There are said to be about a
dozen candidates for the position of
city marphal, eleven of whom will
surely be disappointed. A return
to the old law, which made the office
of marshal elective instead of ap
pointive, would, we believe, prove
more satisfactory to the people. D.

whom North Platte never had, filled
his office the first year by a direct
vote of the people.

terday morning Sheriff Miller sur
prised the plaintiffs' in the replevin
action after the stock had been re
moved to its present quarters, by.
jumping upon the goods with bill
for $164 taxes. This was an un
expected turn, and at first the
plaintiffs thought they would riot
pay the same; but as taxes follow
the property Mr. Miller informed
them that he did not care whether
they did or not as he would hold
the property. As there seems to
be a question as to the validity of
the original levy, there may be
some lively litigation over the matter.
A recent issue of the Kansas
City Journal contained the follow
item concerning our former more or
less respected towns man: William
J. Cannon, better known as "Uncle
Jimmie" Cannon, applied for a mar
riage license yesterday at the office
of the County Recorder Queal. He
gave his age as 74 and told Deputy
Recorder Davis his story about be
ing the last survivor of the Alamo,
and of his being wounded so many
many times in the Indian wars.
Deputy Davis asked him who the
happy lady was to be, and Uncle
Iimmie promised to call again to
day and get the license. He said
the lady was his former wife, who
got a divorce from him while he was
off in Indian wars. He said she
thought he had been killed and that
she got a divorce so that she could
transfer some property and have no
question about the titles. But now
that she knew he was alive, he said
she was going to marry hyn. "oyer,

The records in the U. S. signal
office in this city show that the
average rainfall in May during the
past twenty years has been 2.72
inches. The greast precipitation
during any May was in 1888, and
the least that of May, 1893, being
4.93 inches in the former and about
one-third of an inch in the latter.
On May-24, 1881, 2'.58 inches of rain
fell, which is the greatest amount
recorded in any twenty-four conse
cutive hours. The average date
on which the last killing frost oc
curs in spring is May 8th, and it
may be necessary therefore for
growers of early vegetables to look
out for frosts next month. Last

The Farmers and Merchants'
Ditch Co. has made arrangements
with Paxton & Hershey whereby
the latter will furnish the former
with forty water rights for this
season. The Farmers and Mer
chants' Co. will at once commence
the construction of a large lateral
to connect with the P. & H. ditch,
and by the first of June water will
be running through the entire
length of the F. & M. ditch. This
arrangement means that the people
along the latterditch, or at least
quite a number of them, will have
sufficient water to irrigate this sea
son's crop, and a great benefit will
be derived therefrom. The con
summation of the deal is one which
should please all.
Fire Wednesday night com
pletely gutted the Knights of
Pythias' hall in Keith's block, de
stroying about six hundred dollars
worth of furniture, carpets, etc.
The fire was discovered about
eleven o'clock, and had then been
burning about a half hour. An
alarm was sounded, -the fire depart
ment quickly responded and the
flames were subdued in a short
time thereafter. A liberal quan
tity of water was used and much of
it run through into the rooms below
occupied by Wm. Landgraff and the
postoffice, thereby causing some
damage. The general opinion is
that the fire .was caused by the ex
plosion of a lamp. The A. O. H.
held a meeting in the evening and
as is the usual custom left the
lamps burning for the janitor to
extinguish. The janitor in charge
went to the hall about twenty min
utes after the lodge adjourned and
was greeted by a dense volume of
hot smoke, and it was just at this
time several persons on the street
also noticed the fire. The flames
did not reach the rooms in which
lodge accoutrements are kept else
the loss would have been much
greater. The loss of the Knights
of Pythias is covered by $300 in
surance, but two organs ' oyiied by
other societies - iiiid which -are a
wreck, we believe were not insured.
Six or eight charters belonging to
secret societies were consumed.
The loss on the building is not
covered bv insurance.
