As to the rights of the county com
missioners to grant franchises over
public highways, hundreds and even
thousands of the citizens of this county
know that such things are dune and
that the courts uphold such franchises
when they are granted, the Journal's
distinguished jurists opinion to the
contrary nevertheless. The farmers
and citizens of this county know that
all over this county today telephone
poles are set within the public highways
and the courts will sustain such fran
chises and have done so in a vast num
ber of adjudicated cases, the Journal's
distintruished iurists opinion to the
' ' .
contrary nevertheless. The citizens of
this city will remember, two recent and
expensive law suits wherein this city
lost both cases, one being a suit against
the Nebraska Telephone Company to
compel the removal of the poles from
Main Street, and the other being a suit
against the Plattsmouth Water Com
pany, in both of which cases the courts
which spoke with authority held against
this city and against the opinion of the
distinguished adviser of the city council.
And the tax payers were compelled to
pay the expenses for this litigation and
whether or not our 'opinion is worth
anything, we may say that in private
conversation with some of the members
of the city council at the time when both
these suits were instituted, in answer
to their questions we gave it at the
time as our opinion that this city would
lose and the courts which passed upon
the cases and spoke with authority
sustained our position.
As to the matter of the publication
' of city ordinance we.? now givu it- as
our legal opinion that the publication
of such oridinances in the daily paper
is not necessary to the validity of such
ordinances, the opinion of the Journal's
distinguished jurist to the contrary
nevertheless. And further it is our
legal opinion that the publication of
these ordinances in the Semi-Weekly
Journal or twice a week News-IIeualo
woulu be a legal publication, the Jour
nal's jurist's opinion to the contrary
nevertheless. The tax payers have
bein paying for 6 publications instead
of 2 and we here and now give it as
oar opinion that the charges for the G
publications instead of 2 is an unneces
sary leakage in the city treasury. This
is the Journal'fl anxiety to continue to
drag from the tax payers this excess
charge in the publication of the ordin
ances of this city.

LOCAL AND PERSONAL
The Loyal Sons, the young men's class

pastor, The Rev. Luther Moore, where
they were entertained by that pxcel
lent gentleman and his good wife. By

Young Lady's class met with them.

to formulate plans for the building of
a room on the church building for Sun
day school purposes, which has been
under contemplation for Borne time.
The Loyal Daughters, have taken up
the matter of assisting the young men's
class in their undertaking, and the fact

young ladies, and insures the speedy
election of the much needed addition
to the church building. Both the young

South Dakota. In the drawing 4 years

government decided to put them up at
public auction, and it was for the par
pose of looking the land over prior to
the sale that these gentlemen went op
But they have vastly different ideaa
about that section of the country and
have decided that they will not attend
the government's sale. Arriving at
Herrick they were unable to hire
conveyance of any kind so decided to
walk out into the country a short
distance for the purpose of looking at
a couple of quarter sections. After
seeing the land they decided that it
was too rough to make any use of, but
what was their surprise upon retuminjr
to town to learn that ths particular
piece that they had looked at was con
sidered "comparatively level," though
it was admitted that some of the coun

purposes, as it would be necessary to
provide the cattle with "brakes" and
this would probably prove too costly to
make it practical. Returning to Sioux
City the gentlemen then took another
trip into a county further north, at
Miller. Here they found just as nice
land as ever laid under the sun, and the
prices were much lower than that in
