Hcputy Sheriff John Tighe says
in language which is much more

That Bridge Casj.
In support of Tin; He kalii's criti
cism upon the report made by The
Kluiwood Echo id Judge Field's ex
planation of his ruling in regard to
the celebrated bridge case, we have
the assurance of the judge that The
Echo's report was incorrect in that
it failed to state that Judge Field
simply quoted Chief Justice K'eese,
who wrcte the opinion of the
supreme court in that case, and
who said in that opinion: "1 1 the
"theory advanced by counsel for
"defendant in error, that the bridge
"in question constitutes a part of
"the roadbed, is true, it seems to the
"writer that the same portion of the
"road would be within the pro
visions of the law regulating the
"fare for passenger?, which is fixed
"by section 1 of article 0 of chapter

Judge Field did s ly. il the theory
upon which he decided the case
wa followed to its logical conclu-
l the bridge ought to be a free
bridge, but he did not assert that a
lecisiou of the case as arrived at by
the lower court would have made
the bridge Iree, or that the state of
.Nebraska possessed the power to
,., . if
control mat mailer, nonce we con
clude that Judge Field was fully
warranted in saying, if his view of
the law was correct, then the
bridge should be an open highway
free of extra charge or tolls to the
The Kcho's report was correct, in
as f;ir as it went, and Judge Field
Iocs not find fault with it, only it
did nov fully state all lie said, and
was liable to the construction
seized upon by the democratic
newspapers of the district, and for
that reason alone 1 UK IIKHAI.K
criticised the report.
l'HK 1 1 l-.KALP's position is that
Judge Field's vie- of the law was
in honest one: that it was a new
question and that under the author
ity produced upon the trial he was"
warranted in taking the view of the
law he did take. All courts err at
times and we would be placed in a
pretty position in this country if
every time a trial court erred in the
law it was to be condemned as cor
rupt. Judge Field is all right and the
bridge case won't hurt him in Cass
That Advertising Train.
The Lincoln hoard trade is
making a big effort to raise a fund
to aid Lancaster county in having
a proper representation on the Ne
braska Advertising Train. The
county commissioners there have
been called upon for an appropria
tion and will probably grant a lib
Cass county can well afford to
give something, too. This county
ought to be represented on the
train. The Cass commissioners
will be supported in making a fair
appropriation for this matter. The
cost to individuals would be so
small that it would never be felt.
Taxes and Patronage.
The News office is becoming
quite a substantial institution ami
the aggregate amount of taxes paid
by the members of the office foots
up to a very respectable figure,
l'his is a very important fact, and
should be duly considered in the
distribution of public patronage.

Judge Field has made a decidedly
favorable impression down in Cass

Judge Field will cary it by a good

It is claimed that K'yan is a de

Mr. McShane owns the building
known as the Kxchnnge at Pacific

Ryan came to Chicago six months
ago from Tacoma, Washington, and
entered into the service of Mr. Mc
Shane as collector of rents and gen
eral business manager. He had
authority to collect bills and pay
debts, and kept a bank account for
that purpose. At his own solicita

Two things strike lis with ania.einent

until quite recently; the other that there
is now so much heroism anil skill displayed.

efficiency of the volunteer firemen and the
heroism some man displayed in saving
women anil children, Heroism is so com
mon that it isiuilaugerof becoming cheap.
The great lire in Koine hi the time of N't in
Is doubly notable, because in the account
of it we first find the Christians mentioned
in profane history. The author of "Sala
thiil" has added to the interest in it by
that wonderful description of his hem's
esrapu fioui il, hegliiuiiig, "Koine was an
ocean of flame; height and depl h were cov
ered with red surges which rolled In lore
the blast like an endless tide."

Too much could not be done for dug
Jack after that. He was fed on t he- chilli est

fifty dollars was bought for him. In but 11,
