From the monthly report of Observer
Fitzgerald we learn that during JNovem
ber the mean temperature was 86.2, the
highest 81.2 on the first day of the month
and the lowest 25.2 degrees below on tne
27th. The total movement of wind was
5,452 miles. Tha total precipitation was
19-100 inches. Exactly the same as dur
ing November last year.
It is said that an alarming scarcity
of coal exists in western Kansas, and that
the famine is due partially to the refusa
of the Atchison & Topeka road to furnish
a sufficient amount of cars. The citizens
threaten to help themselves to the com
pany's coal unless they at once give
assistance. At Garden City lately a train
was side tracked and releaved of some of
the coal. It has not yet come to that
alonff the line of the U. P., but necessity
knows no law. Our people all hope it
will not be necessary.
-Men who are conversant with the
running of trains do not believe the rail
roads that have adopted the fast passen
ger schedule will be able to keep up the
service a great while. They can make
the mileage easy enough, but where they
hkvc onlv one track and -short- sidlnn
thev cant keep the freight trains out of
the wav. With ten miles of double
track at the end of each division it might
be easier, but even then there would be
trouble. When freight trains are delayed
on account of the fastthrougn passengers,
managers will begin to realize that they
are not pursuing an euuuuuiiuat piau.
Messrs. Grimes and Bixler arrived
home Sunday evening after spending
several days in Lincoln in attendance on
the Supreme Court. The motion for a
new trial of the .Long case came up on
Friday and was argued by Bixler for the
State and Grimes and Thurston for the
defense. Lawyers who heard the bill of
exceptions and the arguments expressed
the opinion that a new trial would be
granted. The opinion of the court will
not be handed down until the January
term which commences on the 3d.

"Eleven dollars and fifty cents is an
outrageous price for a ton of nara coal.
Between tne coal Darons, tne rauroaas
and the retainers, with poor men the
choice lies between freezing and starving
to death. The former is said to be the
least painful death; besides, the victim
gets some satisfaction out of the fact that
the coal sharks are not profiting. If the
choice must be made, under the circum
stances, the Republican advises that peo
ple freeze to death." Omaha Republican

The Logan county folks, and more
especially those of Gandy, are in quite a
bad fix about tneir court nouse. ine
county voted $ 5,000 in bonds to put up
the buildings and as soon as the vote was
declared carried, building operations
commenced. Lumber and brick were pur
chased in this city and hauled over, and
men put to work on the structure. To
pav the men the stores accepted orders
from the contractors to the amount of
several hundred dollars. Work progressed
rapidly and the building was ready for
the roof. In the mean time rapid steps
had been taken to perfect the record and
negotiate the bonds. They had been
sold and were ready to be registered by
the auditor. Here trouble commenced.
Some one didn't belive that the law under
which it was proposed to issue them was
constitutional, and an injunction was
granted restraining the auditor from reg
gestering them until the question could
be presented to the Supreme Court. This
will probably be done at the next term.
But even if the decision should be favor
able, it will be considerable of n hardship
on the people who have advanced money
to get the enterprise under way, as about
$3,000 have been spent. Ultimately we
do not think they will loose it, as the
commissioners should levy a tax to build
the house and draw orders on the fund
when paid into the treasury.

about in the papers it is time to protest.
The council took a sensible view of
the" license tairon transientnthowl?ra-
phers in accordance with the suggestions
of The Tbibune. Transient traders are
as a rule wuiing and expect to pay a
reasonable tax, but when the tax is pro

can be collected, provided of course the
trade is legitimate. Hereafter we pre

Some one who has hot much to do
and is a good mathematician asserts there
are nineteen applicants for tne position
of chief of police , commonly called city
marshal, which by the way is a much
better title, for "chief of police" is really
a misnomer in small cities and villages.
There will be no vacancy until Mr. Baker
resigns, which it is generally supposed he
will do upon assuming the duues or sher
iff. We presume there is nothing in the
law that will require him to resign, and
he may decide to fill both offices until the
expiration of the time for which he was
appointed chief of police.

After ao illness of about two weeks,
Jacob Laubenheimer died Wednesday
morning at ten minutes past twelve, of
lnnamation of the lungs. Mr. L. was
a pioneer settler of North Platte, having
located here in 1872, and was well known
to all old timers. He was a soldier and
participated in many battles of the re
bellion, being at tne time of his death a
member of the Grand Army. The fun
eral took place Thursday afternoon from
the Lutheran church, Rev. Adam Stump
delivering the funeral discourse. The
remains were escorted to tne cemetery
by his comrades of S.A. Douglas Post
G. A. R., where the dead veteran was
consigned to his last resting place with
the honors of a soldier. The deceased
was about 51 years of age
Allusion was made in these columns
a couple weeks ago to those who wre in
needy circumstances. "The poor, ye have
with you always" was said a good many
Kyears rgo, but tne percentage in JNortte
naoe n very smau compared witn
eastern towns. Still there are a few, but
their destitution is generally the result of
sickness or some circumstance over which
they had' no control, and not from laziness
or "pure cussedness." Our people are
industrious and self-sustaining. For the
relief of those who are unfortunately in
need of aid, we believe Mayor Hammond
sail nas a balance in his hands. Kev.
Stump informs us that he has a small
sum left from a collection taken up in his
church for that purpose. These amounts
are totally inadequate, and our charitably
inclined citizens should devise a scheme
to raise more. Work is likely to be right
scarce for some time, making it hard for
poor people who depend on their daily
abor for bread. In a christian land like
this they should not be allowed to suffer.

that while The Tbibune-Is calling atten

to be a good one. Some thousands of
pounds of wool are annually shipped from
this county to New York and Boston
markets, a large portion of which could
be manufactured at home, affording
profitable employment to quits a num
