of that country.
The Jovkxal, in days, now gone by
has indirectly questioned the pure demo
cracy of Ed. Saterlee of Chadron. But,
since reading in the Hemingford Herald
an account of the resolutions pemnai bv
the democratic representative conven
tion in Chadron, the Stb of this month,
which alone were furnished to but one
of the three democratic papers in this
representative district by Mr. Saterlee,
w therefore, conclude Ed's democracy
is tbe genuine, the pure and undeflled
Tbe J jCRXAL now believes Mr. Saterlee
questions the democratic principals of
the Sioux Conmr Journal and the Hat
Sprunoa Leader, or they each would
have been favored with a copy of tbe
resolutions. Never-the-less the JoUBXAL
must confess that Ed. is one of the uti
terifled, and for proof of our assertion
we refer all who doubt it to go to the
columns of the Hamingford Herald.

As tlie Journal went to prers last
Thursday noon it was impossible to
give the virdict in the case of Nebraska
vs Irving Gillmore as the court's charge
as not delivered to the jury until about
2 o clock after which the jurors in the
case repaired to the' jury room where
they deliberated over the evidence till
about S o'clock when the judge was noli
lieu and court reconvened to receive the
virdict! When court had been called
the iury after being notified that the
court was waiting to receive the virdict
they filed into the jury box and after a
DU rogatory from the judge as to wheth
er they were all agreed on a virdict, the
virdict signed by the foreman LL A. Prid
dy handed to the clerk of the court and
from the cl-rk to Judge Westover who
nformedthe prisoner at the bar of jus
tice by reading Irom the virdict that he
had been acquitted and 'w tlioreforedis-
charged by the court
To say that the accused wns happy
over the virdict rendered in his favor by
the jury and then being discharged by
the court is beyond the ability of the
Journal scribe to tell it in writing.

prosecution and the defence did all they
could, one to convict and the other to

over, after making an examination of
the evidence in the case, granted a
decree of absolute divorce to the plain
tiff without having to pay nlimony and
was granted a refund of (53.00 suit mon

decreed that the mother should have the
custody of the child, granting privilege
to the father of having the child one day

Last Sunday was on idea', day for the
unveiling of the monument, erected to
the memory of Albert R. Dew by the
Woodman of the World, with one excep
tion it was quite windy and dustv.
mere were a large congregation of
friends and neighbors of the deceased
gathered at the cemetery to witness the
imposing ceremony which was conduc
ted under the auspices of the W. of W.
and M. of W., orders of which Mr. Dew
was a member. It ould be no exager
ation to say there were 200 people in at
tendance at the .metery. Hon. Lewis
Gerlach was the orator of the occasion
and we believe was the right person in
the right place. There were others, who
Ulled important places in conducting the
ceremonies, and among them were John
I. Davis, W. H. Davis, Charles Biehle,
Grant Guthrie, John Marsteller, E. F.
Pontius and others.
The ceremony was a fitting one and
the monument, which was a beautiful
one, does credit to the order erecting it
and besides it is a credit to the memory
of him who s last resting place it will
mark during the years that shall come
and go in the future.
