Oh, the sad home coming.
There were men in this town so
wonderfully sympathetic, so sorrowful
they could not attend an honest

scruples about packing a primary in

The fact that there is no President

It is estimated that tho losses by
the explosion of the dynamite car at
Council Bluffs will reach several hun
dred thousand dollars. Tire car and
repair shops and the round house
were totall' demolished; fifty box
cars were blown to pieces; four en
gines were partially destroyed in the
round house; four or five frame resi
dences near by were demolished.
By some error or oversight the
German Leiderkrantz were not call
ed on for music Monday. It was en
tirely an oversight and should have
been remedied by giving us notice
on the stage. The seating arrange
ments were managed as well as they
could be in such a crowd. The trou
ble was the Hall was not large enough
for the people that wanted to get in
Thk very large gathering at Fitz
gerald hall Monday which was almost
impromptu, the arrangements for the
same being made in the morning, on
the street, wa3 very creditable to the
citizens of Plaltsmouth, and shews
how deeply the public heart is stirred
over the death cf ur late Chief Ruler.
Never before has such a crwd throng
ed the hall, and hundreds stood out
side. The services throughout were
appropriate and well conducted, and
the speeches were among the finest we
bar read or heard.
It is very well to mourn for Gar
field now he is gone, but we have no
respect, nor confidence in the grief
of men who, "because it is the popu
lar sentiment, step upon th boards
and tell what a great President he
was, how pure, how great a man, who
last fall called him a thief and scoun
drel, said he had his back pay "in his
pocket," and that he ought to be and
would be in the "Penitentiary" if he
had justice. Such fraud and du
plicity is beneath the contempt of
every honest citizen.
Fraud at Primaries.
A newspaper iiian has a pretty hard
time of it in a small town about elec
tion time. He hag to be suspected by
his very friends, the men he wants to
help most: he has to listen to all the
complaints of the disappointed, and
wade through a sea of slush frem both
sides only to be blamed if things go
wrong and denied any credit if they
This is bad enough from outsiders,
but when another editor and a farmer
editor at that, one who ought to know
and do better and has no cause or rea
son to do dirt turns in and helps the
meanest men he can find, to put up a
job at the primaries, as II. M. JJtislmell
did in the First Ward Saturday, it is
time the public understands the true
nature of the man, and the honest
men in the Republican ranks repudi
ate such action.
It is not because Jno. A. MacMur
phy was not elected a delegate in the
First ward that we write this, but be
cause the conduct of the primaries in
Plattsmouth have yer by 3 ear become
the cause of contention, fraud, false
voting and sometimes'violence. The
peoples' wishes are entirely ignored in
the matter of delegates, and we deem
it high time that one case at least
be made an example and Mr. Mac-Murphy's
will do as well a3 any to illus
trate proceedings which we. are bine
our honest country friends will repudi
ate and rebuke.
Personal statement of Mr. MacMur
Phy: Being well known iu this ward, hav
ing owned property in it for years,
paid taxes thereon, -and having from
duty and inclination, and in pursuit of
my business been a constant attendant
at the primaries and conventions of
the Republican party in Lit is County,
and having been a known and pro
nounced Republican during all these
years, I think I have some right, title
and interest in the Republican Repre
sentatives from this Ward, and a 1 iiiit
to be heard as to the manner of last
Saturday's election of delegates.
At least two of the persons claiming
election do not properly belong to this
Ward, have had no interest in said
'Ward, nor have they been affiliated with
the Republicans of said Ward and can
not and do not represent the senti
ments of the best citizens of said Ward,
and never can. nor ever shall represent
me, politic illy, in any conventien, or
body of men that may imret in this
County. I allude to II. M. Buslinel!
and Win. L. Browne, who came over
into this Ward but a few days before
the primaries, and who by raisrepie-
sentations the most glaring, and
by voting other than Republicans,
now claim to be elected delegates to the
County Convention. I here enter my
protest and the protest of other Re
publicans in the Ward against these
two men buing accepted as delegates,
and their votes' being counted at Lou
is vide as residents of this Ward in
such sense as would entitle them to
represent the same, and to act as dele
gates for the true residents and Re
publicans of the Ward.
I hereby give the correct list of the
persons who voted at the Primary on
Sept. 24th, in this Ward, and leave H
to the public and tlia Convention to
judge who would in right and justice
and with fair play represent the said

At least four of the above voters
voted for Hancock last fall, or were
never affiliated with the Republican
party in any way, previous to this
meetiflg, and many of t'he others were
handed ready written tickets, by II.
M. Bushnell and Browne, and caused
to vote them under an entire misap
prehension of the facts and against
their better judgment and wishes as
As every one knows I have been ab
sent lately, have had no time to "work
up" a delegation if I had the taste or
desire to. When I camw home, I was
informed repeatedly, not by one,
but by many, thai these two gentle
men were coming over in the first
ward to beat me, Bushnell making his
beast that he had done it once and
Shortly before the day of the pri
mary I was informed they had come.
Having no time and no taste for such
work, I about made up my tn'nd not
to attend the primary, as this was no
question of candidates at all, it being
clearly and thoroughly understoood
how the ward would vote on that mat
ter. I was largely induced to go to said
primary by Mr. E. II. Woolev's prom
ise that there should be "no fight" and
that my name should be put on the
ticket as a delegate. Mr. Jennings
also gave me to understand that ,his
was t he case.
Before that however, Mr. Woeley
came to ma and said Brown wanted to
know how I stood on Hyers. that he
could not vote for me because I was
not a Hyers man. I told Wooley, I de
nied the right of Brown to inyuire.but
before Woolev left satisfied him I wts
as good a fiiend as Hyers had in thi
county and no one outht to know it
better than Mr. Hyers himself. W.
said that was right and all would be
straight. Brown tacitly agreed to this
and professed the whole matter had
dropped, on the street afterwards
then went down to the voting phiee in
the evt-iiiu and five minutes before
the polls opened, took a mau aside that
wanted to vote fer me, and told him I
was not for Hyers. In this he simply
abused Mr. Hyers name because he
knew these men were friendly to
Hyers, as I was myself, but that was
the beat way to deceive them and lead
them not to vte for me. I give this
merely as one instance of the deceit
Both Bushnell and Brown had ready

And again does any one suppose that
the young men they got in there, such
a Messrs. House worth, Cline, Chas.
Duke and others would have voted
against me had the matter been fairly
represented to them. They had no ob
ject to do so. I never laid a straw in
the way of any of them. Had I known
there was to have been a contest I
would either have setn these young
men. or stayed away entirely. It was
on the repeated representatn n that
the matter was amicably settled and
my name should be on the tickets, that
I went there at all, for in a fight of
that kind I was at a disadvantage as
I had neither time, patience, er skill
and never have had, to deliberately
pack a primary falsely and unjustly as
th.s Was packed.
This is no question of candidates, for
had I gone to the Convention I should,
as I then stood, have as certainly vo
ted for Hyers and Jennings, as that
I voted at all ami left the Treasurer
to settle itself at the Convention,
though I refused to be pledged to any
man at the dictation of a few bum
mers of the Ward.
It is not that I am not a delegate, I
care little for that; it is not that I op
pose the candidates these men pretend
to be for. that I make and enter and
shall urge this protest, but fer the bet
ter purpose of securing a higher, a
purer, an honest system at our pri
maries, without which all talk of civil
service reform is nonsense and all
pretended sorrow and grief over the
misfortunes of the Nation a fraud; for
there, at the primaries, begins the di
abolical craze for power, tor office, for
plunder that has in the end led to the
sad results of the past few months,
and that is day by day sapping the
virtue and strength of the Republican
party because the people have no
real voice in selecting their candidates.
The machine does it, the Ward
strikers, the meH who have time
and like the business of pack
ing conventions, . they make the
nomination, they control the policy of
the party; and while' it is sj, honest
men will stay at home and vote not.
Thus it often is, and may be again this
Fall, that we are outnumbered and
outvoted. This protest I shall carry te
the Convention, and see if the henest
men ef the party in this County will
endorse such action and such methods
of securing a nomination.
The Ward can be represented as well,
its full vote counted. I ebject only, to
the votes of these two persons being
counted as delegates from this Ward,
on the ground that "fraud vitiatps all
things," and their representation in
this case is a fraud.
I know numbets of Republicans who
will stay at home this Fall, unless they
can be represented at Primary and
Convention by delegates of their own
free, unbiassed choosing.
Personally I am glad I am not a dele
gate, for I am thereby left free te act
as my judgment may dictate, for the
best interests of the party.

The movement to secure funds for
the erection of a monument over the
grave ef James A. Garfield is-being re

The funeral services of the late
President at Washington Friday were
short and plain. Saturday the body

The remains lay over Sunday at
Cleveland and were buried Monday
with great honors, attended by an im

country of the'Army, in Masonry, and

CEREMONIES AT THE FAVILLION.
Cleveland, Sept. 25. The cere

members of the family and relations
being about the casket. Beethoven's
funeral hymn was sung, beginning:

Scriptures were read by Rev. Bish
op Bedell, of the Episcopal dioctse. of
Ohio. It included passages beginning:
"Man that in born of woman."
"Lord, Thou hast been our dwelling place."
"But now is Clinst risen from the dejd."
Behold I show you a mystory."
PRAYER AND BENEDICTION.
At 11:45 Dr. Chkrles E. Pomeroy de
livered the final prayer and benedic
tion. Two hundred and fifty thousand
people were present and the ceremo
nies were most imposing. Nearly every
foreign country exhibited emblems of
mourning and in England Churches
were draped, services held and iu many
laces it was made a day of mourning
as much as iu this country. So great
respect thioughout the world has sel
dom been paid to mortal aian.
Business was suspended the country
over in the United States, bells tolled
and guns fired. In every town and
hamlet some marks of the universal
grief were publicly expressed, showing
that love for law and order yet pre
vail, that above all party rancour, all
partisan feeling this great Nation yet
holds sacred the words and deeds of
the Fathers. This was our President
that was kililed, the Ruler of the Na
tion, legitimately elected, dastardly
murdered. It is fot this that crowds
gathered north and south, east and
west, and showed by their public acts
and words and deeds that they still
desired this government to live intact,
entire as one great whole, and that all
faiths and creeds and beliefs united in
one grand public ovation to the dead
martyr, and in universal detestation
of the monster by whose mentis he
was taken from our midst.
As long as such sentiments prevail
so strongly and are shown so grandly
as 011 Monday r we may not despair of
a free and united Union, of a govern
ment, greater, purer, with more noble
aims and objects than has yet been
shown the world. Great afflictions
The assassination and the con
sequences that might havt nsued
pointed out to us our weakness; the
uprising of the hearts of the people
Monday and all through this terrible
trial shows our real strength and the
confidence that may be placed in the
true honest sentiments of the masses
when fairly called into action in favor
of right, justice, liberty, law and order.
How Monday was Observed.
According to the proclamation ef
the President and local officials, Mon
day was reverently observed as a day
of murning for the dead President.
All the business houses were closed.
and mostly draped. The public Halls
Churches and many private residences
were approprately draped. Service

our prople more thoroughly aroused
nor more in earnest than on this great

pathy for the living, detestation for
the murderer who has caused this per
vaded the entire assemblage.

The Grand Army assembled at 1 p.m.

son and officers, preceded by the Chap
lain and colors.
They were there joined by the Ger
man Society, the Fire Companies in
uniform, and the band with muffled
drums. Crape was on ever arm, and
the grave faces and solemn step of the
people showed there was o mvekery
in this mourning. Marching in the
above order down Main Street and le
turning, they entered the hall, already
full of citizens, awaiting their arrival.
The ban and cheir came to the front,
and the services were opened by a

brief but very pleasant and profitable
meeting at the Fair Grounds, Saturday

About fifty persons were out, a list

themselves eo well that they are deter
mined to meet again at the Fair
Grounds, on the second day of the

and have another social re-uujon.
The business transacted was to
change the time of admission to the

Christian Church Notice.
Ed. Hera ld : The Christian
Church of this city held a 1nemori.1l
service last Sunday evening; the
church was appropriately draped, and
in the rear of the uulpit was a life
size painting of the dead President,
about which was folded the American
Flag, and beneath which Wits hung a
beautiful garland of flowers; on the
table iu front of th pulpit was a cross
the body of which was white, and
trimmed in black around the edges.
This cross w;s beautifully decorated
wi;h ti-Mvera aad entwined with deli
cate vines, under the supervision of
Mr. Moore, the florist.
The floral display was the admira

The services were conducted by
Elder Crowther, and from the text,

Elder Crowther is quite a young
man, but seems of the kind ef mater

showed excellent taste in its selec

following resolutions were reported
by a committee of the church previ
ously selected and on motion adopted:
Whereas our illustrious but departed
President Jas. A. Garfield was identi
fied with the christian church for up
wards of thirty years and during that
time in the high and important posi
tion he was called upon to fill, ever
distinguished himself as an exemplary
christian; in testimony of the high es
teem in which we hold his memory,
we, the members of the Plattsmouth
Christian Church and the congregation
assembled this Lord's day eve, Sept.
25th, 1881, to hold a memorial service,
do herewith resolve:
First, That in the death ef our es
teemed brother, President Garfield, we
have lost one who was ever a faithful
and zealous member of the Church of
Christ, who, by preaching and teach
ing, did much t,o advance the Gospel
in his country.
Second, That wa shall ever cherish
his memory as that of a gallant sol
dier, a wise statesman, fnd.a true
Third, That we tender to his de

years, our deepest sympathy, in this
her great bereavement, praying that
our L-id will Le her shepherd and

SWIFT At his residence near Cedar Creek
Cass Ccunty, Neb. W'edneeilay, Kextembe
21, liiM, Ok.okuk Swikt, ajjed 64 years, 4
lnonun anil z nays.
Mr. Swift was born In the town of arry. In
Orleans county.N.Y. luno 27,131 where he spent
his boyhood days. At the age of 21 years he
came went to the then new State of Wisconsin
where he bocame acquainted uMi and married
his wife, wlio.e maiden name wax Amelia
Pieice. In the year 18US he disposed of bin
property hi Wisconsin, and came ta Cans
County. Neb. with his family, purchasing his
present farm near Cedar Creek, where be has
since resided. Mr Swift bus been an invalid
for near five years, and realizing that the time
had come when he must part from all earthly
things, during the past year he bad set his
house in order, arranging his affairs to leave
bis widow and children as comfortable as his
limited property woald admit.
Of him It can truthfully be said as his neigh
bors all testify, lhat he was honest and
straightforward in his dealings wi.h hi fellow
men, and an affectionate husband and lather,
courteous to all with whom he came in con
tact, fearless aud independent iu his views and
opinions, a man upon tli whole of moro thaa
ordinary intelligence. The county in which he
lived will long miss him ; to his bereaved
family the loss is irreparable.
Base Ball at Rock Utuffs.
Ed. Herald: We write this week
to give a few notes of the game of base
ball played at Rock J1uqs, on Monday
the 2oth, between the Plattsmouth acd
Rock Bluffs clubs. The Plattsmouth
boys were on time, and the game was
called by Mr. II. M. Bushnell, umpire.
Rock Bluffs took the bat, and led off
with 4 scores to Plattsmouth's 2. The
next two innings show two "white'
washes" 011 Plattsmouth, but they re
taliated by "whitewashing" Rock
Bluffs 4 times in succession. Platts
mouth taking the lead" at the fourth
inning, kept it through the remainder
of the game.
A few features of the game deserve
special notice, viz: Capt. Sessions'
judgment in managing his nine, his
good playing on first base and strong
batting; O'Rourke's good short-stop
ping and strong batting; Kirkham's
good playirg on second base and good
batting: Smith did good work on third
base. Hobbs, who played with the
Rock Bluffs nine, will not be forgotten
for his tine "mulling" in center aeld,
ana his stout running to first base.
Kinser, of the Plattsmouth nine, did
good work in the center.
We alss wish to say that Platts
mouth has a clnb composed only of
gentlemen, and that a club was never
treated more gentlemanly by their sub-
duers than was Rock Bluffs by Platts
Although a few of the umpire's de
cisions may have been erroneously
made, yet we believe all his decisions
were made with a view of giving jus
tice to both sid.-s. n e extend a cordial
invitation to the PlallMiiouth boys to
come, and see us agin, an I we assure
them that they will be welcomed bv
