While the railroads are on Iho
move why not Broken Bow make
an attempt to secure an extension
of the U. P. road from Loup Oily
to this city ?
Is it not about time there was a
change in the oftioo of oity treasur
er ? If not , give the present in
oumbent a life lease , and put a atop
to further agitation.
No one in the oity ia bettor qual-
ih'od to fill the position of council
man than A. R. Humphrgy of the
third ward. There should bo no
question of his election , His reo
ord ou the board the past year
merits his return.
It is rumored that the U. f. rail
road company is at work west of
Loup City coming in a westernly
direction , but wo doubt it. If the
citizens of this oity want the U. P.
ro&d they will have to put forth an
effort to secure it.
There is no man in the second
ward more deserving of a unani.
DIOUB support than J. W. Bruce for
councilman. He is one of the most
highly respected cituens of the
oity , and highly competent ( o fill

Ed Royoe is the man to see that
saloons should run as near as poisi-
blo in compliance with law. He
does not patroniio the saloons and
is not in league with thorn. He is
in a position to demand that laws
shall bo enforced whether license erne
no license , and for that reason
every law abiding citizen should
give him their support.
How would It do to make the domo-
cratlo ticket liryau und Aguin&ldo ?
The latter will evidently bo In barmony

occupancy of the L'bilipijlnoa , and could

General Otis will huvo Aguinaldo

at least one live candidate , neither
of them will bo available in 1900 , if
Bryan continues his suicidal course
in which ho is now engaged.
"Anti gambling" is the cry of
the "Citizens convention" , and they
"deplore" what the present ad
ministration has done The republicans
cans have stated what they will do
with this evil in their platform , and
it is a notioablo fact that the "GitU
r.enii" have adopted the same plat
form , plank for plank , with the
pledge loft out , but to make
it look different liavo changed the
arrangement and claim it us orig
inal. The platforms of the two
tickets being the same , the only
question is which set of candidates
comes the nearest , as individuals'in

License or no license i the ques

parties t ave submitted the question

The Chief in its last issue , in itn
iiHtnl insinuating way'attacks the
city administration under rupubli
oin oflicialH , during the pant two
yearn. A statement of Iho city's
financial condition easily shows the
falacy of the Chief's statements.
The republicans , when they as
sumed control of the oity affairs in
May , 1897 , found that they had in
herited some $1,100 of debts of
other adiniiiist re-lions , reaching
back to the year 1803 , and immedi
ately commenced the ta.s * of pay
ing of the accumulated debts of
other administrations , and running
the business of the oily in such a
manner as to prevent the accumu
lation of other dobts. How well
they have done this the report of
W. D. Blaokwcll , city treasurer ,
made to the council last Thursday
night , answers. It is as follows :

By investigating the oity clerk's
records we find that to
this last item must be added
aeveral claims where no provision
has been made for payment , am
ounting to nearly $300 , making a
total debt of $1,105 coming down
from former administrations , which
will in the next year be paid. The
republican officials of our oity
therefore have run the affiirs of the
oity for two years , and now have a
cash balance of nearly $500 on
hand ; and adding to this cash on
hand the undrawn portion of the
eighty-five per cent of the levy the
law gives thorn a right to dra/
against , amounting to about $200 ,
it will permit this administration
to pay off all debit it has incurred ,
and still have about $700 available
funds in their hands at the end of
their terms , of which more than
half will be spot cash , The two
heavy Horns of liabilities in the
above report are $278 in street and
bridge fund of 1898 , and $24545
general fund of 1808. These war
rants are drawn against 85 per eont
of the levy for 1808 , and the taxes
for their payment have just fallen
due. It is probable that before the
end of the prosout officers' terms
they will bo paid. The oity there
fore has not run behind for the past
two years. Debts have not been
contracted nor permitted to accum
ulate beyond the city's ability to
pay. The affairs of the city have
been reduced to a cash basis , and
no one who has labored for the oity
has had to wait for his pay. It
needed junt such an administration
as the republicans have given us to
got the affairs of the city in shape.
We are now pa > ing our debts as wo
go , end credit is duo to Mayor
Graham and Clerk Moore for put
ting us ou a cash bam. They
found us badly in debt and the
affairs of the oity being run with
out regard to when payment of
doblH should bo made. They
chocked extravagenou and put ut
on the light track.BO that our in
come can moat our obligations , and
leave us a nest egg of $000 or $700
to turn over to our successors in
office , in lieu of $1,100 unpaid bills ,
And it will bo a hard matter for
the Chief to find a taxpayer in town
who does not endorse the r-form
made by republican officials in the
financial management of city affairs.
The republican tiokat is composed
of ncn who balieve in good city
government , and ara pledged to use
their ufl'ort to see that [ law and
order in maintained , Every leveret
ot good order will have no hosilanry
in easting their ballot for the
straight republican ticket.

Outi in ixansas
lives a happy wife. She writes : " I
have used Mother's Friend before
two confinements. The last time I had
twins , and was In labor only a few min
utes. Suffered very little. " The reason
whyMother's Friend
does expectant mothers so much
good is because It is an external liniment ,
to bo applied upon the outside , where
much of the strain comes. It helps be
cause the pores of the skin readily absorb
It , and it comes Into direct contact with
and is absorbed by the parts Involved.
Morning sickness is quickly banished ,
and nervousness is kept completely away.
The sense of dread and foreboding is not
experienced , even during labor itself.
Confinement is short and almost without
pain. Recovery is quick and sure. Best
of all , Mother' * Friend benefits the
unborn just as much as the expectant
mother , and when the little one comes it
will be strong , lusty and healthy.
