PLATTS M OUTH. NEBRASKA.
THURSDAY JULY 16, 1869.
What has become of the man with the
white (nothing personal meant) mule
who had a "contract" on the Midland
road ? Is he waiting for the "President"
of the Company to "get tome" before
ho resumes operatio ns?
The people of Omaha know how to
go to work to build up a city, and they
know that a first class hotel building is
one of the first things to be looked after.
The people of that city are now ofier
. ing $15,000 bonus for the building of a
first class hotel. What will the people
of riattsniouth do toward the erection of
a good building here ?
From all parts of the west we learn of
an extraordinary prospect for crops, with
the constant fear that they may yet be
seriously damaged by the wet weather.
We are inclined to the belief that wheat
will be injured to a greater extent than
farmers generally look for. If the wet
weather continues grain must be greatly
injured, even after it is cut.
1,000,000 BI SHKLS.
Cass county will produce nearly or
quite one minion bushels of surplus
wheat this season at least 'that is the
estimate of some of our dealers and
heavy farmers. This at $1.00 per bush
el would bring the neat some of $1,000,
000 in cash into Cass county for wheat
olone,which is equal to one-half the entire
valuation of the taxable property in the
county at the last assessment.
THE BROWXVILLE PEOPLE
Are feeling exceedingly jubilant over
their prospect: for a railroad, and it looks
like they had occasion therefor. One of
their prominent citizens Judge Morgan
has been elected a director in the
Quiney and Nebraska Railroad company,
and the company have decided to make
an immediate survey of the first ten
miles west from Brown villi?. The Ham
burgers are also working with Brown
ville on another road. Enterprise will
THE PROPERTY OWJI ERN
Of Plattsniouth must bear in mind that
it is only by unceasing efforts and untir
ing energy that any city can be placed
upon an independent footing, and es
pecially one that bas as much to contend
with as Plattsmouth has. We have now
eecured the one great thing that all have
been waiting and laboring for the B. &
M. R. R. and now attention should be
turned to the next most important thing,
and. what is it? In our opinion, the
next important move for 'Plattsmouth is
to supply houseroom for those who come
to our city. There is a woeful lack of
houses, and there appears to be a lack
of energy to build them. We tell you,
you musi duuu tnesc very necessary ar
ticles to any city, or else you must never
expect to assume the importance that all
hope we may. Do not wait for strangers
to come in and set 3-ou the example, for
they will be slow to do it if they see no
spirit of enterprise among the men who
hold the real estate. There is one thing
as certain as fate, and that is that the
real estate owners of this city must erect
houses, or let those who will erect them
have the ground at a low figure, or else
they must make up their minds to have
a slow going town and to see others go
ahead of them. We dislike to sjieak
thus plainly, but the exigencies of the
case demand plain talk, and we do not
propose to shrink from the duty we owe
the community. We believe every man
of sense in the city will agree with us
that one of these three things must 'be,
and the question is, which will it be ?
Will the present owners of real estate
build houses, or will they sell at low
figures to those who will build them, or
will they allow the city to take its
chances ? We shall see. .
Ill SI MISS
Is better in Plattsmouth to-day than it
has been since 1865, so say the men who
are selling goods. This speaks well,
when wo take into consideration the fact
that this is usually the dullest season of
the whole year when farmers are busy
with their crops, and only come to town
for actual necessities. It is the natural
increase incident to the commencement
ofworkonthe railroad. Business will
increase from this day henceforward.
We need twenty-five new business houses
erected this summer.
,T1IE Foi'RTII AT FOl'K MILE.
Wc neglected making mention last week
of the fact that the Fourth was celebrated
at Four Mile, waiting for some of our
friends in that locality to send us the
particulars. We learn that the celebra
tion was well' attended, and that Hon
T. M. Marquett gave one of his offhand
talks, which was fur superior to most of
the spread eagle orations, in this, that
it contained a host of ideas set in home
ly phrase, while many Fourth of July
orations contain "only words. Our Four
Mile friends know just how to manage a
genuine Indejiendence celebration
Dr. A. L. Chill, of Glendale, lias giv
en us tho opportunity of examining a
newspaper published at Windsor, Ver
mont, in the year 1806. It was called
the Post Boy, probably in honor of the
most exjteditiou.s manner of obtaining
news in that day. It has sixteen pages
of three columns each, and is printed on
paper little bettor than ordinary wrapping
paper of the present day. Among oth
er novel things, we find tho identical ad
vertisemcnt of Thos. O. Selfridge, where
he posted Benjamin Austin, whose son
lie afterwards shot, and whieh case has
become one of the standard authorities
f the day.
RF. OXSTRI CTIOX TEST,
James M. Carlisle and Philip Phillips
presented to C hief Justice Chase, on last
Monday, the 12th inst., a petition of
CoL L. M. 1 erger, now on trialbefor a
military commission in Mississippi, for
the murder of CoL Crane, praying for a
writ of habeas corpus to take him from
the custody of the military commission.
The petition is in the usual form. Chief
Justice Chase received the application
and fixed Wednesday morning as the
time for hearing. Attorney General
Hoar will represent the interests of the
Government at the heariug. The
pomi 10 dc aetemimed is whether so prises lias always

The Chronicle says "The Plattsmouth
Herald is assisting the enimies of the
Midland Pacific in circulating false re
ports," and then cites the item wherein
we said the Company would receive an
other $150, (XX) in bonds from Otoe coun
ty. Is this a ' false report?" If the
Company does "not ask any further
aid," as the Chronicle asserts, and the
people do not propose to give any fur
ther aid, then we have been misled
probably by designing parties. The
Lincoln Journal of the 3d, says "Ne
braska City is generously coming for
ward with further aid." Is the Jour
ual one of the "enimies" re
ferred to by the Chronicle? We had
supposed it was the friend of the Mid
land. If our Nebraska City friends
would be more honest with themselves,
people would have far better facilities
for knowing how matters ftood or is it
a part of the programme to mistify every
thing in connection with the raitrxfcd in
terests of Nebraska City. No man can
tell, by reading the paiiers of Nebraska
City, anything about railroad matters.
One day we are told that a contract is
made with the Pennsylvania Central for
completing the Midland road. The next
day it is with Dr. Converse or some other
man, and then comes the announcement
that there is no contract let, but that
men are examining the line to see what
they cau afford to do about it One day
we are told the contract is let to complete
the road by the 1st of May 1870; the
next day we are told it is to be done by
January 1st, 1870. The story has been
told and contradicted as many as twenty
five different times, by Nebraska City
papers, that tfre contract for iron was al
ready made, and that work would be
commenced within a given time, etc.
ho is responsible for "false reports
about the Midland Pacific (Jompany.
As we have constantly said, we have the
friendliest feelings toward Nebraska Oitv
ana ner railroad interests, also toward
the members of the Midland Company,
but if the newspapers of Nebraska Citv
are to be believed, the Midland Compa
ny is worse than the "Flving Dutch
man;" for it makes more contracts and
does less work than all the Railroad
Couipanios in the United State that is
according to the aforesaid papers. The
Midland Company would stind in for a
better repute if the papers of Nebraska
City would not attempt to give it an ar
tificial life nvhich it does not possess in
reality. If you have a "contract," give
us the contract itself, not a bare asser
tion by the papers, no two of which
agree. IF this were do ie there would
be less "false reports" and probably
less railroad excitement.

Editor Herald : It may be intesfc-

what manner the people of Seward coun

day was selected as the day. The morn
ing dawned with a tender, hazy bright
ness, which bid fair for the pleasures of
the day. The raising of the Liberty pole
on the public square and hoisting the
flag (presented by the ladies of Milford)
inaugurated the exercises. Three rous

it floated ont on the breeze the first

men of oats, the stalk of which measured
five feet three inches, and the head, of
well filled grain, twelve inches long.
Mr. Bray has twenty acres of this grain,
which we have no doubt will yield 90 to
103 bushels per acre.
We never saw a better prospect for
crops anywhere, or during any former
season. If nothing injures the wheat.
its yield will average at least, all over the
county, twenty-five or thirty bushels to
the acre. We belive that the crasshoD-

corn in this county in fact, there are
none hefc. The surplus grain raised this
year will more than equal the defiicit last
Mr. J. T. Brady, a well known citizen,
gives the facts of a remarkable increase
of cattle herded on our rich prairie grass.
He in conjunction with Mr. Ira Collins,
put upon grass on the 5th of May 225
head of three-year old, weighing them
at the time. On the 5th of June they
were again weighed, and the increase in
the month was found to be 174 J lbs. per
head, or 5 4-5 per day. The increase of
the herd -of 225, amounted to about 39-
262 lbs. of beef, which we think cannot
be beaten upon any grass, wild or tame,
in any part of our great country.

very small surplus to lap over into the
consumption of the crops of 1869. The
f;reatest deficiency will be in corn. The

crops of 18C9 are more abundant than
those of any year during the past decade,
unless the present condition ofthincsis
spoiled by continued rain. Most people
exiect a dry time during the later part
of the present summer and the coming
autumn, and the expectation is fully
justified b.v the law of sequences. The
question of prices is a ' vcrv important
one in connection with the yield. With
so much of uncertainty in regard to the
harvest weather, nothing can be pre
dicted, but it does not seem probable
that we shall soon return to the high
prices paid for breadstuff's during 1S(7

The Supreme Court of the State of
Nebraka has been m session m Lincoln
during the past week. A full quorum
of justices were presentj and several very
important cases were tried. Among the
. . . ii
xiiom, important cases Which came up
was one involving the ownership of
Laldwell Uloek, Omaha. It seems that
some years ago the owner of the ground
on which the block stands mortgaged it
for two thousand dollars. The mortgage
was sold several times, passing through
some half a dozen different hands. At
last it was foreclosed, and the ground
was bought at Sheriff sale bv Mr. Ilell
man and Mr. Finn, Lorain Miller,
Esq., about the same time became the
assignee of certain judgments against the
original owner of the lots, which consti
tuted a lien upon the property. He was
not made a party to the suit when the
mortgage was foreclosed, and now he
offers to pay off the mortgage and take
the property, and we understand that in
law he has the right to do so. The case
could not be heard in the Supreme Court
this session, because Judge Iake has
acted as attorney in the lower court when
it was before tried. Both these gentle
men are barred by the Constitution, in
consequence of these facts, from 'sitting
in judgment upon the case now -in the
Supreme Court, and it will have to ho
over until the judiciary is thanired. If
M r. Miller is successful he will have to
pay about two thousand dollars, and will
get a property worth not less than one
hundred thousand. JW.sx.
