Already the official organ of the dem
ocratic "bosses" is calling for "vigilance"
in regard to keeping the lines closed up.
That is all right, but why don't the
"bosses" vary the program a little occa
sionally. Why have the "lines" always
fallen in certain places, year after year,
term after term. What inducement
have the rank and file to keep the lines
closed? You havent builded better
than you knew. Somebody else wants
a chance, and you haven't got out of the
old rut You think, may be, that you
are hoodwinking those whom you
"downed" at your convention, but it is
not so. Two years ago you thought
your opposition in your own ranks was
insignificant, trifling, not to be thought
of, but it was far otherwise. The ghost,
as you supposed it to be, would not
down at your bidding. Neither will it
again. The fact is that your assumed
ghost is flesh and blood and that of a
finer grain, so to speak, than your own,
closer allied to the public weal and less
oent on selfish and merely personal mo
tives. But it is because of their love of
themselves, their self-respect and the
assertion of their right, occasionally, at
least, to taste the sweets of office, that
your way this time is to be worse than
before. These men now know that so
long as your pets are the only ones who
can receive nominations, there is no
show for them until your force is brok
en, and they purpose doing that very
thing this time. You didn't heed the
lesson of two years ago, and you repeat
ed the blunder of that campaign at your
convention last week. Many of you see
this now, but it is another instance of
hind-sight being better than fore-sight
Your ways are the ways of a ''boss,'' and
that day has gone by, pretty much. It
will answer your purpose, here and there
probably, where you may find a man
who is not versed in what is going on
about him, but citizens who have their
eyes open, fully opened to your personal,
private, selfish ends will tell you,
"Go show yonr slaves how choleric yon are
And bid yoor bondsmen tremble,"
but don't try to whip us into line. We
know our business best, and, as you
have not consulted us and our interests
in making your nominations, you needn't
expect our vote to help you carry out
your designs.
The Platte Center Argus, one of the
several democratic papers of this county,
has some fine things to say concerning
John Stauffer, the democratic nominee
for treasurer, but along with it the Ar
gus is compelled to refer to the fact of
his opposition to a thorough examina
tion of the records of his office.' In
this connection the Argus says that "the
only objection that can be seriously
urged against retaining Mr. Stauffer in
office another two or four years is that
he should not lay down one office, after
having it thirteen years, to take another
position." Will the Argus explain why
it is that it makes this last statement,
if the former one is true? If Mr. Stauffer
has opposed, as you say he has, "a
thorough examination of the records of
his office" as clerk, why is it that you
say the only objection to retaining him
in office, is his long-time service? Some
thing is out of joint here. May be it is
a slip of the pen. The two propositions
dont pull together one goes gee, while
the other comes haw, and it is for this
reason that many of Stauffer's best
friends and former supporters in both
parties are, some angry because he
pledged himself to have nothing. to do
with running for office this time, and
yet, as they believe, labored to bring his
nomination about; others feel that they
have voted for him long enough, and
still others are convinced that he had
better yet decline to run, ask the dem
ocratic central committee to take his
name from the ticket, at the beeinninir
of the two months' campaign, rather
than near the close of it
"TssBXwill be no excuse for demo
crats to vote for a single republican
candidate in this county this fall," so
says the Telegram, the recognised lead
er of the democratic party in Platte
county. It would be rather more than
the nature of things would lead us to
expect, to see the republican ticket
receive all the votes of the county, but
there is abundant reason for believing
that the "bosses" of the democratic
party in this county have not acted
wisely in their nominations but far
otherwise, and that the day is at hand
for the people of that party, the men
who do the voting, to open up the
record and see what it will develop.
"People will talk," aad, now that they
have a goodly number of days before
the election to consider what is best to
do, they will canvass the situation pretty
thoroughly, and it is more than likely
that in each case the best man will win.
With all due deference to the opinion of
our democratic neighbor, D. Frank, we
say there will not only be excuse, but
justification and good reasons for desao-
crata to vote iornoi osuy one repunne,
but slso the whole ticks. "St yoa

It was a Kavanaugh triumph all
through, and the "Boss" never showed
his political finesse to better advantage
than when he arose in the convention
and asked those who were voting for him
to refrain, as he would, under no circum
stances, accept a nomination.
Two years ago Kavanaugh was defeat
ed for county treasurer by Gus. Becher,
and 'now the "Boss" wants to show his
party that even Stauffer, who has slipped
quietly into office every time, can't de
feat Gus.
Kavanaugh held his grip on the con
vention, so that he could wreck the
party nominations, and he has succeeded
Stauffer has held office in Platte coun
ty for fourteen years, and has grown
rich off the county. Give somebody
else a chance.
Must we pension Stauffer?
Bothleitner is not the sort of man to
place at the head of the schools of Platte
county. We know what Mr. Cramer is,
and he's all right, but this man well,
Platte county, in former years, made too
many mistakes with this office, and when
we have a good man, one who has given
excellent satisfaction in his office, we
will not foolishly drop him after one
term for an untried individual.
Good old Mr. Eusden wasn't in the
ring, and so had to step aside for Dick
Bossiter. I always liked Dick personally,
but politically he is tied up with the old
ring, and of course stands no show for
election if a good surveyor is put up
against him.
A Goo Idea.
Ed. Journal jSir: In this age of
rapid transit and convenience to market,
the people in this part of Platte county
feel as though they were laboring under
great disadvantage and .difficulties -on
account of the distance and incon
venience to market We feel that we
are not having a fair show in trying to
compete with our neighbors, compared
with more favored portions of the coun
ty, and therefore wonder if there is not
some feasible plan for us to adopt to
overcome the inconveniences and at the
same time secure assistance from other
communities who would be benefited by
the plan. (For we constitutionally favor
enterprises that promise mutual benefit
to all, and believe on that platform the
true success and progress of the county
and people depends.)
Therefore, our idea is, to build a nar-row-guage
railroad from the north line
of Sherman township to Columbus,
the townships through which it would
pass would, I think, be willing to vote a
reasonable amount of money for the en
terprise, and while it would give us a
good, easy, stable and convenient mar
ket, it at the same time would enhance
the value of our lands, and also very
materially help Columbus. Columbus
must always and will be our market, for
there is no point that can or will be able
to compete in prices of goods and pro
duce bought and sold, for she is a rail
road center and her advantages can
never be overcome, and it certainly
would be wisdom for her business men
and citizens to do all they can to
strengthen and improve these advant
ages. If my plan is feasible and can be
adopted, there is more territory south
and west that can be benefited mutual
ly, by the same plan, and the greatness
of Columbus very materially advanced.
The present railroads would perhaps en
courage a move of this kind, for it cer
tainly would assist them as well toward
reaping an advantage. Let some prac
tical, able man give us his opinion on
this matter, or any person who feels an
interest in the scheme.

Sowing Rye.
There ore but few farmers so situated
that at least one field may not be sown
with rye to advantage. When sown early it
may be grazed in the late Autumn and
; during the Winter in short, whenever
the ground is dry enough to permit cat
tle in the field without doing too much
injury to the plants. In this way, either
by pasturing or soiling, green food to
take the place of ensilage may be. had
far into the Spring, until it is time to
plough it under for a different crop. It
is a specially good crop to be followed
by sweet potatoes, for which it leaves the
ground in good condition, its rank spring
growth smothering a multitude of the
early weeds. Besides what is removed
by pasturing, enough will remain to be
ploughed under to add to the fertility of
the ground instead of abstracting any
thing from it When sown especially
for the grain it may be pastured very
considerably without injury to the crop.
One of the merits of rye as a special
... ....... . . .
crop lies in tne fact tnat it not only
affords, succulent food in abundance at a
period when it cannot be obtained from
any other growing crop but almost its
entire growth may be made on land that
would otherwise have been idle. B. L.

Less than seventy years ago the mar
ket price of a bushel of corn would buy
one pound of nails, now it will buy ten
pounds of nails. Then the price of a
bushel of wheat was required to buy a
yard of calico; now the same bushel will
pay for twenty yards of a much better
fabric. So the policy of protection and
diversifying industries in this country
has increased the purchasing power of
labor more than tenfold. There has
never been a period in the history of this
country wben a day's labor would yield
so much solid human comfort as during
the past twenty years, and there is no
other country on earth where the laborer
fares so well as in our own "tariff bur
dened" America. David City Tribune.

Waaalagtea Letter.
From oar regular correspondent.
Senators Sherman, 'Sawyer and Dolph
formed a very interesting trio in one of
the corridors of the capitol one day last
week. As I started toward them they
were engaged in a very animated con
versation. Before I reached them they
started walking along the corridor. I
quiekened my steps a little so as to over
take them in the hopes of obtaining
something interesting in the shape of
news. They were discussing congres
sional matters, I know, because a friend
ly employe had just given me the tip.
Just as I got close enough to hear the
words "rules and contested cases" the
trio passed through the open door of a
committee room closing the door behind
them and your correspondent found a
big white door between him and the
senatorial trio. Senators Dolph and
Sawyer are here to remain until the
session opens but senator Sherman
leaves in a few days for Ohio to take
part in the campaign.

department 40,000 cases behind in fur

records of applicants for pensions. The
secretary after an examination of mat

to create the division of records and pen
sions in his department The wisdom of
his action may be judged from the fact
that the work is now right up to date
and on Saturday, the applications re

The state department has received
dispatches from minister Whitelaw Ried
stating that the French government had
apologized for the arrest and discourte

Mentone, several months ago, also that
the French government had severely
reprimanded the officials that made the
arrests. Protection to American citi

boast under this administration.
The annual report of Hon. E. S.
Mitchell, commissioner of patents just
issued furnishes food for study. It
shows the total number of applications
for patents for the year ending June 30,

have been 21,518. In view of this fact
one is apt to loose faith in the old max
