A JOURNALISTIC STAR OF THE
FIRST MAGNITUDE JUST DIS
COVERED IN PLATTSMOUTII.
A Lou? Felt Need in American Journal
ism and Literature t'au now be Sup
plied. From the Weejiiug Water Recorder.
Mr. O'Donohoe, of Plattsmoutli, is
the candidate on the Bourbon Demo
cratic Anti-Law ticket for County
J udge of Cass County. He is a one
horse lawer and pettifogger occupying
a corner in a room given him out of
charity by John Fitzgerald, the rail
road contractor. As ihe Democratic
candidate he meets with opposition
from one of the Republir au organs iu
Plattsmoutli, the Herald, which sore-j
ly offends him. Mr. O Donolioe feeis
very indignant that a man of his im
mense ability should be opposed by an
opposition political p;;pcr ii:u goes ir
MacMurphy of the Herald in iheiol
"1 would have MacMurphy know
that I ask no odds of any man in
America, as a writer to a journal; and
that he or any man in Piattsnioutn is
not able to put before a printer a pur
tr piece of diction than 1."
As O'Donohoe is undoubtedly a man
of unquestionable veracity, I am not
going to deny that he :s the equal of
and, perhaps, the superior of any man
in America -as a writer to a journal,"
for he says so himself. Conceding
this fact, he can do more good to the
world by filling the places of a Greeley,
Win. Cullen Bryant, Geo. D. Prentice,
and many more celebrities in journal
ism whose demise has seriously thin
ned the ranks of eminent editorial
writers, than by filling the oflice oi
County Judge of Cass County. I do not
believe that a man of his surplus of
self-esteem and overflowing egotism
can be a safe judge, for he thinks he
knows it all and would pay but little
heed to the arguments of counsel. A
man who has the cheek to boast
through the medium of a public jour
nal that lie "asks no odds of any man
in America" as a journalist, would be
apt to imagine himself supreme in his
legal decisions over the Supreme Court
of Nebraska and the decisions of the
Siinn mc rmnt. nf the. TTtiitctl Slatns.
No such man as Mr. O'Donohoe. as a
Judge of a caurt, could be influenced
by attorneys, however eminent in
their profession, and would decide a
case in the way he had his mind made
up beiore the arguments were heard.
Now for a few specimens of the
"pure diction., of a man who ";isks no
odds of any man in America." They
are taken from his communication in
the Enterprise. Speaking -of Mr. Mac
Murphy. he saj's:
"His appearance is thin and his pa
per is thinner."
"I paddle my own canoe."
"His contracted and attenuated form
will be among the things that were on
the streets of Plattsmouth.
"1 have never yet thrown ui the
"Citizens of Cass County and ftdiow
neighbors of Plattsmoutli, do not pay
any attention to the puny editor of the
Herald, if you want to see MacMur
phy taken up in a cyclone and landed
in Deadwood, inquiring for General
Cunningham, that he- might give the
seedy looking edi'.or another printing
press. M. O'Donohoe.
How is that for "pure diction" ema
nating from a man who "usks no odds
of any man in America, as a writer to
Tha writer takes no stock in the
quarrel between the Hhrald and the
Democratic candidate fr County
Judge, but he has a respect for the
office and hopes that it will be Uild by
a man who pusesses less self-assurance,
egotism and bombast than Mr. O'Don
ohoe. I will here state that I ant .i Demo
crat and have always been, but I can
not support the Bout bon anti law and
anti-progressive Democratic ticket of
Ax Oli Cass Co. Democrat.

A Ghastly Subject.
the army museum has a visitor.
Washington, D. C. September
Dr. Schrody, of the New York Medi
cal Record, upon invitation of the con
sulting physicians of the late Presi
dent, visited the Army Medical Mu
seum to-day for the purpose of exam
ining the anatomical specimens pre
served after, the autopsy. These con
sist of the fractured vertebra), tho
bro'ien eleventh rib and all tho organs i
affected by the wound. The veiteora
has been cleaned carefully and wiii bfl
mounted and preserved, as was that of
Wilkes Booth. Tha viscera is in the
condition of di?sectin as when first"!
taken from thv bo iy. The lungs, Is v- j
er, kidneys, pancreas, gall bladder and j
colon are '.here, and show the effects j
of the in j i: y from Ui" ptssage of the
ball. The suppuration surfaces, '
abscesses, pus gatiieri gs and rupture
of the mesenteric artery. The most
interesting specimen was the encysted
bed of the ball, iiito which the ball
was lilted to day. The conclusions of
Dr. Schrody and Prof. Weiz are that
great skill and care have been display
ed in the preservation of the parts,
and that the statements of the bulletin
publishing the first accounts of the
autopsy were absolutely correct, and
that nothing ha3 been concealed. Dr.
Schrody and Prof. Weiz were among
thse outside surgeons who believed
that the President would recover.
The viscera is preserved in alcohol.
Dr. Schrody was accompanied by Prof.
Weiz, of the University of New York,
who.se pistol practice on Cadavers in
July I.itt, for the purpose of discover
ing the probable course of a ball, at
tracted so much attention. They
were invited to examine the drawings
which are being made to accompany
the detailed statement of the autopsy,
which will be published in the Medical
Record of New York October 1, signed
bv all the surgeons, i his report is the
work of Dr. Woodward, LT. S. A.
Careful comparisons and verifications
of statement of record and its draw
ings, with the viscera and injured
bones, were mad', in tider that there
shall be an opportunity of intelligent
discussion and lo prevent all captious
criticism. The viscera was found to
be perfectly preserved, ol course being
founded upon the diagnosis of the
case as it existed before the revelation
of tho autopsy. They now think that
there never vaa a chance of recovery,
and that the fact that the patient sur
vived for eighty days is astonishing in
a medical point of view. The state
ment to be published here alluded to
is not the full ollicial history of the
case, but relates only to the autopsy.
The former will not be ready before
December, and will be published by
the Surgeon General's department of
Competitive llx.uai nation.
If the civil service reformers gel
the competitive examination scheme
adopted, and a man applies for the
position of clerk in the custom house,
lie will be compelled to answer such
questions us these:
What is ihe Monroe Doctrine, and
in what respect cUies it differ from the
doctiines of of nietempsychoics ?

barring Garlieid, Grant and Dr. Bliss.

H. McClain, Des Moines Iowa.
General Agent for Iowa raid Ne
braska. The life, public services and trag'c
death of Garfield furnish a record of
mere interest than any chapter of
corresponding length in American
history. Under treatment of a mas
terly pen, it expands to a narrative
in which the career of the student, the
scholar, the philosopher, the soldier,
the statesman and tha executive, form
a panorama of the most instructive
word-pictures kn: wn to our literature
a narrative that will command the
study and admiration of the worlu for
The auther of the work In reby an
nounced is one of the most eminent of
liviiig historians; a ripo scholar, a
thorough investigator, and charming
writer. His histories are known and
prized wherever English is the pre
vailing tongue. Hp approaches this
biography with a more eloquent prn
than any heretofore used by him, be
cause the subject is an inspiration to
eloquence, to truth, to reveience, to
all that is admirable in humanity. A
nobler theme for the modern writer
can not be found.
It is indeed fortunate for the com
munity that an author so well en
dowed with every qualification for the
w ork has engaged in its preparation.
His name is a guarantee ot faithful
performance. His Garlieid is that
which occupies the inmost sanctuary
of the American heart, which appeals
to its tenderest sympathies; that
teaches the bravest lessons to our
youth and the noblest to our man
hood; that irradiates from our na
tional glory to a blighter halo than
ever illumines the memories of kings
and potentates; or makes illustrious
the conquerors of states; His narra
tive is the electric chain which trans
mits the wondrous story of endur
ance, triumph over obstacles, and final
achievement, that will live in the an
na's of the world as long as virlue is
revered and true nobility honored
There are other w ks which pre
tend to recount the r.ime history.
Most of them are rev .niped from
tlie cheap biographies which were
made to influence the I'" .-.identiul
Campaign of 1830 and are i...t of per
manent value. Others are t.:ii! more
valueless, having been haslfj com
piled from articles in the newspapers
and magazines, without regard t
proper verification or arrangement.
Dr. Ridpath's book is thoroughly au
thentic. Its facts are derived from
undoubted authority and, as a rule,
from original sources of information.
It should, and doubtless will, sup
plant most of the trashy publications
which have made Garfield their sub
ject in profanation of lib fame and
for merchandise of his memory.
