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. ,

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

About one hundred and fifty lights
were carried in the procession, which

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

suitable address of welcome, which ap

have space to publish.

encored, singing for an encore "The

The next toast on the programme was

Hon. J. C. Watson, of Nebraska City,

on the "Presidential Nominees of 1SS8."
The next toast was "Protection to

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-

taken Cleveland, Thurman and the ban

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
"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-
man might have more time.
On a whole, the event reflects great
credit to the city of Plattsmouth and the
republican club.

But the chief occupation of democrats,
now that the "war is actually oyer," is to

They are particularly sensitive upon their
