The following letter from Coigrefs
min MeKeighan to J. L. Miller, was
handei ns for poblieatioo.
Liacoln, Neb., Jan. 12, 1891.
Dear Sir: Yomr letter it at band,
owing to the fact tbat designing per
son! are taking adraatage of free
transportation, it is not likely that
the railroad company will famish fr
freight to any county, nntil it is or
ganized. Adrise yea to eall aiaet
ing of the justices of the peace and
list all needy persona at once, so that i
wc can get aid through tho state or
ganization. I am to meet with the
State Relief Committee this afternoon
and will do all that I can to get mat
ters in shape, but by ail means let
Webster county organize at once and
canvass the county. Get from each
individual a sworn statement of his
condition . This is necessary in order
to get free transportation for coal or
relief of any kind. I will try to get
coal free as a special case, bat may
not succeed. If the county boarl
have not adjourned, you might lay
this matter before them.
W. A. McKkiouan.
There is no use trying to get
around it, there are a great many in
Webster county who must have aid
and that too, roon. Mr. McKeighan's
suggestion is a good one and ought to
be acted upon at onee.

While in attendance at the public
installation and free banquet given
by the G. A. R'a. Monday evening the
Republican reporter aceidently over
heard one of th city, editor's remark
that he had purposely donned an en
larged coat and rest, and then had to
go away hungry. Would it not be
advisable to procure an extension
suit just to be worn on such occa
We don't know just how the lady
editress of the Republican knew that
Bro. Myeraof the Democrat made
sueh an onslaught on the victuals
spoken of on the occasion, but we
have known bin failing for a long
time and Lave begged of him with
tears streaming down both sides of
our "handsome checks" to not give
himself away in such places, and to
always conduct himself as if he had
been used to plenty. Of course John
is lean and it takes lots to fill him up,
but that is no reason why his appetite
should be so ravenour. After he has
learned from experience, as the "Big
Injun" has in the last twenty-five
years to work for nothing and board
himself all things will appear easy.
We beseech of yon John to let up.

Then Elder refused, sa speaker of the
house to 'publish the election returns

the supreme court was resorted to, to
compel him to do so. It caused a
great uproar, hut everything has ap
parently adjusted itself at the present

called out a company ofmalitiatohold

down th governor's position. While
this paper does not go very much on
Boyd or his methods of accomplishing
his election, we believe Gov. Thayer
should have stepped down and out,
without causing so much commotion,
yet we do not believe that Boyd is
entitled to hold the office, if he is not

county attorney. Judge Wilcox was
the retiring attorney, aad claimed
that Harry Hopkins had not complied
with the law in having his sons ap

the board will scat Mr. Hopkias. a
he was the unanimous choice of the
people, although there might have
been a technicality ia the filing of

as a cathartic is due no less to their
promptness and efficacy than to their
coating of sugar and freedom frm
any injurious effects. Children take
