A very pretty wedding took place at
Aurora Thanksgiving day, at high noon,
when Charles T, Hamilton and Miss Jennie
Crosby were joined in holy wedlock by
Rev. Erst of the Lutheran Evangelical
church. The wedding was largely attended.
Mendelssohn's wedding march was played
by Miss Bertha Hamilton. The groom is
the son of Mr. and Mrs. R. B. Hamilton of
this city and a successful young railroad
man. His bride was a popular young lady
of Aurora. Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton arrived
in the c-itj h :r Tning and si'l comment-
housekeeping in their own heme in the
north part of the city.
The future of Alliance is just what the citizens of Alliance
elect to make it. Men aro the arbiters of their own destiny, and
what is true of men is equally true of cities, Alliance is fortu
nately situated in that it is the largest city in a radius of several
hundred miles and possessor of railroad facilities that offer splen
did advantages. The natural resources of this section of country
arc not such as lend encouragement to manufacturing industries,
although there aro a number of small manufactures that could
profitably be carried on here. But it is as a distributing point that
Alliance occupies a favorable field. Alliance should bo the cen
tral distributing poiut for all the vast amount of goods used in tho
country north, south and west of hero on the lines of tho Burling
ton road and the Elkhorn road that crosses the Burlington line.
Groceries, boots and shoes, harness, hardware, glass, hats and
caps, clothing, drug sundries, confectionery and tho hundred and
one articles of wholesale commerce should bo jobbed by Alliance
This is not a dream, fellow-citizens. Other towns with far
inferior facilities and location have built themselves up into strong
municipalities by seizing upori'overy advantage offered, no matter
how small it might seem. Tho first thing to do is to convince men
of capital that Alliance affords these opportunities. Tiiere are
many was of accomplishing this, but tho best and quickest way is
to organize a live board of trado and secure tho services of a sec
retary who knows his business, and knowing it has the industry
to work at it. Alliance has enough retail establishments to take
care of all the trado that exists now or may exist for several years
to come, but there is plenty of)Hnom for several wholesale estab
A city may be talked up, or it may be talked down. It is
civic pride and loyalty that made Chicago and Kansas City. A
Chicago man never misses an opportunity to boast of his city's
wonderful progress, and a Kansas City man talks about the vil
lage at the mouth of the Kaw ns long as he can find listeners,- and
even then he talks to himself.
Brethren and friends, let us begin talking for and about Alli
ance. Let us offer proof of our own confidence in tho future of
Alliance. Let us work for the future of the city and surrounding
country. And let us begin without further loss of time.

The football game between tho Chadron
academy team and Alliance high school
boys was not quite so evenly divided as to
theplays and other entertalnrrients Riyenlhonprsyas. one might have--jdshed, tho
by them; bu their master effort was put icoreat the finish of tfie last hahTbeing4
forth in the rendition of "Esther, the
Beautiful Queen" at the opera house last
Friday and Saturday evenings, and the
result was the best with one possible
exception, ever given by home talent.
All the leading parts were sung by those
having exceptionally good voices. Mr.
Bixler as the King of Persia, B. V. Reeve3
as Haman, Judge Spacht as Mordccai, and
S. M. Smyser as high priest not only sang
the parts to perfection but looked them
and acted them, too, The same also can
be said of Miss Frew as Esther, Miss Dun
can as Zeresh, Haman's wife. Miss Mc
Corkle as Mordecai's sister, and Mrs.
Fleming as the prophetess. Little Julia
Frankle as Ida, Haman's child, has doubt
less received more compliments than any
other player in the oratorio. She took her
part so artlessly and played it so naturally,
besides which, work well done in that line
by a child excites more admiration than
work equally well done by grown-up folk.
The chorusses of Jews, Persians and chil
dren showed careful training and selection
and the costuming was elegant. Most of
the costumes were made here, only the
royal robes and garments of that sort being
furnished by Mr. Bixler.
The opera house was well filled both
nights. About $185 was cleared and the
high school is therefore assured of being
the possessor of a piano in the near future.
The undertaking was Mr. A G. Bixler's
and that gentleman shows great ability in
selecting, arranging and training those re
quired for the cantata, more than sixty
being required for it. He was most ably
assisted in this by Superintendent Bartz,
to whose work in training and arrange
ment and as stage manager much of the
smoothness in the presentation was due.
We have been unable to get the names
of the children who assisted, bat among
those taking part were Messrs. Perry,
Ufford, Mnirhead, Morris, Duncan, Smy
ser, sr Smyter, jr., Englehorn, Hays,
McAllister, Constable, Fritts, Cantwell,
Madsen, Reeves, Spacht and Bixler;
Mesdames Stoner, Johnson, Quivey, Mor
ris, Hamilton, Fleming and Graham, and

llie Crete revvs says' An oilort is
being madtj to gat Bixby and Maupin for
an evening in Crete. If this is succossful
every one will want to hear them and tho
opera house will be, too small to hold the
audience. They are the only pair in Ne
braska. They ars equal to a full house
any time." Yea, Bro. Bcwlby, thay make
to o in favor of the visiting team. Our
boys have shown the "never-say-dio" spirit
about it and say they will keep on practic
ing until they make their friends proud of
them and their opponents afraid of them,
which is commedable, to be sure; but the
boys have not diagnosed thecal correctly.
The writer begs pardon for those words of
unsought advice and explanation. It is
not practice. It is added length of hair.
We don't pretend to know the reason but
it is a fact that a football player to amount
to shucks must have a head that, when he
is under full sail, look like an overgrown
Russian thistle. It may bo that the fero
cious appearance this gives him has some
thing to do with it. Anyway, there's
nothing like "Absalomic" locks for success
in mis game, raaueo pants, knee pro
tectors and skull crates are not in it with a
good shock of hair and just there is where
our boys fell down. They didn't have it

A special dispatch to the World-Herald,
November 26, says: Daniel C. Regan,
Burlington agent at Lead, and Miss Mary
Louise, daughter, of Mr. and Mrs. Richard
Blackstone of Central City, were married
at St. John's Episcopal church in Dead
wood today. The wedding was largely at
tended and was one of the most fashionable
held in Deadwood in years.
Owing to the prominence of the princi
pals a great deal of interest had been taken
and several anti-nuptial functions had been
held. They were married by Archdeacon
George G. Ware, and following the wed
ding a reception was held at the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Blackstone. The young
couple left for Denver, intending to spend
their honeymoon visiting various Colorado
points. Before their return they will go
as far as Sa.lt Lake City. They will re

For some time past rumors have bea
afloat that there would be a change of
postmasters in this city, and developments
this week have corroborated such rumors,
A "petition has been circulated among tho
business men of tho city by Mr. Tuttle,
partner of Mr. Tash, asking for the latter's
appointment. The Herald doc3 not know
what charges have been preferred against
Mr. Montgomery. Certain it is that his
fealty to tho republican party cannot be
questioned, as cannot that of Mr. Tash.
There are some republicans who would bo
pleased to sea Mr. Montgomery removed
because they say that the influence of

While an Alliance citizen stated publicly
last night that he had received word from
Omaha that Tosh was sure to bo appointed,
yot Tho Herald believes there is still time
for a big scrap. Mr, Tash has good sup
port and is probably holding "three aces,"
but Mr. Montgomery may yet flash up a
"full house" and retain his hold on tho
"jackpot." It matters very little to The
Herald who is postmaster, so long as the
official is capable, and wo ae not worry
ing over the outcome. However, if our
republican brethren will pardon a sugges
tion, we will say that in case neither Mr.
Montgomery or Mr. Tash are acceptable,
what's tho matter with looking around for
some other good man. There's Captain
Sweeney, Judge Wilcox, Al Wiker, Editor
Ellis, Smith P, Tuttle and a score of Other
republicans who might be persuaded to
sacrifico their personal business for the
public good. The Herald has only one
regret, viz: that it cannot create enough
olliccs for all the faithful republicans.
