that all his forces would be thrown to

Representative S.nk and W. H. Thompson
the "Little Olant," of Or and Island, are
In town. They came to talk with the
mayor about the democratic nominations
tor governor and senator, and It got out
that they came to "bolster Dahlman up."
"I haven't seen the boys yet," said the
mayor, "but they don't need to bolster mo
up I'm there to stick. It's all right for
them to come and talk matters with me;
I want to see them, but nobody needs to
put any ginger In me on that score.
"Tea, I understand F!"y Thompson is
going to run for senator and he'll make a
good race, too. Mr. Hitchcock will 'find
that neither he nor Bhallenberger Is going

Mr. Sink, who is the author of the nine

out that he is for Dahlman for governor

other state with 1,000,000 people. Guatemala
has the densest population, with the ex-

There are time principal classes of peo-

Integrlty through four centuries of white
domination, and the Ladlnos, who are a
kind of racial Jumble, with the blood of
three of the five great races of mankind
In their veins. The whites are exclusive
and are unpopular with the L-idinos. who
are in turn hated by the Indians. The
whiteB are cultured, but fond of ease and
luxury. The Ladlnos work, but the Indians

MERCHANTS OF NEBRASKA
SOON COMING TO OMAHA
January 15 Openlnar Day for Winning
Refund of Hallroad Fare oa
Purchases of Merchandise.
Omaha Jobbers are preparing for the
coming of the merchants of the state. Be
ginning January 15, these merchants may
visit Omaha without expense for railroad
fare. The Omaha Jobbers' and Manufac
turers' association has arranged to refund
all railroad fares when 2 per cent of the
goods bought in Omaha equals the railroad
This plan was Inaugurated in 1909 and
has proven highly satisfactory to both
Jobber and buyer, bo much so that other
cities are adopting the plan. These rates
take the place of merchants' meetings, for
which the railroads granted certain ratea
which were good only on certain days. The
present plan will continue In operation
for three months, and is deviled to suit
the convenience of the retailers rather than
The only condition Imposed by the plan Is
that the. retailers take a receipt for their
fare and present the receipt at the office
of the association In the Chamber of Com
merce building. By the plan a merchant
must buy $1 worth of goods for each mile
he travels In going and coming In order to
get his fare back. It is not necessary,
however, to buy the goods from any one
house In ordiT to seoure th refund. Bo
long as the aggregate purchases from as
sociation members equal the amount the
refund will be made.
Omaha Jobbers and manufacturers are In
splendid condition to show and deliver
spring goods. That retailers appreciate
the Omaha market 1 shown by the in
crease of $22,000,000 Which was made last
