climatic conditions of this county. As
the press of Nebraska in general is noted
not only for its enterprise, but its justice
in discussing matters of public interest,
and the Stutt? Jvurnul especially, I ven

article referred to:
I am an humble citizen, bora in hum

of Sioux. It seems rnv statements serious

tiendescripts, neither one holding any
land in the county or any utieucuiulkred
property whatever, one a poverty-strick

a politician and au editor. Both of these
fellows claiming to be friends of the
farmer, sought admission to the farmers'
alliance, but were rejected on general
principles and for the further reason the

I have been here some three years, and
the views I have given in regard to our
agricultural conditions are solely the re
suit of my experience and observation.
in conclusion, J beg to suggest to our
legislators would it not be a wise pro
vision to make au appropriation for free
transportation to some who have claim.-
but cannot farm for want of means, to
some point in the state here they may
be able to get employment?

J. E. AnxER.
The bill providing for the Australian
ballot system at all elections except
school district officers outside of cities,
has passed both houses and will doubt
less soon become a law. Tbe legislature
of 1891 is entitled to the thanks of every
honest citizen-of Nebraska for that law.
There will be no repetition of the vote of
Whistle Creek in 1887, or of Running
Water precinct in 1888.
A move is being made to have the
records of the various state offices exam
ined. The result of an investigation of
the records of the various counties which
have employed an expert for that pur
pose has been beneficial to the taxpayers,
ft is not always that the officials, past or
present, have been dishonest, but errors
have occured, and it is no more than just
that tbe records of the state officers be
subjected to inspection. The records be
long to the public and hence the public
has a right to know in what condition its
servants perform the duties devolving
upon them. No honest official will ob
ject to an inspection of the records of his

twenty-seven in all, out of a population
of 2,500. Not one of these twenty-seven
men have followed farming exclusively
since couiinK here, borne of then
brougnt no teams when they came, but
have none now, neither have they cow
hog or farming implements. And this is
the body of so-called farmers that seek
to crush one for simply telling the truth.
Some say the truth should not lie told
at all times, but I believe where the gen.
eral interest is concerned it fchould al
ways lie told and plainly, too, regardless
of whom.,, it displeases or whose pet
schemes of boom it hurts.
You are mistaken in saving there has
been a bitter warfare raging between the
farmers and cattlemen in this county.
1 here never has been any, nor ij there
any at present. A few lazy loafers who
do not own a dollar's worth of unencum
bered property, pay no taxes and never
soil their hands with honest labor, do all
in their power to stir up strife and send
abroad a false impression to effect legis
lation, favoring schemes to bring them
bread and butter to the ruin of others.
There are no cattle barons in this coun
"y anu no ouster county murderers, un
less it is he that wears a high lint to
shield his softening brain. Since the leg'
islation of 1889 regarding the herd law,
over $100,000 of taxable property went
out of the county into adjoining states
Not one-tenth of this amount has been
replaced by immigration, '
is tins au. men oi means uesinng

ness to a limited extert were forced to
felinquish their plans by reason of un
wise legislation effecting the stojl; inter
est. I am denounced for my views coit
cerning the state luriiisiiing seed to toe
Settlers and provisions to the destitute.
We all need seed to be sure, and it is no
discredit to a maa to apply for it to u
reasonable amount so long as the state
says try it once more; it costs you noth
ituc but your time and labor, even if fail
ure comes again.
The past is a good criterion by which
we may judge of the future. As the past
nas been a failure in agriculture in this
county, so in our judgement will be the
lutitre ana soon or late those who now
denounce us for telling the truth will be
forced to admit we were correct in our
judgement.. - , '
I am cbarged wi& a attempt to in
jure my couuty because I tell the truth.
Now,! charge my slanderers with in
flicting more damage upon this county
than Indian scares or drouth when thev
advertise falsely that our people are des
titution and suffering. There is not a
case of destitution in this county, yet the
high hat dudes ask the neonle to

to the government to plact them on par
with the Indians and feed them. He-,,
are some cases of destitution. n

oe rapid growth of the state of Ne

crease of litigation and a cry is going up
lor an increase of judicial districts and
an increase in the number of judges in
some of the districts. There is a stroug
belief that a good deal of urging is. being
done by men who are desirous of receiv

A number of the present judges are ob-
Metiqg to an increase such as is asked,
They advocate some reforms in court
practice which would do away with a
great deal of delay. Every time the case
is called and not tried costs tbe taxpay
era something. There is a general feel

be put on delays and continuances iQ
