work to make tbe affair a huge success,
and it will doubtless prove so.

The preliminary hearing of Sidney
Sapp was had last Friday before J. M.
R3y. After hearing the greater portion
of tho testimony "hizzoner" concluded
that it would be well for the prosecutor
to file a new information, and try the
accused upon a charge of petit larceny,
instead of for a felony. This for the
reason that the smooth agent had traded
insurance for a store account, and the
original complaint did net charge him
with embezzling anything but money.
After deduoting the value of the mer
chandise he received tbe amount of his
shortage would be below that allowed
for grand larceny, thus making the
offense a misdemeanor instead of a
felony. The prosecuting witness did not
care to reduce the complaint, as he said
it would be no satisfaction for the com
pany, or partjculajr punishment to the
criminal, to have'bim' put in jail' for a
few daysT and' tbe prosecution was
dropped. On Saturday Sapp confessed
judgment in favor- of the company for
$95 ,00, the amount of his shortage.

some. The groom was dressed in the
conventional black. TBen in tho pres
ence of the hundred people present, the

pany with a number of invited guests

Last nichs about eleven o'olook the
fire alarm was squndod and the depart
ment nuickly responded. Investigation
developed the fact that a small blaze was
in progress in the house occupied by
John Adams, just west of the residence
of W. S. Jreniston. It is said it ongi
nated from a lamp explosion. Two
streams of water were quickly turned on
and the poor, incipient little lire bad no
show whatever for its life. Right here
we wish to register a good hard kick at
the way in which the average volunteer
department operates at a fire, and we
will not flatter by saying that tbe North
Platte department is any exception to
rule. In case an alarm is given the first
company to arrive generally begins to
flood the premises with water before the
fire is located. This, too, whether the
wind is blowing or not, and when there
is no immediate danger of adjacent prop
erty. Perhaps this is done, on the thepry
that if you can only get enough watering
side tho yard you will extinguish the
flaaies. ThiB is the roost difficult loss to
get an insurance company to adjust If
firemen would" only remember that when
they find a bed, or a simUar article; of fur
niture, in flames )i a residegcetheir first
duty is to try and get the article out of
doors instead of trying to drown it where
it stands. By following this rule, which
should be the first instruction impressed
upon the young fireman, much injury to
tbe building and other property might be
avoided. This is brought to the atten
tion of .the boys, not for the purpose of
finding fault, bat in the hope of impror-.
ing the service. Tbe loss at (he above
fire was rtight. Hardly had the boys
reached their respective hose bouses,
with their "apparatus, when a second
alarm was sounded. This, time it was a
Heap of manure over m the Third ward,
which was probably ignited by some
joker for the purpose of seeing the boys

Insurance rates throughout Ne
braska and tho country generally havo
been raised about twenty per cent Tbe
companies claim this was on account of
the number of incendiary fires occurring
last year which are common to a busi

exact oriein of all fires beinir civen Buch
an increase would be justifiable. In
other words whether this has not been
made a convenient excuse in order to
account for the raise.
The following from the .Petersburg,
Ind.,- News is self-explanatory: "It is
reported here that Robert A. McMurray
a resident pf North Platte, Nebraska, is
a candidate for marshal of that- town.
'Bob,' as he was called here by all that
knew' him, was a resident f near Peters
burg for some twenty years, and served
during the time as deputy under Byron
Brenton, and he made such a popular
and efficient officer that he was urged by
his friends to allow his name to go 'be
fore the convention as a candidate for
sheriff, but he refused to do so. 'Bob' is
a life long and true republican, and spent
time and money in every campaign for
the success of his party. He was always
a sober, honest and industrious person,
ft man of good judgment in making
arrests or matters pertaining to the best
interests of a town or community, and it
is said of him that he never once looked
into a dictionary to see what the word
fear He would make a fearless
officer in the execution of his duties in
the maintenance of tbe law, and were
the Pike county republicans allowed a
voice in tbe matter they would make his
nomination unanimous, for they know
his worth," ' '
