Barry's Saloon and "Tito Right"
Clothing Store Broken Into
and Pillaged No Ar
rests So Far.
Sunday morning about 5 o'clock the
sound of breaking glass was heard in
the rear of Ed Barry's saloon, but no
attention was paid to it. But on Mon
day morning when the place was open
ed, it was found "that some miscreant
who had no regard for the Sabbath or
the property of Mr. Barry, had broken
into the place and tapped the till, tak
ing S12.40 in cash. No other goods
wore missed and it is believed that the
thief only wanted the casli in the reg
ister. Barry has the man "spotted"
who he thinks did the job and it will bo
well for the fellow to fight shy of Bar
ry's place. The thief broke a glass
in the rear of the place through which
he came and went.
At an early hour yesterday morning,
thieves broke one of the big windows in
the rear of "The Right" clothing store
of Beckwith and Brcsee and carried off
enough goods to start a habberdashcry
store. No positive clue has been found
to the perpetration of the crime, but it
is believed that a trio of traveling "yeg
men" were the fellows who did the job.
Entrance as well as egress was effect
ed through a rear window and the
stuff carried off was of such a natuie
to lead to the belief that it was a bunch
amatuers who took only what they
needed in their business. Among the
stuff taken was one new red fiber tele
scope, suit-case style, one dark plaid
cravenettc rain coat, size 3G, one dark
dim plaid cravenettc rain coat, (heavy)
size 38. Also quantities of men's wool
ribbed underwear; black half hose,
fancy tips; fancy arm bands; 4-in-hand
ties, drab, brown, etc; ascot ties (wine
color); brown diiving gloves, silk lined;
drab suspenders, men's dark tan belts;
collar and cuff buttons; two pairs men's
vici blucher shoes, sizes byi and 82 ;
a quantity of patent bachelor buttons;
one stick pin (key); one stickpin (revol
ver); probably one or more Stetson
hats, Graeco style. A reward of S25
for information leading to the arrest
and conviction of one or more of the
parties, has been offered.
It i3 only little more than two
months since the sams store was broken
into and a quantity of goods taken, but
in less than twenty-four hours Sheriff
Reed had a pair of colored men arrest
ed who confessed the crime, and are
now doing a term at the pen at Lincoln.
Three suspicious characters were on
the street here Tuesday, who may
have been implicated. All three were
short, stout, smooth shaved young
fellows, and if apprehended there will
be more new recruits to join the Box
Butte county contingent of burglars
now doing time in the pen at Lincoln.
Father Galvin's Successor.
While we regretted yery much to
chronicle the fact that Father Galvin
was to leave this parish to be succeed
ed by Father Devos, of Spaulding, we
are more than pleased to quote from
the Spaulding Enterprise the following
"The news fell like a thunder clap
from a clear sky a few days ago that
Father Devos would be changed from
this parish to some other in the diocese
and that the Bishop had already made
the order. To say that the people
were surprised and disappointed would
be putting it mildly, and all kinds of
stories have been afloat as the reason
of this sudden decision of the Bishop.
So great was the excitement and so
anxious were the people to try and do
something that would bring about a
change in the conclusion reached by
the Bishop that a meeting was at once
held and a committee consisting of nine
of the representative members of the
congregation weie selected to go to
Omaha and have a conference with the
authorities of the diocese and, if possi
ble, bring about a recision of the
order. A petition .was also prepared
and circulated which in a few hours
was signed by nearly ninety-five per
cent of the members and residents of
the parish, but up to this time it seems
as though the wishes of the people are
not to be taken into consideration.
Father Devos is an able and zealous
priest. He came here when the coun
try was new and helped the people
fight the battles of pioneer life. He,
with them, braved the storms of winter
and the hot winds of summer to the
end that a prosperous and progressive
community might be established hero,
The storm was never too great or the
night never too wild for him to go to
the bedside of the sick or to bring suc
cor to those in want. For twenty
years he has battled with the elements
and against hard times and a scarcity
of money in a new country and has
built up a parish hero that is second to
none, and has done it too without dis
tressing anyone but himself. For years
he lived in a basement in the old house
on the corner above the school, part of
the time sick nearly unto death, and
did it uncomplainingly. He, more
than anyone else, is responsible for tio
fact that we have one of the best towns
in the state for its size, and had he,
under the providence of God, been per
mitted to remain here he would have
lout his energies and time to have made
it still better. We have a Brothers
community and school thnt is a credit
to any parish and we have one of the
finost Sister's academics that any town
can boast of, and we now have Hearing
completion a church that every rosi
dctit of this pait of the state could and
would be proud of, and these things
could not have been accomplished had
it not been for the indomitable zeal and
untiring cffoits of Father Devos. No
man, within whose bosom beats a heart
that throbs in sympathy with his fcl
lowmau, could have listened to the
words of this good priest on last Sun
day announcing the fact of Jiis depart
utc without the deepest and most sin
ceic sorrow. Father Devos will bo
missed from this community as no
other man would be, and no matter
where he goes, ho will carry with him
the blessing and devoted affection of a
host of peonlo of all classes and de
nominations." Elks Organize Saturday.
The Elks hall is about ready for the
initiation Saturday night. The parti
tions arc in, the plastering done, the
painting about completed and the
plumbing done, the furniture nearly all
here and the paraphenalia is here. The
cominittee on entertainment and recep
tion have all arrangements made to
meet the incoming trains Satmday
from the cast west and south. The
hall w ill be used on Sunday for the
installation of tho Knights of Colum
bus and a big delegation is expected
here for both events. The colors of
the Elk order are purple and white
and the city will be decorated in those
colors in honor of the occasion.
The K. C. Order to Organize Sunday.
All arratvements for the organiza
tion of the Knights of Columbus in
this city have been perfected and the
work of iniation will take place Sunday
afternoon and evening. This will take
place at the Elks' hall. The banquet,
which promises to be an important
affair, will be held at the opera house.
The speakers at the feast have been
selected from among the most eloquent
ttmber of the order throughout Nebras
ka and as a result those present will
undoubtedly have tho pleasure of
feasting intellectually as well as physi
cally on the best to be secured. Tho
ladies of the Holy Rosary parish have
charge of the banquet and will see to
it that nothing is left undone. About
sixty lambs will be shorn on this occa
sion and the price of wool will, no
doubt, fluctuate materially after Sun
day's organization.
C. H. Vincel, the barber, left for
Fullertop this morning, where he ex
pects to engage in business on his own
account, if the place suits him.

The ticwly Appointed General Super
intendent of the Wyoming
Division in the Hands
of His Friends.
The reception and banquet tendered
Mr. John R. Phclan, who has recently
been promoted from Division Superin
tendent to General Superintendent of
the Burlington here, was never equalled.
Over 60 of tho most prominent citizens
weie at the banquet board when the
distinguished guest ni rived, and he
was cheered to the echo when eiitoting
the banquet hall, while tho orchustra
played "Hail to the chief." Covors
wore laid for Go and every place was
taken. A seven course liiumi was
served while Miss IJartz and her or
chestra discoursed sweet music. After
tho cigais had been served and the
chumpaign had born poured, tho toast
master, Mr. F. M. Knight, proceeded
with the oral cntortainmont of tho eve
ning. He delivered a touching address
among other things ho said; "Fellow
citizens and Gentlemen: Wo have
assembled this evening for the purposo
of offering congratulations to one of
the most prominent gentleman of the
west. He has lived in our midst for
the last 15 years and has been identi
fied and personally interested, not only
in the progress and welfare of our own
state, but also in the development of
the resources of other states: Colorado,
South Dakota, Wyoming and Montana.
Mr. J. R. Phclan, our honored guest
at this gathering, has ever been known
as the practical and methodical busi
ness man, and has proven himself to
be absolutely loyal in the minutest
detail, to the various interests intrusted
to ' his care. I think I may
venture tho assertion that his recent
promotion to the GoncralSuperintciidi
cy of the C. B. & Q. Railroad system
will result in many benefits to this
corporation and likewise materially aid
in the development of the resources of
the tributary country which this great
system traverses. Mr. Phclan baa
been a prominent factor in the substan
tial growth of Alliance, His residence
among us practically dates back to the
very beginning of tho city. During the
intervening years we have found him,
not only instrumental in getting cap
italists to invest in Alliance, but also
have found his counsel and judgment
wise and conservative in the direction
of city affairs and the advancement of
our city schools."
The applause had not subsided when
Mr. Phclan, the guest of honor, was
requested to respond to the toast,
"Alliance." After which following in
the order named the following gentle
men responded to the toasts assigned

The only man who failed to rcsbond
was Division Superintendent Birdscll,
appointed to succeed Mr. Phclan, and
he was too much overcome with emo
tion at the glowing compliments paid
him and his chief to make response
and a "silent" toast was drank in his

tiicsc and a dozeirmore arc past mas
ters nl after dinner speeches and tho
banquet hall resounded with cheers
after each toast. But it wns to the
guest of honor to make the most touch
ing speech of the evening. In respond
ing to the call for a history of his rail
road career, lie began by reciting his
railroad service from a boy of 17 con
tinuously in various capacities from
building n grado to tho position lie now
holds. But the climax came when he
referred to tho barefoot days of hid
boyhood on an Iowa farm when he
drove his mother to church on Sun
days in the fnrin wagon behind n pair
of white oxen, and when he told of hav
ing only that day received n letter
from that dear old mother congratulat
ing her boy on his promotion, his cmo
tion overcame him and tears filled tho
eyes of most present. It was a touch
ing scene and will be treasured in tho
memory of all who witnessed it.
The affnirvag a complete and pro-.
uouueed success and was duo largely
to tho committee in charge: E. C.
McCleur and Dr. Knight, assisted
materially by tho exceptionally fine
music furnished voluntarily by Miss
Bartz and her orchestra.
