Immense Barg&tai la Jewelry.
G. S. Albright, our enterprising and
go-ahead jeweler, is again on deck

jewelry ever produced in the Repub

the lest goods in the market, Mr. Al

imputation for honesty and square
dealing. If you want any goods in his
line it will pay you to call on him at
once, as he is offering tremendous bar

What a farmer says about Nebraska:
The soil is a rich dark loam, with a
subsoil of clay, very porous, and seems
to absorb water readily, retaining the
same and rendering it up as the plant
rootsjmay require. It is a fact that
Nebraska can stand drought longer
than most any other suite in the Union.

At the railroad meeting at Smith
Centre hist Monday night the various
delegates organized a railroad com
pany, and adopted "Red Cloud and
Kansas South-western" as the name
for the .proposed railway. A deter
mined effort will be made to get the B.
& M. to put the road in running oper
ation as soon as possible.
The Chief wishes to inform its
friends that it will take county war
rants or certificates at par in pay
ment of subscriptions, We hope all
that can, and nearly all of our sub
scribers are able, will call and give us

run a paper, and $1.50 is a small
amount to you but means a great deal
to us. Let every body come.

A five foot vein of coal has been dis
covered in Kansas, about sixteen miles
south of Red Cloud, at an average
depth of fifty feet. There is no doubt
but what there is plenty of coal to be
had in Webster county by simply
mining for it, evidence of which has
already been proven by parties who
have been prospecting. Let Red
Cloud make an effort ta put down a
shaft. A coal mine would be a big
bonanza for us, and furnish plenty of
There is some agitation in this
place in reference to starting a build
ing association. A scheme of this
kind would be a great benefit to Red
Cloud if properly carried on, and we
therefore hope it will be a success.
Great benefit can be derived from a
building association, and many a poor
man could build a house and pay for
it in monthly installments. It would
provide honles for many who .have to
rent and arc not otherwise prepared
to build for themselves.
As the state press association is a
"dead" affair, being rather to large a
body to ensure any "fat" success, why
cannot the newspaper publishers of
the Valley (some 20 of them,) form an
association and meet at some regular
place and time for the discussion of
vital interests to the publisher. We
would be one of the twenty that would
pledge ourselves to join aud regularly
attend an association of this nature.
There are some clauses in the statutes
of the great commonwealth of Nebras
ka that are very imperfect in regard to
the printers' fees, such as the delin
quent tax list, etc., and something
should be done to bring the matter be
fore the next legislature. We should
be glad to hear from all oar. brethren
on the sudject Rep. VaL Echo'.
The Chief will be another one and
hopes that such on organization can
be formed. It would certainly result
.in much good to the newspaper fra
i tcr.oify of 4he Republican Valley.
On last Thusday evening the "chiv
alry and beauty" of Red Cloud gather
ed together at the court-house hall to
do honor to the first masquerade ball
given by the Red Cloud cornet band.
Early in the evening the guests, ar
rayed in all the imaginable costumes
of modern and ancient times, embrac
ing as they did both the ridiculous and
the sublime, began to appear, and a
few minutes later fully eventy-five in
dividual maskers hod arrived. About
eight o'clock the ''mazy dance" began
with the grand march, and from that
time until the early dawh did the mer
ry makers continue to revel in the
"light fantastic" Joy was unconfined,
and every one present seemed to be
making an effort to secure his or her
share of the evening's enjoyment. It
was most certainly an enjoyable affair,
and waSiOne of the most successful en
tertainments of the kind ever produced
in Red Cloud, and in fact was a sur

anticipate such an extended patronage
on the occasion, and, were therefore

On last Saturday evening at the
railroad meeting in Judge Yeiser's of
fice the subjeet of building an iron
bridge across the Republican river was
sprung, and thereupon a general dis
cussion ensued, which resulted in ap
pointing a committee of twenty-one
to devise plans for erecting same. The
names of the committee appointed are:
R. D.Jones; chairman; D. B. Span
ogle, J. L. Miller, M. B. McNitt, A. N.
Patmor, A. H. Kaley, J. X; Miner,

ardson, Uncle Peter Marsden, O. Mc
Call, C. W. Ka!ey, Ed. B. Smith. Treas
urer Buschow, Mr. Ormsby, Sheriff
Warren, D. M. Piatt. It was decided
that the committee should first meet
on Saturday, March 15, at Judge Yeis
er's office at 3 p. m- sharp. It is fully
urged that all be present as this is a
matter of no little importance to the
people. A safe and substantial bridge
is what the people of this vicinity "want
across the river; one that will not go
down every spring with an ice gorge.
A good reliable bridge should be built
so that the people can rely upon its
being there when they desire to cross
the river. This matter is" of vital in
terest to every person in the southern
portion of Webster county, and we
hope the matter will be thoroughly
brought before the people.
The meeting called to discuss the B.
& M. railway scheme from this city
via Smith Centre to Rooks county,
Kansas, was attended by about fifty
people. On motion, A. J. Kenney
was called to the chair, and Mr- Ed.
Perkins was elected secretary. The
object of the meeting was stated by D.
B. Spanogle, and a spirited discussion
followed pro and con, some favoring
and others not quite satisfied with the
scheme as they understood it, but fin
ally, on motion, a delegation of six,
gentlemen, viz: A. J. Kenuey, M, R.
Beutly, W. B. Roby. J. L. Miner, J. L.
Miller and J. A. Tulleys were appoint
ed to confer with delegations from var
ious points along the proposed route,
which inet last Monday night at Smitli
Centre, to see what could be done and
what was wanted. There seems to be
a difference of opinion as, to the bene
fits to be derived from the road by
some of our citizens, but all feel wiH
ing to co-operate in the matter if it
will benefit our city. The Kansas peo
ple are bound to have the road, let it
cost what it may, and we may, there
fore, expect to see the B. &M. running
in the direction of Rooks county be
fore long. Red Cloud will soon loom
up at no late day as a railroad center,

A few days since Constable Kincher,
while attempting to serve papers upon
Enos and Albert Wilson, living near
Guide Rock, he was fired upon, by one
or the other of the two men and run oft
of the premises. On Saturday, Sheriff
Warren, sent Deputy Chambers down
to arrest the parties for offense, which
he did, and before a justice, E nos was
bound over to the District court in the
sum of $500 each. During the shooting
Kincher received a charge of quail shot
in one of his legs. Albert Wilson, one
of the assailants, while in custody
made his escape and sailed out for a
more congenial clime. Our Guide
