In looking over the records in the
clerks office, in regard to the printing
and furnishing of supplies, I find the fol

The Statutes of the slate of Nebraska
require that whenever the atnount lor
furnishing of supplies and printing shall
exceed the sum of $200 in
any one year, the county c lerk shall ad-
rtise for bids, and the commissioners
shall, at their lirst meeting in January
of earl) year, give the contract for fur
nishing of supplies and printing to the
lowest resinsible bidder, and that no
supplies shall lie purchased of any other
parly during the continuance of such
contract. Now what do we find to have
been the usage and practice in Sioux
county. It is this. No contract has ev
er liecn let for anything; but in looking
up the records we (i rid that there has
been paid out of the county funds to
various parties the following amounts:
Gibson Miller & Richardson,
Hammond Bros., Fremont,

Now tax payers of Sioux county can
you see how the present county officials
obey the law and how they dispose of
your tnoney'r Will yon vote to continue
this way of doing? Your county ollicers,
contrary fo law, are parties to the fur
nishing of supplies and printing. The
Revised Statute of 1SH7, page 204, says;
that no county ollicer shall in any man
ner, either directly or indirectly, be fi
nancially interested iu, or receive the
benelit of any contracts executed by the
county for the furnishing of supplies or
any other purpose; neither shall any
county ollicer furnish any supplies for
tiie county on order of tiie coutity board,
without a contract.
The articles of incorporation of the
Sioux County Herald Publishing Com
pany, as filed in the olllce of county
clerk, are signed by John W. Hunter and
Anna E. Satterlee, by E. L. Satterlee
her attorney. Mr. Satterlee is the
county attorney and ought to know the
law. Mr. John W. Hunter is ailoiltw
county ollicer who, when able, sits in
the chair of county Judge. Now these
two county ollicials, Hunter and Satter
lee, county judge and county attorney,
are also the owners of the Sioux County
Herald and Republican, two papers
which are run in the interest of Hunter,
Satterlee and the Ring, and anyone who
conies under the displeasure of these di-
ciples of the Ring are in danger of being
run out of town or of being disposed of
in some other way, and this has been
MY fortune or misfortune for some two
months past or rather since I dared to
denounce the wrong doings of some of
the county officials; and since that time
nothing has been left undone by the ring
in their endeavor to drive me from the
lield, which they have failed thus far to
I have given to the people of Sioux
county a few of the many dirty trans
actions of our county attorney and
county judg.i and in answer they have
published a lot of libel, ami slander
against me. Among other things I have
teen charged by the soft hearted editor
of the Herald with having sold .out one
of my clients for the sum of $200, which
charge has been fully refuted by Mr.
Lewis Oerla ,h (the client refered to) in a
letter written by himself.
The second charge made against nie
by the Herald was that I had robbed my
client and countrymen by means of
false telegrams, which was also denied
by Mr Uurlucb in his letter printed in
The next charge brought was that 1
had written and caused to le published,
a criminal libel against the good,?) name
of tho editor of the Herald, county at
torney and postmaster at Harrison. 1
gave bonds in this case and was released
and again arrested on a similar charge
and this time released by the hist net
Judge, the Hon. M. P. Kinkaid, at
O'Neil, the Judgo being unable to see
utiy cause why 1 should longer be held.
'Up to this time the county has lxen put
Jones & Verity,
to a cost of $250 or $300 as fees of olli
cers, traveling expenses of Sheriff and
court ex()enses; and all for what? Sim
ply to endeavor to down me for expos
ing the Ring. Then the Herald comes
out and says we have already snt too
much time on this nii'ii Walker and we
will make amends iu a more substantial
manner in the near future, which has
lieen fully carried out by waylaying me
in the dark with intent to murder me,
But still that also failtl and in onler to
keep me from being able to go out
among the jieople to make a canvass.
the Attorney and Judge have been quite
busy arresting and trying me every few
days, on some charge or other, and bind
ing me over from day to day so as to
keep me lroin making a canvass lor the
olllce of county attorney, against Satter
lee. That man can do more right down
low dirt than any man in Sioux county.
The last charge brought by him
ag-ainst me, is one of having sold mort
gaged projierty without the consent of
(he mortgagee, and the county will have
to pay another large amount of judge's
and sheriff s fees.
But what do such men care only to
get fat fees and let the tax payers pay
them. I am called all kinds of names
but have no way to help myself while
the present county court, with its pres
ent judge exists. The judge will do any
thing that the county attorney may ask,
right or wrong.
The last of all is this, and it is only in
keeping- with the rest. Finding that Sal-
terlee's chances for an election are slim,
he requests Mr. I. P. J avis, the nominee
of the Republican outfit, to resign in
Satterlee's favor, and go out and work
for him and help to elect him and then
he will help him get the post-olllce or
or some other fat job. The intention of
(lie Ring is to curry this election fair or
foul, so look out for ballot box shilling
lid have someone keep a tally of all
votes cast and the name of every voter,
in the doubtful precincts.
Fence or Herd, Which!
Ydu were kind enough week before
last to publish my communication on
the above topic. Now I oiler a few
more thoughts and verifications of
statements made then. It is very plain
that this is not an exclusive country, but
lat it is adapted to more pursuits than
one or two. It is furthermore a fact
at auy exclusive country is not adapt
ed to that irenoral developement calcu
lated to suit the mixed multitudes of
this country. Then let us fosti r all the
industries that our country will .sustain.
We have no light to make against any
legitimate business, but rather would
protect any and all. For want of herd
law, Hall, Hamlin; Leeling, Clark, 1 art
and others have lost not less than $1,000
worth of properly, within our limited
knowledge, by straying or being driven
from the range and lost. For want of a
herd law, Cobb, Shi It., 1 out, Will
iams, Thomas, Biehle, Nelson, Robinson
and others lost in crops, in the same cor
ner of the county, $1,000 more. The
improvements kept back for the same
year is much greater.
It is surprising to see how unanimous
all the late immigrants are on this sub
ject. Brooks. Oerlach, Wilcox, Tally and
others with herds of 40 or 50 head, either
fence or herd their stock rather thn have
them depleted by the various causes
sighted hefore. Suppose we do all fence:
Where then is free range? The carrying
out of the thing asked lor, would eli'ect
ually prevent the thing wanted; so there
is no consistency In the plea whatever.
The cattle men, of large herds, only
fence for hay or winter pasture. They
do not want the country fenced; no, not
a bit of it. We have no ill will for them
as we said in our la'it. Let them stay.
But it will be necessary for them to con
form to the new order of things.
WAR RON NET
We notice an article in the Herald
stating that Mr. Walker claims that E.
I). Satterlee gets $023.11 and $194 liesides
making a total of $1117.11, according' to
the Herald's figures, hut if you will no
tice in the Journal of Sept. 13, Mr.
Walker says that tho county attorney
should have been pnid at tho rate of $300
)er annum but instead he was paid at
tho rute of $500 per annum for his servi
ces. Not satisfied with that amount the
county attorney presents a bill on the
fitl) of July for $100 and it was allowed,
and the next bill was $134.32 for furn
ishing of supplies and printing; making
a total of $794.32. Just look at the diff
erence. We wonder if there is any here
after. If there is, we would think Mr.
Herald would shake iu his boots.. Now
we think we know what Mr. fi. ,is driyjng
at. lie thinks lie will pull the wool
over the farmers eyes so they can't see
anything and keep Walker out of office.
We say to the PEOPLE of S.OUX COU
NTY; beware of false prophets and vote
for Walker and Robinson.and by so doing
put a stop to the damnable ring.
Ha! ha! ha! more mulching in the Her
ald. HURRAH FOR WALKER ANj
