vor of that class of people wao
c to have an amendment on the
ibition question submitted to the
rs of the state. The republican
yhas agreed to do this several
s and through divers methods the
udracnt has been defeated by dc-
ing politicians and people who dc-
to sec the movement blocked.
e Chief believes in the minority
well as the majority having their
hts, and if the temperance people
ire to vote on a prohibition amend-
nt to the constitution they should
doubtcdly be given the privilege to
so. There is nothing to be gained
the advocates of high license ob-
ucting the will of the people on
is subject. While The Cuiep does
t believe in prohibition as the great
uacca for the removal of the causes
intemperance, yet it believes in the
ople having their rights. The ver-
ict of the people, whether it be for
r aaint prohibition, should be rc-
pected, and the weak as well as the
trong should be protected in their
ihts, guarar.tced under the cvnsti-ution.
We hereby extend our heartfelt
thanks to the kind people of Hcd
Cloud, who so generally aided us dur
ing the sickness of our nephew, Gus
tave Bartsch, and especially to the
pall bearers. Their kindness will

self-sacrifice, arc filliug office, calling
for a $5,000 lond, in which, from $50
to $1,000. is received and disbursed
annually, at 3 per cent; which is all
the law allows, making a salary of
from $1.50 to $30. The county clerk,
in counties under township organiza
tion, is obliged to make out a dupli
cate tax list, for each township. In
some counties the clerk receires 4
cents per line for the duplicate, the
same as for the original tax list. In
others (and Webster county is one of
them,) he receives nothing for the
duplicate. In this county, I think
only one township collector, took out
a tax book last year, though duplicates
were made out for all. The conven
tion of delegates elected by county
boards of counties under towuship or
ganization, held at Columbus, Platte
county, on Nov. 20th and 21st, sug
gested some excellent amendments in
regard township laws, one of which is
that each township collector take out
tax books on or before the 15th of
November, each year, and collect all
personal taxes and as much of the
land taxes as possible and return to
the county treasurer, on the 15th of
the ensuing September, for collection
by him, all delinquent land taxes.
All state and county taxes to bo paid
into the county treasury, and all
township and district school taxes to
be retained in the township treasury.
In this way the office will bo a paying
one, and will secure the best talent.
I suggest that the school laws be so
amend jd as to abolish the office of
district treasurer, and let the district
school hoard consist of three directors
whose powers and duties shall be the
same, except that the board shall ap
point one of their number as clerk.
Let the said district board draw all
orders on the township treasurer for
school money, and credit his accounts
annually, or oftoncr if they deem it
nccc?sary. Let all state apportion
ments of school fund be paid by the
county treasurer, to the township
treasurer. T.) make it agreeable to
ill interested, the township treaurer
should reside in a ccr.tr.il part of the
township, as nearly as practicable.
However, the tatcr will take t li
point into consideration. The office
nf ii;trirt treasurer is not needed. It
is burdensome o the treasurer, as he
is obliged to give a heavy bond, in
some cases even in county districts as
high as $1,500. He is expected to
draw from tho county treasury, in
person, and disburse all infney be
longing to his district. In many
schools, teachers draw their pay
monthly, which causes the treasurer
to travel, in some cases. 20 or 30
miles from home, in all kinds of
weather, to the county scat, cery 30
days, without pay, or the teacher niu.st
be put to the inconvcnicn:c of writing
for his money. herea, if the school
money was in tho township treasury,
the district board could give the
teacher an order on the town trcssur
cr, on Friday evening st th expira
tion of each month, and he could
draw his money the same evening,
nnrl Bnpnil it all the next day. Mow
