North Platte Gels Convention.
Thanks to tho hustling ability of
Secretary Temple of the Chamber of
Commerce, Attorney Jnme3 Keofe,
Chief Sandall, of the fire department,
and tho dozen or more members of tho
department who attended tho fire
laddies' convention nt Kearney this
week, North Platte secures tho state
convention for 1913, winning out over
Hastings and Columbus, which were
competitors. From the time tho North
Platte delegates reached Kearney Tues
day morning until tho close of the con
vention last evening, everybody knew
North Platte was ''on tho map"; thoro
was not a minuto that the "city be
tween the Piattes" was not in evidence.
They took the Midway city by storm,
and the breeze never cinsed until the
1913 convention was safely in the hip
pocket of their jeans. It was another
demonstration of tho "go after and get
it" spirit of North Platte; they stormed
the citadel of opposition and won out
whereat wo are glad.
The securing of this convention is a
big thing for North Platte. It means
that one yoar hence 500 men who pro
tect property from the insatiable greed
of tho fire elements, will visit us and
remain with us for three days, and who
will prove to us that they are all halo
fellows well met.
In advnnce Tho Tribune assures those
who attend the 1913 convention that a
warm welcome awaits them and that
balloons will bo sent up every minute
of tho day and night.
