A. dog up in the Third ward played
a joke on some small boys this morning.
It was a strange dog to the neighborhood
and took a fit in the yard of John Shaf
ftr. The animal went into a dead stupor
from the fit and some smell boys took it
to heart and decided to bury the brute.
A spade was secured and for half an
Jiour they labored in the alley in the hot
uiubine till a deep grave was dug. One
of the lids, to make sure the dog was
dead, gave it a few hard kicks, where
upon it revived and getting up ran away,
to the astonishment of the grave diggers.

Republicans Must Cat a Moys en
Them if They Accomplish
The city electin is progressing after s
democratic fashion. A visit to the dif
ferent wards of the city at noon today
by a Herald reporter, disclosed a queer
state of facts. In the Third ward the
democratic candidate .for councilman,
Chas. Ilempel, was surrounded by ward
workers of the different nationalities.
The Scandinavian and Bohemian, the
German and American ward workers
were "cheek by joval" for Hemple.
The republicans were represented by Sig
Green alone and seemed to be in a hope
In the Second ward the "gang" had
entire possession and Councilman Jones,
evidently, so far as outward appearances
were concerned, had it all his own way.
In the First and Fourth ward the
same condition of affairs existed. The
few republican ward-workers found
about i he polls were reported "off" and
quietly helping some democratic candi
date, either councilman or school di
rector. In the Fifth ward, Life O'Neill and
J. D. Simpson will prubably be elected,
as the republicans are reported to be ter
ribly divided in that new ward.
Enquiring of a prominent republican
what all this state of affairs meant he re
plied: "Submission is at the bottom of
the whole affair. Ostensibly, some of
the republican politicians are professing
that they were disappointed at the result
of the primaries; ethers that Drummond
must be saved to the Plattsmouth
schools. Yet, when the gauze is pulled
aside and the naked truth exposed, it is
the eight Plattsmouth saloons that are
running the city election today."
TnE Herald predicts, very nearly, a
clean sweep for the democratic council
men's ticket, with odds in favor of their
capturing the two school directors. At
the different wards Wnu. Weber and hi
brother saloon keepers are found at all
moments, actiye, vigilant and canfldent.
W hope we &;e mistaken, yet we back
our judgment that we are not.
"How do you like eight hours ? " is a
question that went the rounds yesterday
ind was applied to a great many shop
Hands and the answers are the best mean
of describing how it takes. Some re
plied, "Eight hours suits me all right,
.jives me plenty of time to loaf, go fish
ing and bum around." Others said "I
have no complaint to make, of course
I would rather work ten hours if I could
but I can live on eight and will improye
the other two." Others said, "It don't
effect me any, but there are some fellows
witli families that say they cannot keej
up." Still another replied: "Eight
hours don't touch me; I worked in Kroeh
l?rs gang and they laid me off. Quite
t number of fellows have been laid ofl
ill through the shops, notwithstanding
the rsdnction in time." One man from
he hammar department of the black
mitu suop said: "We get bandied a
little different from the other fellows;
ve work ten hours a day and are laid oft
oat urn ay s. jnat gives us two more
ours a week than the rest of them, too.'
And thu3 the answers came, all seemed
to be determined to take things as they
A couple of Bohemians talking over
the matter used these words, "Well, how
lo y u like to work eight hours t" "1
lon't like eight hours, it's too much
ight hour free trade."
The extending of the telephone service
over the city which it was found neces
sary to d' in order to supply the demand
she public made on that institution, and
which was begun about two weeks ago
is progressing rapidly. The new switch
ohrd to accommodate 200 subscribers
is iu foursections; one section has been
placed at the office. Over twelve miles
ind a half of wire has been strung.
Twenty new 'phones arrived Saturday,

creditable system of telephone service.

In Police Court.
A case was decided in police court
this morning which will, it is hoped, be
a lesson to some of the roudics
in the city who have not learned
how to behave in public. For
some time complaint Las come from the
colored church that young men would
come there and act very disrespectfully
during services, and Sunday night capers
were cut by some of tha shite visitors
beyond endurance, and yesterday noon
warrants were issued for the arrest of
Chas. W. Wheeler, Gid Archer and R.
Henderson, charging them with disturb
ing the peace at the meeting Sunday
ni"ht. The boys were arrested last
night and tried and this morning Judge
Clifford found them guilty and fined
Wheeler and Archer $2.00 and costs
each, and Henderson ' $1.Q0 and costs.
They gave $50.00 bonds and appealed to
the district court.
