Fight for Cheaper Fuel.
While tbe people are demanding
the enactment of laws and laws,
t!ie law that would be of the great
est benefit to every resident of the
state, has been entirely overlooked,
says the Kearney Democrat. That
is a sound constitutional law regu
lating the price of coal. All coal
sold along the lines of the Union
Pacific and Burlington in Nebraska
is owned by those companies. Rock
Springs coal sells for $8,50 a ton in
Kearney, while 200 miles east, at
Omaha, is sold for $0. A law
should be enacted fixing the price
of coal at all points between the
western state line and Omaha, such
graduated scale of prices to be fixed
upon the price charged for the same
quality of coal in Omaha, the or
ganized competitive point in Ne
braska. If Rock Springs sells for
$0 in Omaha, it should be made by
law to sell in Kearney at as much
less than $6 as it costs to hall it
the distsnce of 200 miles. A law
of this character would be of greater
benefit to the peop'e of Nebraska
than anti-pass and anti-tax laws.—

R. D. Hendrickson,
A cattle rustling story bas enact
ed itself in this part of the state
during the past week, that for cool
ness and boldness is not excelled by
the wildest days of the frontier.
Last Tuesday, a man came to the
depot ia this city, and ordered a car
to be in readiness on the Thursday
following, saying that he was going
to ship cattle. The agent described
him as a man of average height,
poorly dressed, and unshaven face,
and a stubby beard covering his
face so that he could not tell what
he looked like.
The car duly arrived, and was set
aside for Mr. J. W. Brown, w'hich
is the name the man gave. Thurs
day morning before daylight some
thirty-four head of cattle were load
ed into the car, but no one saw
them loaded. When day broke
some of our citizens saw them and
made inquiries concerning them,
but no one new anything about :
them. No one seemed to take care j
of them and the freight soon came
and the car started ou its trip
to Omaha. Mr Brown signed his
contract at the depot, and secured
his transportation, but no one saw
him get on the train. It afterward
developed that he boarded the
train at the water tank. J. B.
Stone was going to Omaha that day
and reports having ridden down
with this man Brown, and talking
to him for some time.
The event was thought no more
of till Friday afternoon, when
Messrs. Jensen and Crowford came
over lrom Clear Creek, and each re
ported losing some cattle, out
ot their pasture From the de
scription given of the cattle lost,
and the cattle shipped, it began to
dawn apon the minds of our people
that these cattle had been stolen
and shipped. They could however
do nothing as this was Friday, the
cattle having been in Omaha, nearly
a day. A v. ire wras however sent
Cox, Jones & Co., the commission
house to which they weie consigned.
In the meantime the cattle had
reached Omaha and had been sold |
by Cox, Jones & Co. Chase Van
Als'ine, a member of this firm, who
used to live here, and is acquainted
here, went to conversing with
Brown about the people here and
the replies the man gave were very
unsatisfactory, and raised the sus
picion in Mr. Van Alstine’s mir,d
that all might not be right. He
therefor refused to pay Brown but
150 of the money, placing the rest
of the money in the bank there to
the credit of the Arcadia bank, soon
afterwards he received the wire
Officers in Custer county at once
went to work on the case, and by
going to the place of the stealing
found some men by the name of
Fox and Huffman, living in Ansley,
had been in the vicinity riding
around in the pastures. They set
watch over their houses and found
that preparations were being made
at Chandler’s barn, to drive to
Broken Bow. They kept watch
and w'hen the train came through,
west bound, Huffman got off, al
though the train did not stop. He
at once went to his home, and Fox,
Chandler and he began to make
preparations to leave. Before they
could do so, Huffman and Fox
were arrested. They w’ere taken to
BrokenBow where they M ill be tried
for cattle stealing. We understand
that they had already ordered
another car at this place, and an
other at Ansley, to be in readiness
this week. Arcadians will watch
the ievelopements in the cast with
a great deal of interest.—Arcadia
Will our correspondents remember « e
have bad our office all torn up and our
work so disarranged the past weeks
t^at their letters have been more or less
neglected, as well as other news mat
ters. Hereafter we will try to better
matters. With this apology, we ask
you to send in the news as before and
they will receive better attention. In
this connection, we would ask our Ash
ton correspondent why he has uever,
save once or twice, sent in his promised
letters, though six or seven months
have passed and we have lived up to
our part of the agreement. Is it fair?
