From Bert Galley, who returned om
the 24th nit. from his western trip of six
weeks with Dr.' and Mrs. Evans, Mr. sad
Mrs. Ed. Chambers of this plaee sad
others of Genoa, we get a brief outline
of their travels, which, given in annate
detail, would make a large book.
From here they .went directly to Salt
Lake City, staying over from Friday to
Monday viewing .the sights of the" city
and vicinity, snd' on Sunday attending
service at the Tabernacle, where, with
'about 8,000 other people, they listened
to ' Brigham Young, jr., and Joseph
Smith, jr., snd others. The Tabernacle
is a wonderful building in many, ways,
one of the unusual features being the
means of exit the immense congrega
tion were all out 'of 'the 'building in five
minutes from the time of dismissal. A
city and county building just completed
attracts much attention.
The first camp was made at Beaver
Canon, Idaho; where the Genoa party
joined the sojourners. This was within
a hundred miles of the National park.
They had two covered wagons and six
saddle' horses, and- made two camps in
reaching the park, where they 'stayed
two weeks. This is a body of land sixty
miles square reserved by the government
and in charge or two companies, or sol
diers, the main body being at Fire Hole
basin, the others in different parts, in
squads of three and' four. - Ten miles in
from the boundary of the park, it is laid
out, with roads nicely graded and mile
posts marking the distances and telling
the way. 'A. syndicate has erected
hotels at different places and runs a.
stage line for the, accommodation of
Parties entering the park are metby a
soldier. guard,and,-if they desire,' their
guns are taken and a receipt given'for
them; if not, theyjue sealed, and if, at
the end of their travels' in the park, the.
seal-is found broken "r)jni the guard, the
guns are confiscated,. The" guards are
always very strict about camp fires also.'
The next camp of the party was made at
Arangeer Idaho, where they tarried
fourteen days, and had a delightful time
of it. They passed over the continental
divide, where water falling out .of the
same small cloud may divide and go.
one portion to the Atlantic ocean, the
other to the Pacific.
". In the list of game are sage hens, blue
and willow grouse' porcupine, deer, elk,
and fish in abundance, the party one
day catching 95 pounds of trout. The
most wonderful sight of the trip was the
geysers. They stopped with Old Faith
ful and saw him spout half a dozen
times; every 59. minutes, as regular as. a
clock, he throws a stream 150 feet high
and holds it up five minutes. A brief
description of all the geysers would fill
a large book. .d. Chambers, who was.
with this party, says that you never have
the feeling there of perfect security,
there is so much loose earth, and so
many places where steam comes up. -
There is a place called fire hole, where
the water is heated to a temperature 80f
above boiling and, underneath this
water, about ten feet from the surface,
is very clearly visible a blue blaze of
fire, a phenomenon that has puzzled
They met English and European
tourists, vho all agreed that America

. J. S. Freeman returned Thursday
from the convention at TopekaKansas,
to which he had been appointed as" a
delegate by Gov. Holcomb. There .were
about five hundred present, and the
whole subject of deep harbors and cheap
transportation was gone over in speeches
and conferences. The general' idea was
that as a deep harbor had been secured
on' the gnlf, the next thing was cheap
railroad communication therewith. One
man suggested that to get at this at the
earliest day possible, a good idea would
be to form a syndicate, .buy-up a large
portion of the grain of the western
country, and have the railroads now"
doing business compete for the carry
ing of the grain. Mr. Freeman says that
everybody was enthusiastic over the
future of the great west, and what is in
prospect for the association to help
along. If the tenth part of these pros
pects is realized, Galveston will be the
seaport of alL this region, and will be
come a very, large city, because a gath
ering and distributing point for an im
mense region of country. The bay has
an area of 475 square miles, and of this,
480 acres have a depth of 30 feet and
1400 acres a depth of 25 feet. One of
the schemes of the association is to have
a grand exposition in the not-distant
future, for which there are already four
cities "in lively competition. A com
mittee was appointed with power to call
conventions, suggest state and national
legislation, gather and disseminate in
formation, correspond with business
men and associations, steamship or other
transportation" companies, etc. There is
no doubt but the work of the associa
tion will result in great good in many
ways to the country between the gulf
and the north boundary in one direc
tion and the Rocky mountains and the
Mississippi'river the other way.-
. The books in the county treasurer's"
office of Platte county show that there
have have been received the following
fees since January lst,.1892: Jury .fees
in "civil cases, $79; in criminal cases, $99
or a total of 3178,' actual fees paid over
to the county treasurer, by Gus Speice",
clerk, rince. 1892, or four full .'years.
Now, is it a fact that we have had but
three jury trials, a year or have -we .had
more? The jurors who sat on the differ
ent cases will know it to be a fact that
we have had more. If we had ten at
each term of court and four terms. per
year it would-be forty cases for which
should -.be turned over by. Clerk Speice
in four 'years $800. As he has turned
over.but J178, he would' have on hand,
on this -basis, $622 of county funds on'
jury cases. The statute of the state,
reads'" as follows, section 3028 page 700:
"There'shall be paid by the party against
whom a verdict is rendered! in the dis
trict court, a 'jury fee of five dollars, to
be taxed in the-bill of costs, and when
collected to be paid into the 'county
treasury; and for each trial by the court
a fee of one dollar, to be taxed, collected,
and paid in a like, manner, for the use of
the county." Section 3029 provides as
above, only a fee of six dollars is charged
in criminal cases.' What has become of
George Randall 'returned last week

whieh of coarse is s privilege no one

it he ought not go out of the way to
slur Mr. Grafs opponent, Mr. BahL
against whose ability to discharge the
duties of the ofitae of county clerk, and
his integrity to fulfill those duties in
strict accordance with law and to the
best interests ef the people of Platte
county, not one word can be truthfully
said. And just because,' as the Telegram
coafasses, "there is nothing particularly
to say against Mr. PoM," it immediately
adds "but that he accepted, a nomina
tion brought about by such disreputa
ble bargain and sale as' attended the
making up of the mongrel ticket" In
'another part of the same paragraph oc
curs the phrase "a'rebuke to the base'
means-resorted to in the selection of the
mongrel ticket." In other words, Mr.
Pbhl is all right but, like poor old dog
Tray, he' is in bad company. So! The
hundreds of voters of the republican
party of -Platte county, together with
the greater hundreds of the independ
ents, in addition to the scores upon
scores of the democratic party, all. of
whom, while not, in the least, diminish
ing their zeal to their special party,
have deliberately concluded that the
best interests of all political parties and
the best business interests of theconnty
demand a thorough, radical change in
the roster of county officials, and that
the only way to secure -it is by combin
ing forces for that purpose. This purr
pose will be held in view right along,
'notwithstanding the Telegram's epithets
of "rag-tag and bob-tail" and "mongrel."
It 'is no -newthing for those who lack
arguments to calt names, and for those
who are in the wrong to 'try to cast op
probrium on those seeking to correct
wrong. The people know what theyare
doing. "In union there is strength."
The "bosses"' have not succeeded in
keeping the great body of voters on
county officials separated in the support
of three or four different tickets, and if
their other plan of "trading" fails to
materialize, victory, is with the citizens'

We believe that hard times, poor crops
and the various "calamities that strike
the business column as it passes along,'
hit hardest the honest retail dealer in
dry-goods, groceries, and the other nec
essaries of life, who has, by trusting his
customers through -the pinch, endeav
ored to help them solve their problem
of living until better times should come.
Hundreds of families have thus been
helped through the 'past summer by the
retail dealer, at the greatest of risk to
himself. Many of them, here and there,
have failed in business because of it, or
partly because of it.
If debts were not .contracted, or if
they could be paid promptly when due,
business men could meet their engage
men tst but .when -they trust customers
for goods and cannot or do not get their
pay, there must- be an end, and it is
generally not in favor qf the dealer.
. We all owe it to those grocers, mer
chants and others who have carried us
through the past summer, to .meet our
obligations with . them at the very first
Each amount may be small only a
few dollars, all the better for us but
when footed up by the dealer, they
make a good, round sum, which, if he
had in "spot cash," would pay his bills,
take the burden off his mind, and lift
off his heart which has been his during
all the waking hours, for many past days
Think of yourself as in his place,, and
you will surely make a sacrifice in order
to "square up" (square is a good word)
and start again with fresher courage.

some of our best business men entered
the' work of tha past summer, and how
nobly they have done their duty to their
customers. and the community of busi
ness interests of which they, are an im
When nearly every individual was
doubtful and despondent as to what the
outcome would be, and whether those
trusted for the necessaries of life could
be able to pay at the end of the season,
these men took the risk and have carried
us through thus far.
Now, let us give them a lift by paying
immediately,, if not all," then the greater
part of what we owe them.

Mrs. Brindley is making a popular
candidate.-' She is not neglecting her
business- of teaching school to elec
tioneer, but is keepipg"right' along with
her regular work. It is", not necessary"
for. her to tell any stories either her
life in Platte county-since her early
youth tells what no mere campaign' talk
for effect can do-in the way of convinc
ing fair-minded people of her ability to
conduct the affairs of the office of super
intendent of schools of Platte county.
What is needed in that oQice is a
scholar', and one thoroughly informed
in methods, of imparting instruction.
Besides this, a superintendent is under
obligation by reason of the duties of the
office to "visit each of the schools of the
county at least once in each year, to ex
amine carefully into the discipline and
modes of instruction, and into the pro-"
gress and proficiency of the pupils, and
to make a record of the same, and to
counsel with teachers and district boards
as to the course of study to be pursued,
and for the improvement of the instruc
tion and discipline of the school; to note
the condition of the -school house and
appurtenances thereto, and to .suggest a
place for new school houses to be erect
ed, and for wanning and ventilating the
same; and for the general improvement
of the school house and grounds: to
promote, by. public lectures and teach
ers' institutes, and by such othermeans
as he may devise' for the improvement
of the schools in the" country, and the
elevation of. the character and qualifica
tions of the "teachers thereof;' to'consult
with the teachers and school boards, to
secure general and regular attendance
of the'children of the county upon the

It is not necessary nor becoming in
our county superintendents' of schools
to pass" the greater portion of their time
at the county -seat, when .- it is" well
known that they do not visit the schools
there, and we undertake to say for Mrs.
Brindley that she will make the law
prescribing her duties," her rule of con
duct in that and every other particular.
We ask our readers to take 'note now of
the above important functions and du
ties of the superintendent as laid down
in the law, and after Mrs. Brindley: is
well along in her first year's work give
ns your opinion of what she is doing to
earn the -money that. Platte county .will
be paying her.
The people of the United States
learned long ago that there is no sex in
education. By far the greater-number
of teachers of the country are ladies,
and their employment during the last
forty years, notjjnly in the public
schools; but also in academies, .semina
ries, colleges and universities, as well as
superintendents of private and public
educational institutions, has been fully
justified by the work they have done,
and the progress they have made, un
precedented in the world's history, -during
the same length of time.
There is abundant ' reason to believe
that where lady teachers, (eminent for
good moral character and teaching abil
ity, as in Mrs. Brindley's case),- are
selected ss county superintendents, they
give excellent satisfaction.
