The Chautauqua Closes.
The North Platto Chautauqua closed
Sundoy evening with a lecture by Mr.
Cooley, who is connected with the socitl
reform movemeht in Cleveland, ,in
which ho gave a synopsis of the work
being done thero with wayward men,
women and children. Much had boon
accomplished by placing the prisoners
on n farm owned by the city, and treat
ing them as men and women and not r.s
The closing days of the Chautauqua
Were as interesting as those of the early,
part. The appearance of the Wagner
Shank opera company gave the people
an opportunity of hearing high class
music by trained vocalists; their pro
grams were certainly fine, and especially
the selections given Sunday afternoon
Very interesting was the illustrated
lecture given Friday evening by
Bonarjee, the Hindu, in whiqh the
social conditions of the Hindus were de
picted by word and on canvass.
Bishop Tihen, of the Catholic dio
cese of Lincoln, occupied the platform
Sunday nfternoon and interested the
large nudience with his address on the
social conditions. He was followed in
the evening by Mr. Cooley.
Taken as whole the entertaining and
educational features of the Chautauqua
were a success, but as usual the re
ceipts were less than the expenditures,
the existing deficit being about $800.
Sunday evening Judge Warren, in .be
half of the directors, asked for popular
subscriptions to cover the deficit with
the result that about $600 ,was raised.
Probably one-third of the sum was
subscribed by stockholders of the as
sociation and on their subscription
credit will be given for the amount of
the assessment, so the stockholders
will still face a deficit of $450 or more.
Just a Reminder.
Let's see if we remember correctly
this was the year President Mohler, of
the Union Pacific, said North Platte
was to have a newt round house
and a lot of other terminal im
provements -this in lieu of a new de
pot. As Mr, Mohler is a very busy
man, and moy overlook small matters,
we feel justified in jogging his mem
ory. Fifty or a hundred thousand dollars
distributed to aborers between now and
January 1st would help out matters in
North Platte, therefore Mr. Mohler,
let's start work on the terminal im
provements. Alex Struthcrs Dead.
Alex StVuthers, a prominent resident
of North Platte in the earlier days, died
at Douglas, Ariz., Friday.' The
funeral will be held in Denver next
Thursday. Mr. Struthers was at one
time employed as a machinist in the
local shops, later was elected sheriff
and still later held the office of county
treasurer. He left Lincoln county the

mechanic on some of the Colorado
roads. For several years he had made
his home in Douglas.
In speaking of the deceased, the
Douglas Dispatch said:
Alexander Struthers, aged 64 years,

where it will be prepared to bo sent to

Mr. Struthers was well known in
Douglas, as well as in railroad circles
throughout the west. For some time
he was joint master mechanic for the
Colorado Midland, Rio Grande Western
and Denver and Rio Grande roads, with
headquarters at Midland, Col. About
eight years ago he was tendered, the
same position with the El Paso and
Southwestern and come to Douglas.
He remained here for three years after
ward leaving for Colorado. He was
prominently connected with David
Moffat in the construction of the Moffat
line from Denver to Salt Lake City.
Mr. Struthers, accompanied by his
wife, came to Douglas about five months
ago for a visit. He has since been the
guest of his dnughtor, Mrs. Charles
S. Iverson, and his two s$ns, David
and Androw. Another son is em
ployed on the Moffat road at present.
Andrew Struthers, sr., a well known
railroader of this city, is a brother of
the deceased. Another brother
William, resfdes in Grand Junction,
Col. Mrs. David Robson, of Twelfth
Btrcet is a sister. Another sister re

Mr. Struthers was a Mason, as well
as belonging to several other orders.
Immediately after the death of Mr,

as a great shock to the community,
in which ho was well known and highly
