Among the other exercises w ill be a
lecture by J. A. MacMurphy on "Pre

We are pained to be obliged to re
cord the assignment of Stevens & Wil

been old friends and true; and we
deeply sympathize with their misfor

FOK those who think there are no

The most enthusiastic meeting we
ever saw in Plattsmouih. was held on
Monday evening, on Fair Ground mat
ters. Five hundred dollars were raised
on the spot to pay the second note to
Mr. Wiles, and the improvements on
the new grounds thus far were hear
The Nation, a New Yoik weekly
paper of great influence, but very hyper-critical
in its carpings at public
men, generally, writes a two page ar
ticle, investigating Gen. Garfield's Con
gressional and public course and pro
nounces him absolutely clear of all
complicity with fraud or any wrong
Geue thinks that it was the sup
pression of Morrison's (of Illinois;
history as a Union soldier in the Con
gressional record for two years, that
killed him as a Democratic nominee at
Cincinnati, and then innocently asks
"Who could tell that the Confederate
Brigadiers were looking for a Union
soldier for President?"
The only reason Senator Beck, of
Kentucky, can give for supporting
Gen. Hancock, a Union soldier. Is that
lie wants to reverse the vote of the
Republicans in Congress, which once
stood 80 to 28, censuring Hancock for
Order N. 40. That's the animus of
the Democratic campaign to undo
what the country has done iu 13 years,
The Temperance Column in this pa
per as is well known is Edited bv, the
Woman's Christian Union of this city
and we are not Editorially responsi
ble for its opinions or its Articles,
further than to see that they are
within the lounds of good sense and
reasonable argument. We give the
Temperance people full play other
wise, but wish to state here tha we do
not approve and it Is not in accord
ance with our judgment to pass tuch
a resolution as the "Second one in that
'Temperpance Alliance Platform."'
While we have pledged ourselves,
personally, to sobriety, and hll aid
and encouiage others all we can in
this direction anT hope to work in
good faith with all honest temperance
people for honest, christian, (if possi
ble), temperate candidates for oflice
we cannot, nor can any man, be two
things at onc; and at present we are
a Republican, running a Republican
paper, and pledged as firmly to sup
port Republican nominees, (unless to
tally unfit for the office.)
We do not man by this to support
or have supported by any party a
drunkard or known intemperate man
(God forbid, we've hadtnough of them
in this State) for office, but simply we
deem it unwise and unnecessary to or
ganize or attempt to run a special, un
usual and outside campaign in this
state as a Te inprance Campaign, or
for the Election of pledged Prohibi
tionists. The Republican party is a temper
auce party on the whole. Its head
and front i a temperance man; and
there is no good reason to believe that
it will now nominate any but reliable,
sound temperate men for office. This
is a great crisis in the Nation's life. It
is in our judgment the most import
ant Election ever held in the United
States, and on its results the status of
America for the next twenty-five years
It is a great Election, of vital im
portance to the State of Nebraska.
It will be the most important Elec
tion we ever held as a State.
A new apportionment is to be made.
New Legislative and, perhaps, Judi
cial districts must be formed. We
have doubled in Population in a few
years and New Conyressional and Sen
atorial districts are to be created.
These are high responsibilities, the
Legislature must assume, this the
work thoy mut perform and the fu
ture weal or woe of our State for years
may depend oa their action.
We do not want then, and we can
not afford to have a Legislature elect
ed on one idea, run by foreign dema
gogues, or sacrificed to one principle
however important that may be. The
last Legislature was largely a failure.
because the nin were elected in many
cases without any fitness for the posi
tion or any brains to fill it ; but only
because they promised to vote for a
prohibition law, willy nilly.
A man may bo a most excellent tem
perance man, but a mutt miserable
Legislator. A man may not choose to
join any temperance sciety and yet be
sober and have brains enough in run a
whole Legislature himself, if necessa
ry. Honesty, sobriety and brains is
what we want bow, to correct the er
rors of last time and build well for the
Temperance we are, and temperate
we hope to stay, but no politics, if you
please. We speak thus early that you
may know where we stand. We nev
er sail under false colors and never
flinch from wht we deem duty.
Andy Johnson was elected a Re
publican, had been a Union man, too;
yet under the dominance of the strong
Southern wills, by which he had al
ways been surrounded, he was govern
ed and controlled in the interest of
the Confederacy, and against the Na
tion and all the results of the war.
What better security have we of Han
cock's course, should he be elected?
Hancock's nomination is good on
ly in one way it will once more turn
the attention of the public more to
principles and less to men. The prin
ciples that underlie each party's record
will be thoroughly sifted, and the mere
short comings of the Candidates, or
the personal spites of newspaper men
and politicians will drop to the rear in
the Campaign. Good men are neces
sary, but good principles are equally
so and lately they have been too much
forgotten, or laid aside in political con
tests. It is not against Hancock as a man,
as a Union soldier, as a citizen, that
Republicans object; bui the election of
Gen. Hancock would really mean Mil
itary rule; it would mean the entire
supremacy of the South in govern
mental affairs, the demoralization of
our currency and the breaking down
of federal authority, for the purpose
of enlarging and making paramount
the rights of States. In short, it would
make us not a nation, but a set of Cos
sack principalities. It is to prevent
this that should make every good citi
zen labor and work, and urge the elec
tion of a Republican President this
A Dn. Tanner, of New York, is
trying the experiment of fasting abso
lutely for forty days. He is watched
by nurses and physicians to see that
not a particle of food passes his lips,
and had got along to his fourteenth
day when last heard from. If he does
not die just about the time lie gets
used to "livin on nothin'," a very im
portant problem may be solved; be
cause if a fellow can live forty days
without eating, he never need want
for new clothes or jewelry. Just "lay
off" for forty days on the board bill,
and there's S25 for a suit of "hand-me-downs,"
or a new neck-tie, patent sil
ver watch and shirt gtuds.
The ladies can easily fast out for
that new duster, fresh corsets, now
teeth, or any other little article of
pleasure and bijouterie they may need.
Here's success to Tanner, then, ami
linnin' his stomach won't mow togeth

It has been suggested to us that as
Cass County, by her new Census,
will be entitled to much larger repre
sentation in State Legislatures than
before, and that as a new apportion
ment must be made this winter, we
might elect contingentllepresentatives
&c, this fall, so they could take their
seats were the apportionments needed.
We throw this out now as a sugges
tion, to be thought over, and shall dis
cuss it in the future.
Gen. Garfield's Letter of Acceptance.
Gen. Garfield's letter of acceptance
is published, and, as we expected, is a
manly, earnest and statesmanlike, doc
unient, covering the real live issues of
the day, and defining the stand the
Republican party takes on these is
sues, and his acceptance of the same.
We have not space to publish it"thi

A disastrous fire at Omaha, Friday
last, destroyed entirety a $30,000 ele

The same night the smelting works
caught, but it. was put out; a few thou
sand dollars damage.
The new Fair Grounds are progress
ig nicely. The track is drivable, the
cool, shady grove begins to look like a
re.d pleasure ground these hot days.
Part of the buildings are up, but they
look old and shabby. The Agricultur
al Society should give them a good
coat of white wash at once; that would
help them a gieat deal.
The meeting on Friday evening rais
ed the S300 to pay Mr. Wiles' second
note at once, on the spot, and decided
to keep and improve the whole fokty
acres for the present. A committee
(Capt. O'Rourke, D. II. Wheeler and
MacMurphy) went out next day, and
took nearly $200 worth of new stock,
to pay our debts, and pay for new
fencing, etc., much needed. We never
saw our people take hold of anything
so lively before, and it looks very en
couraging. There are about 230 stock
holders now in town and county, and
31,500 of the purchase money is paid.
Now, if the Agricultural Society will
put forth a like effort, and personally
se their brethren and induce them to
come out and exhibit their stock and
produce this fall, we can hold one of
the grandest fairs ever held in Cass
Meanwhile it is proposed to hold af
ter harvest a reunion of the Old Set
tlors' Society, in the shape of a huge
basket pic-nic, with speeches, history
of the Society, the grounds, etc., and to
which all residents in the County will
be invited, of course.
In this way we will put a very in
teresting organization oh its feet once
more, and at the same time christen
our new grounds for a good and use
A meeting of Old Soldiers will also
be called to increase the interest, and

spin old Army yarns?
We are not going to reach quite the

Not for the purpose of re-opening
the question ; but simply to illustrate
how opinions change sometimes, be
fore and after a Convention, or an
Election, we give this from the Oma
ha Herald of a week or two ago:.
The Herald Editor heard and saw
enough at Cincinnati of the temper
and tendencies of public opinion in the
south to satisfy him that, with Gen.
Grant in the tield against the average
democratic candidate, at least three of
the southern states would have been
dangerous and doubtful battle-ground
in the present contest. Gen. Granta
nomination would have made that of
(Jen. Hancock impossible, for obvious
reasons. The democracy of the coun
try owe much to the Blaine onslaught
which hist killed Grant and paved the
way to the incidental Garfield.
It will be remembered that the Oma
ha Herald, pending the Chicago con
vention, never shared the current opin
ion that counted on Gen. Grant as a
weak man as a candidate. Against all
such mistaken opinions it steadily
stood out. and it is now more than
ever convinced that with either of the
several conspicuous candidates at Cin
cinnati nominated, Mr. Tilde-u and
Gen. Hancock, of course, not included.
our party would have been in immi
nent danger of defeat in two or three
southern states, as well as in New
York, Connecticut, and one or two
more that we do not care to mention.

ACCIDENT OS THE B. & SI,
Engineer Michael Eapan and Fireman
John Rest Killed.
Special to the Omaha Dally Uepubllcan.
Flattsmouth, July 13. News has
reached this city of a frightful acci
dent which occurred early this morn
ing on the Republican Valley branch
of the B. & M. railway, about 2 miles
west of Naponee. The west-bound pas
senger train run into a culvert about
ten feet deep, the bridge having wash
ed out. As soon as the engineer saw
the danger he put on the air-brakes,
but could not stop in time. The en
gine pitched down in the ditch, killing
Engineer Mike Eagan and Fireman J.
Rest, and totally demolishing the en
gine. No further damage was djne ex
cept slight damage to jhe coaches. No
one else was hurt. Mike Eagan was an
old and respected resident of Platts
mouth. having lived there for twelve
years, and the oldest engineer on the
B. & M. road. He leaves a wife and
family in Omaha, who mourn his loss.
Col. II. II, Deans, showed uumistak
abe signs of insanity yesterday morn
ing and no wonder. He went to bed
the night before, as happy as a clam
at high tide, and upon Awakening in
the morning found two little baby
boys lying beside him. We believe it
was Josh Billings who once said, "no
well-regulated family was prepared
for twins, and the Colonel was not
prepared for the pair of baby boys.
He had "kivering" for one but not for
two. By calling on a neighbor he
managed to secure a little dress and
some other articles of wearing apparel.
One of the youngsters weighed nine
pounds and the other eight. The fam
ily being divided on political affairs a
compromise has been affected, and
one of the babies will be called Garfield
and the other Hancock. Journal.

Mr. R. M. Logan, a former teacher
here, and now a resident of Glen wood,
Iowa, was visiting his many friends
here last week, and he thinks of com

term. Mr. L. is an efficient teacher, and
will be a valuable acquisition to the
teaching fraternity of the County, as
he expects to take in the Institute, in
which he will, no doubt, take an active
part. Willard Smith's genial phiz was
seen in the village last week. Willard

Employment for Ladies. The
Queen City Suspender Company of
Cincinnati, are now manufacturing
and introducing their new Stocking
supporters for Ladies and Children
and their unequaled Skirt Suspenders
for Ladies. None should be without
them; our leading physicians recom
mend them, and are loud in their
praise. This manufacturing establish

made the wants of ladies and children
a study, and they ask us to refer them
to some reliable and energetic lady to
introduce them iu this county, and
we certainly think that an earnest so
licitation iu every household would
meet with a ready response, and that a
determined woman could make a hand
some salary and have the exclusive
agency for this county. We advise
some lady who is need of employment
to send a postal card to the company,
with her name and address, and men
tion this paper. Addres? Queen City
