Tbe fotiowing is by a corraaptiadnt of
the Seward AVaJf, living in one of tbe
outlying ptacinrts sad abows the rasult
of tlie township organimtion system:
'If the delinquent taxes were paid, it
would make a big difference in the price
of county warrants, and if township or
ganisation could be ahoJIahed, the coun
ty might stand some chance of getting
out of debt"
There are now about 750 cases in the
supreme court of this state. Each vol
ume of the state reports contains on an
average 185 cases and therefore there are
enough cases ia court to make six vol
umes of reports and two volumes repre-
ssots tbs work of three judges for a year
so that a case taken to tbe supreme
court now, unless it was quo-warranto.
mandamus or injunction, would not be
daradad until three vears hence. It w
when matters are in such a condition
that corporations and capitalists carry
tbeir cases to the supreme court and by
the long delay virtually freexe out the
noor tartias who have had occasion to
become involved in litigation with them.
It is certainlv essential to the interest
of justice to the masses that the number
of judges of the supreme court be in
creased so that cases taken to that court
may be decided without a delay of years.
The legislature of 1801 will have tbe
railroad problem to face in about tbe
same shape that it was found by that of
1880. It is certainly the duty of tbe
next session to Drovide for a board of
railroad commissioners to be elected by
tbe people and wbo will not be compelled
to do such work in addition to that now
devolving upon state officials. A man
may be a roost excellent clerical officer,
one wbo would attend to the dut ies of
any of the state offices acceptably, but
because be did not do just as they waot
him to as a member o( tbe state board
of traoHDortatioo. a bowl is made to
lack him out and the state loses a val
uable officer. If the railroad commis
sioners were elected by the people men
could be selected for their fitness for
the spocial work of that position. As it
is now, there is one clam who want the
board of transportatioo to be cranky

It is a poor rule that will not work
both wavs. and from tbe above rule the
following may be deducted:
D. P. Davis, the "Mviaory" member
of the Herald company and the gang
candidate for county attorney, was
charged last fall with having "sold out
body and breech" at tbe stqatorial con
vention two years ago. This he has
never denied, and so it is fair, according
to the theory of the gang organ, to con
sider that he did sell out This same Da
vis has been charged with taking from
the county about $J00 more for insuring
tbe court bourn than other agents would
bare charged. He has never denied it
and therefore, according to toe gang or
gan's way of judging a man, be is guilty
of thataleo.
The editor of the gang organ baa been
charged with, doing double primary work
but July and baa never denied it and so
according to bis way of putting such a
case, be is to be taken as guilty, and as
the penally or that kind of work is a
term in the peniteutiary, tbe editor of
the gang organ on bis own theory must
be guilty of a crime.

A petition signed by ffty legal vo
ters, (just tbe number required by law)
was presented to the board of county
commissioners at their meeting oa tbe
7th iast, asking that tbe question of
township organization bs submitted to
the voters of Sioux county at the next
general election which will be Nov. 4,
1890. The board conavlered tbe matter
and decided that tbe legal notice could
not be given for tbe question to be voted
on at that time and so it was decided not
to submit it Commisaioners Weir and
Oreen voted against submitting it and
Commiianonej Grove voted in favor of
doing so. It was simply a question of
time as the law is mandatory on tbe sub
ject and could tbe matter nave been put
legally before tbe people it would have
been done. We do not know tbe object
of thus springing that question on tbe
people. It is to be hoped that Sioux
county will not adopt tbe township or
ganisation system until the laws govern
ing that method are very materially
changed. Tliere are a number of coun
ties in the state that are working under
the present law, and we do not know of
one where it is giving satisfaction. It is
exnensive in a number of ways. One
item of expense is tiiat of collecting of
taxes. The town treasurer collects taxes
and receives the same pay therefor that
is provided for tbe county treasurer, and
he turns the money over to the county
treasurer who receives tbe same fees as
be does when he collects the money di
rect from the taxpayer. 80 that it costs
iust twice as much to collect the taxes
as it does under tbe coramiasioner syi
tern. Then there is a supervisor for
each town, who is a member of tbe
county board. That would make,
Sioux county is now divided, fourteen
members of tbe county board. Ttiey
receive the same pay as commissioners,
three dollars a day and mileage. That
would make the per diem of the board
amount to 942.00, and tbe mileage would
be something which would appall the
taxpayers of the county. A sujiervisor
from Sheep Creek or Snake Creek pre
cinct would have to travel forty or fifty
mites to reach tbe county seat and where
would enough money come from to pay
him? The eroes amount of taxes this
vearin Sheen Creek precinct does not
rf a .
amount to enough to pay the assessor,
and if it cost double what it now costs
to collect them and a supervisor had to
be paid also, it Would take quite an
amount of money out of the taxpayers
or the other parts 01 trie county 10 maxe
un the deficiencv. The writer lived in a
county which adopted township organi
sation. At tbe time tbe change was
made the finances of the county were in
rood shape, and warrants were cashed
by tbe treasurer as soon as issued. Af
ter the township system had been in
vocrue a couple of years the funds began
to run low, and a little later warrants
were beiiur registered and not paid for
waqt of f rnds. a9 ld t a discount
We do no. bilieve there is a county in
tbe state w Iters tbe township organisa
tion system is in force, Inst is in a goon
financial condition. There is a system
