First Step Toward Constructing Sew

Company Secures Contract.
At the adjourned meeting of the city
council last night from Tuesday even
ing, the sewerage proposition came up
and the contract for a complete survey
of streets and alleys of the city for a
first-class system was awarded to the
firm of Blake & Lawrence of St. Louis,
well known civil engineers. The work
will be tinder the supervision of Mr.
Mr. Blake, who is an old-time govern
ment civil engineer, is a relative of the
Boon family of this city.
The contract price for the survey is
S500, and Mr. Lawrence, who repre
sented the firm at the council meeting,
set to work to file the necessary bond.
According to the stipulations, work
will begin in ten day? and pushed to
completion as soon as possible.
Now that the first step has been
taken in this important municipal im
provement, the citizens of Alliance will
no doubt join with the council in push
ing the good work along, for it means
better sanitary condition, which affords
a safeguard to all from much sickness
that find existence in cess pools and
the like, that become stagnant without
proper disposal thereof, It also means
an advancement of business interests,
and we can expand without stint.

The Bogus Check Again.
Marshal Shay and Nightwatch
Daugherty gathered in a crook last Fri
day who was not of the tenderest specie.
He was at the Right clothing store dur
ing the day and made the selection of
a suit of clothes and other wearing ap
parel and had them laid aside until a
ranchman from near Lakeside would
come to town and identify him. He
gave the name of Hamal Scribbcr, and
said that he had worked for the ranch
man who gave him a check on the First
National bank of Alliance for 548.00.
Late in the afternoon he again went to
the store and stated that the man from
Lakeside had failed to appear, and
asked Mr. Beckwith to take his pay for
the goods out of the check and give
him the balance in cash. This was
done and soon after it was learned that
the check was worthless. Scribber
went to the barber shop of a colored
man on Box Butte avenue and inquired
if he kept false wigs and mustaches in
stock. This aroused the suspicion of
the barber and he put the police on the
trail of the stranger who was finally
located in the tenderloin district by
Shay and Daugherty who put him un
der arrest. Scribber claims to have
come to town from Billings in company
with a female of his own stripe and
after relieving her of 51,500, sent her
cast on the morning train before she
discovered the theft, but this seems in
credible for the fact that he had no
money at the time he secured the
clothes. Scribbcrs case came up be
fore Judge Spacht last Tuesday and he
was bound over to the district court in
the sum of $1,000 bond, which he was
unable to secure.
How A Young Man Can Succeed.
Bernard Gray, son of James B. Gray,
the well known representative of Dotii
aid & Porter of Grand Island, grocers,
passed through Alliance last Saturday
on 41 for Newcastle, where he goes to
look after the interests of the Cudahy
Packing company, with whom he has
been associated ever since a lad of 15
years. Young Gray is an old acquain
tance of the writer, who knew him ever
since he wore kilts, and it is with pride
that we see his advancement with this
establishment, with whom he has be
come a confident, a specialty man that
brings him in touch with the head of"
ficers of one of the biggest meat con
cerns in the world. Bernard Gray has
gained merited promotion, and though
only 24 years of age, we feel confident
that the future success of this young
man will be in the line of higher ad
vancement. Arrival of the New Bell.
The new bell recently purchased in
Baltimore for Holy Rosary Catholic
church has arrived and will be blessed

ligious ceremonies iu which several vis
iting clergy will take part. The bell

this section of the country. The tone
of the new bell each Sunday morning
will add to the religious sentiment of
Drives Into Wire Fence.
A special to the daily press from
Cheyenne under date of September 27,
says: "Herbert Wchn, son of a bank

control of the machine and dashed into

from his body, he escaped serious in

O Council, Miss Cronm and an unknown
