Unaided and alone Chief Mecomber
inarched olght gamblers to jail Satur
day about cloven o'clock.
Suspicious that gambling was being
indulged in in tho negro Joint on east
Front street, Chief Mecomber took a
walk down that way. As ho approach
ed the building ho noticed a big negro
standing at tho door with his face to
tho cast. Tho Chief approached the
watcher quietly, pulled his gun on
him and said: "Open tho door quietly,
walk on you tiptoes, don't cough or say
a word and lead mo to whore the boys
aro playing." Tho negro watcher
obeyed; and as the chief followed to a
rear room and stood in tho door, the
colored-pi? yers never oven looked up;
thoy did not know tho chief had fol
lowed the outside watch Into the
building. Tho chief waited a minute
or two until tho stakes on the table
liad run up to six or eight dollars.
Then ho throw his gun on tho players,
stopped forward, grabbed tho money
on the table and said "this pot is
mlno." Then ho virranged 'tho eight
colored men in a column of two and
marched them to jail.
ana were haled Into court for a hear
ing. Greeley Jacobs, E. Klssine, C. L.'
Thomas D. Thomas and Sam Aber-
nathy were lined $55J30 each. Jacobs,
and Kissino paid their fines, C. -L.
Thomas and D. Thomas elected to lav
out their fine, Abornathy gave bond;
and later Jumped It. Arthur Hunt
ter, who was not in the game was let
go, and Wm. Johnson was let go on
payment of the costs. ,
These arrests will probably result'
in closing up tho negro gambling
joint on east Front.

Lieut. Loren Sturgis arrived homo
Sunday morning from twenty-two
months overseas service in tho postal
department. Few men overseas had a
more varied experience than Lieut.
Sturgis, who for months was stationed
at different points within the fighting
zones and for days at a time tho burst

actually seen, hundreds of them ex
ploding in such close proximity, to him
that many times ho thought his time
had cemo. He traveled over much of
the war devastated section of Franco,
saw in reality the horrors of war, and
had oxperlnces that If written up
would make a mighty Interesting book.
His last month or two was spent In
Paris where he had occasion to learn
much of that normally gay city. "Pop"

companied Mr. Nelson to tho grounds
and found quito a colony of these tour
ists, Homo of whom had been camp
ing there slnco last Saturday morn
ing. One of these tourists who drove
In from tho west while we wero thore,
said he had heard of tho grounds
whon he reached Osdon, and Sunday
a tourist who reached hero from tho
east stated that ho had first learned
of the grounds at Bloomlngton, I1C,
which shows how tourists communl
cato with each other as thoy meet on
tho road, and is also ovldenco of tho
advertising North Platte Is rocolve

the grounds.
It Is not truo that all these auto
tourists who camp out do so In order
to save expenso, for last evening wo
conversed with soveral parties who
had high priced cars, were refined
people and apparently wellito-do, one
party remarking, that his trip from
Sacremento to New York would cost
him four times as much as though ho
had traveled by rail.
These tourists spend hundreds of
.dollars with our merchants, our gar
aces and auto accessory dealers, our

that he had benefited financially by
