that we indorse the Reconstruction pol

the seceded States.

the acts of Congress, and in contempt

Fror.i Prof. Miller, who left Lincoln
City at noon last Friday, we learn that,
up to that time, about $3G,000 wor:h of
lots had been sold. They had been
mostly bought by eastern men. Only
about S6.0OT -worth - Imu-bccc bcyghi
by Nebtaska City people, showing con
clusively that it was not through any
systematic effort that lots were sold, but
that capital was seeking investment be
cause it would pay.
The first day's sales amounted to
about $16,000, and averaged about 16
per cent, above the minimum value.
On the second day the sales averaged
near CO per cent, above the minimum

James Sweet, Eq.f of Nebraska
City, had already contracted for the
erection of a building at $G,0Q0, which
he proposed using for a banking house
It is thought that tbe sales at Ne
braska City will close out the entire
amount; or, in other words, that at the
expiration of the five day's sale at that
place, there will be no lots left to offer
for sale.
If any of our Plattsmouth friends
desire to invest they had better go to
Nebrasea City at once, for the sale will
never be opened here.
At th rate lots have been selling,
the entire amount to be offered at this
time will bring between $90,000 and
8100,000, leaving a surplus fund of
$40,000 or $50,000 more than the
Commissioners are authorized to ex
pend on the capitol building a. the
present time.
Lincoln is already a success, despite
the wry faces made in Omaha. East
ern capitalists have penetrated the
gauze of Omaha opposition, and
see clearly that the strong ground of
opposition is because it is a success.
Ashland, Sept. 23, 1867.
Mb. Editor: The Republicans of
Sanders county met on Saturday the
21st, in Ashland, and perfected their
organization by the appointment of a
County Central Committee, Mr. Denis
Dean being Chairman, and placing in
nomination a straight out and out Re
publican ticket, consisting of Austin
Smith for County Commissioner; Dents
Dean, County Treasurer ; R. L. War
britton, Clerk and Recorder; Jacob
Saunders, Probate Judge; Henry
Reasoner, Sheriff, and William H. Gil
bert, Coroner all of which we pro
pose giving a respectable majority at
the coming election.
We present our readers with the
ticket nominated at the Republican
Convention last Saturday, in tbe full
belief that It will meet with the hearty
approval of every Republican voter in
the county. The convention which
placed this ticket in nomination was
composed of men who have the best
interests of the county at heart, and
men who represent the people pretty
James O'Neill, our candidate for
County Commissioner, is one of the
most extensive land owners iu the coun
ty, and a man whose financial ability
cannot be doubted. The interests of
the county would be safe in his hands,
because to damage the county would be
to damage himself.
The candidate for Probate Judge,
IV. D. Gage, is a man well known in
Cass county, and one whom no one can
say aught against. He has served
many years in the capacity of Justice
of the Peace, and is eminently quali
fied for the position of coun-.y Judge.
The candidates for Treasurer and
Clerk are tried ve'erans. They need
no recommend except their own actions
in the past. It will be said ty the op
position that they have held the offices
long enough, and a change should be
made and that is all they can, with
honesty, say against thein. But, do
you discard an old and tried friend,
merely because he has proved faithful
for a term of years? Is it not rather
an inducement to retain him? When
Mr. Duke and Spurlock first took hold
of county affairs, the county was $7,000
in debt; but through their exertions
and honest administration of affairs,
the county is now out of debt, and is
paying the cash for everything she has
done. Are the people of Cass county
tired of this ? Do they wish the coun
ty back to the eld standard, with orders
worth 50 cents on the dollar ? It they
do, why, then, don't elect Duke and
Spurlock, for they will keep it up to
the present standard and reduce the
taxes if they can.
,Jos. W. . Johnson, the candidate
for Sheriff, is "the right mac -in the
right place," and the Democracy uni
versally say "he will make a good
Sheriff, and it is no use for us to try to
beat him." He was one among the
first to answer his country's call for
volunteers to put down armed traitors,
and served faithfully, in tbe first com
pany raised in Nebraska, till the war
was closed and his regiment disbanded,
lie ia thoroughly qualified for the posi
tion, and will be elected by the largest
majority of any man on the ticket
mark that.
The candidate for Coroner and Sur
veyor, G. W. Fairfield, is well known
in the county, and will receive the full
vote of the party. Democrats are not
expected to vote this ticket unless they
wish to.
We published last week the affidavit
of Capt. Hoover to the effect that
the Plaltsmonth correspondent of the
Omaha Iletald had wilfully falsified in
regard to the registration of one Wm.
Snyder, anoTwe "now -give- th nffidavil
of Mr. Snyder, himself, to the same
Jcctices Office, Louisville Precinct, )
Cass Co., Neb., Sept. 17, 1S67. $
On this day came Win. Snyder, a
citizen of said precinct, and swore that
the statement of Mr. "C," from Piatts
mouth, in the Omahn Herald of the 12ih
of September, 1SG7, about the Regis
trar of said precinct, are untrue; that
I, Wm. Snyder, never made any such
Wm. Snyder.
Subscribed and sworn to before me
this 17lh day of September, 1SG7.

WouW it not be wise for the Omaha
Herald to secure a correspondent, if il
can, who would occasionally tell the
truth ? It would at least be advisable
to secure the services of one who could
evade beind caught in his falsehoods.
The orator of the Democratic Con
vention on Tuesday, said he "remem
bered when the Democracy handed
over the Government to other hands."
and that "just four years and one
month from that time, we had a debt of
$37,000,000" Yes, there are others
who remember that time. They re
member when it was "handed over" to
traitors ; but, thank God, the brave
boys in blue rescued it again, and we
still have a Governmeat and a loyal
Congress to control it, notwithstanding
it cost $37,000,000" and the life
blood of a hundred thousand patriot
hearts to recover it from ihe hands to
which it was "handed over" by the de
mocracy. Is it a matter to be publicly
boasted of at this lime, that the democ
racy "handed over" the Government
to traitors, and that it has cost the peo
ple "$37,000,000" and a hundred
thousand precious lives to rescue it?
W ell may the democracy remember the
time when it was done. It should not
soon be forgotten by any one.
We consider the proposition to issue
bonds to aid the B. &. M. R. R. Com
pany in the construction of their road
through this county of such vast im
portance to the future of the county,
that we cannot let it pass to a vote with
out another word in favor of the move.
There is not a man in the county
who will have the hardihood to say that
the building and running of a railroad
through the entire length of the count7,
east and west, will not le an immense
reriefit to every mnn who owns a dollar-
worth of property within 50 miles
of the line. Eveu here in Cass coun
ty we already feel the advantages of
the Pacific railroad ; what, then, would
be the effect of a road at our own
doors ? It may be said that it will not
increase the product of the soil one
bushel in fact, we have already heard
that used as an argument. No, it will
not ; but it will cause the same number
of bushels to bring a greater price and
establish a permanent market at home.
The immense products of Cass county,
and of all Nebraska, must find an out
let, and who does not know that the
home price will be increased just in pro
portion to the diminution of the cost of
transportation. All kinds of grain,
cattle, horses, and farm products gen
erally, are bringing to the city of
Omaha, to day, not less than ten per
cent, more than they are in any other
town in Nebraska ; and why ? It is
simply because that is an exporting
point the only point in the State that
has direct railroad connection with the
east and west; and it is in perfect ac
cord with the laws of commerce that
all exports should bring, at least, the
advance over the prices at other points
that are required ty transport at Oma
ha. For instance, if wheat designed
for shipment east by railroad is worth
$1 00 per bushel in Plattsmouth, and
it costs five cents per bushel to trans
port it from Plattsmouth to the railroad,
it is certainly wonh $1.05 per bushel
at the railroad, and would be worth
that figure here, or whatever the price
may be, if we had railroad communi
cation. "Now;il is a-wcl'.-knoxsrn fact that
strong efforts are being made to divert
the B. & M. il. R. to a point above the
Platte for the purposes of connecting
it with the Pacific road ; and if the
people of Cass county ever expect to
receive the benefits of a railroad they
must do something to secure them.
Do the farmers of Cass expect to al
ways haul their prcHi$- Om.h., or
take the Omaha prices less the cost of
hauling? Do they desire to do this ?
The bonds which it is proposed to
issue will be paid years hence, long
after the farmers have made four times
th amount thereof out ef the railroad,
and after the wealth of the county has
increased an. hundred fold in conse
quence of the influx of new capital.
And then again, it is not at all certain
that the tax-payers would ever be called
upon to pay one dollar of them. The
proposition is to take that amount o;
stock, instead of making it a donation;
and ia the event that the stock pays
well, the dividends will go towards li
quidating ihapgd , t
And again, the bonds will not be is
sued unless the road is built, and what
is asked of the people at the present
time is that the county may be author
ized to issue them it it is deemed pru
dent to do 60 when the lime for action
arrives. They cannot, according to the
manner in which the question is sub
mined, be issued fop any other purpose
except to aid in the construction of the
road through this county.
Let every voter in the county, Re
publican, Democrat, Old Line Whig,
or whatever he may be, vote in favor
of issuing these bends, and thus give
the authorities an j opportunity to do
something if it is thought best. If the
opportunity is offereJ and is considered
advantageous to the county, the bonds
would be issued if the people give the
authority. If tbe opportunity is not
offered advantageotsly the bonds would
not be issued, even if they were author-
The Peace Commissioner have held
a conference with the Chiefs of the
principal tribes at North Platte, nd
have returned. They accomplished
nothing, and the pro.-pects are that the
Indian war is no Dearer its termination
than it appeared jt year ago, At the
conference the Tiidians told the Com
missioners plainly that they did not
want peace on any oiher terms than the
abandonment of lines of railroads
through their country, and a supply of
arms and ammunition. Gen. Sher
man's answer was sharp atd explicit.
He said that the railroads must be
built, and that the Indians must not in
terfere with ihe government, ti'r they
would be killed. He supposed that
the road had been agreed upon four
years ago, by the Cheyenues. Mili

Dear Herald: The world is mov
ing, and is again near its aphilion,
when storms and tempests are g ner
ally expected ; but it usually happens
that they terminate in sounds ors. und
and fury, signifying nothing. The
White House resembles the abode of
Vulcan and Bombastes, from which
thundering proclamations are fulmi
nated, and fulsome declarations of de
votion to the Constitution and Union
are issued
The present incumbent considers
himself ai Jupiter Tonans not the
modest individual nor the humble
I plebian but the chief of the Gods.
! He regards Olympus as his birthright,
' and dissenting deities must tremble
I and obey. But he will soon discover
that the hundred fi-ted Bricreas, in the
form of an American Congress, will
hurl him over the battlements into the
Tartarian regions, prepared for the
"devil and his angels." Andrew John
son must and will be impeached and
removed from office. '"His offense is
rank and smells to heaven." He is the
arch enemy of constitutional 'aw and
liberty, and justice should not encum
ber when even mercy calls for ven
geace. Knowing as I do from thin great cen
tre, many important circumstances and
facts in regard to his personal and po
litical habits and designs,- I am justi
fied in saying, that his - desperation
borders on insanity that his counsel
lors are the enemies of the country
and the party that elected him Vice
President, although constituents of the
assassins and their confederates that
made him their President, ihat if be can
change his Cabinet so that hi purposes
may te executed, he will probably at
tempt to disperse or prorogue the Con-!
gress that may strive to remove a ty
rant and madman, and that fainthearts
may quake with fear. But all will be
well ar,i soon oter. General Grant,

ft mn-t b. gratifying to all who feel
nitci.w. vi die subject of education,
that a new era is about to be intro
duced, viz: The establishing of a gra
ded school, which, under the control of
an efficient Principal, will not fail to
prove a great benefit to the children
and youth of our city and vicinity.
There is nne point to which we desire
to call public attention. It i-i the im
portance of introducing the German
language as a branch of study into our
public school. The utility of this must
forcibly strike every reflecting mind,
both of the English as well as the
German portion of our community.
This course has been adopted in many
parts of the country where the Ger
man interests are less prominent than
they are here in the Slate of Nebras
ka. It is also made a branch of study
in many of our oldest institutions in the
land ; and hundreds of students, both
of native and loreign birth avail them
selves of the benefit justly believing
it to be of more real and practical use
than all the Latin and Greek acquired
through an ordinary academic course
The subject is worthy of serious atten
tion, and let those whose prerogative it
is to regulate and control the interests
of the public schools, see to it, that the
most beneficial ends are attained.
