We give in this week's Journal a
considerable portion of the official pro
ceedings of the county board of super
visors; the remainder will follow next
week. We notice that the board are
looking sharply after claims against the
county, rejecting some, reducing others,
etc. As to the matter of drawing a
warrant on the general fund, in favor of
John Stauffer, ex-county clerk, for S2,
108.22, claimed as illegally paid by him,
after considerable discussion was finally
referred to the county attorney for his
written opinion.
It was a gratification to everybody
but not a surprise to those who were in
formed, when artesian water was struck
on the Hen rich farm; the same was
when a second well was bored on the
Fred. Wolf farm eight miles north of
Monroe, from which the water gushed
with still greater force than it did from
the first well. We say that this is no
surprise to many because for years, in
wells 30 to 185 feet deep, water has risen
nearly to the surface, lacking G to 20
feet. In boring deep wells we are apt
to find valuable deposits.
We are pleased to be able to an
nounce that the publisher of the Inter
Ocean has made a special offer on the
weekly edition of that paper during the
present political campaign. He will
send the weekly Inter Ocean for six
months to any subscriber on receipt of
thirty cents. This is a very low price
for one of the best and ablest republi
can newspapers in the country. Good
republicans should try to increase its
circulation. Subscriptions will be re
ceived at this price from June 1st to
August 1st. After that the regular
prices will be restored, tf
The popular resort, Burlington
Beach, has been greatly enlarged and
beautified, and is today without an equal
in the state of Nebraska. Every facility
for boating, bathing and sailing is pro
vided. The steamer ''City of Lincoln"
is once more in commission and is pat
ronized daily by delighted hundreds.
The outlook from the cool, shady,
breeze-swept rloor of the big dancing
pavilion is as pleasant as can be found
anywhere. A hrst-class brass band is in
constant attendance. There are half a
dozen refreshment booths. In fact, ev
erything that contributes to the enter
tainment and amusement of visitors is'
at hand.
Monday morning about six o'clock
lightning struck the house of Clark
Cooncy in Council Creek township and
literally riddled the east side of his
house. It struck the chimney and came
on down passing through the bedroom
occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Cooncy and
their two youngest children. The side
of Mrs. Cooncy's face was burned some
what and all more or less felt tho effects
of the shock. The carpet was set on fire
but this was immediately put out. The
house was damaged to the extent of
about $300, bjit as no one was seriously
injured, Clark feels as though the
damage was light under the circum
stances. Fullerton Post.
The Dussel horse took a notion
Monday morning to break away from
the hitching post on Eleventh street.
He was caught in three minutes on
Twelfth no particular damage. Just a
few minutes afterwards the Segelke team
started up from a freight train near the
U. P. depot, landing Charlie Segelke and
Frank Lucas under the wagon, spilling
out several cases of pop, the end of the
tongue plowing the ground for a few
feet and then the wagon-bed rising and
falling with a crash which freed the
team. They started for a free-for-all
raco through the town, but were stop
ped by a switch east of the U. P. pas
senger depot. The young boys in sight
wero of course attracted to the spot and
had plenty of free pop to drink. No
body hurt.
Niels Olson drove down Saturday
from Creston for the purpose of attach
ing his signature as chairman of the
county board of supervisors to the war
rants ordered drawn at the last meeting
of the board. Clerk Phillips, however,
has been sick, also Mr. Dale, and as the
warrants were not ready for Mr. Olson's
signature, he went home to await the
call of the clerk. He tells us that with
the rain of Wednesday last there came
quite a bit of hail, some stones as large
as walnuts, and that small grain looked
considerably worsted after the storm.
Thursday forenoon they had an old
fashioned, soaking rain. Coming from
Creston in, the appearance of tho grow
ing crops was so changed for the better
that, after a week's absence, the country
was scarcely recognizable.
We would like to devote a column
to institute notes and work, but must
content ourselves with deferring it till
next week, suffice to say that tho in
structors, Leavy, O'Connor and Parsons,
with Sup't Bothleitner, have been in
dustriously at work all week, and Prof.
Clcmmons of Fremont on Friday, pres
ent for a few minutes, gave an interest
ing talk; Mrs. Williams of Lincoln visit
ed the institute Friday in the interest
of the reading circle; Prof. Miller of
Lincoln also called on Friday, and State
Sup't Goudy delivered an interesting
lecture to the teaohers at the Congrega
tional church Monday evening. The
institnte closes this week. Instructors
O'Connor and Parsons, unknown before
to our teachers, have made many warm
friends by their evident zeal and effi
ciency in their work.
Last Wednesday forenoon there was
quite a flurry on Olive street. Police
man Brandt was after a man (one of
five suspects who scattered when the
officer put in an appearance), he follow
ing the supposed leader, and making a
6hot that took a nip off the Telegram
office. The fellow ran up against W. R.
Brock and was squaring off for fight,
but thought better of it and gave up.
When Brandt came up he was consider
ably excited and struck the man over
the head with his billy, when he was
offering no resistance whatever, and
while he was being held by Mr. Brock.
Evidently Policeman Brandt was too
much excited to act coolly, or else by
the blow he wished to punish the man
for running away, so that, so far as the
arrested man was concerned he might be
thankful of escape with his life. Mr.
Brandt has probably tired of "mon
keying" with so many tramps every
month, and if the word goes out that
the policemen of Columbus are in the
habit of making a target of tramps,
there will be a host of them go around
this city. Another version of the affair
is that the tramps concerned had jewelry
on their persons (presumably stolen),
and were being taken to the lock up,
when they burst away from the police
man. An on-looker says that the tramp
made a lunge as though he would get
away, and that Brandt tapped him so
lightly with his club that he laughed at
the blow "it wouldn't have killed a

Editor Journal: At Capernaum
Jesus paid tribute without grumbling,
although not a stranger, and according
to Matthew, 22, 21, "Render therefore
unto Caesar, the things which are
Caesar's; and unto God tho things that
are God's." duty to the state comes first;
duty to God afterwards. If a man will
not pay the first, he will have no respect
to the last. Therefore no true follower
of Jesus will refuse to pay his just ap
portionment of taxes. "Equality before
the law" is the motto of Nebraska, and
the working principlo cf our free gov
ernment. How does it come, then, that
the property of our protestant ministers
is assessed and that of the priests of the
Roman hierarchy is not assessed?
How does our county board make out
that kitchens, dining-rooms, dormitories,
with all the utensils and appurtenances
thereto, are used "exclusively for re
ligious purposes," and therefore, under
the law, exempt from taxation?
