It is an old score reopened. Some
years ago Mr. Bergflsld came to the
eity and purchased liquor at Roth
rock's saloon, and oa the road home,
became so intoxicated that he upset
his wagoa and killed himself. The
case has been tried several times and
finally went to the supreme court
where we understand it was dismissed
Now ccmes Jno. O. Yeiser. as guar
dian ad litem for the minor heirs and
reopens the case for the children in
the district court. The proposition
now is to ecover damages eff of the
bondsmen for the killing of the fath
er through the intoxicants alleged to
have been procuied of Rothrock.
The Chief during its career in the
last 17 years has built more railroads
than anyone in the Gate City of the
Republican valley. The Chief aid
ed in building the only road we have,
and has always been ready and wil
ling and with its influence in buil
ding an others that might come this
way, yet tvithout the concerted ac
tion of our entire community nothing
can be accomplished in the line of
enterprises, where money is at stake.
By reference to a Hasting? paper we
notice that the Grand Islam! railway
is to be built to the southwest.
What is the matter with oar people
that we can not make an effort to g.-t
it? If railroads will make Red Cloud
let's get them, if net, hold oar peace.

Mrtally Fatal. h Arrestee.
On Wednesday morning Red Cloud
was thrown into a fever of excite
ment by John Wilhelmson appearing
op our street in an excited manner,
announcing that Van Benson, while
quarreling with Winfield Palmer, had
shot and wounded him three time,
and supposed that he was fatally in
jured. Finally prosecuting attornftv
Willcox got out the necessary pape.s
for Benson's arrest, and Sheriff Scote;
Joe Warner and H. B. Simons went
out to Van Benson's farm, eight
miles north-west of Red Cloud and
arrested him. He was brought Co
this city and held for trial before
Judge Barker, the state producing the
only evidence, introinced, which was
enough to hold him however, until
toe district court. His bond
fixed at 13500.
It is difficult to tell the cause of
the rumpus any further than the two
men, whose farms adjoin each other
have been it ous for several years, as
is alleged, and have been quarreling
over one thing and another uatil i
fiaauly culminated in the shooting
affray of Wednesday. The cause of
Wednesday's trouole it seems was
over a hog that Palmer had lost and
claimed that Benson had it. 'This
Benson denied, and says he offered
Palmer $25 if he could prove it.
Ohc word brought on another and
finally Benson pulled a 32 Smith k
Wesson revolver on Palmer, shooting
him three times, twice in the abdo
man. and once in the shoulder, mak
ing serious wounds, though not neces
sarially fatal ones. A number of
conflicting stories were reported, but
our reporter was unanle to sift the
fracas any further, than it was caus
ed from general bid blood on both
sides. What the result will be is
hard to tell. Benson is still in cus
tody of Sheriff Scott, having failed so
far, to give his bond.
