JUBILEE, CITt WATER,
Houso Burglarized, Going to Eu
rope, A Narrow Escape.
Durolars On Tuesday afternoon,
during the gloaming, burglars entered
tha residence of Miss Mollio Ferris
on North Seward street, by prying the
dtor open, and proceeded to ransaok
the house for valuables which they
succeeded ia finding. They hunted up
two wslohc?, rings, pint, and other
jewelry, and then decamped, getting
away in plenty of tnno to evade the
officers and cover their tracks seeming,
ly. Oc Wcdnosday, however, Sheriff
Hunchy arrested a suspect at Guide
Hook and brought him to this city,
where ho was held for tho crime. It
would bo well for people who have
valuable jewelry, etc., to put it in a
sccuro placo and not leave it around
on places exposed to viow, for bur
glars know putty well where to look
for such things and got them quite
easily as a general rule.
GoiNd to Kinioi'K. Last week our
reporter failed, by some error, to make
mention of tho departuro of Mr. Geo.
W. Darker and his mother to Etie,
Pa., their future home. Mr. Barker
and mother had lived in Hcd Cloud a
great many years nnd were vary high
ly respected. George, by persistent
effort and closo attention to business,
built up a very lucrativo law business
hero. He is a young man of sterling
qualities and will inako his mark in
tho world. The Chief wiehes him
prosperity in his new field. Wo un
derstand that he will sail for Europe
on tho Mill, where he goes for a year's
rocroation beforo settling down to
business perplexities again. Ho ex
pects to travel through all the princi
pal nations of the Orient before re
turning to America.
A Namiow Escape. The other
day, Jas. T. Emigh, living north of
lied Cloud about six milos, had a very
narrow escapo from sevrre injury. He
was riding on a largo drill, drilling in
oats, whon his doublo team of two
mules and two horses bocatnc fright
ened and ran away. Mr. Emigh lost
his hold on one of tho lines, but held
otto the other ono and was dragged
for a coasidcrable distance and badly,
though not seriously injured, but had
it not bcon for Stcycn Morrison run
ning befoio tho team at his own peril,
and thereby stopping them in thoir
wild career, Mr. Emigh might have
been uioro seriously injured. It was
a very oloso oall for Mr. E, who is a
largo ninn, and, of course, could not
handle himself as caBy as ho might
havo dono had ho bcon 20 years
Hk Got tiik Money. A follow
now living over in Kansas, and who
formerly lived in this county, depart
ed henco sometimo in 1885, leaving
behind him soino personal tax, which
ho supposed ho had escaped paying,
but it remained for our new oounty
treasurer, J. S. White, to disabuso bis
mind of tho fact, A fow days ago he
sent a draft to tho treasurer for sever
al dollars to bo applied on land. Tho
treasurer got tho draft quiotly cashed,
then sat down and wrote Mr. Man
that ho owod sumo personal tax, and
unless ho could show receipts for
same, tho money would bo applied on
tho personal tax. Tho fellow, in a
roturn letter, claimed everything but
could not show up, and hoped that ho
would be able to wash his hands sf
Webster county, but Mr, White hold
fast to tho money and thereby sayrd
Webstar county a goodly number of
dollais tliat sho would havo been beat
on out of had it not bon for his
Tiik Election. On last Tuesday,
tho city election lor municipal' officers
for tho next fiscal year took place,
and as a result the following officers
wero cleoted: For Major, W. B. Itoby;
O.ty Clerk, Will P. West; forTreasur
ir, U. W. Dow; Police Judge, Sam'l
West. Alderman, first ward, Ed
Pulsipher, second ward, It, si, Martin.
The ofiiocrs i-Kct aro men ot sterling
worth and will fill their offices with
credit, to the city, if our judgment is
not at fault.- Tho election was a sp'r
ited one, bul without a jar, as fur as
tho combatants were concerned, but
tho atiifo for tho various' fffi'ei was
perceptibly vigoroui and exciting. In
tho first ward tha regular republican
nominee Joo Kubick for alderman
was beaten by Ed Pulsipher, tho nom
inee on the citizens ticket, by four
votes. The mayoralty race was fraught
with more then general interest, as
both of the aspirants wero popular
mon and good republicans. Mr. Itoby,
won the raoo over his opponent .Mr.
Ocntly, by Ivo votes. Mr. Itoby was
the republican nominco and Mr. Bent
Icy headed the citizens ticket. Both
gentlemen wero well qualified to fill
tho office and for that reason their
ftiendi turned out in forco to give
them their support. The Ciurr is
satisfied with th election and boliovcs
that tho city, will not havo reason to
regret tho result.
A Narrow Escape. On last
Saturday afternoon a man by the
namo of O'Connor living in tho north
west part of this connty attempted to
start home in his buggy wirh n spirit
ed span of mules hitched to it. Wheth
er the mules wore full or tho man we
cannot say, but any way, tho mules
ran off and in perambulating up the
street the buggy polo was wrecked,
and so was O'Conncr in his
efforts M get out of tho ve
hicle and was only rescued
from bin perilous condition by the
bravery of men who risked their own
lives to save him from bodily icjury or
perhaps death. Tho mules wero final
ly stopped iu their mulish careor, and
the min disentangled and the buggy
taken te the blacksmith shop for re
pairs. When it was finished Mr. 0
went to the barn and got bis
mules and started with them to the
blacksmith shop to hitch on to the
buggy again, but bo had only got well
started, when he fell down and the
mules dragged dim from tho Holland
houso to tho Btato, bank building on
his stomach, where bo was again res
cued. It was a very olose call for the
man and it is the wonder of all that
ho did not recciyo serious injury from
tho way he was dragged around by the
team. He finally got flirted for home
and we presume reached thero safely,

Cm WatiJR. Red Cloud seems to
havo struok it rich as far as city
water is concerned if we aro tobelievo
Mr, Robert Yates, who made an expert
test of it ia this city. The gentle
man was testing tho water for scien
tific purposes, and freely stated that
U-:d Cloud had tho most pure water
that ho had discovered in tho west.
Ho found it to contain only a very
slight trace of magnesia, Tho city is
certainly to be congratulated on hav
ing suoh a fino supply of water, and
our outgoing mayor and counoilmen
as well aa thoso who hold over and
were prominent in getting water, feel
lated over tho test. The Chief has
no kick coming over the city water if
the supply is equal to the demand.

Tho riot thnt resulted bo f ntally wns
tho climax of n scries of smaller riots
that took placo at other points earlier in
tho day between tho samo opposing re
ligious factions. Tho riot took place on
tho Southwest boulevard very closo to
police station No. U, nnd thoso who took
part in it had been heated to tho fighting
temper by roporta that had been hourly
arriving nt the station of brawls at othor
polling places. Only nn hour beforo it
was known that John Qooloy, a stone
mason, was Bhot in tho back nnd fore
head by William Henry Walker nt a
voting plnco nt tho corner of Fifth nnd
Campbell streets, and tho row was re
garding tho principles of tho Amoricau
Protectivo association, to which Uoolcy

IxjuiI Threat of Mobbing.
Tho Americnn Protectivo Association,
which supported "Webster Davis, tho
Republican cundidnto for mayor, had
their workers ut tho different polling
places nnd thoy distributed in somo pre
cincts their own tickets, bearing their
enndidnto's namo nnd decorated with tho
American flag. Jim Pryor, n Fifth
ward iwlitician, antagonistic to tho
American Protectivo Association, who
supiwrtod Frank Johnson, tho lnbor
factional Democratic candidate, was ac
tivo nt tho bend of 50 constables which
ho got Justice Latshaw to appoint Mon
day night. It was said by somo that
these constables wero, many of them, ir
responsible characters nnd wero solely
tho cnuso of tho trouble. Consequently
thero wero loud threats of mobbing
thorn beforo thoy wero got to headquar
ters after tho bloody riot was over.
llattlo Won or Short Duration.
It is claimed that ono of Pryor's fol
lowers fired tho first shot. Tho ono was
Miko Callahan and bo was a dead man
tho next moment. Then tho battlo
began, the deputy constables nt this poll
ing booth nnd tho workers of nil tho
political factions crowded together in a
solid mns.s nlwut 100 strong and every
one seemed to lw armed. For a minute
or two tho discharge of weapons sounded
liko a volley of musketry by a regiment.
Hundreds of citizens gathered at every
point of vontngo to witness tho battle,
which, however, was of short duration.
Tho onlookers trembled with excitement.
Mnny of tho residents nlong tho boule
vard added to tho general feeling of
terror by leaning from their windows,
shouting nnd gesticulating wildly. In
lens than live minutes from tho timo tho
first shot was fired, however, tho blue
coats from station No. 8 had appcarod
upon the sccuo and quieted the disturb
