BEACH I. HINMAN CANED.
HE 18 VISITED BY A DELEGATION OF FIKE
MEX AND THEIK LADIES.
Wke Show Their Appreciation of
Generosity in the Fast by Present
ing ffim With a Cane.
A PLEASANT OCCASION.
"When the members of the Second
ward hose team christened their organi
zation the "B. I. Hinman Hose Com
pany," they made a ten-strike in more
trays than one. In doing so they honored
a gentleman -who for the past twenty
years has been closely identified with the
social life and commercial progress of the
city; a man who has always enjoyed the
esteem and confidence of every acquaint
ance. They also did an act whiclrbas
redounded to their success financially,
as Mr. Hinman has been very generous
to the company in several past instances.
Several weeks ago Mr. Hinman sug
gested to tho hose company that they
had better secure a banner to display on
parade occasions and that the members
select a suitable one and he would see
that the bill was paid. The members
felt highly gratified by this kind offer
and at once ordered a banner. It arrived
some time ago and is a veritable beauty.
It is of yellow silk, blue edges, and
trimmed with gold fringe. At the top in
a fwld of blue are the gold letters "B. L.
Hinman Hose Co. No. 2;" in the center
the cut of a fire engine and below the
words "North Platte, Nebraska, Organ
ized Feb. 12, 1888."
Feeling that they owed a debt of
thanks to the generous donor, the mem
bers of the hose company, accompanied
by their wives and best girls, together
with the city officials and their ladies,
visited the Hinman residence Thursday
evening and knocked for admission.
They were kindly and cordially received
by Mr. and Mrs. IL and at once made to
feel at home. After a few formalities
Mr. French, in behalf of the company,
arose and in a neat and fitting speech
presented Mr. Hinman with an elegant
gold-headed cane. In accepting this
token of esteem the recipient made a
brief and feeling reply, thanking the
boys for the cane and the manifestation
of good will, and at the same time inti
mated that he had not done any more
for the company than it deserved.
After these proceedings the party
passed several hours in social en joyment,
at card eamos and other amusements
refreshments of a palatable nature
being served at a proper hour.
The evening throughout was re
plete with pleasure, and the event
will long be remembered by those in

blamed the Republican party and high

made around the court house lately and
the good work should not cease until
some much needed repairs are made in
the court room. The Tribune regrets
to say that the hall in which justico is
meted out two or three times a year is
ono of the most barren and shabbiest in
the state of Nebraska and one that every
citizen of the county may well feel
ashamed of. We believe the general fund
is at present depleted, but we hope that
the commissioners in making their
estimate of expenses next year will not
forget that several hundred dollars will
be needed to properly repair and furnish
the court room.

and stock dealer, when he had been
watching a "respectable citizen," Martin
Thorne, frequently carry off a basket or
sack of corn from his elevator for the
last few months. A few days ago the
unsuspecting Martin sold his two hogs,
that he had been fattening on the ill
gained corn, to the stock dealer in ques
tion. The weights were figured up and
Mr. Thorne paid in cash, minus 86.80,
for which Robathorn presented a bill
like this: "Martin Thorne, debtor, to

corn" and accepted the bill. Gothen

SIXTH STREET AND THE CITY GOVERN?
Eds. Tribune. The condition of
Sixth street between Spruce and Locust
streets would seem to show that the city
is running itself.
The same old story. Taxes raised and
"blowed in" with nothing to show. It
seems to be no one's particular business,
therefore nothing done. I notice it is
some one's business when there is a cow
to be impounded, or when the time
comes to collect from the prostitutes.
In fact if there is a dollar or two in sight
it is some ones particular business.
I hereby notify the public that from
this date my store will be open until 8
o'clock p. m. I do this in order that
those who wish to look through my
stock of stoves in the evening can do so.
My stock is very largo and must he sold
regardless of cost Come early and get
your choice before the assortment is
broken, for they are going fast Every
thing else at bottom prices.
FRANK J. KELLY
HE ADDRESSES A LARGE AUDIENCE
THE OPERA HOUSE SATURDAY EnaflTN,'
And Presents Figure to Prove
hibltlon ts not a Success In
Kelly is a Plain Forcible Spei
AS INTELLIGENT GATHERING. .
The anti-prohibition meeting at, the:
opera house Saturday evening was at
tended by an audience which filled eTery
chair on the floor and many who ,omm'
in late were forced to stand. The speaker
of the evening was Hon. Frank J. Kelly,
at Lincoln, who prior to his restoral to
Nebraska last fall, resided in Kttaaa for
seventeen years, and was for three
terms a member of the legiaiatare
of that state. Mr. Kelly is a temper
ance man, advocates temperance, but
from personal experience in Kansas can;
not feel favorable to prohibition, aad te:
sustain his stand presented to the aud?;
ience an array of facts and figures prov-j
ing that the prohibitory measure adopt-:
ed by Kansas had an ill effect upon that;
state both morally and financially. The
statistics presented by the speaker came1
from sources which should proW", their
reliability, and these were backed by his!
own observation and experience. They
would therefore seem to stand the' test
of a critical examination and be found'
correct He presented figures 4to prove j
that under prohibition crime in Kansas
had increased prorata with the increase
in population, that tho number of govern-':
ment licenses, used by so-called drug
stores, had increased over 1,000, that the
population in many of the cities was de
creasing, that the real estate values had
been lowered and that the moral con
dition of the people had not been better
ed. He compared Kansas with Nebraska
and it must be said that the picture he
presented to the audience was very fav
orable to the latter state.
He commended the work of the
W. C. T. U. and all other tem
perance organizations and believed
they were doing a great and good work;
but in the light of past experience in
Kansas the adoption of a prohibitory
measure would not gain the end to
which temperance workers aspired that
of prohibiting the sale of intoxicating
Mr. Kelly is not what can be termed
an eloquent speaker, but he handled his
subject well and kept the attention of
his audience throughout the evening. '
Occupying chairs on the stage were a
number of our business men who advo
cate temperance but will vote against
the constitutional amendent, believing
that the Slocumb law is tho best meas
ure thatjiasyet been enacted by any
EARLY CLOSING OF BUSINESS HOUSES.
Eds. Tribune: Some peoplo are al
ways growling about something or other
and they growl the most when they
have nothing to kick about The last
one of these individuals is Borne sore
head kicking through the columns of
the Current because the stores do not
keep open until 8:30 p. m. We do not
know who the growler is but suppose he
is some person who was never in a city
and of course is unacquainted with the
way business is and should be conducted;
He has been accustomed to buying gooW
in some country .store where the faw
lives in me rear eou sou tuoy get UP
time in the night to' accommodate the
"Citizen" with a pound of nails or sugar.
Having been accustomed to this kind of
treatment, he feelB indignant because
he does not receive the same treatment
in North Platte. He says early closing
during the hot summer months is all
right, but at this time of the year it
won't do. The above statement shows
the quality of the brains possessed by
the poor unfortunate writer. How many
peoplo, do you think, do shopping at
night during tho cold winter?
You do not know of any one who waits
until night to do his or her trading.
The writer should wake up, shake the
dust from his brogans, brush the hay
seed from his clothes and remember
that he is in a city and not in the coun
try. Don't give your birth-place away
by making any more such remarks. You
ought to ring in with the editor of the
Current He made a kick a short time
ago about the good farmer trade North
Platte had in McPherson county. This
statement shows how much tho Current
knows about the matter.
Wo think closing the stores early dur
ing tho summer months is worse than
closing in winter, as the ladies do not
like to do their shopping during the hot
portion of the day. However, the stores,
closecPearly during the summer, and it
was a hot one, too, but we have not heard
of a lady who deprived herself of any
thing she wanted on account of those
hot summer days.
We know what you want, old kicker.
You want us to keep open so you .can
loaf in our grocery stores, oat our crack
ers and cheese and spit tobacco juice on
. , i il 1 Ml
our stove; out we aon c tmnK you win
get tho chance. We work thirteen hours
a day and think that plenty. If you
don't, just take our places a few .days
and you vil think the same as w'o do.
Our old reliable merchants all say that
business is as good if not better since
they began closing at seven o'clock than
it was before, and that they are perfectly
satisfied with the arrangement There
are several newcomers who are not fa
vorable to early closing but we believe
it will bo best in the end for them to
fall in line with the older merchants.

listening to an address by Hon W. H.
Dech, alliance candidate for lieutenant
governor, who denies the Jeff Davis
story, and also J. K. Stevens, alliance-
Democratic candidate for state senator.
Both gentlemen made good speeches
and I could find but little fault Thore
were but few present only fourteen
voters, threo Republicans, two Demo
crats and the balance doubtful. From
the picnic I went to Wellfieet, where the
Republicans were holding a caucus for
tho purpose of nominating a precinct
ticket I found some twenty-fivo Repub

confident that this fall Medicine pre
cinct would poll a largo Republican
vote. I nevor saw tho Republicans of

FIFTEEN TEARS IN HELL.
On Wednesday and Thursday evenings
of last week North Platte people were
privileged to listen to that great temper
ance apostle, Luther Benson, of Indian
apolis, Ind., and hundreds took advantage
of the opportunities. A full house
greeted him Wednesday night, and that
his efforts were appreciated was evident
from the frequent applause given. He
is noted for his eloquence and descriptive
powers, and the portrayal of hk past
life fifteen years in hell, as he is pleased
to term it had a visible effect as the
audience. Mr. Benson's description of
delirium tremens was true to life he
has had them himself and caused a
shudder to perambulate the backbone of
many of his listeners. He holds his
listeners spell-bound, and one could have
almost' heard the drop of a pin at any
time during the delivery of his lectures.
Before beginning his talks Mr. Ben
son requested that crying children be
removed from the house, explaining that
none loved babies better than himself,
but once when in the throes of tremens
for one whole night he had thought
himself stepping on the little innocents,
crushing their bones and hearing their
wails, and the cry of a child in his
audience so vividly brought to mind that
awful night that he could not bear to
Thursday evening an admission, fee of
ten cents was charged, and the crowd of
course was not so large as on tne pre
vious evening. Mr. Benson delivered
one of his best lectures, and it was well
Mr. Benson presented strong argu
ments in favor of the adoption of the
amendment, and his efforts were very
satisfactory to those who favor cold
water in preference to Tom and Jerry
and straight cocktails.
During his stay here he sold many
copies or ms book, ' inrteen lears m
