tho same opinion.
If tho mnuagcrs of tho Hastings street

tho amount of $250, tiro tho values
placed upon Ins personal belonging
by Mr. Win, J. Bryan in answer to tho
tax assessor of Lincoln.
Next Thursday at tho court hotiso in
this city will occur thu republican
comity convention. From present in
dications the convention promises to
to bo a harmonious one The only
olllco over which thero it liKely to be
any exciting contest is that of .sheriff.
Thu largo numbur of ca ldiilntcs for
that oillcu Indicate a hard pull for the
nomiualion, However it is to be hoped
that it will not result in a lot of otllce
sucking sore-heads after tho conven
tion is over. Only ouo of tho many can
bo nominated, and tho tost should
stand by tho decision of thu cuvcutlnu.
According to all reports thu pops
were hopping piad thu next morning
aftor thu statu convention, when they
went out on the streuls and hi'tird the
cries of thu newsboys: "Morning pa
pers, all about thu democratic conven
tion." Thu populists supposed that
they al.so had huld a convention until
they run across ex-Suuator Allen and
Win. J. Bryan. Then they began to
doubt it, but aftor they heard the ciy
of tho nowsboys it dawned upon them
that they might as well havo sent in
their uudorsomunts by mail and saved
thu wear and tear on their railroad
J. W. Uuuchoy has, nt tho earnest
solicitation of his friends, decided to
again bu a candidate for tho oillce of
sheriff, For a time John positively re
fused to bo a candidate on nccottnt of
his other duties, but now that ho is
foot-loose he has nt last succumbed to
kls friends wishos. If past records
onunt for anything John will bo found
a strong caudidato, as for four years
be made ouu of the best sheriffs Web
ster county ever had. He proved him
self during his term of oflleo to bo a
natural born criminal hunter and no
uilininnt uns too mu-iII foi litm to inn
down He would take jtitl nt much
trouble to hunt down u man who stole
chickens one wh. lobbed a 'bunk.
Although .liilin may be ti little lute in
entering the race, thu balance of the
aspirants will hud thai he bus iimnik

Do We Want Pure Wattr.
J. E W. Richards, n well mnu from
Arapahoe, was in tho city the foru part
of the week, having come here at the
request of the city authorities for thu
put pose of looking over thu ground to
secure a supply of water suillcieut for
our city's needs. lr. iticnarus is a
practical well man, and clearly demon
strated to thu authorities that plenty
of pure water could bo had at thu situ
of tho small test wull put down Inst
week In fact ho is so Haugiiiun of it
that lie is willing to make a contract to
out in a well nl that point and euaratiteo
it to furnish 100,000 gallons of water
per day. Hu oilers two propositions to
thu council, as follows: First, to make
a system of ten drive wells along thu
course of tho gravel bed found in thu
test well and connect the satno to thu
pumping station by pines, for SO'.T)
when thu above tun wells shall have
beun successfully driven and linished
and on a test will supply 100,000 gal
lons ner dav. moro than can bo at pres
ent obtained. Second, to make a well
sixteen feet in diameter, Inlcked up,
with eight snudpotnts on thu inside of
snld wnll, driving samu through thu
brick sides thereof to a dlstanco t-f
from llftoon to thirty fuettuto thu grav
el, wherever required to obtain tho
greatest How of water. This wull will
cost 91,000, payablo after it has been
aomplcted and connected to pumping
tatluu, aud upon lust will supply 100,
000 gallons of water per day. more than
is at thu present time furnished by tho
water s vsiem. l ucso are mo two prop
ositions as submitted by Mr. Richards,
aud they certainly seem very fair inas
much as hu is willing lo guarantee his
work aud insure a plentiful supply of
pure water, somulhkng this city has
never had. However, thu city council
has urn desire to call down upon their
heads thu maledictions of some un-
Sratufui people for such useless expen
iture as some chooso to call it, with
jut giving everyone nu opportunity to
exptess luuir viuws of tho question.
For thu purpose of gutliug too senti
ment of tbo peoplo on this subject the
mayor has called n cilizou's meeting
tor next Monday Inight nt 8 o'clock,
at the Fireman's Hall at which Mr.
Uichnrds will be present and thorough
ly explain hlo proposed plans, and
ovoryouo iuterested In pure drinking
water should be there. If you want
pure water that will be the time to say
so, aud if you don't caro enough about
pure water to attond tho meeting and
say so the council may take it for
granted that you are satistiod with
water tillered through pig pens, cow
yards aud manure piles in dry weather
wheu the water in tho present wells
nets short, and lot tho puro water ques
tion urop. ii you are interested in
