questions were asked the county clerk

1 will here request that the tax payers
of Sioux county sit. as a jury and listen
to the charges pivferred and the evidence
prodm dl and then decide accordin,
law and evidence. Mr. Klein swore to
the fort-going bill as being just and cor
rect, and unpaid, by either the county or
any individual, when he presented it for
payment. I have a eeriilied copy of this
bill in toy possession.
Will Mr. Klein or his adviser; the
county attorney, please tell us by what
kiw he allows himself four dollars a day.
The compiled Statutes, lyS7, pg. 02s,
sec. 4, requires a petition signed by at.
least ten electors residing within five
miles of the proposed road.
See. 5 requires a deposit of a sullicieiit
sum of money to pay for the surveying
and laying out of the proposed road.
Sec. fl reads as follows: Commissioners
appointment. Upon compliance with the
foregoing requisites, the comity clerk
shall appoint some suitable and disintur-
.Mr, Klein's Explanation.
Sir: in your last week's issue 1 read
among other articles an item in a com
munication from (ieo. Walker saying
that he will show in your next "week's
issue how f got iS-lO of the county money
to pay in" for a pleasure trip which I
took last, spring to Virginia. Of course
1 received $."50 Irom the county but not j
for a pleasure trip, but for the servii es 1 !
pcrl'iirmoil in the interest of the county, j
It was a mutual understanding by the
commission' rs that while I was east. I
should negotiate with the IMehold Safe
and Lock (Jo. at Canton, Ohio, and see
what I could do m regard to the burned
safe that was destroyed in the lire ami if j
I could make a satisfactory bargain awl
induce the sale company to allow us for)
the bullied safe and give us a ue v , ,
was to lie recompensed for my expenses
and trouble. Of course it was not made
an order by the board and so recorded.
Well I diil all I could. -I procured two
safes for the county, the cost of which
was $200 each, a total of .$r:J2 ; for the
net sum of $200, thereby saving the
county just $200, Or in other words, 1
got one safe free. Now my actual ex
penses incurred, serving the county, was
H railroad hire from Wheeling, West
Virginia, to Canton Ohio; and the expen
ses of three da vs living: and for which
service the county board allowed tne the
sum of if.V) subsequently for my
ix lp. He was taken into the store and
kis wound washed and afterward re
moved to his ollice where Urs. Andrews
ilud Shafer dressed the wound. It was
iVuud to have lieen made by some blunt
isistrumcnt and something of a slanting
(ilow must have been struck according
vo Uie showing of the woynd.
I Mr. Walker suilered considerable pain
faiiscd by the aching sensation in his
head for several days, but he is now able
to lie around as usual and the wound
will probably soon heal.
To say that the deed was a cowardly
and brutal one, is not adequate. For
one person to delilierab ly lie in wait for
(mother, anil he a cripple, and after
sm-aking to him in a friendly tone strike
him a blow in the dark a person who
would do that must he as devoid of prin
ciple and manhood as a hog is of man
ners. His the bight of treachery and
cowardice, the depth of villany and de
ceit. To say that it was the act of a
man would bo an insult to the lowest
and meanest of the race. No, it was the
work of a thug and its perpetration
should win him predominance among his
ested elector a commissioner to exiimim
into the expediency of the proposed road,
the alteration or vacation thereof, and

ANTELOl'E VALLEY ITEMS.
Oct. 1st, lW
Everything quiet in the valley.
Fine weather and plenty of hay in the
Potato digging anil corn husking will
soon lie in order.
We are in receipt of "feu gallons of
molasses from Mr. Leeling's mill, which
we must say is of the liesl. quality. Hav
ing made over 400 gallons up to the pres
ent time, he has fully demonstrated that
lie is an old hand at the business. It is
expected that his run will reach Kit.O gal
lons this, year. One man from Indian
creek, whose name we cannot call, haul
ed six loads of cane that made !Mi gallons.
How is that for Sioux county sweetness?
A saw mill is talked of in War llounel
canyon this full.
Mr. Saulsliury capsized with a load of
hay. in Hat. creek, at Montrose. He,
with many others, thinks a bridge is
needed at. that place.
We are informed tiiiit the bloods of
Harrison are getting on the war path
and that they choose darkness lather
than light. Never mind friend George,
it. w ill soon be too cold for theiil to stand
on the street and wail, for you.
Paul Lecling. having one half interest
m the cane null, has a good supply of
molasses, lie says that if he could lind
a girl Unit could live on tally he could
keep Imr. We think, some fair danisal
would do well to lake a claim next to
Paul's and finally take an interest in his
claim also. There ore many others too
numerous to mention.

we expected. Truth in many times

Wm. Brooks and O ar Garten made a

it is report al as th" opinion of some
that Mr. Walker will either be bought or
killed. In our opinion either way would
