of the Court by calling a jury of re

Yesterday we had the pleasure of
meeting Mr, M. Vf. Benschoter,
ono of the prominent citizens and
founders of the thriving town of
Loup City, Sherman county. From
him we learned many interest
ing facts concening this rapidly
rising placo, which has had a re
markable growth sjneo its founda
tion. It Is a fact that towns in Ner
braska have sprung Into existence
in a night, as it were, and assumed
important proportions almost before
any body knew that there were any
such places. This wa3 tle case witli
Loup City, which was laid out a
little over a year ago, the first house
being completed March 4th, 1873.
To-day the place contains between
330 and 400 inhabitants, and new
arrivals arp daily coming in. There
are two grocery Etorc3 ono drug
store, two dry goods stores, one
brlek yard, a saw-mill, etc. Brick
and lumber are to be had in abund
ance, and at very reasonable rates.
Arrangements arc being made to
start a grist mill.
The middle Loap valley, in which
Loup City is located, is one of the
garden spots of America. Red
cedar abounds a few miles above
The valley is six to seven miles
wide, the uplands qre rolling, pro
ducing the best grasses in the world,
and affording the very be-t grazing
grounds-for cattle. During the
whole of last winter cattle did not
eat more than fifty pounds of hay
each. Stone for building purposes,
is to be had in abundance.
The educational facilities of the
placo aro excellent, as a fine school
house lias been built, and a good

The soil of the middle Loup Val

its wheat growing qualities "are un

by a Camp Meeting-
The great revivalist, Mrs. Maggie
Van Cott, whose eloquent labors
were not without their effect In
Omaha some few months ago, will
return to this city the latter part of
next week, when religious excite
ment will probably run higher by
far than it did on her first visit here.
Since that time she has been in ev
ery part of the country, spreading
the gospel, and converting the
heathen by thousands, but in all
her travels she has failed to find a
place, it is said, that can so well
stand, and really needs, a second
visitation from her, as does
Omaha. Be that as it may,
she is coming, with the hope
of converting every man and wo
man, young and old, who is not en
tirely beyond the hope of redemp
tion. Arrangements are being made to
accommodate the large numbers
that will flock to hear her. An
immense tent, the property of the
Methodist State Conference, which
wa3 purchased for camp meeting
purposes four j'ears ago, will be
erected on the vacant lot adjoining
the First Methodist Church,.south
east corner of Capitol avenue and
Seventeenth street. It will bo put
up on Monday. It will be circular
in shape, being CO feet in diameter.
The entrance will be on Capitol av
enue; the pulpit is to be next to the
church, in front of the choir seats,
both of which are to be enclosed in
a small frame building opening into
the tent Gas fixtures are to be put
in, and a floor will be laid down.
The seats will run east and west,
there being an aisle north and south.
The tent will be able to comfortably
seat between eight and nine hun
dred people. It is not so large as
was expected, as jt was thought at
first that it would accommodate
Mrs. Van Cott will begin her work
a week from next Sunday, and will
continue to hold meetings till the
10th of June, when sho will proceed
to San Francisco.
Arrangements have been made to
hold a Methodist camp meeting in
this tent, after Mrs. Van Cott's de
parture, beginning on the loth of
Junp, pnd continuing ten days. It
is expected ttyat ministers from all
parts of the State Will be in atten

A Flying Trip Through Douglas
County, by way of Sarpy, " 3
Pappillion, Millard -
I Correspondence of the Bee
Oma.ua, May 15, 1874.
In a recent trip through the
western and central part of our
flourishing county, we saw many
improvements that challenged our
admiration, and made us under
stand more readily than by mere
hearsay, that Douglas county is re
taining the lead which it has always
held in the State sisterhood of
counties. Leaving Omaha by the
U. P. express; going first south
down through Sarpy county, stop
ping for a few moments at the
young but flourishing town of
Papillion, we pass on through the
most beauLful farming country in
Nebraska the valleys of the
Pappio's and twenty miles from
Omaha by rail, (but twelve by
wagon road) we stop at Millard the
first station we reach i Douglas
eounty. It boasts of one of the
finest depot buildings 011 the U. P.;
large, commodious, comfortable,
and is well tenanted by the gentle
manly agent, Mr. Stewart. The
town site has been but lately laid
out, and is owned chiefly by Mr.
Millard, the banker in our city, in
honor of whom the station - is
named. It occupies a very pretty
piece of ground on the valley of
of what is called the Big Pappio,
and is surrounded by the lest farm
ing land in our State. A very fair
hotel furnishes the "comforts of life
at reasonable prices," dispensed by
A very fine storehouse, contain
ing an excellent assortment of gen
eral merchandise, attracts the Atten
tion of all visitors, who are more
highly delighted after meeting with
the kind and courteous co-proprietor
Mr. Cartner, to whom with his ac
complished lady much of the social
as well as the mercantile success of
Millard is to be attributed. Mr.
Cartner is in partnership with
Messrs. Pomroy & Kennedy, the
firm doing a large business in lum
ber and general merchandise at
Pappillion as well as Millard. Mr.
John Green, of Omaha, lias a ware
house at this point for the storage
of grain, large quantities being
handled here yearly. Millard is
sure to be a thriving little point in
time and will well repay any invest
ments there. It Is" surrounded by
fine tarms and livo farmers. Per
example at Dr. Link's, one mile
from Millard, his daughter intro
duced us to the "Omaha Daily Bee,"
a fine blooded cow, the best milker
on thefarm. We think this stamps
the young lady as a person of good
Mr. Hollenbeok ha3 a fine farm of
several hundred 'acres, ashortdis
tuuee from Millard, and is one of
the best practical farmers in our
county. Leaving Millard again, go
ing seven miles further on the U.
P., we reached Elkhorn, a very
prosperous and thrjvnig little (own.
Owing' to spine land dispute, Elk
horn lias been at a stand still for
several years, but as that unfortu
nate affair is now settled, it Is tak
ing quite a start. Its mercantile in
terests are well represented. Mr. J.
W. Stewart, who lias one of the
largest stores, and finest assorted
stocks to be found iii any small
town between Omaha and Ogden,
pronounces traxjo to be lookjng up,
and everything indicative of pros
perous and lively times at harvest.
Many buildings are In process of
erection, among others, we notice
one owned by Mr. J. R. Silras, the
U. E- travelling photographer, who
has" already rented the upper 6tpry
to the Masons for lodge meetings,
and who intends renting the lower
floor for a store room.
By the way, we had tlie pleasure
of meeting tills gentleman and an
interesting anecdote he relates us of
his first xjerience in traveling car
photograpy may not be amiss here.
About four years ago he thought
that if he could obtain a car of the
U. P., fit It up as a photograph gal
lery, and run it from town to town
on tlie road that it would be a pro
fitable, though novel venture. Hav
ing made all arrangements ho was
seated in his car one evening ready
to start out on his first trip. He sat
with his elbow out of the window,
and as they were passing through
the yard near where the smelting
works now are, Jtsprappd against
some coal cars on a switch laying
too close to the main track, and his
arm was broken badly. He tells me
at the tlmo ho had but one dollar
and a half in this world beside his
stock in the car. Tills unfortunate
accident would have deterred some
men, but not him. He laid off at
Elkhorn, sent for a brother photog
rapher from Fremont who had just
been burnt out; had him tend to his
business while he was sick; rook it
in charge himself when well, and
ha been doing a fine buMnoss over
since. Verily; "the darkest hour is
just before day,"
G. N. Crawford, Esq., is refitting
his store-room, preparatory to going
into business again, and as he adds
great energy and shrewdness to his
other good qualities, he cannot fail
to be successful.
Now, as to the educational inter
est., as this is one which, of course,
greatly interests all new comers.
Elkhorn boasts of one of tlie finest
school in the county. It is under
the care of Prof. John Rush, one of
tlie ablest and oldest Douglas county
teachers. While lie has charge,
supported as he is by a live district
board, the school aflajra of F-lkljorn
will lie above par, '
TlieSilvarHouohas been refitted
and furnished throughout, and is
giving satisfaction to all while un
der the charge of the obliging host,
We understand that a lumber
yard js about to be opened at this
place; that arrangements are about
completed whereby stock yards will

James Stephenson Eises to Explain.
The Herald, while congratulating
itself upon the verdict in the case
against it for violation of the fire lim
it ordinance, takes occasion to be
smear the jury and Judge Wilbur
witn the most fulsome praise, and
to apply to me the most opprobrisus
epithets. No doubt the Police Judge
and the jury did their simple duty,
and deserved the praise bestowed
I, too, did my duty, and yet I am
abused for it. Why? Because I
dared to prosecute the Herald pro
prietors for what I thought a viola
tion of the lira limit ordinance.
That was the only way I had to find
out whether I was right or wrong.
I am abused because I had the vim
to proceed against tlie Herald outfit
who undoubtedly think themselves
the "great I am" of this commu
nity. They were amazed that I should
have the cheek to raise a question
concerning the erection of their
building. They considered it the
greatest impudence on my part to
think of rightfully interfering with
them, the great moguls of Omaha.
Would they have said one word
against me, had I taken tlie same
steps against some poor man ? No !
But they are thunderstruck at my
action in including the rich and
poor, high and low, in this matter.
I wish, Mr. Editor, to state a few
facts in regard to this case. I was
twenty-four hours trying to get a
warrant, and finally, when Judge
Wilbur did give mo a warrant, he
wanted me to be good for the costs
if I should be beaten.
He first wanted $25.00 costs guar
anteed, and when I was about to
take the complaint to another court,
he dropped to $5.00 costs, which I
guaranteed, and he went on with
tho case. Now, I would like to ask
what kind of action is this on the
part of Judge Wilbur? What au
thority has he for it ?
Judge Wilbur met a certain Coun
cilman on the street, and told him
to get me to withdraw the case. An
hour afterwards, Marshal Snowden
saw the same Councilman, to get
him to have mo withdraw the com
plaint. The Councilman said that
lie could not do it.
Judge Wilbur, and all the rest,
told me I would get beaten in the
It is a fact that not one of the
jurymen owned a brick building,
and one of them wants to violate

the fire limit ordinance. -,
You will observe, therefore, what
odds I had to contend against, and
you will not be surprised that I was
beaten. But would not the result
liave'beeu'diflfc'ren'tj if sore poor
man, or unimportant cuss, or blath
erskite, had been putting up the
Herald building, or one similar to it?
