I Ik- actioi s of A. C 'viler in tin; re-
iimvul cue are not Kuncuoneu iy a
lz'ii people in his own district. Ho
Ih utterly Intraym the coiilnlcncc re
posed in him ly the voters who elected
lii in commissioner f CJas county, and
has therefore drove the nails in his own
politic-nl coHin. Elniwood Echo.
The editor of the Elmwood Echo
ought, in the interests of decency and
honor, he ashamed to print so untruth
ful and unfair a statement as the above.
Mr. Lodor was elected by the whole
county, and while ho received more votes
from Piattsmouth city than ho did from
all the precincts in the county combined,
yet that had no effect on hia decision".
Mr. Loder'a sworn duty is to guard and
look after the interests of the whole
county, not that of a precinct or district.
It is his sworn duty to follow the course
prescribed by law, this he has done.
The talk about unfairness of the board
of couuty commissioners comes with very
bad trrace from th? gang that forged the
names on a petition which was used as a
basis for calling a county seat election
two years ago. When a part of the peo
ple wanted to be heard by remonstrance
or otherwise, your county boarl ignored
the plaiu letter of the law, ignored jus
tice and honesty by calling the election
Ht.once, and. that the same scheme is
frustrated, now you howl like one bereft
of his sense-; fair tivatment is not what
on want-on the other hand.it is exactly
a hat you don't want. What are the
f icts about this immaculate petition of
yours f Forty days were taken to in
vestigate thoroughly the. signatures.
Of course, you howled at ti at; you did
not want them investigated; you knew
they would not bear iuvestigation. Af
ter the commission rs made up their
minds in the face of the law as .it ap
peared to them that they dared not ca 1
lite election on the petition before thera
without doing violence to their oath of
otJice, the county attorney, H. I). Travis,
Esq.. a man whose every interest is in
Weepirg Water, but wlio is known all
;ver the district as an able lawyer, was
called in and consulted by the board.
Alter looking the matter over, Mr.
Travis was compelled by his sense of
honor to agree with the commissioners,
uid so infirmed tiiein. It is true that
Mr. Trietsch lives near Louisville, but
that fact did not deter him from doing
what he knew the law demanded of him
This consant abuse ot the cotuniissioDers,
because they would not become willing
;oo's of the west end, is cowardly and
r-ieen. No m-.n of principle, conversant
with the far-ts, would engage in any such
w.rf.'iv. Wli.it is for (he best interests
of the county s a debatable subject, but
the d. in and than an ofiieer should violate
lis snored oath is not deb-itnble or allow
bl'j iu any .sene of the word.

This arrangement would give four
districts to the independents, one to the
democrats, while in the First the race
would lie a "free for all," with chances
slighty in favor of the republicans.
In representative districts Mr. Scott
gives Cass two members a9 the Seventh
district and an additional member with
Otoe, which ui.kes the runtli district.
