Alexander, was the titlo of a case

Tho complaining witness John

ant, did on or about July Gth, ab
stract and take from his herd one
red female calf throe days old, and
of the value of 7.00 gold standard.
Constable Harry Piorco arrested
Alexander and brought him be
fore tho court. Tho State requested
a continuance until Saturday but
the prisoner stated that ho desired
to atteftd tho populist convention
on that day, so the caso by agree
ment was set for Monday, while
Cou&tablo Harry Piqrco fills tho
place of stepmother to tho calf.
Alexander says it is a caso of
mistaken identity, and that if the
calf belongs to Potmcsil, it was
inadvortantly takon,' which wo
hop ,ntiy b true. ' '

amounting to much.
Dick Bevan is homo again and
heartily welcomed by his many
friends. Dick is a very eco
nomical young man, and in or
der'to save tho faro. from Craw
ford took a steerage berth on
the bumpers, of No. 40. This
proved a very hot dusty place,
but the fireman took pity on tho
tourist and turned the engine hoso
on him, and continued tho shower
bath intorsporscd with chunks of
coal, '.ioWfie stones etc., until tho
train arrived in Hemingford, and
without waiting for tho train to
stop,' ho gave a leap which
would have cleared tho right of
wov, had not his head made con
nectidn with a bank, and which
rendered him "spacholess" for
awhile. Dick says, "I bate tho
bloody corporation out of SI. 50
W, H. Hubbcll a prominent
stockman of the Sand Hills, with
headquarters at Alliance was
murdered at Lakeside Sunday
morning. When tho deceased
was found life was not extinct,
'but ho did not recover sufficient
consciousness to utter a word.
He was lying on his back, and
had both hands in his pockets
and legs crossed. The only
wound found on him was a gash
about 24; inches long a little to
tho left of tho crown of the
head, with a hole through tho
skull nearly one inch long, from
which any fair man would necos
sarily conclude that tho wound
was made by a blunt instrument
or weapon, and that Ilubboll was
murdered. Ho was not murder
ed for what money or valuables
ho had on his person, for noth
ing had been disturbed. Certain
parties in the hills aro suspected,
and Sheriff Sweeney and other
friend of the dead man expect
somo development soon.
It is gonorally and justly con
ceeded that on tho reocurronco of
the glorious Fouth of July, that
tho patriotic and enthusiastic
small boy shall bo allowed a
great deal of latitude in his con
duct and granted privileges not
accorded to him at any other
time; bnt when theso privileges
are abused, and exceeded as
they wore on the morning of the
Fourth by Bortie Gilman and a
few other small thougthless
boys, it is timo that public
opinion should domand a halt.
Tho offence to which wo refer,
was mat, ot tiring guns ana
cannon crackers, at an unseemly
hour, under tho bed room win
dows of slumbering citizens.
Noithor the aged, tho sick, tho
schoolma'am nor tho minister
wore oxompt from their thought
loss and unearthly x-acket. Tho
offence will bo condoned this
time, but tho parties aro warned
that a ropetiton of it may result
in consequences sorions to them
selves. SOpnimdiof lorgtj California
