STEAL SCI,', FJtOM THE
, HUSH MEKCANTILK SAFE
A bold robbery occurred at tho Rush
Mercantile Co. grocory just before
noon yesterday when a nervy Individu
al sneaked to the safe, opened tho un
locked door and took therefrom $G35
lit currency and Union Pacific and
Individual checks. At tho tlmo tho
robbery occurred tho Burk show pa
rade was passing and customers and
clerks had gono to tho front door,
and though there but a couplo of
minutes. It was sufficient time for tho
thief to get in his work. Neither pro
prietor or clerks had noticed any sus
picious looking persons in tho store
at the time, the supposition being that
all in tho store were customers and it
was not noticed that any one lagged
behind when those In tho store moved
forward to seo tho parade, nor was It
noticed that anyone in. tho store made
any hasty attempt to get away follow
ing tho parade. Tho money and
checks wore found to bo missing a
few minutes later, and Mr. Rush had
opened tho safo 15 minutes beforo and
know tho currency and checks were
there. Tho safe stands at a desk near
tho center of tho store and is some
what obscured by tho desk and boxes
and barrels. It Is probable that the
thief reached the safe by crouching
in among these view obstructions, but
how ho got out after taking tho funds
Is not known.
A couplo of months ago a similar
robbery occurred, and the perpetrator

Last week when thoso 'favoring a
continuation of the "Wilson" time cir
culated a petition to continue that
time in opposition to tho resolution
passed by the council, a majority' of
tho merchants did not express them
selves on the subject, but simply said
they would do as a majority favored
doing. It now devolops that qulto a
few of those who so expressed them
selves have learned that the farmerb
of the section tributary to the city who
presented the petition to the council
consider the ignoring of the resolution
a direct slap In tho face and that It
has created among thoso farmers a
feeling against the North Platte mer
chants which should not exist. At the
tlmo the action in support of tho
"Wilson" time was taken it was sup
posed that congress would 'repeal tho
law within a week or so, but a majority
of the congressional committee to
which tho matter wns referred have
recommended that the law remain
in force until October. In view of this
congressional action merchants who
oppose the "Wilson" time yesterday
started a movement to reconsider tho
action of last week, and the question
will bo thoroughly threshed out nt a
meeting of merchants to bo held nt
the court house tomorrow evening.
Personally wo favor a later closing
hour; we arc not accustomed to quit
ting work In the middle of tho after
noon, which we practically do under
tho present plan, for wo are running
one hour nnd forty-two minutes ahead
of sun time. We also believe that if a
later; closing is a real benefit and con
venience to the farmers, their wishes
should be taken into consideration.

being pursued by tho courts.

Yesterday there was prosentod to
tho county commlsslbnsrs a petition
signed by 1150 names, nearly one-half
of hto Blgners living outside of North
Platte, asking that an election bo
called to vote on tho proposition of
making a five mill levy each year for
five years for tho purpose of obtain
ing funds with which to build a new
court house. Tho commissioners took
cognizance of the petition by calling
tho election for TuesdnyV July 22 and If
the proposition carries, tho-first of tho
five-mill levies can'bo Included in tho
general levy which the commissioners
will make on or about tho first of
August. This court house levy would
thcroforo start with tho 1920 taxes and
end with tho year 1924. A five mill
levy for five years on the present val
uation would raise between $175,000
and $200,000, not all of which need be
used If not required.
Tho general opinion as expressed by
farmor and town rosldonts allko is
that if n court houso Is built it should
be such as to moot tho requirements of
future years. Building present needs
Is where North Platto made It3 mls
tako In Its school buildings nnd where
Heifchoy Is now at a disadvantage with
its school building. The population
of tho county is Increasing yearly, and
with tho increasing number of people
comes an increasing volume of busi
ness at all the county offices, none of
which are now ample to properly care
for the business. This is apparent to
every Lincoln county man who trans
acts business at the court house.
There is absolutely no lire protection
for the' records of tho county treasur
er, tho county superintendent and tho
clerk of the district court, while It is
questionable if tho poorly constructed
vaults of the county judge nnd county
clerk would withstand a fire. "So resi
dent of Lincoln county who hasalu
ablo private records Would for a mo
ment kcop thorn in a building po lit
tle protected from fire ns is the Lin
coln county court house. If the dis
trict court records alone were des
troyed the title to hundreds of tracts
of land in Lincoln county would be
placed In JeoparMy, whllo the destruc
tion of tho county treasurer's records
would tangle up matters to such an
extent that it would require many
thousands of dollars worth of clerk
hire to replace them and then the
records would rot bo , omplete. And
so with the records of tho county
