might result in their resumption of

Another benefit which might accrue
from the installation of the pipe hnos
through Alliance territory would be
that in cat-e oil is discovered at Lake

The preliminary surveying party,
composed of Sinclair engineers, arrived
in Alliance late Tuesday afternoon by
auto, enroute south und east. They
came by way of Harrison, Agate and

here, they were immediately taken by
Sccrctaiy Thomas of the chamber of
commerce to Hollland, Anlioch and
Lakeside to view the potash plants
and di.-trict and to inspect tho Lake

In order to give our :eopIe an idea
of what this business will mean to the
city, the chamber of commerce has
been doing a little "checking up" on
the business now being realized from
the touri.-ts who now visit cur city,
with astonishing results.
On Wednesday aitcrnoon two auto
loads of tourists from Alliance, O..
stopped over in Alliance, Neb., for
about three hours. They made the trip
up fiom the Lincoln Highway via
ishkosh and Hroadwater over the
C-P-C, ami although their cars were
heavy cars a sedan and a coupe
they 'said that the road from Broad
water to Alliance was not bad travel
and not nearly so bad as some of the

During their short stop they visited
garages, tire shops and clothing
stores. A check-up of their purchases
revealed the fact that they had f-pent
over !?K)0 while in the city. That
means .1."j0 that will roll around
Alliance, from till to till and pocket

or more of debts and in purchases of

first day of June, the two man were
bound over for trial in district court
under bonds of $500, but something
softened the heart of the county at
torney, who may have remembered his
town courtship days, and the severe
charge wa withdrawn nnd the two
disappointed lovers allowed to plead
iruilty to a lesser offense. Judge Tash

off with a mere fine of $a0, had done
nothing more than wrap an iron bar

Mr. Newberry placed a .special order
personally with a firm in Chicago on
May 10 in order to hurry it out. We
expected this pipe to arrive by May
25. When it did not come, however,
we began wiring Chicago about it only
tn find it had not been shinned. The
firm then wired us that they would
ship it June 1. We immediately be
gan tracing it on the railway and
could not find it. Yesterday we re
ceived a bill of lading stating that it
was shipped on June 9 just twenty
four days after receiving the rush
order. Mr. Gavin and the men in the

the streets in good shape out there
are quite a number of them which ori'y
need a small amount of work. We
are hoping to have a rain to I.iy the
