VERY TAME AFFAIR Republican City Convention Held Friday Evening. RE NOMINATED OLD OFFICIALS MptKrt. Newell. Unruh and Kerr Again Placed on the Ticket Dave Miller Nominated Fur Police Judge Other Happening. The republican city primaries were opened at five o'clock Friday after noon and closed at seven The coun cilmanic ticket nominated is as fol lows: First v.ird, Homer McKay; sec ond ward, J F. Ilinshaw; third ward, F. Il.Steimker; fourth ward, Charles S.Johnson; fifth ward, Joseph Lloyd. TIIE CONVENTION. The convention was "harmonious'' in the extreme, and was utterly devoid of interest, but for several very ludicrous situations. The nomina tions were all made by acclamation, with the exception of members of the school hoard. It was a noticeable fact that not one of the nominees thanked the convention for "honors thrust upon them,"etc, and they also failed to state that "the democrats wouldn't know they had been in the race after April 7." They foresaw the handwriting on the wall, and didn't feel lie cracking jokes. S. II. Atwood called the convention to order and J. Y. Johnson wa made temporary chairman. Jesse L. Root declined the secretaryship and John lieuuie was named. The fun commenced when the secretai y began reading the delegates' names. The iirst name read was that of Mike Mauzy. the next democratic council man from the first ward. This caused all colors of consternation in there publican camp, but elicited vociferous applause from the "Sixth" warn dele gates, who, by the way, were quite numerous, occupying the rear end of the room. A consultation ot war was held, and after a few minute Mike's name was cruelly stricken from the list of first ward delegates, auo substituted by that of his brother. Henry. On motion of Ami Todd, the temp orary organization was made perma neut, and the nominations were thei. declared in order. After a few minutes of suspense. Todd arose and nominated Mayoi Xewell, and, as no one else desired t risk defeat, the nomination was mad by acclamation applause Somebod , presumable from the "sixth" ward feebly called for a speech, but Mr Xewell didn't want to disturb the har mony, and failed to respond. Cbet Smith nominated J. I. Unruh foi treasurer, hich w as also made unani- mmw ti,i Ft C. KVrr's nnminatioi for clerk, b Crof . Eikenbary, met with no opposition. A nominee for poli judi:e was not out, and finally Mr Todd arose, and, After stating tha "the third ward could produce a can didate for all of the offices," presented the name of Dave Miller for that posi tion, and he was placed upon the ticket. S. A. Davis, II. 13. Windham and Dr. Marshall were put up as nominees for school board. Davis was nomi nated on the fir3t ballot, but Wino ham and Marsnall tied. Windham, however, was victorious on the second ballot, and was accordingly declared nominat-d. This ended the business and the meeting was adjourned. The C'ity Morula Improvinc Police Judge Archer, in looking ovei his records for the past three years, finds that the arrests made by the po lice during that time have been grad ually decreasing In 1S93 there wert 131 arrests made, in 1S94 only 90, while in 1695 the record was eighty arrests. Judge Archer says that, judging from the first two months of this year tbt arrests for 189C will be less than in any of the above years. This is a mat ter of congratulation fur every citizen of Plattsmouth. Painter Organize. The painters and decorators of Plattsmouth. feeling the need of be ing in closer touch with each other, met Monday and formed an organiza tion which will be known as tb Paiuter.-' and Decorators' association, ot Plattsmouth. Benton Kmkead was elected president thereof, and M. M. Peal secretary. A scale of prices was agreed upon, and all members agreed to pav ten dollars into the common treasury for every violation of the scale.

The new time table on the Missouri Pacific, which was announced for last Sunday, will not go into effect until tbe29lh inst. A stranger approached ex-Governor Taylor of Tennessee recently with ex tended hand, and Baid: "Your face is familiar; where in hell did I meet you?" "I don't know," replied the governor; "what part of hell are you from?" The spectacle of Dave Miller occu pying the ffice of police judge is al most too funny to be believed But the voters of Plattsmouth won't allow the important office of police judge to be made a faice of. Judge Archer will be retained theie. A horse belonging to Robert Mathews and driven by Maurice Criss man indulged in a lively runaway at the Missouri Pacific depot at noon. Mr. Crissman was thrown from the cart and considerably bruised up. Ne braska City News. The assessors of Sarpy county have decided to assess property in that county at actual value, and a vigorous kick from the tax-payers is expected. An exchange states the exact truth when it remarks that a newspaper has five thousand readers to one thous and subscribers. A merchant that puts out a tbousaud bills gets possbly three or four hundred people to read hem, that is if the boy who is trusted o distribute them doesn't chuck them under the sidewalk. Newspaper ad vertising is the best advertising on earth. The Journal, respectfully invites Prof. Roentgen to cast one of bis X- raysonthe democratic nominees for the city offices of Plattsmouth, and see if anything is wrong with them. If the voters of this city want a good. clean administration, they will place an X (ray) opposite the name of each democrat on the ticket. Four safes were crackea at Lincoln Saturday night by burglars, and the total amount of money secured was ten cents. Now it is a cryptoscope, which will "cable one to see through solid suo- ances, such as armor plates, cannon alls and barn doors, with the naked ye. Next we may look for an inven ion which will enable one to see head and behind at the same time. Chis might be called the gettherewith- uothfeetscope. Nebraska City News. This assessors of Sarpv county will his year assess property in that county t its actual value. "This conclusion vas reached," says the Papillion Pimea, "at a meeting of the assessors ield last Tuesday. wheD a vote was assed to "follow the statutes." That s the first county in the state to adopt hat course. Since the indefatigable statistician rias demonstrated that the meek and lowly hn lays 8135,000,000 worth o ner product per year, there are evi dences of a movement to substitute her for the eagle as our national em blem. The eagle's importance is principally in the looks, while the ben remains homely and attends strictly to business. Cincinnati Tribune. Many years ago Barney Barnato rented a little house in one of the frontier towns of South Africa. Bar ney spent considerable in improving the house, but he quarreled with his landlord and decided to move. By inserting the following advertisement in the local paper the prospective millionaire in some measure got even with his landlord: "Wanted, by a gentleman who agreed to leave dwell ing occupied by him in condition in which lie found it, 100.000 lively black beetles." Then followed Barney's name and address. These Spanish mobs will keep at it until they hurt a Yankee or two and then there will be some fun Cleveland Ledger. ( rippled While Ilunnlnc a Race.
