It gives us pleasure to call attention to
the advertisement of the Star Clothing
House, an old institution, but under new
management, Joseph Weber, jr., and
Will A. Vollmer succeeding Mr. Otten
as proprietors. The house has an en
viable reputation throughout IVest Ne
braska for carrying fine goods, and under
the new management we are confident
will lose none of the popularity and con
fidence of the people. Mr. Weber has
not been with us long and Is not so well
known, but Will Volmer a has been in the
house for over two years. Both are en
ergetic young men.
ay a circular irom Air. ladings we are
reminded that it is time to lay in our
winter's supply of coal, a subject the con
templation of which does not have a cool
ing effect in these dog days. Pennsyl
vania anthracite coal for August delivery
is offered for $14, Colorado anthracite
$12.50. These prices will very likely be
advanced in beptemoer or later, and. con
sumers can make interest on the invest
ment by purchasing now. As the mines
are exclusively in the hands of monopo
lists, there is no telling what the Barons
will do. Before spring the price will
likely advance to $18 for Pennsylvania.
Church & Bixler were engaged in an
important case at Sidney last week and
as usual came on victorious, a man by
the name of Henry W. Elliott, who had
been operating under several assumed
names, was an trial for horse stealing. It
was evident mat ne was a memoer of a
gang that had been doing a -wholesale
business in the line, having ranches here
and there and stables at several places.
Four or five lawyers were engaged in the
defense and the prisoner had a large
number of witnesses from different parts
of the country. The trial lasted several
days. The jury brought in a verdict of
guilty, the sentence oi tne court being
ior nve years in ine penitentiary, it is
believed this will break up the gang.

Commenting on our notice of Mr. Nes
bitt's speech at Long Pine, the Wallace
Herald is curious to learn The Tribune's
idea of handling the prohibition question.
If we should travel eighty miles to pro
test against the issuance of a saloon li
cense and succeeded in our mission, we
would be equally zealous In making com
plaint against those who were unlawfully
engaged in selling liquor in our village.
The Herald complains of drunken and
disorderly conduct in Wallace, yet there
are no saloons there. One of The Tri
bune's "ideas of handling the subject"
would be to promptly prosecute those en
caged in tne illegal trauc. A nne oia
couple hundred dollars occasionally
would soon make the business odious in
the estimation even of its most ardent
promoters. To say that a village should
not have a saloon is right and proper, but
for those who thus shut out the saloon to
sit Idly down and see the law flagrantly
violated, Is, to say the least, not the way
to handle the subject.
The Curtis Courier speaks In high
terms of Supt Langford's address before
the Frontier County institute. As a
speaker, Mr. Langford. possesses powers
that are fast attracting attention. His
subject on the occasion was "The True
Basis of Civil Liberty." The Courier
says the speaker "carefully and succently
brought together an array of clear cut
and convincing facts having a tendency
not only to fully convince the hearer of
his own earnest belief confirmed by bis
zeal, but also to show that he was master
of the subject under discussion. Forty-
five minutes of a rapid extemporaneous
grouping of seed thoughts only .sufficed
to place the subject in outline before his
hearers, but judging the future fruits of
the address by the many intelligent faces
that reflected the spirit of that bond of
ethical culture which marks the band of
teachers assembled, we are led to believe
that the echoing notes of the address will
continue to bear fruit till the full ripe
fruition of our teachers mission is an ac
complished fact"

Republican Bally in Morrow Precinct.
Our first Republican Rally was
held at G. M. Bobbitt's Friday ere
Aug. 3. It was largely attended,
fall of enthusiasm, and long to be
remembered, able speakers were
present from North Platte, Mr.
Geo. E. French taking the leading
part Mr. W. T. Bowen chairman
of the Republican Club of this pre-
cinct mane a lew remarks ana men
introduced Geo. E. French who in
his able manner told why he was
Republican and urged upon the
young men the necessity of starting
out aright in their political career.
Mr. F. is certainly a fine speaker
and has won many friends in this
vicinity. He was followed by Mr.
Goodson, and then Mr. Murphy was
loudly called for, but declined to
take the stand. R. F. Forrest was
next introduced and spoke quite
extendedly on the Tariff and The
Mills Bill. Mr. Rhea was next
called. His talk was full of en
thusiasm and we are sure if all the
ReDublicans were as zealous as
he victory would surely be theirs.
Mr. French then made a few closing
remarks, after which a paper was
circulated to obtain signers to the
young men's Republican club, which
was signed by nearly every voter m
the precinct. But the best part
was yet to come, so thought tne

For the past ten days country produce

plump, smooth tomatoes are in demand,
