WEEKLY HERALD: PLATTSMOUTH, NEBRASKA, JULY 17, 1890.
Highest of all in Leavening Tower. U. S. Gov't Report, Aug. 17, 1889.
Our Contemporary Imposed Upon.
In yesterday's iwsue of the Journal tip
pen re. I the billowing:
"Miuut 1 oYlock last Thursday morn
ing, Iv White with half a dozen teams
was bringing a lot of hogs to I'latts
tnouth. A man named IJrown was driv
ing the leading team through the timber
ulong the ride south of Hock Bluffs
when suddenly a man pprang out of the
woods, halted the team and demandel
the driver's money at the mouth of a
cocked revolver. Brown told the robber
hat he had struck the wrong man he
hadn't any money. The robber then
told him t go on he had no use for
Lim. He thea waited for the next team.
-As it drove up lie sprang up to the side
o the driver and made a similar demand.
He had .clearly struck the wrong man
that time, for he had hardly got the
words out of his luouth, when smack!
The driver struck him in the face
knocked him off the wagon and yelled
f or lielp to the other on-coin;ng drivers.
With tftat the would-be robber picked
himself up and ran into the woods, the
driyerfter him. He got away, but hap
made -no further demonstrations. Friday
night the same drivers brought in a lot
more hogs, but saw no robber."
Evidently some one imposed upon the
credulity of our contemporary, and now
is having a laugh in his slevee at the
Here are the facts in relation to the
matter as they occurred and as they ap
eared in the Herald as far back as last
"Mr. Ivan White, farmer and stork
raiser, south of Rock Bluffs, delivered to
Wiley 'Black this morning seven loads of
fat hos, weighing in the aggregate 11,- j
200 pounds, for which he received the
snug'um of $&;).0. He has six more
load f fat porkers to bring up tomor
To avoid the excessive heat of the day
.Mr. White's teamsters started for the city
with their loads, at 1 o'clock a. m. and
report a stranger stepping out of the
brusli a little thN side of Mr. White's
place, and sauntering along managed to
scrutinize two of the drivers, in a man
ner to indicate that lie was looking for
8'inie one, but evidently seeing no chance
or "holding up any one, there heing
three men, in that division of the team
sters, he slunk off in the brush again.
One of the drivers passed some words
with him, and declares his ability to
identify him should he hear his voice
aain. 1 he stranger stated he was
coming to Plattsmouth."

and you'll get the news as it occurs.

Johnny Moore went to Lincoln yester
day to take the place of a Mr. Mitchell
for a few days, in Mr. Waterman's office,
Mr. Mitchell being sick.
The shot) bors think it foolish for
Plattsmouth peop'e to complain of dry
weather so long as tliey have ten saloons.
We hear some of the boys say they
don't think it will make much difference
if Nebraska does get prohibition, 'for
they will then have "original packages"
to substitute for the saloon.
m The grading on the Omaha and South
ern is being done right up. There are
176 teams now on the grade between

Mr. Chas. Krecek's men returned to the
lumber yard this morning, and he goes
to Lincoln to run a gang there for Mr,
J. II. Waterman.
The boys at the store house made up a
purse of $20.2.") for Mr. E. II. Misncr of
South Park, whose wife lias been sick
and kept him from work.
Mr. John Adams, who is learning the
machinist's trade, but has been up to
Omaha Medical Infirmary taking a treat
ment for a cataract in his eye, was seen
in the ysrds this morning,
O. T. Wood, who got a nail torn off
his finger last Friday, returned to work
Chas. Carroll lias sold his village pro

The mercury got up 110 in the shade
here last Sunday and remained so for
about four hours.
Harvey Archer, who has been 6ick
with remittant fever for some time,
much better and able to be around.
Harvesting is in lull blast now,
Wheat is a fair crop but oats are not so
good as a rule, being very short an
rather light in weight.
The census enumerator, W. B. Allan,
reports eleven hundred and ten persons
in this precinct.
The amount of rainfall in the month
of June at this place was inches, while
this month so far, the 14th, we have
only had one-sixteenth of an inch.
It looks now as if we would be com
pelled to eat small potatoes for the next
year. The early potato yines are dying,
wrth the potatoes not more than half
grown; and the extreme dry weather
makes it look very doubtful abomt the
late potatoes making up the deficiency of
the early crop.
Harrison Smith went out to the stable
last Sunday and found one of his marea
dead. He does not know what was the
cause of her death, unless she was over
come with the heat by reason of her
having the heaves.

in the cattle yard, a very shallow well
only about ten feet deep, and they had
no thought of there being damps in it.
He had gone down to clean it out, but
had to be taken out after be had sent up
one bucket of dirt.
Now You See It and Now You Don't.
We publish below, by request, the call
for a peoples convention, signed by P.
Hens-haw, Jos. Chapman and L. O Todd.
The call is rather vague and indefinate
in as much as it refers to a circular and
announces that all persons who accept
the declarations of principles published
therein, may consider them
selves peoples party men or words to
that effect. The signature of tJov
Todd from the east end of the county, is
a dead giyc-away on the programme. A
man, who has been running a peoples
party of his own from time immemorial
that is, when he could get a nomination
on 6OIU6 ticket or an opportunity to
make a green h;ickspeech; also Jthe ap
portionment will at once show the labor
ing men or members of the industrial
organizations of Plattsmouth city, the
names in which Gov. Todd and the peo
ples so-called state committee, go about
political matters. Look at it! Gov.
Todd's precinct, Liberty, is given ten
delegates, the third ward of Plattsmouth
four, and the fourth ward three, while
cither one of these wards contain five
actual laboring men belonging to indus
trial organizations, to one in Gov. Todd's
precinct, and either one of these wards
pay almost double the tax into our
county treasury than does Gov. Todd's
precinct. Can the Gov. and his peoples
committee tell us why this is? Can they
explain why Louisville precinct has only
five delegates under this call and Center
and Eight Mile Groye have ten each?
If the call is what it pretends to be
"based on the industrial organizations
in the wards and precincts" then the dis
honesty of the performance is so appar
ent that it "suicides abornin." If it i?, in
reality a movement by which the gentle
men in charge of it have dished up an
apportionment by which they can nomin
ate themselves for office. Why donit
they say so at once. Inviting precincts
to send in delegates to a movement like
this, when they go into it with their eyes
open and their hands tied, must be the
work of men of Goy. Todd's calibre in
