pletely over smashing things generally.

A Brilliant Reception.

at Sweetwater, Neb., Mr. Elldee J.

home in Alliance after December 1.
The home of Mr. and Mrs. E. C Hill

Mr. and Mrs. Swanson. One corner
of the purler was richly draped with
lace curtains underneath which, assist
ed by Rev. and Mrs. Ray, the newly

ber of fi tends present. Ice cream and
cake were served in the dinning room by
Miss jMnriau Lotspeich and Mrs. L.
E. Marks. Mr. and Mrs. Swanson

Mr. W. S. Wollard of York, is in the
city to solicit members sor Alliance
castle ot Royal Highlanders. The
charter is now open at half rate. There
are now 136 members here in good
standing, aim it is desired to increase
the number to 200, and to arrange for
the holding weekly meetings, with a
"social hour" after each meeting.
Both ladies and gentlemen are admitted
upon equal terms. The Highlanders
now have about one half million dol
lars deposited with the state of Ne
braska to secure its contracts. The
rates arc fixed and certain and its poli
cies provide protection in case of dis
ability or attaining old age, as well as
death, so its members do not "have to
die to win." It is a Nebraska organi
zation in which all Nebraskans may
well take pride as it already ranks first
of all American fraternal societies in
amount per capita of reserve funds, as
compared with liability, as shown by
the report of the Fraternal congress
recently held at St, Louis.
That Roosevelt Party was a Grand
Dr. Knight's Roosevelt party, which j
took place at the opera house Wednes
day night in honor of the Business
mens club and also to celebrate the
recent sweeping political victory, was,
as some of the boys who participated,
expressed it, "n cracker jack." It wns
just rr sweeping in pleasure as the
election was republican. Of the 150
guests present the doctor saw to it that '
every one enjoyed the Oceanian. The
only thing that bothers us is how Dr.
Knight can be a republican when in
other respects he is one of the kindest
and moat genial heartwl men we over
met. If he was only a democrat he
would be perfect, in fact a model innn
in every leaped. But as to the partv
he tendered the boys: It was held in
the Phelan opera house. The amuse
ment w,as dancing and enrds, with two
kinds of punches and light refresh
ments served in a pleasing manner.
The guests irres)ective of party lines
or political prejudice voted their
host a pleasing entaincr. Spnchts
orchestra enlivened the occasion with
Mr. and Mrs. G. L. Moffatt com
memorated the fifteenth anniversary of
their married life last Tuesday evening
by inviting one hundred of their friends
to join them in celebrating the event.
The social gathering took place at
Zbinden's hall and was indeed an affair
worthy the honor of these good peo
ple. Dancing and cards occupied the
pleasant moments of the quests, and
delicious refreshments added to the
pleasure of the occasion. A number
of beautiful prctints were presented
to the happy couple to commemorate
the occasion of their married life with
hearty wishes that they may live to en
joy many more anniversaries. Among
the presents were a cut-glass water set
from the G. R. A., cut-glass berry set
from the IL of L, E., cut-glass vase
from the Jolly t6 club. The out-of-town
guests present were Mrs. W. R.
Hitchins, Galesburg, 111., Miss Carter,
Pleasing Recital and Songs.
Last Tuesday evening the Ladies'
Guild gave a dramatic reading in the
spacious parlors of Mrs. Geo. W.
Clark's residence, in which Miss Mabel
Loukton Carter gave demonstrations of
her talent in oratory and expression.
She was favored with a large audience
and one that expressed its thorough ap
preciation of her skill as a reader
coupled with her rare attainments and
charming petsouality. Miss Carter's
selections were from the later poets of
the ceuturv and her interpretation and
rendition admirable. The program was
opened with a solo by Mrs. Hillabrand,
which was greatly appreciated by all.
Miss Carter was introduced to the
audience in "Trovers' First Hunt," by
Richard Harding Davis. His literature
js familiar, but those present Tuesday
evening were free to admit that they
had not known his humor or pungent
style until studied through one who has
lived in the Davia atmosphere. When
she came to Eugene Field in "Good
Bye God Bless You," and "The
Night Wind," wider scope for her effort
was given. J. Whitcomb Riley's "The
Happy Little Cripple" and "She Dis
plains It," were accurately delivered
with reference to the touch of pathos
Riley weaves everywhere. "If I Should
Die Tonight," by Ben King, was one of
those intensely close readings that
reach every heart. There were many
other selections in which the audience
was responsive and the reader strongly
applauded. Miss Wilheniine Bohn
sang two pleasing vocal solos that were
Coffee and wafers were served at the
close of the program.
Refuse to Pay Their Taxes.
The much boasted increase in rail
way taxation, which the republican
press pointed to with pride before the
election as one of its great acts, has
taken asudden change, now that the
election is over. All the roads in the
state have announced their intention
to refuse to pay the increased taxation
in every county in the state and as a
result the much boasted increased val
uation will not be collected without
litigation. In Box Butte county this
is no exception. Last Saturday a
representative of the B. & M. called
on County Treasurer Brennan and
presented a check for S7,ooo as pay
ment on the assessed taxation of that
road for $10,485.25, the ballance due
1 amounting to $3,485.25. to be contest
ed m the supreme court. Of course
the only alternate for Mr. Brennan
was to refuse the proposition. So
there you are. The voters can draw
their own conclusion as to which party
told the truth in the recent campaign.
Now what will the outcome be ? The
republican party has full control of
the state government with a governor
to back up its proceedings. Will they
make the corporations stand by the
laws of the state or not ? Time will
tell. Of course it is now too late to
cry over spilt milk, but we'll venture
the assertion that more than one voter
who cast his ballot for the element
that was victorious at the last election
will regret it. If the railways succeed
in dodging this obligation, it will mean
a loss of many thousand dollars in the
state treasury. How many individuals
could do the like ?
