The McDonald State Bank.
Charles McDonald. President; W. H.
McDonald, vice-president and cashier;
J. B. McDonald, N. V. Roynolds, direc
tors; capital $100,000, surplus nnd un
divided profits, $27,000.
This is tho oldest bank in the county,
latinjjfrom tho pioneer Hays of '76, and
it has always enjoyed a viRorou.,
healthy growth. Tho wealth and varied
resoures behind tho McDonald atato
bank would bring strength and confi
dence to any banking institution large
or small, and tho strong, guiding per
sonality of its president, Charles Mc
Donald is tha oldest living inhabitant
of this county and his reputation, years
ago established, for sound judgement
And thorough reliability, has been a
potent factor in tho success of the in-
Htitution. Fully meeting the needs of
, its patrons, its record has been clean
ana progressive; tho interests 0 the
depositors havo always been safely
guarded, and as the put has been pro
ductive and prosperous, the future pro
mists an increased measuro of success,
tha result of the application ef sound
ethics, and the conservative, aBle con
duct of the bank in tho past. This bank
has always provided the right kind of
banking facilities for the pooplo of
North Platto and tho tributary terri
tory; up to date methods characterise
this institution and every legitimate ac
commodation is extended patrons. The
McDonalds have particihated in the
-varying fortunes and vicissitudes of
frontier days and all came out winners.
Common sense, logical business ideas
have predominated in all its operations
and success has been earned by merit
alone. The McDonalds are intimately
familiar with the needs of the country
and fully conversant with the attitude
that the institution should assume in
dealing with the public and patrons.
The most approved safety appliances
that modern talent havo devised are in
use in this bank to effectually safe
guard the interests of depositors and
tho re is nothing lacking a solid, well
managed, up to date bank should havo
in a community of this size. Tho his
tory of this bank and the McDonalds
aro part of the history of North Platte
and no family are more respected or
command greater influence. Their
wealth hus been used for the benefit
and advancement of our town and
. county as banks cannot prosper unless
the community also gets ahead.
Mr. Charles McDonald though well
along in years Is active nnd enterprising
.in daily attendance at these banking
rooms, and good no doubt, we all hope,
for many more years of honorable, use
Banks of this character add much to
the stability and commercial interests
of a town and the McDonalds are al
ways foremost in all worthy undertak
ings to move our town and county
still further ahead on the road of con
jervative progress andbusino.1 s solidity.
Mr. McDonald, we would note, has
been in this part of tho country since
'00 and is therefore a pioneer of the
pioneers arid our patriarch n3 well. In
addition to his largo banking, property
and land interests in our county, he is
a heavy stockholder in the Continental
National of Chicago, the second largest
bank in the country, nnd he is also in
terested in other banking institutions.
The Continental National is now
building the largest and finest banking
house in the world.
Mr. W. H. McDonald is in active
charge of the bank here and has been
for some years. He organized and is
president of the Bank of Stapleton,
formerly the Bsnk of Gandv, and also
organized and is president of the. Bank
of Maxwell, being the largest stock
holder in both institutions. He is one
of the leading bank cashiers in our
state, is widely known, and is a strong

J. G. BEELER.
Tho science of law as a study and
the practical application of it principles
to the various business affairs of life
demand of the members of tho legal
profession tho highest faulitics
posiosied by man. Attorneys, there
fore constitute the leading intellectual
elomeht in a community and in com
menting on the bar of Lincoln county,
we wish to say wo generally speaking
have a strong, forceful, liighmindeu
body of men appearing in our courts
who can be safely entrusted with the
most important litigation.
Many weighty cases originate hero
and clients are secure indeed whan their
interests ara confined to our lawyers.
Mt. Beeler is one of the leaders of
the bar in this nart of the state and he
has long since established a reputation
as an ablo counselor, excellent c itzien,
and a gentlemen who always stands
for high ideals in private and profos
sionalllfc. No man works harder for a client and
though always endavoring to effect an
honorable, satisfactory settlement so
aa to avoid useless litigation, he is very
effective in court or before a jury once
the issues are joined.
Mr. Beeler has held various impor
tant positions since casting his lot with
us twenty-two years ago including we
might say city attorney, three terms;
county attorney, two terms; and has
served twelve years on the board of
education, giving freely of his valuable
time and best efforts for all worthy,
well considered efforts to advance the
best intereses of North Platte and her
Mr. Beeler was one of the organiz
ers and is now a heavy stockholder of
the t'latte Valley state lianK of whicn
we write in another column. The suc
cess of this institution has been marked
Indeed, and increasing business shows
that there was ample room for this
beneficient enterprise in North Platte.
We touch lightly on this gentleman's
honorable and successful career in our
community as ho is so well known that
extended mention would 00 superfluous.
Suffice it is easy to say that no man
ranks higher and as liberal enterpris
ing citizen, worthy, energotic public of
ficial, and keen, forceful, brainy law
yer, he merits all tho good things we
can say of him.
Mr. Beeler is one of the busiest men
Lincoln county but never too busy to be
courteous and accomodating to nil with
whbm'ho comes in contact, whether
friend or ctranger.
And when there is any undertaking
on foot to help our town and county,
Mr. Beeler is always n booster and a

Residence Damaged by Fire.
Fire Saturday nf ternoon caused a loss
of at least $1,200 to tho W. T. Banks'
residence in tho southwest part of
town and to the furnishings- The firs
originated in the attic nnd had burned
through the roof before discovered by a
neighbor who turned in an alarm.
Mrs. Banks, who was the sole occupant
of the house at the time, had laid down
for a nap, and had no knowledge of the
fire until notified by the neighbor. The
run was a long one for tho hose team
and by the time tho house was reached
the flames had gained considerable
headway, but with two streams the
flames were quickly subdued. The in
terior of the house was pretty Well
deluged with water, causing consider
able damage to ceilings. The greater
part of the furniture was removed.
The fire was confined to the attic and
the second floor.

"YOUR BOSOM FRIEND."
A Pictorial Review.
The greater part of this issue of Tho
Tribune is given over to North Platte's
business men, together with illustra
tions of business houses nnd individuals.
Ignatius Murphy, a highly educated
man, a fluent writer and one who has
traveled in many foroign lands, con
cluded to spend a two months vacation
in North Platte, and a a mere matter
of pastime, concluded to do a littlo
nowspapar work in tho way of writing
up North Platte nnd its business mon.
In order to give this feature tho widest
publicity he purchased space in The
Tribune, and his work is presented to
our readers today.
In an interview in tho Bee Senator
Hoaginnd. of this city, denies that ho
is a candidate for Congressman Kin
kaid's place, nnd also denies that he
ever said the things about Uncle Moso
that some of the papers have credited
him with laying, "I am not opposed to
Congressman Kinkaid"' said Senator
HoBglend, "and neither am I a candi
date for congress. Congressman Kin
kaid has done mora for his district than
has any congressman in Nebraska done
for any other district. I never said the
things abotit Mr. Kinkaid that the
papers have quoted me aa saying."

last evening for Kearney to be the
