A century ago there was not a mile
of telegraph or telephone wire in exist
ence, not a foot of railroad nor a steam
loat, und the great argument of our fore
fathers against the extension of territory
included under one government rested
upon the fact that means of communica

would fall to pieces.

Randolph fell and the professor walked
to the nearest residence, bleeding as he
went. It is thought both will die.

It seems that Daniel F. Beatty, the
organ manufacturer of Washington, N.
J., has come to something of his just
deserts at last, having been convicted
by government prosecution for the
fraudulent use of the mail. E. D. Saw
yer of Reading, Pa., proved to the satis
faction of a jury that ho did not receive
from Beatty the kind of an organ he had
ordered, by catalogue, and in aiumi an
hour after the- case went to the jury a

The Joubxaii is one of the four news
papers of the county selected by the
present county board of supervisors to
publish for them.
One county board is not constituted
like another, always, party considera
tions vary, chairmen vary, members of
committees are not uniform in their
knowledge of affairs, and thus it hap
pens that what constitutes publishing
for the county varies along with the rest
of the variations.
Sometimes, at the first annual meeting
of the board in January, publishers are
requested to present bids for "such legal
notices as are required by law to be pub
lished in a newspaper of general circula
tion in the county," and this would in
clude supervisors' proceedings, road
notices, tax-list, the county treasurer's
semi-annual statements, the estimate of
expenses, the notice for supplies to be
f nrnished the county.
Sometimes publishers are requested to
place bids for publishing such legal
notices required to be published in a
newspaper, and which are "at the dis
posal of the board." And it has several
times been contended that the road
notices, the county treasurer's semi-annual
statements (and perhaps 6ome oth
ers that we do not just recall), are not
"at the disposal of the supervisors," but
are "at the disposal" of the officer in
charge, whoever he may le.
The past year four newspapers have
been publishing the supervisors' pro
ceedings, and the tax-list, The Columrcs
JouRNAii, the Columbus Telegram, the
Columbus Wochenblatt and the Humph
rey Democrat, each being allowed one
third legal rate, maKing a cost to the
county of four-thirds of one full legal
The legal (or statute) rate for the pro
ceedings is three and one-third cents a
line, which gives one and one-ninth cents
a line to each of the papers mentioned.
The statute rate for the delinquent tax
list is 20 cents for each description of
land and 10 for each town lot, and the
rate to each paper is six and two-third
cents for land, three and one-third for
Outside of one item, wo beliove, The
Journal (though one of the contract
naners). has been given none of the
printing at the one-third rate except
supervisors' proceedings and tax-list.
The road notices, etc., have been placed
elsewhere, as not at the disposal of tho
board, whether nt the one-third rate or
not we have not ascertained, but we
most respectfully insist, not only aa a
tax-payer but as a contract-publisher for
tho county, and a business manager of a
business institution, that the county,
which pays the bills, ought to have any
benefits there are in competition, and
that public work is not a private clutch.
People who observe business matters
in a business way and give any further,
penetrating thought to it will have
noticed that almost all the legal notices
emanating from the county jndgo'sotlice
are placed with the papers of the county
judge's particular brand of political
faith. We would infer from appearances
that Judge lleusley is a democrat, which
of course he has a right to be, but, not
withstanding, never the less, parties in
interest, widows, orphans, debtors, who
have hard work to meet their obligations
and can't meet them, and must submit
to be sued, sometimes having little or
nothing left, and they, above all others,
should have the right graciously accord
ed to them of making the best terms
they can, at the lowest rates they can.
We presume that Judge Hensley would
say he didn't care a continental where
notices are printed, just 6o the work is
done right, and we propose to see to it,
so far as lies in our power, that at least
widows and orphans, especially of the
poor, shall have a cut rate, just as well
as the county or the city, and then let it
lie understood that the party in interest,
those who pay the bills, themselves direct
where the publishing shall be done.
Certainly, an official (and these remarks
apply to the county sheriff as well as tho
county judge and all the rest of them)
has no right to compel the tax-paying
public, or expense-paying heirs or
orphans to pay the highest rato that can
be by law exacted, when a low rate can
be secured that will be just as effectual.
Now we do not understand and do not
say that these officials fix the fees, but,
let them alone, and let the matter go
through the channels fixed by them,
and the bills will come in at the full
legal rate, 10c a line for the first time
and 5c a line for each subsequent time,
with 25c for each affidavit attached.
Here is a sample of what a little com
petition does for the city, and if it is
good for a wealthy city like Columbus
(which makes no deduction for a pub
lisher's occupation tax or his other
taxes and makes him pay as much for
water as do other people which is all
right), why competition ought to be
good for the lowering of expenses to the
widows and orphans of the poor. Last
year The Journal printed the ordi
nances and notices of the city for 3c a
line, and one of our force attended very
nearly every meeting of the council,
almost as certainly as did any member
of the council, took notes of the pro
ceedings, wrote them up, after which the
men of the office set them up in type and
they were published, all of which was
done without a cent of expense to the
city. This year, the Telegram, on a
competitive bid with The Journal cut
away down to (if we remember rightly)
ll cents a line. They do not, however,
make a rule of attending the council
meetings, and our (at present occasional)
reports of the proceedings are so satis
factory that they reproduce them with
out having the labor of attending the
meetings, and for the publishing of
which they, of course, like us last year,
get no pay except the satisfaction of
good done "virtue is it3 own reward"
surely, in this case.
The point we wish to emphasize is
that the public should not be allowed
to discriminate against any newspaper
or newspapers on a merely business
proposition; newspapers should not be
compelled by the pressure of unjust
conditions to discriminate in favor of
rich city or wealthy county, and against
poor widows and needy orphans the
Telegram or The Journal (or any other
paper in the county) can well afford to
clip some from the' regular, legal, max
imum rate, if some method can be de
vised whereby the printing for county
and city, through judge and sheriff and
J treasurer, anu county cierK anu uisinct
court clerk and superintendent of schools i
can be fixed at living, reasonable rates.
IJet the county supervisors (whose
office is ono of honor-rather than emolu
ment, whose bonds are large and wages
comparatively small), start in with their
work the coming year on the principle
that they are tho first conservators of the
county's welfare; that, as it is they who
must approve bills, and they who must
order warrants drawn for their pay, they
have the right of direction and contract.
Let other bill-payers work on the same
principle with all the county offices.
Let us make Nebraska's motto, "Equal
ity before the law," an honest maxim of
conduct not only for newspapers and
toward newspapers, but for everybody.
The Public Funds.
Everything in relation to the financial
affairs of state, county and municipality
must necessarily receive greater atten
tion from now on than ever before in
Nebraska. The last few years has de
veloped a spirit of investigation, critical
inspection and searching inquiry into
details, which is made all the more nec
essary to the men who have the bills to
On one phase of our financial prob
lems the Kearney Hub seems to have a
little information. At least it assures
us that a prominent populist is au
thority for saying "that Governor Hol
comb will recommend in his inaugural
address the repeal of the present de
pository law for placing public funds
and the enactment of a law requiring
public treasuries to keep their moneys
in their own vaults at their own risk and
behind time locks the same as banks.
No matter how this may be, it is certain
that the present system of farming out
public money has been a detriment to
the banks, and it cannot bo gainsaid that
it has hoodooed two or three Kearney
banks within the last three years. It
would be to the interest of tho banks to
refuse to touch a dollar of county money
under the present law and to the interest
of the depositing portion of the public
as well. The county treasury would
lose something in interest charges, but
there is no good reason why the county
should speculate in the county's funds,
and it should also be made impossible
for any county treasurer to do it either."
Would the Hub be in favor of making
it obligatory upon county supervisors to
invest surplus funds in county warrants,
school warrants, state warrants, and
also the accumulating amounts of sink
ing funds in U. S. government bondu, so
that the county would be getting some
interest in return to offset what it pays
itoniW anil tiolil.

democracy's only great newspaper organ,
tho World-Herald, occasionally has some
very pointed criticisms to make against
the state of affairs existing at the White
House and among them the following:
"When tho syndicate of New York
bankers pledged themselves not to with
draw any gold from tho United States
treasury to buy bonds with if their bids
were accepted, there were many wise
people who thought they saw a chance
for a joke at the expense of the World
Ilorald because this paper had predicted
heavy gold withdrawals.
But the figures now show that since
December 1 the gold has been leaving
the treasury almost as rapidly as it
poured in when the syndicate began pay
ing for its bonds. In other words the
syndicate furnished the gold one week
and on the following week began indi
rectly to draw it out again by presenting
treasury notes for redemption. Since
December 1 the treasury reserve of gold
has decreased almost SR.000,000, and tin's
has taken place in spite of the fact that
the general conndition of treasury finan
ces has improved on account of increas
When the bonds were offered for 6alo

August Trimrorn, a banker of Oak
land, Nebraska, last Thursday night was
aroused by a fusilade or shots and on
getting up and investigating found him
self and family all present and nearly as
sound as usual, but on entering the room
where the shooting had occurred, he was
surprised. He had, before entering,
endeavored to find his revolver to defend
himself against the midnight burglars,
but could not, and, despite the danger,
he determined to investigate alone. Tho
dispatch to the World-Herald tells tho
remainder: "He cautiously entered the
room and found it to be filled with smoke
and coal gas. The base burner which he
had carefully filled on retiring was
almost wrecked and pieces of coal strew
ed the floor. In three or four places the
walls were plowed and broken, and in
general the room had rather a disorderly
look. Further investigation of the 6tove
showed the cause of the midnight fusil
ade. On filling the stove at night Mr.
Trimborn had in some way dropped his
loaded revolver in with the coal and it
was the discharge of the cartridges that
caused the shooting. Mr. Trimborn told
the excited ueighbors who had gathered
by this time the cause of their awakeuiug,
and ull hands went back to lied. One of
the bullets was later found in the bed
occupied by Mr. Trimborn's two little
children, but fortunately nobody was
Judge Doane has collected the last
$500 of the fee agreed upon between him
and the committee of the legislature
which managed the impeachment trial
of state officers of 1893. When the trial
commenced Doane, Lanibertson, Pound
and Greene were employed and the fee
of $2,500 to" each agreed upon. After
ward the committee scaled these fees
and paid only $2,000 to each, except
Greene, who only received $500. Lam
bertson got $500 for preparing a brief,
and Judge Doane went into the courts
and got an order to the auditor to issue
a warrant for his remainiug money.
This is the money which he now col
lects and Judge Pound is considering
the advisability of going after the S500
which the committee cut off from his
share. He will decide in a day or two
what be will do about it.

When you come to think of it and
draw the reasonable picture of what the
combination means, it is marvellous t3
see the long vistas opened, of plenty
peace and prosperity. The Fremont
Herald adds a touch to the canvas:
"Nebraska can stow away at least
5,000,000 more people than we now have
in the state, and furnish a means of gain-
ing a livelihood for them when once the
western half of its soil has been brought
under suitable and reliable irrigation
ditches. It is often asserted by those
who should know the facts that a farm
of forty acres of irrigated land will yield
a more certain revenue than three times
that number when dependent upon the
rainfall, which in the western counties is

mistic view of Nebraska's future and
firmly believes that tho movement now
fairly started in the way of redeeming the
arid land within our borders, will bo the
means of producing results in the way of
developing the unused resources of the

chance to invest in city property.

effect that with the year '95 will come to

largely the fault of her own citizens for

The following from the Greeley Citizen
of a late date, concerning one well known
to many readers of The Journal, puts a
little different phase upon tho case from
what we had heard. It is a little out of
tho ordinary run of suits in court.
"The intricacies of the law wero never
so obvious as in tho case of the state of
Nebraska vs. Michael Lamb, decided by
his honor Judge Oles lnut Thursday.
Nearly three years ago Mr. Lamb was
accused of abetting two men to commit
a larceny in Boone county, and tho case
was tried in Platte county, where he was
found guilty, and sentenced to two years
in the penitentiary. His attorney Mr.
M. B.Gearon,at once instituted proceed
ings in the supreme court, and after one
of the hardest fights for his clients tho
supreme court reversed the verdict of
the jury, and then it was considered that
it was vain for Mr. Gearon to continue
the fight to save his client from the pen.
But while he was combatting the highest
court in the state he was laying tho foun
dation so that in spite of the jurv and
even the supreme court he could save his
client and he did so.
After the conviction ho procured
Lamb's release through a supersedeas
bond in the supreme court, and for two
years Mr. Lamb has been attending to
his farm. On Wednesday Sheriff Knvan
augh of Columbus, came to Greeley and
arrested Lamb on an order of tho dis
trict court of Platto county, to make him
serve out his sentence. Mr. Gearon
promptly began habeas corpus proceed
ings before Jndgo Oles alleging that his
term of imprisonment had expired and
that the court had no right to hold him
in jail any longer. The point relied
upon was that Judge Sullivan ordered
him into prison on Sept. 3rd, 1892, and
the record did not show that the order
had ever been revoked, and hence in con
templation of law Mr. Lamb was during
all the time in the jail in Columbus. So
complete was tho web woven that Sheriff
Kavanangh admitted that the states
attorneys claimed that the sentence was
served out. It is a great victory for Mr.
Gearon, and a very pleasant thing for
Mr. Lamb, and we may add that the
general feeling in our town was in hi3
