an editor, and 3Ir. King dead, you
may be in the hole sometime, ed

When the editor of this paper was
appoiated pastor of the Red Clomi
31. E. church over thiee years ago,
Will N. King was the editor of the
Helmet, published in that city, We
immediately began building, and Sir.
King promised $5 provided he did
not go to prison for a cowardly as
sault he had made upon a prominent
citizen. He did not languish in pris
on, though no fault of his, however.
Neither did he pay that subscription.
Now this young man is allowed to go
to the poor farm of Douglass county,
to end his days more comfortably
than in jail, being in rapidly failing
health, and under sentence for for
gery. The poorhouse would contain
an interesting throng should it envel

to church enterprises. Nebraska

'Morning newspaper, the first numbc

paper, and is printed on a complete
mew outfit. The Dispatch presents
a creditable appearance for a first jssuc
and gives promise of supplying Deca
tmr with a reliable morning daily
ewspaper. It will be Republican to
the core. Dr. W. F. Calhoun is the
editor and proprietor, and he will be
assisted in the editorial department
by Jack Crane, awriterof fine ability
Dr. Calhoun has attained some
prominence in the politics of this
State, having had the honor of being
Speaker of th e General Assembly for
one term. He is a forcible speaker
and thoroughly posted in politics.
The newspaper field is a new on is to
the doctor, but he has the pluck, en
