Custer county is the fourth in
the State in the number of Repub
lican votes cast, and has sixteen
delegates in the State Convention.
Speaking of McGlynn, seems to
us the associated press is giving
this tool of Henry Georgeism too
much prominence. Give him a
rest, and 0, give us a rest.
The neome or bidnev have mi-
posed an occupation tax on nearly
every business carried on in the vil
lage, the lawyers being exempt. The
Telegraph thinks this is showing
Dr McGlynn was invited to
Rome to see the Pope. He wouldn't
go and so his Holiness excommuni
cated the Rev. Father from the
Church. If the Pope will invite
us to visit him we will go, and
make no fuss about it either.
Some time since The Tribune
referred to the large number of
claims for damages on account of
roads that had been filed with the
County Clerk; the amount now
being 6,322.10. In some of these
cases the board has probably "got
its foot in it," .and will have to par
or vacate the roads. Of course if
this policy of paTing such enormous
prices for roads is continued it will
bankrupt the county, and a new
plan must be adopted. The people
want roads and must have them,
but there is a limit to the ability
of the county to purchase. That
limit seems to have been reached at
6,000. Draw the line right there,
Kocken, Capt. J. D. Jackson,
and John Hawley. Here is
a list of most excellent
gentlemen, and we apprehend the
convention will have considerable
work in making a choice.
Maj. Woodhurst is one of the
pioneers of the county, having
served one term as sheriff
in early and stormy times, and
was afterwards warden of
the penitentiary. He has al
ways been a wheel-horse in the
Republican party, his superior
judgment and foresight being al
ways sought in party councils.
W. C. Elder is a farmer residing in
Medicine precinct, at present filling
the important office of justice of
the peace. He was a Union soldier
and is a member of the Grand
Army. In party harness he always
pulls true and is an excellent work
er. Fred C. Spanuth resides near
the head of Warren valley in the
east part of the county, where he
has an excellent farm. He is post
master of the office bearing his
name, and has a wide circle of
friends. A. 0. Kocken is one of
North Platte's oldest citizens, hav
ing carried on the business of mer
chant tailor for many years. He
has we believe never held office,
but has been a consistent and ear
nest party worker. His personal
friends are warm and steadfast, an
index of personal popularity. Capt.
Jackson is well known to most
people, having been in the grocery
business here for a number of
years. He is a member of the
Grand Army and as a Union soldier
has a most excellent record.
John Hawley has occupied the po
sition of justice of the peace in this
city for a number of years, and is
also extensively known as the prop
rietor of the Hawley House, being
one of the most popular landlords
of thevcity, demonstrating: that "he
knows how to keep a hotel."
The call for the State Conven
tion reminds lis that another elec
tion is approaching. The officers
to be elected by the State are one
associate justice of the supreme
court and two regents for the Uni
versity. In this (the 10th) judi
cial district a judge is to be elected
Throughout the State, countv offi
cers are to be elected, with the ex
ception of county attorney, and of
course the greater interest centers
upon the local tickets. In this
county, excepting for the office of
county clerk, there are a number
of candidates for nomination by
the Republican convention, but at
this time it will only be necessary
to refer to those for treasurer and
sheriff, it being conceded that Mr.
Evans will be renominated and
1 1 1 1 1 Tt 1
eiecwju county cierK. ueiow we
p it t
give tue names or tnose wnom we
have heard mentioned in connection
with these offices,simply prefacing
that this paper expects to support
the nominees of the convention
heartily, doing all in its power to
secure their election, and does not
wish to be understood as favoring
one more than the other.
For the office of county treasurer
we have heard three names men
tioned: W. T. Chadwick, C. E.
Osgood and C. H. Stamp. Mr. Chad
wick is a locomotive engineer and
has been on the road ten or twelve
years. A straight, consistent Re
publican, he is industrious and de
serving, and is one of our most re
spected citizens. Mr. Osgood is a
farmer and stock grower, having a
fine ranch five miles south of the
city. In the session of 1S85 he
represented the county in the lower
house of the legislature, and in the
fall of that year was a candidate
for treasurer. He is the president
of the count' agricultural society,
in which body he is an energetic
worker. Chas. H. Stamp is a mach
inist and works in the railroad
shops of this city. He is the pres
ent secretar- of the Bepublican
County Central Committee, being
one of the best and most enthusi
astic party workers. He has served
one term as city treasurer, keeping
well posted in financial matters.
The office of sheriff seems to be
more attractivegthan the others and
competition for the nomination
will be quite lively. Those whom
we have heard mentioned for the
office are: Maj. Woodhurst, W. C.
Elder, Fred. C. Spanuth, A. 6.
The Infer Ocean commends the
wisdom of its Democratic con tern-
1 -ww -
porarv, tne Umalia lierakt. It
reads the Republican party a sound
lecture for making any reference to
the past history of the parties, and
closes with this ringing classic sen
tence: "The present aee is the acre
of the living; the issues must be
issues of to-day, not of retrospec
tion, but prospection." It is the
wisest platform the democratic, par-
tv can build upon. The. more thev
can make the people forget of the
past ot the party the better. The
"retrospection is"gloomy. The
question will be asked by many, is
mere mucn nope in tne "prospec-
tion witnout being "born again ?
Work was commenced on the
central or main building for the
soldiers' and sailors' home near the
city to-day. The B. & M. is put
ting m a side track tor delivering
material on the site, and the work
will be pushed with all possible
vigor. Both brick and stone are
now on the way, the brick coming:
from Kearuer via the Hastings and
Aurora over the B. &. M., and the
stone from the B. & M. line south.
Both Colonel Hammond command
ant and Mr. Scott the contractor,
are on the ground looking after the
work and pushing it forward to the
best ot their ability, and the insti
tution will be in good hands

A somewhat unlooked for action
has been brought by E. Nagle, re
ceiver tor the nrm ot bwaii Bros
against the tirst National bank of
this city. The bank, to whom the
Swans owed 83,000, sued out an
attachment against the firm but it
failed to hold. Now, Mr. Nagle,
claiming that the bank, under its
charter, could loan but 20.000, or
10 per cent, of its capital to a single
individual or firm, and that in con
sequence its loan of 83,000 was
illegal beyond the sum of 20,000
The receiver now sues to recover
the difference from the bank for
the benefit of creditors with some
prospect of recovering the same.
This will, should it win, reduce the
indebtedness of the firm 63,000
and give that much more, for
which the bank is said to hold full
collateral security, to be divided
among the firm's creditors. Chey

Without any disrespect to the
office of chief magistrate of the na
tion, the Salt Lake Tribune thinks
it only fair to saT that President
Cleveland's address on the respect
due that office, delivered at Clinton
lately, was mostly, in the lexicon of
the compositor, "hog-wash." It
was turbling and bungling in dic
tion, and through it the ran a strain
of complaint which is unworthy of
any incumbent of the office, Presi
dent Cleveland has less real grounds
for complaint of the treatment the
people have given him than any
other president. Wrong on a mul
titude of vital issues, he has never
been more than gently criticised,
except where his acts have permit
ted nothing less mild than denun
ciation, tip to seven years ago he
had achieved no higher fame than
that of a Buffalo ward politition .
His existance was quite unknown
to quite fifty-nine and a half out of
every sixty ot his countrymen.
Considering all the facts, it does not
require a speech from him to im
press upon the people the respect
due omce ot president.
We must Pay for keeping the Insane.
A snort time ago tne county t-ierK re
ceived the following notice from the
Attorney General The amount claimed
is creater than was supposed was due, as
several patients have been charged to
this county who did not legally belong
horo. Nearly every county in the state
is delinquent and if they owe an amount
corresponding to their population, the
hospital will have a half million dollars
coming to it. Judging from this, keep
ing a hotel of this kind must be a mighty
prontablo business. It is likely that
relief will bo sought from the next

The ex-soldiers of Garfield held a
camp fire at the school house last Wednes
day evening and had a splendid time in

speaking, telling army stories of camp
life, battles and prison pens, and supper

etc. The entertainment closed about
eleven P. M. by singing about a hundred
and fifty j'ards of the song, John Brown.

A reader of the Pioneer furnishes
the following dog story: A dog
owned by Wm. Boughman, who
lives about nine miles northwest of
this city, followed his master to
Plum Creek Decoration day. On
the way home Mr. B. says the dog
followed him within a mile and a
half of the house and there he saw
him chasing a rabbit. He paid no
attention to the dog, but noticed
when he got home the dog had not
followed him. He did not come
home for several days and he was
thought lost. On the Fourth of
July some men were driving along
the" same road and they heard a
noise at one side of the road. They
went in the direction of the noise
where they found an old well, 30
feet deep, in which they found the
dog, which when chasing the
rabbit, had fallen in and lived five
weeks without food or water.

He was industriously picking away
at the rock when suddenly the

with great force, stunning and al-
ost blinding him, but, recovering
and calling to the windlassmen at
the top, he was hastily drawn be
yond danger, as the water in less
than two minutes had risen 10 feet
in the well. Grant Enternrise.
