The Journal man can't tell a velocipede
fr"in a mogul engine; his story about a

"light engine" that crossed the bridge
that day was Posey M ssersmith on u

The Alliance to name, the democratic
party indorse a state ticket. The dem
ocratic party to name and the alliance to
indorse tho three congressmen, both

of her own and don't intend to be given

A GALA WEDDING.
The Roth-Weckbach Nuptials Cele
brated this Afternoon.
Mr. Frederick Roth and Miss Annio
Weckbach were married today at the
residence of the brides parents in this
city. The groom is a prominent business
man In Grand Island and already has a
haudsomehome furnished for occupancy
of the newly wedded pair. Miss Annie
Weckbach is the well known daughter
of J. V. Weckbach Esq., and is one of
Plattsmouths brightest girls, her genial
ways and kindly manners made her a
host of friends. She will ho greatly missed
in a larger circle than that of the Weck
bach family. Mr. Roth is indeed fortu
nate in his choice.
At a few minutes past 2 o'clock, the
spacious parlors, glowing in the gas light
and decorated w ith beautiful bouquets of
flowers, were crowded with the friends
of the bride and groom. Miss Minnie
Guthman struck up the wedding march
as the bridal party entered the parlor at
the north door, little Katie Weckbach
heading the party and carrying a hand
some basket of flowers, then came Kate
Heinple and Chas. Weckbach, cousin and
brother of the bride, then F. Tschouder
a friend of the groom and May Weck
bach, sister of the bride, followed by the
bride and groom.
The party passed into the south parlor
on the west side, where Rev. Father
Kearney, in the beautiful impressive
form of the Catholic church performed
the marriage ceremony .
The bride wore a dress of white silk
batiste with diamond ornaments, a cor
sage bouquet of Marschal Neil roses and
white veil with wreath of lilies. After
the ceremony, congratulations were
showered upon the happy couple, until
dinner was announced, when a sumptuous
feast was partaken of by a host of friends
The presents consisting of many useful
and ornamental articles, were rich and
expensive, one room of the house being
almost entirely occupied with enough to
set up two or three couples at house
keeping. Among the many guests from abroad
the Herald noticed Wm Krug, Gust and
Wm Weckbach and families of Omaha;
Major Kleutsch and daughter, Mrs.
Carpenter and Mr. Bigar of Lincoln; Miss
Breed. Miss Lou Engel, of Hastings; Mr.
Huml)crt and family and Mrs. Autrid, of
Omaha; Miss Helen and James Stander,
Louisville; Peter Stander and wife, South
Bend. With many others whom we
did not know.
The Hkrai.d in common with all the
good ieople of Plattsmouth extends best
wishes, and sincere hopes for prosperity
The hypocrite who runs the Journal
has never shown the least respect for the
feelings of others, he has times without
number jumped upon and shamefully
abused some of our lest citizens without
cause or wairant, and for a man of his
ilk to talk about malice of the lowest
order, as though he wera a teacher of
public purity is certainly a fine exhibition
of pure gall. He shows the base calum
uitor that he is by saying that the local
editor of the Herald in any manner
threw a straw in Mr. Peterson's way.
He even accepts the charge of
the Omaha Herald wherein it
says "Sherman telegraphed that he did
not know Peterson," with out a word of
denial, in order that he might quote it
against us. They are welcome to all they
can make out of their plea of injured
inmcence but they must not carry the
matter too far- The fact that we scooped
the Journal in printing the article hurt
Mr. Shermans feelings far worse than the
mere mention of Mr. Petersons name in
connection with the arrest.
