Red Cloud has been called to mourn
the death of one of her oldest residents,
having resided in Red Cloud for twenty
years and supposed to be one hundred
years of age, says tho Superior Journal.
It was a parrot owned by one Dr. Tulley.
This parrot was years ago owned by Span

Mrs. Lydia E. Smith and children,
of Blue Springs, were in the city Thurs

sued the saloon keepers of that town for
the loss of her husband through drink.
She secured $2,000 damages. They car
ried it to the supreme court and tried to
wear her out. The courts all decided in
her favor. She now invests the money in
land for tho benefit of her boy, whom she
says shall not live in towns under the in

The troops at Fort Robinson are under
orders to be ready to take the field at a
moment's notice to intercept the Chey

Pine Ridge agency without permission.
It is feared the old Indians cannot re

depredations enroute. Chief Tangled

Fort and reported themselves in a starv

has ordered rations for them and they

From military authority it is loarned
that Forts Niobrara -and Robinson will
each likely get $50,000 appropriations
from tho present congress for additional
buildings in shape of officers' quarters,
barrocks, a chapel aud school room,
says the Valentine Republican. This
will make these posts two of the most
corapleto in the west, and will give them
a degree of prominence which insures
their being garrisoned many years.
The case iu the federal court entitled
Kit Carter Cattle Company vs. The Har
lem Cattle Company, is decided. The
decision read by Judge Dundy is in fayor
of the plaintiffs, and gives a decree of
$92,000 and costs. Tho security in which
the chattel mortgages are based consists
of herds of cattle, besides a trust deed for
6,000 acres of land included in various
cattle ranches. This is final so far as the
Nebraska federal court is concerned. Tho
cross bills and various side issues were
presented with all the force their re
spective advocates could command.
Kimball citizens are rejoicing. They
have won a great victory, and one that
will aid the growth of the town and the
settlement of the country and make this
a place of note. The proposition to bond
the precinct for $24,500 to aid the con
struction of a water power and lake at
Kimball was carried by a vote of 85 for
to 11 against. Work will bo commenced
at once. It is estimated that the cost of
the lake and water power plant will bo
nearly $60,000. The work will be done
under the direction of the Kimball county
water power and supply company, a
company organized for that purpose.
The Forepaugh circus will go on this
year under the old name, and one of the
features of it will be a band of Sioux In
dians, which were only secured after long
diplomatic correspondence with two gov
erments. They were secured in Canada
by C. A. Davis and Major Yates. Davis
is the one who secured the white elephant
from oiam for Barnum, and when he sets
out to get a feature for a big show he
ets there." In speaking of the matter
Davis said: "The application for
permission to take a band of Sioux from
their reservation in the United States was
first preferred to General Morgan, Com
missioner of Indian Affairs. He took the
ground that it would be injurious to the
morals and welfare of the Indians to
travel with a circus, and cited the effect
of travel on some, of the Indians who
went with Buffalo Bill in defense of his
position. He prevailed on the president
to refuse the request We thought the
effect would bo different, because if the
Indians could travel about and see the
countless numbers of the white people
they would concludej as old Red Cloud
did in 1868, when he came to Washington,
that it was no use (o tight with a people
who aro as numerous as blades of grass.
Red Cloud never left his reservation after
hb found out the extent of the white
people. But General Morgan and the
president remained firm, and we went
over to Canada, and that required diplo
matic correspondence by the yard with
both governments, but we got the In
dians. Thoy insisted on written contracts,
with their own signatures attached, which
were made through interpreters, before
they would come a step."

There is a bill before the house of
represetatives providing for the erection
of postoffice buildings in all towns where
tue postal receipts amount to 3,UuU per

results would be beneficial to the general

Uncle Sam to Buy at Home.
There will be no British blankets
bought for the war department or build
ing material imported for new govern
ment quarters under tne Mclvmley tariff
bill. The present tariff act places on the
free list "articles imported for the US6 of
tho United States provided the price of
the same did not include the duty." This
is omitted from the McKinley bill, and
tho effect will be to discourage govern
ment contracts with foreign contractors
who, under tho present law, have an ad
vantage over both the American producer
and tho honest importer. "The govern
ment," says Major McKinley in his report,
ugbt not to buy abroad what it can
buy at home." This is very sound doc
trine for people as well as government.
Moreover, the change referred to stops
a peculiarly meau sort of fraud. Foreign
contractors who are supplying the govern
ment under tue present law take advan
tage of their freedom from duty to bring
in au extra supply of the goods contracted
for to sell in tne market in competition
with the products of American labor. The
McKinley bill is good in what it does not
as well as what it does contain, 2T. Y.
