THE 8IOUX COUNTY j
JOURNAL UUBL'SHING COMPANY.
Hew to the Line,
(Cpntinueij from lust week)
III claim No. iwH, presented to the
board of commissioners by E. D. Satter
lee, for the sum of $104.33, tliece aresev
eitil items that for outright robbery
ai((l false swearing, exceed anything yet
examined. In looking over the records
I iipc.1 thin item.
To furnisjuii and printing 100i district
curt dockets, - - - f."0.00
I was desiupus nf olitaining one o,f the
said dockets, and asked our county Clerk
to let ii)6 hny one, and, in reply. tg said
that lie fiid not Ijave one. To uiy. ques
tion a to what had lieoome of thpm as
tlie county liad jiaid for 100 c-opieaf Mr.
Jameson said that he hsul never received
t hem, and that be did not liave a single
copy. Tlie price of $-50 made me. wish
for a copy fo use as evidence to convince
the tax'payers tliat they lire lienor swin
dled by E. D. Satterlee, with the con
sent ai(d help of the county bourd. I fl
nlally obtained a copy of the docket and
presented it to W. E. Patters;n asking
biii wiat would lie a fair price per, 100
copies for furnishing and piinting the
same, and in reply he said that fT.flO
would lie good pay. Mr. L. O. Hull, al
so a pi-.ictical printer, says that 1 or $8
would lie good ay foF tlie job. Mr. Con
Liiidcrman, also a practical printer, said
$25 would lie big pay. Bui Mr, tfcitter
lee presents a bill for f."i0 and the same is
paid without a word without even ask
ing bill) to dejiver the goods. For fur
ther information I asked Mr. 0. F. Slin
gerlalid, then foreman of the Herald of
fice, how many copi- of the docket be
luid printed and he sid fifty copies. Mr.
Slingerland is the man vt'lio did the work
and ought to know. What did the coun
ty waiit with 100 copies anyway or
even SO? They are only to be furnished
to tins attorneys in attendance and the
officers of the court. Has the court
hertr an arflry 'oT"on5Tiuiulred lawyers
and officers? The ide is preposterous.
Facts show tliat less than one dozen
attorneys were present.
Now one or two small items ffom the
record of our honorable county board.
Claim No. 531 for $100 is nol itemized.
Mr. McOinly who presented the bill may
know what service he has rendered the
county fur (his 100 but some of the rest
of us would like to know tlso. Claim
No. 209 reads as follows,
II days work on road at $2 jierday
Please liave the county attorney show
vou or the tix navem w lie re you are al
lowed $2 per day?
Claim No. 270,
14 days work on iixids, - - $42.00
By what law do you allow yourself f3
ler day and as what?
14 days use of team, $1.50 fier day, $21
Tax pavers of Sioux county look at
this for a moment and think.
14 days at $2 per day - - $28.00
" $3 " " , . 42.00
" " use of team at $1.50 per day 21.00
ToUil, - - - - $91.00
In 14 days to one man, and he one of
your commissioners, laying out a road
(as I am informed not being able to tell
from tlie records) from Harrison to or
near his own ranch, a distance of about
25 miles. Was McOinly the disinterest
ed elector the Statute calls for?
Mr. S. V. Grout, the man who survey
ed this same road from Harrison south,
for which Mr. McGinly brings in his bill
of $01 and orders hiiuwlf iaid; comes up
with a bill for $75. Did Mr. Grout work
more tlian 14 day surveying? 14 times
5 is only 70 and tlie bill is $75. Better
itemize your accounts, the people want
to know what you liave done for them
and where you did it. - Next week I will
si iow to the tax txiyers how commiss
ioner Klein got $50 of the county money
to pay him for his pleasure trip he took
to Virginia last spring. ,
I believe Mr. McGinly to lie honest in
what he does for tlie county, but he, like
many others in this county, is under
the influence of E. D. Satterlee, charmed
like a bird by a rattle snake.
You say in the Herald Mr. Satterlee Uiat
you have wasted too much time on Walk
er. L'on't you winli now tliat you hadn't
wanted any? You ay all allegations
made by me are false. Look again; they
are not allegations but facts certified to
by 'the county Clerk. You're accusing
me of selling a scraper to tlie county
that I had borrowed of J. F. Pfost is
false. Mr Pfost promises me to publish
a denial of the uliarge over his own sig-
tKlUEV Tb.wuty Clk. q)o. author

We have jisi received tlie first num

In the issue of the Republican of Sept
18, Mr. John Hunter says, that George
Walker luid advised me not to nay the
cost in the case of myself against Ring
me truth is mat instead ot telling nie
not to pay the costs, Mr, Walker told
me to ymy all Mr Hunter asked and lie
sure and take his receipt for the amount
paid. Mr. Hunter, one evening while
was in Harrison, asiceu me to pay linn
$6.40; at another time he wanted $4,60
and he wanted me to sign a note for that
amount, He further said that he would
issue an execution against me if I would
not do so. I will iay Mr. Hunt' all he
can lawfully claim for his services and
no more. These are the facts in the case
and Mr. Hunter's assertions are false in
every pai'ticylar. Yours Respectfully,
Vol. 1 No, 1 of tlie JoLKNAL, published
at Harrison, is on our tatie lor inspec
tion. It is independent in politics, but
promises, to work for its town and
county. Gordon Republican,
tlie Sioux County Journal is a new
independent paper recently started at
Harrison. The "long felt want." which
it came to fill is not visible to tlie na
ked eye at this distance, although the
Journal is quite an interesting and ener
getic sheet Sheridan Co. Sun.
The Sioux County Journal, a newspa
per starting out with full-fledged anti-
ring proclivities, as it were, made its
first visit to our sanctum last week. It
is a lively little slieet, anu win nave a
lively time before it succeeds in accom
plishing what it starts out to do. The
Clipper wishes it success. Crawford
The Sioux County Journal made its
first apjieamnce last week. It is a six
column folio, independent in politics, and
publislied at Harrison, making the third
laer for that town. We should judge
that the picking would be quite short
when it comes to grazing three paiers on
what would only bo fair pasture for one.
Hie Journal is a new republican pnjier
tliat lias recently been put in motion at
Harrison, a copy of the first issue is up
on our table. It is the third paper in
Harrison, and all. liave about the same
amount of advertising patronage. No
doubt one of tlie three papers will have
to pull, up stakes.and seek new pastures
soon, as picking is short at that place

Grant Guthrie has taken a claim
couple oi nines north oi town anu js an
imated by a desire to practice all needful
economy in the improvement thereof,
and for a week or more he was telling
bis numerous friends of bis intentions to
excavate a cistern. He borrowed u picl
and bought a siaile and sent llieni nut
by j, passing team and the other morning
"rose with the lark," spunged bis mus
cles and "hit the road" with a jug of
water and a determination of spirit. Ar

of one foot liefore the other and chaug
ings of the afore aid jug from one hand
to the oilier, for the next four hours he
proceeded to "hump himself mid tlie
pick and sjxide, Result: a round hole five
feet across and two feet deep with tlie
hardest kind of bard stone in the bottom
and a cadaverous looking individua
clothed in a subdued expression, fleein"
across the country, disregarding all road:
and animated only by a longing desire to
get away from that pick and that spade
and. that rock forever. Tliat night
Guthrie spanked the baby with blistered
hands and the next morning took $2 and
hired a man to dig his cistern.
