What The County Clerh it required ts ao.
The laws of this State, in Chapter 103,
XIV, Sec. 18, provide as follows:
'The clerk of the Board of Supervisors
shall, at the close of each annual or special
meeting of the Board, cause a bnet state
ment of the proceedings thereof to be pub
lished in a newspaper published in the
county, in which shall be set forth the
name of every individual who shall have
had unv account, audited ana allowea Dy
said Board, and the amount of said claim
as allowed and amount claimed, ana also
their proceedings upon the equalization of
the assessment roll.
It will be observed that this law is man
dntory on the County Clerk. It does not
say he may do it, or that the Supervisors
man do it, but that the "'Clerk shall' etc.,
etc. It has been the practice in this coun
ty for the Board of Supervisors to make
some arrangement by which the proceed
ings could be published in all the papers,
in order that all the people may have ac
cess to the doings of the Board in the pa
per of their choice. The law does not re
quire this nor does it prohibit it and so
long as the Board could get all the papers
in the county to All the requirement of
the law without costing more than one pa
per would charge its customers generally
for such work, it was desirable that the
groceedings should be published in all the
At the June session of the Board Mr.
Bowles seemed determined to break up the
old arrangement and set the newspapers
to bidding aaain-t each other. We sug
gested to him that it would not be advisa
ble ; it would breed ill-feeling , would look
like an effort on the part of the Board to
compel people to take a paper which they
did not care for. and that the tax thus im
posed upon them would be an unnecessary
hardship. We urged upon him the fact
that the proceedings should be published
in all the papers and that the price then
charged was not one-half the usual rates
for such matter. And there the matter
dropped for that session.
At the July meeting be again revived
the subject and represented to us that
Sup'r Lobdell had a proposition ready to
submit, from the Review ; that only one
paper would be paid, and that one would
be the lowest bidder. Other Supervisors
said the same thing. Under this repre
sentation we made a proposal and as soon
as the proposals were opened (ours was
the lowest I Mr. Bowles went back ou his
owu proposition and made up a
report giving it to two papers,
and then th" Board went back
on the idea of one paper and give it to all
at our figures. The committee and others
i,eld out to us the idea of an exdurive right
hut torgot all al mt that idea as soon as
they got our proposition. Cnder these cir
eumstances Mr. Drake gave the Chairman
of the Board immediate notice that the
Niporvtsors having violated their own
proposition we wen released and should
not consider it binding upon us. Since
then there has been no agreement what
oyer, and, the t'lerk having ordered the
proceedings i previous to the last session
published in this paper we are legally en
titled to charge our usual rates for such
work 40 cents a line ; in which ease our
bill would l over five hundred dollars
At the last meeting we rendered a bill at
the old price -$'J5 a session not wishing
to take any advantage of the people on ac
count of the ill-judged action of the Board
But if we are compelled to appeal to ajury
t.i get our just dues we shall claim all the
law will allow u-.

i they pa.-sed an order that the Moline Re
' rieir was authorized to publish them for
$10 but adjourned without knowing
whether that paper would publish them
or not. If we can judge anything from
the tone of an article in the last issue of
the Review, that paper will not accept the
proposition of the Boanl. If not, then
the County Clerk will be authorized to pro
' cure their publication in any paper in the
County which he may select, and at such
price as may be demanded.

The Lincoln, Neb. .gas works exploded

before taking up one of the mains, near

a still day and the surrounding building?
covered with snow they were not at all en
