and had wo the room, wo should bo
pleased to give each speech, but our
spueo forbids, sulllco it to say, how over,
that Red Cloud has talent in tho lino of
oratory that cannot besuipnsBed. After
tho tonstti woro completed it was tho nig

Upon tho whole Red Cloud had n

Sovoral months ago M, R. Bontley
purchased what was known ns thu Stato
Inmk ut that time, on the statement
that it was clear from all liens, and now
comes a claim of $700 for which thu

Wo omitted to mention on account of

niiived in Craig, Missouri, where ho
staod over Stinilii. A gieut deal has
been said about Mifourl Intel, and
that it was tho garden of the world, Ac ,
while a great deal of the stor is worth
of credence, et oven Missouri hat her
adversities Dining tho month of Mil
she had vet littlo rainfall, and as a con
seqiienco her cropii are not what the
would have bt'Pti had copious rainfalls
been tho case, Oats, wheat and part of
tho fruit crop'i aro short, still corn is
splendid and there is quite a largo aero
ago of small grain. Missouri has her
drawbacks however, and when Nebras
ka is short on crops, that state, as well
as others, aro similarly nireotod. From
Missouri we went north to Omaha, and
thence to Chicago via the llurlingtou
route returning the following Friday.
Passing tlnoiigh Iowa ami Illinois,
where wo could obseivo the growing
crops. All along tho Burlington line,
crops laikcd very nicely, jet thoro lias
been u dearth of rain, uud the com crop
and othei crops aro backward. Coin as
a usual thing is not up with tho Ne
braska article, oven if our spring wns a
little drouth. Times are very dull in
the states named and people there have
that tineas, restless fever as badly as
they have it in other places, and the
only wa that we can see to obviate it,
is to settle down and bo sntislled to let
well enough alone, for thuro will iiIvwijh
bo dissatisfied people, mid if Nebrns
kans take tho fever it will only bo tho
worse for them as theio is no iuiinediato
reined'. The only thing to do Is to
abide by tho consequences at hand and
bo prepared to lloat on tho top wav e w hen
prosperity again I louts over our land.
There is no better state than Nebraska,
and no hotter crops, noil or people than
hero abide.
Rvini'.vli. rou mi. Wi.i k.TIio week
has been hot and dry but the general
rains immediately preceding had left
the ground in excellunt condition nnd
all crops have niadu very satisfactorj
growth. Light rains of a half inch or
less provailed over the stato generally,
except in thu central and outhrastorn
section whore none fell until Monday
night nnd Tuesday morning, but as wo
go to press, light rains prevail over the
state generally. In tho extreme north
western and northeastern comities near
ly an inch fell during tho week. Thoro
has been more Unit) thu normal amount
of sunshine, mid in some localities, hot
south winds have causid thu corn leaves
tocutl somewhat. Small grain contin
ues to nhow general improvement.
Wheat harvest is well advanced in tho
southeast section. Tho straw is short,
in pome cases oven too short to bind and
tho ield is light, but the grain general
ly is of good quality. Ovor most of the
western part of thu stato tho small grain
will bo nearly a total failure. Chich
bugs aro becoming vory numerous nnd
aro beginning to attack corn. The corn
ovorywhoro is in excellent condition. It
has mndo a remarkable growth during
the wook and is now farther advanced
than usual at this b;ubou. Much of it
has been cultivated for the last time.
Tame hay is a light crop but wild hay is
improving and pastures uru everywhere
in good condition. There has been a
largo acreage of millet bown which is
coming up nicely. In Webster county,
corn hati mndo a wonderful growth dur
ing tho week.

Srrmvisoii QorwrioN. Mr. Editor,
(ile ipo allow mo to mako n reply in your
paper to the gentleman who has not tho
courage to sign his naino to tho artlclo
repljing to my Btatoiuontn mado in tho
Nation, In thu first place, he naid hid
table was taken direct from tho tax list
and no guss work. If there is nny mis
takiv in mj table of Webster county you
must hold the editor of the Argus re
sponsible for that as, Mr. Warren pub-
IHhcd that identical table last spring as
utriiocopj of tho tax list iib It wiib thop,
and I suppose it's the sumo to-day, for
tho very purpose jou aro publishing it
now. I simplj cut it out nnd saved it
and jou can seo it in the Nation olllco
jtt. Next, I ask jou why did jou not
publish tho statement of Nuckolls coun
ty iilno? That wan in tho Nation. It
looks as though it must have bcon
against jou. Nsxt, you tell us thntour
valuation increaseii svery jear and na
turally brings our per cent down. Tho
faots are, that the Inst four jvura the
valuation has been from $,'100,000 to
$400,000 less than it wan in 1800. I
would like to call jour attention, too, to
tho fact that we huvo built two steel
bihlgen across tho Republican river that
overjbody speaks well of, and paid cash,
each in each j ear's levy, besides tho low
er valuation, and no bond afterclapp.
Please boar in mind, too, tlint jourtouu
ty levy from 1880 to 188." is far heavior
on jour own statement than any jear
since, and jou bring in township tax in
order to fool the people, but I would liko
to know what tho town tax Iiiib to do
hero; that is, a tax that isat tliepooplo's
own option. It is their own municipal
business. If they aro humanowltli their
poor brutes and wish to spend a fuvv dol
lars each car to save horse llesh and
hard pulling for their horses, they can.
While we paid as high us $8 on tho 9100
valuation ami never received u cent's
woith in tho rural districts for roudsor
culverts. Your can't oven tlnd a high
way road overseer that got fifty conta on
the dollar for his fees under tho old bjb
torn, so where wero wo at? You might
just us well say wo should eat only mush
uud milk and wear $,'1 suits of clothing
in order to save money; that's what
many had to do when taxed wore from
( to fS per $100 valuation. Look up
thu report of Line township; it only
levied linills tax for lBO.'l for town ex
penses, and who dares to put tuoro onto
them? Here is no coward, it's Jack
Kindscher from Heaver crook.
Tun Cm i r duct- not seo any reason
tor personal abuse of tho major and city
council because tho standplpo wna not
tilled last week. Whatever may bo tho
personal feeling between tho monibon
of tho council on any subject in not of
impoi tanco in the enso ut bar, us tho
lawj era would say, an thoy had no part
in thu matter, more than to appoint tho
water commissioner somo weoks ugo.
Our estimable contemporary, Tho Bolt,
siijb on tho matter: "That tho question
hinges on who shrill run tho council,"
etc. and "whnt the council ought to do
is to resign mid call an election to select
now olllcials," or worda to Hint olToct.'
Wo enn not possibly beo tho bearing or
tho relation that tho llro cf last week
has to do with Xho council's resigning.
New olllcera could do no bettor than the
pieaent ones, and a new water commis
sioner could also mako mistakes, henco
we come to the conclusion that our con
temporary is talking through its cylinder
Wo surmiBo that tho criticism comos
from n dosiro to lilt the members of city
legislature n "Bolt" rather than to criti
cise them justly. Tin; Ciiit.r doos not
uphold the "llioticulllng" that hit been
going on in tho council but it believes
in giving tho devil ids duo. 'Iho coun
cil in no more to blumo for thestandpipo
not being full than is theC.arof Russia.
It is one of those peculiar casos whore
it is "be d -- d if jou do nnd bod dif
jou don't" alTairs. TiikCiiiki' behovoa
tlict evory mombor of tho present coun

come ns near doing their duty as any
council that Rod Cloud bus ovor hud
during our our residence hero notwith
standing somo unwarranted criticisms
that huvo boon heaped upon them by
Bomo of Red Cloud's critics. Lot ua
have peace" and with it prosperity and
less hades.
