The annual meeting of the Episco

port of the financial condition proved to
be very satisfactory. The members of
vestry were re-elected, with the excep
tion of Major Walker, to whose place B.
C Clinton was elected. It was voted to
erect a mission chapel in the Third ward
on the block south of the school house,
and work on the building will soon be
gin. The Easter offering at the church
Sunday amounted to $150.
By reference to the published call
elsewhere ia these columns it will be
seen that the officers of the Lincoln
county agricultural society are getting a
move upon themselves. The Tribune
believes that it would be a good plan for
the management to arrange for a mid
summer racing meeting to be held about
July 4th', in connection with a monster
celebration. This could be made a very
interesting exhibition, and a profitable
one to the society. In addition this
would have a tendency to have our horse

When the average skeptic learns of

The fair and dance given by the
ladies of St. Patrick's church on Monday
evening was largely attended and well
natronized. An excellent supper was
served, in fact many said that its com
pleteness would entitle it to be called a
banquet. Numerous articles of fancy
work were offered for sale, and a pleas
ant time is reported by those in attendance.

those who were not compelled to did not
as a rule offer their stock for sale, but on
the other hand became purchasers.
Owing to the absence cf the paBtor,
no special or elaborate Easter service
was prepared at the Methodist church
last Sunday. Chancellor Crook
ot the Nebraska Wesleyan University
filled the pulpit morning and evening,
and those who failed to hear him missed
a rare spiritual feast and intellectual
treat. His theme for the morning was
"The Resurrection" and for an hour and
more he held the congregation's rapt at
tention with his rich thought and elo
oquence. The evening service was de
voted to the presentation of the inter
ests of the Nebraska Wesleyaa Univer
sity, and what Methodism is doing
along the line of higher education for the
heart and intellect. The discourse was
masterly and convincing. The chancel
lor's visit among ub will be remembered
as one of the bright spots is our church
history, and he will be greeted with an
overflowing house when next he comes.
Last week D. B. WeJpton, general
ammt for the Roval Insurance Co was
in this city and filed an information
charging Sidney Sspp with the embez
zlement of 184.00 while acting as agent
for the company at Wallace. Sheriff
Miller went to Lincoln and obtained
requisition papers from Gov. Crounse
and started for Oklahoma territory. He
found and arrested bis man at Perry in
that territory. Since migrating to the
land of the cowboy and cactus Sidney
has changed his political habit, is now
fullfledged calamityite, and according to
the nress renorts was secretary of the
local sans cullotte. Sunday morning an
attorney here received a letter of inquiry
from him as to what it would cost to fix
it up. This gentleman frankly said that
Mr. Welnton was in no mood for com
promising, as the practice was becoming
toe common with many agents. Sheriff
Miller also had requisition papers for
Otto Richter. late of thiB city, for ob
taining a signature to a note through
fraudulent representations, wherein F.
M. Heck was the complaining witness.
The sheriff expected to find this indivi
dual at Woodward, Oklahoma.
-The construction of the Paxton &
Hershey irrigating ditch which will tap
the North Platte river in town 14, range
33, and run east ten miies through the
6500 acres ot land owned by that firm, is
now an assured fact. The survey has
been completed for some time, and last
Monday an Omaha contractor, who came
up with Mr. Paxton, made a tour of the
line and submitted a bid for the con
struction of the ditch, and "the contract
is probably awarded by this lime, as the
bid was satisfactory to the interested
parties. It is stipulated that the ditch
be completed in fifty-one working days,
which would bring the date of comple
tion June lBt. We have not been in
formed as to the exact width and depth
of the ditch, but it will be sufficiently
large to irrigate the Paxton & Hershey

The several churches of this city
were very handsomely and appropriately
decorated last Sunday for the Easter
services, xae unurcn or uur rsaviour
besides a largo display of lillies and'
potted plants had a great amount of cut
flowers as a result of a subscription by
the members. The services by the rector
were very fitting for the day and occa
sion, and the choir pleasingly rendered
Borne choice anthems. The Presbyterian
church was decked in a similar manner
and the pastor's words during the morn
ing service were peculiarly pertinent
The evening service at this house of
worship consisted of responsive readings
and recitations by members of the Sun
day school. The Lutheran church mom-
ben appeared to be imbued with a spirit
of friendly rivalry as to who could most
materially assist in the decoration of
their church. Rev. Foulk made an inter
esting address at the morning service
and the evening service was similar to
that of the Presbyterians. At St Pat
rick's church the display of flowers was
remarkably fiae, the remarks of Rev.
OToole struck a responsive chord .in the
hearts of his congregation, and the
rendition of Leonard's mass by the choir
was well received by the audience assem
bled. The municipal election will be hold
on Tuesday next, and there promises to
be' considerable friendly rivalry between
the candidates for clerk and for the
office of treasurer. For the former C. F.
Scharmann and H. C. Neebitt are candi
dates, and while both are capable young
men, The Tribune has a "hunch" that
Mr. Scharmann will win. He was the
almost unanimous choice of the citizens'
meeting held several weeks ago and
must necessarily have a strong follow
ing. In the contest for treasurer John
Sorenson and Charley Adam6 will make
a pretty race, but it is generally conceded
that Sorensoa will come down the quar
ter stretch at a rapid gait and pass under
the wire several feet ahead of his ap
ponent. For mayor Victor VonGoetz
has no opposition, and it is well, for the
people generally want him to be their
chief executive, and it would be a cour
ageous man who might consent to oppose
him in the race. For city engineer Paul
Meyer has a clear field, Clint Patterson
refusing to be a candidate. For mem
bers ef the school board the tickets will
bear the names of Meedsniee J. D. Bfrge
and A. E. Longley, and William Henry
Harrison Fikes. In this contest some
one will be left, as there are but two
members to be elected. The ladies are
up for re-election and having served the
people faithfully and well, will probably
receive a big vote; in fact Mr. Fikes and
his friends will have to do some tall
rustling in order to defeat either of the
fair candidates. In the First ward Alex
Stewart and Charley Monagan will con
test for the honor of representing that
section in the city council. The follow
ers of both candidates are certain of
victory and the result will be very close
it may result in a tie, as was the case
last spring with Hendy and Herrod. In
the Second ward C. F. Iddings has a
clear field, but in the Third Dave Scott
and C. B. Jordan will test their popular
ity. It is pretty generally conceded that
David, like his namesake of old, will slay
his political Goliah.

I was informed yesterday that a sub

A number of the neighbors of Mrs.

a surprise party. About twenty gathered
at her house in the afternoon, and upon
presenting her with a dress for a birth
day present they learned thai they were

the correct date. This was the starter
for a good time, and it soon became too
warm for Mr. Snyder, the only man pres
ent, and was forced to seek shelter elsewhere.

Views of Mr. Belton.
Editor Tribune: Your remarks In
ast week's issue are very fair and just,
but you have been misinformed in some
points. The cost of the jail wbb 87,700,
the iron cells costing the balance of the
$10,000, and are ornaments not needed in
a High school building. I am reliably
informed the $60,000 Kearney bonds
built three school houses, the High
school costing $35,000. It is built of
pressed brick and has slate roof. Such
gorgeous building in North Platto
would make us look like a Haytian
major general with cocked hat and daz
zling epaulets barefooted.
What the district wants is a good sub
stantial building, the building to show
its character, sufficiently roomy for
many years to come, built out of North
Platte made brick, tin roof, and heated
with steam . Give North Platte mechan
ics the preference so that the mcney
will be kept at home, and be a benefit to
our people, instead of being sent abroad.
Mr. Walker, who is a practical builder,
studied over the matter and came .to the
conclusion that $20,000 and the "material
in the old school house would erect just
the building required. So he got up a
petition to the Board of Education re
questing them to call an election to vote
on that amount of bonds. He has spent
considerable time circulating it and has
tho required number of signers, which
will be presented to the Board of Educa
tion at the next meeting, and there is no
doubt but the board will act promptly.
There are several reasons that the
house be built this year: We need it
badly; the banks are loaded down with
money seeking investment, consequently
the bonds would bring a good premium;
all building material is cheap owing to
the depressed times, and it would give
employment to our mechanics and labor
ing men. and would have a good effect
upon our city generally.
If any persons are not satisfied with
Mr. Walker's petition they are at liberty
to get up a petition to suit themselves
and present it to the Board of Educa
tion and the board can Belect which
petition to call the election upon. There
is no time now for conference with the
school board, for if there is any unneces
sary delay the school house cannot be
built this year. James BeTaTok.

We wish to express our sincere thanks
to the lady Maccabees, our friends and
neighbors who so kindly assisted us with
their care and words of sympathy, cheer
