"The other night two of my hor
ses wandered on to my neighbors
farm, he found them and put them
in his barn. In the morning he re
fused to let my wife have them till
she paid him $2. Does the law of
Nebraska allow him to do this? My
farm is in Creston. Please answer
this through your paper aud by so
doing you will oblige yours truly."
In answer: our inquirer will find
the Nebraska law on the subject at
pages 83 and 84 of the general stat
utes: "the owners of cattle, horses,
mules, swine and sheep in this state,
shall hereafter be liable for all dam
age done by such stock upon the
cultivated lands in this state, &c."
The subsequent sections provide that
Utlie person damaged may have a lie'n
upon such trespassing animals, for
the full amount of damages and
costs, but does not leave him the sole
arbiter of his own damage. It is
lawful for him to notify the owner
of the stock of the amount of dam
age claimed, and that ho holds tho
stock ; also naming an arbitrator in
case the amount of damages is not
satisfactory to the owner of the
stock; in which case ho may name
an arbitrator and they two a third,
whose decision may be filed with a
justice and operate as a judgment.
A law of '79, page 1G5, provides,
"No cattle, horses, mules, swine or
sheep shall run at large during the
night time, between sunset and sun
rise, in tho state of Nebraska, aud
the owner or owners of auy such
animal shall be liable in an action
for damages done during such night
time." A law of 1SS1 amends sec
tion eight, muking it read: "culti
vated lands within tho meaning of
this act shall include all forest trees,
fruit trees aud hedge rows planted
on said lands, also all lauds sur
rounded by a plowed strip not less
than one rod in width, which strip
shall be plowed at least once a year."
These are the provisions of law
bearing upon the case, and our cor
respondent can draw the inferences,
aB well as wo. It will be noticed
that the legal claim is proportioned
according to the damage done.

President Garfield had a relapse
on Saturday last; the ncw3 spread
over the country with lightning
speed, producing great anxiety
among the people, which was in
tensified when it was known that
the consulting physicians had been
telegraphed for to hasten to Wash
ington. Tho bad symptoms, so far as wo
can learn, resulted from the stoppage
of the flow of the pus from the
wound, which produced a chill, and
when it subsided, was succeeded by
a very high fever. IIo was more
restless during the night and had
another chill just before midnight .
After the consulting physicians,
Dr. Hamilton of New York and Dr.
Agncw of Philadelphia, arrived, a
consultation was immediately hold
and a surgical operation decided
upon to reach the cavity of the pus.
A horizontal incision was made
about three inches below the wound
as it would intersect the channel,
and relieve the difficulty; this was
followed by a discharge of pus, which
was from the cavity such as had been
anticipated. The operation was pro
nounced a decided success.
The latest reliable news from the
President at this writing is July 25h
12:30, a. m., which says, "there is
no unfavorable change in his condi

"We have heard the uamoof Hon.
M. B. Reese, district attorney of the
Fourth judicial district, mentioned
by members of the bar for tho su
preme bench this fall. If Mr. Reese
will allow his name to be used for
this office, we have not the shadow
of a doubt but that he will receive
the nomination. We know of no
other mau in the state so eminently
qualified for tho supreme bench as
Mr." Reese no other man who so
nearly haB the entire confidence of
the bar, or whose nomination would
be urged by a larger constituency.
However, we do not know that Mr.
Reese would wish his name to be
used in this connection. Wo have
no knowledge that he will allow
himself to be brought forward as a
candidate, even if a favorable oppor
tunity oflers itself."
Now, while we have no objection
to Mr. Reese, but believe he would
make an excellent judge, neverthe
less we see no need in making a
change at this time. Judge Maxwell
is known to the entire bar of the
state ; he makes no mistakes ; his
integrity, ability, and impartiality
are unquestioned, and wo believe the

Mr. Editor: There is one Biibjcct
I wish to call your attention. It is
the importance of boring or drilling
one or two holes in Platto county to
test if coal is not to bo found
there. This village has contracted
with a man to put down a drill hole
twenty-five hundred feet in order to
obtain a flowing well to supply the
towu. They are now down twenty
four hundred feet, and water pour
ing out of it at the rate of 100 gallons
per minute. In my opinion this is
a question for the county instead of
a few farmers combining to do it.
If Nance and Platte counties would
give the required amount of bonds
and get the man who is at work
here to put down a drill hole about
two thousand feet, they would do a
good thing. The pcoplo have money
to give corporations. Have they
none to bore for coal for themselves ?
It would not cost much if the coun
ties of Nance and Platto would go
equal parts aud drill ou the bounda
ry of tho counties. There arc three
veins of coal hero.
