A special to the Slonx Glty Tribune
oontnliiH ( ho following interesting no-
count of the Knox county swxt fight and
the flitimtlon now confronting the
county ofllolals :
"A Borioim difficulty hnfl arisen lu the
preparation of the otlloial lioino of the
county olllclnls of Knox county. The
ntnto supreme court has issued an order
that the county Heat bo changed to
Ooutor on April 1. The moil who have
ohargo of the buHlncnH of thn oonnty
must look up their ollloos in Niobrarn oil
the night of Maroh 111 , and the nox $
morning they imiftt como up niniling behind -
hind tholr desks on the Wlshondorf farm ,
eighteen iiiilos or thoronboutH from Nio
brara. Thers arc no if or amis attached
to the Hiipronio court's order , and if the
order is not obeyed to the letter , the of
ficers imiHt suiter for contempt of court ,
"To prepare for the housing of the
county oIllolalH , the board of supervisors
of Knox county last fall voted an appro
priation of sfl.fiOO for the beginning of
the construction of a court IIOUHO. A
lot \VIIH carved out of the corner of one
of the Wishondorf fields and tnuitiforrod
to the county for the consideration of $1.
Now the opponents of the Ooutor sup
porters have scoured au injunction
ngalnst the miparviRorH provontiiig their
expending this nioiiey for the now court ,
house. ThA final hearing oaiuiot occur
very long before the date sot for the ro-
movnl , and the present prospects liuli-
cato that the county olllcorH , when they
stop from their buggies on n6xt April
'Fool's Day , ' will have no roof.
"It is stated that nothing has boon
douo as yet toward the building of a
town on the site of the now Oontor. ' A
paper has boon started The Oonlor Out
look but it is printed at Wansix. At
last report the ooustrnotion of the bank
building hud not began. It in a long
haul from the nearest town , Orolghtoii ,
to Ooutor and building will bo au ox-
pousivo operation , with no railroad to
carry in lumber. Some of these living
in the nearest towns are debating the
question of moving bnlldirigs bodily
across country. Across the river in
Oharlos Mix county , two years ago , the
three towns of Platte , Oastalia and
Edgorton wcro hitched to 'ropes ' and
snaked across country bodily to now lo
cations. The prospective settlers of
Oontor may emulate the example sot by
the Mouth Dakota townsmen , and the
traveler in Knox county may within the
uoxt three months moot buildings creep
ing along the roads through the broad
prairies to the now town.
"Tho county scat fight that has led up
to this unusual mandate by the Nebraska
supreme court has boon the most re
markable in the btato , if not in the
west. It has been waging for some
years , 1ms sent the voters of the county
to the polls for almost as many special
elections , and has cost the tax payers of
the county the estimated sum of $20,000.
"In the year 1900 a petitlou was circu
lated by Oreighton people asking to
( vote on the proposition of relocating the
comity seat in the geographical center
of the county. The petition bore the re
quired number of signers and was died
Then Niobrara got out with her war
paint and induced enough of the poti
tiouers to remonstrate and withdraw
'their names to impair the legality of the
petition. The couuty supervisors , however
over , allowed the petitioners to'go gun
mng for counter-remonstrances , am
enough names wore put book on the
petition to make it valid. lu the throe
elections which followed , the last oo
cur ring at the time of tbo last genera
election , Oontor won.
"Neither Niobrara nor Bloomflold was
Batisflod , and the fight wont into the
county courts , it being claimed that tbo
petition was illegal. The county courts
uphold the remonstrators , but the state
supreme court , on appeal , has rovorec <
tbe flndiug of the lower court and or
dered the county seat moved to Center

from depot to depot , eighty-five and

made between the two cities.
