The Camp Fire.
As lias been announced, the Post of
the G. A. R. held a glorious old Camp
fire here on Tuesday evening.
Commander Gould, of Lincoln, was
down, Past S. V. C. of the Nat. G. A.
R. Paul Vandervort, and Hon. James
Tyner, of Douglaj county, not Omaha,
were also present.
The hall was well filled, many old
soldiers from the county being present
and such fun you never saw since the
real old army days.
The Post was called to order infor
mally by Commander MacMurphy,
and opened with a song of the Camp
Fire. Col. Pierce, of the Omaha Bee,
gave us a recitation and then followed
a story by ex-Commander Livingston
that set all the old Nebraska boys in a
Song followed story, and story vied
with song until 10 o'clock, when com
rade Gould gave us a very Heat little
talk about the Grand Army and the
heroism of the soldiers of the late
Vandervort followed with a half
hour talk on Andersouville and other
matters of the war, closing by a pow
erful appeal in behalf of the organiza
tion of the G. A. It.
The whole audience then sang "John
About this time bugler Thomas ap
peared in the centre of the Hall and
blew a 'dinner call" that set S. V. C.
Twiss and O. D. Hoffman with a de
tail of comrades to rolling in a lot of
hard-tack and beans, with coffee black
enough for any soldier. The boys just
acted like children once more and
squatted around in groups on the floor
stowed away that commissary as if it
had been sponge cake and "floating
island." Ben Ilemple and Twiss and
t he rest had bought about a bushel of
beans and 20 lbs of pork for Hicks to
cook. We laughed at them when they
told us of the 20 lbs of pork, but it
was almost entirely eaten up and not
a bean was left to tell the tale.
After the rubbisk was cleared away
"The Army Bean" was sung "init a
vim" and comrade Tyner gave his ex
perience at Shiloh in a graphic sketch
of army hardship and physical endur
ance. The Post was called to order for a
few moments to return thanks to
our comrades for their kindness, when
the audience "broke ranks" for home.
Every oue was pleased, the wit the fun
was immense, a number of ladies were
out, and this the first camp fire in
Plattsmouth (since the war) will be
long remembered and spoken of by all

Court House Matters.
A committee from the Board of
Trade waited on the County Com
missioners yesterday in regard to cer
tain improvements to.be made in the
present CoU't House. Without enter
ing into the county seat question at
all, the Herald will endeavor to
state the facts as laid before the com
missioners: It is well known that the present
Court House is totally unfit, incom
modious and unsafe as a depository of
records. There are no rooms for th
Sheriff, District C'erk, School-Superintendent,
or proper jury rooms. The
court room is too small entirely, un
healthy, inaccessible from the street.
The Judge's stand is right on the
street, and the noise of wagons ic,
often make it "impossible to hear in
court time. Every term, jury rooms
are rented outside at considerable
yearly cost. Small repairs, amount
ing to a good deal in the end, are con
stantly being made to keep the pres
ent building from leaking, and make
absolutely necessary storage for books
desks and papers.
The County Clerk's room is un
safe. The present building is worth
less as an investment to the county,
the land it stands on is improving in
value daily: It is proposed to raise
the walls of the County Clerk's office
to a level with the other part, extend
the entire building, fifteen or twenty
feet north, put a suitable uniform roof
over the whole building, with good
front and windows, remodeled to suit.
This will give good Clerk and Treas
urer's offices below in front as now.
County Judge and Jury rooms in rear
of these; the upper part to be finished
for Sheriff, District Clerk's and County
Superintendent's offices, not too large,
in front of building on the street and
accessible without going to rear of
building. The rest of the room, a fair
large one, for Court room, proper,
with Judge's stand. Jury box &c. in
the rear on north end.
This improvement can be made for
two thousand five hundred dollars.
When it ia done the county will have
a good building on valuable lots on
Main 6treet, daily increasing in value,
that at any time, if the county seat
should be moved, or a new Court
House built elsewhere, could be made
at slight expense, into two number
one store rooms, and hall above, and
rent for a good interest on invest
ment, or that would sell readily for
cash to help build a new Court House
anywhere in the county.
A new Court House suitable would
cost at least $25,000. The interest on
this money $2,500 will make a very
respectable building, that will answer
until such house is built and the
county owns it and can sell it any
time for more than it cost.
This is in terms the proposition
laid before the commissioners. It is
simply a plain business statement, and
is offered as a fair and reasonable in
vestment for the county to make and
one that will save money in rents, ex
penditures and small leakages all the
time, and in no manner interferes
with any future location of county
The need for immediate repairs
on the present building is imperative,
and enough money has been dribbled
away in small sums in a few years to
almost do this. The proposed plan
will obviate that for the future.
The Herald, without comment,
submits the above as we understand
it and asks the respectful considera
tion of the same by the people and the

Since the first of May, there has been
but one arrest for drunkenness. The
city prison is empty. No convicts
parraded on our street to work out
tines, imposed fot yielding to the
temptation to "licensed saloons." The
effect is no less visible in the im
proved condition of many poor fami
lies. A siugle walk through our prin
cipal streets would convince the most
casual observer of the salutary effects
of our "prohibitory laws". Over the
door of one place that might have
properly been called "The Gate of
Destruction" is now in burnished gold
letters, "American Express office."

our mayor who, by the way, is the
son of ,our honored President of the
W. S. C. T. U. has. shown a deter
mined spirit in the enforcement of
the law. That there will be secret
attempts to evade these restrictions
we have no doubt, but the capital city
of our State, the home of our honored
and noble governor, is not to come
under the authority of law-breakers,
though it costs the same sacrifice of
time aud money to enforce and sus
tain the law that it did to arouse pub
lic sentiment in its favor. We are
glad to learn of the success of Miss
Willard in the South. How glori
ously the work goes on! "God be
