Entered at the Harrison post office as sec
ond class matter.
On and after next Saturday. July 4th,
the legal Hag of the United States will
contain 44 stars, one for each of the
newly admitted states being added at
that time.
Not many years ago the land around
Grand Island was not considered worth
much, but the farmers have stuck to it
and the result is that it has developed
into a rich country. Although but 24
miles square, the recent assessment of
Hall county rolls up a total of $3,653,
147. Notwithstanding the drouth of
last year, real estate in that county has
Increased 9301,637 over last year, inat
snows what toe development or a county
will do. It will be remembered that
there is a beet sugar factory at Grand
County Attorney Conley wrote to At
torney General Hastings tat some au
thorities bearing on the cancellation of
claims and warrants to offset the short
age of the ex-county officials. Gen.
Hastings looked tip the authorities as
requested and Wrote Mr. Conley that in
his opinion the actiod takes by the coun
ty board was legal. Besides being at
torney general, George H. Hastings is
recognized as one of the best lawyers in
the state, and his opinion on the point is
pretty good authority.
the board of public lands and build
ings is making it decidedly interesting
for the officials of the insane hospital at
Hastings, and there will doubtless be
some removals for cause. The board as
at present constituted seem to have a
pretty good faculty of going to the very
bottom of an affair which they start to
investigate. It is; always necessary to
keep a close watch of the methods of
contracting state institutions and those
to which people bereft of reason are con
signed should be watched the closest.
Law, justice and humanity all demand
that snth unfortunates be treated with
crae consideration.
Terrible storms, causing floods, visited
northwestern Iowa and eastern Nebraska
last week. A number of lives were lost,
railroad tracks and brie washed out,
crops destroyed and many thousands of
dollars' worth of other property de
stroyed. Hundreds of families were ren
dered homes, aK they swept being
swept away, and calls for' financial aid
from the outside world have been issued
from some places. The. entire town of
Moville, Iowa; was washed out with the
exception of one hbn'se. In. this state a
good deal of damage Was done,, in some
places, West Point losing $ 15,000 worth
if property; - .

make IS.W9.17. And
Wheeeas, The board of county commis
sioners are only allowed to issue warrants

vlx : District court expenses, salaries, sta

rison be reduced to the assessment of 4.7

lit in levying one mill for road purposes ou
account of the provision in the statutes that

dividual valuations being small, on which t
levy of one mill would amount to only a few
cents, and the same being required to be di
vided into several funds, and there being
only one mill available for road and bridge
purposes, and if the same be applied for
bridge purposes it will be of more benefit to
the county in general. Therefore be it

dollar of the valuation of Sioux county.
