A rumor having been started that the
company contemplated moving the stock
yards from this city to a point where feed
is cheaper, fcc, we are requested by Mr.
Cash to say that there is no foundation in
any such report. In regard to cheaper
food the prices charged here are just the
same as at all yards along the line between
here and Chicago and lower than in the
latter city, although grain is generally
higher here. One thing can be said of the
h a-here, that it is of superior quality to
that furnished by most other yards, being
stacked on the ground, it is free from that
mould and must more or less characteris

During the past year quite a number

Oh Sunday the 27th inst there will be
a Sunday School picnic at the school house
in District No. 12, in Fox Creek Precinct,
after the usual exercises. For some time
past, under the able leadership of IL P.
Bishop, the superintendent, this has been
one of the most prosperous and interesting
Sunday schools in the country districts,
numbering twenty-eight members. 3Ir.
Bishop deserves much credit for , the
enthasiasm he has displaj'ed in the work.
Those who are posted as to the
probable route of the B. & from
Broken Bow westward have been quite
lively taking timber claims and home
steads along the supposed Hue. Among
thoso who made entries this week on the
Htrcngthof this information were Judge
Morris. Tobias Castor, and Miss Castor of
Crete, each taking a timber claim and
homestead; 11. II. Langford, timber claim,
and Win. Evans homestead, of this city.
Their claims lie in town 2-1, range 36,
about eighty miles northwest of this cit-,
on the head of the middle Loup river.
The country is described as being very
fine up there.
3IxBelton is not meeting with very
good success in sinking the well for
Russell Watts. After passing through
"the 75-foot bed rock, the usual flow of
soft water w:w found but the underlying
stratum was line sand that passed through
the screen and soon tilled the pipe,
preventing the flow of water. The only
recourse was to go deeper in search of a
gravel bed. At this writing Friday after
noon, the pipe has been driven to a depth
of oue hundred and seventeen feet, having
passed through several layers of rock
with a good flow of water under each but
invariably la the fine quick sand. Joe
Fillion who is superintending the work,
a3'S he will keep on until he finds a bed
of gravel if the pipe holds out, and he
thinks it will for he can get several thous
and fcctIt is a little remarkable that the
strata under the bed rocks in this case
should be quick sand, where only a few
hundred feet distant theyjare gravel. The
brewery well wo 'understand experienced
a similar difliulty tuft rests at a depth of
nf 140 Toot in a sheet of nure soft -water.

Geo. II. Hughes of Garfield precinct
was in town the latter part of the week.
3Ir. II. is engaged in the well boring busi
ness and gave us some information inter
esting to the public. In the vicinity of
Gandy he generally finds water at a depth
of 1G0 feet, although on what is called the
table in one case it was 240 feet to water.
Wells are not as expensive as generally
supposed, one 160 feet deep for his part
of the work costing about $50; the tub
ing at the yard here costs about 8 cents
per foot of well, so if a man does his own
hauling It can't be figured much over 10
cents. To this add his own labor and
board of hands makes a 100-foot well cost
in the neighborhood of .$100.

Marriage of Mr. Wm.H. McDonald
Miss Minnie Belton.
Not in the historv of North Platte
there been a more fitting matrimonial
alliance than was consummatedin the union
of Will McDonald and Minnie Belton ou
Wednesday afternoon last, the 10th inst.
The contracting parties are among our
most highly esteemed people, both having
lived in the county from childhood. Mr.
McDonald is a young man" of irreproach
able ch aracter, fine business capacity and
unsullied reputation, at present the
cashier in his father's bank. The lady of
his choice is the daughter of Hon. James
Belton and is one of North Platte's most

education, she possesses tho.-e rare

The ccrcutiony took "place at the resi
dence of the bride's parents, Rev. J. T.
Hopkins officiating. The ceremony was
simple yet impressive; there were no
bridesmaids or groomsmen, the couple
entering to the tune of a wedding march.
The bride was dressed elegantly, and the
groom wore the conventional suit for
The gathering of invited guests present
was brilliant and large. Those present
from abroad were Mrs. J. E. Boyd, Mr.
and Mrs. Ellis Bierbower, Mr. aud Mrs.
J. II. McConnell, and Mr. J. II. Harberg,
all of Omaha. The presents were numer
ous and magnificent, among them two
deeds for city property, and a large number
from school mates and friends in the cast.
After the ceremony an excellent
collation wis spread, to which all did
ample justice. The bride and groom left
for Denver on the night train intending
to spend eight or ten days iu the moun
tains. Mrs Evans, Receiver Shannon's daughter, re
ceived Saturday evening n box containing a law
valuable and historic collection of Indian relics
and curiosities from Dakota that she- had btowed

Mrs. A. J. West, wife of Engineer

all old residents. The funeral took place

no difficult engineering problems.
A gentleman asks us if the city dog tax is
legal &ad can be legally collected. We are not a
lawyer and cannot answer with, that degree of
infallibility characteristic of the profession.
Laying aside all collateral questions, it is oar
private opinion that the ordinance is void. The
constitution provides for levying a tax by valua
tion, "so that every person or corporation shall
pay a tax in proportion to the value of his, her or
its property and franchise." This seems to be
the fundamental law and is quoted by the judges
of the 6upreine court in many of their opinions
on tax questions. There is another provision of
the constitution which says "all municipal cor
porations may be vested with authority to assess
and collect taxes, bat sach taxes shall be uniform
in respect to persons nnd property within the
jurisdiction of the body imposing the same."
Upon this authority the law imposing taxes on
dogs is probably based. We don't know that it
has been passed upon by the supreme court. The
controversy would seem to rest on the point as to
whether dogs are property. It looks as though
they were and that they should be assessed the
same as horses, sheep or hogs. The legislature
has "powor to tax peddlers, auctioneers, brokers,
hawkers, commission merchants, showmen, jug
glers, inn-keepers, liquor dealers, toll bridges.
ferries, insurance, telegraph and express interests
or business, venders of patents, in such manner
as it shall direct by general law, uniform as to tho
class upon which ic operates." There is nothing
said about dogs, and the supposition is that they
should be taxed the same as other cattle, in pro
portion to their value. But as we said before, wo
don't know anything about this matter for the
intricacies of tho law as now interpreted are
finito past finding out. Therefore we would ad
vise our friends nnd tdl others to ay the dog tax
as it seems to bo just and not exhorbitant.
Mise Fannie Shxadar Found Dead in
Canyon Near Logan.
On Wednesday evfminglnMjIi3Fatuiio
Shradcr, daughter of C. D. Shrader, one
of the pioneer settlers of Logan county,
left her fathers' home ou horseback for
the purpose of taking a ride. Some time
after, the horse returned home without
the rider. Search was immediately
instituted aud kept up all night. Thurs
day morning Fannie was found in a canyon
dead. Our informant had no particular?.
but it is supposed she had been thrown
from the horse.
Miss Shrader was fifteen or sixteen
.... . .
years old, and a bright promising young
lady. Her death has casta gloom over all
the people of the neighborhood, and is a
severe shock, to tne amicteu parents ana
The Bridge Contract Let.
Bids for building the North River
bridge were opened last Tuesday and the
contract awarded to John L. Means of
Grand Island, he being the lowest bidder.
The bids were as follows:
Raj-mond & Campbell per foot. .$10 50
G. P. Fov & Co. per foot 7 65
Geo. II. Jewett per foot 7 00
Geo. II. Jewett per foot 0 95
S. S. Goff per foot 0 84
J. L. Means per foot 0 79
The estimated length of the bridge is
2,000 feet, but it will probably exceed
that distance slightly, making the cost of
the bridge exclusive of approaches, about
$14,000. This is considerably more than
the estimated cost of the structure and
exceeds the amount of bonds one thousand
dollars, the specifications calling lor a
much heavier bridge than at first contemplated.
The exhibition given at the school house
on last Saturday night was very well

exhibitions, being beautifully absent.

Bids, for the sale of the Lincoln cotmty
bridge bonds were received at the office
of the county clerk up to noon of yester
day. The representatives of the different
bidders being present, after some discus
sion it was agreed to sell the bonds at auc
tion. The Colonial aud United States
Mortgage companj' opened the bidding at
par, which was raised by the Omaha Loan
& Trust company, and then run up a notch
higher by Switzer & Co. of Toledo, Ohio.
The C. & U. S. M. Co. then dropped out
and a spirited contest commenced be
tween the Omaha and Toledo companies,
each bidding a fraction over the other
until the Omaha people rested at $396
while the Toledo folks made it an even
$400. This being the highest bid made,
the bonds were declared sold to Switzer
& Co. for 18,400, the face of the bonds
being 13,000, in accordance with an
agreement which appears elsewhere iu
the commissioner's proceedings, word not
yet having been received that the bonds
are registered. This is pretty good for
