Last Thursday there was as neur an
entire suspension of business through
out tile United States as could well be
obtained. Mourning draping* were
hung out early in the morning in O’Neill
and picturs of the dend president draped
in black were displayed in many windows
Business plaoes began to close at 10
o'clock and by noon every thing except
restaurant* and hotels were closed
General memorial exercises were held
in the evening at the Presbyterian
church, conducted by Rev. Haydon,
with music appropriate to the occasion.
A glowing tribute was paid to the
martyer president and the hand that
caused] his death and the spirit which
actuated it strongly denounced. No
former president, not excepting Wash
ington and Lincoln, commanded so
generally through his term of office the
regard of the American people and no
death was so universally mourned
throughout the Anglo-Saxon world. A
week of mourning was proclaimed at
the court of King Edward VII.
Memorial services were held at the
high school last Thursday for the dead
president. The progarm reudred was:
Song—“Ncare." My God to Thee." essay
—William McKinley as a Citizen and a
Soldier;” Miss Alice Turner; essay—
"William McKinley as Statesman
and President,” Miss Colista Payne;
song—"Lead Kindly Light,” high school
sextette; address by T. V. Golden; song
—"America.” chams. Mr. Golden said:
"No president, with the possible excep
tion of Monroe, was more generally be
loved than McKiuley. Llis name will be
as dear to the Amercan people as the
names of Washington and Lincoln.
"The speaker said he had studied the
character of William McKinley for the
purpose of discerning what there was in
that character to enable him to become
so great a leader and to attain the posi
tion he ocupied. "I do not belive in
luck said Mr. Golden. "1 believe the
truely successful man is he who is en
dowed with the proper qualifications for
sucoessland who labors hard and unceas
ing to attain it. His youthful work in
school, his early manhood as a soldier,
his later life as a congressman and gov
ernor and more recently his statesman
ship displayed us president are proof
of his character.”
Attachment suits wire begun Monday
against the J. G. Trauerman ranch pro
perty twelve railep southwest of O’Neill.
The Security National bank of Sioux
City and the Elkhorn Valley bank of
O’Neill ure the credritors bringiug suit.
The O'Neill bank brings its aclion to
recover against the real estate belong
ings of the ranch. The bank holds notes
amounting to about $8,000 against
Trauerman. The ranch comprises 1040
acres and buildings and the estimated
value is considerably more than the
bank securities. The Sioux City bank
attached the cattle,hay and other chattel
effects. They have claims amounting to
over $12,000. There are something like
500 head of cattle on the ranch. Mr.
Trauerman was in the city the
Drst of the week, leaving Tuesday for
the east, llis representative here, L.
C. Wade, informed the bank that
ariangemeuts would be made within the
next ten days to clean up the indebted
ness. The value of the ranch with its
equipments is considerably more than
the amount of the claims agains them.
Uev. C’ W. Lowrie of Lincoln is
spending the week among old friends
in the city, having come here to occupy
the Presbyteran fulpit Sunday last.
Kev. Lowrie has grown bigger, older
and better since the writer and he
bammed the streets a dozen years ago and
we are glad to Bee him engaged in the
great and good work of bettering a
needy world. Since leaving O’Neill Mr.
Lowrie has acquired diplomas at Belle
vue, Prinston and Edinburgh and in
pubiio address shows that masterly
touch of the scholar. It was an edify
ing pleasure to listen to Kev. Lowrie
Sunday evening in a word portrayal of
the machless character of the ‘‘ltose of
Sharon,” the Suviour of man.
Tne speaker called attention to the
unsatisfying things of earth and said
that man might revel in the wealth and
bauble of this world and his heart yet
crave for something satisfying. Christ,
the Savior, was pointed to as the one
to supply the need. Kev. Lowrie will
return Saturday to Lincoln where he
has been at home resting for a few
month since returning from Edinburgh,
and expects soon to take up per
manent work in the ministry.

Norfolk Asylum Burns.
Norfolk, September. 23—The asylum
for the insane in this city wus badly
damaged by lire today.
Three of the inmales are missing, but
it is bclived that only one lost bis life.
At 3 o’clock a blaze was discovered in
the E ward of the hospital. At 1:30 it
was beyond control and had burned out
the new west wing entirely.
The attendants succeeded in getting
out all but one of the 291 inmates, Vic
tor Casper, of C ward. Attendant Til
lenberg of the ward says that be
brought Casper out in the ball from his
eell twice aud that he returned each time
Having the other patients to look
after, Tilleuberg lost track of him aud
he is missing. A man named Jespersou
of the E ward was rescued by chopping
in from the outside. He was severely
burned around the bead and shoulders.
One patient was rescued by means of a
key tied to a tish pole, which was pass
ed up to him. Patients John McGovern
aud Pete Oberg are missing, but are
said to have been seen since the fire.
Efforts to rescure ihe inmates were
difficult in the extreme.
Shrieks aud yells of some of them
tilled the air and many fought against
the attempts of the rescuers.
Others were completely cowed aud
the attendants had no difficulty in lead
ing them out of the buruiug building.
The out buildings, including the laun
dry, chapel, kilcheu and engine house,
were saved dy the use of blaukets and
salt water. The south side walls ure all
that remains standing of the main
The hospital has a lire brigade, but it
was useless, as the water supply gave
out before the tire could be checked.
The hospital being over two miles out
of Norfolk, the city tire department
could do nothing.
It took six hours for the fire to buru
from the west to the east end. This
gave time for the people to remove all
the furniture, doors, radiators, etc., in
the east wing.
The fire could have been checked at
any time if there had been any water
supply. Several times a bucket brigade
wus started, but was useless. The 294
patients are being cared for on the
grounds. The loss is $250,000.
Manager Smith of the operahouse has
