The Lincoln Journal remarks that
the supreme court hare decided that

was sentenced by Judge Barnes to
three years in the penitentiary. Im

horse, worth $150, for $2.
A prairie schooner passed through
our streets Friday on the cover of
which was painted in nice black let

ticed by utilizing all the old device
that could be worked into the new.
We asked no questions.
In a decision rendered last week
in the supreme court, in the case of
Traver v. Merrick county, opinion by
Maxwell, J., Cobb, J. dissenting, the
following was held : "A water grist
mill erected for pnblic use, the rates
of toll to be determined by the county
commissioners, and being subject to
regulation by the legislature, is a
work of internal improvement within
the meaning of the act of 1869, and

There are a good many misappre
hensions in regard to assessment of
taxes, and among these is the notion
that it is a part of the business of the
owner to assess the value of his prop
erty. If the matter is examined into
(and we refer to it because some of
our exchanges have wrongly viewed
it) it will be found that the oath sub
scribed by the owner is in regard to
listing the property, and not as to its
valuation the assessor is elected to
assess the property.
The Nebraska Farmer, looking
over Uncle Samuel's large cornfield,
comes to the conclusion that the crop
of 'S3 is by no means a certainty, and
advises those who have a supply suf
ficient to run them over to keep it.
" We do not mean," continues the
Farmer, to say that the 1883 crop is to
be a failure ; on the contrary we think
the prospect fair for an average crop,
yet there are indications for a very
light crop, and it is always best to be
prepared for an emergency."
A. A. Smith and family leave the
city next week, for Atlantic, Iowa,
where Mr. Smith goes into the drug
business with N. G. Bonesteel, also
formerly of this place. Both are ex
cellent business men, and Mr. Smith
has been recognized everywhere he
has been in the business the last
twenty-two years ns a first-class drug
gist, having thorough knowledge of
medicines, and being very conscien
tious and painstakingi The Journal
commends the firm to the good graces
of the people of Atlantic.
At the recent term of the district
court for Butler county John Arnold
was found guilty of setting out prairie
fire, and was fined $10 and costs, and
committed to jail 30 days, the least
punishment allowed by statute. The
Ulysses Dispatch says : "Judge Post
made a very favorable impression
during his first term in this county.
The lawyers all agree that he is a very
able lawyer and an upright man.
Besides this, everybody can see that
he is a courteous and careful gentle
man, and a general hope is expressed
that be will be the judge of this dis
trict for many years."
If reports are true, an Aurora
real estate firm was taken in by Isham
as badly as was the Platte Valley
Bank. It appears the sharper was
after two sections of land laying in
the bluffs just across the Platte from
this city and had signified his inten
tion to buy them. The said firm
wanted to make a stake, so it bought
the 1280 acres at $3.50 per acre In
tending to dispose of it to Isham at
$5.00. The Hon. Mr. Isham waB sud
denly called away and now the Auro
ra firm has $4,480 tied up in bluff
land which it is liable to hold for a
while. Central City Nonpareil.
There is no end to the list of cas
ualties by cyclones this spring. The
recent whirl at Valparaiso is set forth
thus by the Ulysses Dispatch: "Eight
buildings were demolished, including
two school houses. Mrs. Lattan had
an arm and leg broken. Her infant
was seriously hurt on the head by a
flying timber. The damage is esti
mated at $5,000. The tornado was
about 150 feet wide, and extended
about eight miles. Among the pecu
liar freaks played may be mentioned
that of a horse being carried forty
feet into the air, and a mowing ma
chine taken up and mashed into a
As the communication concerning
Creston alliance gives, in substance,
what was published in the Journal
last week iu the shape of news, we do
not insert that part of it. The writer
remarks that "the enthusiasm of the
members of the Creston Alliance is
as great as it was a year ago, the
statements to the contrary notwith
standing. The war is still waged
againBt monopoly and corruption,
overwhelming enemies, to be sure,
but foes to the public welfare which
must yield at length to the power of
right and honesty, if we do net
swerve from the path of duty or give

The monthly review passed off in a
satisfactory manner, in the main.
Teachers and pupils begin to look
hopefully forward to the end of the
term. After a trying year's work,
they have earned and deserve a rest.
Projects for vacation are in order.
We hear rumors of trips to the Rocky
mountains and the coast.
It is in contemplation to change
entirely the method of business In
struction the coming year. The re
sults of teaching mere forms are
meager and unsatisfactory. It is pro
posed to open actual business rela

ings, using "commercial money," and
basing the transactions upon the
market reports of the daily papers.

Col. Chase, mayor of Omaha, is of
a very sanguine temperament, as is
well known. At a reception of a
company of eastern editors recently,
the Mayor dilated at considerable
length upon the interests, past and
prospective, of the great city, to which
address Mr. L. G. Halleck, of Win
sted, Conn., responded. Tbo Repub
lican says: "It was evident that be
thought the mayor's prediction as to
the population of Omaha being 200,
000 in ten years was a little too lofty,
for ho told a rather appropriate story.
He said the mayor's figures bad re
minded him of the story about the
organist at the prayer-meeting who
played the accompaniment to 'My
soul be on your guard, ten thousaud
foes arise.' He broke down at 'arise,'
and the singing stopped almost as
suddeuly. A broker, in the rear part
of the congregation, thinking 'ten
thousand foes' was a little too high,
sang out, 'Start her at five thousand.' "
The train that came down from
Norfolk Wednesday morning last
might have been a wreck on the way
if blind luck had not been in its favor.
After the train had arrived, and some
switching bad been done by it, and
while the boys were doing their work,
a car jumped the rails and ran a few
feet, bumping along on the ties. When
the cause of the accident was looked
for, it was found that the flange of
one of the wheels was lacking abont
one-fourth of its circumference, and
the missing part could not be found
in the yard or anywhere close by.
We are told that a passenger on the
train remarked that there was slight
bumping sensation when the train
was near Platte Center, but there is
no telling, as yet, just where the flange
left the train. It was truly a fortu
Two Alliance communications
reached us too late for publication last

at their next meeting will debate
whether farmers should take the
lead in politics, D. L. Bruen, affirm

ments in the negative. Speeches
were made by Messrs. Goodsom, Red
enbaugb, Hoffman, Freeman, Bruen
aud others on different subjects in
regard to the burdens heaped upon
the people. The next meeting takes
place at the Redenbaugh school house,
June 11th, at 8 p. m. The farmers of
Grand Prairie and of Shell Creek pre

present. The minutes come to us
over the signatures of Peter Streter,
president, and D. L. Bruen, secretary.
Among the late reported cases in

to condemn land to the use of a rail

direction of the lessee of the road,
but in the name of the lessor, held not
a sufficient ground for the enjoining
