The Presbyterian conceit last night
in Rockwood hall was a success in every
way, and the program was carried out as
published hut night; the zyther and vio

forth I-ud applause. Miss Coble who is
only twelve or thirteen years old showed
a great deal of skill and musical talent
in playing the violin. All of the per
formers did exceedingly well but there
"are too many to speak of the merrits of
each one. The following are those who
received encores: Mrs. Clark and Miss
Ceble, W. A. Derrick, Master Hilt Wes

The city is being adorned with a
shooting gallery on Main street. It
would seem to us that there has been
about enough shooting going on on the
streets of our city lately, and such places
for gathering crowds should be entirely
prohibited iu the city.
The action of Mayer Richey in pro
hibiting the street concerts after lamp
light is to be contended by all.
Everything which tends to draw mixed
crowds of people together should be pro
hibited after night. All such tilings on

are having enough of them at piesent.
The Lincoln Democrat says that no
matter what the people say Attorney
General Lecse will be renominated by
the republican convention if he wants the
nomination and there is no use to Lick.
This may by true bat we have failed to
hear any one kicking about the Atty.
General's renominution except by a few
domociats who are anxious for the office
themselves. Mr. Leese has made a good
record and if he desires the office and can
get the nomination, let him have it for a
third terra or even a fourth for that mat
ter. It is reported that 6ome third party
ministers attended the district convention
at Ashland last week, to ascertain how
many republicans went iato saloons.
Lest it might transpire that not enough
would enter them, to make a harrowing
and blood-curdling tale, they took a
position in front of one and expressly
called th s attention of all who passed to
the fact that h;re was the place to get a
drink. Verily the ministers are learning
the way of politics. Sown they will be
as skillful as any in laying traps and pit
falls for their enemies. Valparaiso Trib

Freeman Knowles formerly editor ef the
Ceresco Neb. Times, but now of the Til
ford Dakota Times has come out a
straight democrat, Two years ago Mr.
Knowles was nominated by the republicans
of S Hinders county for couuty attorney
but was defeated by the democratic nom
inee for th.it position whereupon he went
into the prohibition camp and last year
was run by that party for county judge
of Saunders county and again defeated,
this time by a republican. While at
Ceresco Mr. Knowles advocated the tem
perance cause very strongly through his
paper aud also was a strong labor advo
cate aud was classed as the only anarch
ist in Saunders county. It will no doubt
be a great source of consolation to his
prohibition friends to know that lie has
takeu a wise course and goia into the
democratic party, the friends of the pro
hibition cause, (1) instead of returning
to the republican party. It is a singular
thing that almost every "sore head" of
fice seeker will usually go the round
about road through another party to get
into their once enemy's camp. We have
long predicted that the majority of the
prohibition party would land into the
democratic camp before many years roll;
