OUR Reporter is very much displeas
ed over the manner ' In which Judge
Savage's speech was cut in two in the
make up of Saturdays Editorial page.
The Herald having gone into politics,
business was too trivial a matter to at
tend to that day. The Herald desires
to appolgizc to the-. Judge for tretting
the last and the lebt part of his speech
first and in the mean time apprentice's
about the office have been requested to
relegate our political affairs to the peo
ple of the County; Whom the Herald
believes to be fully capable of manag
log the same.
The Voters of Cass Couuty will read
the. Communication of ''Republican
Voter in todays issue and understand
the mamier in which Cass aud Otoe
Counties have been sold and delivered
to Lancaster County in our judicial
affairs. Mr. J. B. Strode who repres
ented Cass County- at the committee
meeting indignantly protesed against
the bargain and sale; but was powerless
to obtain a fair apportionment. The
Herald hopes to see Cass County send
up the number of delegates nhe is cn
itled to, to the nominating Convention
and these demand full equal nd fair
repesentation, this is the right and
proper thing to de.

Republicans .of Cass county have
a duty to perform at their County Con
vention on Thursday next which should
be discharged calmly, considerately and
wisely. The hopes of the Cass county
democracy are pinned to the belief that
local jealousies, and personal f.uds,
among republicans, will result in dis
tasteful nominations to one side or the
Other, of the party, and a refusal
among the disappointed candidates and
their friends to cordially acquiese in,
and heartily support, - the ticket. Al
ready the enemy are boasting that the
seeds pf discord are sown from which
they hope to reap this kind of harvest
at the ensuing election. . The Herald

One other, suggestion .Tub Herald
here desires to ' make to the delegates

Cass county, oa ' Thursday next, and
that is. that the very first 7 requisite of
the gentlemen whom thev : shall name
as their choice to fill the several conn
ty offices for the ensuing, term, will be,
that they shall be competent, efficient
men; pot good politicians of -great in
fluence and idaHiJv (MjM&

lals with whom our-County affairs can

this in the temper of the Cass, county
yeomanry, and The Hekald trusts it
is not trespassing upon the bounds of
propriety us a public journal in' inak
ing these suggestions to the delegates
who will compose the rppublicau con
vention on Thursday nest.
Experience has taught the .xepubi it-
can party of Cass couuty, as well as ot
very many other counties in Nebraska,
that the party -yoke -sits lightly upon
the shoulders of the citizen, when de
ciding upon the fitness, and competen
cy, of candidates for the management
of county affaire, e-pecially where the
reputation or standing of the ludivid
ual is brought iu question. So grea
has been the jealousy of tha people up
on this point that upon several occas-
ions,. we have seen excellent . men de
feated in this county becauso they
were not well enough known by the
people of the county, or on account of
damaging campaign stories which could
not be met, and refuted in - time to
place the . individual right before the
public. Recognising these facts and
believing that tho -safety of the party
requires and demands the nomination
of our best men. The Herald hopes to
see good nominations made upon
Thursday next at. Weeping Water.
SOME LIGHT ON THE 2D JUDIC
IAL DISTRICT MATTER.
Editor of the Herald: Tn your
paper of last Saturday I notice an ed
itorial referring to the apportionment
of delegates made by the central com
mittee of this judicial district at the
meeting last week. It may be well to
know why, and upon what basis, the
affairs of the district are relegated to
one county." Tho Chairman in his
cajl does not tell what the basis of ap
portionment b, but the State Journal
said it was based upon the votes cast
for Mr. Strode for district Attorney at
the last election, allowing quo delegate
for every 1H0 votes or major fraction
The omcial vote tor Mr. strode
in this district was as follows; Cass,
1,774; Lancaster, 3,746; Otoe, 1,425. If
the apportionment was based upon this
vote, Cass is entitled to 13, Lancaster
25 and Owe 9 "delegates. But the
chairman in his call say6 it was ordered
that Otoe have 12 derogates, Lancaster
25 and Cass 12. It seems the commit
tee in the magaaminiiy of their hearts
have given to Otoe three delegates
more than she is entitled to. Can these
gentlemen explain why Otoa couuty is
thus complimented? Was there any
bargain and sale in this business?
Aud we should like to know further
why the vote for Mr. Strode was made
the basis of apportionment in Lancas
ter and Cass counties. Is it not be
cause it gave to Lancaster county an
advantage? Let us see. In Lancas
ter county the Anti-Monopolists prin
ted Mr. StrodcB name on their ticket
and the result was that Mr. StrA ran
morn thi soo-rtes ahead of the aver
age republican vote. This being true,
the apportionment of delegates should
have been based upon some other vote,
because it does not represent fairly the
republican voters of this district.
For the state convention the appor
tionment io based upon the votes cast
for Mr Roggen for Secretary of State,
and one delegate at large from each
county, which gives Cass 13, Lancaster
24 and Otoe 11 delegates. Why is this
not a lair apportionment for the judic
ial convention? If there is any reason
why it is not. it is found in the fact
that Mr. Roggen ran 230 votes ahead of
the average republican state ticket in
Lancaster and 134 ahead in Otoe and
only 15 ahead in Cass.
Referring to the official vote, I have
taken the number of votes, cast for
Dawes, Agee, Powers, Roggen, Kendall.
Wallachs, Clark, Jones and Wvaver
being all the State officers except re
gent of the university and includes
Congressman and . find that the aver
age vote cast for these officers in the
three counties, was 3,217, in Lancaster;
1,735 in Cass; and 1,323 in Oloe. -Al
lowing one dclegatejbr every 150 votes
or major portion thereof, and one dele
gate at large, from each county, would
give to Cass 13, Lancaster 22, and Otoe
10 delegates. . -
Therefore, it is plain to be seen that
thef apportionment of delegates made
by the judicial committee, does not rep
resent the republican votes of the dis
trict fairly, and is especially arbitrary,
unfair and unjust to Cass county.
The apportionment agreed upon by
the committee, " e are informed, was
carried tnrough by the three committee
men from Lancaster and Mr.Murfin, of
Otoe, who had a proxy and voted two
vo.es, Mr. v Watson, of Otoe, , and Mr.
Strode of Cass approving it.
" We are reliably informed that Mr
Murfln, of Otoe, worked at tho polls
last falf against Mr. Strode, and no r
votes with Lancaster committeemen to
haye the apportionment upou the vote
cast forthat office iu. Lancaster. county.
where by the aid of the anti-monop
vote he ran more than 500 ahead of the
average repuhUoua ' Ucfcet ou the coo-
di'inn that Lancaster committeemen
will vote to .aite Otoe county two or
three tit-locates ait a matter of cotirtesv. 1
D - V r
so that she uay have as many delegates
as Cass. After having worked against
Mr. Strode to reduce his vote in Otoe
county, Lancaster votes him reward
for his treachery.
This apportionment ia s itufair to
Cass county that tho republican conven
tion which meets at Weeping Water
next Thursday ought to denounce It
and elect 13 or 11 delegates to the Judi
cial convention and demand ndc6h
tend for their admission and their
right to fairly represent Cass county.'
