The Cincinnati convention opened
at noon Tuesday. Sammy Tilden sent
a letter to the convention which was
variously iuterpreted to mean that he
was not a eandidate, that he was a
candidate, that he wanted it if he
could get it, that he didn't want to be
beat and that any way he thought the
democratic party owed him a debt of
gratitude for living long enough to
cry fraud awful loud. He called it a
letter of declination, but it was likeSey
mour's epistles, which not consenting,
yet consent. The old fox really made a
sly bid for a nomination. The Ohio del
egation got badly mixed, being in
sti ucted to vote for Thurman, while
many delegates wauted to vote (and
did vote in caucus) for Payne. They
had to be dragooned into the traces,
and finally passed the resolution given
in our telegrams, that as long as Thur

ITS view of it.
It looks to us as though Republicans
could ill afford to have a fiasco at this
particular time, but there is such an
existing measure of petty jealousy
among about six men we could name
that with them it matters little wheth
er things go to the dogs, or are carried
out in a way to creditably represent
the sentiments supposed to exist in
such meetings. Look at the following
bit of news published in the Omaha
Herald, and sent broadcast over the
State this morning. It reflects unmeas
ured credit upon the Republicans of
Plattsmouth and the leaders, who

faring man in the cilv it would look
Saturday night as though the republi
cans here, would not only deliver the
county over to Democracy, but let
"a government for the people perish
from the earth.
This is the longest article we ever
copied from the Enterprise, perhaps it
is the most important one it ever wrote,
any way we lay it before the County
for its consideration, because we told
some W. W. people at Convention time
that the trouble would be in Platts
mouth this year and not in the County,
as usual, and because before the Na
tional Convention, we said this Coun
ty would have to use caution, judg
ment and good work to elect a repub
lican ticket this fall, and this
young geatleman among others laugh
ed at that and pompously declared that
we could w:n easy. Now he despairs
of the whole thing.
The facts about the ratification are
just simply these: There was no order
for any ratification that night. On
Saturday evening, June 5th, a meeting
was held to organize a Garfield and
Arthur Club and that meeting ap
pointed a ratification on Saturday
evening. June 12th, and at the same
time ordered a meeting of the G. & A.
club Saturday, June 19th, to hear re
ports of committee's and perfect the
Organization. On June 12th it rained
too hard to hope to hold a meeting
either in doors er out.
On Monday morning we asked Pres
ident Johnson of the G. & A. Club, if
an attempt would be made to yet rat
ify. After talking it over with sever
al we camo to the conclusion to hold
our regular meeting on June 19th, per
fect the organization of the Club, have
the band there and some speeches and
talk afterwards, and we so published
it in the Herald of that week.
Friday evening a notice appeared in
the Enterprise that there would be a
"ratification meeting" on High School
Hill, Saturday, and not a word about
the G. & A. Club, which as yet was far
from perfected, the duties of the Ex
ecutive committee and other officers
being undefined, and no constitution
by-laws or rules of order having ben
adopted. That was the business be
fore Republicans on Saturday, June
19th, and the only business duly pro
vided for on that evening. By ordi
nary Parlimeutary usage, when a meet
ing of a continuous body is by any
cause abruptly adjourned without a
time set tor a future meeting it is un-
undei stood that it adjourns subject to
the call of the President and none oth
er, unless express rules to the contra
ry have been adopted. We saw Presi
dent Johnson on Wednesday before
going to Press, in the presence of
Chairman, Geo. Smith and asked if
any change of programme had ben
determined on, and was told "ho"
and that the regular meeting of the
Club would be held on Saturday even
ing as provided for at the meeting of
No one seems to want to father the
High School call, Bushnell says he got
the authority from two f the Execu

he did, two are not a majority of sev
eral members, the duties of the Execu
tive Committee were net defined as
yet, and calling meetings was not one
of them, and if it had been the Presi
dent and ourself should have been no
tified of the change.
This was the reason for the absence
of many members; there was no par
ticular jealousy about it, for there was
nothing to be jealous of.
The Enterprise is right though in
much of its article, because this will
not excuse members of the Club and
Republicans a-ho should join from not
being at the Court House to aid in
the work and increase the members of
the Club. There was no excuse for
this, but carelessness, negligence and a
passiveners to events that may cost us
our ticket this fall, if persisted in.

fiasco will do us good, it will teach us

The chief topic of conversation is

text of the letter as expressing

took this view of the letter. The
New York delegation, as will be seen
by the resolution given below, regard
the letter as expressing a sincere tie

be longer considered as a candidate.
PAYNE. OF OHIO.
It is announced, with some authori
ty, that the New York Delegation wil
present the name of Henry B. Paine,
of Ohio, for the presidency. If this is
done the Ohio delegation, which is now
solid for Senator Thurman, will be in
an embarrasing position. Outside del
egates say they will have to leave
their man and go to Payne.but all wil
not do so.
WHAT NEBRASKA WILL DO.
Nebraska has voted to go with New
iork, Connecticut and Sew Jersey
which three states have finally agieed
to act together. They have not, how
ever, discovered the cian upon whom
they can depend.
Indiana refuses to come into this
arrangement, and stands faithfully by
Hendricks. To-night they adopted a
resolution strongly condemning those
who have taken part in the inovemen
to push forward McDonald as a candi
called to order.
It was a quarter to 1 o'clock when
Senator Barn urn's gavel fell on the
speaker s desk and the democratic na
tional convention was called to order.
After prayer Barnum said he was re
quested by the national democratic
committee to nominate Geo. Hoadlty

"Echo's" Erroueous Errors.
Ed. Herald: I know not who
"Echo" is, but whoever he may be he
is either grossly ignorant concerning
Green wood news, or is very economi
cal of the truth. lie commences with
saying, that "there have been over fif
teen dwellings and business houses
erected in the last four months;" Now
Sir, this is a misrepresentation with a
vengeance. The following is a correct
statement of all buildings erected here
within the last four months: R. II
Ilaller. Store building; H. H. Alden,
Post Office; Edwin Jeary, residence;
M. Wolfe, residence; which by the
way is quite a difference from fifteen.
As to R. II. Haller's building being
equal to any in the state, or in other
words "one of the finest store rooms in
the State;" we say In all justice to Mr.
Ilaller that this is also eminently
false. It is a good building and one
of which Greenwood is justly proud,
but there are far better buildings in
Lincoln or Omaha than this. With,
regard to tha way the Post Office L
fixed" we have nothing to say, only
that we have seen a good many Post
Offices in the state that the ono at
Greenwood might take pattern after
and be improved thereby.
"Echo" writes of the lopemnt of
Eugene Mayfield acd Nellie Foster as
if it was a light trifling matter. By all
honest and respectable citizens, this
affair is on that is deeply deprecated.
Mr. Foster is and ever has been one of
our best citizens, and iu his deep mis
fortune has received the sympathy of
all, except those few whose sympathy
be would rather not have. "Echo"
says that "Mr. Foster is going to Iowa
to live," such is uot the case. Mr. Fos
ter has too many friends here and is
too good a man for us to lose; it is true
he thought some of going to Iowa, but
his friends here promptly nipped that
thought in the bud.
It was truly, a sad sight to see Mrs.
Foster, when she discovered that she
had been robbed of hr daughter.
Mr. "Echo" says that on the night
that Mr. Foster expected the runaway
couple back he "collected a party of
fellows together determined to cap
ture the truant couple and make them
suffer." Is this true? We think not.
We understand that a few of Mr. Fos
ter's friends, prompted by a desire to
see that Mr. Foster had fair play in an
interview that he wished to have with
his daiightwr, went with him to the
train. On Mr. Foster's side we under
stand there were no revolvers or bow
ie knives, but we fear we cannot say
as much for the other side.

name I shall not do so, but shall sign

THE PEDIGREE OF BEEK.
The History of the Beterage Its Use
Among the Ancient Egyptians.
Man, the animal that cooks, may al
so, it is to 1 regretted, be deiined as
the being that gets drunk. Iu some
temperance tract or other there is the
edifying story of the monkwy, who
having once been made excessively in
ebriated, became a sadder and a wiser
ape, and put his human proprietor to
shame by thenceforth firmly ifcf using
the dangerous cup. At what state of
their evolution from meukeydom men
first learned to brew, history sayeth
not; but we have the dictum of no less
authority th?.w Prof. Huxley that in
the earliest records of ail kinds of men
we find a time recorded when they get
drunk. The discovery of roast pig is
writ for all tirnejbut wo are not aware
that any one has yet portrayed the
happy savage who stumbled upon the
nveution of beer A muddy mess of
sodded fjra'n. it probably was, but our
early progenitors doubtless fuddled
themselves npen it with great sntis-
faction and complaisance, and it was
probably a hundred times more whole

cultural laborer appears to delight,
Beer at any rate speedily makes its
bow upon th stage of history, and
ome authorities inform us that the
very expression "boozy" comes from
an ancientEgyptian name for ale deriv
ed from Busiris. Be this as it may, it
is remarkable that to this day the Nu
bians brew from barley a liquor which
they call "bouza," aud the central Asi-
itic stupefies himself with "buaa," ai
beverage which had so demoralizing
an effect on the Russian soldiers that
strong efforts have been made to stop
its sale in Taahk'eud. Xenopben with
his wine-drinking Greeks, in the "Re
treat of the Ten Thousand," met with
a tribo who drank beer, and made a
note of it. The liquor of barley fo
mented to a "partial" resemblance to
wine, says Tacitus, was the favorite
beverage oi the ancient Germani, and
from a remark of the historian that
those interesting barbarians would
drink just a3 much a3 they were able
to get, we gather that the undying
thirst which characterizes the Teuton
of to-day had its prototype in his com
patriot of old.
In early times beer was made by an
infusion of malted grain, partly fer
mented and drank sweet. By and by.
ns such a compound would not "keep,"
spices, clovws, and bitters, a3 horehound
or wormwood, were added. Hops were
not used in this country until introdue
from the Netherlands, early iu the six
teenth century, when they aroused
such indignant opposition for Prince
Bismarck, who holds beer responsible
for "all tha democratic pot policy talk
ed over it," your true beer toper tends
to conservatism that their use was
forbidden by parliament. A reaction
followed, however, and hops became,
until recently, the only bitter for brew
ing permitted by law. We say until re
cently, for now not only is the addi
tion of any wholesome bitter sanction
ed, but tha latitude given brewers is
such that, much as it may surprise the
"gentle reader," beers have actually
been produced which are innocent of
hops and malt alike. Fsaally however
it is where beer passes into the hands
ef the small publican that its manipu
lation begins. There are few of these
enterprising tradesmen, in fact, who
whether tbey practice it or not, do not
possess a recipe foi making something
like making three barrels out of two.
The basis of this process is naturally
water, but as the ensuing loss of color
and flavor would probably be resent
ed, while some customers would feel
aggrieved by the consequent loss of in
toxicating power, recourse is had to
many ingenious devices. Sugar helps
to restore flavor, caramel color, and
salt gives fictitious pungency, while to
recompense those injured gentlemen
who cannot get drunk fast enough,
such unconsidered trifles as coculus in
dicus are, though happily more rarely,
added. These are the most common
adulterations at the present time.
"Eleven years our daughter suffered
on a bed wf misery under tht care of
several of the best (aud some of the
worst) physicians, who gave her dis
ease various names but no relief, and
now she is restored to us in good health
by as simple a remedy as Hop Bitters,
that we had poohed at for two years,
before using it. We earnestly hope and
pray that no one else will let their
sick suffer as we did, on account of
prejudice against so good a medicine
as Hop Bitters." The Parents.
