In the First ward Frank E. White
and Jno. A. MacMurphy were the
only candidates. Mr. MacMurphy
was elected bv Hi votes, l he elec

the Herald is bound to say that
both the candidates behaved
themselves admirably. Holh were
good men, and either would have
made good representatives for

Dear Herald: Since you kindly
extended an invitation to senu m
"our side of the question" of base
ball matches, we send you for this
week's publication a report of the
"Social Match" played at Weep
ing Water, Neb., Saturday, Aug
ust 15, by the "Temperance Nine'
of Hock Bluffs and the "Weeping
Waters" of .Weeping Water. The
game was one of interest to both
sides and passed off smoothly and
auiellv under the government of
Mr. Hellows, who was chosen um
pire, and Shered Craves, who was
chosen scorer. Through the hos
pitalities of the Weeping Water
boys we were made perfectly com
fortable during our whole stay
wilh them; and, fortunately for
us, there were no "men of military
renown" in attendance to make
"dollar bets" on us, and then go
back on and discourage us in the
game. Drunkenness was entireiy
absent. from our game; a thing
which is too often attendant upon
such occasions. The score was:
