The farmers "who bring feed w ith
tlrm for their teams' when they come to
town complain that the town cow steal
a good share of it from the horses and
want to know if thtre is not on ordinance
to protect them. There is such a law
and it should be enforced at this season
of the year. It may lie a little incon
venient for the owners of the cows but
it is no more than justice to the far
mers. Saloonkeeper Richstein received
through the mails on Wwlnesnay a let
ter intimating that If lie did not change
his course and do certain thingr he
would have to suffer. Some consider it
a joke, but if the guilty party is discov
ered it may not lie very funny for him.
The letter was signed "While Caps" and
is a flagrant violation of the law. If
any one does not want Richstein to vio
late the law and go unpunished there is
a way to get at it w ithout resorting to
white cap work. , It is about time to
consider that tlis i a civilized coinitry

The mutter ,of ijn,.nrUtM.m . well is
again lieing discussed l y llie people of
this locality. The drill of the bilk now
is to drganir.e Ii.sk ji company and pur
chase the iniK hniery .and operate it.
That is certainly the W't way as then
the money for the. work could be paid to
the people wk live, here. . There area
good many people who would be glad to
help such a thing along nnd it is hoped
that those who know something ulioiil
such work will take it up and carry it
forward. If artesian w vler can ,be oli
tained here it w ill do a great deal to ad
vance this part of the coudtry. , ,
Sienking of fixing the,. court house
calls out the suggestion that while they
are at it the commissioners would do
well to have a little work done on the
outside. The iron rail which formerly
ornaniuitad the lop has mostly d'snp
peareirehid some of the ornaments which
were in the vicinity of the tower have
blown down and the (building liegins to
look rather shabby, it would be good
economy to have such things fixed up
before gone beyond repair nnd it can
he done now with little expense. There
are also several panes of glass hroken in
the windows of the building which
should be replaced and the roof needs a
little work on it, so that it is deserving
of attention at the hands of those who
have the power to look after such
The convention called to meet ;)t
Craw ford on last Tuesday for the pt
of P-utte, Iawes, Sheridan and
Sioux counties to discuss irrigation mat
ters was well attended by representa
tives from all the counties except Sheri
dan. County Clerk Blewett, J. W.
Earnest, Judge Parker, James Slattery
and the editor of This Jut'KNAL went
from Harrison and were joined at An
drews by J. 11. C(K,k, and in addition to
these Senator Stewart, Lave Colville
and other citizens of Sioux county w ho
do business at Craw ford were present.
The convention was called to order by
I. C. Dietrick, vice-president of the state
association, and L. J. Simmons, of Har
rison, was elected chairman and A. E.
Sheldon, of Cbadron, secretary.
C. J. Grable, M. J. Blewett and Clark
Olds were opiointed a committee on
constitution and by-laws.
A general discussion of the subject of
irrigation followed and was participated
in by a good nuiulier. Judge Barker
was called out and by his knowledge and
experience as a civil engineer be was
able to give a great deal of valuable in
formation on the subject. The general
sentiment seemed to lie that every ef
fort should be made to get a law that
will ullow the use of all the water for
irrigation that is not needed for domes
tic use and at the same time protect the
rights of all settlers along the st reams;
to work for a state appropriation for
test artesian wells, and also for inter
state legislation and appropriations by
congress, and if the proper interest is
taken there is no doubt but what good
can lie accomplished.
After the constitution was adopted the
following officers were elected:
President, L. J. Simmons.
Secretary, A. E. Sheldon.
Treasurer. C. J. Grable.
M. J. Blewett, of Sioux,
B. H. McGrew, of bawes,
A. Sherwood, of Box Butte,
II. F. Wasmundj of Sheridan.
The convention then adjourned to
meet at Crawford on March C, 1H04,
when officers will be elected for
the ensuing year and all necessary steps
taken to cairy on the Work.
County Clerk Blewett, as vice-president
for Sioux county) will call a meet
ing of the people in the near future that
they may express their views ort tlie
subject so that a proper repoR may lie
made at the next meeting of the district
association and It is urged that every
one who can will attend and take part
in the work.

To Tiite Prfiur: As the voluiue of
business in the office of county superin
tendent is not Hulltcient to warrant my
presence at the court house at all tiilies,
I therefore set aside Wednesday of each
week for the transaction of pilblic busi
ness, and those having business before
the suierintendent should, as far lis pos
sible; make it convenient to present it on
those days. The third Saturday in each
month, as provided by statutes', will
also lie devoted to such business.
