JAMES M. RAY is a candidato for the office of
County Judge, subject to tho nomination of the
Republican county convention.
V i hereby announce myself as a candidate for
Coroner, subject to nomination by the Republi
can county convention. -8AML. ADAMS.
The Tribune now presents a fine
array of candidates to the Republi
can convention from which to se
lect county officers, the list being
increased by six.
Sheriff" D. A. Baker will ask a
rcnoinination at the hands of the
convention, basing his claims upon
a ood record and the custom of
rewarding a faithful officer with a
second term. As a worthy andre
spected citizen our readers all know
Mr. Baker's high standing. The
position of sheriff is not so easy a
place to fill as many imagine. Al
ways requiring nerve and vigilance,
the officer must exercise a high de
gree of judgment, to successfully
discharge his duty. To Mr. Bak
er's credit it can be said he has
proven that he possesses these emi
nent qualities to a degree that fits
him for the place.
Chas. P. Dick presents his an
nouncement for county clerk, and
will go before the convention with
a strong and enthusiastic backing.
For nearly three years he has occu
pied the position of deputy under
Mr. Evans and has filled the place
with credit to himself and to the
satisfaction of his numerous friends.
Mr. Dick is one of the early set
tlers of Lincoln countv, having
taken a claim in what is now Med
icine precinct some years ago,
enduring the trials and hardships
of an early homesteader's life. For
three years he was assessor in North
Platte, and has filled the position
of city treasurer and treasurer of
the school district for two years.
Butler Buchanan presents his
compliments to the people and also
announces that he is a candidate
for clerk, taking his place in the
triangular and we trust good na
tured struggle for the nomination.
Mr. Buchanan is deputy county
treasurer, having occupied the place
under a portion of Mr. Grady's
term and during the entire term "of
Mr. Osgood. He is a skillful,
careful accountant, an excellent
penman, possessing executive abili
ty of superior order He has been
a resident of the county some eight
years, having first settled in the
precinct which bears his name,
where for a number of years he
was engaged in rearing stock. He
will have a strong following.
The struggle for superintendent
grows more animated as the time
for the convention approaches, F.
M. Chute, of Nichols precinct be
ing the latest candidate. Mr. Chute
is an old teacher, his last teaching
having been about two years ago at
Oxford, in Furnas county, where
he was principal of the schools.
Concluding to change his vocation,
he located in this county, buying
a quarter section of land eight
miles west of the city under the ir
rigation ditch and commenced in
the stock and nursery business, now
having ten acres in fruit and three
in strawberries. Mr. Chute is a
gentleman in all respects worthy
of the position to which he aspires.
Samuel Adams is a candidate
for coroner, an office that is not
much sought after but neverthe
less important. The coroner is the
only officer that ranks the sheriff
on certain occasions. Mr. Adams
has resided in North Platte for a
number of years, as contractor and
builder, for the past year or more
carrying on the undertaking busi
ness. He is a good man for the
office of coroner, having had much
experience calculated to fit him for
its duties. j
A. O. Kocku is an old and w;eT
known citizen of North Platte and
his friends will present his name to
the convention as a candidate for
Sheriff. Mr. Kocken was a candi
date for nomination two years ago,
and has numerous friends who re
cognize his ability to fill the office.
Mr. Kocken is a Swede by birth,
and while he beleives that the
Swede Americans by their faithful
adhesion to Republican principles
are entitled to recognition by the
rmrtv. he does not base his claims
on that fact, but purely on his
rights as an American citizen. In
this he will be sustained by all
The Tribune would like to see
all of its friends secure the positions
they are seeking, but it recognizes
the fact that such a consummation,
however desirable, is almost among
the impossibilities. If we ask for
the earth we will not get it, but we
will by so doing place those things in
jeopardy which are already conceded
to us, and which are only our
reasonable portion. Looking at
the matter iu this 'light, The Tri
bune feels that it should not become
a party to plans that will surely
foraant discord and as surely result
in injury to all concerned.
A SHORT STOP.
"Of all the useless and idiotic
cranks on earth, he who thinks that
no good can come save from his
own narrowness, is the worst. The
Tribune last week in an item re
garding the Alliance Labor meet
ing, said: 'We want reforms iu
manr things, but a reform was
never Tet inaugurated or supported
by the democratic party, and never
will be.' " Telegraph.
We presume when the editor of
the Telegraph clipped the above ex
tract from The Tribune he wrote
a very able editorial from the text,
showing the great reforms and be
nificent laws inaugurated and p:iss
ed by the Democratic party, at least
if he did not an excellent opportu
nity was allowed to pass unim
proved. The opening starts out
grandly and the mind is led up to
the point that something good is to
follow. The stop is too sudden,
creating, as it were an intellectual
collision or jar. But perhaps it
was only intended for a "short
Frank E. Helvey, State Master
Workman K. of L, writes a vigor
ous letter sustaining commissioner
John Jenkins of the State Labor
bureau in the course he has adopted
to obtain statistical information,
the refusal of local assembly 3343
of this city to answer questions be
ing the cause. The charge has
been vigorously made ami pretty
well sustained that the condition
of; laboring men is largely -due to
their own extravagance, or to be
plain that they spent too large a
proportion of their earnings for
liquor, an article that is unneces
sary, does no good, but is highly
injurious. On the other hand, says
Master Workman Helvey, for years
our speakers, writers and lecturers
have claimed publicly and privately,
and we have all lent our feeble
voices to the same assertion, that
the laboring man was steadily
crowded into a situation where the
returns of his labor would barely
support animal life, and often then,
only under the most degarding and
disgusting conditions, and we have
as constantly asserted that if the
people would establish a bureau for
the investigation of these matters
we wonld prove it by facts and
figures that would simply be as
tounding in their conclusiveness
and bring at once to our aid the
potent weapon, "public opinion,"
with which we could successfully at
tack the foundations of any abuse,
no matter how deeply grounded in
our social or political fabric. The
people have listened to our demand
and given us the opportunity to
prove our position by establishing
the bureau for us, when lo! at the
first call for proof the first witness
we ask to testify for our case, friend
though we thonght him to be,
comes forward and says: "I refuse
to make a statement that will show
what I spend for bread and what I
spend for beer."
Is it possible that the assertion
of the enemies of labor are true?
That commissioner Jenkins ques
tions are a probe that enter the very
heart of the cause of poverty ? From
the vigorous, prompt and energe
tic kick made by local assembly
3343 that is a logical inference, a
conclusion reached by Mr. Helvey
when he says: "Iu other words,
may it not be possible that we have
spent too much for beer iu propor
tion to what we spend for bread?
If so let us know it, that the mis
takes of this year may be the wis
dom of the year to come. " As lo
cal assembly 3343 will likely be
heard from again, the conclusion
must not be too hastily reached.
There will be a caucus of Repub
lican electors of the Second Ward
held at the Court House Saturday,
Sept. 21st, atrS p. m.. to place in
nomination seven delegates to the

THE MISSOURI RIVER, NORTH
PLATTE & DENVER.
From a circular issued bT the
committee we excerpt the follow
ing: The Eastern terminus of this
Railway is at Albion, Neb., where
it connects with the great North
Western system, giving us access
to Chicago, Duluth and all the
Eastren markets. From Albion
the line runs through Boone, Gree
ley, Valley and Custer counties, and
enters Lincoln county near the
north-east corner; from thence it
takes a south-westerly course to
where it crosses the North Platte
River, about half a mile below the
U. P. Railway bridge; from there
it takes a westerly cousre through
the City of North Platte, crossing
the South Platte River about three
miles west of the city, and then
continuss in a westrely direction to
section 9, township 13, range 32,
where it takes a south-west course
to the town of Wallace, making
over seventv miles of railway to be
built in this county.
At the low valuation of 5,000
j per mile, it would add 350,000 to
! our taxable property, and at the
rate or taxation prevailing in the
county would pay into the county
treasury $15,000 per annum, while
the interest on the bonds would be
but 7,500 or one-half as much as
the new railroad would pay in
This would be the immediate and
direct benefits, but would be only
a small portion of the benefits to be
derived from the building of this
The railroad will undoubtedly at
an early day be extendid from Wal
lace through to Denver, t affording
us a competing line to the great
Western market for our farm and
Work must be begun on the
road in Lincoln county during the
year 1S90. and the line must be
completed to Wallace and trains
running during the year 1891.
This time is as short as it is pos
sible to make it, iu view of the fact
that, before any part of the line is
built in this county, 125 miles of
line from Albion to the north-east
corner of this county must be first
built. Again, no bonds are turned
over until the road is completed to
Wallace and trains running, nor do
they draw any interest until after
such completion .

and position of principal and superintendent,
and that the said defendant Henry W. AUwine
had been guilty of gross misconduct while in
cumbent of said office and position; that he pros
tituted naid oflice and position to his selfish. gain;
that he introduced text books without regard to
the good of the schools, but for the mere gratifi
cation of his own partizan and unpatriotic preju
dices; that he used his position to compel schol

passed an examination which would demonstrate
ability sufficient to graduate scholars from the

8. That at divers times between the 3d day of

said, and the 2d day of September, 1889, the said
Patrick II. Sullivan. Victor Von Goetz, Chas. E.
Hendy and Henry W. AUwine met and confedera
ted together aud maliciously with evil intent con
spired each with the other to usurp the functions,
Dowers and franchises of the Board of Education
of said school district of Nerth Platte City, in the
County of Lincoln and State of Nebraska, and
further usurp and unlawfully exercise the func
tions or the office and position of principal teacher
and superintendent of the schools of said dis
trict. 9. That on the 2d day of September, 1889,
which said day was by law a legal holiday, said
defendants iu pursuance of the said conspiracy
as aforesaid, met at the court house in North
Platte City and unlawfuUy Hsurping the func
tions, powers and franchises of the said Board of
Education aforesaid, and being fully conversant
with the fact that said day was a legal hoUday,
aud that no legal business, save an adjournment
to a day certain, could be done, and that the
President of the Board of Education, JohuE.
livans, was absent from the state, proceeded to
unlawfully and illegally actae-the Board of Edu
cation of the school district aforesaid.
10. That they thereupon served upon the said
Beach I. Hinman aud John Bratt a notice com
manding them to appear at the said place of
meeting forthwith; a copy of which said notice is
attached hereto and marked exhibit A.
11. That the said Beach I. Hinman and John
Bratt attended said meeting protesting against
the acts of the said defendants, save only an ad
journment to a day certain.
VJ. That notwithstanding the protests of the
said Beach I. Hinman and John Bratt, the said
defendants proceeded to usurp and did usurp the
functions, powers and franchises of said Board
of Education of said school district, and thereby
paralyzed and made impossible legal action of
13. That on the 3d day of September, 1889, the
said defendants did, in furtherance of the con
spiracv and usurpation aforesaid by force un
lawfully intrude the said .defendant Kenry W.
AUwine upon the schools of said district and that
the defendant Henry Y. AUwine did thereupon
usurp the office and position of principal and su
perintendent of the schools of said district, and
continues and threatens to continue from day to
day such usurpation until the end of the school
vear, relying whollv upon the conspiracy with
the said defendants Sullivan, Von Goetz and
Hendy, as aforesaid, whereby the School Board
mav be paralyzed and legal action be made im
possible. All of which is to the irreparable inju
ry of this plaintiff and the taxpayers of said
school district a nd patrons of said schools.
11. That by reason of the matters and things
herein stated and set forth, the former action of
said Board touching the management of the
schools of said district by said assistant superin
tendent, Frank Bobbins, has been rendered in
operative and nugatory; that legal action by
said Board of Education touching the affairs of
superintendent of said schools is made impossi
ble: that this plaintiff, the taxpayers and patrons
of said schools are deprived of the cdacational
benefits guaranteed by law; that lack of disci
pline prevails in the schools; that great expense
and inconvenience is about to be incurred by
patrons and parents of said schools by sending
children to other places to get the advantage of
educational facilities which are now denied them
in said schools; and that great dissatisfaction
prevails in the community; that said defendants
threaten to continue the unlawful usurpation
herein complained of until the end of the school
year and unlesB immediately restraiaed general
demoralization will take place in the schools of
said district; that great and lasting injury will
be done this plaintiff, the taxpayers aud patrons
of said school district and the children attending
13. That great and irreparable injury is now
being done this plaintiff, tho taxpayers andjja
trous of said schools, and no legal remedy exists
whereby the plaintiff, taxpayers and patrons of
said schools can have relief from the injuries,
matters and things herein alleged and set forth.
The plaintiff therefore prays an order restraining
the said defendant Henry W. AUwine from ex
ercising any of the functions, powers or fran
chises of the office of principal of said schools or
in any manner intermeddling therewith; the said
defendants Patrick II. Sullivan, Chas. E. Hendy
and Victor Von Goetz from exercising the func
tions, powers and franchises of the Board of
Education of said school district, from all acts
amiujrorabettinir, or tcndhi" to aid or abet, the
eaid Henry W. AUwine in theT asarpation of the
office of superintendent of said schools. and from
drawing any warrant or in any manner attempt
ing to pay the eaid defendant AUwine any of the
school moneys of said school district; and that
on the final hearing of this cause said injunction
be made perpetual; and that defendants be for
ever enjoined from further exercisiag the func
tions, powers and franchises of the School Board
of the District of North Platte City, and from ex
ercising the functions, duties, powers and fran
chies of the office of principal and superintendent
of the schools of the school district of North
2d. And plaintiff further prays for an order
from this honorable court to the County Attor
ney of Lincoln county, Nebraska, directing him
to file snch information, criminal and otherwise,
as shall compel the said defendants to answer
to the charges of malfeasance in office and usur
pation of office as herein set forth. And plain
tiff prays for such other and further relief as is
ju6t and equitable.
