If this is done and the commissioners insist on (,'ettingagood job, a large amount of work would need to be done on the two larger bridges, fr the joints are in had liaie. There is a chance for the timbers of the truss to slip and then the strength oi lhe bridge is gone. The rods whi hold the truss together have only large washer, instead of an iron plate, sucn as we are used to seeing on bridge; which reaches over the different parts of me joint and leaves no chance to slip, The plan of the bridges as on file in cons ly clerk's olllce are very meagre, so that the contractors had but little to guide them, and we could find no record o: an agreement which stilted that the work should lie done in a good and work man-hke manner. We found a bond given by the contractors but it did not contain that point, so it is only "subject to the approval of the board." Now that the finances of Sioux county are so low it is no more than right and justice to all that the county board insist that the county receive full value for every dollar jiaid out. At the meeting of the hoard last Monday the Knott bridge was accepted and also the one at Grew ell's, togetlier with the Ave culverts. Hie bridge across Antelope is to be so clanged as to comply with the survey, and the Montrose bridge is to receive more supports. There apiears to have been a little negligence on the part of all and it is to'lie hoped that for the general good more care will be exercised in fu ture.

Word was sent Coroner Andrews and he left Saturday afternoon for the scene. He had lieen called by the people there w ho desired that he see the bodies and report. He held no inquest as there was no occasion for it and simply made his report. It was a sad case and it is hoped that our county will not be visited by any more such storms.

' Roads from the Valley. r.ver since the writer lias been ac quainted with Sioux county the question of a good road from the north part of the county to Harrison has been discussed, A short time liefore we moved to Harri son, during a business visit to Omaha we culled at the headquarters of the F. E. & M. V. railroad and in our conversa tion with the officials- we mentioned the road matter and asked if such a thing could be done as to get the management to assist iu getting n good wagon road across the pine hills. We were informed that such work was out of the general line, but they desired that we look the matter up and report to them after we had an opportunity to see what was ueedwf. -A few weeks ago we forwarded to headquarters a map showing the lav of the land, the course of the line of rail road and the elevation of tlie country On last Friday P. Whitney, president of the townsite department came to Har rison and spent some time in looking up the condition of affairs. On his return to Chadron he met Capt. Ainsworth chief of engineers, and talked the matter over with him, and next morning he tel egniphed us that Capt. Ainsworth and P. E. Hull were coming up on the train and for us to meet them at depot. The re sult was that the chief surveyor was in structed to stop here on his return from Douglass and do the work we desired It was thought that it could be accom plished in a couple of days. The surveyors arrived on Monday and that evening took a drive down Sow- telly canyon and up over the road laid out bv trie county commissioners. On Tuesday a good deal of work was done with a view to getting a road up Sow belly a part of the way and then out a side canyon, as recommended by Sheriff Pfost. Here a road could be made with grade of five feet to the hundred feet, but it would run through a good deal of rock so that it would be considerable ex pense. the otner places were noi looseu up on account of lack of time. The sur eyors had to go to Chadron on Wednes day to do some work and Mr. Chapman was not satisfied with what lie had ac complished and is in hopes of gettin, orders to return soon and look the matter up in detail. The question of a good road is of vast importance to the jsjople of this place as well as those in the north part ot the county, and a grand effort should be made to get one. If the company show a disposition to assist in the matter the people ought by all means to unite and do all in their power to second the advan ces of the company. It matters not where the road comes so that we get a good one. We will give no opinions in regard to the various routes but will wait until we get a report of the work of the surveyors and then tell our read ers just how they look at it. If the com pany is going to put any money into it they will want to put where it will do the most good, and the people of Sioux county can well afford to let them have their own way so long as they pay for it. The fact that no public money can be had for this purpose until after July 1, 1MIM), puts the tact liefore us that the money must be raised by private sub scription. We hope the jieople north of the hills will take tlie matter in hand and get organized so as to tell what they will do, and that the business men of Harrison will begin to take hold of the matter with a view to putting money into tlie work whenever and wherever the railroad people decide. .
