It is rather tough to have a fellow
come up to a reporter, after the latter
has succeeded in running down a good
item, and have him request that nothing
be said about it, thus leaving the op

of the so-called "scoops" are obtained.

It is said that the Paxton fc Her-
shey canal company will take out its
head-gate and put in a new one, and the
North Platte Land & Water Co. is fig
uring upon the same thing, as is also
the Conway, Neilson & Hunter Company.
These changes are made necessary by
the drifting sands, which have caused
some trouoie tne past season, it is
claimed that with a properly constructed
head gate this difficulty may be avoided.
Night watch Davis had an exciting
chase last evening up in the west end
after a half dozen "hoboes", among
whom he thought was a suspect who
was wanted upon the charge of shoot
ing with intent to kill, and for whom
there is a reward offered of S200. After
ordering them to halt, which they ne
glected to do, he chased them into
Beach Hinman's cornfield, firing a cou
ple of shots at them. He succeeded in
overhauling four of them, and after dis
covering the man he wanted was not in
the gang gave up the pursuit.
At a meeting yesterday of the board
of directors and stockholders of the
South Side irrigation canal company it
was decided to at once begin the work
of putting in the headgate for the same
in the North river, as owing to, the low
stage of water the work con be done
very expeditiously and economically.
John Hmman was the lowest bidder for
the work and to him the contract was
awarded. He will immediately begin
operations thereon and push the work
vigorously. It was reported that but
eight miles of ditch out of a total of
forty-two miles yet remained uncom-
pIeted,-upon which work was being
pushed. An auxiliary head-gate will
lso be immediately put in the South
Platte river, and the submerged flume,
of which a portion was washed a trifl
out of line last spring, will be repaired;
and if no unusually'bad weather sets in
or other unavoidable delays occur, the
company hopes to have the water -flowing

"Anse" Haley wished to establish
his reputation as a "broncho buster,"

was disposed' to be "ornery," but he was
not discouraged from his attempt After
proceeding but a short distance the
broncho concluded to have a little fun
with the genial Tbm, and the way it ele

If indications are anything North

made without interfering but very little
with the regular time card.
