The Aurora creamery cointiny has re
cently changed its name to the South
Platte creamery company, which takes
in four counties south of the Platte
river. The factory at Aurora is turning
out over 2,000 pounds of butter daily
the largest amount in its history.
Thubsday, July 9, 1891.
Lincoln is after the national encamp
ment of the G. A. R. in 1892. Tliere is
ho reason why it should not succeed io

all possible to help Lincoln win in the

In the beet fields at Norfolk it is esti

tons per acre. At the average price paid

the crop would bring the grower the

County Attorney Conley wrote to At-

pays, "That is the kind of an attorney
Conley is. He gives an opinion and
then looks up the law and authority
afterwards." The records of the courts
indicate that Conley looks op the law
before he goes into a case, as be does not

A farmer was fined 100 and costs in
the district court of Otoe county a few
days ago for furnishing liquor to a
habitual drunkard. It is singular that
men will furnish liquor to those to
whom the dealers refuse to sell. When
a man becomes so addicted to the liquor
habit that lie is refused drink by those
licensed to sell, a third party is doing an
injustice to the drinker and to the saloon
keeper and is also violating the law by
purchasing liquor for him.
The republican state convention of
Iowa passed a resolution endorsing the
city of Omaha as the most suitable
place for holding the next national re-
nuhliean convention. The claims of
Omaha for the convention are meeting
with a great deal of favor all over the
west There is a general demand by the
west tliat the convention be held west of
the Mississippi and Omalia is the only

It is reported that as soon as the state
board gets through with the Hastings
insane asylum investigation, it will take
up the affairs of the asylum at Norfolk,
on charges recently made. Tliat is the
proper thing to do. When cliarges are
made against an official in the proper
manner, an investigation should be
made and the cliarges sifted to the bot
tom. If the charees are found to be
true the official should be punished, and
if they prove false the vindication is to
the credit of the official,
The World-Herald attempted to create
a sensation a few days ago by proclaim
ing that Gov. Thayer had been pocketing
certain fees which came into his hands.
As soon as the Governor s attention was
called to the matter he promptly showed
that the charge was false, that paper
must be pretty hard up for sensational
stuff with which to fill its columns when
it has to resdrt id sv.ch extremes as that
Such petty assaults upon the chief exe

to show the narrowness of the party
The assertion of Walker id regard to
County Attorney Conley getting $7.50 in
the mandamus case is calculated to mis
lead the readers of his paper. There was
more than one mandamus case. The
case in regard to the assessment of im
provements on goternment land has
cost the county nothing, The manda
mus case in which the expenses were al
lowed was the ode iri regard to the
claims held by the Bank of Harrison.
Such base attempts to deceive his read
ers are highly commendable on the part
of Editor Walker.

shpr that the commissioners met as a

The reports as to the condition of
Secretary Blaine are to the effect ibat
the great statesman is rapidly nearing
the close of bis earthly career. His re
signation is said to have been written
some days ago and he has been arrang
ing the details of his affairs preparatory
to departure from this life. As the
great man lingers his approaching death
will be regretted by all, regardless of
party or nationality, and so long as
there is life, the hope will be entertained
that he will again rally and resume his
place as one of the foremost men of the
Editor walker tills the greater por
tion of the last issue of the Herald with
a lot of trash against the county com'
missioners, the county attorney, county
superintendent, Attorneys Holmes and
Sullivan and the county officials in gen
eral, and, of bourse; The Journal comes
in for its share. The f ict is that Walker
has "got it in" for all against whom lie
opens his mud-batteries. In June, 1889,
he was informed that he could not use
the columns of The Journal to vent his
personal spite! After the election in the
fall of 1889 be wanted to be deputy
county county clerk and because he was
not appointed be took offense at County
Clerk Lindeman. Because Judge Barker
was appointed deputy county clerk
Walker became jealous and hence he has
devoted a good deal of attention to the
Judge. In the fall of 1890 when H. T.
Conley was nominated for county attor
ney Walker's jealousy was again aroused
and so he proceeds to "wade into" Con
ley as a regular thing, t Again, Attor
neys Conley and Holmes are getting
their full share of the law cases and
Walker attempt to build up his own
law practice by trying to tear down the
standing of bis competitors,. , While the
fact that County Superinteadent South'
worth had the audacity, to order the
Herald stopped is grounds .sufficient for
Walker to make attacks on him. The
action of the commissioners in employ
ing aa expert accountant whose t report
shows that Walkec,drew more than be
was entitled to .while county attorney
affords a reason' for . him, to Attempt to

at Ravenna, Ohio, on tlie morning u.
July 3d. Twenty-one lives were lost
and twenty-four people maimed and in

man did not signal tlie freight train in
time for it to be stopped.
