We have received a very nice little
invite te the Tournament at Nebraska
City, next week, and, oh! how we hope
we can go.. Thanks, gentlemen.
The boys are rather making fun of
Nye, because he let "Rosey" get away
with the baggage. He made a vigor
ous Blaine campaign, but he was no
match fer the Omaha schemers.
Then, all there Is in this campaign
is te coax recalcitrant Republicans
who never liked Grant, to come back
and vote the Republican-ticket, eh?
At least, those were the Blaine argu
ments we have heard this week.
If by means of the anti-Blaine men
giving in and allowing "Jimmy te
walk over the course, we sheuld in
duce eld David Davis to return te the
Republican party, what a hunk of
meat they would bring to the Blaine
camp, for sure. .
Jno. W. Barnes left for Silver Cliff,

Mr. J. Fenn, the Universal Story
teller of the Peru Herald is now run
ning the north Nebraska Eagle, Dako

critical point in our fortunes. We
weep tears of blood.
We have received ' a copy ef the
Waukesha, Wis, Freeman, containing
an account ef the Golden Anniversary
f Mr. and Mrs. S. II . Barstow, old
friends of ye editor's family, relating
hew the golden presents showered
upon them, brought and presented by
the many friends they had gained in
the fifty years they had journeyed to

spent in the little town where they
still dwell. Verily those silvery and
golden epochs in the pathway of life

Instructions or No Instructions.
In advising as we have for no cast
iren pledges at our county Convention,
we have simply followed our own judg
ment and the precedent established in
the county. We call the attention, of
our friend Mayor Johnson and all who
favor instructions, to the fact that we
ourselves, stood on the floor of that
convention with eight out of ten del
egates favorable to us from the start,
and yet a, Cass, County Convention
refused te instruct for MacUnrphy or
Wheeler. If they had it might hare
saved us a good deal of trouble at Lin
coln, where we were fought until the
moment of balloting by an outside
lobby who declared we bad not the
' If precedents are so strorrg in one
place, let's humor them a little in an
other. . The second" reason - for our course
has been to avoid just such a melee as
they have had in Douglas, where the
editor of the first Blaine paper there
speaks in the bitterest terms ef the
Republican convention - held, and de
nounces the factions of both the Grant
and the ether, or Blaine-Sherman, ele
ment. "... ,
We have endeavored to edit this pa
per, so that instead of building up a
faction, we could all meet as Republi
cans, and elect a good delegation to
Columbus, in which the County should
be fairly represented, and have no
dirty fight to last us all through the
If we have made a mistake in this,
some of the besc men in the United
States have made a mistake, too. and
we are in good company. Even Judge
Hoar advised the great Stato of Mas
sachusetts not to instruct. It is not
the primary object of this campaign,
the ultima thule of honest endeavor,
that there should be a lot ef Blaine
men and a lot of anti-Blaine men at '
loggerheads in either County or State
convention, but that we should all,
Republicans unite andgf tna. man

ed l?reSltLe"ljj.u0.. f Honht ArdiinntA
is our object. .
The Natural Outcome.
If the only object or the prime ob
ject of the coming Convention is to be
sure and elect a man to go to Chicago
that will vote for Blaine, and to coax
as many old Republicans back as pos
sible, by humoring them in the selec
tion of a national candidate, then Dr.
R. R. Livingston is the man the Blaine
men should select. Hell go to Chica
go, if we can coax the Convention to
nominate him, and vote for Blaine till
you can't rest. The Doctor is not just
our kind of a Republican; we thought
the man that stuck te his party
through good and evil report, was the
btauncheat man; but he is our neigh
bor and personally very popular in the
district, and would come as near car
rying it as any pronounced Blaine man
you can put up. If you're going to run
this. thing, we want you to run it, and
follow out your own conclusions. Dr.
Livingston will vote against Grant ev
ery time, and if we have got to send a
Blaine man, we would just as soon
have him as any one.
It seems the Couraut has two edit
ors, a "senior" and a "junior." Platts
Yes, and either "senior" or "junior"
can take care of a baker's dozen of
Plattsmouth Heralds with both
hands tied behind him. Omaha ner
ald. Thanks ! Plattsmouth Courant.
Oh, ho. Doctor, you want to put your
shovel in again, do you? Why didn't
you "take care" of the "little Herald"
in 1872? We observe you got hand
somely whaled then, and was sulky
over it, as you always are when whip
ped. Mr. Courant: If you're so handy
with your paws behind you, why didn't
you clean out that miserable little
Irish democratic chap at Columbus, as
you set out to do, and not turn tail,
and run down here? You'll need both
hands in front of you here, and your
brains, too. this summer.
Old Barnum got the best of Bergh
in New York, lately. He advertised
that his horse "Salamander" would
jump through a hoop of fire. Bergh
got a lot of policemen and a warrant
for Barnum, on the ground of cruelty,
etc. On the night in question Barnum
came out and made a speech before the
performance mentioned, in which he
stated that he and all his clowns would
walk through the hoops of fire first,
and then "Salamander" would jump
through them. They did; and when
the horse, a beautiful little black stal
lion," appeared, the audience cheered,
and cheered so enthusiastically that
the police and Mr. Bergh "kinder" left,
thinking an arrest that night would
Don't be so hard on us, boys. If the
Grant men should turn in now and
elect your "plumed knight," and bring
back Davis, and Palmer (of Illinois,
not our Cap.), and Trumbull, and Liv
ingston, just think of it, we poor dev
ils would elect your man for you after
all, and you would owe your victory to
the poor despised "third termer" at
Front Weeping Water.
We received .the following letter
which we publish except the dele
gates which we had before:
-As near as I can learn . the W. W
delegation is solid for Grant, the Avo
ca one for Blaine ; Centre, four for
Grant and two for Blaine. Liberty
pretty equally divided. I also under
stand that your town is divided, so
upon the present lookout we shall
have a warm old fashioned conven
tion next Saturday.
Our town is slowly but surely grow

be quite an ornament to the place. All
the stores in town are filled to their ut
most capacity with new goods, which
they are selling cheap.
The prospect of a railroad seems
good as we think there cannot be so
much smoke without some fire.
Delegates to the County Convention

the City and County, as far as heard
from, to the Republican County Con
ventiorr next Saturday, appending the
comments ef the senders themselves,
if any furnished us, as regards the
complexion of the deleration on the

that most of the precincts elected
without expressing any marked pref
erence and without instructions.

One Glass More.
Stay mortal stay : not heedless thus

Wituin that cup there lurks a curse.
Which all who drinks shall feel :
Disease and death, forever nigh.
Stand ready at the door
And eager wait to hear the cry.
Oh, give me "One glass more !"
Go view that prUou's gloomy cells :
Their pallid tenants scan ;
Gaze I gaze upon these earthly utl!.
And ask whence they began :
Had thee a tongue they'd to thee speak,
And cry the oneglaes more.
Behold that wretched female form,
An outcast from her koine.
Bleached in afflictions blighting etorin
And doo-ued in want to roam ;
Behold her ask that prattler near
Why Mother is to poor :
Hell whisper in thy startled ear
'Twas father's "one glass more."
Stay mortal, stay, rtfpent, return,
Reflect upon thy fate.

Trial of John Darlycorn. .
In the trial of John Carl) corn, alias
Strong Drink, by a jury of twelve men,
in which Judge and Jury, Attorney
General and Sheriff, together with fif
teen witnesses took part, the follow
ing indictment against the prisoner
was fully substantiated.
Firstly. That he has annually, to
an almost incredible extent, destroyed
good and wholesome grain, given by a
beneficent Providence for food, by
converting it into an unwholesome
beverage, which ho has sold to the peo
ple for "liquid bread," to the great in
jury of the health and morals of the
Secondly, That he has, in innumer
able instances, obtained money and
other valuable property from persons
under false pretences.
Thirdly, That he has to an alarm
ing extent practiced a system of quack
ery, inducing individuals to take his
malt liquor, by which a great variety
of diseases have bet n engendered and
fostered, habits of intemperance form
ed, health and strength destroyed, and
premature death brought about.
Fourthly, That he has been a
common corruptor of our youth, de
spoiling the hopes of the nation. lie
has partly, through the bad example of
Sabbath School teachers, who have
acted as his agents, led thousands of
scholars into the paths of dissipation.
By him. young men. and eyen females,
have been led to beer shops and music
saloons, where frequent seductions
have taken place and where robber
ies and murders have been plotted, in
which he has aided and abetted.
Fiftily, That he has destroyed
the peace of many families, broken up
the domesty; circle, separated husband
and wife, causing quarrels between
the nearest relatives and friends,
many of which have proved fatal.
Sixthly, That he has influenced
certain workmen to neglect their em
ployment, to the great inconvenience
and loss of theii employers, and-to
spend their money and .their time at
the public heuse, to the great injury
p.thfif families, which have become
a burden to the community.
Seventhly, That he has deprived
many thousands ef families of the
means of getting a livelihood and re
duced them to a state of starvation,
by lowering the price of labor through
drunkenness into which he generally
leads his victims.
Eighthly, That he has at certain
times and places, caused serious riots,
by which the peace has been broKen,
much valuable property destroyed and
many liyes sacrificed.
Ninthly, That he has been an ac
complice in many cases of the most
vile seduction, gaining, by false pre
tenses, the confidence of certain re
spectable families, and leading certain
members of those families from the
paths of virtue and religion; he has
ultimately consigned them to a luna
tic asylum, or left them to become
victims to suicide.
Tenthly, That he has, in connec
tion with his accomplice, Peter Porter,
Delilah Wine and ardent spirits, been
guilty of the most atrocious crimes
which have stained the page of history
causing at least, three-fourlhs of the
no vert v. crimes, disease and immorali
ty which now oppress and disgrace
Eleventhly, That the prisoner
has never been of any real service to
the community, and that there are no
redeemincr qualities in his character;
and that the community would bo in
finitely advantaged by the banishment
of Strong Drink.
National Temperance S'y Tract.
Anybody can be an Editor T
The business of journalism will con
tinue to be an inviting one aud open
field for experiments to those who
have a good amount of money, and a
good amount of egotism. It a man who
having edited a newspaper until he
was forty, should suddenly announce
himself a doctor or lawyer, he would
be regarded a fool by those professions
and yet we often hear of doctors and
lawyers making sudden pretensions to
journalism. There is an idea that the
busine33 of editing requires no ap
prenticeship, that editors come forth
from law offices and colleges fully
armed for the profession, like Pallus
from the brow of Jove. It is a mistake ;
UiprP! is not in America to-dav a sinirle
journalist of national or any noted
reputation wiio lias not aevoiea more
time and work to his profession than,
with equal fitness and application,
would have made him a great lawyer
or good physician. And yet ninety out
of every one hundred men you meet
on the street will hesitate about carry
ing a hod or making a pair of shoes,
whereas there will probably not be one
in a. lmnrlrpil who punNot. accordinsrto
his own judgment, edit any newspaper
in the country better man n is euuen,
no matter in what manner or by whom.
The first attempt to manufacture
pins iu this country was made soon
after the war of 1812.

Ttiat stalwart Blaine journal, the
Sidney Plaindealer, has at last hecome
disgusted with the course of the Oma
ha lilaine organ, and makes a vigorous
protest against abuse of (Jen. (Irant,
which, being false, can only have the
effect to "make Grant's chances more
certain." The Plaindealer should have
spoken weeks ago. Wo could name
scores of "original Blaine men" in Ne
braska who have been alienated from
him and have espoused the candidacy
of Gen. Grant simply with a determ
ination to rebuke a policy that sought
to elevate one good republican by drag
ging anothwr down. We could, too,
name scores of republican soldier-citizens
who have become disgusted with
a championship of ilr. Blaiue, w hich
has outraged the Grand Army of the
State by false and malicious donuncia
tions of the man who has done almost
more than any other to organize The
Order in this State, and who is held in
universal esteem by his thousands of
comrades. The Plaindealer's protest
has not been uttered one moment too
soon . O maha liep u bl ican .
