We learn that the Hon. John Helman
got a little too much "Platform" aboard
on election day, stopped at the polls in
Salt Creek precinct in this county, and
commenced anunproroked tirade ofabuse
neainst Mr. James Waters, Registrar for
that Treci net. Mr. Watert stood his
abuse for a long time, but finally conclu
ded ihere was a point "beyond which for
bearance ceases to be a virtue," He was
about to try the "tanning" process upon
Mr. Helman, but that gentle man concl J
ded discretion was the better part of val
or and decamped. We have known Mr
Waters for several years, and know him
to be a peaceable, quiet citizen, but we
also can assure Mr. Helman, "or any
other man" they are "barking up the
wronj; tree'' when they suppose he will
it quietly and receive unprovoked abuse
merelycause he-ii a Republican, We
apprehend Helman won't try to "bully"
Waters again in a hurry.

Mr. Bissel, who lires on the Waboo,r
cently sold a drove of 2 and 3 year old
steers which beat anything we have yet
heard of. The lightest 2 year old out
of 20 old weighed 900 pounds, and they
ranged from that to 1.200 pounds. The
lightest 3 year old weighed 1,100 pounds,
and ranged from that to 1,590 pounds.
These Cgures were given us by a gentle
man who saw them weighed Who can
beat it? These cattle had not tasted
corn or other grain, but lived exclusively
on the rich prairie grass of Wahoo Val
ley. Mr. Bissel also raised 46 bushels of
wheat and 80 buh.ls of corn to the acre

The Morning 1'lrlieian. the nw daily
paper started in Nebraska City about two
months ago, is fast giining prominence
among the leading journals of the West.
It is eminently sound on all political sub
jects, devotes considerable space to State
and local news,andwhat makes it partitu
1 aily valuable is the fact that it publishes
complete telegrarh news, and is the only
paper kouth of the Platte in Nebraska
which docs in fact, we think the Plebeian
has fuller and later dispatches, thin any
other paper in the State. It is pubbaed
in the morning, nnd arrives at Platts
mouth the same day at noon.
Sheriff Johnson has nailed the last of
the organized band of horse thieves, who
have infested this part of the country so
long; or, at least, the last one whose came
was made pnblic. He arrived from Ne
braska City last Monday with Charles
Walker, who is said to be the head cen
:ra of the organization in Nebraska, and
now has him safe'y lodged in jail with a
good set of '-bracelets'' rii ltd on
Johnson has been after this man for the
past two months, and has come near nab- ,
bing him several t ines. W alser wr.s gen
erally among frien Is, who wou'd warn
him of th1? ShriCT's approach, but this time
he was caught "napping " Sheriff John
son recived a telegram last Friday from
one of his agents in Nebraska City that
Walker had made his appearanoo io the
country, ar.d Johnson immediately tele
graphed Sheriff Moore, of Ot cun'r,
to pick him up. He was found about sev
"n mIe" helow Nebraska City, just re; d
to leave the country ugain. He brought
out his revjlver and told Sheriff Moore be
would die bffor he would surrenler and
he taken to Cass County, and n!y sur
rendered when mads to b.lieve he would
be tried in Otoe. As we said before, the
arrest of Walker pretty effectually bieuEs
up the band. It will be remembered thut
the mm Potts, alius Young, testified thn t
Walker, Frank Ward aud himself ti ok
the three horses from ths southern part of
this County. FranE Ward is believed to
have been hung by the Vigilantes iu Kan
is. Qaorge Ward who ws held to
bail hns left the country. Tot's has
left f r parts unknown. Vn-ent wa
called for by a Sheriff from Iowa. Har
rison was set at liberty and left the coun
try. Wishart was cleared for want of ev
idence, Allmson is out on bail of $1000,
and now the ring leader, Walker, is
caught and will probably lay in jail un
til Court sit?.
From the very commencement Sheriff
Johnson manifested a determimton to
breai up this bind, anl iri think he has
done it most effectually. He is a terror
to evil doers; and when he once get9 after
them they might as well give up at once,
for he never leaves the track until the
game is holed.

ed to me will please call and pay up im
