"ai lout, lhe commissioners have
the right to hold out. until the work is
done to their satisfaction. If this is
done and the commissioners insist on
(,'ettingagood job, a large amount of
work would need to be done on the two
larger bridges, fr the joints are in had
liaie. There is a chance for the timbers
of the truss to slip and then the strength
oi lhe bridge is gone. The rods whi
hold the truss together have only
large washer, instead of an iron plate,
sucn as we are used to seeing on bridge;
which reaches over the different parts of
me joint and leaves no chance to slip,
The plan of the bridges as on file in cons
ly clerk's olllce are very meagre, so that
the contractors had but little to guide
them, and we could find no record o:
an agreement which stilted that the
work should lie done in a good and work
man-hke manner. We found a bond
given by the contractors but it did not
contain that point, so it is only "subject
to the approval of the board." Now
that the finances of Sioux county are so
low it is no more than right and justice
to all that the county board insist that
the county receive full value for every
dollar jiaid out. At the meeting of the
hoard last Monday the Knott bridge
was accepted and also the one at Grew
ell's, togetlier with the Ave culverts.
Hie bridge across Antelope is to be so
clanged as to comply with the survey,
and the Montrose bridge is to receive
more supports. There apiears to have
been a little negligence on the part of all
and it is to'lie hoped that for the general
good more care will be exercised in fu
ture. Too much care cannot lie used

Roads from the Valley.
r.ver since the writer lias been ac
quainted with Sioux county the question
of a good road from the north part of the
county to Harrison has been discussed,
A short time liefore we moved to Harri
son, during a business visit to Omaha
we culled at the headquarters of the F.
E. & M. V. railroad and in our conversa
tion with the officials- we mentioned the
road matter and asked if such a thing
could be done as to get the management
to assist iu getting n good wagon road
across the pine hills. We were informed
that such work was out of the general
line, but they desired that we look the
matter up and report to them after we
had an opportunity to see what was
ueedwf. -A few weeks ago we forwarded
to headquarters a map showing the lav
of the land, the course of the line of rail
road and the elevation of tlie country
On last Friday P. Whitney, president
of the townsite department came to Har
rison and spent some time in looking up
the condition of affairs. On his return
to Chadron he met Capt. Ainsworth
chief of engineers, and talked the matter
over with him, and next morning he tel
egniphed us that Capt. Ainsworth and P.
E. Hull were coming up on the train and
for us to meet them at depot. The re
sult was that the chief surveyor was in
structed to stop here on his return from
Douglass and do the work we desired
It was thought that it could be accom
plished in a couple of days.
The surveyors arrived on Monday and
that evening took a drive down Sow-
telly canyon and up over the road laid
out bv trie county commissioners. On
Tuesday a good deal of work was done
with a view to getting a road up Sow
belly a part of the way and then out a
side canyon, as recommended by Sheriff
Pfost. Here a road could be made with
grade of five feet to the hundred feet,
but it would run through a good deal of
rock so that it would be considerable ex
pense. the otner places were noi looseu
up on account of lack of time. The sur
eyors had to go to Chadron on Wednes
day to do some work and Mr. Chapman
was not satisfied with what lie had ac
complished and is in hopes of gettin,
orders to return soon and look the matter
up in detail.
The question of a good road is of vast
importance to the jsjople of this place as
well as those in the north part ot the
county, and a grand effort should be
made to get one. If the company show
a disposition to assist in the matter the
people ought by all means to unite and
do all in their power to second the advan
ces of the company. It matters not
where the road comes so that we get a
good one. We will give no opinions in
regard to the various routes but will
wait until we get a report of the work
of the surveyors and then tell our read
ers just how they look at it. If the com
pany is going to put any money into it
they will want to put where it will do
the most good, and the people of Sioux
county can well afford to let them have
their own way so long as they pay for it.
The fact that no public money can be
had for this purpose until after July 1,
1MIM), puts the tact liefore us that the
money must be raised by private sub
scription. We hope the jieople north of
the hills will take tlie matter in hand
and get organized so as to tell what they
will do, and that the business men of
Harrison will begin to take hold of the
matter with a view to putting money
into tlie work whenever and wherever
the railroad people decide. . Now is the
lime to riutle and all lUstle together, 4
