Ed." Journal : The County Alli
ance at a meeting held at Platte Cen
ter the 17th of March, adopted the
following resolutions :
Resolved, That we, the County Alli-ance-of
Platte county do respectfully
ask the Honorable Board of County
Commissioners to more fully explain
tbrongh the county papers the purpo
ses of the seventy-one thousand dol
lars levied for county purposes or
I am inclined to think the County
Commissioners will pay no attention
to this important resolution, for the
reason that there is no such levy made.
The Alliance Is a' little mixed up;
they have got the January estimate of
expenses twisted into a levy of taxes,
when the levy cannot be made till
June of each year, and then the com
missioners will cut under the estimate
all that they judiciously can.
The next resolution is more to the
purpose, and seems to do away with
the first. It reads :
Resolved, That we as a County Alli
ance will take steps to ascertain where
and how our county funds are ex
pended. I hope, for the general edification
that the second resolution will be car
ried into effect, provided they publish
the result of their investigation. There
has been a groat amount of random
talk, mixed with some fact, in refer
ence to the use and expenditure of the
county funds. It is a matter that
should be looked into, aud the people
HbUUia tie in Turin od in oil ouvU cuuuiy
business affairs; thoy should be better
understood by the voters and tax
payers, and suggestions made for the
help and benefit of the commissioners
when it -can be done in a proper and
unselfish spirit, in place of finding
fault about business that we know so
little about, simply for the want of
investigation and study in such mat
ters. The commissioners hold the
most important office in the county,
for the reason that they have the most
responsibility. They have the over
seeing of the county finances, the dis
bursements of all fonds, the care of all
property, the overseeing of all county
offices, to a great extent, and are held
to account for all miss-cues or diffi
culties that may arise in the County
machinery, and get the leaBt sympathy
from the people for their labor and
pains. Below I have made a table of
the county expenditures by guess as
it occurs to me somewhere in the
neighborhood of the yearly disburse
ment of county funds. Some items
are, I think too high, while others are
perhaps low. In the clerk's fees we
include the expense of making tax
list, and postage used in the office. In
the treasurer's fees I include the pay
of deputies, stationery and postage.
Court expenses includes juries and
witnesses. Sheriffs fees includes
turnkey and board of prisoners, and
bonds includes interest and five per
cent, of principal. Twenty-five per
cent, of levy not drawn.
Clerk and deputies, &c, average.. f 2,000
Treasurer, deputies, Ac, average . . 3,000
Commissioners, average 1,000
Sheriff, deputies, &c 2,500
Assessors 1,500
Road Supervisors 1,200
Coroner and attendants 400
Com. Insanity and attendants 100

District Court expenses 3,000

Roads and Bridges 0,000
Delinquent Tax 15,000
Bonds and Interest 15,000
Election Expenses 300
County Matters at Court 200
County Attorney 250
County Superintendent 500
We would suggest to the Alliance,
that they appoint one of their best
men to sit once a month at the com
missioners meetings, and with them at
their annual settlement for the pur
pose of learning where the money
goes, and report his observations to
the public through the county papers.
He can also take in the board of
equalization, and seo who pays the
taxes. The records of the county are
accessible, and such information
would be of great benefit to all. There
are a great many who would be will
ing to be taxed for money to be used
for the purpose of diseminating such
knowledge. X.
Ed. Journal: In your issue of
March 28th I notice two items, which
in my humble opinion is not either
beneficial or proper for the lovers of
pomona's rare products among your
many readers.

grafting the grape vine (by whip
grafting) by which even a whole vine

the tops brought together, a graft iu

as aa easy and quick way of renovat
ing an orchard of inferior varieties
Jnst so the grapevine can be grafted
but the process or modus operandi i
so uncertain and so difficult of opera
tion on account of the time at whicl
it must be done ; that certainly if w
wanted a better variety, we shoult
prefer to buy and plant it, believinf
our chance of eating the fruit wouh
be far more certain. I might, die
space permit, describe the different
modes by which the grape is grafted
but let this suffice, they, and alsi
'Whipgrafting are not new, but as ole
as the art of the horticulturist itself.
2d. The advice on account of cheap
ness to buy root-grafts in preferenct
to trees, is at least injudicious from
the fact that forty-nine out of ever)
fifty of your readers would certainlj
fail In raising them to sufficient size t
plant in orchard. And we do saj
moBt emphatically, with twelve yean
experience in Nebraska, that if wt
wanted our orchard to be a success,
we would gladly pay twenty-five
cents each for good, nice, thrifty, and
clean four year old trees, than to plant
any other age as a gift Our windy
and severe climate, with its occasional
severe dryness, demands it. I have
quit the nursery business and have no
axe to grind, but I assure your read
ers they had far better pay a good
price for a good article of sufficient
age than to take a good deal of the
trash that is bought as a gift. I have
a ffreat mpat r. i j -MJ-"
riculturist, but it (like other papers)
is not at all times to be followed, as

RESOLVED, That all delinquent per
sonal taxes not paid by April 15th,
1883, be placed in the hands of a collector
for collection by sale aud distress of
property to satisfy same adding a fee of
five per cent, and costs of sale as pro
vided by law.
The above resolution, adonled bv the
County Commissioners, will be complied
with to the letter,
Special Inducements.
Since the distribution of premiums is
over and our Premium List closed until
next year, we are yet anxious to increase
the circulation of the WEEKLY BEE to
such a number as to greatly reduce the
cost of the paper and to furnish it to our
subscribers at a mere nominal price. In
order to do so, we offer the same for the
balance of the year, from now until Janu
ary 1st, 1884, for ONE DOLLAR. This is
the lowest price ever asked for any west
ern journal of the size, and all should
avail themselves of this liberal offer.
