The democrats of this city arc not
dead, they are only sleeping.
John A. Davies will address the
citizens of Cedar Creek and surrounding
country on the 4th of July.

Anyone wishing tickets to the Young

There will be no service at the Chris
tian church next Sunday morning or
evening, owing to the absence of the
minister. I lev. M. A. Hampton, has

Sunday school nt the usual hour.
Monday night it couple of colored
people, a man ana woman, attracted a
large number of the citizens by their
singing. The music was very fine, and
more musical voices tlian tlie woman s
voices are seldom if ever heard. Al
though they passed the hat, they dress
well and seem to live hih.
Messrs. Sherdon & Co., who have
the contract for the sewer woik which is
to be done in the city, started their men
to work yesterday. They have com
menced operation at the rear of Carruth's
building, and in a short time, we expect,
the city will have every appearance of
the visit of an earthquake.

Viuiring their services longer. With one
or two exceptions they all acted squarely
and as gentlemen. But when a body
of men are placed in such a position, and
do their duty, all cannot be pleased.
We give them credit tot acting in no
way partial and doing their duty as they
We notice that Mr. Allen Becson is
taking come pride in Sixth street on
which he resides. He has employed a
man to clip the weeds in front of his
residence which grow in such abundance
on that street in particular. If a number
of other residents, not only of that street,
but any street as a person can find them
there, would take an interest in the ap
pearance of, not only their own property,
but the city, they would follow the good
example set by this gentleman. The
trees of the different streets grow to a
sumcient Del gut so that it is not neces
sary to take advantage of weeds for
A party of about ten couples has
made arrangements seyeral times and
has made arrangements to make arrange
ments to see what arrangements could be
made for a picnic. It was concluded,
after severeal postponements to bold it
yesterday at the fair grounds, but it
seems the dumber must be an unlucky
one or such a thing Lt not to be. The
rain yesterday turned their Anticipations
to disappointment, and the crowd at
present i quite blue. Since disappoint
ment has been A companion for so many
terms, why not congregate at the resi
dence of one of the metnbera and' have
a picnic anyway. It would be a picnic
for us to see them have a picnic, and if a
picnic they must Lave, why not haye a
picnic in this way. If we can help them
out by changing the wbeather aign&ls, we
will do so.
Mr. Lee Sharp, a young gentleman
who has for a number of years been era
ployed as a machinist at the B. & JL
shops here, has severed his connection
with that company within the last few
days, with the intention, as we learn, of
starting in business for himself. He has
not yet selected a suitable location for
his shop, but as soon as he does he in
tends to open a machine frhop and pre
pare himself to do all kinds ol work in
that line. As he is a first-class machanic,
a good business man, steady, sober and
industrious, nothing but success can we
bespeak for him. He has worked steady
for a number of years, been economical
enough to have an eye open to future
prospects, and now since it is his determ
ination to launch out in the business
world, he certainly deserves the encour-

hini credit for remaining at home and
trying to build up the city by bringing
into it an additional industry. This gen

as he is willing to work, he certainly
should make his mark and come out with
a share of the yellow metal which so
many are striving to obtain. lie will be

Can anyone account for the strange
change of expression in the faces of the
democrats since their return from Omaha?
It must haye been something like going

Mr. Phil. Harrison, of this city, claims

Prominent "Bob," who invariably
lights on a stationary crowd, and gener
ally lends enthusiasm to a certain extent
by ringing in topics for the principal
speakers, took a drop to himself last
night He" was taking his leave from n
certain hardware store by way of the
back door. We don't suppose he was in
any hurryjto get home, as he seldom ever
is, but for some reason we do not know,
he made a rapid pace for the sidewalk,
and in his hurry missed hisjttep, dropped
between two sidewalks which just alJow

and was obliged to remain there until as
sistance was given him to extricate him
Tickets have been issued by the
Young Men's Republican Club and put
in the hands of a committee for sale,
preparations are being made for the ban
quet which give us every expectation for
one of the grandest events in the history
of Plattsmouth. The date U set for
July tSfth, at the Waterman opera house.
Prominent speakers of tl.c state will be
present and participate in the festiyitics,
among them will be John M. Thurston,
who will have in store for his audience
many glittering points from the late con
vention. No doubt t;e opera house will
be crowded to its utmost capacity and
with the encouragement that republicans
now have since the nomination of Har
rison and Morton, a rousing event will
surely be the result. Let all right-thinking
people come forward shew that they
are on the right side and on the road to
victory, and push forth every effort to
make the coming banquet as we predict,
a grand success.
Jedd Vance, the boy who u.d J:js
skull so badly fractured some time ago,
does not require constant attention now
and is able to take good care of himself
part of the time. He has gained great
courage and worked his jray along ad
mirably until the road to recovery is
broad and easy to travel. Several who
hard dotted down their signatures on a
subscriptiou p&pcr as) a representation of
a donation, are now adverse to fcy;g it.
Some are under the impression that the
boy's step-father, Mr. Dickson, has con
siderable property and pioney in the bank,
but such, we learn from good authority,
is not the case. Even if such a story is
true", they are only helping the poor un
fortunate boy who will be left to himself
in a short time and have no one to look
to for ssppprt. A boy in his condition,
with a hole almost three inches square in
the top of his head with no protection
but a thin portion of flesh to keep the
brain from exposure, will be in an un
comfortable condition to do any kind of
work and isay need considerable assis
tance. A donation of cents or so in
as charitable way can never be begruaged
surely. We are pleased to learn that so
man haye contributed willingly and
cheerfully, ana asy jeinec so many have
exhibited as kind a spirit, d no lp,t any
kickers come into prominence and cast a
sbadaw over tho good which already

Night a Crand Success-
Tho Young Men's Republican Club of
Plattsmouth had called a ratification
meeting of the republican nominees for
president and vice president for last
evening, t be held in Rock wood hall,
and although the weather was most un
propitious and a heavy rain had fallen
after 0 o'clock, the meeting was
A UBAND SUCCESS.
At 8 o'clock the B. & M. band opened
up the ball with their sixteen pieces in
front of Rockwood hall, playing several
popular pieces in their best style, as they
always do. Almost immediately the
heavy boom of artillery resounded
throughout the fcity. The cannon being
controlled and .handled by the eyer effi
cient cannoneers, Harvey Sage and Chas.
Black, forty rounds being fired, and
amidst music and cannonading the audi
ence assembled in Rockwcd J) all.
The hall was well filled with enthiuias.
tic republicans at 8:30 o'clock p. m. and
tho meeting was called to order by John
A. Davies, president of the Young Men's
Republican Club, wLs, jn a short, bril
liant, twenty-minute speech su-pIed the
entire audience. He covered the ground
of Protection for hot.ic industries in a
remarkable manner, and we pedjc right
here that he will, during this campaign,
be heard from not only l Oass, but the
state at large. He closed his remarks
with the heading to this article, Tippe
canoe and Protection too, Harrison and
Morton our next president and vice presi
dent of ike J7mted States. All through
his speech he was met wiifc applause and
the close was enthusiastically applauded.
Hon. R. B. Windham was called on
and responded in his usual vein. His
remarks were woll received and inter
spersed with applause.
As one of the committee on speaker,?
reported to the audience that it was im
possible to get speakers from abroad from
the fact that everybody was ratifying at
home. The apology was unnecessary,
as our home talent in the republican par
ty is of the btsj nud was well received
last night by an entDt2.ti audience.
Judge Samuel M. Chapman 7.'hs the 1
next speaker called upon. His remarks
were directed especially to the solid
south, an houest vote and a fair count.
He called attention to the fact that the
names of Harrison and Morton were two
of the most illustrious names in the
United States; that tjhe name of Morton,
the great war governor of fndjana, and
Gen. Ben. Harrison, the soldier, the cjti
aen and statesman from the same state,
would act as a statesman in the cominjr
campaign and that he predicted that In
diana would be safe for the ticket. Ap
plause greeted the speaker and at the
close of his remarks S. P. -vanatta was
next called and responded in a warm,
hearty manner.his remarks being received
with great favor. Ha touched up the
democrats all along the ljnc, and hl3 re
mark that the republicans and the people
should vote for brains as against averdu-
poise and the result would be that we
would have a president who could take

pLATTSMOUTii,Neb.,June 25. Special
The dpRjoprats are unusually jubilant
this evening over luc nomination of Har
rrison at Chicago, while our republican
friends feel very much disappointed and
sore. Very few express themselves.
While this gives a sure grip on a contin
o'js four years of democratic reign and

to knock about 'Tour figures ofU tho here
