alleged. He seems to be an honest
man and we are glad he is able to clear
himself of the crime imnlied.

The exhibition of trained dogs in

feature, and excited much more admiring
comment than any other part of the enter
tainment. . It also infused into many dog
owners a desire to have theirs traind up
into ways that are wise and tricks that
are cute. Among others, on the day fol
lowing the show's visit, Sheriff Eikenbary
might have been observed giving his hand
some clog its hrst lessons in picking up

Last Tuesday were laid away the
mains of little Bertie, youngest son of Mr.
any Mrs. D. B. Smith. One of the most
bright and promising, the idol of parent's,
brothers and sisters, ypt he was snatched
away in the sweetest bloom of his youth.
Almot to young to understand the real
meaning of such words, yet, he alwayg
called himself alittle"Band of Hope"boy,
and could sing all their little temperance
songs. Perhaps the Good Father had
some wise purpose in view, when he took
him home. But we know he is for
ever safe from the temptations of this

A Question?
And one the Hkkald would like answer
ed by the proper authorities is wether this
ofliee, after h;iving been awarded the con
tract for tho city printing by making the
lowest bill for it, is etitilled to receive it
or not? Tiie Hkkald wus duly given the
contract to do the city printing, but some
one without any warrant of authority had
the printing of the tickets for the late
bond election done at another office. The
value of the work is a mere nothing but
we deny that any person whatever had
the right to tike it anywhere except to
this oflice, and having done so the city
is not liable for a'cent and should not al
low the bill, wc ask the council to throw it
out when presented and to censure tho of
ficial or'pcrson who has been guilty of this
breech of contract with the Hkkald.

Karnes, R. W. Clement, H. M. Swartz, F.
M. Keman, J. C. Johnson, C. 13. Roder
and W. D. Rose, telegrugh operators,
went over to Pacific Junction to attend a
meeting of the O. R. T., and report hav
ing had a good time, there being about
forty in attendants, representing the C.&
N. W., C. R. I. & 1'., C.B. & K. C, Mo.
Pac., Wabash, C. B. & Q., B. & M. and
U. P. The meeting was held In the Odd
Fi How's hall.
This order is known as "Order Railway
Telegraphers" and is one year old and
numbers over 3.000 members, but expects
to increase to 10,000 by the time of the
next annual meeting (June 18S7) to be
held at Indianapolis, Ind.
Their objects are meeting together to
establish a brotherly feeling toward each
other, to debate the different questions
upon the service most beneficial to
themselves and the company which they
represent. Opposing the use of strong
drink. No man can become a member
who makes nse of it either while on or off
duty. They oppose a strike r using in
fluence in aiding one, also obligating
themselves to not teach the art of teleg
raphy,and with a decrease each year from
the ranks by death and disability oth
ers engaging in merehaufile pcrsv.its
ladies retiring to care for household or
shop, new roads being'. r.ew of. ices
being opened, and no students bing
manufactured to fill the daces, it will, in
the course of a short time, make a de
mand for the man to fill the places in
stead of tramping in search or a job from
the Atlantic to the Pacific.
With these principles in view they
hope to increase the wages paid at the
present time.
At present there are too many students
turned out who are mere school boys and
are willing to work for board and clothes
in order to be telegraph operators; not
thinking or caring for the lives or thous
ands of dollars worth of property trusted
to their keeping.
With all these principles combined
they mean to give their employers a man
that can give close sober end
industrious, and one that can. take an in
terest in their work and try to be a cred
it to all that they claim.
Last Sunday the Swedish church iu
this city entertained about 200 of their

The editor of the Weeping Water
IZayle made this oflice a pleasant call a
shoit time ago, which we mentioned in
our last issue, and going home says in
his paper: "Not being able to stay with
the people of the city of great expecta
tions any longer, we took our departure,
but not before wo called upon the Knotts
Bros., of the Herald, who are still stran
gers in the city, and who will, when
they become better known, be valued for
their true worth." Thanks, brother Race,
come again when you can remain longer,
and we hope to be in the next time you
The Louisville Observer has these
words of good cheer which we will
strive to continue to deserve, for which
we also return our thanks; "The Platts
mouth Hekald has improved each week
under its new managers, the Knotts Bros.
It is one of the best family newspapers
published in the state."
The Rural Park Plcnic(?)
The Rural Park picnic Sunday was an
affair all good citizens must feel was
most disgraceful. The amount of beer
swilled was something marvellous. The
lowest statement we have heard is that
ninety kegs were drank, tuj highest, that
there were one hundred tnd seventy,
with the probabilities that the actual
number is somewhere between. Fights
were frequent enough to afford oppor
tunities for all who felt any desire to
participate, while late in the afternoon
coarse profanity could be heard on all
sides almost continuously.
A large part of the crowd came down
from Omaha, it was swelled and made
worse by all the iGiifeia Plattsmouth can
boast of, cither resident or vi.-iting, and
it made an inharmonious whole after be
ing well soaked in beer, hence the fights.
Oh, it was hilarious if not joyful, and
boozy if not restful and refreh:):g.
The picnic had bees extensively ad
vertised, zXid the people of Plattsmouth
felt such an interest in the successful
opening of what we had hoped and do
hone would prove a popular pleasure
resort that a largo number of our most
respectable citizens went out, many of
them accompanied by tlnir families.
Their presence lent respectability to the
crowd for a time, and in a measure kept
it toned down or there is no telling to
what degree the revelry would have ex
tended. It is safe to say another such
affair will end their patronage.
We want to see Rural Park lecome a
popular resort for recreation. It is a
lovely place naturally, and a small
amount of money judiciously expended
will greatly improve it, but humbly en
ter our protest against any point in this
vicinity being made a Sunday beer gar
den of the lowest order for all southeast
ern Nebraska.

Bkatkick ICxpnss: Will democratic
papers ever get through explaining the
president's battle flag order t When tho
order was first issued a protest indignant
and loud went up from the patriotic peo
ple, and expressions of disgust were heart!
on every hand. The inginuity of tho
democratic organs was brought intopluy,
and column after column was written
to explain, modi fy and deny statements
made Concerning it. They had taken a
heavy contract and the zeal with whicb
they work nt it clearly demonstrates that
they regard it as such. Having said all
that could be said in defense of the exec
utive they saw what a miserable failure
they had made and are now trying to
patch the matter up. The present tactics
is to raise a huge cry against Fairchild,
Tuttle and others, and let loose tho cry
of the bloody shirt, iu the hope that iu
all the dust that will be raised, the orig
inal point of controversy will le lost
sight of. The indignation of the obi
soldiers was not aroused simply because
the president had violated the law in is-,
suing the order, but because we ha u
chief executive that would, undp.r any
circumstances surrender thut which
through bravery and sufTerir.rr our sol
diers had won. When tho forced back
down came, the reasons usbigned by the
president never absolved him from any
motive behind the order, but based it
wholly on tho ground of illegality. The
inference is irresistible that if there were
any legal waj open, the president would
yet order Vue flags returned. The mud
throwing at Fairchild and Tuttle can not
dace the president or his defenders in
any position other than of cringing for
southern popularity.
Prohibition in Iowa.
The Des Moines llcyisttr comes to the
defense of prohibition in Iowa, and tells
what it has accomplished. It docs not
claim that the law is Pterally enforced,
but it is, it says, being enforced as much
as any other law in Iowa, and in due time
it will be enforced even better than the
other laws of the moral and criminaS
code. Meantime
It has dosed 2,o00 of the places of
murder in which every day old men used
to be let down a step nearer the druuk
ark's grave, nnd eyery night ' youg men
trapped into the footsteps toward pollu
tion and destruction. It has diminished
the number of criminals in the peniten
tiary, and made fifty-two jails empty. It
has made tens of thousands of Iowa
homes happy with a joy anil alight which
tho saloons would never allow in them
so 1 ong as it was allowed to exist. It has
helped tens of thousands of men, once
weak, to hold up their heads and look
Gon and man in the face. It ha taken
tens of thousands of poor women who
used to be more afraid of the. coming;
home of their husbands at night than the
coming of any wild beast, poor, pitifnl
helpless women who used to have no pro
tection under heaven cr before nipii bat
their faith in Ood and prayer, and givt-a
to their faces the light of returner joy
and permanent peace. It has taken tens
of thousands of children who never knew
of their fathers only to fear them, and
who used to go hungry, ill-clad and out
