Results of the Election.
The election haa come and gone
and th honor
are neany evenly
divided, for which we are truly
thankful, considering the odds
which we had to work against.
xhe day went off very quietly, only
one or two "free for all's" being re
ported. We consider that we came
off pretty well, in a city where a
large democratic vote ha always
been polled, when we think that
two of our men were inqualifidely
elected and one a tie which we will
doubtless win, making; three out of
the seven officers elected. The fol.
lowing is the vote as polled.

In THE Herald of last week we
published a very meatrer report of
the He89 8t,ootinir affair at Kairle.
We wish to make a correction by
saying that none of the statements
were true, as we have aiuce learned,
but it was the only account we
could get at the time. It is a well
known fact, in the neighborhood of
Eagle, that Andy Hess and his
brothera are noted for being lawless
characters. On the day of the
shooting they were in Kagle and
loaded themselves with bad
whisky and the curse of all lawa
biding citizens, before starting
home. On the road home they
overtook Mr. Can- ami family who
had been in town until late in the
evening, attending dinner given by
some friends. Aa soon as the Hess
crowd recognized Mr. Carr they be
gan a tirade of most abusive lan
guage and drove the wagon tongue
through the back of Mr. Carr'a car
rage: then driving out to the side
they endeavored to lack their
wheels into those of Mr. Carr, bug
gy, and in many other ways exas
perated and abused him. This
conduct they kept up until reach
ing Mr. Carr's home. When he
turned into his gate they attempt
ed to drive ahead of him and only
by dint of great danger to his
family and applying the whip to
his own hones did he succeed in
getting through. He drove around
to the back part of the house and
sprang from the buggy throwing
the lines, to his wife, and rushed in
to the kitchen just aa the Hess
hoodtems, having tied their horses
outside, came into the back yard
with the intention, they aaid of kil
ling him. Mr. Carr standing in the
door warned them that they were
on his premises and ordered them
off immediately. At this they rush
ed for him uttering most foul
oaths, when he reached back of the
door secured a shot gun and fired
into the crowd, hiting Andy Hess
in the hand and stomach. The last
reports are that he will get well but
probably los his hand. Should he
die it will be a pure case of justi
fiable homicide and no more than
any other man with a grain of
sense or manhood alxnit him
"Joe" is so crowded with new
goods and business that he hasn't
time to write us an ad. The one he
has in this week is only a forecast
of what is coming.

Supt. Noble is trying to make ar
rangements for a regular course of
institute work, so that a teacher
can finish the course in four year,
after which he will not be compell
ed to attend the institute.
In order to make this work more
permanent, he had the teachers
elect a comittee to take charge of
it. The committee is as follows:
Mr. Waterhouse of Weeping
Water; Mr. Halsey of Plattsmoth;
Mr. Killer of Louisville; Mr, Haugh
ty of P.lmwood; Mr. Farley of Cedar
Creek, and Misses Chevorant of
Greenwood, Nurtz of Murray Fos

were present and every one had a
very pleasant time.

Taken altogether the institute was
a very pleasant and profitable one,
and the teachers have gone back to
their schools, feeling better pre

Did you notice those seersucker
suits last Sunday.
The wreck and explosion in the B.
A M. yards at South Omaha has
culminated in a very nasty mess
for Plattsmouth. The wreck was
caused by the explosion of a tank
car of naptha which set fire to, and
burned three car loads of cattle and
one car-load of hogs. It was a
Missouri Pacific wreck and they
had to pay for the stock that was
killed' and remove the carcases,
which they did, but to the eminent
danger of people who use city
wuter as they dumped the whole
putrified caronaus iiiefs into , the
Platte river at the bridge. The
rotten cargo was put off into the
north side of the river where the
water is not deep enough to float
the carcases and the filthy ptirtri
fiug mass lies there oozing out in
to the water that is used by the
city of Plattsmouth. The health
officer has investigated the matter
but finds he can do nothing as it is
not in Cass county; being just over
the line in Sarpy coucty. The
stench at the bridge is almost un
endurable. The water from the
city is taken from the river about
three miles below the pile ofcaron.
It seems that something ought and
should be done with such lawless
uess. The Misses Wigtoti's have just re
ceived a large tdiipiiieut of fine mil
linery goods. Their store looks
like a veritable flower garden. Just
notice it some time.
