Jay Burrows' populist pa(r lias giveu
up its young life and tlie other one the
Alliance-Independent is on its last
pegs. The crop seems to be pretty badly
blighted, Fremont Tribune.
Th Crawford papers have been chang
ing around of late and A. V. Harris now
appears as manager of the Tribune and
Frank R. WlDgfleld succeeds B. H,
McGrew as editor of the Gazette. The
policies of the papers remain the same
as iney nave been in tne past.
The village treasurer of Crawford
teems (o have bei deslrious of holding
on to the license money the same as the
village treasurer of Harrison and the
school board did the same as did the
school board of this district and a pre-
emptory writ of mandamus was issued
ordering the l unas turnea oyer at once.
The Crawford treasurer seems to know
when he had enough and disgorges with'
out delay, The treasurer of Crawford is
no hog, . .
It looks as if the chances for war be
tween France and Siani were pretty
good and if the ball is started there will
be other nations mixed in it. England,
Russia and China have already gone so
far that it is impossible for them to keep
Out if war is declared. The United
States will be ready to furnish all the
nations who engage in the war with sup
plies they need and will put an end to
joe cry of hard times in this country.
Th,e first issue of the Recorder, the
new Chadron paper, vras issued last week
and geems to be a healthy, well-formed
infant with good prospects for existence.
The name of Claude T. Taylor appears at
tb masthead and he says it is to be run
n the interest of straight democracy.
As long as Chadron is to have a demo
pratic paper it s to be congratulated on
. the fact that it is to be straight and not
fuie of the popocrat sort.
One of the leading pop papers at Lin
coln l-as gone to the wall and the other
Oiie nearly there indicates that the peo
ple are catching onto the fact that they
have been worked for suckers by the
reformers for office or revenue only.
Host, if not all, of the men who run pop
papers are at it simply for what there is
o it and not from principle and those
who read papers conducted on such lines
have no confidence in what they say and
Bjen of honor and principle will not ad
vocate what they do not believe.
Matters seem to be pretty badly mixed
as to what will be done in regard to. the
freight rates. I( was reported that the
fates fixed by the law would be put into
eflect Ijbe first of August and no fight
naade in the courts,, in the belief that' the
aw wo,W spoa become so unpopular
hat a demand would be made for its re
peat Later news is that the 13. & M.
has gone into the. federal courts and
asked that the state officials be enjoined
from enforcing the new, Law. The busi
ness men, of Lincoln are, making a hard
fght against the law fas its provisions
ase suck that the wholesale houses of
Uiat city will be driven from; the field.
Bow the matter will end- is hard to pre
set,, but a good deal of litigation, is
pertain, to result.

Special to the Denver News.
Harrison, Neb., July 19 Sioux coun
ty is the northwestern county of
Nebraska and Harrison is its flourishing
and progressive capital and chief town.
Harrison is located on the Fremont,
Elkhorn & Missouri Valley railroad; has
a population of 200; has a 10,000 court
house constructed of brick and stone, the
building material being of local product;
lias a good public school building, with
two department; has a handsome Metho
dist church building; has a good hotel;
has two banks, two newspapers, a city
water svstem derived from a fine well
with steam pumping as the motive pow
er, and business houses of heavy invest
ment and active custom.
The business houses include the Ranch
Supply House, Lewis Geilach proprietor,
carrying groceries, dry goods, clotlun,
boots, shoes, etc.; Griswold & Marsteller,
general merchandise and hardware; Geo.
H. Turner, general merchandise, flour,
feed, groceries, farm machinery, etc.:
G. W. Stevens, livery; Dr. W. E. Bridg
man. drugs; H. A. Cunningham, harness
and saddlery; I. Richstein, liquors and
cigars; J. W. Scott, restaurant; G.
Guthrie, grain buyer; Hester & Son,
lumber, coal, grain and agricultural
implements; Montgomery & Zeigler, mil
linefy, and various minor places of
The active legal talent of the town
comprises tL T. (Jonley and Oreorge
Walker, Esqs. v
The county officers, Thomas Eeidy,
sheriff; Conrad Lindeman, clerk; M.
Gay hart, treasurer; H. T. Conley, attor
ney; S. Barker, judge; A. Southworth,
superintendent of schools, are giving ex
cellent public satisfaction.
Harrison is in need of a roller process
flouring mill and her people would give
a liberal bonus toward the erection of
such a mill. Harrison is the center of
one of the finest wheat sections in the
est. A mill of at least fifty barrels
capacity per day is wanted.
The business men of Harrison, in com
mon with all other western Nebraska lo
calities, are eager for direct and close
Denver railroad connections, both mail
and freight. With such connections and
equable freight rates Denver wholesale
houses would almost exclusively supply
Harrison merchapts.
An increase in service on the Cheyenne
& Northern would fully accomplish the
desired connection, and even a favorable,
change of the present Cheyenne & North
ern schedule time would be of material
