About one hundred members of tl o
F internal Aid association of this city
went to Rivorton on a tpocinl train
last Tuesday evening to participate in
a banquet and general jubilee, the re
sult of a contest as to which lodge, the
lUd Cloud or Rivorton, could get tto
largest number of now members in a

Cloud won in tho conteit and Rivorton
entertained them right royally. The
party was mot at tho train by a band
and conducted to the placo of festivity
prepnrod for thorn. Tho Rivoiton
lodge spared no pains in their efforts
to mako tho Red Cloud lodgo enjoy
themselves. The program consisted
of a banquet, toasts, responses, sing

to make such occasions enjoyable.

At the council meeting Thur,duy
0'oning when the question of strut
nnd wator commissioner came up the
mayor took the stand that the city did
not noed n street commissioner with
the exception of about three months in
the year. In this action ho is com
mendable. 'A street commissioner is
needed during the poll tax season, but
during the balance of tho year paying
moDoy for a stroot commissioner is
just like giving some one a ponaiou.
If there is any work donoon the streets
tho city pays someono 9160 perduy
for doing it and pays the stroot commis
sioner 112 per month for tolling some
one to do it. We tako our stand with
the mayor. Let us havo a street com
missioner during July, August aud
September and no longer. If tho
mayor or couucilmen in their tiavels
around towu see something that iwjeds
lopairing it will bo no trouble for them
to ropoit it or get someono to fix It
without paying a twolve dollars a
month pension. Wo think just liko tho
mayor, cut off this pension and u-,e tho
$141 to pay for ninoty-sovou days of
