that the day will be generally observed

A legal sensation occurred at Rush-
ville last week by a juror in a case in
the district court charging the bailiff
with bribing the jury to secure a verdict
in favor of a man by the name of Cham
berlain. Judge Kinkaid at once ordered
an investigation and as he has a fashion
of getting at the facts, it is safe to say
that ample justice will .be done in the
Congressman Laws has introduced in
the House the bill to provide that real
estate sold under decree of the United
States court shall be advertised and sold
in the county and state w here the prop
erty is located. This is a copy of the
bill introduced in the senate by Senator
Manderson and certainly is a meritori
ous measure and it is to be hoped
that it will soon pass both houses and
become a law.
Van Wyelt is a candidate for governor
and will attempt to create a third party
with a hobby on which be can ride into
office. It is just such men as him that
make all attempts at united action on
the part of the farmers prove failures.
The idea of Van Wyck setting himself
up as a leader of the people is enough to
disgust all honest men. If a man is sin
cere in his pretentions as a friend to the
laborer and farmer it is all right to ac
cept, but for a chronic office seeker to
pose as the friend of the poor man looks
as if the voters of Nebraska were not
When the reports came in that people
in Scotts Bluff, Banner and otiier coun
ties were in destitute circumstances,
Gov. Thayer did not propose to be mis
lead in the matter so he made a trip to
that locality to learn the facts. He re
port that the people of that section of
the state are able to take care of them
selves. When action is needed Gov.
Thayer does not sit still and let matters
drag along but gets to the scene and
looks the matter up to his own satisfac
tion. The people of Nebraska are not
disheartened by a little hard times. They
may not have much of the fat of the
land to live on but they do not propose
to be beggars.
Some of the papers of the state are at
tempting to make a point against Attor
ney General Leese by showing how much
the state is paying the Leese family in
the way of salaries. It is all right to
state the facts in the matter but it is
not right to go beyond the facts. To as
sert that be or his daughter or brother
is getting such large salaries as claimed
is foolish and does no harm to Mr.
Leese, but instead will react on the person
who made the statement. It is certainly
true that Mr. Leese made assertions
which be failed to prove before the in
terstate commission and as a result be
has been lowered to quite an extent in
the estimation of a great many of his
friends. Had he done as he said he
would do at that time he would have re
ceived credit for it, but his failure has
caused many to doubt his sincerity in his
position as the true friend of the people.
For what be has done to correct wrongs
h should be duly honored, but if he is
pnJy attempting to make a show for the
purpose of being continued in office, the
people will certainly resent his actions.

The financial question of the county
has been creating a good deal of discuss
ion and tliought among the taxpayers
since the true state of affairs has been
looked up. There is a debt of home
twelve or sixteen thousand dollars to he
met by tbe taxpayers and the question
is how best to meet it and not keep the
credit of tbe county down to 50 or 60
cents on tbe dollar. The law provides
tliat the levy of eac h year shall he to
pay the expenses of tliat year and as
the outstanding warrants and claims fur
exceed the amount of funds which can
possibly be realized from the delinquent
taxes it is necessary to provide some
means by which to pay off tlie old debts.
In other counties parties holding claims
or warrants against tlie county have
brought suit and got judj-roent against
the county, and thus compelled tlie tax
payers to pay up the debts and also tlie
cost of legal proceedings. The outstand
ing warrants are drawing interest at the
rate of 7 per cent, and as many warrants
are issued as tlie law will permit and still
there are a large number of allowed
claims for which no warrants can be is
sued, and it is quite probable that unless
a way to pay off such warrants and
claims is provided, some one will begin
suit against the county and that will be
tlie signal for the same action on tlie
part of all those holding claims. The
result would le tliat a large amount of
costs would be made for tlie county to
pay and tlie taxpayers would be com
elled to meet the indebtedness at once
and the credit of the county would be
forced even lower than it is at present.
Tlie general disosition of the people op-
pears to be favorable to the voting of
funding bonds sufficient to place the
county upon a cash basis. A six per
cent bond could lie sold at par. at least,
and that would be a saving of one per
cent on the outstanding warrants and
avoid all costs tliat would be created by
tlie bringing of suits.
Bonds could be issued, payable in
twenty years and providing that a levy
be made during the last five years to pro
vide for paying off the bonds at matur
ity. This would relieve the taxpayers
from the burden, except the interest, un
til the county has developed and the peo
ple are better able to pay the taxes.
The Journal believes this to be tlie
best, and, in fact, tbe only way by
which tlie finances of Sioux county can
be placed on a cash basis and the credit
of the county redeemed, and also be
lieves that a majority of the voters and
taxpayers of the county will agree with
it in that respect It is not desired to go
into this matter without due considera
tion. The farmers have been discussing
tbe matter to quite an extent, and to as
sist in getting the matter fairly before
the people the columns of The Journal
are open for communications, eitlier fav
orable or unfavorable to tlie proposition
of funding the indebtedness of the county
A meeting was held at the Capitol
Hotel, Lincoln, a few days ago, at which
a manifesto was gotten up demanding
that tbe republican party take steps to
right all the wrongs existing in regard to
freight rates and all other things needed.
That part of it is all right, but in addi
tion to that the demand is made that the
republican state convention be held not
later tlian tlie second Tuesday in Au
gust and also that the republicans meet
in delegate convention at Lincoln in May,
to discuss the political situation. This
is signed by O. M. Nettleton, Chas. B.
Keckley, Wm. Leese, J. It. Sutherland
and J. R Ballard, as committee. The
meeting is said to have been an informal
one. It is a significant fact that most of
the gentlemen whose names are attached
to the document have been mentioned as
candidates for some office.
The call for a convention in May is not
advisable as at tliat time the farmers are
too busy to attend to political matters
and the result would be that the class
who are urged to be present or represent
ed could not be there. The holding of
the state nominating convention early in
August is also a bad idea for the same
reason and in addition to tliat it would
make so long a campaign that no one
except a rich man could afford to at
tempt to make the race. It would seem
much better to have candidates for
the various state offices announce them
selves early and let their fitness be dis
cussed before tlie convention is held.
Should the convention be held early and
men placed on the ticket who did not
suit the people tlie result would be de
feat at the polls, while if their qualifica
tions and integrity was investigated be
fore nominations were made, good se
lections could be made, and the republi
can party strengthened as a result, while
if the course outlined by tlie manifesto is
followed it cannot but endanger the par
For a number of years I have been

about two months. On the first of this

The last iaue of tlie organ of tbe f
a long article beaded '-Facts About Dis
trict Court" in which it dues some tiard
kicking against laving a term of dis
trict court and a grand jury. Tlie
claims of Hull to the county attorney
ship are upheld, and Mr. Hull is quoted
as saying tliat be has the most solemn
promises that if a term of court be held
here this month ample justice will
be done in the matter of recognizing tbe
county attorney rightfully and lawfully
entitled to hold tlie office. It may be in
ferred from tliat statement tliat Mr. Hull
has been communicating with tbe dis
trict judge and nothing more could be
expected than that that gentleman
would inform him tliat justice would be
done, for tliat is what the people elect
a district judge for. But for any one to
think that tlie district court would oust
Mr. Walker and put Mr. Hull in cliarge
of tlie business of the office is ratlier re
diculous. In his petition in the supreme
court Mr. Hull states tliat Walker is
now in tlie tiossssKion of the office and
performing the duties thereof. If lie i.s
to perform the duties of tlie office why
does lie go to the supreme court with
The organ of the gang brands those
who wish to see tlie affairs of tlie county
straightened up as anarchists and claims
that the grand jury is called for political
purposes, and speaks of the docket as al
most empty. Tliat is a peculiar state
ment. At the term of court last May
tliere were 43 cases, two of which were
against W. E. Patterson and two against
Geo. Walker for liliel, which were dis
missed, and if those cases were brought
for anything hut political purposes we
should like to lie informed what the ob
ject was. On the docket for the coming
term are 41 cases and not one of them
has been filed by the new officials, so
tliat if any of them are political cane?
they are ones liich were carried over
from last term.
Tlie county commissioners are called
im omjietent "amounting almost to im
becility," yet these officers have instruct
ed County Attorney Walker to look up
illegal expenditures and excess charges
of former officers and reiort to tlie
board. Walker has found about $2,000
of such exenditures and fees and lias
not got near through with his task yet.
The ring organ cites tliat no expert has
been employed to look up the records.
't is well known that the finances of the
county were in such a state that it was
necessary for the board to go very slow
ly until they got matters in shaie to pay
the running expences of the county.
The treasury depleted and a large float
ing debt hanging over the taxpayers
was a very discouraging prospect for tbe
new officers. But the records are in
such a condition tliat anyone who will
take the pains to look it up can And
gross errors, over charges and payment
of funds which tliere was no law to war
rent The entire article of tike fusion
ring organ is nearer an array of mis
statements than of facts and it looks as
if they did not desire an investigation by
a grand jury.
The fact is, that the people are desir
ous that an investigation be had and
they are becoming tired of su' h misrep
resentations as are frequently being
made by the Hrald, and it is to be hop
ed that after the matter is investigated
and wrong-doers punished that the gang
and its organ will be satisfied. The at
tempts of the Herald to bolster up the
acts of tbe old county officials do not
change the records and the only tiling
that can make it right is to punish those
who have wronged tlie public and prov
en untrue iu their official capacity, and
the people who stood by the principles of
right at the polls last November and
who came here on the Oth of January to
see that justice was done, will continue
to stand by their principles until the old
gang, who have put a heavy burden of
debt upon them, are made to feel that
ustice will be done and that the will of
the people is not defeated by any outfit
that has no other apparent use for the
public than to get all the money possible
out of it.
