"We seriously advocate the adoption
of the Moffet bell punch system in this

The Omaha Herald has two "preserv

C. S. Chase for Governor, and D. II.

. The Detroit Free Press holdings
were destroyed by fire on the morning
of the 29th. Tile lire was caused by
an explosion of a iras pipe and all
floors were ignited at once. Two men
were burned and a large part of the
materials. The los3 is $10,000 besides
personal property and documents in
the editorial rooms.
The Herald contained the best and
most convincing statements on the
county seat question last week, viz:
The votes of three years by precincts
and the census incria.se, just what the
people demand to know and what it is
necessary for them to know in order to
form an honest opinion. These facts
and figures M ere worth a dozen llabby
editorials on the subject.
TnE indications are favorable and
the enthusiasm greater among republi
cans in "Washington for tlia fall cam
paign than they have been since the
campaign of 1S7G. The republican
congressional committee will go to
work at once canvassing the doubtful
districts and the districts in the south
known to have large colored majorities.
The conduct of the democrats toward
colored citizens will be noted and the
pacification policy tested. The Presi
dent will co-operate with congressmen,
and a successful campaign is anticipat
ed. The Executive Committee of the
Neb. Press Association and the Com
mittee on Co-operative printing met at
Lincoln on Friday last. "We were very
much pleased- with the results of the
meeting and with thedisposition shown
to push forward the work undertaken.
It must not be expected that the
evils of man j year's growth can be cur
ed in a few months, nor that the bene
fits of the changes we desire will ap
pear at once. Radical changes come
slowly, we are perfectly satisfied with
ti e progress made and predict success
for the future. A synopsis of the pro
ceedings will be found in the Journal,
and the full proceedings in the Fre
mont Tribune of this Issue.
"While at Lincoln last week, through
the kindness of Gen. Mcliride and C.
II. Gould our little Editorial party vis
ited the State Penitentiary and saw
the new east-stone cells- being tiade.
Capt. Nobes showed U3 around and
kindlv offered us a fancy cell, which,
strange to say, we all declined. The
prison seems to be managed excellently
under the new system. They are man
ufacturing wagons, harness, cigars and
clothing and have a Laundry running.
There are over one hundred prisoners.
Four women, (in the laundry depart
ment) Capt. Nobes "says one woman
is in for murder, one for burglary and
the other two" They do very nice
work here and things look as clean and
neat as at anybody's house.
If Mr. Hayes title stood on proving
false returns in the counting of votes
in Florida, or Louisiana, or anywhere,
we could see some sense in bringing
the matter up and shouting fraud, or
listening to "confessions" of what
might chance to throw light on the
subject; but he holds his title by virtue
of a decision of the Electoral Commis
sion which expressly refused to go back
of the returns in these or any other
States, and seated Hayes in preference
to Tilden on that grour.d. If the com
mission had examined the returns and
come to a false or corrupt conclusion
and the President knew it, there might
be a show of justice ill disputing the
title; tut as it is, for Congress to inves
tigate his title is to acknowledge they
had no right to create the commission.
There is a way the matter might come
into the courts; tat that does not seem
to ba tried, and we conclude it is po
litical capital and not justice that is
wanted. The fact that IIaye3 has gone
back on the Republican party, that he
may have sold out our rights, has noth
ing to do with the manner of his elec
tion. II9 could have done that just as
well, and would probably, had he been
elected by an undisputed electoral ma
jority in the first place. "What any Re
publican ean have to gain by aiding to
unsettle the country we fail to see, and
think our delegation voted just right
&n. the ri.iir resolutions.
Join? Morrbet is really about on
his hist legs. Another attack of paraly
sis and he was about to succumb.
The Grand Jury were only in sess
ion from Monday afternoon till Tues
day noon. Jos. Johnson was foreman
and all the business was finished.
The Omah-a Bee "of " the" 29th pub
lished a letter, from .an Evanston
Wyoming correspondent signing him
self "Fair Play" in which he, the cor
respondent, attempts to refute the
statement made by Gen. Thayer in his
interview with the Omaha Herald re
porter when in Omaha. Among other
statements made in the 'letter is one
that the active opposers of Judge Peck
do not member over fifteen. The fals
ity Of this needs no showing when
the territorial legislature passed the
bill against the judge by two thirds
majority and received the approbation
of the people as a body. If the cor
respondents statement's were true and
would stand testing why the need of
assnming the non de plume of "Fair
Play"? The Bee may expect to bolster
up "its administration" by statements
fiom unknown correspondents; but
Gen. Thayer has too many friends in
Wyoming and Nebraska to be injured
by anything published and issued from
the hive of pacification.
"We can't for the life of us see that
Mr. "Wheeler or Mr. Wheeler's paper
has thrown any light on the county
seat question in the wonderful article
of last week. He does cot "rise and ex
plain his position," nor offer any argu
ment pro or con. The IIekald, on the
contrary, said all there was to be said
on the subject at that time, and it met
with the approval of the people of the
county, generally, whether it did Mr.
W'u or not. Under the circumstances,
and knowing that "Bio. MacMurphy"
as you call him came hoiae on Tues
day from a long journey, that his pa
per goes to press "Wednesday and he
had no chance to look around while
you were on the ground all the time,
don't you think it was your place to
say something about the county seat in
your issue of April ISth.
You were here, knew of the move,
posted in all the points, went before
the commissioners and tried to have
the election put off (until you could
get in your work before the County or
State Conventions for political nomi
nations this fall, so said.) The "one
eye" business is impossible: now don't
you think, Dan, that you were the un
decided chap? "We do; and moreover
the citizens cf Ca.ts County would like
to see ywi get down off the fence, and
the IIekald would like to see a little
more original matter in your paper.
"With one side printed in Chicago and
the other filled with crihhings marked
"Ex.," it is getting too thin to be even
a respectable targpt for us to waste
time an J space upon.
From riattsmouth Again.
In considering this county seat ques
tion there is a great deal of time wast
ed in finding the geographical center
of the county. "Why not look at the
populational center a little? I assert,
and it cannot be disproven, that Platts
mouth to-day accommodates more peo
ple in the county, by long odds, than
any other point yet mentioned; but, if
for any valid reason it is insisted that
Riattsmouth must lose the county seat,
why not talk a little about the justice
to the population and get the centre of
that, which would be nearer Eight Mile
Grove. Why be so particular about
rods and links and chains and acres?
Why not average the people? This
geographical business does not always
count. There may be a good deal of
acreage and not many people. Gen.
Thayerjust got scooped out in Wyo
ming on thi3 business. We believe the
district they assigned Judge Peck to,
had land enough, but it lacked people
and he rebelled. Geographically it
might do, but populationally it didn't
suit him. I also believe it will be a
great deal more expensive to tax-payers
to run the county seat at W. W.
Centre or way out west anywhere than
at Plattsmouth or near the centre of
population. Yours, &c,

The Herald's special corresgpndent
at St. Petersburg telegraphs since mid
night that very alarming rumors sud
denly sprung up in the Russian Capi
tal last night, and he simply forwards
them for what they may be wprth. It
is reported that Turkey refuses to ful
fil the stipulations of the treaty of San
Stefano, and that it has been decided
that the Russians will occupy Con
The rumor that Prince Gortschak
off's illness was a pretense to protract
the negotations proves to be one of
those infamous theories, always cur
rent in diplomatic quarters, that are
improved for the purpose of explain
ing a situation known to exist. The
facts of tho case are that Prince Gort
schakoffs illness is of the gravest
character. The gout is ascending his
lower limbs. In tbe event of the
Chancellor's death, it is considered
probable that General Ignatieff, and
not Count Schouvaloff, will be his suc
cessor. London. April 30. -The first con

From Weeping- Water.
Werpinj Wattr is situated one and
one half miles south-east of the geo
graphical center of Cass County, on a
stream from which it takes its name.
The scenery surrounding the village is
the most romantic of any in the State.
It has now eleven business houses, one
wagon shop, two blaeksmitbshopfl, one
large stone llouring irill, two line stoii4
churches and one large public school
house, two stories high. 'Within one
and one half miles of town are two
more llouring mills, and either way
from them lie many mill sites still un
improved. The Weeping Water Val
ley is famous for the excellent quality
of its building material.
Being in the practical center of the
county, Weening Water has for i num
ber of years been looked upon as the
future county seat of the county, and
it now oilers to save the county every
dollar of expense connected with the
removal of the county seat, by furnish
ing buildings and moving out the re
cords, .fcc. (The proposition it publish
ed in another column of this paper.)
So that those ho would raise the cry
of economy are silenced. It is econo
my to remove now, not only because
Weeping Water has entered into bonds
to bear the expenses incurred by re
moval, but because the continual agi
tation of this question is a cous'ant ex
pense to the county, and the source of
so much contention and jealousy that
every interest of the county is neglect
ed, iLd the wesarc now so intensely
roused to the work that the conflict
promises to be "irrepressible" until the
county seat shall finally be located at
Tiie prospects for the future of the
farmers of Cass County never
looked blighter, grasshoppers a myth
of the past. Hog-Cholera almost cor
ralled, spring nearly a month ahead of
time, and the County Seat muss in a
fair way to be settled permanently.
IIekk's only a few of the supposed
candidates this fall:
Crouuse.'llriggs, Manderson, Welch,

but His Own.

PLATTSiiocxu, April 2: 1873.
Ei. Herald: As I have received
many letters from different persons in
regard to the exact center of this coun
ty,, geographically, I sat down Sunday
and figured on the thing carefully.
Takitg all the measurements and uie
anderings on the north and enst sides, I
made the most accurate calculation I
could, and feel that I can slate the ex
ii t center of this county almost to .a
nit's eyebrow. For the benefit of all
parties interested in the real truth, and
to s ivo writing so many letters, I end
you the result of my work.
The geographical center of Cass Co.
is 23 rods south and 16 rods east of the
quarle section corner on the west side
of Section 23, Town 11, l.an.?e 11; or
in other words: The center of Cass Co.
is in the north-west quarter of the
south-west quarter of Section 23, Town
11, Range 11, east of the Gth P. M.. to
day, to-morrow, and for all tim. in my
opinion.. Several have offered me pay
for this information, but I hereby give
it freely, hoping it may do all those
good who hope good from it, and no
one harm who can't be harmed by it.
G. W. Fairfield,
P. S. Furthermore I can state that
the piece of land on which this hap
pens to drop is a broad beautiful prai
rie, with Coilar Creek running through
it, and would make a splendid town
site. It is two miles and a half north
nf the present village of Weeping
Water, and one half mile west.
For my part, I hope if the County
Scat must leave Plattsmouth, that it
will go to Center. If the object is to
suit the people, and the sin? qua non
of the county seat business is to have
it in the exact center, lei's put it on
the very clod that stands equi-distant
from the north, the south, the east and
the west; likewise corner-wise, and it's
no use otherwise, G. W. F.
Whv We Went to Wtudiington.
The Watchman-", and some other per
sons in private life seem worried a
good deal to kvow what the editor of
this pupcr went t "Washington for.
To tell the truth and say we wen, there
to pet well, h ive some fun, see the
buys and get some peaches does no
g'.:d. Tju its anxiety the Watchman
has invented the G-iveiiio: :,hip of Wy-l-iiag
for us,.giv. n us a Post Office and
the missioa to San Stefano whatever
j lather than have McDouagh and
others endure this suspense any longer
we. propose to tell our own version of
the trip and its results.
we wanted to see Tom Majois inaugu
rated, t'.iat was one thing, then we
wanted to see how a left handed Re
publican Ciign-.ssand President would
lock, and above all we wanted some
real fresh oysters, t ight on the half-slu-!l,
before the "R" months played
out. Baltimore and asliington. oys
ters an. the best, yen know, in the mar
ket. Tom's matinee didn't come off as
soon as expected and we missed that.
We were received very kindly by
botli Senators and Representatives, who
offered to show us everything to be
seen, and give us anything wc asked
for, even a lock- of their hair. Not be
ing after scalps, we declined this offer
and went off with Tom Majors to hunt
up Col. Irish and Jim Moore in the
Treasury department, We found them
both hale, hearty and saucy as usual.
James thought that his pile of green
backs everv night rather oversized the
f uuds of the State Fair, hut except a
little rheumatism now and then lie
was happy and sent his respects to all
his old friends in Xeb.
linding we were intested in tho Green
back question kindly give us a permit
to go iu and win all we could from Un
cle Sam's pile, under guard and watch
all the while. We went through the
greenback outfit and saw just how easy
it is to make money hy the million,
million dollars, if you only have the
people to back you. How hard it is to
get these same greenbacks after they
are made we all know and no amount
of persuasion has yet induced Uncle
Samuel to hand them out freely and
cheerfully, just like the blessings of
Heaven, as many persons think he
should do. It is a wonderful place,
this greenback factory of ours and a
very interesting artiehj could be writ
ten on its inner life and various hues,
but we took no notes. When Mr. Moore
introduced us to the gentleman who
piloted us, he said: "Show him every
thing as he is an Editor, and will write
it all down." Appreciating his kind
ness fully, we hereby apologize for
not writing it down becatme we really
and houestly came away to rest, and
for once were bound not to wake work
of our play as we generally have done.
One regulation we shall notice as
many are unaware Low track is kept
of the piles of money handled her?.
Every .sheet issued vthe denomination
being decided on) is called money and
is charged to the person receiving it as
so much money. Every morning each
division superintendent receives his or
her pile and is charged with it each
package, in every stage, when counted
bears the name of the person handling
it. At night all work is returned to the
vaultkeeper, the books are balanced,
the same as a cash account at the bank !
an 1 if there is a sheet or a bill missing
it must be found or ?.ceounted for be- j
fore the employes are let out of the
A HAZY ENTERPRISE.
Of course we wanted to see the Pres
ident, and one fine morning Senator
offered to introduce us to his excellen
cy. We marched out of the east door
a big man and a little one, and got into
a chariot. Now don't stare, our Sena
tor is not expensive, this chariot is a
very Republican institution eight
rides for a quarter.
In duo season we arrove at the front
door of the White House and went in.
Mr. Hayes looks just like the picnics
of him; he asked us at once what office
we wanted and how long we meant to
stay. By the way, Eastern congress
men have two stories on the West cur
rent in Washington ; one is, that a Neb.
man called on Gen. Devens, sent in his
card, &.c. The General looked at it
" From Nebraska, eh for God's sake
don't let him in, he'll never let up until
he gets what he wants, and I'm busy
with the war in Europe now," Anoth
er went to Secretary Schurtz he was
admitted and the Secretary says: "Now
what do you want, say it quick, I might
as well give up first as last for when
one of your Western chaps gets inside
the door, on track of an office, -its sur
render or stop the government until
you've had your talk out. There's no
rest here till the office i3 filled."
Let's see, where are we? Oh yes! we
modestly informed the President that
"our friends" insisted on our coming
to W. to take a hand in managing af
fairs and we would be thankful for
some small place cr other bein' a patii

dent thoughtfully stroked his chin and
says: " Mr. Mac what do you want
now, what would suits'ou like."
"Well," says we "There's Schur.
place, we think wo could fill that nice

troubled; says he: " I'd like to do it, it
would relieve me of a heap of trouble,
and that Nebraska delegation wouldn't
be down on me so, I suppose, but then
there's Rosewater he and Schurz
