Special Election Called
For August 19th.
Elsewhere is published an ordinance
authorizing a special election to bo held
August 19th nt which voters will exer
cise their suffrage on whether or no wo
shall havo Sunday huso bull. At this
same election there will bo submitted
two othor propositions; one voting
bonds for tho construction of a. city
hull. nnd the other bonds for paving
troot intersections. The ballJSpreposi
tlnn is not of much interest to Tho
Tribune, but tho city hall and the street
paving nre two questions which are of
vital interest to all.
Tho main feature of the city hall
proposition is that it Is to provide a
homo for tho flro department. This is
narticulorlv important at this tlmo for
tho reason that interest has been lost
In the department by tho younger elo
montofour men to whom we must
look for our service. The lost Interest
i. Urcr'alv due to tho lack of occommo.
Nations provided for the firemen; these
accommodations not having kept pace
with the development of the city; In
fact lhy aro no bottom if as good, as
-when tho department was first organized
vir a. auarter of a century ago. With
well equipped quarters for the appara
tus and & sulUblo meeting or club
roqm for tha members, new life would
be injected Into the department, the
membership quota wouiu ue iun, "
the boys would then have reason to
feel that tholr services are appreciated;
, ronti there is no evidence that
their work Is given any thought by the.
average citizen. It is an unawpuwu
claim that tho wolfaro of the city de
mindi that then bo at least two paid
firemen, ono of whom will bo on duty at
tho fire house during tho day and one
at night, so that tho apparatus can be
gotten ready in an instant for a run to
a fire. It may bo arguod that such has
not boen provided in the past and may
ndl be needed In the future; but this
..Anm.nt u not sound buslnoss. Our
property during all these years has
been in jeopardy for tho reason that
a loss of fivo minutes In getting to afire
during a windstorm might mean an un
controllable ftro and a property loss
. mnny times tho cost of n city hall.
The street paving proposition Is ono
that should strongly and favorably
appeal to tho resident who for twonty
fivo or thirty years has seen a nllijb of
money expended on Dowoy and ITocus't
streets. Tho bonds as proposed wquld
be fur tho purpose of having the street
' intersections, the cost of tho paving be
tween tho cross streets to bo borne- by
tho ownor of ubuitlng property. The
ilistiiets to bo pnvfd woujd b DuVrey
and LociiHt streets from Front to Sec
ond, two thoroughfuroB on which thero
is tho. greatest traffic:. In tho work of!
street paving, North Plntta is much be
hind the uverngo Nebraska or western
town. Grand Island atarted several
years ago to pave it streets and so
popular did it prove right at tho begin
ning that proporty owners wore anxious
that tho work be extended andincrqased
as rapidly ns possible, and sincu thoa
more or loss paving has- been doma- in
It is truo that first expense- i rather
heavy, but tho work i permanent, tho
cost qf up keep for a long term, of years
is practically nothing, so that is tho
long run it is not only cheaper but. you.
have good streets all tho tlmo.
Tho Tribuno trusts that our voters
will fully acquaint themsolvea witfia the
merits of these two propositions, and
that they will satisfy thomsolvos. that
both should be successful on August
An Old Debt Paul.
Lincoln county's treasury was or
rlched yesterday by tha sum of five
hundred dollars which was paid on an
old debt owed by McPheraon county.
This debt was contracted eleven yean
qgo, and represented jail charges of a.
prisonor sent hero byMcPhajraon county
for safe kooping. Tho prisoner was ono
named Robinson, who was charged with
murdor. There was no jail in Mc
Phorson county, hence ha was sent here
for safe keeping until tho trial waa had
in that county. He was detained her a
number of months, and at the end of
tho Incarceration tho jail fees amounted
to about seven hundred dollars,
A bill was filed with the McPhorson
county commissioners, but thero novor
was sufllclont money to pay tho claim.
It was suggested sevoral .times
