Tho following item which may prove
of interest is taken from last Thursday's
Chicago Inter Ocean: "George Ster
ling was arraigned in the Tombs court,
Now York, on Tuesday as a suspicious
person. Ho was arrested by detectives
who saw him selling postage stamps on
tho Bowory. A bag containing 81,945.50
worth of stamps was found on his per
son. Tho Now York police think he is
mixed up in somo pnstaffico robber'.
Sterling says ho bought the stamps
from a man in Cincinnati." Postmaster
Wood was interviewed as to the above,
but was not disposed to unbosom him
self to our reporter (probably upon the
tho theory that newspapers are not much
aid in capturing criminals) further than
to state '.hat the above excorpt waB sub
stantially correct, However, it was sub
sequently learned that tho Now York
authorities had notified North Platto
officials of their action.

with excellent results. To tho fair

cient steam pressure readily obtainable
to operate iho pumps at something
approximating their capacity. It would
bo absurd to supposo that the water
works company could not now comply
with its contract after the pumping

Last Sunday morning Fred Sandall
was brought to this city from tho hospi
tal at Omaha where for several weeks hp.
had been undergoing medical treatment.
Tho physicians there in attendance pro
nounced his discaso as cancer of the
stomach, the same ailment which caused
tho death of J. L. McAllister. As in tho
case of tho latter the sufferer was noti
fied of tho hopelessness of his recovery.
On Tuesday afternoon at about 4 o'clock
tho victim succumbed to tho inevitable.
Tho deceased was born in Brakanbol.
Sweden, June 28th, 1861, and came tc
North Platto in 1S82. For several years
ho had been in the service of the Union
Pacific railway company, and was well
liked by his fellow employees. Ho was
married to Miss Edith Linborg in this
citv in 1SS9. Two children are the fruits
of this union. The deceased was a mem

organization tho funeral services will be
conducted to-morrow afternoon from the

community looses a good citizen and the
family a loving husband and father.

Tho B. of R. T. ball given by the
members of Platto River lodge No. 29
last Friday night was a brilliant success
in every sense of tho word. For several
weeks the members havo been making
preparations for the event which was
originally set for tho 22d inst, but as
that date falls within tho midst of the
lenten season, when piously disposed
people are accustomed to refrain from
wordly pleasures and devote themselves
to a season of penance and prayer, the
date was changed. The hall was more
beautifully decorated than it has ever
been before, the crowd present was just
sufficiently numerous for every one to
havo ample opportunity for thorough
enjoyment, and the music was excep
tionally fine. This last was a special
feature of tho programme that
was well appreciated by all. Prof. Bart-
ling's orchestra, of Grand Island, con
sisting of himself, B. J. Rogers, Samuel
Bevier, Henry Falldorf, Fritz and Henry
Becker, Doby, Frank Nusz, Prof.
Tschauder and Dick Niefeldt rendered a
musical programme prior to the com
mencement of dancing which has never
been surpassed by an amateur organiza
tion in this city. Taken as a whole the
members of the order gave an evening's
pleasure nto their friends which was
highly appreciated, and a repetition of
which will be demanded next year by a
pleasure loving public.

Tho revival meetings conducted by
Evangelist Nathan at Keith's hall aro
still in progress, but will close, we bo
liove, at tho end of this week. Very
successful havo the meetings proven in
snatching souls from the burning, tho
number of persons who havo stood up
for prayer and publicly renounced satan
numbering 160 up to last evening. If
one-half or one-third of this number
remain firm in tho good cause and we
trust they all will Mr. Nathan has cer
tainly performed a great and good work
for North Platte. Considerable talk was
created the latter part of tho week by
some allusions Mr. Nathan had made iu
regard to dancing and which reflected
discreditably to a very popular and most
estimable young lady of the city who
for several months past has been con
ducting ajdancing class. For this un-
seemly language rax. iarnun ls-jusuy
entitled to censure, and ho has certainly
received it. In truth if ho mado tho
remarks with which ho is credited ho
should make a public apology to tho
young lady. We have no reason to doubt
tho evangelist's sincerity of purpose, in
fact do not, but there is a certain tingo
of sensationalism in his sermons or
addresses which ho should divorce from
them. Sensational sermons may bo
appreciated by a small part of a large
audience, but on the whole they aro
productive of very little good. That
such sermons do not have a lasting effect
is proved in the case of Sam Jones, Sam
Small and others, who no longer draw
tho audiences they did formerly. Wo
uudorstaud soveral inquisitive individ
uals havo announced their intention of
looking up Mr. Nathan's antecedents,
but this will probably not result to the
evangelist's disadvantage. Sin-hardened
as ho is, tho editor of The Tribune is
glad to see this revival successful, and
would in no way retard its movement by
slurring Mr. Nathau and tho earnest
christians of the city who havo so nobly
aided him in the work.

room was kept warm; but yesterday
morning those who had any doubts at

death caused suspicious rumors of foul

thousands of acres of land that is today
worthless, if planted to alfalfa and irri
gated would be very valuable It would
be transformed into a rich grazing dis
trict, where herds of cattle and flocks of
sheep would roam at leisure, drinking
water from the pleasant lakes and feed-
ing upon the luxuriant grasses, wnere
today it is a barren waste, and the home
of the soap root and cactus.
The government, owning one-half of
this land, as well as the speculators who
own the balance and bought it for a song
and taxes, should make liberal donations
to a company that would complete such
an enterprise, as the value of their lands
would be greatly increased. While other
Btates are taking worthless desert and
mountainous lands, and by turning upon
it plenty of water taken from artificial
channels or canals fed from nature's own
sources, they havo made tho land worth
from 501o $500 per acre. Why can we
not do tho same?
Two hundred and fifty thousand dol
lars economically spent in building an
irngatirg canal through Lincoln, Daw
son and Buffalo counties would add
millions to its wealth each year. With
God's sunshine to warm mother earth
and the energy of the people living hero
this section of tho Platte valley would
be transformed into one of the richest
agricultural and manufacturing districts
in the world.
