here that the people in Cass will not
need to be told, scarcely, that the. com
ments of the Omaha Herald are plain,
naked lies :

The people of this county will be glad
to learn that Tom. Kennard owns the
State Journal, and from a seven yeors'
knowledge of II. D. Hathaway, they
will be likely to. believe that he is the
kind of ma'n to be tacked on as an ap
nndaTfi to aav otliPr nerson in the
I o -
State. Knowing Hathaway, as they do,
and knowing his financial condition, and
all, they will be very likely to believe
that he does not own an interest in the
Journal. Observe the meanness of the
last fling "Tom. Kennard a Grant Sec
retary of State." Mr. Kennard was
elected Secretary of State in Nebraska
before Grant was thoueht of for Preti
Frsmont Tribune Newt. Hays left
this town poor, and by his own energy
and perseverance, built up and made a
bu.-incss in Fremont, and put the Trib
une on a good, sound paying basis, long
before his bad health induced him to
take a surveyor's contract and he al
ways knew enough to make it pretty hot

B'air Time Kiely is a fugitive from
justice in Canada he never owned a
dollar in the Timet, and the owner of
the limes, V. G. Lantry, was a bitter
enemy of Iviely's, and aided as much as
any other man in having Kiely brought
to justice. The circulation of the Times
is as larg3 as that of any weekly paper
except. one, in the State, and a (rent
tfe il larger than the xcctlrfy list of the
Omaha Herald. It has the best paying
list in the State, perhaps, and is alto

That the Schuyler Register has only
55 subscriber any one mty believe that
likes. There is a paper closer home that
floats Greeley at the head, whose "sub.
list" is very diminutive, and yet we will
credit it with over 55. Do tell the truth
once, Mr. Herald.
Of the two last Darned, the Press is not
owned by Mr. Brown, the Postmaster,
at Nebraska City, but by another Mr.
Brown, who is no relative; of the last
one, it is astonishing that tiie Herald
did not add has no influeuce that's
We simply take up this matter, not
because it makes any difference what the
Omaha Herald says about us, but only
to show the kind of argument the oppo
sition are forced to resort to ia order to
keep their courage up, and because we
don't think it does any good for a news
paper to lie when the truth wou'd serve
better. The Herald need not have gone
out of its own building to have learned
that the Blair Times was never owned
by Kiely, and also as to its circulation.
O.i tuatters of opinion, newspapers of
different po'itics may differ widely, and
one may often think the other stretches
things in its conclusions ; but when it
comes to statements of facts, there is no
excuse for f-uch statements as the above,
and nothing is proven by them. The
fact stands that the Press of Nebraska
are 33 to 10 for Grant, and generally
speaking, they are the best paying,
strongest and most influential papers in
the State that hoist the Grant colors,
and papers that were paying before,
have always paid, and always will pay
while they are managed by good business
men, as at present.

WLcn there seemed a probability that
Horace Greeley would be the nominee
of the Cincinnati Convention, Schurz
left his chair, and mingling iu his dele
gation, spike as follows :
"I think that this Convention, bynotni
natin" Greeley to the Presidency, wnuM
make a fatal mistake. I do not consider
him the strongest candidate we can nomi
nate, but he is the weakest ! It is not
possible for Gra in to get the votes of the
Uermans. All his li;e he lias been a
temperance fanatic, a;:d his name is con
netted with all the most extreme and
most unreasonable acts which temper
ance fanatics can be guilty of. Ihere
fore, Greeley is extremely objectionable,
The Liberal ticket cannot conquer with
out Ohio and Illinois. NeithrOhio nor
Illinois can be carried for Greeley. 1
have known Greeley for fifteen years,
and our connections were of the most
fiiend'v nature. But Greeley is not Jit
for the. afjire of President, cither by na
ture or education. His want ot dignity,
his odd idea', his freaks and eccentrici
ties unfit him entirely to bold such a high
and honorable position." Mo. Staats
This tells his true sentiments. Ger
mans, mind the language, "uZ his life a
temperance, fanatic. He is not fit for
the office of President." Where is the
German of this town that will now dare
face the music, and tell us Greeley is no
temperance man ?

and some kinds of our grain will bring
us a good price. Tilings appear to be a

there would be a fair crop.

than when he is called out to make a
speech just after being defeated as a can

observance. It is the custom, however,
aud all our public men are "called on,
to abide by it.

The Omaha Herald has struck a new
vein, it is highly sarcastic. It even at
tempts the humorous, and its gambols
therein resemble the antics of a fatshoat
when it teters up and down with all four
egs as stiff as bench legs, or wooden
pins. It calls our candidate lor Judge,
'Sister Maxwell." There's opprobrium
for you. Here's defamation of charac
ter. Such a charge is almost equal to
the charge of "Deacon Miiler," aud
about as true.
The facts are that Mr. Maxwell, by hia
positive knowledge of the law, and by
the cartful, sound advice that he gives
his clients, has won nearly all the legal
practice in this county, and is acknowl
edged by all parties to be a sound, c ire

Some of the opposition papers still
keep harping on Wilson's Know-Noth-
ingism. We confess that we have not
ept posted as to who may hive denied
that Wilson ever was a Know-Nothing.
Long ago we quoted the American Ency-
clope lia. U show just how much of a
Know-Nothing Wilson really was. The
only fact worth controverting is that
Wilson never was and cannot be shown
t have been a ' blatant prescriptive
now-Nothing" at all, as some claim ;

have held the office of Grand Patriarch

The Plattsmouth Herald is essaying a

said by this paper about the fihastly

oo tar as heard tiom, these conven

particular; but they may be making it
a little onpleasant to some ot the

it was a good deal more humane an in
dulgence than putting ropes around
their necks and stringing them upon
trees under threats of hanging them tor

Crops are splendid. Old ground corn
will yield Gfty bushels per acre, on an
average, throughout the entire county.
Sod corn wil! turn off twenty bushels to
the acre on an average. Potatoes are
almost an entire failure ; they were de
stroyed by their natural enemy, the po
tato bug. There has teen a heavy im
migration to the Republican countiy
this season, and still they come. At al
most any hour of the day can be seen
numbers of "prairie schooners" wending
their way westward, seeking homes on
the broad and fertile prairies of Nebras
ka, where they can earn an henest live-
ihood and be the independent owners
of the land they till. True, they are
compelled to dispense with some of the
usuries that they would, perhaps, enjoy
did they remain in the older settled
States, and perhaps have to endure some
hardships, and labor under some incon
veniences lor the nrst year or so ; out
what is this compared to the monoto

the poor" man in the too densely popu-
ated countries of Europe, and some of
our Eastern States.

The people here appear to have their
minds prcty well made up. The ma

their country on the "tented field," and
rallied around the hero of Fort Donel-

lis command amid the din of battle, the
'trumpets clangor and the cannon's
roar, and they win not dc siow on ine

for their former leader and our nation's

The Republicans of Massachusetts, in
their State Convention recently, took a
step forward on the subject of Woman
Suffrage. A year ago the Republicans
in that State, like the Republicans in
National Convention this year, resolved
to treat with respectful consideration the
claims of women for additional rights.
Now, they come out emphatically and
unreservedly, as follows :
Resolved, That we heaitily approve
of the recognition of the rights ot wo
men contained in the 14th clause ot the
National Repub ican Platform ; that the
Republican party of Ma-sachuttts, as
the representative of libeity and pro
gress is in favor of extending suffrage
on equal tcsms to all clashes of Ameri
can citizens, irrespective of sex, and will
hail the day when the educated 'ntellect
in 1 the enlightened conscience of women
find direct expression at the ballot box.
The Republicans of Massachusetts are
the legitimate vanguard of the great Re
publican party of tre nation, and four
years hence we shall find the National
Republican Convention only too eager
to take the valiant step which has been
taken in the Oi l Bay State. Honor to
the Republicans of Massachusetts. Ex.

It is reported that the Lcuisvillo denu

the nomination on Charles O Connor.
It is understood O'Connor met the derm'
tation to-day with a decided refusal, at
first, but Moran urged that, as many in
fluential citizens were ready to support
O'Connor, it was his duty to accept.
O'Connor said if he could be shown
that any considerable number of citizens-
of New York felt as Moran represented
he might modify Lis decision.
