PLATTSMOUTIJ. Al'IUL U. is.:.
An fxchtue suys: 'iiow towns nro
;c'ltiii up so.-ieiie ainon residents
who own lots, with rules to work for
tlio town. L'aih member agrees to
keep t he w ceils down on his premines
and make u nice l.iwn of his grounds
not used fr garden or flowers. Old
fences arc to be righted up, and the
posts which Btick above the top
hoards an, to be nawed off. Trees
arc to he pruned so ax to lok tidy,
and all brush and rubbish toberukul
up and l-urncd. The streets are to ha
kept perfectly clean from weeds and
brush jn that they present an extend
ed lawn to giow in beauty and or
der." This just strikes t he nail squ.irc
ly on the head to suit us and we move
the formation of a similar society
here. There is no one thing that
would conduce more to the health
nnd e'jojineut of the people than a
perfect system ot yard culture that
readies eb ar to th middle of the
stree. If the whole town doe not
choose to go'i n to it, Set certain st-eets
organize and make their stre.-ts the
finest in the town. This will create ji
strife and work wonder? tn ppr
ances. Why not here?
t'AKTKR Haicrisox, with the m;:-chint-ry
of the municipal government
of the great city of Chicago in his
hands and those of his supporters, was
successful the otlier day in re-electing
himself mayor of thai great city. This
is very luuch to be regretted by all
people who would prefer to see the
better classes rule ami control govern
ment. The gentlemen who eutcri d the con
test agahist Mr. Harrison knew full
well the fearful odds thev had to meet
in securing his defeat, if such an end
were to be accomplished, they knew
they had only the better classes, ill
ways so slow to le aroused, to pit
against the lawless, idle classes of that
great city with her thousands of dram
shops, and her every evil influence, fcr
mouths in training for the conflict. It
takes just such contests to rouse the la
tent conservative force of the law and
order suit of a couiaiunity ; but it will
be roused, now its attention is fuvtd
upon the problem of securing the kind
ui u upie 1:1 i-uisago nor property in
terests demand and now that it -understands
and appreciates the power of
its adversary it will address itself to
the task of inaugurating better rule in
the future. This contest in Chicago?,
and other great cities in this country,
ii calling home to the citizens, the
fait that the question of the hour in
this country is the securing and en
forcement of good, wholesome rule in
our greit centers of population.
Another strong tower has fallen.
Peter Cooper has at last surrendered
to the universal conqueror. At the
age of 91 he has parsed away. He had
belonged to three generations, and for
the greater portion of that long period
he had been one of the best known
and most respected of American citi
zens. Foi llfty years not to know
l'eter Cooper by reputation was to ar
gue oneself unknowing, if not un
known. The outlines of his life, as
sketched lsewhere, will suggest the
reason?. From a shrewd business
man he developed ii.to a great promo
tor of legitimate enterpiises, and
crowded his days with philanthropy
Standing, as the country now does, by
his bier, it is well to look into his face
and note the outlint of his character
and career apart from the facts on the
Of all the eminent men America
h is produced not one can equal l'eter
Cooper as a representative of our
people in their best characteristics.
Upon every feature was written
the word practical, not in the firad
grind sense, nor yet in the distinctive
ly prudential sense of Dr. Franklin.
He was liberal always, and was not at
all indebted to penuriousness for Ids
great wealth. lie did not get rich by
Cheating or oppressing somebody. Xo
poor man could blame l'eter Cooper
for his poverty. Honesty was not
with him the rigid requirements of the
law. He would have scorned a proit
made by grinding tbe poor or squeez
ing the rich. To take advantage of
another was foreign to ids nature. So,
too, was the penny wise policy which
runs through the counsels of "Poor
Richard. ,' He was a broadgauged man
in everything. He was tho very es
SJnseof honesty, and might well stand
as a rebuke lo those low ideas of in
tegrity which are poisoning the springs
of traffic and tainting the air of trade.
Ciiicago Inter Ocean.
At the great ago ot niuety-t.vo ami
fall of honor?, l'eter Cooper, of New
York Ciiy, has pa-sed away. Meas
ured by one staudard we are apt. to
ar.ply to our distinguished citizens in
this country, perhaps Mr Coop-r
emild not bo called a jrront man, be
has nver demanded or revived fioin
the peopl ' or ihe country, positions
of tru.-t and promiu -in e in either h r
serw-e or cuiuc'R II.; In been,
however, a prominent figure in Amer
ican aflairi for uearly half a century.
He was a self-made man, an encour
ager of manufacturers; from his young
days, he engaged in the development
of our resources in the manufacture
of cloth, glue, isinglass an J iron. It
is said he built after his own design,
the tirol locomotive engine construct
ed 'upon this cou;inent. He look
great interest in the development of
the electric telegraph; he was thor
oughly cotneraut with the resource'
of this country His greatest ambi
tion sfemed to be to see his eouutrv
advanced aud her industrial classes
educated, ami elevated; to the accom
plishment of this object be gave large
srims of money. Sic was tbe founder
of lli ! '-Union for the advancement of
Science and Art" known as Cooper's
Institute in New York City, erected
arid endowed by Mr. Cooper at an
im men tic cost, aud dedicitel to the
workiug cl ies of New York City.
I'etor Cooper's great desire in life, as
evidenced by his works and the ex
penditure ot larrge sums of money,
was to assist and elevate the laboriug
classes of his fellow countrymen. He
desired their education. His educa
tion consisted iu his attending school
half ot each day for one 3"car only.
He coin men ced life a poor boy, by
his own exertions he became a rich
man, who ucver forgot for a moment,
th sous of toil from whose ranks he
arose, aud herein the Herald finds
aud points out his true nobleness and
greatness. A long, busy life, so lived
and spent, that at the going down of
the suti, the old man could look
back from the window of his sou',
(already opening upon the great here
after) upon a life of good works,, well I
f pent in behalf of . struggling human
ity. A life of "peace on earth,' good
wiJJ iu mtn." Peter Cooper in the
true acceptslion of the term was a
ffrit wtn. - ' "
Tin: murderers of ilr. Millett, ot
Hastings, have met the righteous
wrath of an outraged coin in unity ; and
while every reflective mind must de
precate the very idea of lynch law, if
capital punishment is to be practiced
in this country, it is surely this class
of criminals who should meet the ter
rible avenger. We think, however, no
one will or can argue successfully, that
this taking the law into the hands of
a community, will prevent or restrain
thw murderer from taking the life of
his victim. .Murders will occur so
lug as murderers are born and edu
cated; and no punishment, however
swift and sure, will deter the hardened
wretch from taking the life of his vic
tim, when moved by the fierce passions
of his depraved being, or tempted by
the uncontrollable desire for his fel
low man's property. This taking of
human life is the punishment for vio
lating the iirst great law prohibiting
t ie shedding of blood Ilia killing of
man by his brother. While the out
raged community of Hastings have
visited this sudden and swift punish
ment upon these depraved men, doubt
less from motives which always sug
gest themselves to the minds of an
outraged community, viz., of seeing
that adequate punislirneiit is meted out
at once; still a stigua will rest upon
the community, and the perpetrators of
the tragedy, as well as their fellowciti-
zena who looked on approvingly, who
will in their calmer moments regret
that the good name of their law-abiding
community has been sullied by
such a spirit of lawlessness upon the
part of the citizens. Especially w ill
this be the case in a community whre
the courts have always enforced the
criminal laws speedily and fearlessly.
To snm it all up, this lynching was an
exhibition of passion upon the part of
the couimunity, which good citizens
