Additional Locals,
Our band boys held their annual
election of officers last Thursday
evening, selecting .1. I. l>epew for
president. O. E. Adams seeretary
treasurer. \V. C. Dieterichs leader.
Robt. Pritchard instructor. Cash
Pritchard librarian, and J. I. Eepew.
O. E. Adams and Robt. Pritchard as
directors. The band boys made no
mistake along that line this time.
We received a very pleasantcall last
Friday from our good friend. Hans
M. Johnson of Washington township.
wl»o since acquiring the old Holy
cross place has made it one of the
best in the county. Mr. Johnson
makes just complaint of the very las
methods of making and securing good
roads in this county. He likes all
else about Sherman county save this
alone, and if anything causes him to
sell and go elsewhere it will be the
depicable condition of the roads.
Tiiis is a very general complaint over
tiie county and should cause the mer
chants of the various towns, especial
ly. to sit up and take notice and act
also, with a view of making roods on
which such grievous views cannot be
In the matter of the State of Ne
braska vs. John Chipps. which came
on for preliminary hearing before
Judge Smith Tuesday. It appearing
to tiie state that important wit
nesses for the state had left to avoid
service of subpeona's. and that there
was not sufficient evidence to justify j
the tiling of a complaint and that
before the aforesaid witnesses could
be brought into court the alleged act
complained of would be barred by
the Statute of Limitations and the
only way in which this could be
avoided would be the calling of a
special session of the district court.
In view of the lack of evidence, the
uncertainty of the result and expense
of calling an extra session of the
district court, the county .attorney
dismissed the action. This was the
first case coming before County At
torney Starr, after < eing inducted
into office, and will save to the coun
ty quite a goodly amount in costs,
!*--ides settling the case in tiie only
way it could have possibly ended.
At the annual stockholders meet
: ir.g of the Loup City State Bank held
Friday of last week, former Vice
President J. S. Pedler was elected
President. John VY. Long. Vice Presi
dent and C. C. Carlsen Cashier, the
Board of Directors remaining the
omi>. namely. W. R. Mellor. E. G.
Taylor. S. X. Sweetland. Sam'i Dad
idow. J. S. Pedler. John \Y. Long and
, C. C Carlsen. The business of this
batik has grown to such an extent as
iemands tiie entire time of its presi
dent and cashier in managing and
; directing its affairs. Mr. Taylor's
other business interests are so large
as to demand all of his attention, and
j it was thought best to have one
ictively engaged in the bank as its
; president Mr. Taylor still retains
ill of his original holdings of stock
and will continue to act as one of the
tank's directors as he has in the
past. The surplus of the bank was
I increased to il7.o00.00. making this
trank, including capital and surplus,
j the largest and strongest in the
| county, while its officers and directors
*re among our oldest residents and
most influential business men.
Mr. A. B. Outhouse lias purchased
i.rough Mr. Williams a liberal share
•t the stock in the First National
; Hank of this city, and was elected a
j hreotorat their annual meeting the
| l**th instant. Officers elected for the
< tisuing jear are: Ira E. Williams,
| president: A. B. Outliouse, vice presi
I lent: L. Hansen, cashier, and O. E.
Adams, assistant cashier. A. P Cul
ley had a>ked to be relieved as presi
dent. a right which he has well
earned during the past 25 years, and
owing to his absence a large portion
of the year, his demands were res
pected. The addition of Mr. Outhouse
to the lank directorate will add very
materially to the strength of the
institution. Tiie elevation of Mr.
Williams to the head of the First
National is a recognition of the ex
celled manner in which he. who
came here a total stranger to our
people, has built up and help place it
among the leading banking institu
tions of this county. The placing
of Mr. Louie Hansen as cashier lias
been especially pleasing to patrons,
as no man in our community has a
stronger hold on the trust' of tiie
public generally. Mr. Adams, as
assistant cashier, has also made good
with the people and is proving a v ery
efficient strength to the Institution.
