The railroad bonds in Kearney
county were carried by XU votes over
an I above the required two-thirds
necessary to make legil. Hastings
on the east and Iloldregc on the west
did their best to defeat the bonus,
coming over into Keatncy county and
poisoning the minds of the foreign
element especially against them.
Such comsummate cheek we never
befoie heard of one county manifest
ing toward another. On Thursday
this city will carry bonds to the
amount of 55,000, after which it
will be understood that work will im
mediately begin upon the road, and
thus Kearney will have a southern
outlet. Kearney Journal.
The dedication of Asbury Chapel
took place Sunday. The usual cere
monies were gone through with. This
Chapel was planned, erected and paid
for through the efforts of Rev. G. S.
Davis, pastor of the M. E church of
this city. It is a beautiful piece of
architecture and the south end of our
prosperous city should place the
honor of its erection where it belongs.
If the M. E. church had a few more
such workers as Rev. Davis we would
look forward to the erection of a fine
brick edifice up town.

concerned, all persons, whether natur
al or artificial, will be protected in
the full enjoyment of all their rights
under the law. Orleans Press.

There is considerable speculation
