Any of our subscribers who wish
to stop the Journal can pay what
they owe to date, and it will be dis
continued. We afford you, every
week, the means of knowing just how
your subscription account stands. We
say this because of a rather pert letter
received from a short-time subscriber

posed we wished to force the Journal
on him. .
These) are but two ways to pay
debts and live out of your profits or
ont of your substance. If there are
no profits, the substance must be con
fiscated and ruin follows. If money
commands six, eight or ten per cent,
and the average rate of increased
wealth is less than four, it does not
require profound reasoning to tell
why panics and bankruptcy overtake
a man or a nation." Ex.
The Omaha Herald has seen a
cake of excellent maple sugar made a
few days ago by Fred. Jodevine of
Butler county, which is of excellent
flavor, color and fineness, and will
find ready sale in any market in the
world at top prices. Years ago Col.
G. W. Stevens of this vicinity brought
to the Journal office two cakes of
sugar of like description with the
above, made by bis young daughter
from the eap of box elder trees set oat
by himself. Soger made from the
box elder is of lighter color and not
so rank as the maple sugar of com
merce. There is no doubt but Ne
braska can provide herself with all
the sugar she wants, by raising sugar
j beets, sorghum, maple or box elder.

"fi. G." of Woodville writes a
letter to J. S. Freeman of the Alliance,
in answer to an Invitation to be pres
ent at a county meeting, in which he
says: "My sympathy is with your
.order. I am not a member of the Al
liance for the reason that there has
been no organization in this part of the
county, bnl I hope to see the time
when Platte and every other county
in the United States may be fully or
ganized into an Alliance or something
that will crush out this cursed monop
olising power that has so long been
pressing the people of our country."

The growth of Nebraska this year
will be unprecedented, and will in
crease her population many thous
ands. Among the new comers will
be many who have heard of Dr. Fish
blatt, formerly of Dee Moines, now of
Omaha. The Doctor has, in the brief
period of his Nebraska residence,
built up a very extensive practice,
and it is safe to eay that in every
county in Nebraska will be found
people who can testify to the efficacy
of his treatment Mrs. Susan Tale of
Chariton, Iowa, says: "I began to
improve immediately after I began
your treatment, and in a very abort
time was completely cured.
I am now perfectly well, and thank
you for my life." 50

State Attorney Vmwmpmmjt
With the celebrated comedian, John
Dillon, supported by Walters' Come
dy Company, will appear in this
place for one night only, April 11th.
This is one of the best companies ever
in Columbus, as they have' played in
all the cities in the west and received
very flattering notices from the press.
We copy the following from the
Council Bluffs Republican: "Last
evening Dohany's hall was crowded
to repletion by the elite of our city to
witness the "State's Attorney," ren
dered by the Walter's company,which
is supported by the inimitable come
dian, John Dillon, and Mr. Scott
Marble, author of this great play, to
gether with Miss Nellie Walters, Mrs.
George Walters and others, all going
to make up a strong company. The
"State's Attorney" proves to be one
of the best and most taking society
dramas of the day. 1

As the Journal goes to press on
Tuesday evenings we could not give,
in our last, the result of the city elec

credibly informed that in the vote for
councilman in the first ward there
were fifteen ballots cast for Bagatz
and Delsman, that do not appear as
having been returned at all and canvassed.

raised by a reconsideration of the
vote cast April 2d, that instead of
3 1-5 mills they raise 11 mills to the
dollar assessed to the district. A vote
of thanks was tendered the school
board for their diligence and careful
ness in their extensive business, in
cluding building of school house for
the district. Supt. Moncrief was
present at the meeting.
At the annual school meeting of
this place, Daniel Brooks was elected
moderator and by the request of Wm.
Ripp (the director) a committee of
three were appointed to examine tho
books and accounts and report at the
adjourned meeting evening of April
9th; the committee appoiuted wero
F. M. Cookiogham, D. Robinson and
George Zimmerman, who have ex
amined the books, etc., and report all
right. The district unwittingly voted
nine months school with an appro
priation of 3 1-5 mills to the dollar
assessment, which is about one-tenth
of what is wanted. C.
Ed. Journal: Through some pub
lic conveyance or means, I would
like to get a correct idea of what the
fundamental principles are of the new
party called the County Alliance. The
definition of the word Worcester
says, Is a confederacy, affinity, a com
bination of indiyiduals, a collection
of parties, &c. Now this covers a
broad field of operation, seemingly
without limit, therefore dangerous,
for there is no telling where it may
end, after drawing to its ranks such a
maze of followers as our mixed popu
lation and mixed ideas will produce.
It teems to me that the name covers
too much space to be safe, aud that
the platform and by-laws should be
limited and published so that people
sight know just what they are going
to undertake. I believe that the ma
jority of new parties mostly fail for
two reasons; first the founders start
a foundation so broad that they can
not procure material sufficient to add
anything to the superstructure, do not
know where to commence to build,
and the result is, to use an old saw,
have taken a larger bite than they can
Mchaw." The other reason is the op
posite of the first ; the platform or
foundation is started so narrow and
so contracted, and they build with
such rush and vim that they get up
so high before they see the danger of
their position, they become giddy
headed aud fall with a great splash,
but fortunately no serious harm done
to the community. I am inclined to
think the main principles and ideas of
the County Alliance are good, and a
great amount of good can be accom
plished if they are careful! v and wise
ly carried ont Let them carefully
define their position and intentions,
and publish the same so the people,
know what they undertake and en
dorse, and then if they grow, they
grow with strength that will be res
pected and feared by the opposition.
