That Bridge Propositi.
No right-minded man in the county
will thoughtlessly or maliciously
vote agaiu6t the proposition to be
acted npon next Tuesday. It is very
plain and can be understood by all.
No additional levy is to be made on
Platte county, if the proposition
should carry. It will simply author
ize that $10,000 now unappropriated
in tbe connty treasury, be placed
alongside of $7,000 furnished by the
City of Columbus, to be used in tbe
construction of a bridge across the
Loup. This will give a fund that
will secure a solid, substantial
structure, and it is an improvement
necessary to the welfare of the
county, a considerable portion of
which lies south of the river to be
bridged. Those people are entitled to
a safe highway leading to and from
the county seat, and nothing but a
policy of tho meanest selfishness will
deprive tbem of this convenience.
The section of country more im
mediately interested pays a very con
siderable portion of all the taxes that
are raised in the county and thus are
justly entitled to consideration.
Besides all this, the general interests
are sufficient and full foundation for
an affirmative vote by every man.
What helps one helps all, Every
prosperous market in tbe county
benefits every property holder within
the limits of the county, and increases
the value of his merchandise or busi
ness, his bouseB and his lands. There
is no doubt about this. The better
roads and bridges, the better market
towns; the better markets, the
greater the price of farm lauds tribu
tary thereto, and the greater induce
ments for settlement and improve
ment ; the denser the popul&tiou, the
greater facilities lor improvement
again, and so it goes on. One man
in a business might just as well con
clude that he has a pre-emption on
the same and endeavor to bar out all
comers, as lor any section of a
county to act on a like principle with
another section where its welfare, nay
its very existence as a prosperous
element of the county depeuds upon,
not generosity, but simply fair deal
ing. The public improvement pro
posed will be well worth the money ;
the amount proposed now lays idlo in
the tieasury. This section of the
count' asks special consideration of
her needs and the proportion of
taxes she pays into the county
treasury. Do your own best in
terests justice by saying "yes" to the
proposition next Tuesday.

We don't know who the man is
that now writes the "Topics" de
partment of tbe Lincoln Journal,
but whoever he may be it Is well
enough to say to him that in his war
fare against Senator Van Wyck he
has o'ei stepped the bounds ot de
cency and outraged tnat sense of
fair-play which all men entertain. It
is proper enough to combat a man's
opinions, to oppose him in bis
ambitions, to compasB his defeat for
office by just means, but to speak of a
manias a physical monstrosity is
going a little too far. That method
of warfare will, however, not injure
Van Wyck any. It only shows tbe
weakness of the man who indulges in
such remarks. It reminds of the
fashion of children who make faces
when they wish to vent their spleen
and dare not strike a fair blow.
A railroad horror occurred the

living that went into the service
either for a short or long term, who
was wounded in service or contract

I believe in pensioning every soldier
that has arrived at tbe age of sixty

From all sources, we wish togivfe,
under this head, what we can gather
that may be of interest to represen
tatives and senators elect, and of pos
sible benefit to the people of Ne
braska. We ask private citizens who
have suggestions of amendment to
our laws, attorneys who see where
justice might be better secured,
county officials who realize wherein
statutes can be bettered, to send us
what they have to say. Ed. Jour
nal. One thing that the coming legis
lature should do is to cause tbe pub
lication of the new laws in at least
one paper in each county. Passing
laws to which all tbe citizens of tbe
state are amenable and then hiding
them in high-priced calf-bound vol
umes to be retailed out by lawyers at
a high rate is not just the proper
thintr. It is also absura to assert ma:
a man is "supposed" to be acquainted
with the Uwe when in factt has J
had no possible chance to form their
acquaintance. Enlightmrnt in one ot
the prerequisites of good citiz9nhip
and a little annual expense to the
state for the purpose of making her
citizens better acquainted with her
laws would be the best possible
economy. Publish the uew laws.
Ed. Journal: As the time is
nigh at band when our members
elect will get to the business of legis
lation, and as you.some time ago in
yied tax-payers who felt so iuclined
to submit any questions that might
have a bearing upon their labors,
something that would act as a spur to
such as will be honestly inclined to
do the square thing by their con
stituents, I, as one of the tax-payers
of Platte county, will 6ay as a starter,
that in my humble opinion there is a
great portion of the statutes that
need a careful revision, particularly
in the township law, for we all know
that under the present form it Is little
better than a nuisance.
The several counties in tbe state
would reap a richer harvest if the
law was so amended as to allow
assessors to get possession of their
books on the first of February, and
not have them wait a month until a
great portion of the county's wealth
has departed to parts unknown. The
Board of Supervisors would then in
all probability escapo the pain 11
duty of eummoning stockmen to
appear before them to show cause
why they refuse to list their fat cattle
I remember last summer of reading
a letter in iho Journal written by
Tax-payer, showing where a great
deal of wealth was shipped out of the
county without being taxed. I ulso
read Supervisor's" reply, Mating
that those stockmen had afterwards
come before the boaid aud made
ample reparation, aud now I find that
it was only a few weeks ago that I
saw in the proceedings ot the board
that those same parties referred to bj
Tax-payer were called to appear
before the board and show cause why
tbey did not list their stock to the
assessors last March. I rauBt believe
that in this case "Tax-payer" was
right and "Supervisor" wrong, and I
don't believe that "Supervisor" acted
with a degree of honesty and good
faith in office when be eent out his
reply to tbe readers of the Journal,
which be must have known was
erroneous. Mr. Editor, I only Ven
ture those remarks so that all who
may read the Journal will see tht
it the assessment could be made
earlier in tbe year the great nibj uty
of the people would be benefitted
thereby. Does the law not say iu
plain words that all taxable properly
shall be assessed, and as Platte county
is sending down as good a team ot
their age and size as there is in the
state I verily hope they will do their
utmost in bringing about a state ot
affairs that will make tbe rich mau
pay a just proportion of taxeB.
Besides, there are many other points
our members will be expected to
keep in sight viz: tho millers
throughout the state are deserving of
having some attention paid to them.
I don't liko to see them left out in
the cold.tbeiefore 1 ex cit to hear tl at
the Legislature will act generously
with them and see that there is a
good sound and wholesome law
passed that will entitle the miller to
toll the tenth bushel and take sixty
pounds at that, when they grind
wheat, other grains in proportion.
And, Mr. Editor, as I am trespas
passing more than I at first intended,
1 will say in conclusion, and I think
that you will bear me out iu this my
last appeal, and that is that I in com
mon with all tbe other down-trodden
tax-payers of the county I do
sincerely beg that our two members
will prove themselves equal to the
emergency, and labor night aud day
if necessary to see that such streams
as the Loop and Platte will be bridged
by a 6tate apportionment; it strikes
me forcibly that if the question of
bridging streams of such magnitude
was properly brought before the
House aud urged iu the proper
spirit, something could be accom
plished in this direction. In the
meantime wo will live in hopes and
watch our two worthies, how they
will handle themselves in the fight;
they have a grand opportunity now
afforded them to come out with
marks of distinction, for. without
flattery or extolling them in the least,
tbe people in my neighborhood, when
speaking of them will exclaim,
"Didn't we elect two daisies, just the
fellows we need when it comes to

In this department the people talk, and

Ed. Journal : Let Van Wyck be
the password given to every true
man who will mount guard in the
halls of legislation, because no man
who serves as member, either in the
house or senate, who believes in the
maxim, Honor to whom nonor is due,
but wi-1 vote first, last and all the
time for the old hero who spent bis
time, strength, money and means to
save tbe Union, and then, like a true
Spartan stood up almost alone iu the
senate and battled for the rights of
the people, and with such success
that he amazed the whole nation, so
that his name has become a household
word in every homo throughout tbe
laud. Tbe man who can 6laod up
and say that Van Wyck did not do
bis doty in tbe United States Senate
and ought not to be returned is not
worthy of comment, and is possessed
of a gizzard hard enough to grind
gravel for cementing an egg shell.
Mr. Editor, the whole country is
watching the present legislature and
the member, bp he demncriU fit1 re
publican, who tor paltry gain will
help to slay Van Wyck in this contest
will be wcii remembered, and,
should he aspire again tor iffic?, "bis
name will be pants," as the country
will take care of those men ti ho make
it a rule to pack conventions with
men carrying spurious credentials.
Such men are being shadowed aud
will in due time be dismissed from
the pay-roil as too burdeusome to the
people. No doubt money will be
spent freely at the capitol to compass
Van Wyck's defeat. Where mouey
is used to put a man out of office
there is a "nigger iu the wood pile,"
for had Van Wyck bean a bad servant
the tax-payers throughout the state
would soon tell him so, but that isn't
tbe wrinkle. Van Wyck wants to
help better the condition of all men
who honestly toil for a living for
themselves and Jamilies, and that
don't go down well on the bloated
stomachs of money kiugs.

"Four years ago last spring little

LITTLE FELLOW WAS LEFT BLIND.
Distinguished physicians in Mil

and said that nothing could be done
for him, and that, blinded thus early,
be would continue sightless during
bis entire life. While at Hot Springs
Mr. De Witt bad heard the S. S". S.
remedy, manufactured at Atlanta,
spoken of very highly. How it hap
pened I don't know, for S. S. S. is
not guaranteed to cure blindness;
but by some happy chance it was
decided to test its efficacy in Willie's
case. By the time he had taken a
bottle and a half his eyes had so far ,
recovered that b6 cculd play out of
doors. Alter taking four bottles bo
vi as completely cured. His eyes
seemed penectiy sound, and have
coutiuued so ever since."
"Here, WiUie, Willie, come here!"
shouted the doctor suddeuly, to an
'active little boy dressed in knicker
bockers, who was playiug in the
street. "This is Willie De Witt.
His father used to be a railroad con
ductor, but he is out West now on
business, and Willie is staying with

never has the least trouble with his
eyesight. See, his eyes look as well
