QUESTION III THE
A Letter From Horace Greeley in
the Possession of William
Gilmore, South of Town.'
A document that is very highly
prized as an historical relic is in
the possession of William Ci!
mour, who resides south of this
cily, and the document, which is
n letter from Horace Greeley, the
treat editor of the ew York
Tribune, is anion? the mo-t
value. possessions of Mr. Cil
more, who receded it from his
father, one of the earliest settler
of Cass county. Uefore coming
to Nebraska Mr. Gilmour was one.
of the pioneer in the free 'soil
movement in the state of Michi
gan, where he resided, and was a
hard worker in the cause which
jn the late forties and early Jiflie.-;
M-enn-d almost a forlorn hop; un
til the agitation over the Doug
lass Nebraska bill opened th way
for the formation of a party to
oppose the advance of slavery and
gave birth to the republican
The elder Mr. Gilmour came to
this section in 1853, before the
Indians had removed from this
part of Nebraska, but kept in con
stant touch with the. progress of
events in the political world, and
in this way securer! the letter of
Mr. CifWy, which was addressed
to William II. Thompson of
Rochester. Michigan. The writ
ing in the letter is of the sort for
which th-? great editor was noted
and it would require an expert to
decipher the hirogliphies in the
letter. Mr. Gilrnour, the present
possessor of the letter, has had
F. (. Fncke of this city make a
tanslation of the letter that he
might thoroughly understand the
contents of the d cmnent, as well
as to preserve the contents that it
might ,Le retained by, future
gn-xatioiis. The letter from Mr.
CJreeley is as follows:
New York, May 8, 183 i.
My Dear Sir The considera
tion you urge against passage of
Douglas' Nebraska bill has al
ready been more than, once set
forth in the Tribune. I think it
perfectly demonslratable that
congress, as trustee oi the public
land, is morally bound to exclude
slavery therefrom, since that
tends t diminish the value of
tho-e lands. I will press the idea
again. Unhappily, howeer, the
controversy is to be settled, not
by weight of arguments, but by
weight of numbers, and I now
cherish a plan that we are doom
ed to a temporary defeat. Yours,
William II. Thompson.
WILL PAY STfilCT AT
TENTION TO THE PLAGUE
Has His Hand Cut.
From Friday's Daily.
This morning while A. (I. John
" was engaged in working on a
door at the coach shop he met
with quite a painful accident that
will put him out of commission
for sonni time. The draw-knife
with which he was working slip
ped and inflicted quite a gash in
the palm of his left hand. The
injury was dressed at once and
Gus made to feel as comfortable
as posib!e undr the circum
stances, but will be forced to de
sist from his labors for a few-days.
There has been a thorough and
earnest effort made by the school
authorities to handle the dif
ficulties rendered by the scarlet
fever situation in the city and
wherever a case has been report
ed in the schools the room where
the trouble was discovered has
been, closed up and the places
thoroughly disinfected. The
parents of the children are also
urged to do their part in assist
ing iji keeping down the spread of
the disease in the different parts
of town by keeping their children
at home, where they will not be
brought in contact with other
children from whom they might
acquire the disease. It is of lit
tle use for the school authorities
to take the precautions they have
if the children are to be allowed
to run around on the. streets and
to congregate together, with the
result that there is quite a great
deal of the disease scattered
around and the gvd of closing
down the schools lost in the care
li'ssiiess of the parents and chil
dren. There should be an earnest
effort made by the parents in the
city to co-nperate with the board
of education and the superintend
ent in trjing to do their best to
stop the spread of the scarlet
fever by keeping their children
away from gatherings of other
children where they might be
come exposed to the disease.
There has been some talk
among the lovers of the great na
tional game of base ball of the
formation of a league of Cass
county towns during; the coming
season, and this is an idea that
should be taken up in real earnest
by the different wide-awake towns
of the county and steps taken to
see that such an organization is
formed at once to take up the
work of the base ball season.
Plattsmouth, Union, Avoca,
Cedar Creek, Elmwood, Louisville,
Weeping Water and Nehawka all
have made a most favorable
showing in the past few seasons,
and with a league formed from
these live towns there should be
a splendid opportunity afforded
the lovers of the game to witness
some mighty good ball games
during the coming summer. The
smaller teams throughout the
state are forming into these
leagues to better give the patrons
a higher class of base ball than
formerly, and Casg county should
not be behind in the procession.
Let the question of the formation
of a league of this character be
discussed among the different
towns of the county and a date
fixed for a general meeting where
the organization can be perfected
and the officers elected and other
arrangments made to get the
situation well in hand.
The schedule of games could
be arranged so that each town
could receive an equal share of
games durintr the season and it
would undoubtedly prove a great
success in every way. That it
would be a ucceA there is lit
tle doubt and the patrons of the
games would be greatly pleased
with the new arrangement, which
would create a friendly rivalry for
the honor of heading the league.

SOME OF THE FARMERS
BUSY DRAGGING THE ROADS
That the farmers of this sec
tion of the county are alive to the
needs of good roads is shown in
the work that has been done on
the roads near their farms by
John Meisinger, jr., and Wash A.
Young", who reside some lie miles
west of the city on the Cedar
Creek road. These enterprising
farmers, as soon as the weather
permitted, got out the old road
drag and put in several hours of
labor in improving' the roadway
along their farms, and as a result
the road is one that is a pleasure
to travel over and the mail carrier
on that route. Miles Allen, says
that both of these gentleman are
desering of a ote of thanks f.-r
the public spirit they hae shown
in coining to the front in t! aid
of good road. This is an -r
ample that should be folb.v.e.j by
other farmers of this s.etimi ..f
the county and if all united in He
movement it would not be lueg
until the roads throughout the
country would be in line shape.
Right now, before the real bu-y
time on the farm starts, .-h-uid
be utilized in gelling the roads ji-
shape to lat until the plant in-'
season is over, when a few days
Could be spared to d m t r e w v ti

From Saturday Dallr.
Some time last August there
was a party of young: ladies of
this city enjoying-, a picnic party
on the banks of the old Missouri
near the Burlington bridge, and
while there one of the girls dis
covered an old bottle and the
party decided to write their names
on a slip of paper and cast the
bottle out on the rushing current
of the river to sec what would be
come of it, and in. the hopes that
thev might some time receive a
reply from the party who picked
the bottle out of the river. This
morning one of the young; ladies
received a reply to their message
in a letter from Rulo, Neb., where
the bottle had been found by a
young man who was .with a hunt
ing' party on the river there a few
days ago, and he very kiudly en
closed his address with the re
quest that the members of the
picnic early open up a cor
respondence with him. l( is
thought that perhaps the result
of the finding of the bottle may
result in a beautiful romance,
especially if the finder should de
man, but judging from the writ
ing; it is more likely to be an old
time fisherman, in which case,
good-night to the romance.
