Bock from tho Irrigation Congress.
J. R. VanBoskirk has returned home
from Ogden where he has been in at
tendance at the Eleventh National Irri
gation congress. There were over sixty
delegates from Nebraska, the nearest one
to Alliance being S. D. Cox of Minatare.
Tho congress was a ereat success: the
Ogden people expected 500 but there were
2,000 strangers there. Practically all the
senators and congressmen of the mountain
states, were in attendance and many from
the east. The greatest address of the
session was made by Commander Booth
Tucker of the Salvation nrmy. The con
gress could not agree on recommending
the repeal of the commutation clause of
the Homestead acl, as also the Desert,
Timber and Stone acts. They compro
mised by recommending the government
to modify the existing land laws. The
next convention will be held at El Paso,
Texas. Irrigation has now grown from a
sectional to a national interest, nnd from
the enthusiasm manifested at Ogdt.n the
whole nation will grow to the irrigation
idea. The fruit display was bewildering
in its magnificence. Idaho got the Clark
loving cup. Utah had the largest display
and colors and sizes were right, but the
coddling moth infected the fruit.
Death of Mrs. Hickey.
The following account of the death of
Mrs. B. Hickey, mother of P. H. Dillon
of this place, is taken from the Vail (Iowa)
"At her home south of Vail, Tuesday,
September 8, at 4:25 p. m., occurred the
death of Mrs. B. Hickey, relict of P. II.
Hickey, after a short illness from apoplexy.
"Bridget Rourke Morgan was born in
the county of Kildaru, Ireland, seventy
years ago. When quite young she came
with her brother to this country, living in
New Jersey until she was married to
Thomas Dillon Feb. 11, 1855, after which
they came west, settled in Delaware
county, Iowa, about three miles south of
Delhi, where they lived until the death of
her husband, which occurred six yearn
after, by which she was left with four
small children. In 1862 she was married
to C. II. Hickey. Some time after they
moved to Milo township, where they lived
for a few years, when thev came to Craw
ford county and purchased the firm which
has since been their home. Mr. Hickey
died nineteen years ago, leaving three
sons with their devoted mother to mourn
his loss. More dutiful sous could scarce'.y
be found. Their love and respect has
been her comfort in her declining years.
Mrs. Hickey was a good Christian woman.
whose love lor her family, her church and
her neighbor was always manifest. She
lived a good lite, raised a most estimable
family, all respected in the communities id
which they reside. Her funeral, which
was very largely attended, was held from
St. Ann's church in Vail Thursday. Iler
pastor, Father Murphy, offered mass for
the repose of her soul, after which he
preached a most beautiful sermon, paying
a high tribute to the life and character of
the deceased. She leaves three daughter,
four sons and one step-daughter, all of
whom were present when she died, except
tne latter, who is in Omaha, lhey are
Mrs. J G. McNamara, Emmetsburg, P.
II. Dillon, Alliance. Neb.; Mrs. M. Y.
Kcane of Vail; Mrs. J. F. Keane of Ilart
ington, Neb.; James and Thomas who live
near Vail, and John who lived .with his
mother. Her step-daughter, Miss Ellen
Hickey, lives in Omaha. The sympathy
of a large circle of friends is extended to
them in their bereavement. May her soul
rest in peace."
Child Abandoned at Denver.
The following story, taken from the
Denver .Republican of last Monday, is of
interest to a number of Box Butte county
residents where Mrs. Trout, who figures in
the abduction, formerly resided;
"The mystery surrounding the discovery
of a three-week's-old baby in the Union
depot on the night of September n has
been cleared up by County Attorney
Heusch of Casper, Wyo., who, at the
police station yesterday, told a strange
story of a grandmother, who. hating "her
son-in-law, wrecked her hate on his inno
cent child by kidnapping it and abandon
ing to the tender mercies of whoever hap
pened to find it. County Attorney Heusch
says that the baby found in a starving con
dition is the child of Mr. and Mrs. William
Biggs of Casper, Wyo., and that it was
stolen from them by tlie maternal grand
mother, Mrs. Trout, who brought it to
this city, and, leaving it in the depot, re
turned home, denying all knowledge of its
whereabouts. Her motive, the Casper
official says, was revenge, and he also says
that had she not been an old woman she
would in all probability have been severely
dealt with by the enraged people of Cas
per when her act was discovered. The
woman will be prosecuted to the full ex
tent of the law. The child, whose real
name is Biggs, was found in an out-of-the-way
corner of the depot by Mrs. Samuel
Thomas, the matron, late in the evening
of September it. It was emaciated and
wan and plainly would have perishod if it
had not been discovered whon it was. At
tached to the child's dress was this note:
'Police Take boy to State Orphan's
home. His name is Leonard Trout.' No
other clew was found and the child was
sent to the home from which it will be
taken today, or restored to its father or
mother. From the story told by Mr.
Heusch Mrs. Trout's daughter married
William Biggs much to the anger of the
girl's family and especially her mother."
Surely Must be False.
Tom McComsey is "responsible for this
one: When he and his wife were return
ing from their eastern trip a Jew days ago
they were joined at Alliance by Mr. and
Mrs, A. J. Hampton and baby, who were
also returning from an eastern visit. When
they got on the train at Alliance the
Hampton baby had just commenced to
cut its first tooth, and when the train
finally pulled into Scotts Bluffs the little
one had a full set of pearly white teeth"
Tom vouches for the truth of the story,
and having known him many years we
have no reason to doubt it in the least

Paper Co., Omaha, was in Alliance last
