The Co. Commissioners under the
law have re-districted the county
again as seen in proceedings in the
Herald of the 14th. It leaves the
present incumbents iu the game dis
trict as now. Only one commissioner is
to be elected as before.
There is one thing the feather
head presa are tolerably unanimous
and certainly consistent in; and that
is disapprovalof the Garfield fund pres
entation, or the presentation to Mrs.
(Jarfirld of any sum of mont-y while
the President lives and is in office.
The Calvert Herald is the latest
newspaper venture. It is said to be
Church Howe's organ to beat the
Post which he considers unfavorable
to him. Meanwhile, Calvert is a nice
little new town, just budding into ex
istence on the line of the IJ. & M. in
Xemaha county, and named after the
Engineer of the road. Mr. Calvt rt.

refused to do this, and called it "a
small matter," "had'nt time for
that," A-e. Humph!
The Missouri Pacific is a fixed fact,
and Weeping Water and Calvert are
two of the fixed points. Several have
asked us why we didn't give some It.

nothing new until now. Whenever
the Herald know anything it gives
it. Idle rumors we despise.

There is said to be a law now, re
quiring owners of land to cut all the
weeds in the road and keep them
down. It should be done at enev law
or no law, for the weeds will take this
country some day if they are not
checked. By the way, the city author
ities should warn lot owners to cut
down the weeds now. and trim the
sidewalks of the non-resident lots
themselves and add the expense to
the taxes on the lot.

very encouragingly of his final re
covery, though it must be under

plague him at some time in the fu

favorable ami ho is very anxious to

all the states have responded in favor
of Gov. Foster's motion, and should
the President still grow better and
stronger such a day maj soon be set,
at which all the people will be aked
to rejoice that the great crime of as
sassination was not fatal and that our

The monotony of the X. Y. Senatorial
contest has at last been broken some
what by the election, last Saturday, of
tne Hon. W. V. Miller, as U. S. Sena
tor in the place of Piatt, resigned.
Mr. Miller is a Member of Congress,
now, as well as Lapham, the other
nominee of the so-called caucus, and
should Lapham be elected also it
would leave a democratic majority in
Congress, a fact which all Republicans
should deplore. The party at present
seems to have gone crazy in its leader
ship, and nothing but the wisdom of
the people and an entire new method
of guidance can save it from utter de
Speakei Shaipe voted for Miller
leaving Conkling, and gave his rea
sons in quite a lengthy speech, the
principal one being the fact that no
agreement could be reached unless
some change was made. He deplored
the situation, and feared the result of
the election of two Republican mem
bers of Congress, but fait constrained
to help break the dead-lock and let
those who made th occasion take the
responsibility, Sisou ami B iker also
left Conkling for Miller who had just
three votes over tht. majority.

one ballot a day. Tuesday's stood

and no change Irom yesterday s ex
cept that by tlie absence of a stal

being elected. The ballot was as
follows: Total number of votes I i'2,
necessary to a choice, 72: Lapham
68, Potter (dem) 45, Conkling 2S.
Conkling is said to feel Sharp's
deflection very keenly, as Sharp was
one c f the firt to induce him to
stand for re-election. It is thought
there must be an election or adjourn
ment soon. A motion to adjourn to
morrow is before the convention and
probably will cany if there is no

Various politicians of more or less
prominence have suffered damage in
the public estimation since the con
test over the choice of two Senators
began at Albany ; but no one elsa has
been damaged so seriously as Mr. Wil
liam II. Robertson.
Mr. Robertson was long ago confirm
ed as Collector of the port of X. York,
and his commission to that office was
signed and completed many days since.
Yet, while thus wielding the influence
of the Custom House machine1, he per
sists in keeping his former place in tho
Senate- of New Y-rk, and not merely
manages the campaign against Mr.
Conkiiiig, but remains to vote against
him, although the constitution of the
state declares that no man shall hold a
federal office ami at the. same time be
a member of the Legislature.
Many unseemly occuireuces have
marked the progress of this memor
able struggle, but the conduct of Mr.
Robertson is not the- least unseemly
among them .

Great Loss of Life.
St. Pall, July, 13 A terrible tor
nado devastated tlie beautiful city of
New Ulm, Minn. Fiiday night, beai
ing death and destruction with it.
The city is situated on the Minnesota
river, and on the Winona anu St.
Paul R. It., and is the county seat of
Brown Coimtv, and contained 3,500
inhabitants. The town has a largi
number of tine buildings, among them
two mills, five public schools, two
academies, three, cliurches, costing
from .-j.OUO to .jii.OOO, and the finest
hails in Hi state. The stoi in made,
its appearance, at four o'clock and
could be distinct! seen approaching
in' two columns, one moving upward
while the oher appeared to deseend
Irom the ciouds. In the vicinity of
New Ulm six hundred buildings were
more or less damaged and some
totally " wrecked, among them being
tome of the finest business blocks.
The new Methodist church costing
S5000 was leveled to the ground.
Thirteen ilea J bodiv'v haye been found,
most of them being burned in the
wrecked buildings. It is thought
that there are. several other bodies vet
in the ruins as many persons are
The storm struck New Ulm at 4:4
and lasted just twelve minutes, an 1 in
that times not less than 30,000 worn
of property was destroyed and a num
ber of peifioiia killed and many
wounded. During the storm there
was a perfect bl.ize of fire balls. It
would nave been as dark as midnight
had it not been for the flashes of light

Kansas City, July 1C A train
robbery occuried last night on the
Rock Island road at Whislow . station,
near Cameron Junction. When tha
train which left this city last night in
charge of Conductor West wall reached
that -place at 'J :30, a gang of despera
does appeared, side tracked the train
and every car was boarded. The con
ductor was killed and passengers rob
bed. Winslow is m an open prairie
country, and would seem to be the last
piace on the line that robbers would
select for such an operation. But tho
vicinity has a very hard reputation,
aim it is not improbable that the out
laws would have assistance in their
efforts to escape pursuit.
MORE DETAILED NEWS.
Kocx Island, 111., July 10. This
evening's Argus will contain the fol
lowing account of the robbery on the
Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Rail
way: Tha train was br;ardyd at Win
slow by a gang of men, whiju a num
ber of accomplices were ready iu dif
ferent cars. The signal was given
and tii robbers rushed forward and
shot the conductor and mada an ef
fort to kill the engineer. The latter
escaped in the darkness, and a stone
mason who was one of the passengers
was mistaken lor life engineer and in
stantly killed. Having secured poso
siou of the train, one of them ran to
the engine. Steam was applied and
the train started at a furious rate of
speed. The robbers then started for
the express messenger anu anoiner
squad started for the cars, when an or
der was given the passwr.gers to hold
up their hands and give up their
monev and valuables. The men sent
to the express car succeeded in knock
ing the messenger down and securing
the keys. With these they opened the
safe and secured all the money and
valuables which it contained. The
messenger was knocked down because
there was not immey enough in the
saft to satisfy the robbers. They
threatened to kill him, but spared 1 1 is
life when he told tjiem that there was
no monoy in his poseion. Before
the robber? succeeded in robbing the
passengers, a brakeman who had not
been noiieed by the gang, pulled the
air brake and the train came to a
standstill. Thb frightened the rob
bers who left the train and made for
tlie woods. As the passengers, and
what few train men remained recover
ed themselves, tho engineer steamed
up and started the train for the city.
The passengers arrived here about 11
o'clock this morning, having been de
tained for souie time on account of a
wanhiHit en the other side of Daven
port. The testimony of tlie Pension Of

Mr. n'd .Mrs. Wm. Wheeler of Glen
wcod, Iowa, Celebrate their 50th
On last Saturday, June 16th, Mr.
and Mrs. Wm. Wheeler, father and
mother of our townsman, Maj. D. II.
Wheeler, celebrated their fiftieth an
niversary in grand style, surrounded
by relatives and friends to tlie num
ber of fifty, who came from Michigan,
Minnesota, Indiana, 111., Iowa and Ne
braska, expressly to be present on this
happy occasion. Mr. and Mrs. Wheeler
were married fifty years ago on Sat
urday; there were exactly fifty pres
ent at tlie anniversary, a strange co
incidence. From New York, their place of
marriage, thpy moved to Michigan,
where they lived for some thirty-three
years, during which time, Mr. Wheeler
occupied several offices of honor and
In lSt4 they moved to Glenwood.
Iowa, which haB since been Iheir
home. Rev. II. B. Burgess of this
city accompanied I). II. Wheeler and
family and had the honor and pleasure
of reuniting, and linking more
strongly than ever, if possible, the
vows which they made half a century
ago. Mr. Frank S. Wheeler played
Mendelssohn's Wedding March to com
plete the ceremony.
Although this is an age of improve
ment, there are some things that can
not be improved and one of these
is old-fashioned affection, which is
beautifully illustrated in this instance.
We see before us the picture of love
triumphant over time, which Burns
had in his eye when he wrote that
most touching and tender of all bal
lads, John Anderson, my Jo." For
fifty years they have sailed together
under cloud and sunshine and now
take a new departure, still young in
hearts, though old in years, and happy
in each other. We trust they have a
tianquil sea voyage before them, and
that as they draw nearer to the haven
to which we are all bound, the
"Peace Which Passeth all Understand
ing" may be theirs.

He hope the Three Groves Reporter
will excuse us for not keeping him
posted in regard to our weeds. We
have quit cultivating the "jimpson,"
except in Joe Byers garden and John
Churchchill's corn field, where, if you
wish any seed you can find them, and
as many as you want. We are giving
all our attention to the mustard cul
ture this season. We think it is a
shame to allow a town to be almost
hidden by the weeds. Perhaps that is
the reason the steam boats never
stop here, because they cannot see the
town for the weeds.

On the fair cheek of Kansas you can
easily see the glow of her great tem
perance victory. Everywhere there
are proofs of her new joy. In the
streets of her eastern cities and west
ern villages, in the. new confidence of
her men pf enterprise and dash, iu the
heroic spirit of all her clerical gather
ings, and in every department of her
cmnmercial. social, and ecclesiastical
life, yo'.i ifc:;d her f-j'rm conviction that

astonished world a city of 20,000 peu

Indications are favorable for a pret

Report of Secretary of W. C. T. U. at
Their Anniversary Sleeting.
We are assembled this evening to
commemorate the 7th anniversary of
the society known aj? tlie Woman's
Christian Temperance Union of Platts
mouth, organized March 17th, 1874.
From that time up to the present, the
society has with a few exceptions,
kept uu their semi-monthly meetings.
Not having met with the encourage
ment at all times, that they hoped to
yet have press d forward in their un
dertaking by unfalteringly pursuing
the path that duty pointed out. Tlie
average attendance at our meetings
has been gratifying. At different
times committees appointed from the
society have rendered aid to families
and persons iu need, thus gladdening
their hearts and furnishing us a source
of ?ejoic;ing, that we, too, coiiid do
something toward relieving the suffer
ing. In dispensing relief, we have, as
far as could be. cared for those to
whom 'twas a real blessing.
Committees have abo been appoint
ed to visit jail and distribute litera
ture. On April 3d, 1879. the society
assumed tlie care of the Plattsmouth
Reading room, appointing Mrs. Prof.
Wise. Superintendant and Mrs. E. G.
Dovey treasurer. Owing to the ab
sence of these ladies, we arp not pre
pared io furnish a correct statement
of this feature of our work. The
reading-room was discontinued in
April 1880, for lack of support. We
feel t:s but just, that mention be
made of Mrs. Prof. Wise, who served
as president of the society, from Sept.
1874, to Jan. 18S0. The service she
rendered, has been greatly blessed in
creating feelings of Christian fellow
ship and good will among the different
churches in our city; she carried with
her, on resigning the position she had
so ably filled, the love and esteem of
every member of the Union, of which
she is still an active and efficient
member. In May 1879, the society
asked for a space in the columns of
the "Herald" to be edited by the
Woman's Temperance Union, which
request was kindly granted by Mr.
MacMurphy, sauce which time tha
"Temperance Column" has been pre
sided over by different members of the
Union; how well, we leave for our
friends to decide. As a society, we
hope to attain to great usefulness in
the cause that we have espoused and
our watch woid shall ever be, "for God
Home and Native Land."

When a board of eminent physi
cians and chemists announced the dis
covery that by combining some well
known valuable remedies, the most
wonderful' medicine was produced,
and would cure such a wide range of
diseases that most all other remedies
could be dispensed with, many were
skeptical ; but proof of its merits by
actual trial has , dispelled all doabt.
and to-day the discoverers of that
great inuiifine, Hop Bitters are hon
ored and blessed bv all as benefactors.
Still Another Coined.
Piof. Swift, Director of tho Warner
Observatory, Rochester. New York,
has just trified the discovery of an
other comet, in the Constellation of
Auriga, made July 11th, by Prof. J. M
Scheaberle, of Ann Arbor, Mich. This
new comet is apparently coining di
rectly toward the earth, and for a tel
escopic comet, is very bright; indeed,
it can readily be seen with a good
opera glass. It is eiuite remarkable
that it should be in jast the spot
where the present large comet was
first seen by the naked eye in this
latitude, and it shows that the two
bodies must have crossed each other's
paths. This makes tluj fourth comet
discovered within ten weeks, a cir
cumstance heretofore unknown in
history. Pi of. Schcaboile has duly
filed his application for the Warner
prize of 6200 and as yet he is the only
