Baud Concert.
NotwithaUndiag the rata tliat fell on
Tuesday areiiiiig, Keller's Hall was crowd
ed before the time for the concert. The
tudimce waa well paid for its attendance,
aa the programme was carried out in full.
Canton can congratulate itself upon its
Band. It la composed of gentlemen who
hare spared no effort in preparing them
seirea with the latest and select pieces. It
requires more than ordinary patience and
labor to acquire the accomplishment the
Members have attained since their orgaai
zatlon. It is difficult to discriminate among
so many instruments, and particular/
when played in concert but two great es
•eolials in band playing wero evidenced
as haying been adhered to in the rehears
als, that is, 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 they have had together, this
defect se«ms to have been guarded against.
The solo played by the leader, Mr. ude,
would have done credit to some profession
al it is the 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
man, were admirably petsonated. If Me
nor had added the peculiar corporosity
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 Band
that will enable it to be maintained, and
to receive the appreciation their due.
A select party of dancers took possession
of ihe Hall at the clcse of the Concert, and
went their merry round until an early hour
of this morning.
On Thursday, the 13th inst, we were
slightly "shuk up,'" to use the language
of Pete Jones. We was engaged in con
versation with gentleman in our office,
in the upper floor of the Court House,
when the building commenced oscillating.
Th« vibration lasted for the period of
half minute, and to the extent that the
atove rattled loudly the book case that
rested against the wall tottered as if about
t» fall, and the ceiling cracked so that we
expected the building was yielding to a tre
mendous wind pressure. After the mo
tion ceased we looked into the atreet ex
pecting to aee cloud* of dust and a high
wind prevailing, but it was aa calm as
any summer day, and no sign of clouds or
storm. The Board of county commission
ers, wko were in session in the room im
mediately under us, did not observe any
thing unusual to disturb their equanimity
beyond the ordinary shock that the pre
sentation of some bill for audittng som«
times occasioned but the county Treasurer
Mr. Kay lor, and Oscar Rea, who were in
the lower room, occupied by the Treasurer,
fell the jar so plainly as ti break for the
hall, not ill rough tear, of course not, but
simply to see what was going on. Several
people in Canton and Beloit also felt the
jir, aid aoiue people who were com
ing into town heard a .rumbling noise
above that of their wagon, and felt the
tromble of the earth, while many both in
and ont of doors perceived nothing of the
shock. The Sioux City urnal contains
quite a ludicrous account of its etfecl
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 dignity and performed some
lively pedestrian feats in their exodus to
the street. At Ft. rtandal several shocks
#ere experienced that shook buildings
vioeully, aud tumbled over Indian tepees
also at Yankton Agency a number of
shocks occured that caused goods to fall
from the shelvea of the traders store, cre
ating considerable excitement among the
whites and Indians. Council Bluffs. Iowa
City, Worthington, Luverne and Omaha,
also were all more or leas jarred. At
North Piaite, Nebr., cases in the printing
office ware overturned,-and at Columbus,
the bells in the public buildings struck
as at "WTJ53u e®

A bill has been introduced in Congreaa
that provides far the eatablishment of a
savings bank by the government with ev
ery P. M. whose income from the post
office reaches |1,000 a year, provided ap
lication is made for Uiat purpose, Any
individual depositing, is to receive it per
cent interest when his deposits reach $25,
when placed subject to
days notice be
fore ohecking it out. It also provides for
the issuing of
bond in denominations
$25, $50, $100
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
tious that have become so numerous of
late. Security is ihe main thing demand
ed, and could the government be made the
custodian of the small earnings or saving*
of tho industrious and prudent, a sense of
security would prevail greater than the
present bmk 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 eftective for
th major business transactions, as if there
was a gold dollar re sting in the vault to
redeem it, and this was theYesult of confi
It is impossible iu the varied and enor
mous 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 truat, 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 cunt? to the dollar deposit
many a person has laid the foundation for
a fortune. The necessity for exchange aud
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 smail 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 well for all persons who were
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 tha Law are
as clear as mud, and so much so that a
person can choose the niaoner in which
he desires to follow in qualifying, provid
ed he ia willing to.chance it either way as
to which course would be legal One pro.
vision required the canvassing board, after
the completion of th* can«HS to make an
additional abstract of the vote cast for
township officers and file it with the town
clerk. This IMB not been don* in several
instances as we are informed by gentlemen
who were on the board of election, and iu
the new townships of course there was no
clerk with whom to file 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 couuty Board. Another section re
quires that bonds shall b* 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.
