Stale rJaperiutendeat Lane has sent
out the fallowing circular:
Lxvaou. Neb.. April 18, 1889. Ths
following efcanges were made by the
legislature el 1889 in the law regarding
the lery of taxes:
Section M. chapter 18, statutes ol
1887, in amended to read aa follows:
Section 64. The regular meetings ol
the board of supervisors in all counties
having township organization shall be
held on the aeeond Tuesday of January
and the first Tuesday after the second
Monday in July.
This ehauge provides for the levy of
taxes voted the last Monday in June in
the oountiea having township organiza
tion. Section 77 of article 1, chapter 77, re
vised statutes, was amended by insert
ing in line five after the words "comity
board," the fallowing: Provided that
school district taxes voted at the school
district's annual meeting and certified to
the county clerk on or before the first
Monday in July, shall be levied by said
county clerk when such levy is within
the limits of the law.
Section 79, same chapter and ar
ticle, was amended hy addiug at end of
section 79 the following:
Provided, that school district taxes
shall be certified to the county clerk on
or before the nrst Monday in July.
All of these changes were made with
the emergency clause, and are now in
effect
I respectfully ask the eonntv superin
tendents to call the attention of county
clerks and the county boards to these
changes, as it is doubtful aliout the ses
sion laws being printed before the time
of levying taxes. I also call your atten
tion to the change made in section 2,
sub-division V, of the school laws as
given in house roll No. 227.

At the cabinet meeting to day the
subject of another extension of the
time wh-en the civil service shall be ex
tended over the railway mail service was
I reached by Postmaster General Wan
ainaker. A remarkable condition of
affairs exists at civil service commission
headquarters in connection with this
question. When President Harrison
took bold of bis office ho very readily
saw that it would be imiKisxilile to re
organize the railway mail service nnder
the civil service rules, and be extendod
from March 15 to .May 1 tlie time when
the law should take effect. So much
time was lost in selecting superin

izing their offices that very little

The struggle for the public printer

"Here they come crossing," ex
claimed companion. "Sea tho. cow
boys swimming their homs up the
stream." A glance in that direction
aud then down and the exclamation was
verified. They had entered the stream
from tbe other side all along its banks
and were making for the ono favorable
place of landing. Teams in every di
rection on the opposite lienk crowded
and squeezed along. Manv horsemen
had soon crossed and then tlie wild rush
across the country began.
Every living tiling wa full of life.
The songbirds seemed to add more vol
ume to their voices snd every sweet
melodious note welcomed the settler to
Oklahoma's fair land. The leaves of
the sturdy trees and blades of grass
seemed to bow a welcome to the ;oniing
horde, and the clear blue sky with not
a cloud to olstruct the enchanting view
of the heavens bade the homeseeker a
hearty welcome.
The flying cavalier in advance thrusts
the cruel spur into the flanks of his
faithful mare, and with this piece of
cold steel the blexal of the faithful ani

cowboy cavalier rushed with the sced
of an arrow. Hisiug in his stirmi ho
took a look backward, to ascertain who
was second in the choe; ho surveyed
to his right and left; and then with eyes
again tnrned to the front, ami with an
other grand effort ho was lost to sight
as he rushes to realize the fond antici
pation of being first in the grand free
to all race.
The scenes enacted here this after
noon were recorded as some of the
nioct imMrtant events in the history of
this country, or of any other civilized
place on the globe. Those who had not
been eye witnesses to occurrences here
could form no adequate idea of the
magnitude and the uurnliers partici
pating in this great movement To
make figures as to numbers is to a great
extent guesswork, but 10,000 iKtople
would Kj fair estimate of the number
now nere and within a few miles of
Guthrie. For miles and miles from this
elevated position, and with a good glass,
the Times man could see wagons, men
on horseback and men running with nil
the speed they conld command for the
particular claim they had in view.
Many a disappointment was in store
for many an anxious family, and with a
feeiing of deeiest regret did they find
after enduring the hardships and strug
t'ling for months for a particular claim,
that when they reached the sMt some
more fortunate man had arrived ahead
