The Chief fits for criticising the hotels
in Lincoln. If the AVrj is a specimen
of modern journalistic ability, God
help the balance of tho papers 'jn the
state. Fresh plates by fricght adorn
its every page, and the balance is a
rehash of tho Jotnidi's local items of
the day before. In all probability the
editor of the" Ncir spends too much
time around tlie free lunch counter.,
to know how or what the hotels of
Lincoln arc doing.
Last Saturday niglitwas Halloween,
and wasjduly observed by the juvenile
citizens of Red Cloud, who carried out
the usual program of tick-tacking the
quiet, peaceable citizens of our city,
and all movable articles to be found
were promiscuously scattered over the
streets. Webster street was pretty
well strown with dry goods boxes,
grindstones, washing machines, etc.
A goodly number of our citizens were
surprised on arising next morning to
find they, duiiHg the night, had be
come possessed of someone else's gate,
or perhaps had no gate at all. How
ever, contrary to the results of all
previous observations of that night,
no serious damago was found to havo
been done by tho mischief-making
TiiEGeorgie Hamlin dromatic com
pany which opened tho opera house
last week with a season of theatrical
entertainments is simply one of the
best companies on the ro.id and
desires success where ever they show .
Miss Georgie Hamlin is certainly one
of the best actresses ever on a Red
Cloud stage, and in fact her ability in
that direction does not come far bv
himl some of the more noted members
of her profession, she has that case of
action on the stage that sho.vs her to
be an adept in the art. and if she
should eyer return to Red Cloud she
may feel assured of receiving a hearty
welcome, as will the whole company.
They left this city for Cameron,
Missouri, whore they show thi- week,
and will return to Rod Cloud in
Red Cloud, though not as large as
Hastings, is becoming somewhat more
popular. Men of means are now
looking upon our enterprising city as
a "future great' and are preparing to
locate here. Railroads are keeping an
eye on us, and it now seems that Red
Cloud is soon destined to have from
three to four new roads. We see by
oisr exchanges that the greit Rock
Island route is talking of Red Cloud as
aterminus, as is also the Missouri
Pacific and the Chicago, Nebraska,
Kansas & Southwestern, besides we
have a Union Pacific survey into our
dty. It simply shows that people seel
the superior advantages that Red
Cloud has for a city, and consequently
are heading this way. Very few towns
in the west can come up to Red Cloud
in point of enterprise and natural ad
vantages which go a great ways to
vards making a city.
