Bj Way of aa Introduotion
The Tribune with this issue in
troduces an innovation in North
Platte newspaper work. For some
time, at the request of many of its
patrons, has this step been contem
plated; and at last yielding to the
solicitations of these friends, to
whom the weekly visits of the paper
have proven a gentle tonic in the
assimilation of life's cares, have
their hopes been realized. In order
to make the semi-weekly edition
attain the excellent standing ac
quired by The Tribune in time
past it is necessary that our friends
extend to the paper all the aid and
encouragement possible both fin
ancial and otherwise. If you know
of an interesting item of news, or
possess an odd dollar with which to
lubricate the machinery, do not hesi
tate to give into the confiding care
of the editor either the one or the

as a business enterprise to more
frequently present than heretofore
the manifold advantages of North
Platte and Lincoln county for the
investment of capital. In close con
test for local aggrandizement The
Semi-Weekly Tribune will be a
faithful Joshua who will zealously
fight out your battles, providing you
render the same assistance that was
' given this military man of a former
generation. nThe neat, well printed,
wideawake, newsy publication is the
best index otthe thrift and prosper
ity of a community. TVill you make
this venture such an one by afford
ing it the greatest possible patron
age? With our vast irrigation en
terprises rapidly approximating
completion there are vast possibili
ties in store for North Platte and
Lincoln county, and there is no rea
son why this locality may not be
come the most permanently profit
able community in the state of Ne
braska. The editions of the paper will be
on Tuesday and Friday evenings
of each week; the. rate of subscrip
tion will be 75 cents per annum for
either issue, or S1.25 per year for
both. Now is the time to subscribe,
or settle the old score. The gentle
manly collector will .pass around
among its congregation, and to him
you can give your contribution.
Extending toward our friends and
patrons all the usual compliments
of the season, and believing that
the years to come will prove more
prosperous than the one just closed,
we will subside by wishing you, all
a Happy Ne w Yar.
Five hundred thousand apple trees
will be planted" in Nebraska next
spring. The planting of fruit trees
advances the value of the land.
This seems to be a subject the Ne
braska farmer and liorticulturalist
understands. The price of apples is
always high enough to guarantee
profit to the fruit grower, hence, be
sides the enhanced value of his
land, the man who plants an orch
ard does so with the knowledge
that his labor in planting and culti
vating his fruit will brine him a
handsome return. When this great
Mississippi valley is planted in orch
ards then can it be said that it is
the secod Garden of Eden.' It will
prove a'joy to look pon, a -source
of profit to cultivate, and a paradise
to live in. Kansas City Times.

They say that while it is possible that

Among those unaccounted for are the

DAMAGED STEAM EttS ARRIVING.
Sblapias Havlar a Rough Time With At
St. Johns, N. F., Dec. 51. Two
damaged steamers a'rrived here. The
first was the Boston City from London,
Dec. 15, for Halifax. She reports a
fearful experience since leaving port.
The steamship only had a light cargo of
about bOO tons and she rolled terribly
when the seas were heavy. She exper
ienced the worst gale of her pass ago yes
terday forenoon when about 130 miles
from here. Her spare propeller broke
adrift, tore up her deck and crashed
through the starboard side. Then when
sh rolled to port the propeller careened
across the deck and drove through the
port side. The seas rushed in through
these two holes at a fearful rate and it
was feared that the steamship would
sink. But thanks to her steam pumps
the Boston City managed to keep above
water until she made this port.
The other damaged steamer arriving
today was the British steamship Lord
O Neill, Captain Ferris, from Baltimore,
on Dec. 10 for Dublin, which has put in
short of coal. The Lord O'Neill tried to
make this port last week bnt contrary
gales drove her 20(J miles off the coast
and she then tried to continue her voy
age across the Atlantic. She was com
pelled to abandon the attempt on account
of the strong contrary winds which pre
vailed. The Lord O'Neill will ship 250
tons of coal here. Her deck, bulwarks
and stanchions are damaged by the seas,
which constantly .swept her decks, and
her crew was utterly exhausted when
this port was made.

being one degree colder than the temper

lowest since 1&15. The orange and veg

best estimate places - the number of
oranges at present on the trees at fully
2,600,000 boxes and the officials of the
Florida Fruit exchange in this city think
fully 3,000,000 boxes have been frozen
either in whole or in part. If this esti

boxes will bring fabnlous prices. These

Senator Carey is a candidate for re

Both are residents ot Cheyenne. Early

San Francisco, Dec. 31 .The chance

the clause depriving of a share in the es

slight. He also resents the placing in
