A very pretty wedding took place at
Aurora Thanksgiving day, at high noon,
when Charles T. Hamilton and Miss Jennie
Crosby were joined in holy wedlock by
Rev. Erst of the Lutheran Evangelical
church. The wedding was largely attended.
Mendelssohn's weddiug march was played
by Miss Bertha Hamilton. The groom is
the son of Mr. and Mrs R. B. Hamilton of
this city and a successful young railroad
man. His bride wan a popular young lady
of Aurora Mr an J Mr Hamilton arrUed
in the nt t' i r " iln iml wi'l romrnnoe
housekeeping in their own heme in the
north part of the city.
The future of Alliance is just whnt the citizens of Alliance
elect to make it, Men are the arbiters of their own destiny, and
what is true of men is equally true of cities. Alliance is fortu
nately situated in that it is the largest city in n radius of srvetal
hundred miles and possessor of railroad facilities that offer splen
did advantages. The natural resources of this section of country
are not such ns lend encouragement to manufacturing industries,
although there are a number of small manufactures that coutd
profitably he carried on hero. But it is as a distributing point that
Alliance occupies a favorable field. Allianco should bo the cen
tral distributing point for all the vast amount of goods used in the
country north, south and west of hero on the lines of the Burliuf
ton road and the Elkhorn road that crosses the Burlington line.
Groceries, boots and 6hoes, harness, hardware, glass, hats and
caps, clothing, drug sundries, confectionery and the hundred and
one articles of wholesale commerce should be-jobbed by Alliance
This is not a dream, fellow. citizens. Other towns with far
inferior facilities and location have built themselves up into strong
municipalities by seizing upon" every advantage offered, no matter
how small It might seem. The first thing to do is to convince men
of capital that Alliance affords these opportunities. There are
many was of accomplishing this, but the best and quickest wny is
to organize a live board of trade and secure the services of u sec
retary who knows his business, and knowing it hns tho industry
to work at it. Alliance has enough retail establishments to tako
care of all the trade that exists now or may exist for several years
to come, but there is plenty of , room for several wholesale estab
lishments. A city may bo talked up, or it may be talked down, It is
civic pride and loyalty that made Chicago and Kansas City. A
Chicago man never misses an opportunity to boast of his city's
wonderful progress, and a Kansas City man talks about the vil
lage at the mouth of the KaW as long as ho can find listeners, and
even then he talks to himself.
Brethren and friends, let us begin talking for and about Alli
ance. Let us offer proof of our own confidence in tho f utui o of
Alliance. Let us work for the future of the city and surrounding
country. And let us begin without further loss of time.

TIIU ORATORIO, "QM'XN ESTHER."
Is Pluycd to Good Houses With Great1
Credit to tho Players.
Alliance has many people of undeniable
ability in the line of public entertainment,
as has been shown from time to time in
dhe plays and other entertainments given
by them; bui their master effort was puf
forth in the rendition of "Esther, the
Beautiful Queen" at the opera house last
Friday and Saturday evenings, and the
result was the best with one possible
exception, ever given by home talent.
All the leading parts were sung by those
having exceptionally good voices. Mr.
Bixler as the King of Persia, B. V. Reeves
as Haman, Judge Spacht as Mordecai, and
S. M. Smyser as high priest not only sang
the parts to perfection but looked them
and acted them, too. The same also can
be said of Miss Frew as Esther, Miss Duo
can as Zeresh, Haman's wife, Miss Mc
Corkle as Mordecai's sister, and Mrs.
Fleming as the prophetess. Little Julia
F rankle as Ida, Haman's child, has doubt
less received more compliments than any
other player in the oratorio. She took her
part so artlessly and played it so naturally,
besides which, work well done in that line
by a child excites more admiration than
work equally well done by grown-up folk.
The chorusses of Jews, Persians and chil
dren Bhowed careful training and selection
and the costuming was elegant. Most of
the costumes wero made here, only the
royal robes and garments of that sort being
furnished by Mr. Bixler.
The opera house was well filled both
nights. About $185 was cleared and the
high school is therefore assured of being
the possessor of a piano in the near future,
The undertaking was Mr. A G. Bixler's
and that gentleman shows great ability in
selecting, arranging and training those re
quired for the cantata, more than sixty
being required for It. Ho was most ably
assisted in this by Superintendent Bartz,
to whose work in training and arrange
ment and as stage manager much of the
smoothness in the presentation was due.
We have been unable to get the names
of the children who assisted, but among
those taking part were Messrs. Perry,
Ufford, Muirhead, Morris, Duncan, Smy
ser, sr.. Srayter, jr., Englehorn, Hays,
McAllister, Constable, Fritts, Cantwell,
Madsen, Reeves, Spacht and Bixler;
Mesdames Stoner, Johnson, Quivey, Mor
ris, Hamilton, Fleming and Graham, and
the Misses Darling, Hicks, Smith, Buech
senstein, Duncan, Frew, Frankle, Hamil
ton, Swan, Fritts, Bellwood, Willas, Miller,
Contraman, Young, Reck. McCorkle, I.ot
speich, Snyder, Beck and Wehn, and Miss
Bernice Kridelbaugh, pianiat. ,
lllxby und .Mnupln.
The Crete News says. "An Ollort is
being made to get Bixby and Maupin for
an evening in Crete. If this is miccewful
every one will want to hear them and the
opera house will be. too small to hold the
audience. They are the only pir in Ne
braska. They nrs oqual to a full house
any time." Ye. Uro. Bcwlby, they make
a strong team and the Hskm.i extends

their reception here.

academy team and Alliance high school
boys was not quite so evenly divided as to
IWPpWM?6 "right Jve.. led. the
score at the finish of the last half being 44
to o in favor of the visiting team. Our
boys have shown the "nover-say-die" spirit
about it and say they will keep on practic
ing until they make their friends proud of
them and their opponents afraid of them,
which is commedable, to be sure; but the
boys have not diagnosed the case correctly.
The writer begs pardon for those words of
unsought advice and explanation. It Is
not practice. It is added length of hair.
We don't pretend to know the reason but
it is a fact that a football player to amount
to shucks must have a head that, when he
is under full sail, look like an overgrown
Russian thistle. It may be that the fero
cious appearance this gives him has some
thing to do with it. Anyway, there's
nothing like "Absalomic" locks for success
in this game. Padded pants, knee pro
tectors and skull crates are not in it with a
good shock of hair and just there is where
our boys fell down. They didn't have iL

ronians, until time shall have undone the
nefarious work of the Alliance barber and

they'll be a match for anything that ever

A special dispatch to the World-Herald,
November 26, says: Daniel C. Regan,
Burlington agent at Lead, and Miss Mary
Louise, daughter, of Mr. and Mrs. Richard
Blackstone of Central City, were married
at St. John's Episcopal church in Dead
wood today. The wedding was largely at
tended and was one of the most fashionable
held in Dead wood in years.
Owing to the prominence of the princi
pals a great deal of interest had been taken
and several anti-nuptial functions had been
held. They were married by Archdeacon
George G. Ware, and following the wed
ding a reception was held at the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Blackstone, The young
couple left for Denver, intending to spend
their honeymoon visiting various Colorado

For some time past rumors have been

A "petition has been circulated among the
business men of tho city by Mr. Tultle,
partner of Mr. Tosh, asking for tho lattera
appointment. The Herald does not know
what charges havo been preferred against
Mr. Montgomery. Certain it is that his
fealty to tho republican party cannot bo
questioned, as cannot that of Mr. Tash.
There nre some republicans who would be

While an Allianco citizen stated publicly
last night that he had received word from
Omaha that Tosh was sure to be appointed,
yot The Herald believes there is still tlmo
for a big scrap. Mr. Tash has good sup
port and is probably holding "three aces,"
but Mr. Montgomery may yet flash up a
"full houso" and retain his hold on the
"jack pot." It matters very little to The
Herald who is postmaster, so long as the
official is capable, nnd we a?o not worry
ing over the outcome. However, it our
republican brethren will pardon a sugges
tion, wo will say that in case neither Mr.
Montgomery or Mr, Tash are acceptable,
what's tho matter with looking around for
some other good man. There's Captain
Sweeney, Judge Wilcox, Al Wlker, Editor
Ellis, Smith P, Tuttlo and a score of other
republicans who might be persuaded to
sacrifice their personal business for the
public good. Tho Herald has oaly one
regret, viz that It cannot creato cuough
offices for all the faithful republicans.
