A Groat Throngs Fay Tribute to
tho Memory of Wra. A.
All that was mortal of William
A. McKetghan was laid to rest in
the cemetery at Red Cloud Thurs
day. 1'ublic buildings, private
dwellings and business houses were
drapcd'in his honor. Flags were
draped and at half mast and all
business houses closed. The
Christian church, the most
spacious n the city would not ac
commodate one-third the people
in attendance, many going long
distances by private conveyances to
pay their last respects to the dead
ex-congrcsfman. The procession
was Jed by the Sons of Ve terans
band, followed by a hrirg squad
detailed by the Grand Army of the
Republic, next a large number of
veteran comrades and members of
the Modern Woodmen. In car
riages were, besides the family, his
brother, Alexander McKcighan
and wife of Yates City, 111., Isaac
Urown and wife of Springvillc,
Kas., Mrs. Klizabcth Urown of
I'ontiac, II!., brother and sister-in-law
of the departed, and Mrs.
McKeighan's mother of l'airbury,
Neb. There were also Mrs. W. V,
Allen, W. J. Uryan and Adj-Gen.
Harry. Gov. llolcomb was un
able to be present but vas repre
sented by Stenographe r Nelson of
his office. The church was taste
fully and elaborately draped, and
the floral decorations were in pro
fusion and were the offerings of
many personal friends.
The services were conducted by
Kev. Mr. Maxfield of th Metho
dist church and Rev. Mr. Yciscr
of the Uaptist church of lied
Cloud. The principal address was
delivered by Hon. V. J. Uryan.
In subdued tones he bespoke his
personal emotion as in beautiful
sentences lie portrayed the kindly
, nature of his departed friend, nnd
touched the well of sympathy in
the hearts of his hearers. At the
grvc with the simple ritual of tl:e
soldiers' society the body was laid
in its last long resting place.
We hope to receive 10,000
Christmas gifts this year, mainly
from delinquent subscribers.

A Shady Affair.
i .1 ii i? v:efi..t. x- i
Monday turns out to be a shady
Tafiair. The two partners, Nissley
!& Wells have been arrested for dis
posing of mortgagtd property. It
appears that they gave a mortgage
on their stock to the American
Exchange bank some time ago and
then persuaded the bank officers
not to put it on record, so astO;
keep their credit good with other
parties, promising to make me
bank good at all hazards. Then
they gave other mortgages and had
them filed before the bank knev
anything about it. Then the bank
officers got hot under the collar
and had them arrested.
The question is, are not the
bank's officers also culpable? Tne
keeping of that mortgage from the
public records enabled the firm,
with the bank's knowledge and
consent, to deceive other creditors.
Honesty is the best policy, even
under the gold standard.

Some republican idiots in Lincoln
would shut up a poor littb school
and turn the pupils out on the street
that they might buy flag poles and
flags to float over the others. They
call that patriotism! They are
canting hypocrites. The men who
act that way never rallied 'round
the Hag when shot and shell were
screaming the air.
