Typhoid's Fatal Work
An epidemic of typhoid (ever seems
to have spread over this part of the
country lately, which is prevalent
among the railroad men. The latest
victim of the disease was Fireman L.
V. Greene, who died at the Alliance
hospital yesterday morning at 6:30,
after being confined to his bed for
three weeks. Deceased came here
from the east end to work last Septem
ber. He contracted the disease at
Edgejnont and was brought to the hos
pital here. Greene was twenty-thrco
years of age. His father arrived from
Broken Bow Tuesday and was with
him when he died. A brother and
three sisters, also from Broken Bow,
arrived yesterday morning shortly after
he had died.
The remains were prepared for ship
ment by Undertaker Darling, who, in
company with the bereaved relatives,
departed on 44 yesterday afternoon for
Broken Bow, where the funeral will be
Conductor Bachman
Dies of Typhoid
Sadness prevails not only among
the railway men with whom tie was
most popular, but also among, the
many friends of tho popular- young
conductor who passed away last Satur
day morning about eight o'clock, after
a battle with typhoid pneumouia. Tho
sudden change in the physical condi
tion of Mr. Bachman Saturday morn
ing dispelled all hope, and rejoicing
and confidence were rudely shattered
when suddenly the patient collapsed
and the light of his life went out for
ever. Beside his death bed were his
faithful wife and little son uhose sad
ness was mingled with the tears of
warm friends.
Win. Bachman was one of the well
known conductors of the Alliance divi
sion" and wasUinversalb'raspected and
loved by all, being genial and warm
hearted and made friends on every
hand. He una a native of Glen
wood; Iowa, where ho wab born June
10, iou, and possessed real estate
therein the way of a fruit farm. He
had made arrangements to give up his
position on the road here next month
to remove to his possessions in Iowa,
but the life of Win. Bachman again
illustrates how little a man knows of
the future. A brothor of the deceased
camcj last week from Omaha to visit
with Tiim and left the night before his
deatlfj with the assurance that he
would soon lecover.
The remains were shipped Sunday
morning to Gleuwood. Iowa, for in
terment, after brief religious services
at the home by Rev. J. L. Vallow of
the Mr E. church. They were accom
panied by the bereaved widow and
little son and Mrs. Brown, of Kansas,
a sister of deceased who arrived hero
In the death of William Bachman
tho Burlington railway has lost one of
its most reliable employes and the
order of conductors an honorable mem
ber, and the city of Alliancva highly
respited citizen. V

Commercial Club
After Public Library
As will be seen by tho proceedings of
the last meeting of the Commercial
club, there W an energetic effort being
put forth to secure tho assistance of
Andrew Carnegie, tho well known
philanthropist, In tho erection of a
public library In Alliance. Tho past
record of Mr. Carnegie In promoting
educational affairs Is so well known
that It is useless to deliberate on the
samo. Almost every city of any prom
inence In the United States has taken
advantage of the steel magnate in se
curing a public library. Sheridan, but
recently, built such an Institution.
Mrs. Helen M. Rowan, who has always
shown a favoritism for educational
matters, In a buslncss-llko manner pro
ceeded to 6CO what could be done in
securing Mr. Carnegie's assistance,
with the result that she received a
favorable reply, and which Is printed
in the Commercial club proceedings.
Besides the raising of funds, the secur
ing of books for the library Is In order,
and donations of this kind are asked of
the citizens of Alliance. A committee
composed of 1). W, Hayes, Mrs. J.
Rowan, Mrs. H. J. Wilson ami Mrs. J3.
K . Warrick, has been selected for tho
receiving of such gifts, and now that
c are in the season of gift-making let
us all remember the public library
project and make the oiTeriug of one or
more volumes. These donations should
be handed In to this committee ut once
so that there may bo no duplication of
publications. Submit your selection
11 nil the committee will advise you If
tho same has already been listed. This
Is the beginning of u good cause, and
let us all get busy.
