As an evidence of the "New Woman"
morement in North Platte it was noticed
that one evening last week two gentle
men, wives and babies were out riding
on bicycles. The natural supposition
would be be that as of old, the babies
would te riding with their mothers.
Such was not the case, however. The
men were taking care of the babies while
the mothers rode along in front perfectly
free and untrammeled.
We more fully, than ever, have rea
sons to believe in the principles of evolu
tion and that North Platte has the honor
of being the point where the commence
ment has been made. One of the ladies
of the town was called to her kitchen
door by a tramp this week and very
naturally expected to be asked for food.
She was astonished, however, when the
request was made for a piece of soap.
As soap is one article" that tramps are
not credited with using, it is to be pre
sumed that the movement is now up
ward in the tramp circles and an evolu
tion for higher development commenced.

gardener, came down from Denver last
week, and after looking over this section
has decided to locate here and engage in
truck farming. He has secured seventy
five acres of land of B. Beer which he
will get in shape for next season's crop,
the intention being to plant the entire
tract to vegetables. This season he will
put out twenty acres of celery on land
west of town owned by C. L. Patterson
which he has leased for the season. Mr.
Ripley has had many years experience
in gardening and pronounces the soil in
this section particularly well adapted!
for this purpose. j
J. McConnell, of Somerset, brought
to this office yesterday samples of pota
toes which ho raised last season. They
are very smooth-skinned, large in size
and possess qualities which make them
especially fine eating. On account of
the drouth, Mr. McConnell succeeded in
raising only about one hundred bushels
of them. He has this season put in a
small irrigation plant with which to
water a tract of land planted to fruit
trees, grapes and strawberries. He has
also put in ten acres of alfalfa, and if it
proves successful this season he will sow
fifty acres next year.
Victor VonGoetz retired from the
office of mayor last night after a year of
service that has proved very satisfactory
to the people. Mr. VonGoetz began bis
duties as mayor with the determination
that his administration would be an
economical one. He was full aware
that the debt hanging over the city
while not an extraordinary one, was
larger than should be, and he also real
ized that the only way it could be wiped
out was by a curtailment of the running
expenses, w itn tnis in view street worn
ana other improvements were kept down
to the lowest notch possible, and as a
result the expenses of the city have bean,
some $1,200 less than usual. Mr. Baker,
our new mayor, is a conservative maa

steps of Mr. VonGoetz in keeping down

For the good of the fire department
it is hoped that the present little squab
ble resulting over the election of a chief
will not be fostered and expanded. From
the evidence produced before the council
it would seem that the election at which
the chief and assistant were elected was
regularly called, that the attendance
was as large as is usual at such meetings,
aad that the charge of illegal voting is
Bot well sustained. The Tribune has

the meeting held was a protracted one;
The presence of the auditors was duo
principally to a desire to lea rn who the
appointees of the new mayor would bo.
Mayor VonGoetz rapped the council
to order at 8:15 and after the minutes of
two previous meetings had been read
and approved, the finance committee re
ported that they.had audited the books
and vouchers of the city treasurer and
had found them correct.

the council had no power to act in the

Butler Buchanan asked the city to re
imburse him in the amount of 87.70 for
overpaid interest on a city warrant, but
the council thought Mr. B. should re
cover the amount from the party to
whom it was paid.
After several bills had been approved
or allowed, time was given the clerk to
write up the minutes of the meeting,
after which the old council adjourned
sine die. Previous to adjournment how
ever, Mayor VonGoetz thanked the
members of the council for the support
they had given him. During his ad
ministration the running expenses of
the city had been cu t down over 81,000
and he hoped that the present adminis
tration would be able to make a like re

eventually be paid without the aid of

ment S. L. Bristol had been elected chief
and W. II C. Woodhurst assistant chief,
and requesting that theso be confirmed
by the council. This was followed by a
remonstrance against tho confirmation
of Bristol and Woodhurst on the ground
that they bad boon elected by votes cast
by certain parties who were not active
members of the department. The op
posing factions were represented to the
number of eighteen or twenty, and a

Not only is diamond cutting not a

is one involving a most humiliating
system of espionago to the worker. Each
man is held strictly to account for the
stones he receives on going to work ia

carefully taken when tbe unfinished
work is turned in at night to be locked
up in a safe against the return of the'

of theft aro great, though" a dishonest
