Calling names cau never take
the place of argument, with an in
telligent community. Any who
wish to debate matters of public
iuterest are welcome to the use of
our columns, which are dedicated to
the exchange of opinions, but low
personalities should never be in
dulged in, aud this has become so
fixed a custom with the Journal
that we are not annoyed by the re

The civil suit which was about
to be instituted by Mr. Scharner
against Rev. Hullhorst for alleged
mal-practice in a very delicate case
of surgery in his family, was com
promised Monday by Mr. Hullhorst
agreeing to pay Mr. Scharner $550.
Under the law passed last winter,
Mr. Hullhorst had no right (so we
are credibly informed having no
diploma, and not a sufficient prac
tical experience) to attempt to prac
tice either medicine or surgery, and
this affair will probably cost him
much more than he has realized from
his practice. As there are scores of
others practicing medicine in the
state who are in a similar attitude
toward the law, it may be well for
them to make a note of this case.
Mr. Berry, who sometime since
sold his farm iu Booue county, and
went to Missouri, pissed through
the city Monday on his way to Holt
county, there to live and die, both
he and bis wife. Land that sells
here for six to eight dollars, is held
iu Missouri at f40 to $75; while
there is an abundance of cheap land,
thousands and thousand of acres
which can be bought for 15 cents an
acre, it is not fit to live upon, owing
to the stones, sand, brush and ague,
the last of which enumeration of
evils is by all odds the worst. Mr.
Berry liked southern Kansas no
better than Missouri. He has lost
some money by his move, but he
has gained very valuable informa
tion, which he expects to utilize out
ot Nebraska climate, soil and stock.

Another Bridge ."Heel tag.
Thursday evening last another
meeting wi held at Town Hall, to
take further action, if necessary,
toward tie early repairing and
completioc of the Loup Fork and
Platte rive: bridges, Col. John Rick
ly iu the clnir.
The conniittee appointed at a
previous metiug presented quite a
lengthy and interesting report,which
was, on motion of J. E. North,
adopted, and the following named
gentlemen were added to the com
mittee with instructions to wait
upon the Board of Couuty Commis
sioners and pes the matter of an
immediate letting of contract for
repairing the Platte river bridge, as
the necessary funds are now availa

The Loap Bridge.
Saturday noon there were yet four
piles to drive to complete the sub
structure ready for the cerpenters to
lay the plank for the floor of the
bridge. All the plank had not been
received, but it was expected that
the piles would be driven by Mon
day evening, and that to-day ("Wed
nesday) would see the bridge so far
completed as to allow of the cross
ing of teams in safety.
The new part of the structure is
considerably lower than the old, but
the connection has been made by an
easy grade. For safety, a railing is
being placed on both sides. The
flooring is of cottonwood plank,
which we believe will be more
durable than pine, though not so
The contract for driving the piles
was let on the 30th of April, to be
completed by the 30th of June
sixty days. There were 140 piles to
be driven. Work was begun Junelst.
The Journal thinks that the bus
iness men of Columbus, and the
farmers south of the Loup (who are
the parties most interested), have
been exceedingly patient at the
delay in the completion of the
bridge. We believe that Mr. Rob
inson, the contractor, is a well-meaning
man, but, at present, the com
munity do, and until better advised,
will believe that this work might 1
have been completed a great deal
Jos. Gardner sends us a nice
sample of English bide oats raised
on his place. By the way, if any
farmer has what he regards aa an
extra good kind of grain or veg
etable, we would like to make the
fact knowu through the columns of
the Journal, so that farmers may
become posted in what others are
doing. You know that emulation
is one of the powerful levers that
move the world of thought and en
deavor. If your neighbor can raise
seventy to one hundred bushels of
corn to the acre, you want to find
how it is done; you may excel him
in some other line, and thus ex
chaugc benefits with him. Some
man may have taken pains and a
little money, and prepared a nice

good wife and daughters to keep

thus command the highest price tor
dairy products. His neighbors and
other, knowing exactly how these
things are done, will not rest easy
until they have as good. And so it
goes with the ten thousand things
that make up our life, whether they
be the mere physical necessities and
comforts, or the higher intellectual
enjoyments and benefits. Let us
emulate. Let us improve by em
ulating our neighbors, friends and
acquaintances in those good qual
ities which make them better men
and women. So, don't be backward
in coming forward with accounts of
all you have that is excellent, and
how it became so.
Editor Journal : Since the mat
ter of refunding bonds, as I am cred
ibly informed, is not likely to come
before the city council or people
very soon, it is perhaps not worth
the while to occupy any more space
in pnblic print in discussing the ex
pediency of the project, further than
to answer the statements in last
week's Journal about the cost of
revising ordinances, and concerning
the city debt, coming trom a coun
cilman whose judgment is entitled
to consideration. But with due de
ference to the gentleman's opinion,
while it i admitted that no more
can be paid under the published
notice of the aunual appropriation
bill than $150.00 for printing ordi
nances during the current fiscal
year, which began on May 3d, 1381,
it was stated to me by the party
above referred to that the printing
of the city charter and ordinances
would probably cost $100 00, and I
had learned before from two other
city officials that there would be an
expense pertaining thereto of $100 00
aside from printing. That was the
reason for making the assertion, that
such work would cost the city
$200.00. This statemeut was made
iu connection with the subject of
official salaries, as directly pertinent
to the funding question, without any
intent to reflect on any one, not
withstanding that the course of in
discreet parties has been the cause
ot creating a suspicion of crooked
As to the other proposition rela
tive to the city debt, no attempt was
made to state thu exact figures.
From the late delinquent city tax
list prepared under direction of
Treasurer Early, it appears that the
amount of delinquent city taxe,
real and personal, from 1S73 to 1S79,
inclusive, is $3,CC5.97, which, added
to the amount of outstanding war
rants on the levies of 1SS0 aud 1S31,
less the money ou hand, would show
about the state of the city's indebt
edness, excluding those claims which
have not yet been audited. Mr.
Early states, that about one third
only of such delinquent taxes are
The council, by its finance com
mittee, have arranged to meet him
the present week, who, with the
assistance of the city attorney, are
expected to adopt such measures as
will insure the speedy collection of
With the showing made, and the
city's resources it will be observed
that if we never have any larger
debt on us than the one at present,
by fair economy on behalf of our
corporate authorities, no refunding
bonds can possibly become necessary
to carry the city along.
The gentleman further states, in
effect, that there would likely be
more satisfaction on the part of citi
zens with the Council's proceedings
if its meetings were more largely
attended. The timber on the square
about the Town Hall, as well as the
hot weather, have doubtless kept
some away, but a better plan is sug
gested in publishing such proceed
ings in some local paper, so that the
public may know what the city
fathers are doing. They are public
servants, and it is proper for us to
ask that their transactions, as such,
be communicated to us through the
press. Spectas tt tu spectabere.
