considered various candidates for the
federal offices in this city. Among tho
names considered was W. B, McNeel
for postmaster, Frank Becler of Her
shey for receiver of the land office and
Editor Eamea of Maxwell for register.
To this conference not a single North
Platte democrat was invited. Among
those who attended the conference last
night were Messrs. Bcattyand Marcott,
of Brady, Holcomb, of Maxwell,J. It.
and Dave White and Henry Pulk, of
Sutherland and V. B. McNeol of Rose
dale. Following the naming of this slate

The estate of Geo. W. Stewart,
bankrupt which has been pending ad
ministration in the United States courts
of Chicago since Aug. 1906, will now be
closed. Practically all the assets this
estate had was the 930 acres of land
east of this city. In order to realize the
best returns from this land, it was sub
divided into lots, blocks and acreage
tracts and these have now all been
sold. The total proceeds of these numer
ous sales amounted to $90,311.25 ex
clusive of interest. These sales were all
within a period of fivo years, during
which time 240 residence lots, 102
acreage lots, 400 acres of hay land and
1G0 acres of land for the Burlington
right-of -way were sold.
Moro residence lots were sold during
this period than have been sold at any
time in Lincoln county within a period
of five years. The improvement of the
residence lots with permanent sidewalks
and crossings, sewer, graded streets
and water mains greatly facilitated the
sales. This is the only instance in Lin'
coin county where additions have been
so improved. Atty. Wrn. E. Shuman"
has had full charge of the estate
here from tho beginning and
has done a great deal of work to
accomplish these results. The estate
has allowed him altogether fees amount
ing to about 5(5,000 for his services.

Better Roads are Imperative.
The condition of tho roads leading
into North Platte, and especially those
from the north, is such that it is
proving a menace to tho trade of the
city. It would seem that immediate
and effective step3 to better the condi
tion is necessary, and to that end the
road committee of the Chamber of Com
merce will get busy. When farmers
say they have stopped marketing and
trading in North Platte because of poor
roads it is timo that the business men
of the city wake up.

A Sale of Merit.
To inuagurate a clothing salo in the
heighth of the fall season, when nat
urally trade is brisk, and sell goods at
prices far below the regular selling
price, is somewhat unusual, but Claude
Weingand does unusual things about so
often he seems to have a desire to do
things tho "other fellow" don't do
probably he likes to be original. We
don't know just why he is selling Kirsch
schbaum and other high grade suits and
overooats at a discount of twenty per
cent, and high grade furnishing andshoes
at a like discount, unless itl is because
last week marked the anniversary of
his store and during that first year
trade was so much greater than he
anticipated that he is willing that the
public generally share his pleasure by
giving them the above reduction. In
opening his store a year ago Mr. Wein
gand chose the term of "tho ouality
place," moaning that tho goods he
sold had tho guarantee behind them;
that quality should be the first consid
eration. Ho has held to that rule, and
the merchandise that he is offering the
public today at tho reduced prices is
the best that manufacturers produce.
No clothing holds a higher place than
the celebrated Kirschbaum. and the
other merchandise is as equally reliable.
This sale is conducted by Mr. Wein
gand personally the stock is not in
the hands of some "hot air" and irre
sponsible come today and go tomorrow
Eromoter;-no red streamers flaunt the
reezo but just a plain sale where a
discount of twenty per cent means good
goods at one-fifth less than the regular
Magazines make nice Christmas
gifts. I have a complete list and can
save you money on club orders. Mrs.

Platting New Addition.
One hundred nnd sixteen acres of the
Cody land west of the city and south
of tho railroad tracks is being platted
in town iocs ana acre tracts, anu as
soon as Engineer Meyer completes the
work the new addition will be placed
on the market.
The east side of the tract is sub
divided into blocks and lots and the
west partinto acreage plats. 'While this
addition is now somewhat distant from
the business center, the building of the
new round house and other terminal
improvements in the west part of the
city will no doubt create a demand for
lots 'in the new addition.
The streets in the addition will be
named after generals under whom
Colondl Cody serred in the military service.

Suggest Public Reception.
Postmaster Davis has written tho de
partment suggesting that the federal
building be formally opened with a
public reception. The date for the re
moval of the postoffice has not been
definitely set; if the building is not
ready by December 15th. Mr. Davis has
suggested, on account of the holiday
rush of business, that it be postponed
until afterChristmas, and in such event
the reception would be held on the
afternoonZand evening of January 1st.
Should tho department favor such a
reooption, invitations will be issued to
postmasters and land officials of the
state, to tho senators and congressmen
and to othor prominent personaces.
North Platte has reason to feel proud
of its federal building and a public re
ception and a public reception would be
a proper dedication of the edifice It is
hoped that the department will take
kindly to Postmaster Davis's sugges
Demand Better Train Service.
At tho meeting of the directors of tho
Chamber of Commerce Wednesday
evening tho following resolution was
uesoiveu, mat it is tne unanimous
judgment of the Chamber of Com
merce'of North Platte that the Union
Pacific railroad company should at once
install at least a motor car service on
its North River branch line west of
North Platte in addition to its present
train service; and that said company
alio run its local train that arrives at
North Platte in the evening through to
Julesburg and back from Julesburg
early in tne morning.
In our judgment North Platte is n-'
titled to at least as good a service on
the North River branch as the company
maintains on its Kearney and Stapleton
branch wbero tho traffic and revenue is
not nearly as great as on the North
River branch. That North Platte is1
being descriminated against and is
losing a large amountof tradejby reason
of inadequate train service nest of the
Resolved, That tho secretary trans
mit a copy of this rasolution to A. L.
Mohlar, president of ths Union Pacific
