"Were the farmers of this county to
sit down awl calculate the lossiesult
ing to them by bad roads, they would
find that they of all men should first
atir themselves to secure good roads.
Bad roads moan to the agricultural
population loss of time, decrease in
Talue of their marketable products
and a not inconsiderable loss in wear
and tear of vehicles and horses. A
complete and good system of roads
would be of inestimable value to their
land and its products.
By our dispatches it will be seen
that the couut of the cash in the
treasure at Washington has been com
pleted. Thoro was a shortage of $8
found in the new silver vault and of
$15 in the old silver vault, in all $23.
This is $3,75 a year for the four years
of democratic administration. "When
the democratic party came into power
in 1S85, a count of the cash in the
treasuiy, after twenty-four years of
republican administration, showed
it to be just 2 cents short and the
2 cents were aftcrwrrd found on the
floor of the vault: It is refreshing
to recall the fact that the democrats

for the outSt, but fort jnately the
people of Webster county have had
experience with that same gang in
years gone by and naturally keep shy
of them. Wc take this opportunity
of telling the people the truth in
their case as the doctor is too "mod

Yolsran 17 "So 1
Seventeeu years ago Red Cloud
was but a very small place, inhabited
by a few people who had left friends,
home and former acquaintances to take
Horace Greeley's advice "To go west
and grow up with the country." It
was a great trial, for the Republican
valley at that time was anything but
inviting to the civilized portion of
mankind. Indians, buffalo and wild
animals had full sway, but with great
staying qualities the white man held
his own, and to-dav we find the result
brought about only by perseverance
and industry. The then barren hills
are now made to bloom "Like unto
the Oarden of Eden" with all kinds
of agriculture, etc. About that time
the people conceived the idea that
Red Cloud should have a paper, The
Chief was the result of their counsel,
and from 1873 to this date the paper
has "fought, bled and almost died"
several times in maintaining a liveli
hood from the frugal support that it rc
cieved in earlier days. However it
has lived through all of the trials
incidental to early pioneer life, and
today lives to see its seventeenth
anniversary with a larger and better
support thau any paper in this neck
o' the woods: Many efforts have
been made to squelch the paper for its
manly stand on all questions of im
port to this city, and those who have
been in the way of the city's progress
have felt its sting, and they have been
taught to know their place. This all
has been none in a friendly spirit,
and the consequence is that "ed
Cloud is the metropolis of the valley
and The Chief a living witness of
her grand achievements, thanks to
those who stayed by a fearless and
outspoken paper. The Chief has no
spites er grievances to work out
against anyone, but is here te do what
it can for the upbuilding of Red
Cloud, and will do that at all times
in the future as it has in the last
seventeen years. The Chief will be
found in the front ranks at journal
ism, battling for the rights of the
people with all earnestness, and for
the continued growth of Red Cloud
and Webster county. We again
thank our many friends for their
support in the past and hope to mer
it the same liberal reward in the fu
ture that we have in days gone by.

With great eclat the board of trans
portation in order to make a little
buncombe for themselves announce
with a flourish of trumpets that they
have knocked the freight down ou
coal in this state. It seems to us,
(may be we are wrong) that this de
sire on the part of the board is all
put on to gain favor in the eyes of -the
people, when the fact is known that
there is noL a coal mine in the state
of Nebraska, henca the rate has no
effect on the railroads whatever, as
it is governed solely by the inter
state commerce act. Those who try
to ''feather their nest" and build up
ft reputation at the same time on the
susaceptability of the people, should
Iraild on something firmer than a- coal
rate over which they have little or no
control. Of course the coal jobbery
in this state is a matter of much con
cern to the people and ought to be re
duced if possible but the railroad
commissioners have no more power to
fix the rate on coal that is hauled
into the state than our devil has, (we
wish they had) from- the fact that
coal for Nebraska is loaded on cars in
- other states and therefore comes un
der the head of the inter state com
amerce act. Garher's wisdom would
have been all right could it have been
enforced, but he, as well as the board
knew that it could not be. When
-will men in high places throw off the
cloak of deception and quit catering
to self interests by building hopes
Spun a foundation that is so thor
oughly transparent as the so-called
reduction on coal rates. If there
was coal mines in Nebraska the rate
would be all right, bat as it is, it is
absolutely a dead letter.
The little boys of lied Cloud with
their hook and ladder cart attracted
more attention than almost anything
else. It was a wonderful feat for
these boys, no one of them appeared
to be over ten years, to run 100 yrds
and send one of their n amber up a
16 foot ladder in 25 seconds. Their
work was hardly as artistically done
as was ihat of the Tork company but
it was great for boys. -Biverton En-tenT7
