The church services at the South
worth school house have been postponed
from the 13th to the 20 inst. All are in
vited to Iw present at the latter date.
E. A. Weir is liaving a large portion
of his farm just east of town fenced, and
will put down a well and erect a wind-
the sture.
The entertainment recently given by
the boys, was so well received tliat they
liave determined to give another of a
similar character on the 30th. The pro
gram will be given later.
The cold wave came down from the
northwest on Monday night and quite a
quantity of snow fell and the high wind
proceeded to toss it about in great shape,
but spring is again with us.
From the way some of the gang
kick about the remarks made by the
.iournai, last week relative to the village
election, one would infer that such re
marks struck close to them.
Some of the boys have been practic
ing on brass instruments of late. Why
not reorganize the band and practice for
a purpose. The instruments are in the
town and there is plenty of musical tal
ent. In the qno warranto case in the Su
preme court of Hull vs. Walker, the
motion of Walker to dismiss, was over
ruled and he will file an answer. The
contestants have agreed upon W. H.
Fanning, of Crawford as referee and tes
timony will be taken before him at some
date in the near future.
A new post-office has been established
in Sioux county, at the residence of
Commissioner Green, in Running Water
precinct, with Mrs. Green as postmis
tress. The office was established through
the efforts of Senator Manderson, and
will be duly appreciated by the settlers
in that locality. In the past, they have
bid to go about thirty miles to get mail.
This is the second post-office in the south
part of the county within a few weeks.
TTne arrangements are about com
pleted to get the debt which lias been
hanging over tlie M. E. church so long
fixed up. A loan has been negotiated so
that the organization will have a much
better footing. In this matter, Rev.
Lusk has been very diligent and has had
a good many difficulties to overcome,
but he has succeeded, wit. tlie aid of
Chaplain, of New York, and his
efforts should be appreciated by all in
terested in the welfare of the church.
Quarterly meeting will occur two weeks
from next Sunday, April, 27th.
It appears that Sioux county has
never been supplied with the necessary
government field notes and plats to en
able the surveyor to establish a legal cor
ner. This puts matters in rather a had
shape for all the surveying that has been
done will have to be done again after the
proper plats have been secured, so as to
verify the location of the corners. The
county board will no doubt be called up
on to get the documents as the boundar
ies of real estate are of too much import
ance to be permitted to remain in uncertainty.
For farm loans go to S. 1L Jones.

A good many entries for land are
being contested in Sioux county. It is
rejwted that numerous entries have
leen made in fictitious names, so that
money could be obtained for the relin
quishment, but the settlers are investi
gating such mutters and securing rights
by contesting.
In a private letter to one of our cit
izens, Judge Kinkaid stated that he
would he in Harrison on next Monday
morning so as to be ready to open court
bime A.fMl.lTnuaiy
terested should lie sure to be present by
9 o'clock a. m. on Tuesday so that the
business of the court need not be d"layed.
During the past week tfie journal
otllce has been unusually crowded with
job work ami we have been obliged to
devote a part of the time needed on the
paper to job work in order to meet the
demands of our patrons. This oilice is
rapidly gaining a reputation for doing
first class job printing of all kinds and
we hope to continue to merit a literal
patronage in this line. Come and see us
when in need of any thing in this line.
The minstrel entertainment on last
Thursday evening was a decided success
in every respect. There was a large
attendance and a great deal of fun. The
jokes and hits were given and received
in the best of humor. Those who took
part feel well satisfied with the result
and those who attended express them
selves as well repaid. The music by the
Harrison orchestra added to the pleasure
of the evening. After the close of the
minstrel performance, dancing was in
order and kept up until a late hour,
The arrangement of the railroads to
ship In grain for seed and feed for the
settlers in the new counties free of
freight, Is being taken advantage of by a
great many of the farmers. When they
can get corn for fifteen or sixteen cents,
it proves a great saving to them, and
the liberality of the railroads will be
duly appreciated by them. The same
thing is being done for the farmes of
Dawes, Box Butte and other counties
which are just being settled. The pros
pects are that it will not be necessary to
ship grain into Sioux county for the in
dications are that a good crop will be
harvested at harvest time.
A few days ago, an execution was
issued by H. Merri field, justice of the
peace, against George Walker to satisfy
a judgement of about H0. The papers
were placed in the hands of Constable
Columbia of Bodarc precinct, and he pro
ceeded to the residence of Mr. Walker
and took something over fifty head of
cattle and a span of horses. It appears
that the stock belonged to Mrs. Walker,
the brand being registered and adver
tized to that effect Mrs. Walker reple
vined the stock in an action begun in the
district court and Sheriff Reidy took the
cattle and returned them to the owner.
It looks as if this was another plan of
tlie gang to harass County Attorney
Walker for no other apparent reason
than to keep him in hot water so as to
prevent his giving his attention to his
official duties. It is a queer proceeding
that the property of one person should
be taken to pay the debts of another and
it is pretty apt to become interesting for
the officer who did the work, unless he
is protected by a good indemnity bond.
Weir & Co. received an immense in
voice of thread a few days ago.

Clerk Lindeman is being painted in nice

O. A. Garten last week. Everythiner is

Is tlie county becoming populated.
Let every one see how many new-
settlers they can induce to come to
Sioux county between now and Janu
ary 1, 1891.
Andrew Procunier, of Little Cotton
wood has become tired of bachelor life,
and lias taken unto himself a wife. His
friends wish him much happiness;
On account of the storm on Tuesday
the mail from Montrose did not arrive at
Harrison until lute and did not start on
the return trip until Wednesday morn
ing. It is reported that the war on White
River has again broken out lietween the
Shay and Mason families. It is to be
loped that ah end will come to these dif
ficulties after a while.
J. B. Bradley Was in Harrison on
Saturday. He says he has his wheat all
in and tlie ground is in excellent condi
tion, so that it will take but a few days
for the grain to sprout.
A boiler formerly in use at Fort Lara
mie was taken to Fort Robinson, pass
ing through here the first of tlie week.
The men in charge of it report it a hard
thing to haul across the country.

Deputy CoUnly Treasurer S. H. Jones
tried the civil service examination and
the reort from Washington stiites that
he passed a satisfactory examination.
Mr. Jones did not do this with the expec
tation of securing appointment, but sim
ply to see what the examination was,
but should he lie appointed to a position
the government would secure a good
man. .
H. T. Merriam was In Harrison on
Monday and called at our office, He re
ports that his vJheat is up and growing
nicely. Mr. Merriam is one of the best
gardeners and small fruit growers in the
norths, t' sad -fcsa i -sees, nsritty
fruit already started. ' He says they are
all doing finely and tliat ho believes
strawberries will do exceedingly well in
this locality,
Every one who has mentioned the
subject of county finances to us, express
themselves in favor of getting on a cash
basis as soon as possible, and all recog
nize that the only way to do that is to
vote bonds enough to pay olf the float
ing debt of the county. If it can be done
prior to the time of making the levy
there is no reason why a reduction in the
levy could not be mode. It would be a
good plan if the taxpayers would get up
petitions asking the county commission
ers to submit a bond proposition at once,
large enough to pay off all outstanding
indebtedness at the time of issuing the
bonds. Then the matter could be settled
and when the levy is made it can be
made as low as the actual needs of the
county demand.
Tlie county commissioners will meet
to-morrow (Friday) for the transaction
of county business. County Attorney
Walker has been devoting considerable
time to getting his report ready. The
report will not be complete, but will
show that a large amount of county
funds have been misappropriated, and
will place the commissioners in posses
sion of facts which will enable them to
give him further instructions. It iw
quite evident that it will be necessary to
employ an expert in order to get the
matter settled so that it will be satisfac
tory to the people. As it is now the
people cannot know just how the mat
ter stands, or how much they have been
defrauded out of by unscrupulous offi
cials and hangers-on. It is quite likely
that there will be some prosecutions
For a number of years I have been
subject to violent attacks of inflamma
tory rheumatism which generally lasted
about two months. On the first of this

Balm and 'it relieved me almost instant
