Fatal Herae Mick.
John Austin, a boy thirteen years
old and adopted son of John Haney,
living some five miles east of this
city, was kicked by a horse of Mr.
Haney's at the stable on the farm Sat
urday week, from the effects of wbich
he died in 24 hours ; notwithstanding
the best physicians were in attend
ance, they were unable to save his
life, which was a very sad affair to
Mr. Haney; as he highly esteemed
and loved the boy for bis good quali
ties, and spared no service to save
bis life. We learned that the accident
occurred this way. The man who
attends to the horses on the farm
was engaged in giving them feed,
and had fed all except the one that
kicked the boy, and this horse got
restless, turned a little and backed in
the stall. The boy standing near saw
the horse's position, spoke to him to
"stand up," at ihe same time kicked
the horse on the pastern joint, the
horse, at the same moment, with
great force, kicking the bey in the

While the Journal is thoroughly
averse to saying a word that would
injure this community or Platte
county abroad, -we know that law
lessness is best assailed at the begin
ning, before its grip is fixed. The
proceedings of Sunday last at the
new Park southwest of, and outside
the city limits, were exceedingly dis
graceful. Not having been present, we can
not speak from personal observation,
but our information is that the
various assaults made originated
from drunkenness, aud that beer was
dieposed of on the grouud, contrary
to the law. It seems that several of
our citizens,present through curiosity,
andjno way inclined to quarrel, were
assaulted and beaten without cause
by the rowdy, showmen who were
afterwards, by the county authorities,
pot under arrest and fined.
We had hoped that the first ex
perience of the proprietors of the
Park wonld lead them to discon
tinue the Sunday feature of the con
cern, and also modify anything else
that might not be in full accord with
tho spirit and the letter of law.
None are too humble to demand its.
protection, and no man must bo al
lowed io violate it with impunity.
Every good interest of town and
county depends for continuance on
the due observance and enforcement
of the law.

Ed. Journal : Please permit me,
a tax-payer, to utter my protest
against the assumed power of the
Board of Supervisors, assumed by
them as a Board of Equalization of
assessments. I deny them the power
to vote, by motion or any other way,
the reduction of any individual's or
company's assessment. If they havo
that power, what is the use of
Each tax-payer could be notified
to seud in a list of his taxable
property to the county clerk aud the
board of supervisors could vote each
man's amount of valuation and tax,
as their prejudices, likes or dislikes,
or other motives prompted them. I
claim that the late acts of our Board
of Supervisors have made the assess
ment of 1886 illegal, have illegalized
tho whole thing, by reducing in
dividual's and company's assessments,
aud should bo stopped before it
comes to a head. I understand the
definition of equalization to mean,
tho evening up or balancing of a
thing. To illustrate: if my near
horse has more than his share of the
doubletree, and by that means draws
less of the load than the off horse, I
do not saw off the long end and spoil
my doubletree, but find the center or
middle and put the pin there, so that
each draws his share of the load and
no damage done. If I could not find
tho center exactly, I would do the
best I could and let the responsibility
rest where it belongs. In the assess
ment, that responsibility would rest
with the assessor. For tbo board to
assume tho power to say what my
valuation shall be is to say the least,
a dangerous position and does not

To the Editor :
As an old citizen of this city, as
one familliar with her adversities and
her prosperities, I have taken a deep
interest in all that pertains to her
advancement and welfare. Jt is an
undisputed fact that what benefits any
part of Platte county, in a correspond
ing ratio, the city of Columbus is a
During the past week while tbo
county Board was in session, I bad
the pleasure of meeting very near if
not quite all the members of that
Hon. Body, and while each one has
apparently a keen eye to the welfare
or bis own township, I havo found
from general conversation, that they
are equally Interested iu the com
mon weal of the whole county.
The members are a representative
body of men, men of advanced and
progressive ideas, men who are sac
rificing valuable time for the public
good, at a very'small stipend and le ss
thanks in return.
I do not believe their services have
been duly appreciated by tho citizens
of this city, or, for that matter, by the
mass of the people of the county.
Jt is the easiest thing in the world
to find fault, and usually the most
narrow-minded person has a largely
developed bump of that character.
When this Board is iu session,
would it not be an 'encouragement
for them if more of onr tax-paying
citizens would lake an interest in
