ftrctry Store in
Hands of Creator
There was all kinds of trouble last
Saturday night and Sunday between
Chas. Hill, proprietor of the grocery
store under his name, and his creditors.
Marquis Qneenaberry rules were
brought into play and bloody noses and
black eyes were the result. Hill an
nounced last Saturday that he must
have money to satisfy his creditors,
and it ecems that brought on the war.
After business hours it is Haid that an
attempt was being made to remove
some of the fixtures from th'c store.
Tom Beal and S. I. Thompson, who
Bold to Hill, objected to certnin pro
ceedings. As a result Mr. Beal was
nt ruck. over the eye with sufficient force
lo require the assistance of a surgeon
to replace the lacerated flesh, and
Thompson received a badly pounded
face. Sunday the latter met Hill near
the Kintr corner and went at it again,
After two fast and furious rounds,
Bpecial police Murphy happened to
come along and persuaded the gentle
men that it was wrong to scrap on
Sunday. Thompson drew the consota
tion prize in the fracas.
Thompson and Hill paid fines Mon
day morning for their fun, but Beal
demands a trial Nov. 4, for he insists
that Hill had more than ordinary in
tentions when be attacked him.
While Charlie insists that he fought
only because he was obliged to for self
protectionhe's a good republican
yet it seem that he should have tried
his best to postpone the job till after
election as he came nearly fixing, the
others, who are also staunch g. o. p.
men, so they could not see to mark
their ballots for Injunction Bill next
Monday morning Mrs. Charlotte
Watkins, Hill's mother, swore out a
writ of attachment to the amount of
$4,500, while other claims to the
amount of $2,000 are involved. Sheriff
Wiker took charge of the store and
with the assistance of S. B. Libby and
Ira Heed the stock is being invoiced.
B. F. Gilman isttorney for Hill.
Crushed to Death
The remains qf John P. McCarthy,
who was killed at Crawford last Friday
morning, were received by Undertaker
Darling in this city in the afternoon
and prepared for shipment to his home
at Ravenna, where his father is en
gaged in the flour business. The kill.
.Jng of young McCarthy was instant.
He was firing on second 45 west with
Engineer Davenport and while at Craw
ford went over the tracks to call on
another engine crew. On his return
to his own engine he was run down by
another engine doing switching at the
time and his body badly mangled, his
bead being severed from the body.
Engineer White and Fireman Sam
Burchel! were unable to see McCarthy
in time to save him from his horrible
death by their engine.

ton last Friday evening. The social

Women's Club of Alliance in honor of
the board of education and teachers of

freshments were served iu the spacious
dining room of the Norton home by the
Misses Nellie Acheson aud Kuth Aspen
wall. Gaines were also indulged in to
the pleasure of all. A handsome car
nation and fern boquet was presented

What They Think of
Our Foot Ball Team
A bunch of foot-ball enthusiasts, not
players, mind you, went to Alliance
Sunday to give the Alliance foot-ball
artists a little practice. As foot-ball
racers the Crawford boys were all right,
but as foot-ball players they were a
huge joke. It was a snap for our boys
to manage to get out of the road of the
Alliance man who was carrying the
the ball, and in this respect they played
rings around the Alianceites. The
very sight of the foot-ball made the
Crawford boys shudder, and to touch
it, oh my I that was impossible, which
accounted for the score, 84 to o. The
Alliance bunch is composed of an aggre
gation of footiball sports that will sure
make a record.
The home of General Superintendent
aud Mrs. Allen was the scene of a very
cnjoyublo social gathering of about
forty of the high school students and
faculty Wcdncsduy night, the 27th, it
being tlie occasion of the Itth birthday
of their oldest son, Louts 1$. Allen, Jr.
The high school quartet trendered some
very fine selections. The principal
game was the modeling of animals on
card bourd In chewing gum, the first
prize being won by Kuthcrine O'Douncl
who modeled un owl. The consolation
prteu was awarded to Professor
Williams for making a very tine likencs
of Professor Relinuud. The fact that
the gum had to be chewed to the proper
consistency before the process of
modeling could commence, added to
the Interest of the game. It might
be mentioned in this connection that
the affair was a complete surprise to
Louis, After the serving of an elabor
ate luneheou the guests departed at a
late hour, ull voting they had spent
n very pleasant evening indeed.
The College Boy last season under the
management of Chas. Riggs and son, play
ed 42 weeks without one adverse press
criticism. Quite a record a nd one Mr.
Riggs is justly proud of, Mr. Riggs has
consistently in the past given his patrons
exactly what he promised and when he
states that the College Doy is this season
even better than ever before, theatre goers
can feel assured of a first-class perform
ance and a cast fully equal and capable in
every way. The comedy element is al
most omnipresent scarcely a minute of
the three hours performance being devoid
of a laugh and the absence of the usual
coarseness is most refreshing. One of the
many marked features is Bernard Riggs,
one of the youngest and cleverest comed
ians, with his wonderful dancing and as
sortment of popular songs. The scenic
effects are elaborate and the music catchy
and whistly, At Phelan opera house

spending a few days in Alliance inter
viewing the voters. Mr. Adams is the
present representative from this district
and is a man of ability. In a state
ment published in this issue he pledges

which place also is trying to secure the
state normal school to be located in the
western part of the state. Mr. Meyers
is naturally for Valentine and is receiv.
ing the support of those interested in a
normal school there, regardless of party
affiliations, hence all who have the
interests of Alliance at heart should
vote for Mr. Adams.
