STEVENS & BARE, Editors and Pkops SATUBDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 1886. we The atovf fes acxoas Femrth treet were iHcd by the city this wk. The bcidre across South river at CFallon is afeoat completed.

Hopkins levery seriously ill and fears are enter- tawed for her recovery. Now if the Wallace base ball club "will pay lor tne mask tney earned away wnb them, our boys are willing to call it square on the board bill and gate receipts Mae jJietnoaist ladies gave a very pleasant sociable at the opera house J aursaay evening, supper ana ice cream baictg served. If attendants did not en joy the occasion the fault was their own. We havn't heard the Democrats of , the city howling themselves hoarse over the nomination of Jno. A. McShane for governor of this commonwealth. The A "great unwashed" evidently don't take much stock in the glaring headline in the TeUgraph. r. According to notice previously given, Jbo several clothinghouses of the city; which heretofore have kept-open on Sun. day forenoon, closed their doors Inst Sat urday night and did not open until Mon day morning. A double male quartette has been or ganized for the purpose furnishing vocal music of a Republican nature during the campaign. The boys composing the club are fair singers and with a little prac tice will materially assist in making things hum when the campaign is fairly opened. A dance under the auspices of the "Three Cranks," Messrs. Monegan, Mar - . . tin and Klein, was held at the opera h- house last evening. If good music is one k2enf the necessary requisites for a pleasant time at a dance, and we believe it is, par ticipants surely had that requisite, for the music rendered by these "Three Cranks" is not excelled by any trio in the state. T. J. 9rant of Denver has the contract for putting in the bridge across the North river at this place at $3 62 per lineal foot. There was one bid lower than Mr. Grant's but as the specifications were faulty it was thought by the board that Mr. Grant's bid was the lowest and best bid, hence they did exactly right in letting the contract to him. Paxtoiv Pilot. C. S. Clinton was married at Grand Rapids, Mich., Thursday to Miss Gussie Kusterer, of that city. The couple are expected to arrive in the city to-night or to-morrow and will stop at the Pacific Hotel until the Hinman house on Fifth is put in readiness for their occupancy. The Tribune together with the many friends of Mr. Clinton will accord to him and his estimable lady a warm welcome. One of the boys who returned from Sail Lake this week, saw a number of former North Platte people in that city. Among the number were Oliver Shannon and sons Harry and Tom. The old gen tleman is reported to have a small law practice and the boys are running a cigar store. Louio Bayer obtained capital from one of the boys visiting there and had started a barber shop. John Boscha, who married Miss Addie Cash is a clerk in the D. fc R. G. railway offices. North" Platte lias grown so large that the erection of a dozen residence build ings makes very little impression on the apparent size of the town. During the present summer, according to the estimate of a competent builder, about fifty resi dences have already been constructed, and they can scarcely be noticed. The season is not yet orejiHnumber of par ties contemplating fcuildVgyet before cold weather sets in. Take it an around, this will be a busy building season. J. N. Bickal, formerly of this city ,and later of Fairview and O'Fallon precincts, decamped a week or so ago, leaving a large number of bills unpaid. It is said that he also sold several horses, wagons, etc., which were mortgaged. He has "done np" the merchants of this place for a thousand dollars or so, in sums ranging from $25 to $175. Bickal's record for the past two years has not been the best, ana it is a source of wonder that merchants and others placed so much confidence in him. Judging from the looks of the rail which broke and caused "the accident at Kimball this week, it would be to the interest of the company as well as a duty to the public to inspect the track a little closer, especially near stations, and re place defective rails with good ones. The slipping of wheels when starting and stopping trains causes a greater wear near stations than at other points and the rail becomes not only worn on the surface but the great strain gradually destroys its elasticity and strength. This ap peared to have been the cause of the 'breakage at Kimball. As will be seen by reference to an advertisement on this page, the Model clothing house will open for business about one week from to-day in. the room lately occupied by McEvoy. Carpenters have been at work for several days put ting in new shelving and counteis, thus making the room a very desirable and suitable one. Mr. Einstein, one of the proprietors, assures us that his stock will be new and strictly first-class and that his prices will be such as to insuro him a liberal share of the public patronage. He is an experienced salesman and in com pany with C. H. Randall will do some tall rustling. Last Saturday Mrs. C. F. Iddings en tertained a party of young folks at a tea party in honor of Arthur McNamara, that gentleman having attained his majority on that day. Among the features of the affair was the presentation, of twenty-one rosebuds to 3Iac by his friends. The gray haired critic of this paper is inclined to believe that twenty-one full blown roses would have been more appropriate, signalizing hi s entrance from youthhood into manhood, for he is now a full blown man. However the party is spoken of as one of the most recherche of the year, Mrs. Iddings displaying taste in the se lection of her viands, care in serving the same and ability in entertaining the guests. In view of the fact that many of the younger society boys will leave for school in a few days, a number of young ladies whose ages range from fourteen to sev enteen gave them a farewell party, the affair being held at the Stevens residence on Tuesday evening. The chief entertaining-feature of the evening was danc ing and for this purpose a large platform was erected on the lawn which was illuminated by an engine headlight and Chinese lanterns. The misses looked their sweetest, the boys were as gallant as men of extended society experience, the refreshments, which were furnished by the girls, were all that could be de sired, so there was no reason why the participants should not have a happy ev ening. The boys highly appreciated this honor bestowed upon them by their fair friends and in the midst of their school I life will allow their, thoughts to revert to the "girls they left behind them," J. H. Hassinger, formerly of this city, was nominated by the Republican convention or liogan county tor costmis- r??-inn..

C. Rennie will open a branch store at Sidney in the near future. There are no flies on this rustling North Platter and as energy is one of the keys which unlocks the door which leads to wealth, he is likely to be even more successful than he has been in the past. Railroad men speafe in high praise of the expeditious manner in which the Kimball wreck was straightened up The accident nappenea about; nait past two a. m. The wrecking tram from this city ran 150 miles, and had every car on the trackready to be moved out of the way before six o'clock. Lincoln rounty in fact the whole of West Nebraska produces the very finest of melons. This year the crop is large and the quality cannot be better. Not withstanding the abundant supply prices have been well maintained, the warm weather making a good demand.- Musk- melons are 111st coming in, although a tew half ripened ones have been offered for a week or more past. Those who have raised a good quality of the latter will realize quick sales at good prices. Birdwood people are very anxious for a bridge across North river at a point j near the mouth of the Birdwood. While North Platte is their natural market, .and they naturally come here with their grain and other produce, yet think their iacili ties for reaching the railroad should be improved.

It is high time to be laying in a sup ply of coal for winter use; we will all want to hug the base-burner, and nothing but a good supply of anthracite will make tne operation comtortaoie. in tnis year of liberal premiums, we had concluded not to offer any except for the biggest melon as outlined in The Tribune week or two ago. But on reflection and at the earnest solicitation of numerous dealers, we have decided to offer one for coal. To the party sending us the lar gest and best load of anthracite coal we will send The Tribune one year. For the second best load we shall offer no premium, but during the year will donate the donor several good sized chunks of thanks. We desire to bo as liberal in this matter as is consistent with sound business principles. The Tribune has received a num oer oi inquiries iaiejy rej.auye to, iub prices of real estate In Lincoln' county, notably one from Texas, one from Lin coin, and another from Wisconsin. Land in this county is yet cneap, ana can oe purchased all the way from $3 to $10 per acre, according to quality ana distance from the city, rood farming land being generally held at 6 per acre. There is also considerable' government land, but the best has been taken, that remaining being what is generally called grazing land. Large tracts of this can be taken, and at no distant day will be quite valua ble. Parties having the homestead right can purchase relinquishments at very liberal figures considering the Improve ments. Tins is otten tne cneapest way to take a homestead, as the purchaser se cures at once a cultivated farm in a set tled community with church and school facilities. Timber claim relinquishments can also be purchased, in some cases, where held by non-residents who have be come tired of their venture, at the actual cost of entry. This is cheaper than to break the entry by contest, saving publl cation and attorney fees. A timber cul ture entry can be converted into a home stead and title acquired in five years, or less it tne entryman was a soldier in the late rebellion. This is often done, es pecially under the present ruling of the department requiring fourteen years be fore you can make final proof. Land may be acquired by preemption, the price being within the limits of the railroad grant (20 miles on each side of the road) $2. 50 per acre ; outside the limit, $1.25 per acre. The entryman Is obliged to re side upon a preemption at least one year before he can prove up, but he may if he desires take two years and a half While we have frequently been through the place on the railroad, this week was the first time the writer has visited He was most agreeably .

" Large moth stores, fine brick buildings, mam hotels, have taken the place of low rookeries and other aux iliaries of the former cow-boy town. In stead of every other door a saloon run ning openly without license, there is but one institution of the kind in the town, and that one pays $1,000 per year for the privilege of doing business. The people of Ogalalla know from experience that hich license prohibits, for if any one wants a class of laeer he must have trood bank account to stand the strain of ten cents per glass. Ogalalla has good water, free for all, and the people find it an excellent substitute for the Teutonic beverage. We found a number of form er North Platte residents doing business there, who gave us a cordial greeting. S. A. Stoner has the largest general store in tho city one of the largest west of Omaha occupying a triple building 75x 90 feet. This large space in one room is divided into departments embracing dry goods, millinery, clothing, bpots and shoes, groceries, feed, hardware, and in fact everything except furniture. Mr. S. is county treasnrer, very popular and does a large business. E. M. Day is practicing law, while Mrs, D. runs the photograph gallery. Louie Breternitz is in the butch er business, and looked as happy and jolly as butchers always do. Mark 31. Neeves of the Reflector was in Denver at tending the deep water convention, but his son gave The Tribune man a warm greeting. Of course no one can visit Ogalalla without calling on the "Wild Irishman," Mr. Mullane of the iWtc, that is, If he don't call on Mullane he will miss a treat. , We found him "at home," right in the midst of editorial stereotyp ing, press and other work incident to a country printing office but he found time to entertain uf most cordially for half an hour. The people of Ogalalla are enter prising, hospitable, and have strong faith in the bright future of their town. Their faith is well placed and their expectations will not be disappointed. teaaiMttar Wherry hs received notice thac eai M of Heptesnoer a new tea wMfclr msH kmM aw astabttslMsl n across tat oswnr oeewsen iua cur aao.

Tho Illinois Central. Will Build to Denver The Omaha Herald says: "From infor matien fathered in railroad circles yester day, it appears that the Illinois Central, the western terminus ot wnicn at present is Sioux City, proposes to build a line to Denver." It is not generally known but is nevertheless a fact surveyors in the employ of the Illinois Central were in North Platte over a year aeo making a railroad survey, and if the Illinois Cen tral builds this line there can be scarcely a doubt but what it will come to North Platte, as we are on a direct line through & territory entirely unoccupied. The Central is a company having abund ant financial ability, and having no branches west of the Missouri it is natural she should want to reach Denver and the mountain districts. There has always been a certain amount of mystery as to what company was backing the southwestern road constructed out some sixty or seventy miles from Sioux City and graded as-far as Greeley county. In the light of this announcement it must be the Central. North Platte will extend a warm wel come to the new road. A Disgraceful Case. One of those cases that are a disgrace to any community was tried on prelimin ary hearing before Justice Stolle this week. The complaining witness was James Tatum, charging that his daughter, Rebecca, a child about 15 years old, had been raped by one David Potter. All the parties live In Birdwood precinct, about twenty-five miles northwest of this city. The testimony elicited a disgraceful state of affairs in the Tatum family. Tatum is an old man of some sixty years. His children arenot of the .brightest, and are apparently anything but models of virtue, one son being now a fugitive from justice by reason of incestuous conduct. In the complaint Rebecca is alleged to be of unsound mind. The poor girl has been betrayed, and sought to fasten the guilt upon David Potter, a man of middle age, the father of a family, living near the Tatum's. The hearing occupied two days, being conducted by County Attorney Nesbitt for the State, and by W. T. Wilcox and W. B. Rlsse for the defense. The law yers for the defendant conducted their case with great spirit, eliciting an equal amount of energy and earnestness from Mr. Nesbitt The justice decided that there was not sufficient cause to hold the prisoner, and he was discharged. A Train Ditched. A serious accident occured to overland train No. 3 on the U. P. as she was pass ing through Kimball early Wednesday morning, resulting in the ditching of a baggage car and four sleepers. All sorts of wild rumors were afloat all day Wed nesday as to the number killed and wounded, but nothing authentic could be learned. Railroad employees are reticent and even if they know are not expected to impart their knowledge to others. From a gentleman who came down on the evening passenger, we learned that one baggage and four sleeping cars were thrown off the track, two of the sleepers rolling over on their sides. The passen gers wern baaiy snaken up, but only four were injured, and all of those only slight ly. The accident happened opposite the water tank, but fortunately the cars went off on the side from the tank,, otherwise the result might have been very different. The cause is said to have been a broken rail. The engine and express car passed over in safety. Carl Sprechel's private car was attached to the tram, the forward trucks of which were off the track. The sugar king was on his way from New York to California. The cars were not broken much and only slightly damaged, and were easily placed on the track. The Water Company has been ex tending pipes in the west part of the city for the benefit oi consumers. The coaches that were in the Kim ball wreck were taken down the road Thursday on. their way to tho. repair shops". With the exception of the brok en platforms and three or four broke n windows in one car, one would scarcely have noticed that the cars had been in a wreck, running nearly one hundred yards over ties and on the around. The dam age can be repaired for about $200. We were shown yesterday by Mr. Frederic! a sample of French Imperial wheat grown by him on his farm four miles west ef town. It is very fine and he has prepared a sample to be sent to the state fair. He has just threshed, the wheat yielding about thirty bushels to the acre. His oats and barley ,were equally as. good. Mr. F. believes that his corn is the best in the county. Complaint was made Thursday charging M. C. Keith and Jack Small- wooa, one oi nis mrea men, with selling a gianaerea norse. it appears that Small T?ood traded off one of Mr. Keith's horses and the animal proved to have some kind of a catarrh or cold, by some pronounced glanders. The complaint was dismissed yesterday morn in r. The horse has been isolated and Dr. Gerth, the State veterinary surgeon, informed. It is believed he will be here soon to de termine thecharacter of the disease. ATTENTION COMRADES. National Encampment of G. A. R. at Columbus, Ohio. Sept. 1888. Tickets on sale Sept 7 to 9.
