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

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

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. ,

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
