Hie duct of the then chairman of the water works eommiltee, and in which they say they have exa mined all the papers and accounts and find them correct in every particular. Also that the charge of his being interested with the contractors, is without foundation. I protested against the adoption of the report, because the committee had not examined all the facts in the case.

1 made a statement that claims for supplies had been allowed and ordered paid by the city before the goods were furnished by the contractors and stand ready to produce proofs ot the tacts as stated in the charge. Mr. True when questioned by myself admitted that the committee had not made an investigation of this charge against the ex- chairman of the water works committee. Whv?

The regiment was organized at Kurt Leavenworth in the fall of IStifi.sent under the command of (icn. Custer up the Kepuuliean alley ami served in the western part of the state and iu the Indian Territory from the time of its organization until 1S71, when it wan sent south on Ku-klux duty.

There it remained until 1M73 when it was sent to Dakota where it has served ever Mince. During the time it has been closely identified witli the devel opment of Dakota, aiding in the starting of the railroad engines 01 me i ine in 1M7S, in the opening of the Black Hills in 1S74. and imrticiimtimr in the we known operations against the hostile Indians under Hitting Hull, which culminated in the massacre of the brave and heroic Gen. Custer and his little hand of five troops of this regiment at the Little Big Horn, June 1870. In 1877 the regiment was in the Bar Paw Mountain battles.

In 1878 they returned to the Black Hills again and established Fort Mead, which has ever since been their headquarters. The regiment is now commanded by Gen. James V. Forsyth, as Colonel. His fine physique, white hair and moustache and imperial military bearing make him the imaL'e of a French Field Marshall.

He Berved through the war as confidential stafl' ofheer to Gen. Sheridan and has now been selected to command the new Cavalry school at Fort Kiley, over the heads of many men his senior in rank, but not in ability. The appearance of men and horses does not exhibit those evidences of fatigue that might be expected after this march of over U00 miles, with heavy rainfalls on an average of every three days.

I have decided to make an ohVr to the district schools ot Davis county for the pres ent school year, trusting that the result will verity my anticipations. 1 will hold a public written examination on the last Saturday of May, 1HSS, at Junction City, in the following branches: Read-inKt penmanship, orthography, arithmetic, KnglUh grammar, geography, I'nited Stales history, United States constitution, physiology and composition. 1 otler the prizes named below To the scholar milking tlit host et'iuTiil nverairi 81 5 To lie scholar making 2nd bent $vuvrt avenge- Jti To the scholar limiting 3rd best general average To' all scholars making an average of 7U per cent, or better, not falling below (U per cent in any one branch, a neat common school diploma.

T. S. Harkin, County Superintendent. Under the head of "Where is Bradford we find the following in the Abilene Reflector Hank Crawford lias bought the old BIs- saloon, nnd the first thing he did was to put a new board walk in trout of it. ict ion City I'siox.

roin the flip way in which George Washington Martin speaks of Henry R. Crawford, one of the leading men of Junction t-ity, person would naturally think that if it has got to be "Hank" Crawford, the "saloon" must mean something besides harmless soda pop, ginger ale and malt. We think it rather hard on Henry but George gets reckless at the change of nearly every moon. The Bismarck saloon was one of the old landmarks of Junction City before the blessed days of prohibition, it was kept bv a character named Matt lieekers. Its history would make a volume, but, praise the Lord, in consequence of our reform efforts, aided by the zealous and impetuous Hank-Crawford, it is now on agricultural implement warehouse, a feed mill, coal headquarters, and the demon rum has been banished a long ways off.

Praise the Lord We read yesterday's Abilene Gazette the announcement that Professor Purdv will locate in Abilene if sufficient encouragement be given him, at the same time speaking in the highest terms of him, calling him the best educated musician in the state." The Gazette cannot speak too highly of Profes sor i-uruy as an accomplished musician and efficient instructor. Typhoid malaria continues to do Uh work on Lyon 8 creek.
