The party left Lincoln on Saturday, June
14th, and was under the special care of
J. Francis, general passenger agent, and
A. C. Zeitner city ticket agent at Lin
coln and Dr. F. W. Tucker of Lincoln.
The following is a list of the members of
the party and the papers they repre
sented: Seth P. Mobley, Grand Island
Independent; J. A. Creeth, Hastings Ne
braskan; C. V. Cole, Beatrice Democrat;
A. C. Jordan, Beatrice Express; F. O.
Simmons, Seward Reporter; R. B. Wal

mi, Sr., guest of the road. On Tuesday
' the party arrived at Crawford on the re
turn trip and arrangements had been
made to stop there about three hours.
On the arrival of the train the party en
tered carriages which were in waiting
and were driven to Fort Robinson. . On
the return to Crawford they were taken
to Barron aV Souther's hall, where an
elegant banquet was spread. After do
ing justice to the good things, a number
of short speeches were made by members
of the party and citiaens of Crawford,
and at the appointed time the train left,
all feeling that they had been royally
treated. The trip was not mads to
boom the B. AM. road, but to giv the
repreesuUtivea of the press an opportu
nity to see what regions of undeveloped
country was opened for settlement.
There is no question but that the notori

The September term of the district
court will, without doubt, be the largest
and most important one ever held in tlie
county. Cases are being certified to
that count at a rate which will make a
much larger docket than was ever ready
at the convehing of court here. A large
number of the cases will be for jury
trial and will consequently make the
term in September quite protracted.

The board of county commissioners
have got their work on the assessment
books done, but have not yet received the
railroad valuation from the state auditor.
The assessment of the real and personal
property in the county shows a total of
r294.36.V86. Last year the F. E. A M.V.
railroad assessment was 9104,440 in
Sioux county, and the B. A M. in the
county is estimated at about 962,000,
bich would give a grand total of
9520,765.86. Tlie low valuation agreed
on by the assessors and the dropping of
improvements on claims not proved up
on holds the assessed valuation quite
low. If enough can be collected on that
sum to conduct the affairs of the county
the amount saved to the farmers by re
duction of assessment can be used to pay
their debts and Improve their farms.
It is time for the people of Sioux
county to take active steps toward or
ganizing an agricultual society. It is
necessary in order to organize under the
law to have not less than 8A0 paid into
the treasury. Now if fifty persons will
signify their willingness to become mem
bers of such a society and pay one dollar
each for a membership ticket, the matter
can be started,' or if half that number
will pay two dollars each for a member
ship ticket the law will be complied with.
All who wish to see an agricultural
society organised are requested to notify
8. H. Jones , Harrison, Neb'r., either by
letter or in person of their willingness to
take hold of the matter. In giving him
this information please state if you are
willing to pay either one or two dollars.
Putting money into an organisation of
this kind is a good business investment,
for an agricultural society can do more
to attract people to a county than any
thing else. It is to the interest of every
one to get m many people here as possi
ble for as soon as the land is all taken up
it increases the value of all the land
around it and the result ia that the prop
erty of every one is made more valuable.
New people also bring in capital and
furnish employment for the laboring
uses. A society once organised and
officer elected will be a power for good
to the county. It is hoped the people
will take hold of the matter in earnest,
and that double the number required by
law will notify Mr. Jones of their desire
to assist ia the formation of an agricul
tural society in Sioux county.

The result of the contest for the posi
tion of sergeaat-at-erms of the United
States senate was that ex-Cong ressiuan
Valentine, of West Point, Neb., was the
successful candidate. There were eight
candidates presented aed it is quite a vic
tory for Nebraska that one of her citiaens
was tlte choice of the republican mem
bers of tlie senate. Judge Valentine is
well qualified to All the position, his sit
years service as congressman from this
district giving him a large acquaintance
at the national capital. The selection
of Judge Valentine demonstrates the fact
that Nebraska senators have some stand
ing with their colleagues. He will as
sume the duties of his office on July 1st.
On Tuesday an alternative writ of
mandamus was placed in tlie bands of
Sheriff Reidy and served on the board of
county commissioners, issued by Judge
Kinkaid, commanding the board to order
the county clerk to issue warrants for
the amounts of various claims issued by
the old board, together with interest at
the rate of 7 per cent per annum from
tlte time such claims were allowed.
The date of hearing is fixed for June
24th at Chadron, as the district court
will be in session there at that time.
Attorney C. E. Holmes represents the
parties holding tlte claims, and the com
missioners will be represented by County
Attorney Walker, and some of the tax
payers and parties interested in the fi
nancial transactions of 1800 will be rep
resented by Attorney IL T. Conley.
This question has been discussed to quite
un extent during tlie past six or eight
months and this action will probably
settle the point as to whether the claims
are to be paid in rotation or Whether the
expenses of each year are to be paid out
of the levy of that year, and that too,
with little trouble and expense.
It is hoped the the county commis
sioners will take early action on a imm-;
ber of important matters. The redis
tricting the county for commissioner
districts is a matter which should be at
tended to at the earliest date possible.
It is also important that some changes
be made in the boundary lines of some of
the voting precincts in order that it may
be as convenient as possible for the voters
and also that an election may be held in
every wecioct in the coTMtr. Ki
the county can have an opportunity to
vote. It is also stated that some changes
in the polling places in some precincts
are desired. 11 these matters are attend'
ed to in time, the people will have an
opportunity to know of any chan
made prior to tne day or election. ' An
other matter which it would be well for
them to see to is the condition of the
cistern at the court house. A large cis
tern was fitted un and all that is needed
now is to be cleaned out and a cover put
over it and the connection made with the
spouting on the court house and a good
supply of water could be kept on in
ready for use in case of a fire or for
other use about the county building.
There would be little expense attaclied
to any or all of these arrangements and
there is no reason why they should not
be attended to.
We need money, expect soon to order
more goods and then will need more
money so everybody indebted to us will
