The grand army of the republic of
this city are making extensiue prepar
atiaaa for the due observance of
Manorial day. This is right and
vary citizen of Webster county who
kaa a farthing of patriotism should
make arrangements to come to Red
Claad and observe the day. It is
positively a moral and patriotic duty
for every citizen to observe this day
aad thereby keep the memories of
Br dead heroes fresh in the minds of
the growing generations as well as
those who lived in those trying times.
We arc not one of those who believe
tut the "dead past should bury the
dead," but on the other hand believe
that all true Americans should with
that pride -born of true and unflinch
ing love of country revere the mem
ory of those noble and self sacrificing
who went forth to battle and
death to serve onr country. It is
then, a duty we owe them, to lay
asde oar work and do honor to their
nenle desds of heroism,

Our Canadian neighbors who pro
fess to be so greatly exasperated over
the action of this government in clos
ing the Behring sea against their
prowling seal fishermen will gain
nothing by indulging in threats. Tbe

proper in the circumstances by Cana

exclusive jurisdiction of this country

purchased, will doubtless in due time
he determined by an international
convention, but meanwhile this gov
ernment will insist upon its claim to
tnsh jurisdiction, and will maintain
it, regardless of Can.id:an opinion or
menace. It could not open this sea
te Canadian fishermen without per
mitting those of other countries to
enter it. and this would mean ttie
tpeedy distraction of the seal fisher
ies, no such lolly is likely to occur
mnder the present administration.

Mr Simons, the venerable street
commissioner, objects to our remarks
in last week's Chief in regard to the
favoritism shown in grading streets.
We have no hesitancy in saying or
in fact reiterating our former state
ment. Webster street has been gra
ded evcty year since the editor of
this raper has been in Red Cloud, al
most to the exclusion of every other
street except Seward. Perhaps if
Mr. Simons had not lived on that
street it would have escaped this
year, but somehow or other city offi
cials in the aggregate see to it, if
there are to be any improvements,
that they arc made in their vicinity,
or as near as possible. There are
however, a few exceptions in Ked
Cloud, and we have secured our city
artists to photograph them aa living
curiosities, but Mr. Simons' pioture
will not appear in this group. The
Chief has no axes to grind, but likes
to sec justice done the people, no one
man or set of men, should be favored
to the exclusion of others, in this
land of the free. During the McKee
by regime the city waterworks were
put iu, and were so arranged that the
mains passed the residences or prop
erty of every eity official, without ex
ception, and in one instance they
were put on a back street to accomo
date the mayor to the almost exclu
sion of that portion of the city where
the service would be ef necessity to
the people for actaal service where
wells could not be obtained It any-
one can gainsay this statement let
him stand up and be counted. Jus-1
tico is justice, every day in the week
Of course it is too late to kick now
about the water works, but in tho fu
ture it may be beneficial to office hol
ders. The oity council should take warn
ing and be very careful in the man
ner thoy spend the eity money in the
future as our people are certainly
waking up to the reckless extrava
gance of the past few months. The
city should not have an officer that is
aot absolutely necessary. It should
not remit licenses, if people want to
indulge in business that reqmires li
cense let them pay it or go into some
other line of business. The city
marshal could be street commissioner
at the same salary ne aow gets, and
there arc other such cases that could
be lopped off. People who have to pay
over a $1000. taxes kick, those who pay
$500, kiek, and those of ns wbe pay
smaller amounts, kid, and right they
should. Of course the city business
has to be attended to, and saoney
must be raised, for that purpose, yet
it does not follow that we aaay need
lessly pay out money just for the fun
of the thing, as it hurts bad enoagh
to pay what one actually has to.
Will the council do the right thing
and rccind their former actios in re
gard to city officials ?

he was arrested for drawing a check
on a bank in which he had no funds
and getting it cashed at the Burling

that he needed money and intended
depositing the casL before the check
was presented for redemption. His
friends interposed in his behalf and
he was released. He then drifted
But a short time elapsed ere the
news came that King was in jail at

This time it was a csbc of mistaken
identity, aud after being held for a

to Omaha, and has lived rather quiet
until a few days ago. He has had
more trouble with checks than any
man living, and has bad difficulty in

Mr. Editor Whose business is it
to look after tho sanitary condition of
Crooked creek, the source of the city
water supply. We understand that
there are several cattle yards along
its banks that pollute the water?
It should be the business ef the
city council. We understand that
the state law gives them control of
the stream for several miles, It
should be looked after.

that subscription will ever be raised
by Jeff Ward to prospect for coal or

possibly a show for it one of these

man, the Magician and his company received an
imitation to appear before the king of Mandala,
to reach their destination It was necessary to
take a voyage up tbe Irawaddy a distance of
seven hundred miles, which was done on a
small steamer. Tbe voyage was charmingly
picturesque leading as It did by scores of villages
with golden spires of pagodas rising up and
Slisieniiis in the dazxellng sunlight. At Man
dala the company was met by a royal escort at
the steamer's Und'ng. the baggage Backed on

In tue outer chamber of the palace they were
ordered lo emote their shoes, which was done.
After two hours detention they were escorted
through court yard and magincent apartments
luto a large audience chamber where a tempora
ly staee bad been fitted up. After fitting up their
properties for a performance, screens were set
up at lie farther end of the room from the
stage, and beyond this the king and queen were
seated whore they could see aud not be seen,

ofllclils knelt upon the floor with noses fairly

terjwrter, and marveled at the eshlbltlon iriven
by the magician, his majeity expressed a desl.c
that Zunzic should remain as court conjuror,
and he would give him and his assistants a
palace for their social entertainment. Zanzlc
Informed the king that he could not remain
with him, he then Insisted that some of his
people be taught the art of magic and become
magicians, he was lufoimed that also would be
iuiiflssible. Hit royal highness then insisted
that the magician should rvinuin, and gave or
ders that he should not be permltcd to leave the
palace, and that lie should !e supplied
with every luxury and comfort for inanv
days. The king could not be induced to coun
termand ids former order, and Zanzlc was liter
ally a prisoner iu the most gorgeous and mag
nificent palace In the orient. He was treated
with tho gieatest consideration and kindness,
by heging, praying, threatening and with the
intervention of hii American Missionary, who
informed the king that theie would be trouble
unless his icttcd prisoner was allowed to di'iurt
as free as he came. After much parleying the
king reluctantly allowed the muglclun his liber

cul-inet was retained rs a fulfillment of the
promise, tho king paid the conjuror coon route!
and made the party handsome presents of gold
and embroidery work. While confined as
