The cheapness of land around Plattsmouth and its nearness to Omaha markets togclher with good
railroad facilities, make it not only a pleasant place to reside, but a desirable place for the establishment
of manufactories, and they are coming. While real estate values are growing more firm each day;, yet
there is nothing speculative or fictitious about them, and good residence lots can be bought at from $lSO
to 25; land near the city can be purchased at from $1W to 2S per acre. Within the next twelve
mdnths our city expects to welcome the Missouri Pacific and the Omaha and Southern Maiiways into its
corporate limits.
These are tacts and our city is well prepared tor a boom. JSow is the time lor you to invest m ooutu i-aric I'roperty. ALany jots nave aireau oeen soiu ana a nuiaoer 01 xiauudome uuLtuea are now yonig up m

Died At her homo in Greenwood, at
10 o'cloc k a. m., Thursday, Sept. 1, 18S7,
Miss Jane Coleman, iu her 61st year.
The deceased was born in Coshocton
county, Ohio, Dec. G, 1826, and as a
child moved with her parents to Knox
county, Ohio, where she resided until
1830, when she removed to Henry coun
ty, Iowa. Twelve years later, in 18G2,
she agaiu moved westward, settling on
Salt creek, in the then territory of Neb
raska. She had been a church member
for over thirty years, and was one of six
to organize the Greenwood Congrega
tional church, iu 1864.
She had been in poor health for over
thirty years, but was confined to her bed
for only ten days prior to her death.
The funeral occurred at the Congrega
tional church at 2 p. m. to-day, the in
terment being made at Loders' grave
yard, near Ashland.
The deceased leaves a number of rela
tives, most of whom arc residents of
Greenwood and vicinity. The Leader
in common with the entire community
extends its sympathy.
"Socialism" in Free America.
Since the "socialists" of New York
have been kicked out of the Labor party
by Henry George and his associates, they
have become impudent and noisy in
their threats of incendiarism, rapine and
murder. They are as furious against
the leaders of the Labor party as they
used to be against their old-time ene
mies, Prince Bismarch and Emperor
William. They threaten to make short
work of the people of America. They
professed to be firm friends of the work
ingmcn as long as they had hopes of be
ing treated to free beer and appointed or
elected to fat offices; but after the Labor
party was formed and they had been de
nied admission to it, they began to
breathe fire and slaughter against the
very pe rsons with whom they were eo
eager to associate.
The "American socialist" is very much
given to beer and' bluster. He is com
paratively harmless except in times of
great public disturbances. Then he is
likely to become dangerous. The Ilay
market massacre in Chicago a year ago
last May shows how willingly the social-
' and his fellow, the anarchist, will m-
l" t the work of death and destruc-augm.
tion. The assurance and the iguoranca
of these pests are equally monumental.
They are lazy, worthless wretches, who
only come to the country because they
were driven from their own countries
In theory they are professional cutthroats,
but in practice they are cowards of the
lowest type. They dare not stand up
for what they call their theories on their
native soi4, because the iron heel of Bis
marck would crush them out of exis
tence, the czar of Russia would order
them to be knouted or set t work in
Siberia, and the republic of France
would send them to the galleys or into
exile. But taking advantage of our
widely-proclaimed free institution the
dirty horde comes here thinking that it
can do as it pleases.
It is useless to deny the fact that
these incindiaries are dangerous. Al
though they arc too cowardly to strike
in open warfare against society, they
still can resort to the torch and the dyn
amite bomb. Their meetings should be
dispersed and their newspapers sur
pressed. Free speech is one thing and
license another. Perhaps the hanging
of the condemned anarchists in Chicago
may have a salutory effect upon the
ruffians, " and that interesting event
should be postponed no longer than i3
absolutory necessary. Hastings Gazette
