J udge Crites.
A. W. Crites of Chadron was sent
down to the capital to look after
their normal school bill. The bill
was defeated yesterday but Mr.
Crites received the Jippointmcnt of

The Waier Quf n
Kiralf- Bros' "Water Oueen" was

The play as a whole wa.s a brilliant
success and we believe no one re
gretted their attendance.
The encouragement given the
opera house people by .so liberal an
attendance will doubtless brace up
Mr. Young to continue in giving us
nothing but first class attractions.

An Amputation.
E. A. Kirkpatrick, of Avoca, the
victim ot tne accidental uiscnarge
of a shot gun, mention of which
was made in yesterday's IIekald,
was compelled to submit to the
surgeon's knife yesterday. Dr. Wal
lace of Union was called and in or
der to save a part of the arm, the
forearm was amputated about mid
way between the wrist and elbow.
Mr. Kirkpatrick is a brother-in-law
of Wiley Blacii and from him we
learn that Mr. K. suffered terrible
pain from the effect of the gun-shot
wound, and the doctor said the
hand had to be amputated or he
could not recover. At last accounts
he was getting along as well as
could be expected.
A. Barrel of Money.
Speaking of the characters in "A
Barrel of Money" a theatre-goer re
marked: "They are so admirably
drawn, eo real, eo entertaining that
you love them, you hate them, you
sympathize with them, you laugh
at them and applaud them. "Briefly
that tells the wide scope covered by
the comedy, except that the musical
features are up to the highest stand
ard of the best farce companies.
The cast is an excellent one. A
company containing such perfor
mers as Gracie Einmett, Grace Can-
ington, Belle Byxne, Will II. Kohnle,
Danny Maun, Lloyd Neal, Will
Spalding and Ralph Dannan. A
great hit is the Salvation Army

FJngine 243 was brought in from

looked as though it had seen rough
usage. The smoke stack made of
inch boiler iron was broken square

cab was crushed and splintered and
the pilot was carried entirely away
From the appearance of the engine
one would have thought the engi
neer and fireman had a poor chance
for life even if the engine had not
turned over.
An Unexpected Return.
During the last term of the dis
trict court County Attorney Travis
lost his leather hand satchel con
taining some valuable legal papers.
He was very much worried over the
loss of the papers, some of them be
ing difficult to replace. A few days
ago, however, he received a neat
package through the mails, and on
opening it he found his lost papers,
without any word of explanation,
The post mark was so dim it could
not be made out. Mr. Travis says
he would like to thank the thought
ful thief in person for his kindness
in returning the papers.

The legislative apportionment
bill before the house makes the
Sixth senatorial district consist of
the counties of Cass and Sarpy, thus
insuring the election of a democrat
ic senator from this republican
county. The independents opposed
the measure and succeeded in
having it indefinitely postponed by
a vote ol M to 40. It will, however,
be brought up again as the demo
crats say they will have an extra
session if an apportionment bill is
not passed.
A farmer coming into town yes
terday with an empty wagon to
which was attached a team that
would weigh 2,800 pounds had to
get out and walk as he drove into
town on the avenue. Some paving
must be done this spring; the de
mand is imperative.

Legislative Noies.
The following is a list of the new
laws that were ground out at the
capitol yesterday.
II. K. No. 134, a bill to prohibit the
keeping, maintaining or harboring
of girls under the age of eighteen
years and hoy under the age of
twenty-one years in houses of ill
fame and to authorize the officers
or agents of the Nebraska humane
society and all other humane or

School failed to pass, there being '2.1
yeas and 4'J na3's recorded.
S. F. No. 23, the Chadron school
bill also failed to pass, 40votiugyea
and 42 voting nay.
S. F. No. 180 was passed without
the emergency clause. This bill
was introduced by Senator Collins
and its provisions apply to cities of
the second class having a popula
tion of over $5,000 inhabitants. It is
intended to allow the city of Beat
trice to vote bonds in excess of the
amount now allowed by law, in the
amount of $25,000, for the purpose
of making improvements in the
water works system.
II. R. No. 318, by Cornish, was
passed by a vote of 75 yeas to 3 nays.
This bill compels school district
treasurers to keep a register in
which all school district orders
shall be registered in the order pre
sented. It is made his duty to noti
fy holders of warrants whenever
there is sufficient money in the
treasury to cash the same. The ob-
ject of this bill is to prevent holder
of orders from drawinir interest
thereon indefinitely.
II. R. No. 190. a bill for an act re
lative to public schools in metro
politan cities, and to repeal an act
approved March 31, 1887, entitled an

King Humbert has without a word

any serious significance to the fact.
