IT in computed that the driving c the last ttpikc on the Northern Pacif railroad cost $23,000 worth of driuki blcs and cigars. Republican is out in a editorial assorting that the dismissal < Paul Vandervdort was a cowardly ac' ' Is this the beginning of war ? THE Anti-Monopolifete met in stat convention at Grand Island , last Thur : day , and endorsed the democratic non inee , James W. Savage of Omaha , fc the Supreme Court. THE State Journal of Sunday las stated that "the hog cholera has broke out among the farmers on Long Island. The State Journal seems to have diag nosed the case fearlessly , if not accui ately. THE Seventeenth Annual State Fai opened at Omaha on Tuesday , with larger display of exhibits , and a greate number of attendants than on any prio occasions. The indications were tha the fair .would be an unparallelled sue cess. JUDGE NORVALL passed sentence 01 Steve Benficld , convicted of manslaugh tcr , Saturday evening , at Grand Island He gave him the full extent of the lav ten years athard labor , but not soli tary confinement. The } oung man i ; more unfortunate than bad. THE acquittal of Frank Jaincs a Kansas City , last Thursday , is anothe : instance in which the free use of mono defeats justice. There can be no ques tion but that Frank James is a desper ado of the deepest dye , and deserves al the punishment the law allows , yet , it his first trial , he is by some hocus pocus acquitted. THE skeleton of a woman , discovered on a sand bar in the Piatte river , three miles west of North Bend , the 30th oi August last , was fully identified this week as the remains of Mrs. Margaretta Tongmann , who was drowned i-cai Li rand Island in the Piatte last May , while she was trying to rescue a man from the fate that overtook her. SITTING BULL had arranged with the managers of the Iowa state fair to be in attendance at the exposition but at the last moment went back on his word and failed to show up. Yillard's party is responsible for the great chief's disre garding his engagement. So man } ' dis tinguished men in his section of country , bo whom he could sell his photographs caused Sitting Bull to forget all about liis Iowa engagement. SOME few days since , a war between 3hina and France seemed imminentbut , ate dispatches indicate that the casus jelli will be amicably settled , and a * reat deal of unnecessary blood-shed jbviated Imagine a battle ground with : he French drawn up in battle array on mu sidf , and the Chinese on the other , md you will readily see that a war be- iweeu these nations would be ridiculous n the extreme. THK town of Marion , Alabama , has L colored Republican postmaster. A 'ew days ago , some of his white breth- en who wanted his office for one of heir own color , withdrew from his bond r'th a view of having him removed. But s he had made a good postmaster , some irominent Democrats , unwilling to s-ee dm treated in that way , made a bender or him amounting to § 08,000 , and he etains the office. IT is announced from Chicago that he postal note system , which wt-nt" nto operation on the first of the month , s proving somewhat of a failure , chiyf- y owing to the fact that there are nu- icrous mistakes made in filling them tit As a consequence , banks refuse o receive them , and other parties , who ave beeu placed to a good deal of rouble and inconvenience , are inclined t > find mui-h fault. There has been a ad beginning all around , and unless here shall be a radical improvement ram this time forward it is quite evlr cut the postal notes'must go. LETtheelectorB of thiiT county n member wK'n they attend the prim ; nan , and convention , that what thecoui ty wants and requires is honest , rcliabli efficient officers ; officers that nnt enl have the qualifications necessary fc their several positions , but who als will conduct the affairs and look aftt the interests of the county economical ! and justly. Men are prone to be inflt enced by partisan zeal , or personal prcj udice , or preference , but under preHCii circumptances , they should consider th crude state of politics in this county and cast their influence , not for th partisan or friend , but for the candidat who is the best qualified to perform th functions of the office to which he at pires. We believe that merit shoul always be recognized and rewarded , an if among the candidates for the severs offices , there are men who have servci the county honestly and well , it woul be but justice that they should receiv the appreciation of the people by th further endorsement of their services If there are those who lack the abilitj or whose characters are such as to ere ate suspicions as to their probity , the < should be cast aside and better mei nominated. THE formal opening of the Northeri Pacific road for traffic and travel mark the completion of an important 'enter prise that effects the entire country and especially the northwest. Then are now five lines that connect the Pa cific stales with the ea t , at suitabli distances from each other. These wil make the competition much sharpe : than heretofore. The Northern Pacific will undoubtedly take much of tin travel and trade , and force the others t < reduce their rates to honest figures , But the greatest benefit will be th ( building up of the cuuntiy. Thousand : of homes will be brought near to markci and the settlers will flock into the coun try it traverses by the thousands. Tluu empires of wealth will be erected outoi what now are but empires of wastes. Mr. Yillard. who is the head center ol the Northern Pacific , is just now the central railroad figure. He is almost lionized in fact. His recent trip ovei the road was a continuous grand ova tion , of which he may well feel proud. The people arc right in duly honoring the man who brings to their country such a blessing as a railroad. Ex. Nebraska to the Front. From all the reports which had reached me I expected to find a very line crop of all kinds of grain growing here , and after going over the state , I find that 1 had not set my esti mate liigh enough. There is no denying the tact that to-day Nebraska has the best jrops of all kinds of any state in the Union. H er wheat crop is simply im- uense ; the acreage is large , the straw s just the right length , the heads are arge and well tilled'and , the berry is if excellent quality. On every hand ire hundreds of self-binders throwing he golden sheaves. Yesterday I took . long ride of forty miles through the iountry in a carriage , and during the eng vide did not see a poor crop of ; rain where it had been proper ! } * put n and cultivated. Nebraska is to-day fathering a harvest which is worth nore than the out-put of all the irecious metals of the mines of Colo- ado. From official returns I find that istycar there were 1,040,907 acres of rheat , the acreage of this year is much irgcr , but if it be the same , and the rep will average the lowest estimate or the entire state , which is twenty ushels per acre. This will bring irgc amounts of capital to the state nd relieve the farmers very much , as lany of them are in straightened cir- umstanccs , for this state is pre-emi- ently the poor man's home , and was titled by a band of homesteaders who ad but little or no capital , bufc their illing hands and strong , brave hearts , nd these are the men who have made titious bud and blossom like the rose , here are no great land kings here , no umcnse farms covering entire town- lips , crowding out the poor man and ueping out the school houses , etc. , ke there arc iu Minnesota aud Dako- Great as is the amountof7hcr grai crops , her stock interests arc nine greater and will bring to the ntat much more wealth. From the t tat Auditor I find the following is the n turn or stock assessed ia the state fc the year 1882 : Horses , 532,032 ; cattle , 815,03c mules 31,314 ; sheep , 373,057 ; hogs 811 049. When it is known that not half f h stock is assessed in the great gtock n gions , it is safe to say that the liv stock is worth $100,000,000. A ! these things combine to give the stat the great boom which she uows enjoys The oat crop is the heaviest ever raise here and there will be over 7,000,00 bushels to ship out of the state afte keeping enough for home use. No bet ter corn crop ever grew than is noi setting cars in this state. A larg amount of it will be fed to stock. The low price of range cattle wil keep many back , and these will b brought here and ripened for the inar keton corn. The outlook now is tha more cattle will be fed here than eve before , and that is as it should be With its large corn crop , mild winter and pure , bracing atmosphere , Nebras ka should be the great feeding state o the Union. The crop of hogs will hi the largest ever shipped from the state and they will be fully matured. Ii going over the country you no longei see the long-nosed , razor backed hog : of a few years ago , but the plum } Berkshire , the large round and slcel Poland-China and the beautiful Cheste : whites , though the latter are nol sought after much , have taken thcii place. The slab-sided , raw-boned cat tie are passing away , aud the beautifu short-Lorn and white-faced Hereford ! are taking their place. Corresponded of Drovers Journal.
