In looking over the records in the clerks office, in regard to the printing and furnishing of supplies, I find the fol lowing hills presented by the Sioux bounty Herald: E. D.

Now what do we find to have been the usage and practice in Sioux county. It is this. No contract has ev er liecn let for anything; but in looking up the records we (i rid that there has been paid out of the county funds to various parties the following amounts: - $1242..m 8-KS-l - 4.01 9.0") 22.4o - 700.f)." $2:iJ!.02 provided by Omaha Republican, Gibson Miller & Richardson, Hammond Bros., Fremont, Slate Journal Co., Lincoln, C. II. .uiihews & Co., Herafd Publishing Co., Total, Without a contract as law. Now tax payers of Sioux county can you see how the present county officials obey the law and how they dispose of your tnoney'r Will yon vote to continue this way of doing? Your county ollicers, contrary fo law, are parties to the fur nishing of supplies and printing. The Revised Statute of 1SH7, page 204, says; that no county ollicer shall in any man ner, either directly or indirectly, be fi nancially interested iu, or receive the benelit of any contracts executed by the county for the furnishing of supplies or any other purpose; neither shall any county ollicer furnish any supplies for tiie county on order of tiie coutity board, without a contract. The articles of incorporation of the Sioux County Herald Publishing Com pany, as filed in the olllce of county clerk, are signed by John W. Hunter and Anna E. Satterlee, by E. L. Satterlee her attorney. Mr. Satterlee is the county attorney and ought to know the law. Mr. John W. Hunter is ailoiltw county ollicer who, when able, sits in the chair of county Judge. Now these two county ollicials, Hunter and Satter lee, county judge and county attorney, are also the owners of the Sioux County Herald and Republican, two papers which are run in the interest of Hunter, Satterlee and the Ring, and anyone who conies under the displeasure of these di- ciples of the Ring are in danger of being run out of town or of being disposed of in some other way, and this has been MY fortune or misfortune for some two months past or rather since I dared to denounce the wrong doings of some of the county officials; and since that time nothing has been left undone by the ring in their endeavor to drive me from the lield, which they have failed thus far to do. I have given to the people of Sioux county a few of the many dirty trans actions of our county attorney and county judg.i and in answer they have published a lot of libel, ami slander against me. Among other things I have teen charged by the soft hearted editor of the Herald with having sold .out one of my clients for the sum of $200, which charge has been fully refuted by Mr. Lewis Oerla ,h (the client refered to) in a letter written by himself. The second charge made against nie by the Herald was that I had robbed my client and countrymen by means of false telegrams, which was also denied by Mr Uurlucb in his letter printed in the Journal. The next charge brought was that 1 had written and caused to le published, a criminal libel against the good,?) name of tho editor of the Herald, county at torney and postmaster at Harrison. 1 gave bonds in this case and was released and again arrested on a similar charge and this time released by the hist net Judge, the Hon. M. P. Kinkaid, at O'Neil, the Judgo being unable to see utiy cause why 1 should longer be held. 'Up to this time the county has lxen put 03ST TERMS. Jones & Verity, Harrison, Nebraska. to a cost of $250 or $300 as fees of olli cers, traveling expenses of Sheriff and court ex()enses; and all for what? Sim ply to endeavor to down me for expos ing the Ring. Then the Herald comes out and says we have already snt too much time on this nii'ii Walker and we will make amends iu a more substantial manner in the near future, which has lieen fully carried out by waylaying me in the dark with intent to murder me, But still that also failtl and in onler to keep me from being able to go out among the jieople to make a canvass. the Attorney and Judge have been quite busy arresting and trying me every few days, on some charge or other, and bind ing me over from day to day so as to keep me lroin making a canvass lor the olllce of county attorney, against Satter lee. That man can do more right down low dirt than any man in Sioux county. The last charge brought by him ag-ainst me, is one of having sold mort gaged projierty without the consent of (he mortgagee, and the county will have to pay another large amount of judge's and sheriff s fees. But what do such men care only to get fat fees and let the tax payers pay them. I am called all kinds of names but have no way to help myself while the present county court, with its pres ent judge exists. The judge will do any thing that the county attorney may ask, right or wrong. The last of all is this, and it is only in keeping- with the rest. Finding that Sal- terlee's chances for an election are slim, he requests Mr. I. P. J avis, the nominee of the Republican outfit, to resign in Satterlee's favor, and go out and work for him and help to elect him and then he will help him get the post-olllce or or some other fat job. The intention of (lie Ring is to curry this election fair or foul, so look out for ballot box shilling lid have someone keep a tally of all votes cast and the name of every voter, in the doubtful precincts. Respectfully, Geoki.e Walker. Fence or Herd, Which! El). JorilNAL: Ydu were kind enough week before last to publish my communication on the above topic. Now I oiler a few more thoughts and verifications of statements made then. It is very plain that this is not an exclusive country, but lat it is adapted to more pursuits than one or two. It is furthermore a fact at auy exclusive country is not adapt ed to that irenoral developement calcu lated to suit the mixed multitudes of this country. Then let us fosti r all the industries that our country will .sustain. We have no light to make against any legitimate business, but rather would protect any and all. For want of herd law, Hall, Hamlin; Leeling, Clark, 1 art and others have lost not less than $1,000 worth of properly, within our limited knowledge, by straying or being driven from the range and lost. For want of a herd law, Cobb, Shi It., 1 out, Will iams, Thomas, Biehle, Nelson, Robinson and others lost in crops, in the same cor ner of the county, $1,000 more. The improvements kept back for the same year is much greater. It is surprising to see how unanimous all the late immigrants are on this sub ject. Brooks. Oerlach, Wilcox, Tally and others with herds of 40 or 50 head, either fence or herd their stock rather thn have them depleted by the various causes sighted hefore. Suppose we do all fence: Where then is free range? The carrying out of the thing asked lor, would eli'ect ually prevent the thing wanted; so there is no consistency In the plea whatever. The cattle men, of large herds, only fence for hay or winter pasture. They do not want the country fenced; no, not a bit of it. We have no ill will for them as we said in our la'it. Let them stay. But it will be necessary for them to con form to the new order of things. Yours Respectfully, A. Chancier. WAR RON NET Oct, 20, 1888. Ed. Journal. We notice an article in the Herald stating that Mr. Walker claims that E. I). Satterlee gets $023.11 and $194 liesides making a total of $1117.11, according' to the Herald's figures, hut if you will no tice in the Journal of Sept. 13, Mr. Walker says that tho county attorney should have been pnid at tho rate of $300 )er annum but instead he was paid at tho rute of $500 per annum for his servi ces. Not satisfied with that amount the county attorney presents a bill on the fitl) of July for $100 and it was allowed, and the next bill was $134.32 for furn ishing of supplies and printing; making a total of $794.32. Just look at the diff erence. We wonder if there is any here after. If there is, we would think Mr. Herald would shake iu his boots.. Now we think we know what Mr. fi. ,is driyjng at. lie thinks lie will pull the wool over the farmers eyes so they can't see anything and keep Walker out of office. We say to the PEOPLE of S.OUX COU NTY; beware of false prophets and vote for Walker and Robinson.and by so doing put a stop to the damnable ring. Ha! ha! ha! more mulching in the Her ald. HURRAH FOR WALKER ANj ROBINSON. Yours Most Respectfully, iJt'ILL 1 RIVER. If you want a More Economic County Administration Vote for Walker and Robinson. FROM POI.K TO POLE.
