this city with ten elephant-, had eleven
on board when tbe car doors wero open

A baby elephant was found lying upen

during "tho previous night. We believe
this is the fir.t cos of an elephant hav

The latest effort to bring Mr. Bob.

"Mr Ingcr-Hjll," aid he, "a man of

The following is an account of a fight
between three detectives and four of the
famous Doc Middleton gang. Tho Ha
zen spoken of as hating been abot in
three places is the Fame who spent sever
al days in Red Cloud a while back. Wo
formed a tolerable intimate acquaintance
with him, during his stay here, and
found him to be a well informed and cor
tcous gentleman, and it is with regret
that wc learn of his misfortune
Omaha Neil, July !!!. Tho News
gives account of a hard fight between a
body of detectives and four desperadoes
efthe Doc. Middleton gung of thieves
and murderers infesting the country of
tbe Niobrara. It occurred on Monday
on one of the branches of a creik culled
Long Pino, 140 miles nortli of Giand In
land. Shots were fired by two "detect
ive and returned by the deeperedoes
with effect on each side, though no lives
were lost Hazen, ono of the detectives
received three balls, one in the neck, one
in the arm and the third passed through
below the ribs, coming out near the back
bone. S. Llwellyn, another detective
who was present Ht tho fight, is missing,
and the remaining detective escaped
without injuty. and made his way to
Columbus, 15U miles ditant. Middleton
would have been killed only that the de
tective's revolver niNsed fire four times
He was badly wounded in tho groin, and
it is thought he will die, but is being
cared for by friends.
Arrangements had been made by tho
detectives to decoy Middleton out and
capture him, with A-hai success tho fol
lowing account of the affair from tho lipa
of Hczcn, will show.
Columbus Neb., July 25. Detect
ive Hozen enmo into this city this morn
ing, attended by a posse of soldiers, and
boarded train No 4 for Omaha to-day.
He is very weak from his wounds, but is
in a fair way to recover. His story dif
fers materialy from that told Likens, in
that Hazen i-aye that Llewellyn stood by
him during the fight, and was shot
through and through, and that tho last
he saw of him he wa staggeriog toward
the Laughing Water to get a drink, his
his horec having been shot from under
him. He has no doubt that Llewellyu is
dead. The men who brought Hasen in
to this city says that they hunted for
Lleweyn tbouroughly in the direction
Hazen said he went, but could find no
traces. This would seem to imply that
Llewellyn is not so badly hurt as Hazen
thought, and that he has escaped.
Columbus, July 5. Hazen being in
terviewed in this city this morning,
sj okc substantially as follow.-:
Liewellyn and Hazen met Middleton
on Saturdiy und arranged fur another in
terview on Sunday. They met on Sun
day morning, and after a couplo of hours
interview they rode off, two of each party
tnce:hT, Hiizcn 25 aids behind L!eweu
ami Doc. watching movements. They
had arranged that when they came to the
crus read Hazen was to give a Mgnal,
biid the thiee men, Hazen, Lleweyn and
Lykcns were to cover Doc. and make
htm surrender. But when in range
cf Lykeas he pulled on Doc. without
warning. Doc. says Lykens' gun went
off and his horse threw him, and tha(
the shot tui-scd him. Liewcyu is sup
posed to buvo been .-hot off hit horse by
puc's PouTnde. After Lykens withdrew
inthe brush, Deo. turned to Hazen, who
said to him, "Pass by, Dt-c., and if you
wid not .-hoot I won't," repeating it
three titiiis, staring that the whole thing
was a mi-tike and the matter could be
satisfactorily explained Doc cays, "I
believe 1 will kill you ,' 'No you won't'
said Hazen, an jumped off his horse.
Dpc. shot and hit the horso ia tho shoul
dcr. Hazeu 6n.d on Doc. hitting him
in the abdomen, the ball striking one
inch to the right of his nave), and com
wz out just above tiu point of tbe right
hip. Dec. returned fire, his ball hitting
Bczen under the left arm, coming out
close to the backbone on tbe sme ride
of the ceck. They stopped firing, Doc
saying to Hazen, "You huve given me
my death, and I have given you yours."
They both made off in opposite directions
as best they could, falling every few feet.
After Doc. and Hazen had parteu, Llew
ellyn came aloDg by Hazen and said, "I
must get a horse. Hazen attempted
to follow him, but fell, looking after
Lleweyn when ha got up again, and see
ing him staggerine toward the Laughing
ater, which was the last seen of him.
Hazen made his way to a house not more
than twenty-five yards ahead. -After
Baxenwas attended to ihe man of the
house went in search of Lleweyn. Wot
finding him, he went on to see Doc and
found him at Warner's, wonnded as de-
cnbel above: Doc elated lo him that
it uk itjuiu una tie wuuiu ru ujt iuu uu
lab Haxcn. Doc told the man that
Llewtfyo wtnt away all ri'lit. On Mot.
dy ten men came to tho Iiouk: arvl
asked to mc listen, ome of thtm armed,
but the man would bot let tfVui in. lie
alone with bn wife wtre the only ones
who Mood bv Hiiro. Knoiiup it &
t not fife to leave hi in longer, the man.
under cover of the niht, at 11 o'clock
J Monday evenitu:, left for Colunibm with
liszen this morning.
Doc stated that he thought h would
have to Rive up wot:, but he would frcll
his life very dear if they attempted to
lake him. tie was well armed on hi
bed, and had forty men to guard him, up
to Monday afternoon.
For the benefit ofthoe wbo may not
know the cbiracUr of "D:." Middle
ton, we will say that he id the leader of
a gang of a hundred or moro despcra
doeH who, by their law!e-s acts have ter
onzed the whole Niobrara country, in
the airthera part of thii etate. Toe la
test advices state that the detective Lie
weyn waa not badly hurt, and that with
a detachment of twenty poidier has gone
in quest of the outlaw, Middleton.
It has never btieu the privelege of any
State or country, to witness eo rapid
growth iu its railroid t-ystem as does
Nebraska in laid. Not only do railroad
enterprise-i abound but ihe propo.-ed
lines are actually being built. The B. k
M.aud U. P. Campanies aro unusually
active iu the work, both are determined
upon securing the tiiK'ut portion of the
State, and although the B. Si. M. aro
actively engaged, tho U. P. docs not
appearantly Maud on preliminary move
meuts, but comes immediately down to
business. He-itation is tho only sin of
of Mr. Touzalin, mauy localities where
bonds could have becu easily voted, are
expressing reaction, and do not Lite so
voraciously at every report as they re
cently did. Wo trust the people of
Southern Nebraska will not overlook the
great bcuefits to be derived from keep
ing lines of railroad within our own
State, while near enough the State line
to monopolizo the principal part oT the
trade lying immediately south. The tax
es alone received from two hundred miles
of road would aggregate souio $50,(KK)
per annum, easily paying all subsidy and
a handiomo revcuue besides. lltbron
The Grcwth of Nebraska.
Twenty fivo years ago when Nebraska
was first organized as a Territory, with a
much larger area than at present her
population was 4 .'94. Tho last cen-us
gives the population at 350,410. nearly
ninctecu times as large. But perhnps
the growth of Nebraska cau hotter bo
realized by a comparison with that of
other states. This great growth, the
lire attributes to the character of the
Union Pacific rai'road. In 1SG0 Ne
biaika's population in round numbers
amounted to 29,000, Kansas' 107,000.
Minnesota's lT-'.OOO, Iowa's 675.000.
and Wiscon'in's 770,000. Siuee 1SG0
Nebraska has increased in population
1300 per cent, over twica as much as
Kansas, the next in the fcalc. Up to
the present year Nebraska's per centage
of increase has becu much larger thati
any of the states mentionod, and during
the past eight years she has equalled
them iu actual increase. These four
neighboring states arc the lending states
in the Union, (except Texas) in this re
spect. "This is certainly a marvelous
exhibit when it is borne in mind that
each of these States were in 1870 away
ahead of Nebraska, not merely in their
populations, but in all the agencies that
contribute to tho acceleration of the
growth of any section. They had mil
lions of capital where Nebraska had
thousands; they had thousands of miles
of railway while Nebraska was doing her
transportation by mule trains and ox
team?; they expended thousands iu ad
vertising their resources whero Nebraska
has spent hundreds, and they wield a
political power that Nebraska cannot
hope to cope against. And still Ne
braska baa not only kept abreast with
these great rivals in the race of empire,
but she has rapidly and steadily gained
on them. Djring the last three months
alone, Nebraska has increased her popu
lation by jver ', 0,000, and if that ratio
of increase continues for the next ten
years Nebraska wili contain over half a
million inhabitants at tho end of ISS0,
and about 1,209, 030 by IS90. This is
by no means an extra-acint estimate,
and those who have lived in Nebraska
during the past fifteen years will be able
ta form a faiut conception of what great
exebarges arc impending iu the indus
trial and commercial devclopemcnt of
Nebraska within no very remote period."

In mentioning last week the impor
tant convention in Saratoga to meet on
the Gth of August under the auspices of
the Bankers association, I omitted one
important subject to be discussed there,
ono which has interested public men
here a elsewhere, time out of mind. It
is the adjustment of taxation on an
cquitablo basis. Somo figures at the
Treasury depot nro of interest in ibis
connection. It appears from theo that
for tho last fissal year, the National
Lank, with a capital of $485,250 paid
an aggregate of $15,731,877 of taxes,
divided as follows. U. S. taxes $6,902,
573. Local taxes ("tate, county aod
municipal) $8,829,303. Dividing the
country into gcogtaphical sections, the
foll.'winir table exhibits the amoun' of
national banking capital in each, and
the percent! gc of taxation upon capital:
New England Capital, $167,788,475.
U S. Taxes, 1.1. Local Taxes, 1.7.
Middle States $1S2,SS3,562. U. S.
Taxes. 1 7. Local Taxes, 1.9.
Southern Staacs $32,212,258. U. S.
Taxes, 1 3. Local Taxes, 1.4.
Western Stales and Tor. $102,301,369.
U. 5. Taxes, 1.4. Local Taxes, 2 1.
It will bo observed how littlo the
Southern State paid of this tax, and
how little reason they have to complain
of the burdens in this lino as in all
others of Gov, support The great
Northern commercial centres aro where
this tax falls very heavily, and the Ban
kers complain that it is inequitable and
out uf proportion to the taxation bur
dens of other property. The discussion
of this question and tbe general one of
taxation will be a very important fea
ture of the Saratoga gathering, and
many members of congress may be
there aud learn wisdom from it.
Tbe Ohio democrats have got desper
ate, and being poor nave not stood upon
their soft money polioy in the face of de
feat. In plain language, they have ap
pealed to Mr. Tilden, the representa
tive hard money democrat of tho coun
try, to help them, promisia to do his
bidding This ahows not only that the
democrats of Ohio are hard pressed, but
that the conviction is growing that the
Greenback refudiatiea crazo ia dying
This fact s also confirmed by the con
tinued good reports from Maino and
New England generally. The Green
backers have weakened under tho force
of successful resumption and improve
ment in business, and are coming Lack
to tbeir old republican faith. The re
ceptions tendered to Sec'y. Sherman as
the representative of tbe Republican
policy are indications of the substantial
unanimity of sentiment ia that section
on the finincial question. Maine will
wheel back into tho Republican column.
Some of the papers comment oa Sec'y.
Sherman's circular ordering the paying
out of silver for certain public obh'ga
tions as a new departure. Such is not
the case. The Sec'y. has simply await
ed a safe and certain opportunity to an
Bonnce a policy that was resolved on
long ago, hut which was aot practicable
until now. He Metis ta think it safest
to make haste slowly in such matters.

the city papera say anything regarding
your own ounty? Nothing. Do they
contain notices of your schools, niectinKi,

of other local matters of interest, which
your home paper publi-hcs without pay?
Not ono item. Do they ever ny a word
calculated to draw attentnn to your
country and aid in ?.-. progress an I en

men who take .vtch contracted views of
this matter that unless they are getting
as many qmrc inchcn of reading matter
in their own a they do in a city paper,
they think they aro not getting the
worth of their money. It rcuinls ::n ol
a man who took the largct pair of boots

same as tho pair much smaller, that
fitted him. Ex.
