It. Skinner, of tne dcpiwtim nt of uublic
instruction, informs us tliat "tin; Btlee
tiou of the oldenrod was due pi incipnll v
to the fact that the country district did
not promptly s nil in the result of the
Votes taken in the country district
schools. This r. suit whs mxle public on
th .first of July. Additional repot ts
wlili citna in from tli; c-nintry district
reduced the plurality f the golden rod to
about 600. and it is very pmlmlilv that if
all the school com.nis-ioncrs of thu state
had reported t us the rust; would have
been cnoosui instead ef the oldf-nnid.
The cities voted largely for :l: J v ' n
rod." The city children evidently hid u bet
ter idea of what they wnnt;-d than the
country children, and this is not sti tinge.
To them the goldenrod, which they see
mostly duriDg the summer vacation, is
the flower associated with the pleasant
days of recreation, days of sunshine, of
freedom and enjoyment. This flower
will not grown, h ss in tin ir esteem, and
the better they know it the more will
they admire it. Vick'sMagazine for De

The Weeping Water Republican has
but recently discovered that the com
missoncr business was a fraud. It was
not a fraud two years ago win nan
election was called on a petition without
investigation and which contained scores
of names written by one man, merely to
fill up and be counted. Of course that
was fair from the Republican standpoint
because it was in ths interests of Weep
ing Water. But now that the board
proposes to look into the petition and
count only those entitled to it under the
law there is a great howl. The commis
sioners have stated positively that the
elaclion shall be called promptly after
thfy have investigated the petition, if
. . . i -. - . - . . .-wl in pnntnln 1 1 m rr-
trr-i pcuuuu -
qmred number of names of legal voters.
What more could an honest man ask for?
What more could a community in fair
ness ask for? The petition is presented
at a time when the board by law is com
,.n.i in ml,-" settlement with the
county treasurer; that duty can not be
neglected to please the fancies of any
petitioners; ytt the board has and is
spending much of it3 time on this peti
tion; but they dare not do so to the
exclusion of other business simply that
tho election may be called a day or a
week sooner. This spirit of spite and
hatred towards Plattsmouth is the only
reason wby certain men have made them
selves prominent in signing and circula
ting this petition. We have not a word
of criticism against any. person whose
interests would be subserved by a c tange
to Louisville, in his advocating that
theory. But to see Todd, Pollard and
others whose only desire is to injure
some one, working to have the co it
house moved farther away from tbem,
would be ridiculous wtre it not born of
such malice and hatred. They arc will
ing to lose one dollar if they can make a
Plattsmouth man lose ten, a line basis
indeed for a county seat fight. Take the
business men of Weeping Water, is it to
thir interest to build up a competitor
ne?iAby? Would they do it on business
principles? Or is it solely spite worn?
To an outsider it seems the latter, and to
our personal knowleJge there are scores
of men in Weeping Water who are not
built that way and who will vote square
ly for self interest, which is to have the
county seat remain where it is, or else
have it mved to Weeping Water. The
Hekald wishes to be fair in this matter
throughout and we like to see the same
spirit manifested by our adversaries.
