which we copy entire :
Tl: proprietor of th-j new county seat
of York count', i. N. Smith. K., has
disj.l fd com.ntnd.i!!-' oneray in living
out the new town ail jneparing com
fortable fpiarters for the county ciTieers
ai'cer the en-uimr election. The town
sue o-pies two nunuivi an-.i sixtv acres i
of land haii'isomely laid out. with Pub-
lie Square and Ik-pot grounds, and the
lots are sixty by one hundred and forty-
Wehavel-n favored with a ror.y of
the maj) of the new county seat of York
county, and as it gives the local ion of
the four townships lying in the centre of
tne count;-, it shows to isooi advantage
tlie position of the ne town. The set
tlement is on Leaver Creek, about four
miles south of Lincoln creek, in the
midst of an extremely fertile country
which has rapidly settled up with a thri
ving population. The fertility of the
soii is unsurpassed in the State, and the
immigration to that county this year will
riot, fall short of .several thousands.
The West Blue in the south part of
the county has nearly every claim on it
pre-euipted or homesteaded, and for a
mile or two back of the stream, thus
opening up a splendid fanning section.
The Beaver running through the centre,
and Lincoln creek fart her. north, are ab-o
well settled, giving a fanning population
as a basis upon which to build a sub
stantia! and permanent county town.
The future of the new town of York is
beyond peradventure, and w e predict a
fortune to those who have invested their
capital to build up a county scat for the
new county. The railroad is not defi
nitely located at this place, but whether
it does or does not, the town must al
ways be the largest place in the county.

Editor Statesman: Soma of the
Democratic, papers of the State have
seen fit to criticise my conduct as a mem
ber of the committee appointed by the
legislature to investigate the officiate in
duct of the commiMsionersof public build
ings, etc., and to charge me with "white
washing" commissioners. The Omaha
ll'-ral l includes rue iu the list of mem
bers bought by direct bargain and sale.
With my friends and acquaintances
such charges have no effect. Unfortu
nately, however, to many of my constitu
ents, I am personally unknown. 1 set
tled on the Big Blue river, in this county,
over seven j-ears ago, (the first settler
here), and have here remained, improv
ing my homestead by V4 oicn labor, un
til the people called me (unasked) to the
position I now occupy.
I have borne the democratic standard
through ten political battles and hare
never yet sutfered defeat ; have voted
the democratic ticket since I S-10, and pro
pose "to light it out on this line. I
have served my country faithfully in two
wars, and am not yet so old but that 1
would again obey her summons "right or
wrong. ' '
I have held office for twenty years (in
Ohio, Iowa and Nebraska), and never
"whitewashed" any man, (not even
Governor Butler), and 1 thank (Sod that
1 cuti also say that 1 have never Hack
ened the character of any maa unde
servedly. I am now acting justice of the pcaco,
and if Satan Lini3eif (or any other re
publican) n brought, before me he may
expect jutticc. If he stands charged
with as many crimes as were the com
missioners, he will, unless they are
proven, receive an acquittal. I wili al
vavs endeavor to "give the divi! his
1 " ! -
I am poor, s;nd not worth buying, but,
assuming that Governor Butler lias msidj
ail (or more) from Lincoln lots than has
been cl'egcd, he has not enough money
to luy me.
Some have seal, but plrey the foci, and
I some choke at a gnat and swallow a amel
chopped (saw-miU) ; others will go for a pint bot
11 full of j tie in the Governor's coat pocket, anu
take a five gallon jar.
I have never t.t;cd favors of the demo
cratic party, but have received many, for
which I am truly thankful.
1 am satisfied the jrrty do not expect
or wish ia-i to violate my obligation to
p!"?i any man, or set of men, and : '
some over-zealous members expect it, I
have simply to say they have mistaken
their man. 1 hrtve always deemed my
self as much of a "copperhead" as any
one, but have never yet gone blind be
fore tho proper season of the year.
Hoping, Mr. Editor, that your demo
cratic principles will soon jingle through
out the Isind even as our money did.
I remain yours for the right,
J. S. Hunt.

but my prayer shall ever be, "iiw me

A large meet ing of our citizens was

apparent by those in favor of the orL'i

Stirring speeches were made by Cob.
Cropsey, Col. PLlh.ott, Sec'y Iwnnaol.
Dr. At wood, Dr. Scott and others, and
the que; lion finally assumed the thane of
a proposition that if the citizens would

For several years the people in the
vicinity of Tipton, in this county, have
noticed a pile of rock near the road-side.
Last Sunday, so we sn-e informed by Mr.
G. Hay, a party cf several of the neigh
bors in that vicinity commenced an ex
amination; an;! unon removing the rocks
they found a kind of vault, and th : rin
the skeletons cf four human persons.
They were in a tolerable state of preser
vation, the arm- bones above the elbow
and the lb; Ji-Loi.os in a peili-.-t st:tte.

The curse of the working men is in
temperance. Too many who give muscle
to their work, think that they get
strength from wine, or beer, or whisky ;
and too many who givo brain to their
work, fall into the same ssd error. In
either case the stimulus brings a double
heart. It over-excites, and in conse
quence, there is exhaustion of muscle
and brain ; while it creates the desire,
nay, almost the necessity far new an-I in
creasing stimulation. To what fatal
consequences all this had, we need
scarcely say. It is the broad and eay
ws:y to drunkenness-, poverty, and ruin.
The royal road to prosperity a:id happi
ness does not lie through the beer-shop
find drinking saloon. They who go in
through these open doors, enter the
way that leads to disease, poverty,
wretchedness, and the destruction of air
that makes life beautiful and desirable
both here and hereafter.
A Foittaud (Oregon) hotel keoperwas
victimized not long since in the following
manner : A. B. went to him and engaged
board for a week at ??10 per week.
"Now," said A. B., "I may be absent
occasionally; what deduction will you
make for that?" "Fifty rents a niesd
if.nl fifty cents a lod-rng," re pile. 1 the
landlord. Timo were onand A. . wi.s
foii-etimes there an 1 sometimes n:-t.
After a while the landlord pr ented a
bill for three week's board In a
short time A. B. appeared with a counter
bill for deduction for meals and iodciugs
missed. Meals catcsi, three, $150; lodg
ings i;ii;-cd, rein Icen. ?7 ; balance in fa
vor of A. B.. The' landlord, of
coarse, was a litllo r.totidV:l sit the ru
se.!': f f the ree konhig, and theref;ro said
not a word, for the b"s '. reason that he
coubi not think of anything that co i'd
do justice to the su'j;et.. Whereupon
A. J., to n 'iicve the lan-bord'-s perpiox
ity, remarked with cool urbanity, "Weil,
never mind the S2: I'll take thsd out in
loard." The Irr.; l'f.ri could not see how
to keep even with such a boarder, and so
tho connection between him an-1 A. B.,
as landlord and boarder, came to an end.

Y"e hope that Judge Mason, and Mr.
Morton, both of whom sire known as
men of the most bitter r-u-l relentless

able to "'sleep sound o'uiruts." in the
