The city wants to haul off your trash. Senator Skinner's message may be of interest to you. Go hear it. "No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold to the one and despise the other." What is the use of going away from home to finance a hotel enter prise? Of course if it must be done we will have to do it. We need the hotel There are two sides to every question. If it was not so there ■would be no question. Don't lose your head and think you are the whole cheese. A pleasing personality too fre quently causes us to lose sight of the abstract principle.

A great many people will be in attendance on the Fort Worth Bai ley meeting who will never be able to state positively just who footed the bill for their day's outing. But what's the use. It all helps to put money in circulation. Davidson, that "fool lawyer," con tinues to win out in his fight against the trusts. All this makes it easy to understand why the representatives of trusts do not want to see him elected for another term as attorney general. -More the reason why he should be elected. The Waco Times-Herald says: "A Colorado preacher calls a skating rink hell on wheels, and now won't somebody please describe for us the feelings of John Henry Kirby when he comes to swear allegiance to Bry an and Campbell?" There are just lots of fellows having funny feelings ; at this stage of the game. While you are "cussing" every- I thing and everybody don't foiget that the things and individuals! "cussed' may be just as essential to! the well being of the people in gen- 1 eral and the democratic party in i particular as you. or the things rep- j resented by you.

Yes, Bob, they will all be there that can be persuaded to take a "day off'' at the expense of the other fellow, and Bome will be there at their own expense, but how about the two hundred thousand or more who will stay at home.

Washington, Mar. 26. -Politicians j attribute a hidden significance to the visit of William Jennings Bryan in j Washington today. The establish i ment of Johnson headquarters here i and In New York and in other east ! <·πι cities, and rumors of a plan to i capture the eastern delegations to 'Denver lor the Minnesota man, have caused some trepidation among the Nebraskan's supporters in Washing ton. Mr. Bryan will hold several im ! portant conferences with democrat leaders in Washington today. Tomorrow Mr. Bryan will invade Pennsylvania, one of the strongholds of the opposition to his candidacy, speaking tomorrow evening in Pitts ; burg. Reports state that the members ! of the Pennsylvania Bryan League have aranged an elaborate reception for their chief, and that his appear ance in the Smoky City will mark the beginning of a determined cam paign to contest the state delegation in the interest of the Nebraskan. From Pittsburg Mr. Bryan will go to Parkersburg, W. Va., and thence to Kansas City. Mo., where he will be the guest of honor at one of the greatest political banquets ever held in the west, to be held Monday night On Tuesday he will be in Lincoln and will entertain the democrat and populist editors of Nebraska at a banquet. Later next week he will be gin a western tour that will include cities and towns in Kansas, Colo rado. Nebraska and Iowa. j While Mr. Bryan is engaged in I swinging around the circle, liis op i ponents in the east will be busily en I gaged in manufacturing Johnson j thunder, in the hope of preventing i the Nebraskan's nominatlcn for the presidency. The anti-Bryanites hope to secure control of the delegations from New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Deleware and Massachusetts, with possibly several others. In New York, the Bryan opposition is head ed by Mayor McClellan and Charles] F. Murphy, while other prominent ! politicians have taken the lead in j other eastern states. While John- | son Is considered the logical choice j of th? anti-Bryanites, either Judson 1 Harmon of Ohio, of Judge Gray of j Delaware, would be acceptable as a | compromise. rvnucii lîii'oirrs.
