They argued that a man who holds a home stead under the United States laws has an interest in a freehold and is therefore competent to sign a petition where the law requires the signa tures of free holders. The homestead law has been in operation about twenty- nve years, and yet it seems there has not been a decision on this point in the States of "Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas or Nebraska.

In the forenoon the guard and a de tachment from Stephen A.

Elmer "W. 'Cotton, a resident of Mc Connellsville, Ohio, died suddenly at his home Mar 12th, aged 66. Mr. Cotton was the oldest brother of our fellow citi zen, T. D. Cotton, and was a highly re spected citizen of Morgan county. At the time of his death he was vice president of the first national bank of McConnells ville, having been a director for fifteen years. He visited his brother in this county a couple years ago and we believe made purchases of land The trouble in the Greenwood family over near the head of Fox Creek has been amicably settled. The charge against Greenwood for threatening life was not sustained at 'the preliminary ex amination before Justice .Buchanan, and perhaps some of the other charges were exaggerated, even as modified and pub-: lished in The Tribune. The mother and child have been received and cared for at Greenwood's house. Thus is a great big mountain of scandal and false hood dwindled down to a small mole hill. In response to the advertisement in viting plans and specifications for a jail, plans were submitted by only two parties, Pauley Bros, of St Louis and W. F. 3Iareh. The commissioners resolved to accept the plan submitted by 3Ir. Marsh, provided the cost could be kept below or not exceeding $8,000, agreeing to give him 2 per cent of the contract price if the contract should be Jet on his plans and specifications. "We understand the plaas are not so elaborate as those sub mitted by Mr. Thompson. It is under stood that Mr. Marsh will accept the of fer of tbe board, but the plans have not yet been filed with the county clerk, the architect being engaged in perfecting them. Heretofore Ifurth Platte has been the principal market for dairy butter from the surrourding districts; and it will continue to be the principal market, in spite of contrary reports and in spite of the creamery; but will not likely command such fancy prices as in times past. It has always" brought from five to ten cents more than was paid at the same time in surrounding villages. AVhen but ter was worth 10 cents in Gothenburg, 15 at Ogalalla, "and was a drug at Gandy, the producer would find buyers here at 15 to 25. This of course cannot be expected to continue; but to-day dairv butter will bring a higher prici in North Platte than is paid at competing points indeed, choice dairy butter will bring an .equal' price with creamery. The creamery will not hare the effect of running the dairy butter out of the market, but it will have the effect of lessening the quantity and increasing the quality of the latter article. The Lincoln County Teachers' Insti tute will be held in the Central School Building, North Platte, beginning July 16, continuing two weeks. The law re quires that every teacher be present and take aa interest in this work in order that they may obtain a certificate. Every one in the county should take an interest in this institute, and the 'teachers ,of adjoin ing counties are invited to attend. All schools must be closed during the term of the institute. ' Don't overlook this mat ter, but one and aU be on .hand promptly and make this session one of the most saccessfnl ever held in this county. ' K. H. Langford, Co, Supt. . - consiaerea dangerous but developed into acute insanity, and culminated in his death a little over two years afterwards, as soon as the Masons were apprised of Mr. bearle's injury they took immediate siepsto protect his life insurance, the Blue Lodge of North Platte paying his dues and assessments for one year and the Chapter for one year. The Knight lemplars of Grand Island then assumed the payment of the dues for the third 3rear and notified the insurance association to hereafter send notices of dues and as, sessments lor Brother Searle to them at Grand Island as they had assumed the payment of them. The secretary of the association admits receiving this commun ication from the Knight Templars. Yet notwithstanding that, sent the notice fp North Platte and failed to send ' any no tice to Grand Island. Owing to the fail ure to send any notice to Grand Island this assessment was not paid until a week after it was due, when the secretary of the insurance association notified Mrs. Searle that the insurance had lapsed and could be re-instated if it could be, shown that Mr. Searle was in rrood health. As Mr. Searle was at that time very low and expected to die almost any time this could not be done. A short time after, this Mr. isearle died and on demand; for the payment of the policy on. his life the insurance association refused to pay or recognize the claim on account of the failure to pay this one assessment within the , stipulated time-r-a failure that 'was due to the societj' not sending the notice to the Templars who had arranged to make the payment.

Good Roads. The business interests and prosperity of the city is vitally interested in having good highways leading into the town, yet if reports be true there is no matter that has received so little attention. There seems to be an entire absence of any con cern on the subject. Yet the city is los ing trade by this policy, and may ulti mately be seriously crippled. People living on the south side west of the city have actually been hauling supplies from Wallace because of the bad condition of the roads near this citj We have allud ed to this subject before. The condition is not creditable to the town. Merchants say it is not our business to repair coun try roads. No ; but it is your business to bring intluence to bear in such a wa- as to cause them to be repaired and kept in repair. We want people to come here to trade, but if we shut ourselves up on an inaccessable point, they will go else where. This subject should receive some atten tion from property holders and business men. City Council Proceedings. The council held a special meeting May 25th at which all the members were present and there was a "right smart" of business transacted. Ordinance No. 70, which will be found elsewhere, was considered and passed. It orders a side walk running north and south on Maple streetfrom Front to the south limits of the citv, thus giving access from the north side to the Second ward school house. There was also a crossing ordered at the intersection of bpruce arid Second streets. City engineer Ross made a verbal re port relative to the construction of ditches west of the citv to carry the water north and south and thus prevent to a certain extent overflows within the city limits. The clerk was ordered to advertise for proposals to furnish the city with lumber for the ensuing year. Wm. Woodhurst and W. 11. u ites were appointed special policemen for the com- . m. r 1 r i .Til ing year, l neir special neia or moor wm be Mr. Woodhurst at the depot and Jlr. Fikes at the opera house. The council -then adjourned. The next regular meeting is the com ing Monday evening. "A grand success," that's what is said about the ball that took place Tuesday evening for the benefit of the Third Ward Hose Co. And we judged that the remark was true when we learned that the affair would clear over 100. The success does not ena nere, nowever, ior there is another feature that goes to make success in gatherings of this kind : the social and artistic. The firemen of the department appeared m full uniform, a costume that is more suitable to iree and graceful action than can be indulged in when restrained oy a iun oress. uanaut- ry ana sociability was me oraer oi ine evening, as may well be expected under such circumstances. The dance ended about half past one. nianner in which their carts and imple ments were , decorated. All displayed good taste, but of the hose companies the Third ward was apparently the most ap propriate. The hook and ladder truck was beautifully decorated, drawn by a span of coal black horses, the ladders be ing surmounted by n full grown moun tain lion. The exercises at tho opera house were opened with prayer by Rev. Comrade W. D. Hall, followed by the reading of general orders trom national neadquar- ters and ix. a. it. memorial service. Comrade J. W. Bixler delivered the for mal address. Then followed short ad- dresses by Rev. Adam Stump, Rev. Howe of Virginia, W.,T. Wilcox, H. M. Grimes, Rer. Comrade W. D. Hall. 1 he exercises were interspersed bv vocal music rendered by members of the Meth odist and Lutheran choirs and by several choice selections by the band, practiced especially lor the occasion. .Everything passed otr in the most sat isfactory manner. There was nothing to mar the solemn and patriotic observance of the occasion., There were fully five thousand people in the city, yet hot a case of disorderly conduct was observed. The people felt that it was a day.on which they were to honor theTdepafrted and living neroes or me xNauon.

It has been a cold month, the mean temper ature having been lower only in 1883 dur ing the past fourteen years- It .has also been a wet month, the total precipitation being tbe greatest and spread over the largest number of days ever recorded.

De coration Day at the McPhersori Na- tional Cemetery. In accordance with the usual custom, and one, too, which should be kept in holv remembrance bv J .L ! 7 ! fV1 -T imure generations wnne time en dures, memorial service in honor of the nation s dead at Fort McPher son was very appropriately conduc ted and the day very properly ob served by the residents of, that vi cinity assisted by friends from North Platte. The people began to assemble about 10 o'clock a. m. and bv 2 o'clock p. ni., the hour appointed for the exercises to commence, over one hundred persons had assembled to do honor to the fallen braveto strew a flower and drop a tea for those who had joined the great ar my beyond while in defense of their country. Hon. John I. Nesbitt, orator of the day, took charge of the,. arrange ments and after the national hyuin was rendered by a volunteer cLoir, delivered an excellent address in whicl he referred to different epochs in American history, the progress which had been made, the great privileges we enjoy and concluded with an eulogium on the "soldier bojs" which for depth of thought and pathos is seldom , surpassed. After which Supt. R. H. Langford was called upon and in a few well timed remarks spoke of the innate ! bravery of the Americans, of their adaptability to surrounding circum stances and of their intense love of freedom which they all possess, closing with a fitting tribute to those who gave their lives for prin ciple and to secure to ns the liber ties which we now enjoy. Atty. Geo. E. French was the next speaker and in a talk full of feeling and overflowing with intcrsst, held the attention of the audience for a short time. Iheh fol lowed Hon. A. H.

The consequence is that the markets of Denver, Cheyenne and other points west of us are overstocked with butter.
