SIXTEENTH YEAR McCOOK , RED WILLOW COUNTY , NEBRASKA , FRIDAY EVENING. MARCH 18 , 1898. NUMBER 44
The City Council.
There was a full board present at the
meeting of the city council , Monday
night. The following bills were allowed
and warrants ordered drawn for same on
the proper funds :
McCook Electric Light Co $85 oo
H. P. Waite 2 60
] . S. McBrayer , claim $17.75 , allowed -
. lowed at 4 oo
The treasurer's report was read and
placed on file.
A committee from the board of educa
tion was present and made a partial re
port of the condition of the finances of
the public schools. It was decided that
a similar committee would meet with
the council at its next regular meeting ,
when u full statement of the school's fi
nances will be offered , and a request will
be filed for the entire amount of money
derived from the issuance of saloon li
censes. Supt. Valentine thanked the
council for hearty cooperation with the
board and thanked the marshal for his
assistance in carrying out health regula
tions.
The request from the cemetery com
mittee that C. B. Rowell be appointed
sexton of Longview was granted and the
nomination of the mayor was confirmed.
The specifications for the proposed
new court house were read and compared
and the same were adopted and signed.
The protest of J. S. LeHew against the
appointment of C. II. Meeker as super
intendent of construction of the court
house was taken up and the same was
rejected.
The council then adjourned to Tuesday
afternoon at four o'clock to approve bond
of Contractor James McAdams.
At the adjourned session all were pres
ent except Councilman Perry. The bond
offered by James McAdams was duly ap
proved. The bond is in the sum. of
$5.000 , and A. Barnett and V. Franklin
are the sureties. Adjourned.
A War Measure.
A highly esteemed citizen objects to
the printing of certain patent medicine
advertisements which appear in THE
TRIBUNE , and the publisher grants the
"kick. " It is just and eminently proper.
When THE TRIBUNE was patronized at
home as it ought to be now , no foreign
advertisements found their way into our
columns , much less what might be in
any sense objectionable. But with the
meager advertising patronage given of
late years by the home merchants and
others , the sale of space to outsiders has
been necessary as a matter of self-preser
vation. It costs money to publish a
creditable newspaper.
Sudden Death of an Old Soldier.
David Keithley.an old soldier of South
McCook , passed away , last Sunday , after
an illness of not more than thirty min
utes. Heart disease was the cause. The
deceased was born in Pennsylvania sixty-
three years ago. He leaves a wife and
two children to mourn his death. Fu
neral services were conducted in the
South McCook Methodist church , Tues
day morning , by Elder H. H. Berry , who
was assisted by Rev. J.M.Bell , interment
in Longview cemetery following. THE
TRIBUNE tenders sympathy to the be
reaved ones.
A Series of Meetings.
The Christian church lias arranged to
hold a series of meetings at the usual
hours , beginning next Lord's Day morn
ing and evening , March 2Oth , to be con
ducted by the state evangelists , Lemon
and Travis.
For this occasion a large tabernacle
32 x 48 feet , has been erected just south
of the Baptist church. It will seat about
400 persons and will be well lighted and
heated. Everybody invited and wel
come. BY ORDER OF COMMITTEE.
A Fine Lecture.
The lecture by Chancellor W. F. Mc
Dowell of Denver in the Methodist
church , last Saturday night , was a splen
did effort , well worth the hearing , and
enjoyed by all who heard it. The some
\ \ what fanciful topic of the lecture was "To
day and Tomorrow , " and the thoughts
advanced on different lines and the hand j
ling of the ideas presented were effective
and able. The lecture was under Ep-
worthian auspices.
Poultry Meeting.
There will be a meeting of the Repub
lican valley poultry association in Odd
Fellows' hall over Ganschow's shoe store

An Harmonious Caucus.
A large number of men of one mind
attended and participated in the Repub
lican city caucus held in the city hall.
Monday evening , as per call made in
the Republican papers of the city , last
week , and the following proceedings
were had in a most harmonious spirit :
In the absence of Chairman C. I. Hall
of the city committee , J. A. Wilcox of
the committee called the caucus to order
and read the call. On motion of Ed.
Jordan , C. F. Babcock was made chair
man of caucus. He took the chair after
delivering a brief and pointed speech.
On motion of H. W. Cole , the editors of
the Republican papers of the city were
chosen secretaries of the caucus , and F.
M. Kimmell being present assumed the
duties of the office.
J. E. Kelley was placed in nomination
for mayor by H. H. Troth , and the nom
ination was made by acclamation.
Ray Hall placed C. I. Hall before the
caucus for clerk , and he was unanimous
ly chosen.
Dr. S. L. Green felt the inspiration of
the occasion. Felt good always to meet
in a Republican caucus and was glad to
see so many out. Said that a continu
ance of the wisdom thus far displayed in
nominations meant success. He placed
E. J. Wilcox before the caucus for treas
urer and the choice was made by accla
mation.
C. F. Babcock was placed in nomina
tion for police judge by Dr. S. L. Green.
Mr. Babcock declined the honor , but the
doctor suggested that it was not the rule
to decline and Mr. Babcock was unani
mously chosen.
J. A. Wilcox named C. N. Whittaker
for the office of engineer , and the nomi
nation was made by acclamation.
For members of the board of educa
tion , J.S. LeHew named E. H. Doau and
H. W. Cole named R. B. Archibald. Dr.
Greeu seconded the nomination of Mr.
Doan because he was not afraid to come
before a convention for a nomination.
Both nominations were made by accla
mation.
On motion of C. G. Coglizer the pres
ent city committee , consisting of Messrs.
C. I. Hall , J. A. Wilcox , R. B. Archibald ,
W. S. Perry and C. B. Gray , was con
tinued.
A division of the house was had and
nominations for members of city council
were made as follows :
In the first ward , H. H. Troth was
made chairman. G. S. Bishop named
L. W. McConnell for councilman and
the choice was made by acclamation.
The second ward voters called C. I.
Hall to the chair. Ed. Jordan placed
the name of W. S. Morlan before the
caucus and his selection for councilman
was made by acclamation.
The caucus then adjourned , having
finished the work of the evening without
incident within a half hour's time.
The important nominees of the ticket
are strong : J. E. Kelley for mayor in
sures the city a thoroughly business-like
administration ; and the nominations of
W. S. Morlan and L. W. McConnell for
councilmen are particularly strong. Both
are well-informed , careful and successful
men who will bring to the council wis
doru and experience. The nominations
of R. B. Archibald and E. H. Doan for
members of the board of education will
meet with large approval , as their ser
vices on the board in the past have been
satisfactory. As to the minor and cleri
cal nominees , they are all well qualified
for the positions for which they have
been selected. Victory doubtless awaits
the entire ticket.

went to McCook to the teachers' associa
tion , Saturday. They report a good at
