John Staabof Leigh, was in town
yesterday on his returu home from a
business trip to Omaha. John looks
in good health, and reports matters
in his neighborhood as flourishing.
S. C. Ardley has purchased Enoch
Mayer's farm, and Borland & Co.,who
own a large ranche six miles north of
Leigh, have distributed considerable
money during the winter, in exchange
for corn and ponies. They are useful
men in the community.
This item will be interesting to
hunters, who go upon the waters for
their game. The Schuyler Herald
says: "Will McPherson has built a
boat of galvanized iron sides, and a
wooden bottom, covered with tin.
The boat is built in two sections,
which can be taken apart in a minute's
lime. Each part weighs about 40
pounds, and Will thinks he can get
around on the river now to any place
the geese dare lead him."
A young woman who came here
from Madison about six weeks ago,
and has been doing house work in
several places in the city, was deliv
ered of a child at the Sisters' Hospital
last Friday evening. She attributes
the paternity of the boy to a young
man near Madison. An action for
bastardy has been begun before Jus
tice Rickly, and on the affidavit of the
young woman, Lena Algaza, a war

Other Nebraska towns likewise
have their troubles, and the press are
speaking out about them. The Fre
mont Herald calls upon the authori
ties to shut up the gambling dens and
low groggcries and the West Point
Hepublican discourses against the
open and shameless manner in which
business is carried on in that town on
Sunday, and the way places of
amusement are kept open. The Re
publican don't believe there is anoth
er town in Nebraska where there is
such a total disregard of Sunday.
The latest violation is the opening of
a roller skating rink on that day. It
is getting to that pass, says the He
publican, that we are kaown all over
the state as a community of Sabbath
Somewhat encouraging. A stock
company has been formed at Norfolk
to endeavor to secure the location
there of the next Grand Army re
union. When they approached the
officers of the railroad companies,
pays the Iieics, they didu't receive
much encouragement from that
source. "There seems to have been,"
saya the Ifews, "an implied promise
on their part to favor Fremont or
Columbus, according to which got
the most votes."
The Independent of Grand Island,
praying for more light on the streets,
says: "In our opinion, the absence
of light at the crossing had as much
to do with the death of John Zum
brum as anything else and the res
ponsibility for the accident rests just
as heavily on our city for the neglect
of providing the same as it does upon
the railroad company for not having
a flagman." The wonder grows after
every dark night here, that some
fatality has not occurred at the cross
ing on Olive street.
A Fremont man has received and
accepted a leap-year proposal from a
young lady in Columbus, O, he re

nicely written epistle, setting forth
that they would have to live in a dug
out on a three-acre patch of Nebraska
soil and subsist on kisses, pork,
beans and kisses, and wound up with
a request for $100 which he sadly
needed to pay a "delinquent" board
bill. The young man is represented
as jubilant and anxious, the anxiety
probably arising from doubts con
cerning the remitance of the $100
Omaha, Lincoln, Nebraska City,
Fremont, Kearney, Grand Island,
Schuyler and Plattsmouth were rep
resented at the annual meeting ot the
Nebraska state firemen's association
and banquet Tuesday evening of last
week at Fremont. There were sev
eral interesting discussions of topics;
a vote of 29 to 16 was given in favor
of the hand engine as the best fire
apparatus for cities of the third class ;
unanimously decided that the chem
ical engine is a valuable auxiliary to
the fire department; the White An
chor hoe was the favorite and the
rack system of drying approved.
The commissioners of Saunders
county do a good thing in publishing
estimates for expenses of the ensuing
year, by giving fuller particulars than
usual, which is the kind of informa
tion tax-payers want. Each depart
ment is supposed to know about what
money will be required, and the com
missioners set it forth, as for instance
agricultural society $500, county phy
sician $300, district and justices courts
$5,000, jail expenses $1,500, county
commissioners $1,500, support of poor,
etc., etc. "Incidentals"' comes in for
a round sum, to be sure, but we think
that the people would prefer to know
a little more definitely than has gen
erallv been the custom.
Anton Bosch of Colfax county,
came to Schuyler, drank freely of
beer and whisky. He started home
with another young man. On the
road they drank more whisky and
diluted alcohol. Anton complained
of being sick, laid down in the
wagon, and his companion covered
him with bcdquilts, thinking there
was nothing the matter except (?)
that he wa3 a little "full." The Her
ald adds: "When they arrived at
Bosch's, about 10 o'clock, they put
him to bed, and before 3 o'clock in
the morning he was dead. Antou
was abont IS years old, and was
looked to as the support of the family,

Several of our exchanges (outside
of the counties where township or
ganization was adopted, however) are
making a little warfare on the system.
Better not do so, gentlemen. The
system is based upon the principle
that the people shonld take care ot
their own affairs, and while the first
attempt may not be entirely satisfac
tory, while some of the supervisors
may not be men noted, even in their
own townships, for good common
sense and disinterested public spirit,
or may vote for measures not condu
cive to the public welfare, and hide
their individual responsibility to their
constituents outside of an aye and
nay list, but these little tricks are in
cident to human nature, and cannot
be so readily played under the new
system as under the old. The people
will demand the record of ayes and
nays on all important bills and meas
ures, because they will want to know
each man's line of thought. This is
already true of the recent supervisors'
meeting here, and, although the ayes
and nays were taken on some of the
more important measures, they do
not appear upon the official record.
Of course, these little gaps can be
readily filled up, as attention is called

As we have before said, houses of
ill-lame have no legal existence in the
state of Nebraska. In and of them
selves they are a nuisance and oucht
to be abated everywhere. Of course
the law and the officers sworn to ad
minister the laws must be looked to,
and these cannet hide their responsi
bility in a plea of laxity of public
opinion, of which there is not the
least shadow of a sign in the laws
themselves. Some of the friends of
this social corruption have claimed
that particular acts mast be proven in
order to secure conviction. We again
refer to a decision of our supreme
court, filed Oct. 12, 83, and reported
in the Northwestern Reporter of Nor.
10, '83, in which this phase of the sub
ject is fully discussed by Judge Lake,
to which those particularly interested
can refer. The points decided were :
"1. To authorize a conviction, under
sec. 210 of the criminal code, for per
mitting a house to be used as one of
ill-fame, or for purposes of prostitu
tion, it must be shown that the house
was of ill-fame in fact, or, in other
words, a house resorted to for pur
poses of prostitution; that the pris
oner was the owner or had control of
the house; and that he knowingly
permitted it to be occupied as a house

reputation and that of the persons
frequenting it, together with other
facts and circumstances which lead
satisfactorily to that conclusion. It is
