Yesterday afternoon w were passing a
place of worship and we overheard a
pretty young lady trying to teach some
boys and girls to sing something that
sounded like: "Ring, ring, ring, merry,
merry, bells, O, ring tweet Easter bells,
we'll sing the loud hosannt, and wave
proudly our banner, whilo the bells of
Easter merry, merry ring, whilo tho bells
of Easter ring."
The boys did'nt appear to be singing
as well as tho teacher wished and she was
showing fulsome flattery (to encourage
them to do better, but like everything
else it became tedious and wearisome.
The lady wound up her eulogy of the
boys' abilities by saying "Now, boys, I
know you can do better if yoo only try.
. I am sure you can beat the girls, although

The republican nominee for Mayor, is the
people's choice. More effectual work
was done for the general good of the city
during his short term of one year than
has ever been accomplished before or
since in twice that length of time. The
people like Mr. Richey't progressive
spirit and are siacere in their desire for
hi election to that important office. The
enemy, however, is up and doing, so that
it beheovs the friends of Mr. Rickey that
they should not rest en their ores, as Sam
Barker would say; but he is actively en
gaged in pushing the fight.
L. C. STILES.
Democracy as is its custom, is endeav
oring to defeat L. C. Stiles for police
judge by a false shewing and a misrepre
sentation of facts.
The unfortunate trouble with the Pin
kerton men, wherin seven ef them were
arrested and brought before Juftice Stiles
charged with assault and battery; the
hearing of which at the request of the at
torneys both for the Piukerton's and the
strikers was continued until after the
election in which the justice had nothing
to do but to grant the unanimous request
of the attorneys, is to be used against
him when he could not do otherwise than
grant the request.
Decency aud fair play demands that
Justico Stiles should not be censured for
failing to act both as attorney and court.
The Herald has nothing to say in re
gard to the matter until the court has
passed upon it We predict however,
that carges with more sense in reson in
them will have to be brought against
Mr. Stilus before he can be defeated for
the office of police judge, which he is
well qualified to filll.
I.IMWOOD K. 8KINNEK.
Mr. Skinner, the republican nominee
for city clerk, will receive more than his
party vote for that office. He is an ex
emplary young man, well qualified ia
every particular for the position to which
he aspires. A long residence here coupled
with an accomodating disposition, makes
Mr. Skinner a strong candidate.
Friend Kelly Fox, will find his legs are
a littlo to short to make much of a race
with Lim Skinner.
For city treasurer, is an honest, care
ful man; he is one of the best city treas
urers Plattsmouth has eyer had; to defeat
him would not only be unfair treatment
after one term of successful service, but
it might prove a bad thing for the tax
payers to do.
The republican nominee for city council
in the Second ward will doubtless receive
the support of the party aud will be

DR. A. SALISBUUT
Has many unanswerable claims upon the
citizens of the First ward for their sup
port as member of the city council from
the First ward. His progressive enter
prising spirit coupled with good execu
tive ability will be an improvement on
souis of the old fossils heretofore foisted
on a long suffering public.
E. S CREUSEL.
Mr. Ed. Greusel is looked upon as
being the financier ef the city council,
hU abilities in that direction being un
questioned. The Herald has not always
agreed with Mr. Greusel en city improve
ments yet we must say that Mr. Greustl
has bsen a Tery active and industrious
member of the council and at times when
his vote was ittked for by Mr. Windham
in favor of giving lower Main street to
the railroad company Mr. Greusel was
one of the city's most earnest defenders
and was very instrumental in defeating
that obnoxious ordinance. The city needs
Mr. Greusel's presence in her council
chamber and The Herald hopes the tax
payers of the Fourth ward will see to it
that he is returned.
A Unique Composition.
The following unique composition was
published in a Philadelphia paper
over a hundred years ago. It may be
read three different ways. First, let the
whole be read in the order in which it is
writtca; second, read the line downwards
on the left of each comma in every line;
third, in like manner on the right of ev
ery comma. In the first reading the
Revolutionary cause it condemned, and,
by the ethers, encouraged and lauded :

Pinkerton and Plattsmouth.
It teems ttrange, but it ia nevertheless,
true, that Sunday cannot pass without an
item whether it is about a corpse or a
While standing on the corner of Third
and Main about 3:30 yesterday afternoon
our thoughts were concentrated on the
gymnastic actions ef a crow that was
trying to balance himself on one foot
while. perched on a telephone wire
Our pious thoughts were interrupted
by rushing footsteps and looking aronnd
we observed about six men, on a jog
trot, coming froai Vine street, down
third in the direction of Main.
The first man was J. F. Sullivan, whoso
head, neck, and coat was a mass of blood.
As he arrived at Main street five Pinker
ton men reached the southeast corner of
Third and Vine.
We immediately interviewed tho Pin
kerton incu, but they all seemed mad and
would not answer any questions in any
shape or form. The sergeant, after some
hesitation, said the men threw rocks at
J. F. Sullivan, after washing the blood
from his head, went to the residence of
Sheriff Eikenbary aud from there to the
office of Judge Sulliyan aud filed an in
formation. Judge L. C. Stiles w as culled
and a warrant issued for the arrest of
"eight men dressed in blue uniform."
The sheriff then went to the depot, read
the wan an t and made the arrest aided
by Marshal Malick.
The depot was crowded with men and
women and a large crowd, which was
very quiet and orderly, followed the
prisoners to the office of the waterworks
company where Judge Stiles was presid
ing. Judge Suliivan for the prosecution.
Byron Clark for the defense. After lots
of hard swearing "to speak the truth, anil
nothing but tho truth," it was decided
to try the case nuxt Wednesday morning.
The injured man swears on oath that
he was standing with some other men at
the foot of Vine street overlooking the
railroad; that he, with others, shouted to
the mc switching, "scab;" that, thereup
on, eight or ten Pinkerton men ran up to
them, one struck him on the back with
his club, remarking "get out of here you
sons of "; that three of them
pulled their revolvers, and that Sergeant
Dannchay placed his revolver right under
the man's nose and politely remarked, in
Pinkerton classics, "git you son of a
or I'll put a bullet through you " Sulli
van replied, "shoot, you stinker, you
have'nt got sand enough to do it." At
that moment one of them struck him a
blow with a revolver that cut a gash ia
his skull about an inch long.
Mr. Latham went on the bonds of three
of the men, and Dr. Livingston, Sr., on
the other five. They were released on
$ 100 bail apiece.
It is a remarkable peculiarity in the
history of this country that we never re
member hearing of a Pinkerton man be
ing punished for killing er injuring any
body. They say, now, they will be ac

doing so he kissed his wife and the baby.
It was a dark night, and the rain beat

He struck a "blind washout." The
train was a total wreck. The fireman
