Misses Nellie and Laura Donahue, neices of Mre." Warren Lloyd, nrrived In the city Monday even ing to spend their -summer vacation of six weeks. They are nttending school at Cleveland, Ohio, and Miss Nellie expects to gradunte next year. While enjoying their summer outing, they will visit Denver, Colorado Springs, and adjacent points. Several leading stockholders of the Kearney cotton mill company arrived in that city Sunday evening and they affirm that work on the mill will be commenced at once. Material for tho building is now being hauled on the ground and it would seem that the company moons to go to work In earnest. The heat in the middle and eastern states has been very excessive during the past week, hun dreds of persons being prostrated and many fatalities occuring. The death rate among chil dren in the large cities has been alarming. Here in North Platte, the weather has been warm, but we believe only one or two temporary prostrations have occurred. The amount of school money received from tho State by this county from the June apportion ment was $2,53U1; fine and fl5.C2 fractional remainder makes $2,553.03 apportioned to the various school districts by the county superinten dent The amount to each district was 18.13 and $00.0678 for each person of school age. The money is now in tho hands of the county treasurer subject to draft by tho various school districts. Andy Scharmanri and Andy Weinberger thought they would take advantage of repairs be ing made on the Scharmaun residence, and invited a large party of their friends to assemble for a dance on Tuesday evening last. Accordingly when the orchestra Messrs. Olds, Shepard and. Redmond struck up, there were about twenty couple on the floor. In spite of the warm evening, the dancing was continued until after midnight Refreshments were served during the evening and no means was spared to make the evening a pleasant one for those present. It was a very pleasant party and the boys deserve much credit for the able manner in which they entertained their guests. The union Sufiday-school picnic at Calhoun's grove Thursday last was participated in by the Presbyterian, Methodise, Lutheran and Episcopal schools of the city and by the Hillside school of ih north side. The procession to the grove, which if. some five miles north, left the city about eleven o'clock, arriving at tho destination in plenty time to spread lunches for a one o'clock dinner. After dinner there was an impromptu programme of exercises consisting of addresses by Revs. Stump and Hart, recitations by the Hillside school and singing by the assembled audience. It may well ttt mentioned here that although organized but four aonths the Hillside school was represented at this gathering by fifty-seven members. The day was well .enjoyed by sUf notwithstanding it was warm and the shade limited. TjUt -Tbibcnk is in formed that much of the success of talsnion gathering is due to Mrs. Ritner and. Messrs. Wolkpram! Calhoun, THREE THOUSAND AND FIFTY-FIVE. First -ward, 898, Second ward, 1339, Third ward, 818. The above figures represent the popu lation found in North Platte, by the enumerators. That the amount is con siderably, below the actual population there is not a particle of doubt, as a num ber of instances where persons were not enumerated are mentioned, and the opinion is expressed by persons compe tent to judge that 'fully 200 have been omitted. The actual resident population is about 3,300. While this is not so great an increase as was expected, the figures nevertheless show a healthy growth. In 1885 the state census gave us 2540. We are grow ing slowly but surely, and that growth is of a substantia, permanent mature. Tbe character of the people has changed; formerly they were transient, but now they are permanent. They are here to make homes, and are making homes. Coming here originally with the inten tion of staying but "a short time, they found North Platte a pleasant place to live in, and they have made It their per manent home, many of them growing rich and all prospering. A Liquor Case Settled. Frank Gapen, of Wellfleet, made com plaint last week, tfcat one John Franklin had been selling ' beer, the said John Franklin having no license or authority so to do, as in such cases made and pro vided. Accordingly County Judge'Snell ing gave tho warrant into thej hands of Sheriff Buker, who proceeded to the resi dence of Franklin, near the Frontier county line, and took him into custody. The procession arrived here on Mon day evening and negotiations were at once made to settle the case. Frankiin promised that he would not sell any more liquor and tho prosecuting witness was prevailed upon not to appear, so the defendant was discharged having first paid the costs, amounting to a "right smart" sum. It don't pay to sell liquor without li cense in Nebraska. If you want to do that you can go over into Kansas. The Weather During' June. Mean barometer, 29.28. Highest barometer, 30 38, date 7.

When we saw him he had taken thirty-one statements of business men Compared with several' other towns of equal size,, he foaa North Platte in a prosperous condition. This confirms what Tiie Tribune: has frequently as serted that consideriBgthe depressed con dition of business throughout the State, our people have no right to complain. Trade is in a healthy condition, with a fair prospect of improyem.ent. Now what we want to do is"o stop wailing, put our shoulders to tlio-wMeel and march on to success. ; r The pnstoflice waii moved on Sunday last to the North Platte.

As regards the loca tion however, it will dot be. any more convenient than the old' location, perhaps not so much so. But it is centrally loca ted, in a good buiidinf , ,and no one will find fault. The office will likely remain in its present location for an indefinite time. . r We are sorry that'North Platte does not celebrate the Fourth of July this year. All the little towns round about are cele brating. Ogalalia, Paxfpn, Brady Island, Gothenburg, Wellfleet ib1 Wallce are each to have a grand and Wg time, but North Platte, the largeafr town io the State west of Kearney, will'be as quiet as on any Sunday morning,... It is true that it costs something Uxret-up a good cele bration, but the money is.raore than re turned by the people.i who are gathered from the surrounding, country. Tiie Tribune suggests that next year North Platte shall have a celebration that may properly be denominated'graud." W. C. Elder and ,Wa. ISmerson went down to Lincoln last jreek to attend the meeting of the Veterans. Barring the heat they report that their visit was pleasant. There was. a large attendance, and a marked feature of the gathering was the earnestness, aianifested by all present. The old soldiers feel that they have not been fairly treated and will not rest until promises aa-je been fulfilled. New home grovca potatoes have been in the market for .some days, and are far superior to the imported truck. We believe that the vegetables grown in Lincoln county are mach better than those bronght from California and Texas in fact that Is well established. This part of Nebraska 'stepd? at the very head in this 1'ne-wVc Most of our people will- spend the Fourth in a very quiet manner, some pic nicing in the country, a few going to Wallae, others visiting various points up and down the road, fcju by far the larger number will remain" etietly at home. Next year we must indttlge in tbe luxury of a big blow-out. f J Lucien Stebbins'waa a delegate to tho Union Labor Conferaace held: in Lincoln -last week, represent! .the alliance of this county. While not ao boisterous Ex-Gov. Butler aad 9eTaeT others, Mr. S. was aa lnnaeauii- neaaaer,' doing much Meeting of the Republican County Cen tral Committee. TJhe Republican county central commit tee met in the court house last Saturday afternoon, pursuant to call of Chairman Wilcox, there being n good representa tion present. The chairman-stated the object of the meeting was to call a county convention, arrange for basis of representation, fix primaries, and nr- holding the time of range details. The first question taken up was that of fixing basis of representation. Mr. McAllister moved that the basis be the same as last year that is one dele gate for each twenty votes and one for each major fraction thereof, cast for Judge Norval in 1889. After considerable discussion the mo tion was adopted. A motion was made that the covention be called for the purpose of selecting delegates to all the conventions and nom inating a county ticket. Capt. Baker, of Cottonwood, said that he had at first been in favor of holding only one convention and making all the nominations at once, but "upqn reflection, he believed the better course would be to hold an early conven tion for the selection of delegates to the State convention and one later, say some time in September, for the other work. He therefore opposed the motion. Mr. Osgood moved to amend so that convention be called only to choose - dele gates to the state convention. After discussion participated in by Messrs. Osgood, McAllister. Forrest, L-Dudley, Meyers, Baker, Clayton, and others, tho amendment was aanpieu oy a vote of 13 to 6. Chairman Wilcox remarked that the affirmative vote was so decisive that it seemed unnecessary to put the main ques tion, so the convention will be called to choose delegates to tiie State convention only. The date of tho convention was then set for Saturday, July 19th, at 2 p. ra., at the court house in North Platte. The primaries to bo held on Saturday, July 12th, in North Platte precincts from 3 to 0 p. m. and in the county precincts from 5 to 7 p . m . A motion was made and secouded that the committee recomme nd that no proxies be admitted to the convention and that the delegates present cast the full vote of the precinct. This gave rise to an animated discus sion, several members fearing that if adopted it might result in the disfran chisement of country precincts. Several amendments were offered and lost, one to make the rule apply t North Platte only, another that if a delegate is sick or unable to attend he be permitted to give a proxy. After full explanation the original motion was adopted unanimously. The committee theu adjourned Do not forget Conway Sister's clear ing sale, advertised elsewhere in this paper. C. W. Keyes, formerly a resident of O'Fallon precinct, but now living in Arthur county, was a sojourner in town for several days last week. Mr. K. says that small graiu in his neighborhood looks verj' line. He has fifty acres of wheat which he believes- will go thirty bushels provided nothing happens to injure it between this and harvest. A Bis Case. The assignment of Rider & Green of Wallace, will likely lead to a large amount of litigation. The caso came up on Thursday before the county judge for the appointment of an assignee. There are seventeen different creditors mention e'd in the deed of assignment, a majority of whom were represented, but they were unable to agree, the two principal cred itors Tallinjr to come -into court upon. learning that a certain person would be appointed. Consequently the goods re main in the hands of Sheriff Baker, lock up awaiting legal action. The liabilities are about 7,127.00 and the stock invoiced $8064.00, but there is always a depreciation and it is quite like ly that the creditors will not realize over 75 cents on the dollar, unless a good bus iness man is put in charge of the stock. The case is making a large amount of work for the court and lawyers. All the attorneys of Wallace, C. C. Williams -of Grant, and nearly all of North Platte have been retained by the different cred itors. From present indications the legal work Jias just commenced and it may take all of these gentlemen a year or more to adjust the numerous questions raised. Basket Meeting.
