FOURTH OF JULY
AT OLD KENOSHA
Residents of that Locality Have Fine
Time in Neighborly Meeting
in the McNatt Grove.
It was in the territorial days of
Nebraska that the town site of Ken
osha was laid out by the hardy pio
neers that came across the Missouri
river to fohnd a home in the new
and unknown lands of the roving
Indian ,and all that marked the
community as a town has long since
past, the last landmark being the
church that was destroyed on March
23, 1913, but despite this disappear
ance of the landmarks of a settle
ment the residents there have main
tained the real community spirit and
this was shown very clearly on Tues
day when the residents of that por
tion of the county gathered for a
real Fourth of July celebration.
The scene of the festival was laid
in the A. J. McNatt grove, a fitting
place for such a delightful gather
ing. There were some forty-five pres

residents of the county who reside
in that locality.
There was a ball game as well as
horse shoe pitching contest among

pleasure to everyone and the young

STATE ENTERS JULY
June Tax Collections are Largest
Ever Known Treasurer Wipes
Out All Overdrafts.'
State Treasurer D. B. Cropsey was
able to look his constituents in the
face Saturday and with patriotic fer
vor assert the coming Fourth of July
will find the state treasury without
an overdraft on its funds, the first
time this situation has happened for
His report for the month of June
shows the largest collections from
taxes of any month in the history of
the state. The tax levy is also the
largest ever known. The treasurer's
report shows the wiping out of over
drafts amounting to more than $1,-
000,000. While Treasurer Cropsey is
now rejoicing over the fact that
there is $400,500 in the general fund
and no overdrafts, he may be in the
dumps a little later on in the year.
Tax collections will be light from now
until December but the state's bills
will continue to pile up, and in ad

A STUDEBAKER YEAR
school funds are now being paid out
for the support of public schools. It
is believed the treasurer can get
along the balance of the year with
out registering state warrants for
lack of funds to cash them.
In June the receipts of the state
treasury were $3,212,923.16 and the
disbursements $1,380,966.90. The
state received $1,832,000 more than
it spent in June. With a balance of
$2,541,365 on hand the first of June
the balance on hand the last of the
month was $4,373,322.13.
There is now $2,100,000 in the

REPORTED AT CAPITAL
Washington, July 2. Two earth
quake shocks were registered on the
siesmograph of Georgetown univers
ity today, one this afternoon appar
ently being "local" and possibly in
the United States at a distance of
700 or 800 miles from Washington.
Lieutenant Governor Pelham A.
Barrows is in the race for the Re
publican nomination for congress in
this district. He is popular with the
people and has always been a vote
getter. He was elected the first time
he ran for lieutenant governor by a
majority over his principal opponent
of 22,864 which was Increased the
last election to 77,400.. In that elec
tion he polled 10,530 more votes In
this district than did his democratic
opponent and 4,206 more votes than
both his opponents combined.
One of the strong arguments In
favor of the nomination and election
of Mr. Barrows is the fact that if
elected he will not go into congress
handicapped by being unknown. Prob
ably no man has ever gone out of Ne
braska for a good many years who has
become bo well known over the entire
country as he. As Commander-in-Chiof
of his national organization, traveling
from one coast to the other, speaking
In most of the important cities of the
United States, he was accorded enthusiastic receptions wherever he
appeared and was greeted by many of the prominent men of the coun
try. Naturally members of congress, and he is personally acquainted
with many of them, will be interested in knowing the type of man
the First Nebraska district is sending to take the place of Congress
man Reavis, one of the very well known members of that body.
Should Lieutenant Governor Barrows be elected, he will go to Wash
ington with the prestige of being known and step into that body
known either personally or by reputation by a large number of it j
members. This will mean a great deal for this district and with
the experience whrich the lieutenant governor has had In public life,
will be a valuable asset to .Nebraska. Nemaha County Republican.
