Last evening the T. J. Sokol hall
was the scene of a very pleasant gath
ering when the active Bohemian mem
bers of this organization gathered to
enjoy a pleasant evening and a most
sumptuous repast that would have
tempted the appetite of an epicurean
was placed on tho banquet board for
the benefit of the large crowd of gen
tlemen attending. The banquet was
served in the lodge room of the hall
and the young ladies of the Sokolky
turning clcass had arranged the room
in a manner which was most pleasing
to the eye, without saying anything of
the loads of good things to cat whk-h
the ladies served, ar.d they saw to it
that there was nothing omitted that
might add to the delight of the fes
tive occasion, and from the soup to
the dessert the feast was most enjoy
able, and there was plenty for the
jolly party of hungry men, who made
the feast mighty scarce in a short
time. A number of informal addresses
in Bohemian were made by some of
the prominent members who have
jc-n so active in tho work of the or
ganization. A musical program was
given during the course of the ban
quet by the orchestra composed of
Roy Holly, Francis Whelan, Stuart
Janda and Anton Bajeck and after the
fea?t had been disposed of everyone
proceeded to have a very jolly time.
The young ladies of the Sokolky gave
a number cf very high class vocal
numbers, while the gentlemen passed
the time in visiting and playing vari
ous games of cards.

A Mammoth Parade of Military and
Civic Organizations, Swelled
By Citizens.
North Platte, Neb., April 4. One
of the banners in the monstrous wel
come to Keith Neville by all North
Platte that caused yells of delight
I- Nebraska born, Nebraska bred,
Keith Neville for Nebraska's
Zuckweiler & Lutz
Neighbors and friends, and friends'
neighbors and neighbors' friends of
Keith Neville united here Monday
night in giving that governorship can
didate a monstrous welcome home.
It was a nonpartisan, nonfactional,
nondivisional welcome by North
Platte people to one of its sons. It
was enthusiastic to the utmost, and
citizens joined in from the oldest to
the youngest, from the largest to the
smallest, men, women, boys and girls
and all.
This was the only night within two
weeks past that Mr. Neville has been
home and he left early this morning
to be gone on a state primary tour
which will last until primary day,
April IS. -It was therefore the one
night upon which North Platte people
could show their affection and respect
for him and although the time for ar
rangements was comparatively short,
most every one of the 6.0OO people of
this city either took a part in the pa
rade or went to the Neville home
where the welcome took place.
The approach of the local settle
ment of the license policy of the city
for the coming year was forgotten in
this warm tribute of a loyal affection
to Mr. Neville.
Those who do not agree with him
on state issues closely related to this
local contest attested his splendid cit
izenship and popularity among them.
Those who agree with him by their
manifest expressions of friendship
emphasized all those equalities which
they deem most important, most nec
essary in the selection of the execu
tive of a great state.
The event proper was held at the
Neville home, seven blocks from the
business section of town.
Mrs. Neville was at her husband's
side throughout and the three little
girls, understanding little about it aM,
but knowing it was some kind of an
honor for their "daddy," were there,
Autos, Marchers, Bands in Parade.
A long parade of automobiles ar.d
marchers and bands covered the
downtown streets before the start was
made for the Neville home.
On the line under the direction of
Marshal of the Day Leonard Robin
son were the local Spanish-American
War Veteran's camp, the North Platte
Military band, the two companies of
high school cadets, the high school
football team, last year the state
champions under Mr. Neville's coach
ing; the national champion Yeoman
drill team of this city, the North
Platte volunteer firemen and then
sixty-two auto loads of democrats, re
publicans, socialists, prohibitionists,
progressives and independents and a
number of veterans of the civil war
were in this part of the crowd, too,
some of whom had pioneered through
this great west with Colonel Keith,
the local man's grandfather, or with
Judge Neville, his father.
Two hundred marchers of the rank
and file of all parties carried torches,
while along the line of march at in
tervals fireworks were set off to add
to the illumination and to impress on
the crowd the spirit of the celebration.
Dozens of banners bearing different
legends were carried in the parade.
Significant Banner.
The one that brought most applause
had upon it, "Nebraska Born, Nebras
ka Bred, Keith Neville for Nebraska's
At Neville's home, where the yard
and porches were covered with Mr.
Neville's neighbors and friends and
where the crowds surged out into the
street in two directions, speeches were
made by leading citizens whose con
tact with Mr. Neville has been inti
mate during most of the years of his
The appearance of the Neville fam
ily on the porch at their home was
greeted with prolonged cheers when
the great parade drew up.
Every reference to Mr. Neville's
predominant characteristics was the
signal for continued cheering, and be
fore anyone in the great crowd left for j
home most of the men and women and
children swept up to the porch to
greet him personally and to pledge
him support and wish him well.
J. G. Beeler, a well known attorney
and an active friend of the prohibition
cause, was the first speaker on the
"welcome" program.
Prohibitionist's Welcome.
He welcomed Keith Neville home on
behalf of Norh Platte. He spoke with
apparent feeling of the connection of
his parent stock with the settlement
of the great west and the shaping of
Nebraska history in th days when
this section of the country was
known for its wilds and its perils. He
praised Mr. Neville as a citizen, as a
business man, as the head of a home,
as an influence among boys and
young men. He expressed the faith
which North Platte and Lincoln coun
ty and western Nebraska people have
in Mr. Neville, and said that the same
abilities he displayed here at home all
his life would be displayed by Mr. Ne
ville if he were elevated to the gover
norship of his state.
County Attorney George Gibbs
pointed out the friendship of Mr.
Neville for the young men cf this city
and country and declared that his can
didacy for the state executiveship
would bring recognition to the west
ern part of the state and would give
a good account of itself if it termi
nated in an election to the place that
is sought.
Principal N. N. Redenbaugh of the
high school, a church worker and stu
dent of boys' work, spoke on Mr. Nev
ille's influence among the North Platte
high school boys.
Clean, honest sportsmanship has
been Keith Neville's motto, said the
schoolman. He has instilled in the
boys here the desire to win, but the
desire to win manfully, so that op
ponents would respect plays and our
Principal Redenbaugh also declared
that the need of an even balance be
tween work and play and study had
been emphasized upon the boys by
Mr. Neville.
Praise From Republican Editor.
I. L. Bare, editor of the Tribune, a
lifelong republican, praised Mr. Nev
ille from the standpoint of his citizen
ship and business ability and desire to
go out of his way to do things for
"For thirty-five years western Ne
braska has contributed to Nebraska
history, to Nebraska wealth and pros
perity and to Nebraska upbuilding
and now we have a representative o
the west as a candidate for governor,
said Mr. Bare.
"Let us elect him to the place; here
i? the opportunity we long have
sought. We have in Mr. Neville a
clean man, a frank, courageous, busi
nesslike man, the type of the sturdy
splendid pioneer. We know if he is
chosen by Nebraska people as thei
governor he will give to them the
same service his father and he, him
self, have given us in the upbuilding
of the west."
Democrats and republicans were
here from other towns of Lincoln
county, too, and all of them for the
purpose of attesting their friendship
for a man of such worth as Mr
Keith Neville was the last speaker.
and it was many minutes before he
could respond to the welcome given
him. Hats were thrown into the air
torches were dashed to the ground
children sang, parents applauded wild
ly. All North Platte, in short, cheered
the favorite son whom they are back
ing for the governorship.
Mr. Neville's speech was in a meas
ure his compaign speech and it was
more than that, and his neighbors and
friends here accepted it in full meas
ure. They accept everything Keith
Neville says and does.
From Tuesday? Dally.
Judge John S. McCarty of Lincoln,
who is a candidate for the democratic
nomination for congress in the First
district, was in the city today looking
after his interests and seeing that his
candidacy was placed before the
voters for their judgment. Mr. Mc
Carthy was one of the speakers here
at the Cass county democratic ban
quet in February and made a most
favorable impression with the voters
at the time. He is contesting for the
nomination with ex-Congressman John
A. Maguire and D. W. Livingston of
Nebraska City. While in the city Mr.
McCarthy visited for a few minutes

is strong in every red blooded American. We are
the beet cJrcstcd nation in the world. The refining
influence of superior raiment is one of the great
factors in improving our standards of living. If we
existed on some lonely island it wouldn't matter
much what clothes we wore, but here in the midst
of civilization it makes a deal of difference. Lots
of men in this town are acting on this new "Dress

Yesterday in Omaha occurred the
wedding of Mr. George Privett and
Miss Martha McCrary of this city, and
the event came as quite a surprise to
the many friends of the contracting
parties as they had kept the date of
the happy event a secret and stole a
march on their friends by having the
nuptial knot tied in the metropolis.
Both of the young people are well
known to a large circle of friends here
where the bride has been reared to
womanhood and where her friends are
legion. The bride is a daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Alex McCrary and a young
lady who will be greatly missed from
her home and friends here, but in her
new home" she will ' take the -best
wishes of all those who have the pleas
ure of knowing her. The groom is a
very industrious young man and is
located on a fine farm near Blue Hill,
Nebraska, wher3 the young people ex
pect to make their future home, go
ing direct from Omaha to Blue Hill to
commence life in their own home
which the groom has prepared for the
coming of his bride.
