Meet and Feast
The annual meeting of the Alliance
high school almnni association took
place At the Drako hotel last Friday
evening and nhout thirty-five member
participated. This was the organic
Uod's first meeting, hut it is safe to
predict that it will not be its last. The
occasion was one that appealed to the
heart of each member, for it must be
said that in all this life there are no
days looked back to with the sensu of
genuine, unalloyed pleasure as those of
our school years. Thev seem to be
the sweet periods in life's journey.
Supt. D. V. Hayes, ot the city school,
presided as toastinaster and lie as
suihcd his position with the same inter
est that ho takes in all matters pei
taming to education.

Sanford Dodge in
Goethe's Master Drama
The universal dramatic favorite, Mr.
Sanford Dodge, and a remarkably tal
ented compauy will play an engage
ment in this city of Goethe's "Faust."
This is Mr. Dodge's tenth annual tour
during which time he has produced all
of the popular Shakespearean, classic
and romantic dramatic masterpieces.
He is one of the. few actors now living
whose aim is to keep and maintain the
best traditions of the stage by pro
ducing only such plays as improve and
enohle those who see them presented
rather than demoralize and degrade,
in other words, the influence
Dodge's dramatic work has been al
ways for good rather than evil and for
this reason he should he supported bv
those who desire to see the stage up
lifted and elevated, rather than de
graded. Mr. Dodge and his excellent com
pany will appear at the Phelan opera
house on Wednesday evening, Sept.

have the citv vacate Railroad street as
a thoroughfare from Toluca avenue
west to the county road. The proposi
tion was thoroughly discussed by many
present and on standing vole the same
granted, the company desiring to make
extensive track improvements in the
yard and surrounding the fine new de
pot. It waB necessary that the com
pany have this tract of laud and hence
the same was given over to their use.
Other questions were discussed and a
resolution passed asking the county
commissioners to confer with the rail
road officiate regarding a suitable cross
ing over or under the tracks west of
town, something like the one at the
east end of the citv. This will provide
ample roadway over the railway tracks
and very likely do away with further
perplexities in this respect.

garding the unfortunate killing of las.
Keith by M. H. Hagerty at Bridgeport
last Thursday afternoon and as The
Herald is not familiar with the circum
stances, we produce the following from
the Bridgeport News-Blade, which is
probably as nearly correct as any. j
Bridgeport is the only town in the val
ley that has saloons and residents of j
that locality predict that they will not j
be licensed there another year. '
''The shooting and killing of Jas. Keith
by M. H. Hagerty on Thursday afternoon
had the effect of marring the pleasure of
what promised to he the most enjoyahe
day of the reunion, and another blot has
been placed upon the fair name of this
enterprising little city.
The News-Blade will refrain from com
menting on the tragedy at this time, con
tending itself to give the facts in the case
as learned from eye-wituesses. Mr. Hag
erty is under arrest and will be placed on
trial for his life. Whatever justification
there may he for the crime will be brought
out at the trial and we believe it is not the
mission of a newspaper to attempt to in
cite prejudice at a time like this.
From Mr. J. L. McFerron, who had
just arrived in town a few moments before
the trngedy, and who was an eye-witness
to the sliooting, we learn the facts here
given. Mr. McFerron and his son had
driven up to J. W. Lee's livery barn and
were unhitching their team when their at
tention was attrrcted by a noise inside the
barn. It proved that Mr. Keith, who was
under the influence of liquor, was having
Mr. Hagerty's horse Intellect up, and
when he got into the buggy the animal
plunged and reared. It was caught by
by-standers before it had proceeded more
than a couple of rods, when the occupant
of the vehicle jumped out and caught hold
of the animal's bit. Mike Hagerty came
out of his saloon and ordered Keith to let
go of the horse. A few words followed
and Keilh struck at Hagerty over the
Thereupon Hagerty turned and walked
hack into the saloon, returning in a mom
ent with a revolver. He walked around
to where Keith was standing and when
within about six feet of him, pointed the
weapon toward Keith, who still clung to
the horsei and again commanded him to
let go. Once again he repeated the com
mand, and as the drunken man, whether
from bravado or fright, failed to loosen his
hold, Hagerty fired.
The bullet entered the victim's abdo
man at the left side, passing through the
lower bowels and out at the right side.
Keith dropped in his tracks, and lay there
on the street until the arrival of Dr. Pal
mer. The doctor made an examination df
the wound, and realized at once that
nothing could be done for the wounded
man. In fact Keith was breathing his
last when Dr. Palmer reached him, and in
I about thirty minutes after the shooting.
the heart had ceased to beat, and the
spirit of James Keith had returned to the
God who gave it. It wus a solemn mom
ment and the crowd of men, who had been
attracted by the news of the shooting,
stood silent and awe-stricken in the pres
ence of death,
Mr. Hagerty, who had returned to his
saloon, was placed under arrest by Mar
shal J. W. Lee, who started at once for
Sidney with his prisoner. Shortly after
ward the village hoard held a hasty meet
ing and revoked Hagerty' license, and
