In our article on our "Financial Conditions," in the issue of January 17, we made the statement that Oregon had the only bank in Holt or Atchison coun ties, that did not have any borrowed or rediscounted money. Since looking over it, we see that we were in error, as there is one bank, in Mound City, that does not have any borrowed or rediscounted money. Platte City has invested in a rock crusher that will make from 75 to 100 perch of macadam per day. We believe it would be n good investment for Ore gon to do likewise, and when fellows are sent up it- will be the means of furnishing them employment to pay their fines, besides, the streets around the public square would in time become macadamized. The Brookfield Gazette last week gave a very extensive review ot the as sessment of Linn county for 189C taxes, and according to this report, tbe aver age assessed value of the lands in Linn county is only 87.1(5 per acre, whereas the average value of Holt county lands is 11.50.

Ex. Of course the sun will melt snow off the sidewalks, but it takes con siderable time occasionally to do it; we believe, however, it would be more com fortably for pedestrians it property hol ders would clean their sidewalks, in the time and manner provided for by our city laws but then we have a class in every community that can violate such laws with impugnity, and we suppose we will always have them, but they should be made to obey the law just tho same. There is much dissatisfaction in the new freight charges on live stock, recently put into operation at Kansas City. The weighing of each ear before unloading it, causing much delay and jolting nnd jarring the stock at the yery time when they should be handle! :ently, at the end ot a long ride. A movement is on foot to see what can be done to relieve the country shippers and if possible get the railroads to re turn to tbe old and well tried system ot charging freight by the car. From the Norcatur Nebraska Regis ter, published by H. H. Hoskins.we learn ot the death of his son, Oliver D., who was engaged with bis father, H. II. Hos kins, in tbe publication of the Forest City Sun, which was afterward removed here and changed to tbe Holt County Republican. He died January 23, 1890, nged 25 years, 11 months and 21 days. O.

Tho Westboro Wave says that Judge Anthony is being talked of among some ot tne raitniui to matte tne Democratic race for congress, and thinks that Atchison county should be given the honor of funishing tbe candidate. We are of the opinion that the Wave is within shootin' range, because Platte, Buchanan, Andrew and Nodaway have all been honored with the congressional nomination, and why not Atchison, when it has such statesman who are pining for a job ns Ross Miles, L. D. Ramsey, Jno. Hunt, Doc Postlewait, John Christen and Tom timmert. Judge Phillips of the United States District court for the western district of Missouri has issued an order direct ing the United States Commissioners to to issue no more warrants for parties charged with the illegal selling of whiskv. T'je evidence will be first collected and presented to the United States graud jury. The order has for its purpose the curtailing of criminal costs. It establishes a precedent that rnuv well be followed in theory in tbe state courts. Many useless proceedings am instituted in justices' courts seme times without a scintilla ot evidence. The burden of criminal costs in Missouri must be reduced in some way. nnil h nrnhlnm will confront tbe Re Dublican legislature to be elected thisitrain. St Joseph Herald, Wednesday, fall. K. G.
