A Citizen on tbe Slocninb Law.
Mh. Editor: As a license law, we
believe the Slocurub license law to be
one of the best in the United States. And
all the people of Plattsmouth are desir
ing is that the provisions of tbis law be
complied with. It is therefore the ob
ject of the meeting tonight at the M. E.
church to simply provide ways and
means for the enforcemant of this law.
You will observe that a little has already
been accomplished, and that, too, under
the most trying circumstances. We have
no doubt but that a majority of the city
council are in favor ot granting license,
but we did expect that when we bronght
in a witness, a minor, to whom it is be
lieved, Mr. Fred Goossold whiskey, that
the council would give us a respectful
heariag. But instead thereof they thea
and there, with the witness on the stand,
ever the head of Mayor Smith,dismissed
the case without a hearing. Is it any
wonder that we are compelled to take
these cases into the district court or for
ever drop the matter? But let it be re
membered this cause will not thus drowu
it may be defeated for a time, justice
may be trampled on for a season, but
there is a power behind the throne that
will be felt, and men who have been
placed in position by the influence of the
temperaace people, of whom better
things were and ought to have been ex
pected will please remember that this
thing will not be soon forgotten. Now,
therefore, let all law-loving people,
whether they arc temperance men or
not, (in the sense of prohibition) come
out to the meeting tonight and let us
enter upen this work with a purpose anil
The Trial, Collins vs. The City of
In the District Court to-day, the case
of Mrs. Collins against the City of
Plattsmouth for damages received by
falling in an unprotected cellar, is on
trial, and occupying the attention of the
court. It will be remembered that at
the time of the building of the Drew
Weckbach block, that one dark and
rainy night as Mrs. Collins was passing
down by the excavation for the cellar
for the building, that she fell in the pit
sustaining a broken limb and other in
juries from the fall. Shortly after the
occurrence action for damages was
commenced, alleging criminal negli
gence on the part of the city, in not
having the excavation sufficiently pro
tected and guarded. The case is one
of much interest, to not only the city
but citizens generally, as it involves
many interesting points of law, and
will show to what extent the city is
responsible for poorly protected exca
vation, and indirectly the parties do
ing the work. The case is prosecuted
by Beeson and Strode, with J. L. Web
ster and M. A. nartigan for the de
The Wilberforce Concert.
Cn account of the inclemency ot the
weather, a small audience greeted the
Wilberforce concert company last even
ing. The entertainment was one worthy
a full house. The programme embraced
a' collection of music of a high order,
which was artistically rendered. The
solo "Rocked in the Cradle of the
Deep," by Mr. Coleman, was one of the
best numbers on the programme, as was
also the duett by Mr. and Mrs. Stewart
Miss Brown as an elocutionist, is the
peer of any on the American stage, and
the selections rendered last evening
fully displayed her powers, and per
ception of elocution as an art. The
troupe is an excellent one throughout,
and should they again visit Platts
mouth, we bespeak for them the pa
tronage their entertainment merits.
The Journal lias Kept Aloof.
The Journal man says he has kept
aloof from tbe temperance question, and
that he has not been consulted on either
side. He is positive that he has not in
stigated the prosecution of applicants
for license. The mere assertion that he
did so, causes the editor to heave fre
quent sighs, worth from three to five
dollars each, and he rushes his favor
through a three stick article with a bhj
maroon taste under his tongue, which
winds up with the statement that if he
is boycotted somebody will be mis
Sherman should rest easy, nobody who
has any gumption will ; so far forget
themselves as to accuse him of being
squarely on any subject where there is
any danger of being boycotted.
Another Move Westward.
Mr. John Q. Adams, who has long
been a resident of this county, and
who has built himself up a very pleas
ant home in Cass county, leaves next
week, with some four to five hundred
head of cattle, to open a stock range
on a tributary of the Republican river
in Dundy county. Mr. Adams keeps
his Cass county place, of course, and
will leave his family here, at least for
the present. Mr. Adams, speaks from
experience, when he says, that Cass
county, and eastern Nebraska, is the
garden of the west, and that no one
need look for a more delightful climate
in which to make for himself a home.

Three Groves Letter.
Three Groves, April 30, 1883.
The small grain need rain.
A good many experiments haye been
made on seed corn about getting it to
grow this spring. Corn that stood out
in the field is thought to be good, and
will probably all come. That which
has been cribbed up all winter, gath
ered in the fall, is found not to be good

Considerable complaint has been
made quite recently to the Reporter
about spurring up somebody in regard
to our mail matter, our county news
papers not reaching our postoffice un
til nearly a week old. The papers
printed at Plattsmouth were not re
ceived here at all last week from some
cause. The Omaha Bee failed to come,
too. Our newspapers should come
down in Friday's mail. If they don't
come then, they have to lay over uuti
Monday ; and then who wants to read
a naoer after it is a week old or so
We think the Herald and Journa,
are printed on Thursday, and the Bee
on Wednesday. Somebody is to blame
for if they are put in the mail they
will surely come promptly and with
out delay direst to our office. Now,
Mr. Herald, you will probably think
that it may not be your business to
look after the other papers, but you
can look after your own and see where
the trouble is and save your corres
pondent of writing this item in every
letter we send to the Herald.

The Journal shows its teeth because
we complimented it on its patent out
6ide. Thi3 is right, but when we see
enterprise we cannot help commending
it. Had we said anything untruthful,
it would be different. We publish tho
latest dispatches, and lots of them,
from all parts of the world, and when
our afternoon dispatches come along
as they will very shortly, our readers
6hall have the cream of the news with
out having to wade through an ocean
of dead, stale matter, and then none of
the Journal readers will have any ex'
cuse to read the Omaha Herald, which
we think is a pretty good newspaper
all the same.
The "Black Hills," a good sized stern
wheel s'.eamer, laden with government
supplies, passed up the river this after
noon about two o'clock. It was heavily
loaded and doubtless some of the freight
will have to be discharged, before Bis -
mark, the destination, is reached. Sev
eral old timers gathered on the river
bank to watch her, and talked over the
bygone days whan regular trips were
made, and this was one of the important
stopping points, and corn was $2 a bush
The new chief of police is proving
himself just as all expected, the right
man in the right place. A clearing
out of a number of offenders and a
general avoidance of the city by thugs
and thieves is already noticeable, and
the police force has some system in its
work. The night men now under in
structions from the chief, have regu
lar beats, and the city is safely guard
ed night and day.
