after all, the action of the com-
being rescinded after learning
there wae a want of the required popula
tion. The board having placed the
license at $1,060, the place will not have
a saloon either. As a matter of fact there
is no necessity for the latter and the peo
nle as a whole will prosper much better
without it. But the temperance people
should now make an effort to suppress
the illegal traffic in liquor, said to be car
ried on there to a certain extent.
J. W. Byram, expecting soon to resign
from the service, a short time since sent
in an application for transfer to some
eastern station, and last week received
notice that he had been transfered to
Cleveland, Ohio. He expects the gentle
man who supercedes him to-day. Dur
ing his short residence here Mr. Byram
has made an excellent impression on our
people, who all wish him good luck at his
new post of duty and abundant success in
the profession he has chosen, the law.
Just as we warned its readers, along
came the Ncbraskian Sunday and said
there would be a Democratic meeting at
the Court House "this evening," giving
besides a very elaborate programme.
Thinking-possibly our information may
have been inaccurate, we went up to at
tend the rally, but all was dark and silent
in and about the stately building. The
UTebraikiari's readers should subscribe for
The Tribune. We promise to give
them reliable news, and some good poli
tics too, if they care to read it.
In the early days of the county the
people of Brady Island were wont to cel
ebrate the Fourth under their own vine
and fig tree, metaphorically speaking, but
of late years no celebration has been
held there. On the occasion of the com
ing Fourth they propose to revive the
old custom and Celebrate at home. They
will have a picnic and a good time gener
ally. R H. Langford of this city has re
ceived and accepted an invitation to de
liver the oration. We know tho people
will have a good time. The Tribune
will be there in spirit.

The Catholic fair opened Tuesday
evening, the attendance not being very
large on account of the storm, but since
then the hall has been crowded every

are well patronized, wmie aunng tne lat

and ice cream tables are crowded". To
tho young folks, however, the great at
traction is the dance, the floor being filled
at every number. For an all-round en
joyable evening, the Catholic fair is the
place to go everytlme.
John Angstman was brought over
from "Wellfleet last Friday, having been
arrested for selling liquors in that village
without a license. At the preliminary
hearing Saturday Judge O'Rourke held
him to the district court in the sum of
$200. He was allowed to go on his own
recognizance to procure the necessary
bondsmen, this being necessitated by the
bad condition of the jail. John was
formerly in charge of the brewery at this
place. It's quite likely he will not be
heard of again.
A number of gentlemen about town
got to feeling pretty good Saturday night
and before dawn eight or nine of them
landed in the cooler. One or two of the
most boisterous escaped however. Judge
Snelling was called upon to visit the bas
tile Sunday morning to take the recogniz
ance of such as could give the necessary
security ,but the majority of them had to re
main in the dungeon until Monday morn
ing, when some were fined, others assigned
to work on the streets, and one old tramp
was given a resonable time to leave the
city. There's nothing like having a good

The Telegraph is anxious to have the
license for circuses and transient traders
increased. In some cases we admit the
license taxes are too" low, especially in
that of transient traders, but they are pro
bably as high as can be enforced. Prohi
bition does not prohibit, always. In this
State a man has a right to carry on a
legitimate business in any town, and can
not be prohibited by excessive taxation.
Where the prohibition point is reached is
a matter for courts to decide. Put the
tax as near this point as can be guessed
and transients will not be likely to test it
The man Greenwood, who turned his
daughter out of doors some four weeks
ago only twenty-four hours after her con
finement, was in town .yesterday trying to
get a lawyer to prosecute the Omaha Bee
and we believe certain persons for sland
er and libel. It strikes us as being rather
difficult to libel or slander the. old man
under the circumstances . He committed
a most inhuman and criminal act. No
matter how unclean, the man who would
turn his daughter or any other woman
out of doors at such a time is deserving
of more severe -punishment than the sim
ple condemnation of the community.
The affair has passed over and the moth
er and the child have survived, strange as
it may seem. 'The less Greenwood agi
tates the subject the better for him.

The commissioners have beetf in ses-'
sion during the week as a board of equali

a careful examination. Some of them
are in bad shape. Every year it becomes
more and more manifest that a different
system of ascertaining theyvalue of pro
perty and the owners should be adopted.

The proper way perhaps would be to

restrictions and safegaurds, something
near uniform valuations in all the coun
ties might be agreed upon.
The most brilliant party of this year
was given by Mr. and Mrs. C. F. Iddings
at their palatial home on Monday evening
of this week. In the soft mellow light
of the gas jets in time to music rendered
by a violinist and a harpist, graceful ladies
attired in rich costumes guided by gentle
manly partners glided over the velvet
laid floors presenting a scene of beauty as
well as happiness. The host and hostess
were in their most entertaining mood, the
guests were bent on fully enjoying the
regal hospitality offered and if there was
anything to mar the pleasure of the even
ing it was not visible to the most scrutin
izing eye. At a proper time refreshments
were served and while these were being
partaken, many sallies of wit and merry
peals of laughter resounded through the
parlors giving evidence that tho party
was by no means a dull one. After this
refreshment of the inner man the dance
was again on and continued until after
midnight when the guests departed. It
was a very successful affair md Mr. and
Mrs. Iddings had every reason to believe
that their efforts to pleasantly entertain
their friends had been highly successful.
On Thursday evening at five o'clock
Frank H. Adams, of Plum Creek, and
Miss Lola Gillett were united in marriage
at the residence of the bride's mother in
this city, the ceremony being performed
by Rev. Martin in the presence of about
seventy-five friends of the contracting
parties. Immediately after the cere
mony a rich collation was served and at
eight o'clock the happy couple in com
pany with a number of friends took the
train for Plum Creek, which for the pre
sent will be the home of -Mr. and Mrs.
Adams. The bride needs no introduction
at our hands, she has been reared from
childhood in the city and has always been
greatly admired for her pleasant manners,
unassuming ways, and general ladylike
deportment. She has ever been popular
with her large circle of friends and ac
quaintances and richly deserves the pop
ularity which has been bestowed upon
her. Mr. Adams is quite well known to
our citizens, having at one time acted as
clerk at the Hinman House. At present
he holds a lucrative position in Wolbach's
store in Plum Creek. He is a gentleman
worthy" of the love his accomplished
young wife has bestowed upon him and
he will well care for and protect her
through the many years to come. The
couple received many handsome tokens
of esteem from their friends and have the
best wishes of our entire community:
May peace, happiness and fortune attend
them through life.

About a quarter past 12 o'clock Mon
day morning, June 18th, after a long and
painful illness, Rachel Urbach breathed
her last at her home in this city. She
was born in New York City, April 28th,
18C1. In 1884 she was married to Mr.
Samuel Urbach of this city, and. resided
here a couple years. Believing that the
atmosphere near the sea'coast would be
more beneficial to her health, with her
husband she returned to New York, but
the change did not produce the desired
result and they returned to their home
last fall, where our invigorating climate
greatly prolonged life. Mrs. Urbach was
highly esteemed by her acquaintances as
a lady of pure heart and gentle manners.
She leaves one child, a daughter, about
three years old. , The body was taken to
