We learn from Government Surveyors
who have been in the field during the

Valley should be up and doing, and pro

through our county will enhame
the value of real estate not less than one
third, and it will give our county the
double advantage of a direct connection
with St. Louis but it will give our far
mers the advantage of connection with
the competing lines from Omaha. Let
there be no delay in this matter, for the
decision as to the location of the line
will soon be made. This road will either

turday to confer with the citizens of this

with a few of the citizens, it wa decided
to adjourn the meeting until Monday the
Hist hist, in order to make more com

Ol'R CJItAIX TRAllK.
We have often ftated that l'latts
mouth was t..e great grain market of the
Missouri valley, and we believe the fig
ures will bear us out. The following
figures of the amounts shipped during
the months of September and October,
by only two dealers, shows well for the
county and city. The figures arc from
the books of the railroad freight office,
and consequently are reliable.
Joseph Alexander Connor shipped 92
cars of wheat, 89 cars of corn and 24
car3 of oats. Iulholland & Thatcher
shipped 75 cars of wheat, 38 cars of
barley, and 2o cars cf oats ; making 177
cars of wheat, of corn, 49 of oats
and 38 of barley, or a total of 3o3 cars
of gram shipped from this city by only
two dealers, in two months. 3Ir. Con
nor appears to take the lead, which is
owing, no doub to the superior facili
ties be has for handling grain. A de
scription of his "elevator" appeared in
the IIkrai.d some months since.

As we have before ftated, the officers
of the above road were in this city last
Saturday for the p rpose of conferring
wi.h our people rclatire to the building
of their road through this county, and
thp.t the meeting was adjourned until
Monday, the 21st. We hope there will
be a full attendance at that meeting, not
only of the people of this city, but of
the county generally. Come and see
what .these men have to say about their
road, and do not treat them with con
tempt. Thev have several routes in
view, and it stands the people in hand to
encourage tho building of the road upon
sonic of them. The fact that you come
to the meeting does not necessarily com-
not verged in law. Thi. leaves the case j James W aters,

The attorneys in the case were J. C.

Hon. T. 31. JIarciuett and 3laxwell &

boldly asserted, and offered to back their j
assertion with money, that he would
hold his seat long enough to deprive
3Ir. Kennedy of his right to vote for U.

trial. The following is as full synopsis of

M. J. Powers I think I remember
the 28th day of June last. Loft my
mother at the house, vhen I went to
work, about sun up; it was near a half

closest to the road ; she had been to tlie
cabbage patch and was coming to the
house ; was shot in the road-right where
the Lushes come closest to the fence be

in the by-path ; saw three distinct tracks
in tho path; saw bushes knocked down

in the garden; I measured them, they
corresponded with the tracks in the path

Iu our remarks last evening on the
mandating case we indicated that Judge
Lake was responsible for the mistake in
the vcr.t e of the writ, inasmuch as the
document was issued by him. The Judge
informs us that the writ was not drawn
by him, and that he only endorsed his
"approval'' on the back, without exam
ining the contents only to know that the
character of the paper was correct. We
desire to do Juage Lake complete justice
in this matter, for we believe he fully
comprehends the wrong that has been
committed against the people and hon
estly desires it to be rectified.

While the Judge not only expressed his
opinion that the board should have can
vassed the vote, but denounced the re
fusal to canvass as malfeasance in olTiee
on the part of the clerk, und claimed, as
heretofore claimed by the Herald, that
it mattcroj not wnen tne clerk ot cviun
ders county mailed his abstract it was
the duty ofthe clerk to canvass it when
ever it did arrive, whether within
seven or more than seven days.
He delivered a most scathing re
buke to the clerk, also to the gentleman
who would attempt to hold a seat on a
technicality while he knew that a large
majority of the legal voters hud decided
against him. The Judge proceeded to
state "that if .such things were tolerated
it would render the voice of the people
bone-tly expressed, a complete nullity
and farce, and would place the entire
franchise of the people at the mercy of a
few political tricksters, who would be
able to control the Legislature. WhileJ
the Judge said all this, and more be
even went so far as to say that his de
sire was to grant the mandamus, and
that he believed justice and cTuity de
manded it yet he held that the shnpe
of the case was such that he. could nct
grant the writ, and the case wa dis
missed. His reasons for , not grant
ing the writ, as we v understood
him. are substantially these
The venue ofthe alternative writ is "the
State of Nebraska" etc., where it should
be "the people, of the State of Nebraska'
etc.; and that the writ is L-sued against
the board of canvassers and the county
Clerk, whereas it should only be against

as to be better than ever it has been

Professor" Johnson, (for such tccllcjU
him), has composed for the same church
chants etc., rivaling in grandeur, beauty
and pathos, the productions of the most
celebrated composers. We believe if
our most worthy follow citizen would
only come out he would soon rise to a
worthy fame. But his musical genius is
kept in the background by a retiring
modesty rarely met with at this day.
At a regular meeting of the vestry of
St. Luke's Parish, the following resolu
tions were adopted, to-wit :
Whereas, It has pleased the all-wise
Providence to remove, by sudden death,
our beloved si.-ter, 3Irs. Bebeeea E.
Your, (late) the- wife of our Pa-tor
Henry St. George Young, who has for
the past two years, (which time she has
been with us), endeared herself to us all
by her devotion and Christian example
on all occasions, whether in the Sabbath
school, where the has ever been a most
prominent teacher, or in the" choir, where
we have all so often listened to her sweet
voice in singing and chanting the praises
of God, therefore, be it
Jicsohcd, By tho lull board of vestry
men of St. Luke's Pari.-h, that, while
we bow in humble submission to the Di
vine will, we cannot refrain from giving j
expression to sentiments of sincere grief ;
and sorrow, and lament the sudden do- !
cease of one in the youth and prime of
a life so full of promise as that of our
departed friend and sister.
Resohcd, That by the death of our
dear sister, (31 is. Bebeeea E. Young),
the Church has lest one of its most de
voted members; the children of the
Sabbath School one of their best friends
and teachers, and society one of its
Rrsoh(d, That while we feel that no
words of condole nee we may offer, can
alleviate the poignant sorrow over the
irreparable loss su-tained by our beloved
Pastor and friend, yet we desire to ex
press to him our deep and heartfelt sym
pathies, wifh a hope that the same n!I
wisc Providence who has for his inscru
table purpose seen lit to lay this heavy
afiiietion upon him, mayalsj temper his
sorrow and give h'm grace, to sustain
him in this his great bereavement.

workmen from the Railroad Machine
shops were on hand in a few moments,
yi ith a patent fire extinguisher (a num

prompt action of the citizens saved the
houst from destruction, although it was
damaged to the extent of $15U or $1X!0.

our item of yesterday in regard to his
taking charge ofthe hotel in Omaha for
merly known as the Hotel da ord.
The Capt. has leased the house, is re
fitting it, and opens it to the pub
lie under the name of the Nebraska
Hotel. It ia the largest hotel in Omaha
now open, and will be second to none in
the west so far as accommodations are
concerned. The extensive acquaintance
of the Captain throughout the- Stato in
sures him a large run from the day it is
known that he h opened the house.
His experience in our city as a landlord
has given him a" reputation all over the
west that is the envy of many a landlord.
