For some time just tlie quarters oc-t'-::iieJ
by TiiE JocRSAL liave been un
ccinfortably crowded and tlie projirietors
determined to get into some place la.rj,'e
t-r.ough to accommodate tlie increasing
business. In order to do this they re
cently purchased the lot and building ad
joining the Bank of Harrison on tlie
corth and have removed their office and
material to that place. The Juvenal
now occupies the room formerly used by
M. Brack as a shoe shop and also tlie
"oom north of it, which makes them
very pleasant and comfortable quarters,
had will give The Journal boys a better
chance to get out tlie best (taper in
northwestern Nebraska. We are pleased
with the maimer in which The Journal
is received and the substantial encour
iement the people are giving the paper
and hope to merit a continuance of the
same. The people of Sioux county may
r?st assured The Journal will continue
to improve as rapidly as tlie develop
inent of the county will warrant, and
t-'iall strive to hold a plai-e in the front
lank of journalism.
Remember our combination offer as ad
vertised in another column, and call and
drop two dollars into our till and get two
papers for the price of one.
We invite all to call and see us in our
E2W quarters and get acquainted with
us and then you will know better vhat
kind of people we are.
If you have any items of news that
v ould interest the readers of The Jour
nal, do not hesitate to send it to us.
We want all the news we can get.
Last Vfir tlie value of tlie com, oat and
wiieat crop of Nebraska was ts-timated
by tlie agricultural bureau at about Itfty
million dollars. The juwpects are that
this vear the crop will be even greater.
Tlie state militia is taking steps for
holding tlie regular annual encampment
as directed by law. The great cut in
tlie appropriations ratlier dazed tlie mi
litiamen but they apiar to be rallying

Congressman llorsey is reported as
saying tliat Gov. Thayer will be a can
didate for re-election, and the Governor
says tliat Dorsey seems to know more
about it tliau he does himself. The in
dications are tliat there will be a long
list of candidates for tliat position when
the time comes.
Lincoln set to work to liave a big 4tJi
of July celebration and tlie result was
highly satisfactory. When the people
and business men of Lincoln take it iuto
their heads to do something for the town
every one takes hold in earnest and the
result is that success crowns their ef
forts. In unity there is strengtlu

A party of fifty comjiosed of members
of the state press association and their
wives left Omaha last Saturday for the
long talked of trip to Puget Sound. They
will have a pleasant trip and return to
their homes better preiared tlian ever to
furnish the best newsjiujier service any
state in the union enjoys.
Elsewhere in tliis issue appears a call
for a meeting of the people interested in
advancing the welfare and prosperity
of Harrison and Sioux County. It will
be noticed that the call is signed by a
number of the leading citizens of this
jdace and no one to whom the paper was
ahown declined to put his name down.
Every one in the place, without a doubt,
y.'ould have signed it but it was not
thought necessary to burden the call
vith more than enough to show that it
vas backed by the general public. The
meeting is to see if better roads from
the valley cannot be secured; to take
(.he initial steps for forming a county
agricultural society and to discuss any
V.ad all matters, tliat may properly come
before the meeting, for tJie advance
ment of the commonwealth. As tills is
tiie first meeting it is hard to predict
v.liat action will be taken, but it . is fair
to presume that a general public meet
ing will be called at an early date, at
an hour which will enable the farmers
to be present and participate in the de
liberations. The matters which will
come before these meetings are of vast
importance and it is hoped that all will
take a proper interest in them. To
those who live too far distant to attend
we would syggest that they send in
written communications containing
their views on questions of special inter
est to them. Any such communications
addressed to The Journal, until a secre
tary is elected, at least, will find its way
to the attention of the meetings. Now
is tlie time to act and let us act all to
gether. Let nothing stand in tlie way
of an earnest, united effort for the gener
al good. If we expect to prosper as we
should this is the way to get the matter
started. Don't wait for some one else to
make the start, but put your shoulder
to the wheel and push the chariot of
prosperity and wealth all over ' the lim
its of our county. The reports of the
growth of other places is all the evi
dence needed of what can be accom
plished by united effort and let us prolit
by the example of others.
Ex-Granger Van Wyck lias recently
purchased another piece of real estate in
Washington, paying therefor -". s0 ier
square foot, the highest pric e ever paid
for residence projierty in the national
capital. He is reported as intending to
build a much liner residence thereon
than the one he now owns in that city.
We are in receipt of a copy of tlie olli
cial program of the 7th annual Nebr aska
State firemen's tournament which will
tie held at Red Cloud July 16th to 19th
inclusive. Much work and exjiense has
been expended to make this tournament
the most interesting that lias ever been
held in the state, and it is exjiected tliat
a good time will be enjoyed by all.
The naval department has decided that
the flag containing forty-two stars will
not lie the legal flag until July 4, 1890.
The law says: "On the admission of a
new state into tlie union one star sliall
be added to the union flag, and such ad
dition shall take effect on the fourth day
of J uly next succeeding such admission."
Tlie result will lie that all flags used
on the government "buildings and vessels
will have but thirty-eight stars for about
a year longer.
In Fall River county, Dakota, the com
missioners have been doing a good deal
of ring work and the jieople are getting
tired of it and the prospect are that news
will come from that place in tlie near fu
ture that the county board is in rouble.
The Oelrichs Advocate is showing up the
actions of the board in a manner that
will cause the members thereof to put on
their thinking caps before they get the
county into debt much deeper. When
oflieers go about so far the people are
pretty apt to fall a halt, and that, too,
in a way in which the officers ivill understand.
W. C. Halsey's refignatiou as general
superintendent of the F. E. & M. V.
took effect on July 1st and C. C. Hughes
was appointed to fill the vacar.cy. Mr.
Hughes has been sujierintendnet of the
Black Hills division for some time and
his promotion to the general superin
tendency is a recognition of his ability.
Mr. Hughes' place as division superin
tendent has been filled by the appoint
ment of H. C. Mabanna, of Belle
Plaine, Iowa, who has been for several
years assistant superintendent of the C.
& N., and is said to thoroughly under
stand the important duties wliich de
volve upon him.
A few days ago a man in Fremont, by
tiiename of Benj. Josephson, fell to
beating his wife, and after being all
pounded up the woman drew a revolver
and shot the brute. Officers soon ar
rived and arrested the woman and phys
icians were called and cared for tlie man.
When in jail the woman expressed re
gret for her act, and the man became
TWy penitent when he found his wife
was in jail. The result was that tlie
woman was released from custody and
vent home to take care of her husband.
This is the Josephson family tliat figured
in the Haddock murder trial at Sioux
City some time since.
The editor of this paper received a
personal letter from a friend, a few days
since, in which tlie writer stated that he
id recently visited Congressman Laird
at Atlantic City and found him almost
a well man. The reports concerning Mr.
Laird have been very conflicting and it
will be welcome news to his many
friends in tbia part of the state to know
that he is practically well. Since the
Wifcentioowl Mr. Laird has returned

The Shah of Persia has made his much
talked of visit to London. Tlie authori
ties did all in their power to make the
occasion one to be remembered, but tlie
people did not look at it as a very grand
thing and treated the affair as a huge
joke. No attempt was made to decor
ate except the public buildings and tlie
crowds that lined the streets could find
nothing to cause them to cheer, but
greeted tlie distinguished visitor with
broad grins and remarks about' Ilia ap
pearance. The Sliah may have been
pleased with his reception, but if he wan,
lie must be easily pleased and in conse
quence must be a lenient ruler.
On last Tuesday the great fight for
the championship of the world occurred
between John L. Sullivan and Jake Kil
rain. The battle occured at Richburg,
about one hundred miles from Nev (Jr-
hleans. Seventy-five rounds were fought
When Sullivan was declared the victor.
It is reported that a vast amount of
money clanged hands. This fight ought
to settle Urn fact that Sullivan is the
greatest slugger on tkrth and stop the
brutal contests. It seems that such
matters grow in spite of all the laws

The Fremont Tribune has taken a con
tract, evidently, to boom Secretary of
State Laws as a candidate for congress
from the second district, to succeed Con
gressman Laird. We do not see the reas
on for this. If the republicans of the sec
ond district are wise they will continue
to send Major Laird to represent them,
at least, until the slate is redistricted.
Then, again, if there is to lie a cliange
