the potash cases. In 1917, the Krauze
brothers purchased the homestead of
Peter J. Long, in Sheridan county
containing a section of land. At the
.same time they purcnaseu ianu jiy...
.Long's father. The purchase price for
the two lots of land was $17,000,
Long' share of the money being about
45,000, which was not only a fair, but
a high price for sandhill land at that
time. A potash lake was on a part f-f

Long had deducted the purchase price

brought suit for the balance. The case
was tried before an Omaha jury, and
Lone was given judgment for $5,000.

A meeting of those interested in the
formation of a charity organization
for Alliance has been culled for next
Monday noon at the chamber of com
merce headquarters above the Bren
nan drug store. This action was taken
by the chamber of commerce members
present at the Monday luncheon this
week, at which time the matter was
he i-uhict of discussion.
City Manager N. A. Kemmish called
attention to the need for centraliza
tion of the charity activities of the
city and urged an organization with
iomeone in charge who would accept
the responsibility of distributing aid
where it was needed.
Rev. B. J. Mii.ort, pastor of the Al

Need for Investigation
The need for a central charity or
ganization to care for the needy anJ
ientitu'.e in the city was urged in or-
r ler that wnwne would make piopc-r
.nvesrigation and in order to prevent
he present duplication of effort. Ay
t is now, every church has a charity
fund and several of the city's organi-
are also doing some charity
the United States and Canada. Many
very interesting subjecw were dis
cussed although the program was not
carried out as planned. The out
standing feature of the entire meeting
hlch impressed us wan the vast dif
ference between the south and east as
compared to the west. They discussed
ways and means or doing certain
things which we have settled here
long ago. They are held down by old
laws, customs and traditions not
known in the west which greatly
hamper their progress. We are glad
of them. One person even asked me
if the grass grew out here . We were
proud indeed to represent Alliance
which our lug brotner city on tne east
border of the state sajs- is the livest
city in Nebraska.
Wherever we went great interest
as shown in the city manager move
ment. People everywhere now are
thinking more than before and arc
going to demand more strict business
methods in city airairs.
I enioved the trip but I am glad in
deed to be back to our wonderful lit
tle city of Alliance.
