V. H. JIcKYOY APPOINTED
POSTMASTER IX THIS CITY
P. II," McEvoy received a wire last
evening announcing that President
"Wilson had sent his naroo Ic the sen
ate for confirmation as posmaster at
North Platte. It Is probable that Mr.
McKvoy will receive his commission
and have his bond approved In tlmo to
enter upon his duties January first.
In point of residence, Mr. McEvoy
is one of the city's oldest Inhabitants,
having locate.l hero la and has
slnco been a continuous resident. For
nearly ten years prior to locating In
North Platte ho had been a moniDer of
the Fifth United States Cavalry, a reg
iment that saw more active sorvlco in
the trans-Missouri country and en
gaged in more conflicts with hostile
Indians between 1SC8 and 1878 than
any other troop. To havo been a mem
ber of the "Fighting Fifth" was In tho
early days considered a high honor
and Is considered so today.
Mr. McEvoy has ever been an un
compromising democrat, and for mauy
years has been on tho "firing line." He
has been as devoted to democratic
principles as ho was to tho flag in his
soldier days. Particularly active was
he during "Bryan's First Battle," and
no doubt ho will well remember tho
many hours that Judge Grimes,- The
Tribune editor and others wasted
breath in an attempt to convince him
that Bryan was an untried statesman
and that democratic success menat the
ruination of the country. But Mac's
faith could not be shaken; others
might refuse to worship the then dem
ocratic Idol, but not he. For his cour
age in fighting for and staying with
principles that were more often con
demned than approved he has received
That Mr. MoEvoy's appointment is
well received by citizens Is attested
by the many congratulatory hand
shakes ho received last night and is

This month will mark the beginning of a NEW ERA of prosperity for the people of
'North Platte and vicinity.
To be more prosperous you must save a part of what you earn even if only a little.
You must also handle your income wisely, so that your expenses will be taken care of
easily. Then you will have a surplus left to represent a gain in wealth.
To be successful in saving, two things are necessary. FIRST: You must have a defi
nite purpose in mind. SECOND: You must be systematic.
In order to give every man, woman, boy and girl in this city valuable assistance in
solving their financial problems, we announce the opening in this bank of a new De
