of Plattsmouth was haiidsi'mtly deco
riitect, a.ii'J ua'l maue ample una generou
provisions for the reception and enter
tainmeut of her honored gues-ts. As
result the boys were well received on
their f nival the citizens vieing with
each other to do honor to tneii- soldier
visitors. To the casual observer, who
suv the Nebraska boy congregate
knots u the street corners ai:d in quiet
nool s to discuss the war, it appeared as
though these little bands of Nebrask
troops vcre the fellows thr.t put down
the rebellion. At any rate it seemed to
be clearly proven that Major Pearman
of the 2nd, succeded in cutting his way
out, and preventing his command from
being stampeded, when surrounded on
the pliina by a lone Indian.
Selwin Ivincaid was on trial for being
drunk and disorderly. C. S. Polk pros
ecuted and John A. Davies appeared for
the defence. The defendant was found
guilty and fined $5 and costs which he
ws rustling for to pay up. .
Elisha O'Neill got "oriode" and was

drunk anu went his way promising to

$5 and costs for his fun aud in default
of funds he was sent to iail.

run in last evening for a plain drunk, as
he hardly ever puts on any frills and
flounces common to most of the fraterni

ways has plenty of money. lie laid in
jail all night and when he was brought
before Judge Archer he plead guilty and
was fined $ 10 and costs, with an injunc

would double the fine for each succeed

doubtless feeling that his lioozes were
getting to be too expensively luxurious
for a man of h's moderate tustts.

F'iom Friday's Daily.
Peter Bates vas fifty seven years obi
yesterday and although it was the first
time he had ever been fifty-seyen years
c;kl, yet he wus not impressed with the
importance of tha event and went about
his busines.'i as usual. Seme of hie
brothers nrcd sisters in the I. O. O. F.
lodge however concluded to do him up,
which they did in good style and with
singular completeness. Mr Bates is the
j initor of the Odd Fellows' IJall, and
when he was notified to open the hall
for a special meeting of the Rebeccas,
l.e obeyed the summons without any
misgivings, though the number present
was barely a quorum, and while the
obliging janitor was putting out the
lijrhts and closing the hall, those present
slipped out and joined the crowd that h
already asse mbled at the Bates mansion
and waited but a few moments for the
head of the house to appear. He came
in on the crowd and was astonished be
yond measure at meeting so many friends
without notice; uader such circumstances
he surrendered gracefully and told every
body to make themselyes at home which
they did. Coffee aud cake were seryert
and an exceptionally nice social lime was
had until a late hour, when the crowd
numbering 85 persons sought their homes.
As a memorial of the wholesale visit,
Peter now occupies a nice revolving
chair and eats his mush and milk out of
a very handsome bowl with salver and
pitcher to match. Mrs. Bates was also
remembered with a mush and milk set.
Mr. Bates can bo thankful that ho is only
57 and bas snch a host of warm friends
to help him celebrate a birthday anci -versary.

and the people of Cass county. Judge
Mux well rendering a decision on the
bond question iu their favor. It seems
that Cass county is in the control of a
few men, these, backed by a corrupt
judge, who mocks at right and justice,
and upholds the basest fraud by his
ruticttr, completely enslaving the masses
of the county. The people are indignant,
they are amused to a sense of the slav
ery they are subjected to, by tue miuioui
of the law, and a band of unserupulu
men, who would not hesitate to call all
the devils in hell to their assistance, or
to crucify their Saviou a second time, if
the could accomplish their hellish pur
pose by so doing.

Value or'ue would not have reversed the
decision of Judge Broady, who after
bearing the evidence in the Cuso declared
the election void, on accouut of ihe
fraudulent votes of Plattsmouth.
The question of the location of lull
has in en in doubt for many ages, aud it
remained for Cass county to uncover the
spot within her limits, the cru.it wis
found to be extremely thin in that part
of the country for a. miljortwo wtsti-.nd
south of the place where the waters of
the Platte unite v.'itli the Missouri.
Right there was found the headquarters
of Satan's dominions, with brauclu-s at
Omaha, Italy and New York. Here; a
board of trade is established, with un
limited power to call for and get any
thing they wiint except a certain piece of
artillery. This one thing, liko the tree
in the Garden of Eden, rvas forbidden
them, but they broke the commands of
Satan iu this respect, and west for the
gun. It was a futile effort. It in turn
opened i;s mouth, and in thunder tones
spoke to the people of enslaved Cass.
Rise up as to one man and pull down
the temple erected by lying, cheating,
swearing, drinking, stuffing and every
known vice that a board of trade at
Plattsmouth could devise.
The voting and taxpaying people of
old Cass propose to have a hand in the
administration of this county. They
propose that their voices and votes shall
be counted, cot in opposition to any
legal voter of the county, but against
any and all sueh yotes that are illegally
cast against them.
The votes have been monkeyed with
on this question long enough. That
board of trade and its one sided and
narrow minded backer (Maxwell) haye
transferred the war from hell to Italy, to
the hayseeds and wage workers of what
herctofare has been called Cass county.
Let the war go on. There never will
be peace and harmony in Cass county as
long as these self constituted rulers de
ceivers and thieves, have the power to
stuff a ballot box, or corrupt a judge to
back them up in doing it.
