The Prolate Judge of Douglas
county. Mr. Hascali, comes down on
the supposed Democracy of Nebraska
The Herald of this city, purchased
with the plunder of a camp follower in
the late war. gels considerably excited
over the Probate Judge of Douglas
county. It speaks of the abuse of the
party that warmed hiru into life, &.c.
When it refers to the party, it is sup
posed to mean the Joint Stock Company
of "Shysters" that i:ifet the counties
oi Douglas and Otoe. The Judge has
always been an enthusiastic Democrat,
and has done full as much for the party
as the party has done fr him. He
denies that the "Stysiers" aforesaid
have given him any warmth, but on 'lie
contrary have fought him from his first
entrance into the Territory.
He now gives them notice that he is
not only going to warm them, but be
fore he gets through he will make
them uncomfortably hot. Before it at
tempts to read any one out of in Dem
ocratic party, some one had tetter or
ganize such a party m rxebraska. The
party now in existence wa hatched in
Philadelphia. The antecedents of the
Judge have never been denied, and
never will be. He expects no favors
of the radicals, and is not of the favor
in? kind. Can the editor of the Her
aid say as much?
