A number of prairie fires are

force the laws on this subject tens
of thousands of dollars would annu

Crow Dog, the Indian who killed
Spotted Tail, passed through the city
Sunday, bound for Deadwood,- in
charge of two men. He was inter
viewed in the sign lauguage of the
plains by Ed. Burgess. He said he
killed Spotted Tail; that they bad
him, and he didn't know what they
were going to do with him ; he was
a man yet, and waa not afraid.
The hay harvest continues with
unabated vigor, and there will be
thousands of tons of it for aale in
Nebraska. There is no foretelling
what the demands of the coming
winter may be, but if it should hap
pen as it did last season, some of our
farmers will make money. Last
season was unprecedented, but bay
may possibly reach $15 a ton again.

The fire alarm was given last
Friday on account of a smoke seen
in the "bottoms." The Hookies"
were promptly out, and got well on

the fire was being conducted by pri

for firemen to turn out promptly on

failed to do, because mistakes will
The Odd Fellows of Fremont
passed through the city Wednesday
last on an excursion to Grand Is
land. While waiting for the east
bound train to pass two ladies came
near losing their lives, by the pass
age of the engine. One of them got
out of the way in a hurry, while the
other was struck slightly and whirl
ed around, but escaped without se
rious injury. It was a severe ner
vous shock to the spectators.
The Seventh Day Adventists of
this state will hold their annual
camp meeting at this place, begin
ning Sept. 21st and continuing till
the 27th. Elder G. I. Butler and
other representative men of the de
nomination will be in attendance.
The camp is to be located about one
half mile southwest of the city in a
grove near the Loup bridge. The
principal meetings will be held in a
large and comfortably seated tent,
40x60 feet, while several tents some
what smaller will be pitched for the
accommodation of those who are not
provided with family tents. Their
bills invite everybody.
On last Friday Annie Dee was
arrested on a charge of keeping a
bawdy house. She had a hearing
before Judge Higgins, plead guilty,
and was fined $50. On the same
day, on a similar charge Mary
BeLisle was arraigned. Her hear
ing took place Saturday before
Judge Higgins and a jury, McAllis
ter "Bros, representing the prosecu
tion and Messrs. Sullivan and Bow
man the defence. The case was
tried to a jury of five who returned
a verdict, Not guilty. In this in
stance the Scotch verdict would
have perhaps been the appropriate
one, could it have been rendered
Jaa. McAllister returned Wed
nesday last from hia visit to bis son
James, jr., in Montana. He had a
fine time, and comes back looking
as robust as a Nebraska harvester
or hay-maker. He has a very fa
vorable opinion of that country, and
thinks a poor man can make a good
living there about as easy as any
where. He brings with him some
specimens of the precious metals,
for one of which, .from smelting
works near Salt Lake, and contain
ing gold, silver and lead, he haa our
thanks. Mr. McAllister thinks Salt
Lake is the moat beautiful city he
aver saw. On every hand are visi
ble the effects of the energy and
1 perseverance of the people.
Arnold Oohlrich is expected
home Saturday or Sunday next, at
the farthest. It will be remembered
that several weeks ago we gave an
account of a contest he was having
with some of the petty officials at his
old home, who wanted to make him
do military dnty because he had
migrated from that country before
he had served bis time, and that he
had been fined by a local magistrate.
Well, Arnold has escaped from the
petty tyranny, the officials receiving
high word from Berlin to return
him the fine exacted, and let him go.
Whether thia was done because the
matter had been brought to the
attention of our Secretary Blaine we
are not advised, but certain it is that
the American people would not
have tolerated thia performance.
Dr. Mitchell returned Sunday
from his trip to the mountains. He
givea a glowing account of the
growing cities, the railroads pro
jected and the extensive mines. He
sets down Salt Lake as the prettiest
city he ever saw. All the streets
are eight rods wide (twice the width
of oura) gutters on each side down
which pure, clear water is always
flowing, and along which are ave
nues of trees. The Tabernacle, of
course, is the chief object of iuterest
to straugers half-finished,and twenty-two
years in constructing. The
Dr. says that the younger genera
tions of the Mormona are not favor
able to polygamy, and are, in great
numbers, denouncing the practice.
The Dr. tbiuks the four greatest
cities in this western country will
be Omaha, Denver, Salt Lake City
Do you know where your home
children are this minute? The im
portance of an affirmative answer to
this question has suggested itself to
us several times lately in a very for
cible way. Last Saturday morning
we saw a little boy, probably two
years old, sitting on the rail of the
U. P. track, as unconcernedly as you
please, just after having been pulled
out of certain danger of being run
over by a moving train, and in the
evening, at the A. & N. depot we
counted five boys and two girls,
eight to twelve years old, engaged
in the dangerous business of jump
ing on and off cars in motion. At
another time last week we saw two
little boys cross the track, under a
car, while the train was in alow
motion. Now, none of these were
hurt as it happened, but any of them
might have been seriously injured
or killed. There are dangers and
troubles enough without courting
death by senseless exposure.
While one of our contempora
ries carries away the printing plum
of the Driving Park Association
from the other, and while that other
kicks and howls over the matter, the
Joukxal continues to give without
cost to anybody but itself, all the
features of the Fair worthy of note,
and thia it docs recognizing in the
Association a public institution des
igned for the public good, and not
for mere individual profit or gain.
The Journal acknowledges no mo
tive, in this or any other public
matter, less than the good of the
whole community. The Fair takes
place near this city, Oct. 4th to 7th,
four days. Dr. George L. Miller of
Omaha, editor of the Herald, will
make the address, on the 6th, the
third day, at 10 o'clock. The Dr. is
thoroughly well posted in Nebraska
farm interests, the growth and de
velopment of the Couutry, and will,
no doubt, deliver a very interesting
and instructive address. Half fare
will be given on the branch roads to
Columbus. Everything is progress
ing finely and is in good shape, and
the Fair promises to be a success in
every important particplar. All
concerned are to be congratulated in
this because it did seem as though,
after former experiences, it would
be like pulling against a cataract,
but Platte county has the material
for an excellent fair, and she ought
to have it this time without fail. Let
everybody prepare for it.
On the 17th day of August com
plaint was made before Justice
Bailey by Appoline Michael, against
one Anderson, first name unknown,
charging him with .attempting a
grave crime against her person,
while on a U. P. freight train be
tween Duncan and this place. We
are informed that she is a young
Polish woman, recently married,
and that the warrant was pnt into
the hands of an officer, Jno. J. Rick
ly, a few minutes after the com
plaint was made. For some reason
it has since been transferred to Chas.
Wake, another officer, in wboec
hands it is now supposed to be ly
ing. We are told that this man
passes Columbus often, and it seems
a little strange mat, it these are
facts, the arrest has not been
made in the last two weeks. It was
only a few days ago that a man com
mitted a penitentiary offense in
town, was arrested, and the case
went no further the arrested man
paying quite a sum of money. In
some communities these things
would not be tolerated, aud officers
and others, conniving at them wo'd
be consigned to infamy, as well as
"severely punished. In this case,
Appoline Michael, though a poor
Polish woman, represents unprotect
ed womanhood. If Anderson is
guilty let him suffer the consequen
ces, as other criminals ; if he is in
uocent, a hearing will remove the
stigma cast upon him by the young
woman's complaint. Our columns
are open to the officers to make any
explanation of the matter they may
have to give. Since writiug the
above we arc informed that Mr. An
derson has declared his willingness
to appear at any time that might be
appoiuted, and answer to the charge
against him, and that he says that
when the woman said she bad no
money to pay her fare, and made
for the door, he supposed she was
going to jump off the train, and that
he caught her, and held the door to
prevent her trom injuring herself
and that not being able to talk Pol
ish, and she no English, she doubt
less misnnderstood bis intentions.
Byron Millelt, Esq., County Att'y,
says that the resolution of the Platte
county Commissioners, rescinding
their bridge levy is absolutely void,
and was done without hia knowl
edge, advice or consent, at a meet
ing of the Commissioners at which
he was not present.
Under date of Aug. lltb, Mr.
Millet is in receipt of a letter from
the att'y general of the atate, Hou.
C. J. Dilworth, as follows :
"In my judgment the County
Commissioners, at the time fixed by
law, bad the authority to levy the
necessary tax for county bridge
fund aa provided by sec. 77 of the
revenue law, as amended on page
322, laws of '81. The question has
not been passed upon by the Su
preme Court, and until that is done,
of course the question is an open
one but unless the above construc
tion is given, the law will be en
tirely inoperative this year, which
could not have been the intention of
the legislature. I have so advised
persons heretofore writing to me
upon the subject from other coun
ties." The Institute.
