how the Bibld question, or debate re

although there were fome very natural
arguments; and also the Railroad Bond
question ; on this question, after the de
bate, the judges retired into open air,
and it being a decidedly cool night, toon
agreed not to vote bonds, because rail
roads use up so much fuel, and we are
in danger of getting our ears frozen

To-morrow eve. we are to decide

that the so-called board of trustees, if

The Milford Record, in -referring to
railroad matters in York county scys,
that in case the M. P. goes north of
I'ork county, an excellent route would
be left open for another and perhaps a
better company to construct a road from
Lincoln to Grand Island, via York, and
that this ror.te will not remain unnoticed
by railroad builders! We agree with
Bro. Culver exactly, that tli5,?ffa?e:wl7T
De left open till dooms da;?and that
railroad builders will notice us as a peo
