which he immediately did and declared
it carried, the bogus delegates voting
for the motion. No motion was made or
carried that ,Mr. Maxwell should take
his seat, as stated by Mr. Doom. "At
this stage of the proceedings the chair
man pieked up from, the, table a hV-t of
names written out, prepared at the store
beforje coming into the convention, which
Iiq proceeded to read, j Four .of the men
appointed were known by the chairaiau
to be opposed to the admission of the
I'lattsmouth delegates. The committee
having pnjudytd the ,caxe made no at
tempt to arrive at the facts, and reported
in favor of the', bogus delegation ; , the
question then came ; up, before the con
vention on the adoption of the report of
the committee on credentials admitting
the bogus delegation, and they were re
jected by the convention as theyfwould
have been in committee before a Jiiir
committee. The chair made but little if
any attempt to keep order, and a portion
of the, time the confusion ,was so f;rcat
tluit it was diificult to tell what was be
ing done. Our delegation was then re
jected by a majority of one, . J. H.
Brown, not even a bogus delegate, but
acting.witk them, then made a motion
that a half of each delegation be admit
ted, which the chair immediately put and
declared carried, the voting so far as we
could obf-erve being nearly all done by
the bogus delegates. Wheeler, durixg
the noise and disturbance, moved that
Clapp be elected permanent chairman, and
instantly, as though afraid he , would
lose his case, , put the. motion and de
clared it carried the whole thing did not
occupy a quarter of a luiuuto the rot
ing being almost entirely done by the
bogus delegation, as Wheeler well knew
that the convention by a fair vote icould
not elect Clapp as chairman. A large
number of the members were anxious at
this stage to adjourn, as the nominations
if made, would bo a mere farce, at best,
aud a motion was made to that effect by
S. M. Kirkpatrick which the chair re
fused to notice, - declaring it "out of or
der."; Rules for the government of
deliberative bodies are drawn from the
rules of practice of Legislative bodies?
and are adopted to secure fairness, to
protect the rights of uuHoritici- and to
expedite business. Our laws provide,
Rev. Statutes ; page 24J ; Sec. 2, and
4, that "At '1 o'clock in the afternoon of
the day of the meeting of the Legislative
assembly some erson churning to be
elected a member shall call the House to
order to. which he belongs, and tle per
sons present claiming seats in that house
t-hali elect a clerk for the ti mo being ;
Sec . 3 "provides that the clerks
this, elected shall file the certificates
presented by members who thus appear
to be elected- Sea 4 provides . that
when the House is Ahus temporarily or
ganized it shall, elect a committee of
five, who shall examine and report ujou
the credentials of those claiming to be
elected members. Tho object of this is
to secure fairneasand prevent, packiog.
and the fact that . a ; party's scat is con
gested when he has. a lawful certificate,
does not prevent , him from acting as a
member until ousted. We have evi
dence establishing the. fact that there
was an arrangement between a few indi
Yidaahi to take possession of the con
vention, to this end J. K. Dool'i and
others in the-arrangemect; circulated re
ports to excite' the feelings of the com
munity, conveying the idea that the
Plattsmouth delegation were pledged to
support the old county officers, which re
ports were rcithoutmnj foundation', other
stories of like ' import were circulated
with like - intent. Mrl " Doom is) ' well
aware that " he " and W. " C. Jenks
and James Simpson, candidate ' for
Couuty Commissioner,' (the' last two
were members of the Committee on
Credertials) had declared their in
tention, before the meeting of th Con
vention, of opposing the admisnion of
the Plattmouth lclegation, and that
was the main reason why they w re se
lected by the Chair,' the convention
was not the : voice of the Republicans of
Cass county. Anv lawfullv elected mem-
ler, even if his scat is contestetL, has a
right to make 'a motion or nominate a

the Convention and not the individual

The-whole proceedings wctk character

The whole thing is a fraud aud out

which a dozen men could assemble in the
office of a hotel without notice, and then

. (jF.xtlemen: Agreeable to your in
structions for making an examination of
the coal measures near Plattsmouth, I
take pleasure in giving you a concise sy
noposis of my preliminary examinations
of that locality, together with an opinion
as to the existence of coal veins in suffi
cient paying strata. .
I left Omaha, Wed neslay forenoon,
September 29th, reached Plattsmouth at
7 p. m. On the 30th I visited your
mine about three-fourths of a mile in a
southerly direction and on the embank
ment of the Missouri river, from Platts
mouth. ; The opening of your coal bed,
as re presented herein, is about ;y feet
from the river, and alout 30 feet from
the surface. The embankment is nearly
20 degrees from a perpendicular line
westward. The opening of the seams as
shown herein, exhibit from five tw six
well developed and compact bituminous
shale, which on the exterior -surface
varv from one to two inches in thickness,
' The adit or exploring drifts which is
now in about 22 or 23 feet, and running
with the coal bed, show that these meas
ures increase in thickness, as chown by
the following illustration : -
Here follows an illustration of the
mouth of the drift
Tlie several layers of bituminous shale
are lateral deposits, dipping - about 15
degrees; the upjier layer appears to be a
detritous; then follows a strata of calca
reous limestone. The intereallations arc
deposit of grit, sand and limestone The
lower beds under the bituminous
strata appear to be red clay and soft
white lime stone. The . specimens of
coal now in my possession, marked Nos.
1 , 2 and three, were taken from various
jHjrtions of the drift No 3 measuring
in thickness about two inchos, which
fact is higlily encouraging, and that as
explorations are contiuued a constant in
crease may be anticipated. The whole
series of bituminous shale and intereal
lations measure 2 feet and 10 inches, or
nearly 3 feet. Tho bituminous shale
may bo traced for miles along the em
bankment of the river. The upheavals
are extensive, and rise to a hight of from
150 to 250 feet above the river's surface.
1 have had scarcely time to make a mi
nute examination of the paUeontological
remains; suffice to say that Professors
Newberry, Hayden, Capellini, Heer and
Merk have established that this vicinity
lias a well defined carboniferous iieriod,
but wnich lieloiigs, probably to the tertian-
or past nleiosene era."
The several shafts sunk by your super
intendent west of tlie strata, are in my
opinion a useless expenditure of money;
while an adit six foot high and three
feet wide, would have accomplished
much simmer a proper development of
your coal nieasui-'.
1 have iusirueted your superintendent
to continue the exploration of the adit
first pierced into the coal strata, particu
larly hi. since tin; indications have ter
minated so favorably; should,' however,
the deposit become extinct, of which I
entertain no possibility, he shall open an
adit at a lower point along the embank
ment. I opine the coal measures will
increase with every foot of excavation in
to the strata.
I regard the dcvclopement of these
coal veins which are so eligibly located
in this market, as one of the greatest
auxiliaries to our young State's resour
ces. The character of the coal thus far ex
tracted is of a highly bituminous naturc,
entirely free from sulphur or foreign ele
ments. I would srladlv furnish vou with
a complete analysis of t he coal, but must
forego that privilege, since I am looking
daily for an analytical apparatus for the
proper examination of coal ami minerals
which I have sent for. '
Believing that the enterprise of coal
mining in Nebraska, and your mine in
Plattsmouth, will be one of success, I
trust that the above brief remarks will
be acceptable to you, as I am . sincere in
my assertions.
I am. very respectfully,
' Your obedient servant,

Government bonds decline two or three
percent, arid a fall:. in. 'stocks, ranging
from five to teu per cent. Moreover,the
speculation in gold has so deranged the
foreign exchanges that sterling bills have
fallen very far below iiar, which has act
ed as a severe obstruction to the export
trade of the country. These derange
ments have also produced timidity among
money lenders to such an extent that the
late prosecutions for violations of the
usury laws have been wholly forgotten,
aud borrowers upon stocks, wanting funds,
have been mulcted 1, J, and even 11 per
cent, for the use of money for a single
daj. Indeed, many commercial borrow
ers have found it almost impossible to
get their paper discounted, even at the
extraordinary rate of twelve per cent

Well may the country stind in amaze,

"Are we going t tWe East for bur

we can purchase tjlc new material as
cheap or cheaper than our neighbors,
and when we can raise food .enough for
the sustenance of millions of human be
ings form our fertile soil? And the same
may be said .of our wool. Shall we send
it through a dozen, hands to - Europe to
be manufactured, and each take a profit
when, we have streams idle that would
turn our spindles, and millions of tons of
coal, waiting in the Rocky Mountiins to
drive our steam engines? Shall we send
our hides from mountain districts to the
Atlantic coast, , to be tanned and man
ufactured, when we have only to trans
port the material for tanning; and our
own population, who ought to subsist in
this fertile country much more cheaply
than iir the East, manufacture them for
home consumption ? The questions can
be multiplied indefinitely, and they are
grave questions which must le fairly met,
and in which even' fanner I address to
day is interested. The wealthy of the
State, the success ef the community, and
the value of his own individuali property,
are all affected by these results. Give
Nebraska City, for instance, any of
these manufacturing advantages, and
how rapidly would the value of real
estate advance li this vicinity. And we
must not think these things are very
distant they are at our very doors.

and in analyzing the soil, we find in dig

Mark Twain witnessed seme of the
"Old Masters" in Milan, one of whose
pieces, "The Last Supper," by Leonardo
de Vinciy has long" been celebrated by;
travelers, poets, and artists, but never
pictured so well as in this wise ;
Th)sj)icturc is about thirty. feet long,
and ten or twelve feet high, I - should
think, and the figures are at least life
fho. It "is one of the largest ir Europe.
The colors are dimmed with age ; the
countenances are scaled and marred, and
nearly all expresion is goue from them ;
the hair is a dead blur upon the wall,
and there is no life in tho eyes.. Only
the atitudos ere certain.
People come here from all parte of tin:
world, and glorify this masterpiece.
They stand entranced before it with bated
breath and parted lips, and when they
speak, it is only in the catching ejacula
tion of raptures.
"O, wonderful !"
"Such expression !''
"Such grace of attitude !"
"Such dignity ! "
"Such faultless drawing 1"
"Such matchless coloring !"
"Such feeling!"
"What delicacy of touch !"
"What sublimity" of conception 1"
A vision ! vision !
1 only envy these people j I envy them
their honest admiration, if it le honest
their delight, if they feel delight I
harlor no animosity toward them. 'But
at the same time the tlought will intrude
itself ujon me.
How can they see what is not visible?
What would you think of a man who
looked at some decayed, blind, toothless,
jRK-k marked Cleopatra, and said :
"What matchless beauty ! What soul !
What expression 1 What would you think
of a man who gazed upon a dingy, foggy
sunset, and said; "What sublimity !
What feeling! richness of coloring!
What would you think of a man who
started in ecstacy upon a desert of stumps
and said: "Oh my soul, i mv beating
heart, what a noble forest is here 1"
