Seme four weeks ago The Chief
suggested' that Aaron Conover would
make a proper person to fill the va
cancy at the B. & M. depot as agent
in the place of Mr. Harris whose
death occmed some time since. Mr.
Conover although a young man has
made hosts of friends in this city dur
ing his career in the office as a clerk,
which has heen some four years, and
it was no more than right that he
should have the appointment. In
view of the fact .a few of his friends
Droented a very strong petition to
that effect to Superintendent Camp
bell, signed by all of our citizens, and
we are glad to know, that that gen
tleman seeing how highly Mr. Con
over was esteemed by the business
men of this city, made the appoint
ment without any hesitancy. Aaron
is a worthy young mac wio will do
the B. & M. good service as agent.
The Chief was highly pleased over
his appointment, believing that his fi
delitvand integrity will be the means
of still bettering his condition as the
years roll by, at least there is not one
mi in a hundred that rises from a
clerk in the office to as a responsible
position as igent at lied Cloud with
out colas through the regular routine
of promotion. Ue will make a sen
tlennnly and courteous agent and we
wish h'in success in his nsw position.

The case of the stite of Nebraska
against Van Benson was up for trial
this week iu the district court, and
after the evidence had been given in
the jury took the case, and after due
deliberation they returned a verdict
of assault, the penalty for which will
be not more than ninety day.i. The
case has already cost the county sev
eral Lanirci dollars, and it seems
preposterous that justice should be
so slow, especially in a case like the
one mentioned. It is simply a farce.
The fight was over a small, insignifi
cant hog. valued all told at not more
than ten dollars, and there is no doubt
but what it will cst the county fully
a thousand dollars before it is finish
ed. This perpetual warfare carried on
by the Republican, Democrat and
Helmet is becoming very distasteful
to the people. Now that "the elec
tion is over and the people have said
let the war on our citizens stop for a
i time at least. If the bi" S have
triumphed by underhanded irirks in
electing a democrat over a republi
can, let that suffice, and don't be
come to vaia-glorious. for a time may
come it will be decidedly distasteful
to have refered to the matter. Then
acain, it don't look well fur the bi:r S
to erow over the success of a demo
crat. wKp:i they are alleged republi
cans. The fact; are that the boy
were a little gc-l-ricu over the mat
ter not bccinse they had downed the
frimr, as- they they term the republi
can jartvbnt because lacy secured
the coutroll of the county funds.
Gentlemen the election is over, and
we were in hopes the war had closed,
and as fir as this paper ic concerned,
it is over for the prestnt, unless the
handsome doctor and his tribe of As-
tec? insist on pecomme too irasn.

An attempt is being made on the
part of a few of of our citizens to get
Marshal Shinkle removed, on the ba
sis of economy, while really we think
the influence being used is sinister.
the facts being more properly based
on spite work on the part of some
who could not use the marshal.
Now is the time that a marshal is
needed, and while The Chief is al
ways in for economy, it is not in for
discharging police officers just in the
time when they are needed. We are
like the Mexican greaser in that re
spect when he was upbraided by iiis
pastor for. car ryiug a revolver. The
preacher thought that it had been
fully demonstrated, in six months
time, to his mind that there was no
naed of carrying weapons in Texas,
to which the greaser replied "that he
might live there forty years and not
need a revolver, but when he did need
it, he would need it d d bad,"
and that is the way with our city
marshal, we may not need him all the
time but when we do need him we
need him bad. There are plenty of
other ways that the city can econo
mize besides economizing to the in.
jury of the psople.

M. Martin &
Chiriey Fentrick was in the city
this week, looking up a note which he
pave to Dr. Jauss in lieu of treat

be ieom for complaint in his case, as
the doctor only gave her two doses of j
medicine which failed to cure, and
failing to cure the doctor is not en
titled to recover. Generally men
who takes up with frauds of similar
character are not entitled to sympathy
because they are being contiually
warned by the press to desist, but on
the other hand, a man is justified in
doing all he can to case the ills that

of one of our business men this week
