The Wisconsin Farmers' Alliance
held a convention at Portage Wednes
day and passed resolutions pledging

Well that's something like, struck
one tangible thing anyway.
The Post is fast gaining gret'nd, is
being largely sought after from differ
ent directions, and we can only attrib
ute the same to the one common cause,
aside from the paper's general worth,
the -boom of the centre." The inter
ests of the county are fast becoming
centred here, and the people all desire
to know how things are progressing.
WniLE so much fixing is going on,
and Plattsmouth is really doing some
thing to help herself along, we call the
attention of the Commissioners to the
County road sooth of the Avenue. Be
tween the end of the MFory" and the
foot of the hill is a piece of road that
needs straightening and grading bad
ly. The temporary road runs un own
ed land, apt to be fenced up any time;
a big ditch runs down where the road
ought to be, and, in shoit, the transi
tion from the Avenue to that zigzag
anangement that has passed for a road
these many yuars, is too sudden. Can't
we have it fixed?
After wading through tlie usual di
luted columns of intelligence regard

Pyaemia, or bh.od poisoning from
which the president has been suffer
ing latterly, having first atlected the
parotid glands which is now in a sat
isfactory conditiou, has further com
menced its insidious attacks upon
the right lung and for the past week j

that.. If the reports may be relied
upon the worst stage of that trouble !
was passed bunday, ann the diihcul
tr is partially under control. The
danger now lies in further encroach
ment of the abscess upon the liing,
or of similar affections of tlie liver
and other internal organs. The slight
increase of strength perceptible in
the president would indicate howev
er, that the blood poisoning and ma
laria are being eliminated from his
system and the healthful sea breeze
of Long Branch is having its good
effect in restoring tne and life.
Many papers find fault with tlie
physicians and accuse them of such
malpractice as would be a disgrace
to the veriest quack. We can only
say like Harpers Weekly, any person
in Philadelphia who had received a
severe wound would call Dr. Agnew,
or in New York would call Dr. Ham
ilton as the surgeons and physicians
having the greatent reputation in
their respective cities. That being
the case all has been done that is
possible, and fault-finding is but
foolishness, in all s.-ive one particular;
we refer to an evident disposition not
to tell the whole truth, which would
hardly seem like fair play to a nation
which hangs with so much interest
on every item of intelligence regard
ing tlie prosiden. Blood poisoning
was never so much as referred to, ex
cept by one physician, until it was
no longer possible to disavow it, and
then it was spoken of as if it had
been known all along, in the same
way allusion to the condition of the
lungs was sedulously avoided until
it had reached so serious a form that
further concealment was impossible,
and then it was assumed that the
public had known all the time that
this was another manifestation of
But so far as the average public
can diagnose the case, the president

Denver and Lead rllle General
Acqcst 22d 18il
Denver is ene of the handsomest,
best built, liveliest aid most thriving
citie un tin? American continent. In
the heait of a rich uniting region, lh
--n t re of a grrat railway evnteiu, with
the j;reat fertile plains of Kans and
Nebraska within easy transportation
distance, and the probabiiities of her
own soil on the lower elevations be
coming in the near future, productive
to an FXtent hitherto unknown; this
city has a career before it unequaled
by any poiut we know of in the North
ern hemisphere. Not but that there
are other places equally eligible, as to
climate, natural position and re
sources, but that in our judgment, few
great towns are to be created in the
near future; that is in our future; and
Denver has that start, that concentra
tion of capital, that headway; in short,
which will ensure her permanency, if
her people use ordinary business wis
dom and flrittucial common sense.
Railways in the latter day are not
the makers of grsat towns, they are
distributers of wealth, of business, not
concentrating agents. In years gone
by, a great river, a great harbor, crea
ted a great city, because an immense
country must become contributory to
such points, from natural, geograph
ical, physical selection.
Later, for a few years, in the incipi
ency of great railroad systems, espec
ially in the far west, in the great un
developed region between the Mis
souri and the Rockies.and from thence
to the Pacific, railroads could and did
designate poiuts where business and
capital must centre, and become o
those points and the surrounding
country, what rivers and haibors were
to earlier towns, trading ports and
As the railroad system advanced,
railways became themselves great
channels ef commerce, great navigable
land rivers, which could be pushed
through ar.y country, only depending
on the expense of building them, and
are now so pushed independent ot nat
ural lay of land, simply regarding the
probable commerce that can be de
veloped in any given section of coun
try. From the moment thjs policy was
inaugurated, railroads became dis
tributors, and while they increased the
general average and total wealth of
any section immensely, they ceased to
develop, foster and cause to be built,
We mean now really great com
merce centres; such as the seaboard
towns developed into under natural
water navigation advantages, and
we doubt if the world sees again great
towns of a quarter of a million or up
wards ever built iu this western re
gion. While this is true, such towns as got
a big start in the earlier railroad de
velopment, while railways supplied the
place of great naviable.rivers, as you
my say, and caused commerce to con
centrate, gro.v and increase at their
termini these towns will hold their
own and grow in a gradual, systematic
way to be great business centres, be
cause the concentration of capitol
there, the influences and surroundings
of men of means and great business
interests will hold a certain amount
of trade in these points, and they can
and do influence legislation, and rates
of travel, to such an extent that
competing points -ia every sense of
the word are almost impossible.
Among these Cities, which has this
capitrf start, which correspond. to tlie
old river or harbor advantage, we pbice
Denver, and her future in a glorious
one among the twns west of the Aile
ganies. Of such cities we also class our own
fair metropolis, Omaha, whose future
is an assured fact, and it, too, will be
one of the largest, best business and
populational centres that can be built
up, under the new system that rail
roads have made necessary.
Denver, with an assured population
of 43,000. 5,048 feet elevation, a nice
cleati wholesome city, neither too great
an altitude, nor down in the hot re

road lines, can well afford to hold her

We saw Gov. Pitkin a few momenta,
read up the Capitol question, which
they are agitating in Denver now, tried
to get at the bi'tiora of the "Peck Dis
patches" and heard a lot about the
Utes, Apaches "half-breeds," "stal
warts," and other tribes in and about
the present Capitol of Colorado, in the
few days we wer there. As we do
not mean to make these notes of a po
litical character at all, we shall dis
miss this with the remark that there
ia a hot fight in prospect for U. S. Sen
ator this winter, and, politically, in
Colorado this fall. May the best man,
and the Republican party win which
it will if personal grudges do not over
master party fealty in our sister State.
August 24th. 1881.
I wanted to go to Leadville by the
Rio Grande and return by the Colorado
division of the U. P., but fate so order
ed that I was forced to take the night
train on the LT. P. division and ar
rived in Leadville in the morning
"airly." I had an upper berth in a
Harrow guage Pullman; I had just
been riding over that Black Hawk and
Central road; I knew nothing of what
kind of a road this was, and when
ever we stopped I could hear the
water rushing in a torrent by the
train. Whether we stood over a chasm
hundreds of feet down I could only
guess. The curves were pretty short,
and the top of the car rocked like a
ship at sea. Sometimes, I thought I
would roll out of the berth. It was
the only time in years I have been
nervous on a rail read train, I shut
icy eyes, tried to sleep and go it blind;
if I woke up down in the canyon, all
right, and if I didn't wake up, well,
thea I couldn't know anything about

very much pleased with it. Beiag

Y-ars ago, gold waa found in "Cali
fornia Gulch" on the Arkansas. It
was about worked out, and the c:mp
abandoned. A few years Hince, some
one discovered that the red rocks (car
bonates.) were rich in silver, and a
new rush for Leadville took place.
It was a wild oiip, and no mining
camp in America has had a rougher,
harder experi-nce than Leadville.
That rush is over, business has set
tled down to a steady basis, and the
city of Leadville, with room to grow,
wide streets, pure water (3oon) and
rich permanent mines, is bouisd to be

Hunting up an old army comrade,

that there wasn't more or less Nebras

heard of a dozen or so more that I did
not meet. I don't know how we
have so many old settlers here w hen
so many have gone to Colorado.

A most appaling disaster has fallen
upon a large portion of the counties of
Huron and ciaailac, Michigan, with
some adjacent territory a section re
cently covered ith forest, and now
occupied by nearly 50.000 people, large
ly recently settled, and either poor or
in moderate circumstances. In all
this section there has been but little
rain during two months. Everything
was dry when, on Monday, Sept. 5th, a
hurricane swept over it, carrying a
sheet of fl tine that leveled everything.
Two hundred persons are reported
burned to death, many' while fleeing.
Probably twice this number have
perished. There are reports from
twenty or more towns where scarcely
a building or supplies of any kind are
left, and thousands are destitute and

Hon. W. L. Bancroft, ealiin fo: iti :i

for them to Hun E. C Carlton, ti;.tjur
of Port Huron. The distress is unpar
alleled. It is believed that 300 persons
have perished and it is feared many
more, while thousands are stripped of
everything food, shelter, crops -and
stock, all swept clean from the face of
the earth. Accounts continue to come
in of the most harrowing discription.
A special to the Post and Tribune
says: George McDonald, of Mindon,
Sanilac county, tells a harrowing taie.
Over two hundred families are borne
less in that section and suffering from
want of food and clothing.
John Ballentine, of V?ron?t Mills
says flfty-thres lives were ku-v.Yn to be
lost in the neighborhood and on the
beach. The fire ho ftiddenly reached
Verona Mills ou Monday that the
town was soon wiped out. The w ind
was so strong that Bullentiiie and his
wife were picked up and blown iif
teen or twenty yards. A woman and
her husband were found lying against
a tree, dead, the woman partly deliv
ered of a child. The devastation
caused by the ires of 1871 is nothing
in comparison with the fires of the
last few days. In the vicinity of
RichmoudsviMe, Western, Forrester,
and Marion townships reliable infor
mation leads me to say that upward
of three hundred people have perished
in the flames. There is no hope for
thera. The woods and ground was so
dry that no warning of the danger was
given. Faster thau a race horse came
the fire. It would embrace a house or
barn with its contents, ari away to
the next. Persons who have been
through the teirible ordeal say that in
ten minutes from the time the fire
struck there would by no vestige of
the house left. I have just returned
from a trip through the burned dis
trict, and a description of the sights
would make the reader's bleed turn
odd. In many instances men, women
and children are lving o legs, where
they had clambered for safety. There
was no finding each other whee sepa
rated. Many took refuge in wells and
root houses, thinking to escape, but in
almost every instance were suffocated.
