Mr. Reck Awarded Contract.
Alliance has reason to feel proud of the
success attained by its contractors and
builders who have won merited praise
throughout the state as experts in their
line of business. The latest achievement
is that made by S. C. Keck, who was
awarded the contract for building the new
court house at Eushville. The contract
price of Mr. Reck was $17,325, or $27 less
than the'next lowest bid. There were si
bidders in all. Three from Omaha, one
from Arlington and the other from Chad
ron The new court house in the contract
is described as follows:
The basement of the building is to be of
stone, the b..lRice of tho structure Alliance
Pressed Brick Co's brick, with galvanized
cornices and trimmings, and window sills
to be of Hot Springs sandstone. The size
is to be 40x6s feet with wing 34x52 feet.
The entrance tower is to be 12 feet square
and 40 feet high. The building will be
two stories and basement, the basemeut
being fitted for heating, coal supply and
with sanitary conveniences. The county
offices will be provided with four separate
vaults some of which extend from the base
ment to the second story. The court room
provided for will be 40x68 feet in size.
The building is to be completed by Dec
ember first and Mr. Reck has already set
nbout the commencement of tho work,
which will be pushed forward with all
possible speed. ,
The Western Publisher of Chicago in its
issue for this month reproduces several
pictures from our special edition including
tho interior view of the Herald office and
the half-tone of the publisher and his
assistant, several ranch views and the
hunting scene of Miss Ina Bellwood. In
speaking of the special edition the Pub
Talk about your special numbers! The
April 8th issue of the Alliance, (Neb.) Her
ald was certainly one of the greatest finds
that ever came out of our mail bag. It
wss replete with thrilling and enterpris
ing matter, from Indians and cowboys to
new city blocks. If T. J. O'Keefe and his
assistant editor. J. B. Kniest, overlooked
anvthingof interest in that portion of the
state, it hasn't been anything bigger than
a pinhead in Wind Cave. There are
twenty pages and a cover," and there's joy
to the reader on every page! Long, long
years from now this special will be dug up
to show with pride what Alliance was
"away back in 1904."
The Omaha corespondent of the West
ern Publisher says:
"The Alliance Herald's Industrial Edi
tion, in preparation for many weeks, was
given to the public about the middle of
April, and one does not have to closelv
examine its twenty large pages without
the cover to readily determine that a vast
amount of labor and expense has been
bestowed upon the publication. The title
page, in colors (''Alliance in 1888.") is a
production of rare beauty, and is sure to
attract attention wherever seen. It is a
representation of Indians mounted on
bronchos viewing passage of a railroad
train in the distance, and brings vividly to
mind the condition and surroundings of
that section of Nebraska less than two
decades ago. In all of the pages abound
illustrations, some of them very fine and
generally of a character to invite attention
and study. Among them may be men
tioned ranch scenes, the city of Alliance
in 190, Belmont tunnel on the B. & M.,
Red Cloud, the famous ex-chief of the
Sioux, the Custer battlefield, etc., etc.
All are accompanied with a well planned
and well executed writeup. In the mat
ter of souvenir editions the palm must be
awarded to the Alliance Herald, for it is
difficult to see how what has been wrought
could be improved upon. It bells for 25
cents per copy, and is well worth the
price of any man's .money.

The Junior Normal.
Superintendent W. II. Bartz has every
arrangement made for the forthcoming
Junior Normal, which begins in this city
next week. Judging from the number of
rooms engaged and other provisions made
by the prospective students, the session
will be well attended. While the normal
last year had a greater scope of territory
to draw from, as Sheridan county held no
institute, which it will this year, the at
tendance from the immediate section sur
rounding Alliance promises to be larger
than ever. The lecture course, which will
take place during the normal is looked for
ward to with great anticipation and we be
lieve there is a vast amount of good knowl
edge and pleasure in store for everyone
Takes Second Place.
First Asssitant Postmaster Wynne has
notified Postmaster Tash of the advance
ment ef theAlliance postoffice to second
place, to take effect July 1, According to
the new order of things another clerk can
be installed at the office and the salary of
the postmaster will be increased somewhat.
The receipts of the Alliance postoffice dur
ing the past six months have increased to
such an extent that this advancement by
the department was anticipated. Alliance
is the third place in this district to be
elevated to second place and those who
have felt that limes were so bad hero in
the past can now rolled that there .ire
other towns faring a great deal worse. The
business done at a postoffice is usually a
good criterion as to how the town in which
it is located is progressing.

Cur in Alliance.
A novel piece of
tion in tho way of an
mspection car litis
been attracting the attention of railroad
mcu dowu at the shops the past few days.
The car is built to the head end of a loco
motive. In general appearance it re
sembles a motor car. The purpose of this
odd looking combination is for inspecting
the roadbed and general surroundings ot
the lturliugton right-of-way to tho best ad
vantage. The car is built close to the
track, so that every rail and lie can bo in
spected without hindrance. The interior
is the perfection of mechanical neatness
and skill and affords almost all the com
forts of a buffet car. Engineer J. P. Cox
who lias charge of it, built the car after a
design drawn by Superintendent E. Big
nell, at the Havelock shops, and it is quite
a feather in the young man's cap as a ma
chinist. Mr. Cox has complete control of
the train, which, besides the locomotive,
carries two and some times three coaches.
He sits on an easy, cushioned seat beside
that of Superintendent Calvert, and has
the throttle, steam, air and sand gauges at
his control and as handy as a pocket in a
shirt. The fireman is stationed in the
cab to the rear and lias nothing to do but
shovel in coal and keep up steam. Mr.
Cox sees to the running of the locomotive
at the head end and communicates with
the fireman by means of whistle signals.
The car is lit throughout by electricity
generated from a dynamo located in the
engine cab. Even the headlight is so pro
vided. Superintendent Calvert has been
making a thorough inspection of the Bur
lington system. He went over the entire
southern system and last week went as far
north on this sectiou as Newcastle. This
week Mr. Cox is taking his distinguished
guest over the Denver branch, This in
spection car wasbuilt at Havelock and is
the only one of the hind iu this country.
It is a little palace on wheels.

Mr. aud Mrs. Patrick Nolan suffered
the loss of their baby girl, Bene, who died
this forenoon at 11 '30, after several days'
illness with measles and pnedmonia.
Marie, the three-year-old daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Nolan is also ill with similar ail
ments aud serious apprehensions are felt
as to her condition. The many friends of
the family will join in the prayer that the
life of the little girl may be spared and tho
heavy burden that now weighs down upon
the parents be lined.
Moses Wright departed last Monday on
41 for an extended trip in the northwest
and will look the country over with the in
tention of finding a location that will suit
him and his family. Mr. Wright is one of
Box Butte's most substantial and prom
inent residents and we will all regret his
departure Hut he is not yet gone in the
sense of leaving for good and we hope he
will return satisfied to end his days in the
bosom of his friends who are legion.
The Commoner, Mr. Bryan's paper, in
its last issue takes occasion to refer to the
Special Edition recently issued by The
Herald, ina most complimentary manner.
It says. "The Alliance Herald's Illus
trated Edition was one of the handsomest
special editions ever issued in the west. It
was a credit to its publisher, T. J. O'Keefu.
a handsome advertisement of Alliance and
the northwest, and a striking sample of
western enterprise and push."
Henry Homan, deputy United States
marshal, was here from Omaha yesterday
for the purpose to subpoena witnesses in
the case of W. R. Lessor, former special
agent for Uncle Sam, who is charged with
making false reports. Mr. Homan left last
night for Mullen where he will subpoena
witnesses in a fencing case.
Clarence Arkansas New was 6 years old
last Wednesday and iu order to observe
the event properly invited a number of his
friends to join him in a birthday party.
The little ones had a gay time and they
feel as if Clarence ought to have two or
three birthdays a year, they had such a
good time on this occasion.
The birthday party which Julia Frankle
was to have celebrated Saturday has been
postponed on account of sickness.
Death of Engineer Frcclnnd.
After several days of anxious waiting
and with a hope that filled tho hoarts of
hundreds of friends, that was only to bo
blasted, Engineer Robert Freeland who
together with his fireman, D. B. Aultx,
was fatally scalded In his engine at Edge
monl a week ago last Sunday, died at tho
sisters' hospital In Deadwood Wednesday
morning, whero ho was taken after the ac
cident. Mr. Freeland showed indications
of rapid recovery from his severe scalds
and just as his friends were rejoicing that
his life would bo spared, word came from
tho hospital of a relapse and in a few hours
tho Injured man passed away. Ho was
surrounded by his wife and children also
his brother, Dr. J. T. Freeland who hur
ried to his bedside from Bedford. Ind
The remains were brought to this city on
No. 42 yesterday and met by a delegation
of engineers of tho brotherhood who took
charge of affairs and saw to it that all that
was earthly of their brother was tenderly
conveyed to tho home ho loft only a short
timo since in perfect health aud with a
The funeral will, take place this after
noon from tho M. E, church, and tho ser
vices conducted by Rev. jeflers of the
Baptist church, the remains interred in
Deceased was 42 yenrs of age, being
born in Knot county. Indiana, lie was
married to Miss Alico Pearson of Lincoln,
twelve yoars ago, to whom was born four
children. Mr Freeland followed the
occupation of railroading iu various
capacities for the past fifteen yoars. The
past two years tins beeu spent as engineer
on this division during which time he aud
his family have resided in this city, nt
present the home is in Simensou'a addi
tion. J. W, Freeland, a nephew of the
deceased arrived from Ravenna yesterday
to attend the funeral.
In the death of this man the people of
Alliance realiie that a noble life litis pasted
away. One that was after the image of
the ideal, as near as a human mind can
understand. While the sudden taking
away of Eugineer Freeland is the lacerat
ing of tho heartstrings not only of his
good wife and the little ones he loved so
well but to every one who know hint yet,
there is something so grand In the life he
led that we cannot but repeat the old say
ing. "Well done thou good and faithful
servant, enter thou into the kingdom of
thy Lord." Surely he who loved his little
family with all the tenderness of his good
heart will in return receive the same con
sideration from his Creator who never for
sakes those of his flock. While in a
worldly way, the home has been made
desolate through this unfortunate acci
dent, let it be remembered by the wife
and children that he has left them a legacy
in his honorable character that will be to
them as a beacon light in this vale of tears
as they journey on to that mysterious
realm, that far-off home to which he was
first called. And to the grand order ot
railway engineers let us say that in the
death of Robert- Freeland they have lost a
member whose life will be a fit example to
fo'low. Clean, honorable, and as bright
as the noonday sun. Let them remember
that though dead to this world his career
will live on and his name will be spoken
with affection in every household.
The same true words of respect express
the life of Fireman D. B. Aultz who with
Mr. Freeland met his death iu this acci
dent. Never in the history of railway ac
cidents has the writet been called on to
chronicle an instance of this nature where
two such honorable men, devoted to their
families and homes, went down to death
under such tragic and pathetic circum

The following dispatch from Cripple
Creek, Colo., states that twelve miners
were instantly killed and eight or ten
others badly injured by an explosion that
occurred after midnight Sunday at the
Independence station of the Florence and
Cripple Creek railroad, The tragedy ap
parently was the result of a dastardly plot
against the nou-uuiou miners on, the night
shift at the Surtloff, Findlay and Lost Dol
lar mines, who had just finished work and
were about to return to their homos. The
men had no warning of their impending
fate. The explosion occurred beneath the
platform on which they were standing,
hurling many of them high into the air,
destroying the adjoining depot asd rending
a great hole in the earth.
