quietly and easily about in the fore
noon yesterday. No bruises, no sprains
he smiled a smole at Bro. W. and went
home to write up the events of Tues
day. The Bell Punch.
We must have the Bell Punch system
at once. There's no use; the temperance
move pales before the rapid increase
of votes. It isn't half as mueh conse
quence to find out how many times a
man drinks as how often he votes. Let
us have the punch at once two punch
es, and every vote the bell must ring.
Each party could ring the other fel
low's punch, or punch the other fel
low's ring, just as you like; anything
to beat the registry law.
The situation in Congress is about
this: A resolution to investigate the
charge of fraud In Florida and Louis
iana is offered by the Democrats. The
Republicans demand that the investi
gation take in the whole subjeet of
frauds in voting Including the States
of Mississippi, Georgia and Oregon, and
propose to stand there till they get jus
tice in this matter. That's the talk.
Hold the Fort. Let us have the whole
matter investigated or nothing.
Catherine E. Beecher died on Sun
day last at Elm Ira N. Y. The greater
portion of her life was spent in far
thering the education of her sex, and
her numberless good deeds will live
after her and perpetuate her memory.
It is going to be a close shave, and
if Plattsmouth does not receive her
two-fifths on the first vote it is owing
to the dilatoriness and want of organi
zation of some of her own people, who
preferred street talk and common gab
We never knew one of those fellows
who can find so much fault with a
newspaper to do much work that
amounted to anything, either before
election or at the polls. Their big holt
is to find fault and let others bear the
expenses aud do the work.
J. Donald Cameron, Senator from
Penna., and Miss Lizzie Sherman of
Cleveland, Ohio, were married on the
9th. All the notable Shermans and
many prominent people of the country
were in attendance. The presents ag
gregated $100,000 in value.
Dan Johnson says the Murphy's are
getting too thick, and Weeping Water
is going to try a new scheme next time.
They propose to get Mike Murphy to
come out there and leave Tom here.
That will divide the vote and the Mur
phy's too. One at a time they can em
igrantize them, but consolidated it is
too much for them.
The letters upon which the charges
against Bishop McCoskry, of Michigan,
are based have proven to be false, with
the exception of four, which are such
as any christian gentleman might write
to his ward. The Bishop has with
diawn his resignation until such time
as his character shall be entirely vin
dicated, when it will be renewed.
Mr. II. D. Hathaway, of the Lin
coln Journal, had a very fortunate es
cape from a severe, if not fatal injury
on Saturday last. While on the way
to a fire, the buggy in which he and
Mr. Gere were riding, was upset by the
passing fire steamer and both gentle
men thrown violently to the ground.
Mr. nathaway was picked up insensi
ble, but with the exception of a bruise
on the hip and side, was soon all right.
Mr. Gere sustained only slight injuries.
The Democrats in the house through
Mr. Potter of New York have intro
duced a resolution for the appointment
of a committee to investigate the al
leged frauds in Louisiana and Florida,
which by a question of privilege is
now before the house. Mr. Hale en
deavored to offer an amendment to in
clude Mississippi, Oregon and other
states where there were notorious
Democratic frauds but was not allow
ed to do so. By filibustering the Re
publicans have so far succeeded in
blocking the wheels of Democratic in
vestigation until they shall allow it to
be full and impartial.
We would like to see our friend
Wheeler and some of those young law
yers that think the Herald ought to
have denied Weeping Water and Cen
tre space in the paper, go out in the
western precincts of this county and
talk the trash they spout on the street
here, and in secret meetings. The hon
est and hardy eld farmers would soon
teach them a lesson about rights;
but then it's so much easier to snarl in
a private meeting than to come out
open and manly. The Herald man
never says, in the paper or elsewhere
what it fears to say to the people face
Some people delight in telling fool
ish and senseless stories of fraud in
voting at different places. There is
no doubt that both parties got all the
vote out they could, but that we voted
carloads of railroad men and that
Weeping Water had been feeding em
igrants for two weeks is a patent lie
on the face of it. The railroad Co.
have not carloads of men in their em
ploy outside of Plattsmouth; and it is
not likely that steady going emigrants
anxious to reach their intended homes
and get in a spring crop would stop
days to accomodate the whims of any
country; and yet there are people here
who will seriously retail such stuff
and some beleive it.
One of the possibilities of Edison's
new invention is the voting Telephone.
Instead of sending men out with bug
gies to bring in voters, have a huge
funnel over every district where each
man could shout his vote to the tellers
where a sharp judge could tell by the
voice whether the right man was vot
in in the right place. A good expert
in voices would be employed at each
polling place. If he should hear one of
Tom Murphy's men at Weeping Water,
he would know that was a lie at once;
or if any of the Weeping Water "round
house-men" should vote "Plattsmouth"
that would be detected instanter. Hur
rah for the Bell Punch system and the
State Medical Society.
The tenth annual meeting of the Ne
braska State Medical Society will be
held at Fremont Tuesday, June 4tb,
1878. Full and interesting reports
will be made by the various sections,
and matters of much interest to the
profession will be before the society
for consideration. It is therefore de

THE COUNTY SEAT
The great battle is over, and it is
confidently supposed at this writing
that Plattsmouth has won; as heard
from now, Plattsmouth has 1054 votes
and it would take over 2600 votes in
the County to beat that and get the
County seat on wheels. Judging by
the decrease in the vote in the pre
cincts heard from, there will not be to
exceed 2500 votes polled. A close cal
culation based on the gain over the
vote of 77 in the precincts heard from
would give the possible vote of the
County at 2545.
There has been 650 votes cast as far
as heard from for removal. The pre
cincts not heard from, of course, are
those which would cast the largest
vote for removal; but making the same
calculation and allowing them the big
gest vote they can hope to make, a few
over 1500 votes is all that can De cast
for removal, and they divided between
Weeping Water. Rock Bluffs, Louis
ville and Centre, so that no one place
except Plattsmouth has yet received a
majority vote of the county.
We do not think these matters are
to be crowed over in any ungenerous
spirit. These internal agitations are
to be avoided when possible in every
community, and when inevitable, each
party should submit to the result with
patience and forbearance.
For this reason we have turned our
rooster endways over Plattsmouth, in
dicating that victory is still with us.
His head is turned the other way to
avoid his picking at smart Alecks at
home, which has already caused some
of the prominent politicians in this
burgh to show signs of baldness on the
For the present he turns his back to
Center, and his feet are feeling round
towards Weeping Water to get a bet
ter hold for next time. His tail flows
gracefully over Plattsmouth to cover
the blushes of the modest ones who
talked so hard for County Seat.
While you are examining the bird
and his points we will give the vote as
far as possible.

In Lincoln on Friday, April 28th,
the committee appointed by the Press
Aassociation on co-operative printing

As a matter somewhat encouraging
of the new departure of the association

this connection a letter was read from

Little Rock, Arkansas, ffom W. E.
Coming then to the business of co

that he had received bids from Caspar

To the Executive Committee and Com

State Press Association :
We submit for your approval and
adoption by the Press of your State
the following plan, which we believe
embodies all the features necessary to
do away with the most objectionable
adjuncts of the so-called "Patent" sys
tems, and secure the publishers the
beuetits resulting from the foreign ad
vertising which may be secured for
Our system, now partally in success
ful operation in your State, is to fur
nish publishers regularly each week,
with boxes of ready-set stereotype
plates containing 200 inches of matter
both original and selected, covering
the entire range of miscellaneous mat
ter usually published in country news
papers, from which publishers print
their issue and forward to next ollice
according to directions. The matter
being shipped by freight and the price
asked for ths use of the plates very
small, it furnishes the composition at
less than 7J cents per I'jOO eics de
Tiiis plan gives publishers eutire
control of their columns, and while
thev receive the full benefit of all ad
ver isements in the p:iper, it allows
them inure time and leasure to look
up business matters.
An extended description of our sys
tem and method of proceeding wuld
occupy uselessly much of the valuable
tine of your committert, especially so,
as the majority of your members are
already familiar with the system in its
most minute details.
Close calculation will show you that
papers printed on our plau cost less
than any other system. In addition to
these advantages now offered wo pro
pose the following:
A new department for the purpose
of procuring cash paying advertise
ments for the newspapers adoptingour
system has been added to our business,
and we will extend its benefits to all
the home-print papers of your associa
tion. Long experience in the advertising
business and very extencive personal
acquaintance with the leading adver
tisers of the country warrant us in
saying that the interest of the Ne
braska publishers in that respect will
be well guarded.
Believing mutual efforts are impera
tively demanded to secure results ben
eficial alike to the Association and to
ourselves, we propose to spare neither
time, pains, or effort to present our sys
tem thoroughly to the publishers of
your State, and shall improve it in
every possible way to meet all the
wants and demands of the fraternity.
The Stereotype works. 116 Monroe
