Some whj or another the report has

little if any practice before tho courts

we have taken the pains to obtain

of our courts. Hero they ale:

Justice of the Peace.
Mr. Maurer Is perfectly able to con
duct the eases intrusted to his care
but if a case is of such magnitude that
it demands tlio assistance of an older
and mote experienced luwjcr he does
not hesitate to employ him. The
refolds of the courts show n above are
siilllcioiil to .sliow that Mr. Maurer en
joys a lucrative practice and lias the
coiitlduucu of his clients.
When one finds he is out of sym
pathy with ids town, and can only Miy
a good word for it coupled with an
apology, lie ought to get out. Many
people full into a sort of unconscious
habit of growling. Rut it's a mi.er-

able habit. Such people make of
themselves a di-ad weight, while, of
course, they imagine themselves par
ticularly independent. The individu
al has about all he can do to get along
under his own loads, and ha wants
help and encouragement from those
going his way, and who arc identified
with bim in interest. So with,, .the
town, It has its interests to caro, for,
;and it needs al the pluck, alljlthe
;en,ergy, all the.oo-operatbpn and. Ufclp,
.fulness its citizens.. can providerd J

least takes on the qkaracter of .tho
man'. So loyalty t9 pne'(s town .is, no
more than loyalty to oue's self: and
this loyalty Is In the line of all well
Bhaped human nature. Therefore It
Is right to say that Uie.man who does
not stand up for his town Is in some
way dwarfed. There Is something
wrong about him. His fellows will
pais tills judgement upon him, and
tlio chances are that while lie may add
to the discomfort of othcis ho will not
escape making himself unhappy.
The Columbus Telegram, one of the
leading democratic weekly newspaprs
of this state, has asNeo ongressnmn
Hitchcock to withdraw from the seua
toiial racebecauso the Telegram lias
just discovered sotiiethlugawfiil about
Uio. Hitchcock but which cannot bo
revealed on account of its being u
whisper seciet. For shame! if the
Telegram lias any facts as to the mis
conduct of Mr Hitchcock let it be
published if these facts are of such a
nature that "iionelf respecting citizen
of Nebraska would vote for the aforo
said Hitchcock If he know those facts."
The Telegram says that It cannot tell
those terrible secrets because it pro
mised not to roveal them. Stage
whispers, campaign thunder, social
tea gossip. Does Hro. Howard expect
us to crtdit his statements upon his
assurance that lie has suddenly found
out that Mr. Hitchcock Is a terribly
bad man but lie won't- tell why? "If
you knew what I know" is a pretty
weak defense for a politician as old at
the game as Bro. Howard.
These sighs and innuedOB which aro
apparently for the purpose of intimid
ation are unworthy of the conduct .f
auy respectable newspaper and wo aro
surprised that Bro. Howard should so
far forget himself as to stoop to such
methods. If the Telegram has such
facts tho people will bo pleased to
have them but simply saying that ho
has something P his sleeve but can
not lot it bo known is too much like
a lady intimating that she has some
letters that would not look well in
print. In tho opinion of this editor
it would bo far bettor to either keop
still or elso produce tho proof.

of dollars. '
The present Primary Law is a needless double-tax upon the taxpayers,
and should bo repealed.
The Agriculture Interest of our County demands better road.-,. A law
should be enacted providing for smaller road districts in the counties, with
local self-government. All moneys lor roads and bridges should be equitably
apportioned and distributed among the several counties.
