OUR COUNTY TICKET.
The Republican Convention, held at
Weeping Water, yesterday, was a har-
nioaioua gathering throughout ; tl
delegates were representative men
from all portions of the couuty, and
every precinct was fully represented.
The strife over many ot the offices
was spirited, yet friendly, and the ut
most good feling prevailed.
John IV. Jennings, our accomplished
Couuty Clerk, had no opposition, and
was declared the nominee of the party
for the ensuing term by acclamation.
Mr. Jenniugs has been a resident of
Cass county since the close of the late
war, and is well known throughout
the &tte. He was h soldier in the fa
inous second Iowa cavalry, during the
war, and no man in tnat celebrated
command was held in higher esteem
for bravery, daring, and true soldierly
qualities, than John Jennings. For
years Mr. Jenmbga has been an attache
of the county clerk's office, in this coun
ty, first as Deputy under Countj Clerks
Moore and Tuttv and for the past two
years as County Clerk, himself. He i
considered one ot the most capable,
competent officials in the State, and the
administration of his office has been
all that could he asked of any man.
William II: Jewell, our nominee for
Couuty Treasurer, has held that office
duriug the preaent term; haying eight
years ago served our people as Couuty
Judge iu a faithful and efficient man-
uer. Mr. Newell has been a resident
of Cass County for fourteen years,
having tfrst ! settled upon and im
proved a good farm iu the neighbor
hood of Messrs.' Pollard and Sheldon.
where he resided when he was elected
County Judge; he too was a soldier
during the war, serving the full term
of enlistment, in the 91st Ohio Infant
ry, which regiment participated in all
tue Virginia campaigns. Judge New
ell was one of thw gallant I'hil. Siieri
dan's boys in "the valley of theShenan
doab, aud has a record of which he
may well be proud.
Mr. Newell has - made the county of
Ca3 a model treasurer. The affairs of
his office are ' iu 'perfect order; his re
cent settlement' show the books, rec
ords, andyaecoarsts of that" office dur
iug hid term lor be' kept with scrupu
lous care and neatness, and our efficient
Bocrd of Couiumfcioucrs state tbt not
a iiugler error';".: however slight, was
found in hid recent settlement with ilia
county. In LiV intercourse with the
public our people have found Mr. New
ell a prompt, oblit(iug and gentlemauly
official, and in every respect the Her
ald, belie ves this nomination to be a fit
and ''proper one, especially in view of
the fact that the uniform custom of
the people of this couuty has been to
give the occupant' or this ornce two
J. C. Eikenbary, .- our next sheriff,
has been the deputy of sheriff Hyera
during his past term, and has made
himself thoroughly familiar with the
duties of that office; he has resided in
Cass county since his young boyhood
days and everybody knows him to be a
manly, straightforward, energetic man,
made of that staff which the Herald
guarantees will make a model sheriff.
Calvin Russell, our nominee for coun
ty judge, came to Plattsmouth from
Wisconsin during the year 1867, hero
he resided tor some years previous ' to
his temoval to the town of Weeping
Water. ' Mr. Russell is well known and
universally respected by the people of
Cass county ; he has been a prominent
man in 1 our county affair?, although
never before a candidate for a county
office." Mrr Russell is a gentleman of
more than ordinary intelligence and
will bring Lo the office of county judge,
many of those natural qualifications
which eminently fit him for that posi
tion. Cyrus Alton, our nominee for countj'
superintendent, is a resident of Stove
Creek, where he has resided during the
past ten years. Two years ago Mr. Al
ton was elected superintendent of the
common schools of , the county which
office he has faithfully end honestly ad
ministered, giving it hia full time and
attention, bis qualification axe first-
class as an educator, and the scnoola of
the county have flourished under : his
care and supervision. "The almost unan
imous manner In which he was nomi
Bated by the convention yesterday,
the high esteem in which be is held by
tbd people of this county. .'.-';'.?--
candidate for Dlstnct clerk, is a young
man, with whom our pep!o are well
acquainted, he has grown to manhood
in Caes county, issc3SC3 a, good edu
cation and is a finished accountant.
Mr. Hall Is a aon of the Hon. James
! Hall, of Eight Mil? Grove, and a broth
er of Dr. Joieph H. Hall, of lliis city,
and our people will recognize in this
young man, a person fully litted and
qualified to fill the responsible position
of clt rk of the district court of Cass
county with credit to himself and pro
tit to the county.
For Coroner and County Surveyor
Me6srs. Gasa and Fairfield were re nom
inated by acclamation these gentlemen
have served the people of this county
so long and faithfully in these positions
that the Herald deems extended men
For County Commissioners John
Clemrnou9 of Stove Creek was named
Mr. Cleinmons has beeu one of Cass
Counties Homesteaders; ho came
to the couuty and settled in which
the neighborhood h now resides,
years ago, hen Stoye Creek was "way
out west;" he has endured tho priva
tions of the homesteaders life, aud has
witnessed Ca3 county settle up and
develop into the third county in the
state in point of population and wealth
Mr. Cleuimons is thoroughly identified
with Cass county's interests aud under
stands her needs ;is a sober, prudent,
careful business mankind will make Cass
county a good county commissioner.
This ticket is, in the opinion of the
Herald unobjectionable in every re
spect; the gentlemen above named are
all good, tirst-class men, chosen on ac
count of their qualifications and fitness
for the different oflices for which they
were nam cl. Mid tin re can be no good
reason whv it should not receive the
full party support. We jjiniict the
tiiumphaut success of every gentleman
named by yesterday's convention.
Tue manly utterances of Dr. Iiutlerf
in accepting the chairmanship of the
republican central committee, before
the convention, thculd convince our re
publicans of Plattsmouth who have
been in the habit of yielding to local
prejudices and whims that there is
nothing more unjust than to allow
themselves to be influenced against an
individual upon the grounds that he
resides in a different and competing
neighborhood. Dr. Butler has always
been a stalwart republican from princi
ple aud now proposes to set some of
our Plattsmouth republicans a manly
example in politics. The Herald
predicts that Dr. Butler will yet be re
membered by his party in Cass county
in a very substantial manner;
his position as chairman of the central
committee, is a responsible and labori
ous one, and one which he will fill with
credit to himself and advantage to the
Tiik Honerable James Crawford of
South Bend whose term of office as Co
unty Commissioner expires this year
has made Cass County a good cominis
sioui-r. Mr. Crawforrd is thoroughly
conversant with our county affairs and
by hiquiet gentlemanly conduct while
attending to the business of the county
has won the universal respect of our
people; he has shown himself to be a
careful prudent yet fair minded, man
always willing and ready to hear the
claims and grievances of his fellow cit
izens patiently and weigh them fairly
and he has Droved himself resolute
enough to act independently aud to do
what he considered exact justice be
tween the county and her citizens. -It
will be a long time we predict be
fore a better man tor the position than
James Crawford, is found on the board
of Cass Couuty Commissioners.
For a model of terseness, point, aud
good common sense, we recommend
the platform adopted by the republi 1
cans of Massaachusetts on day before
yesterday. There is no equivocation,
shuffling, nor garrulity about this dec
laration of principles; everybody can-
read it, and understand it, and ought to
endorse it; hurrah for the common sense
republicans of Massachusetts; Senator
Dawes should haye been sent for and
paid a good salary by the Iowa repub
licans at the time they framed their
long text, which is furnishing so much
material for the common enemy to
forage upon, "Brevity is the soul of

hold upon the republicans of Cans Co
unty was so great, that a fitrong move

RcuU n W. Hyera has j r -'. e 1 himself
one of the most efficient Sheriffs in the
State of Nebraska and will leave his pro-
sent office universally respected and be- .
loved by the people of Cass Couuty
irrespective of party.
Pit. Butler, Mr. Nc well's oppouent
for County Treasurer, need not be
ashamed of the showing he made in
esterday's convention. The Doctor
made a gallant fight, and a gentlemanly
fight; he was opposed by a strong man,
who had the advautage of position,
with a line record abo'it him and the
precedent for two terms behind him,
which were great odds in his favor,
under such circumstances it is no dis
credit to be defeated in yesterday's
eonveution by Wm. II. Newell.
