The surveyors of the Sioux City AV Ogden railroad came here from the south part of the county yesterday, and in the aftemonn played a game of bull with our boys. Of course the strangers were defeated and a good time had by all. They are a nice lot of fellows and we hope they will come again. , The B. V M. arranged to take a few of the leading newspaper men of the state up into tlte region through which their line of road has just been built 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 quist, Hastings Democrat; Geo. F. Cor coran, York Democrat; A. B. Knotts, Plattsmouth Herald; John M. Cotton, Lincoln Call; H. V. Hathaway and C. H. Gere, Lincoln Journal; L. Weasel, Jr., and Fred Bensinger, Lincoln Courier; Col. Hyde, Lincoln News; A. C. Footo, Atchison Patriot; Bios Eaton, Kearney Hub; S. T.

McNeil, Kansas City Globe; & Wee 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 ety given this portion of the great oortb west in this mannir will be beoeflcUl to il aortiow of the locality. For farm loans go to B. H. Jones. A party of four from the State Uri varsity at Lincoln, passed through Har rison to-day ia search of botanical sped mens for the University. Tell your friends in the east that if they come here to locate they can get lumber a great cheaper than they can in most parts of the state. The sawmill men report a good supply of lumber on hand. A warrant lias been issued for the arrest of a German residing in the north part of the county, charging him with shooting a horse belonging to Aug. Wus selman. We did not learn the partic ulars. Hie judgment in tlie school district case against ex-Treasurer Lock wood was received by the clerk of the district court from Judge Kinkaid on Tuesdav. It is against Mr. Lock wood and is judgment for 9331.96 with interest amounting to $87.65 and costs $08. 10, making a total of 837.61. Lusk is preparing for a big time oh July 4th. A barbecue ia to be a feature of tlie occasion. As the base ball boys of Harrison have "done up" everything in the state of Nebraska, west of An drews, and are looking for more worlds to conquer, it might be that a game could be arranged with Lusk for that day. 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. We are informed that a man tar Laramie Peak wants a hundred men and teams to work for him. , It is about 60 miles from hew and he will have work for them for three or four months. Those of our farmers who have their crops growing and nothing to do may wish to avail themselves of such an op portunity to secure employment for a time. Some one has been making a raidsjo secure a supply of harness. On last Tburky night XBcOhadbaljra brible stolen from the barn on his farm, and on Friday night a set of harness complete, except bridles and one collar, were taken from the barn of Sheriff Reidy. If the purpetrator of such petty thefts is found it will not be very pleas ant for bim. 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 WW-WTffSfersrfnr"n' 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. A Reminder. We need money, expect soon to order more goods and then will need more money so everybody indebted to us will please settle at onee either by cash or se cured note. Ranch Supply House.
