TOUGH OX LAWYER BEXTLEY.
In the case of Patton vs. Mere, Attor
ney Bentley had the side bf the plaintiff,
and when through with his plea, Mr.
Patton. feeling that his attorney had
fallen far short of his duty or opportun
ity Baked the privilege of the court to
nlead his own case. Tne request was
greeted with a burst of laughter by the
audience present amid shouts of, "give
liim five dollars to plead it, Bentley." It
was indeed a pitjrto see an attorney in
such a plight and many were the sighs

Louis Peterson, who owns the north
west quarter of section two, town four
teen, range thirty-one, would like to
ascertain from the county commissioners
why they allow a graded public road to
have a fence across it at tho northwest
corner of his place, after being requested
to have it removed. The fence was built
across the road in order to save building
a half mile of fence by tho owner of the
land on the opposite side of tho road to
Mr. Peterson, and is a great inconven
ience to tho travelers along that
thoroughfare. Instead of opening tho
gate they tear down Mr. Peterson's wire
fence and drive around tho obstruction.
The matter should receive the prompt
attention of the commissioners.
An interesting trial was held before
Judge Snelling Monday and yesterday,
and was still in progress t hen The
Tisibune went to press. Some time ago
a Mrs. Loudon, who resided north of the
city, for some reason left her husband,
the latter retaining possession of a two
year old child. Several days later she
in company with a brother returned to
her husband's houso for tho purpose of
hauling away goods belonging to her,
and when about ready to start tho
brother picked up tho child and at
tempted to take it alone. Loudon de
manded that tho child bo given to him,
and as ho had blood in his eye, the de
mand was granted. Fearing that his
wife would take legal steps to gain pos
session of the child, Loudon secreted it
with some family whoso location ho re
fuses to divulge. Tho wife thereupon
issued a warrant for the arrest of Lou
don, charging him with .abduction or
child stealing. Tho outcome of the case
is hard to predict, but it is generally be
lieved the defendant will bo acquitted.
Can a man steal his own child, especially
when tho child has been in his posses
sion all its life?
The Republican meeting at tho
court house on Tuesday evening of last
week drew forth a fair crowd, the audi
ence portion of tho court room being
filled. M. A. Daugherty, candidate for
state senator, was the first speaker, and
stated his Ksition in an intelligent man
ner. Ho favors a stato appropriation
for the purpose ol making tests with
artesian wells for irrigating tho uplands
of this section of country, and tho en
actment of a law allowing tho local as
sessors to place a value on railroad prop
erty instead of the regular ten thousand
dollars a mile assessment throughout
the state, and if such a law should be
passed North Platte would receive con
siderable more revenuo from the railroad
and a consequence lessening of the
taxes on other property "would be tho
result Mr. Daugherty is eminently cor
rect in the statement that the alliance
idea of tho currency could cut no figure
in the senatorial contest, as that matter
belonged only to congress. Hon. A. H.
Long, of Omaha, talked on the tariff and
gave a good exposition of its benefits,
and also exploded some of tho Demo
cratic campaign buncombe. Hon. Geo.
H. Hastings, candidate for attorney
general, made tho closing speech, and a
good one it was, too. When Mr. Hast
ings had finished L. Stebbins took the
floor and attempted to make a speech
justifying the Democratic party, but "de
spite all efforts to hold tho crowd, he
was left talkinc to empty chairs. This
is an old trick of Mr. Stebbins', and the
audience dispersed out of sympathy for
him, not desiring that he should waste
his energy. Mr. Stebbins is quite an
old man and should reserve his vital
force. Geo. E. French presided as chair
man of the meeting, and the two or
three talks made by him were -well re
ceived, containing as they did some
truths. His remarks favoring Wesley
T. Wilcox for county attorney were es
pecially heartily cheered. Altogether
the meeting was fully as successful as

portunity of examining the water works
system and viewing the fire department
The water system used is the Holly
direct pressure and is first class, but the
fire department cannot be compared
with that of North Platte. The other
day they had a fire, and it- was fully
twenty-five minutes before the hose, teams
got to the scene, and then they found
that the flames had been subdued by a
bucket brigade. Mr. Klein still holds
the opinion along with The Tribune
that the North Platte fire department is
not surpassed by any volunteer depart

Walters, the chorus of which is unusally
harmonious. Mack Menter, tho German

A SAD AFFAIR.
A sad accident was that which befell
Richard Grace, Sr., and resulted in his
death. Last Wednesday afternoon Mr.
Grace, who was employed as one of the
car repairers at the Union Pacific shops
in this citv. was engaged repairing a car
on the repair track in the rear of, the
shops when tho switch engino with a
train of cars was oacKea onto me rttuiu
Mr. Rmco was ouite deaf and failed to
hear tho train and did not know that it
was coming until it struck, the car un
der which ho was at work. He at once
attempted to get out of his perilous
position, and in aoing so nau uuiu legs
mashed off by the wheels of the car
passing over "them about midway be
tween tho knees and tho body. The left
leg was also run over below the knee, tho
third and fourth fingers of tho right hand
were cut off, and tho right side of his
face badly bruised. Fellow workmen at
onco carried him into the carpenter shop
and Drs. Dick and Donaldson sent for.
Upon their arrival Mr. Grace was
removed to his homo in the
southwestern part of the city, where
at six o'clock that ovening ho "breathed
his last He was conscious to tho end,
and apparently suffered but little pain.
The obsequies occured Saturday fore
noon from St. Patrick's Catholic church,
Father Conway officiating. The con
course -which followed the remains to
tho cometary was very large, testifying
tho esteem in which he was held.
Mr. Grace had been in tho employ of
the Union Pacific in tho city for six
years in the capacity of watchman, and
was transferred to tho car repair de
partment but two days previous to the
fatal accident. For fifteen years he was
in the employ of tho company at Omaha,
and a number of his former associates
attended his funeral.
Mr. Grace was born in County Galway,
Ireland, and arrived in this country in
1810. He was sixty-nine years of age,
and leaves a wife and seven children, all

who signalled tho train to run onto tho
ropair track, and while of course ho did
not know that anyono was at work un
der the cars it was his duty to have in
vestigated the matter before giving tho
signal. Johnson was arrested Friday
afternoon and remained in jail until
Monday, when ho was given a prelimin

Gentlemen: in tne last issue oi uio
Current, the flannel-mouthed editor of
that .putrid shoel, gives mo spocial men
tion in connection with the coroner's
jury, of which I was foremamcmpanelled
to investigate tho causes which led to
tho sad death of Richard Grace, Sr. I
have neither the timo nor the inclina- j
tion to reply to the idiotic ravings of
"Granny" Mullane, the town gossip, fur
ther than to say that dogs bay at tho
moon, but tho pale-faced orb of night
glides peacefully forward, heeding not
the lunatic stare of tho measly curs that
howl as she moves gracefully onward;
and so tho coroner's jury in question,
and particularly tho foreman, cannot
afford to notice every whining whelp
which may snarl and snap at its super
iors. Mullane was requested to retire
from the jury room and he went, but
now he raves and snorts just as every
low-bred, buffoon does when forced to
quiLtlui. society of gentlemen. Out of
the abundance of the heart the mouth
speaks, and whenever tho Ajax of the
Current.opens that enormous aperture
which, with his gigantic ears, constitutes
his face, decent people stop aside, fear
ful of being bespattered and besmeared
by the stream of corruption which is
sues forth from so vitiating a fountain.
The readers of tho Current may confi
dently expect that there will be a rum
bling in the bowels of one of tho filthiest
pieces-of mother-earth ever known in
thiB city, and about next Saturday vol
came Mullane will vomit forth of the
nastiness, excrement and carrion with
which euch a carrion-crow as he, is usu
ally hlled. Verv truly
E. J. Newton has removed tho fence
surrounding his residence at tho corner
of Spruce and Third streets. If a great
many more fences throughout the city
wero romoved it would not only im
prove tho appearance of the town but
also of tho residences. North Platte has
the reputation of being one of tho neat
est towns in tho state, and a general
move in this direction would further ex
tend her reputation in that line.
On tho day of tho county Demo
cratic convention (?) in this city last
week a telegram was sent to tho con
vention from Wallace telling them by
all means not to nominate Hill for com
missioner, as ho was a rank prohibition
ist But he was nominated just tho
same -part of tho game, you know. Tho
Democratic platform is loud in denounc
ing prohibition, yet they nominate a
man who is an advocato of and believes
in cold water.
Tho meeting between tho allianco
and bankers held at Grant last Saturday
was without results. The allianco de
manded that the bank and money loan
ors extend their notes ono year at ten per
cent interest. There wero only two
bankers present and tho meeting ad
journed without coming to an under
standing. Tho money loaners were given
ten days longer to make up their minds
what to do. Wo understand that thoy
aro willing to grant tho extension, but
cannot let money out on chattels at ten
per cent Grant Sentinal.
