Meeting at Hellevue.
At a lanje and enthusiastic meeting of
lh ritiz.'in of I't'llevue and vicinity, held
at tin; Ht'llevue House, February 19th,
JS-37, called for the purpose of investi
gating the dillieuhies in Douglas county
in regard to claims upon the Ful.lio
Lands, James S. Allan was called to the
Chair, and C. D. Keller was appointed
Secretary. The meeting was addressed
Ly several gentlemen, showing conclu
sively the importance and necessity of
decisive action in the protection of claims.
On motion, a committee of three was
appointed Ly the Chair to draft Pream
bles and Resolutijiis expressive of the
sense of the meeting. The Chair ap
pointed Messrs. Hollow-ay, Lovejoy and
Gwyer said committee. The committee
returned and rejxmed the following,
Whereas we, the citizens of Jli.llevue
and vicinity, have heard with deep regret
of the recent venal attempt of a class of
persons attempting to take, ly force, the
claims of actual settlers in Douglas coun
ty, and pariieulai ly in the vicinity of
And Whereas, we believe it to be our
right and duty to protect ourselves and
neighbors in the equitable possession of
claims, and if necessary, oppose force to
force, and to any extreme. Therefore
Re.whvd, That we will sustain each
other and the settlers of our sifter com
ties in all equitable right in the possession
of claims, and that a committee be ap
pointed by this meeting to proceed to
Omaha to-morrow to confer and act with
the citizens of Douglas county.
Resolved, That we will at all times hold
ourselves in readiness with the means that
nature and art may place in our power, to
defend the right of the squatters.
Resolved, That the proceedings of this
meeting be signed by the oflkers and
communicate to the meeting at Omaha
On motion, the Preambles and Resolu
tions were unanimously adopted.
The Chairman appointed Messrs. Hoi
loway, Gwyer, Lovejoy, Dyson, Larimer,
Longsdorf, McCormas, Wore, Smith,
Kost, Allan and Saling said committee.
RhoIvtJ, That the proceedings of this
meeting be signed ly the officers and pub
lished in the 'lk-llevne Gazette,' 'Nebras
kian' and 'Florence Courier'.
JAS. S. ALLAN, President.
C. D. Keller, Secretary.
Jft-lF It is a singular fact, that when
the Indian swears, he swears in English.
There are no oaths in the Indian vernacular.
Farmers, (-uiuViicis, and others who
have a taste for the "sweets of life," may
now have an opportunity of "growing their
own oiigar," from the (.'hinc-e Sugur
Cane. Will it do well in the North t Why
not ? It is c;rown in precisely the same
climate ami manner as the common Indi
an corn, and it requires precisely the
same treatment. Hut will it produce as
much sugar, and of as good quality, in
the North as in the South ? Is our soil
and climate adapted to it f Yes. Its suc
cessful culture in China and Japan, in
precisely our latitude and climate, settles
this point. No finer sugar comes from
sunny Cuba, or from "away down in Ala
bama," than from the tall maples of Ver
mont or Canada.
Northern bees extract as much and as
o7 honey from Northern Dowers as tan
be produced from Southern Dowers. North
ern pears and apples contain as much sac
charine matter as do Southern pears and
apples. In short, there is no good reason
why every family may not grow their own
sugar jut as surely and economically as
they now grow their own corn and pota
toes. Our government have paid liberally
for wed. and have experimented sulli
ciently to test the question, and it is now
left to private enterprise to carry out the
work. Southern planters who supply us
with seed, assure us that the CIimhki
Sugar-Cnne will thrive wherever Indian i
corn wiil grow.
