Mr. Tom MoUartncy had Che pleas-
nre of showing his mother , who stop
ped off to BCC him on her way home
from San Francisco , and his beautiful
little neice around the city on Saturday.
He accompanied them as far as Indian
and remained there over Sunday.
The B. & M. band of Plattsmouth ,
Nebraska , passed through the city on
No. 1 , Tuesday evening , en route for
Denver and the mountains. This is
what is termed General Manager Hoi-
dredge's band , it being ' 'omposed of the
painters in the B. & bl. shops. They
were provided with passes and a special
car and seemed to be enjoying them
selves , They discoursed a couple of
beautiful pieces at our depot , and prom
ised to stop over a day in McCook on
their return. Our boys must prepare
to give them a suitable reception.
Work was resumed on the tank to
supply McCook with water on Satur
day last , and the indications are fail-
that it will be pushed until the water
works are completed. The completion
of the water system will give our little
city a now impetus , and will attract
strangers into our midst. It will be
but a short time until McGook will do
the largest business , and contain the
largest population in the valley. The
rapid growth of McCook , the enter
prise of her citizens , and the natural
beauty of her location are matters of
wonder to the strangers who daily get
off at the station. 3IcCook possesses
all the natural advantage necessary to
the growth of a large city , and there
can Le no doubt but that she will grow
at such a rate in the next two years
that her population will run up into
the thousands. Live , energetic men
are wanted here , and they will be warm
ly welcomed and well treated.
Tne Bridge Assured.
Pursuant to call in last week's TRIB-
UNK , the subscribers to the Bridge
Fund met at the office of J. B. Meserve
ou Saturday afternoon , and , after can
vassing the ground thoroughly , voted to
locate the bridge on the half section
line just south of the town. That
evening a party consisting of the Coun
ty Surveyor , the B. & M. Engineer and
J. E. Bergcr , went down to the river
and made a preliminary survey. They
found an eligible location about twenty-
five rods east of the line , with good
banks and approaches on both sides ,
and a distance of only two hundred and
seventy feet across. At the meeting
a commit'oe consisting of J. B. Me
serve and C. F. Babeock , was appoint
ed to go to Lincoln and confer with the
Lincoln Land Company. Mr. Meserve ,
of that committee , returned home on
Tuesday evening , and he stated to the
writer that there was every prospect of
the bridge being built at an early date ,
that the indications were fair that the
B. & M. Railroad Co. would build the
bridge , the absence of Mr. Holdredge
in Dakota leaving the question open ,
but that if the Railroad company could
not spare the men to build the bridge ,
it would haul the the timbers free. The
Lincoln Land Company also agreed to
increase their subscription $200 , if
necessary , and otherwise aid in its con
struction. Our readers will readily see
that the bridge is assured , and , ' the ad
vantages to be derived from it are so
many that we will not stop to particu
larize. _
A Fowl Assassination.
As a young man , connected with the
Train Despatches office in this city ,
was wending his way home on Monday
night , he was attacked b some un
known foe in a manner that threatened
his life. Knowing that self preserva
tion was one of the inalienable rights
of mankind , he quietly drew his weapon
pen of defense and with one blow , slew
his assailant. Remorse then capturing
his soul , he carried it into the B. &
M. Eating House , and the following
day he and the genial landlord dined
off of it. The query now is , was it one
of Mr. Sander's chickens , or did it be
long to somebody elsa.

The Htsiings Re-Union.
The G. A. R. re-uni < yi ut Hastings ,
last week , attracted the largest crowd
of the people that was ever in Adams
county at any time since its organiza
tion. The trains leading to that city
were crowded to their full capacity
from Monday until Thursday , with ex-
soldiers , civilians , w omen and children
The number of band * , too , which were
in attendance was wonderful , and the
sound of music never ceated. The
camp was pitched on a level plain
about two miles from the city , and the
snowy tents as seen when approaching
it presented a pleasing appearance.
The men and children , however , on the
broad avenues robbed it ot the marked
distinction of a military camp , and
many an old veteran remarked that it
was not much like war times. The at
tendance was variously estimated at
from thirty-five to sixty thousand people
ple , the larger majority of whom came
from Nebraska , but there was quite a
fair sprinkling from other states , some
few coming from as far as New York.
The B. & M. management sent 20,000
trip tickets from Hastings to the en
campment grounds , supposing that
would be sufficient. Thursday morning
the agent at that point was obliged to
re-issue 18,000 tickets , and ex'pressed
the opinion that 50,000 tickets would
be required before Saturday night ,
making the receipts for the plug train
$6,000. That the re union was a good
advertisement for Nebraska is patent ,
and a number of parties who came from
eastern states returned home to pack
up and move to prosperous Nebraska ,
where the willing workman can always
line his pockets with money.
The G. A. R. post at Indianola , un
der the command of C. D. Cramer ,
turned out in strength , and together
with the McCook Liirht Guard Band ,
represented Red Willow county in a
manner that was creditable to them
selves and the county.
The re-union itself was a success in
numbers , but there was a lack of en
tertainment which detracted from its
pleasures. A year ago at Grand Island
a great many of the prominent men of
the state , not a few of whom had polit-
icial aspirations , took an active part ,
and different ingenious means were tak
en to entertain the crowd ; this year that
element was missed , and the labor de
volved upon younaer men who lacked
the experience necessary to meet the
requirements of the occasion. The
action of the people of Hasting was far
from creditable. Instead of hospit
ably opening their doors , and endeav
oring to entertain the strangers they
had invited to come to their city , they
each one vied one with another to see
how much money they could fleece
from the crowd. The city officials also
showed their moial turpitude by allow
ing , gambling devices of various kinds
to be conducted openly on her streets
and in public places. Hastings has
made some money , but she has estab
lished a reputation that will be hard
to live down.

UNE to all persons whose names appear
