of access and has a central location.

A correspondent of the State Journal, writing
from Logan, gives the following account of the
forgeries of B. H. Mitchell: "The forged county
warrants of B. H. Mitchell, ex-county clerk and
judge, are accumulating very day nntil about
$900 have turned' np and there is no guessing
where the ead may be. The bank of Arnold is
the heaviest loser so far as known, with the First
National of North Platte and the Logan County
bank a good second and third. Honaker Bros.,
money loanors of Gandy, and Hupfer of North
Platte are also out large amounts on snide chat
tel mortgages, while his bondsmen are also out
on money paid into his hands as district court
clerk and squandered for drink and gambling.
The board of county commissioners have offered
a reward of $100 for his return and conviction on
any one of tho "many forgeries, while the banks
and his bondsmen are raising a purse to odd to
the reward, which will make the amount in the
neighborhood of $300. He mortgaged not only a
large amount of ficticious property but also his
wife's team, as well as her house and lots in Gan
dy, and after the mortgage was acknowledged
forged her name thereto. His offico fees were
sufficient to make him more than a comfortable
living, but "Strong drink hath destroyed many."
A gentleman in North Platte tells how ho has
been known to carry off at the gaming tables
there in one night six hundred dollars, but he
doesn't say who carried oil the same money the
next night. He did not stop when his term of
office as county clerk expired, but supplied him
self with blank warrants and has been forging the
name of the present clerk, C. C. Beckwith. A
large number of the warrants have found pur
chasers amongst the brokers of Lincoln. His of
fice has been declared vacant, and next week an
election will be ordered to fill his place as county
judges also to vote bonds to complete the court
A new time card will go into effect
