The editor of the Herald kicks because
the records of the commissioners were
not published sooner and claims that it
was done so that bills would not be ap

Editor Walker says that Conley gave
IrsShay ten dollars to leave the coun

"Yes we said so, and we dare you to
make us prove it." All we have to say
jn the matter is if he has any proof let
him' produce it, for if Conley is guilty of
dishonorable acts we want to know it,
and the people want to know it, and if
he has proof that any other official has
been guilty of dishonest or dishonorable
act prove it, but the people will want
more than the word of the editor of the
Herald for proof.
The Bee of last Sunday published a
table showing the assessed valuation of
all the counties in the state and the es
timated actual valuation, bank deports
per capita, population, area in square
miles, average price of land "pel acre,

placed at $2,999,700, bank deposits show
$486 per capita and the value of farm
land is put at from $5 to $15 per acre.
The total valuation $1,585,160,300, and
the bank deposit per capita is $47.66.

The republican state central commit
tee met at Lincoln last week and fixed
the time for the state convention for
Thursday, September 24th. Lincoln was-
selected as the place to hold the convec
tion. No proxies are to be admitted.
The representation is to be based on the
vote for Geo. H. Hastings, attorney gen
eral, giving one delegate for each 150
and one at large from each county. It
would have served Omaha right had the
vote for governor been taken as a basis
for then a reduced representation would
have fallen to Omalia to repay for the
treachery to Richards.
that it did not seem to him that the
trend of public opinion was in favor of
such action. In that tlte chief execu
tive was about right. Tliere are a mini
berof vacancies in tlie membership of
the legislature which would have to be
filled by special election before an extra
session could be convened and it i ex
tremely doubtful if anything like a just
and equitable railroad law could be
passed by the present members of the
leislature. Then tliere is the state board
of transportation hich has the power
to do that work and if they liave Ute
interests of the' the people and the fu
ture success of tlie republican party at
heart, they will take prompt action in Ue
matter.' The railroad managers sliould
see that it is to their interest to get the
rate question adjusted. All admit that
a reduction shonld be made and if it is
not done, the people will become desper
ate and force extreme laws to be passed,
and extreme measures should always be
avoided if possible.

The state central committee passed no
resolutions on the railroad freight ques
tion because it was informed that the
board of transportation was at work on
the matter. The board has it in its
power to greatly assist the party ott the
way to victory this fall if it will estab
lish rates that are just to the people and
to the railroads. The masses do not
want rates that will suit the howlers and
ruin the railroads, and simple justice

'The national birthday of 1891 in Ne
braska witnessed a large number of
gatherings different from those of any
former 4th of July assemblages, in that
they were strictly political meetings.
Many of the reports indicate that they
lacked enthusiasm and in some cases
ere gecidedly flat. It is to be regretted
that the anniversary of the great act of
declaring the independence of the colo
nies should be used as a time for a polit
ical rally. Such a course will not tend
to imbue the rising generation with such
a spirit of patriotism as was displayed
by the heroes of the war of independence.
Independence day should be one of re
joicing that our forefathers established
Ihe goyernmept, wljile party work
should be done op ofher days.
In the last issue of the Herald Editor
Walker comes out in an article over his
signature in which he tries to explain
his course in attacking the county offi
cials, etc ' He says be does not wish to
enter into a personal controversy with
the editor of thupapajv Why, of course,
he does not The columns Of toe Herald
since Mr. Walker has been editor will
prove to any one that he does not want
a personal controversy. He says that if
be has written anything lie cannot prove
be has laid himself liable. If he can
prove that the county officials have been
guilty of fraud and robbery, why does
be not bring action and prove it? He
would certainly be treated as well as he
was by his newspaper partner, A. Mc
fiipley, and his associate county com
missioners, when he brought the im
peachment proceedings against his pres
ent law partner, E. U. Satterlee, when
that individual was county attorney in
I860. Mr. WalktT is modest He only
olaimi that the articles he wrote for The
JoCKtAL elected the present county . offl

any personal spite on the present county
officials. That is one truthful state

a snow visited tsiair a lew days ago
and a young man connected therewith
coaxed a young girl by the name of
Maggie Heath to follow off the show
with. him. They were arrested at a
neighboring town and taken back, when
the fellow was allowed to go he insisted
on taking the girl with him. Some of
the citizens of the place decided that
eggs would be good to administer in the
case and the man was given twenty-five
minutes to leave town and he took the
hint and left , When a man gets so low
that he will attempt to entice a young girl
to leave her home and enter on the path
to ruin, eggs are altogether too mild.
Tar and feathers or a ' necktie party j
would better serve the purpose, for!
there is no law which will properly reach
such contemptible wretches. . .
four men convicted of murder were
executed at Sing Sing, N. Y., a few days
ago under the law substituting electri
city for banging. The law in regard to
the secrecy of executions is also very
strict in that state, but it is stated that
everything connected with the execu
tions passed off without any hitch, and
the opinion of the physicians who wit
nessed the executions is that death by
electricity is painless, ana tnat it is a
humane way of carrying out a death
sentence. There is a strong prejudice
against the method and it will likely be
some time before the dynamo will come
into general use in place of the halter as
a means of disposing of criminals,
When conviction become more certain and
the pardoning power allowed to be used
only in cases where the innocense of the
prisoner lias been established, the death
penalty, will be very rarely imposed,
Editor Walker will not give bis read
era the results of the work of the expert,
but turns it off by saying that the com
missioners have made consummate asses
of themselves, the county attorney has
shown his total ignorance of the law and
the taxpayers are out about $206 by the
same. That shows that Mr. Walker is
not jealous, that he does not try to tsar
down the standing of his professional
competitors and as the records show that
Attorney Walker is a phenomenal law
yer his judgment must settle it and
there is nothing left for the commission
ers to do but to mulch their ears and
travel on all fours in future. But the
records show that the county is
about 1,00 on that deal and the county
attorney is sustained in his legal posi
tion on the matter fay Attorney Gen
