The Sioux County Journal. PuHihed every Thursday. o SuU-riition Price, $2.00 1- J. Simiimus - Editor. F.ntorwl at the Hairi-scn post office & eo o: i rla., ikatter. 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 from tlie shock and petting ready for doin:; wluit the law savs tliey sidl 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 Ileorge O. Joa making aJiotlier ff fort to re-orgaui tlie old greenWk party. We sui--J the rag baby finan cial delusion laJ t-u.-l to exist, but it appears vhat seme folk t'U uiouro for it North Iakota i seriously considering the advisability of having tlie Wgi.-Jature of that state f ouist of a single house elected by a vote of the people. Now is a good time for tliat young sUte to try tliat kind of an exjierimeiit 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 toUhowU Harttap, Neb., to f 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 gainst it If the law an not enforced it would tea goon plan to repeal them foratpmnt tiny appear to be but HuCag stock. Tlie bloody Briti.sl.ers, it is said, liave put f'200.liH.0fl0 in Amerinui in vest ments since tlie first of tlie year, and will double the amount before ls wj ushered in. They want to put it here it will lie safe. In other words where it will be protected. j .. Wisner Chronicle: A gentlemanj prominent in tlie jiolitics of the state in- j forms us tliat Hon. L. I). Rielianls. of j Fremont, will enter tlie lists for the con gressional nomination next year in this district. Mr. Ricliards is a shrewd li tician,' a sterling republican, an untiring worker aud possesses every desired qual ification for an able representative in the National legislature. If he tek.s the position he will be a popular candi date and will make things lively in the third district Some of the iaers are trying to kick up a great row because Gen. ('. F. Man derson has been allowed a claim for lack .nsion amounting to about fl.'HlO, We do not notice tliat any of them claim tliat he did not do good service fr his country, nor do they set up the alle gation tliat the amount was secured by fraud. If Gen. Munderscn was entitled to tliat amount of tension, we do not know of any law by which he could lie ilefrauded out of his rights, and it is only a narrow minded writer that will at- "tcmpt to make politi-ul capital out of straight business transations.

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 there are a number of gentlemen, who might be induced to take the place, w ho have the ability to represent the eople fully as well as the gentleman the Trib une favors.
