Tom Tibbies, in answering the
question, “What will Bryan do?”
says he will live and die in the dem
cratic party; that if there were only
four left—Cleveland, Hill and Par

fourth, etc., and a lot more ol roast
for the cross of gold man. Tomy
rot! From Biyan,g antics of late,
it may be assured he will be fonnu
where he can gull the unsophistica
ted out of the most money and gain
the most notoriety for himself.
The populist press found a sugar
teat to nurse their disarranged, dis
ordered and distorted visions upon
right after election in the refusal of
the Burlington to pay its assessed
taxation. They must of necessity
have a rag to chew after their in
glorious defeat, and we are glad the
Burlington furnished the consola
tion, as the greater the height the
harder the bump when they reach
terre firrna, as will be their case in
the Burlington's defeat. The popo

has scarely a foothold left or a peg
to hang upon.
County treasurers all over the
state, with very few exceptions, are
refusing the partial tender of taxes
offered by the B. & M in payment
for their taxes. A few, we only
know of one, treasurers have accept
ed the amount offered, and credited
as part payment We understand
the Union Pacific and Northwestern
will pay their taxes without protest,
allov. ing the Burlington to go it
alone in its fight on the assessment.
The Burlington will find it has an
up-hill route to travel and will pay
in the end every dollar of its just
taxes like common mortals.
A pretty wedding occurred Mon
day morning of this week at the
Catholic church, being the marriage
of Miss Sophia Otlewski, second
daughter of Frank Otlewski, one of
our most prominent Polish citizens,
to Mr. Andrew Szydzik. The cere
mony was conducted by Father
Radka, the Polish priest of Ashton.
The bride was gowned in cream
dotted crepe de chien insert, with
lace and carried a bouquet of bride’s
roses. She was attended by the
Misses Katie Dietz and Victoria
Szydzik. The groom was support
ed by Messrs. R. Ivowalewski and
Anton Szydzik. Following the cer
emony an elaborate dinner was
served at the home of the bride’s
parents north of the city, followed
by a dance, to which Rome two hun
dred guests were invited and a royal
time was had. The home of the
happy ;>air will be 3 miles south
east of Loup City.
Bad Fire at Dannebrog—Clerk
Burned to Death.
Last night, Thursday, about
11:30 o’clock, the hardware store
of M. A. Madsen was discovered to
be on fire. The building is situat
ed between Hald <fc Winchester’s
store and the lumber yard. The
firemen w’ere soon on hand and
soon had a stream of water playing
on the building. The tire had gotten
such a start that that they could
not save the building, and they
turned their attention to saving
the adjoining property. Some idea
of the effectiveness of their work
can be drawn from the fact that
the lumber yard building was but
two feet from the burning building
and they saved the lumber yard. This
speaks well for the tire department
of that thriving little city. The
origin of the fire is not known, but
it is supposed the new tinner em
ployed by Madsen, who slept in the
building, went home under the in
fluence of liquor and overturned the
lamp. At least he was burned to
death in the building. Little is
known of him except that his name
is Niels Christensen and that he
came trom Denmark last spring
with Mark Holm. He was about
thirty years of age. The building
was valued at #1,500 and the stock
at $3,000, partly covered by insur
ance.—St. Paul Phonograph and
There will be a social gathering at
the Baptist church on Tuesday evening
Nov. 29th, 04, the object of which will
be ss a welcome to Bro. Wold, the pas
tor of the church, and as a means of
getting better aquainted with Bro.
and his family, and better aquainted
with our selves. Ihe gathering will
also partake of the nature of a donation
party. Those feeling so inclined can
bring any offering they may wish to'
make for the benefit of Bro. Wold.
The entertainment will consist of reci
tations, songs and a general good time,
but the main object will be the social
part, and let all come with that object
in view. All are cordially invited to
come and enjoy themselves.
