Our worthy champion and brother,

he commend Capt. Will Ackerman,
for the manner in which he main
tained order. We are pleased to

great help to us in the future.

Mr. C. W. Sherman in a happy
speech eulogized the host in well
chosen terms, and presented him on
behalf of his friends in remem
brance of his sixty-first birthday, a
handsome gold lined silver cup and
saucer. Colonel Vanatta feelingly
responded, saying among other
things that he was combative
and did not mind a fight but that
kindness overwhelmed him, and
he could hardly find words to ex
press his sincere thanks for the
beautiful token of friendship which
he had just received. A splendid
repast was served, after which
social converse ruled the
hour- until time to retire,
when each guest said good night
and wished the genial host and his

Amenites of Journalism.
The Pnion Ledger devoted a
column of its valuable space to this
paper in a recent issue. After the
editor of that paper had written it
and read it he no doubt saw that
there was neither sense nor truth in
the who'e galley, and he 1 e.-ame
ashamed of it, and rather than to
own it signed it "Fair Play," and
said the writer did not live in
Union, neither was he a Christian.
The latter has our indorsement. We
have no room for such a senseless
article and will not stoop to reply.
Weeping Water Republican.
The Missouri Pacific.
The Weeping Water papers and
some ot tne parties getting signers
to county seat petition have repre
sented that the Plattsmouth exten
sion would not be built this year, if
at all. The following letter from
the general manager to Mr. Ballon,
which we are kindly permitted to
print, settles this matter beyond
further question. The letter reads

St. Louis, March 'A. 1891.
O. H. B alloc, Esq.,
My Dear Sir: Replying to
your letter dated March 1, referring
to finishing the Plattsmouth exten
sion, allow me to say, it isjthe inten
tion of this company to complete
same at the earliest practicable
moment, beginning as soon as con
dition of road-bed and weather will
permit. Material for this extention
is already purchased, and will be
delivered as rapidly as situation
warrants. We have never had any
intention of abandoning the Platts
mouth extention, but on the con
trary intend to push it to final com
pletion. The citizens of Plattsmouth, and
others tributary to the new line,
need have no fears upon this sub
ject. Yours Truly,
S. II. H. Clark,
First Vice Pres.
Mr. Parker Entertained
Quite a company of the friends of
Mr. and Mrs. O. Parker met at their
home two miles south of town last
night and celebrated the anniversa
ry of Mr. Parker's 47th birthday in a
fitting manner. After a nice social
time with singing of Grand Army
songs and telling war stories, all
were seated to a splendid supper, to
which ample justice was done. The
commander of the Post sang the
"Kansas Jayhawker," and they say
he practiced their old tactics by
putting everything eatable out of
sight as fast as he could get to it
except his coffee, which had been
salted hy some one who feared he
was eating too much. After a jolly
time as only the old boys who wore
the blue know how to have, the party
broke up with hearty best wishes
for their genial host and hostess.
Our Colonel Sherman of the Platts
mouth Journal gazed inspiringly
at a band of blanketed Kickapoo
Indians at the depot the other morn

over his smiling countenance as he
leaned up against the lunch count

be mighty lo that would kick a poo
Indian. The crowd in waiting
groaned audibly, and Ticket Agent
Latham who is ever on the alert aft

out to admonish the colonel that if
he inflicted another like that on
the people who were going to travel

The first creditable mention of
Senator Thomas in the Journal, of
this city, we noticed in last night's
paper. it was written by a corre
spondent and reads as follows:
Senator Thomas is a clear-headed,
conscientious member who knows
what is right, and is ready to push
forward the wheels of progress and
make his county and state the best
and most progressive common
wealth in the Union. Had the sen
ate a majority of sucn men as Sam
uel Thomas, Nebraska would be at
least fifty per cent better off than she
now is, and instead of being the
laughing siock, as she is today, bv
the eastern people, would be looked
upon as the brightest star in the
sisterhood of states.
