Injured From Full of Tree.
From Saturday's Daily.
Last Thursday a young son of
Charles Alcllrldo living in the south
part of the city suffered severe In
Jury by a fall from a tree. The lit
tle fellow who Is about eight years
of age was climbing a large tree In
the yard and had reached a height
of fully twenty feet from the ground
when he Bllpped and fell. He lighted
upon his left arm which was broken,
the fracture being of two bones in
the upper arm. It was a bad break,
the bones being broken squarely off.
A surgeon was hastily summoned by
his mother who heard the little fel
low's cries and who hurried to carry
him Into the house. She discovered
the broken member hanging limp
and useless at his side and took Im
mediate action to havo It looked
after. The arm was set and the lit
tle one mado as easy as possible. It
Is believed he will recover without
any further trouble and that the arm
will knit as It should.
A suit upon a promissory note has
been filed In district court by NcnJ.
P, Davis as administrator of the es
tate of Robert C. Kendall, deceased,
aralnst W. C. Carraher. The amount
claimed Is $500 with Interest at 6

General Hartigan Says Militia
Company Must Have Backing
The movement to organize a com
pany of the state guard which has
been under way for some days In this
city Is at present In abeyance. Ad
jutant General Hartigan who was in
the city last evening met with a num
ber of the members of the proposed
company at the commercial club
rooms, In the Coates' block and ex
plained to them at some length the
nature of the work which the boys
proposed to embark In. There were
some thirty members of the proposed
company In attendance and General
Hartigan spoke of them at some
length. He advised the members
that they could not enter the guard
with the Idea that they were going
to join a social organization and that
the work which the guard had In
view was of a man'B nature and not
boy's play, lie pointed out the va
rious duties which, the guard had to
perform under the law and the dig
nity which attached to the soldier
as the guardian of the public peace
and tho protector of property. He
dwelt upon tno hardships Incident to
the service and tho work which was
required to make the "rookies" good
soldiers. The necessity for strict dis
cipline In the guard was also dwelt
upon and tho boys given to under
stand that work along these lines
was absolutely necessary and that
the officers who were in command
were absolute and the men under
them had to obey. Ho also spoke of
the things incident to the formation
of a company which were essential
to Its success. The co-operation of
the business men of the community
with the guard was one of the most
vital points about It and he regretted
that at this meeting there seemed
to be no members of the commercial
club or leading business men pres
ent and taking an active part In the
organization. General Hartlgnn's ad
dress was a timely one and he gave
tho boys to understand that he would
not organize a company unless It
came up to the standard he had set
and was supported by the sound In
terests of the community.
General Hartigan looked over
those of the members of the proposed
company present and found that
about twenty-five pre cent of them
came under the age limit and,, of
course, would have to be rejected.
He was of the opinion on the whole
that the company was a fine looking
body of young men and with tho ad
dition of others to take the place of
thoso rejected on account of age lim
it, It would be one of the finest bod
ies In the state. In conclusion Gen
eral Hartigan left It to those inter
ested In the company to obtain the
active Interest of the business men
of the community In the proposed
company and left with them the ne

cessary blanks for taking the applica
tions of the men. From these appli
cations General Hartigan could de
termine the fitness of the applicants
for places In the ranks.
In a conversation with the Journal
man, General Hartigan stated that
he wanted It firmly Impressed upon
the community that 'no company
would be organized unless the solid,
substantial business Interests of the
city took an active part and backed
up the company with substantial aid.
General Hartigan wanted the busi
ness Interests to understand that the
state paid out considerable money
every year to maintain these com
panies, this being expended for rent
which would amount to several hun
dred dollars a year. In addition to
the members of the company receiv
ing In pay from the state from $1,200
to $1,500 per year, all of which comes
here as It is paid on the last day of
the state encampment. This Is the
solid substantial business end of the
state guard and General Hartigan
thlnkB is worthy of consideration. He
states that whatever companies have
been In existence and for some rea
son the company had to be disband
ed, the business men have Invariably
made a great kick as they have come
to appreciate Its benefits.
General Hartigan while here talk
ed with many old friends whom be
had known in early days In this city
and had several very pleasant visits.
Ho spoke with a good many on the
political situation and expressed the
belief that the Democratic state con
vention would turn down the county
option proposition which he was op
posed to very much. He spoke of
the Lancaster county Democratic con
vention which he witnessed and
states that many of the delegates to
that convention were opposed to th
county option question but that Air.
Bryan compelled them to fall into
line and support his plan. He told
a number of good stories apropos of
the situation and wound up by stat
ing that he did not believe anyone
could tell anything about the out
come this fall as tho parties were
split from one end to the other. He
departed this morning vfor Lincoln
and expects to return later when the
business men have taken up the state
guard question in earnest.
