Meeting of County Chairman.
Joseph Pigmau , chairman of
the republican county central
committee , went to Lincoln to
day to attend a meeting of the
chairm-n of like committees
from every county in the state.
This melting was called by
State Chairman Haywpod for
the purpose of getting in touch
with the party workers over the
state. It will be seen from this
that our State Chairman means
business and does not propose to
let the democrats make any gains
in this state. The meeting will
result in great good to the party
and if the chairman of the differ
ent counties will do the work
assigned them and get others to
help Nebraska will roll up a good
round majority for the next presi
dent , Hon. Wm. If. Tall.

Horse Becomes Frightened at righting
Dogs. Victor Is Thrown And Meets
Death In A Horrible Manner.
Funeral Was Held Sunday.
Victor Laudrctb , who wou'd '
have been six'eeu years old the
2nd of next December , wa1 * 1 < tiled
by his horse in a horrible manner
last Saturday night about sun
down , near 1m > ister'rt home
twelve miles southwest of this
city. The facts as stated to us
are that he saddled his horsr- to
go over to his t'isters. Mrs. Win.
Kansleyat about sundown and he
ued his brothers saddle. The
stirrups being too long he turned
them over to make them shorter
and used them that way.
On arriving at his sisters home
his horse became frightened at
some dogs which were fighting
ami ( threw Victor. One foot got
caught in the stirrup strap and
with head down the. horse ran
with him for nearly a mile going
through several wire fences in
his mad dash before the boy was
finally freed from the stirrup.
When relatives and neighbors
found Victor he was terriably
mangled and unconscious and
died of his injuries in a few
moments without recognizing
any of them. It is a sad blow
to his relatives and friends to be
called to his last home so sudden
and in such a violent manner.
He leaves his father C. II. Lan-
dreth , his brother Burrell and
two sisters , Mrs. Wm. Ransley
and Mrs. George Logan , to go
and meet his mother on the other
side of the river of Death who
died when V.ictor was but a small !
boy. He also leaves a host of
friends in his community to mourn
his sudden death for he was lov
ed by all who knew him. The
teacher to whom Victor last went
to school says that she had no
better boy in her school than he
was. That he was a studious
and a hard working boy and that
he will be greatly missed by his
playmates. Short funeral ser
vices were held in Broken Bow
Cemetary at four o'clock Sunday
afternoon conducted by Rev * J.
D. Brady of the Baptist Church
of this city. The bereaved rela
tives certainly have the heartfelt
sympathy of the entire commun
ity in their great sorrow.
Protect Your Town.

May Break Solid South.
From a letter published in the
Atlanta Constitution , written by
Robert J. Lovvry , a
crat and banker of Atlanta ,
Corgi a , it would seem that Talt
would break the solid South this
year. The letter was a column in
length and is a strong appeal to
the voters to support Mr. Tafl ,
Following is a Karl of Mr. Low-
ry's letter :
"Thousands upon thousands of
the good white people of Georgia
are going to cast their votes for
Judge Taft , and why not enough
of them to give him a plurality ?
Why not ? We have had many
political surprises in Georgia ,
some of such recent date as to
yet be fresh in ( he minds of ev
eryone , and many arc to come in
the future. It is not a rash state
ment to make that , if President
Roosevelt had consented to serve
his country another term , the
state of Georgia would have cast
its vote for him ! Then why not
for Judge Taft , who is pledged
to carry forward the liberal poli
tics of the retiring president , and
who was the choice of the retir
ing president , as his successor ?
It has been uiy great pleasure
to enjoy the friendship of Judge
Taft for some years past , and I
have never met a more brilliant
statesman , a more astute and
affable diplomat or a more polish
ed gentleman. This tribute I
pay to him as a friend , and not
as a political opponent of the
democrats. I regard him as one
of the strongest characters before
the public today , and the ideal of
business , commercial and indus
trial interests of the country for
president. The country cannot
afford to do otherwise than elect
Judge Taft , and it would be a
great step for progress if Georgia ,
the empire state of the south ,
should cast its vote for this emi
nent jurist , statesman and
patriot. "
Republicans Should Get Busy.
In ihc campaign this fall the
opposition will leave no stone
unturned by which they can
secure a vote , and it behooves
every republican who wishes to
sec his county , slate and nation
al ticket elected by increased
majorities to get busy arid see to
it that no voters are lost and
that many are gained. Work
should commence at once and
continue until the primary is
held at which time none but
rood , clean , capable men should
be chosen to go on the ticket.
If this is done and the work con
tinued until the polls close the
republican party in Custer coun
ty will make a clean sweep.
Judge Humqhrey Right.
Some of the politions on the
opposing side tried recently to
make out that Judge Humphrey
did not know what he was talk
ing about when he said that
Bryan had nev r carried his own
precinct or county in his race for
president in 18 % and 1'JOO.
Judge Humphrey , whose repu
tation for truth ad veracity is
gilt edged in Custer County , in
order to prove his statement
wrote the clerk of Lancaster
county and received the follow
ing reply which fully substan
tiates the Judge :
Office of County Clerk Lan
caster County , Lincoln , Nebras

LARfil' ' CROWDS Wlilll : IN Al IhlSDANCI !
Nearly I'.very Atlrnclion As Atherlisoil.
Some Were Changed , Conlil Have
lleen ( teller Say Our People.
Next Years Should -Be.
The Chautauqua closed Sun
day niiht ; with ilu usual large
crowd in attendance which
greeted every attraction during
the nine days. While it was not
given in SOUK ; instances as adver
tised , for various reasons , yet the
Chantauqua was good-as a whole
and furnished our people nine
days of pleasant and instructive
.past time. Whenever the man
agement found that it could not
fill the program as was advertis
ed they suhsilitutcd another at
traction in its stead so that the
people had something to see or
listen to three times a day.
Without going into detail on
eacli one of the numbers , as wo
would like to do , suffice it to say
that each one was gdod and well
received hy our people generally.
Of course there was disappoint
ment on the part of our people
who came from a distance to
hear some special one and had to
listen to another. Perhaps the
greatest disappointment was felt
by .our Catholic friends who came
from far and near to hear the lit.
Rev. Mgr. TV Henry Tihn and
found that he was unable to be
The m in a go me tit was not to
blame for his not being here nor
the -ibsence of Judge B. Lindsey
who was sick. Arrangements
are , being made by the Red path
people for another week here
next season and they promise to
have a daily change of attrac
tions and not run them two days
asThcy did this year.
Mr. Pettit , the superintendent
and manager , did everything in
his power to make the people
comfortable and make their stay
pleasant. In him the Redpath
system have a man that is second
to none for the place he fills.
Prof. J. R. Teagarden was
complimented on every hand by
the business men of our city iu
the manner of handling the
financial interests of the Chan-
tauqua , by the great crowds and
the speakers for his courteous
treatment toward all attending.
It was frequently said that he
seemed especially adapted for
Chautauqua work.
There is no question but what
a Chautauqua is a good thing
for a town in more ways than
one and should be encouraged by
all. Yet it seems to u * that it
should be entirely under the con
trol of home people working in
conjunction with other towns
that run their own. This could
be done by conferring with the
management in other towns in
regard to the talent they will
have and engage the same. By
way of suggestion why not the
Commercial Club or the Civic
Improvement Club take hold of
the Chaulauqua move and
handle it in the future ? Think
this matter over.
Old Settlers Picnic at Callaway.
The old settlers of Callaway

beeu arranged for and a large
crowd is expected. Attorney H.
M. Sullivan and Attorney J. R.
Dean of this city will be theic to
deliver addresses , which goes
without saying that their audi
ence will be well pleased. All
who can should attend this
picnic as the Callawuy people
know how to entertain their
Moves to Gordon.
H. D. Huntingtoti shipped his
household goods to Gordon , Ne
braska , Tuesday , where with his
estimable1 family , he will make
his future home. Wo under
stand that Mr. lluntington will
engage in the mercantile busi
ness in that city. During their
residence in Broken Bow they
made many friends who will
miss them and at the same time
wish them prosperity in their
I new home.

dates who arc seeking offices on
his party ticket and before and
