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

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
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
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,"

Secretary Persinger has favored this of

from a glance at the latter it is easy to see
there will be plenty competition for the
preminms offered.
We understand that our enterprising
merchant H. C. Rennie will open a branch

unlocks the door which leads to wealth,
he is likely to be even more successful

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

North Platte is their natural market, .and
they naturally come here with their grain
and other produce, yet think their iacili

improved. It is likely that an election

It is high time to be laying in a sup

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

less it tne entryman was a soldier in the
late rebellion. This is often done, es

department requiring fourteen years be

may be acquired by preemption, the price

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

ten cents per glass. Ogalalla has good
water, free for all, and the people find it
an excellent substitute for the Teutonic

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

Neeves of the Reflector was in Denver at

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,

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.

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

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
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.
