Rotholz hired a rig from one of the liv

The Beatrice base ball team is appar
cntly unsatisfied in accepting a defeat of
two games from the club of this city.and
we learn that they have again challenged
the boys to play a game at Wahoo. We
arc surprised if the club here accepts a
challenge from such an outfit of chronic
kickers, but we feel confident that no
game will result. If the club is foolish
enough to play them at that point, we
feel certain that no justice will be shown
them and they will return home feeling
much the worse for the trip. Since the
Beatrice team lias failed so far to defeat
them in a ball game, they will, no doubt,
attempt to waylay them, as it were, and
carry away the honors. We trust the
boys will not bite.
On last Saturday Dr. A. T. Withers
moved out of his office and on Monday
left for Lis new place in Plattsmouth,
Neb. Six years ago, when Oakland
was just beginning to be a town and
was rapidly assuming large proportions,
the Dr. cast hi lot among us. During
these sir years he ha established the
reputation of a good business man, an
honorable citizen and a skillful dentist.
His practice in the county has been ex
tensive and his work has invariably
given satisfaction. He has thoroughly
learned his profession, and in Lis new
field, where he will haye a better chance
to work himself up, he will doubtless
stand in the front ranks of dentistry.
We heartily commend hin) both as a den
tist and a citi7.cn to the citizens of Platts
mouth. He is worthy of their jconfi- j
diiifp. Oakland fndrpendeut,

Come Editor Sherman's
"The absence of John A. McShane from
the great democratic rally was a great
disappointment to thousands of people.
woo uesircci to near ironi and sec tlieir
representative. Whose fault it was i
not yet known, but it was a grevious
blunder and no mistake. The committee
on invitations were instructed to com
municate with him, and it was given out
that they had done so, and that they had
Ins promise to be here. Jsow that he did
not conic, some explanation is in order."
The above is from Col. Sherman's
Journal, of Saturday evening. I don't
understand who the Col. is liitling at, or
what point ho wants to make by it. Was
he not " greased enough i " The writer
remembers distinctly Col. Sherman being
present, J. A. Connor making the state
ment before the executive committee, in
the parlors of t lie Kiddle house, that he
had sei-n the Hon. John A. McSh-ine in
his ollice in Omaha and talked with him
over thirty minutes , trying to get him to
consent to come to Plattsmouth. I lis ex
cuse was, he expected any moment to le
called back to Washington, lie likewise
showed J. A. Connor some twenty-live or
thirty Utters from different parts of Ne
braska, urging him to come there nnd
address them, lie said: " Connor, don't
you see the point, if I go to Plattsmouth
I have to go to those other places also ?
I don't want to offend any place." His
point was well taken.
In conclusion, as a democrat, I fail to
see where the Journal used any extra
printor's ink advertising the rally, on the
contr iry, he paid more attention to the
base bill g:wne; while the ultra republi
can IIkiiai.d gave us a good send-off.
In conclusion, I would say that had it
not been for John A. McShane's reception
the night previous, we would have had
more people here than the town could
hold. As it was there were over seven
hundred at the 15. fc M. depot at Omaha.
but the train being two hours late, and
tiie delegation having been up late the
night previous, they abandoned the trip
and went home
The writer has seen letters from the
different democratic clubs, both in Oma
ha and South Omaha, in the possession
of J. A. Connor, who said positively they
would attend. As it was we had one of
the biggest rallies Cass county ever wit
ncsscd. Oyer fifteen hundred torches
were in line, besides twenty thousand
visitors. I would say the executive coin
nitteo done well and left no stone un
turned to make it a success.

certain extent, for a grand rally to be

Judging by the different names in the

without a doubt, be tended by unliinit

Willie Gorder, son of Mr. Fred Gor
der, hr took sick last Tuesday night,
died last night at 9 o'clock. He had
been afilicted about two weekj previous
with pneumonia, but left his home too
soon u::d caught cold, causing a relapse.
He was fourteen vc;;rs of age, and was
in every sense, a well developed young
mau. lie w3 a favo.ite in the city with
nil who knew him and his loss will be
widely mourned. The family is
sorely afilicted, and the Herald extends
to them the sympathies of the entire com
munity in their pad bereavement. The
funeral service will be held tomoirow
afternoon at two o'clock, at the Qerman
Presbyterian church. ,
The Primaries. .
A very sjiirited contest was waged in
this city between the friends of M. D.
Polk on the one hand and W. II. Newell
on the other, both being candidates for
the state senate.
The Polk delegations were elected in
the First and Second wards, while the
Newell delegation in the Fourth ward,
which contained three jiaincs on the Polk
ticket, were elected by tiireo majority.
The Newell delegation had nineteen ma
jority in his home ward, thcThird, though
it is claimed that Polk has some friends
on the delegation. A good derd of
feeling has been manifested on both hides,
which The 1Ikic.i.i very much deplores.
The enemy is the democratic party, and
if care is not taken factional (piarrcls will
pave the way for democratic success; we
hope the boys will keep cool and save
their ammunition until the Oth of No
vember, and then make no mistakes, but
support the republican nominee as zeal
ously as they now favor tlieir special
Victory is in the air and The Herald
hopes there will be nothing said or done
that would endanger the success of our

There will be a meeting of the
young ladies republican club, at the of
fice of Judge Russell, tomorrow evening
at 8 o'clock. A meeting was held last
Saturday night, b-.st as there was consid
erable dissatisfaction and a misunder
standing as to what time the meet'ng
would be held, only about fifty young
ladies were present. Let there be a full
turnout tomorrow night nnd swell the
number. The assistance which the young
ladies can offer will contribute largely to
the succss of the coming rally on the
13th. Their presence in the work will
enthuse the young men and attract them
to a sense of their duty. Thid w still
leap year (but some of the young ladies
are apparently forgetting) and the young
ladies should take the lead. Let all who
have never before taken an interest in
politics, come out ia tljisway. We have
not yet learned difiuitely what style of
costume has been decided on by them,
but it is reported that the dresses will be
made of blue material with white trim

Nebraska City News, Aug. 14: Prof.

continues to do .a land otliee business. It
affords the JVttrs pleasure to speak a
good word for the professor, tor during
his stay in this city he has shown himself

with all and chLUiiiiiir very moderate

and we know of several per-ons who
went to him with the idea that they need

refused to fit them for the reason that
they did not need them. He has only to
