There is an effort being made to
have President Arthur open the great
exposition from Washington City by
electricity, setting the whole ma

perform that pleasant duty.
Late the other night the creamery
owned by a company and located
about a half milo south of Kearney,
Neb., was burned to the ground. It

The cost of the building was $7,000

For years the people of Nebraska
have been demanding restrictive rail
road laws at the hands of tho legisla
ture. The demand has been parried,
pushed aside, thwarted, until the sen
timent haB grown to such proportions
that there is no longer anything like
even a show of opposition against it.
The railroad organs that two years
ago declared there was no railroad
monopoly in this state and could be
none, that there was no ground for
opposition to railroad dictation (be
cause there was no dictation), that
freights and fares were low enough,
&c, are now, by the force of public
opinion and nothing else, compelled
to assume a different attitude, viz:
that there are wrongs committed by
the railroad companies that ought to
be righted ; that thero arc just rights
invaded, for which remedies must be
found. The people will find, how
ever, that this is merely tin assumed
attitude on the part of the organs re
ferred to, and that they will really be
found in opposition to ovcry just
measure looking towards the libera
tion of the business public from the
yoke of railroad dictation.
The Saxon race havo almost unlim
ited faith in the efficacy of a statute,
and are not well content so long as
what ought to be declared law, is not
so declared.
What is left uudono by the next
legislature will so remain for two
years yet to come, and it behooves
members to settle upon a lino of
action, and promptly carry it out.
It seems to us that the people will
bo satisfied with a law limiting pas
senger faro to three cents a mile, mak
ing its provisions so binding that the
railroads cannot run through it. As
to freight tariffs, it is not so easy to
fix the basis, but Homcthing can be
done so that the producer may have
some profit of his labor, and not leave
him at the mercy of the companies
who fix the rates at the highest notch
that will bear shipment at all.
The conscientious representative of
the people who shows himself able to
cope with the railroad attorneys, and
to organize the people's representa
tives to express in 6olid law the peo
ple's will on this question will make
himeelf an abiding name in the annals
of the state.

The striking miners at tho village
of Angus, Iowa, have created great

themselves with shot-guns and small
arms with the determination of forc

Gov. Shormnn 1ms been applied to
and has ordered out troops, to pre
vent any outbreak rather than to
quell actual riot.
A good thing for our legislators to
do would be to secure the passage of
a bill that will place delinquent taxes
within the same restrictions as any
other debt which outlaws after a cer
tain period. Why should the state
havo more rights than the individual?
By the same token why should
there he a five per ceut. penalty un
less it goes to the school fund, or
twenty per cent, interest, instead of
eight or ten ? People thought it was
a big jump down from forty to
twenty, hut just why tho state should
be allowed so much more than the in
dividual, is not clear.

The members of the Bar of North
Nebraska are hereby requested to
meet at Norfolk, Nebraska, Tuesday,
the 23d day of December, 1884, at 10
o'clock a. m., to consider the matter
of formulating such amendments or
changes to the Code and Statutes of
our State as may be agreed upon at
such meeting, and to make proper
provisions to have such suggestions
presented to the next Legislature,
through our North-Nebraska repre
sentatives in that body; and for the
further purpose of having a fraternal,
social time, and something to eat.

Tho above call for a meeting of the
bar of North-Nebraska, we clip from
the Elkhorn Valley News of Norfolk,
and cheerfully give it space in the
Journal. There is undoubtedly
room for much improvement to the
code and statutes of our state in the
interests of all, and if, as has been
suggested, the members of the coming
legislature be invited, and should par
ticipate in the deliberations of the
body, there is no reason why much
good in tbe general interest may not
be accomplished in the way of ueces
Bary amendments.

In the centennial M. E. conference
sitting at Baltimore the other morning
several resolutions were referred to
appropriate committees, one of which
proposed a uniform hymn hook. A
friend suggests that the present col
lection of hymns used in the church
service may he good enough, but the
music is certainly a great failure. If
the conference will adopt and use
Bradbury's music, it will gain a great
point in the church service. This
friend has no other interest in the
matter than the fact of securing first
class music for the M. E. church.

Recent news from St. Paul states
that a special from Golden City, B. C,
says that a commercial traveler named

near that place. A large number iu give abundauce of water "on tan "

the caro of stock will be a pleasure
for the products of the laud.
We had heard from a dUtanre aud
seen, something of Mr. Heed's now
barn ou tho bluffs north of town, but
only the other day did wo look at it
at short range, and surely it is worth
seeing by every man who has a farm
in Nebraska, and expects to keep in
the business of raising grain and
stock. No description, however ac
curate, will do justice to the struct
ure, and nothing but an actual view
of tho premise will give one au ade
quate idea of its meat usefulness.
Built on a side hill, entrance is
made at either eud on a graded road,
euding in a bridge next to the barn,
so that a wagon, heavily loudened
with graiu or hay, can enter at one
door, be unloaded, and pass out at
the othor.
Tho barn is 7Cx9G feet, 12 feet high
at the eaves, and 42 feet high at the
comb. Tho north wall, into the hill,
is G feet high, solid stone. Tho base
ment story is 9 feet high, very solidly
built, and neatly partitioned. The
young stock, oue hundred head, are
in a place by themselves; the older
stock, two huudred head, will be tied,
two aud two, in stalls, while tho
horses will have a place provided for
them. Wo think Mr. Reed's plaun
for ventilating the basement are com
mendable. The usual ventilator will
be placed at the comb iu tho center of
the building, while large, square
chutes will reach from the lower ceil
ing to near the roof, answering the
double purpose of a hay aud feed
chute from tho upper story, (by opeu
ing a side-door) aud as au oscapo of
impure air from below.
The upper room, any lively farmer
would call a "daisy." One side, to be
filled with wheat, oats, corn, barley,
e.c., the other with hay, with a feed-
room for placing a stalk and coru
cutter, a grinder, a big churn, etc.,
the man who sees every hoof under
him in warm, comfortable quarters,
with plenty of good rich provender to
eat, will feel that ho is doing his work
as he ought, and we aro very sure that
this will be one of the sources of
greatest comfort to Mr. Reed, that, in
the hardest storm that blows, he may
sleep sound, knowing that tho crea
tures under his care are comfortable
and thriving.
With a barn like this, one man
could better tend this stock than four
men could the ordinary way, and
with less feed. An elevated tank
near the wind-mill is capable of hold
ing 175 bbls. and a cistern of 400 bble.
