NORTH PLATTE, NEBRASKA,
is centrally situated in the triangular figure
lto-jnded by line? drawn from Omaha to Cheyenne,
thouce to Denver, from thence to etartins I'iut
It is 291 miles fiom the first named city, 225 miles
from the fec.md, and 280 miles from the third.
Having a population of 4,000 people it is the head
quarters of both freight and passenger divisions ol
the U. P. R'y Co., and is the home of about ."00
railway employes who'e monthly pay roll amounts
to -wane $33,000.00. Almost 200 miles of irrignti
oauals are rapidly neuring completion, which wi'
bring into the highest stato of cultivation 150,000
acres of the mo-t productive land upon which the
unV rays t-hine. The citizen-hip of North Platte
is that of the be-t afforded by the older states, and
her people are active, progressive and pro-perou.
To the industrious, energetic home-seeker from
the crowded east North Platto and Lincoln county
presents unusual advantagrs. Thousands of acre.
of vacant government land, in close proximity to
tho-e already beingbrought under irrigation, may
bo obtained by consulting tho United States laud
ullic' in North Platte. A letter of inquiry to "IT
S. Register, North Platte, Neb.," relative to the
above will Le courteously answered. Irrigated
farming is no longer nn experiment, but lias
reached the point where it is acknowledged a
pre-eminently tho safc.-t in all seasons method
of conducting ngricultur.il and horticultural oper
ations. The salubrious and life-giving climate' of
Lincoln couuty, where malaria is unknown and
when- pulmonary troubles are uuthought of, i
another incentive to the location therein of those
who are anxious to enjoy the good things of this
life as long as possible. North Platte rhurche
and schools are above tho-e of eastern communi
ties, the latter being one of the few in Nebraska
permitting the graduate thereof to enter the State
t.'niverMty without an intermediate preparatory
training. The people of the community gladly
welcome the honest, industrious eastern citizeu
who i- eagerto betterhis condition and assisting in
the upbuilding aud development of a comparatively
attitude we cannot, for the life of
us. see what concern it is to the
people of another state. He will
represent Nebraska's interests, and
incidentally those of Illinois. Pro
bably editor Medill's ill success in
trying" to break into the United
States senate has disagreed with
him and he will become a western
acrimonious Charlev Dana.

The Century Club, of New York,
is a grave and sedate body, but
once a year they turn up the gas
and have fun from wayback. They
have it on a stage, and in diverse
frivolous ways that amuse. The
screaming attraction this year was

Before Mr. Dam-
member, disguised as Dr. Park
hurst, came out and said: "Unless
this show is made more indecent it
must stop." Then a man who
imitated Anthony Comstock. climed
upon the stage, announced he was
Anthony Comstock, and that he
would not allow such a heartless
parody upon a minister of the gos
pel. The beauty of this disguise
was apparent when a member of
the club an old judge, showed that
he was completely taken in by the
good acting of the indignant Com
stock. He rose in his place in the
audience, declared that it was a
private club, could do what it
pleased, and wanted no suggestions
or rebukes from outsiders. The
indignant judge was soothed, Mr.
Damrosch sang his encore, and the
Resolutions seem to be a favorite
method at present of directing pub
lic attention to any matter by cer
tain members of the legislature.
One was introduced censurinr the
officials of Douirlas county for al-
lowiug George Smith, a negro, to

ago. After a rather an acrimoni

note the various changes of base
during- this discussion. It is need
less, perhaps, to say that the offi
cers at that time were democrats.

that regarding- congress taking ac

Jurti'e Gavnor's Decision In the Urook
lvn Trollev Mandamus Case.
OF WRECKAGE FOUND.
STRIKE NEARING- THE END.
Confcrcnec of Leaders Cnllitl to Discus
the Propriety or Culling It OA" Death
or Another Innocent Victim City
Brooklyn, J:iu. 24. Justice Gaynor
of the supreme court handed down his
decision on the application of Joseph
Loader for a mandamus to compel the
Brooklyn Heights railroad to operate it
cars iu sufficient numbers to accommo
date the traveling public on the Fulton
street, Putnam avenue, Greene and
Gates and tho Tompkins avenue lines.
He signifies his intention of granting a
mandamus, the fovni to be determined
on the argument of counsel in court to
morrow. Justice Gavnor's decision in part is as
follows: "It is my duty to declare the
law of this ease. This railroad corpora
tion is not in the position of a mere
private individual or company carrying
on business for private gain, which may
suspend business temporarily at pleas
ure. On tho contrary it has a dual rela
tion: a public relation to the people of tho
state and a private vote to its stockhold
ers. It must not bo forgotten here,
though it may seem to be growing, not
wholly forgotten elsewhere, that in its
chief aspect it is a public corporation
having duties to perform to the public
which transcend any obligation which
in its private aspect it owes to its stock
holders. It has received franchises of
great value from the state and had con
ferred upon it the state's transcendent
power of eminent domain. In return it
took up'in itself the performances of
public duties and functions in the per
formance of which it is in effect not an
independent individual or entirety but
the accountable agent, of the state.
"The duty of the company now before
the court is to carry passengers through
certain streets of Brooklyn and to fur
nish, man and operate cars enough to
fully accommodate the public. It may
not lawfully cease to perform that duty
for even one hour. The directors of a
private business company may, actuated
by private greed or motives of private
gain, stop business and refuse to em
ploy labor at till unless labor comes down
to their conditions, however distressing;
for such aro the existing legal, indus
trial and social conditions. But the di
rectors of a railroad corporation may not
do the like. They have duties to the
public to perform, and they must per
form them. If they cannot
get labor to perform such du
ties at what pay they offer,
then they must pay more and as much
as is necessary to get it. Likewise, if
the conditions in respect of hours or
otherwise which they impose repel labor,
they must adopt more lenient or just
conditions. Thoy may not stop their
cars for one hour, much less one week
or one year, thereby to bj.tt or coerce
the price or conditions of labor down to
the price or conditions they offer. For
them to do so would be a defiance of
law and of government, which becom
ing general would inevitably, by tho
force of example, lead to general dis
quiet, to the disintegration of the social
order and even the downfall of the gov
ernment itself. Experionco shows the
wisdom oi our fathers in retaining at
least some control of corporations to
whom are given public franchises for
the performance of public duties."'

writ of mandamus is issued, is a mer

Klcvcuth Day of the Tie-Up.
Fifty nonunion men left the Flushing
avenue stables this morning to open the
cross town line. The car was guarded
by policemen and the Eighth batallion.
At Greenpoint and Franklin avenues
the car was blocked by a frozen switch.
The first ear which left the stables was
held up at Franklin street and Green
point avenue by the strikers. It was
stopped and all the windows broken,
but the police used their clubs freely and
the car was taken through the mob. The
motorman was hit with a brick and
flying glass. No one else was injured.
At y o'clock a Court street car was
stoned at Hamilton and Court streets.
The mob was dispersed by the police.
The Atlantic avenue system was badly
crippled by the cutting of wires during
the niphr. On the Ninth avenue line
the wire was pulled down for about a
mile. On Seventh avenue it was also
pulled down for a long distance, and on
Twentieth street the wire was cut in
Thomas Kearney, the roofer who was
shot on a house top by si militiaman in
Hickory stret t yesterday, is dead.
At strike headquarters today it is tho
general opinion that the big strike had
about ran its course. The strikers
seemed despondent. There will be a
conference of the leaders this afternoon.
It is said that the meeting will discuss
the propriety of calling off tho strike.
the Mi.in;r Steamer Chicora Xt
jLonscr In Doubt.
Chicago, Jan. -1. A large piece o:
the bulwark of tho missing Graham &
Morton propeller Chicora was found
floating in the lake "today, about fiv
miles south of North Haven. One oi
the proprietors of tho missiug boat ot.
learning of the discovery said that it in
dicated to him that the boat is still
afloat. If she had gone down, lit
thought, the wreckage would have sunli
with her, but the piece of bulwark nidi
cated that the steamer was still afloat
though badly damaged. Other marine
men, however, were of the opinion thai
the boat had been lost with its 2G people
Buxton Harbor, Mich., Jan. 2-1. A
steamer 's hull, prolnbly that of the
Chicora, was seen floating off Glei:
Haven, 20 miles north, at noon today
Chicago, Jan. 24. Late this af ternoot
a message was received from Captain
Graham, one of the boat's owners, say
ing that the Chicora is lost with all or.
board. The message was received bj
Andrew Crawford, one of the
Chicago owners of the steamer. II
was from St. Joseph, Mich., and read
"Chicora lost beyond doubt, with af
hands." Mr. Crawford said that Cap
tain Graham had undoubtedly received
positive proof of the boat's loss some
time this afternoon.
Santa Fe Receivers In Denver.
Denver. Jan. 24. J. J. McCook, one
of the receivers of the Atchison, To
peka and Sauta Fe, arrived in Denvei

Western division and representatives ol
the English bondholders of tho Colo
rado Midland. Since the gold discover

English bondholders has leen attracted

Sl'gaiu-vn'd, Jan. 24. A bold robbery
of the railway and express oflice here
has roused the town. A band of masked
men rode to tho office and demanded of
Agent Wyams the safe's contents. After
a severe beating Wyams opened the
safe and the robber.-) took $1,501) in cash.
A number of citizens undertook to in
tercept the robbers. A sharp battle took
place, but the highwaymen escaped to
the Brazos swamps. A posse started iu
pursuit and returned with four men
under arrest Crane, Thompson, Denton
aud Flowers. The posse is still scour
ing the country for others.
It.'inrilers Hud Narrow Escapes.
Chicago, Jan. 24. The fashionable
8-story boarding house of Ira T. Wilson
on Michigan avenue wa gritted by fira
this morning and many of the boarders
narrowly escaped deth. The 40 people
in the house were still abed. The pe
pie were talcn from the top story by
firemen and two women were earned
out unconscious from the smoke, but
none were seriously injured. All the
furniture of tho landlord and the private

Minneapolis, .Ian. 24. Seven of the
jury in the Hayward murder trial have
now ben secured, two luore men being
sworn in tins morning in the persons of
Farmers John Kimball and Neil Mac-

City of Mexico, Jan. 24. With the
immense demonstration ot students m
this capital, the war feeling throughout
this republic has been wrought up to a
high pitch. Reports from many interior
points show a rising spirit of patriotism
among the majority of the people, aud
it is probable that other great popular
uprisings will occur in many of the
cities of this country.
Don Emilio de Leon, Guatemalan
minister to Mexico, was outside his
hotel when tho recent students' pro
cession was moving, and had an ex
cellent opportunity of viewing the feel
ings of the Mexican people on the inter
national boundary dispute and the firm
stand taken by Mexico. A full report of
the proceedings was sent by tho Guate
malan representative to President Bar
rios at Guatemala, aud it is said to have
created a profound impression in gov
ernment circles. This city is quiet and
orderly, although the effects of tho
patriotic storm are easily discernable.
The volunteer movement is rapidly
spreading, and it. would evidently bo
possible to raise 2.1,000 volunteers in
this city alone within a day or two, if
the general government only indicated
its need for assistance.
A telegram from Guatemala says that
the Spanish minister in Madrid will not
interfere in any way to pacify the
question with Mexico. The indications
aro that Barrios, president of Guate
mala, expects aid from Spain, on ac
count of his bold stand.

Massing Troops on tho Frontier.
Comitan, Mex., Jan. 24. The govern
ment has pushed fresh forces into tho
Guatemalan frontier almost daily and
camp quarters for a large body of men
have been arranged for near this place.
A few Guatemalans living in this vicin- j
ltv have quietly left for their uativ
county and others who are disgusted
with the course of President Barrios
and the Guatemalan administration
nave tied to Mexico ratner man ue
pressed into an unwilling service. Re
ports from the otner side of the border
are that Guatemala is using every effort
to work up feelings of patriotism among
the people in hopes of gaining large re
inforcements to continue the bluff
against Mexico. When persuasion fails,
it is givt n out, that when the govern
ment needs men it will press them into
service. Nearly every horse for 100
miles from the border has been secured
by one means or another. Tlie uncom
municative policy of the Guatemalan
government is having a disastrous effect
on the public order and many alarms
are constantly ft It by the residents of
the frontier, fearing invasion of the
