A Cat
This is the first campaign ia Nebraska
in which polilical bosses cat no figure.
The people will nominate thecandiflaies
and afterwards elect them. You are one
of the people and should take an active
interest ia these primaries and elections
hereafter. Politics from now on means
a square deal for the masses; lower
passenger rates, lower freight rates, less
extortion by trusts and combinations.
These things can only be accomplished
by every honest voter making it a part
of his business. The people can only
know what is really going on by reading
the newspapers. But you ought to read
a newspaper that caa print the truth
about all the candidates, a paper that
has no self-interest in politics; whose
owners are not office-holders or office
seekers. The publishers think the State
Journal is such a paper and in order to
prove it to you make the special offer
of only 60 oento f rom now until after
election; seventy-five oents if you want
the 8unday also. The earlier you send
in your order the more you get for your
money. Lincoln is the news center.
