Rural Schools Will Have Flags,
Through the efforts and assistance
of the G. A. R. and W. R. C. of this
city the rural school buildings in Lincoln
county not already supplied with flags
will be provided with tho starry em
blems. In response to a request from
these two patriotic orders, County
Supt. Chappell has after inquiry,
learned that there are eighty school
buildings in the county which do not
have flags. These will be supplied in
the near future. This gift of the G.
A. R. and W. R. C. will certainly bo
appreciated, and is an act that is to bo
commended. The good that these two
orders are doing in a patriotic and
charitable way is not fully known, for
each do not let one hand know what
the other is doing they do not boast
of their good work.
Engineers Refused Increase.
A New York dispatch dated yester
day said: Fifty railroads comprising
practically all the lines east of Chicago
and north of the Norfolk & Western,
today refused to grant an increase in
wages demanded by their locomotive
The engineers' demand, presented on
January 22, was for an increase amount
ing to about 19 per cent a year. The
railroads' refusal is based on tho asser
tion that they arc financially unable to
bear the increased expense.
Tho railroads in their reply pointed
out that the nronosed increase will
amount to $7,553,782 annually, which
would bo equivlent to placing on their
property a lien of $188,844,818 of 4 per
cent securities which would have pref
erence over first mortgage bonus, "and
to just that extent would lessea thq
ability of the roads to make the im
provements necessary to increase the
efficiency of their service and insure
greater safety to tho public and employes."

How many of you feel tho responsibility
resting upon your votes? We may look
for a moment at the saloon. Think of
its drain of life, its financial drain.
Last year, $1,300,000,000 were spent
for necessaries of life, such as public
education, woolen goods, boots, shoos
and bread, but, the liquor bill was $1,
400,000,000. Can it really bo possible
for you, tho voters of our city, to think
of this with any peace of mind? It
should arouso all our righteous indigna

resources of tho world I the poor aro
