The attempt to organize a gigantic salt trust has fallen flat There was too much speculation in it to suit c-apital-igts. The treasurer of Warren county, Ohio, has been found short 63,000. He in also charged with other crookedness and is held under arrest. It appears to be a hard year on crooked official all along the line. John L. Sullivan is under arrest in Mississippi for fighting contrary to tlie laws of the state. If lie and his opio nent are both sent to the pen for a good long term it will prove a benefit to tlie world at large. The employes on the Pekin Gazette, in China have had their wages advanced from 20 to 22 cents per day. The Gazette has been published continuously for 800 years, and people in Pekin have now ar rived at tlie conclusion that it has "come to stay." Omaha is rejoicing over tlie assurance that a $500,000 tannery is to be located there. This will be a gain for tlie eutire state as it will be an industry Uiat will benefit the entire state. Every man ufacturing establishment that ojierates in Nebraska benefits all the residents, directly or indirectly. It is reported that English capitalists are getting in shape to purchase the cot ton mills of this country. Should En glish capital gain control of all it is re ported to be after the people of tlie United States will soon be eating Eng lish bread, drinking English beer and wearing English clothes. An explosion occurred in an express car near Quebec a few days ago, which killed the express messenger and totally wrecked tlie car. The passenger coaches and sleepers were filled with people, among whom were some of the officials of the road, but none of them were in jured. Tlie explosion is a mystery. A young man by the name of Harry Beybold, teller of the Bank of Wheeling, has confessed to the taking of $27,000 in April last. He pretended that he had drawn a prize in the Louisiana lottery, but it did not work. It seems to be al most impossible for a person to do crookedness and not get caught at it. Nearly two millions of dollars contrib uted to the Johnstown flood sufferers still remains in the hands of Gov. Bea ver. The total cash contributions foot up to over $2,380,000. It was a great disaster and oaUtd for help from all over the nation, which was freely given, and it is to be hoped that it will be judicious ly distributed. Senator Paddock has sent word to Judge Groff asking that he come to Washington at once. It is taken as ev idence that tlie prospects are good for Judge Groff being appointed to the va cancy on the interstate commission. Such an appointment is greatly to be de Bred by the people of Nebraska, and all the western states. C. M. Hull, editor of the Boliver county Democrat, at Rosedate, Hiss., Waskilled by L. A. Wessinger, editor of the Review of that place. The tragedy grew out of a newspaper controversy. The murderer is in jail. The deed was a cowardly one, as the shot was fired Without warning, as the murdered man was returning from dinner. President Harrison recently sent a let ter to Lord Mayor of Dublin Sexton, thanking him for generous contributions to the Johnstown sufferers, and the lat ter declares that the envelope was tam pered with before reaching him. Post master General Wanamaker is investi- gating the matter and will probably make it interesting for the culprit should he be discovered. A scheme is proposed by some persons of a scientific turn of mind to move the Icelanders to Alaska. The plan is said to meet with the approval of many of the Icelanders and the details of the plan will be arranged and the matter placed before the people. It is said that the lava from the volcanoes have greatly re duced the limited amount of fertile land now in possession of the Icelanders, A short time ago a Canadian schooner was caught violating the laws in Ben rings sea and was promptly siezed by a revenue cutter belonging to the United 8tates and acting under orders issued in pursuance to a law passed just' before the close of Clevelands administration. The Canadians are furious over the mat ter but they will find that they cannot Muff the pnsent administration, no matter how fierce they try to look. If the United States has any rights it is safe to say that they will to protected by UwaaiiustraOoB, President Har Heosi and his cabinet do not intend to Mveaey fooiiciuBKf fttottt neb m- Postmaster Paul, of Milwaukee, has taken advantage of a little delay and handed in his resignation, thus saving himself tlie disgrace of being bounced. That was the cheapest way out of it The indications are good for tlie early completion of the Nicaragua canal. Portable buildings of all descriptions are being shipped from New York to Gray town and tlie workmen will soon be well housed. It will prove of vast impor tance to tlie shipping interests of tlie commercial world. The requisition for tlie extradition of Burke from Winnepeg has been granted and that now noted personage in the mysterious Cronin murder case is in Chicago. It is to be hoped that tlie au thorities will get at tlie facts in tlie mat ter and that the guilty jiarties will be brought to justice. A terrible fire occurred at Spokane Falls W, T., on Sunday afternoon and could not be subdued until it liad des troyed almost every building in tlie city. There are but meager reports, but a great many people are known to have lost their lives. Tlie property loss Is es timated at $6,000,000 and the total in surance at about $2,339,300. Elsewhere in this issue appears a re port of tlie people's convention held in Five Points precinct on Tuesday, Aug. 6th, 1889, at which a full ticket for the coming election was nominated. We do not know all of the men placed in nomi nation, but those whose aoquaintam-e we have formed are good men. Tlie re sult of tlie nominations must be (Willed at the polls in November. Tlie efforts made to secure a pardon for Cincinnati's notorious bank presi dent, E. L. Harper, now serving his term in the penitentiary, are not likely to succeed. Executive clemency has lieen invoked, but President Harrison will, in all probability, follow the recommenda tions of the attorney general, who is un derstood to be averse to allowing the bank wrecker to escape his just deserts. Tuesday's papers brought the an nouncement that on Monday the presi dent appointed W. 1L McCann, receiver, and T. F. Powers, register of the hind office at Chadron. This news will be received with pleasure all over the land district, for it has been a matter of much concern to the settlers that a change be made, as there appeared to be more de lay in tlie workings of the office than seemed necessary. The date has not yet been given when the change will take place, but it is to be hoped that it will soon. We have never met Mr. MeCann, but are informed that his appointment was Senator Paddock for assisting him two years ago last winter when he was elected senator, and he is said to be thoroughly competent to take charge of the business of the office. We have met Major Powers and believe his selection to be a good one. He is a staunch re publican and lias a good war record and is a good business man. It is safe to predict that the settlers will not be de layed in the future by papers being held an unnecessary length of time at the land office, and that the office will be conducted in a manner which will re flect credit on the republican adminis tration. The flopping over among the papers from the democratic to the republican side of the house goes merrily on in many parts of the country. It is to be hoped that they will be given plenty of time to prove that their conversion is thorough before they are taken into full membership as republicans. When a tough comes out and says he has re formed, the shrewd business man does not take him at his word and place him in possession of his business secrets and the keys to his cash drawer. He may wish to encourage the fellow in his self- reformation, so he places him in such a position that he can prove by honesty and faithful work that lie is sincere in bis endeavors to do right, and then, after a while, he is given positions of more trust and profit The same rule ought to apply to the work of parties. If man has been a democrat or a mug wump all along and now that the repub lican party is in favor he announces that he has experienced a change of heart and desires to be taken into the republican fold, it is not the proper thing to receive him with open arms and nominate him for the best office on tlie ticket Let him first prove that he will do to trust before he is put in possession of the con fldenoe of the party. Many of the farmers are asking daily if Sioux county is going to make an ex hibit at the state fair. All we can tell them is that we want to, but it is out of the question for us to do it all by our selves. If the farmers will bring in the stuff to exhibit and the people in general will put in a little money to defray the necessary expense of men going there to take charge of it and talk Sioux county to the thousands of people who will visit the fair, then is no question that a great amount of good can be done forth county and many settlers se cured. This is no one person's business but is to the interest of all, for every one who can be induced to become a res ident of fek county adds something to the value of the property of every on who is at that time a resident. V the fcswiataawMk!a of m ganizsitkin and m-lect some one to whom tliey will send rulucts and contribu tions, the undertaking will be a success. Tliere are plenty of thoe who are old residents of the county who could tike this matter in liand and look after it, and unless some one dues take hold of it the matter may as well be dropped. We should like very much to see Kioux county make a show at Lincoln, but un less some action is taken in Uie near fu ture it will be too late for tliis year. It is necessary for the secretary of the state board of agriculture to know tliat Sioux county will make an exhibit at least two weeks prior to September 6th, in order that he may prejiare for its ac commodation. Will some one take the matter in liand? Fl SAL PROOF NOTICES.
