The principal topic before this Ger

It Is desired that through the Gorman
press , the German schools and the
Gorman church , the German language
language shall bo perpetuated In this

A. A. AHLMANN WOULD E8TAB-
LISH A NEEDED TRANSIT.
HE HAS MADE A PROPOSITION
Will Put His Big Automobile , Now In
Shoshonl , on the Road Between Here
and the Junction , Provided Road is
Improved , at 30 Cent Fare ,
An automobile line , with a regular
car every few minutes , between Nor
folk and the Junction , is a possibility.
A proposition has been made'which , If
considered favorably by the business
men and Commercial club , will result
In the establishing of a transit line at
a very early date.
A. A. Ahlmann of Norfolk lias Just
returned from Shoshonl , where ho
vent with a hugo automobile for the
nirposo of transferring people across
ho country. The car Is still at She
shonl , but the crowds have ceased.
Mr. Ahlmann makes this proposition :
Ho will put his automobile between
Norfolk and the Junction , making reg-
ilar Jrlps at brief Intervals , on a 10-
cent faro basis , provided the Commer
cial club of Norfolk will put First
street , or any other street between Nor-
oik' and the Junction , In condition
vhlcb will allow the use of his ma
chine In rainy weather. The machine
can carry olght people at a trip.
Mr. Ahlmann loft Norfolk last night
'or Shoshonl , to be gone ton days. If
ho Commercial club of Norfolk wants
o take up his proposition , and will let
ilm know before that time , ho will
irlng the machine back with him and
nit It on the route.
How Fare Could be Overco'me.
Mr. Ahlmann says that ho doesn't
see bis way clear to make a contract
.o run for less than 10-cont fares , be-
cauRO of his Investment In the ma
chine and the comparatively largo
nfimbor of trips necessary to make
oven on tbo deal.
If , however , the proposition is con
sidered favorably by the business men
of Norfolk , a plan something like this
might bo developed by which to over
come the 10-cont fnro :
Merchants and business men could
rebate all passengers who bought
goods at their stores , Just as In many
of the cities merchants give street
car tickets with purchases over a cer
tain amount. Half the faro could be
rebated , thus reducing the tax upon
Junction people to a nickel.
So far as improving a road Is concerned -
corned , that ought to bo done , and
needs to bo done , for the hack lines ,
the carriages and other vehicles that
have to make the Junction trip every
day. That is one of the things needed
in Norfolk today , so that It would not
bo an especial burden on account of
stabllshlng the auto-lino.
It Is suggested that the Commercial
club consider this proposition Injme-
llatoly. so that , If It Is to bo accepted ,
he machine could bo brought back.
Mr , Ahlmann Is willing to make a
contract with the business men on the
The establishment of this auto line
is not for competition with the cabs
or hotel buses. ItIs to bring people
up town who do not now como. It
will not answer the same purpose as
the cabs , which make trips to all parts
of town , and will bo purely for the
purpose of bringing Junction people
up town nt a faro which will allow
thorn to como often.
LINE THROUGH TO COAST.
Northwestern Capital Stock Increase
for That Purpose.
A special meeting of the stockhold
ers of the Northwestern road will beheld
held on October IS for the purpose of
voting on nn Issue of , f 100,000,000
worth of stock. This will double the
present capitalization of the North
The Northwestern officials have giv
en no explanation of why this addi
tional capital Is wanted , but It Is be
lieved by those who have kept track
of that company's movements that this
increase Is to afford capital to extend
the company's line from Lander to the
coast. The western end of the road
will be at Lander within two or three
The St. Paul has authorized the Is-
Hue of $25.000,000 worth of capital
stock for its coast extension.

Seward Independent-Democrat : Rev.
F. W. Leavltt , who for the past three
years has been pastor of the Congre
gational church In Soward. hahded his
resignation to the congregation Mon
day. His action comes as a surprise
to fhe conimunlty ( for no pastor stationed
tioned hero for years past has been
more popular with the people generally
ly than has he. He has always been
a consistent church worker , and the
results of his Influence have been felt
beyond the confines of his own congre-
tlon. Mr. Lcavitt has no definite plans
for the Immediate future , it Is under
stood , but his many Seward friends
will wish for him the best of success
In whatever field he may ultimately
locate. The resignation is to take ef
fect October 1.

by the resignation of Dr. A. W. Clark.
Dr. Sisson , who- has bOen presiding
elder of his church and Is now pastor
of the South Omaha Methodist church ,
will remain In charge of his church
ntll the conference. He Is one of
Nebraska's best known men , one of
Ide and successful experience in
andllng affairs and men. Since Dr.
31ark resigned to go to Colorado the
rustees of the Institute have been
ainstaklng in their efforts to secure
successor. The trustees through the
ress confidently ask the co-operation
f the public , without any reference to
ect or creed , to aid In doing what , as
hey say , "Is God's work for part of
ependent humanity. " The Child Sav-
ng Institute , located at Eighteenth
ml Ohio strets , this city , has steadily
grown in favor , both in this city and
hroughout the state , since Its organ- !

10 homeless children.
Omaha World-Herald : Assistant
General Manager Walters of the North
vestern is back from an Inspection'
the company lines west of the Mis
sourl river. His trip extended as far
west as Casper , Wyo. Mr. Walters
found the road in excellent condition ,
every station doing a good business
and the towns and country prosperous.
Speaking of the crop conditions Mr.
Walters said : "Northwestern Nebras
ka never looked so good as this year
Small grain has all been harvested and
the crop has been enormous. There
has been a bountiful yield of every
thing. There has been plenty of rain
and If there should not be another
drop there would bo a bumper crop.
Way out In the sand hills the corn Is
a heavy crop. It Is well eared and
right now a large portion Is out of the
way of frost , though frost Is not ex
pected for a month or six weeks. The
whole country west of Norfolk seems
to bo turning its attention to putting
up wild hay. Usually this portion of
the state Is a great hay section , but
this year more attention than ever be
fore Is being given to putting up the
wild grass. Around Bassett , Newport
and a dozen other stations haying out
fits are working In every direction.
The crop Is In fine condition and will
be ready to ship In a few days. As far
as the eye can see are hay stacks or
outHts cutting and stacking. In the
past Bassett and Newport have been
the largest hay shipping markets In
the world and this year they are going
to maintain their places by sending
out more than ever before. "
A. C. SHALLENBERGER , FUSION
CANDIDATE , SPEAKS.
NORFOLK WAS FIRST TARGET
Mr. Shallenberger Declared for Gov
ernment Ownership of Railroads , for
Abolition of Free Pass , for Direct
Primary , Etc.
A. C. Shallenberger , fusion candi
date for governor of Nebraska , fired
the first gun of his campaign In Nor
folk last " 'b'l't ' ' , before the democratic
congressional convention. Mr. Slml-
lenberger spoke for more than an hour ,
during which time ho declared that he
Is a friend of Bcrgc , defeated populist
gubernatorial aspirant , and that two
years ago ho stepped aside to allow
Bcrgo the nomination. Then 'ho lit
into campaign topics , denying ho was
nominated through corporate Influence ,
and attacking trusts and free passes ,
He declared that government owner
ship of railroads Is the only solution
of the rate question.
Mr. Shallcnbcrger is an up-to-date
looking man. He has a ruddy face ,
grey hair , and wears patent leather
slioes. Ho looks prosperous. He is
one of the most rapid speakers ever
heard In Norfolk. He talks at the
rate of about 300 words a mlnuto so
fast indeed , that no stenographer in
the country has ever been able to take
his speeches whllo he talked. He was
cheered repeatedly by his auditors ,
most of whom were convention dele
Mr. Shallcubergcr said he came here
to deliver his first ° speech because
thcro was nibro opposition to his nom
ination In the Third than any other
"Tho two planks In the convention
platform that have teeth In them for
the corporation are the antl-pafe
plank , that provides penalties of fine
to Individuals and forfeiture of ofllce
to ofllce holders ; and elective railway
commission plank that provides for
appraisal of the property of corpora
tion bond and taxes and rent , making
propositions and demryids that the
same valuations shall be used in de
termining both the rent and the tax.
And the platform committee will bear
me out that I put teeth In both these
planks. I also voted for the plank de
claring In favor of government owner
ship of railroads , both before the com-
mlttoo and In the convention , and I
reiterate now my absolute belief that
In this lies the only flnnl solution of
equity between the railroads and the
people. Those who are up against mo
in this campaign will admit that I am
something of a fighter. But I fight
"Mickey won his fight In the west
ern country precincts , " says Mr. Shal-
lenbergor , "but there will bo no trou
ble there this time. "
, Mr. Shallenberger declared that de
struction of private monopoly must
come and that it exists by virtue of
protective tariff and railroad discrim
ination. "Tho transportation monopoly
ely Is the issue in Nebraska this fall , "
he said. He declared for direct pri
mary and the abolishment of free
"Any reduction in railroad passen
ger fares or freight rates , " he said ,
"will ho fought by railroads , to the last
ditch. Whether those reductions shall
prevail or not , shall depend upon the
profit that the railroad capital Is makr
Ing. Just as the valuation of the
board of assessors on the railroad tax- .
atlon power of commonwealth behind
it , so the finding of this board of rail
road commissioners responsible to the
people , will come before the courts on
that ground , and I believe the valua
tion will stand. "
Queer Accident Results When Dog Iff
Locked In a Store.
One of Tom Hlght's dogs was acci
dentally locked In Chrlstoph's drug"
store at 12:30 : yesterday , when they
locked up to go to dinner and the dog ,
after Elmer Hlght had gone , wanted to
get out. He tried every way possible
and finally thought that by getting Into
the window he could see the outside
better than from the floor. There hap
pened to be a big display of Havlland
china in the window , but that didn't
hinder the dog the least bit , for he
climbed up among the dishes and
about 1:30 : o'clock , when Elmer was
going by he saw his dog standing-
among the china In the window. He
Immediately got the dog out but not
In time to save about $10 worth of the
china that had been smashed. Elmer
claims that the dog Is worth about
thirty dollars now , and that that Is the
price he will take 'for him.
