It is reported that Annelmo's
vote on license was 30 to 0 , in favor
of the open saloon. It would indi
cate thnt there is no probability of
tbo town going dry soon.
Since Aguinaldo has been cap
tured and tnkon the oath of alleg-
iauoo to the United States , it will
bo in order for Pettigrow and a few
of his devoted followers in the
United States to follow suit.
The promotion of Fred Funston ,
to a brigadier general , as a rucogni-
lion of his ability and courage as a
soldier and commander , was the
correct thing to uo , and will moot
the general approval of the public.
The crowning feat was in the capture -
turo of Aguinaldo. While strata
gem was used , courage was also an
indisponsibla constituent of the
sticoees of the daring exploit. The
plan was his own , and the execu
tion of it depended wholly upon his
management. The service was of
invaluable moment to the American
Army , and the honor conferred up
on him , with the otnoliimontB in
cident thereto , wore worthily be

Jas , t. Mo Williams , an old
boldior. of the Union Army of the
sixties , has a valuable relic oi the
days of the civil war , of which ho
is justly proud. It is a copy of the
Union Volunteers , published at
Louisville , Kentucky , July 10th ,
1803 , by llankins & Walbridgo
The front page has red and blue
borders , and two largo flags adorn
the page printed in rod , with the
words Gettysburg and Vioks-
burg above them. The
paper gives a detailed account
of the rebels evacuation of Gettys
burg , and the surrender of Gen.
Pomuerton of Vioksburg to Gen.
Grant on July 4 , and the oommuni-
cations between them loading up to
the surrender. The paper is one of
the regular editions , which Mr.
MoWilliams received at the time as
a subscriber. Ho values the paper
very highly , and it in well that ho
This spring is most favorable
for tree planting. The opportun
ity should bo improved by every
land and lot owner in Custor
county. Arbor day does not come
until the 22 , but as this weather is
very suitable no ono should wait
for Arbor day. The town , espec-
iully , would be very greatly im
proved if ito streets , three blocks
from the public square , were lined
with thrifty trees. A popular sub-
Hcnption could easily bo raised to
purchase trees or to hire some
one to go to the Loups and secure
the necessary number to ornament
the lots and blocks unoccupied ,
three blocks from
the square on
Maine , Broadway and Cedar streets
and Third , Fourth and Fifth
avenues. We would suggest to
make the undertaking more certain
of Bucoesa that the city authoritioa
have ditohoH plowed along the line
of streets where the trees are to bo
planted a foot and a half deep , in
which to plant the trncs which
should bo left open for mulching
purpoHos and for additional pur
pose of convoying nioto of the rain
fall to llio trees. If the city will
have the dUohcH plowed out wn
behove most of the residents will
see to it that trees are planted on
their respective lots or blookfl , HO
there would be no expense to the
city oxoopt securing the trees I H
the plowing can be done with the

Aguinaldo would never give up.
Butho has. It they now assert ho
was influenced by the flesh pots of
Manila , or mouoy , then they must
have been sadly mistaken in dubb

right in that estimate of his intel
