Present full board and county clerk. Commissioners Walker and McAllister having been appointed a committee to inspect the location fcr a bridge across the Birdwood creek, make the following report: That they proceeded in company with the county surveyor to Birdwood Creek, and that they found the most practicable place for said bridge on the township line between townships 14 and 15, range 33; that they found upon meas uring that said bridge would be about 100 feet long; that they marked said location with stakes and mounds. It being necessary for public use it is hereby ordered that a public road be opened, beginning op tho northwest cor- ner of section 6, township 14, range 32, and running thence west on said section line two miles and terminating on the northwest corner of section 2, twp 14, range 32.

Wise the son of the man who ordered old "Ossowatomie's" execution Gov. Wise, would be clamoring for a seat in a Re publican National convention. Atchison. Champion. The Milwaukee Sentinel says, regard ing the mugwump vote: "The mug wump of 1884 who Is a free-trader, will, of course, yoto the democratic ticket this year. As Jir. t;urtis remarked many months ago the reform issue is overshad owed by the free trader will support the candidates of the republican party. The mugwump as such disappeared from the scene With the nomination of Harrison. This year he will be a democrat or a re publican." Mr. G. W. Smalley, the able London correspondent of the New York Tribune, summarizes the English view of our Presidential campaign very clearly when he says : "I have not met a single En glishman who does not wish for Mr. Cleveland's election, not one who does not believe that English trade and manu factures will benefit by his triumph." Twenty five years ago it would have been equally difficult to meet an Englishman who did not believe and hope and pray that the wac for the preservation of our Union woijld be a failure. But the re bellion was put down and Mr. Cleveland will be defeated in spite of British opinion." The disposition of some of the demo cratic leaders to appeal to Mr. Randall for help has called attention to a fact which some of the free triders don't know. That is. that Mr. Randall has in his possession letters from the democratic committee, written during the last cam paign, urging him to come to their help and to make protection speeches in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, while about the same time tho committee wrote to Abram S. Hewitt, of New York, who had contemplated entering the campaign, urging him not to proceed to those states to advocate his views upon the tariff. Possibly Mr. Mills may receive letters of that sort before the campaign shall be over. Mr. Randall is not talking for publication to any one, but it is known that in recent private conferences with some of his more intimate friends he has expressed the opinion that Mr Cleveland will most certainly be defeated, and that the party cannot hope to win upon the platform laid down in the house by Mr. Mills and. Ms free-trade allies from the south. Bob Iugersoll told the crowds at Chicago that when the holler was out of the lungs the sense would come to the head. The time has now come for the democratic party. The holler is out of their lungs and the sense has begun to come to their heads, aud with it there are premonitions of defeat.

The Democratic party is tho queerest political compound on the face of the earth. It is composed of free traders, Copperheads and Confederates; and is frantically supported by every English newspaper, by every English free trader, by English manufacturers, by every American free trader, by every carping mugwump, by nine-tenths of the saloon keepers, brewers and distillers of the United States. Its head, dictator and candidate for the Presidency is the most nollossal Chump this country has ever produced. Its nominee for the Vice Presidency is an old Ohio Copperhead, whose chief distinction lies in the fact that he has a record as an "obstructionist." Its emblem.is an old red bandana. Its history is the aggregated political crimes of the United States for the last seventy five yean. What do intelligent Ameri can workingmen and American patriots think of this unique aggregation.
