We propose to do what we conceive
to be our duty as a newspaper publisher,
regardless of consequences, "and when we
see a gross wrong being perpetrated, or a
slackness in iho performance of duty on
the part of officials, we shall call attention
to it, not through ill will, or for spite,
but because we believe that it is our
duty to do so.

We learn that the correspondent
cf the Argus at Inavale who wanted to
know whether the Chief published the
proceeding of the county Commiis'oners,
in full, in times past, was really in ear

that during the time we published the
Chief, we published the proceedings in
full as per copy furnished us by the coun
ty clerk, and if the corespondent wishes
te know more he will have to compare
the files of the Chief with the records
in the county clerk's effice. We were
responsible for their publication accor
ding to cepy only.
A merchant of this town ordered a bill

charge, and then was added the postage

We took a trip to Piverton last Fri
day, the first time that we bad been to

advent of the railroad has worked won
ders with that town, and it is "looming
up" in a way that is cncouragwig. As
we walked the streets we thought it n
pitty that such a go-ahead town should
be located in such a wretched sand bod us
it is. We called on the "Eagle" and
formed the acquaintence of its proprietors
We also dropped in and interviewed P.
A. Williams & Co., Thoy are building
a new store, and when they get it com
pleted they will have the largest buildius
of the kind in town. We met a number
of old friends which wc have not the
space to mention here, but n;iy give
them a "lift" at some future time.

After crossing the Republican we kept
southwest through Smith county, Kan-w-i,
finding some veiy nice countiy, and
some very poor. We put up with Mr.
Oyl&r, a foimcr resident of Webster
county. Friday morning we continued
southwest finding some splendid Geldo of
winter wheat; alio grass of better growth
then in Nebraska, and some fields of corn
that were not lucked, which last speaks
of the thrift of somo of our Kan.-as farm
