The fire in our neighboring

John McMahou recently did a
piece of nice detective work. S. D.
Finch, alias J. O. Grout, absconded
from Aldcn, la., with about $1200 ot
somebody ele's money, and, it was
supposed, came to Nebraska. John
had a postal card giving particulars,
and was on the lookout; fiually, he
had a slight clue, and by a little in
quiry and some personal inspection
he found his man under a different
name on a homestead west of Oak
dale. He was playing honest gran
ger. Of course John put him ou the
right road, and he will probably go
where he belongs-outside the pales
of civilized society, and within the
walls ot a penitentiary.

of men throwing the carcasses of

too, of those that have died of dis

era. If Shell creek was a stream
used only for agricultural and man
ufacturing purposes, this practice
would not be especially injurious,
but, on nearly all farms along its
margin, the cattle, horses, hogs aud
sheep are accustomed to get their
daily supply ol water, and it is very
important that that supply should he

John Harris has invented a ma
chine for rope-making that promises
to be a grand success. S. T. Hill is
preparing a neat model to show the
beauty of the invention. It takes
the strands, twists aud stretches
them, and winds the rope on a spool
ready for the market. The machine,
for use, will :ot about 2fi5. and its
capacity is estimated by Mr. Harris
at a ton a day, $200 worth of rope, at
wholesale rates. He estimates Ihe
entire cost of building and other
machinery necessary to carry on the.
business would he $3,000. and is de
sirous of forming a company here.
There is a wonderful amount of
rope used iu Ibis country. There is
also a large quantity of flax straw
that is now going to waste, that
could be utilized. The culture of
flax is already profitable for the seed
alone, and it an enterprise of this
kind could be put ou foot here, we
would not only have better ropes
than we now have, but the growth ol
flax would become a money making
business. Mr. Harris is a practical
rope maker of many years experi
ence, is evidently an honest man, aud
we hope he may succeed iu securing
stockholders enough to make his
project a success.

The organization of this society
was completed last Friday evening
at a meeting of the lawyers at the
otfice of W. S. Geer, Enq. .
The object of this organization is
to maintain among its members a
high klaudard of professional integ
rity among the members of the bar
generally; to encourage a thorough
and liberal education, Ihe acquisi
tion of a law library, and the due
administration of Justice to all
classes of society without distinc
tion. Certainly no higher or more ex
alted purpose could be desired. The
law of professional deportment and
etiquette was declared to be the rule
of action of every member. AVe are
satisfied that the Columbus I:ir As
sociation is second to none iu central
Nebraska, aud that it may justly lay
claim to legal talent aud ability
equal to any county bar association
in the State. The charier members
arc as follows: Chas. A. Speice, M.
Whitmoyer, W. S. (Jeer, Lcander
Gerrard, A. M. Po?t, John G. Hig
gins, George G. Itowmau, M. K.
Turner, Ityrou Millett, Messrs. Cor
nelius & Sullivan, Stephen McAllis

The first annual meeting will be
held ou the second Tuesday of next

As intimations of what our Slatr
needs in legislation can do no harm.
I would suggest that one of our
greatest needs at the present time is
railroad legislation. While we be
lieve in strict justice, "and will not
grumble if more is conceded to
them,'' we do not certainly believe
it proper that the industries of Ne
braska should bear the euonnors
and cruel rates on freight and travel,
at the present time levied.
As railroads increase iu the differ
ent counties and bonds arc cheer
fully voted, iu anticipation of com
peting lines, so do tho rates on our
railroads increase, and those who so
emphatically dreamed of cheapci
rales, by competing lines, waked up
to find them pooled.
Freight rates are higher now in
this county than ever, and we believe
they also are iu Platte, and it seems
to us thai if the people of Nebraska
do not soon wake up lo the emer
gency of the case, and by legislation
compel a stoppage of the cruel ex
tortion as practiced by our railroads
they had better quit fanning, and
let the Slate again become "the
desert," as of old.
No industry can possibly bear,
and assuredly farming cannot, the
rates taken by these public carriers
And, Mr. Turner, we do sincere!)

If the legislature this winter shall
fail to relieve the people from this
oppression, I venture the predic
tion that, the one which will assem
ble in 18S3 will he not quite so solid
republican as the present one.
I desire to call atteulion to the
fact that a convention of farmers and
shippers has been called to meet at
Lincoln January 5th, 1881, for the
purpose of organizing the "Nebraska
State Farmers' Alliance," and for
the further purpose of impressing on
the legislators the necessity for im
mediate relief from railroad oppres
sion. All Granges, Farmers Clubs,
Farmers' Alliances and kindred as
sociations are invited to send dele
gates. Platte county has several Granges
and Farmers' Clubs. Do they pro
pose to ho represented? I hope so.
Platte county ought to be represent
