Several Plattsmouth people visited
Omaha last night to attend Desie's

The li. & M. Shops were all closed

A gcod number of the Plattsmouth

We did not notice any "MugL-s

MiiEditok: I notice a remarkable
comment iu the Journal of Dec. 21th
derogatory to the jury which tried the
Oliver case vs the C. li. & Q. II. R. Co.
Mr. Editor I have, I suppose, in common
with my fellow citizens a contempt for
deadbeats and blackguards and as Ion"
as that specimen of the human race keeps
out of the public prints and lets alone re
spectable honest men, I am disposed to
think the less notoriety he gets by notice
from the public the better for the public
morals; yet, that was a very dirty, libel
ous attack, in the Journal comment, on
perhaps twelve a9 honorable, good,
citizens as the thirty odd thousand in
habitants of Cass county contains. Let
the public see the names of these men
and read those names along side the
name of the blackguard who attempts to
throw rotten eggs at them. Geo. E.
Dovey, Andrew Chdstensen. Nicholos
Holmes, Andrew li. TTrjlor, Edwin Davis,
Levi Churchill, Henry Eikenbary, Con
rad Vallerv, li. Siebold, Jos. V. Wcck

.There was scarcely a name among these
gentlemen that has not been a houshold
word in Cass county for honesty, sobiiety
and first-class business qualifications for
the past quarter of a century. There is
not a man on that jury who is not a gen
tleman; not one who has not a good
name for honesty in his dealings with his
fellow men; not one who does not pay
his debts, his rent, his grocery bills; r.ot
one who has not the entire confidence of
his fellow citizens, the respect of the
community iu which he lives; not one
whom you would not trust your pocket
book with. Now write the name of
f has. W. Sherman alongside this list of
names and apply the foregoiug test to
him and how does he appear? lie is the
m in who talks of 4ia fool jury," of "an

injured several weeks ago while attend

dollar gold piece yesterday as a Christ

work in the yards. Mr Goolsby's re

The home of Mr. 11. B. Windham
was the scene of a very pleasant party on
Christmas eve. A Christmas tree had
been erected for the occasion and a lart
number of very handsome costly present
were distributed among those present.
Mr. Windham presented his wife with a
costly seal skin cloak, while she made
him the present of a handsome dressing
gown. Those present were J. M. Putter
son, sr., and family; Jas. Patterson, jr.,
and wife; Tom Patterson and wif and
Lillia Thompson and Mr. J. A. Davies
Mrs B. Murphy met with a very
painful accident at her home yesterday
morning, which she did not appreciate
much as a Christmas present. " While
standing on a chair arranging window
curtains at the top of a window, sh
missed her step and fell to the floor. In
throwing her left arm out to save herself
she fell upon it in such a way as to dis
locate the wrist, at the same time tearing
some of the nerves so thnt the injury U
considered much worse than a break and
will require more time to regain its use.
At first it was reported that the arm was
