Comity Treasurer Itiehle received a
voucher from Auditor Moore a few days
ago for some thing over four thousand
dollars school money, which was found
to have teen intended for the treasurer
of Custer county. A state npportioo
ujent of that sum would gladden the
hearts of many Sioux county teachers.
The commissioners have been hard
at work checking up the hooks of the
treasurer's office for the ast two years,
and when completed they will know just
how the outgoing treasurer stands anil
in future should an investigation be
made no shortage will Isj found. It was
supposed that was what the slate exam

state and a large gathering is looked for.
If there ure any in Sioux county who de
sire to attend the convention they can
easily get credentials, as the county is
entitled to a number of delegates.
It would le well for merchants to be
careful alsiut furnishing goods to paup
ers on the order of a justice, as the com
missioners do not seem inclined to allow
bills for any thing but the necessaries of
life. In some counties the merchants
require that orders from a justi-e lie en
dorsed by one of the county commission
ers liefore it will be honored. That cer
tainly would help to bold the bills clown

no occasion for it outside of a printing

At the meeting of the Sioux County
Stockgrowers" Association held at the
residence of E. J. Wilcox on last Thurs
day three names were added to the roll
of members, ('. B. Uollingsworth, J. T.
Hewitt and J. T. Anderson were chosen
as a Isiard of directors. The next meet
ing will be at the residence of S. R.
Story on January !10th at 10 o'clock, a.
ni. A vote of thanks was given to Mr.
and Mrs. Wilcox for hospitalities ex
tended. The association has adopted the
constitution and by-law of a similar or
ganization which has been in socssful
operation for some years in Fall River
county, South Dakota, and there seems
to tie no reason why it should not do just
the same in Nebraska.
Sberiir Bartlett informed us that the
county commissioners had instructed
him ti close the .court room against all
gatherings, unless a permit was obtained
from the Iward. The commissioners are
rewiionsible for the county property and
consequently liave authority for taking
such action, but there are grounds to
question the wisdom of such a course.
It is the only place in the town or coun
ty nuitable for public gatherings and it
does not seem right to deprive toe peo
ple of its use. It may be that in the past
its use has been no easily obtained and so
free from responsibility that some have
come to consider it a right rather than a
privilege and abuse of the privilege fol
lowed, but it hardly just that all should
be denied the use of the place because of
such acts by a few. If the room was
put in charge of the sheriff with instruc
tions to grant permission to use it to re
sponsible parties for any public gather
ing, the party obtaining such permissin
agreeing to leave it in as good condition
as it was received, and to make good any
damage, and to rent it at a fair price to
any one who desires to use it for private
gain, it would be better than to close it
for the whole time except the few days it
would be used for district court: purposes.

The settlement of the controversy I
between Turner and Hough was sub
milted to arbitration, the arbitors Isiing
County Clerk Blewett, P. B. Bigelow j
and J. L. F. lager, of Chadron. The:
findings were in favor of Turner, but we
did not learn the exact amount. It is
not known whether the case will end
where it is or go to the courts.
The action of the commissioners at
the last meeting rejecting the bill for
goods furnished to pauiiers on the order
of a justice of the peace, led Justice
Klein to write a long communication ad
dressed to the county lxard defining his
authority and instructing the board as to
their duty in such case, and threatening
the board with legal proceeding if his
orders were not promptly honored. He
gave sjiecial instructions to the clerk to
lile the communication as it might be
needed. Some one most have given him
