C. L. MATHER,
. - Editor.
THURSDAY, MAY 14 1874.
From all parts or the State and country rea
porttully solicited . , ,
We do not read anonyaow lettars and com
munications. The nasae and nddress of the wri
ter are in all casa indispensable, a a gaaraaty
of good faith.
It ha9 been pugpestcd by two or three
of our leading citizen that the people of
Red Cloud and Webster cojoty gener
ally, form some kind of an organization,
havinz a "name and habitation," the
object or which will be to assemble at
stated time, or on proper call to discuss
all measures relating to our interests,
and be ready to take concerted action
whenever any emergency should arise
which would call for sudden attention.
Such an organization would, beyond all
doubt, be conducive to the public wel
faro. It might be local as far a? the town
or precinct is concerned, and each section
of the county have separate organiza
tions, or it might be ono strong combi
nation, composed of all the enterprising
citizens of the county, so far as they
would chooae to identify thejuselves with
the movement.. . J .
There are many questions of special
interest to the cit'zens of Red Cloud,
and incrdentally to the whole county,
which from present indications, will
never bn. acted upon, unless sonio such
organization is effected. The truth of
the old saying "That everybody's busi
ness is nobody's business," is exemplified
in our every day experience.
We have road matters, the bridge, and
mill interests, and immigration, and
many other things too numerous to
mention which ousrht to be continually
watched and looked after, aud which
must receive our attention if we wish to
prosper as a town and county If an or
ganiza ion of citizens was formed, com
mittees could be appointed to look after
each specific interest, and such action
taken as would be found necessary.
These hints are thrown out, and if any
one is disposed to take up the theme
further, the columns of this paper are
open for its discussion.
The question is sometimes asked why
TnE Chief does not contain more news
of a general nature such as congression
al reports, etc., and also, why such mat
ters are scarcely ever referred to edito
rially. These questions are asked in
good faith by our friends and patrons,
and we will "rise to explain" our own
view of the matter.
In the fir.-t place, we did not set out
lo publish a newspaper devoted to gen
eral news. At the outset, we stated
that our aim and object, was to make
The Chief dittinctively a local paper.
Not, however, confining its sphere to (he
county in which it is published, bbtTtd
the section of the State composed" of
the counties in the Republican Valley
and vicinity. This field, if well worked
over, will afford material enough to fill
with interesting matter, a paper much
larger than ours.
In the second place, we do not think
that general new, and long winded ed
itorials upon the leading topies of the
day, come within the scope of a county
paper, generally, and particularly in
our own case. Being away from rail
road and telegraph facilities, not even
the advantage of a daily mail, all the
source from which wo could gather the
material for a general newspaper would
be from other papers, many of which
arc already taken by our own subscri
bers, and by the time a rehash could be
thus given, would be old and stale.
Our paper is too small to contain any
great amount of reading matter. Those
who take an intcrc.it in the affairs of tho
great outnde world generally are sub
scribers of the large, city papers, which
are furnished at extremely low rats:,
much cheaper than the bare cost of is
suing the smal'est of county pipers.
If we succeed in furnishing a good
local paper, we are satisfied our labors
in that line will, in the end, be satisfac
tory to our friend-, and it will certaialj
fill the measure of our own ambition.
Tei Lowell Register has an editorial
on the subject of the removal of the
Land Office from Lowell to the valley,
and as a matter of course opposes such
step for various reasons given. Inci
dentally we wish to remark that if Kear
ticy cooaty is "so much superior to tho
Republican valley county, why is it that
Kearney has only 327 inhabitants, while
Webster has 2,i50, Franklin, Ilarlan
and Furnas about the fame. It ui little
strange that settlers prefer a good firtile
soil to "sand hills."
Here is a new lesson for railway com
panies. Juries are disposed to hold thum
responsible for all manner of things, but
a Wisconsin jury ha mulcted the Chica
go and Northwestern Railway Company
in damages to the amount of one thous
and dollars tor the kissing of a yoaag
lady passenger by the condactor. A fe
male school teacher, young and pretty,
was riding from Milwaukee to Baraboo,
and it came to be that she was sole pas
stager in the car before he reached her
journey's end. And it came ta pass a
the conductor took up her check, he
gave her a kiss. She aiade complaint
and the conductor, very- properly, was
dismissed, besides being fined twenty-five
dollars for assault. Trie young lady was
not content with that punishment of the
cJfewier bat sued the company and re
covered one thousand dollars. Suppose
she hsd been traveling on a "pass"

"The weight of the snow that fell la-t
Saturday night in the region round
about Oswego. New York, was so great
as to break down theu wires in every di
rection, cutting off Oswego, for the lime
bcinsT, from telegraph communication
with the world outside that city. As
the enow fell here on Monday night suf
ficient to whiten the ground, we shall
not be surprised to hear of good sleigh
ing in more northern tactions. The
"ground hog" may have beca right in
saying on 2d February tht the backbone
of the winter was broken but he failed,
very hoggishly, to tell us that the tail of
the winter would continue to wag all
through the spring."
The above extract is copied from a
Cleveland. (Ohio) paper of May 2d. We
copy it for the benefit of thove who have
been growling at the weather here in
Nebraska. On the date above mention
ed, hundreds of acres of corn h id been
planted in this county, and all the small
grain crops were up and covering the
ground with a beautiful verdure ofltving
In Lewis county, New York, the fall
of snow ou last Saturday was over twen
ty inches. In Otsego county the fall
at the same time was equally heavy, and
the "oldest inhabitant" declares nothing
in his memory has paralleled i on the
25th of April. But these oldest inhabit
ants have miserable memoriea. About
Albaafand Trejr, br wit name atorm,
hundreds of trees were ruined, and tele
graphic wires broken. In Utica like
damage was done to the trees and shrub
bery. The Albany Journal says : In
Bennington, Vermont, the steeple of the
Congregational Church, 160 feet in
height was blown down, crushing an ad
joining house. At Boston Corners, on
the Harlem road, the trains had to stop
through fear of being blown from the
track. The snow drifted at some points
on the Harlem road to the depth of four
feet, and near Rutland, Vermont, to the
depth often feet. The Hudson steamers
could not move Saturday night. Ex.
