The concluding speooh ol tlic sotics
Riven by Prof. JoyiioS of the Municipal
League of Chicago was hold Friday
night and iho rosult wns most satisfac
tory. Ho took special intcrost in il
lustrating the local conditions and pos
sihilitics of Alliance. Views of the
trading buildings of the city were pop
traved by the stercopticon machine
and brought forth vigotous applause
from the crowded house. The views,
however, of the alloys and highways
were different, and there is room for
radical improvement along this lino,
said the speaker, a fact we must all
admit. There is nit kind of complaint
about the filthy condition of our alleys,
but the same old filth ib allowed to re
main in spite of it all.
A banquet was tendered Mr. and
Mrs. Jp.yne8 at the conclusion of the
mceti'jg Friday night and was held at
Northwest cafe. Those present wcie

pressed themselves as being more than
pleased with the interest shown in'thcir
work here and hoped to visit our city
Geo. L. Wilson, president of the
Municipal Service League, arrived here
from Chicago last Monday and in com
pany with the entertaining committee
made an automobile visit about the
city to investigate the resources and
possibilities of the situation.
The same old question at once pre
sented itself to Mr. Wilson's mind and
he urged the immediate establishment
of a sewerage system, stating that it was
almost a criminal neglect to let the
matter lag as it is being done. It is
easily constructed from nn engineering
standpoint, said Mr. Wilson, who is a
civil engineer, and the plans already
drawn and held by the city administra
tion are practically correct. After sev.
eral other suggestions of features that
will be dwelt upon later by the presi
dent of this league, lie departed for
Denver and other (daces in which the
league is interested.
The Alert hoso team, which attend
ed the firemen's tournament at North
Platte last week, returned Sunday on
43 via Grand Island, and report having
a pleasant journey and enjoyable time.
The attendance was quite large and
great interest taken in' the races.
Thursday was the first day of the
tournament and the opening was in
terrupted by a heavy wind which pre
vailed. The first race, class A, was a
6traight-away hose race, 250 yards.
Three teams entered the contest.
North Bend won first money, f6o; Al
liance second, 40; Fullertou third,
Grand Island won in the hook and
ladder race the same day; North Platte
The class B hose race, 250 yards,
was won by Friend with Noith Platte
Thursday's class A hose race, 250
yatds, was again won by North Bend
with Alliance second and Fullertou
third, with money at $00, $40 and $30.
The hook and ladder race ol 250
yards was also won by Grand Island
and North Platte second.
Class B hose race, 250 yards, was
won by Friend; North Platte second.
The 100 yard running and coupling
race was captured by North Bend,
with Alliance represented by Owens
and Luft, second. $25 and $20.
The grand parade also took place
Thursday, and Alliance took first place
in the largest delegation which was
awarded a $25 prize. Friend drew u
fio prize for the best uniforms,
Friday morning a water fight took
place which caused great interest and
was witnessed by a large crowd of peo
ple. The wet hose lace that followed
was won by North Platte. The state
championship hose race was a lively
ariair and resulted in a victory for
North Bend, followed by Alliance and
Fullertou. Prices, $75, $50 and $15.
This race was iu class A.
Grand Island won the hook and lad
der race which followed and North
In class B, state championship hose
race, North Platte won first; Friend no
Thi &u-foot running and coupling
contest, tree lx all, was won by Nwth
A storm of appUuie aroe from the
large audience when the free-for-all
hose race, open to the world, was pull
cd off, in which three teams, Alliance,
Nortti Bend and Friend tied and di
vided the prize money, S83.30 each.
Now that Alliance has always been a
liberal patronizcr at the state tourna
ments and has won a rommendahtc
place among the fire teams of. the state,
it seems that wc should have the noxt
state tournament and we believe the
iiiombors of the Alert fire department
should not be backward in asking this
favor which is duo the city. We be
lieve, with the co-operation of our bus
iness men's club and citizens generally
this can be secured for next season, so
let us go after it at once. Yon know
the old bibical quotation, "Ask and
you shall receive."
Pinched in Car
Loaded with Lumber
Two strangers, brothers, were en
joying a sleep in a car of lumber Sun
day afternoon in the yards at this
place, when the switch engine rolled in
on the side track on which the car
stood nnd gave it a bump sufficient to
shift the lumber in one end in which
one of the boys was located and the re
sult was that tie found himself hem
med in very close quarters. His cries
brought help but before the lad was
rescued, rescuers almost caved in his
head with the tools they were using,
not being aware of his position in the
car. After almost tearing the end out
of the car they dragged the little fel
low, who was no mote than fourteen
years of age, from his crowded posi
tion and he was taken to the city hall
where he wbb cared for by Dr. Slagel.
No bones were broken and his injuries
were confined to.flesh wounds.
A republican rally was announced
to take place at the opera houce last
evening. The rally, if that is what
one may term it. came off but there
was a noticeable lack of enthusiasm.
W. W. Wood acted as chairman of
the meeting, and in introducing the
speaker, John J. Rvder, deputy state
labor commissioner, spoke most com-
nlhnentary of Alliance and westerp
Nebraska, concluding with the state
ment that Mr. Rvder would file the
first gun of the campaign for the ie
publican party in Alliance. The speak
er is a young man of pleasing address,
though a poor sample oi political cam
paigner. He attempted to make his
address appeal to the union labor vote,
but tiis line of argument was so dis
connected and without point that i is
conceded by most all who heard him,
that it would have been better for the
party had he never come to Alliance to
try and persuade the laboring men to
acain favor the republican party with
their votes, and one prominent citizen
made the ussertion, immediately after
the meeting, that if another such speak
er was sent here, chances were good
for the democrats to carry the state by
a million majority. But Mr. Ryder's
praise of Alliance, its schools, western
Nebraska and the fine alfalfa grown
here was sufficient reason for the 100
or more people attending. Captain
W. R. Akers of Scottsbluff concluded
the meeting with a few lemarks in
which he showed more of a partisan
spirit than did Mr. Ryder. Mr. Akers
admitted the gieatness of W. J. Bryan
as a leader among men and admitted
that he was a man of noble character,
but when he got down into politics he
forgot for awhile these admissions and
branded Bryan as an insincere, unieli
able demagogue, who was not to be
trusted, and in fact blackened his char
acter a dark hue. tt 'was the expres
sion of several of his tiearers after the
meeting that the speaker was evidently
led away by partisan feeling when he
got warmed up and entirely foigot the
manner of man lie was describing.
But the Captain must be excused, for
lie has been well treated by the repub
lican party in the past and hence is
faithful to his supporters. The Cap
tain's talk on alfalfa and how luxuriant
ly it grows over in the Platte valley
under the republican admistratiou was
most interesting and well leceived.
Fats and Leans Sunday.
If you want to see the funniest
game of the season go out to the ball
park next Sunday when the fats and
leans will have it out. We don't
know on which side Bud Betzold is
going to play but we'll hot the cigars
that if he is umpiie wo can guess who
will win the name. The game will
take place at 3:30 and will be one of
the closing attractions of the diamond
for the season,
Old Soldier Dies Today
Win. Mumper passed away at his
home in the east part of the city at
1:30 this afternoon after a chronic ill
iicsb with which he has suffered for
sometime. Docoascd was born in
Gettysburg, Pa., December 5, 1S42.
He sorved in the First -Pennsylvania
Reserves, settled in Nebraska in i860
and has resided in this locality for the
last twenty years, moving from his
ranch to Alliance. A devoted wife
and a son, Chester, who has served in
the navy for nearly four years and now
stationed at Hong Kong, China, sur
vive him. Mr. Mumper was a man
highly esteemed and owned consider
able property here. The funeral will
be held Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock,
Rev. Jeffers of the Baptist church con
ducting the services.
Will Initiate Class
Arrangements have been concluded
for the final steps in organizing the
council of Daughters of Isabella in
this city on Sunday, September 20th.
The initiation will take place at the
Knights of Columbus hall in the after
noon, followed by a banquet at the
Northwest hotel which will be an
elaborate affair. The name of the new
court will bear that of St. Agnes, a
most beautiful selection, which has for
its patroness one of the most prominent
saints in the lives of the light of the
church. The team conferring the de
gree wilt come from Dawson, Nebr.
Alliance to Have
Roller Skating Rink
Al. Dierdorf, the well known roller
skater and moving picture operator of
Hot Springs, has leased the W. D.
Rumer building now occupied by Mr.
Rumer's remnant stock, and will con
duct a roller skating rink in the same
in a short time, possibly by the last of
the month. Mr. Dierdorf is a capable
manager of resorts of this kind as his
popularity has proven at the spiings.
The Burlington exhibit car under the
management of the company's laud
man, D. Clem Deaver, was in the city
Sunday on its way south and west to
collect samples for the coming exhibits
in the east. The car will be here
again eaily in October when our coun
ty exhibit will be added. George Dong
las, as usual, will have charge of this
aad will accompany the same on its
The murriage of Percy Jahnke and

residents of Box Butte county and well
known. The groom is one of the pro
pi ictors of the Checkeied Front livery

daughter of Cal Underwood, one of our
old-time ranchers living southwest of

John Snoddy, also of this city, were
married yesterday afternoon at ttie
Baptist parsonage, Rev. G. C. Jefleis
officiating. The happy young people
left this morning for Grand Island
where they will reside. Mr. and Mrs.
Matz will take with them the congratu
lations of many friends as well as their
