Secretary John A. Rawlins died at
twelve minutes past 4 o'clock yesterday
(Monday) evening. He was Fiirrounded
by a large number of friends at the time
of hia death, who mourn his loss in com

long been the confidential friend of Pre
sident Grant.
of the late Secretary of State, John A.
Rawlins, will take place to-day
(Thursday). All public places of busi

His death wan the result of the exo.rire
and hardships endured in the war.
In the Legislature from this county or
district, or not? The Commissioners
will probably order an election at their
next session, and they should have offi

to fill on the Legislative ticket.

the purpose of keeping the wheat from

down and make a nice comfortable over

blowing out and freezing out. There is
reason in it. Try it.

before leaving. Look out forlively times
Parties lately from the cast assure us
that Plattsmouth is becoming known
throughout the cast as the rising town
on the Missouri river, and the one likely
to eclipse all others. The ieoplc of the
east, who know the Ti. & M. R. R. Co.
in Nebraska, their connections, interests
and intentions, know that this route is
soon to be the leading one across the
continent, hence the certainty of our
future. -Ct
Of the seasons, etc, published in tabular
form in another column, compiled by
Dr. A. L. Child, is one of the best ev
idences of what Nebraska is that could
possibly be given. The Dr. has been a
regular reporter for the Smithsonian In
stitute during the time embraced in the
table, and every figure given, whether
" it tells for or against the State, can be
relied upon as strictly correct.
The Cass County Republican Commit
tee have leen requested to meetintlu3
eity on Saturday next,and it is hoped that
CO member will be absent It is generally
known that an effort has been made,
and is still making, to create discord in
the ranks of the party. This should be
frowned down by every true man, because
it does no good, and can only result in
evil to all concerned. Let us have a full
turn out of the members of the County
Committee,and we would also suggestjihe
propriety of active men in the party from
each precinct, aside from members of the
commitee, being present and consulting
as to the best interests of the party.
Let a free talk be indulged in, and we
have no doubt all differences of opinion
among Republicans in this county can be
at once set right wo might almost say
we know it, for Republicans are always
reasonable men. We hope no wedge
driving, trouble-breeding councils will be
heeded, but that we will have a general
torn out of the committco and friends
generally next Saturday.
To come to Nebraska has been the theme
for many a discussion, and nearly every
newspaper in the State has given an
opinion as to that time. We beg to add
our opinion, and say come just as soon as
you can get ready. Do not wait for the
Seasons, the Signs or the Moon, but
come right along, aad bring your family.
Time was when it was judicious to come
at certain seasons of year, because only
at certain seasons could men make a
proper commencement so as to avoid
heavy outlay for living until harvest
But Nebraska is fast becoming like older
settled States, and the immigrant can
find remunerative employment at any
and all seasons of the year. Then we
say, the best time to come to Nebraska
is as soon as you can, and the quicker
the better. Come by boat, by rail, by
stage, by wagon, on foot anyway to get
here and get a ttart while property can
be had cheap and while there is yet va
cant lands t9 homestead and pre-empt.
Stand not upon the ordeT of your coming,
rai ccmc.

We made the statenuunt a few weeks
since that there was either ''Unpardon

the part of some ow in connection v. ith
the laws of the ?t scs -ioi. The Lin

tempts to ridicule the idoa, but dares not
deny the fact, although it would like to
do so. We wish it could consistently
deny that such was the case; but we fear
it cannot be The Journal is compelled
to admiti as it does very reluctantly,
that some of the laws as printed vary
materially from the laws as passed, and
lays the biame on the "over driven
clerks." The Journal says:
4 'In the laws as printed, there art; a
few jrlaritig blunders, which can be
traced, a. we are ready to testify from
ocular demonstration, to the Mips oi the
pen made by over driven clerks in pre
paring bills for their f.nal passage.
It then proceeds to give sevt-ral of
these "glaring blunders," ad adds :
"There can be no doubt that th-j biUs

So far our efforts to ferret out theM?
"glaring blunders" (we termed it "un
pardonable rascality or gross negli
gence") have met with tue success of
bruizing out thv Journal, and it attempts
to fasten the thing on the "over diircn
clerks. V Pos-ibly this solution is cor
rect. If any one knows to the contrary,
lot him ppcak. The Jovial then r s
fer to' the fact of our charging the pub
lication of the bills not passed and jf the
non-publication of laws passed. It dans
not deny the truth of our statement, for
the editor knows full well that wc state
truth ; but attempts to be somewhat fa
cetious over the matter, and says :
"If the IleraM daro specify v.;hi;t
"some bills" are, or what "the law re
ferred to" is, let us know it.
"W'c intend to pcrs-st in our qu::tion

this unpardonaulc ra.;ality, . 31 r.
The Herald dare sjeciry the Sedion
Line Road Bill and the bill for a Herd
Law as ''some bills" that are published
as laws that never passed, anil "d.iie
further specify that the editor of the
Journal knows our statement to b-J cor
rect if he only had the honesty of pur
pose to acknowledge it. The Herald
"dare" further specify that his Honor.
Gov. Butler, knew, while the bill was
still in his pos-ession, that the section
lino road bill wa indefinitely posponed
in the House, ami never passed that bo
dy, for the editor of the Herald was
present when Chief Clerk Bowen ix
bitcd. the journals of the House m the
Executive presence, showing the vote
by which the bill was indefinitely jwst
Ioned; and yet this bill appears among
the published laws. The HeraiD 'dare'
further specify, as "the law reforcd to"
which passed and does not f.ppear a n ong
th published Inws, the Act entitled 'An
i'A'.-t to iho Rights of Occupying
Claimants," which was passed by both
Houses of the Legislature and reported
signed by the Governor. Does the
Journal pretend to-deny the above facts,
or will it endeavor to cast the blame upon
"over driven clerk?" Have we been
sufficiently specific to tint the defender
of an incorrect public ation of laws. How
about the "no-doubt the bills as ordered,
to their third reading were correct."
Do not the original bills show whether or
not they were correct, or have the origi
nul bills disayi eared. also? Will tho
Journal please explain.
The Little Blue is casting about to see
what is the best route to advocate for the
building of a Railroad to accommodate
the section of country in which it is inter
ested. We invite its attention r,o the
route which wc have heretofore men
tioned, starting'out from the 15. & M.
from either Lincoln or its crossing of the
Big Blue river, and runaing thene i in a
Southerly direction, probably by way cf
Jenkin's Mills. ' We are not sufficiently
acquainted with the country below to
ray exactly what route would be prefer-,
able, but leave that to be decided by
those better aiquaintod. Probably our
friend of the Little Blu? could give uj
valuable information on this subject . S
far as the building of a road in a South
westerly direction from any town on the
river' is concerned, it will become a very
difficult matter in consequence of the
course of the streams they would all
have to be crossed at nearly right angles,
while a road from either Lincoln or a
point on the Big Blue could be ruri
Southward and follow n water couire
nio.--tofthc way. The road from Brown
villc west could probably be built easier
than anyx other from the river direct to
Jenkin's Mills, but the same objection
applies to some extent to that route as
the others; yet we look upon that route
as fairly probable at no distant day. Bat
the route we mention is available and
practicable tn, from the fact that it
will connect direct with the outside world
via the B. & M. through this city, and
the Southern Branch Pacific at the other
end of the route. The route "is the ea
siest one we know of, and we htpe the
people of the Blue river countries will
look at the matter, in the light of bus
iness and give such encouragement
to an enterprise of this kind as its iui-
portance demands. Take the Eiap and
examine the route, take into considera
tion the grades, fertility of the country
through which it will pass, the powerful
railroad interests with which it would
connect and which would naturally be in
clined to favor it, and see if it ca nnot be
accomplished easier than any other IL R.
enterprise to the interior. Will our fi ie nd
of the Little lilne consider this, matter
and let us hear from him?
A girl named Joanna Nichols, aged
about 14 years, was arrested in Louis
ville precinct, in this county,; last Satur
day, on a charge of grand larceny, for
having stolen the sum of $90 in cash
from Alexander Schlagcl, at whose house
she was living. She was brought before i is
tice Child, plead guilty, and was brought
tothiseitiy and lodged in jail t await
t:Ll at th'j M'-xt term of the District
Coutt She has lived in Mr. Schiaele's
fainHy for some time, and has been de
tected several times in stealing small
sums of money, and valuable articles,
but this is the first time she has lieen
detected in stealing any considerable
amount. Only about $15 of the money
was recovered. . COl'XTT BOSBS.
A' "proposition has been submitted to
t.he jxrophi of Seward county to vote for
or against issuing their county bonds to
HA-ist in the building of the M. P. road.
It stands the people of Seward county
in hand to look their Railroad prospects
square in the face, and act wisely.
They should remember that the B. &
M. R. R. is fast approaching them, and
that it would he an uuwise thing for
them to bind themselves in such hhape ,
to any particular line of road that they
would be unable to render assistance to ;
another inc provided the road in whose ;
favor the bonds were voted, failed to
build and the other one stood ready to
build if the necessary aid wci e extended.
Or, in other words, it would be injudi
cious for the people of Seward county to
so bind themselves up by a vote
in favor of bonds to aid the M.
P. road that they could not help the B.
& M. R. R. in Nebraska should it ask
help from them, and the M. P. road
should not be ready to build. It would
leave the people of Seward in bad share
if the M. P. folks should get them to
bound up that aid could be rendered to
no other road, aiA th,;n the M. P.
should delay building for.i series of year?.
It is a railroad the people of Seward
want, and of course they care but little
who builds it so they get one with good
eastern connectk us. We say, then, beware
of getting yourselves into the condition
we speak of.
We occasionally hear of a man who
thinks improvements are not going ahead
as rapidly as they should in our city.
Don't be in too big a hurry, gentlemen ;
we are improving as rapidly as is nec
essary. Omaha scarcely went ahead at
ail during the first year of work on the
railroad west, but everything had to stand
from under during the next three years.
So it will be here. Improvements hero
are not as extensive this season as some
expected, and tha reasons are obvious.
The old residents of the town had but
little ready money with which to build,
and did not wish to sacrifice property
that they had hold for years awaiting a
time when they could make something
out of it, and of course ve could not
expect strangers to take hold at once and
improve our city. Next year will show
a different state of affairs.
Mr. Tichnor says he was not made
acquainted with the contents prior to its
publication of the letter from this city
which statod that the writer had seen a
fin, fuot vein of cam i. :I eral, else hel. lid
have protested against its publication.
Tichnor still asserts that he thinks coal,
in paying quantities, can be found here.
We hope it may, but arc opposed to hav
ing such letters as "J. uV. P." sent to
tho Omaha Herald pass uncontradicted.
We arc willing to give any coal prospects
in Nebraska all the favorable coloring
they will bear but must invariably enter
our protot agains wholesale misrepre
sentation in regard to them. The time
may cotuti as we have faith it will, at
no distant day when coal in paying
quantities will be found somewhere in
Nebraska; and if we allow gross misrep
rcsontattions to go uncontradicted now,
vre will hardly be able to. get men to in
vest their money when the indications
are good and the- inviii-tmeut is needed.
Wo w::-h tin; fondest hopes of Messrs.
Ticheiior & Co. may 1 e realized, and
will re pott .'ri!g!Cs, whether favorable
or unfavorable.

In Nebraska, has heretofore leen a
question cf no small interest to the peo
ple of this Suite, but this season has
pretty well determined the question in
the affirmative. Lee Wright, Esq.,
brought to the Herald office yesterday
specimens of nine different varieties of
fall antl winter apples, which will equal
anything produced in the older fruit
growing States ; also specimens of the
yellow Siberian crab, the Catawba, Con
cord and Delaware grape, which make
one.think of the old Mission vineyards
of California. We weighed and measured
a specimen of each of the fall and winter
varieties of apples, and found the whiter
apple measured 13 inches in circumfer
ence, and weighed 15 ounces, and the
fall specimen (which was ripe and mel
low) measured 12 J inches and weighed
11 ounces. There were twenty apples
in the lot, and we never saw a finer col
lection in the State. Mr. Wright has
three acres in fruit, embracing several
different varieties of grajes,Vipples, etc.,
besides pears, peaches, plums, apricots,
and in fact nearly every kind of fruit
raised in this latitude. lie should take
specimens u the State Fair. The size
and quality of fruit woul 1 not, probably,
be considered anything extraordinary
back east, but it docs one thing for us
here that is of vast importance, it dem
onstrates the fact that all kinds of fruit
raised in this latitude can be successfully
raised in Nebraska, if we only get hold
'of the right varieties, suited to the cli-.
mate, and then manage them properly.
Mr. Wright's success in thus line is a
triumph in which all fruit growers of the
State will rejoice.

KuRorEAx Emigration A;en'ct, 1
Omaha, Sept, 3, lsf,9. j
To the Editor of the Plattmnnuth Herald:
De.vb SiR--Tlie total number of pau
pers in London, England, during 169 is
129,2iS, and the question arises in a
very serious way, what is to remedy the
growing evil. The pauper population
increases at the rate of 1 0.000 per annum
and the poor hardworking man who
prays for the prairie to break in the Uni
ted States, is still shown the workhouse
stone j-ards, and before each meal he has
to break a certain quantity of stone.
More than one half the paupers are
honest, hard working men, driven as the
last resort to apply to the Parish for re
lief. A conference has been held in London
(Lord A. Churchill taking the chair) to
consider by what means the present state
of affairs could be remedied. It was
there stated that for every 2J persons in
the metroiolis, there was one pauper.
The amount at present paid annually is
1,200,000 to maintain the poor in Lon
don alone.
Emigration is the only relief f jr this
growing cviL A metropolitan rate has
been nroposea, or even, u necessary, im
perial taxation.

your State really regards the hard work-J

Plymouth, Pa. Sept. fi.
A fire broke out this morning in the
flue ami bottom of Steuben shaft, owned
by the DeLuvcre, Lackawanna and West
ern company, in this pluce. and in a short
time the whole breaker an 1 out buildings
were in flames, and the hoisting appara
tus, the only avenue for escape of the
miners dlstroyed. All efforts to stay the
flames were unavailing, aixl tlie whole
structure fell filling the shaft, Over 200
men were in the sh;.lt with no chance
for air. It is feared that the whole num
ber have been suffocated,
Pi.YMoTir, Pa., Sept. C 10 p, m.
After the rubbish from the bottom of
the shaft was cleared away, two miners
doconded in a bucket, and sent word up
to send down a r ick and shovel to clear
the door with. The bucket was brought
up and two men started down with the
tools. As they started the men at the
bottom raqucsted them to hum; and
on their reaching the bottom both men
were found dead. No hopes are enter
tained for the men in the shaft, they are
supposed to have perished. The black
damp is very bad here.

course, can bo nu: Ie to reach the main

There is really no ground to lit-i. e
