the Commissioner of Immigration

men visit this city for the purpose
of investigating the conditions with
the object of locating a beet sugar

This morning these gentlemen,
accompanied by Colonel Cod,

investigations as necessary, one of
the gentlemen having had experi

manufacture of sugar in Hungan.

locating a factory a meeting of the
business men will be called for this
evening or to-morrow. At this
meeting the gentlemen will submit
a proposition, the exact nature of

writer other than that they will ask
no bonus, but will expect the peo

amount of stock in the factory, and
also use their efforts in havinir the

of beets to keep the factory running

Monday morning a
mg his name as S. J. Hoffman and
claiming to be a piano tuner called
at the Cody residence. Asking
Mrs. Cod- for the privilege of ex
amining her piano, it was granted,
and he pronounced the instrument
in very bad shape. He was told to
go to work and tune it. He worked
around it for several hours, pro
nounced the job complete and de
manded thirty-five dollars. This
Mrs. Cody regarded as exorbitant,
but rather than have a fuss, paid
the sum. Hoffman, on leaving the
house, told Mrs. Cody not to touch
the piano until the following day.
Along toward evening, however.
Irma ran her fingers over the keys
and was surprised to find that some
did not sound. A further examina
tion proved that Hoffman instead
of tuninr the instrument had
worked damage to it. Mrs. Cody
came down town immediately and
got out a warrant for Hoffman's
arrest. The sheriff found Hoffman
at the Pacific Hotel, and after some
parleying the latter refunded the
money. Hoffman insisted that the
piano would be all right in the
morning, and was told to call at the
Cody home in the forenoon and if the
instrument was in good condition
the money would be paid back to
him. This he promised to do. but
during Monday night he sailed for
greener fields. Hoffman is un
doubtedly a fraud, and his object
in requesting Mrs. Cody not to

THE FOLE Y-HOL.TR Y CASE.
The supremo court last week affirmed
the decision of Judge Church in the case
of T. J. Foley against. W. M. Holtry.
This case was tried before Judge Church
in the district court three years ago, and
the Judge gave a decision canceling the
contract and rescinding the deed to
proporty which had been traded for
stock in the North Platte Milling C.
and also gavo tho plaintiff a judgment
for SI .000.
This ends one of tho most vigorously
contested cases ever tried before the dis
trict court of Lincoln rounty. Several
month ago tho supreme court decided
this case on a technicality in favor of
Holtry, and it vas generally supposed
that the decision was final. A motion
for a rehearing was, however, granted,
and upon a re-submission of tho case the

On Sunday afternoon while several
young men Were shooting at a mark with
a revolver at McCullough's ranch, Jerry
Long was accidentally shot. It seems
that Jim McCullough had been loading
the revolver and was in the act of turn
ing around to hand the weapon to one
of the boys, when it was accidentally
discharged, the ball striking Long in
the center of the forehead and rsoging
back of the right eye.
The young man was conveyed to the
house and Doctors Irwin and Smith
summoned from Gothenburg. The
physicians were unable to locate tho ball
and it was decided to send Long to a
hospital at Omaha, where he could re
ceive the most skillful treatment.
The wound is a dangerous one and
there is doubt as to the young man's re
covery. J 8 might be expected, L'mg's

mitted last month, but was defeated by
a. very small margin. It is believed that
at tho coming election, which will be
held on tho 7th day of January, the
bonds will carry by tho required ma
jority. The ditch will be of benefit to
every farmer in tho precincts through
which it passes, and tho man who casts
a vote against it votes against his own

A LITTLE HISTORY.

Richland, Mich., Dc. 3d, 1S94.
Rev. J. C. Irwin, North Platti:, Neu.
At our Thanksgiving service
we took a collection for sufferers from
drought in Nebraska. Will you kindly
inform mo who is a suitable person to
whom tho money may bo eut for distri
bution and with it a barrel of clothing?
If you would kindly give mo tho facts
as to the general condition of tho people
in your section, I will be much interested
to receivo it. I think you must bo in

It may possibly interest you and somo
of your people to know that I preached
tho first sermon ever preached in your
town, holding the first religious service
and alio attending tho first funeral and
saw the first grave filled iu the cemetery.
This was in February, 1SG7. I was
then pastor at Black Hawk, Col. I took
the stage at Denver for the east and in
fifty hours reached North Platte, tiien
the terminus of the Union Pacific Rail
road. Tho track was blocked with

passengers five days, from Thursday till

On Sabbath a melodian was brought
from u house; 1 think the only melodian
in town; the car was filled and the peo
ple fathered around it, the doors being
opened. I held service, playing tho
melodian, leading the singing and using
the melodian for a pulpit. The next
day I was called to tho burial of the
first man who had died in the village
a laborer whose name I do no remember.
There were then 300 or 400 people at
North Platte, many of them being rail
road employes. The town was started a
few months before this. I note with
interest your church of 200 members and
over eighty additions last year. I
heartily rejoice in the work that has fol
lowed that simple service of many years
ago. Fraternally yours,

That is just exactly what's the matter with some of our would-bo competitors.
We've got 'em down, and very bad, too. and aro tramping the supreme stuffing out

WE ARE ON THE SOLID ROCK AND THERE TO STAY, while somo of our
would-be competitors aro on sinking sand and are slowly and gradually. but surely,
sinking away. They have mado their last great and mighty attempt to leap out
upon the top of that solid rock, but all in vain; they have fallen back back and aro

It having come to my ears that several
parties had been saying around town
that I. in connection with others, had
circulated certain rumors to the detri
ment of the North Platte National Bank
during the past two weeks, I tako this
method to denounce said statements as
absolutely false and without any found
ation whatover. I hereby chal.ango
any of the parties who have circulated
such lies to prove to me a single instance
wherein I have ever said a single word
against the North Platte National Bank
or any other business institution of the
city. I was informed on December 7th
that Herbert Evans told all the officers
andsevoral spectators in the froight do
pot that ho had information from one
individual that "Harrington had warned
Mrs. Cody to draw her money out of the
bank." As Mrs. Cody had never spoken
to me or any of my family or we to her
iu an way directly or indirectly regard
ing any bank, I immediately p oceedd
to run down the lie. Mrs. Cody and
myself drovo to the depot and while she
was denouncing to Evans the statement
as falso Chas. Brown, from whom Evans
said ho got his information, came in.
Upon demanding from him his source of
information, ho frankly admitted no ono
ever told him so, but that the story
sprang from his own vivid imagination
Now if there aro any more such reports
as the foregoing in circulation my
friends will confer upon me a great per
sonal favor by bringing thm to my no
tico at once that I may have a chanco
to run them down.
I admit having heard many serious
rumors afloat last week about tho bank
but did not have any lengthy conversa
tion or go into any of the details of the
rumors with any one excepting with an
old gentleman friend who spends a great
