to invest should form a
building association and see that
the demand for homes is met at
once. There are any number of
families that would buy homes on
the installment plan and the in
vestmnet would net the builders
handsome returns on their money.
Now is the time when the
Falls City Commercial club, by
pushing things a bit, can get
returns for tho time and money
spent in former years. A Com
mercial club can boost all the
time, and do good work, but
sooner or later, tho chance to
get something big for the town
will present itself, and tho club
will bo the organization best
suited to go after new business
and new establishments. Kear
ney is the best organization, num
bering among its members prac
tically every live business man of
the city, and carrying on at all
times a campaign of progressive
boosting. Falls City has better
chances for boosting than Kcar
ncy, and in time will be a better
city; and the Commercial Club
is in a position to hasten the
day. Let's have a grand revival
of the club, and let the people
know what a good city we have,

As indicated in this correspon
dence the democratic majority
of the House of Rcpresenatives
propose to give immediate con
sideration of the Canadian reci
procity matter, and certain pha
ses of the tariff which have
been previously outlined. The
democrats propose that a great
many articles now protected by
the Payne-Aldrich tariff law, is
placed upon the free list, includ
ing meats of all kinds, flour,tim
ber, sewing machines, salt, plows
and agricultural implements, al
so leather, boots and shoes and
barb wire fences. Wool will be
considered when the reciprocity
agreement and free list meas
ures are out of the way. It is
expected that this proposed legis
lation will arouse a big fight.
There is a general expression
of approval of the administration
of Honorable Champ Clark as
the Speaker of the House of Rep
resentatives. The Committee on
Ways and Means having taken
the responsibility for 1he appoint
ment of committees out of Mr.
Clark’s hands, the usual dissat;
isfaction expressed by members
who have met with disappoint
ment in their assignments, has
been carefully concealed, and no
one has thought to charge their
ill successes to the presiding of
ficers of the House. While Mr.
Clark is a partisan in every
sense of the word, he has always
been admired because of his ab
solute fairness to political oppo
nents, and things are running ex
ceedingly smooth. The endorse
ment of William Randolph Hears
is a big feather in the cap of
Mr. Clark and has added some
what to the strength of the move
ment to make the new speaker a
presidential candidate. Mr. Hears
designates Mr. Clark as the
“Party Pilot” and says that the
democratic party “must avoid
unsound radicalism or dishonest
conservatism.” He adds that if
the progressives of the two par
ties fail in their objects, that a
new party composed of demo
crats and republicans will be
formed. His advice to self-ap
pointed advisers to democracy is
to go home and leave the work
of Champ Clark.

Supreme Court Refuses to Grant
Rehearing— Execution of
Sentence is May 19
Thomas Johnson the Omaha
negro who is to be hanged for
t he murder of a stockman named
Henry It. Krankland, now has no
hope except from an appeal to
Governor Aldrich. He is to be
hanged for murder May 19 un
less the governor interferes with
the carrying out of the law. John
son was convicted by the Dis
trict court of Dougins county
and the judgment was affirmed
by a majority of the supreme
court. He then applied to the
supreme court for a rehearing
and this motion was overruled
yesterday. The death of the con
victed man will take place with
in the stockade of the state peni
tentiary unless Gov. Aldrich in
terferes to stay the judgment of
the courts. The governor is now
out of town and wull not return
for more than a week, so that ap
plications for clemency must re
main on file for awhile.
Johnson was formerly a U. S.
soldier. He had an honorable
discharge. He was convicted of
the murder of a cattleman in Om
aha and the watch of the mur
dered man was found in his pos
session. Blood was on the cloth
ing of Johnson when he was ar
rested after he had spent the
night in a dive with a negro wo
man. He asked for a re hearing
( n the ground of prejudice on
the part of white men on the
jury and because of the alleged
prejudicial action of policemen
and the sheriff at the trial before
the jury. Ilis motion for a re
hearing having been overruled by
the supreme court, only a re
prieve or a pardon from the gov
ernor can save Johnson’s life.
