Hon. J. E. North returned from the
Bleak Hills Monday, where he went on a
quick business trip. He says that gold
duet ia plentiful, especially at Dead wood
which ia tolerably strong evidence that
it is a good mining country.
One of our Platte county land ageata
eaya that Platte oouaty ia not receiving
proper share of imaugratioa. Ha com
plains that the citizens of Columbus do
not take pains to talk up the advantages
of Platte county for eettlers as against
the newer counties; that our land ia
fully as good, it not better, than the new
counties adjoining it, that our markets
and ready access to market are much
preferable to any other, and yet we do
not receive oar just share of immigra
tion. He explains by saying that part
ies coming here with a view to purchas
ing land stop 'at the Clother or Ham
mond house, and that they . naturally
come into conversation with farmers
from other counties who present the
claims of their respective localities for
consideration, and thus the immigrant
ia induced to go elsewhere. Our friend
does aot wish to be understood as oen
earing these farmers for trying to secure
immigrants, but he does not believe
that our own people are active enough.
If the citizens of Platte county would
make an effort to talk up their own lo
cality he believes that we could retain a
large share of the immigration to this
section of the state, and thus immensely
increase the value of land in Platte coun
ty, and greatly benefit every business
interest of Columbus.

An order has been received by Post
master Kramer from the department
directing. the rural carriers to make a
report of all unmulable packages carri
ed by them during, the month of Jan
uary, 1910. This will be done by all
the carriers in the service, and it is
quite probable that the dta obtained
will be used in connection with propos
ed parcels post legislation. And in con
nection with the rural service, another
order has been issued regarding the
penny nuisance. This is one thing the
department ia trying to put atop, to and
instructs the carriers and postmasters
to use their efforts to induce patrons to
place postage on their mail instead of
depositing pennies in tbe boxes.

.The Doxeya Indicted for Murder.
A St. Louis dispatch of December 18,
tells of the last step in the Doxey ones,
as follows; Charged with murder in
the first degree in connection with the
death last July of William J. Erder. Dr.
Lorea B. Doxey of Columbus, Neb., aad
his wife, Dora EV Doxey. are tonight
held ia tbe city jail. No eommsaiea-
tioa may paw between them except ia
writing and that only after the jailor
hat approved the missives.
They are charged with responsibility
for the death here on July 10, of William
J. Erder, who died after a brief illness.
Mrs. Doxey, it is charged, was married
to Erder a few weeks before hie death.
Analysis of Krder'e visoera revealed
considerable arseaio therein. The in
formation of the oircuit attorney upoa
whicfi Mm. Doxey was brought here
from Nebraska charged that Erder waa
gtVsn poison in his food.
Tbe court's action waa taken on the
application of Harry Roeskopf, aeaiatant
circuit attorney, who appeared in open
court and announced that indictments
had been1 found against Dr. aad Mrs.
He then asked that the warraate be
issued, adchag that the iadiotmenU
would be returned into court as sooa as
they had been drawn up and verified.
