vor of County Option.
In a gtateemnt given to the press,
m. J. Bryan declared himself in
4-or of county option in Nebraska,
d at the same time says it is time
for political parties to declare them
selves independent of the liquor k
terests. Mr. Bryan says county op
tion is both fair and logical, and in
sists that the Government has the un
4oubted right to regulate the liquor
traffic in. any manner it sees fit. Af
ier extended argument in favor of
the principle of county option the
"The saloon-not everyone, but
as a rule-is an alliance with vice. It

matters that may even remotely af

of the Nebraska Legislature. The
Democrats had a majority in botb
branches for the first time in the
State's history, and the splendid
record of the Legislature, has but
one blot on it, and that ilet was put
there by the liquor interests. They
eotioed enough of the Senators to
prevent the submission of the initia

Alderman Cannon, chairman of
the finanee committee, made a re
port as to the finances vf the town,
stating that withiii the past several
days two notes, one of $10,000 held
by the Germania Savings bank, in
Charleston, and another note of $3,
000, had been paid, the two notes
aggregating in the neighborhood of
Mayor Blease said that on the
25th of;January Mr. Henry Schachte,
president of the Germania Savings
bank, had writtez -to the clerk,and
treasurer asking if the town needed
any money in addition to the $10,000
note held by the bank. Mayor Blease
said that Mr. J. D. Davenport had
also told him that the Germania
-Savings bank had offered to let the
town have $15,000 if it wanted it, at
six per cent., and to carry the $10,
000 note. Mayor Blease said he had
written. Mr. Schaehte, in response to
these ofers from the bank, and ask
ed him at what rate of interest he
would carry the $10,000 note, or at
whit rate he would carry $5,000 of
it if the -town should pay the other
half. He said that Mr. Schachte had
replied that he would like to have
the $10,000 note paid at maturity,
and that next year he would consider
the matter of lending the town more
money. Mayor Blease said ,in reply
to this letter he had sent Mr.
Schachte % check for the note, and
had written. that he could not under
stand his sudden change of front,
unless it was to batch somebody
napping, and if this'was the case the
mayor was glad that he had disap
pointed him. For some reason, said
the mayor, the notes were made pay
able in Charleston, instead of at the
Newberry banks, and this, he said,
had cost the town thirteen dollars to
send the money to Charleston.
The correspondence between Mr.
Schachte and the city authorities
was submitted to council, as follows:
