Taaaday tTeaing, Kellrr's Hall wa« crowd
ed before the time for the concert. The
audimce wa* well oaid for its attendance,
aa tha programme was carried out iu full.
Caaton can congratulate itself upon its
Band. It is composed of gentlemen who
have spared no effort in preparing them
selves with the latest and select pieces. It
requires mora than ordinary patience and
labor to acquire the accomplishment the
members have attained since tbeir organi
tatlon. It is difficult to discriminate among
so many instruments, and particular/
whan played in concert but two great es
•eotiais in band playing wero evidenced
aa having baea adliared to in the rehears
als, that la, time and harmony. It is not
an unusual occurrence and particularly
with amateurs to pay more attention to
getting aloud blast from their instrument,
regardless of melody or time or relation
to other associate instruments but for the
brief practice thfy have had together, this
defect seems to have been guarded against,
The solo played by the leader, Mr. uda,
would have done credit to some profession
al it is tha execution of such pieces that
show the skill and prove the musician.
-'Sarah neighed," "Dame Darden" and
"Character Song," were well rendered,
and the American, Irishman, and Dutch

that follows lager, his personation would
have been complete. The whole entertain
ment was attractive and interesting we
trust sufficient encouragement will be given
the members ot the Canton Cornet Rand
that will enable it to be maintained, and
to receive the appreciation their due.
select party of dancers took possession
of the Hall at the clcse of the Concert, and
went their merry round until an early hour
of this morning.
On Thursday, the 15th iast, we were
slightly "shuk up," to use the language
of Pete Jones. We was engaged in con
versation with a gentleman in our office,
in the upper floor of the Court House,
when the building commenced oscillating.
The vibration lasted for the period of
half a minute, and to the extent that the
stove rattled loudly the book case that
rested against the wall tottered as if about
te fall, and the ceiling cracked so that we
expected the building waa yielding to a tre
mendous wind pressure. Alter the mo
tion ceased we looked into the street ex
pecting to see cloud* of dust and a high
wind prevailing, but it was as calm as
any summer day, and no sign of clouds or
storm. The iard of county commission
era. wbo were in session in ilia room im
mediately under us, did not observe any
thing nnusual to disturb their equanimity
beyond the ordinary shock that the pre
sentation of some bill for auditing somt
times occasioned but the county Treasurer
llr. Nay
lor, and Oscar Rea, wbo were ia
the lower room, occupied by the Treasurer,
felt the jar so plainly as l~ break for the
hall, not through tear, of course not, but
simply to see what was going on. Several
people in Canton and Beloit also felt the
aad souie people who were coin
ing into town heard a .rumbling noise
above that of their wagon, and felt the
tremble of the earth, while many both in
and ont of doors "perceived nothing of the
shock. The Sioux City urnal contaius
quite a ludicrous account of its effect
there. Court was in session, but a suddeu
suspension of proceedings followed, with
out formality of an adjournment. Law
yers, suitors, Jurors, and the Judge, for
got their diguity and performed some
lively pedestrian feats in their exodus to
the street. At Ft. Kandal several shocks
#ere experienced that shook buildings
vioeuily, aud tumbled over laiiaa tepees
also at Yankton Agency a number of
shocks occured that eaused goods to fall
from the shelves of the traders store, cre
ating considerable excitement among the
whites and Indians. Council Bluffs, Iowa
City, Worthlngton, Luverne and Omaha,
also were all more or less jarred. At
North Piatte, Nebr., cases in the printing
office were overturned,-and at Columbus,
the belle in the public buildings struck.
Prom a summary of the reports, it was

Government Postal
A bill has been introduced in Congress
that provides for the establishment of a
savings bank by the government with ev
ery P. U. whose income from the post
office reaches $1,000 a year, provided ap
iication is made for that purpose. Any
individual depositing, Is to receive per
cent interest wiien his deposits reach |23,
when placed subject to 90 days notice be
fore ohecking it out. It also provides for
the issuing of 3.05 bond in denominations
of f25, |30, $100 and $200, which would
not only prove convenient, but safe invest
ment for the savings of persons of moder
ate means.
This bill has really many commendable
features, and should it become a law, would
doubtless become a measure of relief, from
the hardships that have heretofore occur
red from the failure of the savings institu
lions that have become so numerous of
late. Security is the main thing demand
ed, and could the government be made the
custodian of the small earnings or saving*
of the industrious and prudeut, a sense of
security would prevail greater than the
present btnk system now causes.
One objection arises as to the policy of
the government becoming involved in the
increased responsibility that the institu
tion of many banks would occcasion.
But Secretary Chase when necessity re
quired, made the government a banker,
and proved to the. world, any promise to
pay, even was as effective for
th major business transactions, as if there
was a gold dollar re sting in the vault to
redeem it, and this was theTesult of confi
It is impossible in the varied and enor
mom money transactions that arise in a
nation of such vast resources and wealth
to conveniently and appropriately conduct
its business without some head center,
some place of trust, some depository other
than that of the owners own person, not
only for the safety ot person and life, but
for aiding in accumulations in saving. It
is human nature to yield more readily
to the temptation to buy what might be
dispensed with, if one carries his money
about his person, and this fact is what has
induced the thousands of individuals to
patronize ban King institutions.
From the ten cents to the dollar deposit
many a person has laid the foundation for
a fortune. The necessity for exchange and
accomodation to borrowers also has, and
will cause the maintenance of at least
banks for exchange and deposit, should
banks of Issue be abolished.
Confidence must and will be placed
somewhere, but could the above mentioned
bill or its equivalent be framed into a law,
and Uncle Sam to be made the banker for
those of small means, it would not only
prove a secure and safe medium, but it
would foster and cncourage a disposition
to save the dimes that are more often spent
foolishly than through necessity.

Township Officers.
It wil be wsll for all
elected to any of the Township offices to
inform themse lyes as far as possible ss to
the provisions of the law relative to their
qualifying. Some portions of the Law are
as clear as mud, and so much so that a
person can choose the manner in which
he desires to follow in qualifying, provid
ed he is willing to.chance it either way as
to which course would be legal One pro
vision required the canvassing board, after
the completion of the canvass to make an
additional abstract of the vote cast for
township officers and file it with the town
clerk. This has not been done in several
instances as we are informed by gentlemen
who were on the board of election, and in
the new townships of course there waa no
clerk with whom to tile the abstract.—
Again one section provides that persons
elected shall file oath and Bond with a
certain County officer, and to be approved
by the county Board. Another section re
quires that bonds shall be approved by the
chairman ot town board which would be
proper and legal inust be ascertained by
the parties interested and some embarrass
ment might be saved by a prompt attend
ance to the matter.
