Cood Speeches The republican banquet which was passenger to morning for A WARNING TO LAW-BREAKERS. An Act to Punish the Clving Pro vocation for Assault." Ry request of many respectful, quiet, peacable, and law-abiding citizens we publish an act from the statute of Ne braska, presuming that there are many, and perhaps most of the people who are unfamiliar with the law in this particular We quote from chapter IV, section 17, of the crimial code, which reads as follows: Provoking Assault That any person who shall intentionally provoke, or at tempt to provoke an assault upon him self or another hv tUa ntr;n,. ,. c j -""'"o gross ly yile and insulting epithets applied to the assaulting party, or one so tempted to commit an assault, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and shall upon conviction thereof, be fined in any sum not exceeding ten (10) dollars, or be imprisoned in the - ' J j uui. tAtulu- ing ten days." V The same law or a similar one also ap plies to .'profanity, loud and boisterous vulgarity, c C.ig and swearing upon the streets or in public is a statutory crime, punishable by fine or imprison mnent, or both, at the discretion of the court. The Herald is informed that if there is not a change for the better in re gard to profanity and rowdyism upon our streets Jthere will be speedy action taken and telling examples made to the shame and disgrace of disrespectful law breakers. , A Warning.

Peter Mekges. given at the Waterman opera house last night, fully reached and surpassed the anticipations of many as an enthusiastic and socal event. Many of the promt neut speaker.? whose names were on the programme forwarded their regrets yes terday, stating their inability to be pres ent. Letters of I egret from Gen. Hen Harrison and other lenders of the re-pub lican party were read by Hon. R. Ii. Windham, and each, though their writers were hundreds of miles distant, lent en thusiasm to the assemblage and brought forth applause when strong Jphrases of encouragement were heard, each bearing a word exhibiting the assurance that the republican party would be successful in the coming campaigh, and eacJi giving a word of encouragement to the Young Men's Republican club of Pluttsmouth Several enthusiastic republicans from a distance put in an appearance and made their presence known in rendering valu able assistance in various ways. Although seyeral of the speakers who had been counted on most were absent, yet the others who were present did jus tice to their subject.?. As the space of the paper would not allow the publication of each speech, and a? only a couple of them had been convei ted into manuscript, we regret very much our inability to publish them, The club of Nebraska City composed of about thirty members, accompaned by a band from that city arrived in time to fall in line with the procession which was men iorming in tiont of the opera house. About one hundred and fifty lights were carried in the procession, which present-id, a their bearers marched along and turned, a very fine scene. The Ii. fc M. band rendered .i number Of pieces on the Street in their ncii-.l well-cultured style, after which they located themselves on the stage and dur ing the time the audience was satisfying by the bountiful repast, entertained them admirably. The decorations as arrranged rellect credit on the following gentlemen on decorations: Messrs. Sig. Green, L. E. Skinner, M. D. Polk, D. B, Smith, Dr. E. W. Cook, J. A. Davies and R. L. Keister. The arrangement and display of good taste in blending the streamers which reached across the auditory of the opera house, could not be surpassed. A large flag, the nation's emblem, reached across the stage .bearing a placard "Our Ban danas." The portraits of several of the prominent presidents adorned the walls. The Plattsmouth Glee Club was called upon and responded by singing "The Horse-shoe which brought forth good applause, after which Mr. John A. Davies, president of the Young Men's Republi can club, delivered au eloquent and suitable address of welcome, which ap pears m another column Hon R. Ii. Windham then read the let ters of regret; only a few of which we have space to publish. The next toast beiug "The Republican x uat nun i-rcsent, was re sponded to by Judge S. B. Pound, of Lincoln, in an able speech. The Glee Club was then called upon tor the "Irish Emigrant," which thev rendered in a praiseworthy style, being encored, singing for an encore "The Buccaneer's Bride." The next toast on the programme was Nebraska to the Front." and sponded to by Mayor W. J. Broatch, of Omaha. Hon. J. B. Strode, of Lincoln answered to the next toast, "A Free Ballot, Honest Count and Equal Representation," in an able speech. "Republican Principles" next appeared on the programme, but as Hon. O. Tefft. of Avoca, could not be present, it was omitted. Hon. J. C. Watson, of Nebraska City, was loudly applauded during his speech on the "Presidential Nominees of 1SS8." The next toast was "Protection to Home Industries," E?rA,."erican II0es and American trade. We'll Draw our Btiarpept Political niade. This toast was responded to by Rev. J, G. Taite, of Shelton. His speech was I tilled with sparkling points and consid erable enthusiasm. The subject which handled seemed very familiar to him, and the manner in which he executed it, showed that he was a man of experience and understood his subject thoroughly Ha gave good illustrations why the ad vocates of free trade should Jnot have possession of the country. He remem bered the time when free Ttrade ruled, stating that Jat that time iron rails were imported for from $100 to $120 per ton and now the price seldom ever exceeds $40. At that time the foreign industries would ship the rails in at a high price mle the market. As the foreign compa- HAtillA, FRIDAY, JULY 13, 1683. niei were wealthy monopolies, home in dustries could not possibly work their way to success, He said that the repub licans had chosen Harrison, Morton, and the Stars and Stripes for their leaders and banner and that the democrats had taken Cleveland, Thurman and the ban dana, "which is English you know," the coyering which the colored woman of the south use in preference t a hat The democrats now want to take the protection off wool. After Mr. Taite had completed his speech, Mr. W. A. Derrick was then called on for a solo, and responded by singing ."Rocked in the Cradle of the Deep." "Peculiarities of Groyer Clsveland, Ills .Men and J lis Administration was the subject selected for Hon. Johu Y Stone, of Council Bluffs. The subject was well handled by that gentleman who was loudly applauded all through his excellent f-peech. Hon. E, Rosewater, of the lice, Omaha "The Republican Press:" Hon. G. M. Lambertson, Lincoln "Tim Fallacies of the Administration"; Col. W. P. Hep bum, Clarinda, la., "The Solid South." The above gentlemen treated their sub jects well, although they were obliged to cut their speeches short, owing to the lateness of the hour preventing them from giving themselves the satisfaction they deserved. As Gov. Thayer, of Lincoln could not be present, Judge S. Chapman mede a short speech taking as his subject, "The G. A. It.," but as his speech came in on the programme before Col. Hepburn's, he cut it short in order that that fentle- n man might have more time. On a whole, the event reflects great credit to the city of Plattsmouth and the republican club. The yoii:j ladies of the Young La dies' Reading Room, '!'ho had charge of the tables and provided the sui.'"1'1".

Pres- identofClub- Hidden among the pines and ham mocks of a southern land is a spring of water around which lingers a beautiful legend. Tiiis spring is still pointed out to the way-faring pilgrim as the identi cal fountain in search of which Ponca de L.eou came noiu the old world to the new, believing it would ir.ipa.t immor tal youth to all who should drink of its waters. Many years afterwards a small body of God-fearing men went in search of an other spring whose waters would impart immortal love of country to all who might drink thereof. Totight we invite our fair and honored mu .4. q..v..jio n' UJLCb with honest toil and Gods sunshine have made this Great -American Desert bloom and blossom like the rose, between that party and its statutes which recognize no aristocracy but the aristocracy of genuine merit and manhood, I repeat it, that democrats may talk about curtains tlivid ing the past from the present but between the republican party and its past, there is no curtain. And I would that no cur tain may ever fall between the American people md the history of a party which is the history of the nations preservation in war and the preservation of the na tions industries in peace. I would that the light of the lamp of experience might mingle with the light of present knowledge insuring to the people "Peace within their walls, Prosperity within their Palaces." u nat is me value ol history it we ar to forget the past. We do not recall to mind the crimes and horrors of a French Revolution because we desire to keep alive the unpleasant memories of that hour.but because we would not forget the historical lessons taught by a nation which once sought to absolve itself from those precedents and traditions which arc inseparably associated with a patriotic love of country, we recall the history of a nation which ence wrote upon its escutcheon "Let u- forget the past." The christain mother teaches her chiid.-er. ;Jje story of Christ's betrayal by Judas and His elenial by Peter, not that she wishes to arouse sectional feeling among the po litical decendauis of Judas and Peter but that she would have her children grow up to manhood and womanhood with the knowledge and belief that loyalty is right and that treason id wrong. What is the value of history? It is that the present may profit by the past. discarding that which is harmful and retaining that whkh is good, this is the value of histoiy, The war of the rebellion is over, but the contest oi 1 ahotit us. And tonight while we meet 'rouim Crri Z'tll' spring -of republicanism, renewing old acquaintances and forming new ones let us turn our faces to the future, let us welcome the p.oLJems of pence, the right solution of which, will drive before us the fallacies of mere theorists as the morning sun dispels the shades of night In the coming contest we ask your aic as we thank you for your assistance in the past and the encouragement of your presence fonight. To the young ladies who haye favored us with this bounteous spread, to the ladies especially whose in llueuce in moulding the nation's character is reilecteel in just and upright laws, to all our guests from abroad or at home the Young Men's Republican club of Plattsmouth comes greeting. ilization. For energy in business for courage in battle, and for wisdom in politics, her sous arc unsurpassed. Now once more hiw tho nation need of energy courage, and lofty political wisdom. Tho party whose triumphs have always proved triumphs oyer all that is best and noblest in Americanism ence more confronts us at the polls. It seeks in its blind folly to tear down those barriers with which the wise leaders of republicanism guarilcd our growing industries against ruinous competition with the pauper labor of Europe. Enriched, with the ipoil of olliee it is marshalled fortl once more under the leadership of men who in lbGl to '. were found at the head of armies endeavoring to establish an Oligarchy with human shivery for its main prop. It was under the leadership of these men that the rights of our fishermen to fair treatment in Canadian waters was sur rendered to Great Biitinn. The emer gency requires energy and determination. Where are these qualities better developed than here in the free and boundless west! To me gentlemen it seems impossible that republicanism should fail in this elecisi ve struggle for the nations good. We must succeed we shall succeed. The skirm ishing lias already begun the battle which is to follow means, if won, en couragement to our manufacturers; pro tection to our laboring and industrial cl asses; happy homes and firesides, if lost, the picture is reversed; and with the surplus products of Europe flooding our markets the existing conditions of the laboring classes in the fold world must inevitubly follow here. I predict success to our cttorts. and when the line of twevy states is formeel Nebraska will be at tne i rout. mi ill v rr " "r"" JOHN A.

Lincoln, and I never mention the name of Abra ham Lincoln but what I feel proud of a party which recognizes in the martyred presielent one of the great moral heroes of the nineteenth century, I say. Lincoln and Grant and Sherman and little Phil Sheridan drank of the principles of this fountain then showereel its blessings upon a bonded race that they too might drink of the waters of freedom. But the chief occupation of democrats, now that the "war is actually oyer," is to indulge in pledges for their future good conduct anel apologies for the past. They are particularly sensitive upon their past history; some men have occasion to be. They invoke the powers of the immor tal gods to ring elown the curtain of his tory; they write upon their banners "Let us Forget the Past." Republicans are no apologists.

The democracy stole into power, though wilful mendacity on the one hand anel the most sacred vows on the other. For twenty-five years they persistently sowed the seeds of calumny, and watered them with the dews of prom ised reform, until some of them took root in the shallow and rocky soil of the sore head mugwump, anel the fate of th na tion was surrendered to that party that and yet I am not prepared to say that) the president is a prctciidir, a deceiver or a hypocrite, but nil these qualities nre, in more or less decre e, in his noikc up iuhI crop out in his olilks.
