In the death of Algernon S. Paddock the State of
Nebraska lost one of herformost and most energetic
citizens. During his term of office in the U. S. sen
ate ho informed the people of different states that
Nebraska would be looked after. He whs very ac
tive in getting measures which would forward the
interests of his own state. He was always looking
forward to doing some good for the industries of
Nebraska while he was depriving himself of the
pleasant hours he might have spent in the social
circles at Washington.
The ex-senator leaves a good clean record and
this speaks a good deal for him. He is known
throughout every state in the union as an upright
and conscientious man. Mr. Paddock had planned
more work than his constitution would allow hiin to
do. Not only Nebraska, but the whole United States
suffers a great loss in the death of such an honor
able citizen a Algernon S. Paddock has proven
himself to be.
