The country would like to hoar
miliar resolution from the central or
ganization of the clan and to hear of it
being made applicable not only to as
atsination in America, but also in Europe
and in every part of the world.
A foreigner landing in . this country,
and esiecially a foreigner who absolves
himself by oath ffoin all allegiance to
foreign powers and assume the functions
of American citizenship, mutt conform
himself to the laws of the United States.
And it is part of that law that no resi
dent or citizen shall conspire against the
peace and welfare of a foreign natioa
ith which this country has amicable
relations. Sympathy with the cause of
home rule for Ireland is well enough,
but conspiracy to molest or disturb any
European Government or to endanger
the life or property of any of its citizens
is an act in contempt of the authority of
the United States. It is high time that

of purposes connected with European

So it turns out that the Plattsmouth
schools are on the accredited list of the
State University after all, and are likely
to remain there. Will The Herald kind
ly make amends by telling the truth.
The Journal evidently tries to make
out The Herald has lied, but it has not.
The Herald has claimed all along that
Plattsmouth was on the accredited list,
we went so far as to give the number of
the page it could be found on. in the
catalogue, The Herald only claimed
that it did not rightfully belong there.
' We were shown a letter yesterday, that
stated that Prof. Drummond knew whit
the requirements were and tbtt he could
bring our schools up to the grade re
quired, that he had promised to do so,
therefore Plattsmouth would remain on
the accredited list This goes to show
that The Herald was right in its state
ment that our schools were not np to the
requirements aiid The Herald would
like to see them brought up to the proper
This same promise was given three
years agj. "Why were not our schools
brought up to this standard before now ?
Again Memorial Day has come and
gone. The swift round of time, repeat
iuff the sweet lesson of love and frater
nity, of charity aed forgiveness, that the
nation is slowly learning, is the herald ef
its future glory. A change of sentiment
in the observance of the day has
gradually come with the pissing year.
The day that was originally dedicated to
sorrow by the thousands who brought
their flowers to place upon the graves of
the soldier dead, were not without bitter
ness in the grief of personal loss. Wives
and mothers, sisters and sweethearts,
fathers and brothers, went with minds
tilled with the thoughts of a vacant place
in the family circle. The grave on
which the flowers were placed, was treat
ed as the last resting place of the lost
son or brother, not as the honorable
mound of some dead hero.
From those silent mounds the voice
of experience speaks to every listening
heart; felt not heard. It speaks of
.dangers past and of duties at hand.
Instead of the futile rebellion is the

COLLECTED OS THE COUNTY COURT HOUSE
HOND QUESTION BY THE BOARD OF TRADE
AND ADDDESSED TO THE VOTERS
Plattsmotth, Neb., May 15, 18S9.
The county commissioners of Cass county
having called an election to vote for or
against issuing $S0,000 twenty-year court
house bonds, we desire to lay the actual
facts before every property owcer and
voter in the county, relying upon thei
intelligent consideration of the same in
casting their vote at the coming election
June 8th, 18S9.
The total bonded indebtedness of the
county is $100,000, These are the rail
road bonds, and the interest has been paid
as it accrued. The principal is due $20,
000 in June of each of the years of 1890
91-92-03-94. Cash in the sinking fund
to pay these bonds is now $50,000, and
sufficient cash in the other funds to pay
all current expenses. So the real indebt
edness of the county is only $.0,000 at
the present time-

City and Precinct $1,287,191
Eighty thousand dollars at 5
per cent will cost annually, .... $4,000,
Nine-tenths of one mill on the

More than sufficient to pay the interest
on the bonds.

of land in the county as shown by the
records is about $450. so that the owner

each year. These figures are based on
the 1888 assessment. The valuation will
be greater in 1889, by possibly $300,000,
and will increase largely each succeeding
We believe that a new court house
should be built, not only for the sake of
building the same in our city but for the
protection of the records of the county
clerk, county treasurer, county register,
county judge and the clerk of the dis

every farmer and land owner in the
county is vitally interested.

Gents: Your Mr. Brocks came here
tonight and registered as agent for Hi fa
bard's Rheumatic Syrup, and as he did
so it awakened in me an interest neyer
before realized in a guest at my house.
You will not wonder at it when I tell
you the story. For years I have been
greatly afflicted with inflammatory rheu
matism, the pain and soreness of the
joints at times being almost unbearable;
could move about onlv with the aid of
crutches.- In addition to this my stomach
became badly diseased,- and neuralgia 6et
in, which threatened to end my day. A
traveling man stopping with me gye
quite a history of your Syrup, and the
peculiarities of its combination, which
induced me to try it. I have taken six
bottles and no act in my life affords me
greater satisfaction than in writing you
I Hiii a well man.

Martinique Is a garden of romantic
beauty, extending from the edge of the
pretty harbor to tho foot hills of the
mountains, and looks like a fragment of

of venerable stone, antique in structure,

LIFE ON THE ISLAND.
Everybody lives out of doors. The
harbor is skirted by a wide boulevard,
shaded by palm trees and furnished with
iron seats, where the populace gather in
tho evening and chatter liko magpies.
During the day the women sit in the
gardens, and at night sleep in hammocks
under the verandas, except in the rainy
season, when they keep their houses.
There is no glass in tho windows, and
not a chimney in the place. All the
cooking is done in charcoal stoves, or
upon shelves of stone liko a blacksmith's
On an eminence overlooking the town
stands a statue of tho Blessed Virgin, like
a protecting guardian, benignant and
serene, I here are somo lino churches
and one old cathedral that is worth a
visit. The people are mostly Catholics,
but there is a large colony of Jews en
gaged in banking and trado.
Tho town of Fort do France, which
was known as tort Koyal during the
time of the empire, is tho seat of the
government, whero the lieutenant gov
ernor lives and commands a garrison of
300 or 400 colored soldiers. It is about
twenty miles from St. Pierre and has
10,000 inhabitants, but the latter place
is tho commercial capital and the fash
ionable residence. The blacks and whites
live together as brothers and sisters of
tho common family, often Intermarry
ing. Many of the colored families are
wealthy and aristocratic, and send their
children abroad to be educated.
The upper class wear the latest French
fashions and livo with considerable com
fort; but the colored women of the com
mon class, as elsewhere in the tropics,
are clad in a single garment of cotton,
without any particular design of con
cealing or exposing their anatomy.
They load themselves with a large
amount of jewelry of peculiar designs,
and on Sunday and feast days get them
selves up in a most elaborate and out
landish manner, men and women both
rivaling the plumage of the birds in the
myriad colors they assume. There are

There is a good opera house where
performances aro often given by local
talent, and once in a while an opera or a

of tho most beautiful parks in the world

there is a magnificent fountain of bronze,
a graceful water nymph, fourteen feet
high, bearing upon her head a basket,
from tho rim of which jets of water flow.
In August tliis fountain exhibits what

The Newspaper Deatjbeat.
A newspaper deadbeat is one of the
nuisances the restaurant patron has to
contend with. Let a man sit down to
the table with tho daily paper, and there
is always some one near who is watching
for an opportunity to get his news for
nothing. As soon as the paper is laid on
the table it is instantly captured with a
suave "bog pardon," and the chance for
he man who had purchased his paper to
gather the news as he enjoys the meal if
lost. Courtesy or ordinary politeness
prevents a gentleman from resenting such
on imposition, and as a consequence there
is nothing to' do but gracefully submit.
