Memorial services were held at the home of the late F. M. Dorrington at 3 o'clock last Saturday afternoon conducted by Rev. H. P. V. Dogue of the First Presby terian church. Rev". Bogue did not speak at length concerning Captain Dorrington, saying that his character and career were to well known and had been fully and ap propriately spoken of by the public press to need many words from himi but he spoke earnestly of the example then brought to us of the uncertainty of life and the necessity for being prepared at all times to render it up to the Giver and spoke words of comfort to the sorrowing family. That evening the body was taken to the depot by the pall bearers, Messrs. R. M. Hampton, J. P. Reardon, J. N. Andrews, E. P. Sweeney, J. H. Hewitt and I E. Task, all of whom had long been fast friends to the deceased. A large number of the members of the A. O. U. W. accompanied them. J. H. Hewitt went with Mrs. Dorrington and her daughter, Mrs. A. A. Record of Hyannis, on the sad journey to Falls City where the body was laid to rest in the Dorrington family vault. The funeral party returned to Alliance Wednesday. A Prosperous und Hospitable City. Harrison Press-Journal: On our recent visit to Alliance we were very much pleased with this hustling and bustling little city of the northwest, and her people are of the true western type, full of congeniality and hospitality. It was our pleasure to meet the representative men of this city, and receive the hearty welcome that is extended to all visitors. We had the pleasure of meeting Hons. W. K. Akers and F. M. Dorrington, register and receiver of the United States land of fice, and found them very affable gentle men, and we are sure the government offi cials made no mistake in retaining these gentlemen to look after its interests. We also had the pleasure of visiting the high school under the supervision of city Supt. Bartzand found everything in excellent condition. Our next visit was with the genial quill pusher of the Alliance Herald one of the most popular papers in the northwest and here we found a hearty welcome for the few minutes we had to stay, and taking it all around Alliance is one of the most prosperous and hospitable cities of the northwest.

MURDERER SHOT Al Turner Who Sliot und Instantly Killed William Ihinlnp Ills Employer nt l.cntl, S. I)., Is Itun Down nt Alliance. SHOT THROUGH THE NECK Hy W. Sllvcrdollar Who Pollowcd the I'll- githe rrom Dcudwood--InJury Not Considered I'ntnl. Excitement ran high in Alliance yester day about eleven o'clock when a' shot was heard in the alley immediately east of Cor nell's saloon and a man was discovered with a bullet wound in his neck and three strangers close by. The facts in the case as near as can be traced are as follows Allen Turner, aged about 28 years, a Texan, who shot and killed a man at Lead City last Tuesday, and who escaped, com ing to Alliance, was followed by two young men, V. and L. W. Silverdollar, purport ing to be brothers. Upon their arrival here they located their man and not hav ing any firearms went to the Feather res taurant and asked Mr. Feather for the loau of a revolver. This they secured by showing Mr. Feather a printed description of Turner and an order for his arrest signed by the sheriff of Deadwood. They then went to Cornell's saloon and found Turner and in company with a Mr. Welsh, another stranger to Alliance people, fol lowed him to an outhouse in the alley. No one but the three above named were present when the shooting took place, but they assert that Welsh, upon opening the closet door was confronted by Turner who was immediately ordered by one of the Silvcrdollar's to throw up his hands. Tur ner responded by reaching for his gun whereupon Silverdollar shot him the bullet entering the neck just below the right of the chin and ranging downward lodged in the left breast, the exact location of which has not yet been discovered. He was ta ken to Dr. Moore's office where he was given medical attention and later remdved to the Fox lodging house where he now lies in a serious but not necessarily dan gerous condition. The Silverdollars and Welsh are being held here to await the re sult of Turner's injury. Sheriff Fred Doten of Deadwood came down on the midnight train last night and returned this morning stating he would remove Turner to Lead as soon as he was in condition to be taken. Sheriff Doten made the state ment that the Silverdollars were not offi cers and that no reward had been offered for Turner's capture which necessarily places the boys in a peculiar positon. They have been and are Mill somewhat reticent about giving information or show ing credentials as officers, or their right to thus act. The true state of facts are un obtainable at this hour and the writer has learned nothing which would justify a further account. Tin; i.andoitice ri:gisti:k.siiii. Senators .Millard and Dietrich Recom mend Jlruce Wilcox for the IMacc. There is no occasion for alarm that a vacancy will remain in the United States land office on account of the death of Cap tain Dorrington. Already there are six candidates "in sight" and probably as many more in the eastern part of the state who are pulling wires. James H. H. Hewett, and Bruce Wilcox of Alliance, W. H. Fanning of Crawford; Col. W. H. Mc Cann, Ex-Senator W. H. Reynolds, and J. L, Paul, Chadron: W. B, McQueen, Hay Springs; or W. W. Wood, Rushville, would accept the place. Later Press dispatches today state that Senators Millard and Dielrich joined in a letter to Secretary Hiichcock recom mending Judge Bruce Wilcox of Alliance to be register of the United States land office. While it makes no difference to The Herald who receives the appoint ment it can truthfully say that the action of the senators has the same effect on the republicans of Alliance ns the flying of a red cloth has in front ot a bull. They de clare that Sup't Phelan is responsible for the deal and that he was getting in his work before the body of Captain Dorring ton had grown cold. Dozens of protests have already been forwarded to Washing ton. Judge Hewett was endorsed by Postmaster-elect Task, the county committee and the old soldiers: But pshaw! what do they amount to? They're small pota toes compared with Mr. Phelan. Judge Wilcox didn't need their endorsement. And while they're changing why wouldn't it be a good idea to remove Captain Akers and nominate Mr. Broome for receiver? Mrs. Riste T. Lucas, formerly Mrs. Craig of this city, died at her home in Loveland, Colo., January 29. About three months ago her only child, a boy of four teen, died and grief for him is said to have been the cause of her death. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H C. Richards of South Alliance, who with her sisters and brothers went to Loveland to attend the funeral services. The many friends of Mrs. Lucas in this city sympathize deeply with the sorrowing relatives. She leaves besides her parents, her husband, three sisters and two brothers.

Jack said he did not get to see the other copy regularly hence wanted one for himself. The liquor and gambling cases which occupied so much attention at the late term of court have called out two kinds of talk one view being that the enforcement of tho law was a wholesome aud gratifying achievement; while the other lays particu lar stress upon exponsiveness of the prose cutions and holds that if the affair was re duced to a loss nnd gain account the credit side would require a red ink entry to produce a balance Expenses ran up to between 51,800 and $2,000.

IthoJCH Slips on Ice .Monday Af ternoon nnd Dies tu l'ii Hours -Internum nt Kciuuey, A very sudden death occurred here Monday evening, tha dead man being Mr, Rhodes, who slipped on the ice and fell about 2 '30 o'clock that afternoon while down town nnd died that night about 10 o'clock from the injuries received, the fall causing the rupture of a blood vessel in the brain. Thomas Jefferson Rhodes was born in Madison county, Indiana, July 21, 1826, and died in Alliance, Neb., February 2, 1903. At the age of eighteen he moved to Brown county, Illinois, where at the ago age of twenty-one he married Miss Lovinia O'Neil. In 187O ho came to Kearney county, Nebraska, where he resided until July, 1902, when ho came to Alliance to make his home with his daughter, Mrs. Cora Basje. Ho was a veteran of the Mexican war. He leaves three sons and three daughters. Mr. Rhodes was a strong, hearty man and had it not been for his un fortunate accident might have lived many years Funeral scrvicos were held at the Basye home Tuesday afternoon at 4 o'clock, con ducted by Rev. M.L. Sanders, Mr. Rhodes having been a lifelong member of the Methodist church. The body was taken ' to Mindcn that night for interment. a 1 i;i.rriiTLAT'iv i; !:. Wns AiTChted hy Sheriff nt Dcmcr, hut rould Not He Held null tho'Wnr rnnt from Illinois Arrived. The latest information concerning Ar thur Chelf, the bigamist, is to the effect that he was held one day by the sheriff at Denver but as no warrant had reached Denver from Illinois the sheriff could hold him no longer. Sheriff Reed received a letter this week from the father of Miss Harold in Illinois stating that a warrant had been issued nnd that an effort would be made to locate Chelf and punish him to the extent his atrocious crime deserves. TAI.r.NT IS KKCOGNI.i:i. .MIsh Wllniu I'rcw Receives Great Kncotir iiRcmcnt front I'.mlncnt Critic He carding Cnrccr ns n Vocalist II nas 'onK been generally conceded that Alliance has within her musical circles a large number of exceptionally good vocalists and a splendid exposition of their talents was afforded not long since in the rendi tion. ot the oratorio of Esther, the Beauti ful Queen, the excellence of which was a surprise to all, even though the ability of the singers was admitted. Efficient train ing and patient practice had produced re sults that were a revelation to those who had some idea of what could be produced in that line. Very pleasing news has reached us of one of the singers, Miss Willma Frew, who sang the leading lady's role in the oratorio so well. One of the best vocal instructors and critics in the middle west, Mr. Thomas J. Kelfey of Omaha, had this to say for Miss Frew when she sang for him last week: "You have the promise of a brilliant career. You possess a magnetic soprano voice of good range and best of all your voice is sweet and well controlled. By diligence and faithfulness to your chosen work, the future holds great possibilities." This coming from Mr. Kelly, an outspoken and conscientious artist, is as great commenda tion and encouragement as any young as pirant could desire. Miss Frew spent the past two weeks in Omaha for the purpose of learning from those competent to judge what she might hope for by further cultiva tion of her voice with the above flattering result. She is spending this week with friends at Lincoln and after returning and finishing her present 'term of school she will take vocal culture in some conserva tory. Miss Frew's many friends tender hearty congratulations and Ixdieve she will attain a very great measure of success, John Hickey, sr., one of the largest land owners near Omaha and father of John Hickey, jr., the Sioux county ranchman, writes The Herald this week; "Owing to sickness and death in my family at the time my subscription expired I neglect ed to ronew my subscription but I want the paper.

He reports stock doing well and thinks the weather has bicn more severe in this vicinity than it was in his country this winter. S. J.
