According to recent statements, the banks - of North Platte hold about $300,000 on deposit, which with their capital will make over $400,000 actual money in the city. Is not that a very good showing, coeeidering our population ! The eleventh annual re-union of the soldiers and sailors of Nebraska will be held at Kearney, commencing August 12 and closing August 17. The encamp nent bids fair to be one of the greatest ever held in the West, but the old soldiers hereabout are this year taking more in . 4erest in the National Encampment at - Milwaukee. Several farmers have informed The Tribune that hunters from this city have commenced slaughtering prairie chick ess, and furthermore said that they pro fc posed to prosecute anyone they hereafter find violating the game law. It would be well to make an example of a few of these hunters who insist in killing chickens before they are full grown. R. D. Thomson, who returned from Wisconsin last week, reports crops in parts of that state and Illinois very poor, sad that business in the towns he visited seemed to be almost at a standstill. When compared with trade in other places, he thisks the merchants of North Platte Lave little reason to complain. Business is dull everywhere. Our local- mechanics do not take kindly to the scheme of Richards is Co., contractors on the First National Bank building to reduce wages. Our mechan ics should resist the move of the con tractors by every possible means. In taking a contract, bidders should not bank oa a reduced scale of wages. The car pesters and masons local scale is none too high. As has been tne custom for several years past, the members of the Presby terian Sunday-school held a picnic last Thursday afternoon, the ground used be-Jf- ittg on the lands of the Scout's Rest Ranch. From the number of baskets which the wagons conveyed, we are led to believe there was 'no scarcity of pro visions. The afternoon was pleasantly spent by both the young and the old. W. C. Elder, Esq., who has just re turned from a trip southward, we pre same in the vicinity of the home ranch, says the corn in that part of the County ' k booming, the ears are now half as long as your arm, and if they continue grow ing he will not be responsible for their length, sod corn is immense never saw anything like it Small grain already cut, is considerably damaged in shock by the wet weather. Potatoes are as large as three years old goose eggs and still ; growing. - On the occasion of his nineteenth birthday last Friday, John Lonigan gave a dance at the opera house to which were isvited a large number of his young friends.

The bicycle is giving way to the im proved velocipede, a "machine that is much easier to ride and from which it is. impossible to "take a header." Some twenty years ago the velocipede had a brief run, but the power being applied directly to the front wheel, as a means of locomotion on a dirt road, it proved im practicable. In the improved machine the power is multiplied by gearing and the old difficulty thereby removed. There are some pretty mean thieves i?.H8 vain, world. andXincolh. coqatyjs. not exempt from her share. A short time ago Geo. Golvin of O'Fallon pre cinct, had six calves stolen, the entire pro duct of six cows for this year, all he had. We have heard the saying, "honor among thieves," but these fellows appeared to be entirely lacking in this ingredient, or they would have left one or two anyway. No trace of the young animals had been found up to the time of obtaining our information. Wm. McAvoy had a nice lot of tur keys, but recently the officials of the TJ. P. R'y were riding by on a special, when the flock was promenading along the track, and in an instant the flock was knocked out killing the most of them. The aforesaid officials made up a purse of ten dollars to reimburse Mr. McAvoy aud then took the dead turkeys aboard as toothsome flesh for official teeth. When they" go home they will probably tell their wives and sporting friends about killing wild turkeys up on the South Platte. Biff Springs Journal. One time a blind man was riding through the country looking for a fertile farm. The boy who was driving the team would describe the land. Finallj' they came to a cultivated field which had ap parently produced a good crop, but the boy said the weeds were higher than the fence. The blind man said that would do, he would purchase that farm; if the land produced big weeds it would raise good crops. If that gentleman should come to North Platte at the present time' lie would applying the same principle purchase Jialf the city. The council and the street commissiouer had a talk on the subject of weeds two weeks ago, but talk will not kill weeds in a rainy time. We have heard of meu being talked to death, but weeds never. For the looks of the thing a few vigorous days work with the scythe should be indulged in . The reason for the annullment of the marriage of K. C. Barton to Miss Bridges of Ogdensburg, N. Y., as published in the Omaha Republican of July 26, is that previous to the marriage! the woman had entered into a conspiracy with one Hol ism, a man with whom she was in love, .to the effect that she would marry Barton, for whom she did not care a fig; that Hullam should meet the husband and wife at Montreal, where they expected to stop during their wedding journey: that Hullam should there induce Barton to drink; that the liquor should be drugged ; that the stupefied man should then be led or conveyed to a house of prostitu tion; that in this predicament he should be discovered in the most public way possible; that his dishonored bride should leave him in burning indignation and should immediately, bring suit for divorce and alimony; on the money thus obtained Hullam and the divorced woman could live in opulence. For some reason Hul lam did not materialize at Montreal and the conspiracy failed. In the mean time a confidential friend of Hullam's, who. was in-the plot, had weakened and sur rendered to a friend of Barton's a batch etisnt oi -Mrs -Tae thieves who broke open a freight car at this place last week were pursued by deputy sheriff Merriman and were captured on the N.rth river at White Tail bottom. Thev rave the names of George Clark,, of Beaver dry and "Frank Marths, of the same place. They had prellsiinary 'extmtnatioQ yesterday. Where does the smoke come from has $eesf a query on the lips of almost everyperson during the past four days. Although Saturday was cloudless, the sun appeared as a fiery red ball in the heavens all day and Sunday could be called an Indian summer day. In south ern Dakota, Wyoming, Montana in fact through the entire northwest an unusual drouth has prevailed, and forest and prairie fires have been raging for a month. The smoke came from those regions. There will be considerable loss of grain on account of the inability of the harvesting machines to cut it in time. Farmers are censured frequently for the reckless manner in which they sometimes buy reapers, but several in this vicinity say they have lost money this year by not buying. Hershey Sa Co. sold two last week, one being set up on Saturday even ing and started on Sunday. One farmer told a Tribune reporter that he had en gaged a neighbor to cut his grain, but perceiving that the man would not be able to reach his grain in time, hastily came to town, bought a machine, and by running night and day has cnt 140 acres. In this way he saved his own grain and that of several neighbors. P. L. Harper, of the Wallace Security "nk,'-rssiB the -cUythe'eariy-partof the week. While here he received a car load of twenty-one head of fine Oregon horses which he had previously pur chased. They were said by Mr. Burke to have been the smoothest lot of horses thus far received from the west this sea son, several of them being trotting bred from a sire that last fall showed three consecutive mile heats in 2:30 and better. The owner of the latter offered to drive him three heats in 2:25 or better if he would receive the price he desired for the horse. This is remarkably good time when it is remembered that the ani mal weighed 1325 pounds. Becommenned for Commissioner. The people of Myrtle. Whittier, Gar field and Arnold precincts believe that they are entitled to the County Commis sioner who, is to be elected this fall. They have become aware also that they could not secure the nomination of a man unless they were united. Accordingly with the object of agreeing upon some one a meet ing was called, by the committemen of. the four precincts, which convened st Whittier on Saturday the 20th inst. Al though it was a busy time with farmers, there was a fair gathering of representa tive men. Morey Alexander of Garield precinct was chosen chairman and Austin Burdick of Arnold secretary. There were delegates from Arnold, Garfield, Whittier and Myrtle. After discussion, Geo. W. Peterson was endorsed as the choice of the meeting for County Commissioner.

The plank on the South Platte river bridge are pretty well worn out, and for some time there has existed a necessity for a new floor. The bridge tools inad equate to accommodate the large travel on that road. In view of these facts the county commissioners decided to replank the bridge, and at the same time, as the additional cost would not be- very great, widen the structure to sixteen feet, thus avoiding the dead-locks that often occur at night on account of teams being unable to pass each other the roadway being so narrow. Although somewhat in doubt as to the faads available, the board decid ed to wideaBad rebuild, and advertised for bids. On the board's proposition, the following bids were received: J. F. Hinman, $2.80 per lineal foot J. L. Means, 3. 27 per lineal foot. EL D. Thomson, $2.99 per lineal foot. Mr. Thomson filed a supplementary bid, to the effect that if allowed to build on Mr. Means specificatiens, he would make a reduction of about 18 cents per foot, or $3.81 per foot. The financial: question being undevel oped, action 6a the bids was deferred un til sfter the 'July settlement with the treasurer. The board is in a perplexing situation. When asked a year or so ago to vote the necessary fands to rebuild the bridge, they refused. Now the commissioners have to grappel squarely with the pror blem shall they close the bridge or shall they repair It The former seems impos aible. and to do the work without funds mttsirtoaeeffss " - -- mtm ' - s;m;srM way.

The surveying outfit for the Sioux City Ogden Short Line passed through the city going east, their destination being Plainvlew, Pierce County. The engineers had previously gone forward by rail. After leaving here going-west, the engi neers ran a Has up the north side of the North Platte until they met the east bound party Bear Gerlng not far from the Wyoming line. The road has now made two surveys through Nebraska, one directly west from Plainvlew striking the JNorth natte near we western line or the State and other jdiverging southwest from Plainvlew intersecting 'the Platte oppo site this city. The engineers are un doubtedly ordered back to commence the Kork of locating the. line;, but which route will he .taken is-, of course not known, as that will be determined on the report of the engineers. - The road apparetmy.MS. strong packing peruaps the IUindu Ceaeral and will surely be built State Levy. The county clerk has received notice that the following amounts have been levied on the valuation of Lincoln county to be collected from the. assessment of 1889: General fund five mills, school fund four-eights mill, university fund three-eights mill, reform school fund oae-seventh mill, institute feeble mind I fund, one-eighth mill, total six and one seventh mills. The total valuation is $2,295,682 .54 and the above levy will raise $14,102.02, which is the amount charged to the county by the state. In 1887 the levy was 1 : In 1888, 7 and this year 6 1-7 mills, so It will be seeu there Is a gradual decrease in the state levy.

S. Hoagland and Nesbitt & Grimes. : On calling the case, the defendant filed a plea in bar, asking that he be discharg ed on the ground of having once been placed in jeopardy on the same indict ment This was replied to by the pros ecution, which brought out an answer from the defendant's attorneys and gave rise to several collatteral questions, con suming ihe time of the court until nearly 4 o'clock. In the mean time the Defen dant's attorneys had drawn up a paper ob jecting to or challenging tho special venire which had been filed by mistake ... and this was brought to the attention of the court Considerable talk followed, but finally the defense was permitted to withdraw the motion. Everything then seemed to be ready to empanel the jury. The prisoners attor neys announced that they were ready, and the court said he was exceedingly anxious to get the jury of twelve men and allow the others to return to their homes. But the prosecutiou did not appear to be quite ready and proceeded to consult. hile waiting the J udge took occasion to admonish reporters and the pre&i gen erally not to publish anything calculated to interfere with or prejudice the case. promising to give the offender as long a term in jail as is possible. The prosecuting attorneys having finish ed their consultation, a motion for con tinuance was filed. A disposition to ue the motion being manifested by the Defendant's attorneys, the Judie ruled that the question was'not debatable. After examining the statute, the Judge aunounced that he was uot prepared to decide the motion, and a recess was take n until 7:30 p. m. The court convened at 7:30 o'clock, when the court granted the motion for continuance, the time set for the next hearing of the case being October 21. The defendant's attomej's excepted to the continuance, demauding an iuunwliate trial. The cotttiuuance was granted on ;i letter from Geo. H. Tiedemann dated Irondale, Colorado, July 24, 1889, directed to "Dear friend Robert," stating that he. could not come at this terra of court because there was not time to make arrangements and for other reasons H promised to attend at next term if the case was continued. Attoruey Bixler iu his affidavit sets forth the facts that he expects to prove by thewltness Tiedemann and swears that the state can prove the facts by no other witness; that the attorneys for the Sfate have done all iu their, power to procure the attendance of said Tiedemann at this term of court; that they have caused a messenger to go to the state of Colorado to see Tiede raann nd that he has agreed to attend as a witness if the case can be continued sixty days.

Whereas, the Supreme Grand Sire has in His inscrutible wisdom removed from the lodge on earth to the Sovereign Grand Lodge on high our beloved brother Chas. V. Price, P. G. of Walla Walla Lodge No. 56, who died at his home in Nebras ka City, Whereas, it is always well that the vir tue of the departed should be remember ed, that the living may draw therefrom lessons of wisdom ; and Whereas, Brother Charles W. Price was ever a faithful Odd Fellow, a kind and considerate neighbor, a devoted worker in the cause of humanity, it is proper and right that we should recog nize the noble qualities of our departed brother, therefore Resolved, that iu the death of Charles "W. Price this lodge has lost a devoted brother, a faithful co-worker, whose memory we will ever cherish, and whose death has caused a void in our lodge which can not easily be filled. Resolcetl, that the heartfelt sympathies of our brotherhood be and are hereby ex tended to his sorrowing widow and son in their bereavment. Resolved, that an engrossed copy of these resolutions be presented to Sister Price, that they be spread at length on the records of our lodge aud be published in the local papers. Memorial Services.
