Each box is numbered, the number being the number of the district Every paper pertaining to the history of tne aismci is piacea in lis proper re ceptacle. Thus it is only the work of a minute to see if there is anything lacking that is required to constitute a legal formation. In gathering up these papers it is found many important documents are missing. Elsewhere will b9 found Gen. Thay- . rm n m er's proclamation onering a rewara ior the apprehension and conviction of the murderer of Fred Fischer. In this con nection it is not out of place to refer to the circumstances of the murder. Fred Fischer was killed at his home on the lower end of Brady Island about the 15th of June last, but the body was not found until several days later, in an advanced stage of decomposition. He had been shot through the head, the ball entering from behind. After the killing, the body had been dragged into the brush for con cealment. Money was not the object of the murder, as was evidenced by the fact that no robbery was committed. At the inquest nothing was elicted that would iustify an arrest. Only about two things were manliest ne uau ueu muruereu, but had not been murdered for money. To discover the murderer will take time and expense. Hence the proclamation of the Governor. Although rather late, it is yet possible to bring the guilty party to justice if he can be found. Fischer was a native of Germany, about 50 years of age, and was one of tne early settlers of the county. FOR RENT House with two rooms. The feasibility of holding a Mikado party, or one of that nature, is being talk ed up, the affair to take place soon after the Lenten season has closed.

County Treasurer Osgood is making a vigorous effort to collect old delinquent personal taxes. A good many people are considerably surprised when confronted with these old accounts. It may come hard to pay them , but it is only justice to those who have been regular contributors to the public funds for years that their fellow citizens should assist in the work. During the past four weeks The Tri bune has added over one hundred sub scribers to its list, an indication that the paper is not retrograding in the eyes of the public. The publishers have several improvements in view which will redound to the interests of the readers in more ways than one. To the friends who have in the past spoken good words for the paper, we return our thanks, and trust they will keep up the good work they have inaugurated. R. D. Thomson has been employed by the commissioners to draw plans for the jail, which are completed. The design we should judge is an excellent one, and if adopted the building will be a sightly structure, much more ornament al than the plain structure contemplated a few years ago . It will stand on the southeast corner of the block west of the court house, an excellent location. Sixty-nine dogs jiavo applied to City Clerk Warner for license to live another year. Mr. Warner is very obliging in this matter, and when a dog comes armed with three dollars there is no difficulty in the way, but if they come without the money thev are turned over to the tender mercies of the city marshal to be provided for according to law. ah gooa aogs snouia have a little money now-a-days, if they want to enjoy the pleasures of this vain world. The scheme for the formation of a a military company promises success, about twenty young and ablebodied men having signified their desire to join. E. B. Warner is taking a leading part in the recruiting service and we apprehend that it will not be long until he will have acquired the title of Captain. The com pany will not be organized with less than twenty-five names, and wo don't believe it will be a very difficult matter to get forty. Missionary work being in order, per haps the street commissioner could do some good by bending his energies in that direction. In some of the alleys in the business part of town the winter's ac cumulations of debris can be removed with profit to the general public in a sani tary sense. The s. c. may not consider this missionary work, but we think it is; cleanliness is next, to godliness, and some people might be converted to cleanliness as a means of saving grace. A large and good natured crowd attended the Presbyterian ten-cent concert at the Belton residence Thursday evening, and we believe all present had about as pleasant a time as they could desire.

Ry. and the engi neers, but negotiations of compromise if any were had evidently cam9 to naught. The managers of the Q Company are operating their road, of course with great inefficiency, but the business is confined wholly to local traffic. Very few through passengers are carried, and shippers of course will not send their goods by that line. The efforts of the company to make sther companies recieve. their freight and cars, may result in favorable edicts by the courts, but that will not help them much ; people will not ship by a line whose cars are liable to be side-tracked and be. months in reaching their destination. As long as the strike continues the Q. will be under a cloud. Already the company hus sustained immense loss, running up into millions of dollars. In justice to the pub lic, if for no other consideration, a com promise should be effected without, delay Ruin in a great measure to business of the people living along the line' of its ' roads, and bankruptyare inevitable results of the present policy. At one time there were fears of a gen eral strike, but there appears to be no danger of that now ; the policy of the en gineers is changed. The sympathy of the general public has been with them from the start, but a general strike would lose them this moral support. By pursuing their present policy they will attain their ends and retain the support of the people. Real Estate Transfers.

To gain tho position, sin average of seven years as apprentice and fireman is required, aud when he finally attains the object of his years of toil, he holds his position only by a thread liable to be snapped at any moment by a superintendent or manager on the slightest accident over which the engineer possibly had no control. After the long years of hard and hazardous toil to which he has been subjected before pro motion, he is fitted for no other business. He knows nothing about the transactions of the various branches of merchantile business ; his peculiar occupation has con fined his knowledge almost exclusively to that line. Is it not just then that the hazards of his callings should receive adequate compensation? His responsi bilities are great; the property of the com pany and the lives of the passengers are largely In his keeping. Is he not entit led to something more than the paltry reward of the common day laborer? The general public think that he should, and hence the sympathies of the people are with the engineers in their strike on the Burlington for their rights. We trust that they will soon bo secured.
