Deceased was but 27 years of age
and had been engaged in railroad work

time of his death secretary of the B. of

well as the citizens go out to the be
Election Next Tuesday.
Very little interest is being mani
fested in the coming city election for
the reason that the issues were settled
at the primaries when the nominations
were made. It being a citizen caucus
and only one ticket in the field there is
really no opposition to the election of
the ticket named there except in the
case of candidates for police judge.
Judge Barry aud A. F. Baldridge
were a lic at the primaries and both
names go on the ticket and to add in
terest, W. S. Ridgell has filed his
intention to be a candidate, with the
city- clerk and there will be a three
cprnared nice for the judgeship, with
tCbtrirwiiiT rehsoudbly certain of
success. The scramble for the place
is a friendly one, and any one of them
will take success or defeat with the
grace ofa patriot.
Some little complaint is heard from
some quarters because of only one
ticket but it comes from those who
want to sec the scramble on election
day. To remedy this in the future
there seems to be a growing demand
for party primaries at future elections,
and the direct primaries to select the
candidates for each. Then no man
will have a sure thing of election until
after election day. The advocates of
this plan say that now the primaries
settle the whole questiou and no elec
tion is really necessary.
1 Will Organize April 30.
Arrangements for the organization
of a councii of the order of Knights of
Columbus are well under way, and the
date set for the initiation is Sunday
April 30. The degree work will take
place at Zbinden's hall in the after
noon. It is expected that fully sixty
members wjll be taken into the oider
on that date several of whom will be
from out of town. Invitations have
been sent to- councils thoughout the
state and no doubt they will respond
by sending good delegation to take
part. The teams to do the work have
not as yet been selected, but it is very
likoly that Lincoln, O'Neill and Omaha
will furnish the same. Other organi
zations of the K. C.'s outside of the
state have also been invited to be pres
A BIG BARGAIN!
We have a corner lot in best residence portion

it at an astonishingly low price. We only ask $50

convenience. This lot is 50 by 1 50 feet, and is a
beautiful site for a home. There is no better
vacant residence property in the city, and its pur
chase would be an excellent investment for anyone.

the city, and it will sell quick. The first applicant

HOW TO GET TIIU MONEY.
It has been suggested that a grand
charity or hospital ball bo given on
"May day" May first for tho benefit of
the hospital fund. A movement is on
foot now to secure the Ft. Robinson
Military band and orchestra of twenty
eight pieces to furnish music for the
occasion. Each church organization
and each benevolent and frutcrnnl soci
ety in the city could give a nice dona
tion to the hospital fund and would
willingly do so as the object of those
institutions is charity, aud with what
can be secured as general subscription
the thing is done. The Herald will
publish tho program of tho soliciting
committee aud tho amounts subscribed
Every public spirited or charitably
inclined citizen of Alliance nnd the
adjoining counties are requested to see

be covered with a layer of straw to a
depth of six inches nnd then with three
inches of dirt, nnd allowed to freeze
solid before applying more straw and
dirt to protect the pit aud potatoes
during the worst weather. They should
then be left until wanted in the spring.
