the Herald's or its proprietor, please
bear that in mind. It is one of great
importance to Cass county, because it
will determine whether dictation in
nominations, and the sacrifice of all
principles for the elevation of this man

and the will of the people he ought to
be supported, and otherwise be will

It is not the greenback element of
the new party that alone constitutes
its danger. As long as it was confined
to the demand for more greenbacks, as
we understand greenbacks, and the
ussertion mado that we need more
money per capita, it was acquiesced in
by many of the west; but when it adds
to itself all ths dangerous and uncer
tain elements in tha commanity, it
must retard prosperity, because it cre

to make its appearance in plenty, at
once hides its head. Enterprises of all

remains where it is, a county fair in

Remember the Republican Prima
ries are hfcld Saturday, September 7th,
one week from the coming Saturday.
This election is a very important one
for Cass county and the party. We
urge upon all good citizens that they
make it a point to attend these prima
ries, and see that none but the right
kind of men are put on for delegates,
This is the beiginning and commence
ment of your campaign for good or evil
A mistake made at the primaries can
seldom be rectified within the party,
and has caused us to be beaten at the
polls. See to it yourselves, citizens,
that tLemen who really represent your
wishes go to these conventions. Let
no political wire-puller, no office seek
ers, and whippers in run these prima
ries. There are three sets of delegates
to elect. The most important is to the
State Convention, Oct. 1st. Then to
the District and Float conventions,
and lastly, but not least, by any means,
a County Representative ticket to be
selected by the delegates whom you
select to go to Weeping Water, at these
primaries. The fellows that want to
run things are abroad. The chaps that
think they carry Cass county in their
pockets, and confidently . tell our big
men at "Washington, and elsewhere
that they can fix this and that, are
itching to control this election for fu
ture use. Farmers, citizens, people,
see to it that your honest wishes are
not overborne by machinations and
Mayor Hale who tried to deed
Beatrice away is a reformed drunkard,
who under some of the late excitements
was elected Mayor and the Express
discourses very truly in this wise:
Andrew J. Hale, the principal in
this attempted jobbery, has been
known as a dead-beat, owning no pro
perty, and heavily in debt worse off
than nothing. He is a reformed
drunkard, yet that is something that
he might congratulate himself upon,
first because no man ought to be a
drunkard, and second because it is
simply owing to that fact that he be
come Mayor of Beatrice; but he repays
our people, who lifted hini out of the
gutter and invested him with the garb
of mayoralty, by betraying every trust
reposed in hini and entering into a
conspiracy to defraud those who
gave him a chance to rise in his pro
fession and in the esteem of tlie people.
He is also proprietor of the Beatrice
Courier, Got a paper to do dirt with
we suppose, and we presume that his
editorial jumping-jack will this week
try to excuse him and make it appear
that he has been a victim of the ma
chinations of his co-partners in this
disreputable transaction.
Colby comes in for a show too:
Leonard W. Colby is an attorney at
law and came to Beatrice about six
years ago, the seediest looking lawyer
that ever struck the town. He was
poorer than a church mouse in this
world's goods, but richer than a Croesus
in his brass and self-esteem, and by
dint of a steady application of these
admirable qualities 1ms become pos
sessed of a pretty fair share of
worldly posessions. He has been in
politics, and any person who knows
anything about him knows that a
more dishonorable politician never
button-holed the voters of this section
of country. Through buying the whis
ky influence and a newspaper, and ap
pealing to the r publicans of the sena
torial district to stand by party lines,
he managed to draw his slimy carcass
into the State Senate two years ago;
but he is in the same boat with Hale
he repays his constituents with the ba
sest ingratitude, and all the whilt grins
a grin which would do credit only to
His Satanic Majesty.
Committee to Revise the Lord's Prayer.
Xow, that Levi G. Todd, is on the
track as the greenback candidate for
Governor, we take it that his political
record and his little eccentricities are
public property. The old settlers who
have not forgotten the legislative do
ings in this State in early days will re
member that Levi represented Cass
county in the lower House in the win
ters of 18G3-G4. At that time Elder T.
B. Lemon, was Chaplain of the House
of Representatives, and every morning
offered up a fervent prayer for the ex
ecutive of the country, the judiciary
etc. Now, the Elder was known as a
southern man by birth, but a strong
union man. It coining to the knowl
edge of Mr. Todd that the Chaplain
was a southern man he made a fiery
speech in which he desired the Chap
lain in making his prayers, to call the
President (Abraham Lincoln) by name.
Mr. Lemon explained that ho prayed
for the executive regularly; but this
would not do, the name of the Presi
dent, the Chief Justice, and the Cabi
nent must be called. The following
morning, Dr. F. Renner, who was a
member of the House from Otoe Coun
ty, offered a resolution reading some
thing like the following:
Revolted, That Levi G. Todd, of the
County of Cass, be, and is hereby, ap
pointed a committee of one to revise
the Lord's Praer, and amend the Ten
Commandments, with leave to report
bill or otherwise.
The resolution was unanimously
adopted and placed on the record, but
afterward expunged. Journal.
Mr. Calhoun, the greenback nom
inee for attorney general, says that he
would not change tlie form of the ex
isting paper currency. This is an in
consistency which would require the
ingenuity of the most ingeuious green
backer to explain away, for the green
back party deinsnd3 the complete abol
ition of the "existing paper currency"
which Mr. C. insists is the very thing.
Verily, fusion doth show up the true
inwardness of these "greenback work
and labor" reformers, who are more in
tent upon defeating the republican
party than in vindicating a professed
principle, and who deliberately take a
hard money adder to their soft money
bosoms in the vain hope that its pow
er to sting has been taken away.

He i a representative character. If
you hear a man talking about the office
seeking tlie man, you may be sure that
the man whom he would like to have
the office seek, is himself. The truth
is, the gieenback party is officered by
office-seekers. There is s great array of

In 1873 the "Anti-Monopolists'
threatened to sweep everything before
them, and instantly the disaffected re
publican office-seekers took up the cry
of Farmer's rights and every one of
them became a "reformer." The result
was that the new party became odious
in the sight of the people. The same
fate awaits the greenback party. The
political elements that are gravitating
towards it, clearly foreshadow i's very

The late Julius Caesar resembled Mr.

and he carried the whole Tammany

Yet when it became evident that he
alone was to provide. Rome with its
government he suddenly dwindled into
a mere cutlery depository and retired
from office.

Toledo, August 2S. The political
campaign in Northwestern Ohio was
to-night opened on the part of the
Republicans by Secretary Sherman,
who adressed a largely attended met
ing at the Wheeler Opera House. The

the consideration of the financial ques
tion. Speaking of the Washing Machine

At last the patience of our people
and of our worthy Mayor has reached
a culminating point on one "pint" at
Mayor Johnson requested us to no
tify all persons that loose horses must
be put up and especially kept off of
Main Street. ' They reach into far
mer's wagons, destroy every thing they
and can get hold of, cause drubbles and
all the time.
The Herald called attention to this
long ago, after seeing an old screw
douse a package of sugar, a calico dress
and a baby's rattle out on the ground.
We wonder the matter has not been
brought up more emphatically before
this. Now the Mayor says there is an
Ordinance, (whats that Mr. Mayor;
never heard of one here?) and a fine
and a penalty for letting stock run
loose in the streets and that hereafter
it will be enforced. "Do ye moind
that," as MacD. might say.
We will further add that there is,
was, and ought to be, is said to be an
Ordinance against hogs and cows run
ning at large. If we can't fix up our
sidewalks we can prevent loose stock
from breaking up what there is, and
the hogs well its no use to talk
about the hogs.
Further, we desire to say that we
believe Mayor Johnson is trying
to do his duty strictly and purely un
der the law, in this sidewalk business,
with the aid of the Council, and that
when he can see a way clear to improve
them it will be done.
Jlr. IJrovrn, the Mind Reader.
Some of the little folks who had to
go to bed early want to know what
the above means and want the Her
ald to tell them what Mr. Brown did.
Well, he claims that by some means,
instinct, or an abnormal (get out your
dictionary) developement of certain
faculties, he can tell what is passing
in the mind of another person provid
ed said person fixes his own mind on
one thing very intently. To prove
this a knife was hidden in the audi
ence and Mr. Brown blindfolded took
the hider to the very man who had. it.
Captain Marshall thought out a route
over the hall, that is, up the aisles and
across at certain places, and Mr.
Brown unerringly led him over the
route he had mapped out for himself.
Mr. Dovey thought of the initials of
his Father's name " W. D." and Mr.
Brown picked them out from a string
of letters he had on the stage. Just
what this power is no one knows, that
is a subject of dispute, some thinking
it is all humbug, others that he has a
wonderful power to read the thoughts
of others. The Herald does not be
lieve in any superstition, or supernat
ural business at all. Probably, per-
ons of a very delicate organization
and natural mesmeric powers can re
ceive an impression from strong willed
people in such a way as to enable them
to make very shrewed guesses at what
is passing at that moment through the
mind, that in our opinion is all there
is of mind reading at present. A com
mittee of which Hon. S. M. Chapman
was chairman was appointed the oth
er evening, but no two of them would
probably agree exactly as to how these
ests are psif jrui.'J.
