'The weather this week has been se
verely coltl and a good deal of snow has
fallen. It lias cleared up now and the
snow will soon disappear. No complaint
can be made of the weatlier for but few
cold days have been exjierienced during
the winter. The weather in Sioux coun
ty will average up about as good as 'it
does in any locality. The people are

A man by the name of Anderson liv
ing a couple of miles east of town on
tle F. E. &. M. V. road attempted to
jump from the east bound freight train
on last Saturday afternoon. He did
jump frow tlte train, but in doing so got
pretty badly used up. The company's
physician from Lusk came down on the
evening passenger to attend him, and
he is in a fuir way to soon recover, but
it will probably lie some time before he
will attempt to jump a moving train
to save walking a few miles.
A special train passed up the Elk
horn last Sunday, with a number of the
officials of the road on board. The indi
cations are 1 1 nit preparations are being
Dilute to begin building operations in
the near future. Tho fact is the com
pany has too much invested in this line
to permit it to stop where, it is, and it is
also quite certain that they will wont
to take care of the buisness which will
be created by the development of the
oil and mining regions weM. of here, As
soon as that buisness is opened it wUI
give employment to a large numlwr of
people who will bo non-producers, and
the result will tw that a market will be
created for the products of Sioux county

Last week a portion of the material
from the Herald was taken to a point in
South Dakota where a newHptper is to
be established by W. H. Davis. We did
not learn the name of the place but un
derstand that it is on the B. & M. line.
O. Guthrie informs us that his
brother-in-law, J. W. Robinson, will lie
here either the last of this week or the
first of next, with two carloads of stock
and goods to improve the land be hoe tax
ken near Harrison. This is another indi
cation of a good number of new settlers
coining here this season.
We are informed that S. A. Beers
contemplates returning to Sioirx county
in tlie near future to make his residence
on his farm in the north part of the
county, The bright prospects for the
future of our county cannot help at
tracting many people hither in the near
future. Tliere is room for all who wish
Commissioner Grove lnlorms us
that he did not say that the appointment
of Geo. Walker was against his wishes,
as the Herald says he is credited with
saying. Mr. Grove told Walker that
C. E. Holmes was his first choice, but
as that gentleman did not want it he
was for Walker. Commissioner Grove
also says he has no occasion for being
ashamed of his cource in the matter.
There has been a good deal of talk of
late in regard to the collection taxes.
The taxes which are to lie pushed for col
lection are those for 1887 and 1888.
These can be collected by distress pro
cess, but no such action can be luul on
the tuxes of 1889. The personal taxes of
1889 are delinquent now, but the only
penalty attached is tlie interest fixed by
the Statute. It is quite likely that
every one liaving delinquent taxes on the
records against him will be notified by
the treasurer in the near future, but no
distress warrants will he issued against
any one until they have fair notice and
an opportunity to pay, and then only for
taxes for years prior to 1889. Of course
if a person is attempting to niove his ef
fects from the county without first set
tling with the treasurer, be need not be
surprised to see an officer after him.
In the attempt of Hull to get posess
ion of tlie Nebraska Reports belonging to
the office of county judge, the case be
gan before Justice Maine fell through
because the officer who served the paers
failed to make any return of the same.
In tlie case lie fore Hunter when it came
or. Thursday, Hull asked for a jury and
the cose was set for hearing Saturday,
Feb. 23d . On that day the parties re
paired to the residence of the justice und
the jury was there, but when Walker
informed them that was a legal holiday
the court was not opened nnd the result
was that the case fell through. All
that was accomplished in the entire pro
ceedings was thai Walker was compelled
to niiike two trips to Bodarc and also
in company with Judge Barker had to
appear in the justice court here. It is
quite evident that all that is intended
lv these suits U to ninko fho ollicials all
the trouble the' run, nnd it would ap
pear that there ought to be some
mtthod of putting a check on such proceedings.

A few dayjs ago The Journal re
ceived a letter from the superintendent
of the B. & M. in regard to the rate on
sugar beets from Sioux county to Grand

that no rate has yet been mode, but they
assure us that they will certainly make
a reasonable rate for moving the crop.

On last Monday morning Clerk of
the District Court Lindeman received
word from the district judge ordering a
grand jury to lie called for the April
term of the district court for Sioux
county. This is what the people of the
county have been waiting for some time.
There are a great many matters awaiting
the investigation of a grand jury and it
is quite likely that some of those who
are accused of having done crooked work
in either public or private matters will
be well investigated.
