Killed in the Yards.
"Teddy" Mills, of Creston, Iowa,
was killed in the local yards this morn
insr while stealing a ride in a car loaded
with lumber, having been caught nnd
jammed to death by the shifting of tho
lumber in one end of tho car when
jojted by the switch engine. Mills,
who was about thirty years of nge, had
been employed at Pocatello, Idaho, and
started for his home by beating his way
on trainfl. He had three companions
with him in the car when ho reached
this terminal last night, and when the
train Btopped, a discussion arose as to
whether it was safe to remnin in the
car while tho train was being switched.
Two of the men concluded to vacate
tho car, while Mills and another man
by the name of Conroy, of New York,
concluded to spend tho remainder of
the night in the car. They laid down
on tho floor between the lumber and
the end of the car, and were not dis
turbed until about 5:30 this morning
when the car was bumped and tho lum
ber shifted, catching both of the men.
Conroy was caught but not severely in
jured, while Mills was pinned tightly
against the car with the lumber resting
against his stomach. Both men made
mado efforts to extricate themselves,
Mills groaning and breathing hard, but
could not do so: then came a second
jolt by the switch engine and Mills
quit groaning and breathing, Conroy
heard approaching footsteps and by
yelling attracted the attention of the
switchmen, who -attempted to release
him, but could not get into tho car.
Tho switch engine was called into ser
vice, and by jolting the car from the
reverse end the lumber shifted and the
men were extricated. Dr. Kerr was
called, and upon examination found
Mills dead, having been crushed inter
nally. Cnnroy's only complaint wbb
that his left arm felt as though it was
Mills' body was convoyed to the
Howe & Maloney undertaking rooms,
and an effort is being made this fore
noon to locate tho relatives at Creston.

Judge Grimes' Cat Fish.
The Jast., issue of the Bridgeport
Blado contained this truthful fish story:
Last week The News Blado noted the
fact that Judge Grimes and E. P. See
berger of North Platte, with M. B.
Smith and Claude Delaney,. had gone
down to Smith Bros., ranch near Broad
water for a f,ew days' fishing, ' and in
timated that some startling news might
be expected from that quarter.
Arriving at the lake Judge GrimeR
laid aside his judicial dignity, placed it
carefully in his grip, and donned a pair
of overalls. Ranker Seeberger gave
hjs money to Claude Delaney, and, re
lieved of fhis burden, he was ready to
enjoy tho Bport, and it developed the
fishes were ready, too.
.Four hooks, properly baited, were
dropped into tho water with one "ker
plug," and instantly and simultaneous
ly every man had a bite. Some envious
people may suggest that they were
mosquito bites, but they were not.
They were really truly fish bites, and
as they drew in the catch it was
found that there were two and three
fishes on each hook, while others had
clung to the captured ones tails as they
were drawn from the water.
And that is the way it continued all
through the day. Before evening the
boats had been filled several times,
while on the shore fishes were knee
deep for a half mile back in all direc
tions. Once when the Judge paused to
wipe tho perspiration from his brow,
he remarked to Mr. Seeberger, "Say!
I always enjoyed fishing as a sport, but
a job of hoeing sugar beets, would be
a pleasant pastime, contrasted
with this thing of fishing in Mort
Smith's lake." But when he gave his
attention again to the task before him
ho found that a big cattish had not only
swallowed his hook and line, but was
actually chewing the end of his pole.
When the big fellow was landed it was
found that it weighed just 8J pounds,
but as the party stood gazing at it,
they could seo that it was rapidly ex
panding, and when they telephoned the
news to Pat Rowlan that fish weighed
12J pounds. The judge insisted that
John Wehn should bo informed in
stantly, and when Mr. Wehn took the
message hot from the wire that cat
fish wos no longer a minnow it
weighed exactly C7J pounds and was
That night when the tired fishermen
tried to sleep they could hear fishes
swimming about in the washbowl.
They could see them silontly gliding
along tho floor, and ever and anon a
big catfish would strike the wall with
his tail, causing the sleepers tb awake
with a start But at last when the
biggest fish of them all jumped into
bed with Judgo Grimes and Mn See
berger, they arose with a shriek and
We must clean out our entire summer stock

reputation of carrying.' Do not dolay toolong; you need
these goods now and now is the time to buy.

Republican Makes Complaint.
Editor of The Tribune:,
I am informed thatBO-called repub
lican caucusses have been hold in tho
city of North Platte to chose delegates
to the republican county convention to
meet at North Platte to send delegates
to the republican state convention to
convene at Lincoln, July 30th; thaf.
these caucuses have been held in secret
without any published notice naming
the time and place and inviting all
republicans to attend and take part in
Thfs is the first time in the history of
North Platte that .republican caucuses
have been held without first giving a
public notice of the timo and placo
signed by the Beveral committeemen.
On behalf of moro than ninety per
cent of the rank and file of the Repub
lican party in the city of North Platto
who by the unrepubllcan methods have
been deprived of an opportunity of
participatiug in tho said caucuses I
protest against the same and call upon
the Republican committeemen to pub
lish calls for onen renublican caucuses
in tho several words )f the city so that
all republicans may have an opportunity
of participating therein.

The committee of five progressive re
publicans appointed by Medill McCor
mlck, to ascertain from" Governor

or Roosovelt, were informed by the
governor yesterday that ho considered
Taft the regular republican nominee
and that as such he felt obligated to
support his candidacy.
Secretary of State Doyle. Auditor of
Public Accounts. McCullough and
Attorney General Stead were waited
on by the committed and gave the same
answer as did Gpvernsr Deneen. Andrew
Russell, candidate for state treasurer,
made no reply, ,but told chairman Mc
Cormick ho would send his answer by
Lieutenant Governor Oglesby, who Is
at Elkhat was asked by letter by Chair
man McCormlck and has made no
answer as yet.
Following the interviews with the
state officers the progressive republican
committee held a conference at the end
of which Chairman McCormlck an
nounced that the piogressive republican
would put a third party state ticket in
the field, but there would probably be
no new county tickets.
