judge for the same should fall either to

Mr. Standard, is not given to lying either
up or down. He will not attempt to
compete with you in that line. Repuli

Tlie presidential electors will meet the
second Tuesday in January in the vari
ous states, to cast their ballots for pres
ident and vice-president. Prior to Feb
ruary 17, the date for the meeting of
the college was in . eceml er, but the
law was changed so as to fix the date
the second Tuesday in January. The or
der of business is first the presentation
of the certificates of elaetion from the
board of canvassers, which must 1
found to lie correct and satisfactory.
Then the usual formula is put to them
as to their qualifications for holding any
office under the United States govern
ment, and, should they reply in the neg
ative, the oath is duly administered by
the secretary of the state.
The college is then organized by the
election of a president and secretary;
and then the electors cast their vote for
president nnd vice-president of the United
States. The vote is duly read, certified
and sealed, nnd three copies are to lie
prepared, one to be taken to Washing
ton by a special messenger nnd one sent
by mail. The secretary of state also re
ceives one to lie placed in the archives of
the commonwealth. The college then
proceeds with the election of a messenger
to carry the vote to Washington, whose
compensation is solely by mileage, at
the rate of 25 cents a mile.

n last week's Republican T see an un
w aranted attack on Mr. S Barker and
the Journal, charging both with stirring
up strife between the Grangers and cat
tle men and also warning people against
a possible loss of their funds by putting
them in the 1 ank of w hich Mr. Barker is
cashier. . Now the facts in the case are,
that such strife existed long before Mr.
Barker or the Journal had seen Sioux
county. And why? Surely there must
lie a cause and there surely is. , While
a port on of the cuttle men, bound by
their honor and manhood have held aloof,
others combined, with a purpose to rulo
this county to their own henetit, and
have succeeded mighty well so far. t
is unnecessary to state how as all know
onlv too well. But not content with
skinning the county, this outfit, whose
mouthpiece the R rul fican is- in open
violation of all laws of manhood or even
decency, resort now to a bulldozing sys
tem that would bring the blush of shame
tn iin ihw.k of anv honorable set' of
men. Woe to the poor subject that
would not worship at their shrine! Their
chance for a living was doom ad. With
1 lood hounds they would lie chased from
the ranches to prison some mut go, and
from the stores they,must be discharged,
and they with their families thrown out
of employment. Others were threatentd
variou: dy who would not vote nnd work
according to their dictates. These and
kindred measures were resorted to and
tlieir forces now seem to be concentra
ted uon Mr. Barker and the JorrNAL,
bee a use they have had the courage to
stand on the side of the people in de
manding their rights. That such actions
are cowardly is putting it tnildy. t is
of the same spirit that hung John Brown
the same that murdered Iwejoy and
siiuk his printing press into the Mississip-
ni river lcuuse he did dare to advocate
ar.tislavery measures; it is the contempt-
al le, cowardly spirit tlin.1 always conies
upiermost where ever political rotten
ness flourishes, but there is nn end to oil
tilings and that the Republican won't
cut any big figure with such stufi there
is no need of saying. Mr.. Barker has

The many who were present Sunday ;
evening and listened to Mrs. Bassetts
address were well repaid. The touching
memoirs of her 1 fe that she recounted
could not fail to curry conviction to her
listeners and enlist lheir-if not support,
at least respect and confidence, if there
existed a doubt liefore in the mind of any
one, as to the sincerity of Mrs. Bassett's
hristian endeavors, it must surely now
be removed. Her argument was an in
teresting and convincing one.

follows: Two massive piers would be
built, one on each bank of the river.
Heavy shafts stand up obliquely hy the
piers. At the bottom of the shafts an
endless" belt runs from shaft to shaft
across the river; but deep enough in the
water to allow the largest lake vessels
to pass over it. . The belt is made of two
strands of two inch cable connected with
cable every five or six feet, 'nto the
spaces are fitted sheet iron plates three
by five feet, pivoted at one end, opening
either way, but chained so mat tney
