became very Lime and I turned him out for a
few weeks when ho liecamo better, but when I

covered that a ringbone was forming. I procured
a bottle of Kendall's Spavin Cure and with less

In answer to the queries propounded
by a correspondent in last week's
Chief, signed "Citizen" relative to the
action of Mr. H. S. Kaley in the bridge
airair, wo have gathered the following
facts in the case:
Mr. Kaley's connection with the
bridge contract to which reference is
made was as follows: In the year 1873
the county commissioners advertised
for bids to Jiuild a bridge across the
Republican river. Sonic time before
the lettim: Mr. Marcy representing
Baker, Motney & Co., arrived here and
boarded at the hotel kept by one of the
commissioners, and was seen having
frequent private consultation with
Peter Head, the then chairmen of the
board of commissioners. Their trans
actions wero regarded with suspicion
by our people, which were confirmed
the day of the letting, at which were
represented the King Bridge Co., by
Mr. King and also II. T. Clark and
other companies, So anxious were the
people that this Marccy should not have
the contract, that Gov. Garber prepar
ed a petition to the commissioners and
signed by 10 others, requesting the
citizens to adopt the llowc lrussisruigc,
and that the petitioners would pay the
difference to the extent of $2,00 out of
their own pockets. This petition Mr.
Kaley presented and urged its adoption
by the commissioners. They rejected
it with contempt. Afterwards Mr.
Kaley was employed to prepare con
tract. He first becan to write it on
You should call and see the nice lot

legal cap, Marccy and Head insisted
he should use a blank form furnished
by Marcey, and when Kaley explained
that he could not get in all that he
thought necessary, Head, as chairman
of the board with emphasis demanded
that Mr. Kaley should write what they
wanted and not what the Red Cloud
ring wanted. So Kaley took the blank
and prepared the contract as it had
been agreed upon and which all the
commissioners signed and so far as we
know the contract has never been
questioned. The commissioners ac
cepted the bridge and issued full pay
ment in warrants, it was completed
and we fail to sec tiow Mr. Kaley can
have any relation to the bridge's wash
ing out, or any other defect, since the
contract was their arrangement and
not his, except that he reduced it to
writing in proper form for which he re
ceived a county warrant for three dol
lars. After .the bridge washed out the com
missioners employed Lee S. Estelle to
bring suit against the bridge company,
which he failed to do, and for which
they paid him $40. Afterwards Mr.
Kalev agreed with the commissioners
that he would endeavor to concel the
warrants and if he succeeded they
sheuld pay him one tenth of all he
saved the county, if he failed they need
only pay him a nominal sum of $15.
He filed a bill in equity in the
District court of this county, praying
that the treasurer be enjoined from
paj'iny the warrants, which on hearing
was made perpetual, the contract being
declared fraudulent and void.
Afterwards a party at St. Joe brought
suit in me u. s. court at umnna upon
the warrants, which Mr. Kaley defen
ded, making several trips to Omaha at
his own expense, and defended the case
with all the skill aud ability of which
he was capable, and after "a vigorous
trial the Jury upon special findings
found against the county. He then
filed a brief with the Judge for the
printing of which he paid $13, claiming
judgement in favor of the county, upon
the legal proposition involved, which
the court took under advisement for
about a year, and then reluctently de
cided acainst the countv. for all of this
Mr. Kaley received a county warrant
tor the sum 01 $15, that being all the
money he ever received in connection
with this bridge matter. The truth of
the above can be fully verified by some
of the best citizens of Bed Cloud and

early period in the history of the "pen
insula State" it cannot be supposed
that many white settlers had estab
lished their homes in such an almost
impenetrable morass, constructed
costly dwellings and surrounded them
selves with all luxuries of life, yet a
perusal of these records disclose the
astounding fact, that nearly half a
century ago that portion of the solid
south now inhabited principally by
alligators and wild hogs, was as thickly
populated as a county in Massachu
setts, covered with costly buildings,
abounding in choice cattle, and rich in
general products of the soil. All of
which were lost or destroyed by the
cruel ravages of war. A democratic
administration allowed these claims on
the affidavits of the honest and honor
able members of the party. And the
good people of the whole country were
taxed to pay them. The facts are at
hand and cannot be gainsayed to prove
that more money was paid on the
fraudulent claims of these ancestors of
southern rebels than would be required
to purchase at a fair value all the prop
erty, real and personal belonging to
the residents of the whole State of
Florida. Ways that were darker and
tricks that were meaner than were
ever used by the heathen Chinco were
employed by these people to defraud
the Government. I have no doubt
that after having become enriched by
such a steal, these claimants were wil
ling to bo forgiven, wanted to shake
hands across the bloody chasm, with
those who accused them of dishonesty
and perjury, and were extremely anx
ious to have peace. Is it not extremely
suggestive of what we may expect of
their descendants should an opportuni
ty be given?
The democratic party is the party of
the South; all rebels were democrats
during the war and nearly all demo
crats were rebels. We will admit there
were many democrats who entered the
Union ranks, but nearly all graduated
from the war Republicans, in fact only
one man of any importance remained
in the democratic party and he is now
their candidate for President. If Gen.
Hancock should, be elected he would
be forced to recognize the solidity of
the Southern Democracy by placing in
his cabinet and in positions of trust
and power rebel Brigadiers, Colonels
etc. as a fair representation from the
masses who placed him in office, and
