THE ftEat CLOUD CHIEF.
WITNESDAY APBIL 21. 1875
Offyeaeral principles it it hardly
appropriate or is good taste for a eiu-
te aeddle ia the Meal affairs of a
aty ia which be bas wither rei-
ataraor property interest. County
sat fights, the sennble of local poli
tiirissi frr oftce, and the soaoenof
this or that faction in tbemanageiaent
afaJairsare purely ftauly Batters,
that rhoald he directed aod carried on
by taote directly interested ia the re
sale, aad by ao one else. The convene
ofthU u that towns or individoals in
tarejtedin tbee local broils should
not endeavor to drag the outside world
into their quarrel.
As all oar readers are well aware,
there has been a war of lone standing
between the rival towns of Hastings
aad Juniata. Asritisens of another
caanty, it was none cf our particular
faaeral as to which of the towns cane
oat ahead, though we believe that the
syaipthies cf a majority of this county
were with Juniata. Be this, as it may,
the lY'bt was their own, and they
eaaaM hate conducted it without in
terfering with the rights and privileges
of other counties. It is well-known
that B siting was the sggresmr, aod
that Juniata stood on the defend ve.
The good people of Hastings deter-
aaiaed to wia ia the fight, by fair
saeaae if pbwble, but were bound to
wia at all barards. The end justifies
the sieMS, appears to have been their
aootto from the beginning. The elec
tioa on the question of relocating the
oaaty-seat came off on the 6th ion,,
aa which day there was an election
thraagbout the State for members of
the Constitutional Convention. Web
star county happens to be districted
with Adams and Kearney counties,
mmi two memfcewf were to be elected
by this afdA. VuW . e0od sound
oatsJroaliLbave dictated that Adins
eoaaty, with the home fight op band,
keep, out of thin other matter, only h
fir as it wa necorary to secure com
pcteat aud worthy men to represent
.tbe district. But noting was deter
Sained not only to run Adams county.
bat, sta, the remainder ofthc district.
With a set of delegates in Convention,
the ercater part of whom were elected
at hidden caucuses, they made nom
ination's without the least regard to
the fitness of the men or the wishes of
the people, or the interests of the dis-
fcrict. The only qualification asked or
desired, was that the candidato be in
favor of removing the county-scat from
Juniata to Hasting-. The nomination
Blade were so palpably and fearfully
unfit that the people of the district
oould not bo forced to swallow the
dose. A general feeling of disgust
prevailed and the conequenca was
that at the polk the convention noai
laeee were defeated. To Adams connty
the canvassing board acted in the most
unwarranted and illegal manner. The
County Clerk broke open the scaled
packets or ballots, contrary to the
plainest provision of tho law, and the
canvassers threw out the vote of Cot
tenwood precinct, upon the ground
that the election board was not sworn
ia by a person authoiizud to adminis
ter oaths. This was done for tho two
fold purpose of getting the county seat
aad defeating, possibly, Thorne for
the coa. con. With the fin-t reason
we have nothing to do, but the other
affects our interests, or would have
done, but for the fret that Thorne,
bad aajority without the vote of
that precinct. It is true that the ma
jority i a small one, bnt it is sufficient.
The extreme selfishness of the Hast
ings people, and their readiness to
violate every principle of law, honor,
and justice to individuals has over
reached itself, and they have set up a
howl at the result that can be on'y
equalled, not surpassed, by the inhab
itants of the inferr a! pit.

As the gentleman who signed the

just what is charged above, and also
gave the scarce of our information.
We were told by a gentleman whose

was airealated, asking that the route
from Sed Cload to Grand Island be
discnaaaaed, and a new route from
Hastings to Rivertoa established, and
very kindly giving Erf Cload a "stub' '

Will the editor of the Hastiags
Journal ever lean that ha has got ia
to a country where the people vote
itelltffenlb f The people of Webster
county voted for Thorne aod Laird fir
the simple reason that these wen were
their choice. The voters of Webster
county lawo almost to a man who the
nominees were, and repudiated them
upon that knowledge. It is true that
ore voters knew who wsa nominated
than that there was another ticket ia
the field, and many remained at home
whowoold have voted if they had
known of opposition. The reiterated
assertion of the Journal that it was
only by the trick of keeping other bal
lots from the polls that secured the
election of Laird and Thorne, is dis
gusting to the voters of this county,
and is generally taken as a direct in
sult to the intelligence of the people.
Dague evidently thinks that voters are
incapable of "voting undcrstandingly.'
Keep on the same strain, awhile long
er, if you are really desirous of making
yourself as obnoxious as possible.
There is one thing rare, and that is
that Laird did not and could not get a
majority in his own county. m Adams
county, where they know Laird, has
not now, aad sever has given him a
majority. The connty could not be
induced to nominate him. He never
could have fcen elected had it not been
aneompluihed bv tricks played in other
counties, through the treachery of
such men a C. L. Slather. llaMting$
The above iaone of the many whines
over the late election that escaped
from the Senator's paper. It may
ormnynotbe truo that Laird could
not get a majority iu his own county,
but it is evident that he received a
majority in his own precinct, where he
tf known, and, also, a large majority
in Wilson's precinct, where both were
known. In showing up the fact that
Laird did not get a majority in his own
county the Journal fiils to state ju,t
the exact number of non-residents
who voted at Hastings, and as a mat
ter of cou'sc, did not vote for Laird.
In regard to the "tricks," we will say
that it did not require trickery to in
duce the citizens of Webster ccunty
to vote for Laird and Thorne. On the
contrary, there would have been over
a hundred more votes for the so-called
bolting candidates, if it had been
more generally known that they were
in the field.

these premiums are offered as an in

not equal to some other States, is
abundant and sufficient.

IOWA vs. X2S3ASXA.
Some weeks since W. H. Ludlow,
Esq., of Red Cloud, wrote a letter
which was published in the Laporte
City Progress, Blackhawk county,
Iowa, in which was set forth some of
the advantages of this part of Ne
braska as compared with Iowa. The
paper above named comments thereon
at icsxth, and as it i a question of
geaeral interest we will copy the re
marks, aad endeavor to answer the ob
jections. The Progrem says ;
Very aaaay of oar readers ia this
seatkm of coaBtry are well acqaaiated
with the writer of tho above, aad will
read with amon iateret anything he
mav have to say about the. eoaatry to
which he has migrated. Bat k may
be a little ama-ing to aone of tbesa,
arh'ea he asks them lo eoatrasthw
rm.bonnr aauktea country with this
state. We have beea a resident of
Iowa for about twenty-two years, aad

Nebraska nad Kansas, frequently, aad
oat of oar plethoric granaries have
relieved the aateriag aad fitiaiaaiag
of these states. How aay ataa that is
familiar with the prosperoas condition
of agriculture ia the great valley, be
tween the two great rivers, the Mis
inppt aud the Missouri, a' oar es
teemed friend who writes the above
article is, can, in his imagioatioor
make any contract in favor of the
district of country lying west and
southwest of of the Missouri river, is
oot esially understood Admit all he
says about the early spring, early gar
dening, early sowing, and early plant
ing, but of what avail is it, if, before
the harvest time, the hot and wither
ing rays of the saa daring weeks and
months of drouth which is so preva
lent in that country, reduces their
broad acres of wheat, corn, oats, and
potatoes, to dwindling dwaifich stems
and as inflatnable as a dry room to a
powder house. And again, should
this early vegetation which every hus
bandman always looks upon with so
much pride and exultant joy in antic
ipation of an abundant harvest, pro
gress even to the very day of its ripen
ing it may yet be swept away in a sin
gle day, even in a single hour, by tho
legions of gra--hopeni that so often
intest and devastate that unfortunate
country. Contrast that country with
tho beautiful, broad and fertile State
of Iowa? - Not much." Wa can't
see where the comparison eonies ia,
unless it is in the aay friend of ours
once said, after he bad traveled over
this state, and the went, as far an the
Pacific ooait, that, iB viewing the vast
West aa a whole, it Memed to him
that the great Architect, in fashioning
and moulding tnis country, nau drawn
a fanoy picture in his niinJ of a
beautiful valley, far surpassing any
thing in grandeuei that be had ever
attempted before, and the result of
this thought was displayed in the
country between the two great rivers;
and, as if to show the greatest degree
of contrast, a little further west, he
tossed off a thousand m le or morp,
in the mot chaotic condiiion that it
were possible for the mind to con
ceive. In this way we can understand our
friend and correspondent, when he
aksi us to contrast this country with
wcat, and southwest of the Missouri
Wo give the above entire for the
two fold purpose of showing the gen
eral ignorance of our Iowa brother on
all matters pertaining to Nebraska,
and to meet some of the objections
therein given why people should not
seek homes in Nebraska.
We have been a resident of Ne
braska for ten years, and, to use the
language of our Iowa friend, have
never known a failure in the agricul
tural products of the State in that
time, from any cause incidental to the
climate or soil, and but one general
failure from any other cause that of
last year by grasshoppers. We are
willing to concede that Iowa has been
called upon for help in the hour of our
direst uecd, aud give that State all
honor for the benevolent and fraternal
spirit shown by her citizens. They
have done a great and noble work,
and we should be nngreatful, indeed,
should wc fail to give this tribute to
the great and good State of Iowa.
But the inference above given, is, that
Nebraska has frequently been under
the necessity. of appealing to the out
side' world for aid to keep from starv
ing We can find thousands of men
who have lived in Iowa and Nebraska
and arc perfectly familiar with both
States, who do draw contrasts, and
that, too, in favor of Nebraska. It is
a well-known fact that tako a given
period of, say ten years, the average
yield of all the products of this lati
tude has been equal to, and generally
greater, in Nebraska, than in Iowa.
We are willing to have anyone look
up the figures, and the "contrast"
will be in our favor.
The grasshoppers and the "hot
winds" are the great bugbears used to
frighten people from coming to the
State. The grasshoppers do not "often
infest and devastate" thi country.
In fact, they never devastated any
considerable portion of the State pre
vious to the year 1874, and before
that date there was but one visitation
from the organisation of the Territory
up to the year mentioned. That was
in 18G6, and our neighbors in Iowa
suffered a greater loss tban Nebraska.
This we know to be true from out own
personal observation. Iowa and Min
nesota have suffered more, in the ag
gregate, from grasshoppers than has
this State, and in some counties the
devastation was aa absolute and com
plete as here during the last year.
But these States being oldor and
wealthier were able to got along with
out outside aid. We do not refer to
these misfortunes of other States in a
spirit of exultation, but to show that
Nebraska i not the only State that
has been visited by the grasshoppers.
The "hot winds" are referred to.
The frequency of the occurence of
these hot winds is much exaggerated
by those unacquainted with the facts.
Blighting, hot winds seldom come, iu
fact, we have never seen on?, such as is
meant in the above article. Dating
the hottest of the summer months
there are, occasionly, winds that are
"hot" enough. But it is the heat
that radiates from the earth at the
particular place where the beat is felt
Whenever this, or any other, prairie
country is well cultivated aad covered
with growing crops these hot wiada
will never come. Before settlement.
Nebraska, Iowa, aad even JKnois was
equally subject to the so-called hot
wind. -A very little knowledge of
! the natural laws that govern the earth
aad atmosphere will dispel the pop
ular notions concerning these winds.

He has many wirm personal and polit

The Grand IshnJ Times cautions
the farmsrs about sowing the Califor

reason that it bas been tried in this

experiments having been made with
this grain in Nebraska, but we believe
the mention of the fact by the Times'
should be looked to by our farmers,
and if the California barley seed is a
ftilure in Nebraska, it would be well
to heed the suggestion of the Times to
exchange it at Chicago for barley
grcwu in this region, which is kxowa
to do well in this climate."
