The application of E. N. Nussman
for city sprinkler was referred to tho
finance committee, and tho appoint
ment of W, D. Zcdikcr as city plumb
er was approved. The latter position
is yet to bo created.
Tho question of city rovenuo was
next taken up and hero is whero the
council struck a snag. With tho rev
enue derived from tho saloons no longer
available, the members were at sea and
it was finally decided to call a meeting
of the citizens of tho city to devise
means by whiqh said money should be
collected and this call appears officially
in another column.
Among the many bills presented was
one from the Alliance telephone com
pany for the city's uso of phones.
Heretofore it was the custom for the
company to allow the city the free use
of this convenient talking machine in
consideration for tho street and alley
privileges of using said, highways for
poles and the like, but under the new
legal ruling tho same was prohibited
and hence the telephone company has
put in a bill. Tho council "rabsled"
with tho new question for a short time
and then referred it to the city at
torney for investigation and it will
come up at the next meeting.
Mike Byer was granted permission
to lay a three-quarter inch water main
for garden and lawn use.
The petition of S. O. Carr to extend
electric lights on West Wyoming street
was rejected.
A petition signed by some thirty
signers was presented to the council
asking for a stone crossing at the inter
section of Idaho street and Box Butte
avenue, also tho erecting of an arc light
at that point was tabled.
The following reports were made by
city officers at this session:

Lester-Pierson Nuptials
The marriage of Mr. Claude Lester,
of this city, and Miss Hannah Pierson,
of Kansas City, Mo,, took place last
Thursday at the home of the bride's
parents in that city. This came as a
surprise, tp Claude's friends in this city
when he returned last Saturday and in
troduced, Mrs. Lester to his acquaint
ances. This goes to show that while
the young man recently passed a suc
cessful examination in, veterinary and
graduated in Kansas City but a few
months ago, he had another attraction
that was nearest his heart. Mr. and
Mrs. Lester will reside in this city where
Mr. Lester is well known and he will
pursue his profession. It is with pleas
ure that w e desire to extend to the young
couple our best wishes for their future
Acquitted of Murder Charge
William K. Masbn and Joseph -Van-derweide,
who have been on trial for
td weeks at Dura'ngo, Colo., charged
with the murder of United States Se-f
cret Service Agent Joseph A. Walker,
of Denver, were found not guilty, after
tho jury had deliberated four hours.
Tho trial, which was one of the most
sensational, was attended by many fed
eral officers and secret service men to
whom the verdict was a great disap
pointment. Walker was a prominent man in the
secret service department and was shot
down while working on a case at the
mines near Hesperus last fall. A. Trip
lelt, of this city, had somo experience
with the deceased, who was trailing him
while in Denver a few months ago.
Walker met Triplett just after he
got off a train there, and was going
to compel him to go to his (Walker's)
office, and it was not until Triplett's at
torney told Walker whero ho was at,
that ho left' them. Triplett say's that
whilo he nover had a desire to do bod
ily injury to anyone, he believes that
the manner in which ho was hounded
by Walker and some other secret scrv
ico men on several occasions, would
have justified him in using a gun.
A sensation was sprung at tho trial
when a life-size wax figure of Walker,
showing tho bullet wounds, was present
ed to the jury. It is said that the like
ness to Walker was so real that until
tho figure was undressed it was sup
posed to bo a living person. Tho gov
ernment spared no expense and left
nothing undone to secure a conviction.
Maypole Dance
The Maypole enelrtainmcnt given at
tho opera house Saturday evening was
a most successful affair and reflects
credit on those participating in the va
rious dances. Much praise should be
given to Mrs. Minnie Wiker and Miss
Nellie Morris for tho careful and pains
taking efforts which it was evident they
had given to the children in preparing
them for the occasion.
The program opened with a grand
march headod by Miss Eunice Eldred
and Master Michael Nolan, who led
their followers through some pretty fig
ures. Tho popular song, "I'll Bo Back
in a Minute, but I've Got to Go Now,"
as sang by the whole class of boys elic
ited much applause from tho audience.
With sprightly ease, Miss Agues El
more furnished the next number ot the
nroexam with an umbrella dance. In
troubadour costume, Master Maurice
Nelson won much praise in the rendi
tion ot the song, "I'm Afraid to Come
Homo in the Dark." Following Master
Nelson, the Misses Virginia Broome,
Agnes Elmore, Ruth Morris and Marie
Carey daintily danced the bon ton min
uet. Miss Marie Dismer, With graceful
ease, followed with a butterfly dance.
The manitou, by the whole class, was
neatly executed. The Misses Hannah
Coutant and Marguerite Harris pre
sented a pretty picture with their mir
ror dance. Miss May Newberry was
certainly a very winsome fisher maiden
in her dance of that name. LaVaughn
Moulton did full justice to herself and
her instructors in her dance, grandma's
minuet. A three-step by the class was
followed with a tambourine dance in
which the Misses Alice Morris, Helen
Broome, Frances Nolan and Nellie
O'Donnell won much applause. The
last number was, of course, the winding
of the Maypoles, of which two had been
prepared, one on the stage and another
in the center of tho hall. There was
no hitch in the winding of the ribbons
by either of the classes, both of whom
merited and received much praise for
the ease and certainty with which they
wountl the respective poles.
A dance, in which a great many of
those present participated, followed the
last number of. the program.
Half the proceeds of the entertain
ment were donated to the fund for the
Sisters' academy.
Tho following took part in the even
ing's entertainment: Michael Nolan,
Max Thornton, Fred Sweeney, Lloyd
Tully, Asa Hubbcll, Leo Cunningham,
Frank Thornton, Bernard Holsteu, Ir

Would Tap the Till
The night clerk at the depot lunch
couuter employed the assistance of the
night policeman early Tuesday morn
ing to round up four "boes," who, he
claimed, attempted to tap the cash reg
ister. The strangers were a man and
three boys, evidently tramps. The
leader of the moving aggregation had a
bottle and drank freely of the contents,
inviting the clerk to join him in the re
freshment. After loitering around for
several minutes, the stranger watched
his chance to touch the register. When
tho little bell rang, the register rang up
$6. The sound of the register bell at
tracted the attention of tho clerk, and
before the stranger.could make a haul
he and his pals took for the tall timber,
or rather the empty box cars in the rail
road yards, where they were discovered
and arrested by the night watchman a
few minutes later. They were taken to
jail, but as no evidence was found
against the boys they were released.
The man was given a light fine and is
working it out on the streets-.
