Give us a rest. THE disinterested ( ? ) booming of lleg ister Laws for the state secretaryship by the bung-hole-ocrats of Hastings ant this city is simply side-splitting and mirth-provoking in the extreme. Rich ard dear and his hoity toity man Friday of our city are just consuming themselves with anxiety to browse from the govern menfccribat this place. Hence the why ness. FEIEND BISHOP of the Courier give : it out sub rosa that he has quit forevei the political arena the pursuit of po litical happiness and that the state senatorial bee no longer buzzeth in his little political head-gear. His friends are using their most strenuous endeav ors to have him reconsider this strange , but firm , determination , sad to relate , and sorrowful too , without avail. The loss to future statesmanship will be in calculable. HON. Gr. L. LAWS , of McCook , is men tioned as a probable candidate for sec retary of state , , and if he will have the office no more popular or better man for the place can be found in this end of the state , or , for that matter , in the entire state. Homerville Record. While THE TRIBUNE has no assurance that Register Laws desires or would ac cept the nomination occupying as he does a much more remunerative position now his nomination would be clearly the wish of the Republicans of the val leyif he would accept it. THE Indians at Rosebud agency went on a strike the other day. The agent refused to give them their agricultural implements unless they would agree to use them upon land that he designated. They promptly held a meeting of the lodge and ordered a strike. They used the moral suasion so familiar to the people along the Missouri Pacific , and to so much effect that the agent handed over the implements and set up to the red strikers three barrels ot ; sugar and a job lot of fancy groceries. The red man is rapidly becoming civilized. GE.V. MILES' first experience with Geronimo has been somewhat discour aging. That warrior was surprised. , as it were , and driven from his camp , but he came right back the same night and returned the compliment , according to all reports , killing six of the' soldiers who were out to fight him. It seems that Miles has sent back the Indian scouts and proposes to fight white men alone against the Apaches. It may be after all that he is not the lightning In dian fighter that the enemies of the vet eran Urook have been painting him. But he has ability , and after a year or two of experience may come out all right and capture Geronimo. LIST OF JURORS Drawn to serve at the Ma1SS6 , , term of the District Court : LEBANON. H.

EniTon : In your issue of the latl. inst , your article , commenting 011 Hie actioi of certain parties on the Driftwood in refer ence to contested claims , calls for criticism , Of the cases to which you refer i know noth ing , but it is the principle of the tiling Avhicli 1 complain of. Tins contesting business has grown to be such a manifest evil , th.it some thing should be done to check it. 1 do not re fcr to those claims which have been aband oned , but where the law has been complied with , i wish to cite one or two instances , out of many , which have come under my per sonal observation. I could give names , but facts arc suflicient. Last winter , a man who was laboring fifty miles from ilcCook , re ceived notice that a contest had been institu ted against his tree claim located in that vi cinity , ' contestant alleging that there had never been , broken , or planted to trees , seeds , nuts or cuttings , to exceed five or six acres. " The claimant , very naturally , felt "somewhat aroused , " knowing this to be absolutely fake in every particular , as he had more than eleven acres by actual measurement broken , the whole of which he had caused to be planted and cultivated as the law requires , lie resolved , forthwith , to have contestant and corroborating witness arrested for per jury. He left his work and came to ilcCook for that purpose , but after consulting the best lawyers , fouud that nothing could be done till he had substantiated his allegations at the trial. The day appointed for the trial came. Clahnmitrvvith his lawyers and wit nesses were on hand ready to prove that he had fully complied with the law. When the contestant was examined he thought , guess ed , or supposed , that such things were true , but could not swear to a single fact. He wanted the claimant to give him 510.00 to withdraw the contest "No , " said he , "not ten cents. I want you to go on with it. " He could get no witnesses who knew any more than he , so postponed the trial for two weeks , in order as he said to get important witnesses. When the two weeks were up he never ai > - peared. Xow , you say if a man has complied with the law he has nothing to fear. Has he nothing to fear ? Is it a small tiling for a man to lose his valuable time and go to the expense which this man was obliged to do , only to gratify a man or set of men , whose object was robbery ? What remedy would you propose in a case like this ? i wish to say right here though , that in a majority of the instances which have come under my ob servation the contestant was not so much to blame as tlui agent who "set him on" and re ceived pay for it. I had intended to give another instance or two , but this article is al ready too long and I forbear , but in conclus ion 1 must say that bulldozing or not some- tiling should be done to treat these contes tants and their agents to a liberal dose of rawhide.
