Just for a social time this winter the
Anong club was organized recently. This
club comprises about a dozen of the popu-j
lar young girls of Alliance, namely: Min
Morris, Delia Weber, Mayme O'Donnell,
Rose Trumble, Agnes Morris, Nora Lam
mon, Belle Smith, Anna Wills, Rose
Howard, Anna O'Conner, Bertha Hamil
ton and Clara Hardiug. The club will
meet once a week' at different member's
houses and be entertained informally.
They attended the play, "Shore Acres,"
last night, chaperoned by Mrs. A. Lind
quist. A special train passed through this city
this forenoon carrying the following
officials of ihe B. & M. railroad: C. E
Perkins, president of the board of direc
tors; Mr. Harris, general superintendent;
G. W. Holdrege, general manager; C. F.
Manderson, general attorney, and Mr.
Miller and several others of less note.
While here the officers met an old friend
in Dr Collins, who was asked what sort of
crops were raised here. The doctor told
them that "spuds" were trumps and there
wasn't another locality that could show up
such a fine quality. As most of the officers
were from Missouri, they had to be shown,
so a sack or two of Box Butte murphies
were dumped in the dining car and the
visitors will have an opportunity of being
convinced in a most practical manner.
The officers were on a tour of inspection
and will also visit Denver before return
ing to Lincolu and Omaha.
A score of fellows felt so happy over the
result of the election Tuesday night that
nothing but bon fires and speeches would
satisfy their enthusiasm, After piling up
a minature mountsin of boxes, etc., well
adapted for a conflagration that could be
seen for blocks, the enthusiasts called on
Ira Reed, Sam Smyser, Judge Spacht,
Win, Mitchell, the editor and others and
compelled them to join the host in the
grand celebration soon to take place. It was
like pulling teeth for the boys to crawl out
but there was no alternate and they made
their appearance only to be hustled off to
the scene of action. A torch soon set the
mountain of inflamable matter afire and
while the flames leaped skyward, songs
were sung, speeches made, and a general
jollification indulged in.

FATAL FIGHT WITH INDIANS.
Sheriff Miller and Deputy Folkenburg
Killed in the Skirmish.
The many Alliance friends of Sheriff
Millet of Newcastle were grieved to learn
of the untimely death of that popular of
ficer and his 'trusty deputy sheriff, which
event took place last Saturday afternoon
between the sheriff's posse and a band of
Crow Indians on Lightning creek, near its
junction with the Cheyenne river, Wyom
ing. According to first reports, the Indians
were violating the game law and killing
cattle on the range. Sheriff Miller went
out and warned the Crows to desist fronf
such depredations but the Indians only
laughed at the officer's request and con
tinued their offense. This brought forth a
poss: of fifteen men, with Sheriff Miller
and Deputy Sheriff Palkenburn in com
mand. The Indians, who were about 150
strong, showed fight and it was .not long
before posse and Crows were in mortal
combat. The fight lasted till dark when
the redskins drew off and made for the
hills. On the battle field lie the two
sheriffs mortally wounded and who died
within a short time. Two others of the
posse were slightly injured while it is re
ported that six Indians were killed and ten
wounded. The fight took place about
forty-five miles north of Lusk. Eagle
Feather and Black Kettle resisted arrest
and brought on the row. Sheriff Miller
was shot through the left thigh and died
within half an hour. Black Kettle was
killed at the first fire and Eagle Feather
fell with bullets through both legs and
died the next day. The bodies of Miller
and his deputy were taken to Newcastle,
Monday a posse started out from Edge
moni and succeeding in capturing twenty
of the Indians on Hall creek. The Indians
prepared for a fight, but the Indian
.policeman, Charley Black Elk, went to
them and after a talk of two hours the In
dian; mounted their horses and gave up
their guns and asked to be taken to Edge
mont. From there they were taken to
Douglas, where they will be held for trial.
According to information obtained from
the Indians, they insist that they were not
guilty of the misdemeanors charged and
therefore took the stand they did.
The tragic death of Sheriff Miller is to
be deplored, for he was one of the most
fearless officers in the west, who never
shirked his duty and was respected by all
his associates. It was only a few days ago
that Miller was in this city calling on
his old friends, among them Sheriff Reed.
The deep-laid mystery surrounding the
Hallowe'en party that took place in this
city has finally come to light and it is now
plain to be seen that all the tortures of
"riding the goat" is boy's play compared
to the ghastly ''degrees" that the guests
were compelled to undergo on this occasion
at the house of mystery, 702 Cheyenne
avenue. Here the "Wierd Sisters" held
forth and here in the gloaming the guests
were escorted to the infernal regions below
where the eyeless skull of a departed soul
grinned at the trembling form of the un
nerved. Oh, what ghastly visions in a
closet dark startled the guests. Here
fortunes wereUold, riddles expounded and
other pleasantries indulged in. But every
dark cloud has a silver lining and after
the ghostly trial had passed, the guests
were made happy with social passtime of
a more pleasant nature during which re
freshments consisting of cider and ginger
cake and other delicacies restored the
shattered constitutions. This novel Hal
lowe'en party was given by Miss Ina Bell
wood, Miss Kate Du (field, Miss Fay Van
Boskirk, Miss Kate Bogee and Miss, Bess
Comity, Nov. 3, 1903.

The presentation of the popular drama,
Shore Acres, by local talent, under the
personal direction of Edgar A. Martin,
took place tit tlie Phelan opera house last
night before a largo and appreciative
audience- that bhowed. by Its outburst of
applause appreciation of every character.
Wlien it is considered that only a short
time was given to rehearsals horcsulto
Mr. Martin's work speaks well for him and
also for his students. It is not overesti
mating their ability to state that their act
ing was far better than that of many so
called professionals. J. B. Miller as Nat
Berry was all right throughout the entire
play. Mr. Miller had a clear conception
of the character he assumed and carried it
out without the least timidity of stage
fright that usually overcomes the novice.
AVe are inclined to bel'evu that J. B.'a
experience before crowds as a political
speaker in previous campaigns gave him
confidence. But if the audience came
near splitting its sides laughing it was
when Jobe Gales, the grass widower, in
the person of Sam Smyser, appeared.
Nature evidently built Sam for this par
ticular character and he seemed to ap
preciate the honor for he too acted his
part well and his side issues in reference
to the candidate's "glad hand" before
election brought down the house. Guy
Lockwood as Josiah Gales, postmaster and
I storekeeper, had perhaps the most difficult
character in the cast to assume. The very
nature of Josiah Blake is one that does not
take well with an audience and Guy bore
this odium gracefully and with skill. Glen
Hampton in the role of Sam Warren, a
young physician, in love with Nell Berry,
proved a success, but we hope the young
man will find no offense when we assert
that his natural decorum and graceful
gestures made him an ideal subject fortius
character. And let us add that the same
may be said of Miss Bernice Kridlebaugh
as Nell Berry. The two characters com-i
pose the central figures in the play and
these were neatly acted. Master Sweeney
as Young Nat Berry, the school boy, por
trayed this character in a manner that
showed study and tact. Martin Berry,
owner of Shore Acres and keeper of the
Berry lighthouse, was assumed by Edgar
A. Martin in his faultless manner, and he
was ably supported by Mrs. F. W Ray
mond as Ann Berry, Martin's wife and
mother of the Berry children. Perlie, Mrs.
Berry's hired girl, found a good represen
tative in the person of Miss Hiller. And
no little praise is due the little girls who
assisted in making the production of Shore
Acres the success it proved to bs.
Mr. Martin has arranged to put another
play upon the stage in this city
Thanksgiving evening which is titled "The
New Dominion." It is a cast replete with
humor and interesting situations and one
that will please all. Mr. Martin is
familiar with everything pertaining to
stage work and with the time at his com
mand will give the theater going people of
Alliance a rare treat on the date above
John J. Adams, the compc nt and pleas
ant foreman at the B. & M. shops, tend
ered his resignation at this place recently
to go to Havelock. He is succeeded by
William Moulton, an employe of the shops
here and one ot Alliance's most worthy
and competent young men. Tub Herald
is pleased to announce the appointment of
Mr. Moulton to this important position. '

KILLED BY THE .CARS.
Conductor Richards Meets with
Sudden Dooth at Newcastle.
A telegram from Newcastle was received
last Monday in this city conveying the
news of the serious accident which befell
conductor Volmcy Richards In the rnllraid
yards at that place that morning. The
report of tho accident was soon spread
about town and the man's popularity
seemed to be the cause of a spontaneous
outburst of grief. Even sturdy men, ac
customed to tho hard knocks of life, who
know the kind-hearted conductor, when
they learned the shocking nature of the
accident, could scarcely crowd back the
tears ot sorrow for their unfortunate
brother, for his manly character had made
friendship with all.
According to reports received from New
castle, Conductor Richards was engaged
in the yards nt that place In switching and
while on the top of a box car was thrown
to the track with the result that three cars
passed over him, mangling him in such a
manner that tho unfortunate man died
a tow hour later. The remains were
brought to this city the same day and
taken to the family residonce in South Al
liance. Tho funeral took place yesterday
at the home of tliu deceased and war. largely
attended. Rev. .letters of the Baptist
church officiated and paid a fine tribute
to tho character. of the deceased. Inter
