. School District Treasurers."
The new school law makes a change
in regard to the bond to be given by the
district treasurer, which will require
the director and moderator of all dis
tricts in Cass County to demand a
new bond, of the treasurer.
Section four sub-division four pro
vides that "the treasurer of each dis
trict shall, within ten days after his
election, execute to tne district and
hie with the director a bond of not
less than Gve hundred dollars in any
instance, nor less than double the
amount of money, as near a3 can be
ascertained, to come into his hands at
any one time with sufficient surety to
be approved by the director and mod
erator, conditioned for the faithful
discharge of the duties of his office;
such bond shall be filed in the office of
the county clerk of the county where
in the school district is situated ; and
if he fail to execute such bond, his
office shall be vacaut, and the board
shall thereupon appoint a treasurer
who shall bo subject to the same con
ditions, and possess the same powers
as if elected to thac office.
It will be noticed that the law has
no saving clause for those already
holding the office of treasurer; and the
Attorney general has given it as his
opinion that all must give new bonds.
These bonds must have endorsed on
them the approval of the moderator
and director, and be Gled in the office
of the county clerk.
As the new law has just been print
ed and sent to the directors this pro
vision couid not have Leen complied
with before but the law is now in the
hands of every director and this sec
tion should be enforced at once as the
county treasurer can not lawfully pay
out any money to school treasurers
until these bonds are filed with the

The zealous partisans of the presi
dent in the miserable quarrels which
he seems to insist on having with Sen
ator Coukling, claim that the preroga
tives of his oilice are at stake, and
that the confirmation of Judge Rob
ertson is necessary to a vindication of
his right in the matter of Federal ap
pointments. But this claim would
give to the contest more of character
and dignity than belongs to it. Had
the President in the iirst place, by
word and action, expressed his pur
pose to deal with public offices as a
trust from the people, to be admin
istered scrupulously in their interest ;
had he announced the determination
to make appointments for merit and
fitness, seeking light in regard to the
character of candidates from such
sources as were open to him, but ad
mitting the right of no political
leader to dictate or to divide with
h."'m the powers oi his office, and had
he proceeded to act upon the princi
ples thus avowed, then in case of op
position or resistance he would have
had some ground on which to make a
contest. He could have summoned
the party to his support, and it would
have been compelled to declare itself
for or against a principle. He would
have occupied a strong vantage
grounnd, and could have invoked the
power of public opinion to sustain
him and there is hardly a doubt that
personal opposition, based on a claim
to dictate appointments to office
would have shrunk into insignificance.
When the name of Judge Robert
son was submitted to the Senate
for the office of Collector of this port,
the office was not vacant. The term

desire to leave the office, and no alle
gation was offered that he was not
performing its duties satisfactorily.
Xot only was there no reason for
a change, but, the Collector being ad

perienced, reason was altogether

missing, holes aud gaps without num
ber and mud and garbage and building
refuse obstructing the gutters and

when the city pays enough for dam
ages to have macadamized the whole

stated that the commerce committee
would report the nomination on Mon
day, taking no vote, however, since
thev desired not to be placed on the
record in connection therewith. By
the conlirmation of Robertson he said
that the republicans would dig a deep

In order ta place iii a right light be
fore the public and place the credit
i where it is so richly due, I desire to
' make a statement, which I trust will
have some weight in aiding to frus
trate the combined influence and false
representations that are being brought
to bear upon those who desire to pur
chase a Davis vertical feed Sewing
Machine, and who have but little op
portunity of testing to its full extent
the excellent qualities both in point of
durability and unlimited variety of
work of the machine. I have now a
manufacturing department connected
with my wholesale house in Lincoln,
turning out thousands of garments in
overalls, jacket, shirts, drawers and a
host of other articles for the trade.
I have been using from 20 to -25 of
the others of the leading makes of
machines for the past Gve years, and
after a thorough and impartial trial
have found the "Davis" the most dur
able, with a capacity far exceeding
any other machine in the market in
point of work, accomplishing more
work in the same time at about one
third of the cost of repair of any. oth
er machine I have tried. The work is
of a class to put machines to severest
test, as they are used on every thing,
from the finest fabric to eight or ten
thicknesses of ten ounce duck; ;md
were they not well constructed and of
the very best of fteel they could not
possibly stand the severe tests of
work and speed they have undergone
in my establishment.
I have thrown aside all other makes
of machines and am using now the
Davis vertical feed machines exclus
ively. I can cheerfully recommend them
to all as a strong durable machine for
both manufacturing and family pur
poses, capable of doing a large range
of work which it is impossible to do
on the old style rachet of four mo
tion under-feed adopted and used by
all the machines but the Davis.
