Prominent Youn9 People Marry.
A beautiful wedding ceremony in which
two prominent and popular young people
were united in the holy bonds of matri
mony occurred at Holy Rosary church in
this city yesterday morning, tha parties to
the sacred contract being Mr. John J.
Lawless and Miss Anna Kinney. Rev,
Father Galvin officiated. The Christian
spirit that prevails at a nuptial of this kind
is inspiring and it is the safeguard of the
human family. Thin blessing was evident
in this instance and the happy couple who
entered the patli of life's journey hand in
hand were the recipients of fervent pray
ers from the many people present at the
nuptial mass. The groom is well known
in western Nebraska, having been for sev
eral years a trusty .engineer ou the Bur
lington, making his home in this city, but
at present located at San Bernardino. Cali.,
where he holds a similar position on the
Southern Pacific railway. Mr Lawless is
well to do and through his own efforts has
accumulated goodly portions of the world's
goods, but better than this he possesses an
honorablo name. The bride too is a
person of commendable character and her
kindness and womanly bearing have drawn
many friends to her. Mr. and Mrs, Law
less will make their home in California,
and with them will go the best wishes of
their mariy Alliance friends.

" Buffalo Bill," the notorious Indian
fighter and hero of dime novel fame
and whose name is being perpetuated
in the public mind in later years by
his efforts to unshackle himself from

at the depot Wednesday noon. The
bid wariior in company with several
others, including a buck Sioux Indian,
were passengers on their way to Cody,
where they will meet a party that will
go to the Big Horn mountains for a
hunt. In an interview "Buffalo Bill"
expressed himself as follows: "I was
never in finer health than I am now.

E. C. Harris, a Chndrou banker and
ex-superintendent of the Not th western

Their mission here was in the interest

The lepublican press is trying to
show the iniquttious revenue law is not
such n bad thing for the tax payers in
this county. But it is difficult to ex
plain. Personal interviews with many
tax payers throughout the county who
have personally investigated for them
selves prove conclusively that taxes arc
almost iuvaiinhly higher than in pre
vious years. And it is useless for tho
fnkery to try to bewilder the tax payers
with meaningless columns of figures.
It is a self evident fact that the last
legislature appropiialed sixteen hun
dred thousand dollars more than had
ever been appropriated by anv pre
ceding legislature and all attempts-at
explanation will prove of no avail.
Tun Herald solicits every tax payer
to investigate the matter for himself.

Attempted Hold Up. u
A telegram from Cody, Wyo., of
last Tuesday gave the following ac
count of an attempted holdup of the
bank at that place, in which Cashier
Middaugh, well known in this city,
was killed. The telegram says:
"An attempt to rob the First Nation
al bank of this city at 3:30 this after
noon resulted in the immediate death
of Cashier I. O. Middaugh. Two arm
ed men who have been hanging around
this town some months rode up to the
batik on horsenack and entered it at
the front door. They were not mask
ed or disguised. When tliev brdered
the cashier and his assistant to throw
up their hands they were answered by
these plucky officials with shots from
two six-shooters. The firing became
so hot that the robbers left the hank
without securing any money. Cashier
Middaugh followed them to the street
and attempted to stop them by empty
ing his six-bhootcr at them, whereupon
the smaller of the two men shot Mr.
Middaugh in the breast killing him in
stantly. In the meantime the town
became aroused and shots , were fired
at the robbers from every corner.
They returned the fire, shooting at
every one they saw on the streets and
finally succeeded in mounting their
horses and riding awaj over the hill to
the southwest quickly followed by about
twenty armed and mounted men.
Deputy Sheriff Jeff Chapman was in
the lead and word comes into town
that he took a shoit cut through a
field, and six shots wcro heaid a few
moments ago. It is expected that the
robbers will surely be takon. A large
reward has already been offered by
the citizens of Cody for thoir capture
